1. Watching movies with Fiona is really funny. She's got the attention span to sit through Charlotte's Web or Cinderella or Beauty and the Beast, but something like Ratatouille has too much talking in it and she loses interest before the end.

We've been trying to get her to watch new movies (on the weekend, we go to the playground and watch movies) because she always wants to watch either Spongebob SquarePants Movie or what she calls Willburd (Charlotte's Web). So this past weekend, we watched Lilo and Stitch, which I'd never seen before. OMG, why did nobody tell me how hard this movie was going to tap dance on my emotions? Emma and I sat there with tears streaming down our faces pretty much the whole movie. It was so good and so sweet, and I felt so badly for how hard Nani was trying and still failing to meet the appropriate standards for keeping Lilo with her. AND THEN EMMA AND I BOTH JUMPED TO THE SPECTER OF EMMA HAVING TO TAKE CARE OF HER BABY SISTER AND THEN WE ALL CRIED SOME MORE AND FIONA THOUGHT WE WERE STUPID.

2. Josh and I watched Storks, which turned out to be awesome. Highly recommended. We just had the TV on in the background and then got sucked in because it was so cute and funny.

3. We saw Wonder Woman today and really liked it. SPOILERS )

I went to see this with Emma yesterday, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I've been reading a lot of grousing about everything in this movie from Emma Watson to the music to the yellow dress to the pacing; lots and lots of people are prepared to despise this movie (most of the grousing is from before the movie even aired, naturally). I thought it was pretty great.

With Emma gone this week to camp, Josh and I have watched a lot of movies and read a lot of books. Fiona goes to bed at 7:00, so we've had two extra hours each day to kill.

Yesterday we went to see Inside Out because Emma expressed negative interest in seeing the movie. One of the best movies I've seen in quite a while, y'all. We listened to the NPR interview with the writer of the film several weeks ago, and I was really impressed with the efforts he and the film team made to represent memory and cognitive processes as scientifically as possible. I am even more impressed now that I've seen the movie.

What I do not recommend is John Wick. Josh and I watched that last night, and it was pretty middling. spoilers; brief mention of animal harm )

Tonight we're starting our good friends on Treme. He's a musician who just spent the past umpteen years living in LA, so I expect him to know everybody in the show. Should be fun.

One episode of Rome left. Joe Carroll in eyeliner makes a girl's heart go pitter patter. LOL

Emma and I watched The Croods tonight, and I really really liked it. I am a sucker for a story about parents realizing that they have to let their children grow and change and make their own decisions while the children simultaneously realize that their parents aren't complete dumbasses and make most of their decisions out of love or fear for their children's well being. Which is probably why Finding Nemo reduces me to a quivering mess every single time I watch it. The Croods was no exception. Serious sniffle time at the end. IDK what was wrong with me (maybe I'm tainted by Littlefoot's mommy), but I was genuinely worried that the movie was going to end with Grug dying or permanently separated from his family. Sometimes I think I shouldn't be allowed to watch cartoons. Or credit card commercials. Or Very Special Episodes of Television. LOL
