Remake

A lot of people asked me what I thought about the new Beauty and the Beast movie. My answer was "I watched it online, a movie copy, I got bored after 42 minutes and decided not to finish it."

Beauty and the Beast was my favorite Disney movie of all time. I probably watched it hundreds of times I've practically memorized the script. I was initially excited upon seeing the trailer and the poster... until I watched the teaser of Belle (Little town).

Emma Watson couldn't possibly dropped her British accent and this is supposed to be a French village. I didn't mind the singing either. 

It was this particular scene that disappointed me. You see, Belle in the animation movie was dreamy and she lit up when someone asked her about her book. In the live action movie, she looked just as bored as the rest of the town.

I was expecting more in the live action since this is already a real actor! Unlike animation, the animator has to first draw the scenes, making sure to capture the emotions and the mouth opening. Second, the voice talent would then need to watch the movie and try to adjust to the emotions and the mouth movements.

I just feel that Emma could've done a lot better.




I didn't make it far enough during the first 42 minutes to make it to the library scene but when I heard that didn't go too well either, it is already a deal breaker for me.

Something tells me, soon they will be remaking the Little Mermaid as well.

I wonder how they can execute "Part of your World" convincing enough?

Uh oh hello

Oh hi. Yeah, I'm back. And this time hopefully I'd stay a little longer.

I feel like I have to explain my disappearance though wala naman talagang malalim na dahilan. It was simply because, I got bored.

I had this yearning to make a connection, to belong, I was looking for that content or passion or whatever to make me feel excited and escape from all the monotony of daily work. Luckily, I managed to find a company where I stayed longer than a year. Achievement yun ha? Prior to that I always had to come across one version of kupal after another that would drain my energy and zest for life that I would rather resign than drag myself to work.

For the longest time I have been enjoying an almost permanent shift with weekends off. Forever. 

Petiks na work, minus the kupaloids with almost double the pay I was earning before. If that isn't fucking awesome I don't know what is.

And yet here I am. I managed to retire from the chained office laptop and here at home, hurray! I'm in front of the computer again and on the internet. How fun.

If there was anything I enjoyed the most of out my job was that now I can afford to travel more often. Pangatlong balik ko na sa Japan this coming August and Cebu sa November. Nakapasyal na din ako sa Iloilo, Bohol, nth time sa Boracay and Baguio.

Bongga di ba? Di na ako poorita :)

May bago din akong hobby... building Gundam. Pakk! Ang macho pakinggan pero honestly parang manicure-pedicure lang ang principles applied to a plastic err robot.

So bakit pa ako nagbalik sa blog? Anjan naman ang Facebook.

Napaka ingay ng Facebook. Sure anjan lahat ng content. Videos, advertisements, articles etc. Hindi ko na nga kailangan bumisita sa porn websites? Andami na hubadero na pwedeng i-follow and maya't maya magselfie delivered straight to my feed. How convenient.

For some time sumawsaw na din ako sa political topics and issues of national concern. Punyeta. Lalong magulo. Minsan hindi ko na alam paano i-process ang lahat naii-stress lang ako lalo. Eventually, kebs na. Hindi ko na sinundan ang mga bagay bagay. Hayaan ko na lahat ng political pundits at ang kung anu mang agenda nila sa buhay ang gusto nilang ipaglaban. 

Bumalik na lang ako sa aking bubble of comfort ng cute animals and hunky boys. Nakaka happy pa sila.

Anyway, I'll try to backread on the things I have missed.

Kahit minsan parang nakakatuwa yung mga likes and shares, nakakamiss din pala yung aabangan mo in a few hours, at the end of the day kung may nagbasa ng entry mo, kung may nagcomment. Inaabangan mo kung anu din ang ganap sa life ng ibang bloggers, how they see the world. Their world.

I missed writing too.
