Year of Remakes February 7, 2010

Filed under: movie — eujzin @ 11:56 pm

Woohoo!Cult films from my era are back! BIGGER and BETTER than before! I’m tokking abt remakes of old movies that used to be cool back in the days where I still wear shorts to school.

These films may not be huge names like Star Wars or Superman but they are cool then. Maybe some of you recognise these names…Tron, and Clash of the Titans.

Tron – The movie with special effects that feature super cool computer generated images in 1980s. That famous bike scene.

The old

And the 2010 update…

Clash of the Titans – a 1981 fantasy adventure film based on the myth of Perseus. It was released on June 12, 1981 and was a box office hit. (source: wikipedia)

The old

And the new…

Can’t wait!

 

Quotes and Lessons from “The International” May 2, 2009

“The IBBC is a bank. Their objective is not to control a conflict but the debt it produces. The real value of a conflict is, the true value, is in the debt that it creates. You control the debt, you control everything”

I DISLIKE banks and corporations…they are after all, a for-profit organisation. What they want is…our money…they are not there to look after OUR interests…they are there to create a ‘debt’, to control us…

Sometimes a man can meet his destiny on the road he took to avoid it.Louis Salinger

(to Eleanor Whitman)
Sometimes one of the hardest things in life is to know which bridge to cross and which to burn. I’m the one you burn.Louis Salinger

Wish I have that kinda wisdom…to know which bridges to burn takes a lot of smarts…AND a lot of guts…

Yayyy – Two good weekends in a row August 11, 2008

Filed under: life,movie,Personal,photos,pictures,review,shopping — eujzin @ 11:51 am

It’s sooooo nice to have weekends to rest and relax. My past two weekends before were spent at two different medical hospitals. Sigh…Working on two weekends in a row is very exhausting.

Hmmm…what happened this week? I caught two movies in a week so me very happy.

Caught ‘Journey to the Center of the Earth’, it was ok overall but the visuals were breathtaking, i’ll give it a 3 out of 5 stars.

National day: Swam and got a tan (yippee!) in the morn. Went to the new Astons branch @The Cathay for lunch and caught ‘Bad habits’ (@Picturehouse) is a very interesting (and yet gross…watch it and u will see why…). The movie tells of a few characters with one thing in common…EATING DISORDERS . It is said to be a thinking man’s horror, and i agree.

It’s sickening to see people eat (or not eat) like they did in the movie. haha, dietitians should watch this film!

Sunday! SHOPPING! Went Mustafa and Vivo…bought a few things, went to my uncle’s place for a nice jap dinner…(my aunty’s a jap) Their place was the nicest jap home I’ve been to. So simple and nice. And aunty was so cute with my uncle (it’s funny when he speaks jap and she replies in simple english)

Here’s some of the things she prepared (unfortunately, we ate before i remembered to take pics)

Rice Dish

Red bean cake with sweets

Over the weekend, also finished ‘beach.ball.babes’ on MobTV finally (silly ending!). I’ll give the series 2.5 out of 5 stars.

Strange Bedfellows? NOOO…It’s ‘I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry’ August 16, 2007

Filed under: movie — eujzin @ 6:00 pm
CRIKEY!

I Now Pronounce You Chuck and LarryAs much as I like Adam Sandler, I have to say this…his new comedy ‘I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry‘ (opening soon) abt a pair of frenz declaring themselves gay to save on tax is not original!

When I first saw the trailer, I thought “Wow, looks farnee, sounds original, yayy, another movie to watch!”
Then I had this feeling like “eh? no leh…this plot sounds somewhat familiar…”
It dawned upon me that Hollywood has ‘stolen’ another story from pple more creative than themselves! tsk tsk

I watched a similar movie before (when I was studying in Australia) abt a pair of firemen in a small Aussie town who could save on tax by declaring themselves gay.

Strange Bedfellows

At least the makers of the film could at least say that this is a remake, or based on…at least da U.S ‘Taxi’ din claim they were original, neither did ‘The Departed’ despite not adopting the ‘Infernal Affairs’ moniker.

Haiz…well peeps, judge fer yourself and tell me if these two movies are not overly similar!
