Feng Shui and other updates
I caught Feng Shui starring Kris Aquino last night with my co-trainees. And I never expected it to scare me like that. I've never been that scared since, well, Ringu. The TV was on the whole time last night because every small sound, my sister moving on her bed, the wind and the trees outside, EVERY SOUND, would make me tense up and imagine the worst possible things. I kept my eyes closed and forced myself to think of different things that will hopefully enable me to sleep finally.

But enought about that, the movie was surprisingly good (obviously). Cinematography was amazing but I can't say the same for the editing. Whether it was deliberate or not, I think the editing could use a bit more polishing. The script was ok naman but the lines were too unnatural for me. (Ironically, the scriptwriter was my professor in scriptwriting last summer. Hehe. Does that say something about what he taught us?) The sound editing was also good.

But all of cannot make up for the fact that they made one really terrible and HUGE MISTAKE: when they cast Kris Aquino to play the lead role. Although that may have been deliberate since people in the audience were grateful for the "distraction". Everybody was laughing so hard whenever Kris appeared on screen. I wonder what Fr. Nick Cruz is saying about Kris in this movie? I'm guessing that short stint of an acting workshop in New York did not do wonders for Kris Aquino. I wonder why they chose her for the lead role? It's not for her acting abilities, that's for sure!

But all in all, it's still a good movie. It's not spectacular but it's still good. Just a note of advice: Try to watch it during daylight. I think it's less scary that way. Or maybe I'm wrong. Either way, Kris Aquino's acting will still leave you rolling on the floor, laughing your ass off. Hehe.


On a side note: I'm finally finished with all the training for Mocha Blends! Finally!
