Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

Wednesday, July 1, 2009

Another 3-D computer animated film that I'm waiting to be out in theaters here in the Philippines is the third installment of the Ice Age series, Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. What I know is, it's going to be out also this month, along with Hannah Montana: The Movie and Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Oh, it's going to be next week already. I just don't know the exact date. (Anybody knows when?) I've only watched the first of the series once. It was already ages ago, I was in third year high school then (I'm already working now mind you), which I think is around 7-8 years ago. Wow! I am that old already and also, because of that time gap from the day I watched the movie to now, I can't remember a thing about the movie. No recollection whatsoever. I can't even remember a name of a character. Not a single one. Clearly, signs of aging are already evident. Hihi. Ice Age 2, I wasn't able to watch it at all! Here comes Ice Age 3, which I am excited to see on big screen, and I don't know anything about it! With this, I might not able to enjoy watching it since the plot might be a continuation of the previous ones or there might be scences that refers to Ice Age 1 or Ice Age 2. I must watch both films before I catch Ice Age 3 in a movie house. It's a must! A MUST! Hehe.

Hannah Montana: The Movie Philippine Release Date

Friday, June 26, 2009

Obviously, I have been waiting for a lot of movies to be shown in theaters here in the Philippines. And most of them will still make me wait for a loooooonnnnng tiiiiiimmmeeee. ("Up" anyone?!?! Two more months... Two more months...) Good thing that there's one movie that's going to be out already within the next two weeks that I'm also excited to see. But not on big screen though. Harhar. It's the Hannah Montana: The Movie! Release date of the movie in US was last April 10. But here in the Philippines, it's going to be on July 8. I have no plans of watching it in a cinema , but my brother, who has a huge crush on the lead star, Miley Cyrus, wants me to accompany him watch the movie in a movie house. Being a loving ate (hehe), I immediately said yes to his request. I have nothing against it, and besides, I used to watch the Hannah Montana series every weekends during its first season. I just wish time flies to July 8 already and I'll have some bonding time with my little bro, oh, he's not little anymore, make that, younger but big bro.

"Up" Movie Date was moved

Monday, June 22, 2009
As I was watching the DCOM premiere of "Dadnapped" here in the Philippines yesterday, the trailer of Disney Pixar's "Up" was rolled during a commercial break and the list of the movie's show dates in Asia was again flashed on tv. Luckily, I was able to see it. Thank God I was able to catch it. Why? Because the last time I saw the list, the movie's Philippine show date is already on August 12. But now, it is already on August 19!!! It's one week later than the previous date! Why do they keep on moving the movie theater show date here in the Philippines?!??! A friend even told me that it was to be released already last May but MTRCB keeps on postponing it! Why Oh Why??!!? This is already out of my control. I have nothing else to do but wait. Sheesh...

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Price Philippine Show Date

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince Poster

July 15, 2009. The world wide release of the much awaited Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, the sixth installment of the popular Harry Potter series, on big screen. It's a good thing that the release date of the said movie here in the Philippines is the same with the international movie show date. Being a Harry Potter fan, it is a must for me to watch this in a movie theater. Watching the movie's trailer alone is giving me goosebumps. In approximately 25 days, I'm off to the movie house with my friends to catch this box-office, high-grossing film (Well, I think it's going to be just that, I can foresee that a lot of people will see this on big screen, I just hope I'm not wrong. Hihi). Now, need to refresh my memory on what happened and the sequence of events from the books. Need to re-read the books from Book 1 to, at least, Book 6. I just wish I still have ample time to do and finish reading the books before July 15.

Just attended a possible part time job yesterday. A job that will let you travel, teach, interact with kids and be one with the environment all together.  In the information sheet, or application form, whatever you call it (it is just the same banana), there's a section there that requires the applicant to tell something about his or herself through an essay, poem or artwork. I chose to write a poem. It's been quite a while since I last wrote a poem and I might say, I'm impressed with myself that I was still able to write one. I also realized how much I miss writing. 'Kalokohan' writing. Hehe. With the limited time that I've got, I only came up with two stanzas. Let me share my *ahem ahem* "masterpiece". Hahaha.

Ako ay si *AAA* Ramos
Pagmamahal ko sa kalikasan ay lubus-lubos
Ating itong alagaan bago pa man ito maubos
Lalo na't biyaya sa atin ito ng Diyos

Hilig ko din ang maglakbay
Mas maganda pa kung ako'y may kasabay
Takbo ng mga pangyayari mas nagiging makulay
O kay sarap naman talagang mabuhay!!!

My poem is pretty much straight forward. No need to analyze. No need to interpret. A poem that would never hit educational books. Purely for entertainment purposes only. Haha.

Disney Channel Original Movie: Dadnapped

Tuesday, June 16, 2009
One of things that I look forward to in watching Disney Channel is the Disney Channel Original movies. Sample of these are High School Musical, Camp Rock, The Cheetah Girls, just to name a few. These movies became such a hit that a lot of these movies' merchandise has been sold. That even High School Musical 3 was already made into a theater movie and was shown on big screen worldwide. Also, main cast of these high-rated DCOM (short for Disney Channel Original Movies) had the chance to tour the world and have a concert. To add to that, because of their popularity, you can just easily buy a DVD copy of those movies from your nearest typical record or video stores. I think these are the ones that were overrated, were given too much hype. But there are those that just remain 'silent', movies that maybe you will never hear of and never made it to have a DVD or even just a VHS release. Just like the upcoming DCOM, Dadnapped. I saw the preview last week and I am quite excited to watch it. It was already televised in US last February 16 and is going to be aired on Disney Channel Asia on June 21. When you are living in the Philippines or Malaysia it is going to be at 730pm.

Obviously, from the title alone, someone's dad's going to be kidnapped. And I assume that it's the lead character's dad (that's always the case isn't it?). That's all I know about the movie plot. Don't want to spoil myself by reading reviews. Besides, it's going to be this Sunday already. Waiting time is not that long.


The movie stars Emily Osment (Yep, Sixth Sense star Haley Joel Osment's younger sister), David Henrie, Jason Earles, Moises Arias and Phill Lewis. Such a star-studded Disney cast. I would love to watch Phill Lewis. He never fails to make me laugh when I watch The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. I also like the tandem of Jason Earles and Moises Arias in Hannah Montana. I also find David Henrie funny and cute in Wizards of Waverly Place. Even when he was still a kid and had a minor role in That's So Raven, he was already charming. With this kind of cast, this is a DCOM that I surely would not want to miss.

E! 101 Reasons the 90's Ruled

Sunday, June 14, 2009
I have been meaning to blog about this since the day I watched this countdown on QTV, which was January this year. It has been more than 8 years since the 90's decade ended and it has been just the start of the year, what could be more appropriate than to have a list enumerating the things that went popular during that time. It was a break from the traditional what-happened-the-previous-year highlights countdown. Actually, the list has been around for 5 years now, the program by E! first came on year 2004 and was televised on E! channel. I am sure glad they still aired it here in the Philippines even though it's been years since it was first aired and I am doubly glad that I was able to catch it.
