Sex and the City (2008) – review

DVB – italian audio track

Long story short: sex and love affaires of four 40-some ladies in the Big Apple

OK, this is not the kind of movie I usually see, but you know… sometimes you need something completely different, so… I was used to watch the series some years ago, and I must admit I liked it quite much.

With this movie, something of the original series is lost… don’t know, it’s difficult to spot what… maybe the music, the comments… the story is interesting enough, but it’s too long for a single movie… it’s kind of stretched episode; but a story that could fill easily 30 minutes with a fast pace, is hard to fill 145 minutes… with this, I don’t want to say that it IS it, but just it is what I thought about.

The girls are kind and pretty, acting is good, but loughter were less than what expected; wonderful locations, music not so present as it should be;at least, there were some spicy shots here and there to keep interest alive until the end – I liked the naked redhead…

All in all, a decent comedy about friendship, sex and love stories that intersecate each other in strange and sometimes unexpected ways; a must-to-be-seen for all series’ lovers and fashion victims!

My vote:6/10

The Moth Diaries (2011) – review

DVB PAL FTA – italian audio track

Long story short: a new strange girl arrives in a single-sex school, and she’s troublesome.

Yesterday we (me and my wife) saw a trailer on TV about a movie that seems interesting… something with vampire, perhaps?

“Let’s watch it!”, she said… this often is a reason to NOT watch a movie, but you know? sometimes I’m good enough, so let’s give it a chance.

Well, what I must say? I thought to watch a vampire movie – we love this kind of films – but after half an hour, almost nothing happened… and, after that, few interesting things has happened… actors are quite convincing, but the story itself is not; SFX are almost non-existent; music – the few – is not that bad…

My advice: even if it’s not the worst movie I’ve seen, avoid to watch it, until you like boring and slow story about girls, alive and dead…

My vote: 3/10 (and I’m good today!)
