Hallmark movies are always good family fare. I still watch the reruns.

No wonder kids are totally screwed up nowadays. We as parents wonder and blame media. How about blame ourselves for allowing this to happen. The movie went right back to where it came from this morning. Scary. Both, the movie and what we have become.
I'm sorry to hear that. Charlie, at least about the movie. I've made it a point over the years to read an assortment of juvenile literature to see what's available for our youth. I've read almost all of the Harry Potter books and found them to be delightful and full of creative imagination.

Having said that, I have absolutely no clue about any of the movies and how they portray the stories in the books.

Some years ago I read The Invention of Hugo Cabret, which is another piece of juvenile literature. It's quite an adventure but not nearly as complex as any Harry Potter enjoyed. The movie about Hugo is in 3D and is incredibly rich in story and vision. I can only imagine how captivating any of the Harry Potter stories would be in 3D.

Okay, to each his own, but I still found the Harry Potter tales to be very, very enjoyable...and very appropriate for children of the right age.

i understand how you feel, charlie. but so long as you explain that it's fantasy just like cartoons or scary movies about monsters, it's just mind candy. it'll help your kids expand their creative minds so long as they have your guidance as to the real world.

<applause> Thanks, Katie.

As an "adult" who enjoys Harry Potter and finds merit in the stories for kids of the right age.

Yes, MSM! Sorry you are missing it. It is really good, wait for it to come around again.

Shrek, finally made his New Year's Resolution..."No more hallmark movies."

We watched the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, "A Smile as Big as the Moon" as well. Great movie, and based on a real class. The "problem" with Hallmark HoF movies is that you not only cry during the movie, but you cry at half the commercials too!
