Going to see my old friends—today!

Going to see my old friends—today! Can't Post

It wasn’t all that long ago, it seems, that I, along with the rest of us, was engaged in a promise, a pledge, an assurance, a declaration of sort ... well, a tease... “Next December” is now here, finally... And I have a date with the dwarves later this evening, courtesy of an advanced screening at a local cineplex.

No, not these dwarfs!

These Dwarves!

Yes, them!

I’m not quite sure how or what I’m feeling, really. Kinda numb a bit, I guess. Just like preparing for an exam all you can in full anticipation, then the day eventually arrives... I’m just going to show up early, wait patiently in line, and get through the doors with the crowd when it’s time, then sit back and savor every frame as much as I could... Don’t want to be any more overwhelmed than I already am. It has been almost a decade, after all (unbelievably!), that I haven’t seen my old friends. And most of them will be there.

The trouble with catching an advanced screening, though, is, what do you do next for an encore? What else to see? Especially during the holidays?

Oh, I promise to keep mum afterward. At least until next week or so.

And back again

Enjoy the film and report back, please!

I will go there ... and back again.
