My First Guest Post

I did my first guest post ever.  It's located here.  I feel like I'm a real blogger now, since other people like me enough to have me write on their blogs : )

But fear not, dearest minions, I am not using that blog post as an excuse to not do a proper post here.  I think you guys know me better than that by now.  So you get two posts for the price of one! And of course, the price of one is free, unless you feel compelled to donate to my not-going-blind fund, she says hopefully.

I have some movies to review for you today: Super 8, Crazy/Beautiful, and She's All That.

Super 8 was a fantastic movie, action-packed enough to make it worth watching in theaters.  Although, it was not so action-packed that it made my eyes have trouble focusing and caused me confusion.  That happens sometimes, like with the new Harry Potter.  The story was fairly unique, as unique as stories can be in these times, when so many movies have already been made.  Some sort of creature has come to a small town and is making life difficult.  It is causing disappearances and a few deaths.  Soldiers are trying to cover something up.  There are some kids who end up in the wrong place at the wrong time, and they get involved with it.  Besides that, there's this young love sort of thing going on.  I thoroughly enjoyed the movie.  I give it a 9 out of 10, merely for the fact that I feel like 10 out of 10 must be saved for the best films of all time, like the original Star Wars trilogy and Fifth Element and Stardust.

That brings me to the next movie.  G told me I should watch Crazy/Beautiful and She's All That, because they're his favorite love movies, so I did.  Crazy/Beautiful is the tale of a scholarly Latino boy meeting a somewhat crazy/partying/lashing out white girl.  They fall madly in love and are both positive influences on one another.  She teaches him to lighten up and enjoy life more, and he helps her to reconnect with her father.  It is a really good movie, and I enjoyed it immensely, and I don't normally watch love movies (I think you guys know that).  I would rank it up there with A Walk to Remember, but I might like it a little better, since it's not sad.  I give it 7 out of 10 stars.  G is trying to get me to enjoy life more, therefore the recommendation.

He took me out last night to have burgers, fries, and shakes.  We sat in his car and ate.  I introduce him to the deliciousness that is dipping your french fries in your milkshake.  It was especially perfect for those fries, since they were fairly salty.  Then, when he was driving me home, he kissed me at nearly every red light.  He's started calling me angel, which I really enjoy.  We are going to an art festival this weekend and I'm really looking forward to it.  I've never been to an art festival, and it looks like a lot of fun.  It's also pretty much 3 different art festivals all in the same vicinity, so it's pretty huge.

She's All That is the story of the most popular guy in school betting that he can turn any girl into the prom queen.  He makes a bet on it.  Enter geeky, klutzy art student girl.  He asks her out and gets rejected.  He starts borderline stalking her, showing up at her work, showing up at her house, and finally gets her to agree to hang out with him.  She becomes popular because of him, but remains the same person she was, only with a makeover.  Spoiler alert, but not like you couldn't see it coming.  She finds out about the bet and gets really mad.  Anyway, I won't give away the ending, although you can probably guess.  I give it 6 stars out of 10, mainly for being so predictable.  G insists that he didn't bet on me.  He claims that I'm really beautiful, and that I just don't realize it.

  1. She's All That was my favorite movie in high-school. It's really sweet that he kissed you at all the red lights :)
