Last night after getting some super yummy frozen yogurt with our friends, boyfriend and I were in the mood to watch a movie. So the 4 of us raided Hollywood Video. We walked in the door with the intention of renting Seven Pounds. We walked out the door with Bolt. Quite a leap, huh? Boyfriend decided he didn't want to see a depressing movie and at the end of the new releases isle is the kiddie section, and there was Bolt, sitting there just waiting to be watched. I was down for watching it, mainly because my favorite songwriter, Jenny Lewis, was the assistant director for the movie, and her song is featured in it as well. You remember Jenny, don't you? In the 80s she was the cute redheaded Fred Savage love interest in The Wizard. She was Shelley Long's redheaded daughter, Hannah, in Troop Beverly Hills. Now known as the front woman of Rilo Kiley, backup signer for The Postal Service, and awesome solo artist. You know her, right? Anyway, I was dreading having to hear Miley's voice, and even more fearful that there would be a Miley song, but luckily that was saved for the credits. And surprisingly, Miley's voice didn't annoy me too much. It was good, I liked it. I got a little choked up toward the end, which was mainly due to the opening scene of Bolt as a puppy. Way to go Disney, you got my heart strings again!
Did I mention that it's raining today? A lot? And that I LOVE it?! I love it so much that I've decided to open the window and not turn the radio on, just so I can listen to it.
