Big Time!!

How’s it goin dudez.

I’m chillin here at home on a Saturday night. Been quite busy in school for the past week so I took some time off. Day off, you may call it since I’m being a slave in the school anyway haha. So I was having a great time just slouching in the couch, watchin some sitcoms and movies on TV and I saw House. I’m not really a fan of television series but I watched one full episode. Now I can’t wait to get a copy of it on the DVD! It’s freakin hilarious and somehow serious at the same time I’m sure I’ll love it.

House: You’re pregnant. (Mentions symptoms)
Girl: You’re kidding.
House: Are you virgin?
Girl: No.
House: You’re pregnant.

Hahaha. After watching House I switched to CinemaOne. This movie I saw next was a pinoy indie film. I could tell because it doesn’t seem to be like those high-costing productions we usually see on the cinemas. And after watching it, man I suddenly became a fan of independent films! Y’know you may actually see them as small-time flicks but hey, they’re really really worthy to watch. Nothing fancy. Not much costumes or effects but the plot plus the acting are simply superb. Yeah yeah I know, those multimillion productions are cool too but hey let’s not forget where they’ll all end up – the cinematic wasteland. TV. Home Box Office. Pretty sad, isn’t it?

So the film I saw is called “Big Time” and it’s about two funny crooks who want to hit it bigtime in the criminal world. They were accompanied by a pretty chick who wants to be a famous star (and who looks like my hot singer-crush Barbie Almalbis by the way, hehe) and some f*cked-up guy who is actually the son of a local crime lord they were hitting on for some ransom money! Then things started to go crazy as they kept on changing their plans and just going nuts. All in all it’s a kickass flick with all the funny jokes and silly portrayal of the actors. It’s even satirical coz it’s trying to make fun of the local culture, showbiz, etc. In the end it was all about making decisions and holding on to your dreams. Being patient with life.

My rating: 4.5/5. Highly recommended!

PS I don’t really write reviews and I don’t wanna spoil it all for ya so if you want some nicely written summary you can just go here. Or you may want to watch this.

In this crazy world, everybody wants to go big time.

Hmm, anyway enough TV. Final Destination 3’s on now and I’m just so not in the mood to see people die in a gross and excruciating way. I’m signing off!

All the best!

    house m.d. is really good. go for it! it’s filled with cynical smart-alecks and moral problems that will make you want for more episodes. that’s what it made me feel…

    SPENCE says: Haha. Yeah, nailed it. I almost bought a 3-season dvd earlier but I’m tryin to say no to impulsive buying. lol

    got myself a dvd for house too! haha. AND i’ve watched BIGTIME because i bought myself a dvd last year, and it’soawesome my favorite scene was the escalator conversation, how innovative camera angles! but the ending was of oddity. 😐

    SPENCE says: OK, strike two. I’m getting House MD later. And yeah the ending was odd. But it still rocks. Haha. And their conversations. “Sinong mas pipiliin mo- si Cristy Fermin o si Lolit Solis?” wtf

    hey there! thanks for visiting my blog. and yes, i forgot that. Too much in my mind, maybe. It’s true. I took my advice and bought 2 dozen of CDs since my brother wanted back-ups on our files. I was only able to use 1/4 of it. argh.

    hmmmm. indie films? My classmate told me they are even better than the filipino movies in the cinemas.

    Being big time? i think its because you’d get to be treated well when you are. Who doesnt want to be treated like a queen? =))

    you just reminded me that i still have my friend’s dvd of 1408. im too scared to watch it:-S

    thanks again. oh ghad. such a long comment.

    SPENCE says: Thanks, thanks! OK let’s do this. 1. I haven’t seen nuff indie films to say it’s better than pinoy flicks. But compare ’em to crappy foreign-wannabe productions and I’ll have to back her up on that. 2. Queen. Or King. Hmm what’s 1408? Hehe.

    I think I’m the only person on this planet who hasn’t watched the entire season of House. Everyone says it’s as good as a doctor’s prescribed pain killer.. but I dunno. I have yet to see! 🙂

    I’m like that also.. yung tipong unang nood pa lang, na-addict na. That’s how I fell into the whole One Tree Hill addiction. Hehe.

    Linked you already, btw! Sorry it took so long.

The Knight

I'm a sizzling knight in shining armor! I'm Sir Lancelot and I'm ready to take your breath away. Haha. No, seriously, I'm just a boy trying to grow up; a guy trying to look for his place in this f*cked-up world. Amen? Amen.
