Gigi had a date with Conor Barry last week. But until now, he does not call her yet. Gigi’s friend, Janine tries to cheer herself up. Maybe Conor lost her number, out of town, crash by cab or his grandma is sick. Then Gigi decides to call him first and swing by to his favorite club. Lucky her, she meets Alex, Conor’s friend and he tells the truth about how girl and boy relationship actually works. Not only Gigi, but Janine, Beth, Anna, Marie and other people also have a problem about sign of love. Are you the exception or just the rule?

He’s Just Not That Into You is a rom-com movie, funny and shows many beautiful things that maybe just happen in your dreams. You just have to enjoy the beautiful or handsome actors that exist here without thinking to much about the story. Why I said this thing? Because of I rather estimate such movie like this. But the story is not that bad, I do love the Gigi story, it is the main story of this movie. Gigi is the type of girl in general who is full of drama. Ginnifer Goodwin is good played a sweet, desperate yet annoying girl. Other people’s stories are interesting enough but it is just the complement and evidence for Gigi and Alex’s talk all at once. The message that I got from He’s Just Not That Into You is do not waste time to a guy who is not interested with you. But what if that guy just need time to think and realize his feeling? Anyway, there is an issue about the impact of technology and social network. It is interesting but not really has a notice. So pity. And a little intermezzo here before I give the movie-o-meter stars, I am curious about Some Kind of Wonderful movie that Gigi watched. Gonna find it soon ;)

Waiting for Forever

Will Doner comes back to his hometown, to meets his unofficially girlfriend and also his childhood friend, Emma. He is planning to talk with her and tells his feeling. Emma herself comes home to see her sick dad and her mom. She never knows that Will always follows her, wherever she goes.

Waiting for Forever has a sweet story. Yet it also tells about traumatic of losing people we love. For example is Will. He was losing his parents when kids and Emma is all he has left. He does not want losing anybody else, so he is following, or stalking, Emma everywhere. He is hoping that if one time he might, could, or would see her around. It is sweet yet creepy. Beside Will, other characters also tell about how traumatic or scared they are to losing and face changes. Well, I got a message from this movie. It is we have to letting go bad memories, losing nice people but we have to keep what we have now as we can and be grateful for it. Maybe the movie is a little bit boring for you. My advice, keep watching and you will get the messages ;)

A 16 year-old girl, Hanna trained by her father, Erik to be a perfect assassin. She is prepared to a solo mission in Europe and kills someone named Marissa. It is going well, she can handle it and even have a friend. But it turns bad when she founds out that the fact she is abnormal and Marissa tells that Erik is not her real father.

Hanna was awesome! My mood felt better after I watched this. Actions are always works as a mood booster. Sadly, it does not have a fresh story. The story was quite predictable yet you still can enjoy it. The reason I watch this is mostly because Eric Bana. I like him in The Time Traveler’s Wife. But surprising, Saoirse Ronan was really good. I almost forget about an annoying girl from Atotement. She grows up fast beautifully. Though it has a lack in plot, Hanna has good scores and awesome actors. Recommended but do not expect too much :D
