Double Feature

It's spring break and we didn't make any plans to go anywhere, so when I had the day off, I took Eryn to two movies.  We went to the animated movie The Croods and G.I. Joe: Retribution.  That is just a weird double feature.  I really enjoyed The Croods and I didn't think I would.  Primarily because Nick Cage usually takes a few approval points off the top of anything.  But it was a very good daddy-daughter movie, and although it lacked a bit in story quality, it was a beautiful movie.  Whomever was in charge of textures - the water and the smoke - did a wonderful job.  I think they were better looking than the real thing.

As for G.I. Joe, Eryn really enjoyed it so it was amusing.  She compared it to a game of Call of Duty and thought The Rock's cupcake shooting gun (for shooting cupcakes, not like it had cupcakes as projectiles) was funny.  Toward the end, I mentioned that Cobra Commander must actually be Heinz Doofenshmitz behind his silvery, face-concealing mask because all of his satellites came with a very obvious self-destruct button. In that metaphor, Perry the Platypus was played by Dwayne The Rock Johnson.
