Just updated the list of films I might watch or wanna watch this year – HERE

The past few days, besides from obsessing over watching the Celtic Woman concert DVD, I watched a few films. First in the list are two Canadian indies, both very similar in casting, and both pretty good.

Eighteen tells the story of Pip, an apathetic Canadian middle-upper class who decides to live in the street due to several reasons. On his 18th birthday, he receives a tape with a recording of his grandfather (voiced by Ian Mckellan), who tells Pip about his 18th birthday spent on the run during war time. – The film is quite a good drama, definitely worth a watch. Loved Carly Pope, Paul Anthony and Brendan Fletcher (both of them were on The Adventures of Shirley Holmes). – 4.5/5

Next was Everyone, an odd dark comedy, that also counts with the talent of Pope and Fletcher. This film is about a gay couple who’s getting married, and all their guests for the event, including a failed TV actor who hates kids, his anorexic actress wife, a pot-smoking-couple who spent their time playing video games, a mom who’s desperate for a grandchild, her picked-up-from-the-bus-stop guest, and a caterer that just can’t stop talking. Carly Pope has a few great one-liners in this film xD – 4/5

The Fountain was just plain awesome to watch. The visuals of the film are superb, and the story is so freaking out there – some will hate it, some will love it for sure. The film is about a couple dealing with death, parallel in three different times. HOWEVER, it can also have a different interpretation. It’s really open, but it’s good because it’s different to so many films. – 4/5

And last but no least… Pirates 3. It was a decent film, the effects and action sequences were great as expected. Davy Jones looked as great as Pirates 2, Barbosa was decent, and Jack was great as always. The film didn’t work out for me because I had an issue with introducing all those international pirates, and not using them. What a waste! Even if Chow Yun Fat was pretty good in his few minutes of film – I wish he could’ve been more important. It was just pure filler – and I wished for Elizabeth to just be an independent woman, captain of Sao Feng’s vessel, and king of all pirates~ I hated she had to marry… and I sorta disliked I got an expected ‘happily ever after’ ending. Besides, Jack/Elizabeth kiss on Pirates 2 was hot. Hands down. Lol – 3/5

For your viewing pleasure… I present to you “E Ha’i Ana Wau” by Hawaiian group Green Light Go! Thanks to Kamuela Kahoano who sent me the lyrics! You can find a full review of their debut album HERE.

Debe ser sexy

Traducción de un artículo “Sexiness a must for today’s lady singers” por Nekesa Mumbi Moody. (link aquí)

Ella fue un “gran talento,” una joven cantante con maravillosa voz que escribió bellas canciones. Pero no era una belleza, además era plana y tenía sobrepeso para empeorar las cosas.

Recordando a la estrella aspirante, la ejecutiva musical, Jody Gerson sigue sintiéndose terrible de pensar: “Nunca encontrará disquera, a pesar de ser fabulosa.”

Gerson podrá sentirse aún peor después de la salida de la noche del miércoles de Melinda Doolittle de “American Idol.” En la industria musical de hoy, las chicas del montón no necesitan presentarse. Sex appeal fue una vez considerado un bonus en una mujer, ahora es prácticamente un requerimiento.

The Number 31!

May 17, 2007 — 2 Comments

Lol, I saw The Number 23 – and even though it was not a very good movie, I still had to go to the imdb and vote! – I’ve been checking out the boards, and found a topic about some number 23 ‘freaky’ stuff. Well, mine seems to be The Number 31! Lol xD

Check this out, IMDB ID for Number 23 was 481369:
4 + 8 + 1 + 3 + 6 + 9 = 31

The sum of my birthdate is:
x = 31

The ID number for the post I was reading of ‘freaky’ stuff was 65785739 page 35:
6 + 5 + 7 + 8 + 5 +7 + 3 + 9 + 3 + 5 = 58… 5 + 8 = 13 <- 31 reversed.

Today’s date is May 17, 2007 – 17052007:
17 + 5 + 2 +7 = 31 or 17 + 5 + 2007 = 2029… 2 + 2 + 9 = 13 <- 31 reversed.

Will maybe continue doing this crazy later, lol – I’m going to bed now.

Edit with more 31s.

I couldn’t sleep well last night. I saw the clock, and it was 5:31
The sum of my phone number is = 31
I was scoring videos for a competition for two categories. One of the averages was 7.45 and the other 6.45 – 7 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 4 + 5 = 31

Well, my music video knowledge is very limited, but these are a couple of the trivia that I know by heart:

  • The first EVER music video aired on MTV was “Video Killed the Radio Star” by, if I recall correctly, The Bugles.
  • “Thriller” by Michael Jackson was the first ever Music Video-Turned Short Film.
  • The first ever Music Video I remember watching is “Remember the Time” by Michael Jackson – another short film/music vid!
