God, I feel like I`ve been to King`s Dominion. I`m queasy from the sugar and I feel like I rode all the twirly rides and the big roller coasters right after eating a bucket of curly fries and some cotton candy. And, of course, my kids are perfectly fine and screeching in delight. Yes, the Powerpuff Girls is that cool. My five year old is a giant fan so I had to go. Plus I didn`t want to subject myself to another motherfucking Disney movie so I was quite happy to take them to this. I like the fact that there was an Army of evil monkeys and they all had funny powers. I also loved the fact that they had just fucking MOUNTAINS of cartoon violence- like the Popeye cartoons of my childhood- so we all bonded. My 5 year old was yelling stuff at the screen and it was great: ``Use your POWERS!`` ``Don`t believe him!`` It was great. A couple parts might have been to intense for the younguns- like the Monkey Apocolypse at the end- but they always cut the tension with something goofy. My three year old never got scared, but she`s not really scared of anything. I was the most traumatized- what with the $19.75 I was charged at the concessions stand for popcorn, three drinks and a bag of skittles. There is also a part written DIRECTLY FOR MIKE NAIMARK. MIKE! READ NO MORE OF THIS!
There are these two guys they interview and they only speak in Van Halen titles. It`s fucking great. ``Now Jamie`s crying....``
Take your kids. It`s quality cartoon entertainment. My daughter is still randomly punching me in the stomach- pretending that I am an evil monkey. Unless your kids are scared easily. My kids chase each other with Lucha masks so this was fine.
The kidsized Hurican Ramirez mask fits both of them so one will usually run around with that screeching, "MONSTER! MONSTER!" and the other will wear my Shocker mask and do the same. It's very adorable/disturbing.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME (and, like three other people who showed up tonight with June 7th/8th birthdays) Phil Collins - "Sussudio" Led Zeppelin - "D'yer Maker" Human League - "Sound of the Crowd" (with hostess Arzu!)
