Bueller. Bueller?

Like most of the movies on the list, I really have no good excuse for not having seen “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” other than I’m an idiot. It’s only been five minutes and I already want to watch it again! Here’s a few things I yelled at the TV while watching:

-Holy Matthew Broderick!
-Oh look, it’s that chick from “Dirty Dancing”! (I just saw that for the first time last year.)

-“Bueller. Bueller?” Now I get it!
-This Mr. Rooney guy is a creep. Ewww.
-Look at that computer!
-And wait, is that a payphone?!
-I can’t believe I’ve never watched this before. It’s adorable!
-What kind of a name is Sloane for a girl?!

-That car!
-Chicago!
-I’ll marry you Ferris Bueller… Sigh. 
-Parades should be like this in real life!

-Whoa! It’s Charlie Sheen! And he’s playing himself from the future.
-No, Cameron! Not the car! Oh, boy.
-So many unrealistic things going on with this race home scene, but Imma just go with it.
-Awww. What a cute ending. Ferris is kind of a brat though, right?

Don’t You Forget About Me

image

Last summer, my friend Sécia took me to the Forever Hollywood Cemetery to see “The Breakfast Club” for the very first time. Considering this movie was released the year I was born, it wasn’t TOO hard to believe I hadn’t seen it yet. (Yes it was.)

Unlike me, Sécia had been raised on this movie. She knew it line for line and the characters were a big part of her childhood. I felt like the creepy twenty-something trying to be friends with the cool highschoolers.

The great thing about “The Breakfast Club” though, is that it addresses those kinds of feelings. It looks you in the eye, points it’s finger at you, and says, “We all feel like we don’t belong sometimes. We’re all messed up teenagers on the inside and that’s ok”. Whoa. That’s some deep stuff right there.

Also, can we talk about that title song? Wowie.

The Never Ending Cry Fest

I’m 28 years old and I just watched “The NeverEnding Story” for the very first time. I know…

image

I really feel like I’m at a disadvantage for watching it as an adult. This movie is cray. (Spoilers ahead – just in case you are a loser like me and STILL haven’t seen this movie.)

A few observations:

  1. That flying dog guy is creepy to the max. I know he’s meant to be happy and friendly, but when he laughs I see nightmares in my future.
  2. There are no famous people in this movie and it’s supposedly a classic. Psshhh. Oh, wait. It did have that one dude from “House of Cards”, so there’s that.
  3. The animatronics are AMAZING, but I felt like I was watching a lip-syncing train wreck. Why do the words not match the lips?! That horse that died was my favorite, because he didn’t talk. Is that why that part made me so sad?
  4. Atreyu + The Empress = That’s a love story I would watch. They would make beautiful babies.
  5. Why is there so much crying?!

image

Seriously, though. I’m kinda glad I didn’t see this as a kid, because it is messed up and creepy. What’s that you say? There is a sequel?! Nope to the hundredth power.
