30 days of movies - the lazy edition.

The reason I'm calling this the lazy edition is because basically - I'm tired. After being sick, this week has been super busy trying to catch up experiments and I've also had things on most nights. I still just haven't had a chance to catch up on sleep. Anyway, the point is I'm going to answer a couple more of the days on the movie challenge very quickly, as for these I can't really think of overly long reasons explaining why they're my answers - they just are.

Day 5 - Favourite Drama: American Beauty. For Year 12 English we had to pick a movie based on some theme I can't remember anymore, but I chose American Beauty. I thought it was an OK movie, but because I had to watch it several times and analyse the potential meaning behind it all, it really stuck with me. Especially since when you think about it, nothing extraordinary happens until the end. However I do think it's really interesting the whole way through. This is one of the few movies I'm willing to watch, even though the ending doesn't turn out exactly how I'd usually like it to go.

Day 6 - Favourite Comedy: Hot Fuzz. Generally it seems a lot of comedies that come out these days are either romantic comedies, or 'boy' comedies (i.e., crude). Hot Fuzz is neither, and I think it's just great! It was a bit gorier that I was expecting, but besides that very amusing. I also think the friendship between the two main characters is fun and sweet. Favourite quote: "Have you ever fired your gun up in the air and gone aargh?"

What would you pick for your favourite drama and favourite comedy?
P.S. I realise I haven't actually explained what these movies are about (and now that I think of it, I don't think I did for the earlier ones either). Is that a problem? I guess I kind of assumed people have either seen them, or have a vague idea of what they're about. 
P.P.S. A giant THANK YOU to all the lovely comments from my previous post about having to go to hospital - I really appreciated reading all of them. While I did mention earlier that I'm very tired, besides that I'm heaps better and really trying not to take health for granted anymore. 


  1. I always feel soo boring when my blog friends do movie reviews and I haven't seen (or even worse, heard) of the movies! Argh! Don't judge though - I judge myself on it enough! Must watch more movies!!!

  2. My favourite drama? Oh man, too many! I think in the category of being able to watch it time and time and time again it would be Pride and Prejudice (the BBC version, even though I claim in my blog today to prefer the hollywood one).
    My favourite comedy would have to be Bridesmaids - pee my pants funny.
    Good luck at catching up on all your experiments!

  3. i actually have still never seen American Beauty. I don't know why I never watched it, I need to do that...


Hooray! Thanks for commenting :)
