This week was the week that pretty pissed me off. I got put on call with no notice and La La Land actually came out locally. As you can see by the log below, I have not go to be able to rewatch La La Land… let me be upset at this completely arbitrary and silly thing that I shouldn’t ever really be upset at.
This film follows Christine Chubbuck (Rebecca Hall) and her time of working in a small news outlet during the 1970s. She endures constant personal and professional lack of fulfillment with an unrequited love for the anchor, George (Michael C. Hall), as well as having to work on stories she sees are unimportant from her boss, Michael (Tracy Letts), and those stories she does values are constantly criticized. In the wake of such criticism she’s asked to bring more “blood and guts” to her nightly field reports which eventually has her come up with the brilliant idea of attempting to kill herself live on air.
What can I truly say about this week? It felt like a relaxed one. Another week where I’ve still yet to hit up my theatre, and it’s feeling nice to say that more and more. I keep finding out, even with my few home set up issues, that I enjoy the relaxation of being on my couch rather than making the trek out to my theatre and dealing with lines and such (sorry, that’s a lie, there are no lines at my theatre) that I just feel nice about it.
I'm Andrew, a software developer/all around technologist by day and a film enthusiast by night. I grew up on the silly things of Star Wars, Indiana Jones, The Three Amigos and Nightmare on Elm Street, so it makes perfect sense to me to have my love for film become ever expanding by the minute.
I started writing about film somewhere about 2005 on Facebook, and slowly but surely I moved on to blogging here on the internet. I've been featured with a few other publications along the way and am always looking for the opportunity to do more with this passion of mine.
So enjoy the words, listen to the many podcasts I'll do in the years to come, and let me know what you think.
