Wow.. the last movie marathon was like when?? Regardless, Movie Marathon is back or was back or came back… uh nvm… It was fun nonetheless.
Movie marathon was about wow… 24 hours long…. impressive… actually saw 6 movies in 24 hours… hmmm not bad… I think… half of the time… HEY! where did the other half go?
Ok cutting to the chase. Everything started yesterday at approximately 1:30pm ish… had pot luck. I brought some garlic bread and chicken, potato mushroom thingy. Zyenn brought pasta salad. Vatty made tuna sandwiches and Yeen made sushi, jelly and cookies…. *I think I just made her sound really hardworking, hahahah nvm*
actually we only started eating about 4pm… lunchner? oh nvm…. took pics and all. Haven’t got the pics from them yet so no pics here. Ate till we got stuffed and all. Then we started our movie watching. But first I want to do some “rewinding”.
2 hours before actual movie watching: we went DVD purchasing and laughed at some DVD titles. we reached the Movie Marathon lair an hour before it started. Did some hiding and started preparing the sandwiches. A couple of minutes before start of movie marathon. Yeen mysteriously stumbles upon a cute little snowman that was sitting in the remote control pouch. She squeals and starts saying “so cute”s and “thank U”s. Situation becomes insane for a mo and she runs around frantically. then everything cools beofre we start eating. Lovely lovely. * I kinda exaggerated a lot*
Back to start of movie marathon. *the backtrack can be pretty confusing so bear with me. I want to try honing my story telling skills* Death note get pops into the DVD player. Gibberish subtitles appear. The mandarin subtitles make sense, but I read slow. The thai is pretty hard to be read by people that dunno thai. The malay and english ones were plain LAUGHABLE! *nough said*
couple of minutes into the movie and then we gave up. Infernal affairs is popped in at that KICKED off the Movie Marathon. Lovely lovely start…
I think this is my 3rd time watching. Still a good movie and all. Forgot how the show started though. However I knew exactly who was gonna die when. so I can’t really judge this movie.
Seriousness factor: 4 of 5
Quotes from Yeen :” how can he die?” “but he’s a good guy”
Quotes from Zyenn: “he so cute lar” *referring to Chapman To*
John Tucker Must Die!
Hmm this was pretty good. It was good while it lasted actually. the ending was kinda predictable. it would be nice if it were different but oh well. feel good movies are meant to make people feel good. John Tucker was sizzling… but I prefer the “other” Tucker. I must say though, John Tucker is the luckiest person on earth! I particularly liked the last part where the 3 japanese girls were looking at John Tucker’s picture and the last one went:” Holy Jama Lama” (John Tucker must die, 2006)
Laughable factor: 4 of 5
Quotes from Vatty: “what sort of ending is that”
Quotes from Me: “Probably they will all become good friends in the end.. hahaha”
Quotes from Yeen:” He (John Tucker) looks so familiar”
Quotes from Zyenn: “There…. he was in Desperate Housewives”
Mmmm.. now this one was interesting! It had Chang Chen as the lead actor and some other Japanese actor, which I didn’t catch the name though I believe I seen him in a drama serial about doctors before. Chen Bo Lin and Karena Lam was also inside. For some no apparent reason I actually like Karena Lam. Dan’t ask me why.. she tends to choose really wierd films too… Oh well.. Back to “The Silk”. The story is about how a team of police get to catch a spirit and the Japanese guy is trying to find out how does the spirit continue living on earth.
Pretty interesting show. Though it can be pretty scary at certain parts. this show emphasizes on the mother-son bond which is pretty touching.
Chill factor: 4 of 5
Quotes from Yeen: “Don’t look into the eye”
Quotes from me: “where’s the silk?”
Quotes from Zyenn: “why the lady must walk like that?”, “what is the gf doing there?”
I don’t remember wat Vatty said.. sorry eh…. she was probably lost in translation.
I was actually pretty blown away by this show… maybe not so “kua jiong” lar but it was really entertaining… Plus Jackie Chan is still pretty agile. The jumping scene from one aircond to another reminded me of Casino Royale. The baby is really CUTE.. I like his eyes…. some of the dialogue was pretty corny. Especially the one between Nicholas Tse and Daniel Wu… hahahhaha that scene in particular was crappily funny… hahaha really LOL…
I didn’t like the way Louis Koo treated Charlene Choi… so sad… kept asking her to go away… well at least he made up for it. Hopefully I didn’t spoil too much for people that haven’t seen it.
Fun factor: 4 1/4 of 5 *I’m pretty stingy with my marks*
Quotes from Yeen and Vat: “the baby so cute”
Quotes from Vatty:”What? Broke broke mountain?”
Quotes from me:” the car so nice” lol…
An American Haunting
I must say this is pretty much a horror movie but it hmm… I can’t say it’s entire horror. It’s quite a sad story actually. I say people, U have to see to understand. It was pretty eerie but everything became clear towards the end.
Spook factor: 3 3/4 of 5
Quotes from Yeen: “you won’t be scared when the movie ends”
Quotes from Zyenn: “What is he doing hunting at night”, “people never learn”
Quotes from me:” cause they didn’t have dvd’s back then so they can’t learn lor”
Quotes from Vatty:” Right very wise of U to play with the kid that no one can see”
Now a little backtrack.
Before the start of Rob-B-Hood we went for some snacks.. or rather it was dinner. We did some more hiding of certain goods.. the previous spot was too hard to be found…. started rob-b-hood and Yeen still hasn’t noticed an extra soft thingy lurking in the blanket. she seats and stands and seats repeatedly and finally… “what’s this?” “dunno” “why did U bring ur’s here?” “maybe it’s ur’s” “mine is upstairs, it’s much longer” “beats me man, mine is at home hanging round my bro’s elbow” *purple is Yeen’s and blue is the rest of us* And then I forgot wat happened… regardless she received her present and out job is done as she removed the dog’s “tongue”
The movie ended at 4 ish in the morning… headed to Yeen’s room to dunno do wat…. Reminiscended on the past and chit chatted till teh wee hours of the morning… till daybreak in actual fact… Then one by one each of us dozed of at about 6am… wanted to wake up at 7 ish to continue our marathon. Yeen said :” let’s lie down for another 5 mins”. And what do you know… 5 mins became 3 hours plus… took our time irritating the sleeping kid. She should be glad we didn’t snap pics…
Had our lunch and continued our marathon…. but Vatty left before that so sad….. but the show MUST GO ON! Halloween resurrection was picked out… but I was too freaked out to watch it so was Yeen I guess so we watched Step up instead.
Hmm.. as a whole it was pretty disappointing… it was entertaining at certain parts… generally though it was slow. I have a feeling the movie could have just ended in an hour. Heck it might have been better if it were a musical.. hahaha
Dance factor: 3 of 5
Quotes from Yeen and Zyenn: “So slow lar”
soon Zyenn left and it was me and Yeen, we played “speed” and I lost… 😦 nvm vengeance will be mine… As a whole it was a BLAST! and I got high… oh we named Yeen’s toys hahahahhha ok I better sleep. I can’t believe I’m still awake… how much energy can be replenished in 3 hours plus? Good nite now… Oh I feel like changing this skin… oh well cheerio!!
