Moving Movies Fridays. Why? Because it is a life love. I mean, I really have a love for movies - all movies - they should hire me as a critic just so that I can go see all the movies all the time for free. Seriously! Anyway, Moving movie Fridays we'll post movies we've watched during the week, their box office mojo for opening day (I love box office mojo), what we thought of the movie, maybe why we watched, and ask what you think or if you've seen it.
We have two movies for our first Moving Movie Friday - Old and New.
Ghost: 1990 Rated PG 13.
Patrick Swayze plays a ghost who teams up with a psychic (played by Whoopi Goldberg) to uncover the truth behind his murder - and rescue his sweetheart (played by Demi Moore) from a similar fate.
The story behind how I came to watch this movie last night at 1:50 am. I was talking to an associate about Titanic (one of my fav movies, it happened to come on Bravo last night), and I was explaining how it was an amazing movie and is meant to make you sad, pissed, and depressed by killing off Jack. Some how or another, we got to talking about sad ass movies that make you cry. He happened to mention this movie "Ghost". (I rarely cry when watching movies. Give me a book, OMG it's like a river on my phone or pages.) I tell him I've never seen, and he goes on to tell how amazing this movie is and assured me it will bring a tear to my eyes, although he refused to tell me what the movie is about. (By the way, I am all about people spoiling movies, books, and endings for me. I hate surprises and I prefer to know what's going to happen.) Anyway, I assured him I'd watch it and have my opinion for him today. Which was perfect for Moving Movies Friday.
The movie was a good movie, romantic, suspenseful, cute, small funny parts and Patrick Swazye is hot (Duh). It did not make me cry or all overly emotional. The part that did get that warm feeling in my chest that made my eyes slightly shake with a tinged burn...was when Sam (Patrick Swayze) possessed Oda Mae Brown's (Whoopi Goldberg) body. And, in a touch, Demi Moore (I can't remember her character's name and I'm too lazy to Google it right now.) could tell it was him touching her. The chemistry and emotion in that moment alone made the movie absolutely amazing. Their closeness and love - you could see and feel between them was extraordinary. Even though it wasn't him, but Whoopi she was touching. "AWE" fucking amazing dude.
I got a few laughs in. I am a fan of betrayal in books and movies, so when I saw his best friend (I assume Carl was his best friend). When I saw that it was Carl who set up Sam to get mugged, resulting in his death. Then plotted against killing Sam's girlfriend. I was like "YEAH, GO CARL! I HOPE YOU FUCKING DIE. YOU DECEITFUL BASTARD!" Not to mention this pessimistic asshole tried to sleep with Demi Moore (Again, this is Sam's chick.) in front of Sam. (Not that he knew Sam was there.) But still, and she kissed him or let him kiss her. This made me so angry. But whatever, it's just a movie.
The movie was long as shit, might I add, and I think it was like 3 in the AM when it finally went off. Overall I like it, the characters were cool, the feeling was nice.
Movie Number Two.
Beware - there is going to be the use of a lot of vulgar language.
Fault of Our Stars: 2014 Rating PG 13
BTW, I'm still fucking depressed a day later. I'm going to go read a book. TTYL
