I was planning to have the day off, but I caught fever in several days ago. So I pushed the celebration to weekend. My plans are only treating my family and friends a treat. I originally wanted to post things I love about blogging, but I changed the theme to be more related to birthday. Can’t decide if I want to categorize it to movie scenes or anything, so how about random things (more like a trivia) for this day and my birth year.

  • Happy Birthday, Drew Barrymore! She has the same birthday as me. Aged 38 this day, she’s one of Hollywood’s sweet heart, have a career breakthrough in E.T. Extra Terrestrial and one of the child celebrity who passed her early dark years. And I also just found out that her godfather is Stephen Spielberg. Such a lucky gal
  • Hit the local cinemas today is Wong Kar-wai’s The Grandmasters. What a coincidence! I sure love In The Mood For Love.
  • Sweet episode of How I Met Your Mother, is on Lily’s birthday. Oh how I wish I have a husband like Marshall :)

Happy B-Day! ~ Random Things About Birthday & Movies

  • Last year, I watched and reviewed Amadeus who was released in my birth year. It won Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor in Oscar.
  • Today is also George Washington‘s birthday
  • Birthday scene on patio from the movie Chocolat (2000). I certainly loved the warm atmosphere and the garden background.

  • Happy birthday also for Kyle Maclachlan & Julie Walters
  • Opening this week until today on IMDB : Snitch, Dark Skies, Inescapable, Bless Me, Ultima, and Kai po che!
  • One of my work/best friend surprised me with a cake two times. Once in my first year, and the second she failed to surprised me because I already gone out. Luckily, she found me and succeeded to brought me my cake. Such a sweet girl! I’ll never forget that.
  • One of the best birthday scene in a movie is Sleeping Beauty

  • There’s a movie called 1984 released in 1956 and 1984. The summary : George Orwell’s novel of a totalitarian future society in which a man whose daily work is rewriting history tries to rebel by falling in love.
  • Top grossing film in US in 1984 was Ghostbusters. No wonder I fond the comic so much. While the second and third was Beverly Hills Cop and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
  • Julie & Julia (2009) Birthday dinner scene was sweet. Especially how Julia’s husband said sweet words to her.

  • One of my favorite birthday gift is Roman Holiday (1954) DVD
  • In the same year, The Motion Picture Association of America institutes the PG-13 rating, as a response to violent movies such as Gremlins and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
  • I also loved Bridget Jones’ Diary fight scene, where they break through a restaurant where someone’s having a birthday. Both Hugh Grant and Colin Firth sing along Happy Birthday before they continue their fighting. I couldn’t find the video, but it was sure one of the most hilarious birthday scene in a movie.

  • Released also in 1984, is Karate Kid and Romancing The Stone, the two movies I enjoyed a lot
  • I was once given an aquarium with couple of fish in it, and it didn’t last for long. Consider it as a wrong gift for me. But it’s the thought that counts
  • If you ask me what movie I’d watch today or tomorrow, I’m planning to see Flight and perhaps if I have more time, Zero Dark Thirty. I just realized while I’m writing this, that I only haven’t seen Zero Dark Thirty among the Best Picture category in Oscar. Somewhere between cool and not cool, because I’ve been doing less blogging and watching movies lately.
