Movies I have watched or have been meaning to watch. Some of my favorite movies and also, about making movies and the people who make it all come together.

Getting to Know You

No idea why I started to watch it. Saw The Saint in my suggestion list but it was not free and this just happened to be one of the next ones. The short description was somewhat interesting:

When his drunken ex-girlfriend won’t leave him alone, a man asks a married woman staying at the same hotel to pretend to be his . . .

Very cheesy, but I don’t think they were trying to avoid that. If you can look past the cheesy, it is pretty well made. Definitely enjoyed watching – around midnight.

De surprise

After both sign an agreement with a company that offers to end their lives when they least expect it, a dejected millionaire and a disheartened young woman fall in love and have to find a way to get out of their binding contracts.

With a tag line like above, how was I supposed to start watching it. As I did, I realized that it was a foreign film and not the usual French or Italian or German or East European but Dutch. I don’t recall another Dutch movie that I have watched before.
