A Good Movie

Our Netflix account is on hold due to family budget cuts {sigh}. But one of the first movies I want to rent when we come off hold is the 1982 version of the The Scarlet Pimpernel with Anthony Andrews and Jane Seymour.

Our family had watched it about 6 years ago when we were doing a unit study on the French Revolution. We had also watched a black and white movie version of Dickens Tale of Two Cities a few months earlier.

 The children enjoyed The Scarlet Pimpernel very much. The Tale of Two Cities – my oldest is still upset about. It was a little to real. A little two heart wrentching. Not a happy ending for everyone.

Both were great movies though.

A few weeks ago we rented two movies from the Redbox at the local Savemart. This is not a deal compared to Netflix, but we were having a outdoor movie night with the neigbor kids and our dvd’s have become a bit boring.

I forgot to buy popcorn, but we did have lots of candy and drinks. Our simple little movie night was a big hit.
