While I still have no intention of seeing the upcoming flick, I noticed the name on one of the ships in a trailer yesterday -- Axiom!

I saw Indiana Jones 4 yesterday and saw the same trailer... I completely forgot about it until you said that. Good eyes (and memory for remembering to post about it...)

Of course, if the subject matter doesn't offend you, then Saving Grace is a classic in the genre. I think we've had this conversation before though . . . is it ringing a bell with you too?

I haven't seen too many foreign films but have liked the ones I saw, you know, the ones that made a fairly big splash over here like Amelie, Roberto Benigni's film, etc.

I put Persepolis on my queue and that Diving Bell/Butterfly movie...

Ok, who has seen this movie? I think I finally convinced my son that the trailer really isn't scary and that he'll love the movie.

This will be his first movie in a real theater. I can't wait to share the experience with him. \:\)

I saw Wall-e last night. I have mix feeling about it.
<no spoilers (i think...)>
As expected, the sound and visuals lived up to Pixar expectations. Now, the story, hmm I found it a bit too preachy & heavy… I don’t have kids, but I could tell most of the movie story-line would pass over their head, so if you’re going w/ small kids, be prepare to do some explanation during the movie to keep them interested.

I saw it yesterday. Loved it. It seemed to take a little while to find its groove, but once it did it was really entertaining - typical Pixar mix of wit and storytelling. I think Wall-e himself is one of the most endearing characters Pixar has created, which is really something considering his vocabulary in the movie consisted of about 4 words.

I wanna see it again. \:D

I went to see it. It was pretty good, thought it was a little slow. Of course, I had a headache when watching it, so that may have made it seem slower than normal. But yeah, I still enjoyed it, and I can't wait to have it on Blu-ray. So pretty.

Took both kids to see Wall-E today and we all enjoyed it. Steven watched with rapt attention, but he said he didn't like it a lot because it was a little bit scary. The secret to keeping a 2.5 and a 4.5 year-old settled for en entire film is to go to a late show (7:50pm). As a bonus, the fireworks were only half-over when the movie let out. \:\)

Unfortunately, we saw it at the small theater in-town. It was a smallish screen and only stereo sound. I'll have it on DVD (or better?) when it's released, for sure.

I was surprised that the theater I saw it at used a DLP projector. One of the theaters has been using a DLP projector to show stuff before the feature for a while now, but this one actually played Wall-E using a DLP projector, and it looked very very good. The sound, unfortunately, didn't match the theater, so I can't wait to be able to feel the sound effects at home.

Our theater is now using a separate projector for it's pre-show garbage. It's not DLP though as you can see the screen door effect something awful. Had it not switched to the 'real' projector when the previews hit, I was ready to walk out and demand my money back.

According to my kids, I tell the best stories. \:\) About a year ago, I got sick of reading the same books over and over and over. Now the routine is that they each get to pick one book (as long as I didn't read it yesterday), and then they get tucked in and I tell them a Daddy Story. The famous and mush looked forward to Daddy Story is always different, but sometimes the same cast of characters lasts a few bedtimes. I really look forward to it, and sometimes I think they're so good I think I should start a blog just to write them down for posterity. \:\)

That's really cool, Peter. Storytelling is a lost art nowadays.

When I was a kid I enjoyed staying the night at my best friend's house because his dad made up bedtime stories for us. One of the games we used to play with his family was a round-robin type story where one person would start, then the next person would continue, and so on. What a creative way to spend time. Some weird stories we made up, too!

Sometimes I try to do stories with morals, sometimes I aim for funny, sometimes I just try for a good story.

Last night, I made their favorite stuffed animals (a hedgehog and a pelican) the main characters in a buddy story. The hardest part was coming up with a situation where a hedgehog and a pelican would cross paths: The hedgehog lived at the top of a hill near the beach and stumbled down it and into the ocean while foraging for food. The pelican rescued him, and that's how it all started.

I can't shut down the logic center of my brain even when making stuff up. \:\)

There was some rolling later on, but down a nice grassy slope and into a bush. You should have seen the pelican try to roll down that hill, though.

One cool thing I'd like to share is that I use the same characters in my stories for Nolan that my Mom used in stories for me!

I grew up on land with pastures and woods, so the critters of my stories were/are Bucky Beavertooth, Ssst the Snake, Barney Bear ...

As a result of Barney Bear, my son knows a LOT about honey. "It comes from a beehive! Bees make it! It's sweet! Bears eat it! It's yummy, Daddy!"

Found this story via metafilter last week. Now, I knew Pixar was cool, but this is just amazingly cool.

Wall-E and the Crying Girl

In related news, Wall-E stands up to repeat viewing quite well, and makes a great date movie, too!

I need to see it in a real theater now. That story was awesome. I shake my first at Pixar for rejecting me when I applied way back in 2000.

Thanks for sharing, Adam - cool story indeed.

I'm sure my Wall-E Blu-ray will need to stand up to mucho repeat viewing. I'm telling Santa to put it on my Christmas list.

Totally off topic but love the sig Medic8r. Really enjoy R.E.M.'s new CD.

According to my kids, I tell the best stories. \:\) About a year ago, I got sick of reading the same books over and over and over. Now the routine is that they each get to pick one book (as long as I didn't read it yesterday), and then they get tucked in and I tell them a Daddy Story. The famous and mush looked forward to Daddy Story is always different, but sometimes the same cast of characters lasts a few bedtimes. I really look forward to it, and sometimes I think they're so good I think I should start a blog just to write them down for posterity. \:\)


If they're really that good, skip the blog, have them published, and make some money off of them. Posterity's already getting a planet on life support. Let's not spoil them.

Ha ha. I know how it goes. I always look for some plausibility in stuff I make up.


Make up more.

I discussed this with my wife today. I could post them on a blog under copyright, and then if people actually read them and find them to be good (my only audience/critics so far are the kids and wife), I could publish them in book format.

I would love to see your imagination at work in story format. Let's see this blog happen!

I just registered a free blog. I will reveal it once I've personalized it and added some content. \:\)
