Movie Review: Big Hero 6



My friends have been saying "You got to watch this, it's awesome!" and such. Not gonna lie, it is one of the best animation movie but I guess my friend's over-the-top bragging have made me put too much expectation before actually watching the movie. First of all, it's kind of cliche linking Japanese with super brain kids and robotics but I'll accept that anyway. Baymax is cute and the idea of a nursing robot is very good but on the realistic part, it just gonna make people lose jobs in the future haha I don't have much to say because after all, it is an animation movie where anything is possible               ( ̄ー ̄)  Hiro's brother is such a sweetheart and I just can't accept that he died such on the early part of the movie. Come onnn, let me enjoy the brotherly love a little bit more (`へ´*)ノ  One thing though, at the end, I thought they were gonna continue living a quiet life as robotics students as they caught the bad guy and all but it ended up they want to continue being superheros with their scientific weapons. For once, I thought the ending would be different from other animation superhero movies but I guess not. But still, it was a totally worth-watching movie as I did have few mood changes from laughing out loud to suspense to aww-ing and to crying.

Movie Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1



I was so excited to watch this movie because I have been following Hunger Games since the first movie and especially when (2nd movie's name) ended on a really suspenseful note. This movie is clearly only focusing on Katniss only. Like seriously, I bet we can count how many times Peeta actually appeared on the screen. I'm a bit disappointed on this because you know, I am such a fangirl of Peeta (︶︹︺) And I am so mad at Katniss for kissing Gale. I mean, what?! You have been giving hope for him when you guys were living in District 12, then you left him heartbroken with Peeta, then you kissed him when Peeta's not around. Oh no, girl, that is so wrong ( ಠ ಠ ) I was like basically scolding her in the cinema (sorry for the people sitting behind me). On more thing, they didn't show how the guys actually saved the victors. They realized Capitol knew about them coming and the connection got cut off and the next thing, the victors are already in District 13. Really? I mean, that is the best part. You should have shown how heroic they was. Overall, the movie's progress is too short. I am pretty sure I was in the cinema for almost 3 hours but they still didn't win the revolutionary or Peeta have recovered or they have the upper hand in the game, etc. In my opinion, they must have been some unnecessary scenes because when it ends I was like "That's it?". These producers totally know how to make money and force us to watch the next movie, hah.

Movie Review: Interstellar



I went to Sunway Pyramid with my friends last Friday and we took quite a time to decide which movie to watch (?・・) Among the choices was Ouija (I hate horror movies), Big Hero 6 (they don't want to watch an animation), Fury (a war movie.. something like my mom would like) so we ended up buying tickets for Interstellar, especially after hearing that this movie got a 9/10 rating according to IMDb.

In short, the movie was about the humans are searching for another habitable planet to replace Earth. The hero is the only one who have the skills to drive a spaceship so he had to choose whether to stay with his kids or to save the human race. I won't say much about the movie because then it would be a spoiler (>.<) but instead, two things that I noticed about this movie.

First of all, this movie used too much physics terms that even me, who was a pure science major in school had a hard time understanding (>o<;;) When the astronauts was talking to each other about the problems they are facing, I could only frown and goes "What the heck they are talking about?" So yeah, there are parts of the movie where normal people could not understand (or I was the one who is ignorance)  |_・)

Second, the significant of the hero's son character. The movie is mainly focusing on his younger daughter because his daughter turned out to be a genius just like him while the son is...well, show a great potential to be a farmer. He just appeared at the start of movie, before Cooper went to the space. The middle, where Murph visited him at their old house and that's the end. There was also no ending to his character. "That's it? That's the end? What happened to the brother?" Come on, just because he was not as smart as Murph, it's not okay for you to discriminate him and I address this to the writer of the movie  (¬_¬)

But overall, I have to say this movie is one of the best movie I have watched and I did enjoy every minute of it! You cannot miss any moment or you won't understand the story, so make sure you have high focus before entering the cinema  (*^▽^*)
