My mom was looking for something fun to do with the kids so Tuesday I suggested we go to a movie. I don't know what I was thinking. The last time we took Cheetah to a movie she spent the entire time running around the back of the theater. The time before that I stood in the hall with her for 45 minutes. Luckily this time there were three adults there. Cheetah spent the first half of the movie sitting next to my mom and Rhys. The second half she was sitting next to me. We were actually sitting on the row behind my mom because when we got to the theater it was PACKED! I mean the whole theater was full. We ended up two rows back from the front on the side. It was 7:20 on a school night and I figured the theater would empty. What I hadn't counted on was the fact that on Tuesday night it is apparently $5.00 Tuesday night. It was nice to get cheap tickets. It was not nice to sit in the front and to the idiot college kid who kept putting his feet on the back of my head rest. I should have let my toddler come back and pee on your lap. I'm just saying...putting your feet by someones head is gross!
Back to Big Hero 6though...so this is typical Disney movie...someone dies. WHY DISNEY! Isn't it possible to have a plot move and have people feel emotion without killing someone off. I was 21 years old before I had someone I love die. It took another ten years before I knew any one else die. I realize I'm pretty lucky in the grand scheme of life but there has to be some other way to move these movies along. My kids are starting to think being an orphan is cool....
Besides that though the movie was pretty great. I laughed a lot and I appreciated the fact that they made science look cool. What can I say, I'm a science nerd. Plus I have a kid in my life who has a mind geared toward engineering so anything to help put him to feel good about that I can really appreciate.
Hey speaking of engineering there was also this trailer for this movie Spare Parts at the beginning of the movie. I'm not going to lie I love these inspirational, beat the odds type movies. It doesn't hurt that this one also happens to be about engineering. Sports are great but let's be honest most of us aren't going to make a difference or a living for that matter on a field. Science or good teaching though, those are things most of us can obtain and a place we can realistically make a difference.
