Christopher Robin

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!

Review Of Incredibles 2

Last night just after dinner Aaden gives me the kind reminder that I have promised him ( probably 5 months prior when a trailer came on the tv that too long ago for me to remember at all! ) to take him to see the Incredibles 2 movie. It was his birthday just 12 days later and he wanted to see it on opening day for his bday. The issue with this is that the 15th is his older brother’s bday. I hadn’t taken any of that in account at the time I had said, “yes.” I mean after all who even remembers saying yes? So, now I have a bday for a 14 year old to plan and pull off and a movie date with a soon to be 8 year old. No biggie. I picked the earliest time they had. I chose that for two reason’s. Firstly because it was half the cost if you went to the first showing. $2.50 for a movie! With that price whoever woke up and wanted to go could do so. I was thinking secondly that if I went that early on a Friday the place would be a ghost town. Boy was I dead wrong in that logic! Everyone had the exact same idea I had clearly as we purchased the very last 5 seats together! In row e. So row E is not where I would choose I would absolutely be a row A kind of girl. Row E is just three rows from the very front of the screen. The seats are still the older sit straight up kind of seats. Not the reclining kind they have at the theater Marc always splurges for. I remembered my sweater. I was instantly thankful I had and used it for my blanket. The kids all got cotton candy and one large popcorn. The popcorn was super stale. The cotton candy very fresh. Aj was lite up like a Christmas tree in excitement for the movie. Before the movie begins there is a cute skit of why number 2 took so darn long to come out. I thought that was an adorable touch. Also is a movie of a mother and son. It was of a son growing up and leaving to marry. It too was so cute. Incredibles 2 was action packed. The baby gets his powers! The cutest part of the movie is the cute baby and his powers. I could so relate with cookies taming the beast! I couldn’t help but keep cuddling to the two kids on the sides of me. Watching them smile and eat their popcorn. I thoroughly enjoyed the laughter throughout the theater and would recommend it for a family movie night to anyone! My children that went with were 16,14,13,7 and were all so entertained!
