Never watch a mediocre movie again

I love family movie night. In our family, it’s me, the Mister, and my little girl who will be three in July. A toddler makes a family night out a little more challenging… She wants to climb over the table and dump the salt shaker onto the heads of the customers at the next table if we go to a restaurant. She has a hard time staying quiet or in one place in a big movie theater. She loves to dance – but I don’t think a nightclub is quite our style, lol. So, making special movie nights at home is one of our regular weekend rituals!

Everyone loves a family movie night

We usually put together a theme for our movie nights, to make it a little bit more fun. You could do pirate pizza and punch like we did last summer, or a princess theme night with your little one’s favorite films and pretty cupcakes. You could get really creative and make cookies in the shape of favorite movie characters, or just pair your dinner choice to the movies country or location. Once you start thinking about it a little, you’ll come up with tons of ideas to make your night more fun!

Popcorn and the Perfect Film Pick

No matter which movie theme you decide to go with – a night of 80’s retro flicks, a trio of slapstick comedies, or some action and intrigue after the kids go to bed – you want to make sure you’re picking some awesome movies that you’ll enjoy, right? I mean, it’s great to re-watch old favorites sometimes, but usually we’re in the mood to find a NEW favorite. One way to make sure you never have to sit through a mediocre movie again is to use the new ‘Find Your Critic’ tool on Rotten Tomatoes. It rocks – Here’s how it works:

  • Log in really quick to get started.
  • It’ll run you through 12 movies – simply click 1-5 stars to rate it, click not interested, or mark that you haven’t seen it. It took me less than a minute to complete, seriously.
  • Then, it will compare your ratings with critics ratings, to see who has taste similar to yours. When you want to check out new movie reviews, you’ll have a great set of people to turn to! I mean, if someone totally hates romantic comedies, then you probably aren’t going to agree with their reviews on the newest rom-com, you know? And every time you use the tool to rate movies you watch, it’ll get even more accurate!

So, now you know how to plan a perfect family movie night, have a seriously cool tool to pick the best films to watch, and of course – make sure to pick up some of the all-time movie night all-star – Pop Secret popcorn!
