I’ve been working most of the weekend, so I figured I’d take some time off before bed and watch a movie and drink a cup of tea. In terms of the tea, I’m trying to be a good decaffeinated Anna and drink my rooibos. I chose this, because it’s so luxurious and smooth and always hits the spot for me. I honestly think this might end up being a restock when I finally manage to clean out my tea stash.
As for the film, well. May I say I’ve been having the most amazing time so far – there’s roughly a quarter of an hour left of this masterpiece, and even though I was quite late to this particular party and have indeed been exposed to much of the hype, I am not disappointed. It’s such a privilege to get to watch one of the actors you adored growing up in the role of a lifetime. From teen heartthrob to this – a deeply conflicted individual, struggling to reach out to his estranged family in a time of overwhelming hardship. The enemies this man faces. The obstacles. Not to mention the stunning visuals. Finally, may I say how rare it is that I watch a movie and am consistently surprised at every twist and turn – I doubt I have leaned forward in sheer awe this many times during a screening before.
Seriously – don’t miss it; unless you’ve already seen Sharknado, hunt it down this instant.
