iPhone 7 Woes

I spaced out last night, and didn’t get my order in, so I’ve got more time to ponder which color to get. I’ve historically been a white iPhone person, and when I’ve dabbled with black, I’ve always been tired of it quickly and ready to go back as soon as the new model came out. But the new black options look great and—let’s face it—a white iPhone 7 is going to look almost identical to the white iPhones 6 I’ve had for awhile.

First world problems, I know. I can’t believe I missed the window to order one, though!

The Iron Giant

Apropos of my recommendation for Kubo, let me recommend taking the time to enjoy the new release of Iron Giant: The Signature Edition. The Iron Giant is one of my all-time favorite animated movies, and is a fantastic movie for the family. Scratch that: It’s one of my favorite movies, period. Watch it now.

Kubo and the Two Strings

Ainsley and I went to see Kubo and the Two Strings and loved it. She’s almost 8, and I’d say that’s about the youngest age who can start to appreciate the melancholy nature of much of the film and the relatively complicated relationships Kubo has with his family. That said, the stop-motion animation is beautiful, and the characters and designs are fabulous, and something that will attract younger kids.

Highly recommended.
