I remember a friend saying that if we are to become true lovers of books, we should keep our minds open to all subjects.
And much like what I said in my book review before that the only problem with the Hunger Games book is that I can’t stop reading it, I can say the same thing with its movie adaptation: I can’t stop watching it and I want to watch it again.
Oh finally. I finaly found some time to do some reading. And though it was not my intention (or possibly it’s just plain coincidence), the first book I read for this year is from the same author of the first book I read last year: Bob Ong. What are the odds? And oh what a [ Read More ]

After all, Peter Jackson and team plans to make this a 2 part movie. Which is interesting considering that this is not [ Read More ]
The Fellowship is broken. The nine walkers is now down to eight. Pippin and Merry were captured by the Orcs. Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas were on foot searching for them. Gandalf is believed to be dead. Boromir is confirmed to be dead. Frodo and Sam has to take the accursed Ring of Power to the [ Read More ]
Some people have to be heroes and others have to be asked. I can’t believe I’m quoting Sarah Walker while writing this. Sorry, I just really miss Chuck and I still have more or less 5 weeks before I’d get to see him again. Anyhow, I’ve seen all three movies before I read the trilogy. [ Read More ]
