Oscar Movie-time!

The latter half of January was just as productive for me, movie-watching wise! Again, it was a weird mix, I actually watched what suited my mood at the time I was watching. The last few days of January, however, were dedicated to watching the nine movies nominated for Best Picture in this year’s Oscar awards. Anyway, here’s a list of what I watched this second half of January:

– On the Waterfront
– A Streetcar named Desire
– Waiting for Superman
– The Wizard of Oz
– The Five-Year Engagement
– Sunset Blvd.
– Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark
– Hotel Transylvania
– Les Miserables
– Life of Pi
– A Dangerous Method
– Little Manhattan
– Lincoln
– Argo
– Star Trek (2009)
– Django Unchained
– Beasts of the Southern Wild
– Zero Dark Thirty
– Amour


Starting the year right!

It has been a good start of the year for me, in terms of movie watching. So far, I have already watched 13 films, and I will be watching one again today! I am actually thinking of “reviewing” the films I watched, but as it turns out, I can’t even regularly update this blog with my travels and eat outs, so how can I even review the films. Anyway, here’s my list so far:

Citizen Kane
Thy Womb (Sa’yong Sinapupunan)
Pitch Perfect
Cabin in the Woods
Some Like It Hot
Singin’ in the Rain
I Love You, Man
Annie Hall
Dr. Strangelove (or how I stopped worrying and loved the bomb)
City Lights
Schindler’s List
Raging Bull

Whew! It’s a weird mix, I know, mixing the classics (one more round of Citizen Kane, anyone) with Filipino “blockbusters” (Sisterakas). I have to say, there’s a reason why movies like Annie Hall achieved its pop culture status, why Charlie Chaplin is considered one of the greatest comedians, and why everybody knows how to sing Singin’ in the Rain. There’s something to be said about each of the movies I watched, I thoroughly enjoyed them all!
