Why i love Submarine...

By Lucy Harbron - 20:39


SO, last night i had a chill out night and snuggled on my sofa with a mug of peach tea, a blanket and a good film. I've been wanting to watch this film for ages as i had heard it was really good and it was! So i sat and i watched Submarine. and oh my gosh i just want to watch it 24/7 for the rest of my life. please?

So for those of you that haven't seen this film it is basically about a teenage boy called Oliver Tate who has some pretty weird views on life and is quite odd really! He falls for  a girl called Jordana Bevan after her plan to make her ex-boyfriend jealous leads of a romance with Oliver. They do all the cute couple things like holding hands, giving each other piggy backs, going for walks along the beach, etc etc but Jordana is very distant and when she finally opens up and lets Oliver in he doesn't know how to react to situations he is presented with. Also while all this relationship drama is going on Oliver suspects his mum is cheating on his Dad and drama goes on there. The whole film is the perfect mix of thoughtful deep stuff and comedy. ALSO Alex Turner wrote loads of songs for the film so the music is amazing!

Why i love this film
This film contains little bits of all the things i love-fashion, beauty, music, and things that make me think!

If you're a duffle coat lover, this is the film for you! Both Oliver and Jordana are totally working over-sized duffle coats. I adore Jordana's bold, red coat! It is the perfect twist on a classic and complements her skin tone so well. Oliver keeps his coat more classic. I love how their coats reflect their personality-Oliver's coat is always perfectly done up and neat in the classic navy blue to show his more classic, sensible personality. Whereas Jordana's is never done up and is just thrown on messily to show her more wild personality. Get it? yay!

But it's Jordana that really catches my fashion eye. In many scenes she wears this over sized printed grey jumper with her coat. She always looks so laid back with simple outfits but she has a certain look about her, a certain style so everything she wears looks like a statement, a message. She looks like my grandma, but in a fashionable good way!

Lets all have a moment of silence to take in how amazing Jordana's hair is. Just look at how it frames her face perfectly, emphasises her jaw line and adds a touch of edginess to her look. I will say it again, i wish i had thick, dark brown hair so i could pull off a full fringe, i just love them so much! Massive fringe envy from this film, huge fringe envy!

In terms of make-up Jordana has a simple look. I think it is just a little dark blusher and then eyeliner on the bottom of the eyes. Her whole look is so simple but really defines her eyes, makes them bold, deep and gives them a look of danger. No doubt i will be trying to become Jordana, i love her.

Like i said before Arctic Monkeys Alex Turner provides the soundtrack to the film. His songs match the feel of the film completely and the lyrics just complete it. I like the Arctic monkeys but in moderation, sometimes i find their lyrics a bit bombarding and too swear-filled. But the 5 songs on the Submarine EP are to total opposite. They are fragile, innocent and truthful. I could listen to them all day and still want to listen some more! The five songs are;

Hiding tonight-

Glass in the park-

It's hard to get around the wind-
Stuck on the puzzle-
Piledriver waltz-
Things That Make Me Think
Don't worry! The film isn't all intense and weird but some of the things Oliver says really makes you think! So here is a load of GIFs and quotes and stuff of all the little bits i like!

 Oliver Tate: Ask me how deep the ocean is.
Jordana Bevan: Shut up.
Oliver Tate: Come on, just ask me.
Jordana Bevan: Why?
Oliver Tate: 'Cause I know the answer.
Jordana Bevan: Oh! Do you?
Oliver Tate: Yes, I do.
Jordana Bevan: How deep is the ocean?
Oliver Tate: I'm not gonna say.
Jordana Bevan: I'm brokenhearted.
Oliver Tate: The ocean is six miles deep.
Jordana Bevan: Good.

Oliver Tate: Her new boyfriend has an incredibly long neck. Just thinking about giraffes makes me angry.

I massively recommend this god of a film!
That's all for now folks, remember to subscribe!
have a good week!
much love
