Marquee Mama Reviews Steven Spielberg’s LINCOLN (Film Review)

This is a first for me.  You’d normally come here to read about kid movies, family-friendly films – pretty much nothing with a rating stronger than PG (which includes films like Wreck-It Ralph and The Lorax).  But I stepped out recently with my husband for date night to see the much-anticipated Lincoln.  It was a good […]

MARQUEE MAMA Reviews The Odd Life of Timothy Green (A Family Movie for the Grown-Ups)

The Odd Life of Timothy Green, Disney’s got itself a sweet little family film here.  It’s just not exactly one for the kids.  Sure you’ll see plenty of kids in the movie, a dash of amusing, child-friendly scenes (an afternoon soccer game fiasco), and a healthy dose of fantasy sure to entertain any kids you […]

Marquee Mama’s TOP 10 Mother’s Day Movies!

What else would you want from Marquee Mama this Mother’s Day than a Top 10 list of the best the marquee has to offer to us moms?  It was a challenge for me to limit my list to 10, but for the sake of round numbers, and my inability to imagine any mom having the […]


  I’ll admit up front that I am not the target demographic for this kind of movie.  I’ve never been a comic book person, much less a Marvel insider.  And while I don’t think you need to be a Marvel diehard to enjoy this movie, it’ll help.
