La Luna anyone?

La_luna_oscar_anzeigeOut of all the short films that I have watched, Pixar’s “La Luna” really stands out, this was shown before the movie Brave. You can watch it here and I bet you will really love it. Of course, let’s not forget the romantic one “Paperman” that was shown before Wreck it Ralph. Paper planes are wonderful and full of love!

Happy Monday to all! Have a safe and blessed one!

Now is good to care

I was just watching Ellie Goulding’s videos on Youtube when I happened to pass by one of her songs entitled “I know you care” which happened to be the OST of this movie, Now is Good.

So, my sister downloaded it for me and true enough… it made me cry. Didn’t know that this was taken from a book. Since I liked the movie so much (I’m a big fan of tear jerker movies) maybe I’ll stop by the bookstore and buy myself one. Just wanted to share my favorite scene 🙂 and quote.

Oh Les Miserables Hangover!!!

Finally after such a long time of waiting and from the first time I blogged the trailer of Les Miserables, tonight I braved to do one thing I have been wanting to do since the last time I did it. I watched a movie alone for the first time in after oh so many years (clap, clap, clap). My last solo movie encouter was not that good so I better not talk about it.

Like book reviews I am no good for the movies also. So let me just share my thoughts about it. First, kudos to the whole cast of the movie. For me they all fit perfectly for their roles. They deserve all the nominations they got from the Golden Globe Awards and I am sure there will be more this coming Oscars. I guess I don’t need to mention how Hugh, Anne and Amanda never fails to deliver their character well. But my favorite part was of course Samantha Barks version of “on my own”. Very simple yet touching, plus add the rain effect. 🙂

Being the crybaby that I am, I cried at 5 scenes. First was when Jean Valjean got Cosette and he sung “suddenly”. Second at the hospital scene where Fantine died. Third where Eponine died and Marius was singing to him. Fourth when Marius was singing after all his friends died and lastly, when Jean Valjean said goodbye to Cosette and Marius. My tears wont stop as usual so when the movie ended, my head starts to throb again. This time I am not pissed off though I can’t walk straight. I can’t blame myself for crying, haha.

Two quotes that I somehow remember but not sure if it’s right since I can’t write and I am too absorbed in the movie.
If I could close your wounds with words of love – Marius to Eponine
There’s a grief that can’t be spoken. There’s a pain that goes and goes.” – Marius

That would be it. 🙂 Watch the movie and enjoy yourself. For all those musical fanatics, make sure you don’t miss it.

50 First Dates fave scenes

I don’t know who you are Henry but l dream about you almost every night. Why?

What would you say if l told you that notebook you read every day used to have a lot of stuff about me in it?

I would say that that makes a lot of sense.

You erased me from your memories because you thought you were holding me back from having a full and happy life. But you made a mistake. Being with you is the only way I could have a full and happy life. You’re the girl of my dreams and apparently I’m the man of yours.

Perks of Being a Good Friend

“We accept the love we think we deserve”

This quote stayed with me from the first day I read it from “Perks of Being a Wallflower” by Stephen Chbosky. I am excited to see it on the big screen and “feel infinite”.

Mona, my dear friend borrowed the book and when I got it back, I was so freak*n happy! Surprise, surprise, surprise! I got gifts! Small things make my day and receiving letter from friends and loved ones never fail to make my heart pump 2 more extra liters (At times, I feel that my heart is gonna burst from too much excitement).

Thank you so much Mona, if I can change my name to Aster I would. I just love the sound of it, better than A is for Apple.

“So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I’m still trying to figure out how that could be”

“It was the kind of kiss that made me know that I was never so happy in my whole life.”

“As you enter the tunnel, the wind gets sucked away, and you squint from the lights overhead. When you adjust to the lights, you can see the other side in the distance just as the sound of the radio fades to nothing because the waves just can’t reach. Then, you’re in the middle of the tunnel, and everything becomes a calm dream. As you see the opening get closer, you just can’t get there fast enough. And finally, just when you think you’ll never get there, you see the opening right in front of you. And the radio comes back even louder than you remember it. And the wind is waiting. And you fly out of the tunnel onto the bridge. And there it is. The city. A million lights and buildings and everything seems as exciting as the first time you saw it.”

“Then I turned around and walked to my room and closed my door and put my head under my pillow and let the quiet put things where they are supposed to be.”

“Sam tapped her hand on the steering wheel. Patrick held his hand outside the car and made air waves. And I just sat between them. After the song finished, I said something. I feel infinite.”
