I'm bored, it's Valentine's and I ate all the chocolate I bought while watching Sex and the City, so it's time for a Top 5 something...
1. Carrie and Mr. Big (Sex and the City)
2. Dracula and Mina (Bram Stoker's Dracula 1992 version)
3. Anne Elliot and Captain Wentworth (Persuasion)
4. Sally Owens and Gary Hallet (Practical Magic)
5. Beauty and the Beast (Disney)
Yeah, Beauty and the Beast. They are my favourite Disney couple. Actually, none of these "couples" should be of any surprise to anyone who's been reading me for any amount of time.
Dracula and Mina...everyone who's ever seen the 1992 Gary Oldman version knows what I mean. The scene where they are alone and she drinks his blood...shivers, complete shivers. Or when they are in the cinema house and the wolf gets loose...I remember sitting in the crowded cinema opening night here in town and the collective sigh from every female in the building...
Sally Owens and Gary Hallet...come one, who doesn't love the idea of soulmates who find each other after twenty years of waiting and living through crap, all because the ultimate love spell brought them together. It doesn't get much better then that.
Anne Elliot and Captain Wentworth...a second chance at first love. Deep sigh here. Two people forced apart by their families, only to stumble upon each other over a decade later and find they never stopped thinking of each other.
Carrie and Mr. Big...every woman can find something to identify with in that on again off again crazy making stylish romance. The push pull of confusion and pride mixed with the delicate cocktail of desire and a slight dash of jealous lover. Dude! Who could deny that stir crazy star crossed gaze Big always gives Carrie from across the room or car?
Okay so that's enough for now...till later
