Well we're nearing the end now..and it's that time again where we look back on what's hot..and what's not..since I only do the top 10 best/worst movie in January, I'll do something else..to build up to January's post..can?
Since the Dawn of mankind I've been a fan of cinema, younger years was spent going to the cinema getting awed by the images shown like the first time I saw a really lifelike dinosaur roaming Jurassic Park or watching The Blue Diva singing her lungs out in Fifth Element..those memories stick out like a sore thumb every time I wanna reminisce. Now this year..I finally decided to jot down movies I saw at the cinema (I'm a freak I know) cause honestly..it's harder for me to remember stuff nowadays..with work and all (old age)..so here..I give you the
15. The hottest of em all Milla jumping of the Citadel in Resident Evil Afterlife
Ahh Milla-Milla you can never go wrong in my book..Resident sorta sucked balls storywise but it made up with it's cool action sequence and not too shabby fx. In the cinema scene most stuck out for me is definitely when you took a dive from the Citadel..running away from the Horde of zombies..heck I even whispered "hot!" to me friend beside me when you did this...aah Milla...always and forever...love ya!
14. Kris got sliced and diced in A Nightmare on Elm Street 2010
Also not the best movie this year...it's just ok...but the kid in me really wanted to see Freddy (even though it's not Robert Englund) on the big screen. Unfortunately the new Freddy..was just...too short!..and not that menacing...HOWEVER..it was really a treat watching the re-imagine of Tina getting hacked in the original Nightmare...and Kris(the remake Tina) is a hottie!..yeay!
13. A-Team impossible tank scene
Didn't really watch A team back in the day..but I do know of it. The movie was cool enough but the most memorable yet unbelievable scene is when the team got stuck in a tank and is free falling from the sky. What they did to survive?...Shoot out cannons from the side to maneuver the tank so that it'll fall into a nearby lake..wow..why didn't I think of that?
12. Potter and Hermoine in the buff in Deathly Hallows Part I
Saucy!...never would have thought this would come out from the Potter franchise..granted it was only semi-nude but still...woah much? Movie is good though..but did you see em in the buff???? hehe
11. The Big reveal in Devil
Devil was a great flick...good scares, awesome story and not bad twist...it's been awhile where supernatural crap scares the hell out of me..they don't make ghost/demon flicks like they use to I guess. But Devil delivers...the scene that really made me jump is the end scene when It was revealed who the Devil inhabited...It's not really shock worthy...but the screaming Mimi beside me was so..SOOOOO loud! till even I jolt-ergo embedded this particular scene in me mind forever...
*will continue tomorrow..I hope
10. Usop running gracefully in Hantu Kak Limah
Hey, I love the character..what else to say? Him running while swaying his hand effortlessly is pure great acting in my book.
9.Overacting extra in Piranha not in 3D
Please do take note that censorship cut A LOT of scenes from Piranha..imagine my surprise when I saw the underwater ballet scene from an uncut version. And since that scene I saw @ my home screen it doesn't count (but believe me it should have if it wasn't cut @ the cinema)..anyhoots...lots to choose from this mighty fun movie. The scalped chick...Eli Roth got smashed! (woohoo!) but the thing stuck out the most is one of the extra's great acting chop during the massacre scene. I'll try to screen cap it when I get the chance. This dude really overacts...I can see him a mile away...and he wasn't even highlighted...he's like one of the backdrop extras..but I saw him, funny thing is when I was about to nudge Iwan bout this..he nudge me first!....seeeeee! great minds think alike...bwahahaha..ok tuh je.
8. The whole Buried experience.
Buried...a great movie that most Malaysian dislike...A LOT of people grunted when I came out from the cinema..seriously I'm confuse..are we watching the same thing? Well anyway...watching Ryan Renolds in a box for 90 minutes is a fun treat..it kept me glued to the story..and that's it..GREAT MOVIE..-n-
7. Susie Salmon's(like the fish) sister in peril from The Lovely Bones
Another wonderful story..and amazingly shot...plus well acted. But one thing stuck out the most is when Fish's younger sister was in danger of being captured by the killer..it was really well made..I was at the edge of my seat...(dah lama tak panic dlm pawagam yeh)..hence why it made the books this year.
6. Amputated Leg in How To Train Ur Dragon
Also a visually stunning flick..the backdrop was niceeeeeeee!...but one thing stuck out the most is when the lead kid found out that his leg got amputated..I'm like wow...Dreamworks went that far..kudos to em for being brave...that was really a silent and heartbreaking scene for me...
and for tomorrow I'll complete the final 5 fav scenes in Cinema 2010

Baboon lah Hantu Kak Limah Balik Rumah, funny bergolek.
Aku mmg a fan of Zombi Kampung Pisang, at least the first half of it. I even pegged it to become a cult classic...tapi skrg dah capai tak status tuh entah lah.
Ia lawak bodoh lah jugak...tapi lawak bodoh yg aku terima..ntah pesal...maybe too over the top sampai I couldn't care less dah? maybe. Maybe juga cause slang nyer Perak..in which aku masih guna sampai skrg secara tak sengaja even though slang aku tuh tak lah dlm sangat..once a Perakian always a Perakian kot.
That's one thing lah in Hantu Kak Limah aku suka...bila dengor slang2 Perak..like for example :
"Ce cita, ce cita"
Baboon aku terus gelak kuat...teringat time aku kat Ipoh or Kuala Kangsar sembang ngan my sis or the cousins...mmg the exact starting line aku guna selalu..dem. Pastuh the over the top characters...love em...Usop..from Zombi Kampung Pisang is back..dan mmg aku mengharap dia ada...dia the bomb! Sapakah mamat belakon cerita nih weih?! Give him the best supporting actor award!...NOW NOW NOW..juga ingin bagi brownie points kat Mamat Khalid kerana memikirkan such an over the top character yg bagi aku x mungkin director Malaysia lain akan fikirkan..typical nyah mmg selalu ada...but Usop...brings nyah to a whole new level!...x lupa characters2 pelik yg lain, mamat bawak van spital; mamat bulat tuh..even Kak Limah..u people were good!!!!!...even the extras...depa nampak sangat bkn pelakon but for this movie...it works.
Style oklah kot...camera letak depan muka tuh (aku xtau term dia, sue me) time org2 lain tuh was use a lot of time...it worked..but agak banyak sangat. Dan ada part yg bagi aku lah...dragging skit BUT at least halfway cerita nih masih interesting gak ah (unlike Zombi Kampung Pisang). Cerita lak not bad..at least ada lah kasik twist skit kat ending nun...ada lah gak dia cuba.
Oh last thing nak tambah anak mamat khalid tuh at least kali nih dianyer scene lawak lah gak...walaupon ter-over banyak lak dianyer stay..scene aku nyatakan ialah tetiba dia tembak dlm balai raya..bodoh sangat...teringat aku film Jaws lak tetiba..ahaha. Ha that's another thing gak...love the some reference to some past movies...I mean Close Encounter with the 3rd Kind???? fahhhhney!...
Overall I enjoyed it...aku juga kagum ngan diri sendiri kerana tgk 3 film Melayu kat wayang this year...wow banyak..malah ada gak yg over terkejut dengor aku tgk film nih kat cinema...eh if got some level of quality...why not kan. Good movie..usha lah

Masyuk aku bulan nih..got more free tix..Another not in my radar tix..Warrior's Way..and it was sorta-kinda-leaning towards sucking. Mainly cause personally I think it tried way too hard..trying to be deep but it ain't. Even the FX looks forced for me..stunning at times but tried too much...there's nothing more I can say except avoid...unless u like the leading dude..or cute baby..cause the baby in here was to die for! mucho cuteness

The first scene of Social Network introduce us to Mark Zuckerberg the soon to be (the current timeline in movie) of Facebook...he was talking to his then girlfriend blah blah, and I was in panic mode. The dude talked fast...it's like bam bam bam bam and double bam..I thought to myself if this continues for the rest 1 hr 50 mins..I'm doomed! doooooomed! I hate movie with lot of facts..sure throw me some long interesting conversation here and there but ultimately I'll lose interest.
However! the flick was totally interesting..in a million years I wouldn't have thought a movie bout the origins of Facebook would get me hooked. The story behind facebook creation was interesting, I thought it was just a bunch of dudes get together having a blast and thought "hey!, let's create a social network on9!" and that's it...boy was I wrong..DEAD wrong....there's a long thought process behind it which I find really interesting...heck I uttered "wow!" to Milo a few times during Mark's rant...and then whisper sweet2 love word to Dela (bwahaha merepek sat)
Another interesting point bout the movie is Mark himself..if Jesse Eisenberg portrayal of Mark hits the spot..then Mark is a douche-dick-a-hole, but I actually like him too..it's a love-hate thing I guess. Hate his whatever-I'm right attitude but really love his snippy comments. Another great character is the co-founder Eduardo..though he is actually pretty much useless as a FB creator..I did feel sorry for him.
On the downside, you really gotta be prepared for this movie, I saw this @9pm after working 9 hrs, and then waiting in office for additional 3 hrs, plus the jam session in KL for an hr...it pretty much hurt my movie experience cause I was mad tired. So please see the movie when ur fresh. Another thing..but this is more on a personal note...I really blank off when people start talking bout stuff I don't like or care much...like stocks, equity and yada2 in those lines. We got a couple of scenes bout that in the movie and I was boreeeeeeed...technically it's not the makers fault...but like I said...personally, I don't need those sort of yapping scenes.
I end with this definitely a great flick..best movie this year? Probably ..beats the hell out of Inception if u ask me. OH and thank you JomSocial for the 6 free tix!...u made 5 people very happy...and a McD kid. -n-

Wasn't the first choice..but during the chaos / indecisive state everyone was in..we opt to watch Unstoppable..I've had seen it before but whatever lah..it is in fact a pretty solid movie. The night was for Kecik anyway..not me.. (but if it was up to me I would've love to see Skyline)..Anyway the night made me miss watching movie with u chaotic people..it was fun watching Unstoppable with these peeps cause their reaction is pretty much over the top..take one scene for example...
Chris Pine was in trouble, he needs to pin the two trains together..he kick and kicks and whadouknow...he fell..
Mills and Dods screamed automatically!..pretty high pitched..faced covered and all..the odd thing is...they're the only ones who made any noise during this scene. What follows were some snickers and punching towards my very delicate shoulders..*thanks milo..I consider the bruises as a love bite.
When asked why the reaction; the reason they gave
"Chris Pine hot...xmo dia mati.."....eh bengong sungguh komer nih...
p/s : take it from someone who viewed it twice..the movie is still rad.

Didn't actually love the first episode, but due to the fact it's really rare for a zombie tv series to appear on the tube, I held on..and now after ep 4...yummmmmmmmmmm. I love The Walking Dead. The drama, the chaos, the zombies, the gore!...all mix in a 40+ min show. LOVE IT..though it does get toooooo dramatic to me at times..but whatever. Walking Dead is a keeper! And in other news Supernatural season 6 is mighty boring...what's up with that?

And to think Unstoppable is the best movie this month..Potter was cool, love it..the previous one was lukewarm but this...this one..a gem. I'll just mention the cool stuff (for me) in the movie. 1. Helena Carter = LOVE! 2. Fluer is back! = LOVE GAK! 3. Someone I loathe died! yay!..but he/she/it death scene was pretty well made till it made me sorta sad, sorta. 4. Quite a Dark movie, that Bathilda? hag..scary. 5.The story telling scene bout the origin of Deathly Hallows..nice! 6. That bitch in pink..aiyo I forgot her name is also back...ooo how I loathe thee. 7. With all the chaos there's still some funny bits in the movie. 8. Harry + friend are all grown up...awwwwww...tuh jer kot..ha tuh jer lah...whatever it is..Deathly Hallows 1...good!..also good build up for the upcoming battle for the 2nd one..now here's hoping no one I really like dies (luna luna luna!)
Since in topic I like, upcoming issue in Feb is bout another alternate X-men reality...sigh..but the only thing made me xcited was the cover which includes Psylocke in her original brit body...wowowowo..dah finish mengarut. MESRA .

Brings back memories!...thanks to big bro for taping it and letting me watch it non stop when I was younger....
Posted by thanezra at 12:06 PM
Earlier this year saw this movie titled The Final, pretty good flick bout the loser kids seeking revenge on the cool kids...it's pretty basic, trap the cool kids, torture em and then...well wont spoil u the ending. Torture scenes was just ok...not up to par with Hostel or Saw...but it'll do. Best thing bout the movie is the torturer's acting...love every single one of em...recommended
Then a month back was intrigue after noticing this movie 13th Hour on my fav "muat turun" site.Two things stood out, 1. From the makers of Dog Soldier. 2. Tom Fenton. Good marketing strategy since Harry Potter is just round the conner. It's a brit movie which makes it much harder for me to understand their very deep slang, but putting that aside...it's a solid monster movie with a bunch of teens being stalked in their own mansion by a smeagol looking beast...oh but if u think Tom Fenton will be featured through the whole movie (since he's credited like 3rd?)...ur sadly mistaken..hehe..but he does play a quite important role. Anyways not as awesome as Dog Soldiers, but it still delivers
Lastly, cik Lina mentioned this movie which looks mighty fine, and knowing lyna movie should be a at least a bit brutal. It was...demnit ada adengan kuku cabut! brrr me highly sensitive when I see stuff like that. Its bout this one couple seeking revenge on the pedophile who killed their son...honestly didn't feel any remorse for that dude...that is...till the end!...good movie..highly recommended...
sometimes u really gotta watch out for these non released movie @ the cinema, u'll never know if it's a gem or not.ok thats it...sok pothead! yeah yeah yeah!!!! and yeah lagi!

A month back a team member gi US for training (time aku ENTAH LAH bila)..dengan itu aku kept whining kat Purak Patel (a team member base there) to buy me an original DVD from States. He concurred and bought me My Bloody Valentine 3D!...weheeeeheeee! my kind of movie..granted ia bukan the best movie ever...but it delivers...so jadi ah..beggars can't be choosers or so they say...yg penting this is my first 3D dvd...and can't wait to test it out!

Not taken by me, by Alia...this is such a cute picture taken by her..and it's pretty cool watching parents bringing their kids for these type of events..running/jog/roller blading/cycle together for a good cause. Am gonna say this is the second best event I went so far this year..the best was Nike Run. Tetiba post non movie related :P

Di mlm Halloween yg indah..sedang aku cari parking tuk pi Halloween party full costume intact (minus the fangs), seorang pak guard innocent datang ke arah kereta aku.
Pak gad : maaf yeh naaakkkk, takleh park sini...sini khas tuk pengunjung Saloma Bistro je (alololo sweet nyer ko panggil aku nak)
Kemudian tanyer mana leh park yg dekat dan more stuff that I can't remember...
Me : ok nak buat u-turn kat depan, terima kasih
Pak gad : Nanti dulu nak....ermm kenapa mata nak tuh...berdarah
Me : (dlm hati : ok kor innocent)...tak pakcik..nak gi Halloween party kat situ
Pak gad : Ha yeh lah tapi mata berdarah tuh..
Me : ha xpalah pakcik saya u-turn dulu (malas nak xplain detail..lagipon pakcik tuh innocent gila)
nasib lah aku tak pakai fangs aku siap2..mau tak pesal2 aku kasik cpr kat pak gad tuh mlm tuh...anyhoo the party was just ok...nyesal semangat waja nak pi..tuh je -n-

Guess what! me got tix to a Halloween party! wohoooo
It all happen one fine night, was driving to work and as per normal my phone was ready for any sms contest via radio. Radio host mentioned Halloween party...was actually waiting for any movie premier...but Halloween party sounds fun..so why not..I sms-ed and minutes later me phone rang..it was the dude on radio...yikes!
And yes he said I was the 9th sms-er through...but he's not ready to give me the tix yet...he asked me "if ur invited what would u go as?"
Me still in shock mode answered Pugsley Adams (cause last year I wanted to go as him).
Radio host was like whooooooooooooo?
Me replied the kid from Adams Family
After, he said ohhhhh...but he still wanted me to describe and answer why Pugsley
Me said "round-bald-pale face...as for why..its pretty easy to dress up as him"
Dude ask back..."does that mean ur round and bald?" (babi)
Me : "pretty short hair but I don't think I'm THAT round"
Then the dude asked me to sing the Adams Family theme..
I'm like waaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat
I just replied back "no sing...hum yes"
Dude : go for it
Me : humming like an ass (for those listening..im sorry for ur ears)
Dude : Ok Reza u got it!...(finally...arse sangat gi torture aku on air)
Now me planning on what to wear, Pugsley Adams IS easy but I was worried no one would know him. Last weekend planned to look for the basic black and white stripped shirt..but ultimately due to cuzz wanted to vamp up for the party...me decided to just be the basic Edward (shudders) ...dem I know...I'm gonna potray that sissy vamp...sigh. But what to do...however U'll never know, I might last minute run to any costume shop and just rent a toga..easy. Till end of week..later!

...tv2 dulu rajin tayang movie2 belah mlm...am antara yg semangat ah gak nak usha tambah if it's horror theme..ada certain movies nih sampai skrg stuck in my mind but terlupa nama tajuk (aku kecik lagi kot)..slowly..but surely ...me stumble upon a couple of those movies yg stood out for me masa tgk kecik2 dulu di bawah selimut.
Paling memorable bagi aku sampai skrg stuck mental imagenyer adalah scene di atas. Seorang makcik tua(aku mmg ada fetish terhadap makcik2 dlm movie)..berlari2 dari semut gergasi (yes semut gergasi silalah gelak)..tgh2 lari..dia paling kiri (kanan?) ada sekor kat sebelah dia..scene changes to the ant's point of view (hence the multiple views of the makcik)...makcik nih dgn baiknyer duk tegak dan jerit jer..berapa harakat I dunno..but it was long.
Zaman tuh mana ada internet..oleh itu..aku xtau tajuknyer..yg aku tau..ada Joan Collins...aku tau minah nih cause mak aku suka bebenor tgk Dallas..or izzit Dynasty. But that one information is enough, bila dah ada kemudahan net nih..maka berlayar lah aku ke imdb.com ..dan search tahun dan title yg paling possible sangkut ngan cerita itu...and what do you know..ada cerita bertajuk ants dlm resume dia...and sah empire of the Ants is the movie.
Tapi nak carinyer agak susah..only this year baruuuuu lah aku jumpa..dan view balik..and let me tell you..my god laughable cerita nih..cerita nih ke yg aku takut kecik2 dulu...yeeesh! My main criticism is the acting..yikes sangat. But apa2 pon akan disimpan cerita nih cause ia membuatkan aku teringat zaman2 kecik aku tgk movie2 seram sampai ke larut mlm dibawah selimut busukku. -n-

Earlier...I guess a year plus before, if you click the home link in FB..u'll notice a lot of survey or quizzes taken by our friends...it was pretty annoying no? Thank god for the option "do not publish" if not the home page would be bombed with everything. Anyhoot reason being me writing this is because once upon a time...one of the quizzes stood out from the rest. The title reads "What you need to survive a Zombie attack" (something like that lah)
Now THAT (tonasi tuh kuat skit) quiz I took. I list out as follows (if memory serves me correct lah):
1. Machine Gun
2. Shot Gun
3. Roller Blade
5. Dela Ahmad
1. Machine Gun : Bullet count is pretty important to me (cam yoyo je ada zombie invasion)..and bullet count equals many targets..plus! u can shoot freely and confirm at least a bullet would hit a target..fatal or not..thats another story.
2. Shot Gun : The feel and power of that gun amazes me. Ok I lied I never really touch one but it does look nice; held by any movie character. And the power can send a zombie backwards...heck it'll blow the freakin zombie heads away. Now that's a good weapon..also it looks sleek...yummm.
3. Roller Blade : Medium of transportation, but y roller blade? Well for one I can roller blade...not great but I can. Also it'll be sorta memorable...u know like those quirky memorable that stands out in the movies. i.e Full frontal punk chic in Return of the Living Dead...and more recent..Rose Mcgowan in Planet Terror. Like really? Machine Gun for a leg?...yum!
4. Grenade : Only use for Last Resort...cause I don't think I wanna go down alone.AND...it's pretty noble.KAN?
5. Dela Ahmad : At first it was me pissing Dela off. But now come to think of it...I do actually need her. Not as backup or anything..but as a scapegoat. I will no doubt push her towards the horde of zombies or use her as a shield. Mean no?...but thats survival of the fittest. (and before I talked bout being noble..BWAHAHA)...but in all honesty do you really think I would do that? I'm not really THAT mean right?...RIGHT????
Ah sudah aku bebel panjang lak...well actually what trigger this zombie appreciation post is cause I just recently saw 2 zombie flicks (1 actually 2 months back)...it's pretty good..and it's been awhile for a decent zombie flick to surface. Now all u get is vampires vampires vampire...blaaaagh! First movie which I saw a couple of months back was Dead Snow.
Dead Snow is about Nazi Zombies attacking a bunch of doomed vacationing people. It's pretty simple..so's the story. However considering the qualities of recent horror flicks..specially the zombie department..this did good. Had ample scares..great munching and tearing people apart scene and also!...there's a movie buff character in it..always a plus for me (remember Randy from Scream franchise?love him) At one time the dude was asking "what other movies where a bunch of people get killed off one by one in a remote place"...I was like me me me!...but then a chic answered "April Fools day" and and....god If that was real..I would have dry hump her.kidding!..but yeah...I would love her..AHAHAHAH..anyway good movie. (btw its a Scandinavian movie)
And lastly..last weekend. I saw this French Zombie flick the Horde.Bout a bunch of people trapped in an apartment and then all hell breaks loose when people started coming back from the dead. It's always like this for a zombie flick huh? people trap...but it still works...what else can be done anyway? Zombie harvesting humans?.This movie is decent as well...I specially like when one dude went one on three zombies with just his bare hands...gila powerrrr! Also the heavy usage of guns in this movie makes me happy. Ada machine gun action..wohooooo!..oh oh the zombies look are also pretty rad...but in the end...the movie is pretty pointless.For me the way it ended was like..pfft!...but still it's an a-ok movie...bring on more zombie flicks plssssssssss! no more vamps...NO MORE!

I can confidently say that pretty much all the movies released for the past 4-5 weeks back was pretty dope. Seriously, every week there's one horror flick..started with Piranha then Resident Evil Afterlife and THEN Devil which rocks so much it hurts...the chic beside me screamed till me ears bled (true story , not the bleeding part though) but The Devil really really delivers; I was in suspense mode near all the time and the twist? Not too shabby...didn't see that coming.
Now last week after Elmo's open house, me being the usual kiasu guy...booked movie tix for the weekend like nobody's business (fav HSBC staff word..go figure). But didn't really invite anyone this time, except for my ever reliable movie go-er cousin of mine. Cakap or sms jer "jom wayang" 90% of the time she would say yes, senang..easy, breezy beautiful...xyah drama2 nunggu jawapan org. So after Elms place..I went, a couple of MMU friend came as well last minute...oh I forgot the movie title..It was the Hole..I was excited to see this cause it was made by Joe Dante.
Since It is Joe Dante's product I expect the movie to be pretty mild in the scare-fest department but at least enjoyable...u know..Gremlins? So it started out pretty cool...reaction for audience was cool..we hear whispers/whimpers/laughs here and there...and I gotta admit..some parts really did spook me. It was intriguing as well...The Hole..the heck is that thing?..what's the mystery surrounds it?...but THEN...halfway through the movie...MASYALLAH...stress! it went spiraling downhill.
Bila everything was revealed it was pretty...meh? And all the ghost..spooky clowns got ridiculous. Maybe I was asking too much..since it does look like the movie is targeted for kids. Iwan even mentioned it looked like an episode from Goosebumps which I totally agreed on. By the end of the movie you can tell that the whole cinema was pretty much in disbelief cause halfway till the end...no one talked..it was total silence..pretty a rare scene for a cinema in Malaysia. Oh..and I even said sorry to Iwan for the movie I chose (Iwan wanted the Devil..tapi Hello aku dah tgk..lain kali book sendiri) Overall...it started out really good..I was intrigue but then...WTH...oh and the fantasy world really didn't work for me..pretty meh

Dear Milla Jov,
Since Fifth Element me thinks u - r pretty much a hottie. Me even like to quote regularly your Multipass scene to those who understands / just for the fun of it.
Then came Resident Evil. ..
U in that Red dress = a sight to behold...woof! And when you did that 360 kick to that devil dog...double the woof!..u were born to be Alice. I thank Paul Anderson for casting you..but I won't thank him for marrying u..that lucky dog.
2nd Resident Evil came and u still kick ass, unfortunately the 2nd installment was sorta a letdown for me....but I still remember u running down the building...woah much?
3rd resident evil came and ur still hot...however u tried to act in resident evil 3...seriously a no-no...u only excel in kicking butts...less the dialog the better...oh and whats with the constant flawless skin in the 3rd installment?...ur afraid of Ali Later stealing the show? plssss...no contest.
Now the 4th, was so xcited to see it I book the show for 1st Syawal at gardens in glorious glorious 3d!...and it was great. I thank you Paul Anderson again for losing the clones cause seriously it was such a drag...even Milla Telekinetic powers deserve to go...it made her TOOOO amazing....after all of those crap was canceled me started to enjoy the show...it gets better when milla reached the citadel and boy did she kick a lot of ass there...love love love. I remember whispering Hot to AJ 3 times in reference to Milla...cause lets face it....u -r HOT. Thought RE4 isn't actually that hot...bottom line is....u rock my world...now make more RE movie...but please don't gain any more powers. And I hope u kick Jill's ass.
Yours forever (pfft),

Let's reflect shall we?
Ramadhan ini tahun better dari last year in sense of penghayatan, cause last year xda wujudnyer shift siang lagi. At least kali nih shift siang leh lah aku gi terawikh then weekend jadi time tgk wayang :P. Yang pasti banyak lagi lah terawikh aku gi tahun nih..semua 8 rakaat jer..tak sanggup aku stay sampai 20, mau otak mengelamun fikir2 lawan space aliens lak a.k.a tak kusyuk.
Parents aku, aku agak kagum near everyday pi..buat 20, tambah kagum mak aku..kitorang nih bkn lah kuarga yg very the religious..tapi aku tgk parents aku tahun nih..wow..impressive. kudos . ayah aku as usual tiap2 petang gi bazaar ramadhan..aku xnah join cause aku bkn jenis nak mkn sangat kuih muih nih..come to think of it thn nih aku tak gi bazaar ramadhan langsung..wow.
Rumah...mid ramadhan tetiba nak drama...ada pipe pecah..plumber lak berzaman nak datang..bila dah maih..kata raya ke-5 jer baru leh baiki...fineeeee. aku lak cuak cause kena kuarkan duit lagi damnit! mana xnyer kereta aku elok nak drama gak so kena service (tapi nasib tak mahel bebenor) pastuh ada lah beberapa benda lagi aku tak ingat apa dia...yg pasti bank acc aku as of now level mengerunkan. sigh..nih lah akibat keje ngan company non muslim base.
Baju raya? arituh tempted gak nak beli masa hangout ngan Iwan, dia yg nak cari sebenornyer...secretly aku said to myself..kalau hang beli baru aku beli gak..but Iwan tak beli lak last2 cit. So thn nih no new clothes...tapi x nangeh pon..bknnyer aku selalu pakai baju melayu..it doesn't show off my curves..eh?Yg ada pon kasut baru jer ah kot...memula nak beli dua..satu tuk kojer..but masa shop aduh mahelnyer kasut2 skrg...dan i was in the market for branded shoes this time..x larat dah pakai kasut aku main taram jer beli cause cheap dimana last2 aku tantrum sorang bila kasut tuh ketat kat depan ke apa etc. Jln TAR? hahaha no...maaf aku tak typical.
Wayang? masihhhh tgk, Splice yg hot enuff (cerita zaman2 muda miker nice), Expendables yg pening aku tgk Stallone poyo..dan Piranha yg aku gila sangat enjoy sampai rasa nak wat mexican wave dlm pawagam. Swim...masih, tak kisah lah makruh tak..tuh jer benda yg leh wat aku keep fit..tapi sekali tuh agaknyer aku over sangat tetiba badan kejang tgh2 swim..cam mamat dlm movie Can't Hardly Wait tuh, yg jerit I Can't feel my legs! ha camtuh lah perasaanyer.
Kuar mkn..kali tiada buffet..bagus gak..wat rugi duit jer sebenarnyer. Tapi ikhlas aku ckp aku duk nunggu ah gak bebudak bainun nih cam "eh jom berbuka reramai"..tapi xda berita..so whatever. 3 kali jer ah kot berbuka luar..twice ngan rerakan MMU satu lagi ngan ibu jer cause ayah drama arituh (don't ask)
Kampung? HAH! tak balik this year..rasa first time ever tak balik langsung Ipoh or Kuala. rasa janggal gak, tapi since abg kat ipoh turun sini..xpalah kot..at least immediate family semua kat sini. Save duit raya aku gak...tapi dem x dapat beraya umah teacher aku yg aku lawat every year.
Hence Syawal aku rasa moderate lah kot thn nih..mungkin akan sucky, but I'll try to make the most out of it...anak2 buah ada..leh bully miker..fun gak tuh. Juga aku dah plan tgk resident evil afterlife raya pertama..hot tak? ticket pon dah book. So kepada pengunjung blog nih jika masih ada...aku ngucapkan Selamat Hari Raya maaf zahir dan batin..u know...the usual stuff. Kepada yg drive jejauh, drive leklok yeh...dan kepada yg naik jet pulang Sarawak tuh, kim salam kat kek batik sarawak.
p/s : open house xtau ada idak..akak aku cam malas wat this year..we see how.

Ok currently watching Scream Queens, a reality series which was made known to me on MTV. And since I'm into screaming queens (not those sort of queens), horror and a reality show junkie..I was sooo unboard. Last season tak tgk full sangat, cause you know MTV timeslot kekadang entah apa2..and with my work shift and all makes it harder for me to watch it religiously. Last season's winner was Thanidra (i think that's how its spelled), she had a minor role in Saw 6 and would be returning for the next installment, honestly she did sorta bad in Saw which was surprising cause I really dug her in Scream Queens. Anyhoot i'm watching in real time (sorta) ep 3 of season 2 Scream Queens now so here goes
Begins with a recap of last ep which shows how badly Dela..oh btw am gonna name the contestant anything I want cause I find it much easier that way..continuing on, Dela (go figure) had 2 bad weeks in a row, last week she wanted to try harder a look at the outcome (see pic above)..what the hell is up with the headgear (they had to make their own costume)
Meanwhile, Whatsherface had problems standing out eventhough she ate raw meat (below) in last week's director challenge, which was impressive but still she fades in the dark. (no X factor kot). But it was Shorty that got the axe due to her lack of enthusiasm.
Show begins with Dela whining bout Shorty (they're BFFs) and more whining from the other bottom of the list actress; Cuttie with Jugs(below)..she's in the bottom due to her not so fast ability to cancel out her ChicAAgo slang. Hey I have no problem bout it...but u know it's what the director demands..so..Anyway other chix in the house-surprisingly (cause it's a competition)..is helping CwJugs with her accent.
tak penting tak penting tak penting and WALA we are now entering the acting challenge. Hostess; Jaime King (undeserving if u ask me) is there explaining what they have to do this time. The challenge is for the chix to tell a story by movements which then will be translated to the big screen, u know..like how Smeagol is created. First up was Shaniqua (below 1st pix), did decent..well actually near all of em did good enuff with exception from CwJugs..but there are standouts..like Dela (below 2nd) which surprises me due to her past performance..I guess she does listen..good for her. Another standout is Jenna (3rd below) which did a cartwheel instead of jumping out of the window..the others all opt to just jump out of the window..but that doesn't sit too well with Jaime King
Jaime King said it didn't fit with the story..which for me is pure bullcrap. I guess Jaime King is just jealous she can't do cartwheel. I don't see any wrong in doing that, baaah Jaime King (bring back Shawnee!) but what follows after Jaime's comment is one of the funniest facial expression from I've ever seen in the series (refer below)..it's like "ok i'm pissed about ur comment but keep it together try to smile-try to smile...wave if u have too". U know what I've would done the same..and bitch later..(oh p/s: Dela won the challenge)
..which is what she did in confessional!..haha. I'm with her though..what she did shouldn't have really been ridiculed.
Then comes the acting coach James Homa..this dude scares me. I don't think I can get along with this dude. Anyhoo this weeks acting is about just crying on q..which was understandable hard for all of em. But after much coaching and evoking emotions most of em shed tears..except whatsherface cause she was trying way too hard (history :she's been trying too hard to stand out in previous eps) and sausage lips who just can't cry (weirdo). Stand outs were surprisingly again Dela, and Jenna for coming out with a LOL comments about crying when Homa mentioned having babies, she cried cause she don't want any!
Then more whining and crying from what's her face cause she didn't stand out again..I feel for her really..but suck it up woman!
Today's ghastly surprise is a bloody box..which moves. Understandably, the girls didn't really wanna open that box..but did eventually..while reading what's inside..a sinister looking clown appeared from behind scaring the crap out the girls. but seriously..these girls were way too overacting bout being of the clown..and they all in unison sounded like a flock of seagulls while screaming which made me ears bleed..no more of these pls..i had enuff of screaming seagulls from ANTM.
Finally it's the director's challenge by Tim Sullivan, director of 2001 Maniacs 1&2. Challenge is for the girls to walk in presumably their house and found it's in total chaos due to excessive partying from her presumably housemate. They only have to say no in each scene but in different tone...angry (because house dirty) - angry - angry -shocked (found dead body) .. and scream as their co-star (maggots..yikes!)..drop on em. Yeah I would be screaming too..maggots..yeesh. No one really stand out for me this time..but CwJugs really really did bad (4 pix below) and whatsherface again tried wayyyyy too hard..doing wayyyyyyyy too much.
Judging time!...and shock me shock me...CwJugs and whatsherface is in the bottom 2. But before that the top performer..which was Jenna and Dela. While being praise Jaime King found the time again to recount the stunt Jenna did during the first challange.
And backflash to Jenna's cool facial expression after being criticize..BWAHAHAHA..love it...anyway Dela won..well deserve..she has indeed grown.
Now the bottom two..CwJugs is criticize bout her acting ability and that her real acting is her not showing how scared she really2 was about the maggots (forgot to mentioned that she has anxiety problems..and maggots triggered the problem that day)..as for whatsherface..yeah the trying to hard came up..which was sad cause she really really tried which looked force. So who goes? Really can't decide..cause kesian for whatsherface but CwJugs is good to look at..andddd..
Whatsherface got the boot, she really looked sad..but what to do..that's life. She left gracefully..good for her. Well I guess looks are still important..anyway..that's it..till next time!..if I get bored again...ta!
