Empire of the Sun

Empire of the Sun is on of my favorite movies. My husband rolls his eyes at me when I want to watch it. Admittedly it is long.

This last weekend I let Mica watch it with me. I was wondering if he would actually stick it out because of the length of the movie. He did. He always gets really excited about Steven Spielberg movies. The boy has read 2 documentaries on the guy. He knows more about him than I do. He also likes history.

I told Mica that the boy in the movie played one of the many Batman's. Christian Bale is a great actor. I couldn't believe how much weight he forced himself to loose in The Machinist!

We were watching it and Mica said, "Hey Mom I think that's Ben Stiller." I had to look it up to see if he was right. Sure enough he was. A young Ben Stiller. That kid amazes me sometimes! He knows so much about classic movies, music and for some odd reason presidents for his age!

I asked Mica if he liked the movie? He most certainly did. I think it helped that the kid in the movie (Jamie played by Christian Bale) was about his age.

Viewers have you seen Empire of the Sun? What's one of your favorite movies?

I've never seen this movie. Maybe I'll give it a watch. I like historical kinda movies. I couldn't say what my favorite movie is. My sort of fall back response to this is Wedding Crashers because honestly I do love that movie in its cheesiness, but I wouldn't say it's my fave. I like lots of them! Right now, we're watching Anastasia, which is pretty good.
