Goodbye, Mr. Salinger

                                            J.D. Salinger, the famously reclusive author of “The Catcher in the Rye” died of natural cause last Wednesday in his New Hampshire home. Though he fell short of my top author’s list, his famous novel was an ephiffany to me.   Holden Caulfield was a hero during my highschool days.  His novel was an inspiration…

Love in the Time of Cholera, the Movie

                                                         While on leave yesterday, I had the chance to watch the screen adaptation of one of my favorite novel, Love in the Time of Cholera.  My husband chanced upon a dvd the other day and decided on impulse to buy it for me.  I guess he knew how much I love books-to-movies stuff.  Besides,…

harry potter & the half blood prince

                                                    We got to watch the much awaited HP series, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince yesterday.  All I can say is that Im left wanting for more…  I did not expect the ending to be so “bitin“.  I believe a great deal has been omitted in the film.  Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed…

OMG!  awesome!  i can’t wait to watch the film.  i specially loved jacob’s “transformation”.  its really way too cool.  and the edward-bella kiss was soo romantic.  i heard both stars tried to re-enact…

Home Movies

I relish moments like this.  A quiet house.  HUbby and the kids far deep in dreamland.  Having too much of my caffine fix, sleep evades me.  Good.  Now, I have the excuse of inviting my old friend in to keep me company–my trusty dvd player.  I realize I have some really good movies on hand…
