Amazing... I take my hats off to Hong Kong movies. In terms of action flick movie: the stunts and plot, not even Hollywood can come close.

In Hollywood action movie, it's mostly about a terrorist wanting to take over the world... Or a terrorist who's in fact not a terrorist but he just wanna robbed all the money in the world... I'm not saying such movie plot is bad... but sometimes... you don't know what you end up watching... I supposed it mainly for the explosion and how grand the whole movie is... The stunts are so impossible that you'll know for sure they're computer graphics... If I wanna watch a CG film, I would rather go for movies such as Transformer or Star Wars anytime.

Looks like Nicholas Tse had chosen to do most if not all the stunts himself.. Jumping towards a moving bus, jumping down from a roof where he ended up hitting on to a truck... amazing... can see that he put in alot of effort and faith into this movie!

I'll spare you the plot though... But in this show... In my perspective at least, there isn't any good or bad guy... very Grey... except for one bad guy lah... who happens to be the ultimate bad guy... but he's not the main character in the movie anyway...

In such plot... you can really see the anger, thoughts and pain which each character goes through for things they've done... this sometimes reflect our society isn't it? you wonder which side you are on... is there a good or bad side in our society nowadays? I'm not saying the extreme cases where one goes committing crimes for no reasons... I'm referring to an action or an act... one that would affect your principle and integrity... but you were being forced to do it... pretty much like you're left without any choice...

I once saw this movie call 真心话... Starring Fann Wong and Peter Ho... In one of the scene, Peter who works as a journalist spoke about how his boss would reward his colleagues with bonus if they can take "up-skirt" photos of celebrities. He then recalled that he was beaten up by his dad when he was a kid for stealing girls' panties... He lamented about what is right and wrong... Sometimes it's hard to judge... Between ethically right and professionally wrong... So to all those people out there... Believe in yourself... Do wht you believe in. Most important is being true to yourself and stay happy... Nothing beats that...

Sorry for the lack of update lately. Super duper tied up at work. Anyway... amidst of the hectic work, I've managed to catch a couple of movies. Yup... As you can see from the poster on top. I'm going to talk about something that is more than meet the eyes...

Terrific movie I must say. Being a kid who has grown up with the cartoon. I'm just so amazed by the Computer Graphics that are built into this movie. Never have I ever seen so much interaction; of a robot so real life with a real life actors and actresses. You got to give it to Michael Bay. From the earlier movies like Bad Boys and Armageddon to now, Transformers. If you do a wiki on him, you will realize that he doesn't have much movies in his portfolio. But, he has already created a name for himself. However, I'm somewhat disappointed with the ending though. As we all know there will be a sequel to it and I reckon they will have to bring Megatron back to life. If not, who will fight Optimus Prime? Just think about this, which movie wouldn't be a big hit when you have names like Bay and Spielberg? Therefore, they should have thought about a sequel long before this movie was launched.

Beside, as much as I like the special effect, I do have to admit that I was kinda confused when the robots were fighting. From my fading memories, beside Prime and Bumblebee who are rather colorful, I can't seem to identify who is who when they were fighting. Guess there's still a couple of hurdles before we can see real seamless fusion between real actors with CG.

Way too over

I was at Crazy Elephant last week and I saw this girl who dyed her hair blonde. Now before I move on, I want to clarify that I have no qualms about Singapore girls dating a foreigner. In fact, the typical Singaporean guys aren't as sensitive or loving as the ladies want us to be. And as they always put it, we Singapore men are more reserved or shy or simply, DULL.

Now here goes the story. I saw this girl... She was like so indulged in dancing to the blues music (courtesy of the live band). But, it seems like she's on ecstasy more than she's enjoying the music! She acted like she's in some low class disco dancing and jumping all over the place! Now here's the part that makes me wonder. It seems like she's enjoying herself... Or shall I say, all by herself. She got a couple of Caucasians and tried to dance with them but most of the guys just left halfway through as I reckon they didn't want to make a fool out of themselves. They seemed so uncomfortable with this lady dancing like a Red Indian around her campfire.

So what's my point? My point is... She gave me the vibe that she's acting way too over! Stop trying to think you're more liberal or open minded by being too over! For obvious reason, she tried too hard. So hard that even the "more open-minded" ang mos got uneasy with her action. And what did she get in the end? Like a fool standing at one corner smiling all by herself... But anyway, it's her life and she can pretty much choose how she wants it to be...
