I'm a self-absorbed Bengali-Torontonian;
Fish comes to me raw, wrappend in seaweed, not cooked in curry;
I love watching thunderstorms and rain;
Sad endings make more sense to me than happy ones;
I hate empty walls.

    Thanks! You are my visitor number,


    Dry spell

    Two reasons I'm wary about the 'Sex and The City' movie-
    1) If the last 'X-Files' movie was anything to be judged by, TV series made into movies don't work. They have the look of a regular episode extended over an hour, minus commercial breaks.
    2) I'm scared of the sheer number of belts-that-hold up-nothing I'll have to see.

    You see, the show was as much about fashion as it was about the not-so-taboo-anymore topics that the women discussed. It set trends, not that I was ever a fan of Carrie's weird fashion sense. Sure there are three other leading women as well, but really, who could see what anyone else was wearing with the giant flowers/tutus/crazy feathered hats/accessories Carrie pulled from her seemingly tiny closet?
    Now for the movie version, the trailers and production shots just keep showing abundance of the cinched waist belts over everything on everyone! Go ahead, google some images from the movie and you'll see what I'm talking about.
    It's like the design team was thinking, "Hmm what would make the 40something leading ladies seem trendy and appeal to a larger younger audience? Yes! put some belts on them!"
    Maybe it was THE thing the summer they were shooting it, but people, if every girl on the street over the age of 13 is wearing it, the belt trend is dead. It has expired; ceased to be- LET IT GO! LET IT BLOODY GO!
    Plus it is never a good sign for a movie when the trailers give away 90% of the storyline.
    Having said that, I will still, 100%, go watch it.
    20%- for all the witty repartee and frank discussions on romance and s_x, which are highly entertaining to watch with the girlfriends.
    80% - because I'm haven't been to the theatres for a Hollywood flick since February!
    Yes, the 23 year old Me would have been horrified at this lapse in movie watching.
    What can I say but unless they had come up with a fourth edition of the 'Bourne' series, I was just not interested.
    The theatres have been charging a lot more for the utter crap that the movie industry has churned out. So, if it's not gonna have any awesome special effects or stars that I care to see, I'd rather rent two movies for the same price.

    Can one ever get tired of watching Matt Damon run around be aloof and dashing in a torn sweater? Nope!
    Until then, the new 'Indiana Jones' movie will have to do, I suppose. It has all the elements of the perfectly entertaining movie on big screen- action, camp, improbably story line and Harrison Ford with a whip.
    Snap that!
