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.
