Tuesday Couch Potatoes – Love Story

The theme for the week is Love story. I watched this film few years ago but re-viewed the film again last week on DVD. That’s how I loved Ryan in this movie.

The story is about two young lovers named Allie Hamilton (played by Rachel McAdams) and Noah Calhoun (Ryan Gosling). The two meet one evening at carnival but when parents learned about it, they separated Noah and Allie. During separation, Allie meets one handsome young soldier named Lon and became engaged… Go watch the full movie and find out why I love Ryan Gosling in The Notebook. I know this surely will become your favorite too.

Ryan Gosling dated RAchel McAdams after filming this movie but later broke up February 2007. They reunited again sometime in 2008 but called it quits after four months again of relationship. I just fall in love with these two great actors. Have you watched the MTV Best Kiss Award in 2005? It was such a sweet moment that the two have shared while accepting the award.

This week theme for TCP is order in the court!! My entry is My Cousin Vinny.

I seldom watch movie with any courtroom scene, but when I saw this movie with a touch of comedy, I became interested and watched the film. I also love Marissa Tomei whom I admired most in her movie “Only You” with co-stars Robert Downey Jr.

My Cousin Vinny is 1992 film starring Joe Pesci, Ralph Macchio, Marissa Tomei and featuring Fred Gwyne. Tthe story is about two young New Yorkers who were put on trial they did not commit. Tomei won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in this movie.

I am excited for TCP next week. I am so in love with Ryan Gosling right now and will feature him for love story theme next week.

It’s girl power for this week and my pick will be none other but Mulan! I have watched this movie several times. I remember many years back when I had a job interview. The interviewer asked me the last movie that I watched, probably wondering how vivid my memory is, and I told her it’s Mulan. Then interviewer asked me to give the synopsis of that movie. Because my kids watched this film several times, I almost memorized lines from that movie and gave her the full summary. And so, it goes.. The young girl named Mulan fought for her nation. She disguised herself as a man to take the place of her father who is too old to be in the battle. Eddie Murphy played the small dragon named Mushu in the movie..

TCP: A Merry Christmas Movie

Yay Christmas! And yes, Christmas too in my blog and my entry would be: Home Alone.
Home Alone is a movie about the adventure of Kevin, played by Macaulay Culkin. It all started when Kevin McCallister’s family flies to Paris for a Christmas vacation and Kevin was mistakenly left behind and instead head to New York and spend his Christmas alone. While he was enjoying his time, two intruders came into the house. The film was shown 19 years ago but I still remember the scenes on how Kevin outwitted the two intruders in the house. There’s no dull scene and this film made me laugh a lot.

I missed last week theme western movies and if I’m to submit my entry it would be Legends of the Fall for primary reason being Brad Pitt in the cast and the story behind it. Sorry Kikamz , I’ve been too busy into something, I’ll try to catch up every week for Tuesday Couch Potatoes.

So here’s my entry for this week’s American Presidents or First Families in the Movie.
Mine is Air force One.

I couldn’t think anyone other than Harrison Ford to play the perfect role of American president in this movie. The movie is about the president’s plane being hijacked by a group of militant Russian nationalists and tried to ransom the president and his family onboard the plane for the release of captured Russian general. Just like any other movies, there are some unimaginable scene in real life like hanging out at the back end of plane twice for hundreds of miles per hour. Overall, I like the movie from begining to end since the story has its own good effects with some action, tension and drama scenes.

Full summary up here.
