    The spousal unit and I saw Toy Story 3.

    Pixar hits another home run. Big thumbs-up from Roy.

    Funny and clever and witty as all get-out, great animation, great plot, sweet, touching, and as humane as a movie there is out now. Roy had to break out the tissues.

    The intro cartoon Night and Day is very good as well.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Interesting that you mention that. I was at my sister's last night and we were watching Superhero which is a spoof on Spiderman and a bunch of other superhero flicks. It was my sister and her husband and their 14 year old son with my mother and I. My sister's 17 year old son was downstairs watching She's Out of My League with his youth group. My 12 year old niece and her friend were spying on them and they kept coming upstairs and telling us they were watching a movie with a lot of F bombs in it. Superhero was a typical PG 13 movie with the usual stuff but close tot he end, one of the characters dropped an F bomb right when my niece and her friend were upstairs. That was the only one in the movie.

    I just don't get the obligation to throw 1 out there. My wife cringes anytime she hears it, and unfortunately, impact who she recommends it to. It's like they are trying to gain some street cred by dropping it....and I think they'd be better off staying with the overall language tone.

    It bothered me/ struck me as odd... hearing it in that movie.

    Conversely, just watched Pulp Fiction a couple of weeks ago....not a problem at all with 67 F-Bombs (that may be a conservative number)

    Toy Story 3 - I was wary of a sequel, but Pixar continues to get it done. Very good family movie.

    Avatar - Maybe it was all the hype, but I was disappointed with Avatar. It was pretty to look at, but for a nearly 3-hour film, there was very little character development. I thought the story was predictable, and the acting was average at best. I was never drawn into the story. I also thought the swearing seemed forced, and the Rambo ending seemed out of place. However, I'm probably the only one that didn't like it based on its box office take.

    Avatar was more spectacle than story. The characters and plot were just there to serve the special effects.

    I had "The Book of Eli" at the top of my netflix queue, but after "The Road," I decided to give post-apocolyptic movies a rest for a while.

    Eh, I actually think the mother had the right idea, but that kind of discussion would be Peanut Gallery worthy in a hurry so I won't go into it.

    Anyway, there was a time when depressing fare like The Road was more interesting to me, now not so much (not so coincidentally really since I had children). Sometimes it's necessary, other times it's just wallowing in misery and I don't really see the point in experiencing the latter, especially when there's enough actual heartbreak and struggle in life. There must be conflict of some sort in every book or movie of course, but I prefer books and movies where the conflict isn't of the extreme cannibal apocalypse variety I guess. Worthy meditations on fatherhood or not.
