Silver Screen 1.1
It's movie time!

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (Universal Studios) - I admit that even though I don't know how to drive, I love pimped out cars and roaring engines. One thing's for sure in the third installment of Fast and the Furious: The cars are sweet! It's like I'm almost drooling over the shiny paint jobs and the wicked decals of the cars used in the movie, not to mention the high-speed car chases/races and the sound of the screeching tires. The only thing missing is the smell of burnt rubber and the experience would be complete. However, this movie lived up to its title: Tokyo Drift, but went waaaay overboard with the "drift" part. It was too much -- the drift part that is. One or two drift tricks would do but to incoporate it even in the car chases? Again, It was too much. Besides the horrible acting and the bland story line, One thing that bothers me is that the lead actress looks a lot like Brook Burke (leading lady in Need for Speed Underground 2). Hmmm? Did this movie snatched some points from the video game? Anyway, If you're a speed freak and love cars then go watch this movie! You'll have a great time plus there's a very nice treat for Fast and Furious fans at the end of the movie.

The Lake House (Warner Bros) - This movie is a perfect example of the saying "Nothing beats the Original". Sure, the cinematography's great; the shots are awesome. I give credit for the director for that but this movie didn't capture the magic of the original film. The execution of the ending was badly done. For first timers, this movie is a nice way to burn some time but I still recommend the original by Sidus "Il Mare". The sea's better than the lake.

Take the Lead (New Line Cinema) - Strut your stuff! Shake it! Shake it! This movie about getting jiggy with it -- ballroom style. This film proves that Antonio Banderas haven't lost his mojo with the ladies. I mean most of the viewers were women (1/3 of them were in the senior citizen age bracket). Besides, the movie's great. It has a nice story, although some parts are dragging and it has some loose ends. But the dance sequences were nicely executed and make up for the flaws of the film. Filipino-American Dante Basco was featured in the film and he just proved that Filipinos has this natural talent in dancing (We like to shake our thing? right?! shake it! wiggle-wiggle!). Take the Lead introduces a new style of ballroom dancing that the younger generation might appreciate. It's some kind of a hybrid style; a cross between hip-hop and ballroom. I must admit, the dance moves are cool. I recommend this movie because it's somewhat worth watching.

Cars (Disney/Pixar) - I just said that I love cars right? Now how could I even let this one slip right through? Cars, from the director of Toy Story and A Bug's Life, is one sweet movie. I know, I know its somewhat absurd to watch talking cars but hey what's wrong with that? I bet you've seen the movie about the talking clown fish. Anyway, I was amazed on the detail of this 3d animation. The cars are slick and shiny almost like real-life toys! Even the backdrop were something to be amazed about. I had a couple of laughs with this film especially in the credits part. It was really amusing. The story was very nice -- heartwarming BUT it lacks something. Just can't figure out what. Although it was meant for kids, the adults can take a lesson from it too. Watch it in the theatres, it's a nice experience.
