I used to be that type of person that never cried in movies and thought most love
stories in books and movies were stupid because they happen in less than a week and
that's totally immature and impossible. I was basically the most hard-hearted person
to ever walk the planet.
I saw Titanic.
It completely destroyed that person, and is now my absolute favourite movie of all
time ever. Aside from that, it made me the sappiest (which by the way is a
combination of sad and happy - sappy; sadhappy - sappy; sadhappy :P), most cry-baby
person in the entire world. Now I cry at EVERYTHING- The Reader, Blood Diamond,
Finding Nemo, Romeo and Juliet (the play, not the amazing but also so pathetic it's
funny at the same time 1996 movie), Speak (the book AND the movie) Finding Neverland,
Rachel Getting Married... Last night was a new low for me. I cried in GLEE. How big
of an epic fail is that??? I also cry more often now in real life situations, and
not only when I'm sad or angry. I find that, while most people only cry when they're
either sad, angry or elated, I cry whenever any sort of emotion is aroused,
particularly nostalgia. Talking about my family, both in the past, present and
future, causes me to collapse into a watery mess.
Also I have a three-way tie for favourite songs, two of which are (BIG surprise
here) 'My Heart Will Go On' by Celine Dion and Faith Hill's 'There You'll Be,' from
the Titanic and Pearl Harbor soundtracks, respectively. In truth, the person I used
to be would absolutely hate the person I am now, and would make fun of me
relentlessly, but I really like the sappy me a lot better. She's more fun.
Anyway, that's really not the point. The point is that, since seeing Titanic,
I've compiled a list of other romantic movies I MUST SEE before I die.
Letters to Juliet
Gone With the Wind
A Walk to Remember
Anybody seen any of those? Personally I think I'm going to like Pearl Harbor
best, but I obviously haven't seen any of them so I don't know. Opinions?
So yeah... I basically fail. But it's okay. I fail happily.
