feeling nostalgic!

I just finished watching 'The Princess Bride'. Here's a synopsis that I copied from IMDB since I'm way too lazy to write one myself.

"A kindly grandfather sits down with his grandson and reads him a bedtime story. The story is one that has been passed down through from father to son for generations. As the grandfather reads the story, the action comes alive. The story is a classic tale of love and adventure as the beautiful Buttercup is kidnapped and held against her will in order to marry the odious Prince Humperdinck, and Westley (her childhood beau, now returned as the Dread Pirate Roberts) attempts to save her. On the way he meets an accomplished swordsman and a huge, super strong giant, both of whom become his companions in his quest. They meet a few bad guys along the way to rescue Buttercup."

This is supposed to be an old movie. So it's a classic comedy. I find it funny at times,but mostly it's boring. The scene with the grandfather and the grandson at the end was sweet though,when he said "As you wish." Watch the movie to know what it means. :) But I don't recommend you to watch it more than once,i'm not sure if it's the lack of oxygen to my brain or if the movie was truly boring that I felt sleepy. I did munch on food for a while,it's supposed to make me less sleepy. I guess it didnt help. Oh well,it is five in the morning. I wonder if that's why I'm sleepy. :P

I feel nostalgic. I'm remembering all the movies I watched when I was younger. To list some :

1. Now and Then.
2. 3 Ninjas (All three movies)
3. Harriet The Spy.
4. The Little Women
The Secret Garden.
6. The Little Princess.
7. Mathilda.
Mary Poppins.
9. Casper.
10. Model Behavior.
11. Clueless.
12. She's All That.
13. Switching Goals.
14. It Takes Two.
15. The Adam's Family.
16. Home Alone (all of the movies)
17. Broke Down Palace.
18. Christmas Everyday.
19. Brink!
20. So weird (tv series)
21. I cant believe I forgot this! Haha. Flash forward!
22. Richie Rich.

That's some I guess. Haha. You might laugh,but these movies really interest me when I was younger. I was very close with my cousins at the time. I have 2 elder brothers and my cousins had a brother the same age as mine. So we'd trade places. Aizat comes to Kluang and stay for a while,and I took his place in KL. We'd watch those movies and act out scenes from the movies. Like the scene where Harriet and her classmates were playing in the park,and they keep running into each other. Each time they run into each other they'd throw the books they're holding high in the air. So we did that. Haha. We used to love riding on our bikes. Im not sure if it's from Now and Then,but we loved that movie. Even better when there's 4 of us. :D I used to love Roberta. She's the most tomboyish and I really think Christina Ricci is cute. Or maybe back then she was my fav because I'm a bit tomboyish.

Who can forget the three ninjas! Rocky,Colt and Tumtum. Haha. Casper is a classic! I love watching Casper cartoons. God. This is making me feel like a kid again. :P Not too much. Last week,The Little Princess is shown in HBO i think. I wanted to see it,but didnt get the chance. It's really nice. Harriet The Spy was also shown in TV i think. If you prefer reading,then The Little Princess,The Secret Garden and The Little Women are based on books. I have them,but cant remember where I put it. I shall look for them! Haha. I feel like some nostalgic reading. :) Christopher Pike's.. He intrigues me with his stories. Yes,they're fictions but I loved it nonetheless. There was one about Greek. It was really well plotted. Most of his books are. Then those Wiccan books. I was into those things too. I had two friends who was interested in them too. Haha. :D I was considered a freak. Oh well.

And who could forget Julie Andrews? You might know her from The Princess Diaries,but I love her in Mary Poppins. It's truly a classic that is worth watching. If you've seen The Nanny Diaries or Nanny McPhee. The part where they come flying with an umbrella in hand. Well,that's from Mary Poppins. Until now I can remember the word 'Supercalifragilisticexpealidocious'. Hahaha. I cant believe I can spell it. If anyone who's reading is puzzled and curious as to what it means,then dont bother. It doesnt really mean anything. As Disney puts it,it means 'a nonsense word meaning fantastic'. Oh well. I still love it though. And Scarlett Jo said it in The Nanny Diaries,when the boy told her the longest word. To me it was hilarious since I know it's not really a word. :P

Becca and Tucker from Flash Forward! You know the Burn Book from Mean Girls? There was already one from Flash Forward. I saw one episode once,for old time sake. It was the finale of the series. That's the only episode I can find online. Oh well. That's where I saw Ryan Gosling when he was younger,before he acted in Hercules. And then catapulted to fame in The Notebook. :P He's way older in that movie. Flash Forward is all about childhood friends and school life. It was the only thing that mattered back then. My childhood friends are my cousins,and we're still tight now. So yeay. :D

And not forgetting the TV Series such as Popular,Roswell,Dawson's Creek,Gilmore Girls etc. This post makes me see that,I watch too much TV when I was younger. HAHA.

Im tired. *yawn*

Later people.

P/S : I'm sure there are many typos,so forgive me.
