Party Time! Excellent!

image

I just spent my evening watching this masterpiece… And while it did fry some brain cells, I sorta found myself relating to Wayne and Garth in some ways. (Gasp!) Lemme explain…

-They dance awkwardly. I dance awkwardly. *FOXY*

image

-I only have like, one reaction to everything… JUST LIKE THEY DO! (Well, sometimes I say “awesome” too.)

image

-This is what I do when someone points a camera at me too!

image

-The great sadness of a bad hairdo hairdon’t. I feel your pain, Garth!

image

-They are the WORST at avoiding eye contact with people they don’t want to talk to. Ditto.

image

-They love pizza, so do I. Pizza Hut, FTW!

image

-And Doritos! Are we like, soul mates?

image

-This.

image

Sure. Call me weird. But deep down you know we’re all just a little bit like Wayne and Garth on the inside. Strange, awkward, naive, and dying to have our own cable access show on Channel 10.

As You Wish…

I know, I know. The fact that I hadn’t seen “The Princess Bride” before now is simply inconceivable! I received more feedback about not having watched this one than any of the other movies on my list so far. And now I know why…

Here are my top 10 favorite moments:

1) All the “as-you-wishing” that went on in the first 5 minutes of the movie. *swoon*

image

2) That moment when Buttercup & Westley made out and we were only 10 minutes into the movie. (Well, that escalated quickly.) Must have been all the “as-you-wishing”.

image

3) Every single time Vizzini said “Inconceivable!”. Like, why is it so funny?!

image

4) The sword fight on the Cliffs of Insanity. Whoa. They got mad skills.

image

5) All the lisping that happened in the Battle of Wits to the death.

image

6) When the kidnapped Princess Buttercup yelled at The Man in Black and I was all like, “Hold the phone! That’s Claire Underwood!”.

image

7) And then the Princess realized that The Man in Black was actually her beloved Westley and they took a tumble down a hill that would have maimed or killed any normal person but, nooooo they were just fine. Totes believable.

image

8) This. I scream-laughed so loudly that I woke up all the dogs in our apartment building. I’m sure of it.

image

9) “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”
“Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”
“Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”
“Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”
“Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”

10) The end and more kissing. Sigh. How can two people be that good looking?

Yo, Adrian!

So, pre-plastic surgery Sylvester Stallone was pretty great and all, but I cannot tell you how many times I said, “This is weird”, while watching “Rocky”. Maybe it’s because I’m not really into boxing movies or perhaps it’s because the Italian Stallion seemed to have a few screws loose.  Either way, I’d like to think that I gave it a fair shot. I even put my phone in the next room so I wouldn’t be distracted. For reals!

The one great thing I can say about this movie is it is FULL of great quotes (and you will be happy to know that I have sarcastically documented all of them for you). Here goes…

“You’re gonna eat lightnin’ and you’re gonna crap thunder!” – Mickey
Sounds painful.

image

If I can change, you can change. EVERYBODY CAN CHANGE!” – Rocky
Um, ok?

image

Adrian: “Rocky, why do you fight?”
Rocky: “Because I can’t sing and dance.”
If that’s the only reason why you get your face beat in for a living, you should probably reevaluate your choice of profession.

image

“It ain’t how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you get hit and keep moving forward.” – Rocky
Yeah, but if you could NOT get hit, wouldn’t that be better?

image

“If I can go that distance, ya see, and that bell rings, ya know, and I’m still standin’, I’m gonna know for the first time in my life, ya see, that I weren’t just another bum from the neighborhood.” – Rocky
If by “that distance” you mean “to grammar school”, then I think you’re headed in the right direction.

image

At the end of the day, I get it. “Rocky” is the classic tale of an underdog turned hero. But, if surviving 15 rounds in a boxing ring makes you a hero (and wins you a few Academy Awards) then I’ll never earn my stripes. I broke a nail once and I cried for days.

Lastly, Imma just leave this here:
