Singin’ In The Rain


I graduated from high school this year. I am apart of the graduating class of 2011.  A problem I faced at the beginning of the year was deciding whether  to take regular AP English or an English elective college preparatory course. I chose the ladder and was placed in a college level film analysis class. In that class I watched a lot of good movies from a lot of great genres. One movie that stuck out in particular though, was Singing In the Rain. It demonstrated a campiness that no other movie could display, it had great choreography, great songs, and ;most importantly to me, it showed love in a way that you don’t often see  in movies any more.

Nowadays you see a lot of Romantic Comedies like Friends With Benefits or movies like that one. Although i liked that movie, it didn’t display love quite in the same way as Singin’ In the Rain. Now there’s nothing wrong with that but it seems like more and more movies and T.V. shows are leaving the innocence of love out of the plot. And because people are leaving the innocence of love out of movies and T.V. shows and even music, kids are only learning about the sexual aspect of love. Since kids are only learning of the sexual aspect of love they have sex a lot younger and they figure if they have sex they’ll fall in love but, you and I both know that isn’t how it really is.

Love isn’t displayed in the media the same way it used to be displayed. It wasn’t that long ago when on T.V. you could watch Cory and Topangas love grow and flourish. It wasn’t that long when a lot of movies were like Like Crazy. Every now and again you’ll find a movie with an absolutely great love story like Blue Valentine or pretty much any other Ryan Gosling love movie but, for the most part you’ll see shows like Gossip Girl or movies like Friends With Benefits where love comes after sex. I don’t want to come off as saying don’t have sex but, sex can blind a person of their true emotions, so I’d just rather see movies where people wait for more than just attraction before they partake in sexual activities.
