Looper

Special thank to Ivan Chan from http://discoveringivanium.blogspot.com/ for the pair of invite to Looper gathering screening with Country Garden at GSC Pavilion on a lovely Saturday night
Notice the clock like icon on the first "O" from the word Looper? Yeah, you've guessed right, the movie is about time travel, and most of the time there might be a mess in understanding and digesting the whole story. I would try my best not to leak the surprise element that would be spoiler to you.
Here's a synopsis from IMDB
In 2072, when the mob wants to get rid of someone, the target is sent 30 years into the past, where a hired gun awaits. Someone like Joe, who one day learns the mob wants to 'close the loop' by transporting back Joe's future self.
It started off interestingly with plot that keeps you wonder why you would wanna kill your future self, why can't you time travel the inception style to fix things, and several other questions in mind to be clear off.
It anyway begin with the story siding on the younger Joe staring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, introducing his assignment routine and his lifestyle as a looper. Pace started to build up when the plot introduces "Closing the loop" where details shall be explained in the movie. 
To me, the pace slowed down and turned into hundred minutes of story telling and draggy scene when future Joe (Bruce Willis) was sent to present Joe to be assassinated. 
There were of course, future Joe having to escape and work below radar while present Joe being tracked by the mob, but most of the scene weren't about fire gun and ass kicking scene but more toward the new character build up and future Joe's lifestyle and so on.
Once you, the audience find out what's really happening, I bet you would think this is just yet another typical time travel movie or at least I did. It is just another way of executing the almost familiar plot we've probably seen with different cast and technology. I wouldn't say that it is a bad movie, but I think the word draggy fits perfectly and it wasn't that 'mastermind' either.

Tai Chi 0

Tai Chi 0 or also known as Tai Chi Zero, whichever name it is, it doesn't matter cause it is the content and plot that make a good movie. 3 night straight watching permiere movie and on Wednesday night I watched Tai Chi Zero at GSC Mid Valley
From the trailer, you would notice that it have quite some big name in it with great amount of CG integrated too. Well there are all true where the movie tend to jam pack every single element you can find from different genre of movie. There were comedy, action, CG, love, sob story, childhood, kung fu and bla bla bla.
While I admire the unique and rather fresh of artwork in the movie, the plot was kinda like a spoiler that ruin everything.
The game like scene can really be something but it is also a joke at the same time. I must admit that this is one of the few chinese movie where the CGI managed to blend in almost perfectly. With that aside, the plot is very, and I do mean very very draggy with very details character introduction.
Yes from the poster or the trailer you might have already guess correctly that this would be an east vs west in a battle scene. Now what you least expect is the weird choice of background music like in the trailer. Do expect some fella battling it out the Kung Fu style while metal rock music is played. I'm just speechless. What's more when I find out Tai Chi 2 will be out in October which is just less than a month ahead. This is one of the artistic movie where I couldn't really enjoy much though.

Genting Reward Card

Some of you may already know the loyalty programme in Genting, but do you know that World Card is recently re-branded as Genting Reward Card?
Although it has been re-branded as Genting Reward Card, member still get to enjoy the same privilege as they do during the World Card era.
 Whether it is prize redemption, point collection, exclusive promotion and plenty more, there's more then 1 excuse why you should be part of it. Here's a list of other benefits you could really enjoy from
https://www.worldcard.com.my/v4/default.aspx and for those non muslim you might want to check this out too http://www.rwgenting.com/en/casino/worldcard.htm
So what are you waiting for? I've collected 11K worth of point and these point can be redeem as free accommodation, buffet lunch / dinner at its classy restaurant like coffee terrace, gifts and other cool gadget.

Dangerous Liaisons (危險關係)

Scored some invites to the movie Dangerous Liaisons at MBO Viva Home yesterday night where I have to once again fight through the after office hour rush to reach the venue which is quite a distance from where I stay.
While some friend of mine would choose location and/or movie, I would be one of the few who would travel within my will just so that I could add the movie passes to my collection despite knowing it is not my cup of tea.
The movie is set in 1930s Shanghai and stars South Korean actor Jang Dong-gun and Chinese actresses Zhang Ziyi and Cecilia Cheung.
The story evolved around a playboy who is weathly meets his ex-girlfriend, and make a bet with her on seducing and abandoning an innocent widow.
The bet turn ugly when feeling started to pour in and yeah I know it sound familiar. Anyway things doesn't go as planned where the consequences took more than just a broken heart.
Surprisingly the censorship board in Malaysia let loose on this movie where several 'explicit' (in Malaysian way) scene were screened.
I find the movie rather bored simply because there were way too many old school seductive tricked used and it is played around the same person again and again. The whole movie focuses on the fake courtship which turn ugly when the card is flipped upside down.
The film was screened in the Directors' Fortnight section at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, the Busan International Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival and I was expecting something different.

Rate: 2/5

Do hurry as they don't just give out passes to the halloween horror spirits 2012 but also hotel accomodation. This is not something you wanna miss.

Hotel Transylvania 2D

It was a very last minute that I manage to score some invites to the premiere screening of Hotel Transylvania in 2D which I prefer more than 3D because at least I get to enjoy sharp and crisp clear screening.
The plot evolves around Dracula who built a huge hotel catering to the needs of every other monster that is available out there to have a safe and sound from human. Things doesn't stay his way when a backpacker happen to step foot into the human-proof hotel.
By now you should briefly get the idea on how the adventure would happen in hotel translyvania between human and the monsters.
Despite having big name like Selena Gomez, Adam Sandler and others, I personally think it is just to attract people to watch the movie.
To me everything is kinda familiar and predictable and some other scene was given out on their trailer. The only fun part is to see how crazy each monster would be.
