I work at PNC and we have to use up all of our vacation days before the end of the year and so I took a day off his past week to go to the movies. I liked two choices: a movie based on my favorite book growing up (The Hobbit) and a movie based on my favorite book as an adult (The Bible). I chose to go the spiritual route and so I and a mostly empty bus from a local Baptist church watched the movie Exodus: Gods and Kings, a modern retelling of the story of Moses. It’s a good movie, but because of the special effects and the battle scenes, the movie is closer to The Hobbit than it is to The Ten Commandments, and so I really got to see both movies at the same time.
