I must be getting old because they just don’t make movies like they used to. Given the choice, I always choose an old favorite over a new and senseless movie…
Now get off my lawn.
Although my son doesn’t have the attention span for a feature film (almost made it through Planes… almost) he has shown in an interest in a few of my absolute favorite movies of all time! He may get his looks and silliness from daddy, but maybe, just maybe he gets his taste in movies from me.
Not sure if it is a mutual fascination with dinosaurs or the fact that my toddler is part velociraptor, but in the few minutes he will sit and watch the movie, he is full of oooh’s and ahhh’s and oh no’s. This is a nostalgic movie that has aged very well and never gets boring no matter how many times I’ve watched it.
My son mostly only watches the 4242 (or R2D2 as he is credited in the film) parts, but how could a toddler not like a movie with light sabres and space ships, and robots, and explosions, and beeps and boops and flashing lights? Someday he’ll better understand how epic the story is too (Luke, I am your father). </nerd>
This was the first movie I ever saw in a theater and my son just loves the special effects (no matter how silly they seem now). You aren’t surprised that a toddler is interested in a 50 foot marshmallow man, are you?
hope think he will grow to love:
Back to The Future
