Since the blog is quite dead here..so i figured i should just put something up so that this blog won't be extinct anymore..haha..
It's the hols now so i've been watching quite a lot of movies..most of them through illegal means (shh..) so i'll just give you a run through on what to watch and what NOT to watch. But all of this is IMHO of course. One man's meat may be another man's poison, so they say.
Mr. and Mr. Smith
So what happens when husband and wife shoot a movie together (not sure whether they were already married then)? There's definitely a lot of chemistry between these two. For obvious reasons this movie is nice to watch as the sexiest man and woman are playing the leads. Not much of a plot though. Lot's of bombs and explosives and knives. But yeah, a feel good movie to watch. I give 3/5 stars,
At first I didn't want to watch this show. After all, it was all about robots, machinery, etc..not my kind of thing. But then this movie started to get rave reviews from everyone who watched it. So i went with my dad to catch it in the cinema. WOW. It's was good. Lot's of action and even funny at some parts. It's kinda like ageeks rule movie. So if you're thinking geeks are uncool, think again. Micheal Bay certainly did a great job with this movie. Highly recommended4 1/2 stars. And oh yeah, those who missed it on the big screen, poor you. It's so much better in the cinema.
Thanks to Mayjet for the DVD! (return it to you soon). So basically it's musical. I won't give out much details here. It's colourful, fun, vibrant. Singing, dancing is good, except for the duet between Edna Turnblad (John Travolta) and 'her' husband, Wilbur Turnblad 'Christopher Walken'. The duet was weird..haha..not sure how to describe it la. It's not a really funny film la, just lots of singing and dancing and the serious issue of racial inequality. Newcomer Nikki Blonsly as Tracy Turnblad, the main character is pretty impressive. Zac Efron is better in this movie than in the HSM movies. James Marsden..his singing is not bad man, who would have known the Cyclops in X-Men could sing? So how high would i rate this movie? 4 Stars, if there was such a thing.
The latest movie to hit our shores as of 4th of December. I guess the main attraction of the film was Patrick Dempsey, the guy on the right of Grey's Anatomy fame. Apparently, most of the bystanders during the filming were shouting out his name. So what do i think of it? It's fun, feel good, and this movie makes you so sick of love (right Zhi Hui). It has the cartoon element mixed with the reality of life. Snow white, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella all thrown into the mix. This movie wouldn't be Disney if they didn't have singing or dancing right? So there are a few parts of singing and dancing, i esp like the part when this whole big group dance and sing in the middle of central park. Susan Sarandon plays the evil queen and she's pretty good. James Marsden is the bumbling self-obsessed prince, who also sings in this movie. Timothy Spall is Nathaniel, the Queen's sidekick, who is so darn resourceful. I guess employment in New York is easy peasy. No qualification also can work as waiter, taxi driver, sell apples at Central Park. Oh well..disney movie right. Amy Adams as Giselle, the super naive princess is delightful. And oh yeah, Patrick Demspey as the serious lawyer is really appropriate. Interesting way of calling the animals too. Highly recommended for the holiday season. 4 1/2 stars. And oh, did i mention this movie was funny too?
Here's the scene at Central Park:
Okay i admit. Before Enchanted, there's usually lots of trailers. Then the sequel for National Treasure- Book of Secrets came on. It seemed so cool and fast moving so when i went home i pulled out this DVD to watch. The movie is so intriguing, smart and also there's some element of comedy. Can't say that the idea of hidden treasure is purely original but hey, I think this movie is quite watchable. Nicholas Cage plays Ben Gates, the super smart guy who can solve all the clues. Haha. His assistant, Riley Poole played by Justin Bartha provides the funny comments etc. Plus he's cute. HAHA. So why don't you give this movie a try? Then after that we all can watch the sequel together eh?? 4/5 stars.
Sequel of National Treasure (National Treasure- Book of Secrets)

What NOT to watch will be coming soon.
