More Spike Lee please.

Posted : 9 years, 8 months ago on 31 October 2008 12:54 (A review of 25th Hour)

Once again, Edward Norton has left me bedazzled. I watched this with my boyfriend, who's another fan of Norton, and yes, we liked this just the same. Rosario Dawson's role is a plus; she's a goddess and I like her for being bold and sassy.

Now I'm wanting to see more of Spike Lee's flicks!

We all lose 21 grams.

I certainly love IƱarritu's direction of this super A film! The actors' acting will definitely get into your nerves and veins - in a serious soulful way. I am almost reluctant to post a review of this because, yes, it's way beyond the powers of my adjectival phrases. IƱarritu is a genius. :)

Twenty forty what?

Posted : 9 years, 8 months ago on 31 October 2008 12:47 (A review of 2046 (2004))

I saw this in the movie house with my boyfriend and I am quite sure that I slept more than half of its running time. The whole futuristic thing was really boring. Hahaha. But I do know that the director of 2046 is fucking A. That's why I really want to see this film again. So that I can make a better review. Pardon me. :)

When tight jeans used to be cool...

Posted : 9 years, 8 months ago on 31 October 2008 12:42 (A review of 13 Going on 30 (2004))

Jennifer Garner's performance is super quirky and cute and cool and great. Almost everything about this film is feel-good! Mark Ruffalo is adorable, both as a kid and an adult. The Thriller dance scene is funny and quite entertaining. And I absolutelo love the ending: tear-jerky and comedic! :)

Am I the 13th primate?

Posted : 9 years, 8 months ago on 31 October 2008 12:33 (A review of 12 Monkeys)

This is one of the few exquisite films that will certainly leave your minds wondering and wandering. The actors in this are extraordinary and yes, the plot is super twisted and almost vague.

I will surely view this again to have answers to my lingering questions. :P

Yes, take it very literally.

Posted : 9 years, 8 months ago on 31 October 2008 12:28 (A review of 100 Days with Mr. Arrogant)

I am not a die hard fan of Korean love flicks because almost all of them are so childish. But of boredom, I decided to borrow a compilation of K-romantic comedies from my boyfriend's sister. Honestly, I quite enjoyed most of them, hahaha, talk about guilty pleasures.

As much as its title implies, this flick is about a girl who needs to serve an arrogant, rich, and good-looking young man, for a hundred days. And yes, you guessed it: they fall in love in the end. It wasn't that sucky, I guess. Koreans are the epitome of romantic comedies, indeed. :)

It's funny how the translations of Korean titles turn out in English. It's too literal, it sucks sometimes. :P

Some things I don't hate about this movie.

Posted : 9 years, 8 months ago on 31 October 2008 12:21 (A review of 10 Things I Hate About You (1999))

This was so last high school. But I must confess it was my era of chick flicks. Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger weren't my typical cute couple. In fact, I liked Joseph Gordon Levitt and Larisa Oleynik's tandem more.

But yes, there are a lot of sappy and lines in this film and I would definitely want to see it again. Plus, the soundtrack rocks! :)

My father's a murderer of love.

Posted : 9 years, 8 months ago on 31 October 2008 11:53 (A review of Dan in Real Life (2007))

My boyfriend bought me this video and, probably, he assumed that I'll like it since it stars Steve Carrell. Dan in Real Life is not purely comedy. In fact, it caused me tears in the ending. Steve's performance is funny yet touching as well. His attachment to his late wife who died 4 years ago has turned him into a murderer of love: his 3 daughters hate him for killing joy in their family. Also, Steve's punchlines are good: not the exaggerated type of punchlines, which made the film more blissful. And wholesome. Juliette Binoche surprised me here. Unlike her role in Chocolat, she's kind of whorish in this one. Haha. :)

The same old thing we did last week? Err.

Posted : 9 years, 8 months ago on 31 October 2008 11:26 (A review of In Good Company (2004))

1. I decided to buy this video because I was eager to watch any of Topher Grace's flicks. I certainly liked him in That '70s Show and it made me wonder why he has so few films. The actor has superb acting skills. And I was right.

2. In fact, when I was watching In Good Company, it felt like watching the same old Eric Forman blurting his old shenanigans and being the same old dumbass as he was in the '70s sitcom. And as always, he cracked me up. He's still very scrawny but at least he didn't twitch. Hahaha. He was just "jumpy" in one scene. :P

3. And I really think that Scarlett Johansson resembles Laura Prepon, yes I'm still babbling about That '70s Show - Donna Pinciotti. Am I right? :D

4. Dennis Quaid's surname was Foreman. And again, another That '70s Show connection? Well except for Red Forman's bald head. :)

5. This film has an okay story but it sucks because Topher and Scarlett didn't end up together. I'm a sucker for happy endings. :P

Let her die a happy death.

Posted : 9 years, 8 months ago on 31 October 2008 11:13 (A review of The World of Silence)

Euphoric mushrooms. Toy clowns. Girls' dresses. Missing girls. Dead girls. Smiles on their faces.

If I fall asleep after some chapters of a film, I definitely won't give a rating that's higher than 5. This film was quite predictable in the beginning. And it being an Asian horror film, maybe I was expecting more like A Tale of Two Sisters.

But what fascinated me in The World of Silence is its twist: the unexpected characteristic of the protagonist himself. The title caught me off-guard. The World of Silence, what the fuck. I should have guessed it the moment I played it.
