Some of the best movies ever made
i. 500 Days of Summer. This is not a love story but this is a story about love. This is about meeting someone and then suddenly your world will turn upside down. This is all about falling in love with the wrong one yet you swore you felt like that someone is the right one. This movie is all about believing in destiny or coincidence. Tom believed in true love since he was young, Summer stopped believing in it since her parents died. When their world collided, everything changed. Tom fell in love with her, he swore she is the one. Summer doesn’t view him as anything special other than a friend. In all those 500 days that she stayed in his life, she changed it in a way that he stopped believing in fairy tales and destiny. In all those 500 days that he stayed in her life, she started to believe in true love again. In all those 500 days that they had been into each other’s lives, their beliefs has changed and their lives have turned into something they never thought would turn to. This just shows that no matter how you thought that someone would be your forever, if you two are not meant to be, you will just never be.
"It’s these cards, and the movies and the pop songs, they’re to blame for all the lies and the heartache, everything. We’re responsible. I’M responsible. I think we do a bad thing here. People should be able to say how they feel, how they really feel, not ya know, some words that some stranger put in their mouth. Words like love, that don’t mean anything."
ii. Letters to Juliet. This is a story about finding the love you think you lost forever. This is all about chasing the one you love even when you think it is too late. No, scratch that. It is never too late. It is all about letting go of perfection and embracing that someone who is meant perfectly meant for you. It is all about perfect timing because true love comes in the perfect moment and no one knows it, not even love. Claire searched for her Lorenzo after almost 50 years. Sophie went to Italy with his fiance’ only to go home having a change of heart. By encouraging Claire to find Lorenzo, Sophie didn’t only help her but also herself. She realized her real feelings and she found out that she is indeed in love with Charlie, Claire’s grandson. This movie is all about love and believing in it. It is all about knowing your real desire. It is all about finding yourself in an unfamiliar territory. It is all about seizing love because it is there in front of you.
Dear Claire, “What” and “If” are two words as non-threatening as words can be. But put them together side-by-side and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life: What if? What if? What if? I don’t know how your story ended but if what you felt then was true love, then it’s never too late. If it was true then, why wouldn’t it be true now? You need only the courage to follow your heart. I don’t know what a love like Juliet’s feels like - love to leave loved ones for, love to cross oceans for but I’d like to believe if I ever were to feel it, that I will have the courage to seize it. And, Claire, if you didn’t, I hope one day that you will. All my love, Juliet
iii. Friends With Benefits. This is a story about two people who were just recently wrecked because of failed relationships. They found each other not having intentions on being parts of each other’s lives. They became friends because he has no one on that place. They decided to do the deed with no strings attached. But then as time went by, they found themselves getting closer with each other and before they know it, they were officially attached. It turns out that they also have feelings to. They also want someone who would actually love them no matter how emotionally damaged they were. They also want someone who would not just sleep with them through the night but someone who would sleep next to them every night of their lives. After all, what they want is not just simply lust, it is love. They are hungry for it.
You know what I discovered? It’s not who you want to spend Friday night with, it’s who you want to spend all day Saturday with.
iv. The Vow. This is a story about forgotten love. This is about a relationship that was destroyed by an awful accident, the one that washed away the thing that should never be erased: memories. This is all about winning over someone you have won over. This is all about reviving the love that you swear is still there. When Paige lost her memories, Leo did everything just for her to remember him. He took her to the places where they have been. He gave her the things that she used to use. He accompanied her through all those times when she tried to remember. He played the songs she used to listen to. He did everything just for her to recognize him but then, he never succeeded. It turns out that even when the brain has forgotten everything that was stored in it, the memory of the heart is eternal. It turns out that even when you have forgotten everything, the destiny will never change and Paige’s destiny is with Leo. She may never revive her memories but still, she had the happily every after with the man of her life.
The moment of impact. The moment of impact proves potential for change. Has ripples effects far beyond what we can predict. Sending some particles crashing together. Making them closer than before. While sending others spinning off into great ventures. Landing them where you’ve never thought you’ve found them. That’s the thing about moments like these. You can’t, no matter how hard you try, controlling how it’s gonna affect you. You just gotta let the colliding part goes where they may. And wait. For the next collision.
v. 50 First Dates. This is a story about loving someone beyond their imperfections. This is about loving someone even when she can not remember you every single day. This is all about finding someone and fighting for her even when everything seems to tell you to let go. Lucy has a syndrome when she could not remember everything since the day of the accident. Whatever happens now, she will not remember tomorrow because on her mind, it is still the birthday of her father, the day of the accident. She met Henry and he thought it could be the start of something real only to find out that she could not remember him the day after. He knows how hard it is to make a girl who easily forgets fall in love with him but then he still tries. He did everything for her to love him every single day of her life. He did a lot of different things for her and he succeeded because he believes that true love can not be stopped by any kind of syndrome. True love is unstoppable.
You erased me from your memories because you thought you were holding me back from having a full and happy life. But you made a mistake. Being with you is the only way I could have a full and happy life. You’re the girl of my dreams… and apparently, I’m the man of yours.
vi. If Only. This is a story about not taking all the things around you for granted, specially those people who truly love and care for you. This is a story of second chances, of how are you gonna make up for everything you have missed. This is a story about love and how much are you willing to do just to save the ones you love. Ian doesn’t have much time to spend with his girlfriend, Samantha. He has been too focused with his career and he hates the little interruptions she does every time. Until one day, he was able to see what will happen in a day and at the end of that day, she lost Samantha. So he did everything that he could do to save Samantha’s life. He did everything to make her happy. He did everything to make her feel like she is the girl that he truly loves. He regretted all those times he took her for granted, instead, he treasured her and he made sure that she would not be gone.. even if it means losing his own life.
I have to tell you this and you need to hear it. I loved you since I met you, but I wouldn’t allow myself to truly feel it until today. I was always thinking ahead, making decisions soaked with fear… Today, because of you… what I learned from you; every choice I made was different and my life has completely changed… and I’ve learned that if you do that, then you’re living your life fully… it doesn’t matter if you have five minutes or fifty years. Samantha if not for today, if not for you I would never have known love at all… So thank you for being the person who taught me to love… and to be love.
