Movie Review: Fast and Furious 7

I really wished there was a day between Saturday and Sunday or than maybe I could take a breather from all the humdrum and just reflect and star gaze without a care in the world or better yet immerse myself in a retreat and just reflect, Just lost in my own stream of emotions and aimless thoughts just being forlorn in solitude as the words seem to recapitulate on my existence.

Anyway, I should stop all these lingering thoughts and just focus ahead on what’s coming up right? ๐Ÿ™‚ Let not such hurdles block your sunshine and instead they should make you see the silver lining in all these things. Just strive to be better and keep your mind on the end goal. Remember nothing in life happens without sufficient reason and perhaps everything has a purpose. To make you better? To make you stronger? or To make you reach for your dreams more. ๐Ÿ™‚ Sorry for all the ramblings, because I wanted to catch up on this much talked about movie I invited P to watch this movie with me and boy we definitely weren’t disappointed. To catch a general drift of what I’m talking about here’s a quick trailer of the movie.

Movie Review: That thing called Tadhana

Since it has been the talk of the town for weeks now since it came out at the cinemas. People couldn’t stop commenting on how true to life the scenes were and how well everything was well played and portrayed on the silver screen.

Movie Review: Taken 3

Can I just say first and foremost that I am such a fan of Taken the movie since it began. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have watched it from the start until now the excitement in me never seems to wane whenever I hear that another sequel to this much loved, adrenalin filled and much talked about movie will come to hit our cinemas since it’s sure to be a hit!

We almost didn’t get a chance to watch it during its premiere night last January 14, 2014 just a day before the much awaited and highly anticipated Papal Visit to our country wherein hordes of people would surely line up and march along the streets of Manila just to have a glimpse of Christ’s Vicar here on earth.

As I was watching the Pope from our television as he deplaned from the Sri Lankan aircraft I began to feel goosebumps all over! You see he has that effect on the people, that renewed hope amongst us that despite the poverty and all the tribulations we are afflicted with on a daily basis. God still loves us and will cross borders and the widespread oceans just to see us and make us feel we are loved through his messenger the “Pope”.

Okay my emotions are getting the best of me again, going back to the topic here’s a quick trailer of the movie for you to watch and get adrift on what I’m blabbing about.

Movie Review: Beauty in a Bottle

Everyone is all into beauty these days right? I mean who wouldn’t be? With all those glaring 6 pack washboard abs, taut flat bellies without scars nor stretch marks, porcelain/ alabaster skin, poignant noses, and killer smiles of our favorite celebrities plastered all over EDSA and in our movie screens and social media feeds.

What got me watching this movie is because it actually pokes fun at the deepest insecurities women feel nowadays especially when it comes to how they look on the outside. Is it really superficial beauty that matters? Watch and find out ๐Ÿ™‚

Movie Review: If I Stay

I have always wanted to watch this film since everyone especially my girl friends had been gushing about it the minute it hit the cinemas. The plot was based on a best selling novel and it appeals to the emotions of the same audience of the book TFIOS.

It also tackles issues and emotions that areย  realistic and hard to bear for the faint of heart. It was just recently that I finally found the luxury of time to sit back and relax while watching this tear jerking movie.

To get a general idea I attached here the trailer of the movie. Enjoy watching ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you watch it for yourselves too it’s a neat movie! ๐Ÿ™‚

Movie Review: Mockingjay Part 1

I have read and pored over all the pages of this much talked about trilogy of the Hunger Games book by Suzanne Collins. I was hooked from the first novel and read on until I finished all three books.

I have also watched The Hunger Games to Catching Fire to the first part of the last book Mockingjay Part 1.ย  So when I heard that this movie was about to hit the cinemas I was eagerly waiting again in the front line to catch a glimpse if it’s cinematic portrayal would do justice to the book.

For those who haven’t watched the trailer yet. Here’s a quick one for you.

Movie Review: Big Hero 6

I will try my best to decrease my back log with regards to blogging since another week is fast approaching and my weekend is coming to a close in a couple of hours. I still have a lot to do on my itinerary so I better get a head start on those pertinent matters. This coming Tuesday I will be gracing a VIP Screening for the movie You’re not You and will make another movie review soon up on my blog.ย  Yey! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for my ticket Ms. Jing! :).

Check out her website at: Amazing Jing.

Moving on, last Tuesday Arvin (My classmate in school) and I decided to jog around the block to keep ourselves in shape since we haven’t been very keen on hitting the gym and getting ourselves healthy lately. So moving on after work we met up at Track 30 to get started on our stretching exercises and then set to circle the track to the best of our capacity. Then we headed off to Fitness first where he shared his diet regimen with me there.

I soon afterwards decided to freshen up a bit since P and I were supposed to watch this new cartoon movie called Big Hero 6. To catch a general idea of what I’m conversing about here’s a quick trailer of the movie.

Movie Review: John Wick

It has been a crazy fun filled week for me this past week and since I was busy for the past few days since I was on duty for the whole week. I will catch up on my blogging duties today since today is my rest day! ๐Ÿ™‚ Whohoo! ๐Ÿ™‚ Finally! ๐Ÿ™‚ Time to catch up on my much well deserved “zzz’s”,ย  hit the sack and succumb into a deep slumber to re energize. ๐Ÿ™‚

So without further ado, let me start off my slew of over due blog posts for this week with a movie review. Yes! ๐Ÿ™‚ You read me right, another movie review! ๐Ÿ™‚ Because what better way to unwind and relax than watching a full blown action packed story which will keep you glued to your seats and definitely keep you on the edge anticipating every clever move that they would execute along the course of the two hour movie.

To be honest, I wasn’t really that enthused when I heard of this movie unlike other new and upcoming movies which were made into books that I have read before. All my hesitations probably stemmed from this “uncertainty” sinceย  I did not have any idea as what to expect from this film.

I just knew that Keanu Reeves would be the Main Protagonist and that this would be an adrenalin fueled movie due to it’s action packed scenes.

P wanted to watch it so despite my hesitations I decided to concede and watch the movie with P ๐Ÿ˜€ To catch a general idea of what I’m talking about. I attached here in this blog post a trailer of the movie. Enjoy!
