Vacation was great. Blah blah blah. The only thing I really took with me was that I am becoming disturbingly jealous of those who do not work. Not for the work thing, but for the sleep. I slept nine plus hours almost every day for close to three weeks. I don’t even need the lack of a job thing, I just want that sweet precious sleep back. Also, I really have nothing to write, so I will review the movies that I have seen in the past month poorly and incompletely.
I had been looking forward to this and when tg called up and asked if The Max and I wanted to go on opening night, I was all over that. It was good. I have a hard time judging ‘kids’ movies. My difficulty comes from the fact that 95% of kids movies are bad. I am not referring to 95% of the ones that go to the theater, but instead the ones that go straight to DVD, ones only shown on TV as well as theater releases. But this was in that top 5%. The only problem I had was the humans. They were so dang cartoony. Someone had said that all Pixar movies do that and I guess I never thought about it before, but it is true. Humans in Pixar movies are cartoony. However, in Wall-E there were actual humans along with the silly putty versions of humans. It seemed wrong.
I watched this last night. I watched the first half hour and it was quite good. I need to see it before I am allowed to join some friends who are more hard core Batman fans when Dark Knight comes out. But then, after that first entertaining half hour I fell sound asleep. Whoops.
Return of Optimus Prime
This is not a movie, really. And I am not going to review it. It’s just funny so press the sideways triangle already.
