little kid media rocks!

Generally, I don't really like going to the movies. There's a lot out there that I'm not interested in. I find myself enjoying books and movies geared towards a younger audience. I tried reading Love in the time of Cholera because we got it from the library and some people have recommended it, but I hated it and after forcing myself to get half way, I realized I was wasting my time.
I now recommend to you 3 movies that aren't so "mature"; I have watched each one twice and I count none of that time as wasted. So here it goes, 3 movies that you should watch for a good time!

Son of Rambow - Totally liked it. Especially how Will says "Lee Carter". Watch it and you'll see.

Little Manhattan - A 10 year old in love, but it resonates with this 31 year old.

Millions - Good movie, Strange at parts but still refreshingly different. (the band Muse in soundtrack!)

I didn't read "Love in the Time of Cholera" but when it was being talked about a lot a few months ago, I made up a song about it. I'll sing it for you, but these are the lyrics:

"We had love... but we also had cholera
We had love... but we also had dysentery"
La la la la
We hand LOVE in the Time of Cholera"

It is a silly song.

We have Millions. It's a cool show.

John H. likes Son of Rambow too. Gotta check that one out.

We got Little Manhattan through Netflix. I had low expectations, but was very pleasantly surprised.
