Essay #19

Set in the mythical world of burly Vikings and wild dragons, and based on the book by Cressida Cowell, the action comedy tells the story of Hiccup, a Viking teenager who doesn’t exactly fit in with his tribe’s longstanding tradition of heroic dragon slayers. Hiccup’s world is turned upside down when he encounters a dragon that challenges he and his fellow Vikings to see the world from an entirely different point of view.

OFFICIALLY MY ALL-TIME FAVOURITE DISNEY MOVIE! or favourite animation movie of the year! GREAT SHOW! I really enojyed it, a common plot BUT the director or writer twist and turned it. has a lot of exciting elements in it, the animation was good! love the characters! especially Astrid! and the dragons, their art in this movie was very creative especially with the dragon and environment. but i regret watching it without 3-D. it's a MUST WATCH in 3D and for 6 years old and above. great movie! but i wish the movie were a bit longer. it was less than 1 and a half hour.

and apparently there's a trilogy! YAY! :D 9/10!

Essay #18

Sandy, upon discovering her husband's infidelity while watching her son's birthday video, leaves the suburbs and moves into the city. She gets an apartment that's above a coffee house where she befriends one of the workers, Aram, a guy whose wife only married him so she could get a green card. Aram's family thinks he's wasting his life and education by working in the coffee house. Soon after moving into the apartment, Sandy hires Aram to be her nanny while she takes on work for the first time since her children where born. It isn't long when Aram and Sandy find they get along wonderfully and start to date. But the question is: is their relationship real or is it, in fact, just a rebound for both of them?

Pretty cool plot eh? Cool plot and a good movie. Catherine Zeta Jones and an-upcoming actor Justin Bartha (from the Hangover) So catherine seperates with her husband and moves to new york. Made friends with Aram ( justin bartha) and slowly falls in love. and they both JUST ended their Failed-marriages. but not sure whether this love is real or not. Hmm..not your typical Love-storyline eh? Well, this is a good movie, interesting plot. and surprisingly, i haven't seen Catherine acting in any movies lately...and guess what? She's still got it! she was very intense in some scenes and very expressive AND she's still as hot as the days of her Zoro role! Justin bartha did pretty good too, a shy soft-spoken guy who is easily bullied by woman, especially his mum! haha, overall this movie is pretty good for to chill on a friday night or a lazy sunday afternoon. 7/10

Essay #17

My 17th essay will be about teenage Popstar, justin bieber.

Well, more of a hate post. justin bieber born on March 1, 1994, is a Canadian pop/R&B singer. His performances were seen on YouTube by Scooter Braun, who later became his manager. Braun flew Bieber to Atlanta, Georgia, to consult with Usher and soon signed a record deal with Island Records, where he began his professional career.

So, he got discovered on youtube. 16, blonde. cute smile. voice like a 12 year-old girl. Personally, i think it's like the Guy-version of Hannah Montana. you know who is hannah montana right pa? Justin has the all the ingredients in being a cute lovable popstar. but i really think he can't really dance or sing very well. and yeah he's signed under usher's record label. and usher keeps producing R&B-rap style music for justin, and he really sucks at R&B he looks awkward. like he's trying to be black. I really think, the record label is just using him because of his looks. Soon, he'll just be a phase, and he'll be known as the boy with a Girly voice.

Essay #16

my 16th essay will be about a movie i just saw yesterday. BROTHERS


Thirty-something Captain Sam Cahill and his younger brother Tommy Cahill, are polar opposites. A Marine about to embark on his fourth tour of duty, Sam is a steadfast family man married to his high school sweetheart, the aptly named Grace, with whom he has two young daughters. Tommy, his charismatic younger brother, is a drifter just out of jail who's always gotten by on wit and charm. He slides easily into his role as family provocateur on his first night out of prison, at Sam's farewell dinner with their parents, Elsie and Hank Cahill, a retired Marine. Shipped out to Afghanistan, Sam is presumed dead when his Black Hawk helicopter is shot down in the mountains. At home in suburbia, the Cahill family suddenly faces a shocking void, and Tommy tries to fill in for his brother by assuming newfound responsibility for himself, Grace, and the children.

so basically, Tobey maguire leaves for the army. Jake gylenhall (younger brother) come home from jail. takes care of family. Jake starts to fall in love with Natalie Portman ( tobey's wife) and then tobey reporter dead in afghanistan and then he comes home! DUm dum dum! DRAMA you know?

well, this movie is VERY intense. only some scenes of course. acting was good. but i felt that natalie portman can't really act as a mother. she still too young. i'm still used to her as queen amidala! and the way they cut from scene-to-scene. its like one scene is quite intense and your still drenched in that thought of the previous scene and then suddenly CUT next scene which has a different emotion. so it's quite potong. but overall tobey maguire was quite a suprise! he did well. Quite a versatile actor. i'm impressed ;) 3-thumbs up. watch it pa. 7.5/10

Essay #15

My 15th essay will be about World Famous Japanese Manga NARUTO!

NARUTO! one of my all-time favourite japanese manga.

Sypnosis: Long time ago, in the Village of Konoha. Naruto Uzumaki is a young boy who has the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox sealed within him. Twelve years before the start of the series, the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox attacked the ninja village Konoha, slaughtering many people. In response, the leader of Konoha and its ninja military – the LEGENDARY Fourth Hokage – sacrificed his life to seal the demon inside Naruto when he was a newborn baby. Naruto grew to be a very mischievous, naughty young boy, in this adventure naruto fights bad guys, friends who betrayed the village. and his ultimate goal. to be a HOKAGE* of konoha.

*Hokage, is like the leader of a village.

Why do i like it?

I can relate to naruto, in a way. when he was 10 years old. everybody in the village hated him because of what was sealed within him. the 9 tailed demon fox.
and naruto tried to fit in, tried to make friends. but everyone just rejected him. like when i was FAT. :( also i like it because of the action and awesome powers.

Naruto has 263 episodes, 385 chapters in the manga, and 4 movies! in america it is ranked on the top 20 in the 100 best anime shows.

Naruto is still on-going with a great story. watch it pa!

Essay #14

my 13th essay will be about my chinese new year.

Well, Chinese new year went by fast. didn't it? I have to say i really misssed
it. having missed it last year due to my sweet 16 trip to JAPAN! but still the ang paos, the reunion
dinner, the gambling, the mandarin oranges, the little snacks you eat while gambling and LOTS AND LOTS OF

i missed all of those. and i'm glad i got to celebrate chinese new year my family's way.
Went to Johol, tampin and kuala pilah to see my aunts, cousins and nieces after 2 years of not seeing them.
it was all like how a usual family reunion would be like. 'oh summer! you're so pretty now! got boyfriend?"
"oh zane your so slim now! how did you do it?' 'oh agnes and peter, looking healthy!' but all of this
would be in hokkien! I really enjoyed my break, really got me connected to my dad's side of the family,
made me realize how much i missed them too. Because i only see them,maybe twice a year, 3 at most.
But the thought of when my dad is gone, it haunts me and makes me wonder 'hmm,who's going to come back
and visit tampin? me? kelvin?' Aihh...long way more to figure out. in the mean time, even if its the start of
the year. i'm looking forward to next years chinese new year! haha.

Essay #13

my 12th essay will be about Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief.

first, movie sypnosis:

Trouble-prone Percy Jackson is having problems in high school - but that's the least of his challenges. It's the 21st century, but the gods of Mount Olympus seem to have walked out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology texts and into his life. Percy has learned that his real father is Poseidon, god of the sea, which means Percy is a demigod - half human, half god. At the same time, the powerful gods on Olympus are feuding, which could launch a war enveloping our entire planet.

Now, Percy must prepare for the adventure of a lifetime, and the stakes couldn't be higher.

dum dum dum...

OVERALL. the movie effects is good! location is
nice. i like the base camp for demigods. very nice scenery. and the war games
they have for simulation. but the bad part is the ACTING. Really. i thought
the actors will be able to carry their role well. apparently not, Actor LoganSomething
failed to act his surprise/shocked expression when he saw a monster for the first time
everything was dull. As for the others, UMA Thurman made an apperance as MEDUSA. It was good
seeing uma again. all in all. the movie is 6.5/10
