Toy Story 3 Movie Review

OMG! It's my new favorite movie for 2010! Toy Story 3 is sooo good! It was the first thing on my mind when I wake up this morning! If Toy Story 2 is a bigger hit compare to the first Toy movie, the 3rd Toy Story will be the biggest! This will be a big hit at the box office for sure. The movie is now showing on almost all Philippine cinemas nationwide in IMAX 3D , Digital 3D and regular format. I've watched this in IMAX 3D at SM North EDSA on it's premiere night, but I don't see something special. So I'll recommend you just watch it on it's regular format.

Toy Story 3: They're Back!

“ Toy Story 3 ” welcomes Woody (voice of Tom Hanks ), Buzz (voice of Tim Allen) and the whole gang back to the big screen as Andy prepares to depart for college and his loyal toys find themselves in…day care!

Vote For Ivan Dorschner (Ivan Dorsner) in PBB Teen Clash of 2010

I've been following Pinoy Big Brother since it begin airing back in 2005. From the regular season, the celebrity edition and the teen edition, which is my favorite. Although the show is bombarded with a lot of criticism, it still has a lot of followers. Evident in the recent TV ratings nationwide and it is also the only Pinoy reality show that entered the Top 10 trending topics on for several times. The current season dubbed as Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Clash of 2010 is also one of my favorite PBB seasons of all time. Originally I'm rooting for Fretzie but she turn out just a wall flower all through out the season. Then I turned my attention to Tricia , which is only PBB housemate that become a trending topic on Twitter on the night of her birthday. Since she is evicted last week from the Big Brother house, my bet is now Ivan Dorschner (Ivan Dorsner) .

'The Karate Kid' Movie Review

When I heard about The Karate Kid, I said to myself, "What?! another remake!" We must admit it, almost all movie remakes sucks, only a few really managed to pull it off. The Karate Kid is definitely a classic movie, especially for us cousins. We grew up mimicking his moves known as the crane kick/bicycle kick. To do that, you must put both arms to your sides, raise your arms, and collapses your wrists over your head. Then, simultaneously raise your left knee up to about stomach level. Then wait for your opponent to come forward, then you leaps off your right foot, simultaneously dropping your left foot to the ground, and kicks your opponent with your right foot. LOL! I tried to look for details of that film online, and I'm surprised that the first film is released back in 1984 (I'm not yet born on that year) My cousin is really a huge fan of this movie saga, he has all the copy from I to III. Sadly, he's now in a place we called heaven, so he can't watch thi

Jaden Smith & Jackie Chan in 'The Karate Kid'

In Columbia Pictures’ The Karate Kid , 12-year-old Dre Parker ( Jaden Smith ) could have been the most popular kid in Detroit, but his mother’s (Taraji P. Henson) career takes them both to China. Dre has a hard time making friends at first but he does make a connection with his classmate Mei Ying – and the feeling is mutual – until cultural differences make such a friendship impossible. Even worse, Dre makes an enemy of the class bully, Cheng. Dre knows only a little karate, and in the land of kung fu, Cheng puts “the karate kid” on the floor with ease. Feeling alone in a foreign land, Dre has no friends to turn to except the maintenance man, named Mr. Han ( Jackie Chan ).
