Summer Fun: Our Movie List Update

We watch a lot of movies, especially for people who pretty much never go to the theater (maybe once a year, maybe.  This year it was Minions.)  This has been the summer of re-watching all the Marvel movies.  Yes, I know, violent.  But in that fantasy/sci-fi kind of way.

Tonight, we watched Back to the Future.  It aged pretty well in 30 years.  Yep, we're now the future--except that's the second movie--and no, we don't have hoverboards yet.  The first one goes back to 1955.  The kids enjoyed it enough.  Sis was particularly surprised that the young female lead now plays the mom on "Switched at Birth."  And neither one of them could comprehend the inside joke about Huey Lewis and the News. (They also didn't realize there were cars in the 1950s.  Sheesh.)

I was looking at my old list (trying to find a movie for Labor Day weekend) and realized we've seen many of the ones on our original list a few years ago.

Still a lot of good ones to see.  And we'll have to watch the movie Matilda before we go see the Broadway musical in November.
