so the weekend is over, hence, back to boring old life, as if it was ever exciting during the weekends,had a movie marathon, like any lame person would have.so, I’ve watched a few movies within this week itself, and felt the need to give a review on the movies that i felt worth recommending to others, plus i think i rather do this rather than reading for my test tomorrow :p and I’m pretty sure id get slaughter if my parents were too read this.
movies that I’ve watched this week ;
1. Diary of a Wimpy Kid : Dog Days
2. Part of Me ; Katy Perry (the movie)
3. Silver Lining Playbook
4. Dirty Girl
5. Jack Reacher
6. Fun Size
7. Thank You for Smoking
omg.i didn’t realise that i watched that much of movies.oh well, damage is done.the genre varies, so i guess it depends on the person’s individuality.so for people like me, id recommend Part of Me, Silver Linings Playbook, Dirty Girl and Thank You for Smoking.
for those who plans to watch it, it is advisable to not read the whole post as i might drop any spoilers and i wouldn’t wanna be in the wraths of people who lost the surprise element of the movie, not that theres any twist or what, but yeah, you get the gist.
so lets start with
it started out with videos on how katy perry inspired others on how to be comfortable in your own skin and even a video of herself when she was 18 years old, telling how she would wanna pursue her career in singing and still be able to keep her individuality, it was a good start.
then the credits entered, and u can hear katy perry’s voice (yeay for fans like me) doing some commentary on how this was her childhood dream etc etc.it was indeed taken during her all year round tour, hence we can see how hard was it for her to work non-stop, well there were breaks in between , but still, it aint easy.it was very entertaining throughout the movie, especially for fans like me, who enjoys her songs, especially her Teenage Dream album , as all the songs are played in it.
what to expect :
her struggle in life on how she started her career off, on what her parents think of her being a pop singer as they are a strong believer in Christianity, her determination to keep her relationship going on with her ex, on how hard she worked throughout the tour, on how she nearly gave up as she can’t handle the pressure (she did it anyway), how strong she was to cope with all the stress, her tour in Japan, how she feels grateful of her fans and her ups and downs in life.
theres so much that i enjoyed about the movie.some of them was because of the concept of her tour, it was just so nice to see cute and quirky things come to life.i just love it how it suited her personality so well.ive always been a fan of a quirky sense of style, ever since the beginning, when she started of with her hit ‘ I Kissed a Girl ‘ and ‘ Thinking of You’.I remember downloading her pictures and putting it as my desktop pictures in Murphy. *ahh.those juvenile days* i also love how she keeps her friendship even though she’s a big star.her designer, makeup artist and others who i can’t think of are like her best buddies since she before she had all this fame and glory and yet she never forgets about them.i also loved the fact that she never abandoned her family though her parents were against it initially and i just love her cute grandma the videos of her when she was small was just too adorable.
i guess that about that and i don’t think a small summary of her movie is enough.WATCH IT!
okay, i had a bit of a doubt in the trailer.it wasn’t all that thrilling as the media said it would be, so I’ve been postponing this movie for quite some time now, until this week, which i don’t know why.maybe its just the calling.
it basically a bout a guy (Pat) who just came out of a mental institution who was there because he hit his wife’s boyfriend/lover who he caught showering with his wife in his house while their wedding song was playing on the radio.i felt pity for this guy as we all can see, who wouldn’t be pissed off?i know id beat the living shit out of both of them.back to the movie, so he met his best friend wife’s sister (Tiffany) who recently lost her husband, and was also quite mentally unstable.it was like a perfect match.as for us viewers, or maybe just me, i could see that Tiffany was very much in love with Pat, and longed for his love as how he loved his wife.She was willing to lie to him and made him dance with her for some dancing competition in return of her favour of passing his letter to his wife.
the movie throughout was enjoyable even though it was a 2 hour movie, but it wasn’t bad as the movie has a well-written script so, it was worth the time.Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence) acted pretty well in this movie and its no wonder she won an Academy Award for it.She really deserved it but heck, all of them deserve an award.
it was nice to watch a well written movie.WORTH YOUR TIME!
I’ve been wanting to watch it ever since i watched the trailer but somehow got distracted a few times earlier.the movie wasn’t exactly like how i expected from the trailer but it was still awesome.and as I’ve been tweeting earlier, for those who appreciate the 90s music, this movie is definitely the bomb.i just love each and every single song that was in it.
so, Danielle, who was very popular in school as one of the promiscuous girl in school was degraded to the remedial class for her talking dirty to her teacher.she ended up pairing up with Clarke who was gay.his father was having a hard time accepting the fact and tried to make him straight by sending him to see a shrink and encourage his involvement around Danielle.
i would say the movie was predictable, but then again, i am entertained by the sharp witted Danielle who always know how to answer back.its pretty much about a daughter who got to know who’s her father and as usual, she’d wanna see her real dad.so she made Clarke steal his father’s car and run away to California.a lot happened within the long journey and i would say i won’t wanna spoil it much for you guys :p
oh oh, i just love how the setting was in the 90s.they really did a good job on that except for a few minor things, but all in all, it was
ENTERTAINING WITH SHARP WITTED WORDS!
i had a big doubt on this movie as it was my boyfriend was the one recommended it.i even threaten him that if it wasn’t all that, i’d….. (lets just keep that private :p) watched the trailer, and it still didn’t convinced me that it was that great, i even tweeted about it, and there was a good response so maybe i was slightly convinced.ive made half my mind not to watch it and to watch another movie instead, but it wasn’t loading so it was like the very very much the last choice.and boy was i wrong about the movie.

Nick Naylor who works as a lobbyist for the Academy of Tobacco Studies have been working his ass off on to defend how tobacco does not affect the health of people.he knew how dangerous it was but he still had his points.i just love how he can put up with arguments like how its not on whether its right or wrong, its how you portray your argument, and if you can use (i think ‘manipulate’ is a better choice) your wits and smart words against your opponent, you’ll end up winning just he same.
it was also touching when he thought that he lost his momentum but his son still looks at him as a hero, and he gained the confidence to defy the Senator once again.
haaaaah.took me 2 days to finish this post.haha.wasnt motivated enough i guess.anyhooos, hope you guys agree with me on the selection of my recommendation.till then, xx.
p/s ; the link to the trailer are given through the title of the movies.enjoy!
