I went to see “The Fantastic 4” at the cinema over the weekend. I though it was pretty cool, but it did suffer from the usual problem of spending half the film telling you how they became superheros. Why anyone would want to make Jessica Alba invisible is beyond me 🙂
I think I’m going to buy my one nephew (3.5 years old) a “Thing” action figure if I see one. Just before the film was released in the UK he saw a picture of Thing in a magazine and the following exchange happened.
James: What’s that?
Me: It’s a man called Thing.
James: What’s wrong with his skin? Is he poorly?
James: Is he made of rock?
James: Why has he got big boots on?
Me: Because he’s got big feet.
James: Why? …. Repeat to infinity.
Still makes me laugh thinking of the thought process. Kids brains are cool!
On the subject of James, while I was visiting him this weekend he took my Ganesha figure that I always carry in my pocket and hid it in one of his wellington boots. Needless to say that got found after I left, so I’m without him for a whole week. He’s been with me for a few months now, so I’m feeling a little lost without him.
