Last week, Mettel Ray announced that she was going to host a second blogathon. Last year my involvement in movies was really limited but she held a very impressive one. After reading through this year’s, I decided to give it a shot. Starting this week and for the next 3 weeks, she will post up 2 emotions where we get to pick our most memorable 3 scenes each (if we pick both emotions) and 5 scenes (if we pick one emotion) to post in whichever way we want. Sounds like a reasonable task 🙂
This Monday, she initiated the blogathon with FEAR & AWKWARD. If you want to see the full description, check it out HERE, maybe you want to join in the fun!
I was going to choose the 3 scenes for each emotion but then FEAR and midnight searches didn’t go too well for me. I couldn’t even bear opening the sound so I ended up staring at my movie collection and thinking up two more scenes to fill up the AWKWARD emotion 🙂
AWKWARD is an interesting emotion to use, since Mettel says that it can be either funny and embarrassing for the character or ridiculous. When you look at it that way, then it becomes a bit harder. Although, my life is surrounded by lots of chick flicks so there’s a good amount of them, just need to decide which makes the cut for “most memorable”.
1. Bridesmaids –> Airplane scene
Since Mettel already used the pooping in the street as the example, I had to find another scene from Bridesmaids since its full of ridiculous and funny awkward moments. The airplane scene was one where I found was funny awkward but so very awkward for Annie (Kristen Wiig).
2. Easy A –> Olive’s Fake Sex with Brandon
Olive having fake sex with Brandon has to be one of my favorite parts in Easy A (although I do love the movie to bits). Its a part I find crazy hilarious. I don’t know who I find its more embarrassing for though, Brandon unsuccessful making noises and saying inappropriate comments during fake sex or that Olive (Emma Stone) has to engage into this activity.
3. She’s the Man –>” I get really bad nose bleeds”
Tampons up your nose. Enough said. LOL!
4. Hairspray –> “I’m a bad bad girl who needs to be punished”
Imagine doing this extremely embarrassing thing in front of the guy you’ve been crushing on for ages. DEFINITELY awkward!
5. Sixteen Candles –> Grandma Helen and Grandpa Fred (video from 0:00 – 1:00)
I don’t know how close grandparents are supposed to be after you are after 12 years old (or maybe even 10) but being smothered from grandpa like that is already on weird territory and then getting felt up by grandma is just a huge no-no. We may not have felt the scene but it has embarrassing all over it. Thank goodness it was at home, right?
That about wraps it up for my most memorable scenes. I probably have a good dozen rumbling about in my brain but these were the first that came to me 🙂
Thanks to Mettel for organizing this and for coming up with this great emotion. I had a fun time reliving these hilarious movie moments. Can’t wait to see what is going to be next week’s emotions! 🙂
She’s totally awesome to go on over and check her out and I urge you to join in! It’ll be lots of fun, I guarantee it! 😉
