I Am Legend: The Review

December 30, 2007 at 2:07 am (Movie Reviews, Reviews) (, , , )

I watched “I Am Legend” at the cinema today, together with my brother and his wife, my sister and my girlfriend.

I must say, I was very entertained with the plot. The quest to being sucessful one isn’t a nice one though…

On the contrary, this is the only movie I remembered not seeing kissing scene between the hero and the lover!

Anyway, here’s the quick review by me.

Graphics: 10/10 – Fully gore, fully graphical. If you like gore movies and a little thriller, this is the movie for you.

Sound FX: 9/10 – Definitely the best sound effects you’ll hear in such a action packed movie. Though it’s not really action packed, it’s just great enough for you to experience the atmosphere of that scene.

Storyline: 8/10 – Just another world apocalypse movie with people getting infected with some kind of disease. You may find this almost similar as “28 Days Later” and “Resident Evil” series.

Overall: 8.5/10 – Great action, great script humour and overall great movie.

Verdict: Great if you want your partner to grab you while watching the movie. And please don’t watch this if you’re suffering from any kind of heart disease, because the shock are pretty unpredictable. 🙂

Beowulf Movie Review

November 27, 2007 at 11:45 pm (Movie Reviews, Reviews) (, , , )

Today I watched Beowulf with my darling hehehe… Well I got 2 complimentary tickets from a close friend, so I called her up to catch a movie. At first, we wanted to watch Enchanted but she turned up 10 mins late, so I decided to watch Beowulf (NC16) instead.

Overall, it was a nice movie, an interesting plot, but rather predictable storyline.

I would rate:-

Graphics: 9/10 – Still can’t make a 3D real life. I guess, the graphics were nice and gore, but well, maybe could be a little more “realistic”, especially the facial expression. Overall, it surpasses my judgement of what 3D would be in the near future.

Sound FX: 9/10 – Fantastic sound effects. Really stunning. Well maybe my cinema isn’t as big as in VivoCity so maybe the sound effects doesn’t really burst my eardrums. But overall it was good.

Storyline: 8/10 – I would say, it was rather linear. It was wayyy too direct for it to be interesting, but everybody seems to know what’s going to happen next. Especially in the ending. Not my kind of storyline I’d expect from a good story like this.

Overall: 8.5/10 – Well, it was a nice 3D movie, good storyline… And not forgetting the hard 3D body of Angelina Jolie 🙂

Verdict: If you have complimentary tickets like me to spare, why not catch this great animated movie. Afterall, it’s nice to catch such a serious and gore movie once in a while.
