"Day 10 - Favourite classic movie"
 is "The Apartment"



I'm a classic American comedy freak, so my choice was hard: How to Marry a Millionaire, Walk don't Run, ... Name one, I've probably seen it.
This one is a classic, and I love it though Baxter is almost as unlucky as Donald Duck.

Ask anyone who lives in Italy. Known with the title "Una poltrona per due" (literally, a chair for two), this movie get irrevocably broadcasted during Christmas Holidays - preferably on Christmas or New Year's eve. So, I've seen this film countless times.

I love this movie, even though it could be used in the category "a movie that you love but everyone else hates".
It's perfect.

Yesterday I finally bought and watched (500) Days of Summer.
The disclaimer is pure joy lol.
Besides the fact I guess Summer is the name of the girl in the original version (and Autumn the other girl?), while they called her Sole (= Sun) in Italian, it was a really nice movie!
spoilerCollapse )
I feel like I need to watch it again, I need to study it maybe?
I loved the fact Tom is an architect, and the view he has of the city. It looks perfectly true. And I love Joseph Gordon-Levitt's grumpy faces, they're funny.

I really don't know what to pick this time!
"Day 05 - Favourite love story in a movie"
Right I said my favourite love story is Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann in Pirates of the Caribbean! Cause it's true, romantic costume action is my ultimate idea of romance.



I thought about picking a backup couple, since I already used the movie in another caegory, but I can't really think of one I adore in a movie - they're all in tv series! Or they're marginal in the movie plot.
I think my memory needs some help.

"Day 04 - A movie that makes you sad" is
"Breakfast at Tiffany's"


Actually I've never seen it all - it's a part of the movie that makes me sad, when Holly loses her Cat. I was traumatized by seeing her calling the cat when I was a kid, and it still makes come to my mind what you feel when you think your cat/dog is gone and you don't know where.
I've never liked this movie, so I read the book to know the story and didn't like it. I've been told the movie's different, but still I can't get why it is this sort of myth. Visuals maybe?
Is it a happy movie? Did they turn the story in a romantic comedy? Cause the book is tough, not light, at all.
The saddest movie I've seen in theatres is "Neverland" though. Way too sad. I don't like crying for movies!

Fine, I want to tell you this thing that happened to me a few days ago.
I was in my friend's car, with her and her cousin, mother and grandma - so, I wasn't alone. It was night, 10 pm approx. We were coming back from the mall which is a few kilometers from home; to get there we drive through some fields and semi-isolated houses, but still very close to town.
I noticed a group of red lights on the right, high enough to make me ask what town was that (there are hills not far, and when the night is clear we see the lights of towns on the hills). My friend's mom told me there wasn't any hill that way!
Indeed I noticed these lights were floating, not far from the street and the street lamps: they looked exactly like an exploded firework, except they were moving really, really slow and didn't stop burning in a proper time for a firework - I've seen lots of fireworks, don't think I'm stupid and I don't know how it normally behaves lol.
They kept moving away one from the other REALLY slow, so it seemed they were actually floating mid-air.
Slowly they were all gone. I think I saw one stop burning only really close to the ground.

Here's a diagram.
I've heard before of this kind of things and sightings in this Country, I've seen videos and photos on tv.
Anyway. As my friend said, there was probably a high-flyng draught that kept them mid air and moving slowly. Still that was strange, IF it were fireworks. We didn't see others before nor heard any explosion.
It was WEIRD for sure. Still, whatever it was, it has been a really interesting thing to see! Fascinating!

"Day 03 - A movie that makes you really happy" is
"Pirates of the Caribbean - Curse of the Black Pearl"



Ok, so if I'm picking this one now, I'll have problems with favourite love story in a movie, but.
My love for Pirates of the Caribbean is a long.time love. It all began with my first visit to Disneyland Paris: I've always loved pirates, but I had problems with skeletons, especially if they moved. So I walked half the road to the beginning of the ride, through the fort and then asked to leave. Damn skeletons. Anyway. As soon as I was brave enough to face talking skeletons, I found my place.
Let's talk about the movie though. It's energetic, it's romantic and it's fun! Lots of fun!
I can't help but feeling empowered and happy watching it.
It is on the top 3 of my favourite movies of all time.
I LOVE THIS MOVIE, from the bottom of my heart!
