Anyone here has watched New York, I Love You
? Watching it was a wonderful surprise, I thought it was excellent and very, very entertaining. Directed and written by some of the most respected directors ( if not entirely known to me ) from all over the world, it was made up of 10 short stories. I kept waiting to find out how the stories intertwined with each other, thinking that it was another Love Actually
( another huge favourite ) but except in a very loose way, the stories pretty much stand on their own.
I watched it without knowing much about it and the star-studded cast was a lovely surprise and we had fun ( I watched it with my SIL ) trying to recognize the actors in it. Our conversation pretty much went like this omg that's so and so!!
followed by much squeeing and pinching of each other lol. My favourite was the one written and directed by Natalie Portman ( another surprise, that ).
And now I really want to watch its sister movie Paris Je T'aime
was a huge disappointment though. I was so looking forward to watching Matt Damon and Emily Blunt in it but I didn't quite like it. Maybe if it was just the usual cloak-and-dagger, action movie thriller stuff, I'd have enjoyed it but ... the storyline just wasn't my thing. And the fedoras omg why???
