before going home to the province for the holidays, i finally found time to watch the DVDs that were long sitting on top of my player. i rented them more than a week ago, and for sure my penalty would even be higher than their price had i bought them instead (the pirated ones, of course...tee-hee!)

first one i popped into my player was the movie Hancock (i know, i know...i'm so outdated!). this movie really made me curious coz i remember some colleagues talking about it months ago. i just love superhero movies, and this one, according to them is way different.

and they are so damn right. i chuckle each time i'd see Will Smith taking off to fly. he's such a disaster! and geesh, he's one scary super hero too. LOL!

but of course, the movie has lessons to offer. some points i have learned:

1. everybody deserves a chance to change. no matter how twisted a person is, he deserves a fair chance to change himself for the better. and it helps to have people around you who believe that you can indeed change. of course, nobody wants to be hated or ridiculed. everybody wants somebody to be proud of them, and everybody longs for the feeling of being wanted. if only everybody would be given a chance to prove themselves, i guess the world be a much better place to live in.

2. love is sacrifice. i cried a lot when i found out that Hancock has a wife...and that they love each other in the past (and maybe until now) but they can't just be together. it sucks...(and i thought this only happens in my so-called life, lol). imagine, sacrificing your own happiness for everybody else's sake. they both knew they can't be together...and that it would bring the world so much peace and happiness if they aren't together. it hurts to see people who love each other turn their backs away from each other. but yeah, everything happens for a reason...and i know it sucks, but their sacrifice isn't going to waste after all.

i love the movie....made me realize a lot of can change a person, and yet, sometimes love just ain't enough.
