so, maybe I'm a bit critical

Things I had such high hopes for which fell flat:

The film Bright Star – I need films that make me feel like my heart is being ripped out. This was not one of those films. Okay, yes, many of the scenes were pretty to look at but the intensity I craved just wasn't there. In my humble opinion it was a problem of casting for the male lead.

The Doug Fir Lounge in Portland – I held the Doug Fir up on a pedestal in my mind but in the bright light of day (on a Sunday morning) the place looks pretty old and tired. I'm going to give it a second chance some night in the future when I can pretend it's a sleek and swanky place. Dim lights and an amazing music show will, I'm sure, change my mind.
