Stop Child Abuse!

Child abuse is the physical, sexual or emotional mistreatment of children. I don't know why people bear to see a little tiny kid crying in front of you. When you see his/her skinny little body, how can you even bear to hit the kid? What right do you have to hit a human being without any valid reason? Why should the children become a tool to vent your anger? I don't know whats wrong with those pedo fella. They are just kids. What do you expect from their tiny body? Sexual abuse is the one which I detest the most. I always cry when I read about child abuse. I'm glad that I was brought up in a healthy happy warm family which my parents showered their love and care equally to 3 of their daughters. Click on this post if you read chinese . This is a very sad story about a China lil girl. It never fail to make me cry everytime I read it. I used to put in many pictures in my blog post, but this time, I didn't put any. Photos related to child abuse are so scary and and made me feel heartache. I'm not someone who love kids so much but I treat them as human being. I respect them, as another individual. I hope these acts of child abuse will stop one day. Please, I don't want to see sad face on those children. Raise your hand, stop child abuse now. It'll never be too late. unicef

Unstoppable

Friends were talking about how awesome is this movie, so yea, I went to watch it in TGV Sunway Pyramid. This is the worst cinema I ever been to. The seat is kinda small. neck and head wasn't cushioned or get to rest on anything. and you better watch out throughout the movie. why ? your head will be kicked by people who sitting behind you anytime. This is so dangerous. Bring your enemy to this cinema, and you got plenty of chance to take revenge. Synopsis: Unstoppable, a 20th Century Fox drama about a runaway train carrying a cargo of toxic chemicals. Pits an engineer and his conductor in a race against time. They're chasing the runaway train in a separate locomotive and need to bring it under control before it derails on a curve and causes a toxic spill that will decimate a town. Trailer here My point of view: This movie is inspired by the 'Crazy Eight' unmanned train incident in 2001. Since it is a movie based on true events, it is expected to be exaggerated. Before that I heard my friends were talking a train with school kids, I thought it will be something like a story between the unmanned train and the train with kids. but who knows, the kids part is just at the beginning, the main part is how Frank and Will tried to stop the train. I don't know how should I describe my feeling towards this part. It is nice and interesting as well, and I did feel worries/scared/whatever when they did something dangerous. But, this part is tooooooooo long la. I was keep thinking: 'can this damn train stopped it now?' I wasn't that patient , so I just want to know the whole story asap. This thinking kinda sucks. I like Ned btw. He appeared like a hero. and he is so funny. HAHAHA And I got a question towards Darcy too. She is Will's wife. why did she start cherish him only after he became a hero of the country? This is kind of realistic lo. Anyway, happy to see the family reunite. This movie actually made me think about every little thing that I did in my life. The engineer who made mistake at the beginning, never thought that this mistake can cause such big disaster. And it made me think, life is really fragile. cherish what you got now and people who love u. Frank called his daughters and Will called his wife before they were going to stop the unmanned train. They just want to express their love towards their beloved because they know they might not have the chance to do it again . Who will I call if I know I might be dying very soon?

The Social Network

I know about this movie through friends. So many people were talking about it, and it was once the hot topic among me and my friends. I just wonder how is it going to make it a movie, which the topic is Facebook? Official site for the movie , click here . You can get all the casts and trailer here. Synopsis (please don't read this part of you don't want to know the plot) :

In 2003, Harvard University student Mark Zuckerberg has the idea to create a website to rate the attractiveness of female Harvard undergraduates after his girlfriend Erica Albright breaks up with him. Mark hacks into the databases of various residence halls, downloads pictures and names of female students and, in a few hours, using an algorithm for ranking chess players supplied by his best friend Eduardo Saverin, he creates a website called "FaceMash", where male students can iteratively choose which of two girls presented at a time is more attractive.

Mark is punished with six months of academic probation after the traffic to the site brings down parts of Harvard's network, and becomes vilified among most of Harvard's female community. However, the popularity of "FaceMash" and the fact that he created it in one night, while drunk, brings him to the attention of Cameron Winklevoss and Tyler Winklevoss, identical twins and members of Harvard's rowing team, and their business partner Divya Narendra. As a result, he gains a job working for the Winklevoss twins as the programmer of their website, Harvard Connection.

Soon afterwards, Mark approaches his friend Eduardo and tells him of his idea for what he calls "Thefacebook", an online social networking website exclusive to Harvard University students. He explains this would let people share personal and social information securely. Eduardo agrees to help Mark, providing a thousand dollars to help start the site. Once complete, they distribute the link to Eduardo's connections at the Phoenix S-K final club, and it quickly becomes popular throughout the student body. When they learn of Thefacebook, the Winklevoss twins and Narendra believe that Zuckerberg stole their idea while simultaneously stalling on their website; Cameron and Divya want to sue Mark for intellectual property theft, but Tyler convinces them they can settle the matter as "Harvard gentlemen" without resorting to the courts.

At a lecture by Bill Gates, fellow Harvard University student Christy Lee introduces herself and her friend Alice to Eduardo and Mark. She asks that the boys "Facebook us", which impresses both of them. The girls invite them to a bar, where they have sex in the restroom. Mark later runs into his ex-girlfriend, who is not aware of The Facebook's existence because she is not a Harvard University student. Stung by this, Mark decides to expand the site to more schools.

As The Facebook grows in popularity, they expand to other schools in the Northeastern United States, while the Winklevoss twins and Narendra become angrier at seeing "their idea" advance without them. Tyler refuses to sue them, instead accusing Mark of violating the Harvard student Code of Conduct. Through their father's connections they arrange a meeting with Harvard President Larry Summers, who is dismissive and sees no potential value in either a disciplinary action or in Thefacebook website itself.

Through Christy Lee, now Eduardo's girlfriend, Eduardo and Mark arrange a meeting with Napster co-founder Sean Parker. When Christy, Mark and Eduardo meet Parker, Eduardo becomes skeptical of Parker, noting his problematic personal and professional history. Mark, however, is impressed with Parker since he presented a similar vision of Facebook. Although no deals are reached, Parker suggests that they drop "The" from Thefacebook to make it simply "Facebook".

Mark moves the company's base of operation to Palo Alto, at Parker's suggestion, while Eduardo remains in New York for seeking advertising support, When Eduardo visits from New York, he is angered to find that Parker is living at the house and making business decisions for Facebook. After an argument with Mark, Eduardo freezes the company's bank account and returns to New York. Upon returning, Christy and Eduardo argue about his Facebook profile, which still lists him as "single". Christy accuses Eduardo of cheating on her and sets fire to a scarf he gave to her as a gift. While Eduardo extinguishes the fire, Mark reveals on the phone that they have secured money from an angel investor through Parker's contacts. As a result of Christy's jealousy, Eduardo ends his relationship with her.

Meanwhile in England, while competing in the Henley Royal Regatta for Harvard, the Winklevoss twins become outraged that Facebook has expanded to a number of universities there and decide to sue. Eduardo has also discovered the deal he signed with Parker's investors allows them to dilute his share of the company from thirty-four percent to three hundrendths of a percent, while maintaining the ownership percentage of all other parties. He confronts his erstwhile friend Mark and announces his intention to sue him. Later that night, Parker, along with a number of Facebook interns, is arrested for possession of cocaine during a party thrown on the occasion of Facebook's 1 millionth member.

The framing device throughout the film shows Mark testifying in depositions in two lawsuits: one filed by the Winklevoss twins, and the other filed by Eduardo. In the final scene, a junior lawyer for the defense informs Mark they will be settling with Eduardo, since the sordid details of Facebook's founding and Mark's personality will make a jury highly unsympathetic. The film ends with Mark sending a friend request to his former girlfriend Erica on Facebook, and refreshing the page every few seconds waiting for a response.

(taken from wikipedia)

My point of view:

This movie is awesome. I enjoyed it very much. From a lawsuit, it brings out the whole story. From how a genius started a website, then continue developing to the Facebook that everyone is using now. But this movie made me felt that Zuckerberg is just like a genius who trying so hard to achieve what Sean Parker wants. I love the storyline. It is funny and interesting.

Their acting are fabulous as well. Natural, real and I felt they are the characters themselves. The director did successfully bring the audience to feel the excitement, dissapointment, anger or happiness throughout the movie.

It motivates youngsters who got high ambition and nice idea. Just do it. You will never know how much return will you get. Perhaps it is just a game , it may turns out to be something that you didn't expect.

Facebook is part of most of the people's life now. At least for me, the first thing after I on my laptop, is to check my Facebook.

Anyway, the ending is awkward. Is just like, it ended suddenly. I expected to see a better ending. At least, not keep refreshing someone's profile=.=

So is any movie about Twitter coming soon?

This movie is cool. I would like to watch it again if I got the chance.

Facebook me :)

Megamind 3D

This review is a bit too late,i should write it 2 weeks ago, but well, nvm, in case anyone of you not yet watch it. Trailer is here Synopsis

Megamind (Will Ferrell) is a super-intelligent alien who—at the age of eight days old—is sent to Earth by his parents as his home planet is destroyed by a black hole. However, he lands in The Prison for the Criminally Gifted, thanks to another infant alien similarly sent from a different planet who eventually becomes a superhero known as Metro Man (Brad Pitt), defender of the fictional Metro City. As a result, Megamind is raised as a social deviant, who is neglected for his destructive intellect, with his fish-like sidekick Minion (David Cross) as his only friend. Realizing that he is only gifted in causing trouble, and jealous of all of the attention young Metro Man receives, Megamind becomes a supervillain to rival Metro Man, though he is thwarted on a regular basis. During one of his many attempts to defeat Metro Man, Megamind kidnaps news reporter Roxanne Ritchi (Tina Fey) and uses her as bait to lure Metro Man into the city observatory where Megamind intends to kill him with a death ray. The plan appears flawed enough for Metro Man to escape, but he proclaims that the inside of the observatory is lined with copper, which he says drains his power. Metro Man is then seemingly killed by the death ray. Megamind is initially happy that he has defeated his archenemy, but soon grows depressed over the fact that without someone to fight, his life as a supervillain no longer has any purpose.

Megamind talks with Roxanne while disguised as a museum curator named Bernard and is inspired to create a new superhero to fight using a serum of Metro Man's DNA. Hoping to uncover any evil plans Megamind has for the city, Roxanne breaks into Megamind's lair and fights with him over a syringe gun containing the serum, which is accidentally fired and injected into Roxanne's cameraman Hal Stewart (Jonah Hill). Megamind manipulates Hal into becoming a superhero named Tighten, but at the same time falls in love with Roxanne and begins dating her while disguised as Bernard. Tighten attempts to use his powers to woo Roxanne, but is quickly spurned and grows jealous of the Bernard-disguised Megamind. Megamind soon begins having second thoughts about being a villain, finding more enjoyment pursuing a relationship with Roxanne. He then gets in a fight with Minion and the two friends have a falling out. After kissing "Bernard" on a date, Megamind's identity is accidentally exposed and Roxanne rejects him, saying she could never be with him. Heartbroken, Megamind follows through with his plan to fight Tighten. By this time, however, Tighten has decided he would rather be a supervillain since, in his view, being a superhero is too much hard work. Unlike Metro Man, Tighten has no qualms with outright killing Megamind, especially when he reveals himself to be "Bernard" and he is forced to flee for his life. With nobody to stop him, Tighten begins wreaking havoc in Metro City.

Noticing how one of his copper-based attacks during the fight had no effect on Tighten, Megamind convinces Roxanne to search for clues on his weakness in Metro Man's old hideout. There they discovered that Metro Man is still alive and learn that he faked his death (and his weakness to copper) so that he could retire from being a superhero and live his true passion: music. Megamind and Roxanne try to persuade Metro Man to defeat Tighten, but he refuses and instead Megamind turns himself in. When Tighten kidnaps Roxanne, however, Megamind is broken out of prison by Minion and goes to save her. Megamind defeats Tighten by draining Metro Man's DNA from his body, stripping him of his powers, and Hal ends up in Megamind's former prison cell while Megamind is embraced by Metro City as its new defender. Roxanne accepts Megamind just as he is after he proves himself a true hero. Megamind begins to enjoy his new reputation as a superhero and Roxanne's beau while a disguised Metro Man silently congratulates him.

A post-credits scene shows Minion doing the laundry then Bernard pops out of the washing machine claiming that this was the worst day of his life, Minion then responds and whacks him with a forget-me-stick.

My point of view:

It is just like any other superhero cartoon. I expected it to be very funny but it doesn't. But, it still ok la. acceptable. The story has some twisting part which surprise me thou.

The voices are nice! I enjoyed listening to all the voices throughout the movie without opening my eyes. I watch this movie in 3D, it disappoints me very much. The effect is not good. I might as well watch it in 2D.

I'm kind of disappointed but yay, this movie does convey good moral value at the end.

When hero is not a hero anymore, nobody is going to save the world. When supposed-to-be hero turns to be a villain , the villain who created the so-called hero becomes the hero. Sounds complicated? It is not. Watch the movie and you'll understand it.

Kids gonna love this movie so much

Skyline

Yesterday I went to the screening in Wangsa Walk which is somewhere I never heard before. and I'm kinda regret to go there all the way from my house just for this movie. Synopsis Strange lights descend on the city of Los Angeles, drawing people outside like moths to a flame where an extraterrestrial force threatens to swallow the entire human population off the face of the Earth. watch the trailer here Eric Balfour He is the only reason I sit inside the cinema from beginning till the end. without him, I think I am gonna leave the cinema 20 min after the movie started. No matter his face is like this or the normal one, I think he is really handsome. I think this movie is not a good one. worst movie I ever watch. No offense to anyone, that's just my point of view. The jumping scene, unorganized storyline, boring plot, all that made me wanted to leave the cinema anytime. or maybe it is just me who don't know how to enjoy this kind of movie. highly not recommended to watch it. recommended for people who are too rich and wanted to donate some money to the cinema or people with too much free time. but this movie is just about an hour. Not gonna say more about it. rate: 0.5 out of 5 star
