This afternoon marked the official "opening" of our annual . . .
Although the Oscar winners won't be announced until February, Tom and I have already started following "the buzz." We have our list. And we're heading for the movie theater. (Yes, beginning to follow the contenders this early in the process means . . . we see a lot of movies that never make it to the nominations. But that just means . . . we see a lot of really decent movies!) (It also means we don't miss the early-release movies and have to scramble to find them later.)
So. . . today, we saw a matinee of Quentin Tarantino's latest, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. This was a great movie to kick off the season for us.* First, we're Tarantino fans. Second, it lives up to the hype. It was very good and great fun -- and I'm not going to say another thing about it. (If you're interested in seeing it, my advice is to avoid the spoilers.)
Enjoy your weekend!
(Go see a movie.)
* Technically, we kicked off the season with Us several months ago. But that was really too early to be considered our official kick-off.
