and i’m sure the title got you here! haha!
and if i were in showbiz, this “status” or blog title would create waves. but i’m a nobody so it’s OK. besides, i haven’t really lost it yet! wala pang nangangahas (or nagkakamali) LOL. but if this “confession” was verbal, it would be a different story. chismis would start, right? and rumors fly fast! and we know that all too well, don’t we? kahit tama or mali yung balita, kakalat at kakalat siya. which brings me to the movie i watched last night: Easy A.
i was supposed to watch Megamind but since i could watch that safely with another person, i opted to watch something that i know *i* would enjoy.
first off, Easy A isn’t for those who are a bit too touchy about their religion or faith. some parts may have been exaggerations but what do you expect from a hollywood film from the US? it’s not meant to conform to our social standards. i guess what you see could (i’m not sure ok?) actually be happening in the schools there.
with that disclaimer, i really think the writers of Easy A were really smart. and can i just say that Emma Stone is so pretty. hot. beautiful. makes me drool. (ok, enough.)
as i was saying, the writers were pretty smart. i dunno, for a teen romantic comedy flick, it’s got brains this one. lotsa quick quips and situations that are *nudge, nudge* type of humor and more talky comedy. for example:
Marianne (the good girl): There’s a higher power that will judge you for your indecency.
Olive Penderghast (the “bad” girl): Tom Cruise?
Dill (the dad): The family member of the week gets to pick the movie.
Olive Penderghast: You get family member of the week every week.
Rosemary (the mom): And there’s a reason for that.
Olive Penderghast: Yeah, you pick family member of the week!
Rosemary: Are you accusing me of nepotism?
lol right? well, must’ve been lots of these movies way before and better lines but i just enjoyed it maybe because i was expecting more “teenage drama queen” or “she’s all that” type of a movie. and i think maybe it’s because i just see how they put subtly the importance of family, and not the life of a teenage girl in HS and just her rants about her oh so pitiful existence on earth. she just didn’t have her friends — she actually had her family there, and without being all too sappy, emotional and 7th Heaven-ish about it.
see? parents should listen and know how to communicate and “get a life” for the sake of their relationship with their kids! well, maybe just the right amount of humor where your kids can still know you are the authority in the household. i was saying to myself, “man, i wish i could be like that to my kids.” it builds your kids’ trust and confidence in you. and even if your friends leave you, you should know that you can still run to your parents without a doubt that you are loved and understood and listened to.
i don’t know about you but this was worth my cinema money and time. and i’ll probably get a copy of the home video when it comes out. 🙂
