Adri Leya vs. Cara: Movie Time!

While Lucy Vonne's away for the most of the week, I'm been filling the void with my darling friend Cara - not that the cardboard cutout of Lucy Vonne isn't doing the trick, but she's really just so quiet. Today, both Cara and I had the day off, so we decided to have a movie marathon and pick one out for each mood. Turns out that Cara and I have drastically different taste in film.

Cara's Movie Picks vs. Adri Leya's

When You're Feeling Down:

Adri Leya: Requiem for a Dream. I like to keep the shitty mood intact by watching drug addicts and hookers destroy themselves to a killer soundtrack. I'm going to go cut myself now.

Cara: Dirty Dancing. When I'm in a funk, I like to get funky!

When You're Feeling Romantic:

Cara: 50 First Dates. I find this movie easy to relate to, because I've literally been on fifty first dates. Unlike the movie, however, they've been with different men - and involve walks of shame and sobbing.

Adri Leya: Natural Born Killers or True Romance. Nothing says 'I love you' like psychotics on a killing rampage -and they do it together. Aww...why can't I have that?

When You're Feeling Silly:

Adri Leya: Pee Wee's Big Adventure or Uncle Buck. I don't consider you a friend if you haven't seen either of these. Needless to say, gigantic pancakes make me feel great.

Cara: Dumb and Dumber. Because the Soup du Jour sounds delicious.

When You Feel Like Scaring Yourself:

Adri Leya: The Mothman Prophecies or She's the Man. Oh, and that French horror film I saw in the artsy theater, L'Interieur. If you want to frighten yourself into speechlessness, pick up this winner.

Cara: I'm like a 5-year-old, so even some scenes in Disney movies still scare the shit out of me. We'll play it safe and go with The Care Bear's Movie.

When You Feel Like Being Cerebral:

Adri Leya: Momento. WTF is going on here? And on a serious note, The Fountain is one of my all time favorite thinkers.

Cara: The Usual Suspects and American Beauty. Kevin Spacey in both - coincidence? I think not.

When You Feel Like Watching a Chick Flick:

Cara: Steel Magnolias. Sigh. "Our ability to accessorize is what separates us from the animals." [Editor's Note: Cara just pulled several quotes from this movie out of her ass - from memory.]

Adri Leya: Kung Fu Hustle, Boondock Saints or Reservoir Dogs. Ergh fiiiiine - you know me, I abhor chick flicks. But if I must, hands down, Mean Girls. That movie is so underrated.
