I finally got around to seeing Ice Age and Monsters Inc. Great flicks! Now I'd like to see Finding Nemo. :D

I really like these types of movies. I can't remember one I didn't like. They teach morals, have clean language, contain humor for kiddies and adults, and display cool animation.

They're a breath of fresh air. They're light, funny and simple. I still like traditional animation, and sci-fi digital animation like Final Fantasy, though.

Any family films that y'all would like to share with us? (doesn't need to be animation) :P

Anything by Disney and/or Pixar is usually good.

Movies here are $7.50. I hate paying that much, but then I've got to take a step back and remember I was paying around $6.00 in Orlando back in the mid 80's. It prolly costs them around $13.00 now. :oops: Shait???

I kept on editing the prices in the polls, because I rarely go to the big screen to watch movies these days and I've been in Canada for a few years, so I don't know what the cost of a ticket is these days down in the States.

I watched movies at the $2.50-3.00 theaters in Provo for years, so I never paid attention to movie ticket prices. They weren't first runs, but close enough for poor students who wanted watch movies on the big screen. Can you say, "student loan?"

Currently, it's $9.50 USD in the Toronto area due to lack of theater competitors. There's basically only two and they both jack up the prices. Luckily, Tuesdays and matinees are only $6.00 USD. Yeah baby! There's a chain of theatres in Quebec that are really inexpensive. Too bad for me. :(

Welp, we don't work for the same company anymore. Floyd was our marketing director and he gave the theatre a discounted web site or sumfin. In return he got free tickets. That's what I was told anyhow. Maybe Floyd was kissing her arse (marketing director for the theater). She was kinda cute. :bah:

Even though there are quite a few big words, the Harry Potter movies are really fun flicks for the kiddies. Exciting, adventurous, scary, and dramatic! Great set of characters and great actors. The digital art and special effects really bring it all to life. Good stuff! :D

Yeah, almost the same here. Surely not a cheap family outing, anymore, especially when you factor in soda and snacks. :cry: :(

And double yeah on LOTR:Return of the King. December 17th!!! Woohoo!!!

I'm watched about half of "Finding Nemo" and it's hilarious! :lol!!: Great story, but a bit more scary for the kids than I thought. I love the Sharks and the fishbowl critters. Two thumbs up! :tup: :okay2:
