Before I get into my recap, of you're linking up for WEEKED Update, please blog about your weekend and link back to the blog hop. There are 100+ bloggers who join the linkup correctly each week and are here to make blogging friends. But unfortunately there are always a handful of people who blog about other topics and don't link back. I hate to be the Weekend Update police, but Sami ad I both explain how to link up in our posts each week and everyone should know. I didn't want to be that person, but if you don't link up properly you are being that person.
OK moving along, let's get to it!
This weekend I saw Gangster Squad. I didn't know what to expect going into it, other than it looked violent, received bad reviews, and most importantly, was filmed on Hollywood Blvd. The latter intrigued me since I live in Hollywood ad work on Hollywood Blvd. and really wanted to see the famous street transformed into the 40s.
Here's what I took away from the movie (don't worry, no spoilers):
-I finally get Ryan Gosling. He's hot. I am part of the bandwagon ladies!
-Emma Stone really didn't have that large of a role in the film.
-I live off one of the streets where the gangster deeds were taking place.
-Josh Brolin is pretty attractive for an older man.
-I am a sissy when it comes to violence and covered my eyes for nearly half of the film.
-Sean Penn is one creepy looking dude.
Overall I liked Gangster Squad. I don't feel like I wasted money going to see it, but I also won't buy it when it comes out on DVD. If you were thinking about catching a viewing, I'd recommend it. A solid 3 out of 5 stars.
Anyone else see it? What did you think?
