Discussion Point

Let’s cut straight to the heart of the week’s news: Do you plan to see the SATC movie? Why or why not?

I had to ask the google what the "satc movie" was, so no. I did see a few episodes, back in the day, but mostly I didn't have HBO; I liked it well enough, I suppose, so it's not anitpathy so much as apathy.

Didn't see the series, so don't care about the movie. Women in five thousand dollar shoes -- can't relate.

Ditto narya, except I knew what SATC meant. I enjoyed the TV show, but not enough to spend $9 at the theater. I suppose I'll borrow it when it gets to Netflix.

"Indiana Jones," however, is another matter. I want to see it, but I don't, because it probably isn't very good, or at least not as good as the originals. What to do, what to do...

[I had too many "though"s in the previous comment, and it was bothering me.]

One of fave local movie reviewers called it "Indiana Jones and the AARP." He said it was okay--didn't make much sense, but there was lots of running around/action. I don't remember the last time I saw a movie AT the movies, though. I think it was with Chuck, so at least three years ago?

Narya, we're even. I'm always Googling things like "ITOH" and "IIRC" when I'm reading your blog. Incidentally, I just had to Google IIRC to make sure that was the correct combination of letters. ;)

Larry, I can't relate, either. Not to mention that they are New York women in $5,000 shoes. New Yorkers are another breed entirely.

Ann, Metflix is my plan as well.

I have a weird fascination-repulsion with SATC. The characters annoy the crap out of me, with their selfish, materialistic, narrow, silly ways; and yet, I can't stop watching. It's like eating junk food. I don't think I could stand it for 2.5 hours in the theater, but I will probably watch the DVD in small chunks someday.

Ann said...

Yeah, I can't relate, either, but there's something I find interesting about the characters. As pop culture. As stereotypes. As sociological entities.

Plus it amuses me that certain groups of people take the show so seriously. OMG, a completely fictional television program about WOMEN having SEX in a CITY!! To what is the world coming?

kStyle said...

Ann, I also find something interesting about the characters. It's like fictitious anthropology.

Oh, and people take SATC very seriously in other ways, too. Read about women weeping at "Carrie's stoop" in NYC:
