THE LAKE HOUSE
I watched the movie the other night at the market market cinema. I have seen the Original version of the movie (Il Marie).I hate to compare the American with the Korean version because it is given na iba talaga ang original.But I cant help it.Mas maganda talaga 'yung story line nung girl sa il mare, kesa dun sa lakehouse.I think hindi maganda yung pagfollowthrough nila ng events given the consequences with knowing past and future.Ang daming questionable part ng plot.'Yung ibang friends ko na nakapanood, sa una daw hindi nila magets ung kuwento.Although I think may chemistry si keanu Reeves and sandra Bullock,kulang 'yung kilig factor ng movie.Basing from what I felt after watching Il mare.I like the soundtrack though and that part where sandra and keannu were dancing then they kissed.I will still recommend you to watch this feel good movie.
My rating: 6/10
last week naman I watched three movies on DVD - The Little Chinese seamstress, memoirs of Geisha and Pasiyam.So here are my review.
THE LITTLE CHINESE SEAMSTRESS
Maganda ang plot, although hindi kami close ni mao,balzac at Mozart at hindi ako makarelate sa mga komunismo na binabanggit sa movie,para sakin epektibo ang paghahatid ng mensahe ng pelikula tungkol sa edukasyon at liberalismo.The movie tackles about the liberating power of books,western novels in particular.Para sakin astig ang mga ganitong klaseng pelikula na may laman na kaunting history.
I dunno pero bigla kong naisip yung old Tagalog movie na Virgin people.Siguro dahil yung pagkakahawig ng karakter ng bidang babae na inosente tapos biglang nagrebelde nung nakapakinig siya ng liberal ideas dahil sa mga binabasa sa kanyang libro.Alam ko walang sense ang pinagsasasabi ko pero panoorin niyo ito.
My rating: 7/10
MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA
I thought the movie is in japanese with english subtitle pero nagulat ako dahil nagsasalita ng English ang mga characters.Sana it was in japanese na lang kasi I think the fact that, with none of them being native English speakers, some characters never came across fluidly, may parang language barrier.Sa palagay ko lang mas maidedeliver ng maganda ang mga lines if it was said on their native tongue.I heard this was based on a book so i was expecting na maganda yung movie adaptation niya.I was not disappointed.I enjoyed watching it.
Magagaling ang mga artistang gumanap sa pelikula like Michelle yeoh and also yung bidang batang babae sa simula ng pelikula.Most of the actors naman did a great job when it comes to acting.The pacing and story is good.The cinematography is ok and the setting, makikita mo talaga ung culture ng japanese.So overall this movie is worth watching.
My rating: 7/10
The movie is okay,the visuals and cinematographywise.Magaling na direktor si Eric matti.And magaling din na artista si Roderick paulate.There were scenes that are scary and disturbing but there was too much dialogue when the visuals should've been explanation enough.Ayoko ng ganung movies na puro salita, if I want that di sana nagbasa na lang ako ng libro.Inantok na ako bago matapos ang pelikula.
My rating : 4/10
