This year, the month of March will be synonymous to words such as movies, awards, recognitions, glam, and top-caliber celebrities. All because of the upcoming 82nd annual Academy Awards which will happen exactly one week from now. Having said that, since movies will rule in the next seven days or so, I guess it would be fitting for me to post an entry about films. I’d be twisting it a bit, though, because I will mainly discuss all the twelve movies I have watched in the past two months. Yes, twelve. I guess it would be safe to say that I go to a movie house at least once a week since this year started. Well, not all twelve was seen inside a cinema, only eight. And two of which are courtesy of some friends and movie buddies. Since I’ve been too lazy to make a review of each film, might as well post them all in one entry haha!
First up is my Oscar marathon films. The Blind Side is an amazing film. Sandra Bullock’s acting is A+ and really deserved the accolades. Precious pierced through my heart, and I believe people must watch it for the sole reason that the film is indeed precious. Up In The Air, on the other hand, is such a rave-worthy film. If you will notice, that’s the only film I got to make a review on. It’s FANTASTIC! The Hurt Locker is such an intense-filled movie it had my heart almost leap out of my chest. Director Kathryn Bigelow truly made a masterpiece.
These next movies are the ones I got to watch with my usual movie buddies Gly, Vienne & Carol. We all enjoyed Alvin and the Chipmunks, The Squeakel. Also nice to see our very own Charice making an appearance. Sherlock Holmes is also a fun movie to watch. Robert Downey and Jude Law make a great tandem for an action/comedy type of film. It pains me to watch The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, though, mainly because of Heath Ledger. Still, I believe he’s one of the most brilliant actors of this generation. Dinig Sana Kita, the only Filipino movie amongst the twelve, is so refreshing to watch. I have always loved watching Indie films and this one won’t be an exception. I was able to finally see it through a special screening held in Bonifacio High Street, and it was worth the wait and the sleep deprivation the day before.
Valentine’s Day is indeed the movie to watch last Valentine month. It was a fun movie, too. Aside from the stellar ensemble, there were a lot of cute and even shocking moments viewers enjoyed the most. Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, however, was a surprisingly nice film. At first, I thought it would be just a HP wannabe movie, but watching it proved to be otherwise. The story’s kind of cool, I might add. The Wolfman bored me a bit, but I loved the effects although it grossed me out. Nevertheless, I can still consider it as a good watch. The last movie, From Paris With Love, is such a hell of a ride! John Travolta rocked it, really. It was fun watching him play a villain type of role.
So, there. All twelve movies I got to see the past couple of months. After realizing that I’ve been spending too much on watching movies, comes the thought of slowing down a bit. Although I seriously need to catch up on my Oscar films marathon. I will do it in the next few days, before March 8th. I am stoked! Next post, hopefully, will be about my Oscar predictions. Let’s see how my favorites will fair. Will catch’ya at the movies! 🙂
