One of my most favorite composer..can you guess who he is? See the answer in my number 1 my most favorite score below.

After original songs, now I would like to share my most favorite original score. Basically, score is orchestrate or arrange (a piece of music), typically for a specified instrument or instruments. Just like original songs, I also collect some good scores from movies which I often play it during my jogging. Sometimes I prefer to listen score than song. Here we are my collection of original score from motion pictures in order of most played.

The Top 25 Coolest Original Songs from Motion Pictures

Clearly I don’t follow an update of new popular song. I never know whose song is happening in every week or every month. Shortly, I have no any idea about song.

Clearly I’m a movie freak. Some good movies have some good songs too or we are familiar to call it as a soundtrack. Some song is too good in representing the story of the film itself. When I listen to this kind of song, the incredible moments within the movie just fill my mind for a moment.  And it feels different for me and brings something to remember and imagine when I do that. Sometimes I don’t have any idea who the singer is or how their face is. Their voice and the story of the film, those are what matter for me. It seems I should watch the movie first in order to be able to enjoy the song. Ah..whatever

So when I talk about music with my friends, we definitely don’t get it each other. Because I just know about soundtrack meanwhile my friends know a lot about the popular song which I don’t.

Right now I would like to share some original songs from motion picture that really touch my heart and sometimes I keep listening to them in my jogging or my journey to some place. Check them out:

25.  The Blower’s Daughter by Damien Rice (Closer)

An outstanding song that explains the tagline of this movie “If you believe in love at first sight, you never stop looking”.

-nothing as intrigued as love at first sight-

“..and so it is.. the shorter love, no glory.. no hero in her skies..”

Kita Vs Korupsi: Indonesia, Lekaslah Bangun dari Tidur Berkepanjangan!!

Saya sudah lupa kapan terakhir kali saya sangat menikmati film Indonesia. Maksud kata ‘menikmati’ itu benar-benar terhipnotis masuk ke dalam semua aspek penting dalam sebuah film, baik itu tema cerita, penyutradaraan, eksekusi skrip, dan akting pemainnya.

Malam itu (3/11/13), entah kenapa saya memutuskan untuk menonton film Indonesia. Jenis film yang jarang saya tengok. Mungkin bisa dibilang kalau film dalam negeri adalah film terakhir yang akan saya lihat bila stok film lain sudah habis. Dan entah kenapa dari beberapa film Indonesia yang ada, saya memilih film “Kita Vs Korupsi” (KVK). Tidak terdengar seperti sebuah judul yang komersil, bukan? Bahkan saya tidak yakin kalau film dengan judul seperti ini bakal bertahan sampai tiga hari di bioskop.

Tanpa ada ekspektasi apapun, saya mulai menontonnya.

Setelah beberapa saat, saya baru tahu bahwa ini memang bukan film komersil melainkan hanya sebuah film edukasi atau penyuluhan yang diputar terbatas hanya di beberapa kota melalui roadshow. Sayang sekali. Begitulah perasaan saya setelah selesai menonton film ini. Padahal film ini memiliki kualitas diatas rata-rata film Indonesia.

Oke, sudah cukup basa-basinya. Mari kita bahas lebih detail. Meski agak terlambat karena ini dirilis tahun 2012, saya tidak peduli. Bagi saya, film dengan kapasitas high quality, kapanpun tahun pembuatannya tetap akan menjadi suatu warisan yang berharga untuk setiap generasi.

KVK merupakan film omnibus yang terdiri dari empat cerita pendek yang ada di sekitar kita atau bahkan kita sendiri pun mungkin pernah mengalaminya.

My Top Ten Most Favorites Comedy Romance

Sorry...this film is not in my list at all :D

Sorry…this film is not in my list at all :D

Because of its simplicity and more entertain, I believe everyone loves comedy romance film. Sometimes, some scene inspires us to do something kind of brave and romantic to someone we love.

I thought I don’t. They merely just show me about how they hate each other at first then end up kissing each other. It always has same and same formula. Boring and predictable! The theme or basic story isn’t strong as I expect, just emphasizes the charming of the artist. What a cheap film!

But as time walks, I figure out that not all comedy romance movies are like that. Some surprisingly have high quality story, script, and acting. I don’t only laugh a loud because of the comedy, but also feel amazed of the romance.

Here are the lists of my most favorite comedy romance (and this lists can be changed anytime when I figure out the better one):

Sarah’s Key Vs The Intouchables

Recently I watch many films in this holiday. Some are wasted. Some are surprisingly awesome. I notice two films that left me a long good impression. Accidentally, both are French. The first one is Elle S’Appelait Sarah a.k.a Her Name was Sarah a.k.a Sarah’s Key (Gilles Paquet-Brenner, 2010). The next is Untouchable a.k.a The Intouchables (Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano, 2011). I’ll try to review and discuss both one by one.

My Top 10 All-Time Favorite Films

I believe that everyone has some favorite films of their own. Sometimes it’s not about the best film which won Oscar or Golden Globe, either a box office one. Maybe it’s just an ordinary simple film which is very special personally. It makes us keep watching several times but it feels like we aren’t bored at all.

The main story, some scene, the acting, the score, or other unexplained reasons which make us keep re-watching them continuously.

Yeah, some films always inspire us..and they stay with us forever and ever…

Here are my Top 10 personal films,,

Argo: a Fake Movie for an Intelligent Rescue Mission

Argo (Ben Affleck, 2012)

Prepare to witness a watchable solid thriller from the most acclaimed director this year, Ben Affleck’s Argo. Despite of getting Oscar’s snub for best director, Affleck who so far has brought Golden Globe, BAFTA, and DGA home still has a big opportunity to get his highest honor back through best picture in this month. However, to be honest, I’m not so sure that Academy has such a big heart to admit it since all other events are in Argo’s side. Who knows? Let’s see. (Can’t wait!)

Based on the declassified true story (the tagline says) from the book “The Master of Disguise” by Tony Mendez, it follows an incident during the Iran hostage crisis in 1979. The American embassy there was invaded by Iranian revolutionaries. They took several Americans as hostages. Fortunately, six of them were success to escape to the official residence of the Canadian Ambassador. It’s the CIA now who had an obligation to get them out of the country.  CIA then hired an exfiltration expert, Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck), who finally had a real, weird, genius, and brave idea: to create a fake movie in Iran. It’s not an ordinary fake movie after all, it’s a Hollywood fake movie! So, how can a fake movie get them out of Iran?

Hope Springs, Trouble with the Curve, & Life of Pi: My Short Reviews

1. Hope Springs (2012)


Director: David Frankel

Writer: Vanessa Taylor

Stars: Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones, & Steve Carell

Since I watched the trailer a couple months ago, I found myself become interesting, considering what Frankel and Streep had done with The Devil Wears Prada (2006). Moreover, beside Streep and Lee Jones, Steve Carell joins in it too. How couldn’t it be a promising comedy? I would laugh out loud just like when I saw TDWP. That’s what I thought.

The Impossible, The Paperboy, & The Words: My Short Reviews

1. The Impossible (2012)


Director: Juan Antonio Bayona

Writers: Sergio G. Sánchez (screenplay) & María Belón (story)

Stars: Naomi Watts, Ewan McGregor, and Tom Holland

Based on a real event of Tsunami disaster in Thailand year 2004, this film tells us about a regular British family who spent the holiday there when the deadliest incident happened. I don’t know how accuracy this is, but I must say this is quite impressive and emotional. The description of refugee camp is almost real. Their acting is touching enough, especially for Naomi Watts

Maybe for the real survivors, this is a gem. But for me, some aspect is lack to explore.

Django Unchained: Brutally AWESOME!!


Django Unchained (Quentin Tarantino, 2012)

When it comes to Tarantino’s perspective, I feel enthusiastic easily so much. Having some wild imagination and genius idea then followed with great execution in writing and acting is what I love from all of his film. I’m sure I’ll really enjoy his latest work, Django Unchained, no matter what it is all about and how long the duration is. I’ve fallen in love with his unusual unique directorial style since Reservoir Dogs (1992) and Pulp Fiction (1994).

After waiting one year since the first poster’s published, I finally fulfilled my deepest desire two days ago. I saw it with full of focus. No interruption. I let my ears, eyes, and brain digest and enjoy some extended conversation and brutal scene in this film. So, the result is…………..

Let’s just begin!

Two years before the Civil War in Western (well, Tarantino preferred to call it as a “southern” due to the reality of films setting in America’s deep south), there is a former black slave named Django (Jamie Foxx). One lucky day, he’s released by a quirky dentist who turns a bounty hunter, Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) in order to help him find and recognize three outlaw Brittle brothers. Then, they become partner as bounty hunter team. As a reward, Schultz promises Django to find and rescue his beautiful-German speaking-wife, Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) from a ruthless, brutal, and harsh Mississippi plantation owner, Calvin Candle (Leonardo Dicaprio).

Silenced: a Masterpiece of an Inconvenient Truth


In-ho’s grandmother:

“Is she more important to you than Sol?”

 Kang In-ho:

“I was there when she was being abused but I haven’t done anything. If I let go of her hand now, I don’t think I can be a good father to Sol, either”



Seo Yoo-jin:

“….watching them grow so well, it makes me think that we should not fight to change the world itself but to stop it from changing us that we really are….”


Dogani a.k.a Silenced a.ka The Crucible (Dong-hyuk Hwang, 2011)

Those unforgettable dialogues really make me speechless. I can’t describe any longer how precious those are. You can hear that on one of the best South Korea film I’ve ever seen so far. Adapted from a novel by Jee-young Cong (published in 2009) which based a real story that occurred on a special school for deaf and mute children at Mujin in 2005, it’s not easy to see, but I guess it’s a must see. It’s been a week, but I couldn’t get it out of my head. So, I just write it, try to express what I feel about it. Read the rest of this entry

Skyfall: S K Y F A I L

Skyfall (Sam Mendes, 2012)

I’m not a big fan of James Bond film actually, but I’m a big fan of  Sam Mendes’. First time that Bond film is directed by an Academy Award Winner director (American Beauty, 1999). I have some expectation that in Mendes’ cold hand, Bond film won’t only emphasize a spectacular action anymore, but also a strong plot, just like his previous masterpieces (American Beauty, Road to Perdition, & Revolutionary Road). That will be a one complete package. I think I’m pretty sure that he has that capability. But still, this is a Bond film, a prestigious action film.

Kahaani: Best Original Thriller in 2012 So Far

Kahaani a.k.a Story (Sujoy Ghosh, 2012)

Bollywood cinema nowadays gets so much better in every genre. This is one of the rare examples, Kahaani. I can say that Kahaani is best original solid thriller film in 2012 so far. I mean a real original.

In searching of his lost husband, Arnab Bagchi, a seven-month pregnant woman, Vidya Bagchi goes to Kolkata from London. It has been two weeks since his last call. So, she decides to come to Kolkata by herself for searching him. During her hunt, she gets the help of a local policeman Satyoki Sinha (Rana). It’s not easy for them to find him. Everyone they ask always denies having ever met her husband.

Moonrise Kingdom: Simply Adorable

Moonrise Kingdom (Wes Anderson, 2012)

Two times Academy Award nominee, Wes Anderson, finally comes back after his first hilarious animated film, Fantastic Mr. Fox, in almost three years ago. Now, he presents a new motion picture that will make you totally awe, smile, or even laugh. If you are a huge fan of him, I bet you won’t miss it, just like me.

Though this has big ensemble and high quality cast, as all his films, such as Bill Murray, Bruce Willis, Frances Mcdormand, Edward Norton, Tilda Swinton, and Jason Schwartzman (unfortunately, no more Owen Wilson), it’s not about their story now. At this chance, Anderson wants to tell us about how sweet and innocent a childhood is.
