Blogathon: Guilty Pleasure Movies

 

Jenna and Allie over at Flick Chicks have come up with a fantastic Blogathon idea to name and possibly shame yourself with your guilty pleasure movies. Which of those you just absolutely love and they might not actually be that great!

Here are the rules…

1 – You can choose and discuss as many or as few movies as you like. We both did a Top 10, but you can just choose 1 movie if you like. Just tell us a bit about the movie and why you like it so much.

2 – Please create a new post for our Blogathon, rather than linking an old post you may have already done.

3 – Please include our Blogathon Banner anywhere in your post

4 – The deadline for entries is Sunday, 31st August, so there’s plenty of time!

7 Cameron Diaz Films I Actually Like

After seeing The Other Woman at the cinema it got me thinking that I don’t particularly like Cameron Diaz so I thought I would try to see if I could pick seven films she’s in that I actually like! I think I just about managed to do it as well. Just thinking to her more recent roles I am still quite traumatised by that scene in The Counsellor . . .  Yes you know the one I mean with the car windscreen!

So the following are seven films she is in that I actually like! I guess it doesn’t mean I particularly like her character but that’s not massively important! I think in recent times she really has taken on some truly awful roles.

My Best Friends Wedding (1997) Vs Made of Honor (2008)

I love “My Best Friends Wedding” as you may already know I am a massive fan of Julia Roberts aka Jules in my world. Yet it is quite a strange film in terms of the ending really isnt what you would expect from Hollywood but is it more realistic? In my world yes it is. Its heartbreaking at times but thats life isn’t it. I have probably watched this film more times that people can actually imagine. Quite a few months ago I eventually got round to see “Made of Honor” which I had heard was like MBFW but the other way round. I however have to totally disagree with that and this post will end up in a rant that men always win no matter what the situation is.

 

Made and released more than 10 years apart really shows the direction in which romantic comedies aka rom-coms have come over the years. That direction is down. Don’t get me wrong some have been quite good like “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “(500) Days of Summer”. But way exactly have I enjoyed these? They have more realistic moments in them and manage to connect to the audience in different ways. Especially (500) Days of Summer it is so realistic and good how throughout the film it reminds us it is not a love story it is a story about love, and showing how different your expectations are in comparison to what reality is.
