    Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark : Netflix DVD @ home on the sofa - I remembered reading the creepy books as a kid, so I was willing to give it a shot. The concept was decent, and the stories as they came to life had that uber creepy visual (like the books). It was worth watching at home...might have been a smidge better with wine.

    Doctor Sleep : Regal Cinemas w/ my old horror movie group. Way back when there was a small group of us that would get together after work to go watch scary movies then go out for dinner/drinks. We disbanded when we all got married/had kids/changed jobs, but we got the gang back together yesterday for a super fun movie!!! This is one of the few times where I felt that the movie ending was better than the book. The movie did follow the book fairly well (disclaimer: it has been a while since I read the book) except for the ending which tied everything up nicely. I would wholeheartedly recommend watching this one, and it was worth the $$$ to see it in the theatre for the surround sound and HUGE picture.

    We definitely agreed now that everybody's kiddos are at an age where they can be alone on a weekend afternoon that it's time to get the gang back together. I think the next movie on out "to-do" list is The Grudge coming out in January. We saw the one that came out in 2004 together and drove each other nuts by making that sound on the other side of the cubicle walls when we walked by.

    I saw the John Cena is a fireman movie. 10 out of 10 stars.
    I miss Disney making mindless drivel like this.

    Saw Charlie's Angels last night. I don't know what I think about this one. It was a movie is the best description I can give.

    Toy Story 4 - Netflix DVD - I don't know what it is about Disney/Pixar movies, but I can't help but get teary at random spots (at least I didn't blubber like I did in TS3). I can't even say that I really liked the movie all that much. Maybe it's turning into a nostalgia type of thing because I saw the first TS in the theatre with my dad. It wasn't a bad movie, but they should've stopped at TS3.

    I had a similar reaction to that movie as well. A lot of Disney films these days are just unnecessary see: Lion King, Aladdin, Lady and the Tramp.
    Why try to improve upon perfection?

    Silly, sappy but still enjoyable if you like schmaltzy Christmas movies!

    Big movie weekend for me :D
    Midway : Regal Cinema with Red Vines and a Icee. I'm generally not a big fan of war movies because I tend to be upset about the lives that are lost and how it is all depicted, but they did a brilliant job with this film. I was on the edge of my seat during many scenes (even though we all know how it played out in the end). Great cast, incredible director (Roland Emmerich), and be sure to stay through the first part of the credits to find out how things played out after Midway for the real life people involved.
    Klaus : Netflix on the sofa Thanksgiving morning - I don't usually break into the Christmas movies on Thanksgiving, but I was browsing and came up with this one. It's a different spin on how Santa came to be. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. It was done by the Illumination group that did Despicable Me/Minions. Lots of laughs and fun to be had. I highly recommend this one.
    Shazam! : HBO (or something like that) - I couldn't pick ALL winners, but it still wasn't awful. I didn't mind watching Zachary Levi in that nice red CGI suit at all...kinda' disappointed he didn't do a smolder or two though. *winks* If you can watch it for free I say go for it. It didn't feel like a waste of time that I wasn't going to get back, but I did feel that I could've been doing something a little more productive.

    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
    Quentin Tarantino flick with Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio with several other notable cast. All the acting was exceptional. For the filming in LA, I had assumed that they used some CGI to turn the clock back to 1969, but found that they did massive makeovers. I also better understand that the only similarity between me and Brad Pitt is that we are almost the same age...

    Ford Vs. Ferrari : Regal Cinemas w/ a Coke icee. I highly enjoyed this movie!! The casting was excellent, and I had the full gambit of emotions throughout the movie. I would buy this one when it comes out.

    The Ref : At home on the sofa w/ Kricket. I have to say this is one of my favorite holiday movies (along w/ Christmas with the Kranks). Denis Leary is hilarious, and besides who wouldn't want to tie up that one family member that nobody really agrees with?

    Home Alone....Yeah that one. My son wanted to watch it again. It has some humorous moments and even a touching moment at the end with his elderly neighbor reuniting with his family. But, I am always bothered by how incredibly rude, nasty, and downright abusive 'Kevin's' family is toward him in the beginning. It almost spoils the entire picture for me.

    yeah, me too

    In keeping with the season; we watched The Santa Clause 2. Quite predictable but it was a good choice after a day of shopping with my daughter and granddaughter. I was too tired to have to think.

    A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, Sunday afternoon.

    Tom Hanks as Fred Rogers, in a story based on how a series of interviews with Rogers turned into the life-changing 1998 Esquire cover story, "Can you say . . . HERO?"

    Not at all what I'd expected (it had me scratching my head up to the point where journalist Lloyd Vogel [Matthew Rhys as a fictionalized version of journalist Tom Junod] is given the assignment to interview Rogers), but very good, and a very compelling story.

    Bookended with Hanks re-enacting the way Rogers customarily opened and closed Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. Scene transitions were done with intentionally-obvious model shots, mimicking the scene transitions from the show (not as a parody, but shamelessly nonetheless). It also made frequent use of reverse-letterboxing to 4:3. And at the end of the film, at the credits, they ran a brief clip of the real Fred Rogers, from a real episode of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.

    By all accounts, Rogers' friends and family were very happy with the movie, just as he, his friends, and his family had been very happy, back in 1998, with the Esquire article that had inspired it.
