It’s not that I don’t love my life, because I do. It’s just that there are a lot of really great movies. Movies with characters that know who they are, and stand up for what they believe in. Movies with stories that inspire us to make our own. Movies that give us something to do while we are home for the 7 week break and have nothing to do...
(500) Days of Summer.
In case you missed my blog the other day, I loved this movie. Fabulous!!!
First of all, who could say no to Joseph D-L in that movie? Second of all, if my life had a soundtrack like that, I’d be happy. Thirdly, I have always loved skylines and have always wanted to live in California. I even wanted to be an architect when I was little.
I could talk about this movie for far longer than anyone would care to listen, but it was seriously, positively, terribly, horribly, fantastically, wonderfully wonderful. The clothes, the music, the coloring (that filter that all indie movie seem to have), the chemistry, the cinematography, the irony, the introduction, the narration, the characters, the friends, the emotions… get the point?
The last movie I felt this much for was the Darjeeling Limited.
The Darjeeling Limited
For those of you who don’t know this, I have seen a few rate R movies. For those of you who that doesn’t sit well with, forget I ever said it and skip this entry.
There is something very beautiful about the idea of traveling through foreign lands with your brothers, or in my case I guess it would have to be my sister orbest friends since I have no brothers. I wrote my bucket list after seeing this movie. It just made me want to... LIVE.
I am almost overwhelmed to announce that next summer I plan on doing a study abroad humanities trip through europe!! If anyone want's to come too, do it! Right now I am just planning on doing it alone, but having a travel buddy would be grand :)
A Knights Tale
Who doesn’t love a good rag to riches story? And who doesn’t love a good Heath Ledger? And who can possibly resist a movie that starts with a Queen song?
Not only does this movie have HL, action, and an empowering message, but it has a tender love story to boot.
Everything Is Illuminated
Sometimes I’m just afraid I will forget too. Sometimes I want to catalogue my entire life as well. Sometimes I wish I has a friend as terrible with English as Alex.
Although boring when watched too frequently, Everything is illuminated is a fantastic movie.
