I stayed the night at Lynne's but set off before 6:30 to try and get a good run in this morning. I should've listened to my body and taken a day off. I had to quit after about 5km. I was just too tired. My body had not recovered from Friday's run nor Saturday's gym workout. I was totally pooped. I went home and decided to watch 7 Pounds. (I have it on my laptop even though it was just released. It's actually a really clear bootleg. I know, bootleg: bad, but my access to good films, legitimately shown in a theatre, is very limited. Believe me, I much prefer seeing films at the cinema rather than watching them on my laptop. I do what I can.) It was ok. Will Smith has really grown as an actor and was fantastic. I know the role took a lot out of him; it could not have been an easy one to play. I think Rosario Dawson is just amazing. The camera loves this woman and she just brings a touch magic to the screen. She has that it quality. But I just felt no chemistry between Smith and Dawson. Two beautiful people on the screen, and... nothing. I just didn't feel it. Perhaps it was the darkness and depressing nature of the film that overshadowed everything else. I do think the film is worth seeing, as is this photo (neither dark nor depressing) of Rosario from a recent awards ceremony (I think. Ok, I know the photos is from January, but I'm not sure which function she was attending.)
Who's my second-favourite Rosario?
Need you have even asked?
