Five Flaming Hotties

FiveFlamingHottiesNew.pngIt’s time to go back to teenie days. To be shallow. Of course this post was bound to come up at some point. I mean, I’m human after all. Besides, Realweegiemidget and I always end up on a tangent around eye candy (you can find hers here). And..based on our interactions, she thinks she knows who my five flaming hotties are…little does she know…

In fact…this post may have some entries on it that may come as a bit of a shock surprise…I’m really opening myself up for judgement here..what am I doing????? Oh well…here goes anyway….

Just to be clear though…this is about HOTTIES and not favourites. It’s for us to be shallow and have a good gaze stare drool appreciation.

Well…here we go…the five stars (screen and I’ve taken the liberty of one musician and one sportsman) that feature on my hotties list…in no particular order..oops, wait…just to warn you…you may think I’m nuts (if you didn’t already) but we all have our moments:

Sizzling number 5: I’d seen him around a few times but was only really introduced to him in The Bourne Supremacy. I seem to be the one who never “falls” for the lead. He’s the only one I noticed despite his small-ish role. He’s just fine to look at. And has a cheeky, mischievous smile. What more should I say? Here’s Karl Urban:

Flaming 4: Let me say this…I support(ed) any team which has this goalie. Where were we introduced? Who knows? Some World Cup or other match. Not sure. Don’t really care. Just that in the crowd, of all the players, my eyes zoned into this one. As is the case with hotties…can’t say what the appeal is…it’s just there. May I introduce Diego Benaglio

Gorgeous 3: Here I’m allowing myself a woman who I think is absolutely beautiful and if I was a male, would deem her “hot”…

The first role I’d seen her in was Serendipity and her role, her screen presence came across as genuine and real which made her appearance even prettier. Then came Underworld…oh my…she’s just so stunning (and let’s face it, hot). I wish I could pull off leathers like she does. So, why do I like her…purely because of her looks and the roles she takes on. Kate Beckinsale

Oh gosh…I really need to think who I should put down…uhm, Fassben…no, Gregory Pe…uhm,  oh…Daniel Cr…no..here you go….

Hottie number 2: This is the one you didn’t see coming. There’s just something about this man. Oh swoon. I was even in the front of the concert…for those of you who know him, here’s my hottie Richard Z. Kruspe

I “met” him on the cover of a CD. Something just appealed. Not sure what and why. Then along came the live show DVDs (see, so, I’ll just say it is film in some form) and just like that I was a goner…there’s just something about him. His stage presence. The way he holds himself while playing that guitar. Don’t they say…there’s something about guitarists? Well, even if they don’t…I have something for guitarists.

Which makes the last hunk I can pick…whew…this is really hard…but let me go with the man I’ve always liked to watch since my teenage days. He was my crush since I spotted him in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves and to this day I have a soft spot for him. His voice…there’s a gruff softness, his looks, and despite his wild past (supposedly) he still comes across as nice. Of course it is…Christian Slater

Hmmm…I seem to have a trend going looking at it. I would have added Shane West to the mix too…if I was going for an all-male lineup…

Tissues and Tears with a Walk to Remember

What list of tearjerker movies would be complete without a Nicholas Sparks adaptation? OK, OK…give me a chance here…I know not everyone likes the multitude of books-turned-movies….however, I must admit there are some that aren’t bad. But, there is only one that I really find good, very good…and one that has me watching through tears every single time. A Walk to Remember (2002).

The story seems very cliché…bad boy falls in love with good girl…but so what? It’s the emotional experience that counts. The fact that you end up caring so much for these two characters that  you cry! And, for the readers amongst you, the book achieves the same…I remember reading from beginning to end one night and going to bed in the early hours of the morning with bloodshot eyes from crying. I barely managed to see the last few chapters so teary-eyed was I. Three guesses as to what I looked like the next morning…

The story is very simple yet sweet. Due to some silly teenage initiation/prank gone wrong, Landon Carter (Shane West), the school’s bad boy and cool dude is forced to join the drama club, give extra lessons and other community services rather than get expelled from the school. Jamie Sullivan (Mandy Moore), the school’s good girl who doesn’t care that she gets teased, is voluntarily and happily part of these extra-curricular activities. Through these circumstances, Landon is forced to set aside his pride (or arrogance) and interact with Jamie. Gradually, his preconceived ideas and perceptions of her start changing and he becomes a more likeable guy by being around a positive influence. Of course our two characters are jinxed when she says “You have to promise you won’t fall in love with me” when Landon asks her for help. His arrogant reply is “That’s not a problem”…but need I go further with this? Of course they will! And how lovely their love is. It is so tender and sweet. Genuine. Heart-breaking. Beautiful. True. I get all emotional just thinking of some of the beautiful scenes and dialogue they share. My favourite being one where he is there to “catch” her as his former cool friends play a nasty joke on her.

These two people are perfect for each other. Each one having a profound and everlasting effect on the other, present and future.

So, if you want a good cry…put your judgement of Nicholas Sparks adaptions away and give this one a go.
