Welcome back to Thursday Movie Picks hosted by Wandering through the Shelves! This Thursday theme is very personal to me since I work as a hotelier (in the office, though). It’s all about ‘Movies set in a Hotel.’
You might think of a holiday trip or a business trip if talking about hotels. Yet, never forget the hotelier to make the stay really happen. See? This week’s theme is full of biases.
To accommodate what I’ve been saying before, here I present you my picks. 01. Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008)
Yeah, Jason Segel tries to forget his ex-girlfriend Kirsten Bell’s Sarah Marshall by escaping to a Hawaiian resort by the sea, where he meets a new girl as well as his ex with a new rockstar beau. Nick Stoller really knows how to take advantages of the resort sets, which culminates in the hilariously bittersweet “lovemaking competition.”
02. Lost in Translation (2003)
Park Hyatt Tokyo located in the most vibrant area in Shinjuku and Shibuya is the witness of the quirky romance which embarks between Bill Murray’s Bob and Scar-Jo’s Charlotte. From their unexpected encounter to the bitter end, the hotel saves everything. The best thing is: the hotel is real and expensive.
03. The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)
The jewel of Zubrowska is also a witness of everything: of happiness and joy, of war and turmoil, but most importantly, of the rise and fall of its most charismatic concierge, Monsieur Gustave H. (Ralph Fiennes) and his apprentice, Zero Moustafa (Tony Revolori).
As I promised before, I have wrapped all the thought, right? Now your comment, please.
