New Year's Resolutions

New Year's Resolutions

The year 2010 has great in many aspects – all the Toastmasters conferences in many interesting places, all the great people I met on those occasions, the Szlachetna Paczka charity action – a lot to do, and all very satisfying.

Last year was also great culturally – I finally gave a proper listen to Mike Oldfield’s works other than “Tubular Bells” and in last weeks I fell in love with Radiohead (thus becoming “thomosexual“). Also, all those movies and books…

Wait. What movies? What books?

"Fanaa"

"Fanaa"

So we watched another Bollywood movie. After “Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham” we fell in love with the convention, but somehow we haven’t watched anything since. Then we saw “Slumdog Millionaire” and for some time we were a little discouraged to watch anything Bolly again.

But that phase has passed and now we’re back to exploring Indian cinema. We started with the movie “Fanaa”, known in the English-speaking world as “Destroyed in Love” and starring known from KKKG Kajol (unfortunately, with no Shahrukh Khan …). We chose that film because my fiancee works with blind children, and Kajol’s character in this movie is blind, so she was curious how will that work in a Bollywood movie.

"Valentine's Day"

"Valentine's Day"

Yes, I know it’s tomorrow :)

But we celebrated it today, with a movie called “Valentine’s Day”. My Only Right Girl said she’s taking me for a movie of my choice, but instead of taking her on some post-apocalyptic thriller with Denzel Washington or action packed adventures of Sherlock Holmes I decided we should see that movie.

Girls from my previous job told me about it last Thursday and said it seems to be something like “She’s Just Not That Into You” or “Love Actually”, or some other movie like that – several simultaneous love stories about different people. Then I saw the trailer, and despite it containing the worst fucking song ever (“I Got A Feeling” by Black Eye Peas), I decided it could be fun, and I was sure my fiancee would love it, especially because of half of “Grey’s Anatomy”‘s cast starring in it.

We saw it today then, and we liked it. As far as multi-threaded mosaic movies go (like Altman movies, or “Magnolia”, or “Play By Heart”, or “Traffic”), this was pretty mediocre, but as a romantic comedy (in this area I just can’t believe anything better than “Four Weddings And A Funeral” will ever appear) it was pretty good – it was positive, had some tear jerking moments and even more funny ones. It had maybe a little too many stories, too many characters and, in the beginning, we felt overwhelmed and a little lost, and in the end it felt just too long – we were just waiting for the film to end.

But over all, it was a Valentine’s Day well spent :)
