Sorry about the lack of posting. I have been settling into my new life in the Big Apple. I can't believe it's been almost two months already!
I saw Kingsman: The Golden Circle on opening day (September 22) with my friend Rebecca, who moved out here from California a week before I did. It's taken me a week to post this not only because of work, but because I needed the time to process my thoughts and feelings about this film.
The first time I saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, I was with Éli Chau and Jane Davidson at The El Capitan Theatre for the premiere on Thursday night. The second time I saw it was with my dad at a local theater last night. Both experiences left me feeling highly entertained by the stunning visuals, 70s pop-rock soundtrack, and wisecracking ensemble. It was good, but like many sequels to mega-hits, was overstuffed and not quite as fresh as the original.
Full disclosure: this will not be a true "R&R." Why? Because this was the first year in - I don't know how long - that I did NOT watch the Oscars live.
I know, what? How could I possibly do that? I consider Oscar Sunday a holiday! I must've had a good reason...
I like to think I did.
Happy New Year! I meant to post this yesterday, but the day got away from me.
Anyway, this is my first R&R (reactions & reviews). If you read my last blog post, you know that this is where I reveal the results of the friendly competition between my friends - all young women in the entertainment industry - and I. We all made our picks in regards to who we thought would win (or, in some cases, who we wanted to win). I have also included my reactions and commentary to the awards show.
Here are some thoughts I had and quotes I liked from the 74th Annual Golden Globes:
