Box Office: Hobbs & Shaw

What did you see?We took a beach weekend in Fire Island so the movies weren't viewed though they were still very much on our mind.Particular due to a showtunes night at the Pavilion where ample clips fromChicago,Burlesque,Dreamgirlsand more were shown.FYI: Catherine Zeta Jones' Velma Kelly is still magic.

The Farewell: Lovely to see Awkwafina in a lead role.

Kiki's Delivery Service: Apparently the 30th anniversary.I had never seen it before.A packed and enthusiastic audience.Interesting how someone's distinctive artistic imagination flutters in the back of your mind.

Hobbs and Shaw: I've never seen any of the Fast and Furious series.I've always liked Jason Statham,I like Dwayne Johnson,and am already a fan of Vanessa Kirby.Statham,Kirby,and Helen Mirren as a family - what bliss.Also fun is Johnson's Samoan family with Cliff Curtis.
But the film seemed really long,especially when there wasn't much of a story.
