Big Miracle Movie Review

Monday, July 30, 2012 , 0 Comments

Big Miracle is one of those animal and human interest movies that aims to lift up your heart and be inspiring. It’s the kind that’s meant to be watched by the whole family. What’s good is that this one is based from a real story too. If you’re an avid animal lover, this movie will really tug at your emotions.

The Plot
Adam Carlson (John Krasinski) discovers by chance a family of trapped whales who were surfacing at an opening crack in a huge ice slab. They can’t go to the open ocean because of a wall of ice. In a small town in Alaska, the cold weather can be real harsh both to humans and animals alike. Rachel Kramer (Drew Barrymore) works as a Greenpeace representative and spearheads the efforts to save the whales. Saving the whales though requires a lot of funding, equipment and manpower from influential people who have conflicting nationalities and interests. They all must set aside their differences to save the whales.

Affordable Good Food at Larry & Mau Diner

Monday, July 30, 2012 0 Comments

Larry & Mau Diner is located at the ground floor of the Two E-com Center at the SM Mall of Asia Complex (the side near the IMAX theater). There are four things that make it great:
  1. The good food
  2. It’s very affordable
  3. It’s open 24 hours
  4. They serve alcoholic drinks!
It’s good to know that you can get a bite to eat during the wee hours, say after watching a great film at the IMAX theater. Larry & Mau Diner is just a walking distance away.

The Interiors
Veering away from the other restaurants owned by Mr. Larry Cortez and Mauro Arjona Jr. (Uncle Cheffy, Old Vine Grille, Chef’s Quarter Restaurant and Wine Bar, Kuse and Beurre Blanc French-Mediterranean Restaurant), Larry & Mau Diner is designed as a fast-food restaurant. Unlike the others though, I really liked the nicer and relaxed ambiance of its interiors.

Movie Preview: Diary of a Wimpy Kid | Dog Days

Wednesday, July 25, 2012 , 0 Comments

Greg Heffley (Zachary Gordon) is back! Continuing with the success of the first two Diary of a Wimpy Kid films, actors from the films are reprising their roles in this third installment of the movie franchise. As with the other two movies, Greg still continues to write in his diary about the events in his summer. The adventures of which he shares with his brother Rodrick (Devon Bostick) and his best friend Rowley (Robert Capron).
I loved the books and the I loved the first two movies. I can’t imagine Greg Heffley as anyone else. The movie is based from the book of the same title. Greg’s summer will prove to be hilarious and meaningful as he strives to catch the eye of a very pretty girl named Holly (Peyton List). I can’t wait to see more animated sketches and to laugh at the funny antics which I will look forward to in the film.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days will open in theaters on August 15 under 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

1st to Die Book Review

Tuesday, July 24, 2012 , 0 Comments

This is my second James Patterson book, with the first being Guilty Wives. James Patterson specializes in thriller and crime novels. He's famous for his creation of the character of Alex Cross. Famous movie adaptations of his novels include Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider.
1st to Die is also the first book in the Women's Murder Club series. I originally wanted to read  11th Hour but I soon discovered that it was part of this series and I wanted to start with the first book. I normally don't read thrillers since I lean more towards Young Adult, Fantasy, Sci-fi and Paranormal novels but with the few novels that I've gotten the pleasure of reading in this genre, I'm liking it more and more.

1st-to-die
1st Die by James Patterson (Women's Murder Club #1)
Inspector Lindsay Boxer of the San Francisco Police Department suddenly finds herself in the middle of two horrifying situations: The first is that she s just learned she has an often-fatal blood disease. The second is a double homicide case she s now heading up that involves the murder of newlyweds on their wedding night. Burdened with Chris Raleigh, a new partner reassigned from the mayor s office, Lindsay finds that she has too much to deal with and turns to her best friend, Claire, the head ME on the case. Claire offers helpful advice and human, friendly contact amid a job filled with violence, cruelty, and fear.
Soon a fledgling newspaper reporter, Cindy, makes contact with Lindsay looking for a career-making story. Although Lindsay can t officially comment on the case, the two women form a rapport, and Cindy joins Lindsay and Claire for their weekly meeting. When a second pair of newlyweds is murdered, and later a third, the investigation leads to a prominent crime writer, Nicholas Jenks, who has a history of spousal abuse and a predilection for kinky, dangerous sex games. With the help of an understanding assistant D.A., Jill Bernhardt, Lindsay tries to make a case against Jenks, who even had an affair with one of the slain women. Eventually Jill joins the Murder Club, and the four ladies share private interdepartmental information in an effort to track and stop the killer before he strikes again.

Of Zombies and Grimms

My scheduled weekend plans were canceled due to typhoon Ferdie. So instead of being out, I stayed home instead. While I planned to be productive, there’s just something about the cold weather that’s triggering the feeling of laziness in me. It wasn’t an entirely lazy weekend though, I DID manage to squeeze in some posts (like this one) and do some reading too.
There are two main things that kept me most occupied today though:

Left 4 Dead
Thanks to receiving this as a gift in Steam, while The Walking Dead is on break and it’s been so long since I last played a shooting game. Of course I always choose to play as Zoey, the only girl in the team.

Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises

Sunday, July 22, 2012 , 0 Comments

For me, Anne Hathaway totally rocked the Catwoman costume as soon as she was shown on the big-screen with it. For those who have already seen The Dark Knight Rises, there’s been an ongoing debate whether or not she portrayed the character very well. There’s no arguing that she looked stunning and that visor was way cool though. Being an Anne Hathaway fan, I think I’m a little biased. I’ll tell you this though, it’s good to root for Catwoman to be on Batman’s side for a change.

Here are some movie stills of Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises for your viewing pleasure.

Zalora, Online Shopping with Fast and Reliable Service

I'm a little apprehensive about online shopping because I'm a bit wary of scam sites out there. So before I do some retail therapy online, I do some background research first on the site. I'm sure that by now you've heard of Zalora.com.ph or at least you've seen their ads in blogs or social networks. I believe that I've also seen their Nuffnang ad on my blog sometime ago too. Naturally, I wanted to try it out.

Good news! Initial sign-up (meaning actually registering on the site which is for free) will give you a Php 250.00 discount voucher off your initial purchase. Take note, the total purchase should be Php 1,500.00 or else the discount won't be applicable.

Seafood Overload with Clawdaddy’s Boiling Bags

Saturday, July 21, 2012 , 0 Comments

Whenever I pass by at any Clawdaddy restaurant, what immediately comes to mind is that it’s an ideal place for a family or a large group of people to satisfy their seafood cravings without having to worry about getting their hands dirty. As the name suggests, Clawdaddy is famous for their crabs – Typhoon Crab, Butter Ginger and Sand of the Beach. However, their food selection is not only limited to seafood. When it comes to seafood though, the chef at Clawdaddy really knows his stuff. Their trademarked Creole cooking gives their dishes a distinct Cajun taste.

The Interiors

Clawdaddy’s interiors sports a dark color theme with some sort of tropical elements added to it. The effect is both cozy and a bit festive, just right for large groups of people to be dining in. The seating layout are intended for groups of 4 and more. Each table is equipped with its own cracker and buckets for the shell scraps.

The Dark Knight Rises Movie Review

Friday, July 20, 2012 , 0 Comments

I was fortunate enough to get invited to the press screening for The Dark Knight Rises at the IMAX theater last Wednesday, one day before the official release of the movie here in the Philippines. For an epic conclusion of a highly anticipated movie trilogy, Christopher Nolan sure knows how to go out with a bang. He did it. For an epic conclusion, it was very fitting indeed and yes for the first time EPIC is the right word.
the-dark-knight-rises-movie-banner

For those of you not in the know, The Dark Knight rises looks and feels like the unofficial reunion of the Inception cast. All of Christopher Nolan's favorites were there. I'm not well-versed with the Batman storyline but I do have to advice you to re-watch the first two films especially the first one just to re-orient yourself with the trilogy storyline. I'll try to write the review too with as little to no spoilers as possible (although it's very tempting to!).

The Phantom of the Opera in Manila Extended until Sept. 30

Wednesday, July 18, 2012 , 0 Comments

Here’s a little bit of trivia, The Phantom of the Opera is the longest running musical on Broadway. The masterpiece was made by Andrew Lloyd Webber and we still enjoy songs from the musical until today. Admittedly, I only heard of the musical because of the movie released before. I was still oblivious to the world of musicals then but now that I am, I can wait for this musical to Manila. Fortunately, it wont be that much long though.
phantom-of-the-opera-musical

The legendary musical will be shown in Manila for the first time starting August 25 and now recently has been announced to extend its run until September 30 at the CCP Main Theater. As early as now there is already a strong demand for tickets. Not surprising though, since it’s a musical not to be missed.

Free Android App: Flipboard

Tuesday, July 17, 2012 , 0 Comments

As a blogger, I enjoy browsing through hundreds of sites and getting inspired from countless other bloggers and interesting information found on the internet. I have my trusty Netvibes as a content aggregator on my browser but I have yet to find an app for my Android phone where I could do the same kind of browsing. This is why I decided to try out Flipboard. Well that and I saw it on my friend’s phone and saw how cool the flipping page animation was.

Tom Hardy as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises

Tuesday, July 17, 2012 , 0 Comments

In the epic conclusion of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, he employs Tom Hardy to play the character of Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. While Tom Hardy will be placing his good looks behind a mask, I’m sincerely hoping that he’ll be as awesome as the character itself, albeit in a more sinister way.  In the comic book world, Bane has been known as “The Man who breaks the Bat”. We’ll see exactly how he terrorizes Gotham city who is the exact opposite from past villains like the Joker and the Scarecrow.

Weight Loss Tips You Might Not Know of

Tuesday, July 17, 2012 0 Comments

  • Don’t eat in front of the TV or the computer.
When you do, whatever is on the screen will surely keep you distracted. In no time at all, you might end up eating more than you should and feel bad about it later on.

  • Substitute that slice of cake for berries.
Not only are berries good for you, they’ll satisfy the sugar craving that you might be having. Berries (strawberries, blueberries, cranberries, blackberries) are very high in fiber too.

Christian Bale plays as Batman for the Last Time

Monday, July 16, 2012 , 0 Comments

We’re just literally days away from the much awaited conclusion of Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies. In The Dark Knight Rises, Christian Bale dons the Batsuit one last time and plays the dual role of Bruce Wayne and Batman for fans worldwide. The third and last film promises to be extremely dark, more action-packed and with Batman’s foreseeable loss? We shall see when Bane comes around.

Movie Preview: Diary of a Wimpy Kid 3–Dog Days

Thursday, July 12, 2012 , 0 Comments

I’ve always been amused with the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books because of the cartoon doodles incorporated in the pages. Similarly, the movie is also the same. In between scenes throughout the movie, animated versions of the cartoon doodles are also seen. I’ve loved the first two movies and now the third movie, Diary of a Wimpy Kid Dog Days will be shown in August. The key plot of the movie  will be taken from the third and fourth books of the series.

The Other Boleyn Girl Book Review

Tuesday, July 10, 2012 , 0 Comments

For the past two weeks I've been engrossed in Philippa Gregory's novel, The Other Boleyn Girl. It had been on my to-read list for quite some time now. I started reading it having seen only parts of the movie and with little knowledge of the Tudor line.

the-other-boleyn-girl-book-review
The Other Boleyn Girl (The Tudor #2)
by Philippa Gregory
Two sisters competing for the greatest prize: the love of a king.
A rich and compelling novel of love, sex, ambition, and intrigue, The Other Boleyn Girl introduces a woman of extraordinary determination and desire who lived at the heart of the most exciting and glamorous court in Europe and survived by following her heart.
When Mary Boleyn comes to court as an innocent girl of fourteen, she catches the eye of Henry VIII. Dazzled, Mary falls in love with both her golden prince and her growing role as unofficial queen. However, she soon realizes just how much she is a pawn in her family''s ambitious plots as the king''s interest begins to wane and she is forced to step aside for her best friend and rival: her sister, Anne. Then Mary knows that she must defy her family and her king and take her fate into her own hands.

Rise of the Guardians Movie Posters

Monday, July 09, 2012 , 0 Comments

I’m really excited for this movie because of the way they’ve re-imagined characters known to every child in the world. The movie Rise of the Guardians tells of the story of Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman, and Jack Frost with unknown powers as they battle with Pitch, an evil spirit who wants to take over the world. The Guardians themselves must work together to protect the hopes and imagination of children everywhere.

Here’s a look at the movie posters for the movie and the one I like best is the one for Santa Claus. Gone is the famous red suit and instead it’s an altered and more Goth version of it. [CLICK ON THE PHOTOS FOR A LARGER VERSION]

Quick Fix for Pimples

One thing that I hate is getting a pimple right before a big event. Thankfully, I’m long past the acne-sprouting years and I’ve been spared from outbreaks but pimples do pop out now and then. This was what I used to do for a quick fix for pimples, I just dab on a bit of PanOxyl Benzoyl Peroxide and pray that the pimple will miraculously disappear the next day. Well, the commercials are wrong, it’s either the pimple just swells up a bit more and gets worse.

Movie Preview: Oz the Great and Powerful Teaser Poster

Friday, July 06, 2012 , 0 Comments

I think most of us are familiar with the story of Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz right? As I type out these words I kept hearing the tune of “…we’re off to see the wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz..”. Walt Disney Pictures has just released the teaser poster for its upcoming movie called Oz the Great and Powerful directed by Sam Raimi. Unlike the Oz story that we all know about, the movie will be about the origin of the character – the Wizard of Oz himself and how he came to be in the land of Oz.

[MOVIE POSTER AFTER THE JUMP]

The cast includes James Franco (Oscar Diggs), Rachel Weisz (the witch Evanora), Michelle Williams (the witch Glinda)and Mila Kunis (the witch Theodora).

The Spider-Man Lizard

Wednesday, July 04, 2012 0 Comments

Have you seen The Amazing Spider-Man yet? The past few days it has reigned in all the local cinemas and if you haven’t seen it yet, you might want to read my review of the movie first just to entice you a bit more. On another note (well related to Spider-Man still), here’s a bit of nature trivia.

spider-man-lizard

spider-man-lizard

Did you know that there’s a replica of Spider-man in nature? The Mwanza Flat Headed Agama lizard has the same markings and coloring as Spider-Man has. Could this be where Stan Lee got the inspiration for the character? Coincidentally enough, Spider-Man’s nemesis in The Amazing Spider-man movie is The Lizard/ Dr Curt Connors played by Rhys Ifans. Cool huh?

Movie Preview: Epic

Wednesday, July 04, 2012 , 0 Comments

I saw the trailer for the new 3d animation EPIC when I attended the premiere for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. The visuals were certainly pleasing to the eyes with all the various shades of green and veridian on-screen. I kept trying to guess what the movie was about while being captivated by the soundtrack. In case you’re wondering, the song is What if the Storm Ends by Snow Patrol. I just wish they had thought of a better title though. The word alone just brings into light a slew of expectations, well I hope it lives up to its title.
Photobucket 
Epic is a movie created by the filmmakers and writers of Ice Age and Rio, both movies that I really liked. With an impressive resume, I can’t help but look forward to this movie. Epic is about a teenager who was magically transported into a hidden forest where she discovers a raging battle between the forces of good and evil and those who are trying to protect nature and hundreds of lives. The voice cast includes Steven Tyler, Beyonce Knowles, Colin Farell, Amanda Seyfried, Josh Hutcherson, Pitbull, Johnny Knoxville, Jason Sudeckis and Blake Anderson.

True Blue Filipino Food Favorites at Matutina's Restaurant

Wednesday, July 04, 2012 0 Comments

Our lunch stop for the last day of our company outing was at Matutina's Seafood House in Dagupan City. After spending some time on the road somewhat a bit lost, all of us were particularly hungry when we arrived. The quaint and small restaurant serves Filipino food to its hungry customers. As soon as we stepped in, the restaurant was packed. It's a good thing that we've already called ahead to make table reservations. Best to do this too as the restaurant really gets a lot of customers especially at peak hours. For me though, the fact that there wasn't any empty table left on sight meant that they served good food and my stomach rumbled at that.

matutinas-dagupan-city-seafood
Our long table was soon filled with food and pretty soon everyone got busy trying out the dishes that our boss pre-ordered for us. It was really a traditional Filipino feast.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Movie Review

Tuesday, July 03, 2012 , 0 Comments

When I read Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith around two years ago, it was highly recommended by a friend and I was extremely intrigued by the storyline. After all, a rogue President was a very interesting book plot. The movie of the same title made me think back about how much I had loved the book.

Movie Plot


The 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln (Benjamin Walker) holds a secret written in his journal. While fighting for the equality and freedom for all men, he was also expunging the United States of vampire legions feeding on black slavery and meddling in the affairs of free men. The movie starts out about how a young Abe learns the truth that vampires exist and the cause of his mother's death. He got into the life of vampire hunting with the intent of avenging his mother's death through the help and training of his friends Henry Sturgess (Dominic Cooper), Will Johnson (Anthony Mackie) and Joshua Speed (Jimmi Simpson).

The Amazing Spider-man Movie Review

Monday, July 02, 2012 , 0 Comments

I was initially doubtful about the reboot of the Spider-man movie franchise. I had liked the first set of movies with Tobey Maguire and I couldn't understand why fans were disappointed with it. Take note that this is coming from someone who hasn't read any of the comic books and just about the only thing I know of Spider-man was gathered from watching cartoons in my childhood.

the-amazing-spiderman-movie-review
At the opening of The Amazing Spider-man, as the movie reboot is called, I was again hopeful that for the sake of future Spider-man movies, that this would be the last reboot. Again I was coming to watch the movie not having read any of the comic books and just wanting to be entertained with the movie since Emma Stone was in it.

Angry Birds Slingshot Pens

Sunday, July 01, 2012 0 Comments

I’ve seen a lot of Angry Birds Merchandise but this by far is the one that I like the most. I love that it captures what made the game popular in the first place. The whole series has pens especially designed for each bird. The whole length of the pencil body has delightful graphics. A small model of the bird is featured as a pen topper complete with a rubber band that you can pull like a sling.
