10 Things I Hate About You (1999 w/ Julia Stiles, Heath Ledger, Joseph Gordon-Levitt) – 3 out of 5 stars : Was fashion really worse than as I remembered it to be as it showed in the film? goodness I was 15/16 in 1999 and thought this film was better back then. I also always had a thing for Joseph Gordon-Levitt – who got cuter and cuter over the years. . and Andrew Keegan for some reason-now who I think is very unattractive (both were on my bedroom walls when I was 11-14!) Oh and funny thing I noticed while watching this again is that in a scene Julia Stiles was reading The Bell Jar and now she is going to be in a film version of the book (in the process of being casted and such so far).
(500) Days of Summer (2009 w/ Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Zooey Deschanel) – 3.5 out of 5 stars
The way they produced the plot of this story was beautiful. I loved the artsy-fartsy bits of it. The romantic tale was a bit depressing at times. I am very glad there wasn’t any nudity in this film. Oh Joseph Gordon-Levitt has grown up a lot since he was on 3rd Rock From the Sun and 10 Things I Hate About You. He is 2 years older than me but just seemed to really grow out of that baby-face he had. That’s something I don’t think many child stars do too well.
Zooey Deschanel of course sings in this film (She & Him’s new album is coming out soon!!!). Although this was a nice film, it didn’t leave me wanting more or thinking about it like other films tend to do. Of course I was left wanting all of her clothes throughout the film. I think that’s what I thought of most in watching it haha. Granted Rob wanted all of his clothes too!! haha. Weird thing in watching this movie together is that Rob knew I had “the hots” for Joseph Gordon-Levitt and I knew he had “the hots” for Zooey Deschanel. That’s awkward.
Rob said the most he got out of this film was when they do an interview of “why” characters were drawn to the person of their dreams or something. One guy said how he dated his girl since middle school and that although she is not perfect, she became his dream girl. It made Rob melt and he told me that he explained us right there. haha. Of course Rob’s actual type was all throughout the screen so I still felt a little self conscious!
Music I’ve been Listening to Lately:
Christmas music still. Now I’m transitioning away from that so here are a couple songs at least
Fleet Foxes – Tiger Mountain Peasant Song
First Aid Kit – Hard Believer
And to mix it up with First Aid Kit and Fleet Foxes, I am posting this because I am charmed by harmonies big time and I HATE COVER SONGS WITH A PASSION but somehow this got me!!! Oh goodness! Listen to the original version first though. So here is First Aid Kit’s version of Fleet Foxes’ Tiger Mountain Peasant Song.
