who are you to talk about LIFE?

Life is HARD
Life is SHORT
Life is PAINFUL
Life is RICH
Life is PRECIOUS

Before I move on further,  let’s see the description below on what am gonna talkin’ about.

Movie Title : Precious (based on the novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire)

Genre : Drama, Adaptation & Teens

Director : Lee Daniels

Producers : Oprah Winfrey & Tyler Perry

Release Date : November 6th, 2009 (limited)

MPAA Rating : R for child abuse including sexual assault and pervasive language.

Casts : Mo’Nique , Paula Patton, Mariah Carey, Gabourey Sidibe, Sherri Shepherd

Synopsis : Clareece “Precious” Jones is an overweight, illiterate African-American teen in Harlem. Just as she’s about to give birth to her second child, Jones is accepted into an alternative school where a teacher helps her find a new path in her life.

Wow! It’s gonna be the very FIRST R rated movie I felt like to watch. Was it because our Grammy-winning diva (Mariah Carey) is starring in? Or was it the trailer was really mastered and mixed to be really impressive? Check the trailer out HERE

Well I hope this movie gonna break my lifetime perception over R rated movie — NONSENSE series of moving pictures, nothing to watch! And trust me, I do really feel it does changed my perception, for NOW. I’m waiting for this movie with full of anticipation. Anybody with me?

Original Source : Mariah Carey finds freedom being ‘imperfect’

December divas?!

Guys! I don’t know since when I’ve been so over-concern with my birth-month ; December that is. And realize it or not, all these my fave female singers ARE December borns too. Check ’em out.

Taylor Swift & Amy Lee (Evanescence) were born on December 13th *the closest to me*

Jordin Sparks was born on December 22nd

Dido is December 25th born

Hayley Williams (Paramore) is December 27th born

Dido was my evergreen fave singer since Here With Me era, while Sparks totally with me like a Tattoo since her debut and Swift, via Joe from JB 😉

Wow! Is it a coincidence?

p/s : My evergreen idol is Celine Dion (both in music and lifestyle, isn’t a December born) while Amy Lee is always like a resemblance of mine. Britney Spears was born on December 2nd but she isn’t really my fave singer *sorry Brit*

Too easily tear

I cried…. again. Not because someone shoot me with his hurting words neither someone broke my fragile heart. But it’s because our Sasha Fierce has turned to be Sasha Nice. It might be too blurry if I say it like this. Ok, read this now.

I love this song called ‘Halo’ by Beyonce since the very first I listened to it. I felt to have Beyonce’s third album (complete album, with all the bonus tracks) after I watched ‘If I Were A Boy’ music video on Yahoo! Music, so that’s where I know Halo, before the single bursts out on every radio charts. I thought I just love Ryan Tedder’s songs, but definitely it’s more than just that.  

Until I found the article on Yahoo! Music Blog citing about Beyonce singing this song in a very unique style on her tour in Sydney, Australia dedicating it to one little girl named Chelsea, which now suffering leukemia.

I would say I clicked on the link because I love the song, in the first place. But I was all wrong when I keep in tears everytime I push the ‘Replay’ button. Beyonce sounded so nice with her calm & soothing voice and this 2.45 minutes clip is full of heart-touching moments.

Have a watch. Are you with me guys? 😉

Lyrics :
Remember those walls I built
Well baby they’re tumbling down
And they didn’t even put up a fight
They didn’t even make a sound
I found a way to let you in
But I never really had a doubt
Standin’ in the light of your halo
I got my angel now

It’s like I’ve been awakened
Every rule I had you breakin’
It’s the risk that I’m takin’
I ain’t never gonna shut you out

Everywhere I’m lookin’ now
I’m surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you’re my saving grace

You’re everything I need and more
It’s written all over your face
Baby I can feel your halo
Pray it won’t fade away

I can feel your halo (halo) halo
I can see your halo (halo) halo
I can feel your halo (halo) halo
I can see your halo (halo) halo

Hit me like a ray of sun
Burning through my darkest night
You’re the only one that I want
Think I’m addicted to your light

I swore I’d never fall again
But this don’t even feel like falling
Gravity can’t forget
To pull me back to the ground again

Feels like I’ve been awakened
Every rule I had you breakin’
It’s the risk that I’m takin’
I’m never gonna shut you out

Everywhere I’m lookin’ now
I’m surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you’re my saving grace

You’re everything I need and more
It’s written all over your face
Baby I can feel your halo
Pray it won’t fade away

I can feel your halo (halo) halo
I can see your halo (halo) halo
I can feel your halo (halo) halo
I can see your halo (halo) halo
I can feel your halo (halo) halo
I can see your halo (halo) halo

Halo, halo

Everywhere I’m lookin’ now
I’m surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you’re my saving grace

You’re everything I need and more
It’s written all over your face
Baby I can feel your halo
Pray it won’t fade away

I can feel your halo (halo) halo
I can see your halo (halo) halo
I can feel your halo (halo) halo
I can see your halo (halo) halo
I can feel your halo (halo) halo
I can see your halo (halo) halo
I can feel your halo (halo) halo
I can see your halo (halo) halo

Life After You

Yeah it has the sense of Nickelback, to those who used to listen to Nickelback’s music – because Chad was a part of the songwriters. But that’s maybe the reason why I’m so in love with this song from the first time I heard it. It’s a sad song, I guess sad song fits me the most at all time. Enjoy!

Songtitle : Life After You
Artist :  Daughtry
Album : Leave This Town (2008)
Songwriters : Chris Daughtry, Brett James, Chad Kroeger, Joey Moi

Lyrics :

Ten miles from town and I just broke down
Spittin’ out smoke on the side of the road
I’m out here alone just tryin’ to get home
To tell you I was wrong but you already know

Believe me I won’t stop at nothin’
To see you so I’ve started runnin’

All that I’m after is a life full of laughter
As long as I’m laughin’ with you
I’m thinkin’ that all still matters is love ever after
After the life we’ve been through
‘Cause I know there’s no life after you

Last time we talked, the night that I walked
Burns like an iron in the back of my mind
I must’ve been high to say you and I
Weren’t meant to be and just wastin’ my time

Oh, why did I ever doubt you?
You know I would die here without you

All that I’m after is a life full of laughter
As long as I’m laughin’ with you
I’m thinkin’ that all still matters is love ever after
After the life we’ve been through
‘Cause I know there’s no life after you

You and I, right or wrong, there’s no other one
After this time I spent alone
It’s hard to believe that a man with sight could be so blind
Thinkin’ ’bout the better times, must’ve been outta my mind
So I’m runnin’ back to tell you

All that I’m after is a life full of laughter
Without you God knows what I’d do, yeah

All that I’m after is a life full of laughter
As long as I’m laughin’ with you
I’m thinkin’ that all still matters is love ever after
After the life we’ve been through
Know there’s no life after you

Know there’s no life after you
Know there’s no life after you
Know there’s no life after you
Know there’s no life after you
Know there’s no life after you
Know there’s no life after you
Know there’s no life after you, yeah

‘The Proposal’ and ‘Up’ Review

Movie Title : The Proposal

Released Date : June 2009

Starring : Sandra Bullock & Ryan Reynolds

Genre/Channel : Romantic Comedy

MPAA Rating: PG-13 for sexual content, nudity and language 
Details on Yahoo! Summer Movie Guide and Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

Synopsis/Summary of the story :

Book editor Maggie (Sandra Bullock) is everyone’s worst nightmare: ruthless, selfish, driven, and tactless. But when a problem with her Visa could potentially send her back to Canada and destroy her all-important career, she comes up with a solution on the spur of the moment: marry her much younger (but all-American) assistant (Ryan Reynolds). Unfortunately, the government is understandably suspicious, and so the two faux lovers must embark on a humiliating charade in order to make the marriage seem legitimate.

My Review :

I saw the trailer when I’m out to watch the other movie. At that time I thought, ‘O well, I’ll try to give a watch later’ but then this movie was far more beyond my expectation! I rarely choose romantic comedy movies these days because I think when they labelled so, it’s always more romantic than comedy. But this one is different. Everything balanced, and mix well together. There’s one more element that’s unwritten in the tagline : Family. You might be laughing out loud for the heart-tickling scenes, but your tears might fall out of notice for some heart-touching moments. I’d give it 70% comedy & the other 30% is all romantic & family. The movie is all realistic and touched the common & happening issue : residency & citizenship in United States. In this movie, Maggie’s visa was all the matter which brought the story to exists. In order to let herself staying in U.S much longer she has to marry Andrew. It won’t be a problem if the two really in a relationship, but what if they’re not? It already sounds unfair & cheating but it’s happening. And it’s not only for those who want U.S citizenship – Japanese citizenship too 😛 Maybe I should take Maggie as the role model if I want to stay in Japan for much longer time than I was allowed to, or if I’m about to be Japanese?!

Movie Title : Up

Release Date : May 2009

Voice Starring : Edward Asner & Jordan Nagai

Genre/Channel : Animation/Comedy Adventure/Kids,Family

MPAA Rating : PG for some peril & action

Details on Yahoo! Movies & Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

Synopsis/Summary of the story :

Carl Fredricksen (Edward Asner) spent his entire life dreaming of exploring the globe and experiencing life to its fullest. But at age 78, life seems to have passed him by, until a twist of fate and a persistent 8-year old Junior Wilderness Explorer named Russell (Jordan Nagai) gives him a new lease on life.

My Review :

The poster of the movie was the first caught my eye. I was like ‘What a cute boy! (Russel)’. Surely they have built the character beautifully made for view and that’s not the only of it. I was wondering this when I browsing the casts ; Russel was played by Jordan Nagai (voice). When I see ‘Nagai’ I thought he’s Japanese and I never knew it’s for real (half Japanese, actually). Take a look at photo below guys. I do not own a copyright for it and the using it here is nothing more than just sharing.

Up

 

 

 

 

 The character, the storyline, the animation & graphics, everything is perfect to me. All in one – happy, sad, action, adventure, love. A must, not to only kids, but everyone!

between real & myth

between real & myth

Uh huh. What’s up with E.V? Someone asked. O well. Am in flirting mode 😛 Since somebody that used to kill my dull days already left. Alone & lonesome never bothered me before but somehow they do this time. Gahhh. That’s killing me!

So before I got killed in this boredom, I better kill my time with something. What did I do all these days after back here in Japan? Don’t know what gets me back into the mood to watch Japanese dramas. I was so bored last week when I was in my homecountry – got nothing to do rather than to dig out the old drama collections I have saved on my hard disc. O yeah I got this one. The best drama I’ve ever seen… among the best, should I say. The ‘Nobuta wo Produce’. Yeah I know I watched the whole episodes for more than 10 times, ALREADY. And that’s the reason which drove me back to watch JDorama.

Don’t know why I’d easily immersed into the story if it’s Japanese drama. As if I’m acting in. No matter how ridiculous the idea created by the director/producer, no matter how unrealistic it could be but still… there must be at least one moral that awaits to be picked up in it *over exaggerating huh?*

So what I’m watching now? For now there are two. The ‘Buzzer Beat’ *I know almost everyone watching this now* and also the ‘Koishite Akuma ~ Vampire Boy ~’. The earlier with so REALISTIC life-drama & the scripts that NO IMAGINARY to be in our daily lives and the latter, which is BETWEEN THE REAL & THE MYTH – the Fantasy & Romance mixed up drama. Wonder why I suddenly get myself watching this drama…. *eyes rolling* 😛 Still in ‘vampire fever’ huh? Ha ha.

Ok ok. I actually got nothing to say, but my hands & fingers insisted to share this tune with ya guys. Click on the ‘The Vampire Boy’ picture to know what tune it is. I’m tuning to it non-stop now. Even when I’m typing this entry out. The sad, the lonesome, the soothing, the losing yourself to somewhere that you can’t even tell feeling *I know it sounds complicated, but I do feel it that way* …. everything mixed in. Hmmm… maybe that’s only me. Well. Give it a try if you want 😉

Knock me down

Back here guys! OK. I got tons of stories to share, though it short – 2 weeks, but too much things happened. So before I wrote them, let you guys slip ya eyes thru this lyrics first. I was introduced to this song originally by my junior, our Mira Chunnie 😛 Yeah you’re TOTALLY right! *damn it!* The lyrics KNOCKED me down 😛 ….coz I’m too supposed to be in the same boat with Keri…. I guess? 😉

Artist(s) : Keri Hilson feat. Kanye West, Ne-Yo
Songwriters : Marcella Araica, Kevin Cossom, Floyd Nathaniel Hills, Keri Hilson, Shaffer Smith, Kanye West
Album : In A Perfect World (2009)
Lyrics :

[K. Hilson]
Not again
Oh this ain’t supposed to happen to me

[K. West]
Keep rockin’ and keep knockin’
Whether you Louboutin it up or Reebok’n
You see the hate that they servin’ on a platter
So what we gonna have, dessert or disaster?

[K. Hilson]
I never thought I’d be in love like this
When I look at you my mind goes on a trip
Then you came in and knocked me on my face
Feels like I’m in a race but I’ve already won first place

I never thought I’d fall for you as hard as I did
You got me thinkin’ ’bout our life, a house and kids, yeah
Every morning I look at you and smile
’cause boy, you came around and you knocked me down
Knocked me down

[All/Chorus]
Sometimes love comes around and it knocks you down
Just get back up when it knocks you down, knocks you down
Sometimes love comes around and it knocks you down
Just get back up when it knocks you down, knocks you down

[Ne-Yo]
I never thought I’d hear myself say
Y’all go ahead, I think I’m gonna kick it with my girl today
I used to be a commander in chief of my pimp ship flyin’ high
‘Til I met this pretty little missile, shot me out of the sky

Hate to know I’m crashin’, don’t know how it happened
But I know it feels so damn good
Said if I could go back and make it happen faster
Don’t you know I would baby, if I could

Miss independent to the fullest
The load never too much, she helpin’ me pull it
She shot the bullet that ended that life
I swear to you the pimp in me just died tonight, girl

[All/Chorus]
Sometimes love comes around and it knocks you down
Just get back up when it knocks you down, knocks you down
Sometimes love comes around and it knocks you down
Just get back up when it knocks you down, knocks you down

[K. West]
Tell me now can you make it past your Caspers?
So we can finally fly off into NASA
You was always the cheerleader of my dreams
And seemed to only take the head of football teams

And I was the class clown that always kept you laughin’
We were never meant to be baby, we just happened
So please don’t mess up the trick
Hey young world I’m the new Slick Rick

They say I move too quick but we can’t let this moment pass us
Let the hour glass pass right into ashes
Let the wnd blow the ash right before my glasses
So I wrote this love letter right before my classes

How could a goddess ask someone that’s only average for advice
OMG you listen to that bitch? Whoa it’s me, baby, this is tragic
’cause we had it we was magic, I was flyin’, now I’m crashin’
This is bad, real bad Michael Jackson
Now I’m mad, real mad Joe Jackson
You should leave your boyfriend now, I’ma ask ’em

[K. Hilson]
Say you gotta take the good, the bad, happy and the sad
But when you bring a better future than I had in the past
’cause I don’t wanna make the same mistakes I did
I don’t wanna fall back on my face again

I’ll admit it, I was scared to answer love’s call
And if it hits better make it worth the first when it comes around

[All/Chorus]
Sometimes love comes around and it knocks you down
Just get back up when it knocks you down, knocks you down
Sometimes love comes around and it knocks you down
Just get back up when it knocks you down, knocks you down

[K. Hilson]
Won’t see it comin’ when it happens but when it happens
You’re gonna feel it let me tell you now
See when love comes it knocks you down
Won’t see it comin’ when it happens but when it happens
You’re gonna feel it let me tell you now
See when love comes it knocks you down, yeah
