Movies Weekend

Movies Weekend

This weekend caught 2 very different movies.

The first one "The Pursuit of Happyness" by Will Smith and his son, Jaden Smith.

Chris Gardner (Will Smith) is a bright and talented, but marginally employed salesman. Struggling to make ends meet, Gardner finds himself and his five-year-old son evicted from their San Francisco apartment with nowhere to go. When Gardner lands an internship at a prestigious stock brokerage firm, he and his son endure many hardship, including living in shelters, in pursuit of his dream of a better life for the two of them.

Will Smith got nominated for Best Actor in this year's Oscar and can say that this is definitely one of his best film ever. His acting with his son is so real that I actually felt for them at times during the movie. This movie is very motivating to do your best in whatever you wanna. If you wanna something, dun expect to drop it from the sky but to go and get it! However in the movie, he did it solely for the money. Hmm... So does that mean that when you have money, you will have happiness? This is something to think about. No money, not happy. This is true to certain aspect. Got money, will be happy? So those who are rich, are they happy? Hmm.... Do they even have the time to spend the money in the first place? Haa....

I will give the movie 4 stars out of 5. Great simple movie.

The next movie I caught was "300". I wanna to catch the digital version and it was quite a last min decision to watch so we got seats 2nd row from the front.

This movie is based on the epic graphic novel by Frank Miller, 300 is a ferocious retelling of the ancient Battle of Thermopylae in which King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) and 300 Spartans fought to the death against Xerxes and his massive Persian army. Facing insurmountable odds, their valor and sacrifice inspire all of Greece to unite against their Persian enemy, drawing a line in the sand for democracy. The film brings Miller’s (Sin City) acclaimed graphic novel to life by combining live action with virtual backgrounds that capture his distinct vision of this ancient historic tale.

Watching this movie, with all the man in loin cloths and their well defined abs, jz wanna to make me put down the pop corn and head for the gym. Haa.... Of cos after the movie lah. The CGI effects in the movie is really good. The war scenes are good but after the dunno how many wars, it starts to get a bit boring. Haa... It is also shot in a very MTV style, interesting. I will give the movie 3.5 stars out of 5. For the abs, I will give 5 stars out of 5. Haa....

Ok Polarbear heading towards a gym now... ...
