So far...

It's been pretty busy times lately, however will still find time to relax and what other way than to hit the cinemas or dvds or blu rays. Over the past weeks, there were quite a few misses than hits, for example...The Last Airbender...letdown, Salt...ain't that salty! Ong Bak 3...fell flat.

Shutter Island, Inception and Unthinkable stood out, and it's all about the story. It's really back to the story and use technology to enhance it and not the other way around. Looking forward to couple of HK films coming out soon, and hopefully they will turn out alright.

Blu Ray : Thumbs Up!

VHS - VCD - DVD - HD DVD - Blu Ray...what can I say...evolution! The excitement of watching a movie are more than just storyline, cast, director but the total experience! My first Blu Ray was 2012 and the clarity & detail just blew my eyes. It just brings the viewing pleasure to another pleasure.

If you haven't experience it, it's never too late. Start saving!!!

TV Series

Over the few months, I have been watching quite a bit of TV series (US). Here are a few to share, Lie To Me...great show about a group of deception specialist (lie expert), then Trauma...about paramedics, followed by Flash Forward...whereby the whole world stopped for about 2 minutes, then chaos followed, and another Fringe (Season 2)...X-Files meets CSI meets Warehouse and lastly Harper's Island...13 weeks, 25 suspects, 1 killer.

So, do check those out!

CNY Blockbuster 2010

Gong Xi Fa Cai! Let's hope the year of the tiger brings all goodness and peace to mankind. What a great time to catch up with the HK films, since they don't really have many great films throughout.

Nevertheless, I managed to catch 3 films all though CNY...14 Blades, Little Big Soldier and True Legend.

Time flies, we're in 2010 now and lots of great TV and Movies awaits us. As for TV, lets see if there will be any new wave format - as we're all quite tire of reality series. After "Fringe" season 1, I have been patiently waiting for season 2, and while waiting, I stumbled across "Warehouse 13". It's not too bad, but not as complex as "Fringe", but however does provide some interesting plots...secret agents retrieving ancient artifacts with powers.

Also there is another similar genre titled "Flash Forward" which I am itching to see as the plot sounds really interesting. While waiting for those titles, I turned to "Lie To Me", a series about detecting lying. A very human story, with amazing storytelling and detecting lying techniques.

As for the movies, "2012" seems a not-to-miss blockbuster, but I missed it, but planning on getting the Blu-ray. Ending 2009 on a high-note was not missing "Avatar", an amazing movie, get visuals and simple story. The 3D was truly amazing and best experience so far.

As for the Asian cinema, "Bodyguards & Assassins" wasn't a bad flick, as compared to the highly anticipating sequel "The Storm Warriors". There will be a few surprises coming soon in 2010, do watch for it.
