august rush

i don't want to sound so exaggerated but this movie is just so brilliant. i was actually cursing ala claudine barretto on most parts of the film most especially on its last 4 minutes. and almost felt sad that it has actually ended. oh well...

this is my second keri russell film for the week. the waitress which i saw a couple of days ago was also really heartwarming. i'm beginning to discover how lovely keri russell is.

august rush is a highly musical film marrying classical and rock and bearing some streetbeat protege of a son. true to its title, watching it does give you that kind of rush, some high brought on not only by the power of music but also with how love is able to transcend time and distances apart.
and yeah, i've to say freddie highmore is just becoming a handsome fine young man.

"You never quit on your music. No matter what happens. Cuz anytime something bad happens to you, that's the one place you can escape to and just let it go. I learned it the hard way. And anyway, look at me. Nothing bad's gonna happen. You gotta have a little faith. "


  1. If my gf would ask me to watch these Keri Russell movies, I'd probably just make an excuse to do something else, like fix stuff, or mow the lawn (if we have a lawn). I try to be a sensitive guy, but this is just too much for me. O.O

    Or I'd ask her to watch 300. There was a love story in there as well anyway. *snicker*

  2. i love 300!

    haha i know what you mean which is why i said i just discovered her quite lately with this films but you know, it won't hurt to take a peek. this film is great especially if you're into music. ;)

  3. quote ko lang to from a pex post. =)

    "i was lucky to watch this sa PAL flight sing to manila..... naiyak ako sa seat ko sa sobrang ganda ng movie. (pero hindi ko pinahalata sa ibang passengers, malaki kasi akong tao e) when i got home i kissed my children and wife and realized how wonderful life is pag you are with your family" *jack42

  4. Yeah, I like movies that make you appreciate the important things in life. A movie that had a similar effect on me was Meet Joe Black. After watching it, I was more appreciative of things. So, perhaps when I get into the mood for sappy movies, I might... as you put it, take a peek at this one. ;p
