    Good ones. Drive was good. I want to see Knives Out. Parts of Home Alone were funny but I have a problem with the whole leaving the kid behind concept. I just don’t believe that’s possible.

    We saw Richard Jewell which we loved as well as Elf (a favorite repeat), Home Alone 1&2 (repeats fun) and Green Book(repeat) excellent as well.

    We will see Knives Out next week!

    Home Alone – We never miss watching yearly

    Klaus – Nicely done. I even cried.

    A note on Knives Out. We live in Nashville and ticket prices are astronomical at every theater except for the one AMC Theatre we frequent. Matinees are only a bit over $6. Well, they decided not to play Knives Out for some reason. A movie I couldn’t wait to see! I didn’t go see it anywhere else because 1) the prices 2) I hate reserved seating and 3) I HATE those recliners! If I want to fall asleep while watching a movie (which is pretty much inevitable if you get THAT comfortable watching a movie), I’ll do it at home. Anyway, I still haven’t seen it. Waiting now for DVD or streaming. Sorry for the rant. lol Just don’t understand my theater’s reasoning. I even complained, for all the good it will do in the future.

      I love the recliners, but hate that you have to reserve them in advance. The recliners have enabled up to take Gage to the movies more, which is a plus! Sounds like your fave theater lost out on a lot of money.
      I was pleasantly surprised how much I loved Klaus.
