Number One Son, had given me two cinema tickets for my birthday, so yesterday Christopher and I went to see The Mummy - Return of the Dragon Emperor. And then, bless him, we found he had also organised a drinks voucher for us, so DH was able to have a large glass of wine, I had some water (the last of the great drinkers, that's me!) and we shared some salted popcorn.
The film was great fun, well up to the standard of the first two. Predictable plot, but good fun and the CGI was amazing. Certainly worth seeing on the big screen. And very topical for us, of course, following the visit of the Terracotta Army this year and with the Beijing Olympics. I think it's had some pretty average reviews, but for me if fulfilled all the criteria for a Saturday afternoon movie - entertaining without being intellectually challenging.
It was a real 'square eye' day yesterday, having spent the rest of the day glued to the television watching the Olympics - a brilliant day for the UK, with gold medals in swimming, rowing and cycling, as well as more bronze and silver medals. Thank goodness we were able to walk to the cinema, I needed a little exercise after all that sitting around. Lots of hand sewing and knitting though.
