Keep Calm and Watch Movies

When asked about my hobbies, I will always include watching movies to my list. I'm a cinephile. I appreciate most genres but being a female creature that I am, I have soft spot for rom-coms and such but I also dig animation/horror/suspense/thriller/sci-fi whenever the mood calls for it and when I'm in need of a movie fix. However, just a confession, I rarely go to the cinema. It was only late College when I enjoyed going to movie-house with my friends.

From then, I see to it that I get to watch the films I am looking forward to in the cinemas. That is, if the time and bills permit.

I must say that the 2013 movie adaptation, Warm Bodies, made me fall in love with watching movies since it was the first and the only movie I ever watched alone. It brought a liberating feeling. By watching it alone, it made me realize that watching movies is not just about having company. It is also not just a hobby being done to let time pass by. It is rather a moment of discovery.

When you're focused with the flow of the story and drawn to the emotions of the characters and the film, you discover lessons and you get to express yourself. Just like in this not-so-deep zombie movie, I felt love even if I was alone and I got to experience solidarity and got lost for a moment.

Warm Bodies (2013)

Movies are a part of my childhood as I look back in the days of Betamax and VHS players. However, one movie made me a movie junkie (and in effect me wanting to somehow pursue making one in the future, and that is the French art film "Amelie."

2006 film Just My Luck is my all-time fave! Ashley Albright has always been lucky but when she lost her luck with Jake Hardin, both lives changed. I love how luck and misfortune brought them together and made them realize that they shouldn't depend their lives on luck. Also, I heart Danny of McFly!! So cute! :)

I've always been a fan of Disney movies since I was a child but there is this one movie that always comes to my mind when talking about movies. I am Sam. This movie is the first movie that made my heart melt just like how Miracle in Cell no. 7 did. Coming from a broken family, I've been a fan of movies that the central topic is about a father's love. I've always loved a good movie that can make me cry my heart out.

Your suggestions are nostalgic. Thank you for refreshing my mind with those films I could revisit. :)

Batang X (local film).. HAHA It was my first time to watch a movie alone and I was 7 y.o back then. I guess that's when I found out my interest and love in watching movies. Good thing we already have the GMovies app! I use the app myself and it's very convenient! Ano ba naman yung 20php kung comfy at middle seat ka diba? :) Please pick me if you win, please please please!?!! :))) Best of luck to you! -carlocross@gmail.com :)
