The Perfect Proposal

My friend is proposing to his college sweetheart. Unfortunately for him, he’s quite clueless when it comes to getting the perfect engagement ring for his intended and came to me for an advice. He wants an alternative to diamond engagement ring. And so I told him to make the occasion a more memorable one by presenting her with blue diamonds when he’s on his knees proposing to her. It would be very romantic, don’t you think?

Unconditional Love

I cannot count how many times I have featured this movie. As I have posted, this is one of my all time favorites. Though I am a big fan of Adam Sandler, (he is my favorite comedian) he is not the reason why I love this movie very much but the story per se.

What would you do if the person you love has a short-term memory loss and forgets you the very next day? Leave him/her perhaps and forget him/her? Find another man/woman who will remember you everyday?

But not Henry. Henry Roth (Adam Sandler) is a man afraid of commitment up until he meets beautiful Lucy (Drew Barrymore). He marries her even if it means he has to start over again every day for the rest of his life. Awww, that is so sweet. Marrying a person despite of his/her condition is what we call unconditional love.

50 First Dates is a romantic comedy film that really touched my heart.

Maid in Manhattan

My Rating : 6/10

For this week’s theme “Living the American Dream”, I could not think of any movie other than “Maid in Manhattan”. It is a modern fairytale movie, with Jennifer Lopez as Marissa Ventura-the hardworking, intelligent and determined single Mom who works as maid in a first class hotel in Manhattan. Her only dream is a better life for her and her son but she got more than that. She also captured the heart of Christopher Marshall (Ralph Fiennes), one of Manhattan’s most eligible bachelors.

The plot maybe too blandly generic but girls like me always fall for fairytales with happily-ever-after endings. It is not as good as Pretty Woman and Notting Hill but it is not bad either.

Something New – The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

My Rating: 6/10

I am not into fantasy or science fiction movies but when I watched the Sorcerer’s Apprentice last night, I must admit that I liked it. I don’t know if it is because of the romance in this film or because of Nicholas Cage, my favorite actor. Though this movie is not action packed like The Rock and Con Air, Nicholas Cage justified his Character as Master sorcerer Balthazar Blake. Before Merlin died, he asked Balthazar Blake to look for the child who is destined to kill Morgana le Fay (Alice Krige), Merlin’s greatest enemy.

Balthazar Blake recruits a seemingly everyday guy in his mission to defend New York City from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath (Alfred Molina), until he found Dave Stutler (Jay Baruchel), a seemingly average guy who is a Physics genius. Balthazar and Dave work together to save the city and be with their love.

Pretty Woman

 My Rating: 8/10
Who wouldn’t love Julia Roberts? She is one of the best and the most beautiful actresses in Hollywood. She has been named one of People magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People in the World” eleven times, tied with Halle Berry. She has starred in over 43 movies and my favorite of them all is “Pretty Woman”. This movie is known to be her biggest break.

Pretty woman is one of the wonderful romantic comedy films in 1990, co-starred with Richard Gere and directed by Garry Marshall. It grossed $463 million worldwide.

Synopsis from iMbd:

A very successful, wealthy lawyer, Edward Lewis (Richard Gere) hires a beautiful and unlikely prostitute, Vivian Ward (Julia Roberts), from Sunset Blvd to bring along to various business events. An attraction developes between the two and Edward finds it harder and harder to let the infectious, kind-hearted Vivian go. How a prostitute transforms into a princess is phenomenal. A modern Cinderella story.

Richard Gere and Julia Roberts? Perfect! They are in fact one of the most attractive pairs in cinema. They look very good together. Gere and Roberts both portrayed their characters very well. I laughed, nearly cried and touched by Pretty Woman. I will never get tired of watching this box-office hit over and over again.
