Teenager Tom Riddle is soooo cute ~ ~ ~

"Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort's defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, the well-connected and unsuspecting bon vivant Professor Horace Slughorn, whom he believes holds crucial information. Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts. Harry finds himself more and more drawn to Ginny, but so is Dean Thomas. And Lavender Brown has decided that Ron is the one for her, only she hadn't counted on Romilda Vane's chocolates! And then there's Hermione, simmering with jealousy but determined not to show her feelings. As romance blossoms, one student remains aloof. He is determined to make his mark, albeit a dark one. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again. "  — Yahoo! Movies

Dada and I watched this in TriNoma, hoping that we could get the best seats –— the lazy boys. Unfortunately, we came in a bit late and six out of seven movie houses showing HP6 were jam-packed!!! Each of the ticket counters had people falling in line maybe for up to 20 meters. It took us about 30 minutes before we got our ticket and we availed the not-so-good seats for the 2nd screening already.

The movie was long, and — like always — had more characters introduced. It's really a pain to remember names especially for someone like me who has never read any of the HP books. There were so many things discussed and it made me dizzy. I am not an HP fan and I told Dada that I wanted to watch this movie just for the sake of not being left out.

IMO, there was nothing much to be excited about but the Snape character and how Voldemort managed to "live".

Sunshine Underground ? ! !

"The sub zero heroes are back. Scrat is still trying to nab the ever elusive nut, while maybe finding true love. Manny and Ellie await the birth of their mini-mammoth. Diego the saber toothed tiger wonders if he's growing too soft and Sid the sloth gets into trouble when he creates his own makeshift family by hijacking some dinosaur eggs. On a mission to rescue the hapless Sid, the gang ventures into a mysterious underground world, where they have some close encounters with dinosaurs, battle flora and fauna, run amuck and meet a relentless, one eyed, dino-hunting weasel named Buck."   — Yahoo! Movies

We have been anticipating this movie together with PIXAR's "Up" … It had been a veeeerrryyyy long wait but it was somehow worth it. There were many funny moments. It also brought back my inquisitiveness for dinosaurs. Although, it was not as epic as the first movie and many things in this movie appear illogical.

I thought The Fallen was Megatron . . .

"With the help of the Autobots, the soldiers of NEST, and an old adversary-turned-ally, Sam and Mikaela must uncover the secret history of the Transformers presence on earth, and the sacrifices that have to be made to save it from an ancient threat sworn on returning here for revenge… an ancient Decepticon named THE FALLEN." — Yahoo! Movies

It was great seeing Shia Labeouf back in action. I like his voice and it makes me laugh when he babbles! It reminds me of the penguin he portrayed in Surf's Up [link]. Megan Fox's eyes are to be envied. *sigh*

Anyway, the movie itself was very entertaining but it didn't have the "Wow!" factor that the prequel had.

Larger than Life . . .

"When California girl Susan Murphy is unwittingly clobbered by a meteor full of outer space gunk on her wedding day, she mysteriously grows to 49-feet-11-inches tall. Alerted to the threat of this new monster, the military jumps into action and Susan is captured and secreted away to a covert government compound. There, she is renamed Ginormica and placed in confinement with a ragtag group of other monsters: the brilliant but insect-headed Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D.; the macho half-ape, half-fish The Missing Link; the gelatinous and indestructible B.O.B.; and the 350-foot grub called Insectosaurus. Their confinement is cut short, however, when a mysterious alien robot lands on Earth and begins storming the country. In a moment of desperation, The President is persuaded by General W.R. Monger to enlist the motley crew of Monsters to combat the Alien Robot and save the world from imminent destruction." Yahoo Movies

The trailers were so funny that's why I wanted to watch this Dreamworks product. There were so many things I didn't expect!

The Beverly Hills Cop theme "Axel F" revealed my age! LoL! The President reminded me of my former boss – they have an uncanny physical resemblance! XD

Although the background of each character was funny and unique, the whole plot was very predictable. So, aside from the animation and the inside jokes, there's nothing much to look at.

It’s okay to say “NO” . . .

"A man signs up for a self-help program based on one simple principle: say yes to everything… and anything. At first, unleashing the power of "yes" transforms his life in amazing and unexpected ways, but he soon discovers that opening up his life to endless possibilities can have its drawbacks" — Yahoo Movies

I can't imagine myself saying "YES" to every request people ask of me. I just CAN'T!  Anyway, this is soooooooo hilarious! It's a good come-back film of Jim Carrey. Although movie critics didn't give it praise, I still enjoyed watching it. Zooey Deschanel's clothes are TOTAL LUV! Especially her black coat with red linings. OMG! I want one~~~

2 movies in 1 go . . .

Dada and I watched two movies this week. The first one was "Star Wars : The Clone Wars" and the next was "Big Stan". We were supposed to watch "WALL-E" but decided not to because we were in Glorietta-4 and it's showing in Greenbelt.

Star Wars was good but I didn't understand the movie so much. It's fully animated and it still has the old SW feel. Anakin looks weird and is not his usual self here. It also introduces a new character but I forgot her name! She's a padawan. Yes, it's a "SHE".

Big Stan was hilarious! Nuff said. XD

License to Wed …

Dada and I were supposed to watch Blades of Glory but then we saw the poster of LTW in Megamall and we thought that since Robin Williams is here then it must be a good movie.

License to Wed has received countless criticisms over the internet because of its cheesy storyline and so-so acting. Nonetheless, I enjoyed watching it.

I was able to relate to the story. In fact, Sadie Jones (Mandy Moore) and I have so many similarities… particularly in asking opinions. She will ask her fiancé, Ben Murphy (John Krasinski), to pick an item from her list of choices but when Ben gives an answer, she will choose the other one.

It was similar to me and my boyfriend's case. I was asking him where we wanted to go and spend our date. He said he wanted to visit the Gateway mall in Cubao because he heard that it's a good place…  but then I told him I wanted to go to TriNoma because I like their movie house better. He then said, "If you already have an answer to your question, don't ask for my opinion anymore." XD
