The Nun conjured up the biggest audience in movie theaters this weekend, leaving the believers among us saying lots of prayers for her profitable predicament. The atmosphere was significantly lighter for those Crazy Rich Asians, still having the craziest time. Drama surrounded newbie Peppermint, who had one sweet opening. The Meg refused to head out to sea (and our version of heading toward the out-of-the-box-office horizon), frightening those still lurking in the ocean. Moviegoers faithfully continued Searching for lost loved ones during these last waning summer days
Religion and revenge were served up in large portions this weekend at the movies, the wacky wealthy continued to connect with the crazy within us and the ocean remained a frightening place to be.
Happily, our local movie theaters remained the best place to be, as we gradually cruised into a new season of stories.
