Movie Moments #1

This year I want my blog to focus on things that I love, not just makeup or random shitackawa. I thought that I would start a weekly 'Movie Moment' feature telling you what movies I've watched this past week. I've tried this before and not stuck to it, so I thought I would give it another go what with it being a new year and to begin:

The Duff
This movie follows Bianca, a high school senior, who has two beautiful best friends and a contentment that anyone would love to have. Bianca goes about her high school life untouched by the popular kids comments or anyone else's standards, but when her next door neighbour, Wesley, informs her that she is her best friends 'D.U.F.F: Designated Ugly Fat Friend', Bianca's world falls apart and she tries her best to get rid of the label laden upon her.

I've wanted to watch this movie since I first saw it advertised. I love movies like this as high school life really interests me as I didn't have one of my own. The characters are really well written, even if some are a tad annoying, and the story, even if similiar to other films, is really touching and fun to watch. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a light-hearted, fun film to watch.

The Escort
Mitch is a 27 year old journalist who loses his job writing for a newspaper. He quickly goes looking for work elsewhere at a magazine where he must enter an article to be considered for the position....that's when he meets Natalie. She is a beautiful, intelligent woman with an interesting life and background which makes perfect for Mitch to write a story about.

I don't really know why I watched this movie, but I'm glad I did. Even though the focus of the film may not be to everyone's taste, I think it's a really great movie. The cast, even though I'd not heard of the mains, were incredible to watch and they made the story well worth watching.

What have you been watching lately?
