Sunday, August 18th
Happy Sunday. Today I got to hang w/ the broskees. We went to Malibu for a hike at Solstice Canyon, which was cake lmao. I literally didn’t break a sweat, smh. But there was no service & it felt hella good to disconnect. Got a massage after at Joy Foot Spa, the lady was so happy to see me. It warmed my heart.
Next we hit AMC Burbank Town Center 8 for Where’d You Go, Bernadette, which was the best option we could hit timing wise. We hit the 9pm showing which actually had a lot of people in the theater. The movie got mixed reviews, half said it was bomb half said it was trash. I’m indifferent lmao. I think it had a ton of potential to be fire, but the vibe was just corny.
IMDB plot: A loving mom becomes compelled to reconnect with her creative passions after years of sacrificing herself for her family. Her leap of faith takes her on an epic adventure that jump-starts her life and leads to her triumphant rediscovery.
I guess it’s based on a novel, one of those movies where the book is way better than the film. It was a pretty all-star cast, with Cate Blanchett playing the main character. Judy Greer and Kristen Wiig are in it also. The movie’s an hour 44 minutes which felt really dragged out & the ending was super predictable. Pretty much this mother has social anxiety, insomnia, anxiety & her family is trying to fix them.
There’s a ton of messages in mental health here that I believe could have been projected in a better light. She hoards a bunch of pills & her family does an intervention with her. I wouldn’t recommend seeing it. Go see Good Boys! That shit made my life.
