~ watching UP ~
after what feels like a long wait, today we went to see UP in the theater. oh, what a wonderful movie… (that includes the Partly Cloudy short at the beginning of the show). it really makes me feel warm and fuzzy… so sweet and romantic.
this time, we brought aina along to the movie theater. yes, this is her first time to watch a movie in the theater! what a milestone! since her height is slightly below 90cm, aina can go in for free. she just has to sit on my lap the whole time.
she loves Ratatouille, so we thought a Pixar movie would be a good choice. still, i was kinda nervous that she would get bored and whine during the entire movie. and we had to leave the theater early.
but, surprise, suprise! she actually stayed and watched the whole movie, starting with the advertisements and previews, all the way to the end of the movie credit! she seems to enjoy the whole experience: she was cracking up along with us at the sight of russell being tossed around. she laid on my chest with her hands grabbing popcorn in the popcorn bag during the calm and relaxing part, and sat up-right during the intense moments. the funny thing is that she shoved the popcorn into her mouth much faster during intense scenes… i guess that happens to kids, too, eh?
there are times when she was scared, mostly of the loud sound (during the thunder in the Partly Cloudy movie). she would slowly move back and ask for a hug. i thought it was cute…
she did ask to go home once, though. it was during the sad scene where russell got angry at carl. she was sad and was uncomfortable watching the movie. good thing that she recovered and her eyes were glued back to the screen.
honestly, UP is the best movie for aina. it has balloons, little kid and dogs. no wonder she would stay all the way to the end :)
so, does this mean we can start watching movies in the theater regularly? well, probably not. kids movies maybe yes, but G.I. Joe may have to wait until it goes to DVD…
