Scary Movie

I bought two movies about a week ago because they were pretty cheap. One was Muppets in Space (because our previous copy snapped in half) and the other was Labyrinth. I had never seen Labyrinth but I had heard from several people that it was good. For $5 I figured it was worth a shot.

Tonight I decided that we would watch it as a family. I put the movie in and about 10 minutes in a set of goblin Muppets were enough to have kids scared to the point of tears. We shut it off and then watched some nature programming on PBS about South African penguins. The kids seemed to really enjoy the show even though it had some macabre scenes of the aftermath of a oil tanker spill and the confrontations with predatory animals. I found the irony to be a little much.
