So, what to do on a cold Saturday night and you’re on the tail end of a cold and don’t feel like doing much? You get your jammies on, cuddle up under a warm blankie, have a cup of hot chocolate with a cat or two (or three or four) next to you and watch a movie!
For the first time in decades, we watched 101 Dalmatians. And what a fun movie it was.
I didn’t remember much of it from my childhood so it was like seeing it for the first time. And I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. It amazes me how much I actually hate the bad guys in these movies and I cheer when they get their just desserts. And I always smile (and even clap) for the happy endings.
And one of the best parts? The biggest hero of all was a tabby kitty cat! Yay, Sargeant Tibbs! Good job, old chap! It was pretty hairy going, though.
You’re never too old for a Disney movie. Never. Check this one out. Whether you’ve seen it once or a hundred times, this was a wonderful movie. The extras are pretty cool, too, especially if you’re a Disneyphile (like we are). I enjoy hearing new things about Disney, little pieces of trivia, those “well, did you know that….”
And the restoration of the film is awesome. Much nicer than the VHS (that I popped in the player, just to check…did I ever tell you that Brian’s aunt and uncle owned a video rental store, back before the Blockbusters and Hollywood videos came along? When the big places came along and he couldn’t afford to compete, we bought one each of the Disney cartoon movies) version. So crisp and so clear.
If you’d like to see the trailer for the movie, just click the link below.
Two thumbs up and many paws, too (we actually had a couple of cats sitting below the television, watching the action).
But wait! I'm not done yet!
I've got more to say!
