Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

Wow, what a film! This movie was so rich and packed with bright, detailed scenes that the 3D glasses were almost unnecessary. The producers picked a great story, and the filmmakers did a great job. I loved the humor, the snappy timing of the animation, and how the scenes just kept growing in scale and excitement without losing their heart or sense of pace.
Up and Monsters vs. Aliens were examples of great animated movies that came out this year, and CWACOM took the medium in another great direction. With so many great 3D movies coming out, there's more reason than ever to go out to the movies. Tina and I decided that when this comes to DVD, we'll make sure to have some burgers, pancakes, ice cream, and gummi bears to eat while they're featured on screen (taste-o-vision?).

Jack O' Lanterns of Years Past

It's almost Halloween, and although I normally don't dress up for it these days, I've started to enjoy carving pumpkins. Since I might not have time to carve one this year, I thought I'd post some pics of the ones I've done recently. Hope you enjoy them.


Barack O'Lantern (Yes We

Heath Ledger's Joker from The Dark Knight:

Pale Man monster from Pan's Labyrinth:

If I end up having time, I'd probably stay with my "movie I've enjoyed that year" theme and do a pumpkin of Dr. Cockroach from Monsters vs. Aliens:

Hm, that was easy. Maybe I'll just Photoshop pumpkins from now on...
