1. Notes on a Scandal (Kate Blanchet and Judy Dench) – juicy detail: Dench is a lesbian here. Something disturbing about that. hehe.

2. Breaking and Entering (Jude Law, Juliet Binoche) – juicy detail: An Anthony Minghella film.

3. Miss Potter (Renee Zellwegger and Ewan McGregor) – juicy detail: Both the actors name in a movie makes me want to watch it.

4. Blood Diamond (Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Connelly and Djimon Hounsou) – juicy detail: Leo with an accent that works. Plus Leo in a film, he never fails to deliver a great performance. So I am excited.

5. Curse of the Golden Flower (Gong Li and Chow Yun Fat) – Chinese martial arts. Plus directed by the one who did Hero and House of Flying Daggers. Whee!

6. The Good Shepherd (Matt Damon and Angelina Jolie) – juicy detail: Robert DeNiro directs. Again the actors, I love.

7. The Pursuit of Happyness (Will Smith and his son) – juicy detail: tear-jerker.

8. Babel (Brad Pitt, Kate Blanchett and Gael Garcia Bernal) – juicy detail: reminds me of Amorres Peros.

9. Dreamgirls (Beyonce, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Hudson) – juicy detail: singing, a lot of it. hehe

10. Little Miss Sunshine (Steve Carrell, Toni Collette) – juicy detail: have yet to read the story, but got nominated in lots of the award giving bodies, so it must be good.

11. Eragon (don’t know) – juciy detail: it looks interesting. But I want to read the book from which this was based on. Check out Dr. Gupta’s blog, he interviewed the guy who wrote the novel.

12. I’m leaving this for one of the MMFF movies, I guess that Juday movie may fit. But I don’t know, nothing catches my attention.

Much of the list, I saw at this site. http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1568455-1,00.html

Almost 2 years in law school and… December 3, 2006

Law school, law school. Never fails to get the awe-strucked look from many people when they hear that I am from that part of the world. On my part, it means a place I daily hope I should be in, and the place, that seems to be the obtsacle to the other things that I want to do in life. I feel like law school keeps me from using my potential. Or is it the one thing that I will be able to use my potential to the fullest? I really don’t know. I guess the main reason I’m still having second thoughts is the fact that I still am not able to earn any money to help out. This has always been an issue for me. I know very well that I can earn 15k minimum if I wanted to, like many of my psych barkada. But then, I’m in law school and everytime I apply for any job related to Psych, law becomes a liability. May be if I can earn and study at the same time, it will stop all my whining and bickering. But looking for a part-time job is a challenge with a schedule that changes frequently because of make-up classes and the like.

Maybe I’ll try looking for a job again for next semester. I will try my best to look for one in which law is an asset.

I cannot give up law, though. I may end up having to enroll in the evening section if I find a job. I may not be that passionate for law, but I do know it is something I have to do. Not because my dying mother told me to do so, but because I think it God’s will for me. Hard to explain but all things add up that prove God wants me to be in law school. From my experiences there and the things that I have learned in and out of the classroom. I just have to start living that belief of mine for it to be a fact, if that is possible. Though I know I have to be in law, I am not passionate about it. I think it is because of my refusal to know it, know it. I study it, but I ward off anything law related during the breaks that I have. There are are tons of literature and books on law, and many are quite fun to read, but I refused to get a hold of all these things. I made myself believe that they are boring. Probably some are, but I’m sure there are those that I would find interesting. I just have to get my head out of this lie I created.

Or maybe that lie would end up to be true. But the only way that I can prove both is to try it out. Try to start loving learning law and making it the thing that I have to do. HAVE to. If at the end of the semester, I still feel like it is a hindrance to all things that I want to do, I better think of a different career path. This could possibly mean that I wasted 2 years of my existence. Possibly. But I have to disagree. Finishing it or not will not matter for the past two years has taught me a lot things that made me better.
