that was spotted. that too. and I'm gonna spot that gay republican guy.

Well, actually I watched two of these movies not recently, but they just came to mind recently.

I always have a thing with movies with limited settings, short line of cast, and brief timeline. Maybe I should switch to dramas soon. Well, 28 Days Later offers one of them. Eventhough the backdrop of the story rings a bell a lot to Resident Evil, they're still quite different with each other. I mean you won't see well-equipped army deal with the outbreak, you will just witness a common guy who's trying to survive through it. One thing to learn though, biggest enemy of mankind, is mankind.

Gotta love Danny Boyle for keeping or pushing his style in this movie. Eventhough this movie tells you stories more verbally and visually compared to his other movies, you will still be able to see the story through alternative point of view.

Oh, Bridg, I really love that big panties of yours! Just like Cleaver. Hehehe.. Bridget Jones: the Edge of Reason was funny. Not so successfully funny as the first one, though. Some of the scenes were more slapstick funny than smart funny. Good job by fading out her diary in the beginning of the movie. By the way the day after I watched this movie, I waited for a bus with a man looks a lot like Mark Darcy. I mean Colin Firth. I wonder if he watched Bridget Jones. And no, by watching the movie, I didn't prove anything regarding the previous suggestion.

I think I will have a hard time not judging when watching the Phantom of the Opera. I mean, come on! How will they pull Paris, late 19th century, opera house, two guys love the same girl, more interesting than what Moulin Rouge! had already done. The other part is that this is another musical that I was so familiar with, especially the music. And watching them sometimes just waiting for certain songs to come out, instead of enjoying the movie.

But on the other hand, I am such a big fan of Andrew Lloyd Webber and can't wait to see his opera-esque musical theater. Eventhough it is in the package of a movie. And no, I haven't watched the theatre yet. Poor me. I'll try to discover the talents, however, which Emmy Rossum (Christine) on top of my list. And of course I would have my eyes on favorite character of mine. Meg Giry.
Where in the world have you been hiding?

Other than that, there are a lot of parts in the musical that I would like to confirm. I am most curious for the lines of
Sing once again with me, our strange duets..

and also
Anywhere, you go let me go to..

Just trying to see how Gerard Butler and Patrick Wilson stood up to the challenge.

So far, I heard that the only dubbed singing voice is Minnie Driver's, however I have a feeling that she did a great job in this role. Minnie Driver still sings, though. There was this new number titled Learn to be Lonely and it is sung by her. I think this new number is for the sake of awards nomination. Hehehe..

Oh, come on! Of all the people in the world, I thought of you the least to be the one who would say that. Hahhahahahah..

Well, I do know a little, I mean I don't want to assume something, but at least I really want to make it clear before I made up my mind. So, I know it's not a direct connection between them, but still, just kidding, want to tease u, that's all.

Now it's me who totally don't get it. I sense something in the closet about you. Hmmm.. Huahueuehauuhuha..
