I gave myself a treat last night and went to the movies. I forgot that going on Saturday night which meant that they jack up the prices on Saturday night so it cost damn near $20 -- and another $5 for popcorn and pop. You can bet they won't be seeing me on a Saturday night ahain for a longgggggg time.
The first film I saw was "Olympus Has Fallen" -- an action adventure with Morgan Freeman and Gerard Butler -- good stuff, right? It was too noisy and violent for me. I swear these movies were designed for people with severe behavior/attention disorders. AND I won't even talk about the previews -- I swear they go on forever, are wayyyy too loud, and could cause seizures with the weird special effects.
The second feature was 42 (the real reason I went the movies) - the story of Jackie Robinson's (Chadwick Boseman) ordeal as the first black player in the Majors. Harrison Ford (looking really old) co-starred as Branch Rickey -- the owner of the Brooklyn Dodgers who gave Robinson a contract despite advice to the contrary.
Here's the trailer . . .
