Signs as movie quotes
  • Aries: Sometimes I don't think people realize how lonely it is to be a kid. Like... you don't matter.
  • Taurus: Sweetheart, you can't buy the necessities of life with cookies.
  • Gemini: It's called a sense of humor - you should get one - they're nice.
  • Cancer: If you were happy every day of your life you wouldn't be a human being. You'd be a game-show host.
  • Leo: The night of the fight, you may feel a slight sting. That's pride fucking with you. Fuck pride. Pride only hurts. It never helps. You fight through that shit.
  • Virgo: You can't change who people are without destroying who they were.
  • Libra: If the sky were to suddenly open up... there would be no law... there would be no rule. There would only be you and your memories... the choices you've made and the people you've touched.
  • Scorpio: It's mercy, compassion and forgiveness I lack. Not rationality.
  • Sagittarius: Well, it's a crazy, fucked up world! And we're all just barely floating along, waiting for somebody that can walk on water.
  • Capricorn: You think you're free? I'm free! You don't know what freedom is! I'm free! I can breathe! And you - you're gonna go choke on your average fuckin' mediocre life!
  • Aquarius: One thousand years from now, there won't be any guys and there won't be any girls, just wankers. Sounds all right to me.
  • Pisces: The first time I ever saw a box jellyfish, I was twelve. Our father took us to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. I never forgot what he said... That it was the most deadly creature on earth. To me it was just the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen.

Logan Lerman is an amazing actor. I remember when I first saw him in Percy Jackson and thought he was cute, so I decided to investigate (or obsess, however you like to call it) and I watched everything he’s a part of. 

Cute doesn’t do him enough justice though. He is, but so much more than that. When his characters cry, I cry. When they’re happy, I’m happy. He lets you feel the emotions his character has so deep , it’s crazy. I mean, he started sooo young, but even then he put everything he had in to it. And he just keeps getting better and better.

I remember watching The Perks Of Being A Wallflower and having all of these mixed emotions. It’s such a powerful story and I honestly couldn’t think of a better Charlie. (shoutout to the entire cast though, because they’re all pretty freaking amazing)  

Now I can talk all day about how wonderful Logan is, but most people already know or have to go see it for themselves. I really just wanted to share my portrait I made of him with all of you, to let you know how much I appreciate him. <3 

Top 10 Movies Everyone Should Watch (For Anonymous).

I don’t know if anyone wants to know why I chose each of these movies but I will write a little bit about why anyway, to defend my choice, if nothing else.

10. Requiem for a Dream (2000)

External image

This movie looks at addiction. It’s kind of brutal on your emotions and got to me quite a lot but it’s one of those movies that needs to make you feel like that. It’s upsetting but it’s a very good movie.


9. Secret Window (2004)

External image

I haven’t watched this in a while, but if it’s as good as I remember it being then it is rightfully on this list. A very good adaption of the Stephen King story. A very interesting, mysterious kind of movie.

8. Inception (2010)

External image

This is a great movie, and even if it wasn’t, the scene pictured above makes it worth watching alone. The idea behind this is unique and it is so so so gripping. A lot of people are confused by it but I don’t think that’s a downside; it’s a very well thought out movie and if you are confused by it, I don’t think you’d at all mind re-watching it.

7. The Machinist (2004)

External image


This movie is very clever. The foreshadowing used in it is superb and It keeps you guessing until the very end. It ended up being a lot more moving than I initially expected it to be.

6. Filth (2013)

People may say I just like this movie because it’s set in Scotland and that’s where I live but I think this movie was absolutely fantastic regardless of that. It was advertised as a comedy but, though it is darkly hilarious at parts, it is not a comedy. This movie will get to you. It literally left me with my jaw hanging in the cinema and stayed with me for a long time after I watched it. James Mcavoy’s acting in it is also brilliant. Definitely, definitely worth watching. A fantastic movie.
It is released on DVD in the UK on February 10th.

5. Donnie Darko (2001)

External image

This was the first movie I ever saw that made me think and totally changed the way I looked at movies. It really moved me when I first watched it at the age of twelve and it still moves me when I watch it. It’s mysterious and dark and interesting and haunting: a great movie.

4. Memento (2000)

External image

This movie will fuck with you. I would probably say this movie is a masterpiece. It’s filmed in a fantastic way, and I don’t want to say too much about it but I have never seen another movie where everything was so different from what it seemed. Very unpredictable.

3. American Psycho (2000)

External image

This is a strange movie. I don’t think it got it’s point across as well as the novel did but it also isn’t as stomach-wrenchingly vile as parts of the novel was so that’s good. This movie is actually quite funny but it makes a much deeper, darker statement, it’s very enjoyable to watch and is very thought-provoking. It is different from the novel but is in no way disappointing. A fantastic movie from a fantastic book. Patrick Bateman is also, oddly, a very likable character, and Christian Bale plays him brilliantly.

2. The Butterfly Effect (2004)

External image

This was the first movie that ever really, really fucked with me, and it’s still the movie that fucks with me the most. Watch the director’s cut. This movie will take you on an emotional roller-coaster and will stay on your mind for a long time after you watch it but it is so worth it.
This is 100% a movie that everyone should watch.

1. Fight Club (1999)

External image

And, of course, here it is: Fight Club.
I don’t care if this is cliche. Fight Club is the greatest movie I have ever seen and probably always will be. Every second of this movie is enjoyable to watch. I don’t think I can adequately explain why this movie is so great so I’m not going to insult it by trying, but I will say this: this movie changed my life, and if you don’t ever watch it, you are truly missing out.
“It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we are free to do anything.”

Well thanks to anyone who read this, and please don’t insult my chosen movies; I know there are so many more amazing movies that aren’t on this list but I could only choose 10.

Let’s Blow These 8 Movies

Have you ever watched a movie and then you wondered what the hell actually happened there? You needed some times to think and conclude the ideas of the story. Well, this shit hits me few times. I don’t know whether my brain which needs an extra time to dissolve it or it is the movie which actually stupid. Thus, I’ve found some movies that were not stupid and It was actually my brain which needed an extra time to dissolve them. Here, I’ve listed 8 movies that made me wonder while I was watching them. You can try them if you haven’t :D 

1. Silence of The Lambs (1991)

A treasure for crime genre lovers and also a treasure for any movie-genre lovers. Silence of The Lambs is absolutely stunning. I do really love the suspense created from the beginning to the end of the story. The story is about a young FBI cadet who is given duty to interview a cannibal serial killer in order to gain information about a now-wanted serial killer who skins his victims. I rate this movie 8.5/10.

2. Se7en (1995)

Another treasure for crime genre lovers or maybe it can turn people into crime genre lovers. Se7en is an interesting movie which gives ‘fresh idea’ for the crime motive. It is about two detectives who are hunting for a serial killer. The serial killer commits murder based on The Deadly Seven Sins. I rate this movie 8.4/10.

3. The Butterfly Effect (2004)

This time is not about crime. It plays with psychological and supernatural thing. It mixes science and something that can not be easily accepted by our brain. The Butterfly Effect tells us a story about a man who is suffering from his trauma. But somehow, he can travel to his past several times and change his life. Different action that he takes at the beginning causes different life that he lives. I rate this movie 7.7/10.

4. Shutter Island (2010)

THIS is the one that made me keep guessing and guessing about the ending. There were so many questions that I’d like to ask while watching it. Shutter Island tells about a U.S Marshal officer who goes to a hospital for criminal insane in a remote island called Shutter Island. He tries to uncover the ‘strange’ things happen there. Shockingly, he uncovers something worst about the hospital that turns back his mind. I rate this movie 8.3/10.

5. Gone Girl (2014)

A FAB surprising plot. I was feeling like being turned upside down by it. Another awesome thinking poured into a story. Gone Girl is about a man who is trying to find his missing wife. He is being confused by things that indicate him murder his wife while his wife is actually still alive. I rate this movie 8.3/10.

6. Nocturnal Animals (2016)

Nocturnal Animals is a brilliant movie. It is different. I love how the story develops through its hidden messages. It feels like trying to understand a literature work. I was so mesmerized with the concept of the story. Nocturnal Animals tells a story about a rich gallery owner who receives a thrilling novel written by her ex husband, Through the novel, there is actually a revenge that her ex husband tries to reveal.  I rate this movie 8.4/10.

7. The Girl on The Train (2016)

A well-done plot twist. The Girl on The Train is definitely a good movie to watch. It will make you always questioning about what the hell is actually wrong with the protagonist. The Girl on The Train tells about a woman who has problem with her drinking (alcohol) and her previous marriage life. Those two really affect her life in the present days. She is often being played by her mind until one day, she witnesses something that change her life forever. I rate this movie 7.9/10

8. Get Out (2017)

2017 also has its own mind-thrilling movie. This movie is pretty unique because it involves race issue, crime, and science into one. The twist will entrance you; how humans can create such a thinking. What thinking? If I tell you it’s gonna be a spoiler, you had better go watch it to find out. Get Out is about a black man, Chris,  who is invited by his white girlfriend’s family. They seem so nice and friendly and also strange at the same time. It is not too late for Chris to realize what actually is going on, what secret is actually hidden there. I rate this movie 8.0/10.
