Time Travel & Shadowhunters

Done watching Rubinot and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones…

My internet a bit slow so thought of writing a new blogpost. However, after minutes of just staring at the dashboard and no words written… I stopped. I have so many pending post to share yet cant find the words to say, as usual. Earlier was happy because just this week ive written 3 post in 3 days and now Ive break it.

Anyways, to keep out boredom I watched movie instead online. Thats when I found Rubinot. Was curious on its title and incomplete summary…

Rubinot is a fantasy German movie about time traveling. Dont worry its in English though.
The movie was good but left me with so many question in the end. I do hope that in the part 2 they can answer those because I just thought the movie end in a nonsense way.

Next movie I watched is the City of Bones. I saw the trailer of this last year…. Arrhhggg!! I regret not watching this on the big screen. This movie is so great that im wishing for a part 2.
The movie is all about shadow hunters — a half-human, half-angel mortals. They chase demons. In the movie vampires, witches and werewolf also present.

I just love movies about vampires, witches, shadowhunters and the likes. Cant get over and still would like to watch for more movies in this genre. Can you recommend me any great movies or TV series in this genre? And whats your favorite movie?

Drop it in the comment section below. Thank you in advance.

P.S. After watching the movie I wrote this post but then my blog had some trouble that I cant login. So I had to wrote this on my mobile’s notepad to post when my blog’s dashboard is back.  

Rurouni Kenshin

I just finished watching samurai today at SM City CDO. At first I have no interest in watching it even though im a fan of the anemi version of samurai x. Im not much a fan of to much brutality and blood shedding movie of which I know what the movie would be in its anime version. My reason is that Ive seen much violence in real world that I dont want to add up more by watching more of it on movie.
December 5, 2012 was the start of Rurouni Kenshin (live action) screening in SM City CDO where it exclusively shown. Before it started screening I actually ask my friends who will surely want to watch it and had anticipated for the movie. I just thought ill just tag along with them and yes im curious on the artist.
Today is its 3rd day of screening here in the Philippines and rumors says that todays going to be the last day of screening. After hearing this I suddenly felt the urge to watch it. However, each of my friends watch on their own, so that left me, myself and I who aint seen the movie yet. So even if im alone, off i go and watch the movie.

Unexpectedly, I had tolerated the fight scenes. Takeru Sato, who plays Kenshin Himura is so handsome that would make every woman including me swoon while watching his every moves. He was in character to Kenshin Himura both on the fight scenes and drama scenes. The fight scenes are epic and is the same in the anime version. I say everyone work hard and portray each of their characters perfectly as well as the cinematography. It was a great movie. No wonder everyone is anticipating for a sequel.

My favorite fight scenes...
  • When Kenshin rescue Kaoru and act as if just someone who is innocently swift off Kaoro and just by chance protect her at the same time from being hit by Jin-E sword. The running and jump stunt is what I like most on it.
  • Kenshin's fight scene with 10 samurai's of Kanryu who wants to own the Dojo.
  • Kenshin and Sanosuke fighting the 250 samurai's at Kanryu's Mansion. 
  • And of course Jin'e and Kenshin fight specifically Kenshin showing the High heaven style, Twin dragon strike. The result will make Jin'e elbow broken and tendons snapped of which he can use his arms to handle sword fight.
I dont really say the movie is a version of Samurai X anime. Its because the story in the Rurouni Kenshin (Live Action) is a mixed scenes from the anime. You can say more like a summary also because the same thought and enemies where also in the movie.

Random scenes of which Rurouni Kenshin (Live Action) differs from the anime series...
  • Doctor Gensai and his 2 grand daughters where not on the movie.
  • Supposed to be Kenshin and Sanosuke will fight head to head and then Kenshin will defeat him. In the movie Kenshin never really fight Sanosuke all he did was avoid every attack from Sanosuke.
  • After Kenshin and Sanosuke fight it should be that he will be living in Kamiya Dojo. In the movie he isn't, although at the ending he is already sleeping Kamiya Dojo. Hmm probably a hint on a sequel movie huh?!
The movie actually left me wondered will I ever find a man like him. Well, someone who is willing to protect me whatever that cost him... Not the manslayer Kenshin but Kenshin the Rurouni (wanderer). Lol Just some crazy wish for thinking of a loveless woman. ^_^
Anyways, I will definitely anticipate a sequel of this movie, although there is no clear hint of a part II on the movie. Maybe on the sequel Yokohiro is already great at his fighting skills and Sanosuke showing off his futakoi wani(Im not sure if its the right spelling) technique.

Step Up Revolution Review & A bit Of Spoiler

Done watching Step Up Revolution on cinema today but I'm still not over it. I watched with my Sunday classmates Bang, Jacqs, Rox and along with our official bossing/driver Ding after our commercial cooking and massage class at Gaisano Mall Cinemaplex. We actually went first to Limketkai Center but its no longer showing there because they said it was not a hit. Thank God we didn't change our mind even if Bourne Legacy was also showing.

Man! The movie was damn excellent, probably my fave among the past Step Up movies. The dance choreography was awesome, as well as the cast dance pretty good! Yes there's not much to tell on how the story went but viewers is already entertain on the dance itself! The effects are terrific also.

Here some of my favorite scenes in the movie...
  • First on the list the handsome dancers, sexy abs and envious booty shakes from the girl dancers!
  • I love Penelope's (The DJ) trolley suitcase that reveal a huge set of speakers.
  • The cars on hydraulics and that part wherein dancers stand on top of it.
  • Mercury's "The Mob" arts;
  • The graffiti that he set up 5 huge panes of glass and starts spray painting with the word “The Mob”.
  • Sculpture out of forks and knives that reads “The Mob”.
  • Old scraps of which form into a giant flame-breathing sculpture monster that reads, “We are not for sale.”
  • Art gallery performances where dancers are painted to resemble life-sized sculptures and blends on the wall paintings.
  • The protest mob dance that use steel tube that spark against the ground along with a hip-hop style routine.
  • Dancers mimic a fall from an insane height and then leap and pulled back up by another dancer as if marionettes.
  • And lastly, how they plot the intro and exit of the mob really amazing!
Meet the talented cast....
