I started off so well with this 30 Days Of, but then it sort of dropped off at the end. I think I’ll have a bit of a break from 30 Days Of after this post – I worry that the blog becomes just that when it’s being done, and until have a lot of content planned I’ll leave it. If you have any suggestions for topics when I pick it back up again, let me know in the comments!
Day 26: A movie that disappointed you the most
Hmm, a difficult one. Disappointed may be a strong word, but back when the movies first came out I was super into The Maze Runner, and I really loved the first two films. It was really disappointing that the last one got delayed by so long, though I totally understand why. The fault is purely mine but in the three years that had passed between The Scorch Trials and The Death Cure, I had forgotten a lot of what happened, and spent a lot of the beginning of The Death Cure trying to catch up with myself. I had read the books, but as is often the case, they all blended into one and it was hard to separate events into what had happened in film and what I knew happened because of the books.
Day 27: Your favourite quote from any movie
I think one of the best, and most memorable, quotes is either “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, or “Don’t take life so seriously, you’ll never get out alive.” from Van Wilder: Party Liaison, of all places.
Both are pretty aligned with one another, and I think of them often when I find myself getting overly stressed.
Day 28: Best movie franchise
In terms of consistency the best movie franchise is probably the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I really enjoy most of those films, and can’t really think of many I hate or dislike, whereas the same cannot be said other franchises like Star Wars, or Jurassic Park, as examples.
Day 29: A movie you used to love but now hate
I think I’ve spoken before about my absolutely dire taste in movies during my teenage years, but when I was about 16 or so, I really loved all of those parody movies that were super popular, like Epic Movie, or Not Another Teen Movie (both of which I loved, for some reason). I know cannot think of anything worse than watching movies like that.
Day 30: A movie everyone should watch
I can’t really think of anything that’s a ‘classic’ to me, I have a lot of favourite films that not many people I know have seen that I will always try to get them to watch; Popstar, A Silent Voice, Rushmore. I could go on. Ultimately, I can only suggest things, I have no power here!
