[Review] Naruto: Road to Ninja

Road to Ninja movie poster.
I missed the first ten minutes of this movie because I attended the 2013 Ozine Fest! It is not my first time to be late in a cinema but I regretted it. I mean, Naruto, one of my favorite anime, is showing in the big screen! How could I have been late?

This movie is still in anime format. The language is in Japanese but the subtitles are big enough to read on the big screen. We follow the Naruto Shippuden arc where the hero, Naruto, is all mature. The plot of Road to Ninja is independent of the series. But seeing this movie will give you a deeper perspective of Naruto's character and history. 

Road to Ninja is about Naruto (of course) who suddenly encounters Madara. The villain uses his Sharingan to trap Naruto and Sakura in a world of illusion that he created. Now our heroes need to find their way out. However, Madara has a hidden ulterior motive that will put them to the test. 

This movie balances comedy and drama. Thus, it will take you to a roller coaster ride of emotions. The humor will make you laugh your heart out. But when the sad situations start to kick in, you will hold back tears, or even cry. Furthermore, this movie presented extraordinary action scenes and continuous twists. Just when you thought everything is fine, another adversity appears... then another and another. Add the surprise element to that!

Character development focuses a little on Sakura and more on Naruto. For those who don't follow the series regularly, this movie is a big help. It gave an in depth understanding of Sakura and Naruto's attitudes and life stories. 

The sounds, animation, and character design stays true to the manga version. There is still the lighting-like sound of rasengan, or the clanging sounds of kunai and shuriken! The mangaka/creator of Naruto, Masashi Kishimoto, has been active in the development of this movie after all. Because of that, Road to Ninja didn't disappoint fans. 

The run time of this movie is approximately 1 hour and 50 minutes. You should watch this! It is worth your time and money! Oh! Make sure you come on time... I think the first 10 minutes was full of action scenes! And I missed that! Argh~~

Ratings:
Movie Poster: 5 stars (even the poster tells the summary of the movie in one go! Bravo!)
Sounds: 5 stars
Animation: 5 stars
Plot: 5 stars
Overall: 5 STARS

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain

Rain and HyunA

After four months, the Rain Effect still leaves a mark in me. It is a great album and if I have all the time in the world, I would feature each track in a full write up. For this sixth volume, Rain had a song which featured the K-Pop artist HyunA. It is entitled "Where are you going, Oppa?" and it has a nice Arabian-like beat infused with bass and hip hop, it hints of sexiness too.  For today, I will write about this song that was successful in bringing out a reaction in me. Let’s listen… Fan video by Miyu MaGirlYura So now you understand why it brought a reaction in me? Hehehe ~ It means that the artist is successful in bringing out the emotion through a song. One thing is for sure, Rain chose the perfect girl to sing with him. Both are top caliber artists in their own field. And because of him, I now like HyunA and I researched about her. Kum Hyuna (HyunA) I already know the entertainer named HyunA. I can't remember how, though. I just know her as the n
