I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
New Year's Eve
The one night anything is possible.
The lives of several couples and singles in New York intertwine over the course of New Year's Eve.
What’s that noise? It’s the deafening sound of twenty popular actors* all hitting rock bottom at the same time. I always thought New Year’s Eve was supposed to be fun but it seems I was wrong.
*And Sarah Jessica Parker.

What in the actual fuck did I just watch?
If you thought Lost had a shitload of storylines, watch this, it boggles the mind! Honestly, who the fuck thought it was a good idea to write a mosaic about just about every fucking body in New York City? What are we trying to do here? Chronicle the lives of all the people in NY that are probably too stupid to shit? Who you say? Katherine Fugate? Right, wasn't that the untalented 'writer' who already aborted our souls with the atrocious Valentine's day? She still has a job after that? Wonderful....
All characters here were obviously born in a bowl…
Happy New Year's Letterboxders! Here's to a great 2014 of movie watching!
Ps. There's no way in hell I've actually watched this movie!
Piss on this goddawful pile of dung.
I'm not sure how or why I ended up watching this on Memorial Day...
But I really wish I hadn't.
Oh man. I went into this with an open mind. I liked the idea of it. I love movies with huge ensemble casts and several stories that weave around one another. I love movies that are set in New York. I either like or don't mind everyone in the cast. The idea of all these actors involved in loosely connected stories all taking place on New Year's Eve in the Big Apple is really appealing to me.
But GOOD GOD is this movie terrible. Not only are all the stories (every single one!) utterly devoid of interest and even the smallest amount of depth or human truth, they are actively frustrating and annoying. (The worst of all goes to the…
Again, interwoven stories = perfection for me. Watched this alone in the cinema 3 years ago and that was one of the best things I did.
A film you only want to see once. The same concept as Valentines Day only worse and with different actors. Terrible.
Another film that follows the template laid down by "Valentine's Day", "NYE" intersects several different stories around the titular holiday. Enough star power here to fuel 10 movies, without getting into the many celebrity bit-roles. It's all perfectly shallow but harmless entertainment - which makes it a sizeable target for cynics. Naturally some subplots fare better than others: Meyers competing with Schwelger to coerce their wives into having the first baby of the year is amusing. MIchelle Pfeifer puts in a good performance as lonely office lady with a quirky list of resolutions. De Niro as terminal cancer patient gets to act opposite Halle Berry (both Oscar winners), and as one can imagine, their acting is far too good for the simple melodrama they play out.
"Nothing beats New York on New Year's Eve."
I'd have to disagree with you, Robert De Niro, because from where I was sitting I think I'd be happier pulling a stinging nettle out of my Jap's eye.
I know what possessed me to see New Year's Eve that day. I wanted to make my girlfriend happy. Rom-com wasn't a particularly dirty word to me, I just wasn't used to seeing one at the cinema. We sat through the opening ads and I, in my naivety, was about to alert the staff that there must have been monkeys in the rafters shitting in my eyes, when I realised, this is the fucking movie. An all-star cast mashed into a sardine can…
I watched this on a place and it was perfect for my drug induced snoozing
If you are male and watched this, chances are like me you were dragged extremely reluctantly and moaning in your head into the cinema.
Boring teenage girl pandering throughout and total trash. If you watch this of your own will, you should seriously consider your life and whether it's worth continuing.
