The Most Popular Rom-Com In Every State

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! I’m not big on romantic comedies. In fact, the majority make me want to barf. I do like the occasional rom-com, though, as long as they’re actually good. The Princess Bride, Say Anything, and the little-known In Your Eyes are favorites of mine. Okay, I probably like more romantic comedies than I’d ever admit… I just have to be in the right mood for them.

I found the above map fascinating, which shows state by state which rom-com comes up in the most internet searches. I was quite shocked that Pretty In Pink is overwhelmingly the top-searched rom-com in the United States according to Google trends. Being a big Hughes fan (I did a big ‘ol John Hughes Blogathon back in my blogging heyday), I was super happy to see that it still remains so popular. I had no idea! Pretty In Pink (which I reviewed HERE) isn’t my absolute favorite Hughes film (I prefer Some Kind Of Wonderful, which I reviewed HERE) but knowing that my home state apparently still loves it to this day warms my tiny little frozen heart. Idaho has the best taste, though… Yay, Idahoians! As you wish! I don’t know anyone from Idaho. You too, North Dakota! *high five* Give me your heart & I’ll give you a pen!

You can see the article about the above map HERE at the Mental_Floss website, which also contains a link to a bigger image of the map.

Wait… Maybe Americans just really love The Psychedelic Furs???

By the way, if you’re going to a movie with your loved one tonight, I highly recommend The LEGO Batman Movie… 😉

What Character Would You Like To See On Game Of Thrones?

20140706-121809 pm-44289788.jpg

The delightful Melissa over at Snap Crackle Watch has done a (I’m assuming) really fun post in which she asked a bunch of bloggers “what character from another movie or TV show would you like to see on Game Of Thrones?”. I’m sure there are lots of thoroughly entertaining answers! Unfortunately, I can’t read them as I’m currently working my way through Game Of Thrones (I’m up to Season 2, Episode 3). And it’s awesome. And I’ve managed to avoid spoilers. And if you spoil it for me, I will hunt you down and YOU WILL PAY! 😉 (I’m serious. Don’t mess with me)

Anyway, if you’d like to read my answer (and everyone else’s great answers, I’m assuming), follow this link HERE. 🙂

Honorable Mentions:

Disney Princess Movies – I’ll be lazy & just say all the princesses
The Aristocats – Duchess
The Neverending Story – The Childlike Empress
King Kong – King Kong
Purple Rain – Prince
The King Of Comedy – Rupert Pupkin
Enemy Of The State – Because it stars The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air AND Regina King :-p

And finally:

Flash Gordon – Emperor Ming The Merciless, Prince Vultan, Princess Aura, Prince Barin, some more I think, AND music by Queen. This movie is royal-rific! And Ted loves it…

**A Note:

These are the types of films I like. I looked at lists of proper “royal” films. You know what? I’ve seen hardly any of them! So this is my list of personal preferences. And I think it’s way more fun. 🙂
