A little more than a week ago, I was invited to see Kong vs. Godzilla. In a theater! A bunch of friends had gotten together and rented the theater for one showing. I was invited to join them, and I couldn’t turn that down. https://cheryelhutton.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/godzilla-vs-kong.png
In case you don’t know, I love monster movies. Especially when the monster is huge. My favorite movies are: King Kong (1933), Jurassic Park, and The Day the Earth Stood Still. As a kid, I spent many hours watching “B” movies, and the Godzilla movies were my favorites of those. I’ve seen Pacific Rim twice, and would watch it again in a heartbeat.
So, to see Kong vs. Godzilla was a real treat. It was fun, and relaxing, and a break I seriously needed. I’m not going to review the movie. If you’re a fan, you’ll love it. If you aren’t, you won’t understand the excitement. The group I went with loved it.
Best of all, going to a theatre was an indulgence I hadn’t had in a long time. Few people have had over the last year. One of those things we took for granted right up until last year. Now it’s a special treat. I had my second vaccine last week, so hopefully things are on their way back to normalcy.
And the days when going to the movies wasn’t a huge treat, but just a normal weekend evening.
What do you want to do as soon as things get back to normal?
