2013 Book Review #28: Witch & Wizard by James Patterson2013 Goodreads reading challenge. I also wanted to see how a crime/mystery novel writer makes a crossover into the fantasy genre.
Brother and sister, Whit and Whisty Allgood were just ordinary teenagers until they found out that they were wizards. It was exceptionally hard to be a wizard in that society which was led by The One who was the One. Wizards were always publicly executed. When they were captured, they must escape to fulfill a path that was to be their prophesied destiny.
As was the trademark for most of James Patterson’s novels, Witch and Wizard was also fast-paced. However, he seemed to forget one key element when it comes to fantasy novels. There was little time to endear his characters to his readers, there’s also not much fun and wonder when it came to their powers. So I get it that he’s shooting for a teen audience and it requires a much more mature set of characters but I didn’t like the way that they found out about their powers and viola, it was serious business from then on.
The Heat Movie Review
Such is the contrast of the unlikely duo starring in the action comedy from 20th Century Fox entitled The Heat. Strange as the partnership may be, this was also the winning combo for the movie. Going back, the differences don’t just stop there. Even their methods, mannerisms and even their lives are like opposite poles of a magnet which is why there wasn’t any surprise that they were constantly bickering and engaged in vocal banter.
Unique Free Weather Apps for your Android Device1Weather as the default weather app on my Android phone. I liked it because it had a very minimalistic widget and it was just a breeze to use. It still is the first widget that you’ll see on my phone and on my tablet but every once in a while, I also like to try out new free weather apps available on the Google Play Store. Here are three of the most unique ones that I’ve found.
What made this free weather app are its themes. For the free version you get about two, if you want more, there are a variety of themes available for a set price. After setting your location in the app, you’ll immediately see the current weather. The themes not only look great, they’re animated too. If you want to see the weather at the other parts of the world, simply input the location and the app will do the rest.
The Top 5 Things I Want to See in Pacific RimIdris Elba may well be the most defining moment in the movie Pacific Rim and guess what? July 11 isn’t that too far away. We’ll finally be able to see Guillermo del Toro’s highly anticipated film on the big screen. I’m sure by now you’ve gotten quite familiar with the teaser trailers that have been seen in theaters, on TV and on the internet and now with the movie’s opening so close at hand, promotions are in full swing.
I’ve compiled a small list of the top 5 things I want to see in Pacific Rim. Hopefully with a film as big as this, expectations will be well met.
I know they’re supposed to be mankind’s enemy but man when I saw the latest released teaser trailer during the premiere of The Heat the other day (review coming up next), I just couldn’t help myself. I was this same way when I saw Godzilla. The geek in me was just fascinated by the creatures, well in this case – monsters. I don’t know if you’ve noticed the buzzing current atop its head when it screams. They attack so gracefully to. Let’s see if they’re as badass as I think they would be.
Ben Affleck Stars in Runner RunnerArmageddon. Oh boy that movie is STILL on me and my sister’s all-time favorite movies list. Even if critics say that Ben’s movies have been getting less than desirable reviews, still I was a fan. When he started to venture into directing, of course I was more than happy that he got so many awards for Argo.
Now he’s back in a movie called Runner Runner. Guess what? He’s starring alongside Justin Timberlake and Gemma Arterton. Justin had been making waves in the movie industry too. I thought he was particularly good in Social Network and In Time. Well at least better than the other pop stars who have attempted to make a crossover to Hollywood.
Oh these Poor Dogs
Now tell me, do these dogs look happy to you?

The Friendship, Fun and Scare Games of Monsters University
Since he was little, Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) had dreams of becoming a big scarer at Monster's Inc. To do that, he has to attend at one of the most prestigious "scare" universities in town, Monsters University. Mike studied hard and knows all the scare theories by heart however many believe that he doesn't have what it takes to be scary. Unlike Sully (voiced by John Goodman) who is a natural-born scarer and comes from a long family line of distinguished scarers, Mike has to try very hard at what comes to Sully effortlessly.

2013 Book Review #27: Paper Towns by John Green
- Unforgettable characters
- Well-paced plot
- A heart-felt story
- Good writing style
My instinct was right, Paper Towns was indeed one of the memorable books I've read this year but it wasn't nearly as perfect as The Fault in Our Stars. Yet, it was still a good read nonetheless.
For one fantastic night, Quentin "Q" and Margo set off to conquer to town and unleash a series of pranks to a number of Margo's friends. For the longest time, Q had been harboring a candle for Margo and it was like a dream come true. However, after that night, she disappeared. Fuelled by clues that Q was convinced Margo left for him, the search was on. What had really happened to Margo?
Like before, I've fallen in-love once again with the characters of Paper Towns. I especially loved Ben and Radar for their quirks. I mean who wouldn't admire and be amused by a free spirit such as Ben? I won't forget that part in the road trip where he couldn't hold his pee any longer. That was simply hilarious. Radar on the other hand was like some sort of a genius. I have a soft spot for those too. Q and Margo as protagonists were great especially during their awesome night. I couldn't help but root for them to be together in the end.
Stop Wildlife Crime
It's a sad fact that there is still a flourishing trade of Ivory in the black market despite the knowledge that elephants are extremely endangered. Buyers of such artifacts and crafts don't give a care about the "true price" that they're really paying for those goods. This is why when I saw this campaign from the World Wildlife Fund, I was moved to do my part. I am now passing the ball onto you.
First Look at Disney’s Frozen Teaser Trailer and PosterI first wrote about the next animation from the Walt Disney Animation Studios during the early part of this year? Finally the teaser trailer for Frozen has been released and it appears like a short film. Frozen is about the adventures of Anna who is voiced by Kristen Bell when she sets out to save the kingdom of Arendelle from the icy frosts of eternal winter. The person behind this is her sister Elsa (voiced by Idina Menzel). Keeping her company through her journey is a rugged mountain man named Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his reindeer Sven. Reaching her sister won’t be an easy feat, Anna has to battle the elements, mystical trolls and a snowman by the name of Olaf.
Brace Yourself for The Lego MovieLego articles in the past, so yeah I’m also guilty of being a fan. Woot! The Lego Movie revolves around the character of Emmet who will be voiced by Chris Pratt. If you’re not familiar with the name, he’s Andy from Parks & Recreation. That is one of the shows that I’ve gotten to love the past years.
Emmet is an average Lego minifigure who doesn’t have a claim to fame but was mistakenly identified as the savior of their world alongside the famous Lego minifigures who probably have more skills and strengths to become heroes than him. He has to face an evil tyrant in an epic quest. The Lego Movie is guaranteed to bring buckets of fun and laughter when it finally comes to the cinemas. The set date for its release is February 6, 2014.

World War Z Movie Review: Where will you Hide?intense.
Mankind stands on the brink of extinction as an unknown virus begins to invade city after city and entire populations. The uninfected were forced to evacuate and hide indoors. Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) was a former UN infiltrator and has been sent on a mission to find the origin of the virus which they hope could possibly lead to a cure. Finding patient zero became the priority but since entire cities and countries have all fallen, the task seemed too gargantuan. What remains of mankind floats on the sea among ships or forced to inhabit isolated islands. Gerry Lane has that one burden on his shoulders to save the world.

Why you Should Try Cleansing Oils
How to use Cleansing OilsAfter washing your face, dab a few drops of the cleansing oil on a cotton pad.
The product I’ve tried is the Celeteque Dermoscience Advanced Anti-Aging Anti-Wrinkle Ultra-Hydrating Cleansing Oil which I got from my BDJ Box Elite.
Swab the cotton on your face and neck until you’ve covered every surface of your skin.
You can wait for a few minutes and then wash your face with lukewarm water or use the cleansing oil as a leave-on overnight.

Once again voiced by Billy Crystal, Mike started out with a dream to become a Scarer at Monster’s Inc.and he studied hard to know about the scare history, theories and techniques. His dreams were put to a halt when he was forced to team up with a group of misfit monsters to stage a university coup.
Neutrogena Ultra-Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF50BDJ Box Elite was the Neutrogena Ultra-Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF50 lotion. Summer may be over in my part of the world but during our summer company outing at Pico de Loro, this product protected my skin from the harsh rays of the sun. Here’s what I don’t like about sunblock lotions:
- They have a thick consistency and are harder to apply on the skin.
- After application they leave a “whitish tint” on your skin.
- They are sticky to the touch.
- The skin feels slimy once in the water.

2013 Book Review #26: Cracked Up to Be by Courtney SummersCracked up to be by Courtney Summers. I wanted to find out what happened to the novel’s protagonist, Parker.
The author used a storytelling technique that reveals what happened that very important night little by little while at the same time showing how Parker behaves in the present.
When the life-changing event was finally revealed, a lot of moral issues came into question. I don’t understand why the author chose to use this kind of approach for what Parker decided to do. If one had a sense of what’s right and wrong, then this one is obviously in the wrong.
Despite that though, I’m giving it a 3 stars rating anyway for the clever style of storytelling and the sequencing. I would have given it another star if it had a better ending. The author had the chance to convey a message that addressed what was the right thing to do but didn’t take it. It make me really wonder that kind of morals and values kids have these days if books like this become a major influence.

Man of Steel Movie ReviewMan of Steel.
Should you go see the movie even if you’re not a fan? My answer would be a resounding yes over and over. I am not a hardcore Superman fan and I do not know his backstory by heart. Maybe that’s why I enjoyed the movie so much. I wasn’t being too critical by comparing it to the comics or the past films. However, I do know enough to appreciate the impact that this film had done to the entire Superman franchise. Read on to find out what makes this film so great.
