Got a new webcam

Got a new webcam for my PC today. As you all know, I use Windows 7 for my desktop, so I got a lot of software update to made my stuff compatible with it. Unfortunately, my old webcam is bought from China by my sister, which ONLY support the classic XP, so I have to buy a new one... Geez!!!


The new one is Logitech C200, with microphone and 1.3 MP camera...

 The box of it...

Fits perfectly onto my monitor... =)

What about the old one?

Making new friends with the rubbish I guess

This is the Way to Excite Your Testosterone

No, I don't mean that, I mean a movie to excite that... An action movie that consist of 3 action stars, 1 Kung Fu master, 2 Martial Art Champions, 1 professional wrestler and 1 retired American football player. Besides that, got 2 more classic action stars making a cameo appearance together. Tell me, is there a way to get your ____ excited if you don't get excited by this...

This movie is called The Expendables, which is right now I think is the biggest cast ever assembled in recent years. It stars (Drum Roll Please) Sylvester Stallone (Rambo), Jason Statham (The Transporter), Jet Li (Lethal Weapon 4), Dolph Lundren, Randy Couture (both Martial Art Champions), Steve Austin (Professional Wrestler), Terry Crews (NFL Player) and Mickey Rourke (Iron Man 2). The cameo I mentioned earlier are Bruce Willis (Die Hard) and Arnold Schwarzenegger (The Terminator). This could be the manliest movie in the history of the industry.

For a movie with this scale, I opt to go for the action and a lot less emphasize on the story. For a movie like this, the action is superb. Explosions, bone crushing, dismemberments, knife throwing and cursing are all in the movie. All the set pieces and sequences are so nicely arranged, it feels very smooth and makes you say "Woah, that's cool!". If you are in for action, this is the perfect movie for you this year!!!

The story is just as typical as any other action films, a story to trigger a hell lot of action scenes, but with the star cast that big, it could have been better. I do like some of their dialogues, they feel cheesy and use it as comic relief of the film. My particular favourite dialogue is where Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger in the scene church talking about contracts, mocking each other and refer each other's films. I had few good laughs on that scene.

The sound effect is brilliant as well. With a good theater room, you can really enjoy the explosions and those action scene whoosing and booming around you. I highly recommend this movie for cinema viewing...

Conclusion, The Expendable is one of the summer biggest highlight, and it succeed to deliver. For those who is looking for a classic action film, this is it.

Verdict: 4/5

P.S. This is really an 18 movie. I mean, seriously...
