The Thrills and Twists of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

Friday, July 31, 2015 , , 0 Comments

During the first minutes of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, we see Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) running at full speed towards an airplane with the intent of boarding it. Then a few minutes more, he’s hanging on for dear life as the airplane takes off. Such was the opening scenes for the movie and it immediately gets your heart pumping. As the fifth instalment for the Mission: Impossible movie franchise, Rogue Nation was deadly serious in featuring next level stunts and action scenes.

Paul Rudd as Ant-Man is Made of Win

Wednesday, July 29, 2015 , , 0 Comments

I’ve never pegged Paul Rudd as a superhero. Remember him? The hunk that made us fall in-love in Clueless? It was a surprise when Marvel made an announcement last year that he was going to star in a Marvel movie as Ant-Man. Surprisingly too, the announcement was met with overwhelmingly positive response. I sincerely hoped it wouldn’t be a flop.

Most of my friends know that I work long days. I sleep very late and I wake up real early to start my day. Yes, I love being a morning person and more so when I have good breakfast to look forward to. Ever heard the saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? I can attest to that.

Check Out Spotify Philippines

Wednesday, July 15, 2015 , 0 Comments

I've been a happy user of Spotify ever since it launched locally in the country. I have it on my tablet and on my PC. So I get to enjoy good music while doing calligraphy or while designing interiors at work. My followed playlists have grown considerably long and quite recently I discovered Spotify Philippines.

Minions Treats at McDonald’s

Tuesday, July 14, 2015 , 0 Comments

Everyone’s gone Minion-crazy ever since McDonald’s announced the Minion collectibles available in Happy Meals several weeks prior to the showing of the Minions movie. I have personally experienced how people were standing in long lines just to get themselves a Happy Meal. People were really aiming to collect all 10 of the Minions collectibles!

One Last Hurrah for Magic Mike XXL

Wednesday, July 08, 2015 , 0 Comments

While writing this review, I’m listening to the movie’s soundtrack on Spotify and I know it’s making me make little dance moves on my seat. It had been a full day and a half since I watched the movie at the press screening and I still can’t help but smile sheepishly as I remember certain parts of the film. Okay, I won’t keep it a secret. Yes, yes, I thoroughly enjoyed watching Magic Mike XXL. I didn’t see the first film so I had no idea what to expect, except that I would see abs, lots and lots of abs. *blush* There were abs and a whole lot more, oh boy, a whole lot. However, that’s not all that made Magic Mike XXL worth seeing on the big screen.

Late Post: Random Things Monday v.03

Tuesday, July 07, 2015 0 Comments

How was your Monday? I woke up to a gloomy day yesterday, reluctant to drive my car out of the garage because I had just washed it the day before. Oh well. It was a rainy drive to the office and the bed weather made me want to wish for my bed all day. However, my night definitely came alive during the press screening of Magic Mike XXL but more on that later. Hahaha. My review is coming up next but for the meantime, here are the most interesting things on the interwebs.

USB Birdcage Lamp
I know I’m a grown woman but when I saw these, I really really want one. Experts say that your ideal sleeping conditions should be a dark room with cold temperature and comfy beddings. However, you CAN use a nightlamp when you get bouts of being afraid in the dark. This instance could be after watching a horror movie. Okay, okay that’s me. Don’t you agree that these are cute though?

Dark Places Coming Soon in Cinemas

Wednesday, July 01, 2015 , , 0 Comments

I’m more than thrilled that one more of Gillian Flynn’s brilliant novels will be adapted on-screen. If you’ve loved Gone Girl and was disturbed (but secretly pleased) with the movie, then you’ll love Dark Places. It’s darker and full of the suspense goodness that only Gillian Flynn’s writing can give. Starring in the role of Libby Day is Charlize Theron and she’s looking for a killer.

Opening Today: Boychoir

Wednesday, July 01, 2015 , , 0 Comments

At age 77, Dustin Hoffman has several acting awards under his belt. He is one of the most distinguished actors of his time but few know that he started out in musical studies before shifting to acting. In the movie Boychoir, he goes back to his musical roots although the actor admits to the limitations of his vocal range. He stars as the strict choirmaster Carvelle.
