Since I was being a bum after coming from work, I come across Suddenly It's Magic (which I've been curiously dying to see after it was released last year 2012), I was at first having second thoughts on watching it. But since the co-star was none other than Mario Maurer, I was really into watching the movie then. And since I get attached to it's story line and quotables lines, I just can't help but make a review of it.
It's just to sad that I was able to watch it almost 30 minutes ago, since it started, but still I was engrossed to see the movie. At first, I was thinking it will all be "korny" or "cheesy", since it is a collaborated movie of Philippines and Thailand, but I was wrong. If I were to rate it based on the quotes, lessons and as well as the swoon factor.
It talks about how you are really willing to do anything when it comes to relationships. Specially when you know that you have found it already. The one that you'll be keeping for keeps. It may sound cliche, but let's just face it, in each and everyone of us longs for a happy ending.
The story revolved around the life of Joey (Erich Gonzales) and Marcus (Mario Maurer), where life comes to a twist when they met. The usual "enemy-turn-to-lovers" was their meet-up, but the story got a little interesting since the two of them comes from different countries and provinces, language is one of their barriers and hindrances in having a easy relationship. Also from their personal differences, made them fall for each other even more.
I was just caught with their characters, since it represents two individuals on how they faced LOVE when it comes knocking at them.
JOEY (Josephine 'Joey' Hermosa - Erich Gonzales)
She is the typical Filipina, that is into heart when doing something. She bakes cupcakes and other pastries as her living. She is also the kind of girl who is afraid to enter into a relationship after having a heartache from his ex-boyfriend Marvin (Guji Lorenzana), who cheated on her. From there, then closed her heart into falling in love and as well as having fears in entering another again. She was afraid to try and enter into something, when she knows that she will just be hurting once again. The more that she feared love, because of her family background that turned out to be the unusual time. Being a daughter outside. The more that she suppressed and shun herself into the concept of love and everything that has to do with it.
MARCUS (Marcus Hanson - Mario Maurer)
He's the typical good looking guy and a famous actor in Thailand. He loves his job so much that he met the girl of her dreams, Sririta (Baifern Pimchanok), in his career. But just like any other showbiz relationships, he got his heart broken into pieces and started hating his job because of the girl. Then he decided to go to the Philippines to unwind, not knowing he'll be finding the girl who he will truly love for the rest of his life. He is the kind of guy that will do anything just to keep his girl and will definitely be proud to show his feelings for her.
The most movie was just full of nice quotes that you will def love and as well as will mark our minds and hurts. Here are some of those catchy lines that will def live you almost memorizing some.
"I’m getting all of my dreams because you set me free. And all of my dreams would mean more if you’re with me. And I still love you. I would like to think and to believe that this time we’re stronger, we’re more grown-up, we know better, and because we know what’s like to be apart from each other. And no matter how tough things get, we’re not gonna let each other go again. Will you be with me?" - Marcus
It's not a lie. They may have lied to us, but the love we felt from them, the love they gave. That was true. That's why it hurts. And that's why we learn to appreciate the next one that comes along.
It's a really good movie even if there are parts that are predictable, but this will surely touch your hearts and feelings. You'll learn a lot specially when it comes on being in a relationship and able to surpass trials that comes the way.
