The Sox on QEFTSG

Mr. Dump sent me a link to an article that said five of the Red Sox just taped an episode of Queer Eye. I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to seeing this. And no, before some of you start to hyperventilate, they didn’t make Damon cut his hair.

So I sent him back a link to a humorous article about how any piece of classic literature can be made better by adding Kevin Millar.

And so, I share with all of you, too.

We saw Robots Sunday night and I enjoyed all the previews. Everyone in our group turned to look at Mr. Dump when they showed the preview for the Jimmy Fallon/Drew Barrymore movie Fever Pitch about the obsessed Red Sox fan. Actually, because a lot of it was filmed during actual games last season, the cameramen would always show us when they were filming in the stands, so I feel more connected to that movie. Plus it includes the road to the World Series. Hey, it’s about the Red Sox, so it has to be good, right?

We are also now looking forward to seeing the new Herbie movie. It actually looks really perfect for seven year old boys. And of course, the new Star Wars Trailer. So far, so good.

Oh, my thoughts on Robots: Amazing to look at. You forget it’s animation half the time. But I just can’t give it more than a B, and I can’t even put my finger on why. Maybe the story was a little too thin, and the script a little too light on jokes and heavy on Robin Williams. Wayyyy too heavy on Robin Williams. I love the guy, but I didn’t know he’d have every other line in the movie. So yes, see it. There are two scenes that will make you say “wow” and I actually preferred the one that they aren’t hawking as The Greatest Animated Scene Ever Filmed (or whatever they are saying. Sheesh.). If you’ve seen it, I’m talking about the scene at Bigwell’s house. I thought THAT was the coolest scene in the movie.

One last thought: my son doesn’t want to wear the gloves that make his hands “smell like boots.” I totally agree with him.
