Thursday Movie Picks: Diary/Journal

Hey, guys!
Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
To kick off April, we’re going to talk about some films featuring diaries and journals!

#1 Heathers

This film is so iconic, it might be my all-time favorite performance by Winona Ryder. I mean, just the line “Dear diary, my teen angst has a body count” is beyond brilliant.

#2 Cruel Intentions

Going from an iconic 80’s flick to a famous 90’s one. This fresh take on Les Liaisons Dangereuses comes with a great cast and a great soundtrack. Plus the character played by Ryan Phillippe keeps a journal, which will be important in the course of the story.

#3 Bridget Jones’s Diary

And finally, we have Bridget Jones, whose diary is even in the title of the film. I rewatched this film last year and it didn’t quite hold up in some regards, but it certainly is a perfect fit for this week’s theme!

What’s your favorite film about a journal/diary? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Heathers has always escaped my path for some reason but I hope to get this fixed this year. I saw Dangerous Liaisons but not Cruel Intentions because its teenage kids being a-holes. The 2 leads look so smarmy. I really like Bridget Jones even with Rene in the lead. I love the scene when she dresses up like a trollop and her dad as a priest/bishop where many others got the memo to dress normal.
