Aladdin, X-Men, Spiderman, Child's Play, any more?
May 10, 2019
Detective Pikachu, X-Men, Hobbs and Shaw, Spider-Man, Godzilla: King of Monsters, and Toy Story 4.
I'm hoping my nephew will want to see Godzilla so i can take him
Yay! Sounds like fun! I’m going with a bunch of my good friends and it’ll be a blast. Can’t wait!
I forgot about Godzilla.

I don’t even know what movies come out this summer.
DH and I do sometimes go to a matinee in the summer, but not often. We might go more if we had a theater nearby. The closest is 25 miles, in the next county.

Yeah, I only know about movies coming out if I pass by the theater and see them (and even seeing their names I don't know what they are most times LOL). I don't watch tv so I don't see ads for them. In the summer I am more likely to go to the drive in than a regular theater and there I get to see a double feature!
I thought Detective Pikachu was cute and fun, if not necessarily good.
I'm excited for Spiderman, Late Night, Judy. I'm sure there are others I'll see with my husband.
Hobbs & Shaw
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
John Wick 3
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark
The Dead Don't Die
I took my mom to see Poms yesterday. It was funny.
Jun 11, 2019
I’ve now see Detective Pikachu, Godzilla, and X-Men: Dark Phoenix. Next on the list are Secret Life of Pets 2 and Aladdin.
Jun 12, 2019
Dark Phoenix was 4.5 stars, don't see why it warrants the subpar reviews from the movie experts. I really hope more X-Men are on the way before the New Mutants!
With those snack prices, the theaters will make sure to make their money. That popcorn is the bomb though.
I went and saw Rocketman today, and it was good. Looking forward to watching Yesterday later this summer.

That's why I love going to the drive-in. We bring snacks and sometimes even dinner. The ticket prices and snack prices have really gone through the roof.

Add Anna to that. Dang what a good movie.
What does everyone's normal movie trip cost? Mine usually runs $30-$35.
I haven't been to a movie theater in years. Netflix and Amazon are all I need.
Go see a new movie in the cinema with friends. It’ll be fun!
I only buy the ticket. The snacks are overpriced and I sneak in cheaper, better alternatives, lol!
Update: I saw The Secret Life of Pets: 2 and Aladdin and will see Anna, Toy Story 4, Men in Black: International, Shaft, and John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum. Thanks!
I am going to see Anna tonight and just bought my ticket on Flixster!
I've had students to tell me this same thing. I seriously thought about that today. The same $5 pack of Snickers is only $2 at a dollar store.
I've read that theaters add Flavacol to their popcorn. Could I just add this to microwave popcorn and get a similar taste? Also, how can I replicate the Coca Cola Icee???
I don’t recommend eating movie popcorn because it is extremely unhealthy. It contains a butter substitute called butter fat. I’m not joking you, they literally melt fat and pour it over the popcorn. That is why it tastes so good because we’ve evolved to covet the taste of fat...
MIB and Shaft are just overplayed imo. I might still go and see Aladdin.
Jun 22, 2019
I can scratch Anna off the list. It was good. Now, on to the “overplayed” MIB and Shaft, haha! And I can’t forget Toy Story 4!
I don't, for a number of reasons. The theater itself makes most of its money off of the snacks they sell. That's why there's such a mark up. A very large percentage of the admission price goes back to the studio (as it should - it's how the artists who create the movie get paid.) But, in order to keep the lights on at the theater and be able to hire people to operate projectors, clean, and sell concessions, they have to charge for the only other thing they control: the snacks. It's part of why so many theaters are switching to high-end items: wine, beer, etc.
We do pay for a monthly movie club where we get one free ticket a month and a discount on concessions.
I can’t sit still long enough to watch a movie, plus the action on a large screen aggravates my vertigo, so we only watch movies at home. Plenty of snacks!

'Yesterday' looks like it will be amusing
Jun 29, 2019
I saw Toy Story 4 yesterday. It was good and had a sad/happy ending. You see any recently?
Jun 30, 2019
I usually see movies at a faster pace than I am now, so only saw Ma & John Wick 3 so far at this point.
I also want to add the next Annabelle, It: Ch. 2, and MIB part 3.
I forgot about It: Ch. 2! I’m adding that to my list. I think I’ll see MIB today if my friends are in town. You?
There's a good amount out now that I could see:
Annabelle Comes Home
Godzilla: King of the Monsters
Maybe even Child's Play even though it may be cheesy...I never watched any of the other of these
Others coming out after this I want to see:
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
Hobbs & Shaw
Awesome! Yeah, to date, I’ve seen: Godzilla, Detective Pikachu, Aladdin, Anna, Secret Life of Pets: 2, Toy Story 4, Dark Phoenix, and Avengers.
With the additions from your list, I plan to see:
Hobbs & Shaw
John Wick 3.
Great, yes I've always loved the movies! I used to belong to a program called MoviePass in which I could see as many movies a month as I wanted for just $10/mo, but there were problems w/ the program & it wasn't worth the hassle.

Senior discount!!! Woo hoo! $5-8 tickets instead of $20
Stopped eating popcorn. No matter what, it sticks in my teeth. I'm falling apart!
Couldn't you just freeze a coke, and then put it in a Nutribullet on slow speed?
I saw Aladdin. Very good!
Can't wait to see the new Lion King movie!!
Jul 6, 2019
I loved Aladdin! What great fun, haha!
And I just saw Spider-Man: Far From Home today. It was SO good!
To date, I’ve seen: Godzilla: The King of Monsters, Detective Pikachu, Aladdin, Anna, Secret Life of Pets: 2, Toy Story 4, Dark Phoenix, Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man: Far From Home, and John Wick 3: Parabellum.
I plan to see:
Hobbs & Shaw
Charlie’s Angels (just saw this stellar preview today)
Jul 7, 2019
Aaaannnnddd, I can now scratch John Wick 3 off the list, which was amazing, by the way. I highly recommend it!
