Do you have a guilty pleasure movie?
maybe mannequin but i dont feel guilty? i love all the corny romcoms. i might feel a little guilty about the notebook but that’s because it became such a meme. i didn’t realize it had become such a Big Deal until years after i watched it three times in the theatre. it was the culmination of my leading man dream for ryan gosling because i had this crush on him since this bit part in remember the titans and i thought his character was going to have more of a main part and when he didn’t and the credits started rolling i was like….aghast. like he is Clearly a leading man what has happened. so i was lying in wait for him to become a leading man lmaooooo.

the only marriage proposal i will accept

it’s daybreak. i’m meandering through a field on my family estate. i look up and see u there striding towards me in tight pants, riding boots, a half open shirt, and an overcoat. the music swells. u stutter through what is possibly the most romantic proposal of all time. i kiss ur knuckles and gaze into ur eyes as sunrise breaks over the horizon.

What's ur opinion on the 2005 p&p?

FUCK THIS MOVIE. I HATE THIS MOVIE. There is so much whack shit in this film:

  • the five sisters are KEIRA KNIGHTLEY, amy dunne, johanna mason, carey mulligan of ‘drive’, doctor who episode ‘blink’ and being the future mom of a mumford’s son fame, and the main girl from st trinians???? WHAT KIND OF WHITE PEOPLE PERFECTION their dad is president snow and their mum was vera in noted television procedural vera???? OKAY
  • DARCY IS 6’2
  • MR BINGLEY WAS OCTAVIUS IN ROME AND ALSO HAS THE CHEEKBONES OF A TOLKIEN ELF
  • JUDI DENCH 
  • this movie is just Joe Wright Period Period Piece but it is THE EPITOME OF THIS VERY SPECIFIC GENRE. HE’S NOT GONNA TOP THIS AND HE NEEDS TO STOP TRYING the panning shot of the peak district??? ‘Liz On Top Of The World’ plays in the bg it’s the ULTIMATE. 
  • HOT LIZARD KING WICKHAM
  • and okay i love how this movie shows the bennets as an actual FAMILY
  • like they’re messy and tactile and they talk over one another it’s so genuine
  • AND I LOVE THEIR HOUSE WITH THE CREEPING VINES
  • and okay the COSTUMES IN THIS MOVIE OH MY GODDD
  • everyone’s white gowns in the netherfield ball scene? YOOOOOO
  • honestly the production value of this movie is nuts
  • it’s the AESTHETIC
  • alright so jane austen novels are awesome and they show a lot about society and relationships in the regency era
  • and the thing about 2005 pride and prejudice is that it doesn’t only show the verbal sparring/tension between lizzie and darcy
  • but the sexual tension as well
  • THE SEXUAL UNDERTONES OF THIS MOVIE
  • OH MY GOD
  • IT’S SO FUCKING MUCH
  • like every interaction is loaded with like sexy LOOKS and body language
  • and like they don’t even kiss but it’s so obvious they wanna bang
  • THEY WANT TO BANG
  • SO
  • BAD
  • it’s like raw magnetism
  • it’s something people would write ridiculous articles in cosmo about
  • like that bit where darcy helps lizzie into the carriage???????
  • HE HELPS HER UP
  • (IT’S THE 1800S, PEOPLE DONT TOUCH)
  • she looks at him, scandalised
  • HE WALKS AWAY, FLEXING HIS HAND AS IF IT’S BURNING
  • ROMANCE
  • there’s this scene where lizzie and darcy are dancing in a crowded room but they’re so focused on each other the other people LITERALLY MELT AWAY
  • LIKE THEY’RE THE ONLY TWO PEOPLE IN THE GOD DAMN UNIVERSE
  • (sidebar: HER HAIR IN THIS SCENE. GOD DAMN.)
  • also THE TRACKING SHOT THROUGH THE PARTY OH MY GOD 
  • and okay, like
  • let’s not even GET INTO the declaration scene
  • after a heavy dose of SEXILY AVOIDING EACH OTHER’S GLANCES IN CHURCH the sexual tension crescendos
  • UNDER THE AWNING OF SOME ANCIENT RUIN
  • IN THE POURING RAIN
  • he advances; he admits his love
  • she REBUKES him
  • affronted, he insults pretty much everything about her
  • she responds but rebuking him again but WORSE
  • but the sexual tension’s still there
  • there’s just the noise of the rain
  • the air between them is so charged it could power like
  • a small city probably
  • THEY’RE SUPER CLOSE
  • NO TOUCHEY
  • AND THEN
  • HE LEANS FORWARD, EYES LOCKED ON HER LIPS
  • HE’S GONNA KISS HER
  • SHE WANTS HIM TO KISS HER
  • HE DOESN’T KISS HER
  • THE 
  • FUCKING
  • TENSION
  • I CAN’T EVEN WATCH THIS BIT HONESTLY
  • and she regrets it immediately after and then he DROPS OFF THE LETTER AND SHE’S JUST SITTING THERE IN SHOCK REALLY
  • I KNOW BABE. I KNOW
  • and it’s the kind of movie you can rewatch a hundred times and it’s still as amazing as the first time and you pick up all these little things you missed
  • it was like my 20th watch when i realised that mary is in love with mr collins
  • and ok THE LIVING SCULPTURES OF PEMBERLEY SCENE
  • all the pemberly scenes really like when they show up and lizzie sees this bomb ass house that could’ve been hers and she’s just like, ‘hahahhahahahaha i fucked up, i fucked up. i fucked up so bad im sorry, im trash’
  • AND WHEN SHE MEETS GEORGIANA AND SHE LOOKS AT LIZZIE AND DARCY LIKE SMIRK.EMOJI
  • she knows
  • and the scene where DARCY AND BINGLEY PRACTICE WHAT HE’S GOING TO SAY TO JANE
  • REGENCY SOFT BRO AF
  • and the scene before when the bennets rush to make themselves look presentable and it’s sooooo awkward and forced HONESTLY THEY ARE THE BEST
  • AND JANE AND BINGLEY LOWKEY OTP FINALLY GETTING TOGETHER
  • AND JANE STANDING THERE IN THE SUNBEAM LOOKING LIKE A LITERAL ANGEL AND TEARS IN HER EYES AS SHE SAYS YES
  • and then
  • DARCY
  • LOOKING LIKE SOME FABIO SHIT
  • WALING ACROSS THE MOORS
  • TO HER
  • WHAT THE HELLLLLL
  • THE MUSIC SWELLS
  • HE’S RUGGED
  • ‘YOU MUST KNOW… SURELY YOU MUST KNOW IT WAS ALL FOR YOU’
  • s t o p

“ugh. you LOVE me?”
“don’t make that face. it’s not like i want to. you’re loud and you talk too much about television for an adult and every single member of your family has friended me on facebook despite the fact that i’ve never spoken to most of them, and most of them have very poor punctuation. in fact, this whole situation is very embarrassing. like herpes. but like herpes, i don’t think it’s curable without taking action. so here i am. telling you. i love you.”
“can you even hear yourself right now?”
“so … what are your thoughts?”
“what are my thoughts? about your i-love-you-like-herpes speech?? which, p.s., herpes is incurable. that shit’s always gonna flare up again.”
“exactly. the metaphor is appropriate.”
