Review: Paddington (2014)

Mrs. Brown: Perhaps you’d like an English name?
Paddington: An English name?
Mrs. Brown: Paddington!
Paddington: Paddington? I like it!

Jadi, saya termasuk beruntung karena dapat tugas jadi perwakilan MovieXplorers buat media screening Paddington di Kemang Village XXI (yang kebetulan cuma 5 menit dari rumah). Masuk ke dalam dengan harapan yang biasa-biasa saja, tapi keluar theater dengan senyum lebar. Hehehe.

Stop Merokok (lagi)

Biar gue jelaskan di awal, bahwa gue bukan quitter yang lantas jadi snob. Each to his own. Dan blog ini gue tulis khusus buat orang yang mau/sedang berhenti merokok. Gue tau kok “enaknya” merokok. Gue merokok lebih dari 15 tahun. Jadi gue ga akan nguliahin orang, betapa berbahayanya rokok, atau betapa perokok merampas hak-hak orang yang ga merokok. You smokers know the danger, but you choose to ignore it ;) Continue reading Stop Merokok (lagi)

Winning Eleven: Best movies 2012

It’s almost a new year, and my plan to write at least one entry per month is ruined. No particular reason, other than I’ve got nothing interesting to write. As simple as that.

Review: The Dark Knight Rises

I think, I’ve read enough Batman comics – to know a thing or two about the character. Let me be clear. If you’re a fan of Batman in the movie, then you probably disappointed in the lack of action scenes. But if you’re a fan of the comic, then like me, you’d think this movie rocks.

People complaining about the lack of action, but this Bruce Wayne have not picked up his gadgets in 8 years. And I think that’s what the movie’s focus. This is not about the playboy millionaire façade. This is the real Bruce Wayne. We already have TDK as an installment who focused on the villain (The Joker). And a hero that immediately can kick asses? That wouldn’t be realistic no?
