Since I find myself loving watching movies lately, (well I always do actually!), and that my blog is pretty dead these days, I decided to…tenen — challenge myself once again! Okay, so this is going to be hard, since I forever suck at challenges and I haven’t accomplished any! Yup, even the 20-something Instagram challenge that seems to be so easy has been down the drain! I do not know why I always fail. Oh wait, I know! Because I am such a lazy ass, that’s why!
Anyway, to begin this challenge and thankfully, May has just started, I will include here the movies I did watch since day 1. (I’m nervous now that I think of how this thing will go!)
FILM 001 : Take This Waltz (2011)
I don’t know when I actually downloaded this movie but I’m glad I did. It is boring to watch (for some reviews I happened to read) but I had no problem with it. Truth is, I actually loved it. It’s about a girl who had a short trip somewhere (I forgot where, haha) and met this one cute guy who then sat next to her on the airplane and found themselves laughing and sharing facts about each other. Thing is, Margo is married to a guy who is really sweet (I could really tell by the movie that he loves her) but the only problem is…they got stuck, and their relationship is nothing but pure boredom. They live together, go out on anniversaries and soon…stopped talking about things. Because…they knew everything about each other already. Or maybe because, in my conclusion, they just stopped trying to make it work. And that is why Margot seems to find herself falling for this new guy who actually happened to be his neighbor. The story ended with Margot leaving her husband to be with this new guy…whom she had great sex with, but soon enough…became as boring as her old relationship.
I think the reason why I loved the movie was well because, I see a lot of myself in Margot (I seem to see myself a lot in everyone else, that’s so annoying) because of the way she handles her relationships. I had that moment. I got bored of someone, and then met a new one and soon left the old one to be with the new guy whom I thought could make a difference. Soon enough, it is just the same old story. At first it was happy, and then you get used to things, got bored and lose yourself once again.
I was crying at the last part of it because I imagine myself saying goodbye to Mr. O and our crazy ways of goofing at each other. I do not want that to happen even if, I have to admit it, that we get bored at times or sick at each others’ presence. Even though we are not as sweet as before, or as happily in love as before, I still want to make it work. Because, accept it. Love is happiest at the first few stages. You think he is your world. You cannot live without him. You wanna wrap yourself up with him, all day long. Then soon, you’ll get used to it, you’ll find yourself bored at some point –doing the same things you always do. Getting stuck, and eventually, losing your interest. But you know why some relationships do last? Because they make it work. And that’s the thing about love. You make it work. Every single day.
Oh the things I learn by watching movies.
