Movies

I am always on the lookout for good clean movies for my boys to watch. Some of Rock's favorites right now are: Cars, Megamind, and The Tigger Movie. I also allow him to watch major parts of Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs and Toy Story. We fore go the mutated food scenes in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and all the parts that take place at Sid's house in Toy Story (I skip from when they are leaving pizza planet to when they start chasing the moving truck). Trying to keep our son from seeing certain images is still in our control at this point and I, by the grace of God, intend to do just that.

So movies that we do approve (all the way through) for our boys at this time: VeggieTales, Cars, Megamind, The Tale of Depereaux, The Tigger Movie, The AristoCats, Joseph: King of Dreams, and Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron

Today I looked up some reviews on How to Train your Dragon to see what others thought of it. I have seen it but not with criteria for what my sons should watch in mind. I found one really good review at the blog: Thinking Christian I especially like the comment that was left... I had never seen it that way before but it is so true! I also like this review site: http://www.movieguide.org/reviews.html
After reading the reviews I decided this movie is not for my boys at such young ages.

Oh be carefull little eyes what you see...

Your eye is a lamp that provides light for your body. 
When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light.  
But when your eye is bad, your whole body is filled with darkness. 
And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, 
how deep that darkness is!
Matthew 6:22, 23 (NLT)
