Mean Girls (2004)

On Thursday, I was so bored at school that I brought my laptop and watched this movie with Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, Midnight in Paris, Sherlock Holmes and The Notebook) and Amanda Seyfried (Gone). The film had a little comedy and romance in it, something like a Disney movie, but more kinky. I liked it because it shows the truth. Watch it if you want to understand what I’m talking about.

storyline via imdb: Raised in African bush country by her zoologist parents, Cady Heron thinks she knows about survival of the fittest. But the law of the jungle takes on a whole new meaning when the home-schooled 16-year-old enters public high school for the first time and encounters psychological warfare and unwritten social rules that teenage girls face today.

North & South (2004)

I’ve always loved BBC films. Be it movies, miniseries or serials, they are always beautiful, deep and sensitive. Pride and Prejudice (1995) with Colin Firth was the first miniseries with the same title as a novel which I loved. I’ve watched it three times. Then I watched Robin Hood (2006) where I’ve „met” Richard Armitage. He played there the villain, sir Guy of Gisborne, but believe me: he can play magnificently a romantic man as well. You can check this by watching „North & South”, a story very similar to Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. It takes four hours, has an amazing soundtrack and makes you cry for sure. Margaret Hale moves with her family in Milton and meets John Thornton. Though she thinks very poor of him, Thornton falls in love with Margaret, because she’s different from the other women around him. When he proposes to her, she refuses him, as finally to realize that, despite all, she cares for him too.

storyline via imdb: This series operates on many levels. At the heart of the series is the tempestuous relationship between Margaret Hale, a young woman from a southern middle class family who finds herself uprooted to the north, and John Thornton, a formerly poverty-stricken cotton mill owner terrified of losing the viability of his business. Around them are class struggles between the workers and mill owners and ideological struggles between the industrial North and the agrarian South. After moving North, Margaret’s father befriends his student Mr. Thornton. Margaret has already formed her opinion of Mr. Thornton independently after seeing him treat his workers harshly. As the series progresses, she and we the audience begin to learn that his strict treatment is due to an overarching concern for his mill and by extension, his employees. John Thornton, on the other hand, is attracted to Margaret’s independence and position in society as a well-educated Southerner…

Here are my favorite songs from North & South:

And my favorite scene:

Eurotrip (2004)

As I’ve said before, last weekend I watched Eurotrip with Michelle Trachtenberg (Georgina in Gossip Girl and from 17 again) because I’ve heard it’s better than American Pie. Well, I don’t agree, but this doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy watching the film.

Storyline via imdb:

Ohio high school student Scott Thomas is a good student and nice guy – albeit a little predictable – who is about to graduate and go into pre-med. He is unceremoniously dumped by his whorish girlfriend Fiona on graduation day. Among the people he turns to in his hour of despair is his German pen pal, Mike. Scott and Mike seem to have a special connection. After Mike makes advances to Scott now that he and Fiona are not seeing each other, Scott abruptly sends Mike a message saying he never wants to hear from him again. However, Scott learns shorty thereafter that Mike is actually a beautiful girl named Mieke. By this time, Mieke has blocked his messages. Thinking that Mieke is actually who he was meant to be with, Scott, impulsively for a change, decides to go to Berlin to be with her. Along for the ride is Scott’s best friend, the girl crazy Cooper Harris. They manage only to get a flight into London..

I’ve just finished watching the new 90210 episode and after I finish this post and checking some blogs I’ve been following, I have to do some homework for tomorrow. Of course, I’m not in the mood for it, but…

I’ll prepare some nice posts for tomorrow and Friday, so stay tuned! Oh, and by the way, thank you so much for the likes on my lately posts and for following my blog via e-mail. It means a lot to me.

The Notebook

Yes, I know it’s kinda lame that I see it in 2011, but you know: better later than never. I really like Rachel McAdams; I’ve seen her for the first time in Sherlock Holmes as Irene Adler (yaay, can’t wait for part 2) and she’s really beautiful and talented. And Ryan Gosling is such a sexy babe :D The movie is so romantic and sad, but a great one!

Storyline via imdb: The movie focuses on an old man reading a story to an old woman in a nursing home. The story he reads follows two young lovers named Allie Hamilton and Noah Calhoun, who meet one evening at a carnival. But they are separated by Allie’s parents who disapprove of Noah’s unwealthy family, and move Allie away. After waiting for Noah to write her for several years, Allie meets and gets engaged to a handsome young soldier named Lon. Allie, then, with her love for Noah still alive, stops by Noah’s 200-year-old home that he restored for her, „to see if he’s okay”. It is evident that they still have feelings for each other, and Allie has to choose between her fiancé and her first love.
