movie marathon

The boyfriend brought home his office laptop one night and he showed me the list of movies his former officemate downloaded in the “makina” (what they call their lappies). The list contains some 40 titles and I couldn’t tell what kind of person the officemate is or was, judging from the movies she watched and haven’t watched (there are two folders: Napanood Na and, yes, Hindi Pa Napapanood. I remember the time when a friend heard my playlist when it was my laptop’s turn to play the “house music”, and she said she couldn’t tell my taste in music, to which I replied, I am not a die hard fan of music; in fact, I don’t download my own music, my brothers and boyfriend do. Anyway, these are the titles that I remember:

500 Days of Summer (I’ve watched this 10x long time ago)

Juno (watched this too long time ago)

-Pan’s Labyrinth (2006) (this too)

Devil Wears Prada (and this)

Serendipity (and this)

Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (now this was a surprise! it got Heath Ledger in it, plus Johnny Depp and Jude Law. whew. and, oh, it’s In Memory of Heath (RIP))

PS I Love You (2007)(when I watched this I couldn’t stop crying and laughing alternately!)

Then here are some that I wouldn’t take time to watch in cinemas (but I watched in the makina for the lack of something else to do on a weekend night):

17 Again

-Rebound

-I Know Who Killed Me (it’s intersting to watch Lindsay Lohan play a kind of neurotic or drugged character)

Confessions of a Shopaholic (2009) (ahoy! yes to shopping. no to over-spending!)

-Death At A Funeral (2010)

-Gokusen (just the first few minutes because I’ve watched the entire series)

And there were titles that I didn’t click to watch because I’m not in the mood or I’m not into them:

Naruto Shippuden

-Baise-moi (Rape me)

-From Paris With Love

-Number 23

-Aliens vs. Predator

-LOTR

-Chronicles of Narnia

-New Moon

etc.

You know, it’s nice to watch movies sometimes because it takes your mind off your troubles and worries.

I call this Lakwatcha of the Mind.
