Dear Diary,

I’ve watched three new movies last week and yesterday.  One was a local Filipino Romantic movie, which I was able to drag my husband to watch with me.  I don’t often watch Filipino movies (I probably watch one movie a year, at most 2 I think , last year…)  but I wanted to watch It Takes a Man and a Woman, because I found the trailer funny.  And was really glad that I enjoyed the movie, it had its funny moments and might have gone overboard with some cheesy love scenes, but no so much that it ruined the whole thing.

Then we watched a James Mcavoy movie called Trance.  I do not want to talk about it.  I did not like it.  Yes, I understood the plot.  If not for James’ dreamy eyes, I would not even mention that I watched the movie… Some people liked it, but I just thought it was too slow.  So moving on.

We watched Dark Skies yesterday.  It’s a thriller about a family experiencing strange events in their life and discovering that those behind it are not from earth.  I’m a big fan of alien shows and movies (although, not necessarily believing in it), I got addicted to the X-Files when I think I was just 13 and was fascinated by shows that share similar themes. I didn’t know that Dark Skies was about aliens though and was pleasantly surprised to find that this horror movie was not about monsters or anything paranormal but from extraterrestrial beings…

A lot of jumpy moments due mainly because of the music and sound effects that give a big bang when it wants to scare you.  And if you happened to have been in the cinema during the time I was watching, then I admit that it was me that screamed during that scene.  Yes, that was my shrill high pitched scream that you heard…



STARRING: Keri Russell, Dakota Goyo, Josh Hamilton (not the baseball player),

If you like thrillers and horror movies then I recommend that you watch this movie in the cinemas.  There’s nothing like watching horror in the cinemas instead of at home with people who don’t take the movie seriously and ruin the fun and thrill of jumping and screaming at just the right moments.
