With two filmmakers for parents, I guess it is inevitable that our kids like movies. But none of the boys gets into a film as much as Colin. When act three begins in a movie and you can start to feel things coming to their conclusion, Colin slowly gets into a crouch on the sofa, trying hard not to break the rules and stand on the couch, but unable to contain his excitement. As the excitement in the story builds, he starts to bounce, a huge grin breaks across his face, an uncontrollable giggle emits from deep inside. When the hero finally triumphs, he can't help himself - he jumps up to a stand on the couch, pumps his fist in the air, and yells in excitement. It's so fun to watch.
