(500) Days of Summer: Review


In contrast to the last review, I. Love. This. Movie. 500 Days is my current favorite of 2009, that is until Avatar comes out of course. This film is just another reason why I love indie films so much. It hits everything with perfect charm and wit and they do it all with little to no budgets.

The film is a story about an offbeat romance of boy meets girl. Boy falls in love with girl. But girl doesn't.They spend 500 days together and girl leaves boy heartbroken after that. He begins to tell the story of their 500 days in non-linear order to find out what went wrong.

Okay so first I gotta talk about the two leads of the movie. Zooey Deschanel really surprised me with her acting. Summer kinds reminds me of Annie Hall for some reason, not to mention she is mad beautiful. Though some parts through the movie I just wanted to hate her, I couldn't. Shes that girl that we guys just can't hate no matter what.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a character every guy can relate to. A nice boy just trying his best to impress the girl way out of his league and the frustration he feels when the feelings aren't mutual. I like Joseph Gordon-Levitt man. I root for this guy. You want him to get the girl. There was a scene where his character finally got Summer and he breaks into a fantasy dance sequence (which I bet all us guys feel like doing when they get the girl of their dreams) BTW, don't ya'll think he's the spitting image of Heath Ledger?!



If you liked the humour from indie gems like Little Miss Sunshine and Juno, 500 is perfect for you. It a sweet mix for warm comedy and drama. Prepare for lots of clever, witty one-liners and retorts. And wow, the supporting cast was phenomenal.

The method the story is told is incredibly genius to. The editing is incredibly innovative. There is one amazing scene where Gordon-Levitts character is going to a party in Summers place and the screen gets split in two. On the left side it shows how his character hopes thier date would turn out and the right side shows his cold brutal reality. Flawlessly beautiful. Something I bet we can all relate to.



Best damn show I've seen this year. I will announce that once more. You guys have got to check this out. It just leaves you with a big grin on your face and that fuzziness inside without compromising with it's serious message of heartbreak and commitment.

RATING: 9/10 (Someone please beg me for the DVD. This movie must be seen!)

The Twilight Saga- New Moon: Review

Sigh.........

And come to think I was looking forward to this after seeing the trailer. Sigh..... Why? Why would they do this? They had everything. An Oscar nominated director, a 50 million dollar budget, the greatness of Michael Sheen and a sex goddess named Taylor Lautner and they still managed to fuck it up.
No seriously girls.. you'd rather have the one on the left??

New Moon is kinda like Twilight only with werewolves this time. Edward (AHHHHHHHHHHH) decides he wants to leave Bella and Bella gets depressed. Bella hooks up with her bestfriend Jacob (AHHHHHHHHH) and then leaves him cause Edward wants to kill himself. End of movie.
Let me just start by saying that I officially hate Bella Swan. She is one of the most self centered, cock tease of a bitch I have ever had the misfortune to witness on a cinema screen. How is it that so many girls love her? In the real world, we call her type the psycho clingy girlfriend type. I mean she screams and cries, moaps and whines for a quarter of a year just cause she can't get what she wants. And just when there is someone who is stupid enough to like her, she goes and toy with his abs, rubs him, kisses him, tells him she loves him then leaves him for a 109 year old shiny vampire. God! Jesus Christ! And I love Kristen Stewart, she did some pretty nice movies pre-Twilight, but man she is really one note playing Bella.
One a more positive side.... er.. the production aspect of New Moon was nice. The effects and overall technical side of the movie were a huge improvement from the first movie. I loved the werewolves and the chase sequences in the film and the Vultori scene, but they were kinda brief. Chris Weitz did a nice job with the directing. But all that couldn't save this film.
I still can't see how Bella and Edward (AHHHH) like each other. Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson have absolutely no chemistry together.
Now Taylor Lautner on the other hand.. Hello, hunny you are one fine piece of wolf. The Bella/Jacob relationship is so much more believeable than with Cullen and it's safe for me to say that Lautner was the best performance in the movie aside from Billy Burke, Michael Sheen and Peter Facinelli. (That was not a complement okay, Taylor Lautner being the best actor in your movie is just saaad)
Melissa Rosenberg, she's the writer of both Twilight films and she was the writer of the last season of The O.C. God, she is one of the worst screen writers ever. New Moon had zero story, zero plot development and horrible horrible dialogue. Like:

Edward: "Bella, you breathing is my gift." (WTF)

I laughed so hard watching this movie. Even the fans were laughing at the embarrassing dialogue. The best was the final punchline of New Moon, the entire cinema just started laughing their asses of.
So to sum up New Moon.
  1. To protect your bleeding girlfriend from your blood hungry vampire brother, knock her clean across the room and make her bleed more.
  2. What happens when Bella haves her period?
  3. Want your ex to come back to you? Jump off a cliff!
  4. Native American kids are so poor they can't afford shirts.
  5. Girls want pasty white boys who look like they are gonna cry or puke at any moment and have an aura of depression surrounding them over solid muscular tan dudes.

RATING: 2/10

First Photos From Shrek 4!


ComingSoon has published the first images of the 4th and final Shrek movie, Shrek Forever After! Director Mike Mitchell told the newspaper that Shrek is feeling over-domesticated in the fourth installment. "He has lost his roar. It used to send villagers running away in terror. Now they run to him and ask him to sign their pitchforks and torches."

To regain his ogre mojo, he strikes a deal with Rumpelstiltskin, who is voiced by Walt Dohrn, the film's head of story. The pact goes awry and Shrek must confront what life would be like in Far Far Away if he had never existed. That translates into Donkey being forced into cart-pulling duty, fat and lazy Puss in Boots trading his sword for a pink bow and the underhanded Rumpelstiltskin ruling the kingdom.

Comedians Kathy Griffin and Kristin Schaal ("Flight of the Conchords") are joining the voice cast as witches who hunt ogres. On the side of good is an underground resistance group led by Jon Hamm of "Mad Men," who plays "the best-looking ogre you've ever seen," Mitchell says.

The first trailer for the film will be shown during the premiere of James Cameron's Avatar in December

The Boat That Rocked: Review

This film makes me wish I was born in the 1960's even more. Innit be cool? Being born during the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Hendrix, Beach Boys, The Who, Kinks time. It be even better if there was Internet then to.
The story of the film is that in the 1960's, when rock music was in it's renaissance, mainstream British radio refused to play any rock or pop songs. But there was this pirate radio station, broadcasting from a ship in the middle of the ocean (so that they weren't bound to any laws) played rock music 24/7. So just like our Malaysian govt, the British didn't like it and tries to shut them down.
It's nice to finally see Philip Seymour Hoffman play a happy character for once. All he ever plays are depressed, angry or crazy characters.
  • Doubt- Angry pedophile
  • Synecdoche, New York- Crazy
  • Before The Devil Knows You're Dead- Angry
  • The Savages- Depressed
  • Copote- Depressed and crazy
He plays The Count and OMG this guy has gotta be the greatest man to ever walk this earth. I don't know why. I just ate up every single thing he said and loved it.
One of my biggest complaints is that besides Philip Seymour Hoffman, the other characters were really one note. They have one thing that they do and that's what they stick to through the whole movie. It'd be nice to get the back stories to the other characters besides Philip Seymour Hoffman's. And I didn't like the progress the film made cause it developed really slow, it developed with lots of comedy and great music but it was still slow.
That being said, the characters are cliche'd but I just can't help but love them. There are films that have really complex characters but after the show ends, I can't even remember their names. The characters in The Boat That Rocked were hilarious and memorable.
There is no plot or character development for the film, sure. The film drags on too long, sure. But that's not what The Boat That Rocked is suppose to be. It's about rock n roll. It's about youth. It's about rebellion. It's about fun. It's all about capturing the spirit of the 1960's and The Boat That Rocked delivers that perfectly with awesome comedy, lovable characters and FRUCKIN AWESOME SOUNDTRACK! I had tonnes of fun watching this.

"To all our listeners, this is what I have to say - God bless you all. And as for you bastards in charge, don't dream it's over. Years will come, years will go, and politicians will do fuck all to make the world a better place. But all over the world, young men and young women will always dream dreams and put those dreams into song. Nothing important dies tonight, just a few ugly guys on a crappy ship. The only sadness tonight is that, in future years, there'll be so many fantastic songs that it will not be our privilege to play. But, believe you me, they will still be written, they will still be sung and they will be the wonder of the world."

Top Ten Greatest End Credits of All Time


So the top ten thing seems to be getting good response.. So now that I've gotten opening scenes out, here's my top ten favorite movie end credits of all time!

10. Armageddon

Beautiful end to the only good movie Michael Bay will ever make
Why the hell did Steve Tyler leave Aerosmith??!!

9. The Blues Brothers

If you said you didn't tap your toes... you're lying. Greatest musical ensemble ever gathered on screen!

8. Tropic Thunder

Who doesn't like Tom Cruise dancing in a fat suit? The freeze frames of the actors are uber cool to

7. The Lord Of the Rings: Return of the King

Can't find the real credits online.
LOTR ends with sketches of all the characters and landscapes of Middle Earth while Into the West (the most beautiful movie soundtrack ever) plays in the background

6. The Spiderwick Chronicles

Awesome cool visual effects and score!

5. Toy Story 2, Monsters Inc., A Bugs Life & Cars







I always loved the blooper scenes at the end of Pixar movies! It's so cool that Pixar ends their movies by poking fun at their old films and stuff. Particularly the Cars one. So damn freakin cute!

4. Silent Hill

Wow. Credits that are actually scarier than the actual movie. Does anyone know what's the song?

3. WALL·E

The credits kinda gave a continuing story of WALL-E after they land on Earth and the process of rebuilding the world told through beautiful art pieces ranging from caveman drawings to Victorian paintings. The Down To Earth still gives me chills

2. Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events

I saw Lemony Snicket's in the cinema and I remembered most of the audience were still sitting in their seats admiring the gorgeous graphics in the end credits. The credits alone was worth the admission price!

1. Slumdog Millionaire

The only thing better than having a happy ending to an amazing movie is to have a really cool dance and song sequence as the end credits. Jai Ho literally sums up everything beautiful about life and love. The dancing's kinda cliche'd but it's a nice homage to Bollywood!
