Movies and Reality

I love movies. Not all kinds of movies. You could say I am a picky movie watcher. In spite of all that, I'd say I watch a lot more movies than the average person but half of them noone's heard about. Anywhoos, as a professional single, I try to go to the movies every week and since I returned I go Fridays. I couldn't go last week because I had exams so I went today and saw I can do bad by myself and 500 days of summer. I like movies that make me think and these two movies made me think.

I CAN DO BAD BY MYSELF

This was a very good movie coming from Tyler Perry's stable. I usually feel like his movies are lacking something (well depth) and are very preachy. I get the audience he is trying to reach but nyeh it's just not my cup of tea. Mary J was looking absolutely awesome in the movie and she sang a song in that movie that I want - I can do bad by myself- truer words have never been spoken. We all have issues and sometimes it just makes us be self destructive and sabotage any good things that come our way ( at least I know I have had my moments). People go through stuff in this lifetime and you wonder how they come out of it (cue Whitney Houston's " I didn't know my own strength") if i had one wish for the world it'll be that noone experiences pain and suffering but I guess that's part of the world's balance. Moving on, watching Taraji and Adam Rodriguez's xter kiss reminded me that I need some lovin' :(. May I just say that the minute a character in a movie says " I think I am in love with you" after they have known each other for like 10 minutes, the movie goes downhill from there (prolly why chick flicks and I don't get along). All in all, I'd recommend the movie, all the actors were believable ( I was surprised by Mary, thought she'd be stiff as hell).

P.S - Just found out the song was written by Neyo. Go figure, no wonder I liked it.

500 DAYS OF SUMMER

I think I may have just found my new favorite love story movie. It starts with "this is not a typical love story". It has no fairytales or butterflies, just plain reality. It makes you ask if the whole boy meets girl deal is fate/meant to be? such a thing as soulmate? when people break up why do they always focus on the good things?etc etc.You should check it out if you can.

I don't know how I forgot this song in my last post but I absolutely love Kelly Clarkson's Already Gone.(video starts after 30 seconds)

P.S.S - I really wish I could figure out my career path. I know what I want to do and I am trying to make sure I have done all I can before I give up so to speak but it's like someone trynna be discovered as a singer, at what point do you give up and accept maybe it's not meant for you? I don't know the answer to that but each rejection letter I get that says "...candidates more qualified than you" is like a slap in the face. God dey.

Do you notice how, Already gone is like Beyonce's Halo? I loved 500 days, I don't go for TP movies but I may check out the MJB song if it comes out.
