Day 331 - How I Usually End Each Viewing of Julie & Julia

Day 331. 

Today, I thought I'd let you guys get a small glimpse of what my existence for the past 300-something days has been like. The happiest moment of my day is when Julie & Julia finally reaches its end and I... well, I can't always express how I feel in words. But maybe I can, in song?

*me thinking to myself: you know what this blog needs more of? 
bad singing! everybody loves bad singing! it's foolproof!*

But yeah, that's essentially how I close out each and every viewing of Julie & Julia. With a strained Julia Child falsetto rendition of the old jazz standard, "Time After Time." You should've heard me the first couple of times--my vocal range and abilities have drastically improved since then. Just ask my roommates. They'll tell ya!

(Once they get back from the hospital, that is. Bleeding eardrums will do that to you...)

  12. It’s 1949 in France. Some men are packing a car while Julia (Meryl Streep) and Paul Child (Stanley Tucci) arrive in Paris. Julia seems enchanted with the streets of Paris when they both arrive at their house and are greeted by a maid.

    In 2002 in Queens, Julie (Amy Adams) and Eric Powell (Chris Messina) are riding to their new apartment. Julie asks if Eric is sure the move they’re making is the right thing to do and he says yes and that she’ll love Queens but Julie doesn’t seem to think so. They get to their apartment and let the cat out looking around at everything. Julie seems disappointed by everything in the apartment because it seems dingy and old and is so far out of the city.

  13. You make some good points and I feel a little more enlightened. I’ve read ten other opinions about this and yours rings truest.

    I think the issue surrounding professional pride wasn’t particularly personal just the amazement that someone doing so little (compared to Julia) in such a haphazard fashion could achieve so much notoriety. I feel the older generations are always surprised by how much more easily recognition is sometimes gained by others for relatively less effort, and it is perceived as a drop in standards. Given her work ethic, Julia was probably put off by being associated with something so frivolous. play hacked games at school

    I think too, when I realized that Julie Powell was really different from the movie character, and that she was emoting as much as she was cooking, I came to understand how Julia Child would distance herself from the blog.

    That just proves the theory that whatever Julia and Judith thought of the blog wasn't based on any kind of solid information. They were critical of the blog as they understood it or as it was represented to them, and not the blog as it actually was. Too bad, really, that they've been widely reported as disparaging something they apparently knew little about -- it actually reflects more badly on them (or really, their staff or whoever was responsible for bringing it to their attention) than on Julie.

    Notice, too, how Judith is trading on the film to plug both her previous book and her new one. I hope she takes Julie Powell to a nice dinner with all the extra book sales she's going to get from the free publicity of the movie.
