Innocent Kisses

“It’s the kind of kiss that inspires stars to climb into the sky and light up the world.” ― Tahereh Mafi, Ignite Me


With all honesty, I almost skipped this list but thank you Mandi for some eye-opening words! 😀

Because tomorrow’s the most romantic day of the year (do y’all agree?) Laduchessederat‘s The Great Book of Lists for today is about favorite onscreen kisses. ❤ (Okay, don’t hold off your smile, I know this made you smile! :D)

“So, this week, I’m suggesting you guys to list you favorite onscreen kisses, be it on TV or on the silver screen. What smooches makes you swoon, sigh, howl or cheer ? Are there any lips lock you watch over and over ? Have you had the pleasure to see two characters you’ve been rooting for finally find love ? OR are there kisses you wish you’d see on screen ?”

I know you want me to shut up now and proceed with the list 😁, so fine! 😀 BUT! I am NOT actually posting the exact kissing scenes. 🙂

Instead, I will be listing down movies with kissing scenes that made my heart flutter. ❤

1. 50 First Dates (2004)

Adam Sandler’s wit and humor will keep you entertained while Drew Barrymore’s heartfelt acting will make you love the movie more.

2. Titanic (1997)

I was a young lass when I first watched this movie so I do not really understand it at first. But when I finally watched it as a grown-up, this is indeed a classic love story worth sharing.

3. The Wedding Singer (1998)

A movie where the epic ‘Grow Old With You’ song came from. Isn’t that enough to make you watch this film? 😍 Drew and Adam’s chemistry is also so fun and cheesy to

4. Breaking Dawn (2011)

 I just love their wedding scene. 😊 The setting, those white flowers are just so breathtaking, the vows, and the couple itself. You need to see the sexy scenes of a vamp and a human! It’s funny yet hot! 😁

5. Love and other Drugs (2010)

Aside from the commendable performance of my favorite actress, Anne Hathaway, the movie’s plot is really worth to watch. The story explored way beyond sex and he part that explains Parkinson’s disease is an eye opener as well.

6. Letters to Juliet (2010)

Some may argue that the premise is so usual, boy meets girl, hated each other, then falls in love. But what I love about this movie is it’s deeper take on enduring love. Take Claire’s love story.

7. Safe Haven (2013)

Critics may say a lot of negative comments for this flick but I will still love it. Yes, the book is way better. (It is actually a regular phenomenon nowadays.) But I think Julianne and Josh deserves praise in their portrayals. Also, North Carolina’s beauty is just so awesome!

8. The Lucky One (2012)

A love story set under complicated circumstances, The Lucky One is a must watch flick. With the hot Zac Efron as your leading man, who would ever say no! 😁

DAY Four

Picture1

Again, 30 Day Book Challenge is beckysblogs‘ awesome idea!

Here’s the question for the challenge’s Day Four.

  1. Book turned into movie and completely desecrated.

Don’t judge the book by its movie.

I have come to conclude that this statement is really true.

The Fault in Our Stars

With the question for the day, I think The Fault in Our Stars movie version will be my answer. Honestly I am not really a Fault in our Stars fan but I like the book. Actually, I have shed some tears while I was reading the book. But when I saw the film, it just felt blank. The tugging lines of the book were there but I don’t know why it doesn’t affect me as much as the written edition.

Also, the tandem of Shailene (Hazel Grace) and Ansel (Augustus) is quite distracting for me because before this movie, they appeared as siblings, Caleb and Beatrice Prior, in Divergent movie. I had not seen any chemistry with the pair though Shailene was really a good actress.

Lastly, there are a lot of boring scenes in the movie that made me really want to fall asleep inside the cinema. (Though I can’t because those teen-agers kept on squealing once the camera focused of Ansel’s eyes and abs.)

Aside from this I have heard that If I Stay movie is another novel-turned-movie disappointment. I have not watched it yet but I have seen the trailer and it is full of kissing and cuddling that is just so inappropriate for Mia and Adam’s age. It also appears that their intimacy plays a big chunk in the movie which is not really a major part of the book version.

So I really think that you should always read a book first before its movie.
