My children are just wonderful! Today is my birthday and as a early treat yesterday my daughter and her boyfriend took me to the movies. They treated me to the new Christopher Robin movie. Disney’s new spin off from the classic Winnie The Pooh tale.
Ecstatic was I to be going to the movie with my mvp’s in life. They even treated me to the nice theater. We had our over-sized reclining chairs and our food delivered to our seats. The theater was not very full maybe ten people at most. We had picked perfect seats perfectly positioned in the center of the screen.
The previews had all three of us ohhing and awwing. Disney movies are just so incredible these days. Nothing like the vhs I played as a child. Watching all the remakes be done is really a neat experience.
Christopher Robin is the story of him no longer as a child but all grown up. It’s the classic tale of forgetting your child hood. Letting it fade as adult life creeps in. So easy for us adults to get wrapped on careers and money and lose sight of the things we held dear as a child.
Christopher Robin also a father in the movie who lost his way to connect to his daughter. I am sure parents all over the world can easily relate to the movie. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing his role as a father.
Piglet, Eeyore, Roo, Kanga, and the rest of the crew all make an appearance in the movie. I wanted the characters to be more adorable then they were. They weren’t the soft cuddly soft animals I remembered. Of course I’m not sure what I expected as this was to take place thirty or so years later. Stuff animals we surely wear as these had in thirty years.
All and all I would rate the movie a solid 8 from me. My daughter I am sure would have given it a 10! She at 14 years old really enjoyed the tale. She was exclaiming of it all the way home. I recommend it as a family night out!
