One of my favourite things to do is watching movies. In the past, Nick and I would watch movies almost every time we meet – including those random ones .__.
Now I’m rather selective.. My FAVOURITE genre is gore/horror/zombie (Saw, The Conjuring, Dawn of the Dead), followed closely by action/thriller (X-Men, The Hunger Games, Divergent, The Avengers, I Saw The Devil) then fantasy (The Hobbit, LOTR, Harry Potter, Star Wars etc).
There aren’t any good horror movies recently which is a pity. I ABHOR lame horror movies. The last that I really enjoyed was probably The Conjuring. Annabelle didn’t make it sorry. D: It’s also been freaking long since a fantastic zombie film was made.. The one that I mentioned, Dawn of the Dead, was from goddamn 2004 which shows that there hasn’t been impressive zombie films since that time. Yes I was 12 in 2004 and watching such shows hehehe
I also don’t watch (or crave to watch) comedies anymore. The best comedy film to me will always be White Chicks.. I swear I can memorise the movie lines LOL. The recent comedies (that I’ve watched) didn’t leave an impression on me and I realised I’m getting irked by that genre.. Some are totally not funny and it’s a waste of money..
Anyways. I watched Kingsman: The Secret Service recently and IT. WAS. AMAZING. Thanks to Nick for suggesting to watch if not I wouldn’t have done so.
It’s been quite awhile since a movie has blown my mind like that, and unexpectedly, too. (The Hobbit not counted cos I alr loved it before I watched hahaha)
It’s hard for me to give a review that justifies the movie’s awesomeness – you have to watch it. It’s an action movie with lots of slick fighting movies and hot British accents involved. I have a feeling there will be sequels and I CAN’T WAIT! Oh, it’s M18 though. Probably due to the exposed butt :D :D
The male lead is a new eyecandy and he’s only 25 years old.. sorry too young for me but not bad. Hahahahah dunno what I’m talking about cos I just woke up and felt frustrated there aren’t any good horror movies recently hai
I also watched From Vegas To Macau II.. Y’know I really like all those HK actors that were in it but the movie made me feel sick. Cos it was brainless and stupid. I have had enough of these movies with slapstick comedy and stupid/unrealistic plots. It was suitable for CNY, but NONO for me, anymore.
I prefer movies like Interstellar. HAHA
Ah Boys to Men 3: Frogmen was alright. It performed exactly how I expected it to be.. To me, the most natural one was Lobang. I’m relieved the movie wasn’t too sad like the 2nd one. Which brings me to my next point…
I never watch sad movies. ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT INVOLVE ANIMALS. (Hachiko/10 Promises to my Dog etc all I never watch) I hate crying and even more so in public. LOL.. I can’t remember, but the last sad film that left an impression was The Secret 不能說的秘密 by my darling. I cried.
I hate feeling sad (LOL who enjoys right), so it makes sense that I avoid movies of that genre.
Looking forward to Insurgent, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and STAR WARS! STAR WARS! DECEMBER 2015! I LOOK FORWARD TO IT MORE THAN MAI BIRTHDAY
