With this infernal heat, there are really only two options: play in the water or hideout in the air conditioning. Seeing how most of Boise and the surrounding area converge on the water, I tend to stick to the air conditioning.
Over the weekend, that included going to see Red 2.
It did not receive the best reviews. Pity. I quite loved it. It served the perfect hideaway for a few hours. John Malkovich slayed me. Mary-Louise Parker–how cute is she? And Dame Helen Mirren–I hope to be just like her when I grow up. Granted, I’m American . . . there’s a fairly good chance I’ll never have a title of any sort . . . and I’m not at all graceful (red carpets could do quite well without me, thank you). She does seem a bit feisty, however. Now that, we have in common . . . so, I’m on my way!
Another thing I loved about the movie–the audience. I’m not sure if it was simply the people who arrived for the 3:45 showing, or the fact that approximately 95% of the audience was over the age of 65–whatever it was, it was some good times. A bit like getting two shows for the price of one. I’d like to tell you what was so very entertaining, but alas, I’ve got nothing.
I’m gonna go ahead and blame that on the heat, too.
So, how about your weekend?
