After months of being too focused on work, I finally had my time yesterday. I have decided that my lunch break would be spent blissfully.
While savoring on my pinanyahang manok baon, I singled out the “Happening” from pcnimjsee movie selection. As husband’s favorite actor, I was brainwashed (somehow) that Mark Wahlberg is a fine actor. I’ve seen his Max Payne and I appreciated his acting thus the I thought the Happening would be a nice follow-up movie. It proved me wrong.
The happening was such a lame ecological thriller with nothing much to offer than make its characters run from an unknown menace and end up in peculiar places with odd individuals.
The unexplained and unseen phenomenon, until the end, remained unsolved. To add to the partly nerve-racking event, the Happening prompted people to kill themselves. This was after they’ve been exposed to the strong blow-of-winds and swaying-of-the-trees-and-grass effect.
The only firm answer the movie showed – nearing the end of the flick – however, was the resolved silent war between lead actor Elliot and his wife Alma. and this Alma, by the way, truly mesmerized me. Definitely not the acting , body or hair, but her blue orbs. It may be enough to at least claim that I had a delightful lunch break.
The wife was Zooey Deschannel, my girl crush from now on.
