Flipped

Still avoiding the threatening 12-hour Godfather folder from The Helliza Files, so what should I click next but the movie Flipped. Secret shame: I have these sporadic compulsions to watch these hour-and-a-half rom coms, specially if they are extremely funny, and most specially if they are extremely formulaic and bad to the point of unintentional hilarity. And most specially if I don’t have to download them myself, and I can just copy them from the supervillainess Helliza. Enough rationalization. Bakit ba. AHAHAHAHAHAHA.

As it turned out Flipped is more of a coming-of-age movie than a traditional rom-com. At the onset you get the feeling that this is a movie based on a short story or a novel, and because this paragraph is starting to sound like a review like totally, I will now drop lazy, random movie review terms just to get it over with: gravitas, pathos, versimilitude, parallelisms, vivisection. Maybe not vivisection. I just have a fondness for these sort of growing-up stories with the classic elements: summer, neighborhood, endearing grandparents, the awkwardness of first love. And the unique elements, in this case we have the sycamore tree and being a basket boy.

I informed Helliza that although things started to turn around at the end and nothing horrible really happened like the girl falling from the very tall sycamore tree, Flipped is actually a pretty depressing movie. I had no idea what was at the core of feeling quite sad at the end of the film, but supervillainness Helliza who can psychoanalyze by text had this explanation: Nakakainggit kasi na bata pa lang sila ay may true love na sila.

All together now: AHAHAAHAHAHAAHAHAAHAH!
