Chris and I watched The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box. It was really good. It was made in 2013. It is based on the book Mariah Mundi by G. P. Taylor. It is about two boys who discover that their parents are treasure hunters. Their parents leave them because a bad guy got a map to the Midas Box. The Midas Box was rumored to turn things to gold. But it also turned water into the fountain of youth. In the end, they save the box from the bad guy.
Then Chris wanted to go see a movie for his birthday. So we saw Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. It was really sad. It was about Jyn and her journey to save her father from making a big mistake by making the Death Star.
While on the Las Vegas trip, we saw The Passengers.The commercials for it was driving me crazy. The commercials were wrong though. It was really, really good. It was a little sad though. It was about a man named Jim Preston who walks up way too early on a spaceship going to a new planet. I asked Chris if he would have done what Jim did and he said no.
Last week I watched Nocturnal Animals. It was good. I sorta didn’t like the end. But I understand why it ended like it did. It is about a woman who owns an art gallery. Her ex-husband is a writer. He wrote a book for her that is very violent and horrible. (I think she misunderstood the meaning of the book. She might have thought it was a love note for her.)
I did see half of the movie The Intern while on the Vegas trip. It was really cute movie. It is about a 70 year old man who becomes an intern at a company. I also saw a little bit of the movie Joy. It is the true story of Joy Mangano.
This week I began a Bourne marathon. I re-watched Bourne Identity.
