Watch 30 movies

So far, I've watched two new movies! :) 1. Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist Wikipedia gist: Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist is a 2008 romantic comedy film directed by Peter Sollett and starring Michael Cera and Kat Dennings. Written by Lorene Scafaria and based on the novel of the same name by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan, the story tells of teenagers Nick (Cera) and Norah (Dennings), who meet when Norah asks Nick to pretend to be her boyfriend for five minutes. Over the course of the night, together they try to find their favorite band's secret show and search for Norah's drunken best friend. What I love about it: I like the musical score of the movie - it was sort of casual romantic. Reminds you of young, crazy love - midnight escapades, drunken nights, etc.
2. Vanity Fair Wikipedia gist: Vanity Fair is a 2004 British-American costume drama film directed by Mira Nair and adapted from William Makepeace Thackeray's novel of the same name. The novel has been the subject of numerous television and film adaptations, and Nair's version made notable changes in the development of main character Becky Sharp. The film was nominated for "Golden Lion" Award in 2004 Venice Film Festival. What I love about it: I have always loved period films like this, it transforms me into another world. I like Reese Witherspoon's character - feisty, ambitious, talented, and gorgeous. The story was intriguing and interesting even though there were boring scenes.
