"When destiny calls you, you must be strong..."

If you had a chance to change your fate, would you? 


Been a while since I did a movie review. Also been a while since I watched a good Disney authentic creation. Disney's cartoon is more than just drawings, it's a masterpiece. That's why it's almost legendary... Toy Story, Tarzan, Lion King, you name it. But as technology grew, human adjusted very well to it, that's why I think kids mature faster than they're supposed to, don't you think? Cartoons are getting even more complicated, I mean, if you're a 5 year-old, I don't think you'll get the moral of UP like a 20 year-old would receive. All in all, Disney never fails. 


When I saw the trailer of this movie, I thought to myself that it wasn't interesting, at all. But I was proven wrong. Trailers can be tricky, they can make us underrate the movie, or it can make us expect too much. This is one of those movies you'll want to watch with your whole family, cousins, little sisters and brothers, or as I call it, the 'get-together' movie. 


What I like about Disney is that it's always catching up to what's new or what is the recent issue, they have a way of putting it into the movie. For instance, when news came swirling that princesses have always been white, Disney rise to the challenge and make an African-American princess in The Princess and The Frog. With weight issues that even girls at an early age have been dealing with, Brave told the story about a princess that weighed just about how much an average teenage girl should weigh. She is a little chubby and had a curvy body, but still is beautiful regardless. 


The movie's setting is the medieval era, taken place at a Scottish kingdom, it still gives this magical, 'fairytale' feel that any children (or adults... Don't worry) can relate to. I think this movie gives children hope and make them dream, which is good. Kids need that, they need to believe in something. The soundtrack is very Disney, and by that, I mean it as a compliment. Come on, it's Disney, do I really have to name the classic songs that were born from its movies? 


It's a movie that makes you smile. You wanna know why? Because you can relate to it. It tells us about how we are our own master of our destiny. And even though destiny is written for us, before us, every little chances that we take, every mistakes that we make, at the end of the day, we are where we're meant to be. Things will fall into where they're supposed to be.

"...alive but barely breathing"


Just in case you're wondering why I haven't blogged in a while, it's because there's so many things in my mind that I can't even pour it out one by one on a post, I might have to make a new blog for all of my thoughts. Everyone has gone through those days where they feel a mixed up emotion that they can't describe. It's angst and excitement and disappointment, all wrapped into one. So that's exactly why I put the title as "Alive but Barely Breathing," it's because my blog is still very much active, I just don't know how to put it into words one by one. Nowadays every time I write, I write and just save it, just to pour my heart out and not share it to the world. Some of them are too honest and sincere that it scares me sometimes, like how you feel when you're about to confess the truth to someone, something that bothers you for a while... But then you just kept it to yourself, because you know that truth hurts too. And if it's someone you love, even if it's the truth- the cold hard truth- will you still tell them; fully realizing that it can hurt them? I don't wanna risk it, but I don't think I can bear the strain of keeping it to myself anymore.

Pain

Pain is good. Pain is an indication that you're alive. Pain causes you to grow. The finest gold needs to go through fire again and again. Even the most beautiful flower go through a lot of rain. Pain makes you more mature. It makes you understand other people better. It's a way of learning things, but in a more cruel way, I suppose? But then again, you learn more from pain than from pleasure, don't you? That's why we remember other people's mistakes more than their good deeds. Why? Simply because you learn from pain. You learn from being let down, loss, cheating, betrayal and disappointments. Don't let pain get the best of you, but let it bring out the best in you. The simplest way to be happy is to stay away from people who make you unhappy. But that's almost impossible, right? Because most people who make you unhappy are the ones you love and care about the most.
