Since Jurassic Park made its debut in 1993, the movie industry has evolved to make use of technology to create films such as Lord of the Rings and Avatar.
Film maker, Steven Spielberg said he wanted to make use of animation to get as close to the characters that (Herge) invented and not characters that we would then reinvent based on big names, big movie stars. Twenty years later, he is reworking on a new “Jurassic Park” movie, teeth sharpened, and not for the popcorn.
He did not mention when the film is expected to be released, but I foresee that would be at least next year.
I was flipping through the LifeStyle section of the Newspaper today to check out one of the latest movies, X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Normally, I would prefer to watch at the Cathay cinema, because as a UOB Credit Card holder, I get to enjoy discounted movies. Whilst I see a lot of other cinemas, e.g. Golden Village, Shaw Organisation, etc., showing the latest release of Wolverine, I do not see it being shown on Cathay. What is going on?
Perhaps, I’ll just have to wait for another weekend to catch the show. Oh, did I mention it was Labour Day last Friday? I had quite a relaxing long weekend. Practically, I had a marathon mahjong session on Saturday. It was a winning kill.
The Magic Hour (2008)
I caught this movie on board a flight from Singapore to Manchester three weeks ago, and I found this extremely hilariously! The plot was simple, but the beginning phase was a little slow, but as the curtain (film) unveiled, it began to throw out the comedy side of the film. The synopsis of the film is as follow.
Peter Jackson‘s movie premiere, King Kong, is showing on television this evening. It has been split into 2 parts; the first to be shown at 7:30pm, the second at 9:30pm at +8hrs GMT. I recalled watching this film some time back and it was pretty incredible, knowing that Peter Jackson has directed a successful The Lords of the Rings trilogy, this film must be something up to expectation.
Get Smart (2007)
Watching the movie, Get Smart, is almost like watching James Bond 007, albeit that it is more of a comedy form rather than full action pack with explosives and near misses. On the other hand, it’s not entirely comedy, as compared to Austin Powers!
Starring Steve Carell, co-hosting with Anne Hathaway, the agent-wannabe has always dreamt of becoming a true real agent who would want to enjoy life out in the field. However, because he is so good at what he’s doing, he was denied promotion. (Imagine how cruel life may be, but it does happen in our practical world)
The first 15 minutes of the show is kind of boring; however, as soon as the audience are beginning to wonder if they have paid a good price for the show, the excitement commenced. It started with a shake on city, just like an earthquake.
Fred Claus (2007)
When the story began, it claimed that the film is going to be a story unlike others and has never been heard before. True enough, the storyline is completely different from what I originally interpreted. The beginning was definitely out of the blue. It was probably one of the good film to catch just before Christmas starts in a couple of days’ time (By the way, I can’t remember when I catch this film; either late last month or early this month).
Volcano High (2001)
Over the last several months, I have not exactly a TV nor a movie addict. However, as I was flipping through the newspaper last night, a particular show caught my eyes – Volcano High. Unlike previous film reviews, e.g. Secret, Rush Hour 3 and 881, Volcano High is not the latest show in cinema. Moreover, this is a Korean film about violence in a Korean High school.
The main story surrounds the students of Volcano High, a martial arts school and the secret manuscript, which brought about the school clubs attempting to beat each other in order to obtain the sacred skills. The main cast is a student, Kim Kyeong-su, who possesses supernatural power, enrolled into Volcano High as his ninth school, after being expelled from the previous colleges.
