Movie Madness Monday 14

Welcome back.  This is a weekly meme where bloggers can share their thoughts on movies.  Any movie review is welcome including, new releases, old favorites or new found favorites.

What I am Reviewing:

Don Jon

I saw this movie opening weekend and really needed some time to digest it before I wrote about it. This doesn't mean that I hated the movie, in fact I loved the movie.  I just needed time to gather my thoughts before I wrote a review.

The plot is fairly simple, we meet a guy who has priorities in life one being his p*rn habit.  Funny enough, he does well with the ladies but just has a better experience with his computer versus the real thing.  While out with the "boys" he meets a girl he considers to be smokin' hot.  They don't fall madly in love at first sight but he does track her down and starts a relationship.

While our boy is busy trying to hide his habit from his girl, Barbara, she is fascinated with sappy movies. I don't want to give anything away but Jon's experience in this relationship begins to change his viewpoints on love, sex and media.

And after watching it, I too had to question my vice of trashy romance novels.  I have been reading them since I could sneak them out of my Great Grandmothers closet when i was 13.  Couple those with the crap on TV and movie and I wonder if I have a skewed sense of what a real relationship should look like.

While I still enjoy a good love story, I think there is more than the meet cute, the fight and make up.  Now to apply that to my own love life.
