Day 1: My favorite movie
I can’t help being unoriginal here, but my favorite movie is Titanic.
The way Rose and Jack fall for each other, and the way they have to part, all kind of emotions break loose in me. That’s what I like about movies in general. The way you get sucked into them, and the way you start forgetting your own existence.
Titanic has the whole package. Beautiful music, great acting, the ‘based on a true story’ aspect and its special effects. And it’s just a beautiful story, and the ones who disagree, well, let’s agree to disagree.
Whenever I feel sad, I feel like watching Titanic. It’s not that Jack’s little swim in the ocean would make me happy, but it totally makes me forget my own misery.
I laugh while Jack and Rose dance with the regular folk, I cry when ‘the old lady dropped it into the ocean in the end’ [Britney Spears, Oops, I did it again, 2000] and I swoon when Jack meets Rose at the staircase.
And yes, every time I wish the end could be different. But alas, the end is indeclinable.
My misery gets completely overshadowed by Titanic and that’s the whole idea! Titanic is simply the best!
