When all I want is you :: Monday Movies

When reviewing a list of favorite movies of mine recently I discovered an interesting trend in titles and genres. I noticed, that among the three-hundred plus films, the selections that would fall into the love and romance category are mostly from a decade (or more) ago, and the ones that would be segregated into the cringe-worthy “Rom-Com” category ( I hate that term), they all seem to have been borne of the 90’s, wavering with hesitation at the start of the 2000’s, and disappearing without much of a death rattle into nothingness. Sure, there are exceptions, most of them plucked from the obscure, “indie” defined, accidentally stumbled on via Netflix variety, but for the most part their inclusion in my list of choices has declined to near extinction. What has become of the cinematic love story? Did we leave our love of love back in the 90’s? Continue reading When all I want is you :: Monday Movies

My Top 300 Movies :: 121-125

121. The Family Stone  Dysfunctional family holiday stories are definitely something I can relate to, and have a soft spot for. I am also a huge fan of the ensemble cast film when it is done right, which here, with The Family Stone, it is done right. My heart always goes out to Meredith (Sarah Jessica Parker) who comes into the family as an outsider, notably different than the rest of the family, and who is basically abandoned by her fiance, whose family this is, in the first place. I’ve been there, in her shoes, though I never did have … Continue reading My Top 300 Movies :: 121-125

What we miss :: song of the day

“You’ll see when you move out it just sort of happens one day, one day and it’s just gone, and you can never get it back. It’s like you get homesick for a place that doesn’t exist. I mean it’s like this rite of passage, you know.
