random thursday: favorite feel good movies
Some people enjoy eating. Some enjoy running. Some enjoy writing.
I enjoy movies.
Don't get me wrong. I love all of those as well (Reading is probably a tie for my favorite...)
But there is something that a good movie just can't replace.
Oh, Drew. Look how cute you are.
This movie is a childhood favorite. I watched it over and over again when I was a kid to the point where the paper VHS box was so wrinkled we had to throw it away. The DVD I have now is kind of scratched up too - that's how much I freaking love this movie.
It's a classic Cinderella story with a dreamy prince and an adorable Drew Barrymore. What's not to love?
The Time Traveler's Wife
So I know I already totally talked about the book being my favorite. And I kind of based the movie in that post. But, the movie is still a real-life personification of the book I love most. So I still have to love it, even a little, right?
In all honesty, I just love the story this movie tells. It's such a beautiful love story (more perfect than The Notebook, in my opinion!) and I watch it both when I am sad and happy about love. It's just that perfect.
And I also really want their wedding. It's gorgeous.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Agghh. This movie. I have such a love-hate relationship with it. It is just so truthfully good.
It's another movie I watch no matter how I am feeling in terms of love. Without fail, it makes me weep no matter how I feel - in such a good way, though! They're such a tragically beautiful couple with such a doomed relationship - a modern day telling of Romeo & Juliet that really makes you think.
And Jim Carrey doing drama is kind of the best thing ever.
Moulin Rouge is the movie that defines both me as a teenager and me as a person. It was the first movie/musical/anything to make me feel passion (like I do about theatre today) and I blame my obsession with musical theatre on it!
Ewan McGregor is the hottest thing in the world. And he's singing? With beautiful lighting and scenery in the background? Is this real? I don't care that the end is kind of sad - the whole 7/8s of the movie that is not sad is perfect.
If you don't agree with me, we can't be friends.
