I am not fond of movie reviews so I’ll just write about my personal impressions about movies that have come out here in my city for the past two weeks.

Mad Max: Fury Road

I vaguely remember the Mad Max movies in the 1980s as being starred by Mel Gibson and I have heard it was a cult classic. I’ve seen the trailer a few times for Mad Max: Fury Road and doubted myself to be able to appreciate a post-apocalyptic theme. But I was floored from start to finish with MM:FF as everything was in constant motion while delivering a storyline as consistently moving. I love the play of duality being shown in the movie – the arid desert they travel through during the day and the soft bluish moonlit atmosphere at night, the patriarch-ruled Citadel and how women came out of hiding to fight as well. Nothing about the movie was as barren as the desert they traversed in.

Pitch Perfect 2

I had planned to watch PP2 first before MM:FF but it ended up the other way around and because as an afterthought I considered MM:FF to be a real cinematic gem, I had to postpone watching Pitch Perfect 2 for 4 days even though I had been looking forward to watching PP2 for months.

I was a Glee fan and it wasn’t hard to love the sequel to Pitch Perfect. I ROTFL’ed throughout the whole movie as that is what it’s supposed to accomplish.

Spy

It’s no secret I love Jason Statham’s movies even though I’ve seen few where he’s ill-fittingly starred in. On the other hand, I like to see actors not being typecasted too much so Spy was refreshing to watch because Statham’s role is toned down from the usual action star types we see him in. It was my first time to see a Melissa McCarthy movie and I first thought it was an interesting combination. Three days after watching the movie I still find myself secretly laughing at funny scenes from the said movie. Very entertaining!

Tomorrowland

Without reading too much into the movie subject, I knew Tomorrowland would appeal to the never-give-up daydreamer character in me. I watched this in Dolby ATMOS (my first time to watch in this technology) and I could say my money was worth it, although sometimes I get this feeling that the science of Tomorrowland was too much to squeeze in a two-hour movie. It made me miss Disney World, too.

Until next movie-viewing!

I love Fridays these past few months because of Glee and American Idol.

Glee’s episode today was about Guilty Pleasures. I like most of the song covers by far and ironically the episode title reminded me a lot of how the show has been kind of a guilty pleasure also for me. One of my friends was amused that I still watch Glee at my age but sort of took back what he said by saying it probably means that I like musicals and that I am good-natured. Whatever. What I missed though in today’s episode is Mr. Schu.

American Idol is now down to 8 finalists after the Lennon & McCartney songbook performances. America said good-bye to jolly Paul Jolley and the judges did not use their one save for the season. And rightfully so. I think he should be on Glee. Paging Ryan Murphy! I like Lazaro Arbos but many who saw how he performed “In My Life” the night before would expect him to be in the bottom 3. Surprisingly Lazaro was uber safe. Devin Velez and Amber Holcomb did not get enough votes to evade being in the bottom 3. Among the top 10, no girl has been eliminated so far.

Everyone in the house was glued to the screen when Filipino pride American Idol runner up Jessica Sanchez performed her single, Tonight, from her album with Ne-Yo. It’s amazing how she got a handful of endorsements here in the Philippines within a short time since Season 11 ended. On the other hand it’s not surprising because many of the Philippines’ big honchos do want to cash in on an international star like her.

Jessica also announced she will soon be seen on Glee. Can’t wait!
