Indiana Jones : A Preview

stanleyenge (movies profile) has these to say :

6 Reasons not to watch Indiana Jones

1. Spielberg is a genius, but his effort in this film was weak, rushed, and uninspired. Anyone who has studied filmmaking knows what I'm talking about.

2. The editing of the movie was not done with any true effort, passion, or creativity

3. The writing was subpar and the plot was confusing and ridiculous. I heard sarcastic yawns from the audience many times during the movie.

4. The special effects, by today's standards and Spielberg's standards, were cut-rate and boring.

5. The cast had no chemistry whatsoever. The characters were not developed, and thus I could not connect to them. The female antagonist failed to inspire any fear or loathing. The Karen Allen character was wasted and misused. Indy and his son had zero bonding chemistry.

6. The violence was too tame. "Raiders" had gritting visuals that send chills down your spine. This latest Indy film was very tame and had to work hard for the PG rating.

I will have to rent Raiders and get the bad taste out of my mouth.

Now lets see what the expert critics are saying:
Brief Review

Boston GlobeTy Burr
"...grand old-school fun..." more...

Chicago Sun-TimesRoger Ebert
"I can say that if you liked the other Indiana Jones movies, you will like this one, and that if you did not, there is no talking to you." more...

Chicago TribuneMatt Pais
"...highly enjoyable if somewhat unsurprising..." more...

E! OnlineChris Farnsworth
"...Indy proves he's still the best there is at dodging bullets, death traps and flesh-devouring ants." more...

Entertainment WeeklyLisa Schwarzbaum
"The movie's legacy may simply be the melee that ensues when Spielberg cracks the whip and moviegoers scurry for tickets." more...

filmcritic.comChristopher Null
"I guess the best recommendation I can ultimately offer is this: As I write this review two days after the screening, I'm still humming the theme song." more...

Now, do I have to say more. Enjoy the movie mates.

Manchester United : The Champ

What would make 200 hundred man and women to stay up untill 2.30am and besiege a mamak outlet that is already packed to the brim? Football. Yesss!!!! and that comes no bigger than the European Club Championship final.Manchester United: Champions of Europe Again.

So what can one say now. To all the Chelsea screamers who went back with their head (which head is this) between their legs.. sorry buddies... For Arsenal fans who wanted Chelsea to win so badly, and then went home with piss in their arse(nal); next time mates and for the Liverpool fans who wanted to see Man U crawl, keep looking guys.. for you may see your own team crawling all over.

We, The MU fan are going treat ourselves to Indiana Jones today.. and guess what..the Chelsea gang is buying the tickets. Thats the bet. Yeeehaaa. Heeeii..who's gonna pay for my pop corn?

Dr. M main sorok sorok

Waahhh..what exciting time this is? Even the highest paid hollywood script writers cant churn out something this silly.. Did I say silly.. Well how you will call that. "I am leaving the house because he is in. Chase him out than I will come back". Hello smart ass.. its you who put him there and thats make you the biggest culprit.

Tun.. its true what they say.." when one gets very old (as old as Tun I guess) they become childish." True or not. One blogger wrote " It’s All Unfolding... Right In Front Of Our Eyes! " and he was definitely right as Tun never had any patriotic reason behind his decision. Just personal. If you want this country to be run in the way you wish then why you resigned.

You are oledi lah old maaa.. Even your own son is not listenening . Today he said want time to think.. Najib practically will leave his decision to his secondhand wife, Rosmah. Syaed Hamid is already sweating on his slippery head. Muhyiddin is already reading yasin. Aaahh. so umnoiiissh.
Lots of hidden agenda and personal vendetta. There is nothing for the country.

Tun its better for you to leave and never come back. Adios amigo.

The Soccer Players

I was watching preschool kids playing soccer at their school ground this morning. It went like this : The cute (all of them are, for that matter) keeper of "Team A" kicked the ball directly to the nearest player who is the striker of "Team B". Instead of kicking the ball into "Goal A" he turned around and went towards his own goal (rasa terhutang budi kot kerana dapat bola).

Just few steps forwards, a "Team A" player ( his teamate) intercepted.. (or pushed, more like it) and took possession of the ball. And all ten players tirelessly ran all over the places... their aim : to kick the ball once; tak kisah lah arah mana, janji tendang.

Since they were going around and around for almost ten minutes, the keeper of "Team B" left his goal post and went off to the toilet. "When you goota go, you gotta go."right? The teacher frantically ran after the tiny goal keeper, calling his name. All present were in stiches, holding their stomach with tears in their eyes. I almost rolled on the grass with hysterical laughter. And the best part, "Team A" failed to score at the vacant "Team B "goal post. In fact they were too busy chasing the ball and never came near the goal post.

It was first class entertainment and wish our national team could be this entertaining. By the way, "Team B" won 2 - 0. (Both own goals) and I have to buy my nephew (the keeper who went to kencing, well thats my kerabat) a new watch. Kids these days.. :)

Iron Man a..preview

Aii...ya... When this old man was taken to the movie Ironman by my much much younger (girl) friends ( don't get jealous meiii) I was over joyed. Imaaagine being flanked and escorted by young sweet sweet things.. he..he.. All eyes on me maa.. Bahagia sekejap.

That is where the problem starts.. You begin to wish you have that suit ... hmm..hmm.. My naughty mind constantly strayed from the movie.. to think ; how if our beloved Pak Lah gets his hands on one of these suit. ( well Jean will be happy for sure he..he..)

Imagine, Pak Lah walking around with sleek futuristic suit that can blast (not c4 blast) any mortal enemy away. (I can see Najib scrambling for the Obadieh's prototype suit. it matches well as Obadieh and Najib sama botak.he..he..) Its also a good idea as no one can catch this "sleeping Beauty' (Pak Lah le) in action (tidurlah tu) or nobody can blame him for not listening as the suit almost has no ears (aaaiya it is also got no #$@# but thats no problem..Jean will tell you "why carry things that you dont intend to use???")

Seriously, they ought to come out with "Iron woman". But they don't have to go far looking for the prototype as our very own Iron lady (Nenek Rafidah lah) can play the part effortlessly. But what about the massive frontal "bump" and lavish hind "hump". Well I guess they have to come up with a design so that the bump can house rocket launcers and the" hump" is where the supersonic engine located.. What a roar will come out from rafidah's...$%#@. hah..never mind.She probably fart louder than that. (Sorry nenek.. old age like that maa).

Hey..I was suppose to review right. As they say good things doesnt need advertisement.. just watch the movie.. You will know for yourself.. If you insist you click hereCritics Reviews to learn more. Alternately can click here 'Just the Facts' on IRON MAN to get more interesting infos.

Have a great time watching this marvellous movie.

Ayo..yo... Apa Sudah Jadi....

It was interestingly frightening when the headline flashes " What have they done to RPK? ". Whats going in there is anybody's guess. We will have to wait for the whole story to unfold.

With our PDRM anything is possible. People can go to pieces, detainees sleep in "eternal peace" and even a DPM can get "black eye". So everybody worried when the PDRM officers told Mrs Raja Petra Kamarudin that RPK wishes not to meet anyone including his own wife. Really really fishy. But in a day or two truth will prevail.

Raja Petra Becomes Maha Atma..

Whattaa lubang keldai these Police force and Malaysian Government are made of. There are hundreds of important cases still collecting dust... missing children are still missing, crime is soaring like Pak Lah's Jet, price is gate crushing like nobody's business but they are more concerned about what a blogger has to say.

Raja Petra charged, chooses jail over bail screams a headline. And immediately the bloggerspere was alive with stories... Raja Petra charged with sedition over 9 paragraphs reads one.. followed by Save Raja Petra Campaign . Almost all major websites has stories such as this: Raja Petra Kamaruddin - the People's Hero . But above all this one is eye cathching.. Rakyat hairan, bagaimana begitu cepat Raja Petra didakwa .

Now we all know that Raja Petra is of royal family but he is down to earth and willing to go to jail for fighting to upkeep justice in this beloved country. Raja Petra is truly towering and true Putra of this soil. Long live Raja Petra

What was Razak’s outburst all about?

This is excerp from Malaysia Today and a comment published in it. Just for general information and to let you all know what the government media tried hard to hide..

What was Razak’s outburst all about?New Straits Times, 21 February 2008Just what triggered an outburst from political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda in court yesterday?This was the question on the minds of those present at the High Court for the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder trial.

The drama started before proceedings began in the morning when Razak’s father, Datuk Abdullah Malim Baginda, whispered something to his son who was in the dock.Razak’s demeanour changed and he stood up and walked back to the holding cell as proceedings had not yet begun.He turned, faced his father angrily and shouted: “Shall I shout it out?”

His father pointed his finger at him and indicated no.Razak did not let up: “I’m innocent! I’m innocent,” he said loudly before going into the cell.He did not look his normal, self-assured and smiling self when he returned to the dock minutes later for the start of yesterday’s proceedings.

But just as those present in court thought that the side-show was over, Razak started again after trial judge Datuk Mohd Zaki Md Yasin adjourned proceedings for lunch.His father went up to him and again whispered something into his ears. Razak jumped up from his seat and in an animated way shouted: “Oh no, oh no.”He then kicked the dock gate angrily as he walked out, stunning the court room into silence. It did not end there.He then banged on the lock-up door and looked terribly upset. He was also in tears.

Those present, including family members and reporters, were taken aback to see Razak’s unprecedented behaviour in court since the trial began in June.Abdullah also appeared stunned but stood silently.A family member of co-accused, Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri, then approached Razak’s mother, Datin Rohana Abdullah, urging her to pacify her son.Rohana, who was seated in the public gallery, quickly walked to the lock-up to calm Razak.

By then Razak’s counsel Wong Kian Kheong, who had left the court room earlier, returned upon been informed of his client’s outburst, and went straight into the lock-up.Wong refused to say what Razak’s outburst was about.Proceedings, meanwhile, were not disrupted.

And this is the comment :

Just what triggered an outburst from political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda in court yesterday? Just retrieved this intriguing report by "Little Bird" from

Before the hearing began at 9:30 am, Razak Baginda's father had whispered something to him. This made Razak angry the whole day. Finally, about three hours later, Razak Baginda could not stand it any longer and exploded. What did he say? Reporter friends who were there said that Razak shouted again and again, "Matilah kau Pak Lah! Matilah Pak Lah! I am innocent! I am innocent!" Then he went into a mad rampage and kicked the chairs and doors in the courtroom.

Even the Judge was shocked and did not know what to do. Both the defense lawyers and the prosecution team were also all shocked. The story goes that Razak Baginda's father whispered instructions to his son to incriminate his former boss Najib Tun Razak. The instruction came from the Pak Lah camp. This was yet another deal they were trying to make - Razak Baginda's life for Najib's head. The story is that Najib is outshining Badawi in this coming general election. Najib may win big in Pahang but Pak Lah may win small or even lose his seat in Kepala Batas.

The Pak Lah camp may also suspect that Najib's people are working in the background to embarass Pak Lah in Kepala Batas. Hence the 'whisperings' through Razak Baginda's father. TheSun newspaper carried the story, complete with Razak Baginda's outburst. However, the Home Ministry asked The Sun to withdraw their first run which carried the 'Matilah Kau Pak Lah!' outburst by Razak Baginda. TheSun had to withdraw thousands of copies of their print run early this morning. Strange things are happening in the country, folks. No angels are involved. Only devils.

Police pulleeezlah...

The most celebrated blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin being investigated under the Sedition Act . This comes hot in the heels of his posting of Let’s send the Altantuya murderers to hell . Read this and form your own opinion..

As for this old man, tak da api tak de asap. Just wondering... all this while when certain people accused Najib directly(aiiya.. no need to hide hide lah..its Anwar Ibrahim) the police was so quiet. But when Rosmah is implicated.. there were immidiate reactions and and Raja Petra was hauled up. Wonder if PDRM stands for Police Di Rosmah Mansor.

This lady must be truly amazing otherwise can't see any reason for Najib "buying"(tebus talak) her. But this lady seems to have a knack to get things done her way. If sebelum jadi "first lady of Malaysia"(although second hand for Najib) dia dah tunjuk belang macam ni..apa nak jadi ngan Malaysia selepas dia naik. hmmmm... "GOD" save our beloved country.
