My husband and I had been waiting for this movie to come out.  Froggy owns a copy of the graphic novel and he was all praise with Alan Moore’s ingenious plot.  So since it was pegged to be put on the big screen.  I borrowed the novel.  It was a slow start for me because I was actually at a loss.  I do read graphic novels but sometimes the flow is a bit confusing.  As I read on it all became clearer and when I reached the last page.  It was definetly a good read.  If I am going to pin point each plot line I would be at a loss on how to explain it but if I take it as a whole I would have a better chance of telling you what went on.  Rorschach’s character had left a strong impression on me.  I have his whole persona etched in my mind.   And when the movie came out.  I was having a high expectation for this character and the movie itself.  It was well justified in the movie and much more than I had expected.  The movie is almost 95% accurate to the graphic novel.  A not so easy feat.  But it was well executed.  It was like literally watching the comic book come to life.  For those who had not read the novel.  Some may find themselves bored or even lost in the middle of the movie.  This superhero movie didn’t come from your typical goody-two-shoes mold.  Think of a darker, violent and more human super heroes.   One thing is for sure, I will be waiting for the DVD release of this movie so I can add this one up to our growing collection. 2680938775_e9a85908af.jpg

Currently I’m obsessing the Pupee website.  It’s a lot of fun looking through other peoples closet.  Maybe I’m just being nosy.  Hehehehe.   Some folks there are quite talented in making their own accessories.  There’s a few in particular that I love most because they make their own stuff.  One of them can make realistic looking mini cakes and made them into bag clips and brooches.  This is her Pupee closet website http://pupe.ameba.jp/closet/5GZvc94E2Hy4/ (you have to backtrack to get a look at what I’m talking about.)   They are so fun and cute to look at that I wanted to make some myself.  Now where do I get the clay stuff she used?!   Maybe my next trip to a hobby store I could get some of it.   Also, her necklaces are really vintage looking and it seems fun to wear.  Wish I’m that creative.  But I did get a lot of good ideas, they are now swimming through my head at the moment.  Inspired by what I had seen by the people who shared them.  Weird isn’t it where inspiration can hit you like that.

This is just a sample of her talent.  ^^

Last night, my husband and I had a date at a local mall.  I’ve been bugging to watch “Inkheart” with him.  Since it’s a weekday the mall was relatively not crowded.  Which is good.  We had our early dinner first at a Greek restaurant.  We’re both on a diet at the moment.  Trying to lose the extra poundage we gained since our honeymoon trip and it was unsuccessful because the Yuletide just added more pounds than necessary O_o.  Right now we’re trying to watch what we eat.  So we ordered a nice healthy salad.  I got the pork loin kebabs while he got a chicken wrap.  It’s as healthy as it can get.  After that, we walk around a bit then watched the movie.  Personally I like the movie, my husband seems to think that it was okay.  I’m already planning to get the trilogy to get to the bottom of some unanswered stuff that is running round my head.  I’m just waiting for the 3rd installment to become a paperback edition before I dive myself into it.

Wonder if they plan to film the 2nd and 3rd installment.

Once the movie was over, we went to the nearest Krispy Kreme.  My husband has been craving doughnuts.  And since his on a diet, he opted for the none glazed.  That time the shop is offering it’s Valentine’s Day tin can.  I asked if they have other designs.  So they showed me the Krispy Kreme original box design.  And I fell in love how cute it looks.  Needless to say I got the 2 tin boxes hehehehe. My husband is asking me what will I do with them.  Men!  They don’t know that boxes are usefull to us women.  We got so many stuff that we can put and organize it with cute boxes! hehehehe.  (Trying to justify my buying it!  But technically he got it for me.) hehehehe.

I just found out that “Voyage of the Dawn Treader” is finally setting sail.  Since there was a problem with the previous handlers it was planned to be scrapped.  But the real hero is Fox for picking it up.  Yipee for Fox!!!!  Here’s the url for the in dept on the story  http://www.narniaweb.com/news.asp?id=2110&dl=22545350  and at http://www.narniafans.com/archives/3269

Since the Narnia series is being put into the big screen.  The third installment of the well loved childrens book is not going to happen.  Which is really a downer because I love to see Ben Barnes again *ehem* I mean Prince Caspian in another adventure.   <3   I got this link from one of my many groups and it really made me LOL with the way the letter sender got to the point in a humurous way.   So I’m sharing it to all the other Narnia fans out there that haven’t read this yet.  Here’s the link  http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/la-et-narnia1-2009jan01,0,3925428.story

Probably most of you had already watched the movie.  For those of you who hadn’t watched it yet then be warned.

Last Sunday, we watched the most anticipated movie since Harry Potter.  Well, to tell you frankly the movie is just so so, actually a big let down.  I know that book to movie usually looses its essence.  The first half of the movie is really one big bore.  The scenes are too cheesy that it’s almost becoming chedar.  The sparkling Edward just made me laugh instead of making me awestruck.  I kept peeking at my husband who just laugh at the not so romantic scenes.  Okay his laugh is a bit sarcastic plus he did mention that he should have watched Bolt instead.  The interesting part started with the baseball game that the Cullens usually play when there’s a thunder storm. Then the chase scene and the fight between the vamps get more interesting than the love story between the two main characters.  Plus the guys who plays James, Carlisle and Emmet are cuter than Edward (sorry Rob fans)  Alice, Victoria and Esme fits the bill.  Rosalie was a bit off.  This is all in terms of the way the book describes them.  I really dont want to nit pick this movie because I’ll just get in trouble with all the fans girls who love it.    I know that it was a low budget movie, but with all the hype I wanted it to be a bit more.  Lets just hope that the second movie is better than the first.

Last week,  I entered a contest in newworlds.ph  It’s an org for all fantasy and sci-fi lovers out there with different clubs under its belt.  Like Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Narnia, Harry Potter and a lot more.  I’m personally in a few of those clubs though some in lurker mode (me bad!).  So I am what you call a self confessed geek!  So when the contest for Hellboy 2: The Golden Army is in play.  I thought to myself, why not try my luck.  My husband even sent his own entry (another self-confessed geek).  Yesterday was the drawing.  And as the title of the blog says….I won!!!  I was one of the 5 first prize winners of a pair of advance screening tickets, a Hellboy book and a Hellboy trucker cap. The screening was tonight, so my husband and I watched it.  I loved the movie a lot.  Though, I still don’t get it why it wasn’t that popular in the US.  The effects were great since it came from the makers of “Pan’s Labyrinth” the costumes and set are top notch.  Even the story is well thought of.  Maybe the geek in me is trying to PR the movie.   Nevertheless, it’s worth the watch!
