Movie Mom Says January May Not Be That Bad Afterall… [VIDEO]


Usually January is the absolute worst for movies…but Movie Mom says this time around – there are some good ones, including this weekend. 

Let’s start with the gorgeous ‘A Monster Calls‘. Movie Mom was pretty firm with the age group, middle school and older. It deals with some dark subjects and deep grief that may be too sad for the little ones. But she really loved it and thought it was great.

It stars Liam Neeson as the voice of a monster that comes to help a boy who has a bully after him and lost his mom to terminal cancer. It’s based on the best selling book.

Then Liam Neeson is in the other big release this weekend, ‘Silence‘ – a Martin Scorsese movie. That means two things: 1) It’s almost 3 hours long and 2) It’s super violent.

It’s set in the seventeenth century, where two Jesuit priests face violence and persecution when they travel to Japan to locate their mentor and propagate Catholicism. It didn’t always go well.

Then on DVD this week another couple of good ones, ‘Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life‘ (self explanatory) and ‘Denial‘. Movie Mom says the middle school movie is so well done and not cheesy at all. ‘Denial’ is about acclaimed writer and historian Deborah E. Lipstadt must battle for historical truth to prove the Holocaust actually occurred when David Irving, a renowned denier, sues her for libel.
