Day 11: You Favorite Movie From Your Childhood

Since Macaulay Cullkin was the only actor I remember from my childhood, and I think he’s such a cute boy back then, So some of his movies were chosen to be my favorite movie from my childhood. Home Alone would be the most famous movie that he played. But my favorite one is this, “MY GIRL”.

The cute Macaulay Culkin as Thomas  with a pretty girl Anna Chlumsky as Vada in this movie. Do you guys still remember that? Vada is a tomboy girl and she’s just eleven years old but she is a bit dramatic little girl who loves to exageratte about death. It is because his father is a director fo a funeral and their residence served as a funeral home.Vada hangs out with Thomas, the unpopular boy who’s allergic to everything. One day Thomas and Vada went to the wood and decided to knock down the beehive, while doing so, Vada lost her ‘mood ring’, Vada went back home but Thomasreturned back by himself to the wood to find Vada’s mood ring. Unfortunately, Thomas gets stung by the bees and died from an allergic reaction.

What a very sad ending, but I love watching this over and over because Anna Chlumsky looks so pretty in that movie. In my thought back than, the most pretty american girl is her, and the most cute boy is Macaulay Culkin. Hehehehe….what a shallow reason.

So that’s my favorite movie from my childhood. Oh I forgot to say that I love the music and the song from this movie. My favorite scene here is, when Vada got locked in the basement and she tried to calm herself by singing a song, I forgot what song but I still remember the tune and back than, I memorize that song. Arggghhh I forgot now. Need to watch it again then.

see you in the next post.

Day 10 : Your Favorite Director

I never really pay attention about who is the director when watching a movie. I mean, I don’t really know their names. But If i have to mention one name, then Steven Spielberg will be the one. Who don”t know him? very famous with so many amazing movies with incredible effect on the screen.

I would tell you one of his great movie, “Jurassic Park”. Back in 90 something, My dad only has vhs at home (no dvd player yet at that time) he brought home a video of Jurassic Park. At that time, I was still in Junior High and I felt amazed watching the movie and from that movie I still remember that I thought the dinosours were real. I thought they were still alive. I thought the Jurassic park and everything in the movie were real.They really look like real in my eyes, and it made me keep thinking how scary the adventure they had. We watched the movie over and over because that movie really made me excited.

Well, now after I grew up, of course all that thought had gone but still, I admire Steven Speilberg, a very genius director who’s able to create such a great movie like that.

For Indonesian director, I like Joko Anwar and Upi. Their movies were also good and kinda different from others and unique. I hope Indonesia will have a brilliant director like Steven Speilberg.Amen
