So every once in a while I decide to spend my Saturday watching movies. I mainly do this after a really long, stressful, week. This was one of those weeks, so this is one of those Saturday’s. Usually Kendall or a girlfriend of mine joins but I decided I wanted some alone time today. I searched through netflix and picked out movies I haven’t seen and some that I have.
First on my list which I actually watched LAST Saturday night when my parents stayed with me was The Big Wedding.
We got some good laughs from this one. It was FILLED with celebs. I love Katherine Heigl just because of my obsession for Grey’s Anatomy. AND ERIC FOREMAN was on it (yes I know that’s not his real name but he’ll always be that to me.) Also is there anyone that doesn’t love Susan Sarandon, Diane Keaton, and Robert DeNiro?! Such classic actors. It’s a cute, cliche movie. You won’t die if you don’t watch it though.
Next up I watched What to Expect When You’re Expecting. I’m really glad I chose this today because it was actually really cute!
Again this was pretty stacked with celebrities as well! But my favorite part of this entire movie….
HELLO CHACE CRAWFORD. Why did I not watch this movie sooner! This just made me miss GG ten times more. Seriously this guy gets me all sorts of hott and bothered.
Chace Crawford aside this was actually a cute movie. Some sad moments and some relatable. If you are looking for a girls night movie I highly recommend!
Next up I decided to watch The Other Woman.
I’m a big Natalie Portman fan! I had never heard of this movie but I’m glad I did. It’s a drama but not in the gripping the edge of your seat kind of drama. It’s raw, real life, drama. I swear no matter what kind of movie Natalie Portman is in she always nails it. I cried, alot. It’s pretty self explanatory. Woman has affair with her boss, gets pregnant, and marries the boss while dealing with the bitter ex wife and incorporating her new step son into her life. There’s more to it but I won’t spoil it for anyone who decides to watch.
After that I decided on one that I can pretty much quote every line of, Never Back Down. It’s not a hugely popular movie but I know quite a few who have seen it. Saw this when it came out in theaters and then bought the DVD right after. Everytime I watch this movie I instantly feel super bad ass and want to punch something. I use the soundtrack to this movie a TON when I work out. If you haven’t heard the song Someday by Flipsyde LISTEN TO IT. For all you runners, I guarantee it’ll make you push a little harder for those last steps! Everything about this movie just makes you want to strive to do your best and fight your fight in life.
Main character, Sean Faris is a cutie.
Oh and another reason to watch NBD- CAM GIGANDET. He plays the bad one in this movie but he’s just oh so good. SERIOUSLY LOOK AT HIM. And everyone watch this movie!
And then lastly because the main actor from Never Back Down was in this next movie I chose to give it a watch. It’s called Forever Strong. I enjoy a good sports movie and this one is based on Rugby.
This is actually a really good movie. I’m surprised I hadn’t heard of it before. Teenage guy on the wrong path forced to straighten his life out. You won’t be disappointed you watched it. Always room to turn your life around!
Oh and if What to Expect When You’re Expecting didn’t taunt me enough with having Chace Crawford in it, this one has Penn Badgley from GG as well. This is a sign.
So there’s my Saturday movie recap! Hope everyone had as productive a day as I did! Seriously though, I needed this. Life is kicking my ass lately! Anyone else feeling that way?!
