“But Nightphoenix, that all happened, like, (looks at watch) four weeks ago! Why u wait so long to update??” Short answer: More squirrels. To continue the ramble:

What Brave did right and what it could have done better

Posted by nightphoenix on June 29, 2012 in Input, Screen |

Like many, I went to see Brave this last weekend. It was an enjoyable movie, although I don’t think we will be taking our six-year-old. This is the child who decided that Arrietty was too scary; thus, I don’t see him coping well with the bear scenes. Some of those scared me a bit. Warning: […]

Prom

Posted by Mistress of Feathers on May 23, 2011 in Input, Music, News |

No, I did not go to anyone’s prom. It’s been a long time since I was in high school, you know. However, last week I did take myself to the movie Prom, on the justification that it was a teenager movie and I write stories for teenagers. I ought to keep myself familiar with how […]

Last night

Posted by nightphoenix on September 25, 2010 in Screen |

Um. It is not wise to go see Legend of the Guardians, and then finish the last book in the Percy Jackson series in a single night. Unless you want some really strange dreams. (I’m pretty sure there was some Rah Xephon mixed in there too. 😛 ) However, Guardians is worth seeing for about […]

Inception and the Matrix

Posted by nightphoenix on August 14, 2010 in Input, Screen |

As you might guess from the title, the hubby and I finally got our chance to see this movie. It was well worth the wait. I think the last film I saw starring DiCaprio was Titanic, when I was what…12? 13? It’s not that I don’t like him as an actor, although there is a […]

Portrayal of children in popular media

Posted by nightphoenix on July 12, 2010 in Process |

So the hubby and I went to see Despicable Me on Saturday. It was an entertaining movie…solid story, solid character arcs, lots of funny moments that weren’t over-the-top. In fact, a lot of the humor was surprisingly smart for a movie of this genre, even the fart jokes and such. But I was especially struck […]

Humility

Posted by nightphoenix on June 26, 2010 in Process |

Last weekend, the hubby and I took Eli to see Toy Story 3 with my mom…and later that night, we saw The Karate Kid (minus Eli and my mom!). Toy Story 3 was good, but surprisingly…well, dark. I mean, some of stuff those toys were doing, some of the scenes, whew. Just the fact that […]

Payoff

Posted by nightphoenix on May 30, 2010 in Process |

I’ve been tossing an idea around in my head these last few weeks, and it was brought to the forefront yet again the other night after seeing the Prince of Persia. Which is, by the way, not a bad movie, and I quite enjoyed it. It wasn’t on par with Pirates, and I decided that […]

Wisdom from Ice Age

Posted by nightphoenix on March 2, 2010 in Input, Screen |

There’s a particular exchange from the movie Ice Age that I think rather illuminates why intimidation does not draw people closer to God. I know…deep, right? Here’s the actual passage: MANFRED: You…check for poop. SID: Why am I the poop-checker? MANFRED: Because returning the runt was your idea, because you’re small and insignificant, and because […]

The Lightning Thief

Posted by nightphoenix on February 23, 2010 in Input, Screen |

Yeah, yeah, I know it’s Tuesday. Deal. The hubby and I saw The Lightning Thief last Friday. Now I know what Debra Dixon was talking about, that you’ll never be able to watch a movie again without picking it apart. Gah. I was GMCing all the characters AND trying to determine where the hero was […]
