I love movies and have been waiting since the day my first child was born to begin enjoying them with my kids. Now that my oldest is 5, I’ve started showing them movies that I love. I found Drew McWeeny’s writing on HitFix.com a couple of years back and have become enamored with his Film Nerd 2.0 columns. Drew watches his favorite movies with his kids and documents their reactions, thoughts, and experiences. Since his two boys are the same age as my two oldest, his columns have become a blueprint for exposing my kids to a medium that I love. Drew’s writing is inspiring for a parent like me and I look forward to my kids growing up with the same appreciate of the art form as his.
I highly recommend the series of columns he did on Star Wars. Its a fantastic place to start on these fabulous columns!
