Therefore, I saw the damned thing on the silver screen. Back in those days, Burton hadnโ€™t direct any full length feature yet and, allegedly, it was after watching 'Frankenwe... read more

Movies the giraffe watched in 2017: May (28 movies items)

"Re-watch - May 21st The kiddo wanted to watch Pee-wee's Playhouse, but I wanted to watch a movie with her, not TV, so we compromised by revisiting Big Adventure which she'd mostly forgotten but totally enjoyed. Once again she found Large Marge funny, not scary at all, which amuses me. She also asked if we could have a house like Pee-wee's which I'm mostly fine with. I just don't want to have to set up the breakfast machine."
