Ok, so Kris Allen won. The debates were still searing, even Clay Aiken had his say about all this. But I won’t discuss that on this post. Still can’t over Kris’s victory, yes, but I’ve had enough of those rants about him too. I will instead post some overdue reviews I had this past few months. From my Muliply, of course. It has been ages since I posted reviews here!
I actually didn’t know much about this film. I once saw the trailer, but missed the part that it was based on actual events. My friends and I initially planned to watch Fuschia one Saturday night after celebrating Arden’s birthday. But I don’t know why they all chose The Haunting in Connecticut instead. My pareng Nhinz was the one who suggested it.
What I like about the movie is that it’s not the typical horror film made to scare its viewers. There is a great story and you’d somehow get engrossed with it. I’m actually not much of a fan of American horror movies, I’d go for Japanese/Koreans and the like. That’s why I’m kind of surprised while watching this one.
Aside from the ending, the part that really struck me were those old pictures. So eerie, those faces! Waaahh! It can haunt you on your sleep hehe! All in all, I liked it. Might buy a dvd copy soon for the twins to watch. They’re so into horror flicks.
Oh, I love the quote Virginia Madsen said towards the ending. That God works in mysterious ways. I just forgot the entire quote hehe!

I love this one, to the bits! It just keeps on getting better, I tell yah! I really can’t remember the movie version but, ok, I’ll focus on the book of course. The story’s amazing, the characters are very revealing and unforgettable, the pacing is just spot on! I couldn’t help but flip through the pages, my eyes hurting and fingers burning.
My favorite part? A lot, actually. When Harry, at Hogsmeade, found out a lot of things about his father. I was like, also gasping while reading it! Also when they (Harry, Hermione, and Ron) found out about the Marauder’s Map, and that Sirius, Pettigrew and Harry’s dad were friends before; and the trailing truth about who’s to blame about Harry’s parents death. That was just so intense! And of course, when Hermione and Harry turned back time, saved the hippogriff’s and Sirius’s lives. Waaah, ang galeeeng!!
I might watch the movie version later, same with The Chamber of Secrets. Sort of a marathon. Basta, I love this book so much! And I’ll start the fourth book later as well. Ha! :d

I didn’t get to watch DaVinci Code. This one’s its prequel, I think. For the book, at least. A friend told me Angels & Demons (the book) is way better than The DaVinci Code, that’s why I opted to watch it. And since I haven’t read any of the books, nothing of that disappointed feeling coz I’ve nothing to compare it with. But with or without the book, I think the movie was done beautifully. Ron Howard did a great job.
Tom Hanks did great, too. At one point though I was like questioning how good he is playing his role. I later realize he’s playing as a Symbologist. Or Symbolist? Something like that. Ewan Gregor was brilliant! I have never seen him act this great. Well, I’m not much of a fan of his, but yeah, I loved him in this movie.
Overall, 4 stars. I just love how the movie was made, na talagang naapreciate ko sya even though di ko napanood ung DaVinci. I want an Illuminati ambigram as a tattoo!! haha! 😀
