Paperman (2012)
4 years ago via Movies on iPhone

In a span of 7 minutes, we get to see how a day can turn to a miraculous twist for an ordinary man. It's really a simply beautiful short that somehow reflects our daily lives.

Everyday we're facing the same routine that inevitably hindered us from crossing paths to what we value. In this story, a man eventually crossed that path and decidedly took the effort despite the hindrance of normality.

And what beautiful piece of music that complements the pacing of the story lines that it makes you feel that you're happy to reach that certainty, regardless of it's predictability.

Full five stars for it's emotional connectedness. I'm planning to watch more shorts from now on.

X-Men: First Class

It is just like what i've expected. To be blown away with epiphany.

The writers have really done well in providing structures that seems fit to originate what moviegoers have seen in the previous X-men films.

Bryan Singer have redeemed himself from the Superman disaster, although not being the director, yet he provided the synchronised storyline that shaped the division of Mutants that we've seen at present.

In the director's chair, i always have much respect for Matthew Vaughn. Such a flawless director with resume like Kick Ass, Stardust and Layer Cake. He managed to turn over the disappointment of Brett Ratner's X3 disaster (in which he supposed to direct) and made this a really refreshing franchise that made us craves for more.

With him at helm, he recruited a group of very promising, talented casts that doesn't have to be big names (even Kevin Bacon had the opportunities to widen his Six degrees of separation to fresh actors). I for one, was amused by the eye candies of Rose Byrne, January Jones and Zoe Kravitz (Lenny's daughter, awesomely beautiful). Mostly underrated, but vastly talented. And there's even Brendan Fehr having a small role in this big film. Wonder what have gone through his career...

I've never had that much time reviewing movies anymore, but this one is an exception. That's how awesome it was. Three words: "Blockbuster, with contents".

Blue Valentine

A testing relationship. Bittersweet, yet heartbreaking story on how two people dealt with the ever growing distance between them.

What fascinates me is that it didn't chronologically tells the story, instead it was told in a back-and-forth timeline. It was quite confusing at first, until it effectively shows how it relates to one another.

I felt sorry for one character's attempt to fight the challenges of the inevitable. In other words, it was a story of love, lost and enduring compromises.

Avatar (2009)

Fortunate enough to watch this in 3D, and i had a blast. James Cameron is one epic director who truly knows how to create a groundbreaking box office and record shattering film.

With its extraterrestrial storyline and brilliant imagination of creatures of the third kind, it is definitely interesting to see how us human can be the ultimate villain of the universe.

Kudos to James Cam for creating a new world which starts from scratch without having to "copy" other ideas, in a period when Hollywood looks like they are running out of ideas.

All in all, definitely a movie worth watching in a cinema, especially in 3D. What an experience!!
