movie reviews

I have just returned from watching a movie with my man, Siuyook in IOI mall.. we could have gone to Sunway pyramid or Midvalley but we really wanted to save time and catch that movie...It was....(ok you can laugh before you continue reading) CICAKMAN! I woke up at 11am and I nudged siyook as soon as I sat down in front of my comp.. I told him:

So right after that we didn't hesitate anymore and rushed to the cinema.. when we reached it was about 12.25pm and we were not really familiar with IOI mall.. cos no one ever really lepaks there anyway.. except for people who really have stuff to buy there.. We bought the ticket, and I could assure you outside the cinema, me and siuyook were the only chinese guys there.. Its either they are watching Cicakman with us (which I think all of them were, cos the ticket that everyone bought was cinema 5, the one that we're in..) or they are watching ZOMBI KAMPUNG PISANG (another lame low budget movie).

We wanted to buy snacks and drinks before getting into the movie, but like I said.. cicakman was more important than anything and we're gonna be late and the queue is still so fucking long.. So I told siuyook.. jomla we got no time for all this anymore! then when we gave our tickets then we saw one snack counter inside.. So i thought maybe we could buy some snack,.. then from the person's back, I called 'Bang, boleh bagi mineral water satu?' then the person turned around and.. she's actually a kak! she freaking look like a guy man.. but voice girl.. and from the front u can identify that she's a girl la.. haha..

Moving on.. the trailers in the movie all fucking lame malay shows la (I'm not being unpatriotic but I guess some local movies are really not worth watching at all la.. I'm saying this as an honest proud malaysian, Victor). Then start la the movie. I think that Yusri and the main girl gave a stellar performance, but the villains and the main hero (Gingermen and cicakman respectively) rosakkan the movie only la.. seriously they could have been better if they didn't exagerate their acting.. especially the way the talk.. The storyline to me was ok.. because although the action scenes were quite lame, other scenes, like sad and romantic scenes are really quite ok.. Aznil did quite a great job as the supervillain..

Cicakman is very ugly and looks disgusting but certain parts are really funny,.. ginger boys are super duper lame and stupid and annoying. This movie is all about clonning by the bad professor played by Aznil and in the end of the movie he cloned a black cicakman.. a cicakman who speaks cantonese.. haha its damn funny.. and all the clones were cetak rompak, so they macam vcd ciplak la.. talk half way then hang kei! haha seriously damn bodoh!. and cicakman is afraid of rubber band cos people normally use rubber band to kill cicaks at home..

Overall.. after watching the movie siuyook and I kena PSTD cos too stress and tension and too many lawak bodoh yang bodoh tahap bodoh yang tak terhingga.

Out of 5 star I give 1/2 star only. Its better than watching paint dry though.. but its really ok if you don't mind the ugly suit and the ginger boys.. then its a movie that i suppose anyone can handle.

I guess no one knows what is PSTD so I'll paste the definition from wikipedia:

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a term for certain psychological consequences of exposure to, or confrontation with, stressful experiences that the person experiences as highly traumatic. [1] The experience must involve actual or threatened death, serious physical injury, or a threat to physical and/or psychological integrity. It is occasionally called post-traumatic stress reaction to emphasize that it is a routine result of traumatic experience rather than a manifestation of a pre-existing psychological weakness on the part of the patient.

surprisingly, cicakman (chee-chuck-man) is so famous that when I typed its name in wikipedia, i get a search result.. amazing.. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cicakman

I came back to cyberjaya with a broken heart and dissatisfied state of mind.

***

On Friday night, me siuyook and yang went to pyramid to catch the movie The Host, a Korean movie about an ugly monster. From the trailer it seemed serious, but the fact is.. it is almost a comedy. Not as bad as cicakman, I give the movie 3 stars out of 5.. The host is about a monster that appeared mysteriously in south korea for no reasons and for some obvious reasons, it feeds on human. the cg was quite cool, the monster looked kinda real,.. but the movie just lacked substance (from the actors and some scenes are quite lame). The little girl who got captured by the monster portrayed her character beautifully... the kids who acted in the movie gave really got performance.. The 4 main characters did a so-so only job on delivering their parts, and most of them performed well during scenes that are funny.

For the plot of the movie click this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Host_%28film%29
Surprisingly this movie made it in korea as the best movie at the moment.. Perhaps cos of the CG..

Watching the host was the result of failure to convince yang that cicakman was a better movie compared to the host.. Good thing he didn't watch the movie.. :)
