I couldn't pass the chance to blog about this one since it's a milestone for Gabriel. :) Though I'm weeks late in posting this since this happened last July 15th. Sneaking this post while Gabriel's fast asleep and Honey left for work (and I get no sleep). *no distractions :p*
It wasn't planned...I wanted to watch The Amazing Spiderman and Honey chose it at a time when the Yaya was on day-off. We were only supposed to buy some groceries. I've always wanted to bring him to watch an animated film something suited for his age but, well, Honey isn't into that type of movies and so this is it! :)
Honestly, I was hesitant to bring him since I know about kids' short attention span that might distract me and other viewers. And I was oh-so-right. He was behaving on the first hour just eating popcorn but a few minutes after the the popcorn was gone, he started talking and eventually started to leave his seat. Tsk! Good thing he wasn't the only kid/baby inside which spared me from
bigger embarrassment. :-p Well, I won't be bringing him to any movies other than animated anytime soon -- out of respect for other movie-goers and just because I want to enjoy my movies, too. :-p
Gabriel busy with his popcorn :)

The movie was good but not something to make me gush over like I did over the other recent "superhero" movie, The Avengers *I did on fb :p*. Or maybe I'm biased since I love, I repeat -- I love, Iron Man. :-p I haven't read the comics but this one did its purpose of giving the viewers an idea of how Spidey came to be, with a twist. The story is different from the first adaptation with Tobey Maguire as Spiderman. Well, it should be, otherwise, who's gonna watch it, right? :p Peter Parker's parents were brought to the story. And Peter Parker is "cooler" than the previous nerdy one, though he's still a nerd, but a very smart, cool, nerd. :p He listens to alternative rock songs, skateboards and he's cute. ;) I also liked the visual effects compared to previous Spiderman movies.
Gabriel's kind of fun before the movie...
My first time to watch a movie in a movie theater was when I was in grade school. But kids these days are very lucky. :)
*HELP! I tried to post using pics from flicker since my picasa account is almost full and I don't want to have to pay for additional storage. But for some reason, the pictures won't appear even if I set it on public. :( Can you suggest any other sites, please? :) Or a way to upload more pics in picasa without paying for the storage? Thanks much!
And thanks for reading my post. :)
