It's that time again

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

Most Memorable Scene I saw at the Cinema 2010

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
*updated 12/30/10

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

Sapa suka cerita nih..angkat tangan cam saya

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

It's a no

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

He's a douche..but a genius one...so...

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-
