Movie night recap for Friday, Aug. 23, 2013. First, the important details. I wore Benefit Dallas (looks great with a tan), NARS Tinted Moisturizer (a combo of St. Moritz and Cuba) with Hourglass Ambient Powder in Dim, POPBeauty Plump Pout in Fuchsia Freesia and a shimmery taupe lid with black cat eye liner.
Next, the movie, Elysium. Well, it could have been great…but it went down the rabbit hole of your run-of-the-mill action flick. The idea — a massive utopian space station where all of the world’s wealthiest people live in luxury, immune to disease and wanting for nothing, while the earth is polluted, overcrowded and impoverished sounds pretty interesting, right?
Sounds like good sci-fi, and it could have been, but then the samurai swords come out, and Matt Damon picks up a machine gun and BAM! — nonstop action movie.
I liked it…but I wanted to love it!
In other news, are you rising and shining today? I plan to, just as soon as I get some coffee in me. Oh, sweet nectar of the gods, how I look forward to our morning meetings…
