When I first met my man, 1,000 years ago, we went to the movies every Friday night. Rain or shine. Good movie or bad. We have always loved the movies. Then all kinds of stuff happened. The kind of stuff that happens to everyone. Work. Babies. The urge to sleep when you have an extra 2 hours.
Now that our kids are giants, we are slowly getting back to those days of popcorn glory – kinda.
Long intro to start a movie review eh?
Last night, yes a Sunday night, we went to the movies! And because it was a school night, we grabbed a friend to ease the guilt.
I give it 2 thumbs up! Are those dudes still around?
Smart, funny, and nerve-racking. Will they make it/won’t they make it.
The CIA runs a covert operation pretending to be a movie production company to rescue 6 trapped diplomats in 1979.
Ben Affleck. Brian Cranston. Alan Arkin. How can you go wrong? Ben had me at The Town, and ofcourse Cranston can do no wrong for me post Breaking Bad – and Arkin. He was one of my favorite things about The Slums of Beverly Hills and Little Miss Sunshine.
I won’t go into all the details that make the movie so clever and entertaining – you can google that. But I loved it and I think you all should see it. The end.
(the title of the post refers to a funny line Arkin says when someone presses him to explain the title of the movie. Old men saying swear words. Hysterical)
