Chag and the Movies

Last month was my anti-love month. But lately, I was able to move on and turn upside down as I've gotten myself indulged on watching romantic movies. Reason why? I love being carried away. LOL.

And finding myself being carried away all the time by these romantic movies, I've decided to list down these movies which lines got me swept off my feet. And how is this related to the
Chag People? Let me tell you how and to whom I relate the quotes I've listed down.

Let's begin from here.

10. Love and Other Drugs

"Sometimes the things you want the most don't happen and what you least expect happens. I don't know - you meet thousands of people and none of them really touch you. And then you meet that one person and your life is changed. I've never known anyone who actually believe that I was enough until I met you. And then you made me believe it too. " - Jamie Randall, Love and other drugs (2010)

This relates to: Rochelle

Rochelle's personality when it comes to love is that she tends to be addicted to this one person whom she wants to be with. She may elope with him and do adventurous things and she would be brave enough to risk things to keep the relationship work. In search for love, she opens out herself to all of the fishes in the sea. But as I see from the future, no matter how many choices there is, there will be this one person who will definitely take her breath away and it'll come in a time when she least expect it.

9. The Proposal

"Three days ago, I loathed you. I used to dream about you getting hit by a cab. Then we had our little adventure up in Alaska and things started to changed. Things changed when we kissed. And when you told me about your tattoo. Even when you checked me out when we were naked. But I didn't realize any of this, until I was standing alone... in a barn... wifeless. Now, you could imagine my disappointment when it suddenly dawned on me that the woman I love is about to be kicked out of the country. So Margaret, marry me, because I'd like to date you." Andrew Paxton, The Proposal (2009)

This relates to: Charisse

Charisse used to be this one person who has a great defense mechanism against love. But it came to her in no time that all her beliefs were replaced with the possibility of a happy ever after by being with someone and loving him. Of all the high expectations from other people, she chose to live a life as how she see it righteous for her and stood up against her decision. She is now happily married to her husband and is now a mother of her own baby girl.

8. My Amnesia Girl

"Ipikit mo ang mga mata mo. Kasi sabi nila, kapag nakapikit ka, dun mo malalaman ang totoo mong nararamdaman. Kung pwede lang mawala lahat ng kasalan sa pamamagitan ng yakap, habang buhay kitang yayakapin." - Apollo, My Amnesia Girl (2010)

This relates to: Roselyn

Roselyn fell in love to a guy from the past whom they both never had the chance to express their feelings to each other. Years after, they met again. Despite of wanting to pursue what has not been yet fulfilled relationship, chances and fate always takes away this opportunity. She then chose to engage into relationships that will make her happy and satisfied. And no matter how much pain and hurtful things are, she chose to accept what is given to her at this time. And all she could do is hold on to the man she loves, hug and kiss him as if tomorrow will no longer be a forever after.

7. Titanic

“Winning that ticket, Rose, was the best thing that ever happened to me. It brought me to you. You must do me this honor, Rose. Promise me you’ll survive. That you won’t give up, no matter what happens, no matter how hopeless. Promise me now, Rose, and never let go of that promise.” - Jack Dawson, Titanic (1997)

This relates to: Michael

All of his life, Michael had focused on achieving things and fulfilling his goals in life. But of all the success and rewarding career he's got today, he also chose to let go a girl whom he had always loved even while coming across the borders of different countries. For now, even looking from a far, he still wishes her all the happiness in life.

6. Brokeback Mountain

"Tell you what, we coulda had a good life together! Fuckin' real good life! Had us a place of our own. But you didn't want it, Ennis! So what we got now is Brokeback Mountain! Everything's built on that! That's all we got, boy, fuckin' all. So I hope you know that, even if you don't never know the rest! You count the damn few times we have been together in nearly twenty years and you measure the short fucking leash you keep me on - and then you ask me about Mexico and tell me you'll kill me for needing somethin' I don't hardly never get. You have no idea how bad it gets! I'm not you. I can't make it on a coupla high-altitude fucks once or twice a year! You are too much for me Ennis, you sonofawhoreson bitch! I wish I knew how to quit you." - Jack Twist, Brokeback Mountain (2005)

This relates to: Jeanal

When Jeanal falls in love, she tends to do the stupidest things a girl could ever do even though she perfectly knows how great the consequences are. This movie relates to her as if she is Jack Twist wanting to quit Ennis but cannot do so. She's trying her hardest to find another way to quit this guy, but unfortunately, she just can't stop and still continues to see them. And God knows when she will ever get to learn.

5. 50 First Dates

"You erased me from your memories because you thought you were holding me back from having a full and happy life. But you made a mistake. Being with you is the only way I could have a full and happy life. You're the girl of my dreams. And apparently, I'm the man of yours." - Henry Roth, 50 First Dates (2004)

This relates to: Joseph

The movie doesn't exactly relate to Joseph as this will be totally farfetched to how he would ever love a girl. I could say that the only reason to relate this movie to him is because he somehow resembled to Adam Sandler's personality as Henry Roth in this movie: He is the ladies' man and quitting on girls would be as simple as jumping out on the water and pretend to be a secret agent, then never show up to her again. As to falling in love for real? God also knows when.

4. One More Chance

"I want my heart to stop breaking, sana pag naging tayo na ulit, kaya na kitang mahalin ng buong buo. na walang halong takot kung masaktan man tayo ulit."- Popoy, One more Chance (2007)

This relates to: Kristine

This movie entirely relates to how wonderful Kristine's love story is. Every line, every aspect, and every character seemed to be a depiction of the real people in her life. But this movie only relates to her with one person whom she fell in love way back in college and then met again to be together today just like how John Lloyd returned from Qatar to get back to Bea Alonzo after 2 years. But on her part, he returned to her after 6 years.

3. City of Angels

"I would rather have had one breath of her hair, one kiss from her mouth, one touch of her hand, than eternity without it."- Seth, City of Angels (1998).

This relates to: Cacy

Cacy now lives a happy life with the new phase of his life as a future husband and father. But looking back, he used to fall in love to people who always ignored his efforts and feelings as if he was just a wall to be passed on. The movie relates to his previous personality as he used to have dreams of being with certain people he liked but he never had the chance to express how sincere he had been.

2. If Only

"I have to tell you this and you need to hear it. I loved you since I met you, but I wouldn't allow myself to truly feel it until today. I was always thinking ahead, making decisions soaked with fear. Today, because of you - what I learned from you; every choice I made was different and my life has completely changed. And I've learned that if you do that, then you're living your life fully. It doesn't matter if you have five minutes or fifty years. Samantha if not for today, if not for you, I would never have known love at all. So thank you for being the person who taught me to love, and to be love." - Ian Wyndham, If Only (2004)

This relates to: Art

Art had never had a girlfriend from his younger years until he went to college and met a wonderful girl whom he never realized would taught him how great it is to fall in love. The movie relates to him being an ideal type of person: well mannered, smart, funny and has a stable family background just like Ian Wyndham. But beyond that is a girl whom he learned the appreciation of love.

1. The Notebook

"Well that's what we do, we fight. You tell me when I am being an arrogant son of a bitch and I tell you when you are a pain in the ass. Which you are, 99% of the time. I'm not afraid to hurt your feelings. You have like a 2 second rebound rate, then you're back doing the next pain-in-the-ass thing. So it's not gonna be easy. It's gonna be really hard. We're gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, for ever, you and me, every day. Will you do something for me, please? Just picture your life for me? 30 years from now, 40 years from now? What's it look like? If it's with him, go. Go! I lost you once, I think I can do it again. If I thought that's what you really wanted. But don't you take the easy way out." Noah Calhun, The Notebook (2004)

This relates to: Majoh

This movie relates a lot to Majoh's previous relationship as how Allie and Noah depicted a young love-hate relationship when they were younger. All the fighting, drama and violence were a bit similar along with the 2-minutes-after make out one the fight is over. But aside from that, the movie relates to Majoh as to how a relationship will work out for her: that no matter how bad she could be, the guy she loves would stand up for her because he loves her and he will never turn his back on her no matter what happens.


But above all the relationship of the Chag pipz to the movies listed above, the reason why I wanted to post this list is because I love collecting the movie quotes and reading it over and over again.

If you're in love, out of love or wanting to be in love, try to read at least one of the quotes. It'll sure feed an emotional need for the day.
