Easy A

Somewhere in the midst of social activity and work, I managed to find time for some movies and my dramas which are next to impossible these days with everybody trying to get me out of the house. Out of the movies, I've watched recently (Bruce Lee, Rapunzel, Red, Tron, Harry Potter 7 Part 1, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Scott Pilgrim), only one managed to knock my socks off this month. Easy A! Seriously, nobody makes movies like this anymore (I think anything with Michael Cera is crap).


I was never interested in watching this because I watched a clip of it where Emma Stone was doing something really silly with a birthday card, and it sorta turned me off. Plus, House Bunny didn't exactly give me a reason to like Emma Stone. As I watched it however, I noticed that it had a pretty good cast in Penn Badgley (blue devil, rawr!), Aly Michalka and Amanda Bynes (she's so good, you wanna hate her). Cam Gigandet was virtually unrecognizable here as the Jesus-loving, chlamydia-infested guy who can't pass his high school exams.


I may now eat my words because the movie was A+++ for me. Rock on, Emma Stone.

"Whatever happened to chivalry? Does it only exist in 80's movies? I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air because he knows he got me. Just once I want my life to be like an 80's movie, preferably one with a really awesome musical number for no apparent reason. But no, no, John Hughes did not direct my life." - Olive Penderghast
