Cabin in the Woods Movie

Another work of art is about to be shown in theaters nationwide come January 14, 2011. Cabin in the Woods is another MGM production with a spine-chilling thriller/horror twist. It was co-written by America’s most renowned artists in the world of filmmaking, Joss Whedon and Cloverfield screenwriter and director Drew Goddard.

The movie was supposed to be released to the public by February 5, 2010. The management wanted to convert it to a 3D film so they keep delaying the premier date until they lacked funds to feed the marketing and production expenditures.

coralineJust finished watching Coraline with Yzabella. As the movie goes to the point where she opens the little door (the height of a dolly), I think it resembles Alice in Wonderland (one of my favorite childhood stories) with a cat minus the rabbit. But what led Coraline to the door was a mouse. Coraline is a very adventurous, spontaneous girl who loves to play outdoors and the mud. Unfortunately, when they moved in, she has no friends to talk to and her parents are busy as bee finishing a garden catalogue.

When Coraline found her way through small door, it led her to a house like theirs. It has everything she wanted. Like her other mother and other father that she dreamed of – a mom that cooks for them and a dad who tends the garden.

But soon, she found out that this mother is just luring her to get make her as her own child. It’s like Hansel and Gretel, using the house and sweets to keep them inside the house so soon the beldam (old hag) will feed on her, just like what she did to the other kids.

Brad Pitt as Benjamin Button

bradYou wouldn’t recognize that it is Brad Pitt. The story is interesting and I would still watch it even if Brad won’t be in the lead cast. The whole film is a long three hours but will keep you hooked and would want to see what will happen next.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (adapted from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s short story) movie set in New Orleans from the end of World War 1. Benjamin was thrown out by his dad disgusted by his appearance for he was born old looking. Add to the remorse that his mother died giving birth to him and due to some incurable ailment. But fortune was on Benjamin’s side that a Home-for-the-Aged keeper and believer sheltered him and raised him as her own.

Sister Act Movie Review

Sister Act 1
I cannot think of any more words to describe how much I enjoy this movie. I’ve watched it over a hundred times in different media types, from Betamax, VHS, VCD and now in DVD. When they show it on local tv or cable tv, I don’t miss watching any of my favorite scenes. My only rant about the DVD copy is that it only has 1 DVD unlike other movie packages which include 2 discs which has the “making of the movie”. I am very fond of watching behind the scenes, so I would appreciate it if they’d included it on the DVD.

I first watched it when I was 9 years old. The first scene was boring for me. There are lots of scenes that seemed boring for a 9 year old like me who doesn’t pay much attention to the conversation parts. What I used to look forward to were the singing parts, especially when Deloris (Whoopi Goldberg) start teaching the nuns how to sing (properly). As I grew older, I realized a lot about this movie that it’s not only about singing, fun and entertainment. From Deloris’ struggles in the convent, trying to keep the real person that she is, her cravings for the night life, being hidden inside like a bird in a cage. For an outgoing and outspoken like Deloris, I can really relate how terrible it was to be kept inside, not only from being herself but her whole life.
