Latest American Idol, Survivor, Amazing Race, CSI? Put them all here.

Latest sequels, prequels, indie hits? Ditto.

Let me start by asking: I wonder when THE UNIT and E-RING will return to the Crime and Suspense Channel on cable?

I beleived those shows were by far the most accurate representation of special forces work and the men and women behind them ever made in TV history, heck maybe even including the movies.

24's Dennis Haysbert is one of the leads in THE UNIT, a series about an elite Delta Force squad.

One-time Mr Julia Roberts Benjamin Bratt is the lead in E-RING, yet another covert special ops show, with this unit being operated by the Pentagon itself.

Cool thread, Sam! :)



Let me start by asking: I wonder when THE UNIT and E-RING will return to the Crime and Suspense Channel on cable?
I'm afraid I don't know the answer, but I do want to say that I like the Crime/Suspense Channel a lot 8) My favorite shows there are the true crime documentaries, as well as Psych and Bones. I always tell people that I don't like medical shows like ER and Grey's Anatomy because I only like to watch when there's already a dead body and people have to find out "whodunit." ;D

Mrs Sam Miguel loves BONES as well Carrot. She just loves the lead character for her quirkiness AND humanity, a very sympathetic character indeed.

I personally like the sexually tense lovey-dovies going on between Angela (the tall half-Asian woman) and Hodgins (the curly-haired, bearded fellow).

the show i've been crazy of late is heroes. come to think of it, i also dig supernatural, ghost whisperer, and of course, the original twilight zone and the x-files. anything that stretches your speculative imagination is fine with me. just imagine a world without ruffa, annabelle, and yilmaz ;D

Bones is an endearing character indeed, Sam :) I do like the interesting mix of humanity and ivory tower remoteness in her. And yes, the dynamics between Angela and Hodgins are interesting indeed!

Supernatural shows are cool, too, although the first and only real supernatural show I've ever really gotten into was The Real Ghostbusters ;D I hope I can begin Heroes when it premieres on Crime/Suspense - when I miss a series premiere, I don't feel motivated to watch the rest anymore! :p

"Heroes" is very brooding, like a very long graphic novel come to the little screen. I like that it feels like an M Night Shyamalan production, great character studies and subtle story development.

Among the three CSI iterations I prefer CSI Miami because of the tough guy character of Horatio Caine played by NYPD Blue's David Caruso. Horatio gives the show a more human and elemental feel, a welcome break from all of the science and legalese.

One other series I love on the CS Channel is "Law and Order", the original one with Sam Shepard and Angie Harmon. The legwork and legal work that go into fighting crime are perfectly explored.

ako naman, among 3 CSI's my favorite is still the original, then CSI:NY. unlike joescoundrel, hindi benta sa akin ung character ni horatio caine, parang exag for me.

i also love House. i'm just starting to watch Grey's anatomy and i like it so far.

Never been fond of these series, pero na-tiempuhan ko yung simula ng Commander in Chief w/c stars Donald Sutherland and Geena Davis. Sa isang may edad tulad ko, kilala ko itong dalawa as very good and credible actors. Mukhang susubaybayan ko ito.

Just thought TV fans might be interested in this site: http://www.televisionwithoutpity.com/index.html

It's basically a site with people posting snark about popular TV shows, but the way they express themselves is very entertaining (at least by my standards :P). Beware, though, mateys - there be spoilers!

PS I love Gilmore Girls! Even though it's sad that the series has ended, I can't wait to find out how the finale went. My GG fan friends abroad say it was very nice :)

My Top 20 All Time Date Movies (in no particular order)

1. GOOD WILL HUNTING by Gus Van Sant and starring then relative lightweights Matt Damon and veteran crazy person Robin Williams

2. JERRY MAGUIRE by Cameron Crowe starring a reborn, slightly re-invented Tom Cruise and Cuba Gooding Jr.

5. TITANIC by James Cameron starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, featuring the best moment in cinematic history: Leo drowning in arctic waters

6. HEAT by Michael Mann starring Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, the first and only time both legends ever exchanged lines on cam together.

7. GHOSTBUSTERS and GHOSTBUSTERS 2 by Ivan Reitman (?) starring Bill Murray, Dan Akoryd, et al, gave new meaning to the term modern-day superheroes

8. THE NATURAL (forgot who directed) starring Robert Redford in a mythical role that defined his later career

9. PRETTY WOMAN by Robert Reiner (?) starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere, the ultimate retelling of the fairy tale romance

10. ST ELMO'S FIRE and THE BREAKFAST CLUB (forgot who directed) starring the original "Brat Pack" in (various iterations) of Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, Molly Ringwald, et al, as the flicks that defined the zany decade known as the 1980's

11. I AM SAM (forgot who directed) starring Sean Penn and Michelle Pfifer and a wonderful performance by tyke tyro Dakota Fanning

12. POCAHONTAS, ALADIN, LION KING all by Disney Animation, all of which brought the classic full length feature cartoon back to the modern silver screen

Who for you guys is the best director of Hollywood action films, including war movies?

My sentimental favorite would be Michael Bay for giving us the now-famous slo-mo walk away from big-assed explosions. Think THE ROCK and ARMAGEDDON.

And of course the great John Woo, who brought Hong Kong-style Kung-Fu action sequences into the Hollywood mainstream. FACE/OFF really hit this particular spot.

Michael Mann put together the longest no-dialogue shootout in movie history in HEAT so I'd put him down here as well.

Ridley Scott's GLADIATOR and BLACK HAWK DOWN were pretty good action flicks as well.

yes, i believe andrew mccarthey was the one who co-starred with molly ringwald and jon cryer in "pretty in pink." meanwhile, eric stoltz starred in "some kind of wonderful" with mary stuart masterson. as an actor, eric stoltz gives new meaning to the term "constipated" ;D

I watched the premiere episode of Who Wants to be a Superhero? on Jack TV last night. I think I now have new junk food for the brain for after American Idol ends this week.

Also, I think Stan Lee is Larry King's superhero alter ego. If Clark Kent just had to remove his glasses and change into his super suit to become Superman, Larry just has to stick on a mustache and ta-daaa! ;D

Did anyone ever see it? Just curious ;D

05-25-2007, 05:54 PM
Yes actually there was a new series of He-Man (with the corresponding new toy line.)
Still the guys and gals on steriods. Adam looks more geeky now than the initial geeky Adam with muscles.
Same old characters except the second round of villians (after skeletor) are snake men (katropa linya ni Cobra Khan.)
A decade and more after, it still had the same themes so i lost insterest watching it.. :) I just took interest at the toys for nostalgia.

BTW: he's still wearing loinskin.

When I was in Grade School, I was one of those addicted to the japanese robot cartoon series of Voltes V, Mazinger Z, Daimos, Grendaizer, etc. I still have some of those toys back in our old house. When I was in Greenhills a couple of months ago, I saw a 1 foot Voltes V robot orginal selling for P 25,000.00.

Whew! What an appreciation of value!

TV shows I miss:

•* Welcome Back, Kotter — Vinnie Barbarino (John Travolta) and the Sweathogs. "Up your nose with a rubber hose."
•* WRKP in Cincinnati – the producers are having a hard time releasing it on DVD because of the song rights. Mas gusto ko si Bailey kaysa sa character played by Loni Anderson. Famous line from the show: "As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!"
•* Three's Company – Lasted longer that expected after Suzanne Sommers quit the show.
•* The Muppet Show – Looking back, some of the sketches had rather grown-up themes.
•* Soap — wacky and outrageous take on daytime soap operas.
•* Saphire and Steel – creepy Brit horror/mystery show.
•* The Thunderbirds – puppet animation sci-fi program. Heard it was made into a movie a couple of years ago.
•* Wiseguy — The first two story arcs were great: the "Sonny Steelgrave" mob storyline; then the "It's all in the toes" second season featuring an incestuous Kevin Spacey.
•* There was this British 70s show featuring teens always hanging out in an alley. Can't remember the title.

And of course, the best Brit import to the world since the Beatles and Saatchi & Saatchi — The Benny Hill Show!

I know Star World has shown WKRP. I love the Muppet Show. I currently have the Thunderbirds theme song that the group Busted performed. I also realized the Vanessa Hudgens was in that movie. I really find the Benny Hill show funny. Maybe better than Mr. Bean. It was shown here before. Can't recall what channel.

There was also a British invasion on TV as there were a lot of TV shows produced in England that were broadcast here:

There were other "Supermarionation" series too, such as Supercar, Fireball XL5 (I still remember a slingshot-launched toy model with re-entry parachute), Stingray, Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons,* and finally The Secret Service (with a secret agent priest who had an assistant named Matthew who was shrunk to two feet in size by a machine called a minimiser), but Thunderbirds was my favorite.
Yes, it was made into a movie some years ago, starring Bill Paxton as the head of the Tracy Family.

Then there were other British (ITC) produced live-action sci-fi series such as U.F.O. featuring Ed Straker and S.H.A.D.O.(Supreme Headquarters Alien Defense Organisation), and later on in the mid-70s,* SPACE:1999, (where the moon is blasted out of earth orbit by an exploding stockpile of nuclear waste).

There were also other crime series such as The Champions, Department S, The Saint(later made into a movie starring Val Kilmer), The Professionals (British CI5 counterpart of Starsky and Hutch) and probably the most popular of them all, The Avengers.

And yes, nobody could beat "Benny Bastos" on TV. Makes Mr. Bean bland. :D

Yes! Yes! Yes! The Avengers! Emma Peel (Diana Rigg) was so hot in her tight-fitting outfits! I remember that series. I also remember you were never too young to have prurient interests.

Which brings me to Geroge Estregan . . . when he died, the boys of Narra Hall (a dorm in UP) organized a special film retrospective tribute to dear ol' George. You don't have to be a movie buff to guess which of his films they showed.

MY DATE MOVIES:

• Sleepless in Seattle — The mother of all date movies. Along with "You've Got Mail," established Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan as the best love team since Tracy and Hepburn. And a close second to the Guy and Pip tandem.*

• When Harry Met Sally — The prototype for date movies. Came out a few years earlier than "Sleepless." No porn flick i've seen (and i've seen a lot) comes even close to Meg Ryan's orgasm scene, which also gave us one of the best movie lines in history: "I'll have what she's having."

• Casablanca — The film with the most memorable lines in cinema history. Bogart at his best.

• Singing In The Rain — If your date loves classic musicals, she'll love the best musical of all time. I grew up on MGM musicals.

• Cinema Paradiso — The real love story here is the love for great movies. Watched it dahil walang ibang mapanood (during the time all stations went off the air every Holy Week. Do they still do that?). Bored at first, specially with the subtitles, but when it ended, instant classic for me.*

• The Princess Bride — "My name is Iñigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." Very charming fairytale. My personal favorite for my movie date (in front of the television) with my daughter, my son and my wife.

• Reality Bites — "I have a universe of regret on my shoulders." Yeah, regretting I can never be as cool as Ethan Hawke. Suddenly, being a slacker became righteous. Soundtrack included "Add It Up" by the Violent Femmes.

• Kung Mangarap Ka't Magising — Fell instantly in love with Hilda Koronel during the hilltop scene where Christopher De Leon was singing "Umaga Nanaman," (composed by Jun Latonio) one of my fave Pinoy songs.

• Lollipops and Roses — Early 70s Pinoy movie shot in the States. Starred Nora Aunor and Cocoy Laurel plus, believe it or not, Don Johnson. Had a scene that should serve as a culinary template for Pinoy OCWs – never cook bagoong in the presence of foreigners! Specially white folks. Another 70s-era movie i liked starred Ariel Ureta and Margie Moran. "Miss Universe Ng Buhuay Ko" (how obvious) yata ang title?*

• Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle — Sa sobrang kakatawa ng date mo, hindi nya mapapansin your hands are beginning to roam.

• Debbie Does Dallas, Taboo, Deep Throat, etc. — Based on the notion that not all girls value virginity. (Thank you Dr. Margie Holmes!)

After the end of her adult film career (she was found to have been underage for most of it :o), Traci went to acting school and was able to cross over into mainstream film, TV and even music. I first saw her in the John Waters film Crybaby, which starred a post-21 Jumpstreet, pre-Pirates Johnny Depp. She played, of course, a bad girl 8)

Even though we were already in college when TGIS came out - and before that we had gone to all-girls' schools so the coed school and barkada setup was totally unreal to us - my friends and I used to watch it to get a laugh out of the hackneyed plots and bad acting. :P I didn't enjoy the sequels and spinoffs and alternative versions of this show, though.

Kid Cubao

sam miguel, the theme from "st elsewhere" was composed by dave grusin, while the theme from "hill street blues" was by mike post.

the most riveting TV theme for me was, and still is, henry mancini's "peter gunn." duane eddy's hypnotic four-note buzz-saw guitar riff is the touchstone for all music scoring hipness as practiced these days by directors quentin tarantino, robert rodriguez, and paul thomas anderson.

Wang-Bu
06-11-2007, 04:27 PM
Paborito ko naman mga galing sa mga palabas na sariling atin, gaya ng theme music nung "John En Marsha" na hango yata sa isang kanta ng Jackson 5, pati ang theme nung "Palibhasa Lalake" na hango naman sa tugtog ng Hagibis.

What do you think will be the best movie of this year?

Even if it hasn't been shown yet, I think the best movie this year will be "Across the Universe."

Yes, it's the title of a Beatles song. That's because it's a musical featuring Beatles songs.

For those of you who are Batman fans, this is the new Joker, played by Heath Ledger:

I still think he's compensating for Brokeback Mountain. After playing a homosexual cowboy, apparently Cassanova wasn't enough. Now he has to play the Joker. ;D


And here's Robocop, este Batman:

I actually like it. There are more photos on www.batman-on-film.com.


So he still has the green hair. And knowing the director, this thing's going to be nice and dark, the way I think Batman films should go.

Since they're remaking the franchise, I wonder why they didn't cast Jim Carey as Joker. Or maybe they can now cast Edward Norton as Riddler, Glenn Close or Judi Dench as Granny Goodness, Jeremy Irons as Man-Bat, Natalie Portman as Andrea Beaumont (if they do a live version of Mask of the Phantasm). But they must keep Danny DeVito as Penguin.

Jim Carrey as the Joker would be a derogation of the "dark" direction in which the current films are going, IMO.

It is true that Jim's working for recognition as a "serious" actor now, but I believe that if he ever got cast as the Joker in an edgy Batman film, people are still going to expect Ace Ventura and they might be disappointed if Jim doesn't do a campy Joker like Cesar Romero in the old TV series (with the POW! BLAM! ZING! ;D). I also honestly don't know whether Jim can do a menacing Joker, a la Jack Nicholson, very well. He might come across as Ace Ventura trying to be a villain.

Besides, he's already played The Riddler in one of the Batman movies during the Val Kilmer-George Clooney era. I don't think that would stop The Powers That Be from re-casting him in another part in another Batman movie, but meh, I just can't see him as the Joker in this kind of Batman film.

Speaking of re-makes, I can't wait to see the new Hairspray movie. I loved the John Waters original that starred Ricki Lake. (And speaking of John Waters, I also loved Cry Baby.)

The new Hairspray movie does look interesting. I saw the original during a drinking session (which is why I hardly paid attention).

Tama. No more Jim Carey. Edward Norton as Riddler na lang.

(Can someone think of a role for John Malkovich?)

I also wonder who can play a credible "Robin" in the Batman movies that are coming.

***

I heard that Elisha Cuthbert's doing a remake of "My Sassy Girl." And since I loved her in "The Girl Next Door" and thought she made for great eye candy in "House of Wax," I wonder if this new film will be nice.

But I still maintain that the ultimate kilig-to-the-bones flick this year (and therefore the best flick this year) will be Across The Universe (www.acrosstheuniverse.com), if the movie lives up to the excitement generated by the trailer.

Transformers is the best summer popcorn movie of the year. I was getting a bit impatient, with all the focus on the humans and their back-story in the first act, but once Optimus Prime and the other Autobots finally showed up, it was non-stop fun from there.

I finally saw Transformers yesterday and enjoyed it a lot. Like CM_Punk, I got impatient with the human backstory in the beginning (e.g., did they have to have a love interest in there? I don't think she was necessary to attract male moviegoers :P) and all the people ultimately became superfluous, but the robots were mostly cool.

There were some things I preferred in the old-school TV show, like Optimus Prime's ala-Shredder face mask, Starscream's voice (although that would have hurt the ears if they'd kept it in the movie) and Megatron's all-white look, which contrasted so well with his role as the main villain. Also, I missed Hot Rod and the Decepticon with the cartridge thingies in his chest that became animals.

On the other hand, there were things I enjoyed in the movie - I think they did Bumblebee (my favorite) justice in the film, and even though Optimus Prime still got his butt kicked :P I found him more interesting in the movie than in the TV show. I don't know if that's because I'm older now or because they made him a little bit cooler this time.

Best 2007 movie so far is still Transformers (unless 300 was in 2007, in which case girls will disagree with me).

Spiderman 3 was almost nice, until they made Harry Osborne save Spidey.

Shrek 3 was okay, but nowhere near as good as Shrek 2.

Pirates 3 was amazing, especially the final scenes where ships were blown to bits.

Fantastic 4 was weird.

Transformers was kick-ass.

Harry Potter 5 was sort of a letdown, since they removed some parts of the book which I enjoyed.

I finally got to watch the "Order of the Phoenix" movie yesterday. I'm sorry they cut out a lot of stuff, but am glad to see that besides preserving the important plot points, the adaptation remained true to the characters as JK Rowling intended and there were still nice moments to squeal about (no, I'm not talking about the Harry-Cho bit ::) )

I also must admit that I liked Luna Lovegood and *gasp* Umbridge in the movie, far more than in the book - I suppose I needed to see Luna "in person" to truly appreciate her, and Imelda Staunton was adorable ;D (Of course, the real Umbridge, the one in the book, is not.)

I just watched Michael Bay's THE ROCK for the umpteenth time on cable.

That scene where the Navy SEALS wind up getting massacred in the shower after being detected by the Force Recon Marines is really pure bullshit.

When a Navy SEAL fires his weapon he will hit his target, even if its just a nick, it will be a hit. This is something so ingrained in their training they could be doped, hungover and in full body traction and still do it. That the Marines simply picked them off without suffering a single casualty is stretching suspension of disbelief to the limit. Yes, all of the SEALs would have been killed. But NO, no way in hell they would not have taken out at least a couple of those Marines, regardless of their so-called elevated position.

Agreed.

Though as "Force Recon" those Marines weren't your regular Mean Green Mothers, some of them still should have been killed. Or at least hit. Even the SEALs' infiltration was tactically flawed: no point men to check the room before letting the rest of the team climb up.

For a no-nonsense, non-Chuck Norris depiction of spec ops, Black Hawk Down's portrayal of Delta Force is said to be pretty much accurate.

Wampum, the Deltas depicted in Ridley Scott's BLACK HAWK DOWN were as accurate as its gotten on the big screen, everything from infiltration and exfiltration, providing cover, escape and evade, were very real. And for the little screen, I'd say THE UNIT is the best, with its mix of field combat operations and intelligence / recon.

At times more literally that figuratively: in one episode, they pushed a car they didn't like off a cliff; in another, they drove to a junkyard to have a car squashed.

Si Jeremy Clarkson ang pinakamalakas manglait and Tiff Needell was the designated "stunt' test-driver. Occasionally, the other hosts would go along for the ride and get thrown around as Needell made a car spin, slide and do other maneuvers it wasn't designed for.

As a fan of the John Waters original, I have to say there were some things I preferred in that one to this new version, which I think is a film adaptation of the musical.

For one thing, while I applaud John Travolta for his interpretation of Edna Turnblad, complete with regional accent, Divine was still the ultimate Edna for me. The other characters in the original were edgier as well - Colleen "Vitamin C" Fitzpatrick's Penny Pingleton may not have dressed like a tart at the end of the movie, but she her "checkerboard chick" rebellion was enough; Michael St. Gerard's Link Larkin had more cojones than Zac Efron (but the guys in the remake are much better-looking - OMG JAMES MARSDEN :-*); and Lesley Ann Powers' Amber was much nastier than Brittany Snow's.

There were also bits that I missed in the remake, such as Ricki Lake!Tracy's line "It's not ratted - it's feathered" when her guy classmate was complaining about her hair, the P on Penny's blouse to show that she is permanently, positively punished, the encounter with the beatniks (where Tracy learns to iron her hair flat and the term "checkerboard chick" is introduced), and dude, more of those Hefty Hideaway fashions! :D I guess those parts got cut out of the musical and remake to make way for the musical numbers. Rats. (No, feathers.)

At the same time, though, I enjoyed this version a lot, too. The music was great, and Nikki Blonsky is just as adorable as Tracy as Ricki Lake was. (Can I just say I chortled when I saw her and Jerry Stiller - both members of the original cast - appearing in this one? :) ) I also like that Mrs. von Tussle was given a fairly powerful job in this one. Michelle Pfeiffer kicked butt in that role (originally played by Debbie Harry). And Queen Latifah always rocks. I wouldn't object to seeing this version of Hairspray again.

PS The girl who plays Li'l Inez sure looks a lot like Eric Salamat :o

Consensus at home about Hairspray, though, is that Zac Efron was the prettiest girl in the movie, and like Piolo Pascual, deserves an award for best male impersonation.

SkyCable subscribers let's make the most out of the Solar channels because starting January 1, 2008, solar channels (btv, jacktv, solar sports, 2nd avenue, etc and crime suspense) will be removed from Sky's lineup.

I'm hoping that Solar and Sky can still have a settlement of their misunderstanding for the sake of their customers but with Lopez family at the helm? It would take more than a miracle. >:(

There is still a little 4 months left before the end of the year, so also hoping that they can fix whatever problems are happening right now between Sky Cable and Solar Channels.

Unfortunately, it does looks like Solar Channels will be officially gone from Sky Cable starting Jan. 1, 2008.*

I was reading the Philippine Star this morning, and they have a full-page advertisement, revealing their 6 new channels which will debut also on Jan. 1. At the bottom of the page, they said that they will no longer be showing the Solar channels starting next year as well. How sad. :'(

and i learned na kahit daw sa destiny, may extra bayad just to watch basketball TV. parang premium channel daw nila. hasel.

so damay pa ang ETC, crime/suspense at jacktv. i couldn't care less about 2nd avenue. pero jacktv, crime/suspense and etc are must-have's, as far as i'm concerned. especially since STAR movies and STAR WORLD have fallen behind. kung tutuusin, halos useless na ang mga channel na ito.

bad move by the lopezes and SOLAR. pareho silang mayayari dito. tantsa ko, magbabalik din yang dalawang yan sa piling ng isa't isa eventually. gaya ng nangyari sa SKY at STAR a few years ago...

In my humble opinion-
Crime/ Suspense > AXN Beyond, Fox Crime
ETC > Chic, and whatever else they have
Solar Sports and BTV > Balls
Jack TV (especially my WWE!!) > Maxxx

MY FAVORITE SCENES:

• Meg Ryan's orgasm scene from "When Harry Met Sally" — It made me cum with laughter.

• Qui Gon Jin and Obi-Wan vs Darth Maul from "Star Wars: Episode 1" — Best swordfight ever. Second place goes to "The Princess Bride" chess swordfight; and third, to Yoda vs. Count Dooku in "Star Wars: Attack of the Clones."

• The decapitated horse scene from "The Godfather" — How's that for giving someone an offer they can't refuse.

• Staircase shootout from "The Untouchables" — Pistols and tommy guns ablaze. Baby tram falling down. Dramatic catch by Andy Garcia. One of the best cinematic slow-mo scenes.

• All the battle scenes from all "Lord of the Rings" movies — Okay yung battle speech ni Theoden: "Arise! Arise, Riders of Theoden! Spears shall be shaken, shields shall be splintered! A sword day... a red day... ere the sun rises!" Lalo na yung simpleng hirit ni Aragorn before the last battle: "For Frodo."

• Limping walk from "The Usual Suspects" — As Verbal Kint and Keyser Söze, Kevin Spacey walks away with a cult classic.

• The village sequence from "Platoon" — Barnes vs. Elias. Good vs. Evil. America's own internal conflict during the Vietnam War was captured in this sequence.

• Death mail scene from "Saving Private Ryan" — Long shot of a car pulling up a dirt road. Woman goes out to to greet the visitors. Woman collapses on the porch. No close-ups. No histrionics ala Philippine movies. Yet the scene evokes pain very effectively.

• Shoelace-tying scene from "Quiz Show" — Another example of the "Show it. Don't say it." dictum in movie making. Ralph Fiennes' character deliberately takes time to tie his shoelaces while in a car, so that students exiting school can congratulate him. Builds up the case of fame getting into his head.

• Boombox-over-the-head scene from "Say Anything" — John Cusack at his romantic best. And with Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes," one of the best soundtrack moments in film.

Dagdagan ko lang.

Some scenes I will never forget.

- The first appearance of dinosaurs (I think it was a brachiosaur) in "Jurassic Park." The T-Rex scene.

- Igby (Kieran Culkin) screaming his head off, banging on the door of his "girlfriend," Suki (Claire Danes), only to have his older brother (Ryan Philippe) step out after spending the night with her, from the movie "Igby Goes Down." Another key scene was when the two brothers killed their mother.

- Catwoman, in Batman Returns: "Hear me roar. Meow." Then the background goes boom.

- As pointed out, the kick-ass battle intro speeches in "The Lord of the Rings" movies ("DEAAAAAAATH! DEAAAAAAAAAAATH! DEEAAAAAAAAATHHHHHH!"). Another nice scene was the song of Treebeard, in the extended DVD version of "The Two Towers."

- The video montage of Matthew and Danielle, after Danielle decides to pick Matthew up from school, from "The Girl Next Door." Another key scene was when they were in the motel, Danielle starts to strip, and then asks Matthew, "Isn't this what you want? To fuck a porn star in a cheap motel?" And then she walks out.

- The aquarium scene in the Di Caprio-Danes version of "Romeo + Juliet."

- The scene in Shakespeare in Love where Viola (Gwyneth Paltrow) says goodbye to Will Shakespeare (Joseph Fiennes), after being ordered to do so by Elizabeth I.

- The scene with the succubi in Bram Stoker's "Dracula." Also, the scene between Dracula (Gary Oldman) and Mina (Winona Ryder), where Dracula tells Mina the truth about himself, and that last scene where Mina finally kills Dracula.

- The simultaneous "sex" scenes in "Trainspotting." And the scene with that terrible, dead baby crawling on the ceiling.

- Anne Hathaway talking about gang life in "Havoc." And yes, her sex scene too, because it was tragic.

- The bus scene in "Almost Famous," where everybody starts singing "Tiny Dancer." And that entire "My Cheri Amor" scene.

- The first time Sean Bateman (James Van Der Beek) and Lauren Hynde (Shannyn Sossamon) see each other in "The Rules of Attraction." Also, that suicide scene in the bathtub. And that entire first scene at the End of the World Party.

- Audrey Tatou in "Amelie," after the scene in the horror train.

- The last scene (cafe) in "Y Tu Mama Tambien."

- Al Pacino's monologue/discourse about God during his confrontation with Keanu Reeves in "The Devil's Advocate."

- The scene in "Vanilla Sky" showing an empty Times Square.

Ladybugs (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0104670/), starring the late Rodney Dangerfield, is not one of my all-time favorite movies, although I wouldn't say no to watching it again and again because of one of my favorite movie moments.

In the film, Dangerfield plays a guy who gets roped into coaching an all-girls' soccer team, and the team included an ugly-duckling girl with impossibly curly hair, braces and glasses who of course didn't think she was as pretty as her teammates. (She looked like a pre-teen/awkward age Keri "Felicity" Russell, but Keri's name isn't in the cast list.) When Ms. Ugly Duckling takes off her glasses, lets down her hair and scores a clutch goal in one of the big games, Dangerfield yells at her, "You're beautiful! You're beautiful!"

It's kind of cheesy and in hindsight, I think it's odd that she took off her glasses and all, but that part always makes me cry ;D

pareng chocoks, unang una, belated happy bday :)

well, aside from the obvious differences in price (ranging from mahal, mas mahal, to nagbibiro ka ba?), there are not really many things that separate plasma and LCD TV, according to an officemate who made an LCD purchase two weeks ago. they are both high-def or HD format by the way. sabi rin ng officemate ko meron naman daw, pero mostly superficial in nature. they all boast hi-resolution picture clarity of up to 1080 pixels, which is the ceiling for now. if you are torn between two or three competing brands and money is no object, get the model with the highest pixels.

mas buhay daw ang kulay ng LCD TVs, pero mas matingkad ang black ng plasma TVs. another consideration is the durability factor. my officemate says the plasma TV models we have use more energy than LCD models, kaya mas matibay ang mga LCD sa plasma.

i feel my officemate is eminently qualified to weigh in on the plasma vs LCD issue because he's a licensed electronics and communications engineer. in the final analysis, heto raw ang mga sukatan--the 1080p standard, screen size (anything bigger than 25 inches might become problematic as it gets on in years, especially plasma), and of course price.

allblue

belated happy birthday, chocoks! :)

some more points to consider: if the room where you'll put the tv has a lot of natural light, better go with LCD. pag plasma, kitang-kita yung glare and reflection. HDTV is already supported by 1080i. for now, the only way to get 1080p resolution is if you watch a dvd movie on blu-ray format.

Dark Knight
02-05-2008, 07:40 PM
Oh, sorry.

Im dissapointed because im expecting a Godzilla like movie. Instead, you watch the first hour with nothing more than building a romantic plot of the protagonists. Which IMO is not necessary in the story. Its not a monster movie but a love story set against a monster background.

The Blair Witch concept is totally dizzying that you want an Aspirin after seeing this movie. The moving camera style was first used in Die Hard with a Vengeance. The videocam doesnt seem to drain. Too many unnecessary scenes.

Hilariously is when one character, (sorry didnt know their names) being attacked by the monster and his friend asked him "are you alright?" Yeah!

I had a little exchange with bigfreeze a few days ago before the servers got wonky, expressing how much I enjoyed Cloverfield. I saw it twice. A number of people who I spoke to and also saw it said they liked it, while others didn't. Most of those who didn't like it didn't get into the hype or catch the Cloverfield-related websites like slusho.jp, targuato.jp, tidowave.com, 1-18-08.com, and the YouTube news videos about the destruction of the Chuai station.

Re the relationship angle: That might have been the point. Remember that this film was by JJ Abrams and Matt Reeves. What did they bring us? Felicity.

Ayon sa sumpa, sino man daw na gagamit sa pangalan niya at tularan ang kaniyang mga gawi ay mamatay ng mag isa, (lonely and alone).

Iron Man movie based on the Marvel comics is opening today in cinemas all over the country. Been reading good preview reviews about it, and plan to watch it this weekend, or early next week. I love watching big screen adaptations of the comic books of Marvel and DC that I read back when I was growing up* ;)

Spent the whole day yesterday watching the DVD edition of the late 70s 6-part TV mini-series ROOTS. A TV adaptation of Alex Haley's book of the same title.

Napanood ko na ito in it's original run on local tv nuong araw. Pero iba ang social consciousness ko nuon. Iba ang dating ng kwento. I remember asking something like, " Totoo ba ito?", more than anything else.

Pero, while viewing it yesterday, and this may be wrong or without basis, I see a perspective on slavery that is very much applicable to contemporary Philippine society.

Yung separation ng families.

Slaves were considered commodities owned by the slave master-- the "masser". They are declared properties by the masser which can be sold or used to pay off his loans. The child of a slave can be sold and forcibly separated from the family. Slave couples themselves can be separated for considerations that can benefit the masser alone.

All never to see each other again.

In our contemporary society, nandyan ang separation ng parent/s from their children due to economic reasons. Hindi lang patungkol sa OFW, but even for domestic workers, we also have hundreds of thousands of local migrant workers. Minsan sa isang linggo o isang buwan kung makita ng mga bata ang kanilang mga magulang.

Of course, kilala natin ang mga OFWs natin, they have to wait for long periods before they can feel the warmth of the presence of their families.

Nuong araw, working overseas was more of a choice for most Filipinos. But our own government failed and continues to fail to provide decent paying jobs for the greater part of our work force. For a majority of able bodied Pinoys, they will not let pass the opportunity to work abroad. Wala, isang kahig, isang tuka sila dito sa sariling bayan. Contractualization has deprived our work force of their leverage to bargain for better terms. But that's another issue.

Slavery was the working of economics then. They were deemed commodities.

Isa rin yan sa pagkahalintulad sa sarili nating OFW.

Our very own gov't would enter into trade agreements seeking allocation for the entry of Filipino labor in that foreign country.

Imbis na ipagpilitan maging maayos ng kalakalan dito para mabuhay ng maayos at maginhawa ang Pinoy, ayun ipipilit nilang makakuha ng job quotas abroad! Wala silang pakialam kung lumaki si Totoy at Neneng na di kilala ang amoy nang kanilang sariling ama o ina.

Ewan ko kung tama ang paghahalintulad ko. Tuwiran, maaaring mali.

Pero, saan niyo ihahalintulad ang isang government initiated and heavily regulated program of sending workers abroad.

Bakit walang programang nagsasaad na bawasan ito, bagkus, patuloy ang paghingi ng dagdag na quotas mula sa host countries. Di ba dapat mabawasan ito nang sa gayon ay di na mawalan ng isang ina o ama ang isang tahanan.

Maaring mababaw ang pananaw ko. Mali ang paghahalintulad. Mali ang pagkakalahad. Pero maraming bata rito sa lugar namin ang walang nanay o tatay dahil nandun sa malayo nagtatarabaho. Nasa malayo ang kanilang magulang namamasukan for slave wages.

Pero lamang din naman ang Pinoy sa Black slave, may taning ang contrata ni Pedro, si Kunte Kinte wala.
