Been busy lately. Kept meaning to update properly but we all know where good intentions end up (in my stomach, if you really need to know). Got a few things to get off my chest though, else I’d be constantly thinking about wanting to blog them and it’d bug me until I do.
27 DRESSES. Stupid betul. Why anyone thinks Katherine Heigl is any good after ROSWELL is beyond me. She is my least favourite actress and character in GREY’S ANATOMY and she was rather blah in KNOCKED UP but luckily Seth Rogan saved the day (he should really stop giving interviews though — what an annoying nervous laugh). In 27 DRESSES, she langsung tak ada chemistry with James Marsden and that kind of suck. What made HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN 10 DAYS a more enjoyable chick flick was that Kate Hudson and Matthew ‘I Cant’ Spell His Last Name Without Googling’ had something going on. I don’t care if they wanted to kill each other on the set (which I don’t know anything about; just saying), they sure didn’t act like it on-screen. Anyway if you are thinking of getting 27 DRESSES for a weekend movie or something, don’t. Get THE WEDDING PLANNER instead — same type of storyline, funnier, better acting, slightly better chemistry between Jennifer Lopez and Matthew What’s His Name, so there.
ENCHANTED. Didn’t really leave much of an impression on me, but I remember I smiled during some parts of the movie. I think there was singing.
WAR. Me and KY were at the Mac Shop @ Pavilion, and the trailer for this movie was stored in one of the Macs. KY opened the file and we watched in trailer in salivating wonder. Maybe it was the quality of the iMac, maybe it was that Jet Li did not bother to speak in English at anytime during the trailer, which is a 1000000000% plus. Anyway I liked the movie and I don’t know why its rating on IMDB is not higher. Seriously, you don’t give a shit about the storyline and who spoke better Japanese bla bla bla when you have Jet Li and Jason Statham fighting each other z0mgwtfbbq!
P.S. I LOVE YOU. Never really minat Hilary Swank. Don’t know why lah, just never took a liking to her. It was years back but I could not bear to watch BOYS DON’T CRY till the end. Anyway within 15 minutes of this movie, I was tearing up like a kid who got her candy snatched away then punched in the stomach then kicked to the curb then left to the vultures. At the end of it, I was so overwhelmed by my emotions that had built up throughout the movie and settled on my head, heart and shoulders threatening to erupt ala Krakatoa that I went out of my room, out of the house to the garden and walked in circles for about two minutes. Then I went back up to my room and listened to Howard Stern, and all was well with the world again. Really, some movies should come with an over-emo warning sign.
THE KITE RUNNER. I managed to score some free tickets thanks to the All-Malaysian Bloggers Project. The movie was touching and awesome. After that I read the book, which made me appreciate the story more. You should do it in the same order as me — movie first, then book (if you have yet to read it). Why? Because my mom read the book first then watched the movie, and she was not as moved. Btw KY cried a bit during the movie because “Men have feelings too, you know.”
THE BUCKET LIST. The only good that came out of this was the song ‘Say’ by John Mayer. I don’t know lah… two big ass names, but I just didn’t feel it lor. They just didn’t feel like friends to me, it felt as if they were just going through the motions… The whole storyline was also rather abrupt.
SYDNEY WHITE. Watch SHE’S THE MAN. It’s miles better. You know, if you are into this kind of no-brainer fluff.
LOOKING FOR COMEDY IN A MUSLIM WORLD. Try harder. Okay well, I know the whole argument about the hidden meanings and subtlety of jokes and satire and shit, but 98 minutes of Albert Brookes in his whiny Marlin voice made me seriously contemplate undergoing a gastric bypass. Now, THAT is a hidden joke.
