We watched it all the way through because we kept hoping it would go somewhere or have some substance.

It starred Jeremy Irons and Meryl Streep when they were YOUNG, oh boy, were they young!
I'm with you on "The F L's Woman".

Yes, I enjoyed that. Not a great film but quite entertaining.

Going to see the new Woody Allan film on Monday - "Cafe Society". Watch this space.

I love our old-fashioned, proper cinema. It knocks spots off the big modern multi-plexes. An old-fashioned cinema with lots of leg room and much of the original art deco decoration which has been carefully cared for by the private owners of the cinema (only 2 owners in the 60 years I've been going to it) and ice creams in the interval brought round by the usherettes (yes, we have those too).

Last movie I saw was maze runner, a totally OK movie, seen better but I enjoyed it.

Sadly I cant sit in cinemas anymore since I cant sit still for a whole movie, so it me in the couch at home.

You can list any movie you have watched, doesn't have to be seen in the theater.

We went and saw Sully today.

Another Tom Hanks winner! "The miracle on the Hudson" was perfectly depicted and beautifully directed by Clint Eastwood. It's a nail biter with the details, and we were both on the edge of our seats. Not to be missed!!
If you can see it in a theater, it's well worth the full "impact".

Kay....funny you should mention that. I was going to go see Sully at the matinee today, but decided I'd grill instead and go see it tomorrow. Then daughter called and asked me if I'd watch Tyler tomorrow so she and hubby could have a lunch and movie date, of course I said yes.

I won't be able to see it until next weekend, because Tyler comes over after school. Been really looking forward to it, and glad to hear it got a good review from you. I'm a big Tom Hanks fan and this one looks like a good one!

You're going to love Sully Cheryl. There's so much more to the story to keep it even more intriguing than the story we all saw on the news. It was so very well done and moving, it was quite emotional. What a pleasure to see a feel good flick!

As a pilot, and someone who had Airbus as a customer when I was working, the film was really great! I really recommend it!

I knew I should've gone to see it today while I had the chance! Looking forward to it. There haven't been any good films at the theater in quite some time. (IMO)
