aLgene said...

keb said...

Ahaha, really great movie! Thanks!

HOMER said...

Syempre naman GODFATHER ang the best dito! Damn! nang dahil sa movie na yan naging ultimate fan ako ni Al Pacino!

Pursuit of happyness- ayus din to! astig ang peformance ni will smith! galing din ng anak nya haha!!

Big Daddy- ayus din to basta Adam Sandler you wont go out at the cinema disappointed! laughtrip!

I AM SAM- the best si Sean Penn no doubt that he grabbed the Oscars for best actor here! Gusto ko yung court scene dito akala ko pa naman mapunta na sa kanya si Lucy, kundi lang dun sa interruption ng friend nya saying that Sam's statements are coming from the movie Kramer vs. Kramer which is ok din na movie haha!! Trip ko din to kasi yung soundtrack is mostly Beatles! astig!!

keb said...

Yeah Godfather is really really great and awesome! Well good for you Homer , Al Pacino is really good with this film. =)

I have only seen two of the films listed above, yung Father's Day and Father of the Bride. I'm not really a fan of Adam Sandler nor Eddie Murphy, kaya di ko madalas panoorin yung films nila. Yung ibang films naman, lumipas nang hindi ko man lang napapanood. haha!

Not necessarily a father-themed movie, pero gusto ko yung About a Boy. It wasn't his son, pero through the kid, he learned how to be mature, like a father to a son. I still like Nick Hornby's novel compared to the movie, though.

Great post you have here, Kebby. I've added you to my roll, by the way. :-D

gillboard said...
