Quickie movie review… went to see San Andreas with RGG the other night. Let’s just say, I’m never moving to California! I didn’t think I’d like the movie at first, but it turned out to be pretty good. A little cliche, but not bad. The seismologist/professor reminded me a little bit of Richard Dreyfus’ character in Close Encounters of the Third Kind… no one listened to him until it was almost too late. But in the end he’s the big hero. There’s a little bit of romance (gotta love a guy with an English accent, right?), some great adventures, and really great visual effects. There were quite a few times when I actually ducked in my seat because I was afraid something was going to get me. 😯
The best part of the movie though, as always, was the company. RGG is REALLY fun to go to the movies with. First of all, he’s almost (but not quite) Sheldon-esque when he picks his seat. I guess it’s really more like Goldilocks… finding the seat that’s just right. But it’s cute, and I have to admit I haven’t had a bad seat since we’ve been going out. RGG isn’t one to “shush” you during the movie either. He doesn’t mind a little whispering now and again. A some giggling too. But don’t be obnoxious or he’ll tell you what’s what! AND get compliments on it from other movie-goers afterwards. True story! Gotta like a guy who stands up and does that.
So I think this was movie #3 for us, #5 if you count the two we watched together, but apart. He’s definitely a fun guy to watch movies with.. and tonight he said the same about me…can you see me smiling?
Hopefully many more movies to come.
