you mean movies for women and gay men.>seriously, most of the “reviews” and hype i saw for sex and the city, were from gay men. and not the respectable kind – the “omg, here he comes”, wears make up and carries a purse kinda gay guys. the ones that are surprised that you know they’re gay, when the rest of the fucking world is going “duh!”, kind of gay guy.>ok, i’m done making gay jokes, now.>but i kind of think these kinds of banal spectacles are doing so well because of the gay factor.>in traditional, arbitrary courtship rituals, the man will pick out the movie to go see, because he hasn’t been whipped enough to be dragged to standard chick-fare. but the rules change when you’ve got two men going on a date. and if you think i’m gay-bashing, i’m not; merely making an observation.>and i still think you should go see hellboy 2.
the worst thing about this movie, I thought, was the execution!>I mean, come on, they got a bunch of big-name actors to make people show up…. then 1) those big-name actors proceed to act badly, and 2) those big-name actors proceed to sing badly!>>who wins there?>>I mean, Pierce Brosnan (sp?) and the other men do reasonable delivery, but they can’t sing. Seyfried is the only one who sings well enough to have a major role in a musical. And Streep…. she is just put in lots of uncomfortable physical comedy situations and otherwise prances that it’s just embarrassing. >>so for me, I was willing to handle the sitcom-ish plot, but the way they pulled it off….
Enjoyed the movie though the Directing was pretty bad. Why film in Greece if you don’t make use of the locations?>Choreography could have been so much better.>The performances were what made it for me….and the ABBA music.
Wow. Very interesting take ~ and review.>>I saw “Momma Mia!” because my editor wanted me to review it. I don’t even like ABBA. I saw it back to back with the “Dark Knight.” >>I usually hate movies heavy laden with stars. However, I liked this movie!! Yes, it’s silly. But after the darkness of “Dark Knight” perhaps my soul just needed to be washed in dancing and singing on a Greek Island. >>A lot of critics have been harsh on this one, but I’m standing firm I think it’s an entertaining movie – not going to win any Oscars… but it was just plain fun. >>~Heidi>http://www.HeidiTown.com
