Taste My Sad
The other night, a writer named John Krizel was on the Jeopardy Tournament of Champions and Alex Trebek asked him about his blog. It turns out Krizel does a movie blog about sad films, so I looked it up. (Because I'm a movie blogger and I was on Jeopardy back in 2007.) Krizel's blog, Taste My Sad, is a mirror cousin of the Chick Flick Guy. It's about emotional movies, but it focuses on depressing, whereas I lean toward happy.
The day I checked it out, Krizel was talking about "Titanic," definitely a chick flick, but not a film that, er, floats my boat. My favorite thing about Titanic is the pop culture references that it spawned. One is in Britney Spears' "Oops! I did It Again." A second is in "Love Actually," where the widower and his stepson watch Kate and Leo for moral support. (see clip below) Anyhow, if your taste runs to multi-hankie cinema, check out Taste My Sad.
