Sundays around here are generally for football. But. The Pats had a bye week and that left us with a free Sunday. In November. You know what that means?
Yes, my friends, movie season is here. The time to go the theater and see the movies that are likely to be nominated for an award. Kym sent me this list and I think it’s a good place to start. And that’s why, yesterday, Dale and I went to see The Girl on the Train.
It was good. Not great. But good. And here’s the thing (you know what I’m going to say, right?) The book was better. Way better. And Dale, who hadn’t read the book, was a little bit lost during some parts. It all came together during the last 3rd of the movie but it was a little messy getting to that point. Emily Blunt, though, was fantastic, and totally deserves an Oscar nomination.
After the movie we headed to a new-ish restaurant and had a drink (or two) and discussed the movie. It’s one of my favorite parts about going to the movies with Dale – that after part where we talk about what we watched and what we thought and what else we want to go see.
Movie season. It’s one of the things that helps me embrace shorter days and colder nights.
