Before Sunrise - 1995

Category: Movie

Genre: Drama / Romance

Director: Richard Linklater

Writer: Richard Linklater / Kim Krizan

Tagline: Jump on and live a Eurorail journey you will never forget!

Cast: Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy

Overview and Review of the movie Sunrise writted and directed by Richard Linklater.

First off, I'd like to thank an angel, Xan for sharing me this film.

Jesse(Ethan Hawke) an American tourist and Celine(Julie Delpy), a French student met by chance on the train from Budapest to Vienna. Sensing that they have a certain connection and the great, Jesse asks Celine to jump off the train and spend the day with him in Vienna, and she agrees. They were just passing the time before Jesse's scheduled flight the next morning.

Do you think its ever possible to intimately connect to a stranger for over a day? What is this special thing that bonds these two stranger so strongly?

I find it raw and very real and it was brilliant that those emotions are so evident in film and you don't get that nowadays. And the connection that the two actors have in the movie, you can feel it as well. The whole movie actually revolved around the two of them just conversing. It wasn't boring, because the lines were all good. And to say "good" is an understatement. I can identify with the characters, the emotions, the ideals, the philosophies. This touched my heart and I can almost feel what I felt when sharing that with someone. :) *brings back memories* *made me cry and sends shivers to my spine* Very good screenplay.

This also reminds me I need to get on the EURORAIL one of these days... mhmm.. :)

Just watch it and experience for yourself. :)

Definetly, Maybe - 2008

Category: Movies

Genre: Romance / Comedy

Director: Adam Brooks

Writer: Adam Brooks

Tagline: Three relationships. Three disasters. One last chance.

Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Abigail Breslin, Elizabeth Banks, Isla Fisher, Rachel Weisz, Daniel Eric Gold, Kevin Kline, An Nguyen, Matthew Mason, Rick Derby, Sakina Jaffrey, Alexie Gilmore, Marc Bonan

Overview and Review of the movie Definetly, Maybe directed and written by Adam Brooks.

Will Hayes, a Manhattan dad in the midst of a divorce attempts to answer his 10 year old daughter, Maya, when she questioned him about his life before marriage. And her past romances. Will said: "Its complicated." Maya, on the other hand wants to know everything about how her parents met and fell in love. Nothing short of, "we met.. and fell in love and decided to start a family." but, the complete detail. Will hopelessly attempts a "PG" version of his story for his daughter ad changes the names so Maya has to guess who he finally married. As Maya puts together the pieces of her dad's romantic puzzle, she begins to understand that love is not so simple or easy. And as Will tells her his tale, Maya helps him to understand that it's definitely never too late to go back...and maybe even possible to find a happy ending.

It's fun. Not exactly that innocent, but it's got a few frank dialogue from the kid which I find really really cute. I had fun with its unique way of story telling. Something new, from the usual. At least, thats what I know. I like the concept, and the actors and actresses did very well. I like the soundtrack as well... and i cried on some parts. im such a crybaby.

Cast: Anika Noni Rose, Bruno Campos, Keith David, Michael Leon Wooley, Jennifer Cody, Jim Cummings, Peter Bartlett, Jenifer Lewis, Oprah Winfrey, Terrence Howard, John Goodman

Overview and Review of Princess and The Frog written and directed by Ron Clements and John Musker

Disney adapts the classic Frog Prince. A brilliant animation that can touch a lot of kids out there - and even the adults too. :) I like the jazz music they play and everything about it. It's about wishing on stars and working for one's dreams. :)

Comical and sweet. Wonderful twist of the classic fairy tile The Frog Prince.
