“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.”
