Law Abiding Citizen & Mummenschanz

LAW ABIDING CITIZEN


I think this movie is too "cool" to be true. Storyline rather unrealistic and overboard but I like the plot and the extremeness of it - heartless and revengeful. Overall: Brilliant!


MUMMENSCHANZ


Baby and I went to this speechless muppet performance at Esplanade on 18 Jan (they were here for only 2 days). I have never attended a show that is of total silence yet still so entertaining and interactive. Whole theatre was so quiet you can hear a pin drop but this extraodinary theatrical experience was great! It's "humanless" thou it's all acted by humans. The interaction and participation with audiences was awesome and we were totally tickled by the humour thru all the gestures. Never regretted watching it.

This is how it's like:

C'est Pas Moi, Je le Jure!

Caught IT'S NOT ME, I SWEAR! last weekend.


I SWEAR foreign film makers are very good at making normal story interesting.. very interesting in fact. This is the next best thing I had come across after The Diving Bell & The Butterfly.

C'est Pas Moi, Je le Jure! was dramatic and artsy in a way and has this dark and disquieting aura. It's emotional and yet comical. Credit to the boy (Leon), who was such a great actor, and not forgetting cute too! This is a truly beautiful, enjoyable and unforgettable movie. A must watch!

I love this spot on line: "It's better not to lie, but it's worse to lie badly!"

Synopsis:
In the summer of 68, Leon Dor (Antoine L'Ecuyer) comes close to hanging himself accidentally. His mother saves him at the last minute, just like last summer in the pool and like two years ago in the freezer. At ten, Leon has lots of problems and an overly fertile imagination. There is Mom (Suzanne Clment) and Dad (Daniel Brire) who are always fighting and those annoying neighbours who get to spend the summer at the beach. And then, theres Lea (Catherine Faucher), the exasperating girl whos always right about everything.

When Mom decides to leave everything behind to start a new life in Greece, Lon is prepared to do anything to kill the pain destroy the neighbours house, become a professional liar and even, why not, fall in love with Lea. Together, they will overcome the pain of growing up when you feel abandoned.

However many women felt insulted and offended after seeing this. What about you?

Avatar 3D & Sherlock Holmes

I was basically nua-ing at home during my break from work since 19 Dec and I totally could not bring myself to blog.. plus I have been fiddling with my newly bought iPhone, so I guess that explained much on my laziness to blog.. haha..

Anyway nothing much happened except for some mini gatherings and outings. Baby and I had a nice dinner and drinks on Christmas Day. We wanted to fill our stomach with some good steak so I did some research and found ULURU and THE STEAKHOUSE. After going through some reviews I decided on the former and confirmed my reservations. But for some reasons nearer to date, they told me they decided to close for that day so we visited The Steakhouse at Clarke Quay instead. I have to rave about their saute mushrooms. It was delicious! Their mashed potato was nice too and the beef was good! Both of us enjoyed the dinner and the bill came up to about S$260+. Our verdict is to only go back if we can't find any other steakhouse better than this (similar or cheaper price) or if we are feeling rich again.. We would also like to try Uluru and Mortens in time to come.

I also went to Bodyworld with Penny at Science Centre. Thou it was quite interesting and very informative, I have to say I was rather disappointed with the scale of the exhibition. It was not as spectacular as I thought it would be. I probably expected too much.

Last but not least, caught these two movies before the new year.

AVATAR

It's a must watch in 3D cos it's spectacular. Sitting thru the movie for 2hrs 40mins was not an issue at all. Very entertaining, imaginative and visually stunning. Thou the story was interesting, the love between Neytiri and Jake felt a little awkward, especially the love scene. Overall it's a one-of-a-kind show you won't want to miss.

SHERLOCK HOLMES

It was great fun watching Robert Downey Jr. play Sherlock Holmes (the messy and dirty version) and Downey is still as charming as ever. The movie was witty, clever, engaging and full of actions. Judging by the ending, a sequel is a guarantee.
