This movie is based on the real-life story of how Charles Dickens was inspired to create the characters and pen the classic, “A Christmas Carol.” I couldn’t help but think of what an awesome unit study this would make!

I’m a huge fan of Marvel movies, so when I received the opportunity to see an advanced screening of the movie in exchange for my honest review, I jumped at the chance!
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” was, overall, a great movie. It contained a great storyline, lots of action, special effects and, we get to see many of our favorite Marvel superheroes together including Ant Man, Hawkeye, Spider Man and introduced to some new characters as well. Definitely my kind of movie. Be prepared, though, it’s a long one! The movie is 2 1/2 hours long – be sure you get your provisions and go to the bathroom beforehand.
What I found most interesting about this movie is that it finally addresses the issue of the damage caused by the Avengers. Don’t get me wrong, I love to see a building demolished by super forces, but always felt that the aftermath of the “destruction-while-serving-the-greater-good” had never really been addressed. Who pays for all that damage? The government? Tony Stark? Or do they just stay demolished?
This is the very scenario that forces members of the Avengers to choose sides, causing the “Civil War.” The film brings up a lot of good questions and situations that could lead to a great discussion with your children. Throughout the movie, you find the main characters struggling between being loyal to their friends and staying true to what they believe. While there is fighting among the group, it’s clear they’d rather not be fighting each other.
If you’re trying to decide if this movie is good for family viewing, know that there is a lot (I mean a LOT) of action and fighting. But, it’s a superhero movie, you should expect that. The language was pretty clean; I noticed one swear word in the movie) and the romance angle was minimal (one kiss). The plot may be a little tricky for some as there are several different story lines running through the movie. I was a little confused for the first 30 minutes, myself. After the storylines became clear, the movie is very enjoyable.
Here’s the official description and trailer:
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016. (MARVEL) This film is rated PG-13.

A heroic action-thriller, “The Finest Hours” is the remarkable true story of the greatest small boat rescue in Coast Guard history. Presented in Digital 3D™ and IMAX® 3D, the film will transport audiences to the heart of the action, creating a fully-immersive cinematic experience on an epic scale.
On February 18, 1952, a massive nor’easter struck New England, pummeling towns along the Eastern seaboard and wreaking havoc on the ships caught in its deadly path, including the SS Pendleton, a T-2 oil tanker bound for Boston, which was literally ripped in half, trapping more than 30 sailors inside its rapidly-sinking stern.
As the senior officer on board, first assistant engineer Ray Sybert (Casey Affleck) soon realizes it is up to him to take charge of the frightened crew and inspire the men to set aside their differences and work together to ride out one of the worst storms to ever hit the East Coast.

Despite overwhelming odds, four men, led by Coast Guard Captain Bernie Webber (Chris Pine), set out in a wooden lifeboat with an ill-equipped engine and little, if any, means of navigation, facing frigid temperatures, 60-foot high waves and hurricane-force winds.
