Movie time

Our local shopping centre is in a permanent state of expansion.  They finish one extension, and then start on the next. Or that’s what it feels like, anyway.

They recently opened a new section and hooray,  our movie theatre is back.

Naturally, we tried it out.

Nice theatre. Reclining seats and all.  Everything’s classy and new and beautiful right now.

Expensive too.  They charge more for the nice seats.

Going to the movies used to be something you could afford. Not any more. Or not often.  Luckily for us, our phone company gives us discount tickets, so it could be worse.

What did we see?

Inferno

The movie complex had just opened.  There were five of us in the theatre.

Sherylyn has read the Dan Brown books, I haven’t, but I have seen the movies. And enjoyed every single one of them.

I enjoyed Inferno, too.  It had some interesting plot twists, some I didn’t see coming.

Adrenaline packed fun.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

Tom Cruise has been in a lot of interesting movies over the last few years.  I loved both Oblivion and Edge of Tomorrow.

Tom Cruise often plays ‘out of character’.  I don’t know how many of you remember the fuss when he signed on to play Vampire Lestat, because Lestat is blonde.

Jack Reacher is blonde too. And he’s 6’ 5” (looks a lot like Lee Child, in fact). He’s nothing like Tom Cruise (a foot shorter, brown hair).  But I think Cruise does a good job of Reacher, even without matching physically.

This was another movie I enjoyed. Again, lots of action, although the story was pretty straightforward.
