Pleasant Surprise Cinema

I’ve always been a lover of vampire movies, James Bond movies, 80’s teenage girl movies, action-packed ass kicking movies, science fiction/fantasy movies, and the occasional romance movie.  If you haven’t guessed it, I like to watch movies.  I had no idea when I married Thor that one day we would have a movie theater in our house, go figure.

Well, today I was feeling under the weather so I purposely laid low while entertaining Maximus Rex.  He had eaten lunch and I was browsing on my movie channels for some background entertainment.  I chose “Paddington“, thinking in the back of my mind I’ll change it to something else.  The exact opposite happened and we ended up (really me) watching the whole movie.  Sure, Nicole Kidman as the villain made me smile, but I just liked the entire movie from beginning to end.

I have to admit when this movie first came out I thought, “Oh, another kids movie with a talking bear.”  It’s funny though, when you end up having a kid you tend to tune into movies they might enjoy and have a good message.  Today this happened, and I have to say I have special place in my heart now for this movie.  I highly recommend it if you need a break from a animated children’s movie and you’re in a need of a warm fuzzy two hours.
