My Julie/Julia Project : 2 # 228 and more stuff

First off, Salam Ramadhan to all..have a pleasant month. Now to the movies we go..last week was fortunate enough to be treated to Captain America, honestly not a BIG fan of Capt..he bugs me..heck even the whole Avengers team I don't like..X-Men is still my team. Anyhoot, Captain America the movie is pretty good, the 2 hours spent in the cinema went pretty fast..which is good for me. Story was pretty clear..straight forward...I hate when all the pro america thingy came up but what do you expect from a movie titled Captain America right? I like Chris Evans..he was cool..but I wish someone else was cast as Capt..Chris Evans is still Human Torch to me. The chic was cool I guess but her gun blazing scene was pretty impressive. Red Skull was great!..but I may be bias a bit cause I like Hugo Weaving. Oh oh Stan Lee's cameo was funny! took me a few sec to notice him..he looks older than usual As for Captain America as a character..he was cool, was made too squeaky clean but when the action takes place the dude packs a mighty punch,plus his shield throwing action was fun(was waiting for that)...erm yeah that's about it..wasn't really blown away by Captain America..but the Avengers trailer at the end credits looks AH-MAZING!...Loki's back! *shriek!!!!

Out of topic, ini adalah kelibat puaka celaka dlm pawagam yg angkat phone bebel dlm 10 minit tentang hidup...nak je terajang seat dari bakang tapi dia adalah seorang MAKCIK!!!!!!!

Later after that I saw Hobo With a Shotgun. Some Grindhouse movie project I guess. I didn't like it at first...but the second half grew on me. Gross factor was way up got guts, blown of penis etc. No one was spared in this movie, kids got torched/ rape (offscreen), a baby was burnt and nurses were hung to name a few damages that were done. I like watching great kills, those kids that got torch was pretty funny..seriously, the scene before they were killed cracked me up..but I don't actually like the burnt baby scene, fortunately it was done offscreen..I prefer babies to be off offscreen (not like Feast 2...sick sick!) Rutger was pretty cool as the Hobo but Gregory Smith for me personally was a weird pick..he doesn't ooze psychotic creep to me. Then the ending...lame. Overall movie was just ok for me...preferred Machete or Planet Terror more..

And now the Julie/Julia project; I saw movie # 228 which was ...


Unlike Fallen, I've seen this movie before in Ipoh. Why I decided to hunt this movie down is solely due to Catherine Zeta Jones very I'll just say awesome (cause it's Ramadhan hehe) training scene. Second viewing it still delivers, though now I find it extremely disturbing that Sean Connery was watching attentively from the side...brrr. Back then I use to think this movie was the shit..but now...the story was pretty crappy, the first 2 heist was pretty cool (solely thanks to Zeta) ..but the last Heist was kinda lackluster plus it's amazingly illogical. It is cool though to see the film shot in Malaysia, I wasn't actually bothered by the geographical error made by the least Zeta said "it's this beautiful" when she was in Malaysia, though it does seem forced. Overall I can say it is entertaining and I can watch it again but only till the 2nd went downhill for me after that..a pity too since Malaysia was shown after the 2nd heist..haih.

Next Film; I haven't seen this before..Field of Dreams
