My 2015 in Movies


I started to fell in love with movies when I was a graduating student back in college, year 2012. Since I was about to graduate and I was able to take some subjects in advance, I had quite a lot of time, especially on my last term. That's when I started to devoting my time to movies  apart from books and blogging of course. I was even blogging about movie reviews, movie marathons (Disney, Zooey Deschanel, Mario Maurer, etc etc.) before, but then again, adulthood and responsibilities that comes with it happened...

Movie Marathon | Interstellar


I have always been into movies especially when I was still a fresh grad and unemployed (bum). Blogging about all the movies I have watched (movie marathon) has been my hobby back then. But, ever since I got a job (and it's been more than 2 years now since I had it), I totally forgot about it. It's only late last year when I revamped my blog and decided to bring it to life that I got into blogging about the movies I watch again. However, since I have a job and I'm quite a hard time juggling everything in my life, I wasn't able to maintain this habit of mine.

Now, since I've been making it a point to watch a movie every week, I want to bring back that habit again. To make it simpler, I'm going to be blogging about the movies I watch every week. I'm doing this just for my purest intention of having fun and being able to look at all the things I've been doing and watching in the past, maybe someday.

Let's start with the week of January 1 to 4...

TMH Playlist | Begin Again OST

I previously posted about the movie "Begin Again" a few weeks ago, and until now, their official soundtrack still got me hooked. Who wouldn't?? With Adam Levine's influence (don't get me wrong, the guy can really sing!) plus a very unique sound that this album has to offer, I'm pretty sure you'll have the last song syndrome to at least one or two songs.

Movie Marathon | Two Night Stand (2014)

Ever since the movie Project X (2012), it seems like Miles Teller was always on big screen—the guy practically has more than two movies in a year! For 2013, he was the lead for The Spectacular Now along with Shailene Woodley; and then there's another movie called 21 & Over. For 2014, he was in WhiplashThat Awkward Moment with Zac Efron and Michael B. Jordan; he was also in Divergent with Shailene Woodley again; and this movie, Two Night Stand with Annaleigh Tipton (Crazy, Stupid, Love). 

Warning, spoilers ahead!

Movie Marathon | Begin Again (2013)

Begin Again

It's been a while since I posted on this blog of mine, so allow me to share my thoughts about this movie I just watched yesterday/last night--since it took me and the boyfriend a while to finish this, because we decided to watch it while on their way to his sister's birthday celebration.

So, let's get down to business. If you've been listening to the radio or if you're using Spotify app to listen to music--and have come across the Top 100 Songs playlist, chances are, you also came across with this new Adam Levine song entitled "Lost Stars". Since it's good, it leaves you wanting for more, and wondering and asking "What album is this from?"


Movie Marathon | The Giver (2014)

image

The Giver is a 2014 movie based on the book of the same title by Lois Lowry. It's one of those YA fiction novels about rebellion and teenagers or young adults who fight for what's right. There's The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins, the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth and The Host by Stephenie Meyer.

What's amazing, is how star-studded this movie is. Featuring Jeff Bridges as The Giver, Meryl Streep as the Chief Elder (president), Brenton Thwaites as Jonas (the next "Giver"), Alexander Skarsgard as Jonas' Father, Katie Holmes as Jonas' Mother, Odeya Rush as Fiona (the love interest), Cameron Monaghan as Asher and Taylor Swift as Rosemary (The Givers' daughter) among others.

Warning: Potential spoilers ahead!

Reliving Breaking Dawn Part 1


          Because I can't wait for Breaking Dawn part II!!! :) Oh, here are my favorite scenes from Part I:






Movie Marathon | The Hot Chick


This is one funny movie from Rob Schneider and probably, Rachel McAdams' introductory movie.  I like how the guy respects Rachel's character here, although she thinks he only wants to have sex with him, which believe it or not, isn't true. You know, guys like him are rare--has respect for girls especially their girlfriends. But oh well. This one's a good watch! :) 

Here are some of my favorite lines/quotes and scenes from this movie:

Zooey Deschanel Movie Marathon | Part IV


Wow. This is another movie oozing with "good vibes". I mean, hello, aside from it's THE Jim Carrey, there's also Zooey Deschanel! I mean, she's so adorable. :) Jim and Zooey looked good together! This is one good movie, I loved watching it! :)

Movie Marathon | Blue Valentine

Blue Valentine

"Blue Valentine" is yet another addition to Ryan Gosling's growing list of good movies. I mean, wow. The Notebook, All Good Things, Crazy Stupid Love, and this one--they're all my favorite movies! Can't wait to watch more of his movies. The more I watch a Ryan Gosling movie, the more I like him. Haha. Srsly. He is one good actor. For me, he is really good in portraying matured/old man (30 to 40 years old) roles. Just, wow.

Movie Marathon | A Cinderella Story 2 and 3


Didn’t know that Hilary Duff’s A Cinderella Story has sequels! Anyhow, I’m done watching PART 2: Another Cinderella Story starring Selena Gomez, and PART 3: Once Upon A Song starring Lucy Hale!!! OMG, I didn’t even know that Lucy Hale can sing great!
Part 2, Another Cinderella Story (2008) which stars Selena Gomez, sucks. Not even close or comparable to the original A Cinderella Story, Hilary Duff’s.
Part 3, Once Upon A Song (2010) which stars Lucy Hale is the bomb! Well, it’s good, the songs and artists were greater than than of the second one, I must say. Lucy Hale sings great as well as his leading man! Just didn’t get the idea why the stepmother needs to say something negative about the Filipino prisoners dancing. That scene, boooooooo. This movie just reminded me of Camp Rock.

Movie Marathon | Romeo + Juliet (1996)

Romeo + Juliet

The past few weeks, I’ve been hooked with William Shakespeare’s works, and what a coincidence-I've had the movie “Romeo+Juliet (1996)” last year, but I haven’t watched it yet, so I decided to watch it the other day. Photos below are screencaps of some of my favorite scenes from the movie.

Zooey Deschanel Movie Marathon | Part III


          It's been like 2 months since I've watched and continued with my "Zooey Deschanel Movie Marathon". Blame my hectic schedule. Ha ha! Anyhow, here's the third movie I've watched, "The Go-Getter". 

Movie Marathon | Crazy, Stupid, Love

 

          It's just funny how ironic love can be sometimes: Crazy, Stupid, Love. Steve Carell, Julianne Moore and Emma Stone... Hnngg... BTW. My favorite screen caps are shown below. (Oh Ryan Gosling~ :">)

Movie Marathon | Definitely, Maybe

 

Last week, I watched the movie, "Definitely, Maybe" starring Ryan Reynolds. <3 I downloaded it because I thought Zooey Deschanel was in here since this movie appeared when I googled for her movies. That's why I was really waiting for her appearance, a cameo at least, but nope. Finally, I realized that Zooey wasn't really there until I finished watching the movie.
