“Sunset” Cedar Park, 2018

こんばんは。How’s it going?

This morning Bay and I went to the movies to see Pixar’s Coco. It was excellent! I loved the story and the animation… and Dante the dog was so funny. However, I was really expecting to be teary-eyed at the end since I’ve heard from multiple people that they cried, but although it did tug on my heartstrings my eyes didn’t get watery. Not even close to Your Name (君の名は) for me. But it was still fun and I enjoyed it a lot more than Inside Out, which I thought was over-rated.

Later in the afternoon, I watched 5 Centimeters Per Second by Makoto Shinkai (Your Name) and enjoyed it a lot. There’s a lot of things left unsaid in the three short vignettes, and I liked that. The animation was of course beautiful like all his movies, and I think I enjoyed the second vignette, Cosmonaut, the best. I guess because it has surfing, supercubs, and rockets. 😀

Speaking of movies, I’ve added my 2018 Movies & Books page, in which I list out what I’ve watched and read for the year. So far, just these two movies.

Today’s photo is of the sunset we enjoyed. The sky had a cool, wintry color.

I hope you had a nice Saturday!
