Films, Fun, My fave things, Pop culture

If life was a movie (and pop quiz)

Sigh it’s Monday again. So a fun post is in order I think!

I love films. I usually watch a new one every week supplemented with a couple of my favourite films. I am someone who can watch a film I enjoy again and again. I could probably quote a few word for word 🙂

Yes I am a film lover.

I often think about what life would be like if it was a movie. Here are some suggestions:

1. Rom-com:

I would meet the man of my dreams in a funny situation – probably bumping into him in the supermarket or dropping  a pile of books, which he helpfully picks up. We would then have some misunderstandings, which cause us to try and date other people but it would be no good, we would be drawn back together. He would make a grand romantic gesture, probably playing loud music outside my window or using the loud-speaker at an airport, and I would fall into his arms, kiss him and then marry him instantly. Happily ever after? Of course!

2. Musical:

I would burst into song at points in my day that are meaningful or invoke strong emotion. People around me will join in, knowing automatically the words and dance moves to accompany the song.

3. Comic book / Sci-fi

I would have special powers. This could either be superhero stuff like strength, speed or the ability to talk to animals, or I’d be able to time travel and meet Jane Austen or be invisible and steal loads of designer clothes.

4. Teen Queen

I would go to an American high school. I would be a misfit, nerd, indivisible, indie girl etc and all the popular kids i.e. cheerleasders and jocks, would ignore me / laugh at me. But I would triumph in the end, get to find someone as equally geeky and as misfit-like me and get one over on the cool kids. I would also learn something about myself in the process. This would probably be supplemented by learning a book in school that crossed over to my life, probably Shakespeare.

5. Action

I would be a secret spy and the fate of the world would rest of my glamorous shoulders. I would infiltrate a group of dodgy men and bring them all down whilst wearing heels and having  a passionate affair with another spy (who may or may not be my husband).

Time for a quiz!

 Here are some quotes from films that I am a fan of. Try and guess the films (without using Goggle) – answers at the end. Good luck!

1. Yes… I believe so, if I was the Gossip Girl in Sweet Valley of the Traveling Pants

2. He does dress better than I do, what would I bring to the relationship?

3. Throughout human history, we have been dependent on machines to survive. Fate, it seems, is not without a sense of irony.

4. Yeah, if I could just have the thing and give it to you now, I totally would. But I’m guessing it looks probably like a sea monkey right now and we should let it get a little cuter.

5. As a wise musician once said – I have become comfortably numb.

6. But you know the thing about romance is people only get together right at the very end.

7. There’s that word again; “heavy”. Why are things so heavy in the future? Is there a problem with the earth’s gravitational pull?

8.  I feel the same way as you feel about Botox. Painful and unnecessary.

9. I had an adrenaline rush. It’s very common. You can Google it.

10. Such a beautiful place … to be with friends.

  1. This is so funny! Your real-life movies sound like something I would watch 😀 Your rom-com especially (although somehow you managed to describe just about every rom-com I have ever seen…)
    I only guessed right about Clueless and Back to the Future… but a lot of the quotes sounded really familiar!

    1. Thanks Elin! I wish they were my life. It’s kind of scary how similar rom-com plots are yet I love them 🙂 Well done on guessing them, it’s annoying when you recognise them but can’t put your finger on from where exactly 🙂

  2. I know its not a movie, but I kept thinking about the fabulous Buffy, The Musical episode as you described your life in movies. It combines all the genres into one. I would so watch that movie.

    1. It was a fun episode, I remember downloading some of the songs but without the images, they were a bit flat because they couldn’t actually sing that well 🙂 Have you seen the original Buffy film without SMG – it’s really lame!

      1. I don’t think that was SMG, but it was horribly lame. I’m not saying make Buffy the movie (although I would have watched that) I mean, you should star in a Rom/com/musical/sci-fi/teen queen/action flick. 🙂

  3. I LOVE this! (clap-clap-clap) Yea! I’m such a huge (big, giant, out-of-this-world) movie fan. Juno has so many fantastic lines, Ellen does such a fine job of delivering them. You chose one of the favorite ones.

    We watch movies every day. However, now we’re stuck on Netflix and watching all the series of 24, with Jack Bauer, Kiefer Sutherland. (that rocks!)

    I can rewatch movies no problem. My favorite are classic 80’s films (especially John Hughes- brat pack)…and have quite a selection of DVDS…which of course, are becoming obsolete. However, I like having them. I love when people burst into song during a drama like “My Best Friends Wedding” with Julia Roberts. I secretly wanted that at my wedding and my husband was like “singing…I don’t know about that!” Ha-ha! 🙂 Did I mention what a terrible singer I am?

    1. Ah thanks, you are A for awesome (see Easy A). Glad to hear you’re another film fan, I have a stupidly large number of DVDS and am in the process of swapping my fave ones for Blu-Ray, which makes them look amazing!
      I know, films with random songs make me chuckle. If only that would really happen! I’m the same as you though – no singing talent but we can dream ….

  4. This is a really nice post. You have awesome imagination Vix! I couldn’t recognise any of the lines *blush*…but am big fans of Juno and Sex and the City too! P.S. You gotta love Samantha Jones….lol!
