Cloverfield and other freaky monsters

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

we watched the Cloverfield red carpet premiere last night in Cinema 1 of SM Megamall and at first I thought that everyone will be in Glorietta 4, so I take a great chance to line up late and get a great seating position in watching this movie. Me and Lace ate our dinner in Jollibee then proceed quickly to line up for the movie premiere.

you can click and read below my comments and experience about the movie - Cloverfield

We are so excited to watch this movie and waited since last year the trailer went out and just followed some cloverfield investigators in the net getting clues and taking a short guess on what's the monster's figure and appearance. Many people speculated and lots of images and fan art came out just to show what will the monster look like. There's an early illustration that the monster is like a whale giant monster, then someone in Youtube posted a video commentary that the monster is Manhattan itself, wow! these concepts are really great! but the main Cloverfield monster is still a mystery and we don't know where it cam from.

The movie
I like to post more about the movie, but I just don't want to spoil everyone about the story.
my tips will be, just sit at the back, because the videography style might get you dizzy. But for me I didn't experience any dizziness because I'm so entertained on the story line and some comedy during the disaster scenes. Just focus on the movie in order not to get dizzy, don't roll your eyes just aim your attention on the people being documented.

My review
This is the best monster movie ever! Wow! Godzilla will be so sorry and will be beaten by this unnamed monster aka Cloverfield monster. There's a lot of scenes of the monster and don't worry, you will see it all, not only the monsters (with an "s") and also the military fighting it.
The blaire witch project style had evolved into something and maybe in the future style of cinema, everyone will have a movie focusing only the human perspective view. The Cloverfield drag a lot followers and now a cult following. I just saw this George Romero: Diary of the Dead trailer in youtube and it has the same videography style for the movie. For a monster fan, Cloverfield is the movie that will erased other monster films. ( I love Godzilla, and still will be in my heart)

the rant
it seems that many are disappointed in the film, I was laughing inside the cinema to hear a lot of pissed off people. Many of them aren't aware about the movie, and about the movie style. Some of them didn't saw the trailer. the people at my back and my seatmate on the right sucks! they rant during the movie. which is very distracting, my seatmate always use his cellphone, they began to get bored before the monster appeared and also many complained that they get dizzy.

ahhahaah! i just wished that they leave the cinema right away, because they are expecting some hollywoodish cinema style and then they get a videocam style movie for 2 hours. many people rant on the characters, which is like they don't know that they are in the cinema and people there get disturbed in their stupid actions. feels like that this movie is not fit for ordinary pinoys.

funny to hear them, but i didn't take it anymore and then made a big "shhhhhhhhh!" to them.
at the end of the movie, they still rant ahahaha, and me...laughing at them! hahahaha.
its like the time were the Lord of the rings: Fellowship of the ring movie came out on its first screening, many of them are pissed to see that the movie is to be continued hahahaha.

The monster
Can't post more about it, just watch it later. think of the animated cartoons "Inhumanoids"

Easter Eggs
I know there are lots of it in the movie. During the end credits of the movie, just wait til it is finished and wait for the voice after the credits. There is also a scene at the end of the movie, some says that there is an activity or movements in the ocean, too bad didn't saw it.

also I just noticed that there are a lot of toxic waste or biohazard labeled canisters or drums in the public alley of Manhattan, I think due to the spills of toxic waste, it attracted the monster to Manhattan.

Ultimate guess
hmmm, I think the monster is like a project save Earth animal hahahaa.
think of why it destroyed the ship near the statue of Liberty and the Chuai station.
hmm maybe the monster doesn't like toxic wastes.

yeah! I got a theatrical poster of Cloverfield movie! wohohoho! i little stuff to add my movie poster collection.

the photos.

here we are in random order hahaaha

Aliens and Predators are inlove to each other

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
Just watched AVP2 and I blew all my afternoon task at home and work, because of too much excitement I'm getting excited to see the 3rd installment of AVP. The movie is great like in the Dark Horse comics. read below on some of my comments about the movie

The movie is not your ordinary sci fi movie or a monster movie. For me its a horror movie. The 2nd movie is very much different from the 1st movie or their other movies. Its like reading the Dark Horse comic books, for a fan and reader of Aliens vs. Predator, the movie for me is like a dream come true. The Killing never stops and more blood were put on. I just don't know what the writers think of when they create this story line.

Its very freaky to see some part of the scene were Aliens and the Predalien landed in a community hospital and there they continue to slaughter and then multiply. So freaky and a little bit disturbing. I know an Alien lover or fan really likes it, but for me it is too much already.
One scene a Predalien attacks and planted eggs to a pregnant lady and theres a scene were a nurse was eaten by an alien near the nursery. so freaky and I'm glad that they didn't showed it.

the ending of the movie opened up for another possible movie 3 and I like the idea that the future for AVP will be reshaped, now I'm wondering that the future marines will be more powerful than the marines in Aliens. While for the Predator world, they became much more stronger and also a real hunter.

Seeing a Predator hunts the Aliens was great. seeing all those gadgets and weapons really amazes me. But for part 2 we see one Predator only in a mission to avenge the death of his comrade and a mission to take home a new breed creature - the Predalien.

AVP movie is a big dream during my high school days, now I wish for a Robocop versus Terminator movie. or Jason Vs. Ash vs. Freddy.

Happy Birthday Mom!

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
opppsss! that's my spoon and fork!

Today is my mom's birthday, so in the blogging way, Im greeting her a Happy Birthday.

Last Wednesday the food monster trio went out to celebrate my mom's birthday and we decided to check out a music bar and restaurant in Ortigas near Home Depot. The bar is called Mulligan, I just got an invite from Ann Sevilla, the owner of the bar, and she told me to check out her bar and I just got an idea to celebrate my mom's day in there while we do the occular inspection. hehhee checking out new venue for an upcoming event.

we arrived there at 5:30pm and we are the only customers in there because it is too early for a beer night out, we dine some hot caldereta, sisig and some beers. Then we got a free nacho set from the owner. We tried the videoke, and there I tried to become the lead singer of Incubus hahhaha.

We always celebrate my mom's birthday even that she's not here in Manila, we tried to celebrate it in a different way just to have fun and fill our empty stomach with great food. hehhee maybe next year we can celebrate it in a beach hehhehe. She takes care home and also us here even we do long distance family relationship, thats why the birthday party is a long distance too :)

Happy Birthday Mom!!

Heath Ledger is dead

It was a great morning wake up call for me while I watch TV and read some articles in my laptop that I saved last night, then my friend Earl texted me with a lot of disappointed saying that Heath Ledger is dead and Joker is Dead!.

I almost fell into my seat when I read that and then I immediately checked on the news in CNN if there is an update or a flash news about it, but didn't see any news about Heath. Then I quickly went down carrying my laptop and then opened my internet and there it goes. Everyone in Multiply is already talking about his death and a lot of links reporting it also.

Here''s what I think first when I heard the news. Did he finished the Dark Knight film?

But after reading some articles, the film is finished and it will be his last movie as one of the scariest villain of all comic icons - the Joker.

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
My first reaction of him as a Joker after I watched that Dark Knight prologue in IMAX, and yes, we just saw one of his powerful portrayal as a spooky character - the Joker. Now that he is gone, it will be a big loss for the entertainment scene without him.

also just saw of his films and didn't give any importance of him before the news about the Dark Knight film.

2001 - A knight's tale
I just enjoyed this funny movie and I was not too much focus on the actor, because the movie is very entertaining and weird haaaha.

2005 - Broke Back Mountain
didn't watched this, you know why? hmm... wala lang. I didn't know that this is about two male lovers, but i might watch it soon for a short tribute.

2005 - Lords of Dogtown
ahahahaha, this is one of the best! yeah I like skateboards the history of that sport.
and I just found out today that he is in that movie.

2005 - Brothers Grimm
I just argued with Lace about this movie, because I want to watch it.
its a very grim movie ahhahaa. if you grew up with children's book you know what I mean.

2008 - Dark Knight
my very much waited movie since last year and one of the best Batman movie. We have to wait for the July premiere.

Incubus concert in Manila 2008

At last! we got our Incubus concert tickets last Saturday and I am so excited that we three will watch it together (with Misyel and Lace). I didn't think twice in getting the tickets so early, because I predict that the tickets will be sold out in no time and the great seat in the house will be gone, so we got a great spot a little nearer to the stage, well its only a great near stage view.

I panic when my cousin got her own tickets last week, so I take charge and told my sister to call ticketnet to get a ticket and seat reservation. And glad that we got it and now time to bring back some incubus mania in my head - just listen to some of their albums and also watched their 2 DVD's last sunday hahahahah.

I just can't explain my story on what happened on their first concert here in Manila last 2004, but i can tell some that I got the ticket for free and I was with a good friend who is now rocking his incubus mania up in heavens. miss you bro!.

wow! so excited, but im sooooooo excited today because Lace bought a double cheese burger for me on her way home tonight. weeee!

going back to normality

been out and offline since i got some problems.
the weekend is busy and can't avoid the drama.

my right ear is injured and i know from my last ear check up, im having a near deaf situation which the doctor told me something I should avoid. im so scared that my ear will be gone and it will be hard to live a normal life walking around half deaf. so for now il be avoiding lots of loud noise and bye bye to my mp3 player. the loud noise didn't damaged my ear. its the frequent use of cotton ear bud, been using it everyday after i took a bath and its too late for me to stop. because the doctor saw the inside of my ear swollen and thats why im having lots of itching sensation. and according to the net that it might be a symptom of an ear problem.

il save more of my ear soon before the incubus concert.


if my ear has a problem, my eyes didn't let go.
got dizzy last saturday and my vision got blurry and experiencing a dizzy environment, thats why i stopped using the computer and less watching tv, and i started wearing my eye glasses again last saturday.


hope tomorrow will be a normal life and im so concerned that i already out of my deadline in my work, which i will be focusing more tomorrow.

il be avoiding the sunlight tomorrow for my eyes, noisy area and also eating less food ( having a short diet) but can't avoid the Dinuguan dinner while ago.

so that's all folks. my ear is still in pain and hope it will be healed.

Caparas Komiks will be in full color

from the blog pages of Randy Valiente, he just shared this scan advertisement stating that on Issue 7, the Caparas Komiks will be in full color.

I don’t mind getting a comic book for only P15. but i just hope that they improved the comics printing first rather than moving into in full color. Hmm. so what’s next? in glossy paper? Well I hope it will be in glossy paper. My money will test down the water first for supreme quality as what Caparas want his comics. I just wish that they release the comics in a regular basis, and I don’t want to be surprised that the comics will be available on the next 2 months or so. ok…. just surprise me! I thought at first that this will be a weekly comics. hmmm.. hope they get organized on this.

The Dark Knight Action Figures by Mattel

January 14, 2008

my tradition of posting a Dark Knight content starts now.
this photos is from this flickr of Shaun Wong. This is a fast preview of Batman's look on the 2nd Nolan's movie. No Batwing yet and no sidekick. My guess that this figure will be available one month before the showing.

Monday maniacs

January 14, 2008

its Monday and it means time to get back to work. I'm busy since yesterday making these new layout for the website Im working, but there are problems and new ideas coming up forcing me to redo the page. Well it happens everytime whenever I look onto the web visitors or clients point of view. But the big story in here is that my internet is acting weird and can't upload stuff in our FTP, DNS server error and network problems is occurring once again, and its a big problem for me to reach an important deadline.

while waiting for the normal connection, I'll go to the mall and pay some bills. Im glad that gmail and blogger works, while other sites are in error.

got some invites for an interview and its like the old days when people are taking anime topics as for their thesis subject. But today its thesis season and many had taken komiks or comics as their topics for their thesis, got an invite for an interview, me as an event organizer for a comic event, I think they were referring to the Komikon : Philippine Komiks Convention, I'm glad that these unknown people credit me for what i had contributed for the komiks scene.

And not just komiks, someone sent me an invitation too for their thesis, they are in the study of the anime scene in the Philippines, well Im no longer that active, but as an observer I can share something that it may be a great start for the j-culture. Also a big boy also consulting me on his big convention thesis. Yeah! I really like his concept and a big candidate to bear the torch for the next ToyCon organizer, hehhee he can get it if ever we get old and retire. And lastly, an interview for a movie icon, as a big fan of Philippine movies, I mean the classic movies, this is a new thing for me to talk about movies and the movie icon.

I guess this coming activities might fire up some creative juices of mine, and it seems that I lack lot of juices lately after the holiday season. It means time to research and learn more to come up with great ideas.... crazy ideas. ehehhehehe.

might watch a movie today. National Treasure 2. Some says that the 1st movie is bad, but for me its a great tour in some hot spots in the U.S. , never been there but movies, internet and magazine open up a great doorway for us to see what's in there. yeah! lets learn more about America in watching National Treasure eehehhehe.

anyway, Im planning to buy a pitcher plant seed in megamall. but if i bought it and plant it, im not sure if it will grow here. placing the seed inside the freezer for 8 weeks seems a little hard to wait for it to grow.
