Movie Review: The Maze Runner

Since Annabelle the movie gave me the goosebumps and quite a fright with some scenes we opted to watch another movie this week after my work got done last Friday night.  It got me singing the lyrics of Last Friday Night by Katy Perry:

We went streaking in the park
Skinny dipping in the dark
Then had a ménage à trois
Last Friday night
Yeah I think we broke the law
Always say we’re gonna stop
Op-oh-oh

I love Katy Perry’s songs like Last Friday Night, Dark Horse, Part of Me and the likes not only does she introduce a fresh air of music to my ears it also makes me want to dance to these bouncy tunes and also sometimes appeals to our emotions like your love that got lost and got away. “The One that Got Away” one of my ultimate faves from way back since it kept playing on the radio stations before non stop so it kind of rubbed off me as well.

There’s actually a lot of books made into movies that I want to watch when I get the chance. Get your popcorn, your sodas and your lazy boy  seats at home all ready and set them all up as you dim the lights and just sit back and relax as you delve into the movie world once again. Anyway, since I haven’t pored over the action packed, thrilling book and I just heard rave reviews about this movie from my sister and my friends. P and I decided to watch this movie. To catch a general idea of the movie here’s the trailer of The Maze Runner:

Food Review: Uncle Moe’s Shawarma Hub

I usually head off to Mister Kabab for my Shawarma and Kebab fix, but I’ve never tried Uncle Moe’s before. Basing from their Menu would show that they are priced almost at the same range as Mister Kabab, so after the massage we headed out to grab dinner at Uncle Moe’s in Tomas Morato. I was looking for a budget friendly deal since we already spent our budget for the night at Nuat Thai Massage so I told Pat that my budget for the two of us this dinner was just 800 bucks below. We came across this joint called Uncle Moe’s so we decided to give it a try.

First 5k Mountain Run: Merrel Trail Run

Since we all wanted to try something new and have an ultimate adventure we decided to embark on another new thing. Guess what? We decided to climb a mountain in Antipolo. But it wasn’t just an ordinary climb, it was actually a trail run wherein you have to conquer various obstacles like some trees, the muddy slopes, the rocky formations, pass over the falls, cross some rivers and just have a great time while running since there was a time limit to the runners.

Welcome Runners!
Welcome Runners!
We look so small here

Good Times at Mr. Jones

This is one of those throwback posts from 2 years ago. How time really flies when you’re having fun! 😀 One of us already got hitched just barely two months ago.  Next thing you’ll know everyone will be talking about wedding bells, kids and all those family stuff that usually concerns grown ups. 😀

Treasure each passing day because time flies by so quickly you won’t know where all those time had gone by the time you reach 50. Laugh like there’ no tomorrow, take risks, love with all your heart and embark on awesome and breath taking adventures with your friends because you only have one life to live so better make the most out of it. I especially love my off days since I’m able to catch up on my writing. 😀

Guardians of the Galaxy: Movie Review

Guardians of the Galaxy is a 2014 American superhero movie based from the best selling Marvel Comics.

You can pinpoint the exact moment in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy that Peter Quill the protagonist transforms into a genuine movie star. It’s about five minutes in. Peter Jason Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord, a legendary (in his own mind, at least) outlaw who’s was abducted by a group of mercenaries who were all after their own interests. They eventually settled into a  planet called  Morag  and he availed of its hidden treasures.

The story plot begins when Quill’s mom is on her deathbed and as she breathes her final breath our child protagonist walks out of the hospital and gets abducted by aliens. (I’m not really familiar to this story so please forgive some discrepancies; these interpretations and writings are only borne out of my own observation from the movie.

He eventually settles into the planet called Morag and becomes a rogue outlaw who steals from people even deceiving the one who abducted and adopted him. He gets arrested after having been caught in a combat with a Green Girl (Gamora) She was created to be a secret weapon by someone called “Thanos” (Did I get this right?) Haha. Anyway, moving on they were fighting over an orb (All all powerful titanium ball which contained a velvet stone which possessed such enormous power to those who touches it). They eventually get apprehended after causing much ruckus and disruption and form an unlikely alliance with a raccoon and a talking tree (Groot) who’s vocabulary is limited to the words “I am Groot” (Well this was until the ending comes along.) SPOILER ALERT!

Anyway this certain “orb” was basically the object of the whole movie wherein the characters were becoming crazy protecting it and being careful not to let this guy called “Ronan” get this since it would be put into bad use or self serving interest. (Aren’t they all selfish?). Ronan wanted to be the most powerful God here in the Galaxy and by getting hold of the power of the orb he would be able to destroy worlds which our protagonists are struggling to prevent.

With a lot of battle scenes , action packed in betweens and also some funny and witty retorts along the way this movie is a must watch for me. I may not be that much of a Marvel fan but at the end of the day I definitely had a great time not just because I watched it with Pat but because the movie was awesome. There wasn’t a dull moment and I was at the edge of my seat for most of the movie duration.
