Now that the kids are older, the old man and I manage to get out more. Sometimes we go watch a sporting event, which is what he likes to do. (Okay, so he watches whatever event and I sit there with my notebook or laptop and work while we take our time eating.) But sometimes, we go see a movie, I had gotten to the point that I didn’t care to go to the theater, because it’s more comfortable to wait until whatever it is comes out on disc and watch it at home… Until recently. A few months ago one of the theaters in town remodeled so that all 7 of their screens now have recliners. These, I love. Now I’m happy to get out of the house for a bit and go see a movie.
My first choice recently? King Arthur, Legend of the Sword.
Despite what my children and the old man think, I didn’t choose the movie because it stars Charlie Hunnam. Though he was a very nice bonus. The story was good, it was a different twist on the old King Arthur tale that kept me interested the whole time and didn’t totally disregard the original. I really enjoyed it, not only for the eye candy but that was good too. The action was good, the twist in the tale was good, it even kept you guessing just a little because you didn’t know what they’d changed and how that fit into the story.
Overall? I’m waiting for a sequel!
