Recent DVD viewing.

Bought Kung Fu Panda earlier this week on a whim, having missed it in theaters (a recurring theme with regard to movies and parenthood). I figured Addy might get a kick (HA!) out of it. I’m secure enough in my masculinity that I can say I thought it was a lot of fun. There were several sequences that had me laughing out loud. Well worth the coin I plunked down for it.

So far, I’ve been 3 for 3 on recent DVD purchases for movies we missed over the summer (Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk being the other two).

In other DVD news, I finally got to sit down and reward myself with a screening of the L.A. Confidential special edition DVD, which along with the third season of The Unit I’d forced myself not to dork with until after I’d finished the Vanguard novel. Well worth the wait. This is one of my favorite movies, and I’d bypassed the bare-bones edition that came out a few years ago (opting to hold onto my LaserDisc version).

Waiting in the wings: Heat, which I picked up for a steal, and Futurama: Bender’s Game, if only so I can hear George Takei say, “Way to kill the franchise, Bakula!”
