And I thought the basketball tricks on 17 Again were fake.

I was watching The Ellen DeGeneres Show the other day and I could not help but to video Zac Efron doing all these stunts despite knowing how bad the quality will turn out. So pardon the poor quality, and be impressed as I am when you see Efron do a spin on his pinky finger.

 

 

This is the basketball trick from 17 Again that I could not believe intially. It is also my most favourite scene in the movie. Even though it seems like they are just tricks, each movement actually paints the picture of the word that he says. Pretty cool eh?

I love Jamie Cullum’s performances. So frank, so honest, and does not hold back in his interpretations. The little details he does in his movement sets people to desire to see more. Together with his amazing talents, the show put together will get you spellbinding.

This show really sets one thinking about the root of human behaviour and reaction to situations. Batman wondered why Joker could not stop creating chaos in the city. Alfred answered that the root of his behaviour was simply his interest in dynamite and explosion. In another scene of the three ships having to make a life-and-death decision, whether to blow up the other boats in order to survive by being the last one standing, creates a suspense which is similar to watching “Saw”. This scene sets you thinking about the final decision each boat would make and why did they not choose the other.

 

Another thing on my mind surfaced from Harvey’s transition to Two-Face. Initially Harvey was a respectable man in the city. Picture this as a man being a strong believer of Christ. But when situation happens (like the death of Rachel, woman of Harvey’s life), the devil will wait for the right opportunity to pounce upon that wound and bring you down. (Joker got Harvey’s support for the destructive doings by emphasing on the unjust death of his girlfriend. This changed his way of thinking and his actions.) Subsequently, actions committed may seem logical to the person but in biblical perspective, it is actually wrong. (Similarly, Harvey’s mind was badly influenced by the Joker that revenge was the most logical thing for him to do to counter the problem. Obviously from a third party perspective, revenge is not the best solution to handle death, in fact, it worsens the situation.) If only the situation was handled with the right biblical measures, the problem will surely be overcome. (If only Harvey did not give in to Joker’s persuasions, he would not have taken the path of revenge that eventually cost him his life.)

It is interesting to see how a piece of act can evolve over the years but the essence of the work still remains. I like the way Minogue manages to capture the style of Broadway and still preserve the style that is unique to her.

Unpredictable, swift and compressed with action that bursts out timely. A show that everyone should catch in the theatres! It has been ages since I caught a film that I want to watch again as soon as it ends. It encompasses a deeper meaning of knowing someone that believes in you. I feel that the earlier part speaks to truants who long to have acceptance from people and deep down inside them they are actually fragile glasses putting up a strong front. Later part it just gets you sitting at the edge of your seat and keeps your eyes glued to the screen. Sadly, there were some boo-boo of the show. I THINK I saw the microphone, which captures their dialogue, when the camera turned swiftly? Also the subtitle had some random “D” letters appearing in the middle of silence. Totally distracting. Apart from that, everything else was sure great. Will Smith was superb and I think it is his season to act as a supernatural being. First I Am Legend and now Hancock. He is so talented to be able to portray the different characters and emotions. I will definitely catch the next movie of his.

A Song For Globe Idiots

Oh I love the Animaniacs! It is what I love to catch when I was younger. Plus the starting theme song is something I will never miss! But that is beside the point.

I want to know, WHY IS SINGAPORE NOT SHOWN? (And those who think we are part of China: Singapore is actually just below Malaysia)

 

(P.S. Don’t worry, I’m a globe idiot too. But, Singapore is REALLY below Malaysia!)
