I worked today for about 4 hours (2.5 in the morning and 1.5 after lunch) before heading off to Piqua for the movie. Being the paranoid type, I paid the extra buck to get my ticket online just in case. Turns out for the 4:00 showing, that wasn't needed. (The 12:45 showing earlier and the 7something showing later - probably would have been advisable.) No matter, I still paid less than $6 for the flick, which works for me.
I will admit, I do prefer it when I'm the only one in the theater (as usually happens when I see movies), but it is neat sharing a movie experience with complete strangers. And, as with all good movies, I got completely caught up in Phoenix and forgot all about the other folks until we all laughed at something together. I'm quite impressed with the movie - they were pulling from a lot of material and managed to get, I think, what was needed to make a good movie. The acting was excellent and the effects were superb. I wasn't think "Wow, neat CGI!" I was thinking "Wow!!!!"
After the flick, I talked myself into having supper at Frisch's for a Big Boy platter (onion rings & baked apples) and hot fudge cake. Let's face it, I didn't have to be too convincing. And while stopped at Walmart getting supplies, I finally found some Americone Dream ice cream. Cool, will finally get to try that flavor. But not tonight!
So, it's been a good day for me. I hope you can say the same for yourselves!
