27 dresses (2008)
28 days (2002)
500 days of summer (2009)
addiction: to weddings, drugs & a girl, respectively.
learning that those things are not actually everything.
I feel like I just found out my favorite love song was written about a sandwich.
Tonight's lecture: "What's wrong with celebrating sobriety by getting drunk?"
Tom, just because she likes the same bizzaro crap you do doesn't mean she's your soul mate.
the one i recommend the very most:
'500 days of summer' is one of my very favorites ever.
'27 dresses' is one of those typical chick flick,
girl in love with someone unattainable
& then (spoiler!) falls in love with the cute guy who is annoying at first...
it's totally fun & there are some super funny lines.
the scene where she tries on all of the bridesmaids dresses that she ever wore
is really fun & a great twist on the 'dressing room' montage...
& the last scene is really perfect.
& the poster is a favorite of mine!
love the handwriting in the shape of a dress
'28 days' is one of my favorite movies (too bad it had to be in the same set as 500 days)
i love that it's a comedy but also really serious but also really goofy...
it's about a totally serious topic (drug & alcohol addiction) but it finds the humor in it,
but not so much that it makes you think that being an addict looks like fun.
there are some really emotional scenes & it just hits all of the right points...
i mean really.
she's just the best.
i so love the nonlinear-ness of '500 days of summer'
& how awesomely different scenes are rendered
the 'how he hoped it would be/reality' split screen
& the dance scene:
always love him...
zooey deschanel is always great...
one of my most favorite young actresses, chloe grace moretz
(have you seen 'kick ass'? go. go now.)
is really perfect in it
(side note: she has been in quite a few movies where she has to swear, it will be interesting to see as she grows up if she will be a 'bad girl' or if because she's just being normal(ish) (& not trying to be mousketeer sweet) she'll just grow to be a regular person.
if i was smarter or talked about this with someone i might be able to figure out what i'm thinking about it...i guess it goes along with letting my kids listen to popular music, even when it mentions things we might not love for them to talk about just yet... will we regret it or will they just grow up thinking it says 'i'm in the club so i'm gonna do, just what the folks came here to do' just like i had no idea that 'billy jean' was about some lady telling michael that she had his son & he was like 'no way!' but then, those eyes! until i was like 25...
i love this movie & think it is a masterpiece of storytelling &
so perfectly how some relationships feel...
A's & B's!
hint: Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong....
