Sex With a Pretty Woman

Oft times my adoration for film is viewed as phony. Meaning, people feel  my unrelenting love is more gimmick than truth. I understand the interpretation. I’m an odd character and my accompanying personality is difficult to digest. Nevertheless, I assure you that my passion is unfettered, and my purpose pure. I love film. It is the greatest and most elegant means of escape I can imagine. Moving images and amplified sounds that combine to convince my mind of worlds beyond.

There’s many I enjoy. The futuristic: both the prosperous and post-apocalyptic. The humorous: star-studded or well written. And of course the fantastical: from the animated to the magical. In addition though there are many types of tales I appreciate, there are two in particular I love most. The story wherein the unsuspecting saves the world, and the one where the guy gets the girl. This is a blog about the latter.

Every time I tell someone about how much I love “Sex in the City: The Movie” they get weirded out. Male or female, gay or straight, it tends to throw first-timers off. I don’t blame them considering Conan the Barbarian is my all-time fav movie, and Keanu Reeves my fav actor. The fact I like Carrie and the girls in addition  is thus a step past strange! =)) Alas, let me allude in part to the reason why I adore this film.

Whenever I see scenes like those above, the haughty hilarity of Sarah Jessica Parker is mimicked in my mind by the voice of another. Though the pitch and tempo can never be properly duplicated by my day-dreaming, the emotions it creates are consistent with those had when it was heard in person. And whenever those feelings return… I smile.

Now here’s another cracker-jack mystery… Pretty Woman. I must say that Vivian Ward is tied for my favorite Julia Roberts character to date. It’s not because she plays a hooker turned housewife, it’s instead because of two scenes in particular. First, the morning after her and Edward meet she exits the shower to his honest accolades. It’s the first moment he truly sees her, and he’s overwhelmed. I know the look, and I know what it feels like to see a woman so beautiful that she becomes the word itself.

That was the second scene, and it’s importance is simple. You can tell a woman loves you by the way she kisses you. With so many dis-interested dick hunters lip locking for lunch money it’s easy to think of a kiss as merely foreplay. Yet, if you ever find a pair of lips that tremble upon yours like Vivian Ward’s… never leave them.

A woman that loves you is the only thing better than film, and that’s saying a lot considering this is “my life at the movies.”

    First, really great blog, turned out amazing.
    Second, I’m a guy who enjoys killing, action, etc but I also enjoy a good romantic comedy. That said, the Sex and the City movies werent very good in my opinion! let the haters hate!

    Pretty Woman on the other hand is a classic. I’m more fo a COMEDY guy when it comes to romantic comedies IE Knocked Up, 40-year-old virgin and Juno! Also, Before Sunset has to be my fav non-comical Romantic film.

      Thanks… and so glad you read it after I fixed it. The whole transition to Pretty Woman was not there (thank god I re-read my own stuff, LOL).

      Anyways, I haven’t seen the 2nd Sex & the City movie, but as you know I LOVE the first one. I agree with all your picks, but I still gotta see Before Sunset when I get the chance.

        It’s so good man, it really puts a lot of movies to shame.

    I’ve always had a weak spot for Carrie & Mr Big…still have the charm you gave me from the movie on my purse:) Pretty Woman is one of my all time faves…I love Julia’s character. Her insecurities…not aware of how truly beautiful she is~inside and out. My favourite scene is the shopping one. Where the girl says she can’t shop are her store…then she goes back all gorgeous and says “Big mistake…big big mistake.” I know we shouldn’t be catty but it’s sometimes nice to be justified. Agreed with the kissing part….why do you think your dad & I have stayed together for so long:) (Was that TMI?)

      You are so adorable, and no I love your’s and dad’s story. You two conquered the odds and are living your dreams together. I still hope to have what you and dad have. I don’t know why I’ve never been able to find it, I mean I definitely believe I have… but I just want the happily ever after.

      I have faith it will happen :) I’ve worked too hard to stop believing in love.

    Wow man. That was such a cool take. As you know, I love Sex and The City 1 &2. Also Pretty Woman will always be one of my favs. Richard Gere is priceless in that flick. This was a very cool piece to read and I’m glad you wrote it. Definitely lets people into the reasoning behind your seemingly strange picks.

      I still haven’t seen Sex & the City 2 yet. I have to put all that negative press aside so I can enjoy those sexy little firecrackers take to Abu-Dhabi! Thanks for enjoying this one. It is literally the first one I went into the archives for without the need to re-watch them prior to putting the piece together. I am trying to make more time to unfold the diversity of film I enjoy.

      That said it is also a great light on my life.
