Weekend Rewind

Today, I’m posting something I wrote in June 2008. I called it “These things are true” then, but it’s this week’s Weekend in Rewind.

After watching Reservation Road with Mindy this weekend—and discovering that prescription anti-anxiety drugs may be necessary to get through that movie—I thought it would be nice to write a post about the truths I’ve learned from the movies. So, enjoy!

1. It’s never too late to talk to your dad. (Or play catch. Or go on a road trip involving really good music.)
Field of Dreams and Elizabethtown

2. Sometimes your first impressions are so, so wrong.
Pride and Prejudice

3. It’s possible to not know that you’re falling in love.
Where the Heart Is

4. The people who really love you still love you when you’re a total jerk.
Walk the Line

5. The time for truth-telling probably isn’t moments before you think you’re going to die.
Almost Famous

6. Things aren’t always what you think they are.
Any movie by M. Night Shyamalan

7. You can change.
About a Boy

8. The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return. (OK, so that’s a direct quote from Moulin Rouge and I’m not quite sure I believe it and I really don’t think Ewan McGregor’s character would agree since his love really kicked him in the gut. . . .but I like the quote.)

9. Sometimes the little guys do prevail.
Hoosiers (and LOTR, if you count the hobbits! Tricksy hobbitses.—Imagine that in my creepy Gollum voice)

10. People think they know you and understand every little thing about you, but most of the time, they know their idea of you.

11. Sometimes, it is too late.
Gone with the Wind but thankfully not in An Affair to Remember

12. There is more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good-looking.

13. Your stapler is a vital component of your office.
Office Space
(That’s a gift for you, Mindy!)

  1. I love About a Boy – and we watched Office Space the other night. I laughed a lot, but the rest of the fam thought I was slightly goofy. Which is normal. But, oh well. I enjoyed the movie! 🙂
