I made time to watch this 3rd movie from Sam Mendes. I liked American Beauty and Road to Perdition and it seems that his choice of actors with all 3 movies were excellent. Kevin Spacey, Tom Hanks, Paul Newman and now, Jake Gylenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard. When I first saw the trailer months ago, I was hooked with it's music, Jesus Walks. I knew this was a drama though, coming from Mendes even thought the trailer looked like it had so much action. Well, after watching the DVD, I was really blown away with it's intensity. The cast was great! The film is about the life of Marines in the Gulf War and I must say, it ain't easy being one. But I loved how the characters interacted, looked for each other, the bond they created and everything else. The look of the movie is very bright and dirty at the same time. You'll be seeing mostly whites and desert except for some scenes like the oil rain. This isn't an expert review, just raving about the movie. Jke Gylenhaal's performance as intense and to be honest, I wasn't aware he could be that intense. He seems to be such a gentle character but here, all gloves are off. My favorite actor here though, is Peter Saarsgard as Troy. Mysterious character this one is. Watch it if you have time... or likeme, make time for it.
Blog marathon ha! Updates galore! Hehehe!

Made in the Philippines!!!
GRIP STAND THROW was Sandwich's frist album... not Sugar Hiccup. At least they got the second album right.
If the companies who produce these want us to patronize their products, buy original cds/dvd/vcds, they should really make it a point that it's worth it! Man, at least with pirated copies, you kind of expect these things. But even with the originals?! I always make it a point to buy original cds from our local bands. For support, for them to keep making good music and topple Screaming Regine off the charts. But I was really disappointed and will not buy the other 2 in 1 releases. Too bad.
Marvel has a new storyarc running right now. Civil War. It cme as a surprise to me since I have stopped buying comics since buying DVDs... and I never completed DC's Crisis on Infinite Earths since I could never really relate to the characters (Some of the characters have funny names, if a character has powers of electricity, he'll be called The ElectricityMan or General Electric!). But Marvel is Marvel. These are characters we know and love, at least for me. After a tense debate by our beloved superheroes, it was inevitable to have 2 opposing sides. This is definitely a must read. Superheroes vs. superheroes!
Current favorite drink: Fuzion's Pepermint FrosTea.

For Star Wars news, this year on September 12 to December, we'll see the Original Trilogy on DVD as it was seen in the theaters in 1977. Read on!
From Star Wars.com
Fans can look forward to a September filled with classic Star Wars nostalgia, led by the premiere of LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy video game and the long-awaited DVD release of the original theatrical incarnations of the classic Star Wars trilogy.
In response to overwhelming demand, Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will release attractively priced individual two-disc releases of Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Each release includes the 2004 digitally remastered version of the movie and, as bonus material, the theatrical edition of the film. That means you'll be able to enjoy Star Wars as it first appeared in 1977, Empire in 1980, and Jedi in 1983.
[ doc_title ] This release will only be available for a limited time: from September 12th to December 31st. International release will follow on or about the same day. Each original theatrical version will feature Dolby 2.0 Surround sound, close-captioning, and subtitles in English, French and Spanish for their U.S. release. International sound and subtitling vary by territory.
"Over the years, a truly countless number of fans have told us that they would love to see and own the original version that they remember experiencing in theaters," said Jim Ward, President of LucasArts and Senior Vice President of Lucasfilm Ltd. "We returned to the Lucasfilm Archives to search exhaustively for source material that could be presented on DVD. This is something that we're very excited to be able to give to fans in response to their continuing enthusiasm for Star Wars. Topping it off with a new interactive adventure makes September 12 a red-letter day for Star Wars fans."
Good news indeed! I'll be saving up on this new set! May the Force be with us!!! (Btw, yesterday was Star Wars Day. Unofficially. May the Fourth be with you! Hehehe!)
