Movie Review: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

I should be studying. I really should be studying.. Aiyah. Who cares? Taking breaks are needed you know.

The Poster:

The Trailer:

The Synopsis:

This movie is actually an adaptation of a novel of the same name. It tells us about Benjamin Button, a man who is born old and grows younger as time goes by. The movie more or less chronicles his life, how he lived in it, how he grew up in it and such. His story, set in New Orleans from the end of World War I in 1918, into the 21st century, is as unusual as any man's life can be.

The Review:

First of all, OMG. BRAD PITTT!!!!!!!!!! *squeals like a 13 year old school girl* Dang. He is oh so gorgeous!!! In the movie when he gets younger, that is. I tell you I could not keep my eyes off him. Sure, he looks old now, but when he was young.... Oh man.



These two pics I added because I like them. :P

Now I know why everyone's been raving about him.
He looks better then you Twilight people's Edward Cullen OKAYY????

Ick lahhhh...
He always looks like he's gonna hit someone.
Now, Brad Pitt, he's a totally different story.
*ducks from Twilight fans thowing stones*
Which reminds me, I have finally seen the movie, and will be reviewing it soon! :)

Ooh Ooh! And Cate Blanchett is absolutely beautiful!
I think people have been neglecting her lah.
Her performance, as usual, was stunning ok?
I've always had a thing for her films. :P

Pretttyyy!! :D

Ok, I've been sidetracked from the review for too long.
Here's the REAL review:

I've always loved touching, heart-rendering films. ESPECIALLY those that can make me cry. And let me tell you, not many movies can make me cry. Remember the genius-ness of What's Eating Gilbert Grape?. And what about I Am Sam? Well, The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button is one of those rare movies that can make me cry. But rest assured, I was thoroughly impartial when I started watching the film. I wasn't even drooling all over Brad Pitt like I did earlier. the drooling started when he became younger. I can't help it lah. He was sooo gorgeous! The best part about Benjamin Button is that is not like those shallow, stupid, non-issue kinda movies. It makes you think. It's a movie with an actual message. In short, it is a great movie. The effects, especially, were awesome! That obviously took a lot of patience. I ask you, did you think it was that easy to turn this:

to THIS??????

Not easy at all.

Rating: 4/5, a must-watch.

Vote Earth

We vote for politicians.

We vote for our government.

We vote for singers.

We vote for many things, really.

But have we considered, voting for..... Earth?

We Malaysians complain endlessly: "Very hot lah today!" Do you know why? It's not just because we live in a tropical climate, a huge part of it is also because of global warming. Don't you think it's about time we did something about it?

It's not JUST the hot weather I'm talking about here. It's the very fact that the Earth is dying because of global warming. We only have one Earth. We live in it. Shouldn't it be our duty to save it?

Take a stand now and support Earth Hour by switching off all your lights for one hour on Saturday, March 28 2009 at 8.30PM to 9.30PM. Take that time to think what you can do to fight against global warming.

Remember, we only have ONE Earth. Save it before it's too late.


I've signed up, what about you?

Infinite Dots

What would it be like, if I wasn't born?

My parents would have more money.
They wouldn't have to worry about my college fees.
My brother may not have turned out to have ADHD.
My youngest brother wouldn't have someone to annoy all the time.
My grandfather wouldn't have anyone to show his priceless violin to.
My mum would have less grey hairs.
My dad could've renovated my house earlier.
There would be more space in the house.
My psycho aunt might still be living with us.
There would be no granddaughter in the Woo family. (I'm the only one they have)

I don't think anything would change among my high school mates. Seeing as I'm normally left out.

Irene would have someone else to rant to.
Regina and Irene may never have become friends.
Joyce Ngu would have 1 less English speaking person at NS.
Wee Sheong would've gone to NS alone.
He would also have one less person to whack him on the arm.
The breadman who comes by my house would have no reason to sell popcorn.
Chester would have 1 less person to go gaga with over Rachael Yamagata.
Han Ling may never have heard of Soko.
Jone would have 1 less person to irritate.
William will have 1 less person to tell his secret fear to.
Jone and Jun Lung wouldn't have gotten that sentimental gift.
Molly would've slept next to an empty bed back at NS.
Yih Ling could sleep peacefully through the night without me waking her.
The creepy NS guy may still be sane.

Weng Kit would have no one to play Power Rangers with him.
Shaddap lah, I was 4.
San San wouldn't have a girl to share things with.
No one would've played the violin at my school.
My portrait would not be at the center of the IACT gallery.
The trophies on display at home would not be mine.
One less blur person on the face of the Earth.
One less person to point and laugh at the lala-s.
Oh did I just say that out loud?
One less person in the class.
One less worrier in the class.

This isn't much, but I guess I do make some sort of impact.
Small as it may be.
This is just from my point of view lah. I don't know. The impact could be smaller..

Or bigger.
