Mini Movie Marathon

Mini Movie Marathon

Started off with Friday night, supposed to meet up with a group of ex colleagues for dinner at Brussel Sprouts @ Robertson Quay. In the end, met up with 2 of them (Winnie and SP) at Raffles Place TCC and ended not joining the rest. Haa... The 3 of us so bad. However we had a great time catching up with each other. Finally we got to meet up though.

After which met up with LLT for a mini movie marathon, YES! We are going to watch 2 movies back to back. Hee.... The first movie is "Dreamgirls", me watching it for the 1st time and LLT second time. Haa.... This time round the sound system sucks!

The movie is actually a musical about the rise of 3 girls from backup singers to become the hottest group in town! Loved the girls, Beyoncé Knowles, Anika Noni Rose, Jennifer Hudson. They all sang to their best for the movie. This reminds me that I need to get the soundtrack. Hee... Of course good things dun last long, the story continues where jealousy steps in and the group broke up. Overall the movie was great esp all the singing parts. Great performance put up by Jennifer Hudson who in my view overshadowed Beyonce, that is y she won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, very good for a first timer! I will give the movie 3.5 stars out of 5, for the songs sequence in the movie 4 stars out of 5. However it is still not my all time fav musical movie! My fav is still Chicago! Haa....

The second movie is "Notes on a Scandal". This movie is a very interesting movie where it happens between 2 women and a young male student. A news Arts teacher, Sheba Hart (Cate Blanchett), joined the school and another teacher in the school, Barbara Covett (Judi Dench) was drawn to her and developed a friendship with her. Before it can develop further, she found out that Sheba was having a sexual relationship with a male student. She uses this to her advantage and began to emotionally blackmail Sheba with the secret.

The acting from both are just great! Of course both being nominated for the Oscar as well. I will give the movie 4 stars out of 5 as well. Haa....

The mini movie marathon was fun but someone jz simply cannot keep herself awake huh? Next time will bring a pillow for you ok? Haa....
