A little subdued today. Just found out one of Mum's old high school friends died on Mum's birthday. Still no news from Dad's best friend who is in hospital. Ugh. And one of Mum's work friends might have lung cancer. I just. I know they say these things come in threes, so I hope that's it for now. Say a little prayer for those three.

#19. Scream (1996)

““You sick fucks. You’ve seen one too many movies!”
“Now Sid, don’t you blame the movies. Movies don’t create psychos. Movies make psychos more creative!”

SYNOPSIS: One year after the death of Sidney Prescott's (Campbell) mother, two students turn up gutted. When a serial killer appears, Sidney begins to suspect whether her mother's death and the two new deaths are related. No one is safe, as the killer begins to pick everyone off one by one. Everyone's a suspect in this case.

WHY IS IT ON THE LIST: This is not just a good movie, but a good series. I love these movies so much, because not only do I find them genuinely scary, but they're also funny. They don't take themselves that seriously, and are able to point out and laugh at all the tropes of horror movies that have come before them. Neve Campbell is brilliant as Sidney; watching this movie, you will find yourself constantly rooting for her. It's awesome to see a capable female hero in a movie that takes care of herself and kills the bad guy and doesn't need a man to help her.

Today is such a yucky day! It's cold I'm sick and [insert more whinging here]. So last night I ended up sticking the list into the randomiser several times (by several I mean 50), and have the list for the first fifty movies I'll be posting about. And because I'm bored I'll go randomise the other fifty now! Yay! I'm writing this up now instead of tonight because it is my oldest and dearest friend's (Lisa) 21st birthday party. How time flies. Feels like only yesterday we were seven years old, dancing in our bedrooms to Britney Spears. Sigh. Anyway, second movie is... Because I Said So! A chick flick classic (I feel), that my friends and I watch together at least once a month.

#2. BECAUSE I SAID SO (2007)

"You're not a helicopter, mom. Quit hovering!"

SYNOPSIS: Daphne Wilder is a mother whose love knows no bounds or boundaries. She is the proud mom of three daughters: stable psychologist Maggie, sexy and irreverent Mae and insecure, adorable Milly - who, when it comes to men, is like psychotic flypaper. In order to prevent her youngest from making the same mistakes she did, Daphne decides to set Milly up with the perfect man. Little does Milly know, however, that her mom placed an ad in the on-line personals to find him. Comic mayhem unfolds as Daphne continues to do the wrong thing for the right reasons...all in the name of love. In a battle of strong wills, the mother-daughter dynamic is tested in all its fierce, wacky complexity. The girls help Daphne finally discover the truths and impossibilities of motherly love, all while trying to answer the questions: where does it begin and where should it end?

WHY IS IT ON THIS LIST: I know this is a really cheesy chick flick movie, but I love it. I love the relationship the sisters have which each other because it reminds me of the relationship I have with my two best friends. I'm fairly certain that Daphne is also the future version of my mother, and her incessant need to control EVERYTHING drove me nuts and cracked me up all at the same time. I just love that they're all so crazy but they still love each other, no matter how much they fight. I also like that Milly ends up dating two guys at the same time, though I wish there was less shame in her doing so. Guys do it all the time, why can't girls? I suppose her not telling either of them that she was seeing someone else probably has something to do with it... Either way, this is a really cute movie that makes me smile and squee everytime I watch it.

I'm battling a head cold and it's really hot so I keep switching between walking around in a big dressing gown, and walking around with no pants on. Yuck. Once again, some photos of really stupid things. Seriously, I am so lazy it's getting ridiculous. Oh well, I hope you enjoy some of them at least! Also, my best friend and I had an epic 90s music showdown on facebook. We basically kept posting 90s music videos, pissing off EVERYONE because there were a LOT of videos. We unanimously agreed that I won after I posted MC Hammer's "Can't Touch This". Anyway, I made a playlist based on what we posted, and I'm thinking about uploading it because it's kind of awesome...

Days Sixteen - Twenty-One )

So on the 16th (a Monday, I think), Emma and I got bored and decided to drive out to Brighton to get ice cream. We usually go to Cronulla, but decided on Brighton on a whim. The weather started out absolutely appalling (as you can see in the pictures) but by the time we got to Brighton, blue skies all 'round! I don't really like coming to Brighton because it seems to be the place for hoons to drive around in their cars and shout things at you, but that day was actually very peaceful.

One of my New Years resolutions for 2012 was to take a photo a day for the rest of the year. I contemplated posting a picture everyday but then realised how annoying that would be; hence the first weekly post! Every seven days, I'll make a round-up post of the pictures I've taken so I don't spam everyone's friends page. Also included are three bonus pictures of my adorable pets.

And now for the munchkins!

Okay. So. Tonight, my best friend Bradley and my mother and I went and saw Paranormal Activity 3. Pants were shat, there was lots of shrieking and screaming and clutching of the best friends hand. But instead of my 'review', or whatever, I thought I'd just some of the stuff the three of us came out with while watching the movie, because OMG I can't stop laughing thinking about it.

Mum: I'm having a heart attack! Deanna, I think I'm having a heart attack! 

Bradley: Okay, if I were him, I'd leave them all and become a nun.
Me: What?!
Bradley: I'd go to a nunnery.
Me: You mean a monastery. To become a monk.
Bradley: No. I mean a nunnery, to become a nun. No one would ever think to look for me there.

Mum: What's this movie called again? Phenomenal Activity?

(at this point, we were facing each other, not the screen, and we were cowered down in our seats with both of our arms up in front of us)
Me: I can't look anymore. No. No more.
Bradley: I don't want to look. I'm done.
Me: Well one of us has to look!
Bradley: Not me, I looked last time!
Me: I'm not looking.
Bradley: Okay, we'll look together.

Bradley: No. No. I'm not having fun anymore. Deanna, take me home. I want to go home.

Me: He's hot!
Bradley: I don't care if he's hot, right now he deserves to die.

And to sum it all up:

Guy sitting behind us: This is fucked. This is a fucked up movie. Everyone's fucked. Fuck this.

It was so good. So good. Definitely go see it if you haven't already!

We are having a serious discussion about how a zombie/robot love affair would work. She isn't even fazed by me asking the question. The joys of having a friend who can deal with my crazy :3
