family movies in january 2014

I’m dubbing January, 2014 as the Month of the Myth Movies for family movies. You have Hercules, Sinbad and Surly Squirrel. Yeah, I think the squirrel counts. (Actually, I totally think that Henry in Labor Day is the true hero this month.) It looks like a seriously fun-filled month of fantasy.

Rated PG-13 – for sequences of intense combat action and violence, and for some sensuality.
Synopsis: The story of how the son of Zeus gains his powers and why he becomes a legend. Older kids and teens who like action movies will really enjoy this one. In Ancient Greece 1200 B.C., a queen succumbs to the lust of Zeus to bear a son promised to overthrow the tyrannical rule of the king and restore peace to a land in hardship. But this prince, Hercules, knows nothing of his real identity or his destiny. He desires only one thing: the love of Hebe, Princess of Crete, who has been promised to his own brother. When Hercules learns of his greater purpose, he must choose: to flee with his true love or to fulfill his destiny and become the true hero of his time. The story behind one of the greatest myths is revealed in this action-packed epic – a tale of love, sacrifice and the strength of the human spirit.

So glad I watched it through so I know which movie I want to see 😉 Follows a 13-year-old Henry Wheeler, who struggles to be the man of his house and care for his reclusive mother Adele while confronting all the pangs of adolescence. On a back-to-school shopping trip, Henry and his mother encounter Frank Chambers, a man both intimidating and clearly in need of help, who convinces them to take him into their home and later is revealed to be an escaped convict. The events of this long Labor Day weekend will shape them for the rest of their lives.
