There is something about going to the movies on rainy days that just makes my soul happy.
Yesterday my parents and I took my niece to her first movie at the theater ever. We saw Inside Out, which I had already seen the my friend weekend before (and cried in). Of course I cried seeing it the second time too. That is such a great movie dealing with all the different emotions and how they work together (and sometimes do not work together). I really loved how Joy was so concerned with being happy all the time, she didn’t see how it was okay to be sad. Sadness’s character really had some great points.

I had been planning on seeing either Terminator Genisys or Jurassic World in 3D, but when I realized it was Abigail’s first movie experience, I had to join. Especially when I asked her if I should see a movie with her or see one by myself and her response was something like “I don’t know. I love you and you can come with me.” I definitely had to go see a movie with her.
After, I watched some Netflix and debated the same question that plagued me that morning: Terminator or Jurassic World.
With the help of my friend Jess, I went and saw Terminator Genisys. I was actually pleasantly surprised with it. Even more surprised with Math Smith showed up. How in the world did I not know about him being in this movie!? I almost squealed out loud when I saw him (granted, I may have actually made a noise, but I saw it by myself so no one was there to tell me if I actually did). I am sure I danced in my seat and quietly clapped in excitement. I definitely think it is almost time to re-watch Doctor Who. Maybe start at the 11th Doctor so my heart doesn’t get ripped out at the 10th Doctor’s last words…
I love Carmike’s deal on seeing a movie between 4 (or 4:30, I can never remember) and 6. You can see a movie for $5.75 every single day between these hours. How awesome is that? I sometimes will go right after work (if the timing is right). So this is when I saw Terminator yesterday. I have been excited to watch it, but was a little hesitant. Although nothing compares to the first movie, I was surprised how much I enjoyed watched this one. I liked how Sarah Connor didn’t need to be saved by Kyle Reece this time around.
This morning (after finally getting a good night’s sleep), I woke up and the first thing I thought was: DINOSAURS. Since I didn’t get to see Jurassic World yesterday, it was definitely on my mind today. Because I am a grown up and can do what I want, I went and saw it…in 3D! Usually, I don’t like see movies in 3D, I never know if I am going to get a head ache or nauseous. But since I had already seen this before opening weekend, I figured, why not?
It has been a long time since I have gone to the movies this much in a short period of time. And let me tell you, it has been a fantastic long weekend so far.
