A Weekend of Movies

Happy Summer Break, y’all!!

I kicked off my vacation in style by taking in a movie on Saturday.

I had read the book way back in November and was thrilled when I learned that it was coming to the big screen.

The Mr., however, was not exactly chomping at the bit at the idea of seeing a “girlie” movie, so I had to make a decision:  wait for it to come out as a rental or go by myself.

Y’all, I have NEVER gone to the movie theater by myself.  Ever.

I am an introvert, but I’m also so socially awkward that I like to have one friend with me when I’m out like this.  I checked with one gal, but she had to work, so I was on my own.  I decided to go on Saturday because the Mr. had to work.

When I got to the theater, the auditorium was empty, except for two teenagers (you can’t see them because they are sitting in the top row).

Everyone was seeing other movies such as Wonder Woman and Pirates of the Caribbean.

It was nice to be able to put up my ankle without bothering anyone . . .

For the record, I put my phone away after taking this quick photo.

The movie was cute.  It’s not a movie I would typically pay to watch, but I had a vested interest after reading the book.  It stayed pretty true to the plot in the book, which was a relief to me.  I’m a purist and have high expectations for books that are made into movies.

On Sunday, the Mr. and I went to church and then, after a short break at home, went out to see Wonder Woman.

We had seen previews a couple of weeks ago, so I was looking forward to its release in theaters.





The entire story line flows.  The characters are perfectly cast.  The action is powerful.

There’s humor, there’s love, and it’s pretty clean . . . no cursing or nudity.

This is a movie that I’ll have to buy when it comes out on DVD; I’ll actually be able to show it in my classroom as a reward at the end of a tough semester.

I highly recommend this movie!
