I have total respect for Sex and the City on HBO. Great TV writing, satire and social commentary there. Plus New York - the city - as a main character. I love New York! Then SATC went Hollywood. The movie was fun to watch, but it did make my eyes roll a lot a bit....
Now we know it's a cash cow too good not to milk. There's a sequel out this May! Heehee! The sand scenes in the trailer made my eyeballs roll out of my face. But am I watching this? Hell yeah. I am a very, very shallow girl.
Date Night looks fun too. Tina Fey's character is also more relatable to me, just that my husband is way hotter than Steve Carrel. Then there's Mark Wahlberg without a shirt and James Franco being funny!
Quick flashback and props to movies I enjoyed in 2009 -- Where the Wild Things Are, Up, Bad Lieutenant (with the tragic-comic kick-ass performance of Nicolas Cage), Moon, Star Trek, District 9, 500 Days of Summer, Coco Chanel (the TV movie with Shirley Maclaine), September Issue, Gomorrah, Invictus, The Hurt Locker. Hmm... what else... how can I forget -- Jay and Kimmy Dora.
Tonight, Pappy and I escape reality, watch something the kids' aren't allowed to see, and make ourselves miserable with the movie adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's novel The Road. I just bet Viggo Mortensen is going to make me cry.... Yay, date night!
