  1. Favorite movie scenes-part 3

    Saturday, February 2, 2013

    For the third time, the numbers don't mean anything. :)

    1-Scott Pilgrim vs the world
    You cannot (emphasize on cannot) find any reason to dislike/hate this movie.  I mean , come on! It's Scott Pilgrim. There can never be a person who hates Scott Pilgrim. If there is, this scene should change your mind.
    It's kind of difficult to select the best scene from a lot of awesome scenes. It's actually unhealthy since you are under a lot of pressure. (The pressure of choosing a scene from an awesome movie is a lot of pressure and most people just crack under this kind of pressure.) If you read my previous Favorite movie scenes posts you would know that I like to watch my favorite scene(s) over and over again. This is one of the little things in my life which makes me extremely gay. (The traditional gay. Not the usual homosexual gay. Gay as in lively mood or happy or gleeful.. )
    For those who don't know about this movie, it's kind of like a video game. Leveling up, score, bonuses, coins, 1ups and everything. I know what you're thinking. This is so cool. I know raaaaight!

    Scott Pilgrim met Ramona Flowers who appeared in his dreams. He became obsessed with her (Okay. It was not that creepy. I thought the determination Scott had in order to see her again, talk to her and go out with her was actually cute. It kind of makes me think. "Where the hell are those guys?" Lol. I was trying to sound 'thoughtful'.) He was dating Knives Chau at that time but he lost interest in her because of Ramona. Ramona gave him her number which had seven x's written on it.
    No, she did not write her number on a t-shirt. I couldn't find a picture of the number and  I don't have the movie on my laptop right now so I couldn't take a screen shot. This was the best I could find. Although THIS T-SHIRT IS SO COOL. I want it.
    Later, after defeating Matthew Patel one of Ramona's 'evil exes' he learned that in order to date her he must defeat her 7 exes. Hence the 7 x's written underneath her number.
    Ramona was first seen in the movie with purple/pink hair. Scott was kind of fascinated with her hair. But then later she changed it to blue. Scott was like 'what did you do to your hair?' She then said that she changes her hair color every week or so. She later changed it to green. This is also one of the many things I like about this  movie/Ramona.

    Now, my favorite scene was the one where Scott went to Gideon's newly opened theater where his band (yeah, he was in band called Sex Bob-omb) was playing and challenged him to a fight. He confessed "Because I'm in love with her." when Gideon asked why he wanted to fight for Ramona. That earned him the power of love. (It's a sword. You can see this in the first picture.)

    Knives also came to the scene and started a cat fight between her and Ramona. Scott was killed by Gideon while he was trying to break up the fight. But Scott gained a 1 up previously. (1 up means an extra life)  He went to fight Gideon, again and this time he earned the power of self-respect sword which was much stronger than the power of love sword. He used the sword to kill Gideon. Now, I did tell you about the coin thing right? When you kill someone instead of blood, the person turns into coin. When he killed Gideon, coins were every where. It was like rainfall. That was so epic. You should seriously watch it.

    2.The perks of being a wallflower
    I really like this poster. This was right after Sam and Patrick graduated
    This movie is an honest high school movie. Sure, there are a lot of movies about high school. Usually it's about someone who is 'invisible' to others but then at the end of the movie he/she becomes the most popular guy in high school. I said this is an honest movie because this doesn't happen in this one. Sure, he did become 'visible' but he wasn't like the most popular one.
    This was after Charlie became 'visible'.
    Where do I begin? Okay. Emma Watson. I think that does it for everyone. Everyone wants to watch her movies. She is a very talented actress and she is so beaaaautiful. I have a girl crush on her. So pretty. and her accent is like wow. Int his movie, I think she did both British and an American accent. Either way she was excellent.

    Charlie has no friends. Honestly. He is very introverted. On his first day, when his English teacher asked the class a question (I don't remember the question) to which the answer was Charles Dickens (yes, I remember the answer.) He wrote the answer on his book, but when his teacher, Mr.Anderson asked if anyone knew the answer he did not answer. But Mr.Anderson did see the answer written on his book. This is actually the saddest scene ever, but then again I like sad scenes more than happy ones. Because the sad ones feel more real to me. This scene actually represents how lonely Charlie is.

    He saw a senior, called Patrick in his carpentry class I wanna say? He was very funny actually. It was later revealed in the movie that Patrick was gay. (the homosexual gay this time.) He met (actually met) Patrick and his step sister Sam, (Emma Watson) at a football game and they went to a restaurant after the game and drove him home. That was the end of it (not).
    He saw them at them dancing at the high school dance. They were doing their 'routine'. Charlie was literally at the corner of the dance hall when he spotted the hyper duo. He slowly made his way into the dance floor doing some dance-ish moves (blending in) and reached them. They welcomed him with open arms (literally) and danced together. There should be more people like Patrick and Sam. You know, extremely gregarious and does not make you feel left alone. Always cheerful and everything nice. (I should seriously evaluate myself and become more like Sam.)
    Patrick and Emma doing the routine. It was kind of like a chicken dance but wing out and flapping them. 
    They took Charlie to a house party, where he eats a brownie. (You know, 'brownie'. A cannabis brownie.) He got stoned and started socializing. He made clever remarks with his observations. While Sam was making Charlie a chocolate milkshake he mentioned that his best friend committed suicide the previous year. Sam told Patrick that he has no friends so they decided to become his. On their way home this song was playing on the radio. No one knew the name of the song yet Sam thought it would be the perfect song to go through the tunnel. They drove into the tunnel and Emma went out to the tray of the truck, opened her arms without any support. It was like she was flying. I guess it's the reason she does it.
    Sam and Patrick were seniors which mean they would go to a college after high school, leaving Sam behind. If this was a typical high school movie either Sam would stay with Charlie or Charlie magically graduated with them and they go to college together. I called this a honest movie because this doesn't happen in perks of being a wallflower. Sam and Patrick did move away but they kept in touch. Sent each other letters and even visited him during the break. She even asked him to visit her sometimes.
    They did not know the name of the song to which Sam 'flew.' They referred to it as the tunnel song. When she visited Sam she said her room mate had excellent taste in music and told him that she had the tunnel song. So they went to the tunnel again and played that song and this time Charlie did the flying thing.

     He was actually happy and that made me happy. Because he was a very gloomy looking guy and he has this disease I donno? We did see some scenes of Charlie and his aunt. He blames himself for her death but we come to know that she sexually abused him as a child.

    There were a lot of other favorite scenes. But I'm not gonna describe them in detail. Like the one where Sam gives Charlie a type writer as a gift. and the scene where Sam was in the corner of the prom while Charlie was on a date. He then left the dance floor and went to Sam. It reminded me of the times when Charlie was the one in the corner and Sam was on the dance floor. It's like they are even now. I dont know.

    I feel so happy now that I see this picture. There's so much going on between them. Plus it's EMMA WATSON!
    You seriously need to watch this movie. It is so awesome. It even won a lot of awards and got nominated for  a lot as well.
    Wallflower means a type of loner. It's someone usually in high school  who sees everything, knows everything but does not say a word. They are introverted. Are you a wallflower?
