Breaking Emotions Blogathon: Awkward

breaking emotions blogathon

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! 😉

Wrapping up the Valentine’s Marathon: She’s The Man (2006)

There was a bundle of movies that was supposed to be in the original list, but it came to the point that I realized it should be a romantic comedy to end off the marathon.  Why? Because its supposed to be happy.  I don’t want to end this bawling my eyes out or telling you about some bittersweet romantic story.  I can do that some other time this year.  The movie I was supposed to watch was A Walk to Remember but I’ve bumped that back for now.  My boyfriend was going to sit with me through a movie so might as well choose one that both of us knows that we enjoy.  By the way, I only have this because I stole it from his movie stash and never gave it back. But still lets take a look at it…

she`s the manDirector: Andy Fickman

Cast: Amanda Bynes, Channing Tatum, Laura Ramsey, Vinnie Jones, Robert Hoffman, James Kirk

Viola (Amanda Bynes)  is part of the Cornwall women’s Soccer team and is a really good soccer player.  When the women’s soccer team is cut and the men’s soccer team won’t let her join, she has to find another way.  When she comes home, her mother is trying to convince her to be a debutante.  When she dodges that, she goes up to find her brother Sebastian (James Kirk) getting ready to leave to London and skip school for 2 weeks to pursue his passion in music and he asks Viola to call in to his new school Illyria to make up a reason for his absence.  Suddenly, she gets an idea to disguise her brother for the two weeks so that she can beat the Cornwall’s soccer team to prove to them that she’s as good as them.  She asks her friends to help turn her into a guy.  When she starts school, pretending to be a guy turns out to be harder than she expected especially when this affects her social life and her chance at getting into the soccer team as well.  At the same time, her hot roommate, Duke (Channing Tatum) is also part of the soccer team and when she gets put into 2nd string by their coach (Vinnie Jones).  Duke  likes the hottest girl in school, Olivia (Laura Ramsey) but doesn’t know how to approach her.  When he sees that she gets along with Sebastian, Duke asks for help in exchange for getting her into first string in the soccer team by the Cornwall game. Caught between trying to get to first string on the soccer team, not getting caught of disguising as a guy, being pursued by her brother’s ex-girlfriend and not letting her mom suspect that she’s taking her brother’s place and at the same time fulfilling her expectations as debutante..the situation gets a bit more complex.

I really had no expectations when I saw this a few years ago. Its possibly one of the five romantic comedies that my boyfriend will watch and NOT roll his eyes at.  This movie is just full of laugh out loud moments.  Even though I know what happens already and this is possibly the third or fourth time I’ve seen it, I still just can’t help but laugh so hard that I get tears in my eyes.  Its just full of silly moments and the absurdity of how anyone would just laugh at a guy that acted like that (even if she was just pretending).  I don’t know how others feel about this movie but to me and my boyfriend, it gears towards our type of humour.

This is possibly the best that I’ve seen Amanda Bynes.  I’ve seen her afterwards in Hairspray and Easy A in supporting roles.  This one really is just hilarious.  And plus, Channing Tatum practically one of his first roles where he’s taking somewhat of a leading male role.  As much as I didn’t like Channing Tatum a lot in his beginning roles, this one I actually like.  He’s just so adorable with his reactions when he starts getting all not sure how to act around the girl he likes.  And as much as I don’t usually swoon over actors, I mean Channing Tatum is pretty hot in this.

Apparently this was based on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.  I’ve never read of it and I don’t really know the story either.  Maybe I should find time and read some Shakespeare…although its going to take a whole lot of time to finish and understand what I just read.  It could be a refreshing read though.

This was the perfect way to end my Valentine’s marathon. Laughing and enjoying myself to a nice romantic comedy that didn’t shower you with too much lovey-dovey scenarios but more on the lines of just being silly fun.  If you’re into that sort of dumb silly humor, you should check it out.  No guarantees though since humor is the tricky thing that differs to each person’s taste!

What type of humor are you into? What is your favorite comedy? Is Channing Tatum a yes or no?

Just a side question, do you enjoy these marathons? Is there one that you’d like to suggest for me to do some time?

One more special post in a few hours and I’m going to give you all some peace! Have fun!
