book review: paper towns

another book from my favorite author, john green. paper towns is about  a boy who had been crushing on this girl forever. one night of a well cooked plan give him hope but alas, the girl disappeared, leaving a bread crumbs trail for the boy to follow.

paper towns is a really good read. i love the road trip part the most. i honestly don't think the story is really about Quentin's love towards Margo but it is more about the friendship in between Q, Ben and Radar and also acceptance in between Lacey and Ben. in this story, i think Lacey is braver than Margo. she loves Ben and she is not afraid to show it. she maybe was ditched from the popular crowd but she didn't wallow over it. she took it like a champ. hell, she literally sponsored the road trip. she wasn't afraid to be seen with the unpopular crowd and she cherish them like how people cherish their friends. she jumped head first into the road trip not because she is with Ben (clingy GF, yikes) but she wanted to find Margo. i think john green simply un'pigeonholed' Lacey to tell the world that we can be with anyone we like, we can be awesome in our own way. Lacey is also a symbol of breaking the peer pressure.

paper town make me reflect on how we see others and how we see ourselves. what we see in people probably not really what she/he is. it maybe just the surface of a deeper feeling.
i think we see people just like we see ourselves in mirrors. we don't really see beneath the skin that was showing. just like people, we don't really see them except for what they show us and for what we want to believe.

and i think Margo  Roth Spiegelman is a selfish bitch.

the biggest bitches of them all

everyone who had watched a teen flick/ girl romance surely well acquitted with the bitch of the story. the queen bee, the  mean girl. well today i'm gonna list down three of my favorite bitches in  movie/TV shows.

first, the evil manifestation of Regina George of Mean Girls. she's fabulous but she's evil. she is the bitch that got run over by the bus. her plan on revenge was not so cool but her wardrobe are to die for and her one liners are just simply put, stabbing. she single handedly caused a mayhem in highschool.  Regina is not someone you wanna cross. if hell bent on revenge, the burn book was milder compared to what she can craft.

my next favorite bitch is Courtney Shane from the movie  Jawbreaker (1999).  Courtney Alice Shayne is the most popular, dominant and mean girl of school and loves it! Nobody stands in her way of getting what she wants. But when she and her friends Marcie and Julie kill their friend Liz by mistake, they swear to hide it. But when the nerdy Fern witnesses the murder, Courtney is forced into transforming her into the beautiful Vylette as an composation of silencing the truth. now, how's that for a cold blooded bitch. courtney was well aware  of her chances to be the prom queen now that the gentle queen, Liz is dead. she can act all nonchalant and put a good "i-don't-do-anything-wrong" facade so well that it needed a good luck to bring her down.  

Still of Rose McGowan and Julie Benz in Jawbreaker

but the best bitch is Blair Waldorf. sassy one liners, beauty and wardrobe to die for, Blair is the mastermind of evil scheme. she is the Blair Bitch of  Upper East Side. she had power, money to execute and make such a damn good use of the Gossip Girl. (it really helps of Gossip girl favors you). this girl knows what she want and how to get it. she harnessed her headband to be her crown and only her can wear it better.  she didn't care about sinking her claws on her own best friend is if what it takes to have what she want. she is adorable yet dangerous. her evil plotting and scheming not only limit to the girls but also the boys. she is dreaming of becoming a powerful woman and she is on her way...

Yup, that's  three bitches are really good.... bitches!

movie review: the da vinci code

i watched the movies weeks ago but didn't manage to review it because my blog seem to go down or something. well the da vinci code the movie is okay because it gave the whole ideas in a much more realistic ways. however i am a bit dissapointed in the character sophie. in the book, sophie is brilliant and can crack the code by herself. even giving ideas to Landon, but the movie sophie is meek and, well she was always dumbfounded. i gonna give 3 out of 5 to this movie.
