At the Movies

I've seen two films in the past week: Indiana Jones and Sex and the City. Neither of them are life-changing, major cinematic treasures. But they're good summer fun.

I am now going to discuss these movies. So, if you don't want to know a single thing about them, stop reading now and I'll see you later.

First, my boy Indy. Let me just say I L-O-V-E Indiana Jones. Raiders of the Lost Ark is my favorite movie, ever. It's so good to see Mr. Ford again. I loved how they didn't try to hide his age. I also loved the addition of Mutt Williams. And it cracked me up how Spielberg managed to get in his favorite alien stuff. My only complaint is that we really needed to see more Marion Ravenwood. Karen Allen is so saucy and sharp, I wanted to see more.

Now, my girls. I can't help myself, these women of SATC are so funny, flawed, idealistic, and gorgeous. I love the clothes. I love the narrative. I love their chemistry. I loved this movie!! I thought it was well-done. Again, this is not serious, life-changing, cinema as art. But I appreciated how the movie dealt with forgiveness. That's good stuff. And Carrie and Big are awesome (although I wonder, along with other reviewers, if Mr. Noth has had some work done? That skin was looking very smooth). And I'm a big sucker for a happy ending. Come on - life is stinkin' hard - at least I can live vicariously through the movies. Oh, and I know people are saying Jennifer Hudson can't act? I thought she was great. Sweet and fresh, and real.

Good times.

I thought the same thing about Chris Noth! Something about his face didn't look natural to me.

I too loved the movie! Although it made me wish for a closet full of Manolos. :)
