10 Movies to Watch in October

Dolphin Tale 2, The Boxtrolls, and Alexander and Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day plus more!
  1. The Boxtrolls (opens October 1). Don't judge a troll by its cover—these oddballs are the most loyal and resourceful bunch you’ll ever meet. They've even raised a human as one of their own, an abandoned orphan named they named *drum roll please* Eggs. Elle Fanning and Isaac Hempstead Wright lend their voices to this animated movie.

  2. Foosball: The Unbeatables (October 1). This animated movie stars Harry Potter's Rupert Grint as the voice of a "shy table soccer genius" who gets by with a little help from his foosball figurines that come to life. (Weasley is our king!)

  3. Dolphin Tale 2 (opens October 8). Winter’s surrogate mom, Panama, passes away, leaving her curled up in a ball of angst (in her dolphin way). A new dolphin named Hope arrives to, well, hopefully save the day. (Hey, that rhymed!)

  4. Dracula Untold (opens October 15). The origin story of the legendary immortal involves a despicable demon, a deal with the devil, and the ultimate sacrifice. Game of Thrones fans will be thrilled to see (and find the parallelism of having) Art Parkinson (Rickon Stark) as Vlad’s son, and Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister) as the demon.

  5. Alexander and Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (opens October 15). Do you ever have those days when you feel like nothing is going right? As you can tell by the long title, 11-year-old Alexander understands that the struggle is real.

  6. The Book of Life (opens October 16). The fantastical movie is a feast for the eyes and the soul. You can even get some Halloween costume ideas from it!

  7. Grace (premieres October 17, 10 pm on HBO). Speaking of Halloween, bring on the fear factor with this new mini series about a father who condemns his family to "unspeakable horror." *chills*

  8. The Best of Me (opens October 22). A tale of first love and second chances from the man behind The Notebook and A Walk to Remember. If you're wondering why the actors in the trailer look familiar, that’s because they’ve all dabbled in rom-com/drama films: James Marsden in 27 Dresses and Enchanted, Michelle Monaghan in Made of Honor, Liana Liberato in If I Stay and Stuck in Love, and Luke Bracey in Monte Carlo.

  9. Paranormal Island (opens October 22). The fifth Paranormal Activity has been moved to next year, so in the meantime, you can fill your thirst for the creepy with this horror movie starring Step Up's Briana Evigan.

  10. Life After Beth (now on DVD). What’s worse than an ex who won’t let go? An undead ex. What’s better than a clingy zombie ex? When that clingy zombie ex is Aubrey Plaza. Also starring The Amazing Spider-Man 2’s Dane DeHaan.

A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender

Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.

Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.

It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.

Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
