Currently standing in the concessions line at the movie theatre. My cousin, Terry, asked me to make an impromptu run into the city to see The Hateful Eight, and I might not get back before midnight, so making this post now just in case I don’t. More to follow later!
Ok, back home not too long before midnight but glad I made the little entry above just in case.
The movie was pretty darn good, and pretty darn Tarantino-esque, both of which I expected. We heard some rumblings from others in the audience at the end that they didn’t like it or it was a waste of money, but my cousin and I enjoyed it. Great acting all around, especially by Jennifer Jason Leigh, I hope she gets some nominations for it.
Overall it was a pleasant surprise to get the call for a spur-of-the-moment trip to town, and I’m so glad I got to go. It’s always fun getting to hang out with my cousin, not only because we see some pretty good movies but just getting a chance to hang out and chat.
I saw an announcement that The 5th Wave comes out later this month, which I received in book form a few years ago and am only about 1/3 of the way though, so now I’m going to focus on finishing the book before the movie arrives. That’s my plan for the rest of the night, I think, it’ll be a nice way to cap off the evening, so that’s what I’m going to do.
