xmas eve evePosted: December 23, 2009
ya ever have one of those days where you fully expect to work and then suddenly find yourself at a 1:15 matinee? precisely what happened to me today. i was ready to go see “up in the air” this evening after work as it opened today and i wanted to avoid the christmas day crowds, per usual. work phoned and said i had nothing on my books, so i opted for the full day off. and i was pleased as punch.
the theater was practically empty and, for a change, actually warm and toasty. perfect movie-going conditions. and thoroughly enjoyable. and while i thought the movie was heading toward predictable, it did not end the way i imagined. and i was happy for that. that’s it. that’s my review. a good solid movie and a good solid movie-going experience. these are days i live for. an unexpected day off from work and a good movie in a warm, empty theater. merry christmas to me.
