Shawn told his mum that he wanted to watch Wall-E last week.

So yesterday, we brought him to the cineplex at E-Hub to watch it.

Terribly expensive. Each of us had to pay $10, including our 5-year-old son.

This was the very first time Shawn has ever watched a movie inside a cinema. All along we were afraid he would be not be able to sit through the movie from beginning to end. We thought he would want to leave the cinema halfway through the movie.

When we first entered the cinema and the ads were shown, Shawn asked, “Why the TV screen so big one?”

Had to tell him it’s not a TV screen but a projector screen.

The movie is typical Pixar fanfare. 97 minute long. A bit too long for Shawn though. He asked his mum a few times, “Why so long one?”

Other than that, Shawn actually managed to sit through the whole movie without making us leave halfway and waste the ticket(s).

G asked me to take her to see this movie too. The last time we watched a movie was the "Bee Movie" and she couldn't sit through it at all. I'll definitely bring her, but I don't think we will be able to finish watching it. Getting a DVD would be more sensible, actually, but there's no "atmosphere" lah...

To LIS: Somehow I think Bee Movie has a more adult theme than a typical Pixar animated feature. You can create the cinema atmosphere if you set one room aside to be a mini theater complete with projector screen and state of the art sound system.

Then you can darken the room and get G's friends to watch the movie with her. Ha, ha, ha...! :D

Wow! That's commendable - Shawn being able to sit through the entire movie. He must have enjoyed it.

To HS: I guess Shawn probably didn't enjoy it as much as he did when he watched Cars :) I prefer Cars to Wall-E too :)

Hmm. $10. The DVD's going to come out in November for $27. I wonder if I should catch it in the cinema although I don't think there's any difference from watching in on big screen at home.

To TYC: There's no difference only if your home theater system is a high-end one :p

i've always been a sucker for good sound and vision when it comes to watching movies. That's why i can't stand the quality of VCDs.
