My thoughts on Drew Barrymore

I used to think that I hated Drew Barrymore because of Charlie’s Angels,  her stupid palsy face, and for doing stuff like this:

I still kind of hate her, but after having a recent discussion with my friends, I’ve come to the startling realization that I may like Drew Barrymore. I know, it makes me cringe too, but let me explain:

  1. I loved “Ever After.” It’s a beautiful dream-like movie that I used to watch over and over when I was younger.
  2. I may be the only person in world who actually watched, let alone liked the movie “Never Been Kissed.”
  3. I absolutely love “The Wedding Singer.” It is one of my favorite pseudo ’80s movies of all time. It’s one of those movies that, if it’s on, I’ll drop everything to watch.
  4. “Donnie Darko”
  5. “Whip It” was actually not that bad either. If you can get over the awfulness of Ellen Page (which some people can’t) it’s worth it. Maybe I just liked it because of the roller derby factor, who knows?

In any account, I felt it was necessary to share my feelings on the subject.

 

Derby Memories

Going to see “Whip It” last night was really exciting for me because it brought back a lot of memories of when I was on the Space Coast Slashers back in 2007. I had so much fun skating with those girls, and I fully plan to join again when I move back to Florida this summer. Here are a few pictures:
