Get Him to the Greek-06/04
Photobucket
This is the Forgetting Sarah Marshall spin off. Russell Brand reprises his role as rocker Aldous Snow while Jonah Hill plays a completely new character. Snow has went back to his old ways and Hill has to go retrieve him. I’ve thought Hill was funny since his appearance as the guy buying platforms in 40 Year Old Virgin. All of the clips and trailers for this crack me up even the 3rd or 4th time. I’ll be checking this out this weekend.

Splice-06/04
Photobucket
Splice stars Sarah Polly and Adrian Brody. This looks like a pretty cool scifi flick. It looks a bit like a darker Species except instead of raising an alien it’s a new type of human. Reviews have been good.

Marmaduke-06/04
Photobucket
This is a live action movie based on the comic strip. The strip is sometimes funny. I love that they had Owen Wilson voice Marmaduke. The always awesome Judy Greer costars. Plus there are a ton of other actors supplying voices. I’ll be renting this one. You can check out the trailer here.

Ondine-06/04
Photobucket
I love Colin Farrell but the trailers I’ve seen for this were hella boring. Plot (from IMDB.com): “The story of an Irish fisherman who discovers a woman in his fishing net who he believes to be a mermaid.” Stephen Rea costars.

Finding Bliss-06/04 (Limited)
Photobucket
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0LXDjeBWXE
I hadn’t heard about this until I started putting this post together. Leelee Sobieski stars as a wannabe filmmaker in this comedy. She inadvertently gets involved in a porn and decides to shoot her own movie at night. Jamie Kennedy, Denise Richards and Kristen Johnston costar. This looks like it has the potential to be pretty funny.

The Killers-06/04
Photobucket
This is the new action romantic comedy starring Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl. Before I wasn’t sure but after seeing the nonstop TVs ads I’ve decided this will suck. You can view the trailer here.

The A-Team-06/11
Photobucket
This is the big screen remake of the TV series of the same name. I’m not gonna lie, I’m all over this movie because Bradley Cooper looks hot in it. It looks like it could be a fun flick. Liam Neeson, Jessica Biel and Patrick Wilson costar.

The Karate Kid-06/11
I have no interest in any of the Karate Kid movies. Just restating my opinion that Will Smith will use this movie to boost his son, Jaden Smith (the lead), to stardom. Obviously Smith knows what he’s doing when it comes to making careers.


Toy Story 3
-06/18
Photobucket
Plot (from IMDB.com): “Woody (Hanks), Buzz (Allen), and the rest of their toy-box friends are dumped in a day-care center after their owner, Andy, departs for college.” I think this one looks like it could be pretty good if you’re a fan of the Toy Story movies (I was). As usual, Tom Hanks and Tim Allen star.

Jonah Hex-06/18
Photobucket
This adaptation of a comic book stars Josh Brolin as the disfigured bounty hunter. John Malkovich costars. This adventure film looks like a good time. I’m a fan of Brolin but I get the feeling that he was picked because even though he’s been acting for 25 years many people on the street wouldn’t recognize him. That has to be awkward. Even if this looked bad I’d be jazzed about it, just look at Megan Fox in it. Go here to see the trailer. You can download the poster and wallpapers at the official site. Set photos are from megansafox.com. I highly recommend this site as an up to date resource for Megan Fox photos.

Cyrus-06/18 (Limited)
Photobucket
This is a dark comedy that stars John C. Reilly and Marisa Tomei as a new couple. Jonah Hill plays Tomei’s needy son. Go watch the trailer here.

Grown Ups-06/25
Photobucket
If I had only seen the cast and not any trailers for this I’d probably think it was gonna be amazing. It’s a comedy about old friends who reunite starring a ton of SNL actors: David Spade, Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider, Maya Rudolph, Colin Quinn, Tim Meadows and Norm MacDonald. The results don’t look that hot though. On Spade’s twitter it sounded like they had a ball filming it but that shouldn’t be your only reason for making a movie, right? I’ll probably check it out while it’s in theaters just because I love Spade.


Knight and Day
-06/25
Photobucket
Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz star in this action film about a woman getting pulled into an adventure with a spy. No you aren’t seeing double, there are big similarities between this and the previously mentioned The Killers movie. Peter Sarsgaard (who I love!) costars. This looks like it could have been fun years ago, like before we knew Cruise was insane.

I wore this outfit when Donna and I went to see Sex and the City 2 on my birthday, last Sunday (May 30th). The dress is by Isabel Lu. I bought it from Gilt.com. Gilt is a members only invitation site that sells designer clothes at awesome prices. This dress was about 70% off of the regular price. You can sign up here. My sister is wearing my Sex and the City shirt that I bought in 2008 when the first film was released. It was from Sarah Jessica Parker’s now defunct Bitten line. It was sold at Steve & Barry’s. I remember when I saw the line’s debut on Oprah. The problem was the clothes weren’t that interesting. I guess I was hoping for Carrie style but that’s actually Patricia Field’s style not SJP’s. I thought the movie was really fun. Go here to hype my look if you are on LookBook.

A few days before my birthday my mother took me to Applebee’s to celebrate. Unfortunately we had a really rude waitress and couldn’t really enjoy ourselves. I don’t like to complain but I don’t think it was a big deal that we needed more/different dressing. She never offered to refill my drink and threw our bill at us before we were done eating. I had the chicken won ton tacos and a half size oriental chicken salad.

I wore this Free People dress. I’m a seller on eBay. Usually I just flip movie and TV wardrobe. I don’t buy the stuff to wear myself. Most of the actresses are tiny so I couldn’t do that if I wanted to. When I got this dress worn by Mellie on Dollhouse (Season 1 Episode 5: True Believer) I had to wear it. She’s not a skinny minnie like the other girls on the show. If you’re on LookBook please go hype my style on there.

A few years ago my sister and I decided to visit New York. It was my second visit. The first time I didn’t have anything at all planned and it was cool but not what it could have been. This time we had made a list of things we wanted to do. One of those things was the was the On Location Tours: Sex and the City Tour. Unfortunately the tours for that day were sold out. It must be a very popular tour because this was prior to the announcement that they were making the first film. So we decided to just visit some of the places ourselves. The first thing we found out was that many of the locations are actually in Greenwich Village, not New York City. Greenwich Village is very charming. We had to just wing it. Now there are easier ways to do this.

You may want to set up your visit yourself even if the tour is available to save $40+ or so you can do a shorter or longer tour or visit some of the locations that are no longer included in the On Location tour. There is also the Watson Adventures Sex and the City Scavenger Hunt for $24.50. I think this is a type of walking tour.

If you have an iPhone you can go here and for only .99 you can buy an app that includes 40 Sex and the City locations. To get directions you can use Hop Stop which will let you plan your route by walking, subway, bus or a combo.

Carrie’s Stoop

Let’s start with my favorite location, Carrie’s stoop. Due to the disruptions caused by the large number of people visiting the stoop during the tour the stoop was nixed from the On Location Tour in 2008. In that article they listed that there is a sign in front to stop loitering. I don’t know if this is still in effect or not. If it were going for the first time I’d still try to get a picture. FYI-It’s been said that Sarah Jessica Parker herself lives nearby on Charles St.

It was also featured in the SNL Digital Short Lazy Sunday.
Magnolia Bakery was recently dropped from the On Location Tour. When we were there we didn’t attempt to go in because there was a huge line. From what I’ve read on the net that’s often the case.

During my first visit to NYC in 2001 I watched some street performers in front of this place. In 2008 it appeared as the setting of Carrie’s wedding. For tons of pics and info on how many films were shot there I recommend reading The New York Public Library from “Sex and the City: The Movie” by Lindsay.
