So I just came back from work — a 6 hour shift that ended up extending all the way to 2:45 in the morning thanks to Public Enemies. I had to (OK, more like offered to) preview one of the prints to make sure it was ready for tomorrow’s opening. And boy, am I ever glad I did! Not only did I just get paid for watching a movie, I got paid for basically watching two of the sexiest men ever play a game of cat and mouse onscreen. Johnny Depp was absolutely marvelous in this movie; seriously, I can’t recall seeing him any better. In all honesty, I stopped liking Johnny Depp after all the Pirates of the Caribbean hoopla, but damn the man is a good actor. As for Christian Bale, the guy honestly just manages to tug at my heartstrings no matter what role he plays. I don’t know how.
Oh, and Channing Tatum makes a random cameo in the beginning. I never liked him much, but I thought it was random. And apparently he gets major billing in the film, even though his appearance was quite short.
I just hope that I don’t end up regretting having to stay up late tonight, because tomorrow I’m going to the Taste of Chicago. For the very first time ever. Yes, that’s right. I’ve lived in the Chicago area for pretty much all my life, and I have yet to ever attend the annual summer festival. I used to be ashamed of this, but when I realized that there were actually other people like me out there, who’ve never gone, I felt much better. I’m super excited because Ne-Yo and Keri Hilson are due to perform in a free concert at the Taste. Hopefully it’ll be fun.
