Like TV shows, I also love movies. Last semester I took two film classes and they were some of the most interesting classes I’ve taken so far. The film industry is fascinating to me. I wish I knew more about films because I feel so stupid when I hear other people critique them. I’m getting better at it though and I just love a good movie.
Here’s the thing with movies though- I treat them like books. Yes, I have my favorite books but I don’t remember why they’re my favorites. I also love really stupid movies, like the Lifetime movies. No joke the first week they were on Netflix I watched nine of them. I love the cheesy, corny things in life, especially movies. I like the ones where they like evaluate a kidnapper or murderer, it makes people’s lives so interesting. It’s terrible but I could watch any Lifetime movie (besides Christmas Shoes) all day everyday and just be content with my life.
But real movies now- obviously I love every Harry Potter and I’m not going to get into that because I’ve talked about it so many times but just keep that in mind. I love Harry Potter.
My all time favorite movie is “Perks of Being a Wallflower” it’s just so beautiful and the message is kind of a cliche now but I still love it. I love Emma Watson and Logan Lerman and I think the two of them together just made a beautiful film. This is will always be one of my favorite movies. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it.
I also really like “Clueless”. It’s just very fun and light hearted. The ending is odd and SPOILER ALERT but I think it’s kind of creepy that she ends up with her step-brother. Yes, he is cute, and no, that’s not illegal but they still grow up together so for the brother/sister relationships to turn into a romantic relationship is kind of weird. However, it is just a good light hearted movie.
The last movie that I say I would like off the top of my head is “Stuck in Love” it’s just a very interesting concept and family that’s so different from my own. I like to see how other people live through movies and I think that’s a perfect example of that.
What are some of your favorite movies? Like ones that a lot of people don’t know about.
