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.

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?

Review: The Raid: Redemption

Usually, there’s a formula, in typical Hollywood action movies. The heroes will walk (without afraid of being shot!) through a gate, in slow motion stares directly at you.They will be wearing heavy armor outfit, with their shining muscles, and carrying an array of huge automatic guns and ammo – ready to start some chaos.

To get your adrenaline pumped, their arsenals are usually these: sculpted bodies, loud boom, fast and then super slow motion fest, huge explosion, flashy expensive CGI and don’t forget; throw in a damsel in distress, with a tight and revealing outfit.

Team Bad ass Cops.

The formula is getting boring, but thankfully – you’ll find none of that in The Raid.

Review: 1/100 Master Grade GN-0000-GNR-010 – OO Raiser

Here it is, another Gundam review.

I went to Jakarta’s 8th Toys and Comic Fair, earlier this month. The plan was to get my hand on an Ultimate FX lightsaber (The plastic version of FX lightsabers). Alas, Hasbro’s stand was lame, and didn’t have anything that closely resembles a proper lightsaber.
Tried to see the LED effect, using flash light from a cell phone.
So I switched my attention to get a Gundam Model Kit to build.  And I chose to raise the bar a bit, rather than looking for the new release of RG. I went for an MG GN-0000-GNR-010 OO Raiser. It cost me around 700K, a bit expensive, I know. Continue reading “Review: 1/100 Master Grade GN-0000-GNR-010 – OO Raiser”

Review: 1/144 Real Grade ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam

So, I got a package yesterday. It contain the 1/144 Real Grade ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam, as a birthday present from @sitqom and @titisadinda (Thank you guys!). By the way, the birthday is way over, but it’s totally okay if one of you would like to send me another Gunpla. The MG series will do just fine!

Freshly delivered! 1/144 Real Grade ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam

I noticed several changes in the package. Particularly the decal section. They are now separated into two parts, the white number decal, and the black one. It definitely help with the decal hell, upon completing this model.
