Proud Geek Papa

We took the kids to see the Incredibles, which is, well, incredible. And somewhere in the midst of the 10 trailers they showed for mostly crap-looking stuff (except the next Pixar movie), they just flash up there blue letters on a black background. You know, the ones that say "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..." and Nate sits up straight in his seat, knowing what was coming.

And, I have to say, as shitty as the last two Star Wars movies have been, this is a pretty damn good trailer. They've actually managed to make Darth Vader look scary, so that's way cool. And my five year old was totally into it. We've watched the original trilogy on DVD together and he's ready for more.

It's not like I need more common ground to share with him, but to see him get excited about something that so totally engrossed me at the age of 13 (when Star Wars came out), well, it was cool.
