Annie with Alvy at the park, mocking people who pass by

“ANNIE HALL” is not a film entirely about Annie. The film is about Alvy Singer, a man in his forties and after failing two marriages, he is already up for one.

What’s so great about Alvy Singer?

Not so much. He is not entirely handsome but, yes, you might find him attractive. He has a self-centered personality, and a bit talkative about psychoanalysis, which I find doubtful since he keeps talking about this theories that somehow just pulled random out of his sleeves. (All I know about psychoanalysis is that it came from Freud and all about Freud is that sex is an essential part of life.) He is not tall. He doesn’t have a great personality but, I won’t deny it, he is funny.  He is also too rational. One more thing, he is played by Woody Allen.

Annie Hall, on the other hand, is a beautiful, submissive woman and, like Allen, has humor. Allen meets her while playing tennis, and from then on they keep striking on wits. (more…)

IN THE flirty world out there, you have to battle your way through perfumes, dresses, shoes and other glamorous things that would lure a lovely man into your cage. But as painful as it is, age is a valuable asset and being in your thirties is as hard as you can get. In this age bracket, we meet Bridget Jones, 32, who seeks a functional relationship and tries to improve herself based on her New Year’s Resolution.

An eager fan of Jane Austen, Helen Fielding outlined her novel “Bridget Jone’s Diary” with that of “Pride and Prejudice.” We see the characters of Mr. Wickham as Daniel Cleaver, a carefree and selfish man and Mr. Darcy as Mark Darcy, a highly educated and respectable man. In the story, the two has also unsettled accounts and later in the film they find themselves hitting each other in the streets, which would lead to a background music of “It’s raining men”.

As for Elizabeth Bennet’s character, she is no longer shy and constrained woman. Things have changed. Bridget is battling not the economic problems but couple problems. She has been teased over and over again by her relatives, mostly by her mother, and every year they try to set something up to her. She is so happy when she gets laid that she calls herself as a “sex goddess”. (more…)

Last week, my sister wanted to borrow my flash drive. She craved to get a copy of a Korean TV Series. I refused, knowing that she had her own flash drive and besides one of my living legacy is don’t lend personal things, doing so would break my self-made promise. If you have guessed that my decision was final, you would have been wrong. How could I resist on persistent pleading. Of course not. But little did I know, that was the most right decision I have ever made, at least at the time of this writing.

Shin Min Ah and Lee Seung Gi

The Korean TV Series was “My Girlfriend is a Gumiho.” I saw it aired on a local channel, they always do, they can’t put up a good show and so they borrow from other countries and this has been the tradition of local channels, competing for who has to get the latest hit TV Series.

After I got the flash drive, some days later, I was about to delete the files in one button, all of them were already highlighted, waiting to meet the recycle bin. If you have guessed that my decision was final, then again you would have been wrong. Something about me wants to check out this series. I opened the first episode and moved the time bar to at least 10 minutes ahead. I was laughing, seeing the crumpled face of the protagonist, Cha Dae Wong, about to be sent to a military camp. I knew that although the series made me laugh, it would not get me hook to the story and so I watched some more and waited how would I react on the succeeding scenes. After I finished the episode, which was surprising since I only desired to see the main characters, I watched some more.

Miho is happy with her new name
