MOVIE TIME

My weekends and holidays are now spent watching movies, since on regular days, I don’t really have the time to watch them, especially because the people at home are busy supporting shows like “Ilumina” and “Beauty Queen.”

Last weekend, I watched “Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World,” which is awesome (it’s so easy to fall in love with the characters and the visuals), but not as awesome as “The Diary of a Wimpy Kid.” It is so awesome I think it is my favorite movie of the year. The characters are stereotypical (therefore entertaining and relatable) and the story is so-so, but several scenes are just so LOLers I found myself literally laughing out loud. It’s so good I think I need to watch it every week.

Awhile ago, I popped in “Leap Year,” starring the Avril Lavigne-looking Amy Adams and the adorable-looking Matthew Goode. It’s such a bad movie. The first half was so dragging. The Irish accent is confusing. And the plot and ending, of course, are so predictable. The only saving glory is Matthew Goode. He saves the film every time he is in the frame.

I also “watched” “Engkwentro.” The reason for the quotation marks enclosing watched is because I just listened to it while typing my articles. I am not sure if it’s just my copy, but it was really dark. Of course, it can be just the style, but, I don’t know, it just gave me a headache, especially because it’s like watching “The Blair Witch Project” all over again.

I still have a whole stack waiting to be watched, but there are articles to write and a slice of cookie dough cheesecake to appreciate so I don’t know. Impatiently waiting to be popped inside the player are “The Social Network,” “I Love You Too,” “Charlie St. Cloud,” “Kinatay,” “Pretty Little Liars,” “ Bangkok haunted 3,” “Death at a Funeral,” and “Repo men,” starring Jude Law!

Can’t wait for the next weekend/holiday!
