    I’m on a movie watching hiatus- I have too much going on between work and caring for my sick dog. I did need to check out the only best picture nominee I hadn’t seen before the Oscars tonight, and for me this didn’t do it.

The intimate setting, and seeing Madonna get to be her not-always-self-aware self with more audience interaction, worked for me. I also loved seeing her with her kids.

At the end of the day, 150 minutes of fan service works amazing for the audience it’s servicing, and maybe not so well for the people who are like “who the fuck is that?” It was mostly very entertaining though, and definitely didn’t feel like 2…
