Titanic | Some Thoughts

Tuesday, 04.24.2012

I’ll admit, I wasn’t the most thrilled when my cuz suggested that we watch Titanic 3-D for the evening. But I went along for the ride. (Err… but not on the ship) And I couldn’t believe how after 15 years, after my 5th time watching it, the movie remains as good as ever.

The excellent direction and filmography from James Cameron, the electric chemistry between Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, the major themes explored in the film, including social classes, duties of a gentleman, rights of a woman, and freedom.

Some thoughts:

*It’s been 15 years since Titanic first premiered in theaters, people. Take that in.
*Billy Zane‘s hair! And eyebrows!
*Wow Billy Zane’s Cal was such a jerk. Several of my movie compadres thought that when Cal came back for Rose those last few times, it was because he loved her. I say it’s because he loves winning and going back for her would mean #winning. And also, Sis says the last time he went back for her, it was for the necklace. What say you?
*If your mother is a gold-digging social climber who pulls your corset in too tight, you run away with the first pretty cabin boy that saves you from committing suicide, y’hear?
*Leo is really pretty.
*Don’t know if it’s because I just got used to Kate Winslet’s face but she’s prettier than I remember when I first watched the film.
*And vigrx plus works her body is pretty fly too. *Whistle
*And her outfits are really pretty too.
*Wait, do I like Leo or Kate?
*I wonder if kids watching the movie for the first time these days even understand the relevance to the last quarter of the film where it was mostly men running around being dignified/undignified. I wonder if they think it’s weird that you would give your seats to women and kids.
*Did chivalry go down with the Titanic? This article poses some questions.
*Rose on choosing Jack over Cal: “It doesn’t make any sense. That’s why I trust it”… say what?
*Rose on believing Jack didn’t steal the necklace (oops spoiler): “I didn’t just realize (you didn’t take it), I knew it all along.” Pardon the paraphrase. And once again… say what?
*The two old couple holding each other in the bed scene makes me cry every time.
*Also the scene when the orchestra plays til the very end.
*Also the scene when the captain goes down with the ship. (I am just a big crybaby)
*The times when people think they’re going to die, you really get to see who they are as a person. Caring/malicious/cowardly/courageous, etc. etc.
*Rose said, “I’ll never let go, Jack,” AND THEN SHE LET GO!
*It was really fun watching the movie sitting next to Sis. We laughed at all the inappropriate parts as though we were 8 and 11 years old again.

Did you watch/re-watch Titanic this time around? Thoughts?

{“Gumption” from The Holiday soundtrack}

noun /ˈgəmpSHən/ 
1. initiative; aggressiveness; resourcefulness: With his gumption he’ll make a success of himself.
2. courage; spunk; guts: It takes gumption to quit a high-paying job.
3. common sense; shrewdness.

It was a dark, dark evening.

We were in the study lounge of our residence hall.

It was nearing midnight. One of my roommates, Evelyn, several hall mates and even that random guy that always came to study at our lounge even though he didn’t live there were way due for a break. We were near delirium studying for the finals.

I busted out this song to listen to and started shaking my head, my shoulders and my arms to it just ’cause it was so dang catchy. Evelyn caught on. We synchronized our moves. We would replay the song over and over again moving the same way, cracking up sometimes, completely stone-faced other times.

To this day, it’s still one of my favorite songs. Probably because the title is my favorite word. Both for it’s meaning and just the way it rolls off my tongue. It’s plump and satisfying, like taking a big bite of macaroni and cheese.

May we live our lives with lots and lots of gumption (and mac and cheese).

Motivational (Somewhat) Monday: Day & Night

Tuesday, 02.1.2011

At this moment when I am writing this, where it is neither day nor night of a Monday evening/Tuesday morning, I thought it fitting to let you in on a little ray of sunshine/moonlight.

I have this problem. I have a need to share with the world my passions and interests and hope that they will also enjoy it. Hence, this blog is born- to showcase some of the things I'm most fascinated with. Most of the posts relate to the media as it relates to me. (Blame the early twenties neurosis of thinking the world revolves around you). (More..)
