watching 2 movies back-to-back (not so impulsive really)

I know I'm just one of the many who would rather wait and buy the video or even find time to watch movies online or download them to their pc and digital devices rather than spend money watching movies in cinemas... especially now with the onslaught of 3D movies - gah! even horror movies are on 3D now! haha

So you may not be surprised to know that I was able to watch only my 2nd 3D movie last night! What a better way to refresh my 3D movie watching experience but through an animated movie - Disney's Tangled! their re-imagination of the famous fairy tale story of Rapunzel - incidentally it's Disney's 50th animated feature! - makes you want to reminisce and buy all the animated movies huh - all 49 of them!



Technically speaking I was apprehensive at first since I haven't watched a 3D movie in a long while... I didn't realize that now you had to wear the 3D glasses the whole time (the 1st movie I watched only had certain scenes in 3D)... I was expecting to get headaches halfway through the movie... but well it was an OK experience... yup! the characters were three-dimensional! haha I particularly liked the floating lanterns scene! You got to see it for yourself! And as expected I had fun with the songs of the movie - yup! it's another Disney musical by Alan Menken... and with the voice of Mandy Moore as Rapunzel you can not be disappointed... their songs might not end up as chart toppers or the usual ballads like the previous movie theme songs...but heck they still delivered!

So I give this movie... 4 1/2 stars! haha You can watch in 3D or not it would still have the usual Disney magic people have grown to love!

Define impulsive...

Well my friend and I was watching the last full show of Tangled and when we went out of the cinemas... we saw that the last full show of Love and Other Drugs was in 10 minutes! We originally wanted to watch that movie too! GAH! Why the heck not?! It was a good thing the ticket booth was still open and they entertained us... and so we rushed in and watched this romantic comedy starring Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal...

Honestly this was the 1st movie of Jake that I have ever watched... and I am not really a fan? or it's not that I don't like him... he is just so-so to me... but gah! There were lots of Jake in the movie! hahaha Ok so maybe I can include him in my sexy leading men list now...No wonder it was R-13! haha not to mention seeing lots of Anne too... yup! the movie is Love and Other Drugs - a movie based on this book about a viagra salesman so what do you expect?! haha


It was funny...straightforward and a no nonsense take on adult relationship... it was very realistic... for the most part at least haha...I may not have memorized quotes from the movie - that would take me to either watch it online or buy the video when it comes out - but there was this scene wherein Jake's character goes: "I like this... I like us..." - and in another scene: "you meet thousands of people and none of them really touch you...and then you meet that one person and your life is changed"- well don't quote me on that one I have to watch it again! haha

So for this movie... I give 4 stars simply because it was not perfect anyway and it left me wanting more! oops! SPOILER! haha
