Weekend that zipped past!

This weekend nothing much happen less the IT Show (I will cover it in another post), meet up with the guys and of cos gym (Boring!).

Saturday after gym, met up with my closest group of friends. Hee... not a very big group. Glad that we all still made time to meet up and catch up with each other.
Met at Bugis and landed up at Seafood Harvest for dinner. Bad choice!

Last minute decided to catch Meet the Spartans @ PS.

The movie is a spoof mainly from the movie 300, other movies and a series of TV Show (American Idol, Deal or no Deal, etc)and even what appeared on news also being spoofed. With the director and writers who used to come out with Date movie and Scary movie series well, can expect what kind of crap that came out. Hee...

There is only one word for this movie, LAME! Sad to say it is not funny for like 80% of the time. *Yawn* Still it is good to spend time watching such movies to relax and not to think too much. Hee... Erhh... Overall I give this movie 1 star out of 5, as the actors did take time to shape up like the actual Spartans. Haa...

Sunday after gym, I went to catch "There will be Blood" alone. Thought that no one will be watching such movie but I was so wrong, as I managed to get ticket 3rd row from the front like 10 mins before the movie started.

A sprawling epic of family, faith, power and oil, "There Will Be Blood" is set on the incendiary frontier of California's turn-of-the-century petroleum boom. The story chronicles the life and times of one Daniel Plainview (Daniel Day-Lewis), who transforms himself from a down-and-out silver miner raising a son on his own into a self-made oil tycoon.

When Plainview gets a mysterious tip-off that there's a little town out West where an ocean of oil is oozing out of the ground, he heads with his son, H.W. (Dillon Freasier), to take their chances in dust-worn Little Boston. In this hardscrabble town, where the main excitement centers around the holy roller church of charismatic preacher Eli Sunday (Paul Dano), Plainview and H.W. make their lucky strike. But even as the well raises all of their fortunes, nothing will remain the same as conflicts escalate and every human value – love, hope, community, belief, ambition and even the bond between father and son – is imperiled by corruption, deception and the flow of oil.

This movie is a long movie @ 2 hrs and 38 mins, it felt longer than that. First, I have to say that this movie is all about Daniel Day-Lewis, he totally deserves all the Best Actor award he received. The movie shows the like as a oil dealer and digger as well. The danger they faced at work and how they looked for oil. This movie also dealt with the topic of religion. The guys who acted as the preacher is actually also quite good, why he was not nominated as well? Hmm.... Overall, I love the way that they shot the movie, totally took my breath away. I give this movie 4.5 stars out of 5.

After the movie, rushed down to Suntec to meet my mum and sis for the IT Fair, had dinner and went home. Finally, I got to rest! Before I knew it, the weekend was over already.
