#Lyndons5Review || Wonder Woman

wonder_woman_poster_2

7/10

  1. I Enjoyed Batman vs Superman when Gal Gadot appeared as Wonder Woman. That scene was so intense, and that intensity was continued in this movie.
  2. The beach war scene is something to look forward to. It was DC’s best fight scene so far. The finale fight scene was so-so though.
  3. It’s a mix of comedy, drama, action, suspense with a heart. Not to mention, it’s a period movie.
  4. The only thing that bothers me when it comes to origin movies, there’s a tendency for the movie to be boring. There were few sequences that made me want to get a remote control and fast-forward those scenes.
  5. This is so far the most action-packed and exciting DC Cinematic Universe movie that can somehow match the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Additional Note : Marvel should now start to conceptualize their first female superhero movie. Someone from the X-Men perhaps?

Dear Define Don,

Hello! I find it weird that I am actually asking this to you. I am Gino 27 years old and currently working as a Med rep in Ortigas. Please don’t publish my real name. I’ve been having these questions for about years now. It all started when I became friends with Dustin, another med rep from our company. Most of the people from our area are aware that Dustin is not a straight guy. It’s just that no one would dare to ask him about his sexuality. We knew each other for 5 years already since we were 1 wave away from each other. He’s from Wave 12 and I’m from Wave 11. We would normally see each other during area meetings or outings. Just last 2015, we attended a seminar together, he talked to me and that started our close friendship. Suddenly, he’ll message me on Facebook, sometimes he will use the office email to have a conversation with me. We would have lunch together if we’re in the same area. This went on for months, then there’s this one night our area had a party and we all got drunk. He asked me if I could join him in his car to sleep for a bit. Inside the car, we talked about our personal lives. I’ve shared to him the stories of my family and my last relationship, he was just listening. When I thought he was asleep, I told him I like him. At first he didn’t say anything. I repeat it and he said “Yeah, I know…”. He looked at me then I kissed him, he didn’t stop me then we went back to the party. We didn’t talk for 4 days after that kissing thing. When we started taking again, it’s as if nothing happened. I would try to ignore his messages and calls but he’s really persistent. Honestly, I could tell with his actions that he likes me too but what do you think is the reason why he can’t say it? What do you think is the problem with Dustin? This is really weird but I can’t wait for your thoughts on this.

– Gino

Hey Gino! Thank you for sharing your story. Just so you know, your story is the first ever #AskLyndon entry. It’s 2 months late though, I haven’t checked my email until today. Sorry.

Ok, this is a very difficult situation to be in. I mean, it’s like reading between not so clear lines. Good thing and Bad thing, let’s start with the good thing.

We should always trust our instincts because most of the time we are correct. So if you feel that Dustin likes you too, there’s a big possibility that he really likes you. The bad thing is that there is a small percentage that he is just a “pa-fall” guy, there are lots of people like them out there. If you are to ask me, Yes, I can see that he likes you also. There might be some things that stopping him to admit his feelings for you. First, you’ve mentioned that he is a closet gay. That is one of the most stressful feelings ever. He might be having troubles with his family and coming out of the closet will just add more stress. Second, he might be the type of person who is not yet ready to commit. He might be enjoying his journey being single. Third, He might experienced a bad past relationship and he is just being careful this time. Fourth, he might be in a relationship now and he just wants to be friends with you. And lastly, he might just be waiting for the right time. Remember: Timing is everything.

Maybe you can try these things.

  • ASK. There are lots of questions running in your mind and Dustin’s answers will give your speculations a rest. This is the best thing to do.
  • WAIT. You can just wait for him to confess his feelings for you. So if you’re not in a hurry, you have all the time in the world. You’ll never know it might be worth the wait.
  • SAY GOODBYE. Move on and and forget your feelings for him. There are lots of fishes in the sea. Lol. 😀 On a serious note, you might be just wasting your time waiting for nothing.

At the end of the day, it’s still you who will decide what to do in this episode of your life. If ever you guys will end up together I know you would be happy, if not, then learn from this experience and make sure not to commit the same mistake again in the future.

So there, I hope I’ve helped you with your question and not confuse you even more. By the way, I picked a song for you. 🙂 This song suits your story.

Always follow your heart,

D.

Hi Guys! If you’re following me on Instagram, maybe you’ve noticed that I posted something about #Ask Lyndon last April 2017 (For those who are not yet following me, what are you waiting for? Follow : @lyndonmartin both on Instagram and Twitter).

You might be thinking what got in to me and I opened my Blog for this kind of  stuff. Oh well, ever since I was a kid, when people go to me and ask for my idea, opinion or even solution from the most simple to the most complex things, there’s a different sense of fulfillment within me. You might find it weird but i feel it’s my way of touching their lives (cricket sound). Lol.

Anyway, this portion of my blog is basically for me to answer all your questions. It could be the trend, food, destination, tips in traveling or personal problems/issues. it could be a one question, one answer type or the “LOVE NOTES ala Joe D’ Mango” type. You can even ask me the most non-sense question and I will try to answer everything.

Looking forward to help you,

#Lyndons5Review || Beauty and the Beast (2017)

beauty-and-beast-2017-3

9.5/10

  1. At first, I thought doing a live action of my favorite Disney animated film is not a good idea but this movie didn’t disappoint me at all. It is very magical.
  2. When I heard Emma Watson turned down La La Land, I was like “What was she thinking?”, but her first appearance as Belle, Emma is Belle. Hermione Granger is gone.
  3. Luke Evans is so effective as Gaston. You will hate him and his narcissist ways. The character was highlighted more in this movie than in the animated film.
  4. I must admit that there are scenes that I’ve pictured on my mind that I didn’t see but the execution in the film was entertaining.
  5. There are just some things better left untouched, just like the theme song. The original version is way better than the version of Ari and John Legend but yeah, it’s 2017, so giving it an updated beat is alright, it’s not bad either. The songs will surely bring you back to your childhood days.

8/10
  1. The cinematography was done nicely. Imagine the lahar, grass field and beach as backdrop.
  2. The 3 main characters are all good. Khalil is very subtle, Jameson is an effective D-Bag and Ethan is good for a newbie.
  3. The incorporation of the 90’s era added coolness to the film (certified #90sKid here).
  4. A lot of people can definitely relate to this film. First friend, first crush, first love and first sexual awakening (BEAT THAT!).
  5. This is not your usual coming-of-age movie, it was surprisingly dark. A possible sequel won’t do any harm but also okay if there will be none.

#Lyndons5Review || Logan

9/10

  1. The movie is awesome gruesome. Wolverine’s fight scene will force you to cover your eyes but you will remove it in less than a second.
  2. It’s Twilight meets Hunger Games meets X-Men kind of film.
  3. Dafne Keen who played Laura is the perfect choice for the role. She reminded me of Taylor Momsen in Gossip Girl Season 1.
  4. The family arc in the film is very heartwarming. You will feel how Charles loves Logan and how Logan loves Charles and also Logan’s love for laura.
  5. This is the Wolverine movie that we are all waiting for. I can’t imagine it having a different ending.
