If one doesn’t want to stay at home and is already sick and tired of the malls, what can one do on the weekends?
take a drive to another town? check out the art scene? have a walk in the park? do things that one doesn’t normally do? I dunno, is KL all about malls, malls and more malls? Hopefully not.
Anyway, I spent my last 2 days catching up on movies, some fairly new, some fairly old. The first was “Waiting”, staring Ryan Reynolds, Justin Long and Anna Faris.
Pretty odd show to me, but fairly entertaining. It is about the going ons in a restaurant, from the hostess to the kitchen staff. Of course it also showed how awful customers can be, and how kitchen staff can treat To me it seemed to apply that waiting on tables is pretty much a dead end job. *That’s what I felt la… U can always feel otherwise*.
However, I felt it was slightly better than “I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry”.
This was definitely an Adam Sandler movie, though it isn’t as lol funny. It kinda showed the difficulty of being gay and how people tend to isolate gays for who they are, kinda sad stuff if one thinks of it. But, other than that this show was fairly predictable, I liked the priest that married them off, silly fella, he didn’t even sound or look Japanese… -.-”
Now the movie which I felt was the most entertaining is “Stardust”.
Starring Claire Danes, Charlie Cox, Sienna Miller, Rupert Everett, Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer and was apparently narrated by Sir Ian McKellan. WOW! Such big names! Must be a huge production. It was hands down the most entertaining, pretty funny too, though there wasn’t a lot of lol kind but more to a snigger or a chortle kind. *Hahaha, what the heck am I saying?*
*SPOILER AHEAD* Seeing Michelle Pfeiffer as an old ugly witch is definitely something new and Robert De Niro in women’s clothes… HAHAHA… Oh and the dead princes’ as a whole was pretty entertaining, they looked like how they look when they died… Which is pretty hilarious as one had an axe in it’s head and another was probably iced, another who died in the bathtub… was well…
The story is basically about a boy, Tristan Thorn (Charlie Cox) who wants to cross a wall into the fantasy world of Stormhold to get the fallen star for his dearly beloved Victoria (Sienna Miller). He goes into Stormhold looking for his mother but ends up catching the star. However; there are other people that are after the star too. The star is actually wearing a gem that should the King’s son obtains it and it changes into a red ruby, the prince will be the King of Stormhold. The witch played by Michelle Pfeiffer *I forgot the name of the witch* is also after the star as when witches eat the heart of the star, they can live for eternity.
On thier way back to Wall, where Tristan comes from, they meet pretty interesting characters like Robert De Niro’s pirate. Soon love blossoms but like always the star is caught by the witch and is up to the hero of the day to save her life once and for all. Soon the star is saved and Tristan learns that he is the son of Una, the last surviving child of the ex-King of Stormhold. So Tristan becomes the King and the star, Yvaine becomes the Queen and so forth and so forth.
The story is pretty predictable but entertaining nonetheless, the effects are nice, there aren’t any unbelievable CGI, the scenery is beautiful, the speeches are well written, the lead actor although might seem a little sissified ends up being pretty dashing. Ultimately, it’s pretty much a feel good movie, a fantasy feel good movie, which is well written, well acted and well presented! Go watch!
By the way, this Claire Danes movie was hands down better than “Evening” another Claire Danes movie where the whole story revolved someone names Harris… -.-” it was actually a story about love and a woman in her deathbed that remembered an eventful time in her past a long long time ago.
Cheerios now, I hope everyone has something to do this weekend, sadly I didn’t.. sob sob…
