For the long break (or what’s left of it), I visited the local haunt for pirated DVDs and bought these:

– Ethan Mao (Audience Award for best feature film at the Turin Lesbian & Gay Film Festival)
– Four Brothers (feat. Mark Wahlberg)
– Flight Plan (feat. Jodi Foster)
– Must Love Dogs (feat. John Cusack, Dermott Mulroney, and Diane Lane)
– The 40 Year Old Virgin (feat. Steve Carrell)
– The Longest Yard (feat. Adam Sandler and Chris Rock)
– The Phantom of the Opera (the Joel Schumacher movie adaptation)

Okay, okay, I am guilty of buying pirated DVDs. But I just couldn’t resist them,what with a measly retail price of 60-pesos (US$1.07) each. Whew! Sometimes, it’s amazing to find award-winning (read: Sundance, Cannes, and a slew of award-giving international film fests such as the one cited above) titles sharing selling space with the latest blockbusters, classics, foreign language films, and soon-to-be-released movies. I am telling you, even you would go crazy!

    I looove The Phantom of the Opera. The latest one , Joel Schumacher, was awful when it comes to singing. Gerald Butler especially. But I loooove him. and that movie was very interesting since it focused on the Phantom’s loss and jealousy a lot. :-) ooh, I wanna watch it again. only I wish I could afford my time….

    Have fun watching movies! and happy halloween!
