Movie Day!

Our family has a tradition on the Friday after Thanksgiving. And no, it’s not shopping for all those Black Friday deals. Since 1990 we’ve designated Black Friday as Movie Day.

And the movie that won the honor this year is…. Penguins of Madagascar.

My daughter is to blame for picking this flick and no one could tell her no. It looks cute, and funny, and I love cute & funny. Besides, they're PENGUINS! And those penguins were the best part of Madagascar. Movie time today is 11am (EST). I’ll let you know in the comments how it was.

We might have picked The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I, but my daughter went and saw it last Saturday, so my husband, our son, and I saw it on Tuesday (discount Tuesday!!). Good movie. The moviemakers have done a good job with this series. I’m almost shocked! I loved the books and you know how it is when books are adapted to the screen. They usually bomb, right?

So…what movies have you seen lately? And did you brave the crowds today?

Thanks, Mac! And it's not snowing, either (like it was yesterday). Yay!

Hey all! I'm back from the movies. Penguins was cute, but not a keeper (meaning, I won't buy the DVD when it comes out--although I'm sure my daughter WILL). If you go and see it, pay attention to all the play-on-celebrity-names! I'm sure I missed a few. :)

I don't really remember the last movie we watched at the movie house. It's been too long.

But at home, I've been enjoying 1.2 star Christmas movies.
