Shadows of Love

 Was invited by Newskaki to the screening of Shadows of Love last Thursday at MBO Viva Home but due to unforeseen circumstances, I couldn't make it but manage to watch Shadows of Love elsewhere and here's my verdict on the movie.

Synopsis: A modern romantic love story of Cinderella. Cecilia played two roles, one side is white Fu-mei, Paris, and one side is the Pygmalion the Qin core, played by Kwon Sang-woo rich handsome the right is smoked in the search for the missing Paris, accidentally discovered a similar appearance of the Qin-core, so the request of its posing as Paris can help the company temporarily to tide over the crisis. Qin core in a short time to experience the white rich America Paris of luxury living, and also learned to the many upper-class complex etiquette, but also with high rich handsome right to are smoked daily life getting students love

I have rather low or should I be straight by saying no expectation toward the movie prior to its trailer and list of casts involved, and I was right, this movie is one of those I would advice only hardcore fan to watch.

The first turn off is of course the pretty boring plot with no different from other that is similar to its genre. It is a movie where a lookalike was hired to convince others in order to get a bigger / important deal done while the actual person was no where to be seen / found.

 Then it was the voice over that annoyed me. I understand that the male actor is from Korea and that he might not be speaking proper Chinese dialect thus need a voice over so that the audience can understand him. I'm fine with that but why would they do voice over for Cecilia Chueng too? Is it because her voice ain't soft/lady enough for the role she played?
There were nothing much I could write about the movie as every angle of it have been used / seen / written before and nothing special were added to at least make it interesting. Seriously I haven't watch a decent movie starring Cecilia Chueng lately, and the last I enjoyed was a movie she acted with Stephen Chow. Guess something is not right somewhere.

Excite your senses with LG Cinema 3D Smart TV

With 3D almost everywhere from my "2nd home" the cinema, to hand held device, to even the paper / card, it is not doubt that we are looking forward for a more "WOW" factor  when it comes to not just entertainment but also presentation.

Glad that there were already technology that improves on what we currently have by eliminating the need of travelling all the way to Cinema while preserving the WOW factor anytime desired.

LG, being one of the well known and trusted brand is proud to bring a new series of Cinema 3D Smart TV to every home pretty soon.

Why do you want to excite your senses with LG Cinema 3D Smart TV?

I was once so cling to the TV in my living hall, ask me anything or TV programme and I can answer you without any reference. So when I was introduced to the "PC" I slowly shift my addiction toward it. Honestly, my last impression about TV is as illustrated below
Yes the big bulky box that only have one way interaction. After witnessing the evolution of TV, I couldn't stop my urge to not just colourize my thought about TV but also have the urge to do more with it if I happen to own one.
While it is always my wish to smell Jessica Alba or feel the touch of Megan Fox from close distance, I have more fetish to disclose :D
I know some might hate me for stating this, but I do work from HOME. Thus I do have tons of free time to kill the responsibility to be mature and to have high level of self discipline. I have to be always on the standby for issues that occur anything from morning to night while I'm 'relaxing'.
 That's why LG Cinema 3D Smart TV is an all in one solution from leisure to work and vice versa. Beside which guy doesn't enjoy an ultimate huge screen during their "happy time"? Lol

I'm kinda looking forward to not just the package a LG Cinema 3D TV can offer but also am hoping to be invited to its party that will be happening late mid May 2012.

if you too wish to be part of the awesome happening, do take part. Details can be found on Nuffnang official blog site.

陣頭 (Din Tao)

Special thank to Yuberactive for the awesome invite to Gala Premiere of 陣頭 (Din Tao in Hokkien) at Pavilion Kuala Lumper on Monday night.
Din Tao is a Taiwan based movie that earned its fame with its stunning opening sales and have carried over RM30 million in box office sales! Directed by Fung Kai, an award winner of Best Director for Taiwan's TV series.

Synopsis: Performer Allen Ko plays A-tai, a young man who dreams about becoming a rocker in the US. He quits school in Taipei and returns to his Taichung hometown before following his heart's desire. A-tai has never been on good terms with his father, Uncle Da (Chen Po-cheng, better known as A-hsi), who runs a dintao troupe. The father and son never make an effort to understand one another, and quarrel each time they meet. But Uncle Da has other things to worry about. While his company struggles to make ends meet, long-standing rival Wu Cheng (Liao Chun) and his troupe meet with success and popularity. Irked by Wu's arrogance, A-tai decides to take the troupe's demoralized members on a countrywide walk in search of inspiration to revamp the traditional folk art form.
Do note that since it is from Taiwan and the directed is known for its Hokkien drama series, majority of the movie speak in the Hokkien dialect.
Personally I think it wasn't a bad start for this Taiwan based movie after "The apple of my eye" but there were still plenty of room for improvement. Good thing it is not as draggy as how the Hokkien drama would, but again it wasn't quite straight to the point with scene just to sum up the total screening time.
Like any good movie, there were drama and success in it. However it is sad that it concentrate less on the key ingredient even in its epic final performance.

Rate: 2.5/5
