Going to see Elvis in the theater

It’s one for the money, two for the show… three to get ready now go, cat, go! That’s exactly what we’re doing. Going to see Elvis in theaters, that is. My parents and I are doing a matinee showing of the new Elvis movie and all three of us are as happy as a hound dog with two tails.

The movie’s been in theaters for awhile now, but because of other things going on (like camping), I haven’t been able to see it. You saw me crying in the chapel… OK, I wasn’t quite crying, but I was getting worried we’d miss it in theaters. Today, that all changes! I think watching this movie will be the next best thing to going to Graceland, which I’ve done a few times.  

I’m pretty excited to find out a few things: 

1. Will it live up to the great reviews it’s been getting? 

2. Will it include a few of my favorite Elvis songs, like “Tiger Man,” “Love Letters,” or “An American Trilogy”?

3. The ’68 Comeback Special is one of my favorite performances. Will the movie capture it well?

I guess this should be considered part 1 so tomorrow I’ll post part 2, which will include my reaction and whether I loved it a lot or a little, and what my hounds got into while I was off having fun. 🙂

Thanks for dropping in…
