I really want to see it!

We're going to see Moana today because I haven't missed a Disney cartoon in theaters since I could drive myself. They're always amazing on the big screen!

We've got a lot of films to see. I'm still getting the hang of how movies don't stay in the theaters as long here. I've missed movies because of that.

The usual. American girl meets British guy. They fall into like, then into love. Then there was the big decision. The American traveled across the pond to join the Brit. And life was never the same again.

If it ever comes to Netflix. (I’m trying to wean myself off the dodgy sites.) Haven’t been to a theatre in years.

I totally understand. I haven't been able to look at Pierce Brosnan the same way since "Mama Mia"! That was dire!

I may be biased...I just love singing and dancing....who can dislike singing and dancing?

But I will say that the five and a half hours of Les Mis seemed like an eternity...

I normally love singing and dancing. But I couldn't get into the movie. I felt like the story was super slow and very fluffy until maybe the last 15 minutes of the film. :(

We saw it today.  We loved it and hated it.  If you've seen it, you know why.  I don't want to give any spoilers.

Well you are a pro....so the dancing might have seemed a bit rudimentary...

No, wasn't that at all.  I love music and dance.  Not a snob about it as I love to see it at any level and just to see performing arts showcased.

I don't want to spoil anything!  I'll wait a few weeks and then elaborate.

I thought Ryan and Emma were both outstanding.  I thought they really balanced each other - just as the great couples in real life balance each other.
