I'm back in the movie game!!! Hahaha.
Been awhile since the last time I did a sort of "movie review" if you can call it that one.
Well this time, I'm not only gonna pick those that I like. I will also comment on movies which I think are either stupid or REAAALLY stupid.
Anyway, just a disclaimer. This is not a review. Just my thoughts and opinion on the films I've watched in the span of 2 weeks.
First off, the crazy, hilarious stuff which I liiiiike! Recommended!
1. Hot Tub Time Machine (John Cusack)
Released last year, this movie is about, well, you guessed it - going back in time. A story of 3 friends who are not doing well in present life decided to bond and re-live their younger days. Went back to town where they used to hang out, stayed at the same hotel, same room and party on the same hot tub. Apparently, they spilled drink on somewhat electrically charged button of the tub and things just went odd. Everything seemed normal when they woke up the following morning except that everyone in sight is wearing warmers, guys in faded jeans, girls in colored, tight-fitting...you know the 80s fashion. Yes, they're back in 1986!
The fun begins when they start doing the exact same thing they did 24 years ago - it's their only ticket to the present. But despite putting a lot of effort to re-live their wild teenage life, strange things happen that would seem to implicate their "future" life.
I personally enjoyed this movie. If you're on for a laugh trip, this should be on your list.
2. Just go with it (Adam Sandler & Jennifer Aniston)
A comedy/lovestory about a plastic surgeon (Sandler) who pretends to be married. He believes that girls are more attracted to married men and so he goes on pretending until he met a girl who doesn't want to commit to a married man. Realizing the flaw in his strategy, he asked her assistant (Aniston) to pretend as her ex-wife.
Complications start to arise as Sandler tries to unloose every string in his lies.
3. Grown-ups (Adam Sandler)
I hope I'm not making it obvious that I've been watching a lot of Sandler's film lately. :) This one's funny too. Will make you appreciate of your childhood.
4. Here comes the bride (Tagalog film)
That's right! A corny title for a very funny movie. Calling it funny is an understatement actually. The cast, story line and plot is superb. I watched this last Sunday (while the whole nation is waiting for the Pacquaio - Mosley fight) and I still can't get over with how hilarious it was. I was laughing from beginning 'til end. Not only it was directed remarkably, the lines are witty and this movie doesn't take on toilet humor.
Filipino film makers have a lot to learn on this one.
5. First Love (A little thing called love)
This is a thai movie.
The story revolves around a 14 year-old girl named Nam. (Yes that's her name. Not the thing you say when you eat something delicious - nam, nam, nam, nam, nam....) Nam is plainly simple, unattractive, dark colored skin girl. Simply put, she is NOT pretty. She's in love with an older guy in grade 10 named Shone who is hot, gorgeous and drop-dead-gorgeous. Wait, did I just say gorgeous twice? Damn yes! He's really gorgeous that I watched the movie twice hahaha! I know you hate spoilers so I'll just shut up.
I got so caught up with this movie. It will definitely remind you of your high school crushes, the friends you made in high school, the crazy things you do just to get HIS attention and how your friends support you all the way.
There was a part in the movie where I cried coz I suddenly remembered my friends and I missed them. I could see a part of me in Nam's. I can laugh with her silliness. I can identify with her innocence, on how she tried making herself pretty by putting on whitening products and buying how-to-get-the-guy-of-your-dreams kind of book.
This movie is just so nice and pretty. You better watch it!
Next, the "okay" movies.
1. No strings attached (Ashton Kutcher & Natalie Portman)
Reading from the title I'm sure you know that this is about friends with benefits. And since when did Ashton became a porn star? A year ago I watched his movie "Spread" and I can't believe that that movie is all about f****ng.
This movie is the tamer version. Not too many pumping scenes and yeah, he's got a nice butt. ;-))
2. Big Momma's Like Father Like Son
Hmmm...I'd say this movie is good enough to keep me entertained for 1hour and 50minutes.
Lastly, the "stupid" movies.
Stupid movies can be sometimes entertaining. But not these :
1. Scream 4
Really. I was just ranting about this in twitter. The most stupid horror movie of all time! I mean, come on! The scenes from 1 to 4 are all just... the same! Can't they think of anything better? Honestly, they're leveraging on how gross the victims got butchered.
2. Get him to the Greeks
This is eww... Very gross and offensive. So full of racial humor and penis joke.
That's it for today. I still have plenty to watch for. :)
