Catch Epic with Movies On Demand {Giveaway}

This post is written by the Experimental Mommy.  While a sample was received to facilitate this review, all opinions remain 100% mine.

With the beginning of school, my hubby (who is a high school teacher) has been insanely busy.  So, my girls and I decided to have a “Girl’s Night” this weekend which included and always anticipated Movie Night.  We set up some sleeping bags, popped some popcorn and got the fruit punch ready to go.

Now, the all important next step:  which Movie should we watch?  Fortunately, Movies On Demand was to the rescue.  In August, some of the featured titles include: Great Gatsby, Sapphire and Big Wedding.  But seeing as this was a kiddie movie night, we selected Epic.

To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much.  I had heard of the movie, but I wasn’t head over heels excited about watching it.  However, I was pleasantly surprised.  For a movie to keep the attention of both my daughters as well as myself for the entire hour and forty two minutes, it must be good.

I want you all to go rent it, so I won’t give away the storyline.  But, I will say that one of the reasons I am so happy that I watched this movie with my daughters is that the main character in this fairytale is female and did NOT need to be rescued.  She was brave.  She was strong.  She made decisions.  She solved problems.  Her name is Mary Katherine.

My daughters are now trying to convince Dad to watch the movie with them next.  But, we may check out what else Movies on Demand has to offer.  Even though it is still technically Summer, my girls are back in school.  But, we plan to carry on the fun during the weekends with fun family activities like sharing a movie night with Movies on Demand.

Do you want to have a family movie night, too?  One reader will win a $25 VISA Gift Card to help plan your perfect party!  Enter below:
