Rooftop Prince Review:

It's very rare for me to make reviews with Korean Dramas. I usually watched them in television but since lately I seldom did (because of pressures from work), I only had chance to watch them online if I had spare time.

Honestly speaking, I would never had the interest to watch it if not of my sister. She said that this drama was so hilarious that I "must" watch it, haha. It's more like a command than recommendation though. It flickered interest in me, and just last night I decided to watch it.

I'm way too far halfway but the first few episodes are more than enough to set my mind to watch it all the way no matter how long it will take☺. And I never, even a bit, did regret watching it despite the fact that I got horrible eye bags in my face. I also yawned always, almost every hour at my work. Nonetheless, it was nothing to me. What's more important is I have to finish watching it.

«Movie Review» Chinese Zodiac: Jackie Chan's Last Action Movie

Due to my reckless decision together with a friend of mine, we ended up watching Chinese Zodiac (CZ12) of Jackie Chan on its first day of showing. Reportedly, it turned out to be his last major action-adventure movie. Chinese Zodiac was written, directed, produced and starred by Jacke Chan himself.

Chinese Zodiac 2012 by Jackie Chan

Chinese Zodiac was shown here in Philippines yesterday, January 30, 2013 and fortunately, we were able to witnessed Jackie Chan's last grandest action film he has ever made. It was shot in 8 countries and 5 continents around the world! Whoah! If that is something more to be proud of.

“I want to let the audience know that this is my last big action movie. I don’t like to die on the set. I want to continue filming,” said Jackie. “Maybe on my next movie, I don’t have to roll over, jump over the building, or jump off the car. I want to try drama or be casted in a love story” source:
So to clear things up, this is not gonna be his final casting in the movie. That's right! Glad to hear that! He should maim himself away from action movies as he is really getting older. He must have some self-pity for his body. Poor rich guy☺

«Movie Review» Life of Pi: A Journey of a Lifetime

life of pi indian movie review

I saw the trailer of Life of Pi last year when I watched a movie back then. I was held captive by the excellent visual effects shown in the trailer and got quite excited when I discovered that he'll trail an audacious epic journey amidst the ocean with a — tiger? How dangerous and exciting it can be! Right there and then, I made a promise to myself that I'll definitely watch it for sure. It was supposed to be shown last year but was delayed due to some reasons I don't know. And finally, last night was the realization of that promise. 

Together with my friends, we took the Last Full Show of Life of Pi in 3D. There were quite plenty of people watching the movie.
