Movie Review: Wall-E (12/27)…

One word: Burn-E. That to me was the best part of the whole movie. The bonus short film added to the DVD release of “Wall-E.” In other words, I was not impressed by the movie. It had beautiful (and I mean gorgeous) animation. Some of the best that I have seen. But the story: not so much. Yes, there was some social commentary (and one of the people that I watched it with yesterday noticed it right away. His exact words were: “I don’t know if I like the social commentary.”), but nothing that hasn’t been said in live-action films, and maybe said better. Once it was over, all I could think about was the animation. The movie didn’t move me, or impress me in terms of thought or emotion. So, would I recommend this movie: No. Would I watch it again: no. Maybe someone would like it but I didn’t. I would watch Burn-E again though.

Christmas at the Wests (12/26)…

So my boys got enough money from relatives, chores, allowance, gift cards, etc. that they could buy themselves a game system. (Which i find funny because my wife said that we would NEVER have a game system unless it was a Wii that we could do exercise stuff with.) My youngest really wanted an xbox so he could get the game Battlefront 2 and become the grand champion online, but, alas, they ended up getting a Nintendo Game Cube. So here are some pictures of the boys playing their “new” Game Cube.

Nintendo Game Cube.

Happy Winter Solstice Day (12/22)…

Today is the first full day of winter solstice, although it officially began yesterday 12/21 according to GMT, but it was nighttime our time, so this is the first full day that we can welcome in old man Winter.
