MovieReview- Accepted (2006)

Yeaaah so this movie IS ancient, and I hadn’t seen it til some time around a week and a half ago. What can I say, I’m not that big on watching movies. I’m usually out of it, and out of watching them. Oh well.

But I love this movie. It’s hilarious, random, awesome, and all tied together.  Inspiring and oddly comforting. After living my entire life having been stared at like a retard for not knowing the answer to “What do you want to do when you grow up?” or even what I want to do with my life, it’s great to think that there is at least ONE country doesn’t require you to have you’re entire future planned out or even a clue as to what to do with your time, let alone the remainder of your life. This movie’s brilliant, and it’s just an amazing look into the whole pressure of applying and getting into colleges and uni that has yet to come for me….but is just around the corner *gulp* Although this particular movie kind of skips that terrible step in the process of growing up.

Buuut forget that serious stuff, look forward to laughing at the funny and brilliant classes and courses offered by the South Hamron Institute of Technology. Yup, that is SHIT.

And while at it, might as well check out their rugby team, The SHIThead Sandwiches, and the mascot that goes along with it all.

My favourite character is the kid with ADHD as far as I can recall. The dude always dressed in a suit, all hyper and acting like a mental patient. That’s the one.

This movie makes it into my TimelessMovies list. And there aren’t that many movies there. There’s just one other since I’ve been compiling an ACTUAL list. It’s got Night at the Museum of course, but that’s all for now. I haven’t exactly added Animated Films to this list just because I’m going to dedicate them a whole other list. I know THAT one’s going to be veryyyyy long and consisting of a looooot of Disney…and Pixar, cuz Cars, and Toy Story, duh. Oh, and some Dream Works too. Who could forget stuff like Shrek.

Woah, woah, I’m going off track here. But what else is new…

So right, what’s this movie about? Well…

THere’s this boy, Something that starts with a B Gaines, and he doesn’t get into ANY of the unis he applies to. None what so ever. Not even his safe school. Or the safe safe school…His parents make it a big deal, how you need to go to university for, well, a life worth living. A marriage, a family, a house, a job, it’s all tied to higher education according to his parents. (I’m not disagreeing or agreeing. Hush hush.) In the end, with all the pressure, and his parents regarding him as a failure, he decides, simply, to reject rejection. In an angry rage, he scans a rejection letter from Hamron University, and forges an acceptance letter from the South Hamron Institute of Technology. He changes the logo from a red shield and a caps H to a blue one. And viola, he’s good to mail it off to his parents! In a drastic turn of events, he ends up getting even a campus for this SHIT uni. All to pull off the fraud. And that’s when some real SHIT goes down…since students actually show up at this supposed institute! (The reasoning they show up is muuuch more legit than how random it sounds in this description…but I’m trying to be vague so as not to steal details from the actual movie, and hence create a summary full of loads of spoilers.) So what now, Gaines? You’ve got a university full of students willing to learn, willing to pay their tuition fees, and yet it’s not a real university. So what happens now, once you’ve been -accepted- ?

*poof*

My Degree of One Direction Infection

I am a Directioneer. Not a directioner. i mean, i just LOVE the bands music, but that doesnt mean ive got to fangirl over the guys who made that music. but here, its either you like jacob/edward, or bieber/one direction. so pick. NOW. that is what most girls demand from you before asking for your name. welll, for the first one the answer is obviously Percy Jackson. and the second is One Direction. but to what extent..?

Ok, i admit that zayn malik has looks. but i just dont like his looks, its just my personal preference. but saying that here might start  the zombie fangirl apocalypse.  (but i actually hate that stupid looking weird bleached blonde streak thing in his hair.)  i like niall, and his supposed personality (i say supposed cuz i pretty evidently dont know it first hand) seems very awesome, he loves nandos (as do i), might just eat as much as me (hey, its possible), and is Irish. Now, thats a lotta awesome right there. and i think he looks a bit cute too, but not in a drool over him way, just a you-took-a-glance-at-his-photo-and-said-‘oh-hes-cute’ kinda cute. Liam, seems sweet, shy, and the only seriously ‘good’ guy through and through in this band. seriously, i found this picture on fb saying ‘Where would One Direction be without Liam? In Jail’ and i think it could very well be true =) but ive never really given such importance to liam really, but just cuz i kind of lack an opinion of him…

Harry and Louis left! i think Harry looks hot, especially in the pictures these guys take. but Louis is still my favorite. sometimes he looks hot, but mostly he just looks suuuuper CUTE. i love these two ❤ and i find it cute and funny when they joke around as a friendly couple, loving each other so much (even though its not the least bit gay) on their video diaries, music videos, instagram and tumblr photos, etc. i just love all zat.

i think the video diaries are also super hilarious and awesome. its like during the X factor, and it was great. they seemed like actual normal guys just chilling on a pair of stairs. Louis dressed up as superman, their awesome hoods- oh ma gosh, their awesome hoods. i want a hood like zat! *____* they were regular, zip-up hoods, its just that the zipper extends to the absolute tippity tip of the hood, so you  could  zip up your head inside too. i dont know why, really, but i want a hood like zat. i could approach random people and be like ‘nom nom nom, im the cookie monsterrrr!’ or ‘BOO!’ or ‘hey, do you  know where the Adam’s Family resides?’ etc. it would be fun…

now the last thing, is that my liking one direction actually gives most of my peers the slight hope that im growing up. when i was in 5th grade i was super anti-harry potter. when i was in 6th grade, i despised twilight and BOTH edward and jacob. and when it came to boy bands, i hated almost all of them and barely knew about any celebrities at all (i dont really watch regular unanimated movies =P ). in the end, i also loathed bieber. so finally, when i started liking one direction and actually saying that i not only find some of the guys cute but one ‘hot’ its like i can hear them think, ‘pheeewww, shes finally growing up!’ or ‘now we know shes a normal teenage girl’ or ‘Shes seen the light!’ =)

And cuz its like one of the few overlapping usually mutual likes most girls start talking about it with other girls they dont really know and then they end up squealing about which guy they like from those five, and before you know it, theyre fangirling over them. and if im there, i can usually fake the fangirling, or tolerate it (theirs and mine). so i seem even more normal and easy to get a long with =) what can i say, being the co-president of the Dramatists (the dramatic fascists, nah, im kidding, haha, its actually just the Drama Society), i can be one hell of an actress 😉 and i know it =P

Lastly, i love one direction’s songs (most of them, not all of them, mind you). and i like one direction, and i dont have much of an issue passing that like off as love =P even though its not really… i dont like bieber or his music, but i do admit that i like one of his songs (as long as  you love me). but i do love Louis =D and yeaaah, i never feel the urge to fangirl when talking about these guys, not really. it is i, ze Directioneer B) when being a Directioner is too mainstream. haha, jk, no, thats just lame =P

In my teenagery defense, i do happen to like Vampire Diaries too (love Damon-read the books) and i really like Pretty Little Liars too so ha. in your face. but whatever, the thing here is done and dealt with so…

Frosty Out!

Ooooh, loook, it’s KEVIN~!
