Suffering from…

December 6, 2008 — 1 Comment

Long-lost-love Syndrome. LOL’ There was a time when I was very romantic in my movie viewing, and I began picking “best kisses,” but I can’t remember the last time I saw a romantic film – and if I’ve done so… I can’t remember a single kiss. I mean, I remember kisses (mostly of shows), but they don’t feel in the same level of the kisses that I picked before…

What I do know is that the possible romantic films, or other genre with love interests have always turned out to be people who love/loved each other and parted and never see each other again. BUM. I spent the first 15 episodes of Atsu-Hime crying my eyes out because Naogoro and Atsu-Hime… sighs, even the thought of it depresses me. It crashes my heart when Eita (as Naogoro) says “Nippon Ichi no Otoko” T_T Atsu-Hime (at that time Okatsu) tells him she wants to marry the best man in Japan, and then everything happens. GOSH! That last scene when they play Go together…

Aha! Thinking about it at the moment… maybe my lack of hot kissing is because of watching too many Asian films and series. LOL’ The only kiss I recall from the films I’ve seen is the one in Memories of Matsuko, yet another Eita project. xD EITA LUVIN’!!! But that kiss was not hot, as much as it was funny and kinda icky. HA! Another kiss that comes to mind was the one in Shinku (Deep Red) with Asami Mizukawa, but that was just a bizarre kiss placed in the film. Then there was the weird biting-the-lip kiss with Juri Ueno and Hayato Ichihara, LOL in Rainbow Song. xD

Then, I’m pretty sure there was a kiss or two in Les Chansons d’Amour, but I can’t remember… I only recall the awesome ending quote. xD

Aimez-moi moins, mais aimez-moi un longtemps.

LOVE.

Then there was Fucking Åmål, but I only remember the cute chocolate milk scene at the end. xD Then there was Enchanted, which I’m sure there was a “magic kiss” and all, but I was more concerned in Patrick Dempsey’s hotness, and Amy Adams’ big cartoon eyes. LOL Then came Dan in Real Life, and Juliette Binoche’s hotness in the film… There’s a lot of hot in Lucia y el Sexo (obviously), but can’t remember a kiss hahaha~~~

So… I’ve gone back at least a year of movies, and those are the ones I can come up with. There are kisses from shows… but still, have to think about those. Fact is, Amy is suffering from LLL Syndrome. xD

It wasn’t long ago that Lima got the chance to watch Paris, Je t’Aime – and though the shorts are not perfect, they are very enjoyable. They also had a really nice cast put together that included Natalie Portman, Juliette Binoche, Elijah Wood, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Maggie Gyllenhaal, heck~~ even Ryan Phillippe. LOL… and with an interesting list of directors that included Cuaron, the Coen and Gus Van Sant~~

Apparently, the collection of short films were pretty successful, so as Hollywood does what Hollywood does best~~ Now we’ve got New York, I Love You… and there’s a Teaser because apparently there might be a screening at TIFF. Here it is~~

I was excited about NY, I Love You. I was… but this teaser~~ some of the actors, they’re not on my good list of actors~~ in fact, they are in my list of actors I should skip. LOL’ Though, I’ve probably made exceptions. Anyway, and the music. I like the music… I do. But I thought they could pick tracks less familiar, because at the moment it makes me feel like I put my iPod on shuffle.

Also… 2010, will you be ready for Shanghai, I Love You? Or should that be Shanghai, Wo Ai Ni??? xD

Paris Je t\'AimeThe short films collection of Paris Je t’Aime was FINALLY released in Lima. It was released in Cannes in 2006, did some weeks of running through some small screen, and was released on DVD on 2007.

Juliette Binoche - hc916After obsessing just a bit with watching Dan in Real Life, HBO showed a re-run of Chocolat. I love the movie, mainly because of the Chocolate-y goodness… I can just smell the chocolate coming from the TV. LOL’ Anyway, after that, I was on the boards at IMDB and run into a transcript of a recent interview with Juliette Binoche. Since it’s posted on the forum, you would need to have an IMDB account – so I’m posting here…
