Time Travel Again? Nooooo

Holidays, don't we all love holidays? This time I have more than two blessed weeks of holidays because of Hari Raya! A few days ago I watched "13 Going On 30", "17 Again", "Monsters Vs. Aliens" and "Monsters, Inc" on the computer, heheh.

"13 Going On 30" was very sweet because I learnt to not take friends for granted, and "17 Again" was funny and heart-warming because I learnt to not take your loved ones for granted. These two movies are similar, I supppose, but their methods of "time travelling" are opposite; one 13-year-old girl goes forward in time to see how her life would be at 30 years old, whereas the other is a 40-year-old man becoming his 17-year-old self, but still in the same time zone, which would make more sense because they don't change the past, per se, but the present and future. Time is such an abstract thing, like a whole dimension, that's why I find movies that go to the past to change something, do not follow the rules. Like "Back To The Future", or "Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban", or "Lost"... anyway, those were two sweet movies that you should watch. The other two monster movies were... funny and animated but nothing learnt there. XD (by the way, Zac Efron with the long curly hair looked like Rafael Nadal heheheh)

On the other hand, I watched "UP" last week. It was so beautifully done; I think it is one of my favourite movies because it has such deep themes despite its illogical sequence of events. Must watch!

Happy holidays to myself...!!
