I've had a hard time getting into the Christmas spirit this year. I guess all the grumpy people at work got in the way. so a couple of days ago I went for a little walk to look at decorations around my neighborhood. before I left my mother told me to go to a specific house 'cause it was spectacular and I should really see it. so I went on my walk and I saw the house that Ma had mentioned and it really was amazing the folks in that house did a great job. but it was another house far later in my journey that gave me the joy I was hoping to find. all that was at this house were some lights and a 2-D display of a train and it reminded me of some small plastic trains that we used to decorate our light switches as kids. and it reminded me of all the Christmas eves we'd spent at my grandmothers house. at this point it struck me yet again that it's the small things that are important during this season.

Yes ladies and gentlemen it is indeed that time again. That time when I become obsessed with some new piece of media. This time it's Disney's Bolt. The main character is just so unbelievably adorable I can't help myself, and I must say that Disney had been in a bit of a rut with the movie making but with them putting out movies like Meet The Robinsons and Bolt which have far more depth and character development than movies like Fox and the Hound 2, I'm not really worried about their future success. But I digress, the fact of the matter is that Bolt is a great film and if you see it in 3D I am pleased to report that they kept the gimmicks to a minimum. and it is movies like these that make me really really want to write for Disney.
