Movie of the Week — Kingsman: The Golden Circle

“Kingsman: The Golden Circle is a 2017 action spy comedy film. It is a sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014), which is based on the comic book series Kingsman.

The film features Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Edward Holcroft, Sophie Cookson, and Hanna Alström reprising their roles from the first film, with Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, Pedro Pascal, Elton John, Channing Tatum, and Jeff Bridges joining the cast.

The plot follows the members of Kingsman needing to team up with their American counterpart, Statesman, after the world is held hostage by a new threat.”

Thanks Wikipedia!  As far as this movie goes, if you enjoyed the first you’ll most likely enjoy the second. If you haven’t seen either, I highly suggest watching. It’s what my husband calls “a cheap thrill” and sometimes you’re just in the mood for one. Plus, if you follow my  blog you know I’m obsessed with Colin Firth (siiigh — see my Bridget Jones’s posts). However, my new British hunk obsession is Taron Egerton who plays Eggsy. It’s seriously the perfect role for him! All in all, good film, regardless of any hoity toity review.

Continuing on, this post is my 40th …

… and sadly you’ll have to wait a short while for number 41. My students have just completed their first formal essays and with almost 100 papers to grade, I’ll be busy the next two weeks.

Plus, my mind is heavy, and not just my mind but my heart. I can’t stop thinking about the events that took place in Las Vegas. My husband and I just attended an outdoor country concert Friday evening (shout out to Luke Bryan & Jon Pardi!).

We also travel to Vegas often; I’ve gone since I was a little girl. My grandparents live there, we had our bachelor and bachelorette parties there, and we saw Britney Spears for my birthday two years ago. But I’m making this about me (which I tend to do, sorry) when it’s not; I’m not thinking of me. What I am thinking about are how many families no longer have a loved one. What I am thinking about is how scared and helpless everyone must have felt. What I am thinking about is how hundreds of survivors, while lucky for their lives, will never be the same.

I’m not here to give a long speech about spreading love not hate or give my stance on guns and this is part of the reason I’m taking a break from the blog. I need time to understand it all, but mostly how I live in a world where an event that is supposed to bring so much happiness and entertainment, can end in absolute devastation.

All my thoughts and all my prayers and just … everything goes out to everyone affected. See you in a few weeks.
