Before Movie Mom reviewed the new Disney movie, 'Moana' - she dropped a Washington D.C. bomb on us!

She was heading to the Capital to watch her dad, Newt Minow, receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom! Why?

Newt Minow is an attorney with a long and distinguished career in public life. After serving in the U.S. Army during World War II, Minow served as a Supreme Court clerk and counsel to the Governor of Illinois. In 1961, President Kennedy selected Minow, then 34, to serve as Chairman of the Federal Communications Committee (FCC), where he helped shape the future of American television and was a vigorous advocate for broadcasting that promoted the public interest. In the five decades since leaving the FCC, Minow has maintained a prominent private law practice while devoting himself to numerous public and charitable causes.

Uh...okay, hard to follow that - but how is that new Disney movie, 'Moana'?

 

It's great. Sure, it's not as great as getting the Medal of Freedom, but not too shabby. Movie Mom says, PLEASE stay to the very, very, tippy toe end of this movie for an extra scene that is worth it!

Then there is the new Brad Pitt movie, 'Allied'. She loves Brad Pitt and she loves  Marion Cotillard, but she did not enjoy the ending and gives a luke warm endorsement because of it.

'Bad Santa 2'...well, she was biased because she didn't like the first one - so she said, that that review with 'a grain of salt.'

Stay home and watch two amazing movies out on DVD: 'Kubo and the Two Strings' - best animated film of the year and 'Hell or High Water' a movie that will keep you guessing all the way to the end.
