Jesse's tucked away in Alaska right now, far out of my reach, and sadly, out of my time. I woke up this morning to the simultaneous alarm song (an Empires one, obvs) and the text message ding on my phone: Jesse was going to sleep just as I was waking up for work. Big sigh.
This week I saw two movies - Wanted and The Incredible Hulk. I was iffy on both, but liked the innovative action in Wanted mixed with it's Fight Club-ish humor/style. I'd been previously introduced to the director, a Russian fellow, through his Russian film Nightwatch, that Justin had been feverish about last year on the MCS bus. That film's directing was incredible, but the story didn't draw me in. Wanted achieved both, thankfully. James McAvoy - you're coming around to me, even though I hated Atonement and you eerily remind me far too much of Dan Rydell.
The Incredible Hulk was decent, but honestly, it was just okay until the final (terrifying) action sequence and the Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr., Iron Man) cameo. It was well-made, but not one of my favorite comic book movies. It was nice seeing Norton run around half-naked most of the film, but all that was wiped away by the nicely-suited two-minute appearance of Downey Jr. I think Iron Man just knocked Norton out of my Five. Not that I have one anymore, cause I'm engaged and all...
Speaking of engaged, I saw photos of Anne Hathaway at the Italian premiere of Get Smart and she was wearing my wedding dress. I'm not even attempting to look up the designer, because I already know whatever that is - I can't have it. But I can look at it and sigh dreamily.
Back to work, huge update tonight :)
