NOT SO STELLAR

After so many plans to go to the theater, and then REDBOX the movie Interstellar, I finally had the opportunity do watch it last night. My verdict isn’t so kind.. I actually didn’t like it nearly as much as I 1) expected to and 2) wanted to. There are some amazing parts, don’t get me wrong. The idea of time travel and inter dimensional communication fascinates me and, quite honestly, may be possible.. CERN could tell us that soon. But as a movie, it missed a few marks I wanted it to hit. I cheered for it.. I supported it.. But in the end, I felt let down by a somewhat empty string of dialogue and some forced emotions that didn’t seem natural with the actors involved.

I won’t spoil anything .. There’s a slight chance that at least one or two people have yet to view the film..

I give the movie a 4 out of 10. Sorry.

But I do give Anne Hathaway’s haircut a 9 out of 10, though she looked a little like a young Leonard Nimoy, and I’ll kindly rate Matthew McConaughey’s new face a 10. Except his eyebrows, which at times looked glued on.

Maybe that’s what inter dimensional space travel does to a face and a hairstyle.

Intrigue in China: Where is Fan Bingbing

From CNN:

Fan Bingbing, one of China's highest-paid and most bankable stars, has appeared in both Chinese and Western films, including the multimillion-dollar X-Men franchise. Across the country, her face once adorned thousands of advertisements, her star power used to sell a galaxy of luxury brands, from Cartier to Louis Vuitton. She was a regular sight at major award shows and fashion ceremonies. In 2015, Time Magazine named her China's "most famous actress."  But the film star hasn't been seen in public since early June, when, according to a post on her verified social-media account, she went to visit a children's hospital in Tibet. In an article by state media Securities Daily on September 6, which was later deleted, the publication said Fan had been brought "under control and about to receive legal judgment."
