The movies I watched from September to October (2009)

pinoy top sites Reading about Heart Evangelista's award winning acting in the Indie Film called "Ay Ayeng" made me sigh.  Shucks.  Why haven't I heard about this movie?  It bagged most of the awards so I guess it's a great film.

Due to recent events, before reading about the Indie Film, I was wondering about her.  Heart's a great actress. Yes, she's an heiress and all, but she's in a class of her own. 

Just as I was thinking about her, she bagged the best actress trophy and the much coveted role as Sharon Cuneta's daughter in Mano Po 6: My Mother.

I guess I shouldn't "worry" about her then. ;-)

The Movies I did get to see

I watched this movie four times. Laugh trip!  Although there were unnecessary comments, I overlooked them because there were many, many times that the audience in roared with laughter...they even clapped and loved every moment of it.

Kudos to the cast and crew!

Eugene, you deserve to have more meatier projects. I'm just so happy they finally gave you one as a LEAD actor. Thanks to Piolo!

Here's to greater projects in the future!


4 stars
Although there were some unneeded scenes, this epic film, for me, was wonderfully made.  Even if I agree with my dad and some of my friends who have seen this that this is nothing compared to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; House of the Flying Daggers; or Hero, I never regretted a single moment watching this film.  

"The Art of War" (the tactics/strategies) can be applied to daily life, including business.

(Plus Takeshi Kaneshiro...aaaahhhh...he is definitely one of my favorite actors) 

Five Stars
  • Nora Ephron is Nora Ephron (I love (almost)everything she does)
  • Amy Adams is a darling
  • Meryl Streep was wonderful as Julia Child.
Need I say more?

This is definitely a traveler's film. I love it!

I like this film.  It may not be the best there is, but I really was  surprised to like this film.  I honestly don't like the spoiled brat series much because of the cattiness (but of course, LOL) of Angelina (sorry,'re great as Angelina, but I just don't like her TV character much), but I like this film.
3 STARS  (quality) and 4 STARS  (acceptability)
Although I loved the original more, I like this film because it is wholesome and it is not entirely a remake, but a "re-imagining". They could have chosen a better song for graduation, though because even if it is a "nice" song, it's hard to remember. No "oomph!" 

Cute! (although there were a few kids that were scared of the"robot")

Whoa! "A Beautiful Mind" all over again.  The difference is: The Nobel Prize. (I loved Matt Damon's and Scott Bakula's acting...both 5 stars) He had "good intentions", but we know what those pave the way of...Anyways, it's a good film...the topic is very controversial, but it  was presented in such a way that will make it entertain you.
