Inspirational Movies

Here are some inspirational movies that I gotta share with you guys.
These movies are bold, enlightening and also portraying the many taboo topics that the society often refuse to talk about.

Let's start with
1. 3 Idiots



This Indian movie surprised its audience with many funny, heart-moving, and encouraging scenes.
The story revolves around 3 college students who are facing many college life hardships.
Topics of the darker side of education was audaciously ventured.
Go watch it for yourself. It's really funny and it has a plot twisted ending.
There are lots of inspiring quotes in the movies. Ponder and remember them.

2. PK



Also starring Aamir Khan and produced by the same company, another hilarious and exceptionally inspiring movie. This time, the main theme is religion, a very sensitive topic, and yet the whole team managed to pull it off so brilliantly.

The main character, an alien embarks on a journey to find God in order to retrieve his remote control to his spaceship.The story is depicting the real situation in India, where a lot of false God existed.
Last time, a pastor from India once said, "They even have beetle as gods."
I like the movie's ost "Chaar Kadam", "Love is a waste of time" and "Nanga Punga Dost".


3. Like Stars On Earth / Taare Zameen Par



Directed, produced and starred by Aamir Khan, Like Stars On Earth tells the story of a boy with dyslexia. Dyslexia is a condition where the sufferer has trouble recognizing words, also known as reading disorder. I bet that not many people are aware of this disorder including parents. Did you know that famous people like Einstein is dyslexic? I was completely mind blown when I discovered this. This movie tells us that the impossible can become possible. Go watch it.

All these 3 Indian flicks are available in Youtube. And I have to say, Indian movies tend to be a bit longer, they like to dance and sing every now and then. So just enjoy the entire movie.

Last but not least, a non Indian inspirational flick,

4. Prayers For Bobby



Based on true story, Bobby, a young gay man, who couldn't face the homophobic family and community, was depressed and ended up killing himself. I came across this movie during a course mate's presentation on homosexuality. Since then, I'm interested in LGBT matters and also fell in love with sociology because this subject ventures into many controversial social issues. Some might deem that this is scandalous, especially among the religious ones, but I would like to say that, just watch it as an eye opener. I actually shed a tear while watching this 2 minute trailer.


Hope that you guys enjoy all these inspiring flicks.

Plot twist movies

Recently, I got bored of romantic comedies as the plot are always the same.
A couple met, fought, fell in love with each other, got married, and lived happily ever after. The end.
Hence, I just switched my taste and preferences to plot twisted movies.
If you enjoy movies with a huge plot twist like me, then these are for you.

1. The Mask of Love 2012 (The movie poster is too eerie to be posted)

2. The Chrysalis 2013


These 2 are non-paranormal horror movies, although there are a few scary scenes, but a huge pillow would help you to endure throughout the entire movie. 

3. Side Effects 2013


This psychological thriller doesn't have a single scary scene, and yet it manages to thrill the audience until the ending. Worth watching! Male lead: Jude Law

If you're not a horror/psychological thriller fanatic, then these 2 comedy movies will surely catch your fancy.

4. 3 Idiots 2009


5. PK 2014


Enjoy!

A totally different Spy

I gotta share this new movie that I just watched. (Spoiler alert!)





It is freakin hilarious and awesome!!!! (Though I would prefer them to tone down on the f word.)

I have watched so many spy movies, and none of them is hilarious as this one, and this includes Johnny English. (Sorry Mr. Atkinson)

The movie is about a plus size CIA analyst who tries to go on field with given different eccentric identities to solve a mission after her crush/partner was assumingly dead.

Melissa McCarthy's portrayal of the lead makes her the perfect cast for the role of this movie.
As for Jason Statham, his comical role in Spy made me totally forgot that he was the bad ass villain in Fast and Furious 7. Oh and I like the character Albert portrayed by Peter Serafinowicz. He is just like a cherry on top of a cake.


This scene caused the entire audience to burst out in laughter.

Okay, that's all for now. I'm not gonna spill out the entire beans. Just watch it for yourself.
It is still available in cinema.
Trust me, it's worth watching.

Running Man, are they the real deal?

Hey, I'm back writing another post of Running Man.
Well I have so many things to express. See if I can cram all of it in one post.

I just watched the most recent episode of RM 247: Trick Gwang Soo episode. (Spoiler alert)
It was quite nice.

The RM members stormed into LKS's house without his consent.
They were doing mission of finding specific things, and Ji Suk Jin accidentally found porn in his computer. That part was really funny.

However, as the game goes on, LKS obviously noticed something fishy among the members. 


Hence, I'm not buying that LKS is tricked until the end of the episode. He would have totally discover it. I mean these members have been working together for 5 years. How could he possibly didn't discover the whole hidden camera thing?!

In Episode 60, similar to 247, the rest of the members have to trick Gary into believing that he is the spy. Gary did win the mission. However, in the last scene which he was seen smiling and walking strangely made the ending of the episode seemed ambiguous. Who is actually tricking who?


In my opinion, I'm pretty sure that Gary either knew or had discovered about it but just played along, and I think LKS just did the same.

I've been re-watching all the previous episodes of RM, and truth to be told, a lot of time, they are just purely acting, especially their exaggerated reaction of seeing the entrance of guest. Episode 162 totally revealed their acting of being surprised by guest after a short clip of the RM members practicing with the Idols was uploaded. Since then, I always have doubt whenever I watch RM.     



Anyhow, it doesn't matter if they are merely acting it or not, as a Running Man loyal fan, I will just "open one eye shut one eye" about it and always continue to support them.

More upcoming RM post, stay updated if you're a huge RM fan like me.

屋主

凡是在拉曼大学或拉曼学院读书的都知道,学校没有准备宿舍给学生住,学生只好找外面的屋子租。

不知不觉弟弟过去西马已经一个礼拜了,他也在 Setapak 找到价钱平等的房间。
但是,租的就只有房间,没错,除了四面墙壁,什么都没有。
这些屋主也未免太刻薄了吧?!

你明知道每一年数百位外地学生会到来这里租房子,连椅子桌子这些基本设备也没准备?!
你叫这些学生如何读书呢?!
没办法,学生们只好破费去买。
然后,读完书了以后,又要想办法把这些东西带回家。
因为如果留给下一代自己又吃亏,毕竟上一代也没有留下任何东西给我们。
住在西马的学生还好,至少可以用车载回家。
那么住在东马大学生呢?难不成要把这些椅子桌子courier 回去吗?



我上次在PJ租的房间还好,至少有准备椅子和桌子(而且还是破烂的那一种)。
但是我还是留下了很多带不回去的东西,比如说桶啊,小椅子,衣架,还很新的床等等,通通都丢在亲戚家那里。

昨天读了一些Tarc Confession(有些post超好笑的),  读到学生们租屋子遇到的种种问题。
有些屋主跟我在PJ的屋主一样苛刻,家里什么东西坏了要自己付钱维修。
重点是我们搬进去的时候,东西本来就已经坏了,
况且屋子是你的,又不是我的,凭什么要我们帮你缴维修费?

还有,当你要讨回两个月或两个月半的押金时,这些屋主会说一大堆无理的借口,想尽办法从押金中扣钱。

最近,拉曼大学PJ 和 Setapak 的分行都已经搬去 Sg. Long 的新大楼联合为一体。
大批学生搬来 Sg. Long地区租屋子,因为房间供不应求,导致租价快速飚涨!

按以下读关于:
房租每人 RM700的新闻

18学生挤1单位的新闻

总之,拉曼大学和拉曼学院的外地生都很惨,学费虽然比其他私立大学便宜,但得面对住宿的问题。

《妹妹》

刚刚看完了由蓝正龙和安心亚主演的《妹妹》,现在满肚子是火!!!

《妹妹》的编剧是由金钟奖获奖者徐誉庭所写的,得过奖的作品是由林依晨和陈伯霖主演的《我可能不会爱你》。

就是因为上次看了 荣获7个奖项的《我可能不会爱你》,觉得很好看,所以才想看徐誉庭的下一步作品。而且还查了《妹妹》收视率,成绩蛮不错,觉得可以试看看。




这两部戏剧无论是写作手法,角色或故事发展方面都有相似的地方,故事缘由都是在男女主角中学时期的时候发生。唯一不同的是,一个是男主角暗恋女主角,另一个则是相反。

我个人是非常欣赏徐誉庭的文笔,戏剧里每一个情景的描述、角色的思绪和对话都写得很有意思,贴切以及出乎意料。

《妹妹》是讲述一个男孩和他的假妹妹,失散了十年后,难得重逢后一系列的故事。他们后来才发现原来彼此早就已经不再把对方当成是哥哥和妹妹了。

但是我却万万没想到,《妹妹》的结局竟然会是这样!

我会生气是因为前面几集都很好看,所以对结局从满了期待,结果正是结局彻底地毁了整个好故事。

首先,编剧没交代清楚女主角带着的戒指是谁送的,然后也没写男主角到底去了哪里,有没有把债务偿还完,接着最重要的是,编剧连男女主角重逢的镜头都没写进去。女主角苦苦等了十年,结果还是不能与相爱的人在一起。



这个结局实在是烂得不能再烂了,看了这么多偶像剧,从来没有看过这么烂的结局。
徐誉庭我对你实在是太失望了,这么烂的结局亏你还想得出来,干脆就不要写啊!你知不知道这样让很多观众心碎吗?感觉好像浪费了看13集的时间。

我第一次看安心亚的戏,觉得演技还不错,但始终还是比不过演《甄环传》一炮而红的孙俪。她最厉害的地方是掉泪不眨眼睛,泪泉非常旺盛,实在是令人佩服!难怪获这么多奖项,而且还被提名国际艾美奖哦!本人非常推荐看她主演的两部戏剧《甄环传》和《辣妈正传》。


至于已经36岁的蓝正龙,他在这部戏剧的发型实在是太难看了,让他的头看起来好畸形哦!还有,我知道安心亚演的是一个有点笨笨,但又挺可爱的女生,但造型师有必要让她穿那么难看的衣服吗?

好了,现在气总算消了一些。
如果你不想要像我一样,失望,崩溃和生气的话,本人建议还是不要看好了。

The Fast and The Furious

I have been on The Fast and Furious marathon for a few days.

Here are a few words to describe pretty much the whole series. These are the elements that made Fast and Furious one of the all time highest grossing franchise, apart from my favorite Harry Potter series.

1. Car racing (definitely)
2. Hot chics with risque outfits at the scene of racing
3. Hijacking and hacking
4. Drug Lord and loads of cash
5. Minuscule yet important computer Chips
6. Massive destruction
7. CCTV and high tech computer software 
8. Shooting and fighting and other dangerous stunts
9. Roman Pearce as the joker
10. Family theme (intensified in Furious 7) 

I'm not an avid fan of this series, in my memory, I've only watched the 2nd and 3rd movie.
Coz I don't like most of the elements listed above. I'm more of a romcom and fantasy type.
Oh did I mention that how magical and wonderful Cinderella is?

I didn't anticipate or plan to watch the latest installment of the series at first, but everyone kept posting about it in Facebook, describing how touching the ending was, and then one of my acquaintance said that Paul didn't die in the movie. It got me interested, coz I thought it would be otherwise. Hence, here I am writing a review after watching the movie.


Let me tell ya, it was the most sentimental action thriller I've ever seen. You don't usually see sentimental scenes in thriller, plus we all know that Paul had actually left all of us, making the ending seem extra woebegone, I can feel that the whole cinema was filled with sorrow ambience.

The screenwriter did an excellent job for the ending. Instead of letting Brian O' Conner somehow dies in an accident (that's what I thought), he made a perfect farewell for the character and nothing is more beautiful than that. Almost shed a tear when the flashbacks of Brian were shown and the scene where he and Dom depart their own ways at the fork of the road.

As for the perilous stunts, I don't need to mention how nerve-wracking it was to see all those scenes.
And flying cars? Now that's something new, it took the world of racing car into a whole new level, it's like defying gravity. My adrenaline was rushing like hell watching the car flying from building to building in the Dubai scene.

Cars don't fly Dom! - Brian

So when I have watched the previous movies, everything seems a bit bland, coz none of those can beat flying cars. If there is gonna be Furious 8, the screenwriter better come up with something that is more exhilarating than flying cars and how to continue with the family concept without Brian anymore.

Of all these movies, I find that Fast 5 is the most illogical among the series. It has too many loopholes. As for the question of existence of Han, and you are just confused as I am, you can visit this website to understand the chronology of the whole series, because apparently, the movies are not in their sequence, especially Tokyo Drift. 

Oh, one more thing, a huge bravo to the screenwriter for the character of Roman Pearce, his presence just made the whole movie a lot more interesting. 

It's really sad to know and accept the fact that someone had actually left us, He was just 40 when he died in that horrible car crash. How could God took someone so talented, handsome right at his height of his career? Sometimes life isn't fair, but that's how it works, when it's time to go home, you go. Someone wrote this comment as a joke, he said :" How about I give you(God) Justin Bieber, and you(God) give us our Paul back? " Well, if I have the chance to trade, I'll trade Miley Cyrus or just any other criminal. 


Sports car made up Paul's life, but it also took it away. Ironic.


By the way, did you know that Vin Diesel has a twin brother called Paul Vincent?
