These are films that I've seen over the years that I've either liked or loved, but A LOT of people…
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…

La fui a ver al cine. Ja. ja. ja.
What I got to say about "New Year's Eve" is an okay holiday movie. The performances are good. The directing by Garry Marshall is good. The score and special effects is okay.
I liked Valentine's Day better.
This film might be the cheesiest thing I've ever watched and I'm not the one to pass up on a chick-flick. This is just extra-cheese dripping pizza Margherita. It had its few moments but overall added up to a blank and featureless amphigory.
I liked Valentine's Day. It was formulaic but likeable. In comparison, this has almost nothing going for it. It's so insipid and dull, with all the clichés you could possibly imagine. It's made to appeal to everyone, and maybe there are some out there that will eat this up, I dunno. It's hard for me to imagine such a thing. The only storyline that I felt anything for whatsoever was Michelle Pfeiffer as a lady trying to cross off a bunch of resolutions before midnight. I think I liked that mostly because Pfeiffer is great. Otherwise this is a large waste of time.
You can't review this film without comparing it to Marshal's Valentines Day. They both basically use the same recipe. I liked Valentines Day much more because it felt very natural. New Year's Eve felt very forced and unnatural. The acting was not convincing. Film success is not guaranteed by casting great actors if they are just going to wing it. Bon Jovi gave a convincing performance, but he was basically playing himself!
I'm still waiting for a new album Tom!
