The Host (Movie)

“Kiss me like you want to get slapped.”

– Wanda/Wanderer (in Melanie’s body)

Ah, I’ve been longing for a good post of a single review for a long time. I’m sure my blog even was longing for it too.

Recently, I have watched a lot of movies and I didn’t have a hard time in picking from which movie will I start. Somehow I wasn’t wanting to watch this and at the same time I want to. I guess it was out of curiosity that I was quite waiting for this movie to come out. Although, I am slightly taken aback for the fact that this was based on the novel written by the same author who wrote the overly luscious (to me, way before) and the famous vampire saga of all teenage time.

Just when my mum and I had time in our hands, my dad and bro in our capital city, and my mum longing for that bond we should always have, we decided to watch his movie which apparently, I have chosen it for us (instead of It Takes a Man and a Woman). Then with the large popcorn of cheese in between our seats and the  big screen in front of us, we were ready to zone out to the movie.

IF you don’t want to be spoiled and just want to know how good the movie is then please skip this part. **SPOILER ALERT**

Summary:

Earth has been inhabited by an intelligent alien species known as “Souls.” Although an incredibly peaceful race, Souls can only survive by being inserted into a host body, taking control of their minds. In an effort to discover the secret whereabouts of some of the last remaining human resistances, the Soul Wanderer has been inserted into the human being Melanie Stryder (Saoirse Ronan), who was captured while attempting to locate her family. After insertion, Wanderer comes to realize an unsettling fact- Melanie has not faded away in consciousness, and in fact is putting up walls in her mind to prevent her family from being found. As time passes and Wanderer tries to break Melanie’s walls, she begins to feel sympathetic toward the humans Melanie loves so dearly- her brother Jamie (Chandler Canterbury) and her partner, Jared Howe (Max Irons). Wanderer becomes torn between loyalty to her own race, trying to give information to the argumentative Seeker assigned to her, and her blossoming love for the humans in her memories. As Wanderer’s and Melanies trust builds, they embark on a journey through the desert to find the resistance, nearly dying in the process. Wanderer awakens to find herself captive in the den of the enemy, and realizes her problems have just begun: the humans want her dead, the doctor wants to experiment on her, she may have accidentally lead the Seekers here, and she has become hopelessly in love with Jared, the man who belongs to the human she occupies. What follows is an inspiring story of friendship, love, and loyalty in which the bonds of human brotherhood are tested, and an alien discovers that in all the planets in the universe she has experienced, humans are the only race she would give her life to save. . . .

**

First off, I want to make myself clear. It’s sad to say though that I haven’t read the novel that Stephenie surprisingly written. Know for a fact that I was planning to but as time passed by, management of money was difficult and so was saving money. Apparently, with that, I couldn’t tell if the Director, Andrew Niccol, has ever brought justice to the book. I know. I know. I can hear some of you lot saying that it’s really better to read the book before you watch its movie. Honestly, to all you bookworms, I have abided to that rule ever since (except for Harry Potter though. Haha). This just kinda broke the record.

Anyhow, I thought of the movie quite alluring. It had that side sci fi to it. But anyway, it is alluring in a way that I wouldn’t doze off like how “some” people I know would (which is quite unsual for me to happen in a movie house). Again, I don’t know if the movie too brought justice to the book in terms of their actors and their acting.

I must say that Saoirse Ronan (acted as Melanie Stryder) really looks good in acting her role..though, I’m not exactly sure when it comes to just being a voice in the head. I don’t know why..maybe it’s just me, but don’t get pulled out because of that. For most, she at least brought us to laughter by how her voice tells her reaction to situations like when Wanda/Wanderer would kiss Ian (Jake Abel), Melanie’s voice was that of anger and it was funny to watch and listen. There are more of those and it came out nicely. It gives a side comedy to the film.

For the rest of the cast, I found out that there are some faces who are new in the industry and yet would bloom because of this film as supposed so. Well, we’ll never know that a pedestrian in the film would be a huge star the next. Of course, there’s always newbies per film production. If I’m wrong..then what I mean to say is most of the time there are newbies. Haha. Or sometimes…or..urgh!

The transitions of the scenes are great and understandable unlike a few films where there’s a jump and gaps unfilled and only left to stare at them on how the heck it would be like connected and in its glorious form. In English, at least, the movie is unlike those that jump from one scene to another without seeing any motivation or such drive to the next scene you’re seeing (you would have that “huh?” face).

There are scenes that brought some drops rolling down my cheeks because it touches the subject of “letting go”, sacrifice which is caused by love. Wanda, a foreign life form in the human race, had that connection with the humans where in the end, she would even sacrifice herself. Ugh. Such an ache in the heart and I just can’t! *cries quietly* This is what happens when you’re attached or you relate to the characters (but that ain’t a bad thing).

Ok. *sniff* Let’s talk about the texture of the movie. What I mean by texture is well…I always see that each movie has some kind of different feel or look and that’s what they call or I may call as the texture of the movie. I just like to point that out because even if it sounds insignificant, it actually affects how we see the movie, how real would it look like for us or how much it affects our imagination. You know, it’s a boost up point  in those horror or gore movies that makes us flinch.

One example, for a thriller/gore genre, is Final Destination. In all of the FD movies (and most gore movies), their similar texture is that of sharpness. Clear. The sharpness and clarity emphasizes the goriness of the film. Our inward or outward flinching would always be active. It wouldn’t make us flinch though if we put the texture that Twilight uses,  a hazy, misty look. No, nope, not a flinch when we watch Bella bleed after being bitten by a vamp (although, the texture became different in the next sequels because they were made by a different production team). Not a good texture for a Final Destination film. Just pragmatically speaking.

Anyway, after such a short lecture, let’s go back! The texture of The Host was sharp yet soft, clean and–I don’t know what correct term to use–bright. Bright in a way it makes the technology look more scifiish. Haha. It’s kinda similar to Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief…I think. I’m just rather commenting on how I see it and maybe bright may not be the right term. If you get to see the film, comment me of what may be the supposed correct term of what I meant..and even suggestions of the texture.

The costumes were nothing much I should meddle about. They were able to bring out the difference between alien overshadowed humans and normal humans. Apparently, the different kinds of sets were great and there was no confusion of where they are and how it affects the transition. Although, there are some where I feel that it was held in a closed space. Like where they were outside and it feels or looks like it’s in a big room filled with trees and a bunch of grass. I can point out one scene where the Seeker and Wanda were alone outside talking to each other (this is before Wanda & Melanie ran away). It just looks like a room. Well, other than that, in addition, the texture of the film was able to emphasize the futuristic tech of the aliens in the set.

Last but not least, music has brought justice to the film. The background music wasn’t much of a bother. It has supported the film well enough. The only thing bothering me was for them to use Radioactive – Imagine Dragons as one of their music. Although, I’m starting to accept it as an okay.

For not reading the book and just heck watched the movie out of curiosity, I found it one of the best sci-fi romantic films I have ever seen, not that I haven’t watched any movie even related to that genre (and lo’ and behold, I can’t recall a film).

I would surely recommend you guys to watch this *winks* It’s worth it.

Much love,

So Much Things Going On

pizap.com13629996827551

Alrighty then. I know what you’re thinking right now. OH! Look at missy i-thought-she-aint-posting-anymore girl. She’s posting already some…posts! (chuckles) Well, give me some  time as I slowly peep in and out of the hole I’ve been living in the writing wonderland. From time to time, I was thinking of writing some more posts but it always ends up in drafts (and now most of them have been deleted). So, no way am I starting anew or anything like that. Well, I was planning but that’s just darn right tiring.

You see, thrid year college here in Xavier University of Cagayan de Oro city in the Philippines (I’m sorry that was too sophisticated, I’m keeping up my writing juices :p), it’s typically tough…especially when you’re 19 years old, a Business Administration, Finance Major, and a Company Manager (we prefer to call it like that but majority of the school population and others refer to it as “President”) of the university’s resident theater organization (yes pressurepressurepressure). Surely, if you’re in my shoes, you know how hectic my schedule is that I got no freakin time to update my blog D: how sad..

Ok! After such a tiring third year, it’s SUMMER! Dance everyone! Whoop! Yes, it’s summer here in the Phil! Everyone’s been waiting for this. Now I can have some writing done, reading novels done, video editing done…and yeah (all…hopefully) done. Despite the fact it’s summer, I’m still busy as the Company Manager of our theater organization, Dulaang Atenista [DA] (have I ever mentioned before this org—oh, yeah, I did). We did some strategic planning, and at the moment, had some meetings with the officers, Artistic Director and some (or few *shrugs*) committed members.  More meetings to come! Hectic I tell ya! But at least this is only focusin’ on theater *smiles* love! love!

We are planning some summer activities and also plans for our upcoming 25th season! OHMYGUSH! DA is turning 25! And I’m the CM and I’m— *dead* (faints rather lol) So many things going on this year! Not only for my theater organization..but my life here and now, this year! Ah! Good and bad! A lot of things!

Hold up! Before I could tell you what I’m gonna encounter this year…

Since my love for One Direction has grown, I began to delve into the fanfiction guild of the fandom. Let me tell ya, I have come up a lot of ideas..as in, a LOT of ideas! You should’ve seen my notebook (…of ideas). And the first idea, I surely want to focus on. It has come up to the point where I made a trailer of it. Although, it was supposed to be a sneak peek but it turn out longer than expected. I made it in one of those nights where I didn’t feel motivated to write (writer’s block). Unexpectedly, I finished it around 3 in the morning, I think. And come to think of it, I was winging with the clips, music and audio/voice-overs. You know, random! Right now, it’s already attracting a lot of Directioners and I shyly appreciate the comments about how nice it is (especially the comments where they said they cried watching it. ohmygush seriously?). The said fanfiction I was talking about is called “For The First Time“.

It’s a Niall Horan Fanfiction. I posted the trailer last year and now everyone’s been begging for me to post the story. Here’s the thing, I haven’t finished chapter one yet. Again, my college life is one hectic and rough ride. At least now, since it’s summer, I get to write. The creative feels and writer’s block is not helping me much though but it’ll be all good soon. After the For The First Time trailer, I made another trailer for a One Direction fanfiction of mine called Stolen Shot. 

I have more ideas but they’re never fully plotted or there’s no full gist you know. But anyway, because of the outcome of my trailers, other than comments in posting those fanfics, I was requested to do a trailer for a fellow directioner who’s following me in twitter. She’s sweet. The challenge though about her trailer was that I didn’t get to read her fanfiction in that time because it was Brazilian. I gave her my promise like I think, 2 months or a few weeks before I released her trailer. It was called “Querido Harry (Dear Harry)“.

Once she saw it, she was glad and it was what she envisioned. Although, I didn’t feel the enthusiasm because she was using all small caps. Eh, psychology in the text gets me. I didn’t get her full name though but you can see her or even follow her on twitter (click) and check out her story (click). It’s Brazilian though so make sure to use Google Translate…or whatever *smiles*

Ok! Now transitioning to what I’m going to encounter this year…!!

First..Ever since I posted the trailer, I had requests coming in. Right now, I have five requests. FIVE REQUESTS! Can’t you believe it?? (Although, I’m just prioritizing  four requests only) I’m starting to get worried that I might disappoint these people because I still have so many things to do. Although, I promised to push myself this summer into finishing these requests before summer’s over. Oh lawd asdfghjkl

These are 1D trailer request messages in my youtube inbox

These are just three 1D trailer requests messages in my youtube inbox

Next, one of the other things that I’m busy with, other than theater and making some trailers, I am focusing on writing my (already mentioned) fanfiction, For the First Time. I have been receiving a lot of “When is it posted?”, “Where can I read it?”, and “Where is it? I can’t find it” comments. It’s like majority of the comments. It didn’t bug me but I’m just annoyed that my creativity flows never have the right timing with my life schedule. When I finally have free time, I won’t have this motivated or inspired feeling to write (gush, this is so sad..).

I hope I won’t be like myself in the past where I do have lots of fanfiction ideas in a notebook or two for Danny Phantom (fan of it before, *whispers* even had a crush on the character *cough*) and never had much progress. Surely, my fanfiction account is long gone. I have to bring it to myself that I have to keep on writing and motivate myself. ‘Cause, what the heck, I want to be an author soon so I have to get a good move on.

For me to inspire myself, I thought of going to a place where I could breathe good vibes and linger in an atmosphere of the feels I want for my story or the feels that I needed to get my hands creating a satisfying story.  I then remembered Chingkeetea where I usually hang out with one of my closest best friends in the theater org.

In my first writing day there, it was quite noisy and I wasn’t satisfied with the partial outcome of my story (the prologue). I even tweeted about it, the ‘went to Chingkeetea’ part. And VOILA! Chingkeetea’s twitter account replied to me to come at 10 am to do writing because that’s when they open. Meaning it’s still peaceful and quiet, not much people around.

Surely, I found my sanctuary for writing, other than my room. My thinking bean bag doesn’t do much. It just makes me fall asleep. Or so it does when it’s night time. Hehe.

The thing about Chingkeetea is the good feel vibes (when there’s no people around) and the songs they play. I always hear And The Boys – Angus & Julia Stone play whenever I enter the milk tea shop. They play from Angus to Regina Spektor. It gives me that feel that I feel when I see those vintage kind of photos I see on Tumblr.

To even add to my inspiration tank before I enter my “sanctuary” (kudos!), I even once in the first few days, went to a book store, and a convenience store. Plus, when in my “sanctuary” (lol) I gave my character’s name, Anna, instead of my real name so when the employees writes it in the milk tea plastic cup and call the name, I would feel that I am the character. It sounds weird but it helps.

ok...make that EMILY..

ok…make that EMILY..

(I mistakenly called myself EMILY instead of Anna in this time so yeah…whoops..)

I had some company though in some days but I found out that it’s better when I’m alone because I get distracted. That annoys my inspiration tank.

I can tell you more of my writing journey in Chingkeetea in another post. So moving forward!

Well, as you can see the LATE POST REVIEW, that goes to show I’m still doing reviews in the books I read, the movies I watch, the music (especially the new)I listen and the news I hear. I’ll try my best to do that after every time I do those things. I’ll also be rearranging some things in the blog especially the categories I made. Anyway, soon, I’ll be posting my reviews on The Host, It Takes A Man And A Woman, and Olympus Has Fallen. 

Yes! Wow..

I can see though that I’m taking quite a long time when I write my posts but fear not, I am planning to make a vlog, mostly on the parts where I have to make reviews. Oh good gracious me, I can’t believe I agreed to that thought. You’re going to see my face! Ack!

ihaveitOMG

And speaking of blog & vlog stuff…if you’re not a Directioner or not into One Direction then skip this *stares*…

tumblr_mer1bkoZZW1rott33

This year, I am also planning to make another blog (not here in wordpress) for my One Direction—ness. HAHA. I have grown in love with these boys that I figured that I won’t lose my interest in them at all. The boy band feels is a new thing to me. It is nothing compared to being a fan of a rock band called Linkin Park. Nope. The British boy band is not like my everyday life when I was in love with the hardcore rock band (Although, I still love that rock band. Gush, can’t believe I’m into such variety of music).

What I envisioned for the design of the blog would be like made out of drawings and YES, I would have a drawing self. And I’m surely bound to have some kind of signature look…especially in my vlogging times. A hair clip maybe? HAHA I don’t know.

doesn't look exactly likes this though..

doesn’t look exactly likes this though..

In my One Direction blog, I would be updating of what the boys are doing, but mostly giving out my reviews and reactions them in my vlog videos. Not only will I post about what the boys are doing but the situation in the Directioner fandom like in twitter, tumblr, facebook and even in youtube. I’ll be suggesting some creative and great music videos, fanfictions, artwork and etc. made by fellow direcitoners that I found.

tumblr_lv51h49XIS1r467jso1_500

And of course, I’ll also be posting and updating my fanfictions, videos, and whatsoever. I hope I’ll do well in this *smiles* My blog plan would be to post every once a week. I hope that schedule would work out..and I hope my schedule in my 4th year in college won’t destroy my plans. I hope for the best. ESPECIALLY, when the 1D movie is going to be out! OHMYGUSH! Woah, Meg, calm down. Don’t want your fangirling to annoy the readers….sorry..

controlthyself

OK, NON-DIRECTIONERS! YOU CAN COME OUT NOW! Just some words to say..

Well, that’s all the updates and the stuff that’s going down this year. YES! SO MUCH THINGS GOING ON! Whoop! I hope I can finish the things I promise myself to before summer’s over. If I don’t, I’m going to be so frustrated about myself.

Take care guys! God bless!

Comment if there’s things you don’t understand or if you have any questions (And no, I didn’t even say “only”).

Much love,

Meg xx

Mind Bender Films: The Cinemagis Magic [January 23, 2012]

umm…ignore the coming soon 😛

I may not be the first one to post something about this year’s Cinemagis held January 20, 2012 at SM Atrium. Mainly, the source is from the guys of Mindbenders. Well…hey, I’m one of them too 😉 Anyway, not being the only one typing this kind of post and being late for it, I’m still going to type away.

In all honesty, this is the first time I’m joining the Cinemagis awards night. I have watched films from Cinemagis but never joined an awards night. I also have never been part of Cinemagis until now when I was one of the Assistant Directors of our film, “BF“. Let me have this chance to say that I’m honored to be a part of it. Well, all my life I have always wanted to be a part of a film production.

After such unsuspecting initiation brought by no other than the director himself, I was officially “mindbended” as they say. Haha Because of such term, it’s hard not to laugh. Although, I find it amusing and yet heartwarming…even during such tragedy that has happened in our city.

Anyway, back to present and few days ago— It was such a sad part on me during that day (even though I was happy nonetheless). Kinda because I was late. Well, it’s a forgiving reason for them but not for me. Wish I could have skipped class…but, midterms is midterms. Not the midterm exams by the way…it’s a study review thing…well, finishing the chapters for midterm that is.

Funny though…the Cinemagis Awards night starts at 6:30pm. My class ends at 6:55/7:00pm. Luckily, we ended early but then my BA teacher was fooling around by stalling our dismissal. As I was standing up with my bag ready to sway along with me to catch a jeepney going to sm, Sir was still sitting down and asked for questions before he drank from his coffee filled tumbler. My face dropped and I suspect that he was waiting for the dismissal time to tick. Oh God…I have an Awards night to catch. Being the stupid girl that I am, I didn’t shout like the individual girl that I am in the inside. I just waited and yet yell small “I have an Awards Night to attend to..” sentences here and  there. I was kinda agitated.

Fortunately, I have announced all about it (well, not all) to my blockmates…especially through that early morning gm (group message) I sent. One of them, Sheila Macabale, saw me all anxious. She soon got the attention of Sir. I was nervous and uncomfortable about the situation because most of the class had their eyes on me as Sheila explained my situation. And yet, I felt all proud when Sir asked about what film I’m in. Of course, I told our film and mind you, I claimed that I was the Assistant Director and no other position.

And with that, Sir let me go without saying another word. People were whispering such that I didn’t care to understand but I leave them a sticky-thee-tongue-out goodbye. As I left, I suddenly hear a groan from the room. Inside me, I was laughing victoriously…and at the same time, anxious.

I didn’t want to miss this.

At that time, I was asking why did it have to be on the time when I have a class going on. Sigh, oh well… When I reached there (after traffic and anxious waiting), the first person I met was Kuya Ryan, our Film Director. He just smiled and showed me an envelope saying…I guess, it said Best Cinematograhy. I then realized it started na….even though no one updated me about it and my mother txted “it hasn’t started yet”. I missed the awarding of 4 awards…which belonged to US!!

It just started and we already won 4 awards?! It was an indescribable feeling. It would have boosted up if I were there from the beginning (gah, evening classes).

I first went to my parents who were at Juice & Co., behind the audience. They congratulated me and Mind bender films. I dropped my things there especially my supposed-to-wear-just-in-case formal attire. Before I arrived, I already decided not to wear it since I’m not gonna go up the center stage. Met up with the rest of the crew and got to see Dennis’ Best Story trophy.

I was so proud of him. When he held it up with joy, I know how much he deserves it.

Really. As a writer and as a friend, I was inspired of Dennis. He wrote a short yet unique story, only to be backed up by a true conversation he had kinda same with the film. He inspired me because…he has reached this far. He has won what he deserves. I was glad that God answered my prayers 🙂

I already told Dennis through twitter that “We can do this”  and “cross our fingers :)”. Well, here he is.

I’m inspired to be like him. If he can reach that far then I can. I’ve stopped writing not so long ago because I wasn’t motivated or I kept on having this so called writer’s block or even been too busy with college life. No matter now…I’m gonna write. And write. And someday, I’m gonna have a Best Story trophy too 😉 I wanna thank Dennis for being one of my inspirations now and a great friend 🙂

Moving forward— As I held up my DSLR up and capture every moment in the awards night, the flow was great. Videos, previews here and there. Certificates, recognition, acknowledgement gone by there and here. I almost thought that it was ending already. I was supposed to ask Fia, who was beside me, if it was over…until the hosts  announced about the next set of awards…Aw…

It was an unbelievable night. We won 7 awards out of 9 awards (but we were nominated 8 awards). It was mind blowing of how it came to this. Everyone was so happy. I was…lightheaded in those moments when our film is called out and claimed to be the winner of such award. I couldn’t say I was empty. I was just…overwhelmed.

7 out of 9 awards…wow…

Best Cinematography
Best in Art Direction
Best in Editing 
Best Story
Best Actor
Best Director
Best Short Film

Not minding how uncomfortable it is to wear uniform among the crowd wearing casual attire, I stood up on stage along with my fellow mind benders 🙂 We rocked out Cinemagis!! Woot! We were all thankful for each other. I thank, we thank especially to our beloved actors, Sheila and Kuya Franz. We are thankful for them for giving us their time in doing this. They are awesome! Big thumbs up for the two of them.

I also wanna thank, again, Dennis for a wonderful piece he has presented to us and for the inspiration *salutes*. And of course, our director, Kuya Ryan, for bringing this piece to life, into the big screen and to the viewers…and also for bringing us to Mind Benders ;D char! Haha

We all wanna thank the rest of the Mind benders and our supporters like Fia, Arfil, Jonathan, Yves, Ate Gene and the list goes on…

That night was one of the most wonderful nights I ever had! Ugh…so many thoughts and feelings all yet to describe that night but I couldn’t really put it into words. Sigh, so hard.

Well…there’s only one expression that I can put out to maybe sum up the feeling that night…

HECK YEAH! WE DID IT! ;D

CONGRATS MIND BENDER FILMS!! We’re awesome!

Sherlock Holmes 2: A Game of Shadows

What do you see?

“Everything…

…and that is my curse.”

–***SPOILER ALERT***–

I was really hoping to watch this movie ever since it came out. Honestly, I didn’t expect they would make another one but what the heck was I thinking, of course, they should! They shouldn’t let an epic idea die in the movie world!

Dad asked me about the story of the 1st one but..ugh, I can’t remember. All I remember this is quite better than the first one. I’m just following the hunch I have, a feeling. There’s more intellectual zoning her ya know! Haha that’s just the awesome part about Sherlock.

As I’ve heard from one of my parents’ friends whom we just met at Mcdo just before we watch the movie itself, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows has better reviews compared to the first one. Well, that’s an epic bravo if you ask me.

It really was awesome! Mind blowing when  it comes to the twists and turns brought about by Sherlock at any intense situation. My mind can only catch up at few times especially the bombing of a hotel meeting, one of the plans of the villain of the movie.

Good so far knowing that Robert Downey Jr. just came from rehab. My dad was all smiles and a joking face when he said that. He just came from rehab and he’s already pulled in doing a movie. I just love Robert! 😀

I love how he acts in Sherlock Holmes! In Iron man? Mmm…I really hate that cocky, overconfident side of him…it kinda gets in my nerves. Haha

Don’t know but Robert really plays wonderfully as Sherlock for me. I couldn’t find a better Sherlock than him ;p Mmm..there are a few but can’t say any names :\

Jude Law was magnificent as usual Haha! Jude playing as Dr. Watson is very well placed. There are so many kinds of Dr. Watsons that I actually pictured. Mostly, a fat man but in this movie, he would only slow Sherlock down and, well, there would be much of a different taste of comedy in here. Surely. Although, this kind of Dr. Watson is much better than any other so no argument about that.

And yes, the Dr. Watson-annoyed-by-Sherlock’s-random-experiments-on-his-pet kind is perfect. Now, in the movie, yes, he’s getting married and then married…blahblah…endangered and yes, but they’re okie dokie. Happy comings and all 😀 Haha

The action and adventure was great. When it comes to Holmes, there would always be that pausing moments and through his intellectual zoning, analyzing predictable moves and create strategies and tactics.

The slow down effects was mind blowing….especially when they were escaping and running though the forest of trees towards the train.

Ah, no worries, there’s always the funny parts. And speaking of which, my favorite funny quote from Sherlock (not surely but what I heard):

“If we stop, although, we may kill him (your brother), we will be able to save the rest of civilization….No pressure.”

Funny in a sense they are going to stop or may kill Madam Simza’s brother from killing an ambassador. The punchline “No pressure” with a plain tone in it just makes it ticklishly funny. Just imagine the faces of Dr. Watsong and Simza for hearing that line.

Another line, when Simza asked “What do you see?” and Sherlock answered “Everything….and that is my curse.” while they were dancing. It really says something about Sherlock and his abilities. His mind, his intellect can’t stand analyzing things and details in a flick. He’s simply amazing. The gift he carries is great but at the same time it gives him trouble by solving such crimes. The Mentalist is nothing compared to our Sherlock :p although, I may not be right in making the right comparisons ehehe

Overall, the movie was awesome to watch. It is a must watch 😉

Right now, after such movie, Sherlock is kinda stuck in my head. I kinda wanna act like him, talk like him, and even think like him. Heck, he’s kinda literally stuck in my head…like I can hear his voice telling me what do and act. Haha Weird but feels all tingly of some sort.

Ok,  yeah, it’s Robert Downey Jr.’s voice…Hahaha
