Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Finally the second installment is here. I have to say that the first one blew me away and I do have a lot more expectations for this movie when they are going to add in more Transformers in this movie.

However after watching the movie, to me, it fell below my expectations of the movie. The story is simple to follow (in fact not much of a plot there), with lots of explosions and I loved it when Megan Fox is running at times. Haha.... Again, the machines all look alike and when they appeared at the same time, it is hard to differentiate them.

To me, I think they made this movie because they want to earn more money while everyone is keen in this movie. overall, I give this movie 3 stars for just being an entertaining movie. Till now, I think Starwars is still the best Summer Movie.

I Love You, Man

From the poster, I knew that this is going to be a very funny movie, cos the 2 leads actors are famous for their comedy.

The movie plot is simple, a guy getting married but need to find a best man as he does not have any guys friends and led to a lot of funny situations! As in the same line as other comedies, there are a lot of jokes both funny and lame in the movies. I do like the way they showed how 2 guys can be bonded together! Haha.... I do hope that I will not end up like the male lead in the end. Haha.... I give this movie 3 out of 5 for being so entertaining.

Drag Me To Hell

This movie was a master piece! Before I step into the cinema, I knew that this is going to be a horror show. From the review, I knew that it is going to be a good horror show.

The movie plot was simple, a girl is being cursed by the a witch and tried to get rid of the curse. The leads in the movie are relatively unknown, so that can be a good start as there were no expectations. When I was watching the show, I was kept by the edge of my seat as I do not know what was coming up next or what the director had in place to scare us. I have to admit that I am timid to watch horror films but I do get a kick out of it whenever I am watching it. There are also a lot of funny moments in the show which help to soften the horror impact. It does not help when I am watching it from a large screen! Haha....

Overall, I loved this show. So much so that I am going to give it 4.5 out of 5. Hee...

Monsters Vs Aliens (3D)

Watched this movie in the 3D format. I was expecting quite a lot from this movie especially the same people also came out with Kungfu Panda.

The story line is simple, there were monsters that were found on earth from time to time and they were being kept in a secret location. One fine day, a rock fell to earth from the sky and it hit a gal who is about to get married. Upon in contact with the rock, she turned into a giantic women. Hence she was arrested as well. At the same time, there was an alien attack and they saved the earth by fighting back.

After watching the movie, I was disappointed with the plot. Simple but does not have any good meaning in it. All the characters are also boring, one dimensional, nothing to wow about. The 3D is still as good with things popping out of the screen but the movie is quite a bore for me. Overall, I give this movie 2.5 stars out of 5. I am expecting better cartoons from Dreamworks ok! Hee...

Blood: The Last Vampire

It was a last minute decision to watch a movie and sort of decided to watch this movie all because of the female lead, Gianna Jun. It was a weekday midnight show yet I am quite surprised that the cinema was almost full! So it seems that a lot of people are either really not working or simply dun care. Haha...

Back to the movie, the plot is simple, a good vampire killing all the bad vampires aka bloodsuckers and in the end killed the most "powerful" one of all with a slight twist in the end. The plot was a letdown, sort of making no sense in the middle of the movie. The cast is sort of an international crew, some with good English and some with bad English. I think the female lead did a great job especially her English was quite good. The special effects of this movie is like so 10 years ago. Lots of action in this movie but none was good. The ending was a disappointed one, it just makes no sense as she defeated the most powerful vampire without even a fight. Hmm.... Overall I give this movie 2 stars out of 5. Luckily I watched this on a weekday. Hee...

I still got so many movies to watch! I think it is time for another movie marathon session. Haha... Anyone keen to join me?

Reservist yet again

It was time for me to go back for another 2 weeks reservist today and imagine my last reservist was actually just last Nov only. Sigh.... Seems like they really happy to call me go back every year (3 times in 3 years).

This time round is going to be bored as all my buddies are not joining me this time round so I am going to be all lonely.

Well at least going to use this time to catch up with my ex colleagues and get to swim a bit as well. Hee.... Pray that this 2 weeks will go past very fast!

A good thing out of this is I got usage of a rental car for 2 weeks! Woohoo! Going to be so stressed driving again! Hee...

Free time!

Recently suddenly had a lot of free time on hand. Most of it was spent on doing nothing much actually. Haha...

Today finally decided to move my lazy ass and head to the swimming pool for 30 laps. I had not been swimming since my last dive trip almost 2 months ago. I am happy to say that I managed to complete my laps around my usual timing.

I was quite surprised to see many people at the pool like as if it was a weekend. Still I managed to complete the 30 laps in peace but the only sad thing was the sun was hiding behind the clouds today. I was quite happy with myself after the swim today.

Hmm... was thinking if I should continue to swim tomorrow as well? Well shall leave it to tomorrow and decide.
