Music Monday: The Grammys

Last night was the Grammys on CBS and, since none of my favorite artists were performing, I kept watching on and off while doing homework. The show was ok and had a couple of noteworthy highlights. For me, the best performances were from Justin Timberlake and Maroon 5 & Alicia Keys. My favorite presenters were Beyoncé (obviously) and Ellen Degeneres.

There were a couple of surprises in terms of winners for awards. I was surprised Frank Ocean did not win Album of the Year. I was also surprised to see Adele still snatching in some awards after she dominated last year. The awards show this year made me anticipate the show next year since there will be more artists I like/know in attendance so I can’t wait!

The performance of the night.

Django Unchained

So going into Django Unchained, I was a little nervous. I don’t normally seek out movies about slavery nor have I ever seen a movie by Quentin Tarantino so I really didn’t know what to expect. It also generated a lot of controversy over some of the content in the film so I really didn’t know what to expect! That being said, it ended up being a funny movie, despite the fact that it was almost 3 hours long. :(

The movie was about a slave named Django, portrayed by Jamie Foxx, who seeks revenge for being sold away from his wife and sets out to find her. He gets the help from a Bounty Hunter. I don’t want to give away too much of the plot and spoil the movie but let’s just say the rest of the movie involves a lot of explosions, swear words, and comedy. I was also extremely satisfied with the ending. I now want to watch one of Tarantino’s other famous films, Pulp Fiction, since I’ve heard so many great things about it.
