[Day 18] The Screen Was This Big.. (What was the last movie you saw in the theater?)

Should I cover my face while answering this question, I am somewhere between embarrassed and ashamed especially after I recalled when was the last time that I went to see a movie in an actual theater. But no, I refuse to be embarrassed, I have my reasons, definite and valid ones so please do not judge me, or you can, it’s your right (at this point, I know you have an idea how fickle I can be.)

Enough with the babble and back to the challenge, the question is what was the last movie that I saw in the theater. And since I did state that I refuse to be embarrassed about it, here’s my answer:

The last movie that I saw in the theater is The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 2 that was last November 16, 2012 right after I came back from Oman; it’s more than a year ago now. Is it surprising that I remembered the exact date? Well, it’s because the reason to go to the theater is more of a celebration rather than just plain see the last installment of the Twilight Saga. As I said I came back from Oman, that’s my point of exit, a needed one because it’s not possible to change visa status inside the country anymore.

And so as a celebration, I went out with my gay friends and both of them said they wanted to see a nekkid Jacob Black so off to see Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 2 we went, lo and behold, the kid is indeed nekkid but the scene was too fast for my liking and since we are in the United Arab Emirates, “some of the scenes” were removed, blame it on the censorship and yes, I blame the censorship and it is the main reason why I haven’t been watching anything in the theater lately. I was so not satisfied with what I watched.

Right, there are plenty of people that was not satisfied with the film but at least they saw the action, by that I mean the “steamy” bed scene and many more; they saw the complete film, I had to wait a good three months to watch a clear copy, a complete copy unlike the one that I saw in the theater. I can still remember my reaction when I finally watched the complete version, I felt robbed and I vowed not to watch a movie in the theater again not unless someone would treat me and indeed, I haven’t been to the theater since. I contented myself with watching online and sometimes downloading the movie itself if I really liked it and feel that I might watch it again. It may take sometime before I could watch it but at least it’s complete.

And that is the last movie that I watched in the theater. How about you, what was the last movie you saw in the theater?)

      Not in my world. Lol! Haven’t seen it yet, I’m waaaay behind with the movies, the last movie I watched was kick ass 2 and that was a week ago. Korean dramas are taking most of my free time.

      • matthewexeter says:

        I have never seen a Korean drama. A girl I once knew was obsessed with Korea as she decided to study there. She could never let things go, which was a shame.

        • Erl says:

          Most of them are good and me watching those dramas is kinda making real life difficult. ahahahahaha! i kinda know the feeling of that girl you know, if I could, I would have gone all out and go to Korea but sadly, I still have responsibilities that are tying me down to this place. In time, that’s on my bucket list, I will go to Korea.

          • matthewexeter says:

            Well should I have the funds and the supportive woman I could go one day. As long as there are no weird insects that crawl in your eyeballs or dangorous lizards or whatever

          • Erl says:

            Oh, supportive woman.. LOL! weird insects, in Korea? I don’t think so. Oh, and what is a weird insect? I kinda know a lot of bugs cause I’ve seen most of it in my country. 😀

          • matthewexeter says:

            Oh like the ones you get on tv in really hot countrys that move into peoples bodies and things

          • Erl says:

            Oh, well South Korea is not that hot. Well maybe during summer, but right now it’s snowing in there. They have 4 seasons unlike my country.

          • matthewexeter says:

            We have four seasons too, what is your country? Are you of a royal family or government official?

          • Erl says:

            I wish.. Read my about page to find out.. 😀

          • matthewexeter says:

            ok then

          • matthewexeter says:

            I assumed you were american for some reason

          • Erl says:

            whoa, really? Nope, proud to be Asian. If i can change it I would still like to be Asian, not from the Philippines though but you already have an idea from where. 😀

          • matthewexeter says:

            Oh Korea I would assume, at least while you are watching Korean soaps. Everyone in my fammily I have ever met have been white and English. I am not particullarly patriotic, or the oposite.

          • Erl says:

            yep, pretty obvious right? To be honest I’m actually studying their language, self study and I kinda familiarized myself with Hangul already. hmmm, well am not that patriotic too. Family-wise well, I do have some cousins and distant relatives who married someone/somebody from another country but those are quite distant relatives so, almost doesn’t count.

          • matthewexeter says:

            oh actually there is one acception to that

          • matthewexeter says:

            oh and two cousins who were born in new zealand actually

          • Erl says:

            nice, but still, English is your mother tongue, unlike me who studied the language. It’s my third language actually, I speak Tagalog and a Native dialect then English, 50% Arabic and some other.

          • matthewexeter says:

            I have never even heard of Tagalog, clearly you have been able to embrace your intense intellect.

          • Erl says:

            Tagalog or Filipino is the national language of the Philippines. Yup, I’m embracing it, with arms wide open. 🙂

          • matthewexeter says:

            Ah cool, my mates married to a Philipino girl. I went to a birthday party and felt more at home in a room full of Philipino women than I did with the english guys in the living room

          • Erl says:

            Awww, that’s sweet! If there’s something I am proud about us Filipinos we are naturally welcoming and warm. Always smiling no matter how miserable we feel. And of course the respect to the elderly.

          • matthewexeter says:

            We were drunk and wearing clown wigs and overly massive sunglasses

          • Erl says:

            I can imagine it. By chance were there a karaoke? We love that thing! I don’t know any Filipino who doesn’t sing. LOL

          • matthewexeter says:

            There was going to be, although I think there was not anyone sober or technical enough to plug it in

          • Erl says:

            Hmmm, too bad.. It could have been awesome!

          • matthewexeter says:

            :0)
