I've seen at least one of the Pirates movies at a midnight showing, as well as these that also come to mind:
- Superman Returns (l-a-a-a-ame! very sacrilegious ... ask me why I think so! I'll prove it to you!)
- Indiana Jones 4 (also l-a-a-a-ame! aliens?! really?!)
- Spiderman 2 and 3 ... both very good in my opinion
- X-men Origins: Wolverine ... enjoyable
- Transformers 1 and 2 ... both Excellent, if only for "summer movie" quality fun!
But I am beginning to wonder if I'm getting too old for this. The crowds are usually crazed teenagers (or if not "teenagers" in years, certainly in maturity). There are cheesy, dumb contests of embarrassment. There is usually a long wait (I've personally "camped out" for about 8 hours at least twice) in a boring line just to get in to the theater (if you want decent seats anyway!) Then the movie gets over around 2-3 in the morning ... and that is NOT good on the sleep patterns and cycle of an "old man."
So tonight is more than just the first time seeing a summer potentially blockbuster hit movie ... it is possibly the last time I make this kind of decision. We'll see how it goes ... but if you don't hear about it again in a future blog, you can probably guess the outcome.
And finally, here's the part you're really excited about (NOT!) ... the Progressive shirt of the day ...
(to be loaded later since my wife isn't home and I don't know how to upload pictures from the digital camera!)
|This is one of the few Progressive shirts|
I have actually bought with my own money.
Our "Coach" team wanted to be unified
so we agreed to get these embroidered shirts
but I should have gotten a larger size
because it shrank and I hardly wear it now.
