Keep Calm and Watch Movies

What movie made you fall in love with watching movies?

Art imitates life.  Oscar Wilde would probably pelt me with rotten tomatoes, as I’m not really in a philosophical mood right now, so I’ll just hastily say that this means that art is a depiction of what real life is about.

Movies, I’d like to think, are a form of art.  Movies are not so much about being a form of escape from reality, as they are about imitating life.  Life is about self-expression, and movies- as a form of art- provide an avenue for that.

I’m one who has always been a sucker for this form of art.  And the movie which started it all, which made me fall in love with watching movies, was E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.  It warms my heart to this very day whenever I think about this sci-fi movie about a lonely boy who befriends an alien stranded on earth.

Since E.T. has served as a springboard for my movie addiction, I knew that I simply must have an app which feeds this “cinematic hunger”, so to speak.  Lo and behold, I stumbled upon GMovies which they say is the “ultimate pocket app for your movie fix”- and for good reason!

GMovies, the first of its kind here in the Philippines, is a free app powered by Globe Telecom which acts as a one-stop shop for movie tickets.  Here, you can view showtimes, book the best seats, and buy movie tickets without breaking a sweat.  Long lines at the cinema ticket counter are now a thing of the past.

Even with an unassuming movie like E.T., art does imitate life.  Although the existence of aliens is still debatable, what E.T. as a movie imitates about life is the poignant friendship the boy had with an alien. If that’s not what life is all about, I don’t know what is.

How about you?  What movie made you fall in love with watching movies?

  1. The Sound of Music!

  2. Books are my escape… I even had a dream last night about what was going to happen next in the book I was reading. Now it’s double fun to keep on reading, because I can’t wait to see if my dream and the book end up with the same story line :)

  3. For me it was Grease. I loved it so, and I still do. :)

  4. Marley and Me.

  5. I had to come back and tell you that E.T. was on TV last night. I saw the last 80% of it, finally! My 6yr old was mesmerized! :)
