Recent Films :: Transformers 2

Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen
★★★★★★☆☆☆☆ (6/10)

Imax is the way to go if you're into great visual effects with "Summer blockbuster" written all over it. So I checked online for seats and HOLYSHIT was the place packed. At least 2 weeks down the chart for times outta office hours. Then tonight I was suppose to be on a boat fishing squids at Sai Kung but no, they had to stamp a typhoon signal on your teli when the weather is in mint condition. With a few showers...So, all that magically leads a path to watch Transformers, and~~

It was soso. Maybe it's the hype jinx thingy but the plot was way unpolished. Felt like it was extracted from an 80's cartoon episode. So there ain't much to say about that. Visuals were top notch though, like the holy kind. So it wasn't too bad for me coz I'm into those things and the effects alone got me quite busy. Just one thing though......↓


Gets you even busier coz now your focus is pinned in one area of the screen. Found myself missing out a lot of cool stuff on other areas of the screen coz of her. A bunch of moving screws are nice, but honestly when she's bouncing around....

I have no idea who these guys are nor listened to them before. Just know this MV(PV) hit me hard so I decided to look these guys up. Well, they're out with their first mini album "Water Flavor EP". Probably not gonna dig in but this vid is off the hook.

UPDATE: The video was taken down at Vimeo so here's a YouTube version. DAMMIT.

Recent Films :: Ice Age 3

Ice Age 3: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs
★★★★★★★☆☆☆ (7/10)

Not sure how it is on the West but down here in the short future 3D is the shit. D-A-S-H-I-T.

It's so BIG you can't choose if you want to wear em ugly BIG 3D shades or not anymore. You can't find a cinema that doesn't sport 3D. Anywhere. Therefore the hole in your wallet is automatically BIGGER as well. To my surprise the 3D effects were pretty good though compared to the previous animation I saw and you can't go wrong with Scrat. Every detail was well executed but the jokes were fityfity. There were good laughs but there were some that really represents the movie title. Good movie and all with nice 3D effects...

But the thing is, when all cinemas sport shades and other options are eliminated, it feels kind of forceful. Especially when the shades are designed for people without glasses. You have to forcefully fit it somehow so the edges hang on your damn frames and you have to be real careful with your head movement so it doesn't slip off. So now you have 2 layers of frame on your face. The existence of it kinda takes away my conscience from the movie and I found myself trying to position the shades once in a while. Chinese have relatively flat noses so don't expect them to stand on firmly either. Either the shades need to be highly developed so they fit like a glove universally OR they should just stop this 3D bull coz although the effects are good it is not worth the extra 80% we're paying for the tickets.

All in all the film is good.
