Beauty and the Beast is much better written than Ponyo though. But yeah, B&B isn't the nicest looking Disney film. Partly because they were experimenting with early computer animation.
Friday: Jess and I went out for Malaysian and then saw Bridesmaids - which I mostly liked. It gets too broad in places.
Saturday: Had friends over for board games. Was meant to be board games then a movie, but they just wanted to keep board gaming all night. We played from 1ish - 10, with a dinner break. Pretty good innings. (Played Merkator, Alhambra, Caylus Magna Carta and Colosseum).
Sunday: Jess had the girls over for a crafternoon, so I went and saw Kung Fu Panda 2 with a friend. So boring and pointless and disappointing. Then we watched Paul, which I had avoided because I was convinced it would be terrible, but we actually quite enjoyed it. And then we finished with John Carpenter's The Ward. Which was an amazingly bad movie. Like, boring and dumb, and not fun at all, but then with the lamest, most played-out twist. For his first movie in 10 years it could not have been more terrible. I can only assume he hasn't watched a movie himself in the last 20 years, or he'd have known not to do what he did. Blech.
