Not surprising, wife and I attended the Thursday night showing of F8 of the Furious. Obvious spoiler alert warning is obvious.
Fun fact: I have an independently owned local theatre that does fun little things, like a one night showing of the 2001 The Fast and the Furious. While not new, it was fun to see a favorite movie on the big(ish) screen again.
Recently attended a showing of the 2017 Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson. The following are my thoughts on the movie
