DISCLAIMER: Ayala Cinemas did not pay me anything just for plugging this movie but this movie is something worth watching.

Ok. Please do watch Academy Award winning movie including Best Picture, Best Director for Tom Hooper and Best Actor for Collin Firth — THE KING’s SPEECH. The movie tells the story of how a King overcame stammering with the help of a good friend. I don’t want to spoil anything by giving so much details so watch out for the movie coming out on May 11th!

Well as you can see, anything Harry Potter needs to be posted in my blog. I know I have promised somewhere earlier in this blog that I will not be writing anything about HP not until July but it seems I cannot keep any promise especially when the real EPIC trailer of Harry Potter came out a week ago. Well I guess the trailer presents everything that I wanted to see in the final EPIC movie. Well for one I saw Molly and Bellatrix and I can’t wait for that scene when Molly calls her a B*TCH! Anyways, here’s the glimpse of the final movie.

And now, I wipe my tears again…. As the end is coming to and end, its a bitter sweet feeling. But I can’t wait for July. Time flies quick and soon, we will see the final movie of the epic literature of the generation…. 🙂

I hear you! Lately I have been hooked with animated films, well for some people they still call it cartoons but there is such a big difference now knowing films go beyond just being cartoons. It’s 3D and there are other features which makes it more glossy than the regular cartoons that we see back when we were young. As of writing, I think I was able to watch all animated movies this year. Let me just go back with the last two animated movies which made a mark in my mind lately.

RIO

Voiced by the one and only Anne Hathaway and Mr. Social Network actor Jesse Eisenberg. This animated movie tells the story of Blu as he embarks from his comfort zone and travels to Rio to “save” his extinct specie, the Blue Macaw. In Rio, Blu meets his female counterpart Jewel and there they become the weirdest pair of the flying and walking bird. In Rio, they meet a number of friends and well not-so-good animals too and embark to an adventure which changed their lives.

GNOMEO AND JULIET

An animated movie produced by Elton John well with his hit songs in it. Lead character of Gnomeo and Juliet were voiced by English actors James McAvoy and Emily Blunt. This animated movie tells Shakespeare’s tragedy in a different light and well kids and kids at heart (like me) would enjoy. And the characters here are not people but backyard gnomes (how cool is it?). Well everything was a Romeo and Juliet-ish except that they tweaked the ending.

I don’t really want to tell the story for both animated films that I have watched so as not to spoil people who haven’t watched yet but for me, I really enjoyed both films. It’s quite a relief that amidst the busy-ness in life I can still find time to laugh in movies and at the same time learn some bits of lessons.

the E N D is near

OK. Now may this be the first and final post in this blog before July 15, 2011. One of the moving forward concerns me regarding this very important literary work and groundbreaking movie (well I’m not that much of a fan at all).

In barely 3 months from now, most of us who grew up in this decade will be bidding farewell to a well loved story of a boy wizard who lived and who fought he-who-must-not-be-named (kill yourself if you don’t know who these guys are!). It has been indeed a generation! For more than 10 years the book has griped me since my early high school years to my early working years. The movie had me hooked and made me watch it over and over and over again. As the end draws near to this REAL saga par excellence, it seems to indicate that childhood for me is almost over. Yes I am 24 but I feel like a child every time I see any Harry Potter (there you are I said who he is but again if you don’t know him, go and vanish in the Room of Requirement!) related materials (e.g. books, quidditch toys, there’s HP lego now) which makes my heart jump as if I am really a kiddo. Yes for some children stories and books could be Cinderella, Jack and the Bean Stalk, Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretel (forgive that awful movie this year) and more but for me childhood story was when I got my first Harry Potter book.

As the saga is about to come to a close, I pay tribute to Jo Rowling for the amazing literary work. To WB and Mr. Heyman for producing to movie (I didn’t care if you separated all books into 2 cause I will watch it over and over and over again) and to all the directors and the actors.

Until then, this will be my post for HP7 Part 2.
