L and I watched 'Chef' the other night. It was a really good movie, imo. It was sweet and funny - Jon Favreau is great, and John Leguizamo was hilarious, I adore him! The music was fantastic, a lot of salsa and jazz  and some blue-grass - I'm going to get the soundtrack.


The thing about the movie is that I kept waiting for something *bad* to happen. It's about a man, a chef, who is frustrated working for other people and gets a food truck and goes out on his own (John L's character and his son in tow.) He's rejuvenated and connects with his son and basically just has a good time. I kept waiting for the food truck to get t-boned and destroyed, or his son to get injured or sick, or just anything to halt the happiness. And other than the incident in the beginning to get him motivated to quit his job, nothing bad happened. It was great!

I finally finished season four of 'Justified' and was going to start season five but...it's not on Amazon, at least not for free! I haven't checked out any other places I might be able to see it, but I better get on the stick if I want to catch up before the finale.

*****
I read an article in EW where one of the show runners for 'The Walking Dead' said fans will either hate or love Sunday's episode. I neither loved nor hated it. I'm not a fan of that type of imagery, fore shadowing kind of stuff, but...meh.

I started watching 'Better Call Saul' but fell asleep - might go finish that and the next episode right now!

eta: I was wrong about Justified, I *can* watch on Amazon.

I love Chef. It's a sweet little movie that just makes me smile. It's currently my go-to movie when I feel a little down.

Oh, Chef! I remember a couple of seasons ago (?!) on Top Chef when they were plugging that movie and Jon Favreau was one of the guest judges. It sounded interesting then, and even more so now, thanks for the rec. Oddly I've been listening to a lot of bluegrass lately so I'll also check out the soundtrack.

I'm also rushing to finish S4 of Justified but I'm not sure I'll make it in time to see the series finale live.

I had to re-watch some of season four of Justified - I get confused a lot over what's going on on that show...lol.
