Movie Buff: Horns (2013)

For those of you who are looking forward to see more of Daniel Radcliffe, here’s another one his horror movies called, HORNS. I didn’t know about this until I checked IMDB for some horror movies because I feel like watching some flicks tonight. I remember the last horror movie he starred in which was The Woman In Black back in 2012. Both films are based on a novel, btw. Though I have to say that The Woman In Black book isn’t my favorite.

Anyway, go check out the trailer below. I’m pretty sure you’ll be curious as I am.

PLOT: In the aftermath of his girlfriend’s mysterious death, a young man awakens to strange horns sprouting from his temples. Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Juno temple.

Might I also add here that Daniel Radliffe’s American accent is a bit improving. I still love his English accent though.

Sorry, Game Of Thrones :(

I’m so sad to say that my GAME OF THRONES SEASON marathon has been postponed. Don’t get me wrong, I love GOT, but How I Met Your Mother stole my time away from GOT. I’m currently watching Season 3 of HIMYM now. I love every episode! In some way, I learned quite a few about handling a relationship. It’s like HIMYM is some sort a guide for those who are confused or just really naive about love and friendship relationships. So yes, HIMYM trumps GOT this time (mainly because of that reason).

I wish my boyfriend would watch this show with me. Haha!

My Thoughts: Now You See Me

This is a very intriguing and entertaining movie for me. I like magic tricks and this film is just amazing. My boyfriend and I watched this together on Skype while he was in his patients house that day. I’m so glad he had the time for it. I know he’s busy and probably tired from all the helping he does, but watching a movie with him makes me feel like I’m close to him.

Anyway, about the film. Well, it has it’s up points and downsides. I like magic tricks, like I said. And because I like magic, I like this movie especially the robbing of the bank scene. If you know some magicians who can pull this trick flawlessly, lemme know! As for the other magic tricks, you know, the jumping off the roof of a building, well, I’m not much of a fan of that. But I do admit that I literally went “WHOOOOAAAA” at that scene. But then my reality side kicked in, and thought, well, that’s gotta be unrealistic. I dunno. ALSO, we didn’t see it coming! The 4th horseman. That’s a good twist I have to say. But the ending of the movie is MEEEHHH. Like, that’s it?! They threw in some romantic cliche at the end of the movie. Psssh. I was kind of hoping for an EPIC ending. Oh well~

Overall, I’d rate this 4/5. Could have rate this 5/5 if it wasn’t for the bad ending.

My Thoughts: Malikmata

I remember watching this movie the first time. It was, I think, some 8  years ago? I came to like it, mainly because it involves a crime. As you know, back stories like that makes it more interesting, rather than just plain old ghost story.

Rica Paralejo stars in this movie. She plays a young woman who can see and hear things paranormal. Her gift is tested when a murdered woman suddenly makes an appearance.

Aside from the crappy script of the ‘other’ people who also have gifts, Rica’s super mahinhin character and poor lighting (as usual), the storyline is interesting. It’ll keep you guessing who the real culprit is.

Overall, it’s a 3.5 out of 5 stars for me.

My Thoughts: White House

If you live here in the Philippines, and have been to Baguio, you most likely know about the famous WHITE HOUSE. My father used to tease us whenever we pass by that house every summer vacation. I’ve always wondered what it’s like to pass and stop by in front of the house late in the evening. I’m all for the thrill even if I have decided to close my third eye. I think it would be fun and at the same time creepy.

PLOT: Six contestants enter a pinoy horror-reality show to survive 5 days of haunting inside the famous White House in Baguio City. A million pesos is at stake but as the first night draws to a close and each one is being found dead, everyone realizes their lives are also on the line.

It is up to spirit medium Jet (Gabby Concepcion) to find out what exactly is going on and who is the real enemy among he many ghosts that haunt the place, which includes a powerful Black Lady who abducted the soul of Jet’s only daughter. A chance of a lifeline with no lifelines… who will survive in the end?

And here’s the picture of the White House.

It’s not that scary looking is it? I mean, you can re-paint the whole house, add a few touch ups and the house is beautiful.

My Thoughts: White Lady (2006)

Like I said, I’ve been watching most of the horror Filipino films for the past couple of weeks now. The recent one is WHITE LADY (2006) starring Angelica Panganiban and Pauleen Luna. Personally, I like the storyline. The only thing that bothered me throughout the whole movie was the acting of the “mean girls”. It’s was horrible and over acting in my opinion. Nevertheless, if you can sit through it without cringing, then I’d say, go it’s an okay movie.


PLOT: In a series of intense ghostly appearances, the white lady manifests herself to the “in” group, letting them experience her wrath one by one and Pearl is caught in the middle of it all. In the end, she and her schoolmates will discover the deathly horrifying secret that binds them to the terror of Arts Academy that is the The White Lady.

Nike World Cup 2014 Commercial

In honor of FIFA World Cup 2014, here’s an amazing World Cup video from NIKE.

I have to admit that I only became highly fascinated by the “beautiful game” 2 years ago because of our National Team here in the Philippines. As you probably know, Football is not the main sport here. Almost 90% of the population here are all Basketball and Boxing lovers. I, myself was once a basketball fan but only because of my University. Back in College, my school is one of the top contenders when it comes to Collegiate basketball. So it’s kind of hard not to get involved in activities and events such as that.

After college, I never watched Basketball again. Just a glimpse of how my former University is doing and that’s that.

My brother originally introduced Football to me. I remember he was watching a game in ESPN and I sat down on the couch, trying to figure out why the players had to endure 90 minutes of running and never getting a score (didn’t know yet the term ‘goal’). So I said to him how boring the game was and left. The next day, I found him watching another Football game and seeing him all hyped up, I decided to just give it a shot. Long story short, it was also the time when Azkals rose to fame.

Anyway, too bad my country can’t compete yet to World Cup. Football has just started here in the Philippines and have grown ever since. It’ll take years to be able to attain that kind of experience and if that time comes that we can compete in World Cup, all I can say is, WHO U KAYO! LOL.

Mt Thoughts: Matakot Ka Sa Karma (Filipino Horror Movie)

Last week was a bed weather week here in my country. And because it’s a lazy week (blame the non-stop downpour of rain), I had this terrible urge to re-watch some of Filipino horror movies online. With the occassional lightning and thunder, I couldn’t just pass that moment without “scaring” myself.

So far, I already watched 11 movies including the one I’m currently watching as of this typing.

Anyway, I really want to talk about how the movies are executed especially Pa-Siyam and Matakot Ka Sa Karma. You know what these two movies have in common? POOR LIGHTING. I get that they probably want to execute that eerie and scary feeling geared towards the audience, but seriously, WE COULDN’T SEE A THING! I had to adjust my monitor and squint my eyes to see what’s there to be seen. Instead of getting that surprised or scary feeling from a HORROR movie, you get a boring one and not to mention frustrating because you can’t anything clear.

These two movies have a lot of potential. But then again, the poor lighting sucks big time. Anyway, if you mind the lighting, and just want pure entertaining to pass time, then these two are fine.

How To Transport Vehicles From US to Other Countries

If you’re planning to ship vehicles such as a car, motorcycle, or even a boat from one country to another, then may I suggest taking a good look at mtlworld.com. From what I gather, the company is known as one of the best cargo shipping company and they are experts for providing transportation of your vehicles internationally.

If you need something else, they can also offer a customized service to whatever you might need.

This actually reminded me of my Uncle who’s planning to ship his car from San Francisco to here in my country. He plans to retire from his 10 years of work and go back home, and his car is one of his hard earned possession that he wouldn’t want to leave behind. I hope he gets the job done without spending too much though.

Movie Buff: Da Possessed (2014)

OMG. I’ve been posting Filipino stuff lately. I guess I miss watching comedy films. Good thing Vhong Navarro released another comedy flick this year. I really like his Agent X44 and D’ Anothers and it’s been a while since he did something like that.

Da Possessed is about a cowardly man unwittingly unleashes three spirits seeking revenge against the family he works for. The spirits take turns taking over his body, causing all sorts of mischief along the way.

One thing though, the movie poster design. WOW. As in, is that the only design they can come up with? Seriously?

So here’s the full trailer of Da Possessed.

Personally, from the trailer, the plot seems close to his other “ghostly” comedy movie, D’ Anothers, which is directed by the same director.
