whatever happens

I saw two movies today, and I really liked both.

Meet the Robinsons was the first one. I hadn't watched it before because the preview made it look like yet another CGI thing, and unlike many people, I haven't liked everything Pixar has put out. But zora113 talked me into it, so I gave it a try, and I LOVED it! What looked silly in the previews was fun, and as Z promised me, the movie has heart. I actually liked it better than Ratatouille, even.

The other was The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. I approached this one warily, since everyone I've heard speak about it either loved it or yawned. But I thought it was a terrific adventure movie, and I enjoyed every minute.

I saw The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen some time ago, and I remember liking it a lot, although I must admit that it is one of those movies that has flown entirely out of my head. Time for another viewing perhaps?
Meet the Robinsons is the love of my life. No lie.
Yay! I'm so glad you liked it. As I said, I was shocked at how really good and heart felt it was. I wasn't going to touch it with a ten foot pole after the previews, but some of my work buddies convinced me, just as I convinced you. Excellent little film. And you know what? It wasn't Pixar, it was Disney. It was the first thing Lasseter ordered an overhaul done on when he took over Walt Disney Feature Animation. And good for him! It certainly has his stamp.

We'll definitely have to chat about it very soon!
