Review: Star Trek/Monsters vs. Aliens

I have to say, I never watched Star Trek in my life before, if I got watched it, it must be for a mere few minutes... Then today I have a chance to watch why the series have such a large fanbase, and I know why now...

Many things of this movie is spot on, even though they try to make a prequel. Most of the movies need you to watch the "Sequel" before you head to the cinema, but this is different, you don't need much knowledge about the previous movies.

Besides the cast is fantastic, every cast emulated the original characters and casts flawlessly. My favourite is Zachary Quinto (pic, above) doing the characters Spock, his dark and serious characters caught my attention as he is one of the factors the movie is so successful. And the new Captain Kirk immature way of handling troubles but the movie back on a balance, the other cast also makes it fansinating. Evil Captain Nero (Eric Bana) is also excellent in this movie.

I also need to give the credit to director J. J. Abrams, who made this flawless movie. Prequel never been able to match with their counterpart or other movies, but he makes it very easily. I never seen any prequel like that before. Mixing different emotions like anger, sadness, happiness and so much other things into 2 hours of movie is very very very spot on!!! He also revive the Space Opera genre, which seems lost after the end of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

I might not give a lengthy review of the movie, but for one thing, this is one of the best movies I've seen. Spot on and flawless, it is worth your time for it...

Verdict: 5/5 (MUST WATCH!!!)

I gotta say, I've been waiting Monsters vs. Aliens ever since I saw the trailer, very funny, and the show had lived up the expectations of the preview I saw. The show is 100% laughing from the beginning to the end of the movie (or shall I say animations), the struggle of Sarah and the stupidity of other characters tackle the Aliens made me always wanna spit out my drink inside the cinema. The funniest characters in the movie is B.O.B. (Bicarbonate Ostylezene Benzoate), genetically-altered tomato was injected with a chemically-altered ranch dessert topping. His greatest strength lies in his ability to devour and digest any substance as well as being indestructible. His one weakness is that his mutation didn't give him a brain, making him unable to think by himself, which made up most of the jokes.

Verdict: 4/5 (It's a must too) Laughness is guaranteed from top to bottom

David Cook - Permanent

I really like this song... The song is written about David's brother, who passed away few weeks back after long battle with cancer, very meaningful song...

Is this the moment where
I look you in the eye?
Forgive my
broken promise that you`ll never see me cry
And everything
It will surely change
Even if I tell you I won`t go away today

Will you think that you`re all alone
When no one`s there to hold your hand?
And all you know seems so far away
And everything is temporary
Rest your head
I`m permanent

I know he`s living in hell
Every single day
And so I ask, oh God
Is there some way for me to take his place?
And when they say it`s all touch and go
I wish I could make it go away

But still you say
Will you think that you`re all alone
When no one`s there to hold your hand?
When all you know seems so far away
And everything is temporary
Rest your head
I`m permanent
I`m permanent

Is the moment where I look you in the eye?
Forgive my promise that you`ll never see me cry...

My Cousins

Both of my sisters and ah yuan have blogged about this not so long ago. I have been busy recently with my exam so I took this weekend night as an opportunity to write about it...

I have a group of cousins that we are all very close together. We did not physically grow up together and we only see other on every weekend or every fortnight. As we grow older, some of us went to other places for studies or work, but most of us still stay in the Penang area...

There is a special bond between us that bring us together... We're always looking forward to meet each other during Chinese New Year and activities like hanging out with them, like shopping, playing games, watching movies and etc...

I always think relationship between cousins was supposed to be like that until I saw all my friends, they rarely hang out with their cousins. Some of them rarely talk to each other even in same school, chim ar!!!

I like our cousins to cousins love, like Ah Wei said in her blog too... We don't have age boundaries or generation gap, from a one year old to a 30 years old!!!

Amelia, Brendon, Clifford, Christopher, Charles, Sara, Steven, Sonia, Harry, Katherine, Matthew..

Transformers TV Spots Triple Attacks!!!

For those who can't get enough of Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, and gigantic interstellar shape-shifting robots, Hollywood director Michael Bay is here to help. He's released a trio of new television spots for the upcoming summer blockbuster, Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen. I like the 2nd video the most, cuz it feels epic!!! We might just see it in Malaysian TV soon...

Star Trek... Curious

I'm going to watch this year Star Trek movie, because I never got any chance to watch any of the series because our local TV possibly never show it before. I need to see what so special about the movie that it attracted so many viewers and fans to watch it for more than a few decades!!! I know Star Wars is very popular cuz I watch it a lot and I am a fan...

So, I really wonder why the series is so popular... I really have to watch the latest movie I guess...

Running Out of Creativity?

I'm very sick of Chinese automakers already!!! Even before they make it to our country, but their car really sucks!!! Just a knockoff of cars made by popular automakers like BMW, Toyota, Honda, Porsche and even the classic Rolls-Royce.

Here is some of the original cars they copied:

And the fake cars from Chines automakers are:

I mean come on, can't they just make an original yet special car? Do they need to copy stuff? Come on, make something that can shock the world like Tata Nano.

NEC S970

Got my laptop yesterday... This is not a more than a thousand ringgit laptop (once was), now it is a clearance by NEC, which is closing down operation soon...

It doesn't look like a very high-end laptop, but for a couple of hundreds bucks, it's a bargain for whatever the specs is... xD
