VALENTINE'S DAY WEEKEND MARATHON
We loved it so much last year, we decided to do it again. Last year with macarons, this year with chocolate mousse and cream puffs. 😍
- •P.S. I Love You (2007)I am usually not a Gerard Butler fan, but I liked him in this movie! Really sweet and emotional. Definitely on the verge of tears a few times. So happy with that ending. 🙌🏽
- •Top Five (2014)I literally randomly put this on because I was waiting for @karebear to go to Publix and didn't want to watch something on our list without her, but she liked it so much that she stayed and watched, haha! I really liked that it addressed life after sobriety in a way I hadn't really seen before. Had a few scenes I skipped because they made me uncomfortable 😳. Loved seeing so many incredible guest stars - Michael Che, Leslie Jones, Jay Pharoah, Anders Holm?!
- •How to Be Single (2016)I already told you guys how much I love this film. I still love it just as much the second time around. I literally want to rewatch it again, especially for the baby store scene. "Did I just win the lottery?!"
- •Monte Carlo (2011)I watched this in theaters years ago and put this on while waiting for @karebear to get some work done/wake up? I'm not sure, lol. It's a cute movie for when you're a pre-teen, but at age 22, I didn't mind watching for the clothes and Cory Monteith. 😭
- •Sabrina (1954)Audrey Hepburn's character is so dumb in love, but I feel like there are so many people like that that I can't fault the film, lol. Bogart and Holden were great in their respective parts. Enjoyable, but nothing special. Curious about the 1997 remake now.
- •The Seven Year Itch (1955)OH MY GOSH wayyyyy better than I expected. Ewell was MADE for his part. He's neurotic and has completely misplaced confidence and you know he's doing something wrong, but you're still laughing at his antics. I LOVED Monroe's character. She knows exactly what she wants; she's not as dumb as she seems. The ending fight scene went over the top for me, however.
- •Forget Paris (1995)People always talk about how romcoms address the chase of love, but not what happens after a couple gets together. Well, here you go. Billy Crystal wrote and directed this one. I thought it was very well done - touched on a LOT of very real marital issues from living with a parent to pregnancy struggles. You could see both perspectives; I didn't feel like it demonized either person. Love how the title is drawn in to the film.
- •Annie Hall (1977)PURE. GENIUS. SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST. I started watching this during winter break and then loved it so much that I decided to save the rest for this marathon. I now understand why every romcom lover freaks out over this film. Woody's writing is absolutely remarkable and something I look forward to studying more. I was surprised how much I liked Diane's voice! If only people realized how thought-provoking and interesting romcoms could be...
