Movies 2010 December 3rd week

This week's movies is another bleak list. Most marketed is Frozen. A story about 3 people stuck in a chair lift. I dont know how thrilling that is but it sounds pretty lame. Supposedly there is a filipino flick "Karera", a fantasy movie Arthur and the revenge of Maltazard and a boxing movie "the fighter." I think im better off using my citibank receipts elsewhere :)

Movies 2010 December 2nd week

A boring week lies ahead. The next movie coming to our shores is The Woman Every Man Wants. This movie is a sci-fi comedy. Here is a quote on the storyline:

"In a futuristic world where women run the show and men are secretaries and maids, a shy plastics' designer looking for a romantic woman the way they used to be in the twentieth century buys a sweet, sports-lover and always-willing-to-have-sex female robot, but... he falls for the lady of plastic who can't love." Written by Gabriela <>

Im not so sure how this movie goes but i would guess that it is one of those B movies. It sounds like a rehash of the 80's movie where they made the perfect woman from magazine photos. I guess that the movie people want to recoup some losses for showing The next three days, secretariat and monsters at the same week as the latest Narnia movie. They figure that if you dont want to watch the new movie, you'll try to catch the movie you didnt get to see last week.

Tron is coming ;) I hope it doesn't suck.

Movies 2010 December 1st week additional

I forgot to mention that The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is also showing this week. I expect long lines but im sure that it is a better movie to watch than the other options.

Movies 2010 December 1st week

Showing next week are Secretariat, Monsters and The Next Three Days. Secretariat is about a girl inheriting a stable and trying to win a horse race. The Next Three Days is about a husband who wants to break his wife out of jail after being accused of murder. Monsters is a sci-fi movie about aliens.

I would suggest watching Secretariat if you want a lazy feel good movie. The next three days is a little more fast paced.

2010 November Week 4

This past week showed all the movie houses showing Harry Potter and the deathly hollows Part 1. It seems that most of the people expected the movies to be filled so they didn't rush to watch it. Those brave enough found the movie theater to be tolerably filled with lots of good seats. Those who learned their lesson, can watch anytime during the second week of showing.

Coming up this week are:
Faster - action with Dwayne Johnson
Takers - action about thieves doing a last job
Saw 3D: The Final Chapter - horror flick in 3d (rumored to have UK people throwing up after)
Skyline - alien invasion movie
My Amnesia Girl - tagalog (nuff said)
Morning Glory - story about saving a tv morning show

I think i would recommend Faster, Takers or Skyline.

Chicken Little

This movie wasnt as bad as i thought it would be. Yes, i think it is still definitely for little children but i did get to laugh at a couple of scenes. Some scenes are boring though based on how some children in the theater started to cry or some started to run around.

Just like heaven

Im getting tired of writing on this blog. Still, i'll see what i will do about things to help you guys out with choosing a good movie to watch. Anyway, this is a pretty cool love story. Nice plot. Haven't seen one or read one like it before. ... Hmmm... maybe i'll just get trailers and put it on the site.... I digress. Anyway, it is worth watching. 4/5 rating for me.

I didnt like the ending. It may have a subtle message but for me, it was twisted and lame. The movie had some humorous moments but the ending really spoiled it for me. 1/5 rating.

The Exorcism of Emily Rose

This is amazing for a true story. The movie is not really that scary in the sense that the newer supposedly horror stories were but it was scary because it was true. It is a good story of how evil lurks today and that knowing that, you are presented with a choice on whether to sit still or change. 5/5 for me.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

All i want to say is that i want to get a hold of a Director's cut version of this movie. I guess the book is really too long to put in one movie. I wish they just made 2 movies of this book instead of cramming it all in just one. It was ok but they didnt show all the attempts of the other champions. They deleted some of the minor players of the story like the 2 house elves. The fight with the dragon is not what was in the book. It felt that a lot of things was abbreviated. I read the book so things were a little clear. My companion has not read the book and was lost in a lot of places. It was disappointing. I would rate it 2/5.

I had some apprehensions about watching this movie. The trailer seemed disappointing but i was mistaken. It was actually a really cool thriller. Up till the last minute, i didnt know what to believe. It is really worth watching. 5/5 for me.

This movie is actually more entertaining than what its trailer conveys. A supposedly true story of a female bounty hunter. It was action packed with a bit of nudity. It was a story of teenage angst and turmoil leads to a semi-controlled, destructive, thrill-seeking job dealing with the scum of LA. It was cool. The cinematography sucks a bit since it nearly made me dizzy at the start. The cinematographer was probably catering to the MTV crowd thinking that they had millisecond attention spans. Anyway, i say it is a 4/5 movie. Watch it after Four Brothers.


Talk about a low budget movie. It seemed more of a sit com than a movie. There were only 2 locations, a restaurant and an apartment. Nothing fancy. Just a plain old resto and a plain old apartment. The story revolved around the people who worked in the restaurant. I dont really have anything else to say about it. Entertaining enough to get a 2/5 rating from me.

Four Brothers

This is a nice action movie with fistfights and gun play, lots of it. The story revolves around the death of an old lady who raised 4 adopted boys who couldnt get adopted anymore because of attitude problems. It is a little more of an exagerration of what would happen if you put too much testosterone in one place. It was a nice movie though. I would rate it 4/5.

The Legend of Zorro

Zorro was set in a time where California is joining the American Nation as an independent state, a group of europeans attempt to stop it but Zorro comes to save the day. However, behind the scenes, Zorro now has a son and wife. The kid, Adrian Alonso, who played the son is an amazing actor! He was funny and an amazing athlete. Zorro and Catherine Zeta-Jones (the wife) were as expected but the son of zorro was really cool and cute. It is worth watching a second time if only just to catch this kid. 5/5 for being entertaining, not deep, mind you, but very entertaining.

The Corpse Bride

The movie is macabre, twisted, and morbid. The plot is fairly simple but presented in the weird way Tim Burton always seems to do. I cant seem to emphasize the word twisted enough but it actually turned out not as bad as i thought. If you get past the horrid looking faces and the morbid death-after death theme, the ending will not be so bad. Actually, the ending was the only thing that made it moderately entertaining. I would rate it at 3/5. If you absolutely dont have anything else to watch then go for it.

Shark Boy and Lava Girl on 3D

This is without a doubt a kid's movie. The plot is definitely for children. Some actors are too cheesy. However, it is a rare experience to watch a movie in 3D. I found the free 3D glasses a bit dark, particularly the red part. It wasnt a bad experience though. I would rate the experience at 3/5.
