Just the title of the movie itself already makes it sound so badass. Well, that was my first reaction when I saw the poster and then my eyes wandered on over who the actors in the film were. Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Jason Isaacs and Michael Pena..all of which have created names for themselves in Hollywood. Fury is currently the number one movie in the US Box Office last week and I'm pleased to let you know that it opens tomorrow here in the Philippines.
Most people associate Halloween with a lot of frightening things. It’s that time of the year when ghouls, monsters and creepy crawlies revel in the spotlight. In Mexico though, it’s a little bit different. They celebrate Dia de los Muertos. Owing to the mixed influences in their culture, the tradition is observed in color and in an abundance of food offerings for the souls of their loved ones. It is the inspiration behind the animated movie, The Book of Life. It’s also a spectacular adventure delving deep into the Mexican lore that would tickle the fancy of viewers of all ages.
Sorry I haven’t been updating much these days. My schedule has gotten crazy busy the past week and I’m still slowly getting a grip on it. Don’t fret though, it looks like I’ve gotten things under control and I’m now raring to start my work week. Also look forward to more frequent updates from now on. :)
Can you believe that Halloween is just around the corner? I sometimes can’t believe how fast time passes. It seems only yesterday when we were greeting the New Year with fresh starts and New Year Resolutions. Soon it’ll be the holidays once again. First though, Halloween makes me think of candy too much. Maybe that’s why while browsing through Behance, this is what caught my eye.
Anyone in the waking world would easily associate the name Dracula synonymously with the term vampire. In the world of fantasy, they're the blood drinkers and are most commonly associated with pale skin and fear of sunlight. Although many other vampires have made names for themselves, few could ever match the notoriety and legend that follows Dracula's name. Most people also do not know that the legend was also loosely based on a real person, Vlad the Impaler. Dracula Untold is a retelling of Dracula's story, how he came to be and how he had chosen a dark path. Vampires have always fascinated me but since the onset of the teen vampire novels, they have been losing their edge. I expected this movie to bring back the infamy and respect that Dracula rightfully deserved. For that, Luke Evans in the starring role of Prince Vlad III, did an amazing job.

When you think of the month of October, it is not only Halloween month but also what most beer drinkers look forward to the most - Oktoberfest. While there are a host of places celebrating Oktoberfest, the place to be is at Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila. The five star luxury hotel is playing host to the celebration at the Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila's Harbor Garden Tent. The 76th Oktoberfest will happen on the 17th and 18th.

One of the most beautiful actresses who has ever graced the big screen is Rosamund Pike. She has this classic beauty and elegance that makes you just want to watch her. These are one of the qualities that made firector David Fincher choose Rosamund Pike for the highly challenging role of Amy Dunne, one of the lead roles in the movie Gone Girl.
The common misconception when it comes to the use of any sunblock product is the restriction that it should only be used during the summer months. I don't know about you but I've really noticed the climate changes that have been going on for several years. There are days and weeks that can go by where temperatures rise up to scorching levels during the daytime. The typhoons have become stronger and more erratic as well. In my part of the world, we're almost reaching the end of monsoon season and yet it was blazing hot when we were on an out of town trip last weekend.
Did you guys know that the myth of Dracula was inspired by a real person? That man is known in history as Vlad the Impaler. He was a member of the House of Draculesti (sounds familiar?) He was so called because he liked to impale his enemies. The movie that I’m most excited about this month is a fusion of history and fantasy with Vlad right in the middle. Here comes Dracula Untold.
