If you live in the US, my current favorite movie, What We Do in the Shadows, is now available! You can also rent it through Redbox if you don't have the money to buy it! So there are now no good excuses for why you can't watch it! There's something in it for everybody (except for children - it's rated R). But I promise you'll get a laugh out of it. I think it's the greatest thing ever. And after you watch it, leave me a comment and let me know what you think! :)

Inside Out. It's still in theaters. Go see it. It's not really for kids. I mean, it's marketed as for kids, but adults will get more out of it, trust me. And if you miss it in theaters, rent it when it comes out on DVD.
Here are some things I took away from this film:
1) It's not OK to pretend to be happy all the time. Sadness can sometimes be a crucial emotion to our growth and health.
2) Our personalities shift over time. Who we are isn't set in stone. We are shaped by our experiences. The self is always changing
3) Many memories don't fit into one emotional box. Some memories are both joyous and sorrowful. And that's okay. The world isn't black and white, and neither are our emotions. Sometimes its the gray emotions that are a part of our core being.
All this from a kids movie? Yes. And there was a lot more (I want to see it again) but those are the three main things I took away from it on this viewing. I was amazed at how smart a film this was. Oh, and warning: if you go, be sure to take some tissues because I bawled like a baby.
