Hey y'all another year have flown by us, I'm sitting in the office with a couple of officemates yet again this year. mood? sucky, but I guess I'll manage lah kot. No point going into the new year all grumpy and bahhh humbug like. So what to reflect on? 2009 was a good year in comparison to 2008. Dad is recovering well, his mouth is back as well...ah biarkan lah, buat pekak jer ah. Work was fun, except when it comes to Malaysian holiday then i'll be all grumpy again..social life not bad. Travel..went Thailand like finally but overall experience was so-so, Sipadan was better..hope to go there again when I have the money. A couple of loses that shocked me to the core (no not MJ). Al Fatihah to arwah Enda (eda's mom) who pass away.
Movie was gooooood! In comparison to last year's entry this year..fuh better2.Watchmen,Orphan,Drag Me to Hell, Star Trek..to name a few. Tv shows? Started liking a show named Dexter..dunno who to gave credit 4 introducing me to this show..but there was someone who mentioned I would like it...whoever it is u have my thanks. Err then there's Scrubs in which I thought ended came back!..(beria aku bukak post solely for Scrubs) but meh...the new staff kinda weak. As for True Blood...naah not yet...maybe next year I start...maybe.
Now how bout the decade...should I review? Actually dah ready a couple of times to list out top 20 movie/shows/moments in cinema ...tapi ultimately..aku malas spend time menulis...I rather be in front of the pc watching movies/shows. However in a nutshell maybe I'll just review some of the memorable ones..at least memorable for me lah.
Pitch Black introduced me to the ever cool Vin Dissel (in which aku xtau mana hang pi dah)..his anti-hero character Riddick blowed me away...I was a fan there and then. Also the movie was great!..fav scene gotta be the part they walk in the dark towards salvation with only a lil amount of light to keep the monsters at bay..good image shown there.
The Descent didn't know where this movie came from..I download it only because in IMDB The Cave's page someone said The Descent was mightier and it was...it really really really was. First 40 min was just cool but I was near to tears due to boredom but when that thing showed it's fugly face via nightcam...it made me jumped..and I don't mean technically I literally was shocked!Plus I was wearing headphones. the rest of the movie was simply classic...no doubt one of the best movie this year.
2000 came in Battle Royale, saw it in 2001 i think, thanks to Kazumi who saw my must see movie list at that time..and I didnt even know it was a Japanese movie.HAHA (gelak fake) But yo what a movie, what a controversial and cool (yes I find people hacking each other cool)movie. And I had a small crush on girl #2, Yukie i think was her name..but alas her scene was short.I was so obsess with this movie, i bought the t-shirt (which is now lost in limbo) and I even have the Manga comic..and the Manga Comic was goooooooooooooooooood..soo good I think they should make a tv series out of it..and then there's Battle Royale 2...that bombed.nuff said.
Cloverfield, I think i'm the only one in love with this movie, cause I see only like 1 person have mentioned this movie as their fav in decade..the others? none existent. agak kecewa ah gak..but after much thinking..at least it'll make it much special for me..kot. I saw this movie like 4 times at the cinema kot..and wasn't one bit bored even after I know what would happen next and next and next. Marlena's scene still sticking out in me head..i think by now it's embedded there. The only reason I can think of Y i love this movie so much is because, it felt real..i imagine a lot..seriously..and to see a city being attack and looked so real, like I was there was...cool.hehe.
Zombie flicks, a lot came in this decade..I think that's the horror theme for this decade..80s was slasher..90s...erm 90s aku taktau..mixture kot? Anyway the first appearance of the zombie in 28 Days Later redefine zombies..it was scary it was simply wow..yeah WOW. I think I was doing a sprint too watching that scene..and Cillian Murphy u rule.great great acting..and that wasn't the end..somehow Dawn of Dead was remade...and for me ingat for me tau...it superior than the original. I Lurrrrrrrrrrrrrrve it. and then came more, 28 Weeks Later which intro scene is really haunting, love the score during this scene; REC/ Quarantine and some other ok and sucky zombie movie.
What else..erm lots of remake, some hits and some misses. Superior than the orignal for me were ; Hills have Eyes, Last House on the Left, Dawn of the Dead (there maybe more but I can't recall now); some good ones like Texas Chainsaw (yes I like this movie) and some really really bad ones..When Stranger Calls,HALLOWEEN; boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
New Villains were introduce; Jigsaw, That freakshow in Hatchet (i want more of u!)..The Ruins plants to name a few. A lot of good revamped (supposedly not remake) like Star Trek and Batman Begins both woah movies...and then ermm apa lagi yeh..oh there's Scream 3 in 2000...ehehe nak sebut gak. It was good enuff for me...not the best..but Wes Craven did came back with Red Eye which rocks...quite intense thriller.. erm apa lagi..eh xmo mengarut dah lah...I thought of writing a lil now look what I have done..ahahaha. Maybe I'll continue with Tv series..maybe I won't but whatever it is...
HAVE AN EXCELLENT NEW YEAR..thanks for supporting the blog u readers..mesra
