Summer Movie Speed Date....(Destination Always Be My Fatal Keanu Con)

And we're back! Justin and Paula return to the glorious world of recounting romance with a summer speed date featuring hits such as Destination Wedding and Always Be My Maybe. With Godzilla presiding as timekeeper, the movies of our summer fly by and, honestly, we are ok with that. While upon initial watch these movies hold our attention, we think we are probably going to ghost all of them on date two--well, all except for Keanu Reeves.

Summer Movie Speed Date....(Destination Always Be My Fatal Keanu Con)

The Boy Next Door...(First Edition!)

How many doors must a boy live down before you can call him a man? Based on this title, more than one! Not to be confused with all those other books and films based around young males living in close proximity, Justin and Paula explore Jennifer Lopez's finest (only?..) erotic thriller "The Boy Next Door". Newly separated J.Lo can't keep herself from lusting after the seemingly well-rounded neighbor hunk, but does he have a dark past? Who cares!? Seriously Jenny he's a 20 year old full-time high school student, you can do better!

The Boy Next Door...(First Edition!)

Basic Instinct...(Everybody's Doing It)

Paula and Justin watch Basic Instinct, which is basically a film noir version of a softcore porn or is it the other way around? Michael Douglas is back as a cop who falls for the wrong women and Sharon Stone steals all the scenes in her breakthrough role as a sexualized psychopathic author. This movie is full of cliche, but you know you are watching it for the interrogation scene, so just deal with it.

Basic Instinct...(Everybody's Doing It)

Fatal Attraction...(New York Bunny Boil)

Paula and Justin watch Fatal Attraction, the film that made adultery seem way less fun than before. Glenn Close embodies Alex, an associate publisher who has an obvious undiagnosed mental health issue that causes her to obsess over Michael Douglas --Michael Douglas! The 80's were a weird time. Unfortunately the end of this film takes a hard turn toward psychopath, eroding our sympathy for the female antagonist while creating a happily ever after for the philanderer male protagonist. Go figure.

Fatal Attraction...(New York Bunny Boil)

Cold Mountain...(Stick it in the Corn Pone)

Paula and Justin watch Cold Mountain, the Odyssean light epic love story set in the hills of western North Cackalacky. Jude Law and Nicole Kidman become hardened, resilient bad asses over the course of 2.5 hours. So much so that when they meet, they immediately take the bone train to pound town. If ten minutes of shared screen time doesn't scream romance, what does?

Cold Mountain...(Stick it in the Corn Pone)

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button...(Some People Age Backward)

Paula and Justin watch The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, a story about a man born old who ages backward while experiencing all life has to offer, including romance! Benjamin Button is dark and somber at times and while the plot is meant to convey deep meaning, the dialogue can feel a bit shallow. And if we are talking about shallow, we can't forget the relationship featured in the film. It's truly removed - some would say, emotionless. But hey, we learned something from this, right?

Dr Zhivago...(Ice, Ice...Baby)

Paula and Justin watch Dr. Zhivago, an EPIC romance set in Russia between WW1 and the Russian Revolution. This film shows us things can get hot in even the most desolate tundras and that all good poets need their muse. At the time this film was released, no one thought anyone would sit through a three and a half hour love story that spends an hour focused on boiling potatoes in a train car. They were so wrong.

While You Were Sleeping...(Coma Guy)

Paula and Justin watch While You Were Sleeping, a charming mid 1990's rom-com about love and comas. Sandra Bullock is at her most adorable here as Lucy, a lonely CTA employee looking for love and family. A fun cast of quirky supporting characters, quippy dialogue, and the super duo of Bullock and Bill Pullman make this a rom-com well worth renting. It's a cure for your January blues and a good way to start your new year's resolution of watching better movies.

While You Were Sleeping...(Coma Guy)

White Christmas...(A Salute to All Things White)

Paula and Justin watch White Christmas, Irving Berlin's classic holiday song and dance fest featuring Bing Crosby and his iconic titular song. This film is pure 1950's schmaltz and tells the story of the post war showmanship of its two leading men, a duo who ultimately becomes a quartet when they meet the sister act of their dreams. But can they save their former general, now failing innkeeper? Of course they f*cking can.

A Christmas Prince...(Royally Humdrum)

Paula and Justin watch the acclaimed Netflix hit, A Christmas Prince. Christmas Prince tells the charming story of how one reporter scored the story of the lifetime by impersonating a tutor and recording interactions with, and ultimately uncovering the shady birth-backstory of Prince Richard of Blandania - also known as Prince Richard of Caucasia. But in all seriousness, 53 Netflix subscribers watched this film every day for 18 days, suggesting that we are probably nearing the end of human civilization faster than we thought.
