There are really just times when I enjoy being with myself, all alone - not that I don't like the feeling of being in a crowd or I don't enjoy talking with some good friends either. I just simply want to have my own time at my own pace. So during my solitude moments, aside from reading lots of random materials (what I used to do ever since I was in prep), I have also grown loving some good movies during the latter years of my life (2 years, to be exact. Cool, isn't it?!
Hahaha!) Thanks to my friends who never gave up on encouraging me that there are more beautiful movies beyond my hashtag favorite Tagalog Love Story flicks hashtag even if they almost have the same plots) I remembered how I just slept in the movie house when my friends were watching 2012, the movie. Haha! Case closed.
For the past two weeks, I got hooked watching some good films that really made sense to me. It was a great leap, for all you know. (If you just know how impatient I am - I immediately click the X button once I get to dislike the movie for the first few minutes and unfortunately find out later from my friends that the gist of the story happened some time after I gave up. Sad story!) Anyway, I am recommending the following flicks below just so when you want your spirit to be recharged from all the bummers you were up to. In case you have already watched all of them, good for you. Hahaha! Forgive me for being such a late bloomer in the realms of film fascination.
3. The Five People You Meet in Heaven
I watched this flick yesterday - just in time when I was discerning over something serious about my life. Honestly, I almost hit the X button ASAP because I thought that it was just another boring, preachy flick that will only remind me of my flaws, weaknesses and defeats. However, it turned out otherwise. The movie centered on forgiveness, aspirations and genuine happiness. You just have to see how every little aspect of our lives are interconnected. To quote, "There are no random acts. One act affects the life of the other."
2. Catch me if You Can
The film is based on the life of Frank Abagnale, Jr. who successfully cheated a number of people with his ultra awesome (in a bad way) fraudulent skills. The movie had me wow-ing like a kid lots of times. I never thought that a man like him could possibly exist in real life. Nevertheless, it wasn't just an action-packed film where you'll end up holding your breath if he'll be caught or what. It also tackled on family issues and how some crucial points in our lives create or break us into the persons that we would like to become.
1. Silver Linings Playbook
I cried a river in this romantic-comedy-drama film. I was a little bit annoyed though during the first few minutes because it kinda portrayed some bad vibes on earth - until I realized that the bad-vibe-feels of the movie was the very reason why the story line's truly unconventional. Two thumbs up! You know, we always have that eerie feeling that love stories contain the same essentials, hence, making them look like typical to each other... but but but, don't stereotype this flick's awesome love story. It has a very good plot, albeit a strange one.
Have a good day. I'll be watching more movies in a few. :)
