The Last Song

The Last SongI read the book a couple months ago and didn’t like it that much. The pace of the story is pretty slow but hey, it’s by the author of “The Notebook”, that sort of give me a nudge to finish the book.

The movie is about a NYC girl, Ronnie (short for Veronica) moving to the south met a boy with a dark secret, how they both fall in love with each other and how Ronnie and her dad patch things up through music. The story did get pretty sad and emotional towards the end when her dad’s cancer claimed his life.

Bobby Coleman (Jonah) totally bring the movie alive. On the other hand, I still can’t imagine Miley Cyrus being anything other than Hannah Montana. Is it me or is Miley Cyrus lips are getting more pouty-ier? 🙂

The movie is definitely geared more towards kids over 12 years old.

Clash of the Titans

Clash of the TitansMy friend told me that this is a remake of an old movie. I have not seen the original movie so I can’t actually compare them. From all the reviews I have read so far, they all seems to agree that the original was way better. I guess I just need to rent the DVD and find out.

Gemma Arterton, who has a soothing voice, narrates the movie. I am looking forward for her in Prince of Persia. I still have Sam Worthington as Avatar image in my mind and his performance didn’t stand out either. However, Ralph Fiennes is good (or bad) being Hades.

I saw the movie in 2D, 3D might be a bit too much for me. I wasn’t expecting any laughs in an action-filled movie but I did. The CGI sometimes did get blurry and wasn’t that high quality. Overall, it met my expectations.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Diary of a Wimpy KidI personally haven’t read the book however my 7-year-old daughter, Amanda loves the book series.

Middle school in the US sounds and looks scary. All the kids are trying so hard to fit in, be popular, and those who don’t fit in get picked on.

The movie however did get a few laugh-out-loud from me. Perfect cast for Greg and Rowley. They integrated the illustration into the movie to make it more interesting, sort of like Lizzie McGuire. Overall, the movie will not be one of the big box-office movie.

My grade: B-

How to Train Your Dragon

How to Train Your DragonTwo thumbs up for “How to Train Your Dragon”.

The movie is based on the books by Cressida Cowell. It is about a young geeky viking, Hiccup, who wants to fill his dad’s shoes as a dragon hunter. Everyone in the community often embarrassed by Hiccup. He befriends a dragon named Toothless and was able to learn new things about dragons from a different perspective. It is very interesting to see the different types of dragon animated creatively with each its own specialty feature.

Jay Baruchel and Gerard Butler did a fantastic job doing the voices of Hiccup and Stoick. Gobber (Craig Ferguson) is such a lovable and comical character in the movie.

Watching the movie in 3D makes it totally worth it especially during the flying lesson between Hiccup and Toothless.

My grade: A+

My First Post

This is my first post on my new blog. This is my first attempt on blogging and my new year resolution. I am going to try to keep this site updated as often as I can and hopefully with this blog to keep me focus and helping me to put my ideas down as well as discover more about myself.

I am diagnosing myself with ADHD because I keep going back and forth with “maybe this, maybe that”. I don’t have much perseverance either and I am trying very hard to get rid of this bad habit.

Well, that’s it, my first post.
