Happy (late) Thursday from Indonesia! Let’s participate in the incredible weekly Thursday Movie Picks hosted by Wandering through the Shelves Blog.
This weekly blog series has always been an interesting feature to follow every week. Yet, I never thought that Thursday would be so busy I lost keeping track on this feature, until now I finally participate… in the end of January.
The rule has always been simple (in case anyone wanna join this, too): Each week there is a topic for you to create a list of three movies. Your picks can either be favourites/best, worst, hidden gems, or if you’re up to it one of each. For further details visit the series main page here.
This week’s Thursday Movie Picks is All in the Family Edition – Married Couples Movies, and here comes my picks:
001. Blue Valentine: In this Derek Cianfrance’s drama, the end of a marriage year is depicted in a dark, grim atmosphere that makes you wish you are not in such situation. The couple was a dream couple but their downfall was more than just a nightmare, it’s real.
002. The Notebook: It doesn’t seem like a marriage movie, not until you watched it ’til the very end. Noah and Allie was a perfect couple from their summer fling moment to their old-time-together emotional moment. This is a perfect example of a summer lover ended up as a most caring husband ever, that’s the key-point of a marriage for men, ain’t it?
003. Before Midnight: It took 18 years to finally saw Jesse and Celine talked about their daily-base marriage. We never really knew how their marriage was going, but judging from their convocation, it’s a warm one. Once again, this is a perfect example how a stranger could finally being a catalyst in a marriage. The point is they talk; and that’s what people do in marriage.
Oh, 2 Ryan Gosling’s movie there.
