Breaking Emotions Blogathon: Hate and Love

The last set of emotions in Mettel Ray's blogathon are here! This week, she asks us to examine hate and love. Narrowing this down was really bloody difficult. I could go on and on and on with these. I do have to give a big THANK YOU to Mettel Ray for this blogathon! This is the most fun I've had doing one of these in awhile, and I'm kind of sad that it's ending. I hope she does it again, only with TV shows. *cough cough* *hint hint*

1)"I hate you, and if you ever come near me again, I'll kill you and your entire family." - The Butterfly Effect

I have never really loved and hated a movie simultaneously so much until I saw The Butterfly Effect. This is one of my favorite movies until the last 5 minutes. When Evan goes back and tells Kayleigh he hates her, that way they never become friends, and he never ruins her life. SERIOUSLY? Fuck that. Those two were meant to be together. (Although the alternate ending on the DVD, where Evan strangles himself with his umbilical chord while in utero was worse.)

2) Arliss Coates' face. - Old Yeller

You could say Old Yeller died because he had rabies and had to be put down, or you could say Old Yeller died trying to protect the most irresponsible child of all time. Way to go Arliss. It's not just his fault, his older brother is to blame too. I hate this movie so fucking much.

3) George Lucas tries his hand in romance - Star Wars episode 2: Attack of the Clones

Oh my God, what the fuck is this dialogue doing in a Star Wars movie? -  "From the moment I met you, all those years ago, not a day has gone by when I haven't thought of you. And now that I'm with you again... I'm in agony. The closer I get to you, the worse it gets. The thought of not being with you- I can't breath. I'm haunted by the kiss that you should never have given me. My heart is beating... hoping that kiss will not become a scar. You are in my very soul, tormenting me... what can I do?- I will do anything you ask." " I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere. Not like here. Here everything is soft and smooth." - And those are just the ones I bothered to copy and paste. God forbid I re-watch this scene to get the rest.

1) Spectacular - American Beauty

Words cannot describe how much I love this scene. Anyone who's spent all of two seconds on my blog knows that American Beauty is my favorite movie, and this scene is just so perfect to me. I find it breathtakingly beautiful. Really, it's just red pedals falling on white sheets, but it's so much more than that to me. Plus Lester's dialogue is perfect. "It's the weirdest thing. I feel like I've been in a coma for 20 years, and I'm just now waking up."

2) Jamaal and Latika finally kiss - Slumdog Millionaire

I'm not sure if I've ever wanted two people to kiss as badly as I did in Slumdog Millionaire. They had been through so much and I just loved that scene at the train station. Plus the two actors are still together in real life, and that's lovely in it's own right.

3) The first glimpse of The Joker - The Dark Knight

My nerd boner was raging when we first got to see The Joker's face in The Dark Knight. I will always love Heath Ledger's Joker. The more I think about it, this might be my favorite performance of all time.


  1. BAHAHA, nerd true! And hell yes to the Old Yeller, Star Wars and American Beauty mentions!

  2. the alternate ending of Butterfly Effect is the stupidest thing I've ever seen lol. Oooh that Star Wars scene is so, so bad...

  3. Brace yourself. I know it's just an honor to be nominated, but....are you sitting? YOU'RE BEING GIVEN THE SUNSHINE AWARD!!! Seriously though, you're doing some great work on this blog, so take a break, have a little fun and bask in the glory of your awesomeness!

  4. Oh awesome pick on The Joker, that is quite a performance indeed. A modern classic really, it's just tragic that it claimed Ledger's life so to speak, as he was so disturbed by it after playing that character.

    1. I like to think that rumor about Ledger being so disturbed isn't true. But who knows, tragic either way.
