ParaNorman Goodie Bag

Connie and I had the opportunity to go see ParaNorman twice. The first time we went we brought along our niece and nephew who enjoyed the movie immensely. We had a lot of fun filling out the surveys which would help improve the movie if it needed improving. Everyone who came to the event received a pack of Silly Bandz which the kids went nuts over.

This is a bit off topic but how does someone pitch an idea like that. I imagine it probably went something like this, "Hey guys I've got an amazing idea! We're going to make elastic bands... wait for it... in the shape of random animals and shapes!" The whole room erupts in applause and you can see a guy in the corner mouthing the words F#!kin Genius with a tear coming out of his eye.

Back on topic, the second time we went to watch ParaNorman I was wondering if the movie had changed in anyway from our feedback. This time we brought an older crowd in the 50s-60s and it turned out to be a hit with the older crowd as well. I wasn't able to tell any noticeable edits in the movie in regards to scenes being added or subtracted. So the overall experience, the first time around, must have been really good.

On our second screening Connie won a bag with an art book about the making of ParaNorman and a pair of zombie slippers from the movie. The movie comes out August 17th which is this week. I'd definitely recommend it as a good watch especially for children. It touches on an important topic that most children deal with at one point in time while growing up.
