I’ve gone missing again I know. But with my exams coming (actually they already started) and with the holidays, I really didn’t have time for anything. I’m writing now, after 3days straight studying economics where I became desperate because I couldn’t do anything right. So I chose to just stop and do something else.
#1 Stuck In Love
Where to start. This movie is everything. I’ve watched it a thousand of times, I pretty much know it by heart. I’ve discovered this one quite randomly, the trailer was in my youtube suggestion, and when I saw that Nat Wolff was playing in it I immediatly clicked on the link. The movie talks about love and its problems at different ages. From a high school student, to an adult writer, passing by a college student. They’re a family who has a passion for writing, whether it’s poem or books, they all love writing. Throughout the movie, we can see how each one is afraid of love as it might hurt them, and we see their evolution and how they grew out or they’re seing a way out of this problem.
#2 LOL (French Version)
OH. MY. GOD. Favorite movie since 2009. Well this one I know by heart every part of it, even when we start from the end. I’ve been watching this movie a least once a month since 2009 #justsaying. I love how you can relate to Lola, whether it is from her high school life, boys situation, her family life or her relationship with her mom. It’s your basic “teenager movie” but you do relate. TRUST ME. Plus the OG version is so much better than the one with Miley Cyrus and Demi Moore (not that this one was bad, I’ve watched it, but nothing compares to the OG). It’s the story of you’re normal teenager throughout the school year. You see her grow as a person, hurting, understanding. And you’ll definitely see yourself in her.
#3 Palo Alto
Palo Alto, is a book-based movie. The book was written by the one and only James Franco. It follows the story of Teddy a complicated teenager and his friends in Palo Alto, California. Teddy doesn’t have much, his father is drunk or high half of the time. The girl he likes is in love with her soccer coach, his best friend is probably a sociopath so life ain’t easy for the kid. I randomly came across this movie trailer on YouTube and immediatly want es to watch the movie. Then when I realized it was a book before becoming a movie, I knew I had to read it. It was love at first sight.
#4 Behaving Badly
Well,well. 3/5 movies I presented here, have one thing in common. They all have Nat Wolff starring in them… #sorrynotsorry. Behaving Badly follows the story of teenager Rick Stevens trying to impress the girl of his dreams : Nina (played by the beautiful Selena Gomez). While doing that he’ll be seduced by his best friend’s mom, he’ll try to follow his scholar cursus without any trouble even though his teacher died in class from a stroke, he’ll make a dangerous bet with a nerdy-weird lithuanian dude. And even more problems along the way. This movie is all the fun you need.
#5 Naomi & Ely’s No Kiss List
Netflix started it. Netflix suggested me it. And I have no regrets – insert here the picture with a tattoo saying “NO RAGRETS” – I’ve watched it three times in the same day #ObsessedMuch?. It’s a beautiful movie seriously, so cute and everything. When it comes to this one, I really have no idea how to start. Naomi and Ely are best friends. As Ely is gay, there’s no way they’ll be fighting for a boy, so they created the No-Kiss List in where they add the names of the boys that will create conflict between them. But one day, one boy will come and crash the party. Among that, there’s also a crisis in between their parents, Ely having one of his mom cheating on the other with Naomi’s dad, which will drive them further away. What will happen then? Watch the movie peeps.
Hope you’ll like them as much as I do.
Till next time,
