Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017)

kingsman the golden circle

 

I wanted to write a review of this film after seeing it, but it is being delayed for a few month. I have to admit I quite enjoy the movie but I was hoping that the movie could focus more on the Roxy character not just concentrate on Eggsy.

I hate the final battle with Poppy Adams, and I was hoping she could fight with Eggsy but her death too easy! I do hope Roxy will be back in the third film. I’m quite bored with Eggsy character! But I did enjoy Elton John’s special appearance in that movie.

I like the first Kingsman: The Secret Service, it is because of Gazelle character, and sadly she died fighting Eggsy! Haha… I wished Eggsy killed on that particular scene.

Anyway, I will watch the third film and hope that Halle Berry’s character as Ginger Ale can fill the void of female agents.

It (2017)

Finally, I had the opportunity to watch IT movie after two attempts were spoilt. I enjoy watching the new version of IT. But I still love the older IT miniseries even though at that time the technology is not so advanced like nowadays.

For me the older IT much creepier when Georgie met the clown especially the facial expression and the dialogue. The new IT much bloodier compared to the older one.

Pennywise: Hi, Georgie! Aren’tcha gonna say… hello? [Georgie shakes his head] Awww, come on bucko! Don’t you want a… balloon?

Georgie: I’m not supposed to take stuff from strangers; My dad said so.

Pennywise: Very wise of ya dad, Georgie – very wise indeed. I, Georgie, am Pennywise the Dancin Clown – and you are Georgie! So now we know each other! Keeerect?

Georgie: I guess so… I gotta go.

Pennywise: Go? Without this? [shows Georgie his fallen paper boat]

Georgie: It’s my boat!

Pennywise: EEX-actly! Go on, kiddo… Take it. [Georgie stares, unsure about reaching into the stormdrain for his boat] Awww… You want it, don’t you, Georgie? Of course you do… and there’s cotton candy, rides, and all sorts of surprises down here… and balloons too! All colors.

Georgie: Do they float? [reaches in for his boat]

Pennywise[face begins changing from a smile to a frown] Ohh yes… they float Georgie… they float… and when you’re down here, with me… YOU’LL FLOAT TOO!

[Pennywise grabs Georgie’s arm and pulls him toward the stormdrain]

 

Thanks to IT miniseries until now I don’t really like clowns because they look so creepy with that thick and heavy makeup plus the red nose and big mouth. I guessed IT clown gives an impact on my dislike of clowns.

UNBOXING ATOMIC BLONDE OST

It’s been awhile since I wrote anything. I took a break for ten days from 22 until 31 August to travel to Europe before starting my PhD journey. While in Europe my Atomic Blonde CD arrived and luckily my brother was there to pick it up for me. I was happy to get the CD, but I wished it’s included all the songs that were in the film.

Back to my Europe trip, I went to six countries, and the countries are UK, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Switzerland and France. I always wanted to visit London and Paris ever since my late mother visited both countries when I was a kid; unfortunately, I don’t have enough time to explore my favourite cities because I went with a travel agency. The time is insufficient to explore, and I don’t get to climb the Eiffel Tower because Paris was our last destination before flying back to Malaysia.

According to the itinerary, the time to visit Eiffel is the next morning after check-in to the hotel. Luckily, the tours guide willingly to bring some of the energetic group to visit Eiffel Tower at night after we check-in. I was freaking tired, but love conquers all, I force myself to go and see Eiffel Tower. Finally, I managed to visit the most famous Eiffel Tower and the moment I was standing in front of the Eiffel Tower and enjoying the light show for about 5 to 10 minutes. Out of the blue in the background, my favourite song Careless Whisper instrumental accompanied the scenes. I think played by the street artist; I was so busy admiring the most iconic monument. It was perfect, and I wish to revisit France and also London.

I was back in Malaysia on 31 August and the next day was the Eid al-Adha celebration. I have a cold again. Unfortunately, I already saw a panel Doctor and told him that I need to be well before flying to Europe. Guess what the whole trip I was coughing, and my voice sounds quite bad. Currently, I’m in the process of recovering from the cold, and I learned from my mistake that it is better to see a private Doctor for fast and good medicines instead of seeing the panel physicians.

Atomic Blonde (2017)

Last night I watched Atomic Blonde. Sofia Boutella is the reason I watch the film in the cinema.

I was disappointed because most of her scenes were cut out in Malaysia cinemas because of the lesbian elements. The film looks awkward because Lorraine and Delphine’s relationship is one of the essential element in that movie.

The film is good, but I was distracted by the cut out scenes. I need to watch that movie again without any censorship. I wish I can enjoy watching any movies in cinema without any censorship.

War for the Planet of the Apes (2017)

Last night I watched the War for the Planet of the Apes, and I enjoyed watching the movie. While waiting for the film to start, I noticed most of the viewer are adults and young adults not so much. While watching the film, someone snored quite loud, and at first, I thought it was part of the sound effects. Haha… I believe that person fall asleep because of the movie quite slow and lack of action and dialogues.

As for me, I like the storyline. There are sad moments and not too many dialogues for the characters, but the movie also has fun moments with “Bad Ape”. I like the Bad Ape character, his scenes are enjoyable, and the fun parts are suitable for the flow of the story. Overall I am satisfied with the movie even though it has a sad ending.

Unboxing Ahmanet and The Mummy Funko Pop

AHMANET N THE MUMMY FUNKO.jpgahmanet n the mummy FUNKO OOB

 

I was so happy finally to get my Funko Pop Ahmanet and the Mummy. Those boxes damaged a bit after a long journey from the United States of America. But, I don’t mind as long as the content is good. I’m still grateful because those cute figures still manage to safe and sound arrive.

I’m living in Malaysia, and quite far from the big city so most of the time I will just order things through online. The excellent of the internet. But ordering from the web also has cons, I have bad experiences with missing or damaged goods. At one time, I did order laser pointer for my class, and the so call irresponsible postman did not put the parcel inside the postbox, and unfortunately, it was raining that day, and my parents did not realise the package arrives for how many days. So you can guess the rest of the story.

No used to complain because they just take the case without any compensation. Oh… I wish I can share my bad experience regarding my academic books. It is a waste of time trying to explain the meaning of art to that person who does not understand or even bother to read the contents. I’m so pissed off with that person claiming the content too obscene for education purposes!

In Malaysia; I cannot directly write or say bad things freely without any consequences. So that is why I’m grateful whenever I do get my stuff safe, and sound arrives without any fuss.

Unboxing Mafex: The Joker Suits Version

I am happy to receive another action figures that I pre-ordered from Play-Asia. For this figure, I waited for almost a year to get this Joker suits version.

Supposedly I get the figure earlier because I choose Fedex for the shipment to make sure my figure is safe and not easily be stolen and especially when I’m not around to pick up at the office since it was Raya holidays.

Overall I’m happy with every purchase made from Mafex because of the action figures quality, and the price is still affordable for a collector like me.
