Winnie the Pooh

1. Any other brave souls taking their kid to see it? I rented the original DVD and I can hear Noelle downstairs laughing at it. I remember my first experiences going to the movies as a young child and I think she's going to love it!

2. Do you remember the first movie(s) you saw in the theater? I'm pretty sure the first one i saw was Songs of the South.

Nah, I didn't take him to Cars and won't to this either. I'm just afraid his short attention span and knack for talking thru whatever little portion of a movie he'll watch will cause us to leave shortly after the movie starts!

The furthest back I can remember as far as movies is going to see A Christmas Story in the theaters lol!

I just took Rache to see his first movie on Tuesday! Unfortunately, I chose poorly and we went to see Cars 2. It was so, so violent. They said "kill" about 100 times, and now Rache keeps saying kill, too. Ugh. And it was too long. Rache started asking to go home after an hour, and then kept saying, "When's this gonna be over?" I don't recommend it if you were considering going. We should have waited to Winnie the Pooh!

I don't remember my first movie....I'm told it was one of the Star Wars movies. I think the second one? I do remember seeing the one with the ewoks. I was pretty excited about the cute little bears who fight evil, apparently!

Yes!!!! Abs is going to my friends house and Jax and I are going. DH gave me these huge eyes that said are you freaking crazy? And I just looked at him and stated that Jax only misbehaves in public with him and that's because he allows it.

The first movie I saw in a theater was Bambi. My sister and my BIL (was her bf at the time, the were seniors in HS) took me to see it. I was 5, the summer before I started kindergarten.

This is what we should have done! I think DH and I learned a big lesson for sure. We have to really check into the movies we show Rache. We so seldom ever go (I think the last movie I went to was 6+ years ago! DH hates movies...), it didn't even occur to me you could look at reviews. I know...how clueless am I? We do let him watch DVDs a good bit, so I'm going to be more pro-active in the future!

so sad about Cars 2, you would think this day in age they'd make kids movies for kids, I love the mild adult humour in most kids movies these days but violence shouldn't even be allowed.

Nope, no Winnie the Pooh here, Aidan has the attention span of a flea, and wouldn't sit still for more than 5 mins, not doin' it LOL

oh and my first movie was Jungle Book, I don't really remember it though, my mom said she cried through it because my dad and her had been fighting that day lol, (they hardly ever fought)

This is what I don't get about Cars, it's rated G. And here's the Disney written description found in most places:

Star racecar Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and the incomparable tow truck Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) take their friendship to exciting new places in Cars 2 when they head overseas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix to determine the world's fastest car. But the road to the championship is filled with plenty of potholes, detours and hilarious surprises when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage. Mater finds himself torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret mission orchestrated by master British super spy Finn McMissile (Michael Caine) and the stunning spy-in-training Holley Shiftwell (Emily Mortimer). -- (C) Disney

So with all of that, G rating and reading the description, I would NEVER guess there would be any form of violence or references to violence. That said, I saw some statistic the other day I can't remember exactly, but basically every single animated children's movie made since the 60's has at least 1 act of violence in it. I'm thinking violence would probably include acts of aggression, etc. So Pooh movie goers, let us know if there's any bit of Pooh kicking someone's arse!

I didn't think cars was that bad....Belle was fine, I really doubt she noticed.

I don't think we'll do pooh. There just isn't enough action to it. I dont know if shed get the story...besides I need the money for harry potter:)

Miles did great when I took him to see Tangled - I think the popcorn helped.

I'd planned on taking him to Cars 2, but since I've heard so much bad stuff about it, I decided not to. Had to cross it off our summer fun list (note to self, just put "go to movies" next time).

I'm afraid Pooh will be a little slow. A friend today told me that Mr. Poppers Penguins was good for all ages.

The first movie I remember seeing in the theatre was The Fox and The Hound. I was probably our LO's age I'd guess (I checked, it came out in 81 but I remember going to the cheap theatre so it was probably out for awhile before I saw it - so yeah, between 3 and 4 I'd say).

I'm planning on taking Alicia next week, but I'll probably do the stars and strollers thing and take her during the day when its all families with small kids. We have all the winnie the pooh movies and she loves them. Probably helps that the nursery was decorated with winnie the pooh and she has tons of books and toys too (mommy loves pooh!). The first movie I saw in theaters was the aristocats.

Apparently I live under a rock because I hadn't heard the stuff about Cars 2. DH took Alanis to see it, mostly because we'd heard about the short Toy Story clip at the beginning. They went for a matinee while I stayed home and worked, so I missed her first movie. She was soooooooo excited and she did fine. But she did talk a few times but no one cared since everyone was there with kids. Thankfully she has no recollection of violence from the movie. She mostly recounts some of the storyline for us, but really cared much more about the little Toy Story clip.

So this Pooh thing is really only showing tomorrow? DH wants to take her as soon as he gets home. But we also have tickets to HP at night, so not sure he will really go for two movies in a day. Especially since we're seeing HP in 3D and are already anticipating the headache it will cause us hahaah.

I am pretty sure we will be going! I am pumped it is only an hour, I think that will help with the antsy feeling that I am sure he will get Smile

I LOVE Winnie the Pooh - always have. I won't be taking C just because he doesn't really know the characters (sad I know) and after our Cars 2 movie adventure we'll be waiting about an other 4-6 months before we attempt that again. He did ok but I think he'll be more ready then.

Though I want to see it I'll wait for it to come out on DVD and we'll watch it for a family movie night some night.

We took the kids to see the French nature documentary Oceans that was distributed in the US by Disneynature. It was incredible. The boys did amazing; Anna was still nursing then so I nursed her to sleep about two thirds of the way through.

Otherwise, we save our money and watch movies at home. The kids have seen a LOT of movies - everything from Winnie the Pooh (original) to the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy. Anna didn't sit through all of Lord of the Rings - she kept saying, "There's Mommy's favourite elf!" every time Orlando Bloom appeared on the screen, but she would lose interest during the battle scenes. I would put Angelina Ballerina on DVD for her in the other room to keep us all happy, lol.

All this to say, the movie theater is a real treat (read: expensive) that we will have to save for a very special film.

I didn't hear that. Where I live it's showing everyday after Friday.

Hilda, I am just as confused as you and thought I was imagining things. Back a few weeks ago, the very first ad I saw for it, said "One day only, July 15th". I've never seen that same ad again, and when I checked our theater times, it's playing every day after Friday.

Hmm, didn't know it was coming out. Cadence kind of likes Pooh. She's never been to the theater and we probably won't go now either. No cash, no babysitters... Smile

As to the violence thing...is it weird that I don't like the idea of Cars 2 having "kill! kill! kill!" all the way through, but I LOVE Tom and Jerry, and Cadence and I laugh all the way through every episode as they torture each other? hehe

Oh yeah, we're going. We've been talking about it all summer...Tyler's really excited. He loves Winnie the Pooh - he only has one DVD of Tigger and Pooh (the one with Darby - I can't remember what it's called). He's been watching the previews for this new movie and he asks "who's that BOY?? Where's Darby??" :rolleyes:

I'm excited to take him. I took him to see Rio for his first movie and he did really, really well. Sat still as a stone. I'm hoping this is the same.

The first movie I remember seeing in the theater Fivel Smile

totally agree!

It's a bummer that there is so much violence and even anger/rudeness in cartoons and kids movies these days. Sad

I didn't even know Pooh was coming to the theater. Cyrus hasn't been to a movie theather yet. His attention span for long movies isn't quite there yet. We have a few Pooh DVDs, Cyrus will watch (and like) for a little while. Maybe if it is only an hour, this could be a good candidate for a frst movie theater experience. We'll see. Look forward to hearing your reviews.

And I can't remember for the life of me the first movie I saw in theater.

We will probably wait to see it on video. But Delaney has been to the theater to see Tangled and DH took her to see a 25 cent second run movie sponsored by the police dept. I can't remember which one. She did great at both. She loves movies but I'm too cheap to take her often.

The first movie I went to was the original Star Wars. I was 3 and I do have vague memories. But I fell asleep within the first 30 minutes.

Forgot to add my first movie. I remember being taken to a university amphitheater (we lived on campus when we first immigrated to Canada) to see Darby O'Gill and the Little People (Sean Connery's first movie from back in 1959 - he had jet black hair). It was sooo scary! I was four years old (this was 1971) and I had nightmares for a while after that - certainly remember the movie, though.

I too Harper to see Pooh today and she loved it!! It's only a little over an hour and popcorn for sure helped. And, seriously, the movie is funny!! Biggrin

My first movie was Bambi...not sure I'm ready to show that one to Harper! Sad

We just took Karina this morning! She was VERY well behaved and sat there quietly. She said she enjoyed it. My DH napped a little.

The earliest memory I have of going to the movies is when my grandma took us to see E.T when it first came out.......it was right before she got sick with cancer and one of the last times she was able to take us out ......

I dont think that 3 is the age where kids can sit thru a movie.....wyatt is 6 and sometimes can barely sit thru the 'boring' parts of the movies.

I don't think we will go see Winnie the Pooh. I'll wait for it to come out on dvd.
I didn't think Cars 2 had alot of violence, I thought it was a bit boring though.
We took Jayden to see Rio a couple months back, and he really enjoyed that.

I have no idea what my first movie was. I bet if I ask my mom she won't be able to remember either.
