Overated Horror Classic

Baru2 nih bila aku masuk website/reviewer fav aku Arrow ada article baru top 10.Dulu rajin gak aku wat top 10, neh skg maleh dah skit. Tapi top 10 baru nih cool cause cam banyak benda aku leh agree...tapi ada gak benda aku tak agree on. Latest topic is about Top 10: Overrated Horror. I'm not gonna list out every movie in the list cause takut plagiarism if copy paste all. Well here goes;


I know this is Jessica Alba, saja letak cause aku benci dia

What he said :
Don't get me wrong here. PSYCHO is a great movie for what it is. Unfortunately so much has been taken from it that when you watch it nowadays the movie does not hold up. The scary scenes aren't scary, the kills are in some ways kinda silly, and the end reveal, well it's been pretty well revealed. I still think there are many reasons to watch the flick, but as an example of best of genre? Not so much.

What I think :
Eh, pretty scary gak ah shower scene and it's pretty much well made. Tak lupa gak org disangka heroine mati awal..dimana bagi aku agak rare. But other than that...mmg xlah scary sangat..eh tapi Anthony Perkins cool per lakonan.

9. SAW

What he said :
This is somewhat painful to admit, because I've interviewed James Wan and think he's one of the most awesome and sincere guys working today. But I just didn't dig the first SAW. Traps and concept were cool for sure, but the overall pace and especially the acting fell flat for me.

What I think :
Greatest ending ever...thats enuff for me. OH dan I dont' agree with this --->acting fell flat for me

7. The Birds

What he said :
We might all have fallen victim to the Hitchcock mystique a bit with this one. I mean, how bad could it be? Well, pretty bad actually. The problem is that birds aren't scary. You could put Hitchcock in charge of a movie about spoiled lunchmeat and it's still just a movie about bad bologna. I get why he wanted to tackle the Earth run amok concept. It just wasn't the right way to go about it. No offense Hitch.

What I think :
Aku tak baca pon actually...tapi bila aku nampak nih dlm list aku tepuk tangan cause bagi aku highlyyyyyyyyyyyy overated..burung? u kidding me? burung? though scene dlm phonebooth tuh agak classic ah gak(mana taknyer diremake merata2)..but stil..burung? hish.

6. Last House on the Left

What he said :
Shocking! Horrible! Torturous! Um, boring. Last House may have been sick and crazy in it's time, but there's hardly anything in the flick that you couldn't show on network TV anymore. Any serious impact that might still exist is pretty much destroyed by goofy music and over the top performances. I'm not saying you should watch this with your mom, but don't expect to be blown away either.

What I Think :
The one in Bold...amen sister..hey hey hey. Seriously Torturous My Fanny.


What he said :
Great effects no doubt. But great movie? Not so much. Sure the last line is awesome, and there's some sexiness to be had, but overall we're talking about hamhanded dialogue and overlong waits for the good stuff. Even SILVER BULLET is a more entertaining werewolf flick on balance. For that matter, so is TEEN WOLF. Want amazing effects to go with your wolvie craving? Get AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON. Want some cheap genre popcorn that will seem better than it is? Well here ya go.

What I think :
I actually like Howling, hmmm effects COOL ok...wolf dia besaq lagi menakutkan..nonetheless dia betul dari segi American Werewolf is better.Entah susah nak ckp..but aku rasa it aint bad


What he said :
Jack's amazing in this. No doubt about it. And some of the images at play are haunting for sure. Creepy twins, elevators spewing blood, axe's tearing through bathroom walls, redrum, and "Here's Johnny!" All great stuff. The problem is that the overall plot of the film is super superficial compared to the original work. Don't believe me? Read it. Or at least watch the excellent mini-series. Kubrick's a genius, but this was a minor effort with little to recommend it beyond, "Wow, Jack was great!"

What I think:
Jack alone held this movie, Jack alone did great, Jack alone is enuff to make this a great movie..great yeh..and I prefer this than the Stephen King Mini-siries (ok aku admit aku tak tgk abih pon mini-series to)


What he said :
I can't for the life of me figure out why people love this flick. It's one of the few times I've truly felt a remake did a better job than the original. Not only are the characters completely uncharismatic, but the intensity of the film (outside of the first kill with the mallet which is bloody awesome!) just ain't there. Overall it's like 10 minutes of cool stuff and the rest is just boredom and pain.

What I think :
Bergenang air mata aku baca nih #1. I like this flick, 1 thing though I agree that the remake is one of the better remakes (but it doesn't surpasses the original). Tapi come on!...minah last kena torture tuh best yeh...bagi aku gila realistic lakonan minah tuh..pastuh ngan tarian hula si Leatherface wat kat ending tuh nuts...NUTS. btw nuts=cool

Fyi to all; blog nih akan flip flop sat tutup sat buka kerana aku tgh cuba revamp skit layout.Jangan mara..semua nyer bermula dari hati ku

See only when ur high...

Lepas Mega Shark Vs Giant Octopus aku semangat lak nak tgk cerita2 binatang2 besaq nih lagi...bkn apa...niat mmg nak gelak jer..xmo amik serious. So search ah rapid, jumpa this 1 post which list AND links to rapid some giant Crocodiles/Alligator flicks. Yummmmmmm, pastu nampak poster movie croc nih..tajuk Krokodilus? but a.k.a Blood Surf. Pastuh terflashback zaman kat MMU si Azmir ni ada once excited suh aku tgk this croc movie, aku ingat cam bunyi kokodile something like that...yg ada scene mati paling ngok dlm dunia nih. Dari apa dia explain lawak gampang gak ah...tapi gotta see it to believe it kan. So me thinks nih lah kot movienyer maka dl lah aku...after much laughter by the ever so stupid scripts (yet funny) and corny as ..erm shit? fx...the last 10 minute muncul lah adengan ngok nih...

This is the ever so cool actress yg bakal mati, also known as headlights

Short history, 3 remaining survivors nih baru berjaya kalahkan buaya nih by knocking some bricks onto it, 1 of em just lost her guy..so tgh nak blah dari scene of crime..minah nih stop

and started to kick the Croc!

"I hate you, u stupid F!$#!, I hate you" kata nyer masih menendang.

Masih hating dan menendang


Wohooooooo! <--nih ayat aku

Ok dumbass dead now

aaaahhhh best adengan nih..ahahaha.seriously? I hate you? U killed my bf? LOL! and the croc was just out cold (or pretending to be) bodoh ke apa??? Apart from that scene banyak lah adengan ngok kot...tapi nih the best.Tak lupa lakonan sekor2 cast agak fail...but who cares! I watch this solely for fun. Now to eat a handful of raisins to gain back the brain cells I just lost by watching this movie. Wish me luck.

In 10 mins ...

I'm gonna give a short review of the movies I saw for the past 2 weeks,

1. From Within

One of the 8 Films to die for(or so they say) this year, in comparison to Slaughter and Perkins 14, this is sorta better. Got some good scares, not bad cast, not bad death scenes and cool + bleak ending. So yeah..this is better than the other 2 I saw..oh Amanda and Michelle the twins in ANTM makes an appearance here..not bad acting at all.6/10

2. Butterfly Effect 3

And now another 8 Films to die for entry, after From Within I guess it wouldn't suck to watch the other remaining flicks. So Butterfly's next..is it better than the first one? nope. the 2nd? hell yeah. I dig this flick, acting was a bit blah..(Rachel Miner wasn't use to the fullest here) but the mystery was cool, eventhough I have suspected what the outcome will be ahead...7/10

3. LHOTL 2009

Lina dah review, coincidently saw near the same time. Me thinks this is one of the remakes I prefer from the original (like Dawn of the Dead and Hills Have Eyes)..it's better made and had a rocking cast. Sara Paxton rape scene sold me...I pitied her; which makes the revenge scenes more awesome 4 me to watch. 7.5/10

4. Ils a.k.a Them

Once upon a time Ajek urge me to see this before I watch The Strangers..I utterly loved The Strangers, it was weird and dark and me like the "Is Tamara Home?" line. Then finally I decided to watch this flick..and yikes! Great flick, me on edge near all the stalking scenes. It's creepy yo. And when the killers were revealed lagi lah aku nganga..and apparently it's based on a true story...yesh takut. Good good flick...better than Strangers, but might be on the same level as Eden Lake. 8/10

5. Ice Age 3

Tgk dengan makeup tebal cause Jurina asked me to. Good flick...worthy of my 1 and half hour. Good job bringing in a new character..Buck was cool.I dig him. errr rasa xda apa extra nak ckp. 6.5/10

more to come..the ones I sorta didn't like..

Iwan dah bukak blog

First thing I wanna say, Iwan nih the one and only kawan yg selalu aku sembang pesal movie semenjak sekolah menengah. Ada beberapa movie gak ah dah layan ngan dia all these years..antara paling memorable tgk Halloween 20 years later kot cause dia marah aku duk spoil time2 suspense akan berlaku (aku dah tgk in advance)

Juga though we do have our differences dia antara org yg recommend aku percaya ah..hello dia pon kureng ngan transformers 2 (JURINA JGN BUNUH AKU). Lagi apa yeh...ha dia nih juga aku enjoy sembang kisah movie masa sekolah menengah dulu cause dia suka reenact balik scene2 movie...antara lakonan berjaya dia adalah adengan Josh Hartnet dlm The Faculty with the line " You both take this", priceless....sangat sangat priceless.

Dia juga pernah wat topic controversy dlm forum limie dulu dgn tajuk "melayan movie kerana ikutan?" which I highly agree on most of what he has to say. Hmm apa lagi...oh dia juga got it why I pick Myfanny as a blog title..once upon a time ada org kata aku letak myfanny cause ramai org akan search fanny ergo stumble upon me blog...hmm ok whatever u say...yg aku tau aku bukan famewhore. The End.

IWAN RULES! Link dia ada kat kanan...under Iwan
