A Father's Love

Today was a daddy-daughter day. I took Emilie out to lunch today and she wanted to see "The Last Airbender". ONLY a father's love would get me into the movie theater to see that film. My expectations were very low. The movie was worse than I imagined it could be.

It's a movie, made from a cartoon.

Rating 1-10

Acting                              2
Plot and Script                 2
Effects                             2
Casting                            2
Buddhist Message            1
Costumes                         1
Karate                              3 (the karate really wasn't a 3 but it was a karate movie - sort of - so I'm letting my generosity shine through.)

So I give The Last Airbender a generous 2 - meaning, don't see it.

It's $17.00 and hour and a half of my life I'll never get back.

LOL. Too bad you couldn't sneak in a dvd player, a Predator disc and some earphones.

You might be out $17.00 and an hour and a half of your life BUT turn it around, you had that hour and a half with your daughter and that's priceless!

You're an awesome Dad LL, if I had a dad when I was growing up I'd want one just like you! (My dad passed away when I was 4 1/2 so yes I did have a dad but very little memory of him.)

Thanks for the heads up on the movie, I'll cross that off my Bucket List.

Haha! Wish my Dad would indulge us!!
Hope alls well with you LL.

That is hilarious! hahaha Why did Emilie even pick it? So random...Remember when we saw Pluto Nash? Now that was a bad movie.

LL said...

Azra - I enjoy indulging the girls.

Darlin - Yeah, that one does NOT belong on the "bucket list".

Amanda - Emilie said she enjoyed the cartoon series when she was little. Yes, I remember Pluto Nash and this one was even worse in my opinion. However, I didn't take 4 girls to this one the way I did to Pluto Nash.

Like darlin said, that was an hour and a half with your daughter. You can't beat that.

I don't regret the time with my daughter...because I confess that I tortured her a bit. About 15 minutes into the movie, she asked, "Dad, do you want to leave?"

I replied (innocently), "No, sweatheart - let's sit through the whole film".

She asked me a couple more times if I wanted to leave. Each time I declined, opting instead to make her watch it with me...
