Movie Review: The Dark Knight Rises

Hello Gorgeous Reader!

 

One of the major movies to hit the theater this 2012, “The Dark Knight Rises”, remained true to its dark version genre. Ironically, both on screen and off.

It appears that death has befallen the film once more as a madman open fired at the movie goers on the premier of the film in Denver Colorado. This was but the second death off screen. The last franchise installment was also known to be the last film of actor Heath Ledger who played “The Joker” in the said movie.

It was a sad day for the movie going community when the news broke and echoed throughout the web.I honestly had second thoughts on watching the film. But since this is one of the must-see movies of the year, I had to brave through it.

Despite the fact that my heart was racing during the shootout scenes (paranoia strikes), I felt like the movie did not quite meet my high expectations.

FLAWS

There were scenes that were plainly boring. I’m referring to some dialogs and fight scenes that lacked impact because for some reason the score had poor or no volume at all. The good use of sound effects or score definitely makes 80% difference in a scene and some scenes in the movie just lacked this quality.

Fight scenes were poorly choreographed. This installment lacked the spunk that made the franchise a hit. I noticed that Batman turn his back on Bane and climbed the steps so randomly like he wasn’t in a fight. Even the plot had some loose strings to it. For example; hundreds of cops get trapped underground for weeks and not a single one thought of finding a way to get out. Are cops really that lousy or stupid?

It also lacked the element of surprise. I just felt that the story was quite predictable and shallow. It didn’t have the depth of emotional torture that pushes a man/woman to darkness which was awesomely played in the last film with Joker and Two-Face’s characters.

HIGHLIGHTS

Still, it includes a power house of actors. Bale was Batman himself as usual. There were also cool fight scenes with Hathaway. Gordon-Levitt also did pretty well. In general, acting was good but the direction and plot just kind of pulled it down.

Batman’s gadgets and cutting edge mobile technology was also jaw-dropping cool.

So on the rate of 1 to 5; five being the highest, I give this movie

a THREE, it’s good enough to see at the theaters… but I recommend not to bring children, wear bullet-proof vest and drop to the ground at the sound of real gun fire.

 

My thoughts and prayers go to all the victims of the unfortunate event in Denver Colorado. ~_~

My Speech as a Guest Speaker

Hello Gorgeous Reader!Last March 28, 2014 , I got the rare opportunity to give a speech at the graduation ceremony of my alma mater KM5 now named Fr. William F. Masterson S.J. elementary school.So a little back story. I gave a speech on my own graduation way back year 2000 and it was miserable. I was very sick that day, I even passed out at school before the program. I was there because I volunteered to help with the preparation stuff. During the program I was puking, the world was spinning and I felt so cold. They had me seated while I gave my speech and well, I cried. But I knew I had the best of friends then because my classmates cried with me. Although I know that some of my batch-mates are far more successful than I am and thus more credible to give a speech; I didn’t think twice and said ‘yes’ to my former teacher’s invite. After all, not everyone gets a shot at redemption. (shoutout: *Thank you very much Sir Janeo for the opportunity.*)Okay, so here’s the speech that I gave. It…

Pamamanhikan: A Filipino Tradition

Hello Gorgeous Reader!This is actually an over due blog post. I’ve written a previous draft on this weeks ago but for some reason my computer decided to delete all my drafts. Now I’m forced to rewrite this blog or technically write a new one.Last April first my fiancé went to my residence to formally ask for my hand in marriage from my parents. This is a tradition among Filipinos called “Pamamanhikan”.We’ve been talking about having each other’s parents meet after the engagement. Our first option was to take them out for dinner. But we kind of hesitated over the idea because it would be super awkward to talk about our marriage plans with other people eavesdropping on us at a restaurant. Alas, it was my fiancé’s trusted league of merry-men (a.k.a his workmates) who convinced him to do it the traditional way. That is, to go to my house with his parents and family members bringing food. It was a great idea since it would be the best venue for our families to meet so that the wedding itse…

How to Get Married: Legal Requirements

Hello Gorgeous Reader!NOTE: Please be informed that this blog is based on Cagayan de Oro City requirements. The process for other places may vary and is beyond my jurisdiction. @_@For a marriage to be called valid or legally binding; it must be registered/recorded at the government branch called Civil Registrar. It is basically the logbook of our government. The legality of a marriage has many purposes such as civil, financial,  health benefits, and many more.Below are the steps to get your “Marriage License”.STEP 1Find someone who is willing to marry you. This someone must not be currently within a marriage or ‘free to marry’. Note that there is no divorce in the Phils. Even if that person has been living separately from his/her spouse for longer than 10 years he/she is still considered married by law unless his/her wife/husband is already dead. This person must also be of legal age (18 years old and above). If either of you are within 18-21 years old; you are required to present an …
