Day 5: A fictional character you’d like to spend the day with.
Andrew Clark, John Bender, Claire Standish, Allison Reynolds, Brian Johnson. (The Breakfast Club, 1985)
Sorry for cheating. It supposed to be “A FICTIONAL CHARACTER”, but I like to spend the day with these creeps, living young, wild, and free. Though trying to be free at some point. I’m so in love with this movie.
Day 3: Your favourite male fictional character from a book.
Lestat de Lioncourt (Vampire Chronicles, Anne Rice)
Since I was a kid, I really love vampires and vampire stories. It fascinates me. And I do prefer the Victorian Vampires with fangs, they’re so elegant. And Lestat is the first vampire that I fell in love with.
It’s the movie that eerily foreshadows the horrific massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School. We Need To Talk About Kevin was released last year, but got very little attention.
It tells the story of a disturbed child who massacres students at his high school, but with a bow and arrow.
And just as Adam Lanza killed his mother before carrying out the mass shooting in Newtown, Kevin in the movie first kills his father and sister and leaves their bodies for his mother to find.
Kevin, played by an actor named Ezra Miller, even bears a striking resemblance to Adam Lanza.
And we’re learning more what may have driven 20-year-old Lanza to kill. He lived like a recluse in the windowless basement of his mother’s sprawling $1.4 million dollar house. He spent much of his time alone playing violent video games. His favorite: Call of Duty.
High school teacher Richard Novia is one of the few people who got through to him.
Novia said, “Adam was shy, very quiet, very nice boy, intellectual. Withdrawn most often. Hard to pull out. Hard to interact with.”
Lanza’s parents seperated in 2001 after 20 years of marriage. Divorce papers obtained by INSIDE EDITION show that Nancy Lanza got the house and generous alimony of about $290,000 a year. Peter Lanza also agreed to pay for Adam’s medical bills, his college education and buy him a car.
The divorce was apparently amicable, but Adam took the break-up very hard. He stopped speaking to both his father, a G.E. executive, and his older brother Ryan, in 2010.
"Nancy was a wonderful parent. The kind of parent who is deeply involved in the children’s lives. She was interactive in everything they did," said Novia.
But there is also condemnation of Nancy’s parenting skills today from a columnist on The Daily Beast website for teaching her emotionally troubled son to shoot.
"Teaching a young man like that to be a marksman strikes me as pretty questionable parenting," wrote Michael Tomasky.
Lanza had Asperger’s syndrome. Experts say years of isolation behind those walls may have driven him further over the edge.
Spider-Man 3 is my most favourite among the three other Spider-Man films staring Tobey Maguire. It’s so melancholic—- it made me cry even though I’ve already watched it several times. Plus this OST from Snow Patrol. It attacks me to the heart.
It’s irreplaceable, I should say. Every installment connects, but with new flavors.
When I was in grade school, when I wrote my favourite actor on a slumbook, it’s always Dolphy. For many reasons why, I grow up watching Home Along da Riles, and some of his films, and I must admit, that comedy then, is a lot different and funnier than the comedy now. I don’t know why, but perhaps because of the same reason that writers were born—- comedians were born too, not made.
I enjoyed every single film of him that I have watched, even the only one I’ve watched in theatre, Nobody, nobody, but Juan. It was a good film actually, but my cousin didn’t enjoy it. I do(Promise)
I’m not in the John en Marsha Generation, because I wasn’t even born then. But I’ve seen a film installment of it, and it was great too. Undoubtedly, Mang Dolphy is one heck of a talented person. From theatre to grayscale films to colored to TV, generation to generation, absolutely, he’s sick! The Philippine’s Charlie Chaplin, I should say.
Thank you for all the laughter you’ve brought to us. And definitely, heaven is now the happiest place with you there. You will be remembered with smiles on our faces.
More than a National Artist, you are definitely a National Treasure.
Awesome awesome Fairly Odd Movie Grow Up Timmy Turner. Drake Bell is the cutest 23 yea-old 5th grader. It was a short film and I want to see more characters, but then, it was awesome. At last, Timmy Turner is older than me again. YES! Lol. I love the characters, especially the non-cartoon Cracker character. The voice, damn awesome, it’s same as the cartoon’s voice.
Fairly Odd Parents is one of my favorites Nicktoons— and yes my most fave, next is Invader Zim.
If you find the idea of a zombie invasion absurd, wait until you feast your eyes on the newest, most-awaited, and one-of-a-kind movie this generation.
Award-winning local film-makers behind the critically-acclaimed movies Magnifico, Anak, Endo and Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros came out with what could possibly be an epic scare into one hilarious movie.
Director-Writer Jade Castro, Producer-Writer Raymond Lee, and Writer Michiko Yamamoto once again took a stab at a new film genre which gave birth to Zombadings 1: Patayin sa Shokot si Remington. “(This is) a coming of age story; a coming together of friends and family story and a coming of Zombadings story,” explains Castro.
I love cats, pandas, Peter Pan, Flynn Rider, Green Day, Kate Winslet, fruits,sweaters, Jasmine Green Tea, George Harrison, the moon, the stars, Reading, Sketching, Daydreaming, Imagining, Be Out of Reality for a While.
Caught between trying to live my life and trying to run from it.
I own a tongue that tastes so sweet
So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.
