What’s Trending?

Nope not thinking of style or clothing. These days I determine the fashion of the moment and it is mostly built on comfort. Fortunately for me, a lot of the styles are comfortable and feel good on. Though most things are years old. Sort of like me,

It’s been years since I regularly went to a movie theatre, because, well you know why. The first return was a few weeks ago for Elvis. (A worthwhile trip) So a wayward thought today was to wonder what is playing and what is most popular. Not according to my judgement but according to the movie goers as a whole.

I confess I have used information from Rottentomatoes.com though I have never been able to figure out exactly how it works.

NOPE the movie came up as number one. There are no stars I could recognize, and the idea of something strange that might or might not be a UFO has some intrigue to it, but it was the plot description you can read in the link from Wki that persuades me to go see the movie.

THE GRAY MAN is a Netflix movie, (my fave because of comfort viewing – read into that what you will) and is a for sure because of Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans and Billy Bob Thornton, who I thought was cool when the rest of the world did not. What’s not to like? CIA secrets, bad guys…you get it. I’ve read some think this movie is Ryan Gosling’s test for the next Jame’s Bond.

DC LEAGUE OF SUPER PETS – animated. Not so much my preference

THOR – LOVE AND THUNDER – Chris Hemsley – what can I say. I won’t go to the movies for this but will watch again and again when it comes to my TV.

WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING – This is the one that caught my eye and got me even thinking about movies. This was a book I did not want to read, but was my book club’s choice. I had prepared to grit my teeth and just get through it for the discussion.

Needless to say I got hooked. On the subtlety and nuance and became part of the story. Gripped by the twists. If this movie can capture that, this will be a great movie. Though I am aware that not a lot of movies can capture the book. BTW I think the Harry Potter series did a bang up job of that

Well, that’s enough of those thoughts here from North of 32 on a hot Sunday evening. Keep cool if you need, keep warm for those in winter,

  1. Nice list to ponder! I’m not much of a movie-goer even before you know what. But if it was a highly recommended movie, I’d watch it when it became available through the comfort of home viewing. I did read Where The Crawdads Sing too – I was hooked like you. It’d be hard to do the book justice in a movie, I hope it is good when you go!

  2. Trendy and fashion have never been part of my makeup. For that matter, neither has makeup. I will go to the theatre with the kids. Any movies I watch are usually saved for home watching. I loved your take on Thor. Watching it often at home. Made me chuckle.
