That accidental shot and a whole lot more

whoa-not-bad


This is a photo I took when I accidentally took the photo.

*chuckles*

No, really. I accidentally took the photo because I fell asleep with the phone on the bed. I was playing Text Twist before I went to bed because I was on the verge of regaining my title of "Best Text Twist Player in This Household".

I scored 170,250 the first time around. And then Deng beat me with 222,470. And today.. more like 5am yesterday, I whooped her ass with 307,460.
Unfortch, I can't remember how I lost. Must've fallen asleep.

But I digress.

Not bad hor the photo? In a less than amateurish kinda way..
There's the Rule of Thirds somewhere in there I suppose.

Come to think of it, I really don't know how I could've taken that photo.



**I'm pretty sure you'll be blinded by the amount of text in the next few minutes.
So it's going to be colourful.


I was watching movie trailers on Apple's site, noting down those that I'd like to watch.

So far, there's 19 movies.

If it was 90 minutes per film, I'd have to use 28.4 hours to watch all of them.
I should consider a movie marathon. We shall watch illegally downloaded films (that is IF I were to download them illegally).

There's one in particular that I remember.



P2:

P2 is a level, in the context of basement parking.
It revolves around darkness and fear.

A psycho-thriller about a security guard who watches this girl's every move because he likes her and then bla bla bla. Jebus, I just do not have the patience to summarize things.

Okay, let me simplify this.

Essentially. Christmas Eve, late at night, Angela still in office. Calls it a night. In parking lot. Car won't start. Security guard comes and help. Nothing works. Security guard offers to cook her a Christmas dinner at the office. Angela declines. She calls a cab, but building is locked down. She's stuck in the dark. Guess who's the antagonist?

After I watched the trailer, one part of me wanted to see it but the other part was judging the part of me that wanted to see it. Like, "Eeew. Really?"

I showed it to Deng and I asked her if she would watch it.
She said: "NO way... It's every girl's worst nightmare..."

The cast consists of Rachel Nichols (the other chick in Alias working with Sydney Bristow) and Wes Bently (Weird kid with the video recorder in American Pie).

One thing that makes it oh-so-typical-Hollywood is that her cleavage was there pretty much whenever she was on screen (I haven't watched it but really, it's not hard to tell).

Release Date: March 2008


Moving on...


Enchanted:

Looks like fun. Although I have severe cringititis whenever I watch a Disney movie (because they're so darn corny), the "ChicKFlicKLoVeR88" in me still likes watching them.

And Patrick Dempsey looks weird without his five o'clock shadow.

Release Date: End of this month!


Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber from Fleet Street:

Another one of those crazy ass films that Johhny Depp made crazy.
I'm excited about this one.

Although it's actually tiresome to see Helena Bonham Carter play a crazed scary woman. Again. Well, except she's not so crazy here. Not like Bellatrix Lestrange fresh-out-of-Azkaban crazy.

Release Date: January 2008


Juno:

It's a dramedy about a teen impregnated by her classmate... Again, let's do the "essentially" thing.

Essentially. Girl impregnated by weird classmate. Girl decides to give baby away for adoption. Adoptive parents are Jennifer Garner and Jason Bateman. And we follow her throughout her pregnancy. Yada yada yada.

Ellen Page plays the pregnant teen. She was the psycho kid in Hard Candy.

So far there's no slated date for Juno's premiere in Malaysia. Probably gonna get banned or something for promoting teen pregnancies.

Release Date: 24th January 08 (Australia)


August Rush:

There's some wicked fret-tapping going on in that movie.

The film stars Keri Russell, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Morgan Freeman update: Morgan Freeman is NOT in this movie!!, Robin Williams, Terence Howard and Freddie Highmore.

Essentially. Cellist Keri Russell hooks up with Guitarist Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Got pregnant. Gave baby up against her will because of her stupid father. 11 years later. Keri Russell wants to get her baby boy back. Baby boy all grown up wants to look for his parents. And so the journey begins. Bla bla bla.

I like Keri Russell. I don't know why I like her, but I do.
Her death in MI:3 made me go "Oh Snap"! That eyeball thing was creepy.

A movie that has music in it is definitely a plus point. Not in the literal sense okay...

Release Date: 21st November 07 (USA)


Did the colours kill your eyes instead?

Crap, this is getting too long.
And I need sleep. Why oh why did my writing bug have to come at my time of sleep?
