It amuses me to no end that Uma Thurman’s new film made £88 on its first weekend released in Britain; £9 on Sunday, meaning one person went to see it. Tragic or lol? – you decide!
Personally, I couldn’t really care less about seeing the story of “an ordinary housewife”. Is she actually a spy? Is her house built on a cemetery, about to transform into a portal from hell and swallow her kids? Is Uma going to explore female identity as it relates to her character as well as a wider social consciousness, then have her hand amputated and replaced with a ray gun? … if no, then that’s my answer too.
Tonight I’m going to make Taipei American School-style nachos – that basically involves scooping cheese spread out of a jar, microwaving and eating it, slathered on corn chips with salsa. Oh yeah. Then I shall don hot pink explorer socks and oversized pajamas, listen to the Spice Girls while I cruise interior design/style blogs. It’s okay, I’d be jealous too.
