I’m officially a freak for going to the movies 3 days in a row. But in all honesty, had to make up for last night’s fail. Holmes & Watson was legit the worst movie I’ve ever seen in theaters… or ever in life. I could go on for days but anyways. Tonight, I watched the Clint Eastwood movie, The Mule, which was incredible. Shout out to Jonrey for putting me on, we loved it!
just saw a movie for $11. i’m moving back to the bay.

I hadn’t even heard of this film until today, but Clint Eastwood is GOAT. Had to Google his age during the movie because the fact that he directs and stars in the film is beyond me… he’s 88!!! Wtf. Still killing it, still stuntin’ like he’s 30. We hit the 9:25pm showing at Century 20 Great Mall in Milpitas. Old stomping grounds! Used to come here as a family on weekends. I remember one year we pulled up on Black Friday & got trampled. Good times.
IMDB plot: A 90-year-old horticulturist and Korean War veteran is caught transporting $3 million worth of cocaine through Illinois for a Mexican drug cartel.
First off, shout out to the leather, plush reclining seats. The theater was tiny & only the front row was left, but I’m not picky at all. Shout out to non-picky movie watches. Within the first scene, you see every big actor on the big screen: Clint Eastwood, Bradley Cooper, Taissa Farmiga, Michael Peña. The movie was phenomenal & had so many life lessons (at least from my perspective). It’s a solid 2 hours long & I wasn’t bored a single second.
The fact that this old man is transporting millions worth of cocaine is phenomenal in itself. My only complaint is that they put too much butter on the popcorn & I feel sick (again). You guys have to go see this. If you appreciate a good film, you’ll appreciate this.
