Tony Stark for President!

I wonder if superheroes would make good world leaders as well? 

If you read my addendum, I vowed to watch Iron Man 2 again because of the failure that is SM Baguio Cinema. After a groundbreakingly epic sleepover last night with my high school friends, I went home drowsy but determined to watch it with Zoe. We managed to catch the 1:40PM screening at SM.  

Although the first movie still comes out on top over this sequel, it certainly did not disappoint me either. I’ve always liked Robert Downey Jr. (way back during his Ally McBeal days), and Iron Man has always been one of my favorite Marvel characters as well. Mickey Rourke was just a really great Whiplash, and now consider myself a fan of him as well.My only complaint of the movie — and this I already pointed out during my first time watching it) is that I found the final fight scene between Iron Man, War Machine (Rhodes) and Whiplash — a bit bitin. It needed just a bit more length and oomph, especially since Rourke was being built up as being super intelligent and super strong throughout the movie. But well, that’s just me.  




BTW, do you want more Mickey Rourke as well as other high profile action stars? Watch THIS trailer of the movie, The Expendables!  

And who else got excited by that Thor bit at the end? XD I WANT AVENGERS!  


On a more serious note, today is the National Elections here in the Philippines. I am a first time voter, and I never knew until now how much you can really get into this thing. I’ve never been very politically involved or aware of all national issues, but this is certainly one of those times when one must really tune into everything that’s happening in the country. What every voter will put down on that ballot a few hours from now will evidently determine what life here in our country will be like for the next six years.  

I’m not really much for enforcing/convincing people who to vote for, especially people who I know are more than capable to think for themselves. That’s mainly the reason why I haven’t been blogging anything about elections or candidates or whatever. All I know is, whoever YOU vote for tomorrow, make sure you really believe in him/her. Make sure that you’re voting for him/her because you know he/she is best for our country. And not for anything else.  

May those who will be elected inspire hope in the Filipinos at this time of great need just like Iron Man and other superheroes inspire hope in mankind during times of turmoil. 

I wish our country the best of luck tomorrow. And with that being said, I’m off to sleep. We vote on the first hour tomorrow at our precint, and I want to make sure I’m awake enough to shade those darn bilogs (na hugis itlog) right.  

Just to give you an idea of who I'm voting for.

Allie has seen many a dust bunny in her lifetime, most of them in her dorm room. She is often mistaken as a 13-year old, further intensified by her weird fashion choices that mostly involve cutesy patootsie rings, colorful knee high socks, and ribbons and bows in her hair. She dreams of waking up one day and finding herself as a character in Star Wars. Preferably a jedi. With a purple lightsaber.
