What a good movie to start of with after my sorta long hiatus.
Yesterday I saw Hunger Games, with a friend (luckily!..thought everyone had watched it)
Going in I really don't know what to expect, I know it was a book first and it's sorta like Condemned (u know the one with Stone Cold) .. and after I watched it ... It's Battle Royale all over again...but with more background story and lesser violence (there are violence but most of it were offscreen). Now I love Battle Royale to death, if memory serves me right I once put it as my top 10 movie of all time during my uni days. (i don't have a top 10 movie of all time anymore..it's simply impossible to have one) ..so to see something similar to that movie brings much joy to me heart.
The big difference Hunger Games was in comparison with Battle Royale is the back story..at least this time we actually know why the games were held...however the hour long about the journey before the game is a tad long..(the movie clocks in around 2 hrs 15 mins I think) they could at least cut some of the scenes short...specially the mushy stuff.
Now when the action starts it was ok .. not as badass as I wanted it to be .. but it'll do. The first massacre on the field was pretty well made, felt the tension eventhough nothing was actually shown but gory shit was implied. That's just it though...implied...lot of stuff happen offscreen which is a letdown. I prefer my movie to be slightly nasty .. and with tweens involve in the killings, it'll make the movie edgier.
Characters! Jennifer Lawrence was excellent!..she hits all the emotional like a pro..I felt the tears man! Gotta start watching this chic..she can go far. The others? They did good too, Lenny Kravitz was believable ... Rue was too cute! .. Peeta was okay I guess, the actor had done better in past movie ... District 1 & 2 tributes were cool enough and then I notice District 2 knife (dagger?) wielding chic ...she's Esther from Orphan!...I like her! ...like like like! ... and she did well..she played a psychotic chic well...that's her niche!..find more roles like this please.
Overall I enjoyed the movie (not love though BR still rules) and eagerly await the next chapter of this franchise (it will be a franchise kan?)

Selamat pulang ke Malaysia Abang Reza!
Hey Peeps! Am back after 2 weeks of vacationing.
Would firstly like to thank my partner in crime Siber for updating the blog while I was gone, don't want those tumbleweeds tumbling across my blog now again don't we?
So what I've missed?
Seems like a lot, during those 2 weeks of traveling and enjoying other people's country I didn't get a chance to catch a movie, wanted to..but the exchange rate was killer..balls!
Probably end of this week I'll try to catch John Carter, Hunger Games or Wrath of the Titans ( this week kuor kan?)..problem is seems like everyone has watch John Carter and Hunger Games...looks like I'll be watching those two alone :(
And to close I just read and saw the official FULL trailer of Prometheus was out a week back...and YUMMY!....loving it loving it!...I think I caught a glimpse of the Space Jockey...if that is in fact the Space Jockey...boy o boy I can't wait for this flick to come out...until next post..ta!
