Day 19, favourite movie, 30 day blog challenge!
There is a few
Calamity Jane, is probably my absolute favourite!
Princess Bride is a close second!
I love watching films! There is something very satisfying about being transported into a different time and place! I love transformation films.
When Calamity Jane gets a makeover as well as her cabin to the sound of ” a women’s touch” I love it. Even the feminist in me doesn’t care so much about the meaning of the song but Calamity Jane was the ultimate feminist not that this is what this film was about.
I live a makeover in a film.
If you asked me if I liked musicals I would say no, not really my cup of tea, but I do love them.
- Calamity Jane
- Moulin Rouge
- Guys and dolls
- Funny face
- Fiddler on the roof
- Hello Dolly
- Half a sixpence
- My fair lady
I loved them when I was younger, I guess it’s just the next step in Disney movies!
I loved Calamity so much because she was fiesty and a story teller. She was happy being lonely with her crush on Lieutenant Dan. And then she makes a mistake which turns into a friendship and the man who loves her finally steps forward and tell her he loves her.
He always did.
I am a big romantic.
I love love
I think it is completely precious and rare. So when you find it you need to either be good to it or let it go.
Movies about love are always just the beginning never the end. The beginning is the magical bit. The rest is the work and making it work part. Which has it magical moments thrown in.
I am lucky. All my closest friends have really amazing partners who I like, love and respect. We are a lucky group!
I even though I really love love and romance I do think it’s a private thing. Grand gestures mean nothing to me.
Grand gestures are all show and no work. They are a bandaid on an amputation. If you need to do a grand gesture then there is a massive fault in your relationship.
This was supposed to be about my favourite film and it turned into a rant about love!
