Got My Two Movies in For 2016. Until Next Year.

And with the CNY continued traditions, the day after Christmas, I ventured off to an actual movie theater to see a real, live movie. I know. I know. On Christmas I watched Deadpool with Mike and Chitunga, and yesterday, Casey, Dave and I took Dylan, Chitunga, Shaun, Jacob, Abu and Mustapha to see Rogue I.

I got my fix in (and my Chase bank account is glad I don't do that more often).

Great film. Worth the hype. Well, I didn't know there was hype, but when I saw the trailer I was rather "meh" about seeing it. I'm glad I did, though - it was far superior than I expected and I felt like a kid again. It's awesome the way the story lines criss cross and lead into the later stories. Of course, we have to love that the effects are better now than they were back in the day. Totally believable.

Now, I can't wait for the next movie to come out (this is what happens when the Lord of the Rings and  Harry Potter series ended. It was pretty dry until they picked up on Star Wars and now I have a reason to geek out again.

Ah, but we lost an entire day. We started at 1:40, but they oversold the show so we didn't get good seats and demanded an exchange for a later showing, which turned into the 3D version (which is stupid because nothing was in in 3D).

But I'm a happy boy again - like childhood happy when my mom made me an R2D2 lamp for my room. I told Dylan, this is the 3rd time they've brought these movies out and I can't remember if I am 8 years old or in my 40s. Just keep the joy coming.

And with that, it's time to set out for a Tuesday.
