Paul Bettany as a bad-ass angel? I’m in. Watched “Legion” and I was entertained. There were several good laughs and the action nut in me was satisfied. It isn’t as serious as The Prophecy or as tongue-in-cheek as Demon Knight. It’s probably right in between. Not to mention that Bettany made defending mankind look so good. I did think that Dennis Quaid was going to have a larger part and last until the end, but what happened to his character was sufficient.

I paid $11.00 and I was happy to see it on the big screen.
To celebrate Valentine’s Day with my children, I took them to see “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.”
My oldest is 8 years old. I thought this would be a great movie for her to watch and secretly, I was hoping there wouldn’t be any dating/kissing scenes that I’d have to address later. Fortunately for me, there wasn’t!

As my kids are getting older, I’m finding out more and more the importance of having good, family films to watch in the theaters. Fortunately, we saw the preview for this and my daughter really wanted to see it.
“Now in the care of Dave Seville’s nephew (Zachary Levi), Alvin, Simon and Theodore take a break from pop-music stardom and return to school. Almost immediately, the tiny tunesmiths are given the giant task of saving their school’s music program by winning a battle of the band’s contest. Though the boys think winning the contest will be easy, romantic and musical sparks fly when they meet Brittany, Eleanor and Jeannette — also known as The Chipettes.”
It turned out to be a fantastic choice for the children and they were entertained every minute! It had a great story, songs that they loved, and the content was appropriate.
