Movie Monday: Blue Jasmine

Instead of my usual Music Monday, I’ve decided to do a Movie Monday instead! This week’s movie is Blue Jasmine. It stars Cate Blanchett, who won an Oscar for her role, and Alec Baldwin. Its acclaim, and the fact that renting it was $1 on iTunes, made me decide to watch it. I’m not usually a movie person so it was a nice change.

The movie is beautifully done and, without giving too much away, is basically about a socialite and her downfall into poverty. The movie is by Woody Allen, which has come with its own fair share of controversy, but I tried to watch it through a purely artistic lens and separate the art from the filmmaker and found it enjoyable.

I’d highly recommend viewing. The movie is only 98 minutes so if you’re like me and can’t stand too long movies, then this is perfect for you! I also liked Allen’s previous movie Midnight In Paris as well, which is also a must see, especially for literary lovers.

Rock of Ages

I’m not huge on musicals but I’ve decided to see the movie Rock of Ages. Although the costumes and hair look cheesy, I live for movies like this! It looks like one of those movies that although you’ll agree it’s not Oscar worthy, you’ll enjoy it anyway! Critics have been giving it bad reviews but I never usually agree with critics so I’ll see it anyway.

I know the movie is based on a musical of the same name and the movie stars Tom Cruise, which is one of the biggest reasons why I want to see it since I’ve never heard him sing before. It also stars Russell Brand and Alec Baldwin, which is definitely an interesting mix of actors. I’m supposed to be seeing the movie and eat at Chipotle with my friend Allison tomorrow and I’ll try to vlog it! I always want to try vlogging but always forget to pull out my camera. But I’m determined not to forget this time.

Here’s a trailer to the movie:
