Checked out We Own the Night this weekend and was impressed by the movie, as well as the popcorn. Not my first trip to the Ritz but since I was starving, I paid close attention to the concessions, which are amazingly affordable.
The Good: The butter was applied by what seemed to be a butter applying expert, just the perfect amount. I asked for no salt, and got no salt. Genius. I spent 10 minutes wondering why it tasted so good compared to other area theaters.
I realized, the thing that made it perfect was: they didn't try to improve on an already perfect snack. Just popped the damn popcorn, put it in a bag, and sold it. How hard is that?
Needless to say, 45 minutes into the movie the popcorn was gone. And no gassy stomachache afterwards!
The Bad: A lot of loose shells, but magically avoided getting stuck in my teeth. Helps that I was swallowing kernels whole due to my borderline starvation.
The Ugly: After my girl reached into the bag three times, I threatened to buy another bag because it was too good.
The Random: Eva Mendes' booby seemingly pops out in this movie, but I'm pretty sure it was a body double. The breast looked nothing like I imagined it.
Official ALP Rating: 4.75 outta 5
