Yea, I saw it. Yea, so what?! My girlfriend and her friend wanted to go so I did, so what?! STOP JUDGING ME! Anyway, it wasn't even that bad. In fact, it wasn't even bad at all and that kinda halfway scares me. To be honest, half the time I find chick flicks to be more entertaining then "dude" flicks. I'm gonna come right out and say that I thought this movie was way better than Iron Man 2, but I guess that's not saying much. Saying Sex and the City 2 is better than Iron Man 2 is like saying an OK day at the office is better than a shotgun blast to the face.

Sex and the City 2 is what it is, it's obviously a "chick flick", but I don't think it'll bore the guys either. They might find it a bit awkward when the ladies in the theater (99% of the audience) scream out in shock at certain plot points but I guess that's to be expected. I really didn't think I'd be entertained much but I was. I never found myself bored at all actually.

What I noticed about the film though is how many of the ladies (99% of the audience) not only swooned over the hot dudes and their nude asses but also over the jewels, dresses and big walk-in closets. I could not help but wonder, would they care as much if Sex and the City 2 was a reflection of the current times, focusing on the Great Depression part two? If Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte were bums on the street, would people still wanna watch? If all four of them were found in this film with jobs lost, fine jewels and designer dresses sold to help pay for their drug habits and strung out in NYC would it still be Sex and the City? It seems that a big part of the film is about seeing the glitz and glamor lifestyle of rich New Yorkers. I guess I can't blame girls for swooning over such things, some of my male brethren swoon over titties, nice cars and explosions in their favorite films.

I guess it just seems a tad bit lame when half the reason some people watch a film is to get bombarded with advertising. It feels like with some of these movies that I'm watching MTV Cribs or Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous with a little story thrown in. I guess it makes sense though, they gotta keep that little dangling piece of cheese in front of us or how else we gonna keep that wheel going? How else we gonna get out of this economic slump? Man, this review just got pretty dang depressing...

With a franchise like Sex and the City it almost doesn't matter if the movie is good or not, ladies wanna see the four of them together. It's just like how dudes wanna see Bruce Willis as John McClane or Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones, no matter how bad it sucks. Lucky for the ladies, this one ain't bad.

The Beginning: Making Episode 1
The Beginning: Making Episode 1

It's not a secret that Star Wars Episode 1 is not only a horrible Star Wars movie, it's just a horrible movie in general. Sitting through it is a task, it's so dense and filled with boring political plot points, bad acting and computer graphics. It feels more like an ILM portfolio showcasing CG techniques rather than a film.

I can remember as a kid watching it for the first time and leaving the theater confused. I thought maybe I wasn't watching as careful as I should have been? I dunno what it was but I felt like I missed something because, its Star Wars, isn't it supposed to be good? I thought, "Did I just black out for most of that movie? Was I daydreaming the whole time?" I begged my parents to take me again, so I could see what I surely missed but they wouldn't take me. I had to wait for it to come out on video when I finally realized that it wasn't just me, this shit really does just suck.
