Just Another Film Junkie

WE’VE finally reached the final chapter of what is one of the best fantasy series since Star Wars (the first original trilogy) and the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

And with this (second part of the) final chapter, the series comes full circle with an ending that is such a magical bang.

Because this was a final chapter, the series did not shy away from going into dark places. One must expect that some main characters may not survive long enough to see the end.

The frequently asked question about the movie probably is: “Will I enjoy and understand the movie without having watched the previous Harry Potter movies?”

You have to at least understand the basic storyline of the movie; who Voldemort is; what happened to Harry as a child; what happened to his parents; who Dumbledore, Snape, or the other characters are.

Sure, you should at least have some degree of understanding of these characters so that you will understand the movie. But even if you don’t have to understand the movie, I’m sure the overall action-packed awesomeness of the movie will still be immensely enjoyable to those unfamiliar with the storyline, and will most probably drive them to look for those other movies.

Because the forces of good and evil finally face off to seal the fate of the other, it is indeed expected, and was definitely delivered how this movie is action packed and filled with epic battle scenes.

Pacquiao’s look-alike visits Manila anew

MANILA, Philippines – Boxing champion Manny Pacquiao’s look-alike is back in Manila.

Filipino-American Allan Rivera Manuel arrived at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Pasay on Thursday evening to visit his idol, Sarangani Rep. Manny Pacquiao.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Manuel said he made the effort to visit Pacquiao because he knows that the latter is really busy with his commitments as a boxer and representative of Sarangani.

“Mabuhay, Philippines! Thank you for the love and support. Maraming salamat, kapamilya,” he said.
