So I’ve gone to the movies twice since I’ve been here. Generally, I would consider this a silly thing to do since going to the movies is so expensive. Not so here in nowhere, Michigan! A student ticket at the local theater is $3.50 and on Thursdays they have giant bags of $1 popcorn.
So far I’ve seen Wall-E and Hancock. Wall-E is really beautiful and fun and has a timely message about consumerism, though Jay Smooth over at Ill Doctrine points out some problems with it. Hancock is also fun, but you are required to not think to enjoy it.
