Wow, I didn’t know this one’ll become the 9th installment for my review posts until I checked the Archives. Anyway, here are my say about the movies & series I’ve watched, and book/s I got to read over the past month or so. Well, minus Harry Potter books 5 & 6. Just felt lazy to make a review for them, I guess. All these are originally posted on my Multiply page.
|Genre:||Action & Adventure|
Megan Fox is love! Is the toe thumb rumor true, though? But whattaheck, I still love her! Oh how I envy Shia!
And Bumblebee!! I love her!! Ang cute nya umiyak hehe… I also like the lolo Decepticon who offered Optimus to use his parts… Galeng!!
Sobrang astig din yung soundtrack syempre. Greenday’s 21 Guns is such a killer! And also The Fray, Hoobastank, Staind, and of course Linkin Park! Whoa!
I wanna watch it again!!!! =)
The story’s really interesting, and they make it seem real and believable. The characters were downright funny. Chuck really aces at this part, for me his acting’s the bomb. And yes, of course, my new girlfriend, the love of my life, Yvonne Strahovski!! Oh my, I just so l♥♥♥♥ve her!!! Hot, sexy, kickin’ ass here and there. I really envy Chuck. He also got to kiss her, dang!
I once tweeted and asked why does Chuck has to star hot and sexy ladies. Sarah Lancaster, who played Chuck’s sister, is also to die for! So, why then? Why?
I want more of this show! It’s so freakin’ addicting! Season 2 is comin up real soon.
Ok, that’s the most I can come up with to start this review haha! That’s how usually the narrator begins the show, not every episode though, and it most of the time reminds me of a movie I love, Amelie. But aside from that, Pushing Daisies is indeed one great show. I super super love it! To quote a blog/review I have stumbled upon, “It was charming, funny, heartfelt, inventive, and visually brilliant. And I loved every minute of it.”
True enough, I loved every minute of it. The story is undeniably interesting, and the characters were hilariously amazing. I just so love Ned (Lee Pace) and Chuck (Anna Friel), but on the other hand can’t imagine myself living with the one I love who I can’t even touch. Sad, but that’s just one of the show’s factor I learned to love the most. The idea is quite disturbing, but they made it seem more easier to absorb.
Detective Emerson Cod is one funny guy, too. Played by Chi McBride of Boston Public (I miss this show), it was like seeing another side of him, the funny side. And can I just say that Olive (Kristin Chenoweth) here is such a sweet, lovable, naive and funny girl I started to hate at first (because of her voice) but eventually learned to love. She’s very warm, receptive and extremely hilarious.
Anyway, I know I have much more to say about Pushing Daisies but I’d rather stop and look for the second season dvd. I hope I can find one with complete episodes. I heard it was cut short and that ABC stopped airing it last year. But it won’t change the fact that a lot of people loved it, myself included of course, and that we’ll all just hope to see more of Lee Pace and Anna Friel in the near future.
Almost half the time I felt like throwing up. Madami din kasing yucky moments hehe! And funny moments, too. The goat scene tops my list for this one, specially when it started to talk like a possessed one.
I’m not much of a movie critic but the music score actually helped a lot. Magugulat ka talaga sa ibang scenes because of the musical score. And you’d somehow feel na nakakatakot talaga. But all in all, ok naman sya. Probably it’s just me, kaya di ko masyado nagustuhan. The creepy, takot factor, I mean. Or probably I expected a lot from this movie, since I’ve been hearing good stuff before its opening. Ok, I don’t know what to make up of this review haha! Bangag na ko.
Basta lesson learned: Wag na magtrabaho sa bank, or maging credit/loan adviser haha! 😀
Well, this new one Kapitan Sino, I don’t know if I just didn’t get its message (coz I am sure there is, somewhere there hidden), or probably because minadali ko magbasa. I didn’t liked it that much. Maganda yung umpisa, the ending so so. But yeah, siguro nga it’s just me. I’ll probably read it again and edit this review.
Kapitan Sino is much like a novel (if that’s the correct term) that sets apart from his usual funny ones. Just like MacArthur, the first Bob Ong book I’ve read, which I really really love. I hate to compare, but I just can’t help it haha! I know it’s two entirely different story. But I liked his attack on the what we call “masa” people. I know most readers can relate with those tv shows, commercials, and food brands he mentioned on the book. Reminiscent of those good old days.
And that’s what I like about Bob Ong. I can so relate to his stories and stuff. So I guess I’d still count Kapitan Sino as one of a good book one should read.
