Movie Addiction

Sunday, August 24, 2014

Hi Guys!  I've been missing in action for several weeks now. I ran out of vacation leaves so I don't have travel post for the past three months. I just make the most out of my weekends hanging inside the cinemas and it seems like the months of July and August are packed with must-watch films. Here are some of them:

1.) Transformers: Age of Extinction, from the fourth installment of the Tranformers series, who wouldn't miss the autobots especially Bumblebee and Optimus Prime. They've battled against the man-made transformer Galvatron, who was later revealed as Megatron in disguise. 

2.) And since I'm a KathNiel fan, I won't allow myself to miss She's Dating the Gangster, a Cathy Garcia-Molina film. Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla pulled off the roles Athena and Kenji. It is a story from Wattpad about two teenagers who hated each other at first, pretended as a couple to make the ex-girlfriend of the guy jealous, but fell in love seriously in the end. All their cheesy scenes literally brought hysteria inside the cinema! 

3.) Then there is another version of Hercules starring Dwayne Johnson, this time the legendary half-god half-human doesn't fight alone. His five friends, who were great warriors as well joined him in his battles. They trained the army of Thrace as requested by King Cotys and they were rewarded with gold. They were forced to battle with the same army in the end. 

4.)  One of my favorites, Guardians of The Galaxy, also came with positive reviews. The combination of  Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper made a perfect ensemble. The story is about Peter Quill a.k.a StarLord who stole a very powerful orb from planet Morag, the supervillain Ronan wanted to get it to destroy other planets. There were lots of funny scenes in the movie and who would have thought that Dave 'Batista' Bautista, a WWE fighter can pass as an actor. 'I am Groot!' became a favorite line from this movie.
I also love the 80's music incorporated in this movie, those are Peter's favorite songs played on his walkman, a gift from her mom when he was young, before he was abducted on Earth by aliens.

5.) Scarlett Johansson is L-O-V-E! She's so pretty that's why I really wanted to watch her film, Lucy. Gladly, I wasn't disappointed with her movie because of its amazingly unique concept. Her character as Lucy began when she became a drug mule to a Korean drug lord. The bag of a drug called CPH4 hidden inside her abdomen accidentally broke and the substance was released inside her body. On the other  hand, Professor Norman is researching about the theory that humans only use 10% of its cerebral capacity. Because of the CPH4 inside her system, Lucy was able to reach up to 100% of her brain capacity. Her physical and mental abilities became so exceptional, she can control other people's mind, can travel back in time, can teleport and many more.

6.) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles a.k.a TMNT was the only movie I've witnessed in 3D this year because it's free. Company perks are blessings indeed! Say hello to Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael as they return on big screen with Megan Fox. These humanoid turtles discreetly protects New York City from Foot Clan, a gang that brings terror into the city.

7.) Just yesterday, I've watched Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno, film adaptation of the popular samurai manga.
This is the film I definitely wouldn't miss and my ever favorite. It is the sequel to Rurouni Kenshin released in the Philippines last 2013 which is also a great one. The film is in Japanese language, only with English subtitles. Amazingly, the language is not a hindrance to its blockbuster success as Filipinos really embraced this movie and loves every character most especially Kenshin and Kaoru. The actors Takeru Satoh, Emi Takei and Munetaka Aoki even visited the Philippines last August 6 and 7 for their red carpet premiere. By the way, Takeru Satoh is so damn hot! I'm actually excited for the next sequel Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends which will be shown by September, also this year.

FYI.. I wouldn't make my movie watching hassle-free without the use of my e-Plus tap to pay card from SM Cinema. :)
