Thursday Movie Picks-Star-Crossed Lovers
Before I begin, let me tell you of a story between a man whom I would love to create stars over his head...my hubby. I am smiling over clenched teeth since he started to show an interest again, in the computer....this is a bad thing because he has no idea about computers, hell, he has no idea how to use the remote! He downloaded some game his brother sent him and he had difficulties with it so he deleted it....with his new e-mail. Last night he decided to try and get this back so he spoke to his brother for quite a while but, in the end, he just told me his brother needs to come out. Now, I decide to try to go on my blog and ...I can't! Why? It now says my Google+ address is his e-mail (which he spelled wrong) and no clue about the password. I love him, but when I asked him what he did, he claimed it was my fault. You know what I saw......BAM! POW! KAZAM!! His brother came by today and let's hope I can get on my blog at home.
This week's movie theme is Star-Crossed lovers. I am never one for just a romance story so I am having a tough time with this one. If you wish to find out what the others have picked, head on over to Wandering Through The Shelves. These are my 3 that I picked...
What more can be said about this great film except, if you haven't seen it, what is wrong with you??-lol. Just about everything takes place at Rick's Cafe owned by the tough talking Bogart. Intrigue, spies, Nazis...you name it happens in this club. This has a superb cast, my favourite being Claude Rains as the prefect. All seems aok until Bergman comes back into Bogart's life, or should I say Ilse and Rick. Rick has certain papers everyone wants their hands on and you wonder who will Ilse end up with, Rick or her Husband... Watch the movie!
2. ROMAN HOLIDAY-1953
This is a great comedy with a dramatic flair. The beautiful Audrey Hepburn stars as a sheltered princess visiting Rome on a tour. She wishes she could be a normal, carefree girl so she escapes her life and meets...Gregory Peck who happens to be a reporter, but she doesn't know this. You walk with these 2 in Rome (let's dream) as she experiences many things for the very first time. It is a very sweet movie with a truth that you wish would not be so.
3. LOVE STORY-1970
"Love means never having to say you're sorry".....WTF??? What mind bending trip was she on when she said this? A boy from a wealthy family meets a girl from a much less wealthy family and they fall in love while at school. The boy's father disapproves. of the union and so begins a zzzzzzzzzzz, oops sorry, I fell asleep there for a minute. This was a huge hit back in the day and I still don't know why but I bet many do like this movie, just not me. I won't give all away but it is a love story tear jerker that makes me want to turn the channel and watch the 3 Stooges, which I do like by the way:)
What 3 films will you pick? I bet The Notebook will be big this week:)
