Dear Friends & Families,
Today, I was off from work and I spend the whole day in my room. Doing what? well like always finding some movies that I had that I won’t get the chance to watch when my dear wendy is here. Is not that she won’t let me see or something but I just don’t want her asking many questions and don’t understand the movie after finishing it. Skip skip..
The first movie that I watch is Butterfly Effect starring Ashton Kutcher and Amy Smart. I don’t know what the movie talk about at the beginning. I saw the title I thought is some of the Horror or Thriller movie. I thought like the Playstation game Crimson Butterfly. The movie really make me glue to my seat and I will pause the movie to cook my lunch or visit the Gents’. The movie talking about a kid that always suffer blackout when he is kid and after the blackout he can’t remember what he has done. His mother send him to the hospital for a check up but the result come out negative and the doctor said it might be stress that he want to meet up his dad.
When he is in his teenage years they did something bad that to a nearby house that cost two life and his childhood friend suffer trauma watching the thing happen. His mum was washing the dishes until she heard the news regarding explosion or the nearby neighbour and his mum knew that it might the problem that cost all this and he quickly sold off the house and move to the city. While they’re are ready to go his childhood sweetheart ran to see him but her mum start the truck and go. While they’re leaving he wrote a note and show to his childhood sweetheart that “I’ll come back for you”. Now he is in college years and he is leaving with a Gothic fat boy and studying worm and insect regarding the human memory.
When one of his date took out his journal and ask him to read for her. As while he is reading suddenly the words moves and transfer him to the time when he wrote the journals and start to remember his past. The story moves on… That’s from me now.. go get a copy of DVD of this movie “Butterfly Effect”. Good to watch. I like how he sacrifice for her sweatheart when and the final part. I read there is different endings so get a DVD now..
Next, after a touch at my heart and I watch another movie called “Marley & Me”. I read my friend blog that she touches by the book and the movie. I hope I never get it wrong. I think is the book that touches her so I know this must be a sad story. I’m prepare myself that not to roll down my tears. The movie start that both couple just get married and it was having a snow storm at Michigan and their car broke down. They moved to Florida and take up the job as reporter at different newspaper company. One of them at the Palm Beach Post and the other at South Florida Sun-Sentinel. His wife was quickly get promoted to have her own front-page column and while John Grogan just write obituary and two paragraph in a column.
John senses Jenny contemplating motherhood and his buddy ask him to adopt a dog and see are they ready to raise a family. They picked a dog and Jenny have to fly out station for work and John need to pick their dog up. While in the car John turn on one of Bob Marley songs and named the dog as Marley. Marley is not like any ordinary dog and his weakness is thunderstorm. Later John got promotion to has his own column in the newspaper and he didn’t know what to write about so he start to write about the life of Marley and them living together. By writing this his column gain a big popularity and soon the newspaper are selling. John & Jenny was so happy that Jenny is pregnant of their first child but it was so sad that Jenny loses their baby. Later, after coming back from their honeymoon at Ireland and Jenny got pregnant and this time she give birth to healthy baby boy named “Patrick”.
The movie continues the life of them till they got a little daughter and Marley is getting older. Marley showing sign of arthritis and deafness. Once Marley got gastric dilatation volvulus and almost kill him and he fight back. The doctor told John if this happen the second time even surgery can help. John told the doctor Marley is not an ordinary dog but a fighter. BUT nobody can change God’s plan and accept the fact that everyone die at the old age. Marley suffer the second time of gastric and not a surgery can help. The doctor put Marley to sleep in peace and John beside him to send him away. Later John brought Marley back to their home and buried Marley beneath a tree in front of their yard. The whole family pay their last respect to Marley who is one of their family.
The movie is quite boring at the middle but when at the back you start to feel the pity to Marley when he is old and going to die. Marley will always wait John & Jenny kids at the front yard to come back from school. It let’s me think about my pet dog…. my tears follow… if you like the book I think you can give this movie a try.
