Prequel to the Sem Break Chronicles

In my last post I listed down several requirements I have to accomplish next week. In this post I will now list down stuff I want to watch this sem break. Yay! (Most of the movies mentioned here came from the reviews of her eminence Jessica Zafra :D)

Movies

1. Woyzeck

“…an odd tragicomedy about a man who is harried until he breaks.” (Zafra, 2003)

2. Cobra Verde

…is a tale of a man who has a very weird career progression. (Zafra, 2003)

3. 25th Hour

Edward Norton is Monty Brogan, a heroin dealer sentenced to seven years to prison. As he spends his last day of being a free man, he says goodbye to the people closest to him. (Zafra, 2003)

4. Lola rennt (Run, Lola, Run)

The story follows a woman who needs to retrieve 100,000 Deutsche Mark in 20 minutes to save her boyfriend’s life (Wikipedia Entry).

5. Der Krieger und Die Kaiserin (The Princess and The Warrior)

It follows the life of Sissi, a psychiatric hospital nurse and Bodo, an anguished former soldier who lapses into criminality… (Wikipedia Entry)

Anime

1. Zero no Tsukaima: Princesses no Rondo

The third anime adaptation of the novel Zero no Tsukaima

2. Rosario + Vampire (Thanks James!)

Tsukune Aono is a painfully average high school freshman who is unable to get into any private school, due to his disappointing test scores. The only school he is finally accepted into turns out to be a secret school for supernatural monsters (yōkai), who are disguised as humans. (Wikipedia Entry)

3. Gundam 00

The series is set in a futuristic Earth and centered around Celestial Being, a private paramilitary force and their efforts to rid the world of warand conflict with a series of unique and highly effective mobile suits known as “Gundams”. (Wikipedia Entry)

4. Lucky Star

Lucky Star’s story portrays the lives of several girls attending a Japanese high school named Ryōō with a very loose sense of humor. (Wikpedia Entry)

Books

1. Kissing in Manhattan (David Schikler)

“…is composed of eleven interwoven stories with recurring characters, many of whom inhabot the Premption, a gothic apartment buildiing with gargoyles overlooking the Hudson River” (Zafra, 2001).

Sample Story

2. Taliban (Ahmed Rashid)

“…a political history of Afghanistan that reads like a spy thriller and a horror novel but is more complex amd harrowing because it is all true” (Zafra, 2001)

3. Nobi (Fires on the Plain) (Shohei Ooka)

4. Man Overboard (Butch Dalisay)

Yeah, I AM GOING TO ENJOY MY SEMBREAK!
