Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2 trailer

Who love Harry Potter?! The last part of this epic journey is coming to an end, I can just remember the first time I was watching this movie in the cinema. So here's the look of the first trailer of the 2nd part of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows. Excited?

Transformers:Dark of The Moon trailer

Here's the first look at the trailer of Transformers:Dark of The Moon. If you did not know already, Megan Fox was replace by Rosie Huntington, but from what I can gather from the trailer, she's pretty much has the same role as Megan Fox, being sexy and hot while having 2 or 3 lines in the movie. Anyway, from what I read, the movie is about a bunch of Cybertronian that was hidden in the moon, and the race to find it between the Autobot and the Decepticon. As you can probably see from the trailer, we know who won that race. So are you excited to watch this when it come out?

X-Men and Immortals trailer

Alright, there are 2 more movies, that I would love to watch, first of all is X-Men First Class. It's a prequel to the X-Men franchises. It tells the story of when Professor X first made the school for the gifted and were the first of the X-Men. In this time, he and Magneto were still friends. Enjoy the trailer.

The second movie, is Immortals. From the director of 300, it's another Greek myth movie. It tells of a story of one man that the Gods choose to be their hero, when an evil king declare war on all of humanity. Arm with mythical bow of the God, he and a band of heroes wage war with the king. Enjoy the trailer.

The white abyss

For the past few months, I have been staring into this empty white wall, but no more. NO MORE! At first I thought of just paint the wall with colour, either green or blue. However, I had an even more greater idea, one that came to me while I was staring blindly into the white abyss.

I am now announcing that I will embark on a mega project, one that I had the approval of my father. I will paste about a MILLIONS (well maybe not MILLIONS) pictures from my collections. It will be either epic, or well lame. Wait for it in the coming weeks. Adios!

Acer Iconia

This is an awesome news for those techy geek out there. Introducing Acer Iconia! It doesn't even looks like a laptop. It's a touchbook, a dual screen laptop with full touch interface. AMAZING!

This is something that I have always dream of. With this, you can watch video on top, and surf the internet on the bottom. If you miss the keyboard, don't worry, just rest both hands on the bottom screen, and virtual keyboard will pop out.

For more info on this, visit Acer website here. I don't when will it come here, but here's hoping it will come soon!

Love and Other Drugs

Love and Other Drugs is another film that I am able to watch and review.

So what's the film about? Starring Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal, it is a story of a drug salesman, who stumble upon the greatest drug ever known, the little blue pill or better known as Viagra. It is based on a non-fiction book of Hard Sell: The Evolution of A Viagra Salesman by Jamie Reidy.

For those that have no clue, Viagra is a drug that helps those with erectile dysfunction, but at first was not meant to. You can Wiki all about the drug there.

So the story is background on the 90's when Viagra was not found yet. The main character, Jamie (Jake Gyllenhaal) just lost his job at a music store after sleeping with his boss's girlfriends. (his kinda like a playboy). His wealthy brother helps him lay a job at Pfizer (the company that created Viagra). His job is to sell drugs made by the company and reach quota if he ever want to be big and move to better place.

During one of his "sales" he met Maggie (Anne Hathaway). He relentlessly ask Maggie for a date, when she finally agreed, he learns that she don't want a real relationship. This is because of Maggie's condition, she is diagnose with Parkinson. Although only at early stage, she has to coupe with a lot of drugs and struggle with all the symptoms. When Viagra was introduce it really put Jamie forward. Watching Maggie turn for the worse, he went on a crusade of finding a cure for Parkinson (which to this day hasn't been found yet), however this put stress on their relationship. Will Jamie stayed with her or will he just give up?

Now, the film is heavy enough, although there are some elements of humour, the film will make you stuck on your sit for 2 hours. I can't really tell if this is the best acting from Anne, but it is clearly a leap from Jake Gyllenhaal. In the film, you can see topless Anne Hathaway, but I'm sure it will get censored here, so don't worry, hehe.

Another thing about this film is the change of focus, at one time it focus on the drug sales, then on the couple problems, then again to the drugs. This may not be suitable if you find yourself looking for a good old romantic film. There are critical review about this movie, but I love that the movie explore all the other aspects of that time. It is said, that the author of the book, didn't put all the sex and romantic interest because he's afraid his mother would read them..aww.

I give this film a solid 3.5/5 stars, if you want to see somewhat heavy drama, watch this film.

The Adjustment Bureau

Another film that I am lucky enough to watch. The Adjustment Bureau is a film that is pretty intense and weirdly kind of way. Starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt the film is about fate, event, and free will.

The film was loosely based on Phillip K. Dick's short story, call Adjustment Team. It tells a story about a young and upcoming senate candidate (played by Matt Damon) that is on his way of becoming the greatest man in the US. However, he lost the first campaign he entered, but met a woman (played by Emily Blunt) that captivated his heart from the first time they met. What he didn't know is that, it is all part of the plan.

The plan that was controlled by a group of people known as The Adjustment Bureau. The Adjustment Bureau is the people that enforce the plan of all the human on earth, they are kinda like the angel. They act according to the plan that was written by The Chairman, perhaps God himself.

Matt Damon plan deviate when one of his caseworkers fail to put him in the right path, that somehow by chance he meet the Emily again in a bus. This creates ripple effect that will lead to greater consequences and the chase for a free will. For one, Matt learns about the bureau, but was warned not to tell anyone, or they will mash his brain up.

The bureau will do absolutely everything to stop Matt from ever meeting with Emily again, but again by chance he did. Now the bureau are out to pull them apart, and stop them from ever falling in love. Will they succeed or will Matt perseverance kept the love alive?

I don't know where to categorize this film, Wiki categorize it as a romantic science fiction thriller, I gonna go with that. I'm gonna give this a solid 3/5 stars.

No Strings Attached

Here's another film review. No Strings Attached is starred by Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher, is a film about modern day romantic comedy of two long friends that decided to have casual sex, without all the feelings and talking and especially without falling for each other, kinda like friends with benefit.

The film is based on screenplay by Elizabeth Meriwether, titled Friends With Benefit. Ivan Reitman, the director, told the press that he noticed how easy teenagers nowadays to have casual sex without the emotion.

This film isn't all about sex, the film doesn't even show nudity (that much). There are other things that the film explore, mostly on the emotional side of this kind of relationship. One does wonder, if we can keep being friends, after all that. The twist in this film is that the guy is the one that developed the feelings and brave enough to confess, however the girl got scared and run away.

Although I have to say, this is not the best we've seen from Natalie, it does suit Ashton really well. If you knew how he is from all his previous film, you would know about his acting in films. But, if you want to see Natalie's crazier side, you can see it here.

All and all, if you like some light romantic, heart-warming, sexy, and funny film, it is recommended, especially on your boring Sunday afternoon with the one you love. A solid 3/5 stars from me.
