Lobby of the Day #2499

Jacob says the superhero movie bubble is going to burst someday, but so far it’s still growing strong. I had to race to reach the theater in time for Ant Man today, far out near Jack London Square, and there we watched a tiny person run around in giant landscapes, backed by some lovely giant ants.

We’ve seen enough movies like this now that we’re familiar with the plot devices and tropes – all the little hints thrown in that you know will end up being key later. Watching movies changes as you grow up: when you’re small everything surprises you, sucks you in; when you’re older it’s more about the craftsmanship of the film, how well they tell a story you’ve heard many times before.

Today’s been a day. A visit with Emily and a movie with Jacob and his friend, and everyone’s lives are still changing. I hope things go well for them all.

you don’t mean that
