Monday Movie XVI

Topic for this week is all about...

Reunions always brings back memories. While some may experience that it also brings back old flames or old enemies, others just laugh about their past. Here are my 5 flick picks for this week for this nice topic.

1. Grosse Pointe Blank (1997) - I simply love John Cusack. And him playing as an assassin is quite different from his regular next door guy roles. This films is, let's just say... a High School reunion gone bad.
2. Peggy Sue Got Married (1986) - They say 80's is an era of bad hair days and silly clothes. But Nicolas Cage musta thought he looked so cool back then. I wonder how he thinks about it now? Ha! But this movie is about a girl who finds herself trapped in her past. The "adventure" then makes up her mind at the end of who she really was and want.
3. Romy and Michele's High School Reunion (1997) - This is actually the first movie that came into my mind. It's simply funny and I love how the way they bashed the former bullies who turned out to be the "losers". So be careful kiddies on how you treat the "less popular" kids at school now. Who knows they will be the successful ones and you are not!
4. Bicentennial Man (1999) - Everything above has a mix or mostly comedy, but this one is a satire about how the future may turn out. And how mankind can be equal to his own creations. The reunion in this film is when Andrew, the robot, returns to his old masters' house and falls in love which made him determined to be as human as can be.
5. What Dreams May Come (1998) - This time, I saved the best for last. This is one of my fave movies of all time (added to a long list of others) but for those who haven't seen this yet, its highly recommend. And briefly I may say that in True Love, not even death can keep soulmates apart even if it takes going to Hell.
