Nothing is impossible.
Some things are just impossible to happen.
There’s always a first time.
Time is money. Time is gold. But a heart of gold is as precious, too.
– my takeaways from today’s unplanned but much needed muni-muni. Millennial-ing, pwede rin.
I can stop right there pero parang mas gusto ko pa magkwento.
Kasi there are things in life that turn out to be not as bad as we regard them to be. Other times, they are the answer to our questions, the reprieve to our troubles, the pitstop to our seemingly unending pursuit to whatever, wherever, be whoever.
What I mean is nanood ako ng pelikula. The kind of movie that has a title that raises my Tita eyebrows, and whose lead stars I don’t really like. May mga ganong tao, no? Di ka naman inaano, pero the sight of them ruins your day. Worsens your already bad day. Perfect kasi. Ha ha
So nanood ako ng, as per Twitter, #LYTTSAB.
There’s this local film critic whose reviews I would agree with most of the time. Minsan harsh siya. But valid naman. Anyway there’s this film that I honestly had no ounce of intention of watching. But it’s the only “parang pwede sa mood ko ‘to” movie that’s lined up for screening this afternoon. And then I remembered that this film critic gave it a 5-star rating. Huh? Eh Tagalog. Rom-com pa. Obviously, I didn’t read his article. Di man lang na intriga bakit. Eh sa ayoko nga. No interest.
To cut the story short, it was worth my time and money. Yup.
Iyak konti. Tawa rin. Kilig slight. Pero more sa malalim na life hugots.
Also, I remember in her TedTalk, the director and writer of this film said, “perfect magsulat kung broken-hearted ka. Kebs sa grammar, spelling, punctuations. All out lang. Minsan nga may pera sa heartbreak eh. Tignan mo si Adele.”
The movie, kahit pang bagets, dealt with emotions that I can very much relate with. Not the “feeling relate” lang kind. As in, I know and I understand level.
I said na, no, it was worth my time and money and konting luha? Abaw.
The bagets, too, so good the acting chops. Proved my judgement wrong. And though much of the storyline -except for the extraterrestrial part – has been used countless number of times, if done in a good taste and aims for quality more than just pleasing the “people” is always worth giving a chance.
Minsan talaga, kailangan mo lang maniwala.
All italicized quotes are lifted from the film. Mabuhay ka, Antonette Jadaone! I love you. No more hurriedly done, pang quota lang movies na, please. Please! You don’t belong there.
