Meet Cute

So this week I manage to see 2 movies,luckily both is good enuff in my book,1st was The Holiday,on thursday...been aiming that movie for weeks now (cause abg ngah bakon,dan jaa bukan jack black yeh!)and on that day Noi came to town,so great chance to catch up while watching the movie.Though it could have been better if i wasnt working on that day(that day was Thaipusam,fyi) ...then yesterday saw Babel with Jaa and friends,also after working...god i need a new job.

I'll keep it short cause i have no mood as previously somehow,everything I wrote earlier for this entry went missing.

Allrite,The Holiday is for me fluffy cute(oxymoron i know)It made me smiled coyly like every 10 min.It's a cute movie,with an ending that u can smells miles and miles away.But that's not really a problem for me cause, i wasnt expecting Beautiful Minds or whatever.

The bad.It was way too long,my firm buttocks was sore and i change position loads of time after it passes the 1hr 30 min time.They could have cut some scenes short.Thats the only negative for me.

The acting was fine,Jack is smooth,i like him more after this movie.Kate's a sweetheart you'll fall for her akwardness and her speech bout the defination of love.Cameron's a ditz,but that works for her,still hot though..and Jude is still awesome.Oh the kids also are very believable and cute,their scene in the tent with Jude and Cameron is cute.

Now the best thing I like bout this movie is the subplot regarding Kate's old neighbour.His story really moved me personally as it got me wondering,WHY THE HELL AM I NOT WORKING IN ANY MEDIA DEPT!, this old dude can actually be me,though he is more deeper that I am.Sigh..well enough bout me,another scene comes to mind is when Jack Black was singing the scores to the movies he pick up and kinda made Kate guess what movie it was.At one time I really wanted to scream "JAWS!!!!!".

So that's bout it for The Holiday,I like the movie,possiblity of buying is high.And i recommend this movie to those who loves this mushy fluffy cutesy kinda movie.

Quote from movie :
Say a man and a woman both need something to sleep in and both go to the same men's pajama department. The man says to the salesman, "I just need bottoms," and the woman says, "I just need a top." They look at each other and that's the 'meet cute.'

Now I dont know what Babel means, it sounded like "people talking at once,or someone making noise" but just checked and this came up

an ancient city in the land of Shinar in which the building of a tower (Tower of Babel) intended to reach heaven was begun and the confusion of the language of the people took place. so base on that, it now does make sense a little.

Production,character,story nearly everything bout this story was good, however i dont get what they are trying to say,what i saw is a potrayal of how bad another country condition is.Maybe after the above description it makes a lil more sense, specially the Jap gir plot.

Though it is intresting to watch each culture,its also kinda pisses me i heard noises from the back went groan and ew and ick when they potrayed how bad arab countries are,eventhough it could be THAT bad.But the reaction from other audiance seems to downgrade these people more rather than make them realise how bad their conditions are, and for that...i again say...i dont get what this movie is trying to say.I dont want to go on saying more cause,i really dont know how to explain what i felt after watching this movie.

I end with,everything is good,but personally something isnt quite right bout this movie.


Now lets see what is coming in the future and what I'm still waiting for to see

First up is Black Christmas remake which im pissing my pants to see ASAP,I dont think it be showing here anytime soon,so im guessing I have to go for other alternative.Though reviews are quite bad for this remake,i still want to see it as the cast is awesome...and the original was eerie,specially the last part

Babel, dari my point of view adalah rentetan peristiwa yang bermula dengan salah anggap.

American tourist salah anggap ingat org Arab nak bunuh derang.

US Imegresen yg salah anggap pasal the nanny bawa anak2 Brad Pitt masuk balik US.

Orang2 bisu/tuli yg sentiasa akan salah anggap ttg org2 yg bolh mendengar.

Selain salah anggap perkataan lain yang boleh kita guna adalah, saling tidak mempercayai. Bebudak Arab tu tak caya senapang tu leh pegi jauh, derang try tembak bas.

Orang2 yg menonton pun patut fikir sebenarnyer apa yg kita tonton dalam citer ni memang diri kita sebenarnya. Cerita Babel mmg sangat hampir tepat cultural reference nyer tanpa prejudis.

true mmg tak prejudis tapi tuh lah, i dont get apa dia nak katakan,though, mmg kisah salah anggap tuh mungkin dead on based on erti makna babel

apa2 pon cerita jepun paling aku suka,cause dia lain,seksi dan at least aku faham dia nak katakan dia nak sampaikan something tapi tak tercapai so dia bogel(last statement acah jer)
