My friends on the mainland think just because I live in Hawaii, I live in paradise. Like a permanent vacation. We’re all just out here sipping Mai Tais, shaking our hips, and catching waves. Are they insane?
i took jingga to watch cinderella last week. she wasn’t too crazy about the movie, but loooooove the short movie before it: frozen fever. and as an adult, i love it too it’s like meeting some old friends.
we met elsa, anna, kristoff and olaf again. they were celebrating anna’s birthday. but something was happening.
I finally figured it out. It’s like when they realized it was gonna be too expensive to actually build cyborgs and robots. I mean, the costs of that were impossible. They decided to just let humans turn themselves into robots. That’s what’s going on right now. I mean, why not? They’re billions of us just laying around, not really doing anything. We don’t cost anything. We’re even pretty good at self-maintenance and reproducing constantly. And as it turns out, we’re already biologically programmed for our little cyborg upgrades. I read this thing the other day about how When you hear that ding on your inbox, you get like a dopamine rush in your brain. It’s like we’re being chemically rewarded for allowing ourselves to be brainwashed. How evil is that?
so many excellent review about this movie because of its twist story. but i read the book, so i wasn’t too surprise. the book was awesome and the movie is not bad either. and of course like a movie from a book, it lost some details.
i didn’t imagine someone like ben affleck to play as nick dunn, but he was good.
i read the book of thief about 2 years ago when i still have my weekly trip to singapore. it was a good book and like other good books, it leaves a deep feeling after reading it.
last week, i had a chance watching the movie of it. and it was not bad at all. capturing most things in the book. i like the girl who played as liesel and the little boy as rudi. it wasn’t as i imagined when reading the book. but they looked what it should be in the movie.
last week, we took jingga to see a movie for the first time. the movie was monsters university.
at first we were worry jingga would be afraid of the dark and got bored. but she stayed for the whole movie! she was quite amazed with the big screen and the sound. she refused to eat but drink once a while. she moved seat a few times but generally she was ok.
“Disney has just released the six-minute short on YouTube. The beautiful black-and-white film follows a young man in his fruitless attempts to get the attention of a young lady he encounters on the train, and combines hand-drawn animation with CG for a unique and charming visual style. Paperman may be brief, but it manages to evoke more emotion in just a few minutes than most feature length movies do in two hours and it does so barely uttering a single word.” by Andrew Webster
there were time when i watch several movies in a week. but it’s the past. now, time for watching movies is such a luxury.
but finally i had time after jingga asleep and the work was not overloaded. i watched 2 movies: argo and separation. i need 2 days to finish each movie. i’ve been wanting to watch them because of the good reviews. accidentally, both movie is set in iran.
after about 2 years i finally went to cinema again. the movie was life of pi.
when i read the book years ago, i didn’t think it will turned into a movie. too hard. but it did. maybe because i haven’t been to a movie for a long time or just the 3D effect, i felt the movies was awesome. less boring than the book. and i like the images of the zoo at the beginning of the movie.
and this richard parker character is the main thing in the movie. it kept pi alive and so is the movie.
i was still living in bali when i read life of pi. even i think some part of the book is desperately boring, i still categorize the book as one of the memorable one especially because of its unique story.
