The big movie – Sex in the city II

Sex and the City II
Yes I am a little behind, no wait, a little late in watching this movie. Behind probably wouldn’t be the best word to use when talking about that movie. I saw a little more behind than I wanted too.

Now what was all the yap about? Why did no one like the movie? It follows right along with the history of the show and the last movie. No major plots that we don’t already know about. It’s just eye candy. Fun, beautiful people, nice scenery and goofy clothes.
And who didn’t see trouble coming letting Samantha go to Abu Dhabi?
Of course Carrie and Aiden would kiss. I’m really not sure why Mr. Big, oh excuse me, John as he is now called would even be upset. It’s totally in character for her. I’m pretty sure that if I were in that situation I would do the same thing. Come on she married John after dumping Aiden. It was just a kiss and she stopped it right there and told John in an honest heart- felt apology.
I was happy to see that Miranda and Steve had gotten back together. I thought the scene where Charlotte and Miranda let out all of their secrets was a completely honest scene. It wasn’t done in a mean, belittling way. They both stated their great love for their children. I think it would be perfectly natural for a professional woman like Miranda too also want to continue her career as long as it works for her family.
And any mother can relate to Charlotte’s little Rose non-stop crying. Maybe not the nanny, braless or otherwise. Both of those situations would be difficult to deal with. Well not really, you can just tell the nanny she has to wear a bra. A really good thick bra. And thick turtleneck shirts.
Yes Standford’s wedding was about as over the top as one could get. I was about as shocked as could be when Liza busted a move to the Beyonce song, Put a Ring on it. That was hysterical, although she didn’t do a bad job. I would have loved to have swans at my wedding(s). It was like a great 1950’s musical. Perfect for Standford. I can’t imagine it any other way.
I thought Carrie and John reconciled their difference in a very real, sweet and honest way. I love that he gave her a black diamond. I love that he forgave her and I love even more that she realized she had her dream. The life she was always in search of.
So, yes I enjoyed the movie other than being, and seeing a little too much behind.


Julie and Julia

Fabulous! Julie and Julia is a most wonderful movie. From the best actors to great scenery this movie has it all.
Meryl Streep as always is highly entertaining and gives a spot on performance. She is a joy to watch. Even a total non-cook like me might be inspired to try a thing or two.
Paris was magical and I am sure that I would love it as much as Julia Child did. Her ever bubbling joy was fun to watch. She was like a child on Christmas morning all the time.
The film even managed to make a dreary dull apartment in Queens look lovely and interesting. I found Julie to be very down to earth and real. Very likeable.
There was only a small bit at the end of the movie that I found disturbing, but I won’t reveal that bit for those of you who haven’t seen the movie.
