I have always been a movie buff. Why? Because movies are always capable of making me feel so many different intense emotions at any given time. And while they may not all be great enough to elicit a breathless "wow" from me at the end, there are quite a few that do. I don't exactly remember when my love for movies started, but I can trace it all back to the movie the first movie that made me want to fall in love: Aladdin.
As a child - when my sister was scampering around pretending to be Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty (and sometimes a combination of both) - I never fully understood why anyone would want to be a Disney princess... until Aladdin came along, that is.
See, I was never a girly girl. I was never the kind of girl who fantasised about being rescued by a prince in a dark tower, either. In fact, I was more interested in the life of Maleficent and why she became such a bitter villain than I was in Princess Aurora herself. So, when Princess Jasmine came into my life, my entire being changed.
Princess Jasmine was so unlike any other Disney princess that had been introduced to the world at the time - she was AWESOME. She made me feel like there was hope for non girly girls to have a happy ending, even if they were bitchy and stubborn and spoiled.
And for the first time in my life, I fell in love with a fictional character in terms of personality, beliefs and appearance: Aladdin. It isn't until later that I found out he was actually modelled after my ultimate Hollywood crush, Tom Cruise.
Since then, my life has been filled with nothing but movies, movies and more movies. When I feel sad, I turn to movies like "The Great Gatsby", so that I can cry my lungs out. When I feel in love, I turn to movies like "Austenland", so that I can get kilig over J.J. Feild's British accent.
On days when I actually find time to hit the cinemas with my friends, on the other hand, I turn to the GMovies app.
