Today is one of the best Saturdays of the year. Why? Because I finally saw Heneral Luna (FOR FREE!) and unexpectedly saw a certain male celebrity for the 3rd time! What are the odds huh?

Even if my newer smartphone was “dead” in my bag, at least I was able to take decent pics using my old phone!

Cinema ’76

Thanks to Cinema ’76 (in San Juan) for the free screening of Heneral Luna today. Best Philippine holiday event lang for me. haha~ Kahit na i hated seeing the English subs in a Filipino movie (wtf lang tlga mga ganun), pagbigyan na libre naman eh.

Comfy pillow and sofa seats.

Anyway, the movie did not disappoint. Kudos pa rin sa lahat ng gumawa ng sine na yun. It reinforced my hatred for what Aguinaldo did and fellow Pinoys who sold out our own country.

*Rant starts here*

Nakakagalit talaga yung sarili mong kababayan magbebenta sa sariling bayan para lang madali ang buhay nila. Mas gusto pa paalipin kesa paghirapan ayusin ang sariling buhay at ekonomiya? Ano yun di ba? Mga taong walang tunay na pagmamahal sa sariling bayan!

Yung maiisip mo, sakaling totoo ang takbo ng kwento ng sine, bakit ang tanga at duwag ni Aguinaldo, di pa tinanggap yung resignation ni Luna. Di naman pala niya kayang suportahan ang pinakamagaling niyang Heneral pero gusto niyang siya ang mamuno at lumaban para sa bayan. Mga tanga.

Tapos ngayon isipin mo, may mga tao gusto Federalismo daw. Aba bakit di na lang monarkiya ang gawin sa Pilipinas kung gustong magkaron ng disiplina at pagmamahal sa bayan ang mga tao? Gusto niyong maging regionalistic? Gusto niyong humiwalay sa Pilipinas? Asan ang pagka-Pilipino niyo?  Punyeta nakakagalit lang eh. E yung gusto niyong ibenta kayo sa China ng walang kamalay-malay? Tingnan naten ano mangyari pag gusto niyo ng martial law ulet o ng anak ng diktador.

Ang problema kase yung mga hindi masa at edukado hindi bumoboto (o hindi makakaboto) tapos pagrereklamo at paninisi lang din alam. Ganda di ba?

Jusko iligtas niyo kami sa masama Lord!!! Utang na loob baket ang eleksyon ngayon parang matindi at mainit?!?

*Rant ends here*

In other news, nakita ko na naman si Mr. Epy Quizon di ko alam andun pala sha. Baket di ba? Akala ko si Mr. John Arcilla lang andun e panel pala sila. 3rd time na talaga ‘to.

Does this mean anything? Am I missing something here? 1st unexpected sighting was in 2013 (theater forum), 2nd in 2015 (extra sa TV episode ng Imbestigador) and 3rd is today (free movie screening). O di ba? Sosyal. Hahaha~

There must be some opportunity I am not taking here but I don’t know exactly what it is/was. Earlier, I could have talked to Mr. E.A. Rocha (movie producer) or Epy or even Mr. Leo Martinez after the panel Q&A (after the movie screening). An autograph signing and photo op session happened next kaso umuwi na ako.

Madali lang sila siguro makausap because it’s a small venue and close quarters lang. Why not talk to anyone of them right? Easy peasy yun as in. Kaso after the movie, I didn’t want to have their autograph or get a photo op… (Already have an unglamorous pic w/ Epy haller tenkyuberimats).

I guess I didn’t have something ready to talk to them about? Ni hindi nga ako nagtanong sa Q&A even though I felt like I should have asked something political but my tired and sleepy brain couldn’t come up with a good question. Boom panes lang. Tsaka ano na, yung travel TV show plan ko mangyayari pa ba? (Hahaha ewan ko lang, saya lang ng buhay ko eh. Whatever.)

Galing kase ako sa night shift work then I went to the venue after I ate “breakfast”. All I could do was react to anything that happened in the cinema and nothing else. I actually wanted to go home immediately after the movie but stayed on for the Q&A because nobody was leaving! 😛

Ok lang naman, forum session was fun. Also at least nakita kong the movie really serves its purpose of awakening blind and sleeping Filipinos (if not all). Thank God for the movie talaga.

So how about you? How are you spending your Saturday holiday? 🙂

Because I haven’t really written anything in a loooong time I feel like I’m bursting at the seams. So here it goes.

My Monday started off with me looking for some twisted movies to watch (because I just felt like it). It just came upon me that I’m gonna watch something twisted. It’s been a while since I’ve seen one anyway.

And so the net gave me a bunch of list to watch. I’ve seen some of the best ones in the list, skipped the ones that seemed over the top and I read some movie titles I’ve never heard of. So after checking the 3 lists  I found (and other sites), I chose to watch Ghost World first.

I was 25mins into the movie and it still bored me, then it kind of disgusted me. It didn’t feel nice to watch someone make a fool out of someone else and be mean to other people. I mean who does that? Before I watched it, the summary said something about high school graduates and social outcasts. Uhm, okay… I guess I asked for it, but I didn’t expect it to be like that.

To get the bad taste out of my mouth I had to watch something else. Skimmed through several trailers on YouTube…. cross checked the summaries and movie reviews on Rotten Tomatoes and I was like something is just wrong somewhere. Clearly my tastes and the Tomatometer don’t jibe so well. The movies I wanted to watch had below 50% ratings. Wow. Not the first time it happened so who cares about them ratings?

Anyway, somehow I got to The Good Girl after trying to watch Perfect Stranger (just because Bruce Willis is in it but then again, meh). And there it was again… that feeling of finding a gem of a movie moment when it resonates with almost the exact life situation you are in when you were least expecting it from the plot. I love those moments. Makes me feel like it’s a coincidence of some sort that I am watching it at the right time.

And so Jennifer Aniston’s movie got me thinking, if her character wasn’t married (or in any kind of relationship) then the movie wouldn’t have happened at all. She wouldn’t be having an affair and it would have been a very different movie and it’d have a very different ending. What would be the point of that film then if it was different eh? Haha~

Oh and yes that’s how you’d get to write a movie, a story or something. You base it off of someone else’s story (be it truth or fiction) and take it from there.

Now the question is, what would I do with my story?

Yep! Check out my movie review on Zac Efron’s movie >>> 17 Again.

I had a blast watching this movie. There were some hohum moments but all in all it’s fun!

And it looks like i’m gonna love 17 Again (not entirely because i love “13 Going on 30” too) !

Zac Efron

Hahay!  17 Again is set to be shown on April 17, 2009, while All About Steve is set on… well they rescheduled  it to Fall this year they say… when exactly? i don’t know yet. ^_^

yun lang masasabi ko. Thank you Jim Dale! Galing mo magbasa ng book! The best! wahaha!

Yes i just discovered the wonder of audiobooks… no more reading any book for hours.

This is how i learned Fred Weasley is dead. I never thought he would die. I only heard about Dumbledore’s death… but not of Fred Weasley. It’s so sad…. so very sad… *siiigh*

I CAN”T WAIT FOR THE MOVIES ! ARGH ! i haven’t even finished listening to the audiobook yet but i’m already so excited and can’t wait for the movies.

• July July July is Harry Potter 6
• Harry Potter 7 is split into 2, but will be shown in 2010 and 2011, why oh why oh why is the wait so looong

“>_<”

* * * * * *

Even Snape dies?! Golly and his death isn’t even honorable or whatever, for some reason i kinda like Snape for a bad guy. Argh too many deaths! It’s so sad….
