It Takes a Man and a Woman

What is the latest movie that you have watched? Mine is: It Takes a Man and a Woman

It Takes a Man and a Woman Movie

It’s a feel-good movie that I won’t regret watching. I’m not a big fan of Sarah Geronimo and John Lloyd Cruz but their tandem never fails me to tickle me. Hehehe. I’m giggling right now because there were lots of “kilig” moments. I can relate to their love story especially that I have also watched A Very Special Love and You Changed my Life.

Though this is a nice rom-com film, I can’t help it but criticize some of their scripts. For one, you shouldn’t deliver a Tagalog speech if you have foreigners e.g. US citizens as your audience who just became your business partner. How could they understand it??? Two, you don’t propose to your gf’s parents and go English-speaking all through out. I mean, they have low profile being shoemakers. Fine if they could understand English, but wouldn’t it be more appropriate to be humble?

And for that, I’m giving this movie 8/10 rating. :)



It takes a man and a woman and one magic moment
To know they’re in heaven
It takes a man and a woman to feel what we’re feelin’
And aint it a miracle that you’d take a woman like me
To love a man like you


Metro Manila Film Festival 2010

I haven’t watched any MMFF movie yet and people around me are recommending RPG METANOIA. Among the different films screened since Christmas day, I don’t have any top pick. Maybe because I’m over the usual Filipino movie tricks or our so called cinematography. I might just wait to have my own home theater and watch the said movies with my family at home. As for RPG Metanoia, I think it would be worth watching in 3D! Hmmm, I might start reading movie reviews now…

RPG Metanoia

Live your life the way you want it to be! RPG now!

Korean Movies Ready for CD Burning

I have lots of pending movies to be burned on a CD or DVD. To mention a few, I have My Rainy Days and A Moment To Remember. The rest are Japanese series and anime.

Even if I have my own downloaded copies of this cool movie on my laptop, I still wish to have original copies. I’ve heard that there’s a great blu ray sale online! Among the all time favorites are Lord of The Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Sherlock Holmes. Elvis fans can also enjoy great discounts. As for me, I might go for the featured Batman anthology.

Orphan Movie

Looks can be deceiving...

I know what’s wrong. She’s no longer a kid but a grown up woman with mental illness and hormonal disorder. Though I was not able to watch the entire movie, I already knew the story. The last 20 minutes of this show told me everything. Plus, my sister recounted some scenes as we go through the last part of the Orphan movie.

The suspense and thrill are more on Esther’s threat to the family. Tragic ending but I was able to bear with it. Funny though, I had my sister accompany me to the CR before sleeping. Scared? Haha.

Best Japanese Movie: My Rainy Days

I thought A Moment To Remember will remain number one on my list. But after watching My Rainy Days, everything has changed. I fell in love with Nozomi Sasaki and that movie is now my favorite. Best favorite, to be exact. Haha.

Sweet Reward

Let’s have some fun here. Below are the screen shots of my favorite scenes. How did Rio and Kouki end up kissing in the library? Back track starting from the movie poster above. (In reverse order)

My Rainy Days  - Library Kiss

Kilig to the max!

Oh gosh, I was uber kilig and blushing while watching. It’s one of the sweetest things a guy could do! Haha. I really really love the way it happens. Yeah, it just happens. Watch it and you’ll get what I mean. :)


Gotcha! She finally got his attention!

Pretty Bored! Literally...

Study time, not play time!

Unlike the romance movies I’ve watched before, My Rainy Days is an all-in-one chick flick that’s worth countless replays! Oh yeah, I can’t get over this film! It features not only love but also friendship, family virtues, work passion and other challenges. A slice of life in some sort.

Love is definitely the  great catalyst of all times. Because of her feelings toward Kouki (Shosuke Tanihara), Rio leaves her own self behind. But she’s still the pushy, aggressive yet delicate type that Kouki learned to love. Kouki in turn becomes less anti-social and start having hope because of Rio. You see, even the simple mistakes are meant to take place. If not with the wrong photos sent to them, those two won’t meet that fateful rainy day… Err, in fact they had their unofficial encounters when Rio was 14 (at the hospital) and 17(at the bar).

I really enjoyed this simple yet moving story. How will you treasure the sweet memories that are about to fade? How will you keep loving someone who is about to forget everything including you? Such a torture, right? Rio is brave enough to start all over again. Her rainy days are not all about  tears rolling down her cheeks but also having Kouki back in her arms.

My Rainy Days – a must watch movie!
