I won a couple of tickets to watch “The Woman In Black” so Mel Li and I headed off to watch it together.  No way was I going to watch a horror flick all by myself.  Based on the book by Susan Hill, “The Woman In Black” is a supernatural horror-thriller film starring Daniel Radcliffe.  Radcliffe stars as a young…

Ruroni Kenshin – The Movie


Wahh…these people are so cruel! The movie is only premiering on 25 Aug and the trailer is already out! Enjoy the trailer!  I can’t wait to watch it 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 The movie stars Sato Takeru as Himura Kenshin and I think he’s well cast as he does resemble the short but feminine looking Kenshin.  Agree?

Movie Review – The Sorcerer and the White Snake


I went to watch “The Sorcerer and The White Snake” (trailer above) with the parents last Sunday evening and thank goodness I didn’t pay for the tickets.  The newspaper reviews were whinging about the over-usage of CGI but I don’t think that’s the real issue.  The real issues are: Lousy plot Lousy script Many cheesy scenes The movie’s saving graces…

Movie Review – Due Date


I went to watch “Due Date” with Let-chan last night and the main reason I went to watch it was for Robert Downey Jr.  Gosh…he’s such an amazing actor and his acting chops didn’t fail in this comedy! The chemistry between him and Zach Galifianakis is great and you can feel the tension.  It’s such a funny film and there…

Movie Review – The Shock Labyrinth 3D


I expected myself to be shocked, horrified and be in that nail-biting-wanna-pee-in-my-pants moment. Alas, it was not to be. There were tons of creepy moments but that was just about it. Creepy. Nothing else. I won’t be having nightmares/ dreams tonight. How disappointing. They had it all in there…the recipe for pure horror was all there! The fact that it’s…
