martian child

i just came back from watching Martian Child. its a tug-at-your-heartstrings kind of movie. definitely take a few tissues, if you're the crying kind. i could have used a towel, i cried so much.

i can identify very much with this kid...except i've always felt more like a monster - some one or thing that can't fit in, can't blend in as some aliens might be able to do. monster's stand out, because they're not likable, they create discomfort in others, because of their differences. i've never felt like i belonged...ever.

since i can remember i've identified with the Beast, not Beauty....with Phantom, not Christine......with Hyde, not Jekyll. have always wanted the underdog to get his day in the spotlight, to get the girl, to be the hero.

anyway, John Cusack is one of those actors that I always make sure to catch, no matter what, because (as i read somewhere) "he's the thinking woman's sex symbol".

i say amen to that.
