On Labor Day Mark and I went to see A Walk in the Woods. We both thought this movie was very entertaining. Of course it was nice to see the struggles that many of us know as we age. Can you imagine backpacking the Appalachian Trail. This is definitely a movie to see. The two are great together.
From my research it appears that Bill Bryson, who wrote this book, did this walk when he would have been 45 years old. Obviously Robert Redford and Nick Nolte are older than that!
"After spending two decades in England, Bill Bryson returns to the U.S., where he decides the best way to connect with his homeland is to hike the Appalachian Trail with one of his oldest friends."
I went to see Before We Go last Wednesday. It looked like it would be entertaining and it was! The two actors were fun together and they take you on an interesting adventure. This movie is what I call a dialogue movie.
"Two strangers stuck in Manhattan for the night grow into each other's most trusted confidants when an evening of unexpected adventure forces them to confront their fears and take control of their lives."
Last Friday I went to see two movies. I love when show times can work out that way. Honestly it doesn't happen that often. When I went up to the ticket booth I asked the ending time of Learning to Drive which was the first movie I saw.
Its end time was 1:15 which is when Maze Runner was starting so I knew I could do it because you almost always have 15 minutes of coming attractions. So I purchased both of my tickets. It's nice when movies you want to see are at the theater that has $5.00 senior tickets for all movies all day everyday!
Just look at the actors in this movie. This movie was very entertaining, I really enjoyed their connection and how two perfect strangers can have an impact on each other's lives. Actually I have a favorite movie with Patricia Clarkson that I watch often called The Station Agent. People coming together and bringing each other support are my favorite type of movies.
"As her marriage dissolves, a Manhattan writer takes driving lessons from a Sikh instructor with marriage troubles of his own. In each other's company they find the courage to get back on the road and the strength to take the wheel."
So next up was Maze Runner : The Scorch Trials. I enjoyed the first one so I knew I wanted to see the second installment. I know there have been mixed reviews on this movie but I loved it. Probably even more than the first one. This one has no stop action and I'm so glad I saw it!
"After having escaped the Maze, the Gladers now face a new set of challenges on the open roads of a desolate landscape filled with unimaginable obstacles."
What movie have you seen lately?
Have a wonderful week....
