Monsters VS. Aliens

Went to see Monsters VS. Aliens yesterday and I loved it. I laughed out loud in several places and the kids in the audience seemed to really enjoy it. Ya gotta see it in 3-D....I think it would be worth traveling a little ways to a theatre that offers it that way if your local theatre doesn't have the technology.
It is rated PG and there are lots of loud action/scary scenes which may upset very young children ( I always say, you are the best judge of your child and you know what may upset them, this is just my opinion). But I think it's basically okay for the average five year old and up.
If you know me, you know that I really despise so-called family movies that include inappropriate language and any kind of adult/sexy stuff (oh, they are out there, believe me.) This movie had nothing like that. It was very well done: great animation, funny script and excellent voice characterizations by people like Reese Witherspoon and Hugh Laurie (Dr. House!)It gets an A+ from me!
Let me know if you like it!

We saw that yesterday too. I went along grudgingly w/my son bec. my daughter was seeing a movie with her friends and we needed something to do for that block of time. But it was really cute! My son (11) really enjoyed it & I thought it was cute. I loved the part where the president first goes up to the alien. Pretty good all in all.

Hi Judy!
Here are your "interview questions." You answer them and post the answers on your blog.

1. What is your musical training/background? Are you self-trained/did you have formal musical training?

2. Why children's music? What draws you to compose and perform music specifically for children?

3. What were some of your musical favorites as a child and what were some favorites you played for your own children?

4. What countries have you traveled to in the world and what were your favorites?

5. What are 10 things you still want to do in this life?

6. What are 5 words friends would use to describe you?

I know I was only supposed to ask 5 but I threw in a bonus question. Hope it's fun!
