rain and henry viii

it is *pouring* outside today. don’t get me wrong, we need the rain badly here. but, it’s insane the way it’s coming down right now. i left my umbrella in the car last night (you would think i would have remembered the forecast i read during the 5 p.m. news), so i really hope it slows down by the time i have to leave for work. otherwise, i may as well take a change of clothes with me!

in other news, we saw “the other boleyn girl” saturday night. they did a good job of condensing a *very* long book into two hours, and it was a pretty good movie. eric bana and natalie portman were fabulous, as was the actress who played queen catherine. in fact, i think it’s a shame it came out this early in the year because i could see them being nominated for oscars. on the negative side, it was slow in parts and in others moved way too fast. and, they left out a lot of details. but all in all, it was a good movie. i’m glad i went. have you seen this? if so, what did you think?

the best part of the movie, though, was the new theatrical trailer for the upcoming sex and the city movie. it comes out on may 30 (which is in 99 days, not that i’m counting down or anything), and i.can’t.wait. i loved the tv series, and have been waiting for the movie ever since it was announced. the only downside is that the trailer pretty much shows everything that happens! talk about ruining the element of surprised. at an rate, i’ll be there opening weekend with my (reluctant) hubby in tow unless stacey wants to go with me! anyone else planning on seeing this movie?

    Actually… I’m not interested in either of those movies. Sorry.

    I haven’t seen The Other Boleyn Girl yet. My book club is reading it now, and we’re all going to see the movie on April 5. I read the book several years ago, so I’m anxiously awaiting the movie. I’m glad to hear you liked it, because all the other reviews I’ve heard have been terrible. The critics apparently hated it, and the only other blogger I’ve read also didn’t like it. Hopefully, I’ll agree more with you.

    I cannot wait until Sex and the City movie comes out. I will be there opening weekend even if I have to buy tickets ahead of time. I own the whole boxed series and I watch it all the time over and over. I just love it. The girls lift my spirits everytime!!!!

    I am about to start The Other Boleyn Girl (book), so I’m putting off the movie until then.

    And, yes, I will absolutely be going to see Sex and the City, although I’ll go with a posse of girlfriends, much to AS’s delight.

    I’m counting down the days, too. And, duh … of course I’ll go with you! Joe can come, too. Ha! 🙂

    I was wondering how “The Other Bolelyn Girl” would turn out. I may have to see it soon.

    Thanks for the review… I can’t wait to see TOBG. I’ve been skeptical of Natalie Portman because I don’t care for her, but I think they nailed the appearance of the characters for sure.

    i’m reading the other boleyn girl as we speak…

  8. Felicia says:

    I will most DEFINITELY be seeing that movie; while drinking a cosmopolitan. Oh YEAH!

  9. Red says:

    I too cannot wait for the Sex In The City movie. Thanks for the countdown! =-) That’s one I so will not be able to take the other half to go see with me. I’m trying to suggest we go see TOBG but it’s been vetoed in favor of a more “guy friendly” flick since the last one we saw was more of a chick flick *wrinkles nose*
