I went to see three movies this summer. At actual theatres. That’s a record for me. And I plan to keep going to the movies on a regular basis. It was a lot of fun!
The other week I went to see Crazy Rich Asians. It was so good. Beautiful people, lavish locations, and some seriously delicious looking food. It’s based on the book of the same name by Kevin Kwan who’s intention was to “introduce a contemporary Asia to North American audience.” Mission accomplished. It was a delight.
I also took my mother and mother-n-law to see the Book Club. Four friends of a certain age decide to read Fifty Shades of Grey. It was cute and we had a couple of good laughs. But I have to say, Candice Bergen stole the show. She was had the funniest and most interesting character. But it was refreshing to see a movie centered around the sexual escapades of older women. Because, heck yeah!!!
I also went to see Adrift, which was terrifying as I’m not a fan of sail boats, deep water, or hurricanes. It is loosely based on the true story of a couple of experienced sailors agree to sail a boat from Tahiti to San Diego. They encounter one of the worst recorded hurricanes in recent history and are set adrift. The story is absolutely amazing!
Until next time…
What movies did you see this summer? What movies are you looking forward to?
