Marvel Cinematic Universe Fanboy

I’m a big fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies that I actually told my then fiancee, “Ipapalabas na ang Ant-man sa July! Yun talaga ang highlight ng buong buwan ng July ko.”
“Yun talaga?” She asked, “Di ba kasal natin ang July.”

Movie Buff Family

I’m the resident bookworm of the family and I push my nieces to read good books every once in awhile.

ScorceseLucasSpielbergCoppola“Bakit di kayo nahilig magbasa?” I asked my sisters Ate Mimi, Ate Richie and Tem.
“More on movies kasi kami,” they all answered.
“Weh!?” I asked them, “Sige nga. Kung talagang movie buff kayo… Magbigay nga kayo ng pangalan ng isang direktor. Isa lang!” I dared them.
“Umm… Steven Spielberg!” They proudly answered.
“Nay! Napaka-given naman nun! Iba pa!” I dared them. I was hoping they would answer Steven Sodebergh, Martin Scorcese,  Chris Nolan or even just Woody Allen.
They were silent for quite a while when Tem screamed, “Binibining Joyce Bernal!”

I am Marty McFly

The Christian Voices Chorale celebrated its 8th Year Anniversary in an 80s themed party.
I dressed up as Marty McFly of the Back to the Future (one of my favorite movie) series but my choirmates asked me, “Mountaineer?”

Criticizing the Critics

“Bagsak naman yan sa critics eh,” I was referring to the movie reviews.
“Yang mga Critics na yan! Walang ginawa kundi mag-criticize!”
