film meme - (2/10) favorite 90s teen movies 10 Things I Hate About You (1999) - “I know how difficult it must be for you to overcome all those years of upper middle-class suburban oppression. Must be tough…”
“The bird, the pin, the song, the berries, the watch, the cracker, the dress that burst into flames. I am the mockingjay. The one that survived despite the Capitol’s plans. The symbol of the rebellion.”
But I’m doing it anyway because I want to. What are you going to do about it? That’s what I thought.
Here we go and order is meaningless.
That Thing You Do.
Gone With The Wind
Star Wars (1 thru 6)
Its a Wonderful Life
Catch Me If You Can
and even though it is still disturbing every time
I love movies. There are a lot more. I’m just naming some off the top of my head. I really love old movies like Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton and I want to start watching some of the old “pre code” movies to see how naughty my grandparents really were. I love foreign films, dubbing or subtitles don’t bother me. Lets face it, I’m interested in almost everything. Oh weird movies. The weirder the better. I once watched a movie I think from the Czech Republic about an evil tree stump named Otik. I forget the name. It may have been “Otik The Evil Baby Tree Stump” but I can’t remember.
Princess Ann: I have to leave you now. I’m going to that corner there and turn. You must stay in the car and drive away. Promise not to watch me go beyond the corner. Just drive away and leave me as I leave you. Joe Bradley: All right. Princess Ann: I don’t know how to say goodbye. I can’t think of any words. Joe Bradley: Don’t try.
1. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - I think this was the best Harry Potter movie, due to accuracy and pure nostalgia. The Goblet of Fire came out on my 10th birthday, and it was my last and best birthday party. The Goblet of Fire was the movie where everyone looked their characters, and the first time we got to see a new side of the magical world.
2. The Devil Wears Prada - Although the book sucked, the movie captivates me through the use of beautiful fashion. Also I’m hella gay and everyone in this is beautiful.
3. Better Than Chocolate - I think this is the best lesbian movie out there. And let’s not forget to mention the best part of this movie, Judy! This transwoman captivated all our hearts, and I leaped for joy when she and Francis finally got together. I didn’t see any other gay movie in the 90′s show a lesbian couple that included a transwoman. Plus Francis’ reactions to the advances of Judy matched the overall feelings towards gay in the 90′s. 10/10.
4. The Outsiders - I haven’t seen this movie in a while, but I do remember the overall feeling of it was beautiful. It matches the book’s vibe exactly, so I give it 5 stars!
5. Catching Fire - Although I haven’t read this book, it was so much better than Hunger Games! It fit the vibe of the series much more, with all the violence, suspense, and overall these-are-the-problems-of-our-society-now feel. Which is what a dystopia novel/movie should exactly point out and feel like.
6. The Birdcage - This is an under-looked movie in Robin William’s repertoire. Although he had a very transphobic and homophobic movie in Mrs. Doubtfire, this kind of made up for it. This movie is always full of laughs, due to the ever-talented Nathan Lane.
7. Camp Takota - Although this was the first movie in the Holy Trinity’s lives, it still made their audience feel things. They brought the vibe of that first summer camp you can never forget. Also Hannah Hart KILLED it! Although she had a small part, the fact that she was a non-subtext lesbian in a straight-mainstream movie was refreshing. Although it was full of plot holes, we didn’t care.
8. Mulan - Strong female character led by Eddie Murphy with great songs and a guy who thinks he’s gay throughout it? Sign me up!
9. Stardust - How could I forget Stardust? Neil Gaiman is my idol, and this movie adaption of his book is unforgettable! It’s like His Dark Materials but in a better movie and a crossdressing Danny Devito. Who could ask for more?
10. Grease - My mom literally had to lock this movie away from me when I was 8 because I watched it too much. Also because Rizo inspired me to try to French Kiss my mom when I was four. idk.
