Hello everyone, for those who are constant readers or visitors of my blog, I apologize if you weren’t able to view it yesterday, which says
“This blog is open to invited readers only
It doesn't look like you have been invited to read this blog. If you think this is a mistake, you might want to contact the blog author and request an invitation.”
But it’s all fixed now! Anyway, It’s been a week already and I promised to write something about the 2 movies we watched: X – Men: First class and Kung fu Panda 2. For non comic fans or purists of the comic based movie X – men, some liked it, some don’t. Personally, I loved it, it shows the beginning of friendship between Professor X and Magneto. And the root of rage from Magneto’s past. For purists, there were inconsistencies, as explained here in my friend’s blog.
Kung fu Panda 2, I loved the first movie, but watching the sequel, it was not as impressive as I expected it to be. And I found that the awesome 5 fighters were overshadowed by Po. Story (in my opinion) revolves around Po, who he is, where he came from. I was content that the question was answered. Based on how the movie ended, why do I feel there’s a part 3 in store for us?!
In essence, both movie was about family. I was morosely touched with Magneto’s past, specially the part when Professor X read his memory during their training. Tears welled in my eyes, trying hard for M not to see it. LOL~ And Po was finally at Inner piece, finding out where he came from and what happened to his family. Adopted. Nonetheless, he loves his dad.
Where am I going with this you ask? After watching (any movie) M and I love talking, debating about it and he asked a question that I wasn’t even able to answer myself. It was that day I realized that M knows me better than I know myself. He asked me this question: “What made the X-men movie work for you than Kung fu panda? Since I know you can relate more to kung fu panda.” Yes, I am adopted, but unlike Po, I don’t know who my real parents are, why they gave me away. This was never an issue to me really, since I knew I was adopted at a very young age. But like all adopted children, we ask the same question eventually. But I never dared ask my mom about it. Going back to M’s question, I told him, “I don’t know, I just love the story and his bond with his mom.” I know he was observing me, then he says, “I think I know why, because you’ve always longed for a mother’s love.” I hate to admit it, but he is right. If you’ve watched the movie I hope that you know what I’m talking about. Magneto’s mom was very loving and caring. I won’t divulge more since this is a private matter for me, but I am happy to share with you bits of pieces of my life, aside from the make-up, and usual topics I talk about here in my blog.
I’ve ran out of words and starting to get emotional right now, haha. Anyway, thanks for taking time to read. I love you all~
