    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…

  • A hobbit

    A hobbit

    I I had a great night watching The Hobbit with C and some friends. I hardly remember anything from LOTR since I have never re-watched it since the first time it was screened in cinemas, and never read the books either. I enjoyed The Hobbit more compared to my experience of fear while watching LOTR.…

  • “And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.”

    “And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.”

    I watched The Perks of Being a Wallflower yesterday and…it was okay. Just okay. Maybe the problem was that we just watched Ruby Sparks a week ago and it was amazing and this one was just okay. We regretted spending P190 for the tickets though because it would have been fine as a movie watched at home. …

  • 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. We…

  • Waiting for Forever (2010)

    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…

    “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…
