Myke and I are both movie enthusiasts. We both wanted to be involved in film-writing, producing, and things like that. We both studied films in school. That’s one way Myke and I bonded when we first started dating. We have certain films that we never tire of and that if we were to watch them, it would be the same as watching it for the first time.
The Breakfast Club. This is Myke’s all time favorite movie. It has everything you could want in a film, love, action, and a story you can relate to. Directed by the amazing John Hughs, who knows how to relate to young adults. I’ve watched this movie probably at least once a year since I first saw it when I was in high school. I never get tired of watching this movie.
Clerks. This movie is the first one in director Kevin Smith’s ‘New Jersey series’ that include movies like Clerks II, Chasing Amy, and Mallrats and all of them have the same meaning to me. This movie is about two guys who work dead end jobs and the events that happened on just one day. Kevin Smith directs films that people can relate to and enjoy. He is a guy who likes to tell stories and has his friends act in his films. They are fun to watch because it reminds me of college. We used to watch his films a lot. Keep your eyes open for Clerks III, coming soon.
The Boondock Saints. Now I do have to give a little warning with this one. It’s about two men who feel like that were told by God to kill bad people. The movie is about detectives who follow these men who are killing mob bosses. It gets you thinking about the morality of what they are doing. They are killing, but they are not killing just anyone. I really like the way the story is told. The editing in the movie is incredible.
Star Wars trilogy. These movies are amazing. The first one was actually used by one of our professors to show how a story is to be told and how to write a solid script. Of course the story of a young man coming to terms with who he is as a Jedi Knight. I watched this with my dad when I was young. I even cried and refused to finish it when Obi Wan Kanobi dies. Yes I eventually finished. Amazing films.
