2011 Family Movie Nights

As I did for movies we saw at the movies and for books I’ve read, I’m moving my descriptions of what we’ve watched on “Family Movie Nights” from one post for each movie we watched, to one per year, listing each of the movies. So here we go, for 2011. Yeah, I’m a bit behind. Whatever.

  • 2011-01-02: Mama Mia! (2008) – I saw this on Broadway too. The movie wasn’t as good as Broadway, but it was OK. Also the first thing we ever watched on Blu-Ray. Fun Abba songs. Pretty Greek scenery. Pretty forgettable plot. Fine for a couple hours once.
  • 2011-01-16: Emma (1996) – Let no lasting impression on me at all. I guess it was OK.
  • 2011-01-31: Heathers (1988) – Apparently an 80’s classic. Blah blah blah. I hated it. I couldn’t relate to or understand the motivations of any of the characters. At all.
  • 2011-05-15: Doctor Who: The Space Museum (1965) – One of the old 1st Doctor stories. As with all of these old stories, it is pretty slow by modern standards. But as 1st Doctor episodes go, I actually kind of liked it.

And that was the last real “family movie night” we ever had using the old way we did that. We’ve seen a few things together since then, just not quite that way. Starting whenever I do this for 2012, I’ll just list all movies I’ve seen, regardless of the venue or who it was seen with.

Oh, for completeness, in 2011 I also “kinda saw” the following movies because Alex watched them so much I eventually saw the whole things, although not necessarily in a linear straight through the movie sort of way:

  • Hero of the Rails (2009)
  • The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland (1999)
  • Mater’s Tall Tales (2008-2012)
  • Ratatouille (2007)
