2 Movies and 1 Basketball Game on MLK Weekeng
I reported on the college basketball game at MSG in my last posting, so it is not necessary to repeat it here. The only thing to add was that subways and buses on weekends can be as jam-packed as they are during rush hours during the week. There are fewer people on public transportation, but since there is less service, crowding results.
With that thought in mind, we decided to stay close to home on Sunday and Monday. At least this weekend there were a few films that appeal to an older audience. On Sunday we saw Patriot's Day which gave an accurate account of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013. What the hell were those two brothers trying to prove by killing and maiming innocent people?
Today we saw La La Land a romantic movie starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. I highly recommend it.
