July 5th, 2016.
It's been about a week since I photographed Carrie Fisher, Rupert Murdoch and even some of the people directly involved in the movie Absolutely Fabulous at the "Absolutely Fabulous" premiere, but premieres seem to have gotten themselves prodded awake here in London, to the point where there's about four coming up in the next 10 days.... after this one.
Here's how it went down:
And then, through a rather fortuitous development, I found myself randomly in possession of a ticket to see the movie at its European premiere (thanks, Marnie!). And I decided to use said tickets, because at that time I had no reason to believe that the a55hats who run my train line would have yet more disruptions once I showed up at the station at just before 10pm on a Tuesday evening....
So... that was that, then. I got home a lot later than I would have, ordinarily; and thanks to the ongoing acceptability of the the-dog-ate-my-homework equivalent "signalling problems" on my line, I got home even later than THAT. But it's okay, you can pay some voice-over actress to record a pre-recorded all-purpose apology for the inconvenience and that makes it all okay.
Oh and the movie? .... it's better than the bad reviews it's been getting. It's okay. Kind of feels like a movie that's been made a decade after a popular TV show I didn't watch. It had some okay ideas, but it seems like they decided to insert them into a Tarzan film and I'm not so sure that worked. Christoph Waltz was good, Margot Robbie was pretty, and Alexander Skarsgard's chest is indeed impressive, if you're into that (and I'm not but the popular feeback was fairly positive).
Until next time!
