Next Three Days

The movie next three days don't just tell you have happen within the short period of 3 days.. I drag you back all the way to 3 years back instead.
The plot tells a loyal husband and a loving dad trying to break his wife out of prison for a crime that she didn't commit. When there is a break out, there will be certain amount of expectation like high speed chasing, superb mastermind plan, and an ultimate twist, but sadly this movie has none of these elements.
Well you see, most of the time spent trying to figure out a greatest escape plan and character's relationship build up, and was somehow neglected the point where action should be introduce more into the movie.
Liam Neeson appears for a short while and I guess it somehow gets to attraction attention, but not for long. So after all the thinking and planning what did the audience get? Disappointment! It seems that it is not a good plan after all with all the obstacle and change of plan in the very final moment.
And since the main actor is Russell Crowe, I'm kinda expecting the Gladiator in him will be release. The escape plan were that impressive in my honest opinion and the way the movie was executed was rather average. The ending part was also fragile too.

Stop Child Abuse

Child Abuse is an act of physical or emotional or sexual mistreatment to the children. Below are some child abuse act caught on tape. Warning, some may find the video disturbing, you have been warned!

And a more recent video is posted on facebook on child abuse can be found here
Doesn't it piss you off when you watch such case be it on video or right in front of your eye? What have they done till they are being treated in such manner? Shouldn't you as an adult/parent/nanny/babysister/etc be responsible of your role in ensuring that the child is educated properly and being taught to walk to the right path? I don't know but it seems to me that the world has fallen ill.
There are many body that stood up to aid and to stop child abuse. However it wouldn't work if it doesn't receive response from the community. United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is one of the body who will stand strong and fight against the devil to aid innocent young child. Aid them to aid the innocent and take action against those who abuse their responsibility.
If there is one act of child abuse that I never wanna see it happen again it would be the abuse that lead to dead of a innocent and helpless young child. Hurting them physically and/or emotionally is already very very wrong what's more taking their life like slaughtering chicken. Even animal would sacrifices its life to protect its child, why can't human do they same given the fact that we are suppose to be a smarter species if we were to compare to animals?
So do support UNICEF in its effort to fight for children's right. Together, we could make our concern speaks louder than words.

Specially thank to Nuffnang and ChurpChurp for bring Rapunzel alive with the special screening of Rapunzel in 3D Wohoo...
I'm pretty sure most of us know who Rapunzel is.. And judging form the fact that this is a Disney production, the ending is pretty much given and expected.. Question is, how do you attract people who have already seen and heard of Rapunzel a thousand times to dig deep into their pocket and to reach out for their cash to purchase the ticket for the movie? Simple, you make it in 3D! Well the good news is, you get more than that in this film, that is why it is also called A Tangled Tale
The main reason why you wanna watch this is because when you thought you knew it all, you know nothing..
The movie also brought in cute and funny character to spice things up just so that you don't get "the prince kiss the princess and they live happily ever after" this kind of crap.. It also kinda children oriented as not only does it contains positive value in life, it always feature song with positive lyrics like "Mom is always right" (something like that).

Nothing much to scream about the CG and 3D effect however. But there is a scene where thousand of lanterns floating on the sky was really a magical and sweet moment in my honest opinion. If only I could simulate that :D

Peter Pan - A musical journey

A very special thank to AMBP (All Malaysian Bloggers Project) and Sunway Lagoon for not only the invites to Behind The Scene of Peter Pan The Musical but also for making it happen right here in Malaysia. We bloggers get to meet the 4 main cast namely Peter Pan, Wendy, Smee, and Captain Hook who are directly "imported" from western country :p
Here are the cast in sequence from left to right
Peter Pan played by Mark Iles
Wendy played by LJ Neilson
Smee played by Pater Jamieson
Captain Hook played by Michael Morgan
Were were being brief on what to expect by Aaron and how they put all together into one fine piece, one great musical show for us Malaysian to enjoy
According to Aaron, the overall cost around 1million ++ with all newly imported chairs, magical stage decoration, lighting, costume, and oh ya audience will be experiencing snow too during the show.. We also had the opportunity to go up stage for some photo session
The stage is yet to complete as seen above and the team work really hard to put every final piece together.. Also besides Aaron, there is this Mr "All in one" who does as mentioned in his nick, does everything and anything under the sun
We were brought to magical land by this prison like train :p
After the preview, we were given the opportunity to mingle and to dine with the cast. How cool can it be. It is only then I found out that actually Peter Pan (Mark) hates seafood :p If only there is a chunk of seafood in the dish, Mark would just pass.
As this would be my very first live musical show, I'm kinda looking forward to it.. Yes I've been invited to the Gala Premier this coming Friday night at Sunway Lagoon. Can't wait till then to experience the magical moment. Hope it doesn't disappoint me as these cast are really dedicated to what they are doing. "They don't do sick" repeated by Aaron countless time. Can you? We Malaysian if got stunk by mosquito, we would love to seek MC too..

Bruce Lee, My Brother

I'm sure you guys know who this guy in yellow don't you?
 No not kill bill even though they have similar outfit.. He is Bruce Lee, a legend, a hero to the film industry.. and this movie is to let audience / fans to get to know Bruce better, living through his childhood together throughout the 2 hours movie.
Aarif Lee play the role of Bruce in this movie who is also the main character. Who is Aarif exactly?
Aarif Lee was born in Hong Kong, the youngest of three siblings. His father is a Malay-Arab-Chinese ancestry, while his mom is a Hongkonger. His father owns a cleaning company, and they reside in Sai Kung. He grew up in Hong Kong and attended King George V School, of which he was the Head Boy from 2004-2005. After graduating from KGV, he attended Imperial College (London) to study Physics for three years. Before entering University, he had already signed a contract with Amusic; however, he completed his education before returning to Hong Kong to become an artist of Amusic. (Source)

For some reason I felt that Aarif look like Wang Lee Hom a Taiwanese singer as portrait below.
Anyway this is a drama movie and if you are in for some action, better stay off. This is a "documentary" movie where you grew up along with Bruce. You get to know him better from his family point of view as the story was told by Robert Lee, Bruce's brother.

The way the movie being executed was rather ordinary and there ain't much to expect, after all Bruce is human too like us.

Rate: 2/5

BTW anyone happen to know who is this?

The Social Network

Had multiple premier screening invitation to the movie The Social Network and I attended the one from Nuffnang last night in Mid Valley. Damn talking about that I do have plenty of things to complain. Mid Valley being the most centralized shopping mall, located in between PJ and KL, was very well known for difficulties in getting a parking lot, has now out of sudden hike the parking rate effectively from 1 November 2010. Funny part was the hike is only applicable during weekdays.
Is like WTF.. They suddenly decided that they wanna buy a new helicopter and what's better way to ask for a donation from us? Damn you!
This movie starring Jesse Eisenberg who play the role of Mark Zuckerberg, also the founder of facebook.
And man, the way he speaks is so rapid that even subtitle might not help you in catching up.. This movie is all about facebook drama from how it begin to how it created enemies.
Even though the movie is a "all talk" movie, it is fun watching it provided you are able to relate yourself to it and you are catching up with what they are talking about..
Rate: 4/5

My Magical Journey

If I'm given the chance to explore the world of Narnia I would pick Archenland as my must visit spot out of the rest. Archenland is a mountainous country south of Narnia, if you don't know about it yet..
 Unlike other part of Narnia, this is where I could enjoy the magical moment and still feeling home as this is a country where it is inhabited by human and also governed by Men. I mean after all, it is a vacation that I would bring my loved one to and I don't want to freak her out with monster or creature that will ruin her holiday mode.

In conjunction with the soon to release movie Narnia, Nuffnang has manage to collaborate with GSC EON Bank Credit Card to bring this very premier to its member. Nuffnangers don't only get to watch the movie first, but also stand a chance to win 1 Brand New Sony Ericsson Xperia™ X10 worth RM1,999

 You can get more details here: http://www.nuffnang.com.my/blog/2010/11/01/narnia/
