I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window.

To quote Olive Penderghast in Easy A:
Whatever happened to chivalry? Does it only exist in 80's movies? I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air because he knows he got me. Just once I want my life to be like an 80's movie, preferably one with a really awesome musical number for no apparent reason. But no, no, John Hughes did not direct my life. 
 Ever since 'Must Love Dogs' was on tv a couple of days ago, I've been having a mini movie marathon with John Cusack movies. I have a huge weakness for him. You don't even know. I had never seen Say Anything (see picture above and below) before, but after watching it this morning it is now, hands down, one of my favorite movies.
Then we also got High Fidelity, Serendipity and Being John Malkovich. Just to name a few of my favorites. I have yet to watch The Raven, but I'm so scared it'll be a disappointment so I keep putting it off. But who am I even kidding? Just John Cusack playing Edgar Allan Poe is like a dream come true, no matter what the movie is like. I don't know what it is about that man..


  1. John Cusack is pretty great. I haven't seen very many things that he's been in though :(

  2. Sixteen Candles! Yes, I have wished that life would be like that movie :)

  3. @Anne Cobai I hadn't seen it before, but I just did and I'm all with you on that!!
