Step Up 3

Synopsis: New York's intense street dancing underground comes alive in eye-popping Digital 3D in the third installment of the "Step Up" franchise as the raw, passion-fuelled culture goes global. A tight-knit group of street dancers, including Luke (Rick Malambri) and Natalie (Sharni Vinson), team up with NYU freshman Moose (Adam Sevani), and find themselves pitted against the world's best breakdancers in a high-stakes showdown that will change their lives forever.

In summary, if hip-hop and break dance is the thing for you, then you will love this movie! For the entire 108 minutes, break dancing took up almost 50% of the movie, with the occasional ballroom and musical intervals in between. The ending choreography is something creative, using LED lights to create some visual effects. That is considered a little thumb up for the director. For me, I think I suffered a little break dance overdose. So, if you are a fan of breakdance, go for this movie!

Phua Chu Kang The Movie

Synopsis: The plot revolves around Phua Chu Kang (Gurmit Singth) being persuaded by his mother Ah Ma (Neo Swee Lin) to bid for a contract to renovate the Heaven Can Wait old folk's home owned by the unscrupulous Lim Lau Pek (Henry Thia). Although he is not sure why Ah Ma wants so badly for him to get the job, he agrees to do it anyway when he finds out that his arch-rival Frankie Foo (Lim Kay Siu) is also bidding for the same contract.

Don't Play Play!! Haha, it is still a joy to watch Phua Chu Kang again all these years, going about his usual nonsense. The length of the movie is just right, because any longer will make the movie a drag. Don't go in with high expectation though, as this movie is not really that good. But if you are looking for an evening to unwind yourself, why not try this movie for a few laugh?

Synopsis: Angelina Jolie plays Evelyn Salt, a CIA officer who swore an oath to duty, honour, and country. When she is accused by a defector of being a Russian sleeper spy, Salt goes on the run to clear her name and ultimately prove she is a patriot. Using all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative, she must elude capture and protect her husband or the world's most powerful forces will erase any trace of her existence.

Who exactly is Salt? Is she with the Russian or the American? The movie in itself is pretty confusing, not to mention that it doesn't have a beginning or ending to start with. Just when the movie is trying to portray that she is innocent, it turns out the other way round, and just as suddenly, the table is turned again. The reason? Because of the love for her husband. But then, with the kind of brain washing and drilling that she had when she was a child, this doesn't really make sense. Setting this aside, the movie in general is a no brainer. Just sit back and enjoy the fast pace action.
