Movie Review: Jack Reacher

Another premiere Screening. This time thanks to both Nuffnang and ChurpChurp. I won 2 contest. So end up winning 4 free tickets
to watch #NNPremiereScreening and #Churpremiere of Jack Reacher. hehehehe. Watch it last night dgn Fareed, Hanif and Hilmi at Tropicana City Mall. So here is my movie review of Jack Reacher yaa..

In case you didnt know, this movie is based from a novel by Lee Child, One Shot. I never read the novels, but watching this movie make me want to buy 1! An ex-army investigator trying to solve a case involving a trained military sniper who shot five random victims. 

As a mystery thriller novel lover, I enjoyed the 1st half of the movie. I felt like reading a book coz the dialogue is playing with words. You need to catch up, need to understand the mystery quickly. I'm happy to catch up with Jack Reacher's thoughts and his wise jokes.

Having said so, if your English is not that good, or you hate books, you will find the 1st half hour such a bore. Like Mr. Fareed who slept "occasionally". haha. He found it a bit berbelit-belit and talk too much.

Then when the investigation getting deeper,with more action,then only the beat picked up. Lots of shooting, action. Best!

My verdict: 4 star. This is the kind of movie yang I hope for James Patterson's novels. Sadly, all his novel adaptation failed. Sebab tu I refuse to watch Alex Cross latest movie  =(

Fareed's verdict: kepala berbintang2. haha.
And Tom Cruise still ensem.

Movie Review: Here Comes the Boom

As usual, i won another #NNPremiereScreening.
mode: berlagak tak hengat! haha. This time its for Here Comes the Boom.

Prior to watching it, I googled about it-as usual. Rotten Tomatoes rated it around 34%. Based from the review, I thought this was just another stupid funny movie. But what the heck, this is a free movie. So, why not?

Turns out, this is a really FEEL GOOD MOVIE! We enjoyed it from the very 1st minute off it! This was not just an OK movie, okeh?! hehe.

Here Comes the Boom is about a lazy biology teacher who was willing to enter Mixed-Martial Art (MMA) competition to raise fund to prevent a music teacher from being laid off.In doing so, he was beaten up pretty much in this movie.

For more Here Comes the Boom review-you can just google it. But what I can tell you, Salma Hayek and Charice are in this movie. The movie is funny. We were really laughing, clapping at some part. There was also "oohh" and "aaah" moment. Penonton hari ini sporting!

After the movie, I feel good. Puas! Which I dont feel too often after watching a movie. The verdict: YOU SHOULD WATCH IT. Highly recommended. Unless you are way too geli to watch fat guy in action. haha.

4 star. Better than Wreck It Ralph.

Movie Review: Soar into the Sun

For 1st time ever, I win ChurpPremiere Screening for Soar into the Sun. All because I didnt win the Nuffnang Premiere Screening contest. hehe.

Anuar sound bila mula2 kami amek gambar skema. so inilah hasilnya..
I met Anuar and Daniel there too. My team mate during with Nuffnang Genting Evangelist: Tribal Halloween event last weekend. Juga nampak Mira and Jeff.

Ok. bout the movie. I already read from online review and Rotten Tomatoes beforehand. So already expecting a so-so movie. I mainly watch this coz of Rain.hehehe..

The movie was actually better than my expectation, I a expecting lot worst. But still this movie is not great. The plot is jumpy. Here and there.

So my verdict? if you want to watch it at the cinema, go on Wednesday.

Nuffnang Genting Evangelist:Tribal Halloween. The Arrival

Few years with Nuffnang, and I didnt even know there is Genting Evangelist. *sigh*

Thanks to a new blogger-friend: Khai Art Far, I knew about this event which was held on 3-4 Nov 2012 at Awana Long House Genting. Fully sponsored by Resort World Genting, Tribal Halloween is by far the biggest event I attended as a blogger.

We gathered at Wisma Genting around 9.30-10am. I kinda felt left out coz I didnt know any bloggers, all of them seem younger than me. Finally, I just approach some1 near, Nisa. Friendly, i like ~

I think we started to move at around 10.30 am kot. 
<== This is our ride. Really comfy!

We reached Awana Genting at around 11am. After putting away our bags, we straight away go to Rajawali for lunch.

But lunch will only start at 12pm. Alamak.. So what should we do? Mingle around, take a short tour and cam-whoring of course! Here are some pictures taken while waiting for lunch.

The Location: Awana Genting

Left: Warning yaa.. No Durian nor Cempedak here!
Right: Me with Dato’ Ruddin Salim – Vice President of Awana Genting

Me with the new-found-blogger friends. Khai, Hibri, Eazy, Nasim, Syafiq, Fifa, Aina, Atirah. I feel and look younger with them.. haha. All of them are 10 years younger than me sehhh..

p/s: kejap lagi I tagged all of your blog eh?

Will continue more in next post.
