FIFTY SHADES DARKER (MOVIE REVIEW)

fiftyshadesdarkerposterWell… I was always curious about the movie adaptation of this series. And yeah, we did watch the movie last weekend with hubby. And as expected, I am a little bit dismayed because I was expecting too much on the movie.

Of course, there were these scenes I am looking forward to see on the movie and they did not include (insert sigh icon). I was also expecting about the Christian-sub-mode-scene to be highlighted, but they didn’t; Mia and Ethan love affair didn’t show-up too; and where’s Dr. Flynn?; they should also emphasized the i-am-home-safely scene of Christian from Charlie Tango’s crash; and the beating-Jack-Hyde of Taylor and Christian, I wish I’d seen it too… Well, let’s leave it that way because it ALWAYS happens on book-to-movie stories… So here are some things I want to share:

THE ACTORS: Their selection of actors/actresses is really amazing. Elena is somewhat surprised me. She’s prettier on the movie as I imagined on the book. And also Jack is good-looking as compared to what I’ve seen on my mind. And seeing Jamie as Christian again is still a mind-blowing, he’s still good-looking. But I found him more attractive on this movie. And Ana also is still so attractive.

THE SOUNDTRACK: Before going to the cinema, I have already a copy of the “Not Afraid Anymore” and “The Scientist” and “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever”. And they are great. I’ll be having the rest as soon as it will be released.

THE SCENES: You know what I am referring to. It’s good thing they didn’t include everything from the book. And they made it shorter this time. But it was a bit disturbing still watching such scenes with strangers. I feel awkward honestly. But I decided to go with it, so I faced the consequence.

TAYLOR: I think missed him on the first movie. So while reading the Fifty Shades Freed a couple of weeks ago, I’ve decided to watch the Fifty Shades of Grey movie for me to visualize Taylor while reading. And his appearance on the movies is too little, I wish I’ve seen him more. I adore him. And I like Mrs. Jones in this part. She’s so pretty. 🙂

FINAL SAY: The movie-adaptation is quite nice. At least they included the marry-me-scene on the boat house. On movie adaptation, it would be fair giving 3/5. Cant wait to see how will they make scenes on R8-racing-with-the-non-sub of book 3. And Phoebe and Ted and the honeymoon. Well, be looking forward with those scenes.

Still not recommended for young viewers.

ANIME REVIEW: CHARLOTTE

654871

Since Haikyuu Season 2 isn’t complete yet, I’ve decided to find shorter anime series and luckily I have a copy of the ‘Charlotte’ series. And upon watching the first episode I decided to finish it ASAP. And I made it.

SPOILER ALERT*** The story is unique. Adolescent having different abilities that wore-out after adolescent stage, where they got from the comet named as charlotte which passes Earth every 75 year.

The friendship, family-relationship, determination, love, commitment is so intense that made the characters unique compared to each other. And their abilities too is unimaginable.

The twist of revealing mysteries seems fine to me. Death of some characters is really painful. I was lil bit emotionally tortured but the ending lift my spirit and so overall the deaths is worth it.

And since I started to love and get addicted to anime again, I am looking for another series which I’ll be watching with hubby as soon as we finish on CAPETA and YOWAMUSHI PEDAL. Yups, we’re on that bicycle team as of the moment. But its just I who watched this Charlotte. But don’t worry I’ll ask him to watch this too.

So as I end my review, it’s a 5/5 stars for this short-yet-worth-watching anime series. 🙂

ANIME REVIEW: Haikyuu (Season1)

haikyuu

As I’ve written last time, we’re enjoyin this anime so much. And so it’s-a-must to write a simple review upon finishing the Season 1. There’s so much to share about this series and it’s so amazing to start with the characters. They are so cool and unique. I can’t find any character to hate. Even Oikawa Tooru is good character.

Their defeat on Aoba Johsai is indeed painful. But the match is really amazing. It made Shoyo shine during the Inter-High Preliminary. And lets not forget Tobio and the rest of the team. All of them is cool and good. As in all of them, including Sensei Ittetsu Takeda. He’s the heart of the Karasuno Volleyball Club afterall 🙂

I really don’t want to be spoiler on details so I just want to give my rate, and its 5/5 stars for the first season. We’re actually on the Season 2 now but will be writing different post with that. So that’s all for now… 🙂

After finishing the Season2, i’ll definitely reading the Manga…  That’s the most exciting part! 🙂

ANIME SERIES: HAIKYU (What I Am Watching)

haikyuu-poster

No I am not a volleyball player. Not either an athlete. But I dunno why I became obsessed with this anime series. We happened to see this on HERO Channel (anime channel in the Philippines), and hubby and I watched the whole episode and we liked it. So we then scheduled our 8:00 PM as Haikyu-time.

Luckily, when I posted my status on Facebook while watching, a friend of mine, Dale, who is an Anime-and-Manga-addict, comment that this series is one of her faves and she have the whole Season1 of anime series, and there we go, she gave us copy. And hubby and I then started to watch immediately. And so we’re into it as of the moment.

Its an interesting series because of the different characters that really are unique and annoying. Hahaha, cant stop myself from laughing while writing this. So if ever you are an anime-lover who’s reading this now, and this Haikyu thing isn’t familiar to you, try to look for it and send me back comment or review. I’ll be glad to exchange conversation with you. 🙂

Yups, i have the Manga copy too!

The “FELIX MANALO” Movie

Maraming beses ko nang nabasa ang life story nang Ka Felix. And this is another good moment for me. Ang mapanuod ang storya ng buhay ng ‘Sugo ng Diyos sa mga Huling Araw’. Lumaki ako sa loob nang Iglesia Ni Cristo. At mula pagkabata, kilala ko na sa pangalan, sa mukha, sa pagkatao ang Ka Felix pero hindi ang buong storya nang kanyang buhay. Bagamat nakakapagbasa na ako ng tungkol sa kanya, iba pa rin ang mapanuod ang kanyang kwento sa sinehan. At ang mga aral na kaniyang itinataguyod, wala akong makita na mali alinman sa mga ito. Kaya matatag ang aking pananampalataya na tama lamang na ang lahat ng mga tao ay umanib sa loob ng Iglesia Ni Cristo para sa ikaliligtas.

Napakasarap sa pakiramdam na makita ang kanyang pagsisikap, pagsusuri at pagmamahal sa Ama. Napakagaan sa pakiramdam ang makita ang bunga nang kanyang mga pagsusumikap. Na mula sa kanyang pagsusuri, naipagpatuloy ang Iglesia Ni Cristo na si Cristo ang nagtatag at naiparating sa ating panahon. Nakakaakit ang mga Gawain na pinasimulan ni Ka Felix, kaya nga ganun na lamang din ang pagnanais naming mga kaanib na mag-anyaya at mag-akay nang mga tao na makikinig sa mga doktrina na aming itinataguyod para sa kapakanan na ngating kaluluwa.

Ang “Felix Manalo” ay isang pamamaraan muli nang Ama para makilala at matanyag ang Iglesia Ni Cristo, ang bayan nang Diyos. Dahil sa pelikulang ito, muling naipakilala ang INC sa Pilipinas at sa iba pang panig ng mundo. Dito makikita at mauunawaan nang mga tao ang buong kwento kung panong ginabayan nang Dioys ang sugo para maiparating sa sanlibutan ang katotohan. Nawa maging daan pa ang pelikulang ito para maantig ang puso ng ating mga kapwa na magsuri sa mga aral na itinataguyod ng INC, nang sa gayon maging kabahagi din sila sa pag-asang kaligtasan ng bayan nang Diyos.

Binabati ko po ang lahat nang mga kapatid na nakipagkaisa sa lahat ng gawain na inilunsad para sa ikatatagumpay ng pelikulang ito. At muli po inaanyayahan po namin ang mga kababaayan nating panuorin ang pelikula para po makapagsimula silang magsuri ng mga salita ng ating Diyos. #FelixManaloNowShowing

WHAT I AM WATCHING: The Flash (TV Series)

I’ve decided to watch TV Series again, while waitin for GOT Season 5 to be available. 🙂 And this is just an accident series, but i guess i’ll be lovin this. Though the next season will be aired this coming October, i need to finish the first season so i would not be a not-knowing-anything-viewer as season 2 will released.

Im still on Episode I, but i think it wont bore me. So i’ll be watching the rest maybe this weekend, with hubby of course. 🙂 ❤

Grant Gustin. He isn’t that cute, right. Its my first time to see this man, but lets give him a try. Maybe at the end, he’ll remain on my mind as i did on Jamie Dorman on OUAT… 🙂 ❤

So that’s it for now. I’ll be posting some reviews and thoughts as soon as i watched some episodes. Please comment back for some expectations for those who have watched the Season 1 already. Thanks! ❤ ❤

MOVIE#09: Fast and Furious 7

Im not a real fan of Paul Walker, but upon watching the movie I feel like, yeah emotional. I was crying at the ending but tryin not to show it. It’s a big impact that the production team didn’t killed Bryan (Paul Walker) on the movie. They sent him in such an emotional way. Those who were not touched on that scene maybe are hard-hearted… Sorry 🙂

I am not also a fan of the Fast and Furious movie series, but my hubby is. I went to cinema with him and couple of friends to watch the Furious 7. And it was a great experience. The movie is extremely action-packed. The team really did their best to make this movie unforgettable, not to just FAF fans but to all viewers. There are no scenes that aren’t exciting and intense. Really, it’s a 5 star rated movie. Its just sad that on next, Paul wont be there…

And because of him, im gonna watch the whole movie series as respect to Paul Walker. 😥

MOVIE#08: 50 SHADES OF GREY

fbanner - movietv

I promised myself, I won’t be reading the book. And I stand to it. I was just curious about the story and so I watched it. I’ll be honest; I skipped the sex scenes for I know it’s so uncouth and shocking. And so far, I liked the story. For the haters, I’m not one of you anymore guys. I’ve been tellin that it’s not a good movie or story for the younger ones, I still won’t recommend it, never, because it’s really unsuitable. But for young adults and adults, it’s okay to watch it. Just skipped the sex scenes as I’ve done and you’ll be amazed how the story goes.

I know some haven’t watched it so I don’t want to state major scenes. I’ll be careful. Here are the reasons why I like the movie:

#1: THE STORY. Christian Grey is totally a normal person. In a way ‘love-at-first-sight’ had happened to him. He’s even caring and yes a lil bit of romantic and loving. And Anastasia is a typical American girl who is liberated, but not much. She was able to change Christian point of view in positive way. And that’s when the problem occurs. Christian doesn’t want to change himself. Continue reading

Masterpiece by Jessie J

AS A PERFORMER: She’s just sexy as she is… She’ll be that perfect face i’ll love even she wont wear sexy clothes. I like her simplicity. But seeing her on sexy clothes, sorry i cant appreciate her.

PERFORMANCE: Her performance in this song is amazing. But that revealing dress makes me hate the MTV itself. Sorry again.

THE SONG: The message of the song is good. For i used similar motto a year back 🙂 “PERFECTLY IMPERFECT”

“I’m perfectly incomplete
I’m still working on my masterpiece”

FINAL RATING: 3.5 STARS
