“nope” the movie (a review in thirty words)

Es­ti­mated reading time is 1 minute.

A DOLLAR TO SEE A MOVIE? NOPE—NO WAY! Okay, it’s been a long time since I thought that way but having grown up paying a quarter for the Sat­urday mati­nees, a buck seemed like a bit much. Decades later and in­fla­tion has boosted the cost of a movie ticket into the stratos­phere, rel­a­tively speaking.

Today, in the year 2022, tickets cost $15 al­though we get in as se­niors for a “mere” $13. Need­less to say, we do not go to a lot of movies. But yes­terday was some kind of spe­cial day at the na­tion’s Regal The­aters and all tickets for all shows were $3 each!

So, we went to the movies to see Nope, which was get­ting rave re­views on the in­ternet. Sit­ting through it rel­a­tively com­fort­ably in a re­clining chair made in­spired me to write a rare movie review—a rather rare and very rather brief movie review.

Here it is:

“Paying $3 to see Nope was the biggest waste of $3 since I al­lowed a friend to talk me into trying a Big Mac for the first time in decades.”
