Let’s go to the Movies

I have not seen a movie at the cinema for ages**. I think the last movie I saw was Jumanji (with Dwayne Johnson). It was a movie the kids wanted to watch, I ended up really enjoying it.

Streaming services like Netflix, Stan, and Disney + have been a godsend because now we can watch movies in the comfort of our own homes.

In our house, we have been watching a bit of everything. From blockbusters to arthouse, to family favorites.

We’ve just finished watching the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe aka MCU in chronological order. Yep, all 22 movies! Needless to say, I’m not really into blockbusters anymore. Am I getting old that I prefer the arthouse movies instead?
