So I totally have this thing for little old men. Not just like little and old..I'm talking Anna Nicole Smith old man stuff...except for the ones that wear diapers or the ones that work at fairs and have orange Cheetos smeared across their lips. Okay, maybe not Anna Nicole Smith old man stuff, I'm not attracted to old men sexually or anything (wait..was she?) but I just find their "feebleness" adorable. Wait, I'm not saying feeble in a bad way, I just think they're so cute and charming...okay?

Moving on, last night I decided at the very last minute to take M to see Up at the new Westmount Cineplex. If you haven't been to the new Cineplex, I totally recommend it...BUT be sure to buy your tickets way in advance. We had the unfortunateness of driving all the way there in a torrential downpour only to have to park 14 kilometers away from the entrance to wait in a long and winding line only to be told that the 7:30 show is now SOLD OUT. In fact, all the 7:30 shows were SOLD OUT so basically at this point we were pretty much screwed.

I did get a chance to check the VIP section of this theatre out a few weeks ago and I was absolutely blown away...especially by the umbrella drinks, but I really wanted to compare the VIP to the regular theatres, because that is totally how I roll!

So I took the disappointed youngster home, and as it turns out we made it back to the car just in time before it was washed away by the big giant river that was in the parking lot (WTF?) and I totally had to wade through it...in my CROCS. We drove all the way home and after sitting for about 20 minutes I decided we would go back for the 9:30 show. It would end late, but he really wanted to see that movie and I really wanted to check out the theatre like old men so we went back.

We got settled all in to our cozy seats and were shortly joined by a crazy guy and his two old lady friends (dates?) and then on the other side of us a quiet crazy who was all by himself. I wanted so badly to ask him why he was all by himself at a kid's movie...but then I remembered that I often go to movies alone. How sad.

I really didn't have much hope for this movie. I have been far from impressed with Ratatouille (crap I'm too tired to look up that spelling) and Wall-E, so I really didn't have any expectations. I was totally impressed! It was hilarious and cute, and heartwarming...just such a great Disney movie that has grown with the times. I kind of missed what happened to the little boy's dad, but he wasn't there for him and they showed his mom...I don't want to give too much away, but it was just such a great story.

It just blows my mind how far these movies have come..not only in the stories but the technology as well! This 3D stuff makes me dizzy and dries out my eyeballs is incredible! The most exciting part of the night had to be seeing the new Toy Story 3 trailer in 3D. I can't believe it's going to be over a year before this movie comes out and they are already advertising for it!

Anyway, if you like old men love Disney movies and have been disappointed with them lately, definitely go see this one!

Hello..this is my blog. I bought this fancy theme and I don't know what to write here just yet. Maybe one day remind me I have to write something inspiring here?


  1. Hehe, so much awesome striked-out words.

    I can't wait to see Up and try out this new VIP theatre. I thought Ratataty was OK, but I loved Wall-E so I have high hopes. Maybe I'll go there alone and drink umbrella drinks until they kick me out. Do they have bouncers there? Oh I do hope so.

  2. If they don't have bouncers they probably should!! Those umbrella drinks are mighty addictive but mighty expensive too! :/

    It was an awesome awesome movie...I laughed so many times (even when others weren't laughing)...maybe that makes me a little insane ;)
