Movies about/starring women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
Sex and the City
Get carried away.
A New York writer on sex and love is finally getting married to her Mr. Big. But her three best girlfriends must console her after one of them inadvertently leads Mr. Big to jilt her.
A cinematic experience equivalent to goatse.
One of the worst films ever made. For starters, this concept is about 10 years dead. These actresses are too old, and none were particularly great to begin with. To make matters worse, the characters have become so completely out of touch with reality, it's amazing to me any non-millionaire would enjoy watching this film. Everyone here owns a large, beautiful apartment in Manhattan or on the beach in Los Angeles, they have hundreds of pairs of thousand-dollar shoes, they eat with no consequence and drink and have sex with random men like it's a bodily function (alright, I guess that last one technically is).
The core story of this film revolves around Carrie being left at the altar (or…
I really enjoyed HBO's Sex and the City - it was funny, raunchy, and full of awesome fashion moments! The first movie was an attempt to really wrap everything up for every character that did not get addressed when the series ended in 2004 and for the most part it works. Yes it's overly melodramatic at parts, but if you loved the show you should have been happy with this movie. It stays true to the characters and the feel of the world they created.
That sequel is a whole different unnecessary story.
** I usually don't log movies that I've watched on TV, but I'm never going to watch this again so I figured I'd make an exception**
This is what happens when you have a man write a film about women and how they view the world. I've never watched the "Sex and the City" TV series, but if it's anything like this I can't imagine enjoying it.
I find it funny that another female-led HBO series, "Girls", is accused of focusing on white people problems. At least that show focuses on women that struggle with making money- the ladies of "Sex and the City" are filthy stinking rich, and spend two and a half hour whining about their problems, only taking the steps necessary to solve them in the final twenty minutes. It's truly a painful experience.
It was on TV and I couldn't find the remote. (I was also too lazy to get up and turn off the TV) That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
shut up i'm weak
It's just...it's not good.
Late to the party, I recently finished the somewhat infamous HBO series which was fun but nothing amazing itself and naturally decided to polish off this first big-screen sequel to the show.
The film fails to translate the sense of speed, urgency and flighty fun that made the show enjoyable at its best, instead it's overlong, muddled and occasionally racist for good measure.
One highlight had to be Carrie's flip phone falling to the floor in slow motion.
I dread the next instalment.
The TV series was sometimes good, often great, and occasionally perfect. Apart from a self-indulgent runtime, this flick doesn't stray too far from that formula. And that's just fine... However... Despite several snippets of rumpy-pumpy being (obviously, and badly) cut over here to save the precious morals of the Vietnamese audience, the film is STILL too long. The extraneous length provides too much focus on drama (and greedy fashion lustfulness), to the detriment of humour (and THAT city). Hudson's character is sweet but completely unnecessary, and (despite being the most "real" of the quartet) Miranda is such a dour, sour cow we are left wondering why the hell Steve WANTS forgiveness from her. And the whole "Big" storyline..."Big" was always…
I knew this movie was probably going to be bad, but I wasn't expecting anything close to this. The casual biphobia, racism, transphobia and general shittiness of the TV series has always irked me but I'm ashamed to admit I still love watching it in spite of all that. I can't say the same for this movie. Here are a few thoughts I had (spoiler alert):
1. Honestly what did Carrie expect would happen with Big/John? She KNOWS he's incapable of committing and that he's all talk and no action. I'm devastated for her and I did have a bit of a cry but this isn't really a surprise.
2. Does Charlotte seriously think that all the food/water in Mexico…
Like the TV show, but on a way bigger budget and a lot more glamorous!
Still one of my favourites
