Miami Vice

6 Aug

I’m a fan of action flicks and MIAMI VICE was something we looked forward to. We watched MIAMI VICE yesterday in MegaMall. Behind the massive publicity it has been enjoying and a fabulous soundtrack to boot, I must admit that I was disappointed after watching it.

Sonny Crockett: You got to learn to go with the heart, Rico, it’s like life – you just gotta tell yourself that no matter how hot it is, sooner or later there’s a cool breeze blowing in.

Det. Ricardo Tubbs: Let me write that down.

The movie was 1/2 talking and babbling police/drug dealing jargons, while the other half had the typical characteristics of an action flick.

The second half was okay. The first half got me bored and confused.

β€œProbability is like gravity. You cannot negotiate with gravity.”
Sonny Crockett (Colin Farrell)

Aside from the speedy car chases, boat rides, I really enjoyed the last part of the movie where the good guys and the bad guys were shooting at each other. Splashing generously the internal organs and brains our skin delicately covers. It had no music background so it was ‘raw’. You can actually hear the guns thundering away and internal organs being squashed, mutilated… you know what I mean.

The actors obviously killed the antagonist but the love-drama part wasn’t a happy ending. I mean, why do two people have to let go even if they love each other? (Sorry, I’m a sucker for happy endings. This one didn’t give one.)

Liked the leading lady, Gong Li. Some people say she’s not at all beautiful. But for me, she had all the X-factor – charisma – beauty – intelligence – witty look going…

Overall, it’s an ok film (only on the later part of it). Recommended if you don’t get bored easily.


Nacho Libre Review

22 Jul

Just watched Nacho Libre yesterday. I needed a brief pause from my redundant life. I needed someone to make me laugh. I needed to watch the movie πŸ™‚

I won’t discuss what the movie is about. I know other bloggers will be blogging about that. I would just like to share you some quotes from the movie.

Nacho: I’m a little concerned right now. About… your salvation and stuff. How come you have not been baptized?
Esqueleto: Because I never got around to it ok? I dunno why you always have to be judging me because I only believe in science.

Senor Ramon: What is this?
Nacho: Leftovers. Enjoy.
Senor Ramon: There is no flavor. There are no spices. Where are the chips?
Nacho: Somebody stole them.
Senor Ramon: Did you not tell them that they were the Lord’s chips?
Nacho: I was trying to!
Senor Ramon: You are useless Ignacio!
Elderly Monk: Silence brothers! This is the worst lunch I ever had.
Senor Ramon: Your only job is to cook. Do you not realize I have had diarrhea since Easters?
Nacho: Ok… Maybe I am not meant for these duties. Cooking duty. Dead guy duty. Maybe it’s time for me to get a better duty!

Esqueleto: For reals?

Sister Encarnacion: Well, my favorite color is light tan. My favourite animal is puppies. I like serving the lord. Hiking, play volleyball…
Nacho: You gotta be kidding me. Everything you just said, is MY favourite thing to do, every day!

What really made me laugh was the scene where Nacho crept behind Esqueleto to pounce on him. But before Nacho can jump, he gave out a huge, noisy fart wakokoko… I like him, he is related to the sayote blog wakokoko…

Anyway another scene that really cracked me up is the note scene where he wrote to Sister Encarnacion. At the end of the letter, he wrote x x o o X O X o X x I think.. The small x represents a small kiss and the big X represents a big one. The O represents a hug. So the small o is a small hug. Ang the big O, a big hug. πŸ™‚

If you want to have a good laugh (I think everyone needs one), this movie is recommended πŸ™‚

I would also like to thank all those who visited my blog… For those who left their comments…

Thank you πŸ™‚ You guys make my day πŸ™‚ x x O O x x πŸ™‚
