Pajamagram for Valentine's Day (soft pink fuzzy ones!) and I've not taken them off much since then. I want to wear them until the Spring thaw, which is coming right? I'm beginning to wonder. This weather is good for nothing but curling up with a good book or five and a cup of tea with honey. Or maybe a movie, and I happen to be giving away several good ones.
Fantastic Mr. Fox is pretty fantastic. The boys (ages 3 and 7) loved it. I thought it was quirky and charming. The characters have a flat, clipped speech that is odd (George Clooney is great at it) but it suits the whole odd story. It's like an adult movie that kids happen to also enjoy, instead of the other way around. It is rated PG and one of the farmers smokes, which I could live without but which is probably in the book. But it is funny and different and unpredictable. I have THREE to give away! I also have a copy of Amelia, based on the story of Amelia Earhart. I knew how the story would end, but I didn't know a lot of the details of her life or how she disappeared, so I found it interesting. The movie is gorgeous in terms of the styling, and Swank does an excellent job. Mr. P and I watched it and thought it was well done.
Amelia is rated PG. To win a DVD just leave a comment. I'd love to know what you think of these movies if you've seen them. Three commenters will be chosen at random. Two will win a copy of Fantastic Mr. Fox, and the third will win both Amelia and Fantastic Mr. Fox. (To get you through the next cold weekend!) And here's an extra - activity pages for the kiddies for Fantastic Mr. Fox. (If you have trouble saving these to your computer let me know and I'll email them to you.)
Contest will end on Tuesday, March 9th at midnight. Thanks to the lovely people at Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment for sending me review copies and providing home entertainment for 3 lucky readers.
Edited to add: I have a post up at Blissfully Domestic about communication and sharing and not wanting to do the ugly cry in front of your husband. Check it out along with the other awesomeness over there!
