So… much… popcorn.
That’s how I feel with all the movies I watched this week. It all started Tuesday when I saw The Hunger Games for the second time, this time with Susie and Sara from dance. We didn’t have class because it was spring break. Really, spring break as an adult seems like such an odd concept. I don’t get to do the extracurricular activities that I enjoy, but I still have to work. What a joke.
We had dinner and drinks at Malone’s before the movie. I ordered fish and chips.
The Hunger Games was just as enjoyable the second time through. I cried at all the same places, which my cold, black heart of stone could once again not comprehend. Good thing the drunk guy in the row behind us kept offering comic relief (“Oh, nooooo”).
On Thursday BRK and I had dinner and a movie as well. We went to Stella’s Fish Cafe because I had a LivingSocial deal that was expiring on the 11th. I had fish and chips and drinks. Is there a pattern developing?
Stella isn’t necessarily an expensive restaurant, but add in 4 drinks and a crab artichoke dip, and before you know it, you’ve spent damn near $100. It was good though. I think I speak for both BRK and I when I say we’d definitely do it again. We also had good dinner conversation and made travel plans. Summer 2013: Paris, here we come.
The awesomeness of dinner made up for the lackluster movie. I’m sure we’ve seen a few terrible films on culture night that I can’t quite remember, but this one might take the cake. The premise had potential, but it was poorly executed. It was called Apart. You can Google it if you’re interested. Or not.
Tonight Nick and I decided to see an impromptu movie while we were in Maple Grove shopping for fabric (for him not me). Fortunately there’s an AMC Stubs app for iPhone because my rewards card was at home. We ended up seeing American Reunion, and it was pretty awesome. I loved American Pie when it came out. I felt like I could relate because they were Class of ’99, and hey! So was I. Same goes for this movie. I haven’t felt like I’ve gotten any older in the past 13 years, even though I know I have. It was interesting to see that portrayed on the big screen with the same characters I related to so many years ago. *tear*
Okay, enough touchy feely crap for one night.
