Our day in movies.
We haven't actually seen The Hangover, but I'm guessing t.rex's gut will soon overshadow Seth Rogan's. If only t.rex grows up to talk just like a Muppet, I'll be happy. The bajillion dollars would be nice, too.
We saw Avatar in 3D in the theater.
Well, we saw most of it. Thank goodness for Google, or we'd have no idea what happened in the last 15 minutes.
Oh, wait. We own Pocahontas, and we've seen Dances with Wolves, so I guess we'd be okay. That's right-- I thought the story was derivative. You wanna fight about it? But I loved the world and would totally buy a time share there. Especially near those helicopter lizards.
We bought a VHS of Beauty and the Beast at a consignment sale, and the Biscuit has spent her weekend in her Belle dress, dancing with her Beast. We have DVDs under a year old that are already scratched and skippy, but that VHS from 1992 is still soldiering along. Talk about value!
"Beast is a kinda lion-bear-guy," she said.
"Is that anything like a man-bear-pig?" I asked.
"A man-bear-pig. It's very real. I'm totally cereal."
"Mommy, you are very weird."
Please tell me you guys remember that episode of South Park. Please.
Okay, so I may have doctored that one a little bit. But you get the point.
We didn't actually get to see any movies, although I am aching to see The Wolfman and hopping up and down on one leg to see Alice in Wonderland in 3D.
Before kids, we saw almost every movie that comes out. With kids, we're lucky if we get one a month. Movies were our main hobby, and Netflix just can't compare.
If you don't have kids and you're thinking about having some, for the love of all that's holy, go have a really nice restaurant meal and see a movie every flippin' weekend.
Do it for me. Do it for you. Do it because you have no idea how the little monsters take over your life. Do it because most of today's movies are so, so much better on the big screen.
Just watch out for the ones with lots of explosions when you're hugely pregnant, because it's really weird when your unborn child does jumping jacks on your bladder.
