Nora Ephron crafts a gloriously longing and hopeful story in Sleepless in Seattle, a film in which love interests don't meet until the final scene. Gently paced and beautifully observant, it is a love letter to romance, American modernity, and cinephilia that is unafraid to explore the comforts and devastations of human connection.
Nora Ephron loved the combination of Hanks ad Ryan so much she has used them in two different films as the main protagonists. The films look very much alike at first glance, and I could forgive anyone for thinking one is the sequel to the other, or the reedited the first film and rereleased it trying to pass it off as a different film. Not so, the characters in both films are totally different. My qualm with films is the same though, Tom Hanks. Something about him in both films made me less than enthusiastic, maybe I was hoping for a handsomer lead guy or one with a sparkling personality. Meg Ryan is pretty good though. The story is very interesting, not exactly Wuthering Heights but still good.
Not to sound like an old-timer, but they really don't make it like this anymore. One of the most romantic movie I've ever seen, and Meg Ryan is absolutely gorgeous in the film. The film is full of references to old films and the music score is similarly nostalgic. Every single characters from the film is so memorable and vibrant with life. Not a movie with a great deal of depth, but that doesn't diminish its beauty.
This is pretty stupid, predictable, and unrealistic. Despite being called a Romcom is wasn't funny and for it's originality, well, from what I gather, it's basically a rip off from another film, which they make no secret of, to be fair.
I ended up watching this like two years ago (yeah, I'm a bit behind I know). But honestly, I thought it was quite overrated. It wasn't all that good, I expected more due to all the things that I've heard about it. Or maybe I'm just not seeing it?
I think my favourite part in this movie is when they were just looking back and forth at each other. The Filipino term for what I felt is "kilig" and it's the term that most fits. They just looked at each other and knew that there IS something. The acting was good. Meg and Tom had chemistry, it showed. Still I felt something was lacking. A better resolution. A different. Or more elaborate or a longer ending could have been nice.
