Guess who’s older!

Tuesday, November 11, 2008 at 2:03 am (... in television, The movie I watch) (, , , , , , )

 

Guess who's older!Once my friend wrote on Plurk “I’m 26 now. Am I old?”. I answered “I’m 26 also. But I believe old is depend on your clothes choices.” When I told it to my BF, he laughed at me and told me how mean I was. I don’t understand, I just try to be honest. In fact, nobody believes that me and my friend is at the same age, everybody think she’s older than me, and I insist that’s because of my style.

Thinking about this, luckily I just watched this show in e-entertainment called “Guess who’s older!”. On the show, people on the street were asked question “Who do you think is older? Celebrity A or Celebrity B?”. Mostly answer it incorrectly.

Most people sure Angelina Jolie is lot older than Jennifer Aniston, when in fact she’s 6 years younger. They think Britney Spears is older than Jessica Alba, when in fact they’re at the same age. And They briefly answer that Ali Lohan is older than Selina Gomez. They swear that Ali is at least 17 years old, and Selina isn’t older than 15 years old. The fact is: Ali Lohan is still 14 years old, while Selina is 16 years old.

Why some person looks older than the other? And I was right. It (was said on the show) is because your style, and plus your life style. The choices of fashion style, parties, kids, unhealthy lifestyle, tired and stressful conditions definitey make people looks older. It’s proven by Angelina (kids & stressful lifestyle), Britney (stress, party & kids) and Ali (Style & party). But I don’t like to blame environment for my old looks. I think (beside the choices of style, of course 😛 ) it’s all about you. If you want to look older, so people treat you like older people, then you’ll look older than person who begging for childish looks. So, don’t complain!!!

The World Ugliest Dog Contest

Monday, November 3, 2008 at 1:32 am (... in television, The movie I watch) (, , )

 

Each year, American held the event ‘The world ugliest dog contest’.  The competition is simple, divided into 2 classes, pure breed and mix breed (mutt). The winner from each class, compete to get the second round winner. The second round winner, compete the past winner to get the real winner.

The show I watched in Animal Planet Channel is 2006 championship. The winner is pure-bred Chinese Crested named Archie. If they said ugly, then its meant ugly. None of the dog that I’ve ever seen in my life is close to the ugliness shown in the show. For me, Archie the winner, looks like mix-breed of hairless fat toy dog, after bath in the water gremlins* and gecko. She has no front teeth, makes her tongue always stuck out of her mouth, causing drooling all the time (and all over the place, too). The latest news mentioned that Archie is still The World’s Ugliest Dog until now on.

 

Think you can stand Archie looks? please take a look at the picture of Sam, the king of the show. Sam won the competition 3 times in a row. He passed away on September 2006. To be honest, just to look at the picture could make me have a nightmare.

 

The funny thing is, was said that the number of candidates never been high. Not because the small number of the ugly dog. But, because the dog owner never think that their dog is ugly. Most of the candidates are forced by friends and family to join the competition. And all of them said “I know my dog is ugly because everybody said so. But for me, he/she is the best gift in my life”. So sweet. Suddenly, I looked at my dog, he’s curled sleeping in my blanket. My boyfriend always say that I have a very handsome dog. But I don’t really care. All I care about is “I already got the best gift in my life”.

 

*Gremlins: fictional character in 1984 movie “Gremlins”. The cute hairy little gremlin will spawn hairless ugly nasty green Gremlins if its becomes wet by water.

Mongol

Monday, November 3, 2008 at 1:19 am (... in theatre, The movie I watch) (, )

The early years history of Genghis Khan, before he took on the name. The biggest Khan (king) of mongolian tribe at the time. Genghis Khan changed the way mongolian live. He also teach mongolian war technique which lead them to conquer half of the world including China and Russia in 1206.

Story started with 9 years old Temudjin (Genghis Khan childhood’s name) went on journey with his father to seek for a wife. In the middle of journey, little Temudjin found his future wife, Borte. Unlike traditional mongolian culture, where male is the one who should choose his wife, Temudjin was chosen by Borte. One phrase from her “smart people came here (the village) for a wife. You should choose me Temudjin”, and he made up his mind to proposed her on the next day. The story goes, Temudjin’s father murdered by Chinese, His father’s trusted man betrayed and try to kill Temudjin to gain throne. On the run, only one thing on Temudjin mind. No, Its not revenge, it’s always about Borte. On the era, when mongolian women is less precious than a horse, Temudjin struggle to get to his wife again is something weird. But in the end, family is something that lead him to get his first army, and later, conquer China.

This movie’s get nomination for best foreign language movie. Use mostly Mongolian language (I’m not really sure what language they use, but I’m sure it’s not one of the chinese languages), I really hate the fact that I have to read the subtitle to understand the movie and missed some really really beautiful panorama shoot in the movie. The plot move slowly but not boring, give chance for audience to enjoy mongolia savana and snow panorama, unique clothes and jewelry, and the most important, mongolia culture and way of life which detailed was explain perfectly in the script. All the actors and actress plays perfectly. I found no blooper in the movie. Only one thing really bother me, the transition from night (dark) to day (light) really hurt my eyes. Because the night scene is really dark, mostly in black, blue or red color, suddenly it change into bright white snow color. Hurt T.T .

At the end, It’s a very sweet love story. Genghis struggle to get Borte by his side (and fight for his faith). Borte struggle to keep her husband alive. Whatever it cost. Not cheesy, so boys can enjoy the movie too. Pretty good, right?!

Planet B-Boy

Monday, November 3, 2008 at 1:10 am (... in theatre, The movie I watch) (, )

Planet b-boy is a documentary story of 4 b-boy teams: USA, France, Japan and South Korea while they practice and involved in B-boy Battle of The Year. 

Personally, I really love documentary movie. And I should praise this one. The story order is really documentary type. Its started with “What is B-boy?”. Mmm, I just know that people who doing breakdance was called ‘b-boy’, and not ‘breaker’ as I always called them all this time. Continue with the history (not forget to mention the up-and-down) of breakdance, the history of b-boy Battle of The Year, and the strong competitors in the competition. The story goes to 4 strong competitors and their uniqueness. USA with the history, France with the power and speed, Japan with the idea and South Korea with the technique. Full with record of practice time, way of life and family moment, make me really get into the (reality) movie.

Not box-office type of movie, only a few people in theatre when I watched it. But, the theatre is full of “uuuu” and “aaa” noise, each time amazing technique shown in the theatre screen. And I have to tell you, there are so many breakdance techniques that I’ve never seen it before, and I will never ever believe that human being can do such technique unless I see it by my own eyes. I believe each people in theatre that night, somewhere in their mind, making plan to go see b-boy Battle of The Year sometimes in their life, as I do.

So, what the best thing about the movie? Something that makes me loves documentary movie. Feel sad when the subject’s cry, feel happy when the the subject’s smile, feel beaten when one competitor lose and feel the celebration when the other competitor cheering their winning. 😀

Watching the Detectives

Monday, October 13, 2008 at 11:05 am (... in DVD, The movie I watch) (, , , )

Romantic comedy movie about movie geek and boring phobia girl. …

Don’t really know what else to say. It’s romantic comedy, simple love story, and happy ending definitely. Neil is movie geek obsessed with detective role. He loves to put his girlfriend in movie re-creation situation, while watching her from far away. He will dumped her right away if she don’t act as the actress on the movie. One day, here comes violet, over-the-top personality and weird fashion style. Neil fall in love at the first sight, first dinner and goodnight kiss. Until he found out, that Violet is too unpredictable. She put him on movie like situation, just like he does to all his past girlfriend. And, he can’t stand it. uh oh.

Watching The Detectives is festival movie. Supposed to be in theatre on Valentine, but straight right to DVD. My first reason to watch it because of Cillian Murphy plays the main role (^O^) . The movie shot only took place in about 3 area, Neil store, Violet neighbourhood, here and there in some anonymous town. Hm, so festival movie type. Actually, this movie have very good detail. Neil is obsessed with old (black-and-white) movie, so take a look at his register cash machine and his office, so old fashion look. Violet unpredictable over-the-top personality showed by the way she dressed, her furniture-less home and big “doraemon* pocket” bag (because she has soooo many weird things on her big bag).

Unfortunately, this movie is not as funny as it has to be. The jokes are in the conversation, which said with serious gesture (?) I need to watch it twice to really get the joke. The ‘worst’ thing in the movie: The actor and actress plays really good, make me wanna punch Lucy Liu and scream “ He’s (Cillian Murphy) mine!!”

*Doraemon: Fictional robotic cat character in Manga (and later, Anime) series by Fujiko F. Fujio. Doraemon has a large pocket from which he produces many gadgets from the future. The pocket is called yojigen-pocket, or 4 dimension pocket.
