The Expendables & SandCastle

THE EXPENDABLES


Power cast with funny dialogues and explosive + insane actions as expected . But I have to say some of the effects looked quite fake (too digitalised). This is one super old-school and "very man" movie, although I thought Mickey Rourke & Bruce Willis were kinda underutilised. Anyway overall, I enjoyed the movie thoroughly. It was great fun watching them having fun.

SANDCASTLE

I have to say I totally enjoyed this local production! This is really one movie that showcased the talents of our local film makers. An easily identified, down-to-earth story with some light humour (I thought the funniest one was the presentation on National Day Parade preparation). Whole show was rather slow paced but the flow was engaging enough to keep you watching. I was quite surprised (pleasantly) by the bold move on the bed scene. However I tot the abrupt end was a little too artistic for me to digest. Maybe it's supposed to be thought provoking?

Precious, Letters to God, The Crazies & The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Caught these movies recently. Was too busy to update.

PRECIOUS

A well told story and remarkable performance by the entire cast. I was enraged by the abuses and inhumane acts but moved by the strength and courage Precious had. A story of tribulations and transformations. It may be a little too late for me to say this but you cannot miss this movie. Get the DVD or what, you just have to watch it.

Intentions were good but too weak a story line. Expected something more inspiring, however this is too preachy. Cannot take it. I think it's more a movie for devoted Christians.

THE CRAZIES

Another viral and zombie movie and it's really quite crazzzy. Although I did not see the original one in 1973 but I think this remake turned out well (in general usually remake version is fail.com). Quite fast pace and sometimes will drive you to the edge. Not bad for a scary movie.

THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO

This was an awesome piece of suspense movie! Provocative, violent, sadistic, compelling and dark. Lisbeth is very very cool! I heard the book is better with more details but nonetheless this show is a good watch.
