Valentine's Night In

So we meet again. I swam through a sea of chocolate, balloons, and roses to reach my computer to write this blog. It's Ashton here, it's Valentine's Day, and we're going to talk about movies. 

Movies are great, no matter the holiday or the day of the week or the hour of the day. Today's the day all about love and candy and we felt like you may be in need of some good movie recommendations. Don't worry friends, the Choctawk staff's got you.

Katie- Dirty Dancing

"It was the summer of 1963, when everybody called me Baby and it didn't occur to me to mind. It was before Kennedy got shot, before The Beatles, when I wanted to join the Peace Corps and I didn't think I'd ever find a guy as great as my dad."

Liz- You've Got Mail

"I wanted it to be you. I wanted it to be you so badly." 

Hannah- The Proposal 

Shardae- 10 Things I Hate About You / Can't Buy Me Love

"I mean, he went from totally geek, to totally chic!"

Ashton (Me)- Crazy, Stupid, Love / An Affair to Remember 


"I'm so mad at you. I'm really mad at you for what you did. But I'm mad at myself too. Because I should not have jumped out of that car - I should have fought for you. Because you fight for your soul mates."

"The Empire State Building is the closest thing to heaven in this city."

Callie- Valentine's Day / She's All That

"Sometimes when you open up to people, you let the bad in with the good."

Luke- Holiday Inn 

Hannah- Endless Love / She's the Man


"I'm here for your bro, I've got a lifetime of knowledge."

Cole- The Notebook

"If you're a bird, I'm a bird."

Asa- Princess Diaries

"You know, most kids hope for a car for their 16th birthday, not a country!"

Parker- Shrek

Charlton- The Count of Monte Cristo 

"Life is a storm, my young friend. You will bask in the sunlight one moment, be shattered on the rocks the next. What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes. You must look into that storm and shout as you did in Rome. Do your worst, for I will do mine! Then the fates will know you as we know you: as Albert Mondego, the man!"

Hayley- The Princess Bride

"As you wish."

Andrew Steven Wilson- Groundhogs Day

Grab your popcorn and a brownie pan, you can make the cheesy movies good for a weekend.

If you didn't catch it-- that was a Taylor Swift reference. Happy Valentine's Day, readers. Listen to Taylor Swift and eat chocolate and be happy because you deserve to be. 

Also, consider this the sign that you SHOULD buy that oversized teddybear from Kroger.

Keep on keepin' on,

Ashton "I not-so-secretly love Taylor Swift" Ray
