Ratchet & Clank movie. Daily. Sometimes more than once. Well, it was finally released this past weekend. Guess what we did? Oh yeah, went to the movie theater.
So, here's the thing—I wasn't really familiar with Ratchet & Clank. I knew it was a video game, but I'm not a gamer. It's basically for the same reason that I can't read e-books...a bit of photosensitivity. If I decide to throw caution to the wind (like I did when my sister first bought Guitar Hero so many years ago), I'm dizzy and unbalanced for at least 2 days. It's not fun and I can't get anything accomplished or even focus on anything, so I just don't do it.
That said, my oldest son used to play it and said the movie didn't look good, so he didn't go with us. My youngest son said he'd go if we went, but he didn't care one way or the other. So, it was just the three of us (hubs was working)...and a handful of other people in the theater. On release weekend. So yeah, the earth didn't move under our feet. I wasn't wowed, but it was cute. The kids both enjoyed it.
Since this is done in public, the Galactic Rangers, led by the Captain Qwark, are pretty much left without any other choice than to welcome Ratchet and Clank as their new members. So, over the course of the movie, both Ratchet and Qwark learn lessons in character, friendship, and what makes a hero.
Of course, I was taking mental notes of the food mentioned and seen in the movie, most of which came by way of Qwark. Next to popularity, food seemed to be his favorite thing. He talked about meatloaf and we saw him eating some sort of cookie or bon-bon and drinking what I'm guessing was carrot juice (from a straw out of a carrot-shaped cup or bottle). But one of my favorite parts was when he mentioned that a battle needed to end quickly so he could eat waffles.
