So I have spent the day inside doing not much of anything. (Also I've had a cold and so I didn't use this day productively at all...) I rented two movies in anticipation of this on my way home yesterday. I already watched Adam and have The Brothers Bloom soon to come. I was just thinking about a couple things...
First, isn't it strange when films have alternate endings? Thankfully this was just a slightly different take on the same ending. But sometimes it's a completely different thing and that bothers me. It bothers me because an ending is what makes the whole story. If you change the ending, it becomes a different story entirely.
Second, isn't funny when you have to explain to children what pretend or make-believe is? Children are generally so imaginative themselves, but it can be hard for them to be confronted with someone else's imagination. And then, when you have a child who doesn't understand imagination, usually because they are not at a developmentally appropriate stage, trying to explain it can be challenging!
That's all. I really enjoyed the movie, although I was a bit disappointed by the ending. (Both of them.)
