This film shows us how different people in New York spend their New Year’s Eve. We share the laughs and nice moments, maybe even a few tears shed as well.
I Don’t Know How She Does It . . . is all based around character Kate (SJP) who must find a balance between work and her family life.
As it coming up to September I thought that a new monthly feature on my blog is going to contain the up and coming releases for the UK in that month. This would therefore be the films that I would also hope to have the chance of seeing at my local Cineworld cinema . . . obviously if a limited release happens, then I struggle to see the smaller films. I think we should now start to see some better films coming out after the so called summer blockbuster season is now over as we enter September.
We see a wide range of genre’s opening in the month of September, so you really do have quite a broad choice of films to choose every week. This is something that has to be better than the summer which seemed to be just comic book film after comic book film . . . which I do love but it’s nice to have some different types of films out for a bit more variety!
Vampire films are still classed as being very in at the moment, although I wouldn’t complain with Colin Farrell being a vampire! But this one is going for the mix between comedy and horror, which we don’t really see very often. But not long to wait to find out how this film is!
My previous blog post about Sarah Jessica Parker’s new film ‘I Don’t Know How She Does It’ got me thinking about her career on the silver screen. She has been in quite a lot of films now, but can you actually remember many of them? I am guessing for a lot of people the answer will probably be known. Most well-known for her role as Carrie Bradshaw in the Sex and the City TV Show.
When looking at her different roles to make this list, one thing that I seemed to notice is that not many of her characters are liked by the other characters. So that probably means that audiences aren’t really too fond on them either. That could possibly be a reason why SJP is not very well received by critics and movie watchers. Although I will always consider myself a fan after Sex and the City, and always hope that she gets some good movies to appear in.
I am in the minority in my love for Sarah Jessica Parker, yes I am a massive Sex and the City fan (more the TV show than the films) and actually do enjoy watching a lot of her films. In recent years they have been films which are very easy to watch and often enjoyable if you do not want something too serious. I think this film looks very charming and as a woman I do like to see something where a woman is in charge of everything!
Harry Potter mania headed stateside last night for the NYC premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.
The downside of going to the cinema once maybe twice a week is that you will end up going to see some bad films at some point. Or maybe not just bad, but disappointing after they have been built up so much. I have managed to see 41 films from the year 2010, so picked by 10 worst from those!
Some of the films may come as a bit of a shock on the worst film list, but just how I felt watching the films. The more I have looked over my list the more it appears disappointment set in whilst really looking forward to seeing the films.
Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte returned to the big screen for a second outing this weekend.
That opening sentence just shows that I did indeed start this review the day after the film was released. It really was something I had been looking forward to since the first movie finished!
The third poster for sex and the city 2 has been released featuring all four of the girls.
Following on from my top 10 best films of 2009 . . . I decided to list the 10 films I found to be the worst of 2009. I am pretty sure people will agree with a lot of the films on the list. But definitely have one film which will probably surprise everyone as well.
What were your worst films of 2009?
The second poster for the up and coming Sex and the City movie has been released. I think I actually like it better than the first one. Bring on the end of May!!!
A second trailer as recently been released for SATC 2. Which as a massive SATC fan does make me really happy! Not long to go now until the film is released 28th May I really cannot wait!

My thoughts and opinions on the Oscar’s will be coming in the next couple of days when I manage to finish watching the ceremony. So I decided to search for pictures of the winners, my favorite actors and actresses along with pictures of the winners.
In New York City, an estranged couple who witness a murder are relocated to small-town Wyoming as part of a witness-protection program.
The awards which like to honour the worst films of the year! Yes its all just a bit of fun and to laugh at really. But the Razzie nominations were released last night, yes the day before the Oscar nominations are due out. Interesting as Sandra Bullock could end up as the best and worst actress of the year . . . you see what they have done there.
They even have worst movie, actor and actress of the decade awards to give out.
What do you make of the Razzies?
Check out the nominations
I cannot believe that I have been slipping so much over the holiday period to actually miss the first trailer which has been released for SATC2. Not really much shown in the trailer expect for some of the outfit’s and nice shots of Manhattan. But as you may already know I am a massive SATC fan so anything thats released for the movie is very good in my world. So here is the trailer:
The first poster has been released for the second Sex and the City movie which comes out next year, I really cannot wait for this movie to come out. Yes if you have never read my blog before you will probably not know that I am a massive SATC fan. I like the “Carrie on” tagline on the bottom with a big 2 in the background. No need to have Sex and the City written on it.
Because I am such a massive fan of Sex and the City (SATC) and have seen all of the episodes loads and loads of times. Along with the movie, and with the build up to the second movie in full swing because of all the on-set pictures. I decided that I am going to revisit every episode thanks to my DVD collection which just happens to be in a small shoe box . . . yes I have the full lot all in one box. So I am going to review each episode . . . This could take a while or it could not take too long at all. So . . . watch this space . . .
Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda are going to be watched and enjoyed yet again, along with their many men over the seasons and years and of course Mr. Big.
I will be putting in my views on the main issues in each episode.
A second poster has been released for “Did You Hear About The Morgans?” starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Hugh Grant.
Anything with Sarah Jessica Parker in makes me smile . So here is the poster for her up and coming film with Hugh Grant, about a couple who witness a crime in NYC and are relocated to a small town my the witness protection programme.
SATC is my favorite EVER TV Show. I have seen every episode so many times, have the shoebox box set of the whole series. So when they announced that the movie was going to made. I was so happy about it, I even went to see it twice in the cinema when it first came out last year. Then when I went to NYC last year I was in heaven in the HBO shop buying lots of SATC merchandise.
I thought it would be good to have a post about my favorite TV Shows, which I have loved for years now and still watch over and over again. Yes they still make me happy and make me smile (and probably the odd episode makes me cry). There is not many shows that I really love and watch over and over. I can only think of 4 which fit into this category.
Sex and the City
It has been my ultimate favorite for so long now, I used to watch it every night as it was on paramount comedy over and over. From series 1 to 6 and when it was done, it used to start over again. With the addition of the movie and then the second movie which is due to start filming soon, this is just an obsession of mine that will never get old and go away. I appreciate SATC so much, I adore Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda a lot. I see different parts of each of them in myself and I am sure most other women do too. It it obviously is about one of my favorite things . . . sex, haha. But the friendships that is in the movie are just so fantastic as well I love it. I hope the friends I have now are my Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda . . . as believe it or not they are quite similar to them and myself with Carrie, I even have my own version of Mr Big. Yes it is all going to be heartache in that department.
The Golden Girls
“Thank you for being a friend” is the theme song to this show and its just such a nice theme song to have. I think when everyone reaches the stage of there lives which the Golden Girls are in, they will be saying thank you for being a friend to the people who are still around them, as I am assuming that it will more than likely be your friends. A group of retired women living together, who would really have thought it would have been a massive hit? But it really was in the 80′s. Yes I am too young to know it from the first time around, but I love it a lot and used to watch it when ever it was on and even set it to record. I adore how funny it is, and possibly SATC girls when they are older?
The ultimate favorite of the 90′s and it will always be one of my favorites. I still watch it when ever it is on to this day (which is like every day, on some channel, haha). I just do not find myself getting bored of “Friends” like ever. Its still funny no matter how many times you have seen the one where . . . I grew up with the friends guys and it was very sad when they decided to call it a day and the series was over. I think it could have still lasted a few more seasons. I wouldn’t say no to a movie version even if it does not sound the best idea in the world, but who cares it would still be amazing its friends.
Will & Grace
A guy gay and a straight girl who pretty much go on like a married couple, throw in another gay guy who is very camp and a woman with a high pitched squeaky voice and your onto a winner! Karen and Jack are probably the real stars of Will and Grace. They are so hilarious together and just make you laugh so much with the stupid things they say and do throughout the series. They defiantly provide my favorite moments in the show. The guest appearances on this were fantastic as well, Michael Douglas episode is my all time favorite.
As you may know by now that I love SJP and SATC especially her character Carrie Bradshaw. So to read this news is just so cute !!!
Sarah Jessica Parker hid her shyness from Sex And The City bosses – because she thought it would cost her the role of Carrie Bradshaw.
The actress rose to fame as cocktail-drinking party girl and New York newspaper columnist Bradshaw in the hit U.S. series.
She felt uncomfortable swearing in the role and was left shocked with the amount of explicit content included in the show.
But she refused to let television bosses know she was so clean-cut, fearing they would think she was the wrong person for the part.
She says, “If the audiences had known my true feelings about some of the sexual content in Sex And The City, they may have felt I wasn’t the right person to be in such a series. I just don’t drink, that’s part of the problem. I don’t like the taste of it and I don’t drink to relax.
“It has always been that way. I’ve never smoked anything other than the occasional cigarette in my whole life – and have never taken drugs of any kind.”
And Parker, who had a no-nudity clause written into her contract for the show, also had to adjust to the amount of sex scenes in each episode.
She adds, “I was thrilled that the others did the scenes so well and they looked great. But I have to deal with my own modesty. I wasn’t comfortable with the vulgar language, either. I thought that, because Carrie was a writer, she would be able to use better language than she did.”
The main draw for me for this movie had to be that Sarah Jessica Parker was in it, and as it turned out her character was actually the most like-able. So the title of the movie is “Smart People” that is what it is basically about, two smart people in particular being Dennis Quaid and Ellen Page. I am really liking Ellen Page from the three movies I have now seen her in (might be more, but I can think of three right now). She is very good being sarcastic and managing to be funny in that way.
