08/08/08

I’ve been busy this past few days on PTC sites. Joining every single one of them, well actually not all but quite a lot. So perhaps everybody is busy writing about the Beijing Olympics or the 08/08/08 which was believed to be a lucky day. I kinda believed it myself so I bet on the 6/45 lotto, and luckily I almost won! I only needed 4 numbers to win the jackpot. I got the the number 4 and 19, my Ate Lizas Birthday and mine.
Well the real reason I wrote this is because that I watched Mr. Deeds of Adam Sandler and Winona Ryder, well its about a sweet-natured, small-town guy inherits $40 billion from his deceased uncle. And Winonah as a television tabloid reporter, poses as an innocent small-town girl to do an exposé on Deeds. Deeds fall in love with her and they live happily ever after. Well theres more in between but I dare not give the specifics. Just watch the movie…
And the reason why I wrote this is that I remembered the 1985 movie, one of my favorites of all times is Brewsters millions. Brewster is a minor league baseball player. Unknown to him, he had a (recently deceased) rich relative. In order to test if Brewster knows the value of money, he is given the task of disposing of $30m in 30 days. Brewster isn’t allowed to have any assets to show for the $30m or waste the money in any way. If successful, Brewster gets to inherit $300m. The biggest problem of all however, is that Brewster can’t tell anyone what he’s doing, so everyone thinks he’s crazy. Add to this the fact that if he fails, two scheming trustees will get their hands on the money, Brewster’s task is not an easy one.
Well they almost have the same plot but noy do I love them both. Here’s Brewsters Millions in Youtube

Most famous rat/mouse


1. Mickey Mouse – is an Academy Award-winning comic animal cartoon character who has become an icon for The Walt Disney Company. He was created in 1928 by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks and voiced by Walt Disney. The Walt Disney Company celebrates his birth as November 18, 1928 upon the release of Steamboat Willie.[2] The anthropomorphic mouse has evolved from being simply a character in animated cartoons and comic strips to become one of the most recognizable symbols in the world.

2. Jerry from the famous tandem Tom and Jerry. They are an Academy Award-winning animated cat (Tom) and mouse (Jerry) team who formed the basis of a successful series of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer theatrical short subjects created, written and directed by animators William Hanna and Joseph Barbera (later of Hanna-Barbera fame). One hundred and fourteen Tom and Jerry cartoons were produced by the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer cartoon studio in Hollywood from 1940 until 1957, when the animation unit was closed down.

3. Speedy Gonzales “the fastest mouse in all Mexico”, is an animated cartoon mouse from the Warner Brothers Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of cartoons.

the bucket list

This would be my first time writing about a movie, and I don’t even know if it’s showing now or if it’s not. Just finished watching it in my ever reliable DVD player, ofcourse knowing me and my budget the dvd is fake. And so… so what… I aint the only one you know.

Well that’s not the reason why I wrote this, I just want to recommend this movie to you. Yes you, the one who is reading this right now.  Ofcourse I am pertaining to you, who else would I be talking to. It is a story of friendship, life and how to accept death in a different perspective. I dare not tell you the plot of the story for it will ruin your curiousness, but I tell you this, it is a moving story and surely you would love it as I did. Have I told you that it stars two of my fave actors, Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. So why are you still there? Go on and watch this movie… a must see.
