Quentin Tarantino is the man. Saturday afternoon we saw Inglourious Basterds, and as of now.. its my favorite movie of 2009. I honestly did not want to see it. I looked up movie times and noticed 500 Days was playing at the same time- which I was going to trail off and go see by myself. But after great reviews from my brother, Matt Q, I would give it a shot. Everything about this movie was awesome. My genre is usually romantic comedies, but this was just a crazy ridiculous movie with some hilarious lines and parts. BEWARE: Pretty gory though! Be warned.
There are so many new (to me) actors that I love after seeing this. Eli Roth (a local Newtonite), Christoph Waltz, Til Schweiger & Melanie Laurent. Plus, Brad Pitt redeemed himself as an actor... finally. Plus, there were even some Massachusetts shoutouts!
That was one of the highlights of the weekend. The rest of it was a nice time. I made Raspberry Puree and Champagne- Here's the recipe!
My lovely hubby pureeing the raspberries!AWESOME drink, except i broke 2 of the 3 Kate Spade flute glasses the next day when I was washing them. No worries, they were only wedding presents. Blerg. I also found my hat for the Saratoga Horse Race! I went to Mint Julep in Harvard Sq.. what a fun store! Big Hat will debut soon..
