Yesterday, my friend (Brianna) and I went to watch The Man from U.N.C.L.E. After a long few weeks of hard work, we were both really looking forward to the event. Brianna went first to buy the ticket: “Can I have a ticket for UNCLE 4PM?” I waited for the service person to say anything – anything possible like: “Yes. That would be something dollars.” However, despite my amazing, reasonable guesses, the person responded with something totally unexpected: “May I see your ID, please?” Brianna doesn’t have her license, but I had one. So, I stepped up and asked why an ID was needed. Apparently, UNCLE was being shown in a VIP lounge; this meant that we had to be 18 or older to get in. Needless to say, we were frustrated. Nowhere online warned us about this kind of policy, and frankly, it felt like we wasted a lot of time. Most of the movies we were interested in watching was in the VIP lounge or later in the night. However, there was one that worked: Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation.
“Might as well…” I said. “Might as well…” And that’s exactly what we did. We watched Mission Impossible. From the first scene with Simon Pegg, I remembered that I actually was interested in watching the movie when I watched the trailer few months back. I knew we made the right decision when Alec Baldwin made his appearance with Jeremy Renner. Indeed – the movie was entertaining. Perhaps, I was supposed to just watch MI-Rogue Nation.
