It is Friday (yeah!) and this is one of the days that I’ve been actually waiting for since last year. Yes people, today is the day The Amazing Spiderman is released in the Philippines.
Luckily, I only have one class, a 1 PM to 2:30 PM class. I actually thought of missing that class because of the movie schedule that I reserved. I purchased one ticket (I am such a forever alone guy, I know) for the 4 PM screening of The Amazing Spiderman at IMAX Mall of Asia. I feared that I might not make it in time if I’ll attend my class. Good thing, the traffic was not that bad during that time so I kinda arrived on time for the movie. By the way, if you are wondering why I was so scared of the travelling time, well, that’s because I still come all the way from Laguna.
Oh well. I arrived at the theatre at around 4:05. I expected the movie to have started but hey, I forgot that I am in the Philippines, and as always, there will always be the effect of Filipino Time. I still got the time to buy my favorite milk tea from Gong Cha. So to say, the movie that was supposed to start at 4 PM started at around 4:20 PM.
The cinema is full! What would you expect? It is the first day of the one of the most anticipated movies of the year. I liked the vibe of this audience that I am with. So, the lights started to dim and man, The Dark Knight Rises trailer was freaking amazing in IMAX! I literally felt shivers down my spine! That just totally multiplied my excitement for that movie by epic proportions.
