My Julie/Julia Project : 1 # 246

Hey peeps, whaddup! Here's an update from me life Astro movie channel is canceled..big boo hoo actually, but my own bloody fault to. I spend more on me lappie than in front of the tv, I can actually count how many movies I saw @ astro on a monthly basis. (2-3 at least) it's better to cancel it than pay rm40? for that 3 channels. At least AXN, FOX and Star World is still intact, I can live with those 3 channels,I hope..Anyhoot, I just recently realized that IMDB promotes list of movies from users of that site. I read through a couple, and they're pretty neato..most are pretentious but there are a few in which I deemed reasonable and fun...cause watching movies for me is mostly bout that...having fun fun fun looking forward to the weekends (*sorry can't help it)

So have a look at this list, I liked it with few exceptions but I can look away with those few weird choices (*cough Twilight)

I like this list, it's fun..non pretentious ..not really that artsy fartsy and pretty epic..It got some of my fav movie ever!..and again..some weird ones..So I figured..why not follow this list like what that red haired chic (name escapes me now) in Julie/Julia. It'll be some sort of a weekend project for me. But being reasonable to self, unlike Julie/Julia..I'll watch only one or two movies per week and only during the weekends. Weekdays are spent on tv shows..which is a lot..gotta cut off some. So last week I start the first movie..I picked Fallen..which I haven't seen before.

Fallen 1998

Kinda like Seven, not as great but it delivers. The villain was rad! him/it, Although at one point I did utter "how the hell is he gonna beat this bitch?"..the villain was just too amazing. Great power, and was well utilized...the scene where he was stalking Embeth Davids was well made, scary shit..not screaming scary but brrr scary. Oh and Embeth..pretty!..she still is anyway.
Denzel was cool, I don't think it was much a stretch for him..he basically plays this sort of character yearly. I like or hate it was cool. eer what else..Oh John Goodman was also cool..I normally see him as this funny big guy..but here he delivers his dramatic/rage scenes to a T. Finally that ending..I dug and hate it at the same time..I like the twist.Really like it..but I don't like ..erm how should I put it without spoiling...erm ok I'll just say this..A CAT?!?!?! yesh!

So good first movie in this 200 plus movie..a lot more to go.
Also would like to note, that a lot of my officemate have seen this movie before..weird..How could I have missed this gem? ..oh well

Next a hint

gonna buy me-self a..

dunno yet..
tapi my colleague sorang ni nak pi US dah training..manusianyer agak mmg ku mau order something...last time when another colleague went there, I got me-self my first ever 3D DVD..My Bloody Valentine..pretty actually it was a gift from a dude I know there..bagus orang tu...bkn selalu orang nak bagi aku hadiah..tambah benda2 aku suka...even my parents pon bagi duit je time birthday

anyway kali ni mau beli something yg aku rasa..aku rasa lah..kat sana jer ada..
choices came down to two

1.Classic Marvel Figurine # Cannonball

I have 4 now in my hands, dulu beli kat OU, lupa nama kedai..but kedai tuh dah lingkup kot and near close to taking my money along too..I got Phoenix, Nightcrawler, Polaris and Rogue. Cannonball is one of my fav mutie..I grew up with his team..The New Mutants..I honestly wanted Dani Moonstar but she's not available..and Cannonball is the second best in my opinion...lagipon look at that statue...awesome!

Need friend

2. Scream 1997 poster

Been wanting this a looooong time..tapi takut mau beli online then ship to Malaysia. Bob (the colleague) did say agak risky beli this one cause ada bakat I dunno about this one. Another colleague said buy jer both...which is ok gak. Dunno but I would really love to stick this poster in my room..Favourite movie kot.

Decisions - decisions..also..bila la pulak aku kena anto sana..confirm aku menggila kat kedai comic dan blockbuster dema.

It ended.. :(

Tau tak betapa susahnyer nak cari geng (in my clique that is) Pothead nak berwayang ngan aku?..semua dah terpedaya ngan Transformers 3 (pfft) each their own lah kot. Me, personally mmg suka fantasy matter how dorky it loose yourself in a fantasy world is fun man..dulu kecik2 mmg berangan Dungeons & Dragons or apa2 lah sewaktu ngannyer (Never Ending Story) Potter..mmg buat the inner child in me happy..way happy.

So the movie..xdalah panjang sangat aku nak review..aku tgk ramai dah tulis (cepat gak komer yeh..aku ingatkan aku sorang gila). But bagi aku start dengan nyatakan I don't read the book...malah I rarely read..aku visual person kot..entah..books tend to make me sleepy, except comics..comics are rad (I'm a dork I know)

Like the first Deathly Hallows, I love how the movie begins, we can feel the intensity that something is coming, everyone is in one is safe...bleak bleak bleak! (but it works for the movie)..then the search begins for the horcrux?...great pacing..not boring at all..but to call it action packed..don't think (white blinding light room scene)..but stuff do happen.

My favorite scene would definitely be, when Voldemort whisper in the Hogwarts student ears basically demanding em to bring forth Potter, brrr much? The fear was was then I realized these KIDS are in it for real...then comes the battle..and what a mighty battle it was..from the shield spell conjured from the Staff/Teachers up till the end..when..ok aku stop.

However there is one thing I would like to see more, I would like to see more of the casualties in action..I know only one who's gonna die (I repeat I don't read the book)..and I was hoping to at least see he/she fight till the end..the dude/chic was sorta a big side character for crying out loud. What they gave us is just the bodies and the people around em mourning..HOWEVER...the dude/chic in question did have an aaaww nice scene with his/her (letih kena type camnih) sibling before the battle starts..which was actually kinda nice.

Ok before I end, cause I promise this will be short..Maggie Smith's (aku tak ingat nama character) scene "I always wanted to do that!"...really really cracks me up!...I laughed out loud reaaaall hard...cause I really didn't expect that. Ok tu jer...anyway thanks did well...all 8 movies was a-ok for me..sniff.


Movie # 1 : Razli and Pam?
Movie # 2 : Razli and Pam?
Movie # 3 : Razli
Movie # 4 : Sister
Movie # 5 : Jurina kan?
Movie # 6 : Confirm Jurina
Movie # 7 : Jurina (updated!..salah! ngan Cousin cici)
Movie # 8 : Cuzz Eda..thanx doll!

Dah separuh tahun dah...erk

Time passes by huh, sedor sedor dah half a year..
Lets recap shall we?

This is the part that Dela joked about

First movie saw at the cinema this year was Season of the Witch, first movie to come out normally tend to suck..but like last year's Legion..I was ok with Season of the Witch, it didn't suck..popcorn movie for me, enjoyable..but then Dela the Dodo came and ruin the movie for me by mocking the "She's not a witch..she's not a witch!" scene for me (actually the way she exaggerate it..was pretty funny)..Anyway I would say so far this year the movie offerings were pretty impressive, some movie I dissed early on turned to be good and vice versa (babi kau Red Riding Hood!)

So Now let's break it down
The Sucky Ones


Already half way in I have my most barf worthy movie of the year..which was Priest. Were the makers high or something? Thank god I missed it at the cinema...rm11 sekarang hard to come by you know. Oh Paul Bettany and Cam Gigandet..should really consider new agents, their choice of movies sucked..hard.

About to get pinch...yeow!

Speaking of Cam..saw The Roomate? consider yourself lucky. It's a lame attempt on a more modern feel to Single White Female..SWF was cool..great acting with one cringe worthy stabbing scene. The Roomate just fell flat on both..the villain was piss poor..her best attempt was pulling out a belly ring, ouch?maybe..hardcore? hell no...and then came strolling in Red Riding Hood..I thank my lucky stars I didn't go nuts and watched this movie @ the cinema..such a letdown..on paper (or poster to be exact) looks got a Sleepy Hollow feel to it..but when you watched it..let's just say it's a train wreck..the movie lost me after the wolf started communicating with the lead telepathically. There are a few more..but lets just leave it till the end of 2011. (psst Pirates kinda sucked too)

The Not Too Shabby Ones


A LOT of good (not great yet) movies this year. I love your typical popcorn movie which just deliver the fun..and nothing else..sometimes that's all you need..entertainment. Just Go With It and No Strings Attached were two of my cool comedy movies this's not mind blowing..but it delivers..I wanted to LOL..and I got it..done!

Yang kanan tu..xoxo

Next the flashy movies..the boom boom boom but still fun movies...I Am #4 though some say suck..I find it enjoyable..and the other # was pretty cool (read:hot)..though the title needs some improvement, # 4? scary. Then we have Battle LA..which delivers..with some quiet intense scene..I love the final was cool eventhough it was overly..american. Unknown was also a cool movie..Liam Neeson does know how to pick good action movies (for his age).Lastly there's Fast 5..logic's a fun movie..and who wouldn't pay to see Vin vs The Rock?!?!?

Other worthy mention are..Quarantine 2 (american) in which I originally dissed because of the poster but ended up kinda digging it. The Tunnel, Vanishing on 7th Street (who a lot hated..but I found spooky), Paranormal Activity 2, Souce Code, Attack the Block (fun weih cita nih) and a few more..which if I mention will add more babbling lines in here. (psst Mars Need Mom is pretty nice..but they really need to work on those Martian..not appealing!)

Yeeah now we reach
The Awesome Ones!


Let's start with this..early this year..been waiting like a mad dog for 3 films...2 have come out..1 left. The 2 were Scream 4 and X-Men First Class. I clawed my way to watch this movie early (I'm weird like that)..Scream cause it's from my fav movie EVER!..and First Class just cause mmg an X-Men fan since early 90s...Both delivers..Scream4 might be slightly bias..but whatever..I love it! First Class, now when news it's coming out..I was skeptical due to the line up..for the First's pretty a letdown (angel? come on!!!)..but put that was ok..janji they had Havoc and Banshee! woo! add Polaris in the next film and I'll be very happy.

Thor was an unexpected surprise..I diss it earlier..cause I don't like most of the Avengers..they're an ass. So I didnt watch it until the 3rd week I think and boy was I happy. Another movie I didn't expect to love so much is Super 8..great movie that one.

And finally before I end..I wanna add Insidious and Seru to the list.(a few more tapi end year lah) Both not really in my radar..only saw it by chance but was blown away by it. Seru ..a malay movie actually delivers a solid horror flick..and Insidious..was just downright scary..which took me awhile to recover from...that's it..see you again end of year...

p/s : mlm nih tgk Potter!..hooyeah!

The Dark of my Ass

Helloooo there!
Like many other normal movie lovers, I've watched Transformers 3.
But due to my constant bashing bout Transformers / Micheal Bay's work pre watching it..I guess Lord Michael Bay cursed me.
You see..I only watched like 1 hours worth of Transformers 3..why?..let me tell you why.

Left : Why!!!!aren't u in this movie ; Right : All hail Lord Bay..pfft

Firstly I got the venue fault actually..I was so used to Midvalley I automatically concluded that the show (which a friend earlier booked) would be there..15 mins before the movie starts none of those peeps appear..of course I called em to check where the heck are they..and...they're at the Curve..I realized I'll be 20 mins late..which is okay for I zoomed there as fast as I could with my very slow but reliable car. True to form I reached 20 mins late.

Now here's another thing, whenever I'm late or a friend is late..I normally leave the ticket at the collection counter..I asked the dude there if there's a ticket under my name..there's two (which is correct cause I came with a friend)...under the name Rezo..I'm like *dela wat lawak bangang apa lak nih*...but it is close right? The difference is just a I took it..went into cinema 6..and being the very nice movie goer that I am...I just walk right to the front and picked the 2 empty seat 2 rows from the front (cause I don't wanna bother people..I was in fact late) expected the movie already started...

Beforehand I was told by a couple of people that the length would be like 2 hrs 30 doing me maths I've missed 30 mins of the show..still hot enuff...but watching the movie...something was fishy. All the newly addition characters were pretty much established..Dampsey was already bad..some robot name Sentinel is already there...and the one that is not Megan Fox is already a girlfriend. However I figured that's Michael Bay being lazy. Oh btw I came in just right on time to see Optimus exiled to space. Then the war begins...and then an hr later...the movie ends. Imagine my confusion! My friend was confuse as well..and I pitied her cause she was actually wearing a transformers t-shirt..she was THAT excited. So we looked at the ticket and notice this movie session starts at 8..I was suppose to be in the 9pm session..WTF right?

Then I see Dela whatsapps me asking where I was (after 1 hr baru cari la?)..she said she was in cinema 10. The option now is leave..or join Dela..but the thing is..if I joined Dela and the others..I'll be watching the same last hour by then..not worth it. So left..sadly. Only yesterday after Dela called..I found out that she was holding the ticket and was waiting for me to call. ok 1. I don't call people when I know they're in the's unethical (cewah), ok I have 1 only. So apparently I took someone's else ticket..which coincidentally was sharing nearly the same name I had...(you see!..Lord Bay don't want me to watch Tran3!!!)..and that's the end of the story..I'm still pissed..granted it's only Trans3..a movie I wasn't really diggin but wouldn't mind seeing, but since I already bought the ticket I would at least like to watch 90% of the movie...haih..rugi rugi. I don't know if I'll be watching Trans3 again...depends on the friend that tag along with me that day..If she wants..I won't mind. Apa-apa..I'm so gonna book Harry Potter on my own.

As for the last 1 hr of Transformers 3..I was actually diggin it..The action scene was rad!..that collapse building scene was solid. Also I love the fact that humans actually did some damage to the least they didn't roll over and died. However the new chic sorta sucked..her job is to scream and deceive Megatron..which was laughable. Where's Megan Fox?!??!?! That's it.
