Yesterday and this morning have been wild.
8a- CelebTV 4p- Meeting 5p- TV Guide shoot for “Hollywood’s Quickest Marriages” 6:30p- Dinner at Purple Pig 9:30p- Dark Knight Rises at IMAX Midnight- LCD Soundsystem’s “Shut Up and Play The Hits” 3am- sleep 6am- wake up call for Fox 7:55a- Segment 1 8:55- Segment 2.
Dinner at the Pig was amazing per usual. Jimmy Jr snuck us in and he nails every dish time and time again.
The Dark Knight Rises was beyond.
Remember- I’m not a film critic so take what I say at face value. The IMAX theater enhanced all the action scenes, Anne Hathaway was so bad ass as Catwoman and Bain scared the crap out of me.Plus I have a huge thing for Christian Bale- temper and all. Confession- we had to leave before the film was over in order to make it to the midnight showing in time and I heard we missed the best part. I can’t wait to see it again.
Shut Up and Play The Hits was a completely different experience. It was at The Music Box theater which has one theater, little air conditioning and a different set of rules. They have someone intro the films with a mic on stage before and have no issue saying; “We’re not AMC, we’ll kick your ass out” if you’re on the phone or being a jerk.
The film was very insightful and thoughtful and was everything I had hoped it would be. The interview by Chuck Klosterman made me grateful I didn’t get the interview with James. It was so in depth and sounded like a shrink helped him write his questions.
Plus the music. The music. And they way it was shot, almost made you feel like you were at the final MSG show. Nah, I wasn’t there…and that sucks.
I am on 3 hours of sleep right now, but it is worth it. I feel like I was “there” for once, and not just reading about it on social media from bed.
