The Accountant.

0

My poor brother lmao. My poor fucking brother. I drive him literally insane. One day bro, I’ll pay you back. I promise. Anyways. We caught the 8pm showing of The Accountant at The Grove, late af. That might have been why I was so confused the entire movie. But yo, this movie was lit. It was really intense. I think every accountant out there should watch it, just cause. Like their boss should take the company as an outing haha.

Wiki: Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a mathematics savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Using a small-town CPA office as a cover, he makes his living as a freelance accountant for dangerous criminal organizations. With a Treasury agent (J.K. Simmons) hot on his heels, Christian takes on a state-of-the-art robotics company as a legitimate client. As Wolff gets closer to the truth about a discrepancy that involves millions of dollars, the body count starts to rise.

So Ben Affleck kills it per usual. And Anna Kendrick in the movie was tripping me out. I’ve only seen her play funny roles, like bizarre comedy roles haha. So seeing her all serious in a movie was weird. Plus kept noticing how tiny she was. Like I wonder how she is in person lmao. Okay I’ll stop. She did good.

This movie caught my eye particularly bc I used to be a math major. Like… I fucking loved that shit. Algebra was so fun to me lmao. I’m so sad. I always say I feel like I had so much potential but then I discovered partying and that was the end of that. My brain is fried. In reality, I transferred to UCLA as a math major but that shit was way too hard. It was a joke. Not that philosophy was much easier, but my ego wasn’t shot from getting back 30%’s on the midterms. This was AFTER I studied my ass off.

Wow anyways. What they don’t tell you in the plot is that Ben is autistic. It’s a crazy aspect of the film but it was extremely eye-opening. No spoiler alert, pretty sure it’s in the trailer haha. Definitely a solid movie. A little over 2 hours. I’d recommend it. Again, esp for you accountants. And I feel like a lot of my friends are. They work the craziest longest hours. Mad respect.

Today was a fucking Monday if it ever was one. I couldn’t sleep til late (stan) so work was a definite struggle. Took a nap in my car on my lunch. Please tell me other people do that. I feel like the minority.

Went straight to the dentist for a checkup. Went to the doctor to pick up my scripts. Went to Core Power Yoga 2. That shit had me sweating profusely. So necessary though.

Then went home to get my laptop because I had to go to Verizon to get a new iPhone. I completely shattered my screen last night, which is starting to feel like a damn curse. I had a free upgrade (my bro’s line, again, ty) and literally drove all the way home so I could back up my shit at the store.

BUT IT WOULDN’T BACK UP. LITERALLY. Kept saying “turn off Find my iPhone” when it was off on all devices. Verizon told me I had to go to Apple cause they were stumped. So of course, The Grove, which is the busiest Genius Bar in all of LA, verbatim from one of their workers. The dude was nice and tried to help me, but couldn’t. Cool. I had to come back in the AM right when they open. As if I have time for this.

Sorry guys. My blog is literally for me to complain about my unnecessarily dramatic life. It’s like, drama with myself. Lmao.

And then I fucked up and didn’t tell my bro I was at The Grove so he drove all the way to the Beverly Center cause that’s where Verizon was. Smh. So sorry bro. You hate me.

The popcorn at the movies was stale. Goodbye.

Don’t Breathe.

I’m actually on the verge of tears rn haha. My laptop is broken. My mouse pad is all types of fucked up and it won’t read my hand touch. I legit just tried to get it to work for like 30 min. Just sitting there hoping it would miraculously heal itself. Unfortunately, not sure technology works that way :(. Man I’m so sad rn haha. Can’t afford a new comp man. That’s like straight up rent money right there.

ANWYAYS. Let’s talk about this FUCKING crazy movie. Don’t Breathe. If you’re wondering how I’m writing this, I’m on the comp back home. YAS I’m in the bay. And yes I hate PC’s haha. I legit feel off rn. Another reason I don’t want a new Mac is cause there are no more CD drives on the new models. I need to make my mixes for the whip man. First world problems.

First off, I can’t talk about my night, because it was way too personal. It was probably one of the biggest reality checks I’ve had in a minute though. The truth can really hurt.  I shared with one of my hgs, and it didn’t feel too great. Like it’s something I’m very not proud of. Sigh.

Anyways, I was legit on a high after this movie haha. Shout out to my bay homeboy for rocking with me tonight. He brought his little sis who I fell in love with. I love family outings haha. It made me really miss my bro, who’s turning up in Chicago rn. His life man. Works hard, plays hard. That’s the motto.

I barely got back in town but I had to make the 10:25pm showing at Century Cinemas 16 on Shoreline in Mountain View. These theaters have been around forever but they recently remodeled and added reclining seats and a bar. Literally so lit up in there. I could barely find parking, and my big ass minivan don’t fit in most spots. SMH. I legit squeeze lmao. People prob hate me.

So, I thought all theaters in the bay were open seating. Not these ones. Shout out to tickets only being $13.25 though. Yo, tell me why my seat was broken. I was all super lit being on this super comfy leather couch, but then my seat wouldn’t recline. I wanted my money back. Jk. Kinda.

Okay so I purposely didn’t watch the trailer for this ha. All I know is that it scared off a lot of people. Super lit though, Cozz, the Dreamville rapper, does the theme song for it. It made me want to see the film more, obviously. It got 86%, super well deserved. I actually was expecting a horror movie with like zombies and shit but na haha. This was some real life ish.

Plot from Rotten Tomatoes: A trio of reckless thieves breaks into the house of a wealthy blind man, thinking they’ll get away with the perfect heist. They’re wrong.

I guess I coulda told you that haha. Premuch these kids break into a blind man’s house, and shit goes haywire. Like, do not underestimate a blind man. I always heard if you’re missing a sense, you make up for it in the other 4 sense. V interesting.

This movie was just bomb throughout. Hella action and hella plot twists. It’s about an hour and a half, perfect length for a scary movie. We really enjoyed it. Like we were talking about it all the way to our cars on the way out lmao. I’d def recommend it. It was well thought out, and not just another cheesy horror movie. There were some parts I jumped at, but that wasn’t even the point.

I’m excited to be home but my life is literally the hottest mess it’s been. I need to figure it out.

Question though, what is happiness? Is it subjective?

Thank goodness for movies.
