I must confess that I have one pair of designer heels that I splurged on several years ago when I got a huge tax rebate, and it was a pair of Laboutins (just like the ones above but without the platform bit). I have only worn them a few times as I don't want to spoil the beautiful red soles, but that's ok, I'm happy just looking at them! Wink it was great fun shopping for them, I've never really been designer shopping as I can't afford it normally so I felt like a rich person for the day! Lol Smile

@Airemyn

I used to work for a big retailer at Zurich Airport- and with the employee discount I allowed myself once or twice a year designer shoes.
One evening I went out watching a movie and got stuck with my new designer heels in an air shaft while walking out of the parking... Rolling Eyes
Of course a car was coming and of course I had to free myself violently ruining my precious shoes in the process.
Designer shoes just aren't for me I guess. I'm more like country than a society girl Nope

@Night Huntress definitely - me too! I actually lived in London when I bought the shoes but I've since moved to a different smaller city which is a lot more 'countrified' to say the least! They don't have a Laboutin shop for a start! :p

The only time I wear heels these days is at special occasions, I don't bother with them for work much anymore.

@Night Huntress

I think that they are easier for petite women. I'm pretty tall, so even when I was younger, even with chunkier heels (which were more of a thing years ago since I'm GenX), wearing very high heels made me feel like an awkward giant.
@SoloSideCousin

Haha! I don't think height has anything to do with it.  I'm built like a hobbit, and there's no way that I could walk in those things!
@ISeeAnIsland

Lol! I have honestly gone through my whole life thinking it was easier for petite women to wear super high heels unless they had a foot problem.  I was actually always a little envious because those shoes were always so pretty. Seriously, thank you for setting me straight. :-)

Well, duh. We are the nasty, patriarchy-supporting, girly-girl fangirls who like all sorts of stupid girl things like romance and stuff. High heels are just par for the course. Razz

I like standing in high heels. I can't walk in them at all, but I like standing still in them. Perhaps one day somebody might invite me to a party where I only need to stand in one place.

sometimes I take a look in the [REDACTED]- but I never posted once... the discussions there are always just so...depressing.
Here on the other hand it's always funny and nice - just what I need after a stressful day. Cool

Yes we're such empty-headed vessels of the patriarchy that there's no way anytime the "Rey is a role model" or "Reylo is bad because think of the children" type arguments come up that some of us don't immediately flash to the unholy alliance of the Far Right with the anti-porn wing of feminism, both trying to supposedly protect women from sexual danger. Or anyone remembers Female Chauvinist Pigs? It frequently feels like get Rey anywhere near the issues of gender or sexuality, people don't just panic because "think of the children!" but lbr, Hollywood is a Boy's Club which treats women, real and fictional, so sh*ttily.

Those shoes are beautiful, but if I had the money the only pair I'd be dropping $$$ on would be Rey's boots from TFA because they're super cute but also look really comfortable.

I own one of the versions of Rey's boots from TFA, and I can confirm that they are super-comfortable.

Get yourself on the Po-Zo email list. They have sales every few months. I think I paid ~$120 for mine on sale last year. I love them enough that I'm going to save up and buy the TLJ boots, too.

@ISeeAnIsland - thanks, I will do that! I don't know what it is about them because I will not never mock tourists from Southern California who show up in places like Truckee in Uggs when it's not even snowing. Somehow that design manages to be the same type of boot without any of the ugliness or Basic B*tch baggage that goes with it (unless there's a scene in the next movie where Rey discovers the Pumpkin Spice Latte).

Uninspiring trailers. Mum on plot points and story, so that no one knows what it's about. Obsessively guarding against leaks/spoilers to the point of strangling excitement. Long run time. Episode VIII is running the same playbook as Blade Runner 2049, which is underperforming this weekend. I hope LF corrects and stops being so secretive.

@Kylo Men

I just read about Blade Runner underperforming on Deadline. Let's see what the TLJ trailer shows. I never saw the original Blade Runner, so I wasn't interested in this one. (I also find Ryan Gosling to be very underwhelming). But the Deadline article said that no one could actually break down the theme of the movie to a single point. Hopefully, TLJ trailer will give the audience a crystallized point to hang onto, kind of like the teaser poster did.

Blade Runner 2049 is a three hour sci-fi art film. The pacing is the opposite of any Star Wars movie. I liked it for what it was, but I can see why many might not. I think TLJ, while 2.5 hours long, will be packed with essential scenes that further the plot, and not feel drawn out. Hopefully we get a kickass trailer on Monday!

The sequel to the franchise which is considered a pop culture event versus the sequel to a movie based on a cult classic of science fiction with far darker themes, yeah that would not surprise me if it underperforms. And I say that as a fan of the original movie who was obsessed enough at one point to go read the novel it's based on. D*ck's themes are a lot darker and uncomfortable than what you're going to see in a movie about space wizards. In terms of the trailers/advance items, like I've said before, when I saw the trailers for Blade Runner 2049 and TLJ back-to-back, I pretty much knew right away what the plot and central mystery of the former was going to be. Which having read the spoilers and updated Wikipedia entry, I was absolutely correct save for 1 minor detail. Versus TLJ where I have educated guesses and the central plot points, but no idea how the story and characters will get to those points. Which to be honest, I'm looking forward to that because I went into TFA with no preconceived ideas and completely ignored the hype (also saw it 2 months after its release). So I'm personally fine with the level of detail we're getting and also tbh, I don't care one way or the other how it performs with box office or general audience. Because I'm just selfishly happy with the surprise I'm going to get when I finally have the chance to experience it.

The one thing I have heard about Blade Runner 2049 is that the cinematography is spectacular. Which is something I'm always interested in when I watch a movie, but again I doubt that's the sort of thing which is going to get the general audience to go sit through a nearly 3 hour film.

Blade Runner sequel has no nostalgia for a massively loved character attached (i.e. no Luke Skywalker). Deckard is hardly on the level of Han Solo.

I never said TLJ would bomb or anything. But I'm beginning to wonder if it will do as well as it could, given the marketing. I really do wonder how many people are unaware the movie opens in two months.

@Kylo Men

Well, I can't speak for everyone, but speaking for myself, I know Target, Toys 'R Us, and even Petco have TLJ entrance cardboard walkthroughs, so I fail to see how people wouldn't know it's happening. There's always loads of people in the Star Wars section. I think they're good to go. It's going to sell like crazy.

The Star Wars merch for pets confuses me but I ran into gigantic cardboard cut outs of Rey & Kylo for Battlefront, plus all the book and toy releases just running an errand today. But it's certainly more of a presence already than anything I've seen for other big name movies coming out this fall. And I'm still way more interested in seeing it, Mystery Boxes and all, than I'd ever be in sitting for 3 hours watching Ryan Gosling explain to sexy lady robots about how he saved jazz music.

I still haven't seen LalaLand, but I've heard from many, many people that Ryan was its weakest link, including friends who normally fangirl over him (similar to how we are about Adam Driver).

I've never seen The Notebook, but I've actually really liked him in most of the movies I've seen him in--Drive, Lars and the Real Girl, The Nice Guys. And he was easily the best thing about The Place Beyond the Pines.

Honestly, I thought Ryan Gosling gave a terrible performance in LaLaLand. It actually really annoyed me once I saw it, because I would have loved Adam Driver to have gotten Gosling's slot for the Best Actor nomination. Casey Affleck was always going to win, but actually AD got the second most critics best actor awards after Affleck, so he definitely should have been a contender as opposed to Ryan Gosling. I think Gosling just rode that LaLaLand wave.

Tbh, I haven't seen a lot of Gosling's work, but I do agree that he was one of the best things about Place Beyond the Pines. I largely didn't care for that movie.

I thought that La La Land was massively overpraised and it didn't do much for me, but I did think that Ryan Gosling was the best thing in it (Emma Stone's win at the Oscars on the other hand was just a reminder that the Academy really loves to award ingenues who have "arrived").

Same here on Place Beyond the Pines. I'd read some positive reviews of it but went into it largely unspoiled. I downloaded and watched it on a plane, but it really had trouble holding my interest after the "twist" at the halfway point. I found the characters in the first half of the movie much more compelling than those in the second half.
