Leonardo Dicapriohyesplease.

Well, well, well…what do we have here?



My passion for Leo is currently at a reignited, all time high, because I went to see Wolf of Wall Street. A good portion of this blog is going to be an amateur, fan girlish review of the movie and also just sporadic comments about how pretty his face is, I apologize in advance. I also apologize for the two day gap between posts, and the miserable quality of the previous one, but you know, it was a busy weekend of drinks and friends and staying in bed all day. Enough of that, let’s get to it.


So the movie, it was great. I expected it to be. However, I will tell you now, if you don’t want to sit through three hours of Leo, Jonah Hill & co. consuming more illicit substances than any single human ever should, swearing above and beyond the humble s & f’s, having sex (multiple times with multiple people) and a whooooole lotta boobs, then probably don’t see this movie. Or just because you feel weird about seeing Jonah Hill masturbating at a pool party.

Having mentioned that, IT IS SO GOOD. I might be biased because I love many of the cast members, and Scorsese is great, but it was clever and funny and awkward and, and, and AH. If you aren’t offended by any of the aforementioned reasons that it was rated R then definitely watch it, even just to see Leo and Jonah play guys totally messed up on drugs. Hiiiiighhhhhh-larious (pun!)

The storyline is clever, he starts his own firm of stockbrokers and practically is ripping people off, but he does it so well. Eventually it catches up to him, but he has a few tricks up his sleeve and a lot of friends and acquaintances that are just as messed up as he is. Humble beginnings to not to humble ends, how can one be such an asshole but so lovable at the same time? TELL ME YOUR SECRETS LEO!

Moving on, I mentioned in my last post how great The Book Thief is, so you better have watched it. To elaborate further, I really thought the movie was amazing. The cast chosen so well, the settings are perfect, it does justice to the book and that is all you ever want from a film adaptation. It makes it come to life, and it’s nice to see it portrayed on the big screen through professionals imaginations after I had read the book and pictured many things quite differently than the film crew and cast. I absolutely love Leisel, she is such an intriguing character. I don’t really want to spoil this one for anybody who hasn’t seen the movie or read the book. Do both. Please.

Onto completely unrelated topics, WHY CAN’T I COOK POTATOES PROPERLY?! SINCE WHEN IS JUNK FOOD NOT A BALANCED DIET?! BLARGHGHGH. Being an adult is poop.

Love you internet. See you tomorrow.
