dragonball evolution

Filed under: Movie — J Martin @ 1:41 am

went to cinema yesterday evening with two of my friends.

my comments:

the movie was rated 18pg, means that kids are not supposed to watch it. but yesterday, the hall was almost half full by kids with their ‘very very responsible’ parents … some parents even brought their babies … one baby was constantly crying throughout the movie … the parents must be really really stupid and careless with their baby … pity the baby who was ‘forced/tortured’ to stay in a dark hall with sound like hell for about one and a half hour …. and it was really really distracting too …

there were kissing scenes which i thought are not appropriate for kids to watch. but perhaps kids nowadays are more ‘matured’ so i guess it isn’t a big issue. or maybe their parents want their kids to learn from such early age? who knows? …. y’know .. the basic things of err … sex edu?

the movie itself. overall, it’s a movie. yeah, you smart. the opening was okay. in the middle i felt bored. then i was thinking, why im being so stupid to even watch this movie? there were scenes – goku, bulma and master roshi were trapped down in a hole at the desert. while in the previous scenes they (except bulma) can fly-kicks, jump up and down like hell but at that particular scene, they were useless and err … ‘escapeless’ … while actually at the end of the scene master roshi finally jumped up and confronts yamcha … but why wait so long and weep down there while at the end they can easily escape?

the special effects weren’t that impressive. it shouldn’t be called ‘special’ if there’s no special at all …

chi chi … one busty chick. well, she’s kinda hot but not that much … i wish chi chi was played by someone else … and i thought chi chi was supposed to be decent … not boyfriend-switcher like in the movie … so typical … bulma should couple with goku and chi chi should couple with yamcha instead or remains with her previous boyfriend (yes, this is out of story) but in the movie, i’d prefer that more …

the final scene where goku transformed into beast … where in hell that happened? as far as im concerned, goku can transform into super saiya only, not that ugly beast …

the kame kame ha … haa! …

those who never read the comic, or never watch the anime, or even heard about dragonball would probably find this movie quite entertaining. but for those followers, there will be chance to get annoyed while watching this movie, just like me … im not even an avid follower of dragonball.

Good Will Hunting

I know it’s an old movie but it’s worth to watch and re-watch again coz it’s very inspiring. In my opinion, it teaches us to appreciate our lives and handle it … And the way people can manipulate our lives also we need to be carefully understand, coz we actually have the power to handle our own lives.

There’s one thing we should remember, we won’t change unless it’s us wanting or willing to do so …

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

Filed under: Movie — J Martin @ 11:13 pm

I am a bit disappointed because it wasn’t what I’ve expected. I thought that it must be better than the first one. But it wasn’t. And the actors were quite unconvincing too. But I applaud the special effect because it’s the only thing I am pleased to see. I think the special effect saved this movie a lot …

And I was reminded of a few actions from other films such as Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. And Forbidden Kingdom too. There was a scene where all the four ‘kings’ and ‘queens’ of Narnia transported from their modern world to the world of Narnia, via an old subway. Very much of Harry Potter. The creatures? The flying eagle-like creature, is it from the Lord of the Rings? And the big water-monster too? LOTR? The moving tress? LOTR again? How about the final scene where Aslan made this magic tree opened up and produced a gate for the people to transfer to other world? This scene reminded me of Forbidden Kingdom when Jason Tripitikas transported back to his modern world.
