Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows

Synopsis: Guy Ritchie helms a new action-packed adventure in this sequel that follows the world's most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.), and his long-time trusted associate, Dr. Watson (Jude Law). This time around, the duo take on their arch-nemesis, the criminal genius Moriarty (Jared Harris), with the help of Holmes' older brother Mycroft (Stephen Fry) and a fortune-teller called Sim (Noomi Rapace).

A brilliant masterpiece that fits actions, humor and suspense all together in a movie. I must admit, if not for Robert Downey Jr, no other actor will have the ability to pull what the movie demands of Sherlock Holmes off. I greatly enjoyed the whole 2 hour in the theatre. From laughing my heads off Holmes stupidity, to watching him battle enemies in intense close combat and gun fights, and not to mention too the interesting matrix style great escape from artillery shots. I highly recommend this movie for the coming holiday season!

After 4 years, what are the chances to meet again on a particular date (20-Dec-11), at a particular shop (GAP), at a particular place (JB Prenium Outlet) and at a particular country (Malaysia)? Really miss the days back at the point!!

New Year's Eve

Synopsis: Following in the footsteps of 2010's "Valentine's Day", New Year's Eve is set in New York and features an ensemble cast whose characters' lives are intertwined over the course of the final day of the year. [Source: Yahoo! Singapore Movies]
At first glace, I really did not have high expectation for this movie. Seeing the movie title, my head has already dismiss it as "just another crappy movie making use of this festive occasion". However, unexpectedly, the movie turn out to be rather fine. Heart warming and touching were some of the words that I can use to describe it. Through a series of unrelated individual lives, it goes to show what people can do to make up to each other over the wrongs that they might have done, or to fulfill one's wishes before the year is over. Overall, quite a nice movie to watch as we celebrate the year's end.

Puss In Boots

Synopsis: "Puss in Boots", is a 3D animated adventure film produced by DreamWorks Animation, the makers of the "Shrek" series. Directed by Chris Miller ("Shrek the Third"), and produced by Guillermo del Toro ("Splice", "Blade II", "Pan's Labyrinth"), the feature stars Antonio Banderas as Puss and Salma Hayek as the love interest, Kitty. The film is based on and follows the character of "Puss in Boots" from "Shrek" and his adventures before his first appearance in 2004's "Shrek 2". The prequel's story centers on the swashbuckling cat and how he comes to meet Shrek and his friends, while introducing its colorful new characters. [Source: Yahoo! Singapore Movies]
This animated film is not as great as it seems. Though the maker tried to be creative, such as introducing cats dancing in a dance fight, but there are pockets of film here and there which I feel are quite empty. The film started off well, introducing Puss in Boots and tried to build up its life story. But the scenes with humpy dumpy and its revenge on Puss didn't quite gel with me. Overall, I do not recommend this film, especially to kids.

Finally, they have started the load test and foundation pile bore. Think this will go on for about 2 months, given the bad weather recently. I hope they can start the Lego sooner.

Builder is Straits Construction, I wonder how is their reputation in the market?

6th Year Anniversary

Time flies and this is already the sixth year that this blog is alive. As we transit from study to working life, most of us will not have the time or energy to maintain our blog like what we used to do in school, eventually leading to the death of our friend's blogs. Well, coming to the new year, I hope this blog will not be joining the RIP list. I have also just embarked on a journey back to school again. I hope everything will goes well for the next 2 years. And... I think that is all for now:

Some Statistic:
Page Count: 43742 +3959
Year on Year increase: -394 -9.05%

Haha, readership has dropped from the day that we graduate from school. Working life really do keeps us busy and sap of energy....

Ko starts pursuing Shen but Shen remains hesitant. [Source: Yahoo! Singapore Movies]
A movie bringing back the memories of our past school days and the silly things that we are used to doing. I couldn't help but think that how fast time has flown by me. Secondary school, the best time of my study life just seems like yesterday, but in truth, 10+ years has already gone by. The movie itself is humorous, light hearted, though some of the scenes depicted in the movie are a bit extreme. I feel a bit sad that the ending didn't come out the way I thought, but well, that is how real life is. Good acting, good plot, a worthwhile movie to watch.
