I coulda sworn that the trailer for the movie Salt has been shown in the cinemas since last year -- has anyone else noticed this? Finally, though, it's being released this week. I wonder what all that delay about? Sheesh.
Starring: Angelina Jolie, Liev Schreiber, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Andre Braugher
Synopsis: As a CIA officer, Evelyn Salt (Jolie) swore an oath to duty, honor and country. Her loyalty will be tested when a defector accuses her of being a Russian spy. Salt goes on the run, using all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative to elude capture. Salt's efforts to prove her innocence only serve to cast doubt on her motives, as the hunt to uncover the truth behind her identity continues and the question remains: "Who Is Salt?"--© Sony

If you're getting bored of wearing the same old black leggings and plain stockings, have you ever considered wearing printed ones? These cute little stockings and tights by Les Queues de Sardines (of M + O -- I think it's a French brand) would certainly brighten up any wardrobe.
The ones below are the ones I'd pick from their Spring/Summer 2010 collection:
Autumn/Winter 2009 --
I love that Cumulonimbus pair! So cute! XD
Spring/Summer 2009 --
Wouldn't you also like a lovely pair of toothy knees? XD
Unfortunately, there are ones that I'd love to have but aren't available anymore, like these ones below --
And there are some that are just strange. I already have my leg veins showing, thankyouverymuch. No need to get those stockings for me! The pair with the ants crawling up the legs is also a bit too weird for my taste.
You can see the rest of their collections and how to get them on their website.
A few weeks ago, CNN TalkAsia interviewed Imelda Marcos. I just want to quote what she said about one particular question...
TalkAsia: You speak about how you and your husband, you built hospitals, you tried to improve the quality of life of people and yet, you are perhaps better known for your shoe collection and your extravagant, over the top and what appears to be irresponsible spending. That's what people associate with your name. How does that feel?
Imelda: It is never irresponsible spending when it is beauty. There is no extravagant in beauty.
Under normal circumstances, I might agree with that statement. HOWEVER, extravagant spending on beauty should involve YOUR OWN MONEY (this may or may not include your parents' money -- usually willingly given. haha!) and not money from credit cards and government funds.
Since The Departed, I don't believe I had seen another Leonardo DiCaprio movie properly. I think that's going to change with Inception. This week's movie choices are between that and Disney's The Sorcerer's Apprentice, but I think I'll make a pass on Nicholas Cage for the meantime.
Plus, I have a soft spot for Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Ellen Page -- so Inception, it is.
Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard

Pinoys can't have enough of Gary V and Martin N, so here's another As1 concert. *yawn*

This is not much of a comeback. I've only posted twice since I announced it, but who the heck cares? Not me, obviously.
So I'm back to making movie announcements this week and I've picked an unremarkable week to do it too. Only one new movie is being released and it's Predators. I'll just say three things why you should go see it -- producer is Robert Rodriguez (Sin City 1 &2, Grindhouse), Topher Grace in action persona and Adrian Brody's nose. If those things didn't convince you, I don't know what will.
Starring: Adrian Brody, Topher Grace, Alice Braga, Danny Trejo
Synopsis: Several of Earth's most highly trained killers are transported to a distant world where they become prey to a group of alien hunters. Facing a monstrous threat armed with weapons beyond their imagining, these elite warriors must band together in order to survive.
