Well, as you can see, I've updated my movie counter because The Iron Lady officially opens in the U.S. today, although only in New York and L.A. Just under the wire for Oscar. Fun side note, I'm typing this blog entry on our new Mac mini, a gift from Joe's parents for Christmas. I'm historically super tech-savvy so Joe is having to give me very few pointers(?).
As I think I've mentioned before, I'm not sure why Great Hope Springs doesn't come out for a year, as shooting ended in like September or October. It doesn't seem like the kind of film that would need a ton of editing. Unless they think it'll be an awards vehicle? Who knows?
I still have to wait two weeks to see Iron Lady, but I've waited this long, what's fourteen more days? There will be plenty of Meryl hype to feed my insatiable obsession until then. That should be a fun weekend though: lunch and Meryl with Scooter and then the Golden Globes the next day. Hopefully I'll be out of my sling by then. For those who have forgotten, I'm having shoulder surgery in like four hours. I really hope the next post I write, regardless of its contents, is greatly appreciated because it will have taken me about an hour and a half to type with my left hand. Until then, stay cool, Streepers.
