So the Tekken movie gets a director

tekken jin kazamaI'm getting more and more skeptical about the upcoming Tekken movie. Why? Because Dwight Little is going to direct it.

Dwight Little is going to be the DIRECTOR for the TEKKEN MOVIE!

So what's the big deal? Nothing really, especially if you liked Little's other movies like Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid, Murder at 1600, Rapid Fire and Marked for Death.

What will Tekken's plot be?

According to Little:

"The film plays out as a science fiction story set in the near future, about a rebel who rises up against the Tekken Corp. to seize freedom for his people. It's a gladiator story, but the videogame has a complicated enough storyline that it provides the template for a martial arts spectacular."

Oh puh-leeeeze.

Tekken is one of the many video game-based movies that are set to come out in the following years. For a list of those movies, click here.

Atonement trailer

I'm honestly quite intrigued with the movie since it has garnered such positive reviews. Has anyone watched this yet? Anyone going to watch Atonement?

A-Team on the big screen?

a-teamJohn Singleton, director of Boyz N the Hood, is said to be preparing to create a remake of the 1980s TV hit series, the A-Team. Twentieth Century Fox is in the process of "talking" but no deals have been made yet.

As for the one who's playing Baracas (Mr. T), Ice Cube, who starred in Singleton's movie, is said to be perfect for the part. (I'm not too sure how they define "perfect", so don't ask.)

And for the plot, some Iraqi are wanted by the US government for crimes that they did not commit. The team tries to help them while running from the government themselves. Add in some oil tycoons and lasers, you have a movie I'm not too sure I'll watch.


The Hobbit is coming!

the hobbit bilbo bagginsGood news, LOTR and Tolkien fans!

LOTR director, Peter Jackson and New Line Cinema has finally settled their dispute over the profits of the fantasy trilogy. Jackson has agreed to direct two movies based on Tolkien's The Hobbit - the prequel to The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Both films are to be shot simultaneously, like with the Lord of the Rings, and the principal photography is said to take place on 2009. This leaves 2010 and 2011 as release dates for The Hobbit and its sequel respectively.

First Six Minutes of The Dark Knight!

Watch the first six minutes of The Dark Knight. This is a bank robbery scene where masked robbers led by the Joker (Heath Ledger) can be seen doing their thing.

The Killing of John Lennon trailer

This is a movie that revolves on John Lennon's killer, Mark Champman. I guess they're dramatizing everything that happens from the time he plans to kill the ex-Beatle until the actual pulling of the trigger that ended the rock superstar's life. Maybe they added a few "after the killing" story about Champman - kinda like the epilogue or something.

They should make a movie that's about John Lennon himself. Like what they did with Bob Dylan.

Horton Hears a Who trailer

This is for the kiddies and the kids-at-heart!

Horton Hears a Who is a CGI movie based on one of Dr. Seuss' books of the same title. It's about an elephant named Horton who gets everyone around him mad as he tries to protect small "creatures" that inhabits a speck of dust.

Horton is voiced by Jim Carrey and the Whos are all voiced by Steve Carell. The movie will be released on March 14, 2008.


Shine a Light trailer

Rolling Stones fans! I think all you guys are excited to see this documentary-movie that features footages of the band's recent concert that was captured by award-winning director, Martin Scorcese. Well at the very least, I know I'm excited.

Shine a Light focuses on the 2006 concert of the Rolling Stones in the Beacon Theater, New York, where the band sang some unrecorded songs that were heard for the first time in their whole career. With a group of highly-skilled cinematographers from different critically-acclaimed films, they shot the documentary in a span of two-days - every angle capturing the intensity and passion of the Rolling Stones. Oh the executive producers are the band members themselves.

Shine a Light will be released on April 4, 2008.

Qwerty is a Filipino indie movie made by Paolo Dy. It's a really chilling and thought-provoking short film. It runs around 5 minutes - pretty short but it's amazing how everything can fit in that short amount of time. The movie was introduced to me by a friend and was a bit reluctant to watch it at first but he kinda persuaded me to do so. And man...I didn't regret it one bit.

I don't really want to delve onto the details of the movie because I think that it'll just spoil everything for the viewer. Why don't you just watch it, right? It's just 5 minutes and I'm positive that you won't regret it at all!

Spiderwick Chronicles -- A new children's movie

I haven't really read the books but Spiderwick Chronicles have had nice reviews about it. From what I've gathered, Spiderwick Chronicles is one of those fantasy children stories - which was probably released after the Harry Potter hype. I mean, I've only seen the books some time after several Harry Potter books have been out and became popular.

So what is Spiderwick Chronicles about?

Jared Grace moved from New York with his twin brother Simon, sister Mallory and their mother to some secluded old house owned by their great-great-uncle Arthur Spiderwick. Strange things start to happen as soon as they move in, like things disappearing or accidents suddenly happening, and they all blame Jared for everything. The three children decide to investigate these strange occurrences that is happening every day and they find out about the secret of the Spiderwick house and the different creatures that live there.

I think that this might be a better movie than
A Series of Unfortunate Events. The story seems to target children more with it's fantastic plot and all. It might be a good watch, so if you have kids, or is a kid-at-heart, try to catch the Spiderwick Chronicles on February 15, 2008.

Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian trailer

I liked the Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe movie, so I think I'll definitely watch Prince Caspian when it comes out. The story itself is nice, as the siblings once again goes back to Narnia, this time helping a prince in distress.

The movie is set to be released on May 16, 2008 in the US.

Wednesday, December 5, 2007

The Dark Knight trailer

I've only read half of the graphic novel because I got bored. I'm not really sure if I want to watch Batman: The Dark Knight when it comes out - never really was a fan of Batman. Well, it does look nice though, so I still have to see whether I'd like to watch it or not. Anyway, here's the trailer:

10,000 B.C. trailer

10,000 B.C. -- A young hunter is out leading an army across the wild and untamed desert where he has to battle mammoths and saber tooth tigers to save his tribe's princess from an evil warlord.

Well, that's practically the gist of the whole movie but it sounds exciting, doesn't it? I mean, war movies these days are all going further and further into time. Makes me wonder when the next time frame will be.

I'm so looking forward to this movie. It's a fantastic one since there's a lot of inconsistencies within the story and history itself - so it's interesting to see something like 10,000 B.C. Watch the trailer to see if this interests you too:

So has anyone seen Mirrormask yet? It's the movie adaptation of Neil Gaiman's novel. The story is wonderfully fantastic. I mean, it is Neil Gaiman we're talking about here. If you haven't really seen the movie, or read the book for that matter, Mirrormask is kind of like an Alice in Wonderland story.

Helena comes from a family of circus entertainers but sometimes she wishes to be part of the
real world. She then blames herself after a big fight with her parents and her mother suddenly getting sick. On the night before her mother gets operated on, Helena falls asleep and dreams that she is in another world full of grotesque creatures and has two queens: the white and the black queen. As Helena discovers that the white queen is sick and the only thing that can save her is an instrument called the Mirrormask, Helena does everything in her power to find the mask. Deeper into her dream, Helena starts to wonder if the world she's living in is becoming more and more real the longer she stays.

I like the movie because it realistically depicts the world Neil Gaiman created. The story itself is simple but deep. I suggest that you watch it because it really brings the book to life. If you've never heard of the movie, now's the best time to check it out:

And I thought it was a chick-flick...

With a title like Cloverfield, I really wouldn't have had given it much thought until I read that Cloverfield is the elusive 1-18-08 movie by J.J. Abrams. Will it be one of the best monster movies ever made? Will it suck? Will it look like another Godzilla rip-off?

I'm not sure if I want to watch it. I probably will though. Roughly 2 more months to go!

The Eye -- Another Remake

Here we have another Asian horror movie remake. (Can't Hollywood ever come up with their own horror movie these days?) The Eye stars Jessica Alba and it will be released next year, February 1, 2008.

So what is the movie about? The Eye is about a woman who receives an eye transplant. Apparently, the eye that she receives is cursed and this causes the woman to see things differently. Meaning, she can see dead people and stuff.

The original The Eye (Jian Gui in Chinese) was pretty scary. As the tradition of Hollywood horror remakes (at least on my part), they aren't even half as scary as the original ones. Which really sucks, you know? Anyway, before I end up ranting more, watch the trailer and see if you're willing to spend some money on this remake or not.

Maggie Q = Silver Fox?

maggie qI've just read that Die Hard actress Maggie Q is one of the top choices to play the character Silver Fox in the 2009 movie, X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Backtrack a bit. It has been confirmed that Silver Fox is included in the prequel. What's unconfirmed is
who's playing her...but Maggie Q is the top choice apparently.

Who is Silver Fox?

Silver Fox is Wolverine's love interest. More like his
ex-girlfriend or something to that note. I don't really know how their little relationship started but Silver Fox is a CIA-agent-turned-terrorist in the comic's story. She's killed by Sabretooth by the way.

Okay, so does knowing that Silver Fox is in X-Men Origins: Wolverine makes you want to watch the movie more? Or is it Maggie Q that extra push to make you want to watch the movie today? I personally don't find her pretty and I'm looking forward to the movie mainly because Wolverine's my favorite X-Men (and Hugh Jackman's a plus).

Thoughts and opinions?

National Treasure 2 Trailer

I'm so looking forward to watching National Treasure: Book of Secrets. I loved the first National Treasure movie, so I'm pretty confident that I'll love the second movie too. Book of Secrets is about..well..a book of secrets. It's a book that only the presidents of the United States can read. Ben Gates (Nicholas Cage) needs to get his hands on this book in order to prove his great-great grandfather's innocence in Abraham Lincoln's death.

National Treasure: Book of Secrets will be released on December 21, 2007. Mark your calendars, people!!

Naomi Watts in Angels & Demons?

naomi wattsIn case anyone's looking forward to the movie adaptation of Dan Brown's Angels & Demons, Naomi Watts might play opposite great actor Tom Hanks. The movie is set to be released May 15, 2009 because of the setback caused by the recent writers' strike.

Personally, I liked Angels & Demons than The Da Vinci Code. The books, of course. Although I'm kind of skeptical about the Angel & Demons movie. I didn't really enjoy the DVC movie. If it weren't for Tom Hanks, I'd hate the movie. I think Tom Hanks was the saving grace of The Da Vinci Code.

I don't really care much about people saying that the book/movie is sacrilegious. It's their opinion and their
faith. I take the movie as a movie, nothing personal. Then again, there isn't anything to be taken personally in the first place.

Oh well. I might watch Angels & Demons either for the sake of watching it, or because it got good reviews, or because I already watched DVC. Keyword:

JLA, Tim Burton and Dragon Ball

justice league of america, jlaAs I haven't really seen any new movie, and neither could I remember anything that I've seen before right now, I'll just give a brief movie-related news. (It's all about movies these past few entries, no?)

Fans of Tim Burton, better get ready. Burton and Disney is collaborating to create a new movie:
Alice in Wonderland. Yep, that's right. The movie will be shot in a way similar to Beowulf

For those of you who are waiting for the upcoming
(meaning it's in 3-D), and with Tim Burton directing it, I'm sure it won't be anything short of wonderful.Justice League of America (JLA) movie, rumor has it that Adam Brody will play The Flash, Common will be Green Lantern, Teresa Palmer as villainess Talia Al Ghul and Michael Gough might do a repeat for Alfred. Good news regarding the cast, or not?

By the way, if you want to see the two lead characters of the upcoming Dragon Ball movie, check them out here.

Forbidden Kingdom Trailer!

Here's the trailer for the upcoming Jet Li and Jackie Chan movie, The Forbidden Kingdom. It's set to be released next year, April 18, 2007. If anyone doesn't know what the movie is about, sucks. Lol yeah well Forbidden Kingdom is a movie about a teenager who discovers an ancient artifact and through this, the kid goes through an adventure set in ancient China.

Is anyone looking forward to watching The Forbidden Kingdom?

Tekken Movie (2009)


Anyone looking forward to watching this?

Tuesday, November 13, 2007


beowulf 2007 movieIn just a few days, Beowulf will be shown in theaters. Is anybody looking forward to watch Beowulf? I know I am. The reasons? Well one, it is a movie about one of the best mythological stories ever and two, Angelina Jolie is there. Yep, I'm Angelina Jolie's fan and I can't wait to see her computerized nude scene. If you haven't heard or read anything about it yet, most of the movie is CG.

Anyway, Beowulf, if you're not aware, is the story of a warrior-hero named Beowulf who has slain the demon Grendel. With Grendel's death, the wrath of his deadly and seductive mother falls upon Beowulf. She wants revenge against the slayer of her son and she wants it bad.

Beowulf, I forgot to mention, is an Anglo-Saxon epic poem that probably came to existence at around 700 AD. Despite it being of Anglo-Saxon origins, the plot and characters heavily relies on Danish and Swedish influences.

Beowulf has a stellar cast lined up:

Ray Winstone
- Beowulf
Anthony Hopkins - Hrothgar
John Malkovich - Unferth
Angelina Jolie - Grendel's mother
Brendan Gleeson - Wiglaf
Crispin Glover - Grendel
Robin Wright Penn - Wealthow
Alison Lohman - Ursula

So is anyone else looking forward to watching Beowulf? I think it'll be a really great movie!

New Hitman movie

Here are some stills for the new movie, Hitman, starring Timothy Olyphant. Hitman will hit the theaters on November 21. It's a movie based on a video game of the same title about a genetically-engineered assassin known only as Agent 47.

I don't think I'll be watching this one, so those of you who are anticipating this movie, tell me what you think of it!

Movies based on Video Games?

devil may cryI recently found a blog that lists the different video game adapted movies that are in the making. I'm not sure if these will be good though, since these kinds of movies have had a history of destroying the game itself.

It's pretty hard to assimilate video game characters into movies, unless of course, they use CG. I guess it's due to the fact that the actors they get to play a character looks anything
but the character (with the exception of Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider). Plus, the plot of the movies somehow manage to destroy the fans' image of their favorite video games. I dunno, but almost all of the video game adapted movies suck IMO. What do you guys think?

Some of the upcoming movies are:
Alice (2008)
Alone in the Dark II (2009)
Area 51 (2009)
Assassin's Creed (TBA)
Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars (2009)
Castlevania (Late 2008 or Early 2009)
Citizen Siege (2009)
City of Heroes (2010)
Clock Tower (2008)
Cold Fear (2008)
Death, Jr. (TBA)
Devil May Cry (2010)
Doom 2 (TBA)
Driver (2008)
EverQuest (TBA)

300? Nope, 301.

300300 -- That is, if you include King Leonidas of course. A lot of people have seen 300 and it's either they loved it, hated it or remained neutral when it came to their opinions about it. It's undeniable though that the action scenes are something that remains etched inside your head even after several months after watching the movie.

Yeah, the action scenes. Plus the really great CG created especially to fit the theme of the movie: dark and foreboding. It's something that can be fully appreciated on the big screen instead of watching it at home, unless you have one of those big screen TVs that only the filthy rich can afford.

Anyway, I've talked to some people who haven't seen 300. Bleh. You like missed half of your life.

Kidding aside, 300 is a movie adaptation of Frank Miller's graphic novel of the same title. It's about King Leonidas who goes to war with 300 of his best Spartan men against the Persian Army (who are said to be in the millions or something). The Persians' god-king, Xerxes, wanted to invade Sparta because of the latter's insubordination. The whole movie just centers around the brief preparation of war, the great extent of the actual war that lasted around 3 days, and the aftermath of the war.

A cool thing about 300 is that it's based on a real war between the Spartans and the Persians. What I'm talking about is that this war, King Leonidas and Xerxes did exist in real life. The Battle of Thermopylae is a battle between Leonidas with a few hundred of his men against hundreds of thousands of Persians led by Xerxes.

Enough about history. 300 is a movie for anyone above the age of 20. Lol. Above 13, maybe. It's pure violence and you wouldn't want your kid saying that you're just like Xerxes (because you order him around too much). Well, I'm sure anyone would enjoy it, even just for the action scenes.

Disney Princesses

disney princessesIt kind of bothers me how pictures of the Disney Princesses almost always shows just Cinderella, Aurora, Snow White and Belle. We're lucky if Ariel's there; we're even luckier if Jasmine's remembered.

But what about Mulan or Pocahontas or Anastasia. Heck, there's Megara and even Nala! Yes, I'm ranting and I'm well aware that these four princesses on the picture are the original Disney Princesses.

My favorite Disney movies are Mulan, Pocahontas, The Lion King and Hercules. It's mostly the story plus the different approach to the artwork that drew me in. The other Disney Princesses movies all have the same plot: a girl meeting her prince charming. Quite boring, actually.

What about you guys? Your favorite Disney Princess?

Underworld: Rise of the Lycans

underworldA new Underworld movie is on the way. Titled Rise of the Lycans, the third Underworld movie will focus on the werewolves this time.

It's a prequel, so I don't think we'll be getting any Kate Beckinsale this time around. However, the movie will give the fans a background and will enlighten them as to how the feud between the Lycans and the Vampires started.

The movie follows Lucian as he rises up to the top-most rank in the Lycans' clan. He arranges a revolt against their former masters, the Vampires, led by Viktor, the Lycans' enslaver. Together with his lover, Sonja, Lucian will battle against the very formidable bloodsucking armies of Viktor.

Sounds interesting? Sounds like a flop? Well after the second Underworld movie, Underworld Evolution, I kinda got turned off with the story. If I'm going to watch the third Underworld movie, I'll probably catch it when it's featured on TV and not waste my time and money watching it on the big screen.

But who knows right?

Is anyone looking forward to Underworld: Rise of the Lycans?

New Mummy 3 Fight Scene Image!!

mummy 3 fight sceneHere you have it! A picture from the upcoming Mummy 3 movie, Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, with Jet Li playing the Chinese emperor.

I'm betting that this has really great fight scenes, considering the fact that Jet Li's in the movie. (Yes, I love Jet Li. Deal with it.)

Some Legacies Must End

american history x"His father taught him to hate. His friends taught him rage. His enemies gave him hope."

American History X -- This has got to be one of my favorite movies of all time. Maybe it's because of it's uniqueness as a movie, the plot, the dialogue...then again, it could just be Edward Norton. (He's a very good actor and you can't deny that.)

American History X is a movie about Neo-Nazism. It's a movie about racism. It's a movie about hatred. It's a movie about enlightenment. It's a movie about self-acceptance. It's a movie about reformation. American History X is a movie about all these aspects of a person's life that are interwoven into one intricate story about one family's life.

Meet Derek Vinyard. He's the leader of a Neo-Nazi group who are against everyone who aren't white Protestants. He goes to jail for manslaughter and gets released after serving only three years of his sentence. He's a changed man because of the multitude of experiences he had inside prison. Experiences that I probably wouldn't be able to handle if they happened to me.

Anyway, upon his return, he tries to renew his family's strained relationship and to fix every mistake that he's done before serving his jail-time. But then his younger brother, Danny, has become Derek's replacement within the Neo-Nazi group. Derek tries hard to change his brother and lead him away from the path of neo-Nazism before Danny ends his life tragically.

American History X explores the effects of Neo-Nazism through the lives of those involved in it, those who were involved with it, those who are close to them and to those who are terrorized by it. It's a scary ideology that looks down upon other people just because they belong to a race outside white Protestants. I love this movie because it explores something provoking in a way that people can relate to.

Derek's flashbacks help greatly in explaining the theme and the storyline. They are all essential in building up the story and in understanding the mentality of the people involved. Edward Norton really makes you feel Derek's character. When I watched American History X, I could really feel Derek's anger and pain, as well as reformation and his slow acceptance of the things that happened to him before he fully understood that what he did was wrong. Derek's life in prison was especially painful to watch -- and it's up to you to find out what was painful about it. Do note that I'm not only referring to his pains literally, but it's more on the figurative side.

I highly recommend American History X for those who want something new and thought-provoking. You won't regret watching it.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

crouching tiger, hidden dragonCrouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon -- Probably one of the saddest martial arts films I've ever seen, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon just brings in something new to movies of this genre.

One thing that immediately makes this movie a great one is the cast. We have Chow Yun-Fat, Michelle Yeoh, Chang Chen and Zhang Zi Yi, plus, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is directed by the great Ang Lee himself.

The story revolves around these four warriors you see on the picture. Chow Yun-Fat and Michelle Yeoh plays two seasoned warriors named Li Mu-bai and Yu Shu-lien respectively. The plot begins when Mu-bai tells Shu-lien that he wishes to surrender the Green Destiny - a sword he has been taking care of for a long time. Shu-lien agrees to deliver it to a friend of Mu-bai, a certain master, for safekeeping.

There, she meets the daughter of the governor, Jen (Zhang Zi Yi), who tells Shu-lien that the is to be married despite her not loving the man. That night, the Green Destiny is stolen by a masked thief whose trail leads to the governor's place, pointing out that Mu-bai's long-time enemy, the Jade Fox, is hiding under the guise of Jen's governess.

Jen and the Jade Fox tries to escape but Jen is to be stopped by a man called Lo (Chang Chen), a desert bandit whom Jen had a relationship with years before Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon's storyline. I'd actually want to tell you more, but that would just spoil everything, especially if you haven't seen the movie yet.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is about discipline, honor, self-sacrifice and courage that a warrior has to learn in order for them to fully understand what it means to live. It is a movie of reflection and realization as well as acceptance for the past and present.

Don't get me wrong. It's not all story. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon has one of the best fight scenes I've ever seen. There are a series of fight scenes all throughout the movie, so it's kind of interchanging: talk-fight-talk-fight-etc. You get the point, right?

If you're a fan of martial arts movies, philosophical movies, action movies, or you're someone who just wants to watch a good movie, I'd recommend Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

Is Beek Out of the Creek?!

dawson's creekDawson's Creek -- I remember watching Dawson's Creek back in 1998 when it was first aired. I couldn't understand the adult themes back then but I still liked watching it. Until it sucked. They put in too many characters and twisted the story so bad, I stopped watching the adventures of Dawson, Pacey, Jen and Joey.

I still think that Dawson is butt-ugly. But that's my opinion.

There's not much to the story except that it centers around the four friends and their teenage life in a fictional town called Capeside. Adulthood and the things related to it are mostly what the episodes are about, plus the teenage perspective of growing-up of course. It picked up where Beverly Hills, 90210 left off, and now, Dawson's Creek is considered a basis for teenage-angst-related TV shows like The OC and Gilmore Girls.

As I said, I was kinda hooked to watching Dawson's Creek when I was a kid. Well, fine. I was waiting for it every Friday night at our local station. Ever since I started watching it, I resented the fact that someone like James Van derBeek is a lead character. I don't like how he looks. After the first season, or two, I don't really remember when, I lost interest and stopped watching. It was like their lives are getting more complicated when it isn't supposed to be complicated in the first place. Too much drama. But what the hell...we're talking about teenagers here. Of course their lives are all drama! I was like that too, 4 years ago.

Did anyone watch Dawson's Creek?

Cute Dinosaurs!

land before timeLand Before Time -- A 1988 animated movie directed by Don Bluth, Land Before Time is a movie about 5 baby dinosaurs who were on a journey to find the Great Valley after their home was destroyed by an earthquake.

The five dinosaurs are:
Littlefoot - Apatosaurus
Cera - Tricerotops
Ducky - Parasaurolophus
Petrie - Pteranodon
Spike - Stegosaurus

Littlefoot is the main character in the Land Before Time, the rest are his friends who help him go through any ordeal he encounters. The story basically revolves around Littlefoot...and for a dinosaur as young as he is, Littlefoot sure went through a whole lot.

Oh the antagonist here is a Tyrannosaurus Rex, otherwise known as Sharptooth. Well I guess it's pretty obvious by now that the names of the characters in Land Before Time describe, or at least is associated with the type of dinosaurs who own the name.

Land Before Time made me cry - both as a kid and as a 20-something kid-at-heart. The story is simple, but how they portrayed it moves a viewer to tears. It really does. I guess it's because anyone can relate to Littlefoot and his four friends. There's also a moral to the story, and it doesn't take an adult to explain it to a kid for the kid to understand it. Just by watching the movie, the kid would be able to understand what the movie is trying to teach.

Also, since the first movie was quite popular (my parents bought me a VHS copy when I was young and I actually memorized their lines from start to finish), so they made a sequel. Plus several other sequels after that. To date, there are around 12 Land Before Time movies and a television spin-off. I wasn't particularly fond of the TV spin-off, but the movies are quite amusing. They're more light-hearted as compared to the first Land Before Time movie, but nonetheless entertaining.

Get to know your Kingdom Vertebrata

wild chroniclesWild Chronicles -- This is one of my favorite National Geographic documentary series. The reason is pretty obvious too: learning about animals is cool. Well at least I think it's cool.

NatGeo's Wild Chronicles offers the viewers a different look at man's co-inhabitants on planet Earth. Viewers will get to learn more about the animals in a way that they rarely get to read in books. Besides, watching animals eat, run, sleep and do whatever they do best is better being watched than read, right?

National Geographic describes Wild Chronicles as a look...

" the human relationship with nature, highlighting breakthrough science that offers real hope for the future."

Isn't that intriguing? You get to learn about the animals and at the same time, you get to learn how to protect them. It's a universal fact that we need animals, so before anyone launches an all-out protest against conglomerates and other people who harm animals, better learn what you're protecting first. That pretty much makes sense, right?

It's really amazing how much we've all seen these animals in zoos and books and other media, but Wild Chronicles sheds a whole new light on them, giving the viewers information about different species that I don't think we'll ever know in our lifetimes (if you're not some nature buff or anything).

A Tale of Two Sisters

a tale of two sistersA Tale of Two Sisters -- I admit that I'm a fan of Asian horror movies because I find them more interesting, creative and unique than their Western counterparts. One of the Asian horror movies that I enjoyed watching, aside from Ringu and Ju-on, is A Tale of Two Sisters.

A Tale of Two Sisters is basically a psychological horror movie that centers on...two sisters. You didn't see that coming, did you? Don't worry, I won't give spoilers. Just a brief note on what the movie is about.

The movie starts with the two sisters moving into their new home in the countryside where there father grew up. Their step-mother greeted them warmly (their mother just died) but the sisters dislike their new mother. The house started to resemble a prison for the girls because of the cold atmosphere brought by their step-mother. Soon, their step-mother changes horribly, and with her, the house changes too - giving way to sinister and horrific incidents that drive the sisters to the brink of insanity.

That's just something to minutely describe A Tale of Two Sisters. For one, it messed up my mind the first time I saw it. Secondly, it scared me...and I like getting scared. The picture above is kinda creepy, no? I don't really want to give away the climactic parts of the story, so you should just watch it. It might seem confusing at first, but by the time the movie ends, you'll see how it all fits in together.

The Pagemaster

the pagemasterPagemaster -- I remember watching Pagemaster when I was around 9 years old (this was released on 1994, btw). I loved the whole live-action and animation combination throughout the movie. Well, it wasn't so much of a combination as compared to Who Framed Roger Rabbit? or Space Jam since the movie switches between live-action and animation, plus majority of the story is animated.

For those of you who haven't heard of the Pagemaster yet, it's a movie that stars Macaulay Culkin as Richard. He was a timid boy who was fearful of a lot of things. His father decided to make a tree house for him but he's too scared to climb up and help his dad. So one day, his dad runs out of nails and asks Richard to buy some for him. On the way home, rain starts to pour heavily and Richard is forced to seek shelter at the library.

There he meets the librarian, played by Christopher Lloyd, who quickly assumes that Richard is looking for a fiction book and sends Richard off to find one. He slips on the floor at the center of the building and as he wakes up, and suddenly a huge wave of color engulfs him, turning him into a cartoon character.

He then meets three books, Adventure, Fantasy and Horror, in their respective sections. They encounter the Pagemaster who tells them that they have to find the exit, and thus begins an adventure for Richard.

It's a great movie for both kids and adults. I mean, a lot of the grown-ups would recognize literature references all throughout the movie more than the kids would do. Well there's a moral too, just a simple lesson for Richard to face his fears. It was a lot of trouble for that one piece of advice, but at least, he was able to learn how to do just that.

On the X-Men movies...

wolverineX-Men -- Just a quick poll, everyone! I think everyone already knows that a new X-Men movie (though I'm not really sure if it's the Wolverine one or not) is on it's way to our movie screens soon. I just want to find out how many of you liked...
- X-Men 1
- X-Men 2
- X-Men 3
- All three movies
- None of them

Well... It's possible to like all three and to not like any right? For me, the best one was...uhm... I LIKE ALL THREE. And I can't wait for the fourth one, for that matter. I've always been a big fan of the X-Men, especially Wolverine. Oh and I despise Cyclops.

So... I want your thoughts everyone! Which X-Men movie did you like and what are your thoughts on the upcoming X-Men movie??

Oh and tell everyone who your favorite X-Men character is!

Highlander: The Source

duncan macleodHighlander -- So has anyone seen the trailer for the new Highlander movie? Does anyone even know that there's a new Highlander movie? Well it's slated for release this year and it's the fifth Highlander movie to date.

I read somewhere that it was already shown in America, aired by the Sci-Fi Channel, but when I watched Resident Evil the other day, I saw the trailer for Highlander: The Source, so I'm guessing that it will be shown here in our local cinemas.

I can't wait for this one. If you've read my earlier post on the Highlander series, you'll get an idea of how much I like Highlander. Added to that, Adrian Paul, the original Duncan MacLeod, is the one starring in the movie. So that's double the "I can't wait for this one."

Oh yeah, the plot. It's basically just a quest to find the Holy Grail so that the immortals can unlock the secrets of "The Source". Ah but this time, as they race to find the secrets, the world of the near-future is on its path to destruction.

So, is anyone going to watch this? Do you think it will be a good one?

John Tucker Must Die?

john tucker must dieJohn Tucker Must Die -- Have you actually ever heard of this movie? Well, yeah, if you're a movie buff or someone who's watching the lives of celebrities, you probably have. But for someone not so interested in movies, I have to admit that I've never heard of John Tucker Must Die until my sister came home with a DVD copy of it.

I thought it was some kind of suspense thriller given the title. I thought wrong. Dead wrong.

It was another chick flick. I'm not a fan of chick flicks. I still watched in nonetheless and wasted like an hour and a half of my life watching girls get revenge from a guy who played them. Ah, don't take me wrong though. Just because I implied that it wasn't any good, my sister liked it. So buy the DVD (I made it easy for you and placed a link there.) and just see for yourself.

Oh but there were some parts that made me laugh. Like laugh, laugh... Not "laugh" because the whole movie is pointless. Did you just get that? I kinda confused myself there.

Anyway, the plot of John Tucker Must Die:

Meet John Tucker, a jock and the most popular guy in school. Everyone wants a piece of him and he wants a piece of every girl. So he just does that. He commits himself to three different girls at the same time (and from the same school) and tells them not to tell anyone because his parents are strict and doesn't want him to be in a relationship yet. Right.

So meet Kate, the invisible girl in school. No, not like the Fantastic 4 character, it's just that nobody knows her nor notices her. Anyway, when the three girlfriends find each other out, Kate "helps" them to get even with John Tucker. The three girls use Kate to make John Tucker fall in love and get his heart broken.

Okay, that isn't the rest of the story but I wouldn't wanna spoil it all for you, my dear readers. It gets pretty predictable, but that's just me. I tend to predict every event in these kinds of movies. So there. John Tucker Must Die isn't a mind-boggling movie. It's pretty simple and as I said, predictable, but the antics that these girls come up with are funny...especially during the early stages of their "John Tucker Must Die Plan".

It's really up to you if you want to watch it. I suggest that if you do want to watch, don't expect anything...if you're not into these chick flicks. If you are...then Happy Viewing!

Let's All Take A Trip To...

the magic school busThe Magic School Bus -- Does anyone actually remember this show? It's been aired so long ago that I doubt kids these days remember it at all. I watch Magic School Bus when I was a kid and I learned a lot about science. Just the basic, kid stuff.

(Looking back, I realize that the Magic School Bus creators must be high at that time.)

Anyway, as I mentioned, the Magic School Bus is a kids' show that featured different science concepts with each episode. The multi-cultural children and their teacher, Ms. Frizzle, all go on a field trip every time to learn the concepts presented during class. They board the Magic School bus and then the fun begins.

The Magic School Bus can be anything: a space ship, submarine, shrinking machine... Anything that the class needs for them to learn the lesson. How COOL is that, right? Right? RIGHT?

It's actually a good way to teach your kids science before the internet was easily accessible to anyone.. But then, who wants to read long articles with graphs and charts right? I'm sure very little 8-year-olds would want to do that. So here is another option: Magic School Bus! It's not boring, it doesn't force kids to eat veggies (that discourages them from watching, trust me) and the best part is... Magic School Bus is a cartoon series! How COOL is that, right?!

Okay, so here's a list of episodes for all 4 seasons...just try to make out what each episode is about. Enjoy!
