I am afraid I fail today’s challenge as I can’t find any movie which fits into it. I mean for a movie buff like me movies are part of my life. In certain age I like certain movie genre. For example now that I am a middle age woman I am not attracted to Vampire inspired movies such as The Twilight Saga. If I was young now perhaps I would have liked it.
Based on how I see and watch the movies I am aware that some of my favorite movies from my youth are not my favorite anymore, but I do not hate them. Movies I used to like in my teen and early 20es years are: Gremlins, About last night, Top Gun, Karate Kid, Heathers, Beverly Hills Cop, The Princess Bride, Ferris Bueller’s day off, Back to the future, Ghostbusters, The Breakfast Club and many more. Looking back at that list, those movies are not my favorite anymore but I don’t hate them.
To answer today’s challenge I guess I’d pick Sex and the city (SATC) the movie part 2. I don’t hate this movie nor I love it. I like the first one in a way that it fulfills the curiosity after the tv series end. But SATC 2 is over the top. What I noticed is the ladies change their clothes in almost every scene when they are in Dubai. Surely they don’t travel light, do they?
For men out there, the reasons of SATC’s succes are: 4 best girlfriends forever, fashion and men. What I find silly and rather unlogic is how Samantha Jones (Kim Cattral) behaves while in Dubai. As a succesful PR executive Samantha must have known the coleur locale in the Middle – East. This refers to how to properly dressed and behave.
SATC 2 is so silly in my opinion compared to the first one. This is a modern princesses story sugar coated in exotic location, haute couture fashion in the desert and presented with best friends forever message. At the end, everybody is beautiful and happy. In real life we know this doesn’t always happen this way.
