One man come in the name of love one man come and go one come he to justify one man to overthrow in the name of love what more in the name of love

This has been a pretty brilliant Monday so far. I stayed up til 6:30 this morning talking with my friend Melissa on my couch about our lives & some heartbreak that the both of us have endured. I finally got to bed this morning around 7am. I know, the life of a college student. My sister woke me up so very kindly around 11am & I wanted to stab her in the eye for doing so. But when I finally got over my grouchiness I hopped outta bed. We took the afternoon & saw the new Emily Blunt movie The Young Victoria, directed by Jean-Marc Vallée with a screenplay written by Oscar winner Julian Fellows.
I figured since it's Monday & I write about Music on Mondays on here I could also write about movies. Why not? Well the movie was beautiful & Emily Blunt is spectacular as the very young queen. To see the way she grew up & everything she was restricted from was so interesting. Rupert Friend plays Prince Albert & he definitely stole the scenes he was in. I was really surprised to see Paul Bettany in this movie. My sister & I love him. I just wish I would have liked him in this movie more. But all & all I was a complete girl through this whole movie, I'm not going to lie. I giggled & smiled at the romantic parts as Victoria & Albert waltzed across the ballroom floor together. The music in this movie was also very beautiful & I will probably run & get the soundtrack very soon. So if you want to see just a beautiful movie & smile, go see it. Happy Movie Monday. Oh listen to the song Pride, In The Name Of Love by U2. It's a great song for this MLK holiday.
