Wednesday, April 29, 2015 , , , 0 Comments

I’m a big big fan of Anna Kendrick and I’m thrilled that she, along with the other Barden Bellas will be seen on the screen once again in Pitch Perfect 2. Have you seen the first movie yet? I suggest you do. It’s fun and very musically entertaining.

Child 44 Movie Review

Tuesday, April 28, 2015 , 0 Comments

Prior to watching the film at a special screening, I didn’t know that it was based from the bestselling novel by Tom Rob Smith. I also didn’t know much about the history of Russia and thanks to the film, it peaked my curiosity to do a little research after watching the film. The movie, Child 44 is pretty heavy film set during the time when Russia was under the rule of Stalin. The protagonists are trying to uphold the principles and ideals of their leader while serial killings are going on in their midst. It’s truly a powerful film given its historical references and how the author took inspiration from events in real life. In my opinion, it should have gotten more hype.

Coloring Books for Adults

Monday, April 27, 2015 0 Comments

Did you know that coloring books are not just for kids anymore? There’s a new trend nowadays for adults who want to unleash some creativity through coloring. For some it’s also a way for dealing with stress.
One such example is the book by Canadian artist Steve McDonald, called Fantastic Cities. It features illustrations of real cities in aerial and perspective views. The real cities in the book are New York, Istanbul, Amsterdam, Tokyo, London and much more.

Zombie Apocalypse on your Fridge

Sunday, April 26, 2015 0 Comments

Remember when magnetic poetry was all the rage and fridges wouldn’t be without them? Here’s something similar and I think will best appeal to the zombie-loving generation of our time. I saw these while doing my morning browsing a few weeks ago and thought it pretty cool. So instead of thinking of a haiku or racking your brain for a poem, you can create a zombie killing scenario on your fridge.

Beautiful Insects made from Circuitry

Friday, April 24, 2015 0 Comments

When you see a box of junk, what immediately comes to your mind? Does the creative side of your brain immediately fire up with the possibilities of art pieces? Well, while most people will just discard the box of junk, Julie Alice Chappell looked at a box of discarded circuit boards and saw possibility. She didn’t entertain the thought at first but when she got around to it, the result were these. Intricately beautiful winged insects.

Arnold Schwarzenegger in His First Ever Zombie Film

Friday, April 17, 2015 , , 0 Comments

Most Arnold Schwarzenegger movies I’ve seen had him featured as the hero who saves the world or the damsel in distress. Most have been action and sci-fi movies, oh and there’s a handful of comedies. What I’ve never seen him in is in a zombie flick. Well, we might finally have a chance in the movie, Maggie where he plays a stoic farmer who has to make the ultimate decision when his daughter becomes infected with the walking dead virus.

Step into the World of Miss Meadows

Tuesday, April 14, 2015 0 Comments

The opening scene for the movie Miss Meadows was this, Katie Holmes was walking around in a sundress holding a book and wearing tap dancing shoes (with short lace socks), I immediately noticed how old she had gotten and how completely inappropriate her outfit was for her age. Setting my comments aside, I was surprised when she brandished a gun and killed a perv right on the spot and without even losing her cool. She even tap danced away from her victim. Such is the peculiar ways of Miss Meadows, a temporary teacher by day and a part-time vigilante.

Furious 7: The Great Send-off

Monday, April 13, 2015 , 0 Comments

When the 2001 movie, The Fast & the Furious became a sleeper hit, the names Dom, Brian and Letty became synonymous with one of the biggest and successful movie franchises of all time. Across the span of six films, we’ve followed what had become of Dom’s crew and how the movies eventually became intertwined stories of their lives, fast cars and heists. With the release of the seventh and final film, it is with bittersweet sentiments that fans all over the world say goodbye not only to the franchise itself but also to Paul Walker, one of the main characters of the films.

See Jennifer Lopez in Docu-Concert, Dance Again

Friday, April 10, 2015 , , 0 Comments

Mention Jennifer Lopez and what immediately comes to mind are the shimmery, glittered body hugging dresses, killer dance moves and her trademark J-Lo hair. In the docu-concert Dance Again, we get to see what went on behind the scenes as she went on her first world tour travelling 65 cities and five continents. The movie will also let viewers into an intimate look at Jen’s personal life as she take her two young kids in tow on her world tour. We get to see her as a doting mom aside from being a world-class performer.

Lessons from the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Thursday, April 09, 2015 , 0 Comments

The Charm

When I got invited to the press screening of The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, I sadly had to decline because of a prior commitment but it also got me curious about the first movie of the franchise. During the Holy Week break, I had The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel on repeat (yes on repeat) while doing some calligraphy projects. I guess you can already tell that I liked it. Not only liked it, but I loved it.

Nick Jonas in Careful What you Wish For

Wednesday, April 08, 2015 , , 0 Comments

I distinctly remember seeing Nick Jonas in the Disney movie, Camp Rock and back then he was just behind the shadow of his brother, Joe. Joe had been the brother girls were screaming for at that time. Fast forward to now though, Nick Jonas has even gone to greater lengths. He now has a budding acting career and is the star of the movie, Careful What you Wish For. Oh and get this, he’s now very buff and in this movie, he’ll be acting in a very adult role.

2015 Book Review #5 – Temple by Matthew Reilly

Sunday, April 05, 2015 , 0 Comments

I had wanted to read an adventure book when I chose Temple by Matthew Reilly. The plot sounded promising and there have been mention of Incan lore, I was immediately curious. Even more curious is that the story seemed to revolve around a mysterious manuscript. The plot was interesting enough to lure me in. Temple was in some ways what I expected it to be and in some ways, a disappointment. Let me tell you why.

One Last Ride for Family in Fast & Furious 7

Friday, April 03, 2015 , , 0 Comments

I had been a huge fan of the Fast and the Furious franchise since it became a sleeper hit in 2001. Since then, it had been 6 successful films to make the characters of Dom & Brian synonymous with fast cars and high stakes. Successful though as the film franchise had become, we sadly have to see its end. The prevalent theme throughout the films are not only the fast cars and the lives of outlaws but also the strong support between the characters as a family. They will all go for one last ride in the seventh and final film, Fast & Furious 7.

Happy April Fools' Day!

Here we go into the fourth month of the year and the last work day for this week. My body is clamoring for the break. Although I'll be working through the Holy Week break, I will still welcome the thought of doing it in the comfort of my own home and in my jammies nonetheless. Smile with tongue out
