Street Kings @ Movie Review

Saturday, January 31, 2009 0

Boy, and I thought only Hong Kong makes the best Police & Triad genre movie!

The story was about the corrupt police force in LAPD. Tom Ludlow (Keanue Reeves),a police office from a unit where they did circumvent the rules - including falsifying evidences - just to make sure that the bad guys had it!

Must say it’s definitely practical, but ethical? I can’t say.

Anyway, the show started well with a great situation in showing how far Tom would go. But of course, that wasn’t the main story. The main story however was when Tom’s ex-partner, Terrence Washington (Terry Crews) was brutally murdered with him on the scene.

Feeling guilty, depressed and desperate, Tom began his investigation with the help from Paul “Disco” Diskant (Chris Evans). Down the rabbit hole, and the twist became more bewildering and I must say almost too brutal. Ending was great as well - “What happened to just fucking the bad people?”.

Must say I was impressed by this show. I did not expect it to be so reflective and engaging; albeit confusing at time. The fact that I did only manage to watch it recently, and not on the big screen, made me a little bit regretful.

Cape no.7 @ Movie Review

Friday, January 23, 2009 0

There were quite a hype regarding this show, including the best Taiwanese movie since. I, however, kept an open mind before letting it starts. In fact, I was prepared for a hard crash. Further, a colleague of mine who had watch it, told me that it’s very heavy on Hokkien - one of the dialect which I am not affluent with. To my surprise, I thoroughly enjoyed it!

First, it didn’t really felt like a Taiwanese production. Pacing, framing, and even the dialog were really class of its own. In fact, I dreaded the whole show to slog on like all the Taiwanese soap-operas do. In fact, it has a story to tell. Maybe trying a wee bit too hard to link the 7 undelivered letters to that of Aga’s and Tomoko’s unlikely romance. It’s a really hard parallelism to draw except for the characters’ nationalities.

The numerous characters in the show fit nicely to represent many values that we should all come to appreciate. Family, love, neighbourly spirit, team work and dream all played out nicely them. Heck, to see the head-strong Uncle Mao (Johnny C.J. Lin) on stage playing his yukin, I couldn’t help but draw parallelism to the many not achieved aspirations in life. Perhaps, one day, everyone will end up that way.

The musics are all very nice. I didn’t expect such a strong delivery from beginning to end. The opening song itself brought up a good rock rhytm to the rest of the show. In fact, I am looking forward to grab a copy of the OST.

A man is in a bar having a drink. The guy next to him falls off of his barstool. The man picks up the guy and sits him back on the barstool, and he falls off again.

This time he picks the guy up and asks, "Where do you live?".

Being a kind soul, the man takes the guy to his car, puts him in the back seat, and drives him home. When they get to the guy's house, the man helps the guy out of the car, but he falls down 3 times before getting to the front door.

The man rings the doorbell and the guy's wife comes to the door.

The man says, "Hello, I've brought your husband home."

The wife looks at the man and asks, "Where's his wheel chair?"

A father and his three beautiful, yet blonde, daughters went into a hotel to stay for the night. When the daughters went to check in, they saw a really good looking bell boy. The father caught the three girls looking at him and he threatened to kill the bellboy if he did anything at all with them. So the bell boy minded his own business and ignored the girls.

While he was working ever so diligently,the eldest daughter goes up to him and says "If you don't do it with me in bed,I will pour red juice on the sheets of my bed and tell my father that you popped my cherry." Fearing for his life, he did it with her.

Then he saw the beautiful middle daughter in the hallway and she too walked over to him and said "If you don't do it with me, I'll pour red juice on my bed and tell my father that you popped my cherry." Again fearing for his life, he agreed.

Later that evening the youngest blonde daughter saw him. She walked up to him and said "If you don't have sex with me,I'll pour green juice all over the bed and tell my father that you popped my cherry."

"Green juice?"
He asked, "Why Green?"
She replied, "Because my cherry is not ripe yet, duh."

A priest, a nun, Little Johnny, and a lawyer are out fishing in the Gulf of Mexico.
They fail to notice that they have drifted out of sight of land, until the small boat they are in begins to take on water and begin to sink.

Looking frantically for life preservers, they discover, to their horror,that they have only one.

"Gentlemen, we adults have already lived good lives," said the Nun, "we should give Little Johnny a chance also, give him the life preserver, he has his whole life ahead of him."

"Fuck the kid," said the lawyer.

Glancing quickly at his watch, the priest replied,
"Gee, do you reallythink we have enough time...?"
