I’ve skipped the past few Thursday Movie Pick prompts but I’m back for the bad boys! I mean, who doesn’t love a bad boy? If you aren’t familiar with Thursday Movie Picks, it’s pretty simple! As the name suggests, Thursday Movie Picks is held every Thursday. The rules are based on the theme of the week pick three to five movies and tell us why you picked them. I told you it was easy.
1. Bad Boys
“Miami-Dade detectives Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) blow a fuse when $100 million worth of heroin they recently confiscated is heisted from station headquarters. Suspecting it was an inside job, Internal Affairs gives them five days to track down the drugs before they shut down the narcotics division.”
I mean, can you have a list about bad boys and not include the movie “Bad Boys?” You could easily have an entire list filled with just these movies. I love Will Smith and Martin Lawrence together. The chemistry they have is fantastic and I’m a sucker for a good action movie, especially when it has some humor tossed in.
2. The Covenant
“In the 17th century, five families with supernatural powers make a pact of silence. Eventually one power-hungry family is banished. The descendants of those four remaining families are heirs to tremendous power. Known as the Sons of Ipswich, the boys attend elite Spencer Academy. When a student there is found dead after a party, unraveling secrets threaten to shatter the pact that has protected the boys’ families for centuries.”
It’s basically “The Craft” with boy bitches and not as great. I would have loved to see a crossover though. The entire reason I watched this movie was because Sebastian Stan plays one of the characters and turns out to be the ultimate witchy bad boy.
3. Cruel Intentions
“Annette (Reese Witherspoon) unwittingly becomes a pawn in Sebastian’s (Ryan Phillippe) and Kathryn’s (Sarah Michelle Gellar) deliciously diabolical wager of sexual conquest when she writes an article in Seventeen Magazine about how she intends to stay pure until she marries her boyfriend. However, Sebastian gets more than he bargained for as he attempts to woo Annette into his bed.”
One could argue he’s just an asshole, not a bad boy, but Ryan Phillipee is fantastic in this role. It’s not that easy to be a bad boy. It has to be believable and sometimes, it’s just not. I remember being obsessed with this movie when it first came out, and with Ryan. Ah, that teen life.
That’s the list for this week! Who are some of your favorite bad boys?
