Isabelle Ronin | My Top 5 Favorite Movies
GIVEAWAY: win a copy of CHASING RED
September 5, 2017
There are many things that inspire me, and one that’s close to my heart are
movies. I love spending more than an hour or two getting lost in a good romance
film. It’s like reading, except faster, and have more control of your
imagination because the faces, voices and places are already visually given to
you. But the feelings a scene invokes can sometimes be stronger since you can
see it. Here are a few movies that have inspired me.
- The Notebook
Noah and Allie. These two are my ultimate OTP. He was the cocky, fun, confident
guy who was born on the wrong side of the tracks. She was the good girl, her
days occupied with Mathematics and piano lessons who was spoiled by her rich
parents. But it wasn’t until they met each other that their passions were
unleashed and changed their priorities.
Love letters, the one that got away, a man hellbent on finishing a house with
the love of his life in his mind. There’s something about that first true love
that changes something in you and stays with you, and every relationship after
that will be tainted by that memory, because like Noah said, “It wasn’t over.
It’s still isn’t over!” Swoon.
- PS. I Love You
Holly promised herself she won’t fall in love with anyone after her father left
them, but then Gerry came like a tornado and swept her off her feet. And then he
died. I cried so hard when Holly came running to her mom screaming that it
didn’t matter that her life was going so well. Gerry wasn’t there.
That intense longing you feel for someone who’s never going to come back. You
try to move on, but it seems impossible. Gerry didn’t make it easier for Holly
when after he died, his letters kept coming. But he helped her heal. She just
needed to realize that the strength she was looking for was inside her all along.
- Cruel Intentions
Ah, the tragic love story of Sebastian and Annette. This movie is unforgettable.
Sebastian was self-centred, found joy in torturing other people, and didn’t have
a direction in life. Bored and restless, he made a bet with his cruel stepsister
Kathryn. Sleep with the virgin Annette or lose his beloved car. But Annette was
inherently good and generous, something he’s never known before. His plans
backfired and he fell in love. I love romance stories when both the characters
inspire each other and change themselves for the better.
- Gone with the Wind
She’s a spitfire, he’s a wild one. This movie was a rollercoaster ride. I loved
and hated the characters, but no matter how frustrated I felt, something kept
pulling me back. I loved Scarlett’s strong will to take care of her family and
her land. I loved that Rhett knew her so well that it didn’t matter how hard she
hid her intentions from him, and even though she was as selfish as they come,
Rhett kept coming back to her. Whatever it is, this movie has a place in my heart.
- Pretty Woman
A street smart, charming female main character. Add in the red dress, wide red
lips, wild red hair, and I was mesmerized. Vivian was a prostitute, Edward was a
rich businessman, and their arrangement was supposed to be strictly business.
They both knew they shouldn’t fall for each other, but it was impossible to stop
the feelings growing between them. Society would judge them, but they risked it
all to be together.
Some people might think that Edward was the one who saved Vivian, but I think
that she was the one who saved him. He was in a downward spiral of ruining
himself and others, but she showed him what he was missing and saved his heart
and soul in the process.
