Am I The Only One Wondering…

…why they keep making children’s movies now that my kids are grown?

Most of them look pretty awful.  Seems like such a waste of valuable screen space.

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels, growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.

I have never seen Frozen either. It looked a bit soppy. But I did used to love the Happy Valley Dinosaur movies and would sing along to them incredibly loudly. I have never had children I was just using a lot of cocaine. FYI: I never did drugs in front of children. But being on drugs put me in an incredibly silly frame of mind where I was much better with children than I am now I am sober!

Add me to the never seen Frozen list. I think some kids’ movies when done well are very good because they have an underlying satire that the adults find funny while highly entertaining for the kids. The first couple of Shreks come to mind as well as Toy Story, Finding Nemo and Despicable Me.

You are with though, there is also an awful lot of crap out there!

I was ‘forced’ into watching Frozen. (teacher/mum) It was actually pretty good. It’s when you have to watch them again and again that it becomes a pain. The Little Mermaid comes to mind. I knew every line in that and did a fair impersonation of Ursula to my eldest’s little mermaid! Poor son had to be Flounder (the fish). 🙂
