The other day I decided to watch Pretty In Pink. It's been YEARS since I've watched it. I use to LOVE this movie, the music, the actors but NOT her prom dress. EWWW what where they thinking???
Anyway, I watched it with my adult eyes and came away feeling very irritated. I no longer love Blaine (In the words of Ducky: "His names Blaine? That's a major appliance that's not a name") he was a jerk and I don't know why she would love him. When they go on there first day and he's telling her that they're going to a party and she 's like umm I don't think so and he says something about how they could hang out with her friends under a rock. Yeah...why didn't she tell him to jump off a cliff or something. THEN he makes her feel guilty for him being a total jerk. He's like, You didn't believe in me, well of course not moron, you didn't call her back and then you lied to her and told her you forgot you asked someone else to the prom. Umm I'm sorry but I wouldn't believe in you either. Oh oh oh and what kind of freakish universe would your dad ask you if your in love after your first date and then you tell him you think you are? I mean the movie still has redeeming qualities like the music, I love me my 80's music though I'm disappointed that they didn't actually have the good songs on the sound track. I love Annie Potts character and I LOVE the scene where Ducky slides into the record store and lip syncs/dances.
I don't really know why I'm talking about it on my blog, but I'm thinking about watching more 80's movies just to see if I feel the same way about them. I'm thinking of Some Kind of Wonderful, Sixteen Candles, Can't Buy Me Love, Breakfast Club. Can you think of any more?
