A tag from Paolo of blacklinemedia.

1. One movie that made you laugh.
Believe it or not, it’s Sukob! While other people in the cinema were shouting/scared, my friend and I were laughing all throughout the movie because of one of the character’s really bad acting! (Kahit sa TV commercials nga, dir in maayos umarte, hay nuku!) 😀

2. One movie that made you cry.
La Vita è Bella (Life is Beautiful). This film gives you all the funny and cheerful stuff first, but towards the end it will trigger your emotion. Just thinking of the sacrifices a father has to do to make a normal life for his child during WWII and in a prison camp…

3. One movie you loved when you were a child.
Ay, mga movies ni Matet at saka ni Aiza kung minsan. 😀

4. One movie you’ve seen more than once.
Inuulit-ulit ko lahat ng movies na meron ako. 😀

5. One movie you loved, but were embarrassed to admit it.
I’m not embarrassed to admit any movie I’ve seen. Lahat kinukwento ko. 😉

6. One movie you hated.
Bruce Almighty. I don’t like the profanity in this film. Feeling ko nga blasphemous din sya.

7. One movie that scared you.
The Ring series – the original versions. Do I need to explain why? 😀

8. One movie that bored you.
Dalawa na sila ngayon, actually. Dati yung Dr. Zhivago lang! Sobrang haba ng movie na `to. Over sa dialogue. When I was watching this film on DVD, I fell asleep twice. Pag nagigising ako, di pa rin sya tapos! At usap pa rin ng usap yung mga characters. Across the Universe. The songs were great but, there’s something in the course of events that’s just not right. I fell asleep while watching it.

9. One movie that made you happy.
Europa Europa. Felt good watching this movie, lalo na pagdating sa ending. Parang nag-adventure sa buong Europa ang central character, kahit pa giyera.

10. One movie that made you miserable.
Jú Dòu. Don’t get me wrong, because Zhang Yimou is one of my favorite filmmakers. Maybe the plot of this film was too much for me when I first saw it. Maganda sya, pero nakakalungkot na medyo nakakainis din.

11. One movie you weren’t brave enough to see.
None so far. Yabang ko, no? 😀 Basta, kahit mag-isa talaga, nanonood ako ng horror films sa bahay. Ang lapit ko pa nyan sa TV o kaya sa monitor ng computer kasi ayoko magsalamin. hehehe

12. One movie character you’ve fallen in love with.
Ngayon, si Amy Adams. Aliw na aliw ako sa kanya sa Enchanted saka sa Junebug.

13. The last movie you saw.
Outsourced. Dapat panoorin `to ng mga companies na mahilig mag-outsource sa kung saan-saang panig ng mundo.

14. The next movie you hope to see.
Urduja. Been waiting for it for months. 🙂

I’m passing this meme to: sonnet’s, hitokirihoshi, kengkay, rhapsody, misyel, witchy, and raft3r.

Mystery Unlocked

Mayo 19, 2006

da-vinci-code-movie-poster.jpgAfter much controversy, the screen adaptation of Dan Brown’s best-seller, The Da Vinci Code is in theaters now. The film opens with the bizarre murder of Louvre curator Jacques Sauniere, who, in his dying moments managed to leave behind a number of clues and messages hidden in the artworks of Leonardo Da Vinci. The French police invites Harvard symbology professor Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) to decipher the code they found near the dead body. Langdon concedes not knowing that he has already been considered a prime suspect. With the help of Sauniere’s granddaughter Sophie Neveu (Audrey Tautou, Amelie and A Very Long Engagement), Langdon is able to escape the police only to be trapped in a more intricate labyrinth. Soon they find themselves on the run from policeman Bezu Fache (Jean Reno), the albino monk Silas (Paul Bettany), and Archbishop Aringarosa (Alfred Molina). Robert and Sophie proceed to Robert’s colleague Sir Leigh Teabing to ask for his help to unravel a secret that–according to Sir Leigh–had been kept from humanity for centuries.
