    Brooklyn (2015)

    I’ve liked Saoirse Ronan as an actress and finally gotten around to watch this film. The movie absolutely nailed what it felt like for me when I moved from SG to AU, how much I missed Singapore and how I wanted to go back, and how slowly Melbourne started to feel like home too (and…

  • Lessons from the Spiderverse

    Lessons from the Spiderverse

    It was a very enjoyable movie. I’m not going to write a review (there are many out there). But if there was one thing that resonated with me the most was Peter B. Parker’s answer to Miles’ question: “How do you know you’re ready?” You don’t. It takes a leap of faith. A leap of…

  • Ruby Sparks

    Ruby Sparks It isn’t always that C and I get to watch a movie that makes one feel bothered. Something that gives you all kinds of feels that you have to talk about it after watching, and whatever it is that you felt while watching doesn’t disappear after the credits. Ruby Sparks is one of those movies, and unexpectedly so.…

    Manila Kingpin: The Asiong Salonga Story

    I just watched the movie “Manila Kingpin: The Untold Story of Asiong Salonga” with C and… I didn’t get to see the trailer so from what C told me, I thought it was a comedy (gangsters shooting each other on kalesas). So when we were buying tickets, I was saying it’s probably going to be…

    Waiting for Forever (2010)

    I was watching Waiting for Forever (2010) last night (loved the music; the dad was the only real interesting character and I would have rather watched a movie about him and his wife) and aaaaaa— Scott Mechlowicz has the prettiest eyes and the longest eyelashes. And he looks so young. I remember watching EuroTrip but…

  • Hua Mulan (2009)

    Hua Mulan (2009)

    Wuxia movies, hm. I never knew I’d get into these. :P I watched the 2009 live-action movie Hua Mulan last Monday and while there were quite a lot of things the film lacked, or I would much rather have seen (but perhaps only a TV series would have had time to explore, such as Mulan’s…

  • Long-distance relationships?

    Long-distance relationships?

    I watched Going the Distance with my mom this evening and, omgawd, I didn’t know it was such a raunchy-funny kind of movie. Not in a bad way, because it really sent me reeling with laughter. The storyline is ‘meh’ — common and even overused — but if you want something for the laughs and…

    “forgotten” doesn’t mean “lost”

    Thanks to Kasey, I was able to watch this deleted scene from the cut version of the movie Leon the Professional (1994). One thing led to another and I ended up reading the original script. I don’t remember if this was in the movie (the last time I’ve watched it was ages ago), but there’s…

    Stop-motion in a world of books

    Vicky shared this stop-motion video at her blog: Wasn’t that just awesome? :D You have to also visit and look at the production stills. It would be fantastic if I could do something amazing like this with my friends. The “stage” and everything was just…wow. The video was just so brilliantly made.
