DAY 19: MY FAVORITE MOVIE
Well this may very well be the hardest post so far. For those of you who know me, you know that I’m not a HUGE movie person…I’m trying to get better but it’s a sloooooooow process. I can’t really think of ONE movie that I love more than the others. As far as genres go, I typically go for Rom Coms, dramas, (occasionally) comedies and animated movies (i.e., Up, Beauty & The Beast, etc.).
I guess if I HAD to pick a favorite movie, I’d probably pick something like “Silver Linings Playbook” “Up” or “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” (no judging). And yes, I realize I just named 3 movies but I’m just gonna need you to work with me – lol!
While Silver Linings Playbook had plenty of comedic moments, the story it tells is quite dark. It follows two people that are hampered by mental illness and natural despondence as they try and find their place in a world that seems nothing short of cold. It’s funny, sad, tragic, compelling and downright beautifully done. Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper do an incredible job of making you feel every emotion that they feel and in turn become an unlikely couple that you can’t help but root for! If you haven’t seen it, I would 1000% recommend that you do so!
Pixar hit the nail on the head with this one! Up is an incredible story of life and love. This film follows a grumpy old man (Carl) as he is determined to honor his late wife’s wishes to travel to Paradise Falls. He meets a boy scout, a talking dog and a giant exotic bird on his journey and they become more than he could have ever imagined. Despite losing his wife, he gains a family that he couldn’t live without. If you’re looking for a heartwarming story about life and love, check it out!
How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days is a rom com classic. I’m pretty sure everyone has seen this movie…more than once. But in the event that you haven’t, let me give you the high points. 1. Matthew McConaughey. I’m not sure there’s anything else I need to say about that. 2. Kate Hudson. Again, not sure I need to say anything else. She’s beautiful (to me at least) and I love the two of them together! But no seriously, it’s a cute story about 2 people trying to get ahead in their careers and falling for each other at the end…DUH! It’s cute! If you like Matthew (swoon), Kate, or Rom Coms in general, then I think you might like this one!
So those are a few of my favorites. What are your favorite movies? Anything you think I just HAVE to see!?! Let me know!
