I’ll Always Love My Mama   11 comments

First and foremost, welcome to my blog. Yeah, so I finally created one. God knows how long will I have the patience to constantly update this one.

Anyway, there’s no better way to start this blog by dedicating a post in celebration of Mother’s Day. I made a ranked list of my favorite movie moms of the past decade. So, let’s start the ball rollin’ shall we? 🙂

______________________________________________________________________________________________________

                                                                                                         16. JANINE “SMURF” CODY (Jacki Weaver, “Animal Kingdom”)

She’s in the list because… well she shouldn’t be on the list. She’s flat right evil. But I can’t refuse not including her especially her delivery of ” You’ve done a bad thing, sweetie!”

COOL-MOM-METER: ★★★★★★

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

     15. TESS COLEMAN (Jamie Lee Curtis, “Freaky Friday”)

She’s in the list because… there are only a handful of moms who can survive a body switching tragedy and a rock concert with flying colors. Tess is one of them.

COOL-MOM-METER: ★★★★★★

______________________________________________________________________________________________________

                                                                                                  14. LAURA (Belen Rueda , “El Orfanato”)

She’s in the list because… when she wants something, she never stops. Even if that means losing her husband, and rearranging her house.

COOL-MOM-METER: ★★★★★★

___________________________________________________________________________________________

     13. LEIGH ANNE TUOHY (Sandra Bullock, “The Blind Side”)

She’s in the list because…  she steals someone else’s kid. Kidding. She treats all her kids the same regardless if they’re adopted or not. Actually she might have spoiled Big Mike more.

COOL-MOM-METER: ★★★★★★

___________________________________________________________________________________________

                                                                                            12. THELMA (Cherrie Pie Picache, “Foster Child”)

She’s in the list because… she works as a foster mother but that doesn’t stop her from treating foster kids as if they’re her own children.

COOL-MOM-METER: ★★★★★★

___________________________________________________________________________________________

     11. SUNEE (Sinjai Plengpanich, “The Love of Siam”)

She’s in the list because… losing a daughter, having a confused homo son, an an alcoholic husband is too much for one woman to bear. But she managed to keep her sanity til the end.

COOL-MOM-METER: ★★★★★★

____________________________________________________________________________________________

                                                      10. NIC AND JULES ALLGOOD (Annette Bening and Julianne Moore, “The Kids Are All Right”)

They’re in the list because… they’re just as effective and affectionate (even better than some) than the other mothers next door regardless if they’re a lesbian couple. Yeah, i said it.

COOL-MOM-METER: ★★★★★★

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

     09. INA MONTECILLO (Ai Ai Delas Alas, Tanging Ina”)

     She’s in the list because… she’s superwoman personified. having 12 different kids with 12 different priorities is a big feat itself. And Ina welcomed all challenges that came her way, even if it means being the commander-in-chief.

COOL-MOM-METER: ★★★★★★

____________________________________________________________________________________________

                                                                                                                   08. BECCA CORBETT (Nicole Kidman, “Rabbit Hole”)

 She’s in the list because… she dealt with the death of her own child by befriending the guy who accidentally killed him. She tried to hold on for so long but even she knows she’ll break somewhere along the process.

COOL-MOM-METER: ★★★★★★

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

      07. MRS. GEORGE (Amy Poehler, “Mean Girls”)

She’s in the list because… it rarely happens that a Mom so wants to be cool and the daughter is the one in-charge. Plus, her boobs were as hard as rock. And she gives condoms anytime you want, just say it.

COOL-MOM-METER: ★★★★★★

____________________________________________________________________________________________

                                                                                                                                             06. IRENE (Carmen Maura, “Volver”)

She’s in the list because… it takes some major, major guts for a dead mother to continue existing in the lives of her daughters in a not-so-creepy way.

COOL-MOM-METER: ★★★★★★

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

     05. SELMA JEZKOVA (Bjork, “Dancer in the Dark”)

She’s in the list because… the sacrifices she’s willing to do is incomparable with anyone on the list. Anything for the sake of her son’s vision.

COOL-MOM-METER: ★★★★★★

___________________________________________________________________________________________

                                                                                                             04. YAYA NORMA (Maricel Soriano, “Inang Yaya”)

She’s in the list because… I don’t have a mother nanny but she made me weep til’ no end. As if being a mother isn’t a daunting task already, she’s also a nanny to another kid. Tearfest!

COOL-MOM-METER: ★★★★★★

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

     03. ERIN BROCKOVICH (Julia Roberts, “Erin Brockovich”)

She’s in the list because… she made a multi-million company bite her ass, Krsipy Kreme. She missed her baby’s first words but she got millions now. First words who?!?

COOL-MOM-METER: ★★★★★★

____________________________________________________________________________________________

                                                                                                                                                     02. JOSIE (Vilma Santos, “Anak”)

She’s in the list because… ilang pagkain ang tiniis niyang di kainin para lang makapagpadala ng malaking pera sa mga anak niya. Plus she’s the typical Filipino mom, and she had me in tears with that speech.

COOL-MOM-METER: ★★★★★★

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

     01. MOTHER (Kim Hye-ja, “Mother”)

She’s in the list because… she literally did everything in order to give her son the justice he deserves. Plus her dancing in the fields at the start and end of the film. You have to give it to her.

COOL-MOM-METER: ★★★★★★

____________________________________________________________________________________________

So yeah, that’s it. I hope you like the list. Any comment and opinion is very much welcome. 🙂

Happy Mother’s Day Mommy, and to all the mothers in the world. Keep on rocking! 🙂
