*If you haven't seen the movie Hard Candy (another Ellen Paige film which is a great movie!), then watch the film first or get details on about the film before reading this, because I don't wanna give spoilers to it. But if you have seen it, then you can read this. Maybe about the second time watching the film, you may have noticed these small connections with each other.*

I was watching Hard Candy for the second time one night, and noticed it had some similarities to Juno. Hard Candy did come first before Juno, so Juno may have connections to it. I paused the movie and asked my parents if they have noticed the them, and they said,"It's probably just a coincidence, don't worry about it." Yet, I feel like they maybe, maybe not. But, I'll just show the differences first, but then why I feel like they have some sort of connection with each other.


Hard Candy 2005/thriller:

* It is more dramatic and suspenseful

* You can't tell who's really the good or bad guy

You are the cheese to my macaroni
You are always there
You never do care
Even when my off beat ideas
Or if I messed up on guitar playing
You never make fun of me
You always clap and cheer
Even if the crowd boos and jeers
You'll be like the only one clapping and loving it.
I love it that you need me
I love it that I need you
A date with me is like going to the playground and talking
And a date with you is like so real, so calm
Others say we're so unromantic
I just tell them to stick it up and shut it up
While you give them the bird.
Eric and Donna could have never been this way
Because we never fight or yell at each other.
You are the wheels to my bicycle
Like an awesome cherry red bike at Christmas.
You never talk down to me
You never say that I should wear this or that
You never hurt me in anyway.
We both love the same things in different ways

In one day a life can change
and only you can decide if it is for the better
and although sometimes it might seem strange
you relize its up to you to make it better

When you hold that little bundle of joy
you must Forget that rotten boy
that left You when You needed him most
to suck the Heart out of his next host

SO take this wonderful gift you recieved
and teach her not to be decieved
for you love her no matter what
so Shut Shut Shut
the door to her heart must go until your ready
to let her go

THis time may be hard for family and friends
but the wounds in your heart will surely mend
and while your time being young seemed so brief
dont lengthen time now with all the grief

She says goodbye and so do You
and both of you
know that you share a love thats true

....................

Never give up you will always make it might be hard but the child that loves you is always worth keeping.

hi all. ain't it great we can finally have opinions about things again now that we swept that white trash bush administration out the door? Trying to tell a bunch of saddened people they're not criminals for having opinions like we weren't crushed over 9/11 too. And that's why Diablo Cody is a genius. She probably had Juno finished for the longest time and nobody wanted to buy it until she watched enough Fox News and such and realized that "hey...maybe my protagonist should KEEP the baby." She started to do what all starving script writers have done during the wifebeater bush years -- ask themselves how to make their stuff acceptable in a world where everyone thinks it's cool to be callous jerks only to discover their own government ripped them off took their houses drowned their relatives in New Orleans and made raising a kid in this country a chore at worst a crying shame at best. What's my kid supposed to be? A bully so he succeeds? Or a nice kid I like having around so he fails? And everyone's a hillbilly creep. Even people who aren't white and many of them played along with the new Bush Nazism (2000-2008), thinking it was cool to use people for the purposes of climbing up in...

I've seen this movie out of the corner of my eye on my laptop many times. Spider-Man 3 and Dark Knight as well. So I have lots of opinions about Juno. Here's what I liked.

1) Alison Janney's character was the best concept in the script. The idea that she's disrespected and regarded as ineffectual and a nuisance until the day there's actually something going on that she should be on the ball for. And damned if she is. What a nice metaphor for what Moniq was saying.

2) Juno's friend is so fine. Honest to blog.

3) The storyline with the Lorings fit in no other movie except Juno. A major strength in Diablo Cody's script is the understanding that certain scenes SPECIFICALLY GO WITH CERTAIN PROJECTS while others don't. Nothing in Juno doesn't belong and very few scenes in Juno would fit in any other movie out there. All these are VERY good things. At least to me.

4) The fact that the script allows Juno to freewheel from a failed attempt being a homewrecker to making up with Bleeker like nothing ever happened is very interesting because it's so...FEMINIST. Such a stamp of female empowerment. We're used to the woman's decisions all...

Okay homeskillet and homeskilletettes. Before you write a movie-mov, you have to follow ten major steps.

1. Give yourself a year to write it...but don't get started until 364 days in. The dialogue will flow more naturally on the fly with eight hours and a hundred pages to go.

2. Come up with a super genius funny gimmick like I did in Juno with the barfing in Bren's urn. I was so proud of that. So so proud of it. DIDN'T YOU THINK IT WAS CLEVER?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

3. I don't like to paint my characters in a corner just to have to figure out ways to get them out. I prefer to just cut to the ending. I mean who's gonna tell?

4. Now Asian characters can be tricky. Originally I was going to play Su-Chin like a Vietnamese hooker. I was met with resistence. That's gonna happen in what I call "the biz". BUT I DID get to keep her broken English. All babies want to get borned!

Perhaps the amazing underlying subtext of Juno is that if society treated women better and had more respect for their tastes they'd be given better things then what's on the screen to put on a pedestule. Juno has a chair placed throughout in order to make it seem artsy and deep. They never show Juno and her friend being sold Life Saver dots and being told they're acid, which means we also don't get to see how warped and tripped out they pretend they are as a result. Juno is like a school day during a blizzard. A deflated football everyone tries to push over the goalline.

juno: you're taking soupy sales to prom while I'm pregnant!

bleeker: yeah well you're the one who broke my heart first I should be super pissed at you

juno: well...I'm a planet!

bleeker: that's it? That's how you're gonna win the argument Mott the Hoople homeskillet way beyond my maturity level Greta Rauss? Diablo Cody Airlines would be funny. The most heavily decorated plane that ever crashed.

Juno is an excursion through that dorm at the big state college where you think it's a bunch of people who are very insightful but no...it's people like the Moldy Peaches.

Hi all. Juno sucks. If you want a good example of what the nice lady underneath this post says, see jackie brown or sleepaway camp. Sleepaway camp is a wonderful example of female empowerment kicking butt. It's like Munich for the weird girl. Juno would have worked alot better if Alison Janney were the focus but all the teenagers would have stayed from it. Lots of good parts in Juno but they're wasted. Lots of good OBSERVATIONS in Juno...and they're wasted.

Forget juno. Anyone could have written it. Watch how Diablo Cody wants more then anything to make the "dream big!" point--

You don't even know me, Bren.
I know enough.

(then a pause)

We don't even have a dog.
Yeah that's right we don't...

See what happened here? Diablo Cody wanted to get that dream big joke so bad but there is NO transition. I'll come up with more. There are thousands. Like the fact that everyone's so impressed by J.K. Simmons simply because he's playing someone who's not a total psychopath. But do see Juno for one reason only...

A note from the author: I wrote this paper for an assignment. I really enjoyed writing this essay and I hope you enjoy reading it.


I believe that Juno will influence the portrayal of women of the films we’ll see in the next decade because of the intelligence and honesty that it gives to its female characters and the resonance that this movie has had with the current and upcoming movie making generation. We live in world where kids grow up too fast, men don’t grow up fast enough and women still fight the epic battle between career and family by themselves, even when they’re married. Juno examines these truths that color the modern reality and the way the some women navigate through it. Diablo Cody, the writer of Juno, has her own well-publicized past that seems to have granted her the freedom to look at womanhood and sexuality without shame, but as simply apart of life. Being unashamed about teenage sexuality allows Diablo’s characters to deal with Juno’s pregnancy in a practical, mature way. The women in this movie, all at different stages in their lives, create a picture of the different ways a woman can express herself and handle a situation...
