So, what did I do when my whole family was not well? Well, apart from getting knocked out by those damn meds, I took the chance to chill out with my son a lil bit.
I stayed away from the PC and slowed my pace in writing my novel abit, leave some of my piling work undone and picked out a few good movies to watch with my boy when we’re not well.
I know we’re supposed to be resting in bed and stuff, but then again, I take this as an opportunity given to us by God to slow down in life a little bit and learn to get all cozy even though we don’t feel comfortable. There’s no point in complaining, right? It gets you nowhere and at the end of the day, it complaining just gets you irritated.
A couple of days ago… my boy was still coughing and sneezing and having fever. I did not allow him to go to school and he was getting rather bored despite the fact that I gave him some writing exercise to do. Even my Doraemon comics doesn’t seems to amuse him. ( I know I’m a bad mum, but tell me…how many mums out there lets her kids read comic books? See, I am not THAT bad of a mum. I let my kid have fun! LOL) He doesn’t seems to have interest in anything and so I turned on the PC to look for some movies to watch online.
Puss in Boots caught my interest and I decided to watch that with my boy, and we’re got really hooked on it. *grinz* I know that it’s somewhat illegal to watch those movies online, but hey, who cares…the quality is good and I don’t even have to step out of the house to have some quality time… so why not?
Puss in Boots is highly entertaining and engaging. It’s really a good movie to watch with your little ones if you’re a fan of comedic misadventures, that is. I’m telling you, if you love Shrek movies, you will definitely love Puss in Boots.
Puss in Boots is actually the prequel to Shrek movie instalments, telling the misadventures of Puss, Humpty and Puss’s love interest/sidekick, Kitty Softpaws. The three friends were pitted against Jack and Jill, two murderous outlaws who discover an ancient power which threatens the world.
The story takes place before Puss met Shrek and Donkey, when he was a swashbuckling hero who protected the innocent.
The movie opens with Puss escaping a bounty hunter and entering a nearby town. Puss learns that two murderous outlaws, Jack and Jill have the magic beans he’s been looking for half his life, which lead to a giant’s castle holding valuable golden goose eggs. When Puss tries to take them from the two outlaws, another cat with a mask interrupts. Both fail and escaped, and Puss follows the cat back to his hideout, where they have both a dance and a sword fight. After getting hit in the head with a guitar by Puss during their fight, the other cat reveals that she is female, much to Puss’s surprise.
Puss then meets his old childhood friend Humpty Dumpty who introduces her as Kitty Softpaws, one of the best cat thieves in the world. They ask him to join them in finding the beans, planting them, and getting the golden eggs which lie at the top. Puss refuses to work with Humpty due to a past betrayal that left him falsely accused for robbery, alienating him from his hometown and adoptive mother.
So… what happens next? I’m not going to spoil it for you, but I have to say that the movie is highly entertaining and is filled with moral values. It’s something you might wanna watch with your little children this coming school holiday.
If I were to rate this movie, I’d give it a 4 out of 5 stars. I thought Shrek was much more funny and wacky in comparison to Puss in Boots.
Watch the trailer for Puss in Boots below.
If the trailer caught your interest, don’t forget to bring your kids to the cinema this coming holiday to watch this, though. It’s a different experience altogether. 😀
