When I was in college, I had some friends (actually, it was more like I knew some girls who were way cool and I admired them from afar and called them my "friends" in my journal.) (Kind of the way I make "friends" with other bloggers today. *cough*) who made a kissing movie. This was back in the VHS days, so they had recorded the kissing part of a bunch of different movies and dubbed music over the top of it.
It was so awesome.
Imagine, ten minutes of Hollywood's finest, going at it. My friends had watched it so many times that they offered commentary, too. The one I remember best was "Ever After": "She tastes it, she likes it, she goes back in for more."
Making a kissing movie has been on my to-do list since that fateful day. In that vein, here is my top ten kisses list!
- Percy and Annabeth (in The Last Olympian) This kiss is long awaited. And underwater in a giant bubble, which sounds ridiculously fun to me.
- Harry and Ginny (in Half-Blood Prince and Deathly Hallows) I have to give full credit to Ginny for both kisses. She is a go-get-em type of girl. I love the fact that she rushes Harry at the Quidditch celebratory party AND that she ambushes him on his birthday.
- Ron and Hermione (in Deathly Hallows) This was also a long awaited kiss and I had to read it a few times to make sure it really happened. Really? Hermione just jumped Ron?? Awesome. I love Harry's annoyed reaction, too.
- Max and Fang (in Max: The Protectors) Flying bird kids in love=kissing whilst flying. That puts it in the same category as kissing underwater in a giant bubble. In other words, it's on my bucket list of impossibility.
- Ronnie and Will (in The Last Song) Admittedly, I'm not a huge Miley Cyrus fan. Maybe that's part of the appeal of this kiss to me. They're arguing, he's annoyed, so he shuts her up with a kiss. Good call, Will. Good. call. (Here's a link if you want to check it out yourself.)
- Anne and Gilbert (in Anne of Green Gables) Uh, do I really need to explain this one? "I don't want sunbursts and marble halls. I just want you!" Ahhhhh. Totally worth the six hour wait.
- Frederic and Mabel (in Pirates of Penzance) He has to leave his beloved for 63 years, so what's a man to do? Sing to her, waltz with her, dip her and plant a nice one full on her lips. That'll hold her for half a dozen decades.
- Squints Palledorous and Wendy Peffercorn (in The Sandlot) Not a particularly romantic kiss, but surrounded by so many good lines that I couldn't resist. "She doesn't know what she's doing." "Yeah, she does. She knows exactly what she's doing." "Oiling. Lotioning. Lotioning. Oiling. I can't take it no more! Move!" "He had kissed a woman. And he had kissed her long and good." I could go on and on. Plus, he gets the girl in the end, so it all works out.
- Lend and Evie (in Paranormalcy) I love the idea portrayed in this one; she can see him, literally, in a way no one else can. That makes for a super sweet kiss.
- Catcher and Gabry (in Dead-Tossed Waves) The intensity of the feelings surrounding this moment, the exhilaration of summer romance juxtaposed with a fear of zombie attack, made my tummy whirl. Quite pleasantly.
What kisses do you love?
