…to say that I’ve been out of town for a couple of weeks, and don’t really have any writing news to share. I wanted to do a post on the movie TOMORROWLAND and how it is positive and inspirational for young people who might watch it and aren’t too jaded to miss its messages. Maybe I still will. But for now, I just wanted to say that I’m still alive and kicking, and I hope to get back to posting here and on my FB page with increased regularity.
Meanwhile, if you’re looking for something to read and you have a spare buck, look over there to your right and click on the cover of my book THE CAVE. It’s received a couple of good reviews but could use more.
Welcome back! I’m interested in seeing your take on Tomorrowland. Our weekend’s a washout, so we might see both Inside Out and Max…yeah, I know, hordes of kids. My wife wanted to see Jurassic World, so we went last weekend. Chris Pratt was great, but it was all a wee bit predictable.
Spoiler alert: Audience actually cheered with the appearance of the T Rex. Interesting role changes for the dinos.
Saw a lot of little kids there too–maybe not an appropriate film for them, because quite a few were covering their eyes. I’ll get my four-year-old grandson’s POV and report back. 🙂
We went to see INSIDE OUT this weekend. We enjoyed it. I always find it interesting how Pixar can appeal to adults and kids with their films. And Pete Docter (the director) has a way of really tugging the heartstrings with his projects. (I think he also directed UP, which I loved. May be my favorite Pixar film. My son showed me this meme going around comparing UP to TWILIGHT…basically saying that UP told a better, more emotional love story in its first five minutes than TWILIGHT did in three (or however many) films…)
Not sure I have much to say about TOMORROWLAND that you didn’t say on your own Movie Reviews 14 (and where we discussed it a bit) but I’ll probably give it a try!
