Hello! It’s the first day of 2016, and I’ve been doing some classic activity: eating oreo while re-watching retro movies in my room. By retro I mean movies in the 90’s and early 2000’s though :P. Talking about You’ve Got Mail (1998), I was watching this again when it made me realize how changed the world is now: the internet is more than just chatrooms and e-mails. As for the rivalry between the two book stores in the movie, nowadays we can buy books through e-commerce -you don’t even need a physical store to sell books.
This might be a boring 1hr 59min movie for you if you are looking for modern intriguing-unpredictable movie plot. However then again, this movie is filled with butterflies, coffee, books, kids, festivals, and internet (and daisies) which a person like me can relate to. It’s just a relaxing classic piece.
“Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life. Well, not small, but valuable. And sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven’t been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn’t it be the other way around? I don’t really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So good night, dear void. ”
