Face Off Ep 4

Lama tak review tv series, been watching quite a number but one show stood out like a sore thumb for me last week. Face Off is the show and it's episode #4..Face Off is a show bout fx's sorta like Work of Art where contestant create an art piece and the least liked would be sent home....ala if you read my blog you would know I love reality shows...Survivor, ANTM, still watching these shows and anything that's in the same line as em.

Lookie lookie bates motel!

So what's great bout ep 4...for one...the first 5 minute the host talked bout the challange; "Create an orginal movie Villain" (SUKA!)...she continues, "with me today is our guest judge...who produced more than 20 films...including Friday the 13th (!!!!!), Deep Star Six (!!!!!wow!!).." and then I automatically mumbled...Sean Cunningham??...dan it is him!!!...hoho a legend man...legend!...but I've never actually seen what the dude looks this is a treat!!!

Anyway I love this ep...the process of creating the villain was fun to watch..this includes the look, the poster and the tagline...yum yum yum!...I'll leave you with some screencaps of the outlook of the challange.

p/s : past challange includes alien creature design, nude art paint (yes nude) and and human/animal hybrid

Noroi The Curse 2005 - scary shit

Recommended by I recommend it..pretty freaky. Expected though since it's coming from the Japs...they do know how to make a horror flick. Noroi is like Blair Witch meets Ju-On..story follows a dude documenting a series of what at first looks like random supernatural events which later comes full circle in the end. There's a nice flow here,you'll end up like me going.. "ooooh ni yg tadi earlier blah blah blah yada yada hubba hubba..". The scares are definitely there..was freaking out specially when I sense something is about to happen (do wander your eyes around the screen..u'll see some "stuff"). Good thing is the scares don't rely on BOOM's more towards the atmosphere..brr
And then there's the Ju-On element...where u hear unwanted traumatizing sounds..I hate that, I slow down the volume everytime that happen. And then the ending...brrr...freaky last image...Do watch it people...but seriously..not alone

10 - 01

Yeah idle time in office..!so we continue

10.How to Train Your Dragon

This year animated movies agak gempak, ikutkan nak jer letak Despicable Me gak dlm list but alas all 20 spot have been filled..klu mau buat sampai 25 lak ngengada lah kan. Anyway..HTTYD, I like how mature this movie is, normally I would be like "Cartoon nak tgk wayang? Zaman dah lepas da" unless it's something yg should be good Toy Story..but going into HTTYD I felt the movie is generally for well...the general and me...over 50, over 30. I didn't really feel out of place watching this movie without a kid in tow. But honestly most animated movie feels really mature nowadays...well for this year maybe except Tangled. Hmm what else...ha then there's the dragon...way cute! Visual wise awesome! when Hiccup was riding on the dragon soaring through the sea ...woooah beautiful. And finally I love how the movie ended..pretty gutsy if you ask me.

Defining Moment : I love the final battle with the big bad dragon..and also the outcome of the battle


This was recommended by a friend of mine..Pam. Movie was marketed as a thriller..and it actually looked like a thriller. I'm basing this solely on the trailer and title, Catfish? intriguing...what is Catfish? Anyway after venturing through the movie...I'm like...errr Thriller lah sangat!..Personally It's more of a mystery flick made under the same vision of Blair Witch. The mystery was pretty cool ...but the journey of the lead dude in the movie is the main attraction. Supposedly this is a true story of a man's journey to meet his FB friend..I won't spoil anything else...the end.

Defining Moment : The admirer's lies and deception.

8. Piranha 3D

Yeah I'm into these sort of movies..this movie will never win any major award..but that's what I love bout it..It's made solely for fun..and fun it is...can't wait for the sequel...double Ds y'all!

Defining Moment : Underwater ballet...try topping that!


A modest flick..with a modest budget...that came out of nowhere looking like a B grade tv-movie flick...but when I finally got the chance to see it..I was impress. No doubt it does have a tv-movie feel in it (production wise) but put that's a great movie where you are rooting for the cast to live (like finally!..non annoying humans)...hmm what else..oh well like I's a simple flick with great

Defining Moment : Werewolf attack..the crunching noise is pretty..eeekk!


A flick I know a LOT of Malaysian didn't like..the cinema I was in..most of the people in it whine about the movie..and I'm like u kidding me? Like Frozen this is another highly simple movie but with high results. Granted the lead dude is only stuck in one place..and the whole movie is bout a dude in one place..I was still intrigue and felt tense the whole way...also like Frozen..I wanted the dude to live. Great great movie...double love

Defining Moment : Ryan Reynolds acting chops

5. Other Guys

The best comedy flic last year ever!..I was in tears!..Will Farrel again delivers a weird dumbass movie...that is beyond believable but works!...kudus...more of this type of movies please!!!!!!!

Defining Moment : Still a fav...the old lady scene...fuhneeeeeeeey!

4.Kick Ass

Another B-day movie...and I wasn't expecting this movie to came out of nowhere...and wasn't even marketed widely here in Malaysia. So boooo whoever marketed this wonderful was fun (my kinda movie), gory (my kinda movie)...and pretty smart (not really my kinda movie but a bonus). I love this flick than that wannabe what the hell is this movie about Scott Pilgrim (pui!)...and Hit Girl Rules! yeah!

Defining Moment : Hit-Girl against the gangsters @ the loft..yeah!

3.The Devil

Scare I was at this manage to make my skin crawl..brrr. Great settings great atmosphere...and the who's the devil plot made me glue to the screen. Plus the interesting folklore bout the Devil (hints of Shamalan) made me google the net searching if there's such ini berjaya in so many levels (no pun intended)...more frightening movie like this plsss...(dan tolonglah kuar kat Malaysia cepat skit!)

Defining moment : the reveal

2.Social Network

Interesting, factual and smart/sarcastic dialogue made this movie majorly watchable..this movie wasn't on my radar..I pass gas when I saw what was showing that week...then I watched it..and I was proven was RAD!..the movie made me feel smart..eventhough I really wasn't..but still a good feeling great movie..hope you win and oscar..but if uou didn't I really hope my #1 movie (though really unlikely)

Defining Moment : The first 5-10 minutes of the movie..I still love that scene with his girlfriend

1.Toy Story 3

The best Animated movie ever!..Toy Story never fail to impress..where sequels normally declines in quality Toy Story didn't..2nd was mightier than the 1st and the 3rd was superior than the 2nd. Movie is really heartwarming with some cute jokes thrown in there for laughs..and love the ending..sad...brought me to tears..nicely done.

Defining Moment : Thanks guys...waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

so that's all folks..ta

a double dose of Portman

Weekend lepas..booked The Rite..@ 3 places, Alamanda (if I malas mau jln jauh); Midval (fav spot..nuff said) and Pavilion (aku gedik). Ended at Midval...and guess what...somehow the counter dude said my booking has expired..and I seriously got pissed..seriously..the time was 10pm...shows @ 1245am...pehal lak expire? then the dude said The Rite will only be showing next week (this by now) check to and whaddayaknow...mmg xda dah listing for The Rite...bloody hell ok! sia2 nunggu tgh mlm booking merata...last-last cancel..with no notification lak tuh ...ur net system suck ok GSC....sucked balls!...ok now I want world peace..

So ended up watching No Strings Attached (Nat Portman + Ashton Kutcher)..not exactly my first choice, nor second...but what else is there kan? So unwillingly went into the cinema...sat down and whaddayaknow ... I sorta like the's not award (any) contender worthy good, but it'll least something to watch since the shows sorta sucked this past two weeks..nothing much I can add..just that I did laugh watching this movie...and at times I guess I did enjoy myself..that's the main purpose of going out that day

THEN..after numerous reviews, comments and tweets finally got the chance to watch Black Swan..y late? Cause I was dumb enough not to check if the movie quality is cinema copy or good quality..the quality has actually been good for some time watch it..and yeah love it...great movie..won't say my fav movie last year..but may be in the top 10 if I've seen it last the movie...really beautiful, the opening night show..specially the black swan dance was really impressive..seriously can see the intensity of that dance in comparison to Portman's earlier dance as a white swan. What else...ok the movie is also freaky at times...Portman's mom (hershy)? scary...Winona Ryder? SCARY!..I don't wanna add more cause Black Swan has been reviewed to death so let's just say...Black Swan is it!

An apology post to Lyn :P a tweet from Ms Lyn saying betapa sick nyer this one sick scene dlm a Serbian Film. Actually I've totally forgotten bout this movie leh? I only recommended it due to the gore + disturbing factor AND the LOL kill scene. Heck this one kill scene mentioned by Arrow in his top 10 memorable kills 2010 is the main reason that made me wanna watch Serbian Film...(if ur reading this Lyn...ia adalah the death by fellatio tu)...after recommending this I forgot about the quite offensive rape scene of a baby! ...which is definitely out there...(really really out there) sorry Lyn...oops...moh tgk wayang The Rite / Sanctum for the next movie day ok.. :P

p/s: I won't recommend this movie for the faint heart..and I don't actually think it's a good movie...near average ...BUT the movie is definitely perverted and sick

Vanishing on 7th Street

Ok earlier today, saw this movie titled Vanishing on 7th Street, pretty solid movie with a not bad cast (Hayden Christensen, John Leguizamo and the ever hot black chic Thandie Newton), used but still cool plotline, spooky villain...and well spooky flick. Luckily I didn't see this instead of Ghost Doesn't Exist last night...cause I'll hide under the covers I kid you not.

There's always something bout shadowy ghost figures/ or the darkness that freaks you out, and here we have lots of it.These figures actually freak me out (though be warn that sometimes the CGI is laughable) which brings back memories of such movie like Darkness /Darkness Falls (don't judge me, I like that movie..LIKE ye) or even Mimic (the dark figure standing still part). Oh there's also reference of that town where the whole townspeople vanishes into thin air(supposedly)..Roanoke (love that myth..remember Stephen King's Storm of the Century?)

Ah me forget the plot, it's bout the world suddenly blackout then leaving a handful of lucky enough people to be near some light, roaming the land. You see..people are taken one by one in the darkness..yum.

The Downfall? It's lacking in the Y...I suppose we're suppose to figure it out ourselves but I do wish they give us what in the world are those dark figures...oh and Thandie was fully show of her curves..seriously BOO!but overall pretty solid flick..
