The Kids React to Back to the Future

We’ve been introducing the kids to some of our movies from childhood. My favorite one from childhood was Back to the Future. It is still one of my most favorite movies ever and I can watch it over and over and see more that I’ve missed. This time around we watched the movie with the kids. Both of the kids were into the movie. They watched attentively and Eva was having giggle fits at certain parts. She laughed every time Doc Brown was on the screen. He did steal many scenes with his mannerisms and facial expressions.

Andrew started out pretty well but quickly succumbed to the time of day, we started the movie at 7pm. The kids usually start getting ready to sleep not long after 7pm. Andrew made it up until Marty actually went back to 1955. Then he was down for the count. Eva remained awake throughout the movie and I could tell that she really enjoyed it. There was only one part that Eva didn’t like and that was when Doc Brown is shot by the Libyans. She got through it and enjoyed the rest of the movie. I wonder if she knew that he wouldn’t remain dead?

Eva also had some interesting questions about time travel and also the time space continuum. Actually, Andrew asked me about the time space continuum right before the movie. He learned that term on Alvin and the Chipmunks. Crazy. I made a little video of the kids and their questions and reactions to the movie.

On Aug. 25, a sleek white-and-red Nintendo 2DS system with the New Super Mario Bros. 2 game pre-installed is hitting store shelves at a suggested retail price of only $79.99.

Before getting my Nintendo Switch my go to portable video game entertainment system was the Nintendo 3DS. I have a 3DS XL and a New 3DS XL. I also have a bunch of fun games. A few years ago I went to a special event for Activision and got a ton of great Nintendo 3DS games. I didn’t have a 3DS at that time so I went and picked one up for the family. I was glad that I did. This system is so much fun and great for the whole family to enjoy. It is quite a difference from when I was growing up and I had a Gameboy. I thought that was the height of portable game technology. Things certainly have changed and they are only getting better.

Nintendo has just announced something new and awesome for the family to enjoy. New 3DS games and a great new Nintendo 2DS bundle. The bundle comes with New Super Mario Bros 2 and the 2DS will have a special red and white color scheme. There are now so many options for families to choose from to have affordable handheld gaming to enjoy. Also, each version of the 3DS and 2DS can run the entire library of 3DS games. There are so many to choose from. I’m looking ahead to the fall when a new Metroid one comes out. I have details on that and all the latest bundles and offerings below.
