So here's the deal.
I often times joke ('cept I'm serious) about being anti-romantic. Public displays of affection and overall romantic cheesiness makes me cringe a bit. I rarely watch Rom-Com's, and when I do, I rarely like them.
Allow me to confess something. I'm also completely obsessed with an epic love story. I mean, EPIC.
Don't get me started on "The Vampire Diaries" and the Delena/Stelena controversy. Let's just say I was mad at yesterday's season finale. Like, yell at the T.V. screen and want to swear kind of mad.
And ya know, since this is a confessional, and we're talking about epic love stories, I'm going to strap on a pair and dare to tell you that I love Twilight. There, I said it. And ya know what? I love New Kids On The Block, too! AND I LISTEN TO BARRY MANILOW!!!
I am wondering if you'll still be friends with me, now.
(*tap tap* is this thing on?)
Okay, without further ado, and in no particular order, allow me to unveil some of my favorite EPIC (who's sick of that word being thrown around constantly?) love stories. Well, at least the ones I can remember for now. I know I'll hit "Publish" and then I'll go, "Sunuva! I forgot _________!"
I just must list this one first.
Um, hello there, Mr. Thornton.
North & South. Holy cow. I just finished this one up this week, and I pretty much can't get over the last 5 minutes of the movie. (I may have, um, watched the end over and over. . . )
Could this list be complete without Ms. Bennett and Mr. Darcy? I.THINK.NOT.
This version of Pride & Prejudice is my personal fave. It's a longie, but a goodie. Do you concur?
And since we're on the topic of Jane Austen right now,
um . . . I have always love-loved Alan Rickman as an actor, but Sense & Sensibility will make you fall head-over-heels for Snape.
And I'm not spoiling the ending if you haven't seen it, okay? But I have to say, that the end? Wow. And you know when she-who-must-not-be-named (so as not to spoil the ending) gets like, totally hysterical? You want to shake and her and yell "Get ahold of yourself, woman! You're making an A%$ of yourself!" and then slap her across the face like Mr. Green slaps Mrs. Peacock,
but secretly, you love that much emotion. Don't you?
Okay, taking the train back to the last 20 years.
Veronica & Logan. Need I say more?
Did you watch Veronica Mars? 'Cause it's kind of amazeballs. I want you to know, (and you have to be kind of a Veronica Mars diehard to get this) that I refer to anyone who's caught hanging up their phone while that person doing the calling is watching, as "pulling a Veronica".
Percy & Marguerite, hello! I love me some "Scarlet Pimpernel", and I kind of have a woman crush on Jane Seymour, since she's kind of perfect.
personifies this awesomely teasing movie:
Am I right?
Well gee, let me just go on and on, here!!
One more. Then I'm done. Pinky swear.
I am such a sucker for Jane Eyre. Like, allll two thousand of the Jane Eyre's that have been made. I like them all.
I think, though, that this one is my fave:
Toby Stephens as Mr. Rochester is kind of awesome.
Is the newest one good? Let me know.
So, that's my list, people. Did I leave something good out? I'm out of good shows to watch, so do me a favor and give me some good suggestions. Just remember: EPIC.
