May 2008

Sex and the Pity

I was too tired to face the drunken hordes of Brighton last night, so I decided to just chill out and catch a late show of Sex and the City at the cinema near my hotel. There's no point in giving a review of any kind, since there are so many others out there who are actually bothering. (Overall? Meh.) I just have a handful of quick thoughts:

Stop the madness

The trailers playing before Sex and the City make me weep for the state of our culture, especially the wholly unnecessary remake of The Women. It was perfect the first time!

At least they decided not to include men in the cast this time. That was the tragic misstep of the secong unnecessary remake.

Yeah, I’m hardcore

Arm Tattoos

Hah! Imagine? I’m a pussycat, really.
