Movie Date Vol. 38: Incredibles 2

June 26, 2018

It was Sunday. My kids received complimentary movie tickets for the four of us. They were excited. They wanted to watch the Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom movie. Unfortunately, I was sick. We didn’t get to watch it that day. Daddy had a little talk with the kids. They agreed to watch it on Monday, instead. But, yet, we didn’t make it again, the schedule was already late for the kids.

Tuesday. I was on leave. I asked my daughter, where’s the tickets. She was blank. She walked out of the room. When she got back, she had the saddest face ever. While extending her hand to me, she said “Mommy, I’m sorry. I messed up the tickets.”. When I looked at her hand, those were crumpled tickets, washed out. She left it in her skirt and it was already in the washer. Oh, I felt her. She’s sorry, she didn’t say anything. She just sit, thinking.

In the end, I decided to just go. Go out on a mommy-daughter date. But, we ended up watching The Incredibles 2.


Movie Date Vol. 37: Deadpool 2

May 16, 2018

This one’s a truly hilarious movie! This is what you might need if you still feel the pain brought about by the Avengers Infinity Wars movie. From being comedic to its movie soundtrack, it hadn’t disappointed. Wade Wilson humor was really there. I found myself laughing even if I’m quite sleepy. And you will still have to laugh at the end. See it!

Movie Date Vol. 36: Avengers Infinity War

May 04, 2018

More than a week after its premiere, the hype is almost over. Cinema was no longer crowded. We were less than 20 when we watched it.

For the past few days, I tried not to watch nor read anything related about Avengers. I wasn’t a fan. Just like what I always said, I’m just an ordinary movie-goer. I saw it then as if nothing happened because I easily forgot. But prior watching a movie, I preferred not to know anything about a movie. I appreciated it more if I will discover the story while watching.

With Avengers, I managed to not knew anything and it was good. The feeling of sadness because of the lost of too many main characters was fresh. I didn’t have any idea who’ll never make it nor who’ll survive. That’s what I liked.

About the story, I was quite lost. I’ll have to do a little digging to know what happened from the past. But, cinematically and visual-wise, movie creators have progressed so much, there was no way they can’t impressed us with their effects. I loved the battle in Wakanda. What else? The battle with Thanos in Titan. Hmmm… in Knowhere, in Scotland. Just every battle scenes, I think, were quite awesome.

I will be looking forward for more intense battles on the next instalment of the movie. For now, let’s all wish we do not get disintegrated while we wait.

Movie Date Vol. 35: Black Panther

Feb 16, 2018

As I have been always saying, I am just new to this Marvel world. I’m not used to stories of these greatest super heroes. And now, neither of the Black Panther’s. Anyways, I didn’t really care. It’s time to go out and de-stress. It was a busy week. The kids had already scheduled it, so we went.

I was deep in my thoughts. It was late for me to realise that the movie was already starting. What was I thinking? Huh? So, I wasn’t able to get the start of the story. I focused. I was trying to understand. I was serious. Then, they started breaking jokes. Oh, that’s the same way how they had attacked their other heroes’ story. Action-packed, that’s a given, and, inserting humour, which I liked.

For me, I have enjoyed the movie. It has a heart. I got a few notes, actually. Leadership is not just being strong. It is also not just for the strong. Leadership was not just being able to lead. It has to have compassion. It has to care. Alright? 🙂

Movie Date Vol. 34: Fifty Shades Freed

Feb 09, 2018

To complete the series, we went out to see the third and final chapter of the movie based on the novel written by E.L. James. I remembered, when I was reading the book I loved its last installment but it didn’t feel the same way in this movie. For me, it was good but it’s missing a piece.
