1 week of school ended and I've already watched 2 movies with my dad :D
What a great way to start a new year.

First movie - Cirque Du Freak: Vampire's Assistant.
I was a fan of Darren Shan's vampire saga series,
And sorta made my dad read all 12 books as well.
We wanted to see the movie,
Even though it might not be a good one.

Indeed, it wasn't any amazing movie.
Had to go all the way to Mid Valley to catch this movie,
Since it wasn't available in IOI Mall.

Didn't like Darren,
But Mr. Crepsley turned out to be not bad.
At first I wasn't too happy with this actor portraying Mr. Crepsley,
Turned out to be good after all.

Next was Sherlock Holmes!

I loved the whole settings,
The British accents,
The fashion at that point of time.
Plot wise, not bad.
A lot of twist and turns,
The way all detective stories should be.

Makes me wanna grab some Sherlock Holmes books.

Oh, and here's a list of movies I've watched during the holidays.
Just in case I'm not gonna write anything,
I'll just list them here ... for ... fun.

Whoa, 18 movies o_o
8/18 starring Tom Hanks, lol.
Amazing actor.

Quite a few of them are 'classics', in the top 250 IMDb list.
My favourite among them would probably be ... a lot of them. D:

'The Ugly Truth' was ... okay. Average

I didn't like 'Gamer'.

'I Love You, Man' was ... okay? I really don't know what to say about this.

'My Sister's Keeper' was tear-jerking.

'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatball' was ... well, a cartoon.

'You've Got Mail' was light and nice. If it wasn't for that cruise trip I wouldn't have watched so many movies, and I think all of this started with this movie. But watching this a second time might be boring.

'Saving Private Ryan' was NICE, one would wanna watch again.

'Cast Away' could be my favourite, another one that I would wanna watch again. Wilsonnnn~

'Pulp Fiction' was too ... deep for me? It's like Grand Theft Auto in real life, with the cut scenes and everything. Not that I don't understand the movie, but I just don't find black humour that amazing.

'Love Happens' ... not much love happening. Was more like a story of a man finding himself with help from another girl.

'Die Hard', niceeee. Classic action movie I guess.

'Sleepless in Seattle', same main actor and actress as You've Got Mail. I preferred 'You've Got Mail' much more because 'Sleepless in Seattle' seemed stupid to me.

'Forrest Gump'! It's totally like 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button', except for the growing younger part, because it was narrative and mainly about flash backs. I might wanna watch this a second time ... maybe.

'Philadelphia', not bad. Much on the reality side. Worldly issue or something like that. Inspiring I guess.

If only the holidays were longer. Sigh.
