Happy Feet 2

Stars : Brad Pitt, Elijah Wood, Hank Azaria, Hugo Weaving, Matt Damon, Pink, Robin Williams
Director : George Miller
Genre : Animation / Family / Kids
Release Date : 17 Nov 2011
Runtime : minutes

Mumble the penguin has a problem: his son Erik, who is reluctant to dance, encounters The Mighty Sven, a penguin who can fly! Things get worse for Mumble when the world is shaken by powerful forces, causing him to brings together the penguin nations and their allies to set things right.

A good movie to be watched with your family especially if you have little sister/brother. Don't think it's a silly kid's movie and no worth to watch by adults, in fact, I noticed a lot of adults' crying during the movie while the kids were so happy to see the penguins dancing with the beat of music.

There are many meaningful lessons and messages presented by this movie as well. It teaches its viewers about accepting one's uniqueness, living life to the fullest and recognizing the presence of other people. The story of Mumble, Gloria and Erik has inspired me. This penguin family has shown the true meaning of a "happy family." They are always available for each other no matter what happens. Mumble, as the head of the family, did all that he can to make his wife and son feel love and care all the time. Another character in the film that moved me is Erik. He is a cute baby penguin who has no interest in dancing unlike all the other penguins in his community. His uniqueness made him feel that he is an outcast. However, as he takes the adventure of life and love, he realizes that being unique makes him stand out among the rest. It was great to see that Erik, at a young age, discovered his true self. 

Happy!!! ^__^ 

Seeking Justice (2011)

Stars : Guy Pearce, January Jones, Jennifer Carpenter, Nicolas Cage
Director : Roger Donaldson
Genre : Action / Drama / Thriller
Release Date : 17 Nov 2011
Runtime : 1 hour 47 minutes

Nick Gerard is a man enraged. When his wife Laura (Jones) is assaulted in a sudden and random manner, and the couple are left to pick up the pieces, Nick refuses to go quietly. He is soon approached by someone who calls himself Simon (Pearce), who offers to "take care of it", for him, in return for a promise to return a favour in the future. Nick agrees, however, things are not as simple as it seems when Nick is soon called upon to return the favour with actions that goes against his morals.

Nicholas Cage was the only reason that made me watch this movie. And, obviously, if it's not him, I would think twice. The story was kinda interesting, but there were few unclear scenes. If you're a fans of Nicholas Cage, You should watch this. If you're not... well, just enjoy the interesting story about justice in our daily life. 

Once again, it's because of Nicholas Cage... :p 

Thanks to GSCMOVIES for the premiere screening tickets ^^

My Nuffnang Story

It was on 31 March 2011 when I first created my very first blog. I came across to read Isaac's blog and saw that little cute Nuffnang's ad, and wonder myself, what's that. Google-d it and found the website, so without further ado, I clicked SIGN UP. 

 Isaac also introduced me to another bloggers via twitter, and we finally met at the premiere screening organized by Nuffnang. It's really the first time for me to meet new friends from the internet and could finally meet up in real. Not only 1-2 friends, but I gained more than 10 friends after I joined Nuffnang. 

I felt very happy whenever I've been invited to the premiere screening because movie is my drugs. Super 8 was the first movie from Nuffnang, and once again, I gained more and more friends. I got to know friendly Nuffies, like Anne, Fresh, Farah and the latest one is Mikaela. 
Beautiful Nuffies

Mikhaela & Mikaela :)

Not only movies, Nuffnang has also given me a lot of extra ordinary experiences full with joy and fun. They invited me to attend gadget launching event, such as Blackberry and Samsung, taught me how to make up with L'oreal event, bring me to party with Twisties, and many more. 

Even though I'm a lousy blogger, because I'm too busy to update my blog in daily basis, Nuffnang still be kindly invites me to any event they have. I loveeeee loveee lovee Nuffnang! To close year 2011, in the middle of December, Nuffnang presents the second edition of the Blog Awards as a celebration of the rapidly expanding blogging community in the Asia-Pacific region. I would like to attend this award ceremony, and my main purpose is..... 
Yeahh.. to see the Nuffnang's founder in person!!! I know, I could meet him at his office (if I'm lucky and he's not busy), but I wish to see him on the stage of the NAPBASS award, hear his pubic speech, and learn from this below-30-years-old successful entrepreneur on how to be successful like him. It's so damn cool to be a boss in a young age, have young employees, and live our working life with fun, dynamic and fresh! At least, that's what I think of Nuffnang. =) 

 Really appreciate what Nuffnang's doing with my life. Thanks a lot Nuffnang!! I will be more diligent, and write more and more and more so next 2 years I could be in the list of NAPBASS' nominee. ^^

The Adventure of Tin Tin: Secret of the Unicorn

young reporter Tintin, his dog Snowy, and his friend Captain Haddock, discover a riddle left by Haddock's ancestor, the 17th century Sir Francis Haddock, which could lead them to the hidden treasure of the pirate Red Rackham. In order to unravel the riddle, Tintin and Haddock must obtain three identical models of Sir Francis' ship, the Unicorn, but discover that criminals are also after these model ships, and are willing to kill in order to obtain them.

Remember my previous post  My Chihuahuas, the Real Adventure ? Thanks to NuffnangMY for picking my post to win a premiere tickets to watch this movie. It's a very good movie, good animation, interesting story, and for those who never read Tin Tin's comic before, afraid not, as the story is easy to catch.
