Joe proceeds to fall in love with Parrish's beautiful young daughter, Susan, a hard-working doctor--the apple of her father's eye. For Parrish, Susan, and the rest of his family, the consequences of this romance are profound, complicated and bittersweet, for revealed only to William Parrish is the fact that Joe Black is actually the personification of Death--awaiting for the proper moment to guide Parrish to the next world.

Kanina sa Comp. Gov't Asia... namin, nanood kami ng Meet Joe Black kaya nga I made an entry eh. Grabe! so much ang ka-adonisan ni Brad Pitt ah. *erase! erase! erase!* Pero maganda talaga ung movie. I love it nga eh. At first mejo hindi ko na-appreciate ung simula ng movie, kasi din naman storbo ang audio ng pinapanooran namin. All means na ata ang nagawa namin marinig lang ung audio eh. Time consuming un talaga! Kainis! Pero buti nalang we managed to watch the movie well naman. Naayos din sa wakas!

Sa umpisa palang ng movie maa-appreciate mo na ang mga lines ng mga characters. Quotable kung baga. Galing nung scriptwriter!

Ang weird ni Bill Parrish kasi may weird voice na kumakausap sa kanya at kinakausap din nya. Naguluhan ako kasi para syang nagha-hallucinate. Pero naintindihan ko na as the movie runs forward. Mejo nagulat naman ako kay Brad Pitt nung namatay sya. OUCH! ang saklap naman ng pagkamatay nya. Kasi naman, tatanga-tanga eh. Argh!

The way Susan speaks to Joe is so sexy. It seemed like she is always seducing Joe whenever they were together and vice versa. Gosh! I could get carried away by their choice of words. I love their lines also after they made love. Shax! sarap siguro ng feeling na sinasabi un sau ng mahal mo after the you know what I mean thing. Mejo naantig ako nung parang nagbb-bye na si Joe kay Susan. Ang hirap naman talaga ng situation nila eh.

Haha! kawawang Drew, palagi siyang barado kay Joe. Natawa nga ako dun sa scene na aaminin na ni Joe kung sino siya at kung anong connection nya kay Bill eh. Yun din kasi ung pino-point out na reason ni Drew kaya dapat ng mag-resign si Bill sa company nya at i-merge un with another company din.

Happy ending naman ang nangyari. Kaso nakakalungkot nga lang kasi Susan's father have to go na talaga. But a twist happened kay Joe in the end. Ang galing nga eh. Buti naman at nagkaganon, sayang din si Brad Pitt noh. Kakapanghinayang naman kung mababawasan ng isang wafung guy sa mundo.


Here's some of my favorite quotes from the movie;
"Love is passion, obsession, someone you can't live without. If you don't start with that, what are you going to end up with? Fall head over heels. I say find someone you can love like crazy and who'll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart. I'm not hearing any heart. Run the risk, if you get hurt, you'll come back. Because, the truth is there is no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love - well, you haven't lived a life at all. You have to try. Because if you haven't tried, you haven't lived."
"Trust, responsibility, taking the weight for your choices and feelings, and spending the rest of your life living up to them. And above all, not hurting the object of your love."
"Some aimless infatuation which, for the moment, you feel like indulging - it's missing everything that matters."
-Bill Parrish
