I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
When the weather is good, it is hard to consider viewing movies. But, here in Alaska we never known when we’ll have a dreary summer day that has us holed up inside.
Today is such a day. If the boys weren’t having fun with rediscovered computer games that were recently installed on one computer, then they’d most likely be asking to have a movie marathon.
One such marathon would most likely be for the Lord of the Rings trilogy of movies. (And, my instinct while beginning this post was correct as D had gone downstairs to watch the first one!)
Now, I do NOT recommend these for young children as they are rather violent. But, an older child can most likely handle the violence with many of the creatures being fought having an other worldly appearance. And, we love all the Christian symbolism you’ll find throughout the works. I just wish we had the extended versions in the house to be closer to the actual novels. Although…I think we’ll all be reading (or re-reading) the novels in the not too distant future.

As the featured columnist for the Movies and Music category, you can be looking forward to weekly posts on what we are watching or music we’ve enjoyed. Feel free to leave suggestions for me as well. While I have several movies and some music selections in mind, I’m always on the lookout for other great choices.
