Monsters University, Part 1

I can only write about the first half of Monsters University, ’cause that’s all I saw. Here’s why: took all three kids to see a movie for the first time. My (almost) four year old daughter did great for the first half – not so much during the second half. And why do kids’ movies have thirty minutes of previews anyway? Her popcorn was gone by the time the movie started. And that was bad.

From what I saw of Monsters it was great. Everything you would want to see Mike and Sully doing in college. The fact that Disney managed to make a G rated movie about college may have been the best part. I didn’t see much after the point in the story where Mike and Sully and their band of misfits tried to break into the power plant. My daughter and I ran up and down the halls of the theater while my sister and boys watched all the cool looking monsters do funny and amazing things – becoming lifelong best friends in the process. At least that’s how I imagine it ended.

There’s hope! It’s called Blu-ray. And if Monsters University is like every other Pixar disk in my house, it will play over and over again for days and days to the point where I can recite the dialogue – backwards – in my sleep. Can’t wait!

Pacific Rim was a blast!

I took my ten year old son and his friend to see “Pacific Rim”. Great fun for a Godzillas vs. Robots movie. The CGI was outstanding. The boys sat slack-jawed still during the entire show. It may have actually changed their lives. I laughed at the stiff dialog and out of place characters, but HEY, it was ten story human piloted robots taking out giant alien monsters with lasers and metal chewing acid. I’m still not sure why Ron Perelman’s character got eaten by a newborn alien monster, so I think I might just need to go see it again.
