i consider myself a cinephile. i may not have watched a lot of movies compared to other people but i love watching movies, but not to the level of being a movie geek. i am a little choosy of the movies i want to see but i am easy to please. just don’t give me those that involve flying saucers and green-skinned monsters from other planets.
i usually rent the movies i watch because i want them to be as clear as possible on when i watch them on television. i don’t buy pirated movies either, unless they’re clear dvd copies. haha! harry potter movies are exempted. i’d buy them original or not. i remember leaving the movie house after watching harry potter and the prisoner of azkaban and grabbed the first pirated copy i laid my eyes on and watched it again in the cinemas the next day. haha!
i'm done with this following batch. can't wait to rent more! hehe!
SASSY GIRL (ENGLISH VERSION). len-len lent me a copy of the korean version three years ago. being made to remember this romantic story makes it a nostalgic entertainment. you may think i am naïve (i think i am) but it gets me every time i watch it.
WANTED. this is the best action movie since the italian job. i love the car chase with the viper. bloody cool! and how about angelina jolie? is she hot or what? i just love her. i loved the concept of the weavers and the “loom of fate”.
DARK KNIGHT. for the first time, i found myself rooting for the villain. heath (bless his soul) gave justice to joker’s role. i am not a fan of batman but i’ll stick to him with this one compared to that guy who got bitten by a radioactive spider and the red-caped hero.
KUNG-FU PANDA. this is one of the funniest animated movies ever! i love pandas and po is so cute. the fight scenes were so awesome. i almost got blind because of pure awesomeness! haha!
IMAGINE ME AND YOU. it’s about a woman who got married but eventually fell in love with another woman. so i guess it’s safe to assume they’re lesbians, right? it stars the girl from cayote ugly. i was a little uncomfortable watching her kissing that woman from 300.
THE INVISIBLE. very predictable plot but i got intrigued because of the concept of being invisible. i sometimes wish i could be, at my own will though; not to die and be an invisible ghost in limbo. i love the guy’s character and his poetry. the ending was crappy though.
CLOVERFIELD. i knew it. aliens. hays. one word for this one—headache.
SWEENEY TODD. Very artistically done! I applaud the art direction. However, it was a little disturbing. How's dead people for meat pies? Yummy! Ingeniously twisted eh? I guess it’s how Tim Burton wanted it to be.
i love watching movies at home especially with a cold weather like this; with a mug of coffee and high-carb food i could munch—just perfect. ;)
