Downtown St Petersburg Florida Building Boom

The building boom in Downtown St Petersburg Florida continues. The new Galaxy Hotel is going up, plus the Florida Craftsman Museum, a place called Osprey and another called the Hermitage. I’m assuming the last two are either condos or apartments.

Our Brand Is Crisis – Movie Review

Went to see the new Sandra Bullock movie ” Our Brand Is Crisis” at the Muvico Theater in Downtown St Petersburg Florida. Quite an interesting story as she is drawn into a political campaign in faraway Bolivia, where she must develop a winning campaign for a former president plotting a comeback. Mostly Hispanic actors in this story filmed in Puerto Rico and Bolivia.

Billy Bob Thornton gives a good performance as her rival who undercuts, betrays and back-stabs her so another candidate will win. Perhaps inspired by our own presidential election, it’s a fun escape to a foreign country for a lot less than the real thing.¬†www.ourbrandiscrisismovie.com
