On Monday October 27th I went to see The Best of Me which is a Nicholas Sparks movie. I have not read the book. I thought this movie was very good and I am definitely a fan of James Marsden's. This movie surprised me compared to other Nicholas Sparks movies. Not quite the ending I expected!
"A pair of former high school sweethearts reunite after many years when they return to visit their small hometown."
On Tuesday October 28th I went to see St. Vincent which I really liked. I am a huge fan of Bill Murray's so I wasn't going to miss this one. This was a down to earth movie which was very moving and it also brought me to tears.
"A young boy whose parents have just divorced finds an unlikely friend and mentor in the misanthropic, bawdy, hedonistic war veteran who lives next door."
That same day I went to see Fury in the evening with Mark. I thought this movie was excellent. I am not a fan of war but this movie was done very well. I liked the way it followed the men who were in one tank.
"April, 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy commands a Sherman tank and his five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Out-numbered, out-gunned, and with a rookie soldier thrust into their platoon, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany."
The next day Mark and I went to see John Wick with Keanu Reeves. This movie was a blood bath but I have to admit I liked it. Lot's of action going on in this movie.
"An ex-hitman comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him."
I wasn't sure what to expect when we went to see Interstellar but we really liked it. It does take place in the future and the space travel was mind blowing to me. Definitely worth seeing! It is a long movie so be prepared if you go to the show to see it!
"A team of explorers travel through a wormhole in an attempt to find a potentially habitable planet that will sustain humanity."
What can I say about Birdman??? Mark and I went to see this one last Wednesday evening and I have to say that we both liked it. Excellent cast and awesome performances! It doesn't follow along like most movies. It is definitely an award winning theatrical piece in my opinion.
"A washed-up actor who once played an iconic superhero must overcome his ego and family trouble as he mounts a Broadway play in a bid to reclaim his past glory."
I went to see A Merry Friggin' Christmas mainly because it was one of Robin Williams last movies and they were having a special showing at the theater. It actually comes out on DVD this month. It was entertaining and I enjoyed it but it was just okay!
"Boyd Mitchler and his family must spend Christmas with his estranged family of misfits. Upon realizing that he left all his son's gifts at home, he hits the road with his dad in an attempt to make the 8-hour round trip before sunrise."
I know it may seem crazy to see so many movies in a few short days but Mark travels often and sometimes movies don't stay long at the show so we take advantage of that fact. Also one of our local movie theaters has $5. Tuesday's and $4. Wednesday's for seniors. Not all of the hottest releases come to this theater but when they do you will find us there!
