BIG HELLO to everyone! We are finally back home from our five weeks in Europe. Exhausted, refreshed, inspired, thankful, and content! Thanks to all for the wonderful comments and updates along the way. We truly feel like we live in a global family!!
It’s with apologies we are behind on our movie reviews. We managed to see nine movies while on the road. The first three have already been published. The next six will be posted over the next few days in two separate posts.
A quick list of things that surprised us:
- We were surprised to see films released in Europe before the US including Port Authority, Terminator: Dark Fate, and A Rainy Day in New York.
- The multiplex in Bratislava, Slovakia offers snacks like nachos with Vodka shots!
- One massive Paris complex had 32 screens, all underground. Most theaters 75 to 95% full.
- We saw the most popular films shown in VO (version original) that means the language of the films origin. We only saw English language films, some had subtitles in two or three languages.
Movie 1: Joker
Movie 3: Terminator: Dark Fate
This was better than we expected. After all the last three editions were a bit bleak. This version was inventive, adding just enough new twists to keep it fresh while respecting the franchises’ history. It’s well worth the watch if you are already a fan.
