Movies....And The One You Need!


Any time I see a very captivating preview of a movie with a charming cast list, I'm always hunted by the thought that if I don't watch it then I'm committing some cinematic injustice to the arts, no matter how long it takes me. And yes, I'm lagging somewhere behind.

So that's one of the reasons I hounded my sister Barbie to find me the movie "Baggage Claim" since I missed seeing it at the cinemas and I'm frantically obsessed with the subject of love, romance, drama or any wacky chick flick with comedic chops. Let's not add the fact I'm a die hard "JILL SCOTT" fan so much so that I now follow her on twitter (oh no! I have no intentions of stalking her though...lol)... But I'm absolutely crushing over the lead female Paula Patton's ex husband 'Robin Thicke' and I suspect I'm not the only one...Or is it the parade of gorgeous muscular eye candy(s) like Taye Diggs, Trey Songz and Boris Kodjoe (And no! I do not masturbate to a picture of them on my wall) hahahah. Or is it Derek Luke, who seems like the kind of guy I can actually take home to my mama, bloody talented and yet sexy in a sweet demure way...(who doesn't like a sweet guy). Believe me, I can never get enough of him, its like I'm Emelda Marcus in a shoe shop yea...you get me now? Hahahah.

Anyway, I strike a deal with my younger sister promising to give her my navy tank DRESS she's been fawning over, if and only if she gets me the movie (never underate a young obsessed fashion freak) ofcourse, she puts her boyfriend to work (perhaps a few WET kisses did the trick) and somehow got him to buy it online... Yipee! (Dancing alanta) Yes, I finally got my movie FIX...

Forget that it was a box office flop or that the REVIEW was a little above average if not downright mean... Or the story line was perhaps a little convoluted and cliche, with a young lovelorn flight attendant tracking down all her ex boyfriends with the hope that one of them will end up being THE ONE. Well, I've always been the type to focus more on message, content and quality...even though the premise for the film may have been a little contrived. Still I have never been one to be sucked in by hype, labels or popular opinions. I still have my own brain cells to decide whether or not I like something or what message I do pick or do 'not' pick...which I've trained myself to find GOOD about a lot of things. And I found a message that was clear (No! Not that boring catch line...something about staying in marriage or so) lol.

I can not count the number of times a LEAD characters falls for the odd one or how many times they chose the obviously-not-so-obvious one who's secretly in love with them. It is true that a movie is the finished product of a SCREEN PLAY...and a screenplay is product of a writer's IMAGINATION but a writers imagination is pretty influenced by culture, environment, experience and the boundaries of their set mind. And what might seem like a rather CLICHE ending might actually be a substantial theory that in reality, THE ONE we NEED is usually the one we never ever thought we even WANTED.

The ONE who goes IGNORED yet always puts your interest before theirs, makes a lot of SACRIFICES on your behalf, tries to make you HAPPY and stays LOYAL even when you take their love for granted. THE ONE is pretty much like 'Derek luke's' character (William Wright, who by the way, anyone who is sentient could see was absolutely made for her), patient, loving, tolerant and probably UNDERSTANDS you better than you realise... because they are not in your focus, so they don't have to play up themselves to get your approval. The ONE is honest with you about your shortcomings yet cares about your GROWTH even if it means sacrificing their LOVE...The one could be the childhood friend you never even let steal a KISS, the neighbour down the hall you are not afraid to DISS or the best friend you regale with all your silly GIST. The ONE is pretty much like a movie trailer hoping one day, you'll be WISE enough to SEE It.

Have A Fantastic Friday Lovelies! Kisses!
