Day 109: Save the Last Dance

Save the Last Dance w/ Julia Stiles & Sean Patrick Thomas

I don’t know how, but the thought of watching Eclipse literally felt like pain. So I opted out and vowed to return to it the next day. I wanted to watch something I thought was fun and a good blast from the past. Save the Last Dance was my perspective of MTV’s last attempt in trying to be actually cool. I thought Julia Stiles was so bad, being the quintessential white girl entering a whole new world filled with amazing hip hop music and dancing. Clearly following the dance movie formula, the movie was an easy hit for me. Oh man, Sean Patrick Thomas is so damn fine. Smart and smooth, pleassseeee get me a fan! Plus, can we be real here…music is so on point in this film. Making me sway side to side and practicing my hip curls.

Anyways, passion and ambition makes life and love better in my opinion. There’s nothing more attractive than being in a relationship with someone who is just as ambitious as you are. I’m a very ambitious girl, I got aspirations to the sky and I want nothing less for someone I date.

Obviously, when I got ambitious on my name tag, I’m clearly thinking of Wale’s “Ambitious Girl.”

Day 108: New Moon

Ditto.

Um. Jacob looks like he has a good weave in.

Okay, I get it. Everyone wants to be passionately seduced the way Edward does to Bella. And I get that Bella is supposed to represent average day Jane, hence why the seduction is even more enticing. I don’t know. I have no idea. Please help me.

Day 107: Twilight

Twlight w/ Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson

What. The. Fuck. I want my two hours back and I can’t believe I watched this fuckery. I get it, he bedazzles and she’s in dire need of some adoration and affection, this doesn’t change he’s still creepy as fuck (clearly, pardon my “fucks”).

I’ve literally dreaded this very moment where I needed to watch this film. Was I hoping for some enlightenment? Perhaps, but I should’ve known better. Forgive me, but I almost wanted to like it because of all the hype surrounding this. My friends have tormented me film after film about their awkwardly but fascinating obsession over this damned series. Grown ass women have literally drooled over the mere description of Edward. But for real though, like that bad? Like really? THAT BAD.

If it wasn’t clear before, it sure as hell clear now. I’m completely hating, on that Haterade without a doubt.

And now I need to watch New Moon. Insanity completely out the door.

James: Oh, still stubborn, aren’t we? Is that what makes you so special to Edward?

Day 90: The Last Song

  

The Last Song w/ Miley Cyrus

Nice try, Miley. Not good enough to buy.

Day 87: A Walk to Remember

A Walk to Remember w/ Mandy Moore & Shane West

So begins my Nicholas Sparks week. Essentially it’s a week of busting out my kleenex and putting my estrogen on overdrive. We all must admit, Sparks knows a way to everyone’s heart. This was one of the movies that’s sweet enough to make you cry without enacting any gag reflexes on any overtly cheesy scenes.

She was carefree but reserved. He was the hometown bad boy who found solace within her world. Jamie Sullivan represents the nice girls of America. Cool in her own way, even if she was the only who knew. I never lived in a small town, but do all small towns have the quintessential cool kids corner? Each year, do they have sign ups on who can look the most mysterious? Jokes aside, Jaime Sullivan made it hard for me to dislike her. Maybe because she reminded me of a cute animal that I just wanted to squeeze and root for in the big race. Don’t lie..we all know you totally did the whole “I want to be in two places at one time” bit, because I did.  Continue reading

Day 65: Grease

Grease w/ John Travolta & Olivia Newton-John

In this scenario, being a badass pays off. Don’t mind if I do.

I apologize to my neighbors for this one.

Day 64: She’s All That

She's All That w/ FPJ & RLC

Now I had my fair share of 90’s heartthrob mega crushes, the usual suspects – Leo DiCaprio, Justin Timberlake and of course, Freddie Prinze Jr. If you didn’t think that FPJ wasn’t the bane of existence for many rom-coms, you’re clearly mistaken.

Anyways, sometimes we need to allow others to help us change. It’s something of a conflicting issue for many because hell, we’re pretty damn satisfied with ourselves. I’m pretty damn satisfied with myself. But it certainly doesn’t  hurt to change a little for the better…right?

On some real shit – my insecurities sometimes overplay and sometimes overpower my own ability to recognize that I need to cut certain behaviors and/or attitudes. It takes someone who really cares about you to make you realize said bad behavior. After all, having bad attributes doesn’t makes you a bad ass by any means. Continue reading

Day 48: Romeo + Juliet

Romeo + Juliet, the shit version

In all fairness, I forgot how weird this movie is even by Shakespeare’s standards. Poor Paul Rudd.

This movie takes me back to my senior year in high school. Let’s play the embarrassing game. The story begins with Isidora deciding to audition for the role of Juliet. The role of Juliet goes to another student, Isidora gets casted as Lady Capulet. Isidora’s boyfriend somehow coincidentally gets casted as Lord Capulet. Isidora and said boyfriend break up during rehearsals. Isidora is stuck playing the wife of her ex-boyfriend. Awkward.

Day 44: The Graduate

The Graduate w/ Dustin Hoffman

See the post about work and life balance. If both fails, attend to an affair. I heard it’s all the hype.

I love The Graduate for plenty of reasons – the music, the acting, the cinematography. It truly is a film that has become a capstone of a generation and a great cult classic. What’s most capturing for me about this film is the aloofness Benjamin has about the affair and the rest of his life. It’s a lot like everyone else who just graduated. We think we know, but we really don’t. It probably wouldn’t help anyone if you fell in love with a girl, who’s mom you’ve been boning. Not a good scenario whatsoever. Lesson learned: say no to cougars.

On a side note, I choose this film particularly because it shows San Francisco. Well, of course. You know why.
