Cinema: The Last Mimzy

I am way late in posting this. It has been weeks since we saw this movie, but a few weeks ago we did the actual go out and see a movie thing and the movie we saw was The Last Mimsy, which is based on a 1940’s short story called Mimsy were the Borogoves which I have of course not read.

In any case, I *really* liked this movie. It is a sweet family movie. There is nothing deep here. There is nothing controversial or thought provoking. You don’t come out feeling like it has changed your life or anything. But it is just solidly cute and sweet. And OK, many people do not like that kind of movie at all, and would feel like it was torture, but I like those kinds of movies.

I’m not sure I really have much more than that to say. Click the movie poster to go to Wikipedia if you want more on the plot and stuff. As for me, the summary is just that I came out going “Awwww….” kind of like when you see a cute kitten or puppy or whatnot. And that was enough.

Oh, and I liked the song at the end by Roger Walters. I’ll have to get a copy of that.

    “twas brillig and the slithy toves
    did gyre and gimble in the wabe,
    all mimsy were the borogroves
    and the momeraths outgrabe.”

    …and that was from memory!
