Aff and Songkran, already married?!

OMG!It feels like just yesterday when Aff broke-up with her general long term boyfriend and be criticized for involving with the notorious playboy named Songkran, but look at them now, after three years they are now married.(weeps) I'm so happy for Aff, she deserved the best, hopefully Songkran will really take care of her.

Oh my, first, it's Noon, then Aff, who's next? The Nangek's are all getting married, but I still wish to see them in Lakorns, it will never be the same without them.

I can't believe this, there's already a SNSD sub-unit and looks like it would be a really successful debut. I'm a straight WONDERFUL and full supporter of Wonder Girls ever since they debuted with Irony, however there is this traitor side of me which adores different groups including SNSD, and this unit is a collaboration of 2 of the girls I like most, Seohyun & Taeyon, I'm actually hoping that there would also be something like this for Jessica and Sunny but I guess they are all in a different path. But hang on, even though I adore these girls, a part of me is hoping that it will fail(what!), because the wonderful part of me is kicking the hell out of my system, saying that this would only left WG at par in the competition.

JYP, please do something quick!

Melissa P.

Last movie I saw...
Melissa P. (2005)
Directed by: Luca Guadagnino

Cast:
María Valverde

This film is based from a semi-autobiography of Melissa Panarello, 100 colpi di spazzola prima di andare a dormire (One Hundred Strokes of the Brush Before Bed), though she didn't support the film because she feels that it's not loyal to her novel.

Well, my only reason why I watched the film is because of María Valverde, which became one of my favorite actresses after seeing Cracks. It's really unbelievable that at an early age she was able to portray a very disturbing and daring role. I'm somewhat shocked with some of the scenes though I already conditioned myself based from the reviews that I've read for this motion picture.

The strength of this film is all about it's story and the intention to influence youth. I like how the story was written and how it ended, my favorite scene is the last part where she was in the sea. I don't regret that I've seen this unconventional production because this just reiterates the things that are really happening in our society.

Sentiments

I'm happy with what's going on at work but I'm still not contented with my career. You see, it's two different things. I'm actually feeling a bit tired on being a breadwinner, well not totally but almost. I don't want to pay for the house, for any bills, debts..I just want to have some fun. I want to feel the money I've earned for, I want to experience the life of a 22-years-old adult whose single and ready to mingle. I want to be with my friends and be able to be proud of my achievements and be more attractive than they are, better than they are. I want to treat my relatives, visit my cousins..I want to do lots of things. lots!

But in the end of the day, I know the real deal, and I just have to bear with it all.

Pretty in Pink

Last movie I saw...
Pretty in Pink (1986)
Directed by: Howard Deutch

Cast:
Andrew McCarthy
Molly Ringwald

"If you give off signals that you don't want to belong, people will make sure that you don't."-Principal

Another impressive 80's treat. I'm really lovin' the films from that decade. The film has a good phasing compared to 90's which is a major factor to hold viewers interest. I also like the cinematography, it's just basic but the simplicity of the shots matches very well with the overall teenage concept of the story. I love the actors, and when I say actors, it's literally the actors like Andrew McCarthy, Jon Cryer and especially James Spader, they are all so handsome and their acting were flawless.(bias much?)haha

And even though I can't find what's special with Molly Ringwald, I still find myself admiring her. But her acting is somewhat off or it's just me, perhaps she's really good because she turned down roles of Julia Roberts for Pretty Woman and Demi Moore's in Ghost, maybe being chosen for those characters means something. And,she can surely beat Angelina Jolie with those pouty lips. haha.

This film is another portrayal of a cinderella, which I think is a pattern that would never get old. I like the presentation of the story considering that it's in 80's. Good Job. Pretty In Pink is a motion picture that everyone must see.

Gnomeo & Juliet

Last movie I saw...
Gnomeo & Juliet (2011)
Directed by Kelly Asbury

Cast:
James McAvoy
Emily Blunt

I was so excited when I saw this film in my friend's hard drive, because I made a promise to myself to give modern animation films a chance for me to like, since I'm really attached with the old Disney films.(e.g. Cinderella, Little Mermaid, Lion King, Pocohontas, Mulan, etc.)

I'm loving the concept with dwarfs portraying the most known fictional leads of Shakespeare's tragic story of Romeo Loves Juliet. I think that it's a brilliant idea especially the title "Gnomeo & Juliet", the man behind this title & script might have a great potential in advertising. And though I enjoyed it, it's not as much as how I experienced it with "Up", which is really promising.

But it doesn't mean that I did not appreciate the other factors of the film, because I like the graphics and how the lines were delivered,it's just that I felt short with how the story progresses. I think that the writer could have done better in finishing the story because it feels like he runs out of good ideas and just randomly finished the script.

Overall, this is a good film especially for those kids and young at heart. A great twist to our beloved tragic couple, Romeo and Juliet.

Get Over It

Last movie I saw...
Get Over It (2001)
Directed by: Tommy O'Haver

Cast:
Ben Foster
Kirsten Dunst

"For the first time in my life, I was in love. And I knew it would last forever... Boy was I a dumb ass."-Berke Landers


I decided to watch this film for three reasons. First, I want to see Kirsten Dunst. Second, we had plenty of time to kill. Third, I want to see a new film. With that being said, I'm not really expecting a mind-blowing film but at least something that can make me feel good after hours of working.

The film started really strong with it's break-up scene with Vitamin C belting ">Love Will Keep Us Together(w/c is actually my favorite part), however the good seconds of glory didn't last long when they prolong the act that looks like it was intended for a music video, rather than just being part of a motion picture. But still, I'm a 90's baby and I fell in love with all of the old school songs that were played in the film. I'll say that music scoring is pretty good but not enough to hold people's interest. Cinematography, screenplay and acting was so-so which I'm used to see in most of the 90's film.(I don't know what's with that decade but when I watch the movies now, the plot all seems crappy)

This could somehow be a fun watch if you have "motivations" just like mine but if not, you'll surely be switching to other film within 15 minutes. So suit yourself, check it out!

Genie



Last week was a hell of a ride at work. Things happened so fast and it gets a lot tougher. I thought that I could finally breathe last friday, but I was wrong. And because I'm in too much stress(so much for a senior process executive post!), I decided to watch Dream High(do I have to explain it?). In all fairness, it's really inspiring but the scene that struck me the most was the "Tell Me Your Wish" cover of SNSD. It's not because I'm impressed with how they sang it, but it's because of the english translation of the song. I remember listening to the song back in college but I didn't really mind the meaning of it, I'm more fascinated with the leg movement. I'm not aware that the song can really be inspiring, the moment I've read my favorite line it's as if I'm floating in a different horizon(it's weird!), and here's the magical line "Even if your heart beat explodes, Even if you fly away with the wind, Right now, this moment, the world is yours". I can't help to view SNSD's music video and live performances.

This would surely be my song of the week.
