Karate Boy and Pixar Studios

Took Will to karate again today… he had fun, but I couldn’t really hide some disappointment as well… he didn’t try much, didn’t focus at all, didn’t follow anyone’s instructions. I know he’s only four, but we’re trying to get him to mature a bit… he’s supposed to start school next year, and he’s doing ...

Bolt: Not every animation is by Pixar

“Bolt” was quite a fun movie. I went and saw it with Will this afternoon, and it was a fun kids movie. But evidenced by the above title, of course every kids movie can’t be by Pixar, or at Pixar quality level. That said, this one did benefit by having John Lasseter as executive producer, ...

Remy likes vegemite!

That is just one of the things I learned from Will today… he’s just full of conversation 🙂 It’s so good to see him engaging with food like this, possibly for the first time ever — Ratatouille is just another Pixar miracle, for a whole different reason. But who knew that Remy the rat liked ...

Wall-E day!

And I know this because I saw it three weeks ago at a special screening, with Will, and he’s the ...

The highs and lows of Wall-E 2

It was a big day today as I took Will to his first ever big screen movie. We went to see a special charity screening of Wall-E, the new Pixar movie. And before you take the title above the wrong way, the movie was great. Warm, funny, clever and original, it was brilliant in the ...

The Pixar method for … everything

The cutest thing I saw today was after convincing Will to have some of what we were eating for dinner (fried rice with beef and vegetables), that he decided he would as long as we got his Finding Nemo cutlery out, he’d give it a try. Then, in an attempt to eat only the rice, ...

Happily easily pleased

Will is really taken with Cars at the moment — the most recent Pixar movie we own. He particularly likes the very end credits, where the injokes go as far as having Car versions of all the Pixar movies, with many jokes about voices and so on. It’s funny stuff, and I like that he ...
