Liam’s World: On Contemporary Cinema

Some of you may recall Liam’s twitter account, “Liam’s World.” And while it’s been dormant for a while, we’re bringing it back here on ediTORIal! Each week, I’ll be sharing Liam’s greatest gems. Enjoy!

Liam, going for a Harry Potter chic look, posed for me and said, “You have to say, “Damn… You look handsome!’”

Tonight, Liam also said, “I want to see Crazy, Stupid, Love.” I said, “It’s an adult movie,” and he responded, “No, Mom. It’s for kids. What happens is the kids say, “I love you,’ then they go crazy, and that’s just stupid.”

Who knows, maybe one day Liam will make his version of Crazy, Stupid, Love! Until then, sorry Monkey, you’re not old enough to see it yet!

What are your kids saying about movies these days?

    My daughter is 2.5 and she loves the original Pippi Longstocking movies from the 70′s. I have them on DVD because they were my favorite when I was a kid. Anytime she does something big she sings the pippi longstocking song and tells me she is the strongest just like Pippi, every morning when I do her hair she tells me she wants Pippi’s in her hair (braids) and when she jumps on my bed she says she is just being Pippi.

    My 3.5 year old son loves “Annie” – we stumbled upon it one afternoon and he was mesmerized. Weird – but fun (as I love to sing along to the songs… tee hee).

    My 3 1/2 year old son Logen is obsessed with Sleeping Beauty right now. He loves to sing the songs and dance around and act out the entire movie.

    I have to share this gem, I know you posted this in August, but my 4 year old niece is incredibly funny. My sister was getting mad at her and told her if she isn’t a good girl Santa won’t visit her.

    A few days later my sister put my niece in time out. My niece immediately told her…”you’re a mean mommy and Santa isn’t bringing you nothing”. I think I almost peed myself laughing at the entire situation… from the mouths of babes…

    My fourteen year old is in love with Disney movies again! It is very cute to see her enjoying them still. Her fav characters are Belle and Jasmine (mine is Cinderella!).

    I cant seem to get my youngest son sway from all the violence in cartoons and video games. However, we have to do it. He has a hard time with the difference between it all and has had nightmares. So we went retro or old school or whatever you want to call it. HE watches the smurfs mostly and some of the Disney movies before they had so much idk maturity in them. Truthfully he has watched Harry Potter and Twilight and loves them. I just have to be careful with what he watches. With what went on in a 3rd grade classroom recently, i think we have to be extremely careful with what they watch.
