THURSDAY TIPS: MOVIES
A dream is a wish your heart makes
I never had many feel-good movies as a child.
It sounds weird when thinking about it but I actually just occasionally watched whatever I could find among the Disney Classic collection I had or the Harry Potter movies (which I actually did not watch until I was about 12). And to be completely honest, I did not start enjoying movies as an aid to feel better or just having that movie that never fails to make me feel good, until about one or two years ago.
I remember first having this feeling when I watched How to be Single (2016). It is not your deepest movies, I know that. It's a lightweight feel-good movie about becoming independent. I like it. Something about it always makes me feel good.
A while ago, my movie-geek bestie Tsutsumi started obsessing over Audrey Hepburn. Of course, her timeless movies has always been on my to-watch-list, but I have never had the chance. So when Tsu started gushing about Roman Holiday (1953)and Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) during my holiday break, I had to watch them. And I kid you not, they are some of my all-time favourite movies. Miss Hepburn's acting makes me want to experience the Golden Age so much.

My boyfriend also helps introduce new movies to me. I watched Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) with him and that movie is so freaking strange; I love it. And while we are talking about strange and abstract movies; Amélie (2001). I have heard so much about this French-speaking movie, and I am completely obsessed with the soundtrack, so I thought I should give it a shot.
It did not disappoint.
That's it for my list of movies. Have you seen any of them?
