Film Review: Just Friends (2005)

I know every single filmmaker and production team works really hard to get a movie rolling in theaters and I respect them for their art. So I try my best to like every movie that comes my way. And so I burn, I pine and I perish. Who am I kidding? This movie, okay, it’s not crap. Maybe it’s just not the time of the year to watch this and at 2am for that. But I didn’t like it. I don’t hate it, hate is such a strong word but I didn’t like it either. It felt so-so. I was like, SO MUCH FOR SLEEPING AT 3AM JUST TO WATCH THIS FREAKIN’ FILM. I thought it’s a good, must-watch romcom. And it’s even Christmas-themed! Oh gosh, maybe I’ll just watch this again when I’m feeling more lenient so it can save its face in the near future. Oh well, stans of this movie, leave this review now.

updates on my life?

Guys, if you want an updated blog or whatever, go and seek my tumblr and fuckyeahokadamasaki. I’m more active there. Active means I post there more often than here. My current and forever it boy is JGL (Joseph Gordon-Levitt if you dunno) and my tumblr is so full of him, it will burst in the seams. If a blog has seams. HAHA! So there. I haven’t Kpopped in months. I told myself that I will Kpop again when Big Bang makes its comeback. Much long-awaited comeback. Or if something really really really good or interesting comes. But as of now, na-ah. I’ve been downloading and watching movies, catching up on things I should have watched but not since I’m such a Korean and Japanese fanatic in the past years. I have lots of series to marathon but I haven’t got the time. It’s a long weekend for me now but my family went to lots of gatherings and birthdays and did many stuff so unfortunately, I wasn’t able to watch anything. Except maybe for a movie or two. Ugh, when my semestral break comes, movies and series, BE READY. September is the month where the tv series that I’m watching are coming back for the next season. Glee, Cougar Town, Vampire Diaries, How I Met Your Mother, etc. So I’ll be super busy I think. HAHA! :))

I’m blaming Sarah for this. I borrowed her iPod and I played this song and woah, trip down memory lane! I super love this song ever since! I dunno why it’s not even in my laptop! I’m singing this the whole daaaaay. I just love this song, so much. It’s such a feel-good song! ❤ forever!
