Transformers 3: Dark of The Moon


Transformers 3 (T3) is the most anticipated movie of this summer other than the last installment of Harry Potter. It started with a storytelling voice of Optimus Prime rambling about how the last Autobots technology that could made them win the battle being shot down on the moon. American and the USSR are aware of this incident and both of them tried to send the first man to the moon with a secret mission to collect the sample of alien tech or lifeforms.

I'm not gonna tell up the rest of the plots as it would cause me a lot of time (the movie is a freaking 2 hours 32 minutes long). Micheal Bay seems to take it for granted as he repeated the same mistake that he did in Transformers 2 which is the sucks storyline. I bet he could hire more incredible script writers as he gained lots of money from previous movies, but what's done is done. I would be more proper for me to list out the likes and dislikes for T3 and cinema hall.

  • Impressive CGI effect
  • bought the ticket at RM7.00 only
  • comfortable seats at TGV 1st Avenue
  • The actress in T3 (couldn't remember her name)
  • Illogical plots ( I know this is a sci-fi but how can hundreds of Decepticons just vanish during the battle? How a former agent give command to special force? Shouldn't it be the US President? and others)
  • No heart pumping, adrenaline rushing feeling like when I watched the trailer (don't know what when wrong)
  • There's a lots of different robots in the animation but they only managed to bring few of them ( I'm a fan since I was a kid)
  • Where are the other Autobots who didn't die during T2 go?
There are sure a lots of ranting from me. Since people only going to watch T3 because of the robots and not because of the plots, therefore i will give 4.5 out of 5 due to amazing CGI.

Green Lantern

Since its summer, lots of Hollywood blockbuster movies lining up to be release in the cinema (there's go my allowances). This is going to be my second movie review this year.


Green Lantern is another movie adaptation based on a superhero comic from DC Comics (Superman, Batman & etc). The movie starts of with an introduction of Green Lantern Corps and how Abin Sur managed to imprisoned Parallax at a planet without life form. Unfortunately, three aliens were stranded in that planet causing the Parallax to be released. Rest of the plots can be read here.

Although Batman did a really great job in Dark Knight, this movie failed to impress me just like other DC Comics adaption especially Superman. If you're looking for action pack movie, please forget it. Not much action you can get from this movie. The villains were easily been defeated, no adrenaline pumping scene and the story sucks. All I can say is the CG effect save this movie from rotten tomatoes. I'm giving 2.5 from 5 STARS. My advice for those who haven't watch it yet, save up your money for Transformers 3 and Harry Potter. I bet those movies are worth more to watch.

P/s: I've been fooled by this trailer.

Super 8 (Movie)

It's been a while since the last time I did a movie review. Just watched Super 8 with my friends today. It was definitely worth every penny u spend.


The story revolves around a group of teenagers that wants to shoot a short film for a film festival competition. During the filming at a train station, they've involved in a tragedy where a train from US Airforce derailed and an alien escape from the accident. The rest of the synopsis can be read at wikipedia.

What am I going to review about is the way the director create a humor atmosphere during serious moments especially about the boy who love explosive and fire. This was totally brilliant to loosen up the audiences emotion during an intense or should I say life threatening scene in the movie. There was even a foreigner inside the cinema who's been laughing out loud.

The next best thing was how the director blend in together the emotion of sadness, happiness, love, cruelty, anger, humor and other emotions inside this movie. The emotion from losing your love one until rescuing the one you love was definitely awesome. Those kids in the movie really did a great job acting in it.

One advice for those who haven't see it, if you want to watch the movie make sure to stay until the credits end. There will be the short film of zombie that the kids filmed. I'm giving 4.5 STARS out of 5.
