We loved this movie, Cheryl. Duvall did a wonderful job.

We watched World War Z a couple of nights ago. Made ourselves watch the whole thing. In the end, it was a huge waste of time. To us, it was stupid beyond belief. Wonder why, except for $$, Brad Pitt even was part of it.

Yay, another foodie movie is coming out! Has anyone seen the ads and trailer for "Burnt"? This looks good, I'll be watching for it. Starring Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller in the comedy/drama, and is set to be released October 30th.

"....Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) is a Chef who destroyed his career with drugs and diva behavior. He cleans up and returns to London, determined to redeem himself by spearheading a top restaurant that can gain three Michelin stars."

Burnt (2015) - IMDb

Yes he is, Kay. Those eyes!

I'm looking forward to seeing it. I love going to the matinee during the week when everyone is at work and school. When I went to see The Intern last month, there were only 4 other people in the theater besides me.

Just another thought..after all these years and home technology, I've never seen a movie at home, that has the same impact as seeing the same movie in a theater.

It could be why they are still open.
I love going to the movies.

I agree...partially.

All my life, the only movies I go to the theatre to see are ones that I feel will lose a significant part of their impact by being viewed on the "small screen."

A good example would be the Star Wars or Harry Potter series of films. There's really no way one could appreciate the impact of all the special effects. Likewise, I can't imagine seeing Gone with the Wind on anything other than a movie screen. I have seen it via DVD but, somehow, the burning of Atlanta just isn't the same.

Thrillers/mysteries, comedies and romance and other genre I can't bring to mind right now are, for me, generally left to see until they are available on disk or through our satellite provider.

Even though Buck was in the movie business, I've never been much of a movieaholic. I just glanced over at our personal collection and we own 6 movies. With very few exceptions, once I've seen it, I'm done with it, but that's just me. I understand there are those folks who thoroughly enjoy seeing a film repeatedly and can recite dialogue verbatim. That's just not how I operate.

The Hundred-Foot Journey was a film that, intuitively, I felt needed to be seen in the theatre and I was right, if for no other reason than to enjoy the French countryside. I'm sure I miss other delightful parts of movies because the greatest portion are viewed on our TV and my intuition isn't always at 100%, but we're okay with it.

Rats. Now I want to go to see a movie. Better get out the popcorn popper first.
