I’m shocked! I thought I’d do better at the blog challenge, but I didn’t! I missed 5 out of 7 of the days to post. Man oh man…
So I spent this weekend offline. I went over to my folks most of the weekend and took my sister and my son out to see HOP. Let me just say….it was probably about the crappiest plot I’ve ever seen in a kids move. I’m shocked at the amount of…ahem…JELLYBEANS…we feed to our children, expecting them to swallow it. (Yes, the rabbit poops jelly beans.) The whole plot was weakly centered around a 30 year old man who realizes his life long ambition is to BE the Easter bunny.
Okay, I don’t make any claims to be christian. But this movie was vaguely offensive to both the Christian and Pagan notions of “Easter”. Or maybe I’m just reading into it to much. But we’ve GOT to stop dumbing down our children and ourselves! We shouldn’t force our kids to watch this mindless CRAP and feeding into that hollywood idiocy that thinks a few good one-liners is an excuse for shoving it down our throats.
Sorry, I really didn’t care for the movie. Rant over.
