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.
(Movie review is after the jump…)
Cool. Tron Legacy will be re-released in IMAX 3D next week. I’ve always wanted to see it in that format because I’ve seen it before twice but only on regular 3D but then my friends told me that it was wicked in IMAX 3D. So, yea, I kinda regretted my decision. It’s ok, I just bought my tickets online for Tuesday. As of now, I think I’ll own the entire cinema on that day ‘cause nobody’s reserved a seat yet aside from me.
So earlier this afternoon on our way to the lake, I was driving and my dad was sitting beside me. And out-of-nowhere, I started this conversation:
Me: Final Harry Potter na in 2 weeks.
Daddy: Ok, manunuod ka?
Me: Syempre. Baka sa Saturday on the week it was released.
Daddy: Saan naman? Sino kasama mo?
Me: Ewan. Baka ako lang, kakatamad mag-yaya. Sa IMAX.
Daddy: Sa MOA pa? Ang layo naman. Gastos sa pamasahe.
Me: Nope, may bubuksan na raw sa Southmall sa 14.
Daddy: Southmall? Sa Las Pinas?
Me: Oo. Malapit na lang. Mura lang sa pamasahe or sa gas kung papadala mo sa akin ang van.
Daddy: Edi Sunday na lang, 17. Baka sumama kami kung walang schedule.
Me: Eh? Okay.
Well, obviously, di kami madalas mag-usap ni daddy. LOL. BTW, it was nice to know that they will come with me in seeing the final Harry Potter movie. Si daddy kasi, most of the time, it was he who pays for the ticket. Although ang tanda kong last movie na pinanuod namin magkasama ay yung Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. So yun, another thing that makes it better is because it was I who planned on buying our tickets for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 in IMAX 3D. Plano ko, i-treat sila pero pag sumama sila, baka si daddy mang-treat. Pero, I don’t know kung manlilibre pa rin siya sa 17. Hopefully, manlibre nga. LOL But if not, ok lang, tuloy ang plano.
Meh. My mom and dad will be doing something next Sunday so our “family bonding” would be cancelled, rather moved on July where we’ll see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 in IMAX. However, I will still see Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides in IMAX 3D maybe tomorrow or on Tuesday after our Final Exams. And yes, as usual, I would be alone, FOREVER ALONE.
I guess I just have to wait for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows pt 1.
