Movies + Shopping

I’m loving and hating the GSS. Loving the sales yet hating the crowd. Loving the deals yet hating the hole they caused in my pocket. I shant elaborate what I’ve spent. Poor dearie has been accompanying me for the shopping most of the time and he has never complained except once, when his back pained.

“Walked too much..” he mumbled. Haha.

As much as how much his insensitivity and “sense-less” nature irks me from time to time, I have to admire his patience, high level of accommodation and good-temper towards me. And well, thank god for his good humour and witty nature, it’s difficult to stay pissed with him because he can always make me laugh.

Alright. Enough of all this, if you find them mushy.

It’s the movie season! We caught many movies lately and they’re all pretty fantastic. Yet to catch “Yip Man Legend” though.

Movie title: Nightmare at Elm Street
Ratings: 4/5
Comments: Thrillers are always my favorite. Despite a re-make film, they did a good job at keeping my nerves raw. Though, I was slightly disappointed that there wasnt any twist in the plot.

Movie title: Killers
Ratings: 3.8/5
Comments: I was expecting fireworks between Katherine and Ashton but quite disappointingly, I felt none. The story was being rushed and kind of lacks convincing power. I dont even feel it’s funny as a comedy. Katherine usually can do better, she was great in “The Ugly Truth” and “27 dresses” etc. Hmm…..I guess Ashton simply dont have the funny bone in him or perhaps they lacked chemistry? He’s much better in that “Las Vegas” show with Cameron. Oh by the way, I think he’s pretty cute in this show. Haha.

Movie title: Karate Kid
Ratings: 4.5/5
Comments: It was really much more than I’ve expected. The show was very delicately made, focusing on the life of the karate kid after he moved to China with his mother. He was starred by Will Smith’s precious 10 year old son, Jayden Smith. Despite the movie title, I thought it was more of a comedy than an action movie as…well….the action moves werent very elaborate and fighting scenes were clearly being cut and connected inappropriately. For example, many fighting scenes of the chinese kid bully hitting Jayden on the face were being cut and then connected so that they linked, unconvincingly, where it should be in just 1 continuous take. Apparently, Mr Smith wasnt very comfortable with his son taking the punches, no matter how light they were being enacted. It’s like one scene the fist was going down on the face, the next scene showed the kid on the ground. Of course I dont mean I’m so sadist that I wished the kid to really get beaten up lah. I do understand he’s ultimately a kid, a millionaire’s kid to be exact. Despite so, I love the slight twist during the tournament and I was clenching my fists so hard! It’s a great movie which warms the heart and teaches many lessons in life. I dont want to preach here, you can just watch it.

Movie title: The A-team
Ratings: 4/5
Comments: Hmm…watch it with an open mind and you’ll enjoy it. Some plots and scenes were highly exaggerating, however, still entertaining. Pretty funny at some parts. And anyone find Liam Neeson charming like I do? Haha. Yeah I have this thing for old man, now then you know meh? Lol.

Movie title: Prince of Persia
Ratings: 4.3/5
Comments: Oh this is nice. Watched this sometime back so didnt really remember the bits. Hmm the actions were engaging and interesting plot. =)

Movie title: Sex and the City 2
Ratings: 4.3/5
Comments: Initially I was being cynical about it’s part 2 as usually sequels get worse and worse. Just look at “Harry Potter”. But it was really very funny! Thanks to the sexy Samantha who isnt shy to admit her desires and do what she loves. I admire her for that. I enjoyed the part 2 more than the part 1. =)
