I was invited to a press screening of Sausage Party about a week ago and knowing that it was a Seth Rogen film, I kinda had a feeling that it was going to be one of those hilarious R-rated comedy movies that his films were known for. Little did I know though. Yes, it was an animated film and it was raunchy. Raunchy is even an understated term for me. Hahaha! Ladies, if you’re going to watch this film, better put on the boyfriend pants and the boyfriend shirt, you’re in for a wild ride.
Based from the popular Jack Reacher book series by author Lee Child, Tom Cruise is back for the second movie in this film franchise. The upcoming film, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back also stars Cobie Smulders as Major Susan Turner as the Army Major who heads Reacher’s old investigative unit. Here, she is charged with treason and wrongfully imprisoned. Jack Reacher makes it his mission to break her out and to uncover the truth behind a conspiracy in order to clear their names.
Drawing inspiration from her everyday commute, author Paula Hawkins’ novel Girl on the Train had since dominated the best sellers list since its publication January of last year. Now it has been adapted for the big screen and will be shown in Philippine theaters on October 5th. Starring in the film is box office favorite, Emily Blunt.
Remember when cross-stitch is all the rage in crafting? I still have a framed angel cross-stitch up in our living room and another one that I had neglected to finish. Now where did I put that thing? Never have I imagined it as street art. It’s a good thing that artist, Raquel Rodrigo thought of it. It really provides a delicate beauty and splash of color in an urban neighborhood. Check it out.
What would you do if you’ve got an extra space in your backyard? What would you do if that space is A LOT? I would probably have an art studio put up. I’ve really been wanting that for a while now. *daydreams* Haha okay, going back. Former racing driver Michael Frohlich decided to do something else in the extra space that he has in his estate. By the extra space, I mean a whole forest of it. Yep, it’s that big! What he did though involved collecting several cars, crashing them into trees and burying them in mud.
Do you have the guts to eat the world’s hottest pepper? The hottest pepper in the world according to the Guinness Book of Records is the Carolina Reaper. It measures 1.57 million SHU in the Scoville scale. I wouldn’t even dare to try one because the hottest I’ve tried is our local Siling Labuyo and that only measures around 50,000 to 100,000 SHU. For spicy food lovers though, Paqui Chips is offering the Carolina Reaper Madness chip, soon to be called the hottest chip in the world.
I usually go through phases when I scour the Google Play Store for a game worth reviewing and writing about here. I have found one when I stumbled upon Heart’s Medicine one lazy Saturday afternoon. I’ve been wanting to play a hospital-themed time management game for a while and I couldn’t find a decent game for months. I think I was having some bouts of Theme Hospital nostalgia. Heart’s Medicine is a casual game from GameHouse that is the cureall to my hospital game cravings.
Coming fresh from the premiere of The Magnificent Seven, I was eagerly telling my colleagues at work how great a movie it was. They told me that the movie was very old. What?! Well, that was my perplexed answer. Spending a few minutes on Google told me that it was based from a 1960s film of the same title. So okay, it was based from a really old film. Normally, I don’t like western films. Gun slinging cowboys don’t appeal to me that much, plus the desert and dusty setting doesn’t help either. However, The Magnificent Seven might prove to be an exemption. From the moment that Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington) showed off his quick draw and sharp shooting skills in the bar, I was literally on the edge of my seat.
If you happen to browse through the young adult section in your local bookstore, you’ll probably notice the book series, Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, standing out from among the shelves. Why? The monochromatic cover and haunting photographs of children remind you of a classic horror movie, the kind that won’t let you sleep with the lights off at night. So it’s only fitting that when they make a movie adaptation of it, they’d chose a director with a wondrously weird and creative touch. Tim Burton is perfect for the job.
Last week and just in time to herald my very long weekend, I got to see the new Bridget Jones’ movie. I went home very light-hearted and eagerly looking forward to say goodbye to my stresses for a while. Bridget Jones’s Baby had me laughing out loud so many times that I had lost count. (edit: okay apparently it is acceptable to have that possessive form for proper nouns) Okay, having said that, let’s move on. You don’t really need to have seen the first film in order to enjoy this. Trust me, I can’t remember what happened in the first film but I do feel that you’ll be laughing more because there are many references from the first movie.
