Let me start by saying that I never pretend to be all that current. Since having Caroline 3 years ago, I rarely am the first person to see any new movie unless it is something of cinematical greatness and importance such as Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby or The Devil Wears Prada.
In the same way that I don’t know any songs currently on the top 10 list, y’all can also make a safe bet that I haven’t seen the majority of Oscar nominated movies over the last 3 years.
Last week, thanks to my new fancy AT&T Dish Network service, I was able to record Finding Neverland. Tonight, I actually watched it and let me say that I loved this movie.
We watch a lot of Peter Pan in this house because it is Caroline’s all time favorite Disney movie. Who needs Cinderella and Princess Jasmine when you can have Captain Hook, a crocodile, Indians, and Tinkerbell?
Maybe that’s why I loved Finding Neverland so much, because the story of Peter Pan is so fresh in my mind having watched it 187 times in the last month. All I know is I loved the line when Johnny Depp as J.M. Barrie said, “Little boys should never be put to bed because they’ll wake up in the morning a whole day older”. It reminded me that even days like yesterday go by so fast and she’ll be grown before I blink.
