Let's Make a Move to the Movies

Going to the movies is something that I cherish, though it's not something that I do often. The last movie (well, movies) that I actually went see in theaters was Big Hero 6, and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. I was in Florida and with my favorite married couple (and best friends) Thomas & Sonya. Sonya and I love going to the movies and watching movies together, while Thomas has ADHD out the wazoo so it's hard for him to sit still that long. We didn't want to leave anyone out, so we came up with a compromise. We would see the two movies Sonya & I were planning on seeing, but the second movie would be at the dine in theater, where you can also drink. It was a win-win situation. 

We went to see Big Hero 6 first, and then went to the Fork & Screen side of the AMC Theater that we were at. I have to say, I loved Big Hero 6, although I saw a lot of parallels to the other super hero that I've seen (which is to be expected). I think that the story was done amazingly well, and you can bet that when the movie comes out on DVD I'll buy it. I love Baymax, and I really love the architecture throughout the movie. I started off my college career in architecture, and growing up in Louisiana made me really, really appreciate all different types of architecture. My favorite character in the movie had to be Honey Lemon. 

After Big Hero 6 was over, we went to walk around Downtown Disney until it was time for us to go see the Hunger Games movie. It was rainy that day, so we ducked into as many shops as we could just looking around. We ended up walking all the way to World of Disney (or WoD), which if anyone knows the layout of DownTown Disney is incredibly far. We played around in WoD until we felt decompressed from Big Hero 6, and it was an appropriate time to walk back without being too insanely early. 

I had never been to a dine in theater before, so this was a new experience for me. I liked how there were only a few seats (maybe 50 total) in the theater so it wasn't too crowded. We were all planning on going to eat afterward so we didn't order any food, but Thomas had a drink. The movie? It was okay. It wasn't my favorite, but I also didn't really like the first half of the book when I read it, so I didn't have too high of hopes for it. I was really glad that we saw that movie second because once it was over, we were kind of done for the night. Thomas drove us to get food and then we went back to their place to hang out a little more. I almost passed out on their couch for the night so at that time we decided it was probably a good idea for me to drive home. 

Thomas & Sonya are two of my absolute favorite people, and though we were wowed by one movie and less than impressed with the other, we still had an amazing time.
