Beyond A Reasonable Doubt, Gomorrah & Zombieland

Caught the following movies recently.


Initially I thought the ending was quite abrupt but it was actually not the end yet. A nice and unexpected twist, which took me a while to digest.. haha.. Reviews were not great but I personally quite like the story.


What you wish to know about mafias, gangsterism, corruption and exploitation can be found in this movie. Some might find it boring as I saw quite a handful of people left the theatre not even halfway thru the 2hrs 15mins show. I thought the opening was very cool. This movie is strictly business and merciless, which reminded me of the movie "Godfather".


Releasing: 3 Dec 09

Did not regret going for this preview screening yesterday. I would name this a horrifying comedy. Super gory (lotsa flesh tearing scenes and blood sheds) with occasional startles when the zombies suddenly appeared! Bill Murray part was funny coz he's already a comedian! I love the script with all the funny rules to survive the zombies and interesting ways to kill them. Must watch if you want to be tickled and scared at the same time.. hehe...

Georgi howl / cry?

Few days back in the middle of the night, Georgi howled (btw Georgi never howled and this was the 1st time)! I dunno if it's a howl or cry but his "screams", which was more effective than my alarm clock, startled me! He was dreaming for sure but I really wonder what he was dreaming about. When I patted and looked at him, he was awake and seem normal.

Anybody has the same experience?

Case 39

Caught the free screening of CASE 39 yesterday.


Releasing: 26 Nov 09

More a suspense thriller than horror for me. Very very predictable and I already knew who was the mastermind, thou they tried very hard not to portray that in the beginning. The child actress, Jodelle Ferland was really good in her role. Her creepy and evil disposition somehow or rather reminded me of Esther from ORPHAN and Joshua from JOSHUA. Hollywood child actors are really quite good in evil roles..

Thou overall not too bad a movie with OK storyline, it's not exactly worth paying S$10 unless you are a sucker for such genre.

Why do you get a dog...

when you know you are going to abandon them in the future?! I saw some emails on dogs rehoming and got really pissed and sick of the reasons that these people come out with.

I'm pregnant now / I have a kid now
If you know you will want or plan to have kids and dogs are not tolerated in such situation, think before you get one and not use a dog as a substitute to fill that emptiness before you have your own bundle of joy. Are dogs just toys? If you can't even commit to a dog, what more a human being? I suggest such people not to give birth at all!

I'm allergic to dog/dog's fur
If you bloody hell know you got such allergy, make sure and check/research first before getting a dog. There's no such thing as try get one first then realise cannot and abandon. So simple for you but not the dog, who has already developed a love for his owner.

I cannot handle the dog anymore
It's all about training and discipline. Can you tell ya kids or parents that you cannot handle them anymore and would like to throw them away too?

I'm migrating
I'm sure it's another excuse or chance to get rid of the dog... You will have a "great future" now in some part of the world and your dog becomes a burden? What's the point of planning ahead for your own future when you can't even plan/think the same for your dog, who is supposed to be part of your family and life?

Due to personal reasons
That's running out of excuses and pure BULLSHIT!

Why can't these morons wake up their idea and realise that dogs are not just something they can throw away as and when they like. It's so simple for us to come out with all sort of reasons/excuses to abandon them but to a dog, we are everything to them once they are in our life. Although some people will say they are responsible enough to find and put them in a better home.. Yes it's definitely better than just throw the dogs aside or to spca but do you know dogs do develop love and feelings for his owner/current family and it's whole-hearted? Have you ever thought how your dog will feel when you do this to them? And imagine they have to adjust to a new home all over again with the fear of being abandon one or maybe many more times coz of your stupid mistake? Don't ever disregard their feelings and simply think "They are just dogs".

If you are not committed, please dun ever get a dog or any kind of pets. I hope you idiots (whoever you are) will suffer retributions in your life!

Humpday

Caught HUMPDAY last weekend.


I would call this a bromantic comedy. One of those stupid moments and the things you dare at a drunken state. This interesting and nicely executed movie gave me a mixture of feelings. It was outrageous, funny, awkward, witty, thought-provoking, just to name a few.. I can only say if you are not gay, dun ever try to be one, not even in the name of art!

2012

Went for the Gala Premiere of 2012 yesterday at Shaw Lido.


Releasing: 12 Nov 09

One serious helluva roller coaster ride for me! The only thing I wanna rave about was the powerful and eye-popping special effects! You have to give it to Hollywood. They are damn good at such things! Simply destructive! There were also humorous moments such as the Bentley scene - most of us were so engrossed in the panic situation that the joke came out really unexpectedly, and everyone literally burst out in unison.. it's classic! haha..

IMO not a very strong script and abit unrealistic on the numerous escapes and brushes with death but the 2.5hrs movie was overall engaging and I was thoroughly entertained. But I'm still very skeptical about this prediction.

Paranormal Activity

Caught the sneaks of PARANORMAL ACTIVITY during the weekends.


Releasing: 12 Nov 09

Like me, many of you may be bored at the beginning for about 1/2 an hour but dun be fooled coz the tension slowly builds up as the movie goes along. For a low budget and simple movie, the suspense level was quite high. Trust me, you will always keep your focus on the time ticking away and at the same time expect something to happen everytime. I went to watch this movie with no expectations and the turn out was a good surprise. They definitely did a nice job by delivering substantial creeps. It's not very horrifying but the scares were genuine enough and I have to say not many people will appreciate this film. IMO, anytime better than SAW or Halloween...

Btw they claimed "Nightmares are guaranteed". However I slept peacefully and soundly throughout that night.. hehe

P/S: A lot of people misunderstood and tot this was from a real event. Yes it looks like one but is totally fictitious! Enjoy!

He is irreplaceable....

There's never a day that I do not think of my lil rascal at home... When I have to deal with morons and retards and work gets real shitty, just the thought of him and his smiley face makes me happy...

Besides his current nicknames like "Ah Bui", "Fatty", "Fei Zai" & "Cloud", he has a new one called longan coz his eyes look like longan seeds... He is not only a joy to me but the entire family.

He was, is and will still be my little baby :) Cant wait to go home soon...
