Yep...my sis came by me & we went to see Sex And The City. I wasn't a huge fan of the series...didn't watch regularly so...but I do love Chris Noth! ;-)
Now if you did not see the movie & plan to....stop here & come back after you see it!
Ok, so it was "Ok"...I don't know seemed like even 2+ hours is not enough to go into depth for all the characters. It lacked the depth I wanted. And they did a bit on Steve but I wish they did more on the guys side...I know it is about female friends but it would be great for these females to see more of what they men go through & vice versa! They could have done sooooo much more.
I loved what John was really about "I just want to be with you". That was lovely. I agree on the "We" vs "I" which I think all of them struggle in life about. I liked the message at the end about labels also! That was good but still found it too much about fashion etc....but that is not my life & what I value so...
I really liked that John did want the romance part...from my experience there ae many men who want the romance also. That is when you see their lovely spirit. And you know what they say...ignore everything he says & just watch what he does! :-) I sometimes forget that but when I do notice that they always come around you so that they walk on the side where the cars would be to protect you...man nothing like that feeling. When they go out of their way & find something you didn't even know existed but it is something you just love...woo hoo. I think Carrie missed that initially & Samantha just totally misses it. I think the writers really missed something with Samantha...they do not delve enough into her character to see why she would rather be attached...and after 5 yrs...I didn't buy it. There was so much more they could of done with her...they hinted at couple of different paths they could of taken...I mean the way they left her...where will she be at 55 yrs? There are some deeper issues she is not dealing with that is for sure!
And John being there to save her shoes....WOW!!!! He is dreamy also...and all I got to say is if guys look like that in their 50s I'm still willing to go older...noooo not just looks it is just personality with it. It isn't that I don't care about that but there are some mighty fine looking men out there that are very ugly guys. Yes, same true for women. John's character is soooo sweet...worried he would screw up again after 2 & also needing to go in with her...ahhhh I just melted! I'd love that! The "just you & me" YEP! I totally agree!
It also is so true how sometimes things get screwed up by texts & phone messages being missed or ignored, things don't always get discussed the way they should. I know people do get scared sometimes & don't say what they want to say either & others do influence them. Sad! What could be? I know you don't know for sure but to "want to" and not take the chance just seems so sad to me. Take the risk at least you know you tried.
I love the simply vows she says he can say...'I will always love you'.
Here is the Beethoven letter from the movie:
Though still in bed, my thoughts go out to you, my Immortal Beloved, now and then joyfully, then sadly, waiting to learn whether or not fate will hear us - I can live only wholly with you or not at all - Yes, I am resolved to wander so long away from you until I can fly to your arms and say that I am really at home with you, and can send my soul enwrapped in you into the land of spirits - Yes, unhappily it must be so - You will be the more contained since you know my fidelity to you. No one else can ever possess my heart - never - never - Oh God, why must one be parted from one whom one so loves. And yet my life in V is now a wretched life - Your love makes me at once the happiest and the unhappiest of men - At my age I need a steady, quiet life - can that be so in our connection? My angel, I have just been told that the mailcoach goes every day - therefore I must close at once so that you may receive the letter at once - Be calm, only by a calm consideration of our existence can we achieve our purpose to live together - Be calm - love me - today - yesterday - what tearful longings for you - you - you - my life - my all - farewell. Oh continue to love me - never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved.
I'm still thinking...so maybe more later... ;-)
