imagine rose getting a chance to visit turkey with abe... learning turkish from her father and getting family recipes from him... him taking her to all the places he would have taken her to if he had thought it would be safe for him to raise her...
So over on Twitter we are planning a six week long read-a-thon. This way we can reread vampire academy and well enjoy it together. Who would be interested?
Because sometimes all you can do is curl up in your comfiest clothes with your coziest blanket and forget the world for a while.
Sabrina (specifically the 90's version): Okay, maybe I'm just a slut for Harrison Ford, but this movie is like one of those dreams you never want to wake up from. Just soft and serene like slowly waking to the sound of La Vie En Rose playing on the street below and a soft breeze drifting through open windows and gauzy curtains. Simply put, it reminds me of what it means to dream.
The Aristocats: Speaking of Paris, or at least the aesthetic, this little animated work of art looks like an impressionist painting come to life. Granted, there are some definite problematic (and down-right racist) themes, but the beauty and the simplicity of this film is just *chef's kiss*. It's my go to when I need a little nostalgia and feel the need to mourn the loss of that childlike wonder that we all carried with us once upon a time.
Ever After: I've always been a sucker for a good princess story and this one is the best you could ever ask for. Drew Barrymore and Angelica Huston shine in this cinderella tale and it just puts a smile on my face every time I see it. Lighthearted and wonderful but never dull, nothing else will ever compare.
The Addams Family (1 & 2): Speaking of Angelica Huston, if you're in the mood for something a bit more macabre, you can never go wrong with the 90s version of the famed family. Unlike the remake a few years back (it was total and utter shit, by the way, but that's a story for another time) it is perfection incarnate and will undoubtedly make you want to change your last name to Addams and find a severed hand to snap along to a jaunty tune.
The Princess Bride: Arguably the most quotable movie (possibly ever?) on the list, The Princess Bride is my trusted favorite for days when I need a good laugh and a soft smile. Growing up, it was what I watched when I was sick and I cannot wait to one day play it for my kids when they're home sick. I think Carey Elwes said it best, "There's a shortage of perfect films in this world, it would be a shame to damage this one."
The Sound of Music: Ridiculously long and utterly beautiful, how can you not fall in love with the story of the Von Trapps? Not even mentioning the fact the Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer are extraordinarily captivating throughout the whole of it.
The Princess Diaries (1 & 2): Speaking of Julie Andrews, I must have seen the princess diaries a thousand times growing up. There was a time, during the pits of my depression, that I would watch these movies every day. It's such a comforting and wonderful story that just resonates with every little girl who ever dreamed of being a princess. And if there was ever a perfect sequel, this one was it.
P.S. I sob every time Breakaway plays in that one scene.
Indiana Jones (any of them): Whenever I'm craving adventure, I watch Indy. Maybe it's got something to do with Harrison Ford, maybe they're just really good. All I know is that I would give everything to team up with Dr. Jones for an adventure. And though Raiders is probably one of my favorite movies of all time, I actually would choose The Last Crusade as my favorite of the saga. But that said, they're all wonderful... even the fourth one which gets so much undue hate for the aliens but really was just as fanatical as the arc of the covenant melting people's faces off or some scary guy reaching into someone's chest to pull out their hearts (not gonna lie, that one scarred me for life). Either way, I love them all to pieces.
Honorable Mentions: The Goonies, Lilo & Stitch, Pretty Woman, Jurassic Park, Meet The Robinsons, Mamma Mia, Clue, & Gone With The Wind
So get yourself a cup of tea, find your fuzziest pair of socks, and just float for a while in someone else's story. It's all gonna be okay, I pinky swear.

📽 The Princess Diaries (2001)
Ahhhh, this is such a classic. I’ve never read the books, but I’ve heard that they’re pretty different from the movies. Honestly, I don’t really care, though, because I love the movies! I feel like this movie was such a 2000 girls’ staple. Like I don’t know anyone my age who hasn’t seen it. If you haven’t watched this movie, I’m disappointed in you, and you need to go watch it right now. That’s all.
Sex/nudity: 1/10 (kissing)
Language: 1/10 (very mild)
Violence: 1/10 (some sports injuries, a car accident)
Overall rating: 9/10
@chaoticemobookwormpickles and @sayly (who i can’t actually tag for some reason) asked for these a little while back so, here ya go!
rose doesnt have a great track record with academics
she never really felt like her classes in school were actually contributing to her education, unless they were guardian theory classes
when she had to take precalc she got so annoyed
her exact words to dimitri were “its not like in a fight with a strigoi one of them is gonna stop and stay ‘wait! graph this function and i’ll leave!’”
he responded with “you never know” under his breath
but by the time rose and lissa get to college, lissa is freaking out about queen stuff
so she majors in political science so she can get a better grip on it
but now shes freaking out about school
shes pulling a C- for the first time in her life
like she figured it’d be a little challenging, but that she’d pick up on it pretty fast
none of the material makes sense to her
she literally thinks shes gonna fail one of her law classes
rose however, is excited about school for the first time in her life
she wasnt doing great with some of the theory at first, not bc she didnt understand it but bc she thought it was stupid
she never really got over that but once she saw how it applied to moroi politics and dealing with council, she figured it was worth it
she loves her law classes
she doesn’t just think they’re interesting, but she realizes that by studying law, she can figure out how to work around the rules without actually breaking them
when the have a break and come home to dimitri and christian, and she tells dimitri exactly that, he gets scared
like “great, now she can get away with anything, just what we needed”
christian has the same thought.
shes excited for school for the first time
despite dimitri’s initial fear of rose’s law breaking, he’s really proud of rose and so happy for her that she found this
when abe gets wind of this, he’s also super proud
and can’t stop thinking of all the mafia family possibilities
just one more thing for dimitri to worry about
when they graduate rose has a higher gpa than lissa
and she wont stop talking about it
rose sorta becomes lissa’s unofficial advisor
which works out perfectly
so rose spends hours and hours with lissa pouring over official document, planning for meetings, writing and editing speeches, researching ancient moroi law
between that, her guarding shifts, and the desk work/ planning she has to do as a royal guard, lissa realizes shes taking up a lot of rose’s time
so she starts to pay her for it
rose is like lissa wtf
but she just goes with it after a while
lissa consults her on almost everything
and rose is really great about advocating about dhampir issues that lissa hadn’t even thought of bc they’re not discussed and lissa doesn’t have that lived experience
i have this one scene in my head that i can never stop thinking about
lissa, christian, dimitri, and rose are all having a little family dinner sorta thing in lissa and christian’s apt complex, royal living quarters or whatever
lissa and rose are on the couch/ coffee table area going over laws strategizing for a council meeting about guardian rights and benefits, so they’re also going over some really old laws and trying to figure out exactly what they’re saying
and they’re super caught up in it
and dimitri and christian are making dinner (and by now they’re really good friends; i wanna write about their friendship development at some point)
they’ve done this so many times that they’ve got a really good rhythm going
one of them call out that dinner is ready
and lissa mumbles back something about “wrapping it up”
and dimitri just pauses and looks at rose
and he’s just like
and christian does the same
and they’re gushing to each other about how cool their significant others are
and rose gets up from the couch and she’s all
“talkin’ about us?” knowing full well that they were
dimitri’s just like “yeah” and leans in for a kiss
and lissa comes up to join everyone
they start setting the table and sitting down to eat
and its just super cute and domestic
sometimes its the reverse
where dimitri and christian are working on lesson plans and proposals for moroi defense classes and mandates and such
and lissa and rose cook
except its mostly lissa cooking and rose reading ingredients and instructions and then doing paper work or something
sometimes they’re all too busy
and they sit around working on all their respective stuff together bc they just enjoy all being in the same space
so they order in
they have a drawer full of takeout menus from around court
with all their favorite orders marked
ugh i j love them all so much
wow this really got away from me
feel free to add stuff! i always like to hear what you guys think!
The Witches (2020)
