So, I was feeling all down and blue and I for some reason I started craving for a good movie. You know that feeling when you get a craving for a specific snack and all you want is just that snack, nothing else not even your other favorite food items but just that one thing. It was like that.
Suddenly my mind was like ‘Little watch French Kiss or Uptown Girl’, so I’m like okie dokie. But to my horror I couldn’t find them in my collection. I was shocked, surprised and a little darker shade of the blue I was earlier. So I’m searching, and searching, when I ended up finding this very sweet movie Ramona and Beezus.
I have already seen it a couple of times and that’s why it made me happy when I found it. And then bam, just like that I now wanted to watch it.
Not sure if people have liked this one but it is such a sweet movie. It’s about a 9 years old super hyper active little blue eyed girl Ramona and her family; her sister Beezus, aunt Beatrice, her cat Picky Picky, her baby sister and her parents. Ramona has a big imagination, creative mind, larger than life view of tiny stuff and she likes to invent words. Like Terrifical. It’s a good word, don’t you think.
But, unfortunately her too much energy always lands her in trouble making her an infamous troublemaker. This is a story of a 9 years old who is adored by everyone even Beezus her high school sister, who Ramona thinks of as the perfect girl. Ramona makes me want to go back to being a 9 years old and even a troublemaker, for worst she did was throw some good number of paint cans on their handsome neighbor’s car that ended up looking like an Easter Egg with four wheels.
Don’t you love movies that have power to make you cry and smile, even though you’ve watched it so many times that you can literally deliver the next dialogue before the lead character in it?
I was happy crying and now I wonder if there was a reason I couldn’t find both French Kiss and Uptown Girl. Which I’m sure I have.
If you need something sweet innocent and stress free then my friends I recommend Ramona and Beezus.
Last night to welcomed 2017 I watched Notting Hill, again, and this morning to make the first day of New Year special I watched La La Land, again.
How crazy is it to bump into someone not once but twice, and hate that person enough to show him a finger or shoulder butt her aside, only to fall in love so smoothly that it would feel that the only reason you had a horrible day was cause you were destined to meet? They say all you need is love but sometimes love is not enough, for those who dream.
Notting Hill and La La Land are two movies with two romantic fools, only both movies have different kinds of fools.
There are two kinds of fools, fools who love and fools who dream and often these are different kind of people; rarely them being same species. I, on the other hand, am just a fool who it seems is destined for no dream or love.
Side Note: La La Land made me miss Audrey Hepburn a little, YES! Funny Face.
I made sure I walked in 2017 with good movies. I only hope 2017 becomes a good a scene out of a good movie for me as well, a happy scene. A girl can only dream.
P.S HAPPY NEW YEAR, may 2017 does something magical for you too!!!!!!!
