Of soap operas and Mary Sues…

The Bold and the Beautiful would probably be the only US soap I've followed closely enough over the past eight years. Nevermind if we're eighteen months behind with the episodes in Star World, I've managed to keep myself updated with the recent US storyline through various websites I visit. The US soap world is twisted, I tell you. Filipinos will find their patience running out with unending or recycled storylines thrown at the them by the writers.


I cannot wait for this whole Twilight mania to be over in no time. The hype is becoming this [] close to annoying that I avoid messageboards about it like the plague. When I casually mentioned to my officemate that I was thinking of giving away my Twilight book, she looked at me as if I was spellbound to actually considering giving it up. Really, no amount of bribery can make me appreciate the annoying twat of a Mary Sue who goes by the name of Bella Swan.

MOVIE: Enchanted

I fell in love with this movie a year too late! Yes, being the miser that I am, I never even bothered to watch this during its regular theater run. But after seeing this last night on Star World, I shall rave about it to my heart's content. 

Looking absolutely stunning throughout the entire flick, Amy Adams was a revelation as Princess Giselle. Who knew she could carry a tune? Or that she and Patrick Dempsey had such amazing chemistry? Really, McDreamy's hotness factor (in my standards) shot up because of it.

My favorite part has got to be when Robert and Giselle were dancing and he was unknowingly humming the song to her. Totally cheesy, but it nearly moved me to tears. It's interesting to note that Disney hasn't lost its touch when it comes to fairytales. Disney princesses were a huge part of my childhood, and now, even as an adult, they still weave that magic over those who believe.

After all, there's still a child in each one of us.

Rants and Raves

For the life of me, I simply cannot get it why people keep on wishing (or insisting) that Emily's secret on Criminal Minds has to do with her sexuality. Now don't get me wrong. I have nothing against members of the third sex but too much slash ruins my TV. Maybe I'm just affected because she is my favorite character and I simply don't see her as one. Please Ed Bernero, prove them wrong!


Two episode so far and I'm still not feeling any love for Deanna Russo's Sarah on Knight Rider. Now that they've decided to get rid of her father on the series for its remaining episodes, I'm secretly wishing her character would follow suit. Justin Bruening deserves someone totally hot and kick-ass! Not some chick with a penchant for bra-less, strapless attires.


Dirty, Sexy Money is cancelled?!? My sister is crushed.

Ginny Weasley's kick-ass quidditch attire. Ahhh, I love it! Too bad we have to wait for 8 more months.

I'm off to watching The House Bunny later. Nothing like some good, old chick flick for some mindless TV viewing.

I go against type

It's weird, but I actually found myself enjoying while watching an episode of Knight Rider. What's even more surprising was that my hard-to-please sister was able to sit through an entire episode without any complain. There's no denying that Justin Bruening is easy on the eyes and he makes the show tolerable. But I'm afraid I cannot say the same thing for his leading lady. Deanna Russo's acting comes of as stiff, making her character very unsympathetic with viewers. Can they just bring in a new love interest for Mike, please? Oh, and I don't know if anyone has noticed but guess who Justin reminds me of?

Another Justin (Chambers, that is)!

No, that is not Katrina Halili.

Korean actress Han Chae Young (Sassy Girl Chun Hyang, Only You) joins the cast of Boys over Flowers in the special role of Min Seo Hyun. I can't wait to see this since I loved Meteor Garden and HYD so much. Now Korea's joining the bandwagon with their own adaptation of the famous manga. Hmmm, this better be good.

So, will the Philippines follow suit? Gawd, I hope not!

Random updates…

With the recent events this week, looks like 24 trumped Commander in Chief. Good luck, Mr. Obama. President Palmer would be proud.

Am I the only one excited to see Grant Show's stint as Addison's brother, Archer, on Private Practice? Boy, he sure looks good in the promo pictures. Thankfully, he ditched the porn 'stache he sported for Swingtown.

Ohhh, Kim Sam Soon as a US prime time series? Let's hope it won't be as disastrous as its Philippine adaptation.
