MissMalini's Monday Night Movie Night Recommendations!

MissMalini , 01 Apr 2013

I love movie nights (and Monday’s are a safe bet to keep yourself out of trouble and able to survive the rest of the week!) So here are a few movies I suggest you watch if you haven’t already. Some of them are mindless fun and some of them are deep – perhaps too deep for the boys so be warned ladies! :)

Liberal Arts (2012)

First up it’s Ted (Josh Radnor) from How I Met Your Mother and I love him in a way I could never quite love Ross from Friends. *lol* Plus I thought it was kinda interesting that this movie explores that teenage nostalgia all us 30-somethings must be feeling right about now! It’s possible that if you watch this movie with a boy he will make wise-cracks through the whole movie and complain about the old people but once you get passed that it’s quite sweet I thought. I also really liked these lines from the movie:

“Everything in life is basically improvised”.

“Any place you don’t leave is a prison.”

“I believe in consequences.”
“No, you believe in guilt.”
“Maybe. But guilt before we act is called morality.”

High School (2010)

What if you had to get the whole school high on weed so you could pass a drug test on a technicality  Ya that. If you love madcap high school comedies this one’s for you (especially if you loved the inaneness of Dude, Where’s My Car and all the Harold & Kumar Adventures. Party favours not included :)

Adventureland (2009)

Jesse Eisenberg from The Social Network and Kristen Stewart from Twilight have great chemistry in this flick and I thought it was mildly ironic that she did this movie [SPOILER ALERT] about cheating on her boyfriend with a married man and then went right ahead and cheated on her boyfriend with a married man. Rather Grimm brotherly twisted life-imitates-art situation dontchya think?! Also the 80s throwback to theme-parks and fashion were super fun and so was the retro playlist featuring 41 songs (gotta love that someone blogged the whole lot!) including epic tunes like Rock Me Amadeus by Falco, Here She Comes Now by The Velvet Underground, Don’t Dream It’s Over by Crowded House, Here I Go Again by Whitesnake, & Don’t Change by INXS. 

And my twitter timeline just recommended this flick which I’m queuing up next, thanks @petitebawl :) xoxo

It’s All Gone Pete Tong (2004)

Interesting that this is based on a true story, I love movies like that. It’s All Gone Pete Tong is a Canadian independent film about Frankie Wilde (Paul Kaye), a DJ who goes completely deaf. The title is a reference to a cockney rhyming slang phrase used in Britain from the 80s to present day, referring to the BBC Radio 1 DJ Pete Tong, standing for “it’s all gone a bit wrong”.

PS. I’m also DYING to see this: Oz The Great And Powerful the prequel to The Wizard of Oz.

A small-time magician is swept away to an enchanted land and is forced into a power struggle between three witches? Sounds awesome Toto.
