Hurricane Sandy really beat New York City up yesterday. Many people had their power knocked out and left other’s with big messes to clean up from their house flooding. Today many people are still home because schools were canceled and the MTA is still out of commission. Also many of us who still have power, might have friends and family over who lost power and need something to do which makes it a perfect day to sit at home and watch some movies. Here is a list of some really good movies to watch with the family with nothing to do and for those of us tired of watching the news:
Home Alone (1&2)- These are really funny movies as many adults know and a lot of kids have never seen them, so it would be a good time to introduce them to two good “old school” movies.
Transformers (1-3)- All of them were good if you are just looking for actions movies and to get out of your head for a few hours, but if you are only going to watch one of them, pick the first, it’s the best.
Mirror Mirror- This is the lighter side of Snow White, which brings comedy to the movie and is something that the kids would enjoy.
Snow White and the Huntsman- This is a darker take on Snow White, that is more suited for older children and the adults.
Iron Man (1&2), Thor, Captain America, The Avengers – All of these movies are related and if you just want to have a superhero sort of day, these are all good movies to watch. On the surface they don’t seem to relate to each other, but as most people know, once you get to the Avengers they all come together to kick butt.
The Hunger Games- This is a really good book that was made into an amazing movie. This movie will have you in tears at times, so have your tissues ready.
Madagascar (1-3)- This is for the children in all of us because these movies are amazing no matter what age you are. Watching these crazy animals trying to get back to New York and all of the adventures they go through is hilarious and will have the whole family in a better mood.
Magic Mike- This is for adults so if the kids are around I wouldn’t watch this, it is about male strippers. So if the men are around, ladies I wouldn’t watch it either they might not like the way you yell and scream at the screen after these hot men get undressed.
Think Like a Man- This is a funny movie with a really good message: that we need books to be able to date the opposite sex. That’s not really the message, but it is fun and shows you many of the different types of people out there and will have you thinking, which one am I?
