Not like I remembered…

Wednesday, April 24th, 2013

Now I know I read The Great Gatsby when I was a kid in school, I must have. I remember the book, the cover, the idea, and certain points of the story so well and though I get excited and a bit tingly over Leo with a cool new soundtrack as backup, this trailer is nothing like my memory.

Great Gatsby book cover 2

I’m thinking a quick re-read may be in my future before I see the movie. Do you like to read the books before you see the movie? I have to admit I usually don’t as the movie then never lives up, but in this case I think I will. It might be fun as I’ll not be reading it with Gatsby cast as Leo.

 

 

All the best,

I Lost My Mojo Baby!

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

Somewhere between Sunday and last night I must have come across Dr. Evil because it seems me and my Mojo have parted ways.

So now I’m on a mission… to get my mojo back.

Wish me luck!

He Who Shall Not Be Named…

So are you seeing the final Harry Potter this weekend? I sure hope I get a chance to. Fingers crossed the crowds in Freshchester thin out and I can get a ticket.

 

Happy Friday!

Sex and No City

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

So Wednesday already? How’d that happen?

Oh well that’s how it goes when you get a holiday Monday.  I did what I said and eased into the week by going to the spa for a bit yesterday. Well, you see once again while cleaning I found a gift from the lovey DH that was given to me almost a year ago for my birthday for a massage and a facial and it was about to expire (why do I keep doing that?). Ding dong me I went the whole year stressing and doing for everyone else and almost let this treat for myself slip away. I’m so glad that I didn’t. It was a little bit of heaven and a reminder to stop putting myself last on my list.

 

This last weekend like a ton of other folks I went to see Sex and The City 2 and sadly like a ton of other folks I walked away disappointed.

It was such an odd thing because I really pride myself on going against the grain of high faulting critics and being a big “go to a movie just for the entertainment” of it type of person. So after getting the DH to come with me to see it (he was one of 3 men in the theater on Friday night) I left trying to convince myself of the finer points.

“Well Samantha was Samantha. She was funny.” I told him enthusiastically as he looked at me oddly.  “And Charlotte looked good in most of her outfits.” Still odd looks and then my mind went to a scene where she’s making cupcakes in vintage Valentino and I had to then turn to my DH and admit “It wasn’t that good huh?”

“No” he said. “It wasn’t.”

To me this felt like an opportunity to dress the ladies up in inappropriate hats, spice tones and brights and pose them in the desert without a proper story. I mean I’m all for fun and all for fashion but this City girls need a proper story!

Now I’m not trying to discourage you all. Please go and see for yourself. There are things to see visually and parts that are fun. I’m just sad to say Sex without the City didn’t do it for me.

Waiting for my Prince

Saturday, May 29th, 2010

Oh come on. Am I gonna be the only 40 year old woman on line to see dishy Jake in this movie? I’m sure that’s not true. Fess up now.

 

I also despite review want to see SATC2. I mean I have to. I just do.  Then there is Eat, Pray, Love where I still can’t remember the best friend/Viola Davis character from the book but yes, I will be seeing that too.

What movies do you want to see this summer?
