STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS- Stuck in Love: On brow game, Stephen King and middle class white romance


Stream Of Consciousness is a segment dedicated to the mind ramblings we all have whilst watching movies.


-I love this movie so much, this is my 5th time seeing it and oh my god, the feelings.

-Nat Wolff just kills me off, he’s such a good actor, so much promise for the future.

-Also Lily Collins my huuuuuuuge 2013 inspo, those brows.


-Before watching this I already appreciated Stephen King but this was the movie that made me start to collect every last Stephen King book I can get my hands on in charity shops. Currently stands at 42.

-This is 100% my favourite romance movie ever.

-Also it has a wicked soundtrack, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and  Bright Eyes, a thousand times YES

-Yeah, I know that ‘Home’ by Edward Sharpe is such a typical indie darling song choice but it is so uplifting and great its impossible not to love.

-They also have a ridiculously cool house that was basically destined to be in some teen slasher beach flick.


-Pretty sure me and Nat Wolff have the same birthday (check, 1 days difference). He too, has perfect eyebrows.

-Sam and Rusty are both such snooty ‘academia and literature is everything, I smoke pot because I’m creative’ types and I LOVE IT, I LAP THIS SHIT UP LIKE SWEET, SWEET NECTAR.




-Look at him all high and talking about The Beatles in a romantic manner, GET WITH ES

-The ‘hopeless romantics and realists’ monologue serves up so much realness

-Now he’s reading his own poetry, just kill me off.

-I love this family, I love that Bill makes them keep journals and encourages them to write.

-‘A writer is the sum of their experiences’, this line forreal changed my life and has made me do loads of shit just for the crack and ‘memoir purposes’.

-I can literally feel his heart break when he sees her snort coke.



-I usually hate boys in those puffa jackets but Nat works it.

-Awh Logan Lerman the cute larl bab, what a good little egg. He’s so nerdy I could cry with love.

-Greg Kinnear’s nipples are perfectly round.


-Lily Collins in this is basically me on a night out; filled with dry humour, facts and cutting down boys at any given opportunity.

-Her lil piece about favourite books is exactly how I feel whenever guys know I like films and then try to use it against me by asking my favourites so they can try to ‘relate’.

L: Fine, what are some of your favorite books?
S: No, you can’t do that.
L: I asked you.
S: Because you want to know something personal about me. If I tell you what my favorite books are, you’ll say titles that will convince me that we’re soul-mates, or you’ll latch onto one of my favourites and try to convince me it’s one of your favourites, too.

-Now Bon Iver is playing, really, really perfect soundtrack.

-Although, my main criticism of this film is how painfully white and middle class it is. An inter-connecting story or love in a family spanning race, culture, religion and different sexualities would be so interesting.

-The exchange of Stephen King’s ‘IT’ and the Bright Eyes CD is like a dream really.

-Yep, this Between The Bars scene was the reason I got into Elliott Smith, not from the Royal Tenenbaums like most people do.

-Every time I watch this I want to write.

-The fact that Lily Collins is meant to be the same age as me in this movie blows my mind. I am such an under-developed human.

-The scene with Rusty and Kate in the car when she’s passed out is the most heart-breaking thing next to Charlies Final Letter in Perks and the entirety of Bride to Terabithia.


-I love that Kate and Rusty break up cause she knows that only she can fix herself; good writing! Would have been a much easier/less real move to just have it all end up happily ever after.

-Logan Lerman crying in pretty much anything he’s in is just heart-breaking.

-The end with the table place and, oh wow, I’m such a cheese-ball.
