Caught the movie partially because it is part of the whole Avengers francise (Iron Man, Thor, Cap America)

Spent the movie looking out for easter eggs like when Stan Lee will appear, and if any references to the other characters of the Avengers will be made.

"Is that one of Stark's toys?" - to the Destroyer

"Hawk eye and Black Widow" - both made cameos

All in all, the movie was not really entertaining. The love story between Natalie and Thor seemed a little too contrived and haphardly stapled together into the plot, how the story keeps jumping between Asgard and Earth, led one to wonder if the writers could have done a better job.

No complaints though on the acting, special effects and CGI. Natalie Portman shows her stuff in being about to do a Black Swan, followed immediately by her role as a quirky scientist needing rescue in Thor.

Movie only to watch if you are fan boy like me.

Dear self,

Do not forget how you swallowed your pride this much to do this pupillage. You are destined for greater things.

17 Hours

A week's worth of 17-19 hour days does make you think about a lot of things.

Things u take for granted, like eating at home, or reading the paper.

People, and interactions.

Life and where you are headed.

I finally got it!

The thing is this. Because i don't respect the things that they do, everytime they ask me to do something, i'll gripe!

And my option is to find a job in an MNC like my old one! then no one will complain that i quit halfway!

Black Swan & King's Speech

I caught these 2 movies over the last 2 weekends. I could clearly see why it was beyond a shadow of doubt that Colin Firth and Natalie Portman were awarded the Oscars for their portrayals.
They had the most stunning performances and realistically turned into characters with very difficult and personal issues.
I mean, Colin's stuttttter and Natalie's psychosis? Wow.

As a film, the King's Speech was an unexpected feel good film. And the best supporting should have gone to the Doctor rather than Bale. And quite surprisingly, it was refreshing to see Helena Botham Carter in a non-gothic/crazy role.
U know what. I cannot think of a bad film that Colin Firth has made. Has he really risen to the ranks of Tom Hanks? =)

A review of this film can be summarised in 2 words.
Messed up.
It was intentionally drawn out, so that the audience can fully feel and appreciate the gradual regression of Natalie's sanity, and to get totally loss in what is real and what is not because of the visions of her mind.
Mila Kunis did well in her role as the counterbalance of reality and cause of ruin of Natalie's sanity, but honestly, that role did not stretch any of her acting chops.
But was it as traumatic as some audience said it was? Nope.

New Office

Just joined a new company.

Have you ever met some people that you know immediately that you will never be friends with?

Its not that you hate them or have a bad impression of them, but you know your characters will never match.

Worst situation is that you have to hang out with them for lunch. =(

Love And Other Drugs

This movie would have been less bearable if not for Anne Hathaway's t*ts.

Something was missing from the movie.

Yes, there was chemistry between the actors. But somehow, it didn't seem enough to make up for the plot holes and weak script.

Watch it for the t*ts. =)
