A series of Movie Reviews


The best movie I’ve seen this year – creative, intelligent and well-developed. I had really high expectations when I walked into the cinema due to good reviews from friends around me. And it did not let me down. It’s a three-hour-movie that leaves you wondering with an open ending (to me, at least). And may I say that Joseph Gordon-Levitt was so cool. =)

Shutter Island

Predictable twist at the ending. But overall, it's worth spending two hours to watch it. Not a bad movie. It's a little boring generally as there were more talking than action. And I didn't like it that the movie constantly try to scare its audience with disturbing scenes which I find not so disturbing after all. I mean, it's a movie about mentally-disturbed people I strongly expect something better than this.

The Descent Part 2

Blood, blood, blood, and more blood. There's nothing else to say, except that I enjoyed The Descent Part 1 better.

It was a hell of a disappointment. The first 30 minutes of the movie was great. The more I watched it the more I had high expectations for it. Maybe my expectations went too high though. And Liam Neeson's acting was pretty unconvincing to me.


Hollywood’s pathetic struggle to show that they can still produce movies with creative storyline, romance, action all in one. What they didn’t know is that creative and lame is just a thin line away. As the movie rolled on all I could think about was how lame and how illogical it was. Anyone who has watched it please explain to me:
1. Why the government just let the Union do all the killings?
2. Even when the bank approves a loan they make sure people can pay it back. Why would the Union sell their products to people who can’t afford it, and then take the product back, just to sell it as a second hand product?
3. Are the repomen really qualified to do a surgeon’s job?
I don’t believe I’ve given out any spoilers but even if I did it wouldn’t matter. Because the movie is so shitty, it’s not worth wasting your time.

Another simple recipe for people who can't cook, like me. =)

First take a look at the result...

Up close...
1. Rice (duh!)
2. Egg (duh!)
3. Salted carrots
4. Garlic
5. Onion

1. Mince the garlic and onion.
2. Clean the salted carrots.
3. Have the eggs beaten and add salt into it.
4. Mix thoroughly the rice into the beaten egg.
5. Heat the cooking oil in a wok. When the oil is shimmering and almost smoking add the garlic and stir-fry for 3 to 4 minutes, followed by the onion and salted carrots.
6. Stir-fry for a few minutes before adding the rice.
7. Stir-fry until the rice look dry.
8. Ready to be served. =)

I can't believe it's been such a long time since I've updated. Just want to tell my followers (though I don't believe there are many) and fellow bloggers (if you're reading this) that I'm still alive, and I'm just waiting for some inspiration to blog. I don't usually force myself to blog so when I don't feel like blogging, I just don't. Sometimes I simply run out of ideas and motivation to maintain thE gEOgrAphicAlly blind. And when that happens, I lay low for a while trying to settle my mind. This is not the first time it happens. Anyway, to those who are interested to actually stop by and read the words on thE gEOgrAphicAlly blind, I thank you and ask you to patiently give me some time and space. I can't promise when but I promise I'll be back, when I'm ready. Till then.

PS: Attaching a recent photo of my Coal Ball and Mao Mao (Cat Cat) on my bed. When I'm away from blogging I play with them. =)
