Monday, 21 December 2009


Well, this movie took 15 years in the making and became one of the biggest movie of the year 2009. So, can this movie impress viewers? Yes, it already had.

James Cameron is a very good writer and director, he showed that in Avatar. The pacing of the story is a bit off the pace but as soon as the story progresses, the pace is back to normal. James Cameron done some great lengths to make the Na Vi's world, Pandora believable with scientific explanation and the motives of humans to have war against them there.

To cut the cost down, most of the actors and actresses in the movie, but those actors really played their part nicely. I really think the lead, Sam Worthington, could be a good actor after stealing the limelight from Christian Bale from Terminator Salvation and play lead role in this.

Well, we all wanted to see the movie because of the gorgeous graphics, especially with 3-D. Since the revival of 3-D, this is the most beautiful 3-D movie yet. The Pandora world is so realistic that I starting to believe the crew actually go there and shoot the movie. With coulourful objects and realistic CGI of Na Vi, the whole movie is purely CGI... And it is really gorgeous movie.

Besides the off pacing at the beginning of the movie, James Cameron has done it again to prove he is one of the best out there.

Verdict 4.8/5

Princess and the Frog

I've seen it, and my sis wanna kill me...

Anyway, I actually had no plans to watch this movie. Me and my friend was actually planning to go to Red Box for karaoke session, but we ended up watching this movie instead because Red Box was full.

I didn't like Disney's animations for past few years because I think some of them are pretty boring and doesn't have any good humour in it. But with Princess and the Frog, I like it!!! And I liked the decision Disney made to step back into traditional 2-D animations like The Lion King and Bambi.

The characters' are very lively and some of them are ridiculously funny, mixed with nice songs and musicals. The story also tells us about love and friends, not greed, the story also has a very good pace of development and you won't feel rushed or crawl like a turtle.

I want to review it more, but I might end up spoiling it. In the end, it's one of the best Disney's animations of the past few years.

Verdict: 4.5/5

The Best Disaster Porn Yet

I watched this on premiere but I really don't have time posting the review because of the 9 subjects I've been studying all month long...

2012 is a disaster movie based on the myth that the world will come to an end in 2012 (Don't panic, it is really a myth, no science has yet to prove that), and loosely referred to the Mayan prophecy. The cast is basically made up of actors and actresses I never heard before, besides John Cusack, but in the end, the cast and their acting never got any big impact on these kind of movies anyway.

The plot is pretty much dumb, it's like the director have I-don't-what-you-think-of-the-story moment when he wrote it. So, the plot and story pretty much revealed at the trailers and the beginning of the movie, the world will end, many people die, most of the cast survive the freaking disaster... Anyone wants Academy Award winning potential movie? No, this is not for you...

What is the main recipe for a disaster movie? Hmmm... Oh, disasters!!! Well, the director, Roland Emmerich (disaster movies expert) has gone great length to make the disasters in 2012 so epic in sizes, the whole city came down, tsunamis all over the place blah, blah, blah... I am impressed with what I saw in the theathers, because I am a disaster movies fan. I like disaster movies because I like the whole city torn apart and the world is in chaos, those scenarios are never gonna happen in that size and disaster movies fueled my imagination. And the best part is, the size of the disasters in this movie might be the biggest yet in motion picture history. With good CGI touch, unbelievable...

So, in the end, nothing matter in disaster movies... Just disasters with enormous size is going to satisfy viewers. With disasters at it biggest size yet, the biggest disaster porn so far...

Verdict: 4/5

Orianthi Panagaris

Umm... Many people who watched Michael Jackson's This Is It will probably know her, she was the guitarist of MJ's planned 50 sold out concert in London.

Actually, she is a singer, which is not famous until the day the rehearsal videos leaked onto YouTube and she's getting more and more attentions these days...

This is one of her song from her new album (Believe):

Now, getting back to study...

This Is It

"Concert in Cinema?! Waste money leh...", this is mind of most Malaysians when we said about concert movies. I have doubt about This Is It because I didn't know whether it would be a hit, but since it is Michael Jackson, I said the movie will take off the concert movies genre in Malaysia... And I specially took out my study time to watch this movie.

There are two words I'm going to say "Absolutely Stunning!!!" I am amazed by those dancers, choreographers, musicians and MJ himself make those creative moves and those beats. Practice makes perfects, these words can describe them... Their dance moves and music, they just do it like saying ABC, vowing everyone...

Music videos like Smooth Criminal, Earth Song, They Don't Care About Us and Thriller are specially recreated for the concert. All those scenes and performance merged seamlessly and feels like it is coming from 1 stage... His rehearsal is even better than some of the live acts these days

I gotta say even though the movie is fun to watch, I feel sad too... Watching those scenes, we all knew at that time Michael was just hours away from his tragic death, and this is his last work. His ambition to create a magical concert for the audiences in the UK never happened. Those worked with him for the concerts must be shocked and sad, knowing their difficult auditions, practices and dreams to perform with him were shattered...

We have Elvis, The Beatles, but no one has ever match the magnitude the King of Pop created...
And we all won't know, when there will be another pop sensation like him. Probably 10 years? 20? 50? 100? We really won't know... The King of Pop's shoes is hard to fit in

Verdict: No Score (Incomparable)

Last Day of Ah Chow

Well, it's the last day we tuition at Ah Chow... Next month no more, as we all ready for SPM... We can no longer chat with him, listen to his nonsense and undoubtedly, his ridiculous jokes...

Ah Chow moments and quote (F4-F5):
  • "BM is not for human to study one"
  • "BM Literature, all stupid ending"
  • "Chiak Chao ar!!!"
  • "Put hen as your tattoo and those mob won't challenge you for a fight"
  • His face when can't fight back words we said at him
  • Keep praising his PS3 and Blu-Ray
  • Use Akon's Right Now as his ringtone
  • "BM A1 is impossible, aim A2 or B3 can liao" =.='''
  • Learned the art of spamming at facebook
  • A tech junkie, can't stop talking about tech at tuition

P.S. Mr. Chow, really don't want sell me PS3 meh?

District 9

P.S. After all this summer, the contenders of Movie of the Year fight very closely. It is really hard to choose the winner. But the choice is made, District 9 is the movie of the year. When I stepped out of the screenings of Star Trek, I said this is my movie of the year. But in the end of the summer, District 9 surprised me. It is one of the most original movie of the year in the year dominated by sequels, prequels and spin-offs. District 9 offered us emotions, story, character developments and entertainment all together. Star Trek and Up is not far behind though, these two are tied in No. 2 because Star Trek is the most entertaining movie of the year and Up is the best animation of the year. I didn't like Star Trek series, but after watching the new movie, I got sucked into the world of Star Trek. As for G.I. Joe and Transformers: ROTF, they didn't offer a compelling package for movie of the year, but they did offer entertainment and fun into it. Transformers could be a disappointment for movie goers who want a good story, but for people who are in for graphics and robots and hot chicks, this is the movie...

Video Games Now and Then: How big are the Differences?

Since video game created more than 30 years ago, a lot have changed over the years. From the Bubble Bobble my sisters love to the latest Uncharted 2 that has 96% average score from worldwide critics, and the legendary Mario to LittleBigPlanet. Things just keep changing...

Another video game I wanna let people see is Racing Game from my sisters' childhood, Pole Position from Atari and Gran Turismo 5 from PS3. No words can describe the changes over the years.

Pole Position:

Gran Turismo 5 featuring Ferrari 458 Italia:

What I want from Transformers 3...

Well, I love Transformers motion picture, I really do, with amazing CGI and awesome action sequences. But even giving 4.5/5 for the sequel, Revenge of the Fallen, I think the movie is really a failure. Because I'm for the works of people at Industrial Light & Magic (kudos to them), without giving actual ratings on other stuffs.

With Transformers 3 announced to be released in July 4th, 2011, director Michael Bay can make even better with certain point I want Transformers to change as of below:
  • Better story line - Come on, the story is really, I mean REALLY! Abysmal to look at. I never seen a mega blockbuster earning $800 million worldwide had such a horrible storyline. It features no developments and no emotional at all(I don't care at emotion but critics' review is can influence the mind of the audience). Even with Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, the pair behind the highly praised 2009 Star Trek can't make a story decent enough, the Revenge of the Fallen failed in storyline in a big way.
  • Kill Megan Fox's ccharacter Mikaela early in the movie - She's sexy, I admit, but she just ruined the host lead actress thingy, she is boring, bad acting, unfunny, and rude. Come on, many actress can do that and beat her easily. When I said to my friends during a conversation about Transformers, I said I want her dead in the sequel, some agreed, some don't. For those who don't, are you so desperate for a sexy girl? You can watch some chick flicks or even sit at Borders Bookstore and read FHM or Galaxie and you can find even more sexy girls, or even sexier than Megan Fox.
  • No more jokes with sexual suggestions - I mean it... For a movie to attract general audience, the jokes of the movie, especially Revenge of the Fallen, had stepped over the limit. Many parents and cinema goers, including me, will not take children to the cinema to watch it because of sexual suggested contents inside. If I'm the parents and plan to watch it with my children at the cinema, I would have scrapped the plans if the reviews of the movie has 8 complain about the sexual content out of 10. Even you put it on a male robot humping on female and show its testicles hanging around, Michael Bay in the end defended the film because the audiences are mostly 20s man. If a man crazy in this kind of stuff, he would rather watch pornography right? Who needs it in a blockbuster?
  • Use common sense DUDE!!! - Ya, I know this might be controversial but this is error is too big to ignore it, it is minor problem but it is a bit stupid. After all those Autobots and Decepticons fighting at the city in the first one, how come everyone don't know their existences after all those damages? Another US government conspiracy? It is a bit too huge to hide from the public eyes... During the 2 years in the story time line , no one has ever capture a full video or a full photo of the robots. They have, but they only captured the feet of the robots after the whopping 2 years!!!
These suggestions above could be rejected by people, but I think that is what I think Transformers (especially Revenge of the Fallen) is lacking. I hope Michael Bay make at least some of the changes and make the movie more epic.

Gran Turismo PSP Review

It's been five years since the first announcement of the game was made. Along this years with no updates or anything whatsoever, many media already consist this game is a vaporware. In June 2009, a new announcement was made, Gran Turismo PSP has finally arrived. But, is the game worth the wait after all this year? Crasher Khoo here think yes, it is...

Every time we say about this game, we always say the graphics. No racing games, or any other games can rival the photorealistic graphics of the series. In PSP, it is one of the best portable graphics out there. It may not rival PS3 with its superior graphic capability, it is certainly look a lot better in PSP's tiny widescreen. It certainly look gorgeous on Sony's portable platform. THUMBS UP!

The Corvette ZR-1 makes a very good impression here, and it is sexy!

With more than 800 cars and 35 tracks to choose from, Gran Turismo is not a game to get bored easily. It does feel a bit boring at the beginning, with only a slow and uninspired BMW 120d in your garage and 10k of credits available. Classic company marques like Ferrari, Bugatti, Lamborghini made debut here, the car list has ever more cars than the upcoming release like Forza Motorsport 3 for the XBOX 360, which only have a mere 400 cars available.

Lamborghini finally made its debut in the GT series

The car dealers format in Gran Turismo Mobile (unofficial name) has its advantage and disadvantage, with only 4 dealers available every time you play. The good things is the players will always play the game to wait for the car they want. The main problem is you might miss the car you want if you don't have enough credit for the car you really want and will always skip if you don't want the car. I played the game until I have 1,500,000 credit and I miss my chance for a 8 million credit Ferrari F2007 F1 car. Geez...

The game also lack a proper career mode. In old GT, you'll need to obtain licenses from driving school to get your racing career up and running. Now the driving school is just a mere bonus game for extra credits. According to its creator, Kazunori Yamauchi, the game new format is to suit the portable platform as people will only play for a short time, in contrast to the console version.

Nothing to praise about here, the game features a lot of sounds effect for each and different cars. I am curious with the Toyota Prius, because it is a hybrid car, it doesn't make a lot of sound, so does the game only have tires sounds when the car is running? hehehez

No Money no Talk, 8 million or walk away

One of the bad points of the game is the soundtrack. How on earth the soundtrack is created, repetitive lyrics, bad groove and it doesn't help you into RACING MODE!!!

Lasting Appeal
I think the game will have an incredible lasting appeal, with more than 800 cars available, and a variety of tracks. This game will not get bored very easily, it will certainly call out to its owners, "COME BACK FOR MORE!"

This is just the virtual tracks, there's more

GT certainly makes a very good and competitive debut at the PlayStation Portable. And it is a very good Gran Turismo 5 PS3 appetizer.

Pros: Godzillion of cars available, classic virtual and real world track remains and lots of varieties to choose from, warm up to PS3 Gran Turismo 5, Ferrari, Bugatti, Lamborghini makes it into the game

Cons: Still no damage, car dealers might not suit some people, no proper career mode, license mode is now an bonus game, Porsche is still not here, repetitive soundtrack

Verdict: 4/5

Prototype Review

I finished the game last week and I have a lot of fun in the game's fallen New York City. The game offers tons of fun for you to enjoy in the city.

You play as Alex Mercer, a mutated human who can shapeshift and "consume" human. In the game, New York has been attack by a virus that turn everyone into zombie-like and Alex Mercer has no memory of himself. With his power and connection to the virus, he must find out the truth.

Playing the game is absolute fun for me. For starters, Alex has a lot of power than shapeshift and consuming, it also have claws like Wolverine, whip, giant blade, musclemass for you to transform into. In the game, using this power is fun, slashing the infected and Hunters, killing military personnel. Like any games set in New York, fighting is fun!

One of the major flaw of the game is combat sometimes feels too easy, especially military personnel and Hunters. Boss fight is a bit too hard consider the combat with other enemy is easy, making the game somewhat unbalanced.

Verdict: 4/5

This is the reason I wanna get a PlayStation 3

Look at this, it's mind blowing. This PS3 video shows Gran Turismo 5 featuring the yet to be released Ferrari 458 Italia in HD at 2009 Tokyo Game Show... I want!!!


Watched G-Force yesterday with Atles and Xin Chen at Gurney Plaza for a 3-D treat. G-Force is a story about a bunch of Guinea Pigs trying to be Special Agent in the FBI.

As you know, story like that always failed, because it is too predictable. But the story is very attractive to kids because got Guinea Pigs and FBI, which many kids love to see these stuff these days. Like most of the Disney movie, it features comedy with crazy characters. At here, they done it again, even though the story utterly failed, but you can laugh at the cinema.

If you like modern music, you are in for a treat too. This movie features song like Boom Boom Pow, I Gotta Feeling, Jump and much more...

If you want to watch this movie, I opt you to choose the 3-D version. The 3-D in this movie really outperformed other 3-D movie this year. Sadly my friend, Atles, can't see the difference. Maybe he needs to watch more 3-D to really settle down.

Verdict: 3/5

Batman: Arkham Asylum

I had doubts when I saw this game, even after high praise from medias all over the world, because superhero adaptation based game never be good. So, I set myself getting this game and play it, and the result is the game unexpectedly awesome!

First, the story is just incredible. The story written is dark and able to get the gamers wanted more of the story. The story writing just feel like The Dark Knight in video game. And the voice acting is superb too, everyone is very realistic with their role....

Secondly, the gameplay is simple and nice. Batman fighting combo and melee attack is just 3 mouse click only, you don't need different buttons to form better attack.

You just have to try this game. Trust me... Full review might not coming, I will immersed to the world and might never came back...

Jeff Dunham

If you reading this blog, you might not know about this guy, but now you know it. Jeff Dunham, a stand-up comedian from the US, he is currently one of the most popular people is YouTube. He is very, very talented comedian, he can do a puppet show, jokes and even talk to one or two puppets, INCREDIBLE!!!

I really don't know anything about him, but until my sister borrowed DVD from her boss. When we watched it, we laughed until tears started flowing down from our eyes... So hilarious that I can't drink for couple of moments because I keep spitting out!!!

Here's one of his popular videos on the internet, featuring one of his puppet, Achmed The Dead Terrorist:

#I wrote this a long time ago, but didn't finish it. Today, I finally added finishing touch and voi'la!!!

I do not mean about a girl... Look below:

It's STAR WARS!!! A series that being loved by millions of sci-fi fans worldwide, including me and my two elder sisters. Although the original trilogy is not from my generation, but my sisters are, they usually "organize" a 3-part marathon during school holidays. I was a young, small boy back then, so I have many time to watch with them. Since that first time, I fell in love with this series that is full of lightsaber, droids, space craft and many more that seems skeptical 30 years ago.

Original Trilogy:
Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope

The first in the series. The first thing I really love about this movie is the opening, with the STAR WARS logo flashing in and out then a 3 paragraphs of prologue story coming out. After the word flashed out, it then shows a long, long movement of extremely huge Imperial Star Cruiser, making all the viewers shocked and awe. Then the camera show inside of the ship the Star Cruiser is chasing, where one tall, talkative C-3pO describe it's fear with R2-D2 around. Then the Star Cruiser moving in for the kill, killing all soldiers in the ships. The tall and powerful Darth Vader walked out of the door, and that villain is so COOL!!! Below the ships, on the planet Tatooine, Ben Kenobi shows Luke Skywalker the ways of the force and lightsabers, the civil war between Empire and Rebels.

I don't wanna talk too much here, don't wanna spoil too much for friends who haven't watch.

And here is the opening crawl I really love:

Star Wars Episode V: Empire Strikes Back

The best blockbuster ever made, this is how good I describe this movie! The movie is tense, full of drama, and most of all, full of actions. With the story progress so smoothly, then added the line "No, I am your father." That is shocking at first, but for me, not at all lah! Watch tons of times already... xD

Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi

After you saw the previous two, this is the worst, still exceptionally awesome, because the two is just have the near perfect status. This is the last part of the story tells the end, where the Luke fights Lord Vader and the Emperor for the last time. On the ground, Rebel fights off the final battle of the civil war against the Empire troops.

Prequel Trilogy
Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace

After those few years waiting for the new Star Wars, George Lucas gave me this mediocre new installment to the series. The young Anakin is too boring too watch. Who wants to watch the dumb the podrace, the Tatooine struggle???? And one thing, the stupid annoying Gungan, Jar Jar Binks talks so much that a buzzing of a fly is more worth it. But got one thing to love though, the lightsaber duel. The previous duel is just slow pace sword fighting, but this time around, Qui-Gon and the young Obi-Wan (Ben Kenobi) fights the Darth Maul.

Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones

I rated this the worst Star Wars in history! Not even The Phantom Menace came close, so that's how bad. Think the podrace is awful? Think again, the teen Anakin Skywalker fell in love with the never seem to age Padme Amidala is just too awful to watch. Who wants love story in Star Wars? I don't think anyone wants to... One thing to love this though, Jar Jar Binks is talking about only ten lines, story of Stormtroopers is told...

Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

The best Star Wars since Empire Strikes Back. This should not considered to be in the prequel trilogy story though, because George Lucas wrote this story before A New Hope was written. That means George Lucas is too old for movie making. The story sums up what begins and what continue at A New Hope. Darth Vader is born, Republic has turned to Galactic Empire, and how Darth Vader got his suit and how Leia and Luke was born...

The 2 prequels might be bad, but I still love Star Wars like I did when I was a young boy. I will never forget this extraordinary sci-fi series. There is love and hate with the movie, but I know how to control my hate, like Luke with the Force... haha ;p

Summer's Top 10 Movies*

Well, summer's over... I mean in US lah, Malaysia always in Summer mode, is over... We have been invaded by tons of tons of summer blockbusters and we paid a lot for it. So, I watched the explosive movies more to justify the RM 10 I paid. So here's my list:

  1. Star Trek
  2. Up
  3. District 9
  4. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
  5. Ice-Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs
  6. G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra
  7. Monsters vs Aliens
  8. Fast & Furious
  9. X-Men Origins: Wolverine
  10. Night at the Museum 2:... (I don't know the subtitles)
Don't criticize my post. If you watch comedy and deserves in the lists, I didn't watch them cuz I wait for DVD. Harry Potter too, I wait... Sorry, Christian Bale, your most anticipated movie didn't make the cut, and James Cameron should feel sorry not to direct it.

*No study interruption occured during the process of this writing ( I finished studying before doing this)

Double Shot of Trailers

I bring two movie trailer today... One is 2012 and another one is Avatar.

I just love sci-fi movies and I like disaster movies a lot, 2012 is my type of movie. Talking about old civilisation (Maya), predict that the world will end in 2012, creating bunch of chaos. The movie is directed by the director of Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow and stars John Cusack.

Another movie I wanna show you is Avatar. Maybe you guys never heard of this movie but I heard it since Terminator Salvation: The Making, where the lead Sam Worthington also play lead actor in this movie. I highly anticipated this movie because it is directed by James Cameron, who was behind the success of The Abyss, The Titanic (the highest grossing film of all time) and The Terminator... This is not a trailer but a mere teaser.

Happy 52nd Merdeka!!!

August 31st, 1957 is a special day in every Malaysians heart. On this day, British finally ended their "stay" in Malaysia and Tunku Abdul Rahman shout 'MERDEKA!' at Stadium Merdeka. We finally gained Independence on that day.

Now it August 31st, 2009, 52 years had passed and we're all still here enjoying freedom from other empires. Our country is peaceful, there is no war, no disasters, everyone having a normal life. But, I have to say our country is still not perfect, but with more unity with every community on this land, we can achieve it.

My Merdeka wish:
  • No more political unrest, please fight for votes fairly and less arguments between parties
  • Improve Proton's quality (they are showing signs of improvement), keep up!!!
  • Make change in our education system and stick with it for decades please!!!
  • Less corruption
But, anyway...

Review: Up (1 to 200)

I've been a Pixar fan ever since Toy Story came out, their story never never fails. If you look back all those animations: Cars, WALL-E, Monsters. INC, The Incredible etc... Every movie they make is a masterpiece, so the expectation is extremely high for me...

Like any other Pixar films, I wasn't disappointed. The story is extremely well written and the new 3-D feature make it even worth watching it. There are several scene that is funny and imaginative, it can really make you think back of your childhood imagination where you go for an adventure flying with your house.

Verdict: This review is ridiculously short, you know why? There is nothing to complain about, and I'm speechless to write all the details. Another big hit from PIXAR!!!!!!

Score: 5/5 (PIXAR never got a film that is less than 4.9)

Twitter (2 to 200, damn close!!!)

Twitter, a new Internet phenomenon, which it has cutting down Facebook and MySpace dominance in the social network (not Friendster though, it looks dead to me). So what so special about this site that makes every celebrity and company in the whole wide world so crazy about.

In case you don't know, Twitter is micro blogging site where everyone tweet their messages and post it there. It is just like Facebook, without apps or other web pages. I am very curious why this concept is so well-received site, so I created an account (username: crasher7) and started using. After months of using, I think it is crap!!!

First of all, there's nothing. In Facebook or even Friendster, we can chat with friends, applications, online gaming all under one roof. In twitter, you can only post, bloody boring!

Another one is popularity counts!!! If you are a celebrity or politician or some other sensation, Twitter is the kind of thing you should have. You can post your recent updates for your fans and followers to see. If you are not popular at all, they won't follow you or see your latest postings, except you are showing nudity or sexual images on your profile...

So, in the end, Facebook is by far a better and far more superior social networking site. I like Twitter, but I just think that it needs more features, or else it is plain boring.

Review: District 9 (3 to 200)

When I saw the poster, I wanna watch this because of two reasons:
  1. I love sci-fi movie
  2. This movie is produced by Peter Jackson (the man behind the mind blowing Lord of the Ring series)
Me and my sister had to watch at Pacific, because it is classified 18-SG and stupid TGV Seberang Perai won't show the movie, have to tahan those low quality seats and the almost 4:3 ratio screen...

The movie started in documentary style, and I have to say the move is bold because the documentary style makes us believe that the aliens really landed on our planet, interviewing people and life with aliens, after they were taking refuge on South Afrika... Then the story takes place on so called alien agency agent, Wikus, who was ordered to persuade aliens to move away from the city.

I have to say this movie takes a different view of aliens landing on Earth, every movie are usually invasion, enslave and war with the humans. This though, they put the aliens on the struggle to survive on Earth and their consequences... And the movie ended in a well written but cynical tone, very sad...

It is worth a watch for this well-written and sad sci-fi movie. For me, it place high above the chart...

Verdict: 5/5
