I watched a couple of movies so many times and have continuously asked myself while watching, what is
going to happen next? While whoever else watched them with me had either cried or felt miserable
afterwards; the first one is p.s. I love you, and the second one is eat, pray love.
I love both actresses, don’t take me wrong, they are both great, and have always enjoyed their movies,
and what they stand for. Julia have surpassed any other actress of course, she has values, and never
acts in a movie that is just for block buster or box office sale, and Hilary is the same, it is enough to see
her movie freedom writer to detect the absolute conviction in the cause. Also, don’t forget her other
movie where she sacrifices everything to defend her brother. That was a fantastic show.
Let us start with P.S I love you (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0431308/). I was waiting to see what is
going to happen next, is he going to come back from the death? Is she going to be utterly surprised?
Was that just a trick to see how much she loves him? Was the trip to Ireland a trick to make her see his
family so she loves them and then he will come back and they will live happily ever after? You will not
believe my disappointment when the movie was over, my daughters were weeping, and so did everyone
else in the movie house, while I was mesmerized in the designs she made, the whole fabrication of the
story, and the size of her flat and how many things she was able to stuff into it. I was also waiting to see
if the movie is going to have a sequel, like superman one and two etc. Of course I watched the movie
the second time and, yes I did weep, and was upset with myself for not weeping the first time I saw the
movie. I still watch it whenever I am on my own, and have time to spare.
But my disappointment was aggravated when I saw Eat pray love
(http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0879870/), I didn’t read the book before the movie, so didn’t know what
to expect, enough for me to see Julia Roberts and her awesome acting. Needless to say that not only
those who went with me were crying during the movie, also all the men and women in the movie were
crying all the time. I haven’t seen so many men cry in a movie before. I am not hinting that men should
not cry, anyone can cry, that is why god gave us all tears tubes, so we all can cry and cleanse our souls.
The number of those that cried was astonishing; normally you will find one man crying in every 100
movies, but to find every actor in that movie crying? It was silly really. Like the scene where Julia’s first
husband was weeping in the left, that was disastrous? And the guy in the ashram? What was that all
about? Ok, he was an alcoholic and a loser, and he figured that out, why cry? Or does life without a real
faith make the heart go weak? Not sure really what it means.
It doesn’t end that way, Javier, who I have only seen him once, in this movie, and thought that he is a
gorgeous young man? He also cried, he cried for loving Julia, cried for seeing his son goes away, and for
hearing his son’s voice on the phone? Of course don’t forget the kissing on the mouth, that was
awesome, I love it when fathers are cuddly with their kids, it shows character, it gives weight to the
whole parental relationship (by the way, my son kisses ,me on the mouth all the time, and I like that) he
is like Javier, very cuddly too. What I am trying to say here is that, for Javier to be in a movie with Julia,
you expect a Breakfast with Tiffany, or Gone with the wind. Not a weeping movie where people have no
idea what they want in life.
I think I should read the story, maybe the book will tell me something nice, and maybe I am so
engrossed with my life to the extent that I do not understand what is going on in the minds of the
western people. I loved the part where Julia went all the way to India to see the Guru, but the Guru was
in New York? Classic, even religions are becoming g for sale.
