the legends of the guardian of resident evil after life and taking a step up

1 comment :
yesterday gone on a awesome full date with dearest stephanie and aside from the snacking and shopping, we watched 3 movie yesterday one at one utama and another 2 at sunway pyramid. and yes its kinda obvious which seats better. haha . GSC wins hands down.

so tis is gonna be kinda long here goes

first stop resident evil

Movie in a glimpse:
The movie is a continuation of the franchise movie resident evil, being the fourth it is set after the events where alice finds out about her clones. so now fleeing from area to area she looks for survivors and tries not to give up hope.

My talks:
Not being a fan of the movie series , the first 3 movies is a bit more entertaining then tis one though the effects were quite and only QUITE interesting the whole movie was like a merry go round ride.slow and repetitive.nothing in the movie interest at all at tis point, not the stunts not the zombies.and i also feel that i had an overdose of bullet time which probably took out ten minutes from the film

Best part:
The gun armory

Stamped and mailed:
The whole movie is probably a delight to many action goers or fanatics or slow motion shooting and zombie flicks but as a fan of those myself i find it stale and boring now .

The part that pissed me off the most:

the butcher from RE4

Executioner? from silent hill

i dunno a bout u guys but i see some resemblance here

Next stop , step up 3


Movie in a glimpse:
Luke(Rick Malambri) is a dance fanatic with dancing running in his blood , taking many dancers from the streets who shares the same passion and no place to stay, and now their only place to dance (their home studio) is threaten for closure due to like 5 months unpaid rentals.Now they need to enter the world jam dance competion to win 100k to get it back. finding moose and natalie as the new dancers that were talented enuf to lead them to the champion.

My talk:
Well, honestly speaking i guess when u see one dance movie u seen them all.the same try to inspire dreams and hope concept is there , i cant say i hate that concept, its overused but it still works to inspire some people, when the story is old the only thing that can make up for it . IS of course the dance moves and choreography. impressive stunts and moves and it has its fair share of visual effects mixed in, the cinematography was really well.

Best parts
The training ground
The pirate nest
The gwai water battle
The ending battle

Stamped and mailed:
An entertaining movie to watch which slick moves and stunts,if u are down on ur luck and feel like losing passion for wat u interest in  this will probably help u burn that passion fire up again. A nice movie to watch, even with your family.

The part that pissed me off:
nah, there werent any.

Final stop,*phew*
The legends of the guardians and the owls of Ga'hoole


Movie in a glimpse
A young owl seeking adventure hearing stories of its ancestors from his father, a legendary battle and such, then he himself is pushed into the adventure he seeks, but with adventure there is always danger. The story is much like tis . Story shows how a young and eager owl sees the world in a different point when he soon realise he must save his civilisation.

My talk:
The visual effects for this one is stunning to me, there were several scenes which would make audience filled with much emotion for the effects it self .But the story coming from 3 books didnt impress me much because it feels normal and the truth is~ it only worked because its owls we are talking about and its animation.If the story were humans then it felt much like Lotr meet avatar know? an impressive movie for the effects but the story is straight forward most likely its because its a kids show but many older audience will enjoy it as well. and much to my delight they didnt try to push in a bit of romance in it. haha

Best parts:
The baggywrinkles flight

Stamped and mailed
A movie for the whole family to watch . nothing can be said. its an entertaining effect roller coaster ride and much better den Re4 effects .LOL

The part that i find amusing
Notice how all the owls have cool names? Eglantine, Soren, Lyze of kiel,Gylfie,Otulissa etc, but then! the main villian is called wat? metal break? thats just weak. haha

wow thats about it.
well i m not a good movie reviewer, not a pro just amatuer level. so for a better info on Re4 and  the legends of the guardians check out my buddies blog.





and here is my gf^^

cross time

No comments :
each person has their own time, their own birth, their own death
each person has another time, which they share and cross with each other.

privacy and fellowship

the past and the present and the future to come

we look and think of the past,
oni to see the stupid things we have done
we look at ourselves present
oni to learn  that we did not learn much from our past mistakes

failed exams and money spent.
broken hearts and damaged bonds.

"what if" we would always say

and could we have changed it.

we cross times more den once, with each other and with ourselves. chances to mend chances to repent.

yet sometimes we decided not to. we move on

could we have a brighter future
would our previous endeavors guide us past crucial times in our lives
oni if we took life into our own hands and mold it to our future , can there be true future

what u do say and feel, will open paths to endless worlds and times. we do not choose them, we simply make them.
anything goes
anything goes
just go with the flow.

irreplaceable

No comments :
someone told me another day,
"didnt u wish u had studied harder for ur SPM?"
"didnt u wish u went to Catholic instead of samad?"
"didnt u wish u joined something more productive like the maths club"
"didnt u wish u chose a diff uni besides Utar"
"didnt u wish u chose a different course since kampar is so boring"

so i told him, with a calm voice.

" i never regreted any of this, of course i felt sad and pain when things went wrong, and through out those times i felt oni brief moments of happiness. but i also understand during those times, we take the good with the bad, and throughout those hardship, i consider them to be irreplaceable moments of my life. the pain the sufferings and sometimes the fun, everyone was there with me, there were friends all around me. the things i learn the knowledge i acquired was all there thanks to the support of everyone around. regret and feeling that i m unlucky? i consider my self pretty lucky , to have seen it all happen around me, the happenings that we should have called life yet some people curse it and do not decide to embrace it"

i have come to understand that i have irreplaceable things in my life.
things that my heart knows that it cant be changed

my family
my friends
my skills
my knowledge
my experience
my moments of despair
my moments of happiness
my failures
my victories
my pain
my time
my choices
and of course my dear sweet love. THM

things that have formed me, i didnt made myself to be who i am today, THOSE DID, and regretting those that has happen to me to form me would really be the most regretful thing u would be doing.

i cherish every moment i had with anyone, with anything.

and den i smiled to him and said

"if u stay here and tell me to regret what i have been through and the choices or things that happened,.then i would just consider u as another moment, and i know that i will not make the same mistake YOU did in this conversation. the lack of ability to embrace reality and form dreams."

u mold urself

kampar work day

No comments :
 went to help ice sharks' owner with a cultural charity night event. (ice shark is a dessert shop in kampar)

    it was by the jing wu wushu society of kampar. basicly wat we did was the pass out the food to people who bought coupons to attend tis event.We gathered at 5pm at the shop den started moving things to the venue. it wasnt a buffet style thing, u are free to choose wat u wan to eat from the dishes we had but its not all u can eat.
the event wasnt big, but it had a variety of wu shu performances by secondary kids. some seemed a bit unripe for it but at least they tried. some were quite good. they need a lot more practice.A lot of funny things happens . aunties and uncles took 90% of the attendees and aunties and uncles are soooooo auntyish and uncleyish. haha. the organizers are all probably retirees as well. and they nag and nag and nag. haha but it was a fun night working with pang chong ,ah lun and ah lum and of course the shop owner. haha
here are some pics ,didnt had time to snap much cause we were scooping food for them none stop.




it was good night, we wrapped up about 10.30pm, den when we went back to home base a.k.a. the shop, we stayed to helped out because they were short handed.

king of fail

No comments :

now, i used to played this game a lot when i was young , mastering all the combos and shit was one heck of a big hassle but it was one of the things that were in at my age along with street fighters and such.

now here is the synopsis*ugh*

since i downloaded this movie over the internet about 3 hours ago , it was oni out in the us i think . or mayb it was straight to dvd . 

The whole story revolves around CIA undercover agent / King Of fighters participant (Maggie Q) who was under the mission to uncover a so called underground syndicate for fighting, the fighters are plugged in to a bluetooth earpiece to be transported into another world/dimension to fight.
This was made possible by ancient relics of different clans who fought in tournaments in the past as well, den some dude decides he wants to use the power to summon a great demonic power to rule the dimensions and fusing it with the original wan.

taipau: i watched chun li( disaster),tekken(crap),dragon ball(utter bullshit) and thought maybe they would have improve since these movies were quite close together so mayb KoF wouldnt be THAT disappointing , but iwas wrong, so dead wrong

For starters the whole script was so badly written , the actors felt like they were reading through cue cards at the set, LITERALLY. and the casting was again a total shit. for those who don play the game, KoF is a multiracial fighting game which we have fighters from everywhere, americans, japanese, thai, European and such, so besides the whole japanese character must be Caucasian shit, they could at list fing decent people that actually look like the blardy characters. for instance Terry Bogard in the game is buffed and tall, whilst in the movie his some scrawny CIA agent.(i had the urge to stop when  i knew a bout tis)

The camera work felt like they were using narrow angled cameras the whole time. everyone was so dam closed up ALL THE TIME, even when they fight!it is suffocating

The music felt cliche, 

The effects at first sight felt cool, den after a second time u realized their just trying to trick u into thinking it looks good.the video game itself was famous for its maximum combo moves that each character can execute
so they tried to follow suit but failed, all we had was flaming fist and electric barriers. 

its a good thing i didnt watch it at the cinema. 

so in a nutshell

script and dialogue : fail
casting: fail
acting: fail
camera,fx,bgm: fail
fight scene: it could have been good if not for editing and camera so it failed as well

if someone told me they liked the movie, chances are the loved chun li and the gang as well.

i give tis movie

best scene:i cant think of any

worst scene: from beginning to end, especially the CIA crap

0/5

nope, i tried to give maggie Q a chance, but she was the oni better actress there, and she shouldnt even be in the movie. Mai got HUGE JUGS FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!

here is the trailer for protocol reasons 




i just watch tis trailer , after i watched the movie. and i lol-ed so hard.

and den i got tis one. where the director and actors/actresses commented . listen carefully
