Movie Review: Fury (2014 - Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf)



Another World War II revisit but with added depth to the usual "right or wrong" subjects, depicted through horrific visuals and intense acting


Miss Brad Pitt's performance as Lieutenant Aldo "The Apache" Raine in Inglourious Basterds (2009)? Well he's back at war as an anti-Nazi soldier again, but this time with an emotionally heavier role in a seemingly more realistic portrayal of the war, and he nailed it, along with the rest of the main cast of rather well-known actors. Along with a tight screenplay and direction by David Ayer, (who directed and written one of my favourite 2012 films, End of Watch) Fury is perhaps one of the strongest war films to be reckoned with in recent years.

Movie Review: Love, Rosie (2014 - Lily Collins)

Love, Rosie movie still Lily Collins as Rosie Dunne and Sam Claflin as Alex Stewart

Charming performance by Lily Collins makes this simple rom-com likable and somewhat heartfelt


The most popular romance dramas in the past decade or so are centered around the premise of memory loss, a notebook or letters, and all of them are based on novels. Love, Rosie is no different. This romance comedy is based on Cecelia Ahern's (who also written P.S. I Love You) book Where Rainbows End (known as Love, Rosie or Rosie Dunne in the US) that's entirely in an epistolary structure in form of letters, instant messages, emails, etc. I believe most parts of the actual story were re-created by screenwriter Juliette Towhidi for the sake of making this a less dull movie, and it worked.

ONE FC 21: Peter Davis, Ev Ting, Ann Osman roared for Malaysia

Peter Davis Ev Ting Ann Osman win for Malaysia in ONE FC 21 Roar of Tigers

ONE FC: ROAR OF TIGERS - Debutant Marat Gafurov submits veteran Rob Lisita in 68 seconds

Malaysia had 3 wins and 3 losses on the night


It was the perfect ONE Fighting Championship debut for former M1 Global champion Marat "Cobra" Gafurov (10-0) as he took only a bit over a minute in this main event to finish off one of ONE FC's most aggressive strikers, Rob "Ruthless Lisita. The bout started off with Lisita going in for a jab and two hard swings of overhead punches, which he failed to land cleanly. Gafurov then surprised and dropped the Australian with a loud and effective roundhouse kick to the head. Lisita was immediately recovering but not fast enough to prevent the Russian from climbing onto his back and pulling him back to the ground. Gafurov got the body triangle locked tight and patiently worked his arm deep into Lisita's neck for the rear naked choke which Lisita would reluctantly tap out to.

Movie Review: James Cameron's Deepsea Challenge 3D (2014)

James Cameron going in Deepsea Challenger in Deepsea Challenge

A real documentary that shows what the big-time filmmaker saw in his solo dives into the deepest points on Earth... in high definition 3-D


It is exactly what the title of the film says - James Cameron's Deepsea Challenge in 3D - the chronicles of the multiple award-winning filmmaker's dive to the bottom of Challenger Deep, the deepest known point on Earth, in the sea at the southern end of the Mariana Trench with depth of almost 11,000 metres, all by himself. There are minimal reenactments, no special effects involved, it's not fictional (unlike what Discovery likes to release these days) and I believe not many documentaries are so well recorded and filmed as Cameron brought high definition 3D cameras along in his explorations.

Book of Life 2014 movie still

Forgettable but enjoyable, thanks to lively characters and fun, colourful visuals with impressive designs

James Cameron's 'Deepsea Challenge 3D' hits Malaysia, 'Love, Rosie' coming soon, GSC Mobile App on Windows Phone

Deepsea Challenge Love, Rosie GSC Mobile App Windows Phone Malaysia

Malaysia Movie Updates: GSC releases James Cameron's epic documentary Deepsea Challenge 3D, romance drama based on author Cecelia Ahern's novel Love, Rosie to hit local cinemas 23 Oct.

GSC Mobile App now available on Windows Phone


There hasn't been much publicity about James Cameron's 2014 documentary film Deepsea Challenge 3D and frankly, I wouldn't have heard of it if GSC Movies didn't suddenly decide to release here. Cameron, the producer and director of multiple big films (such as Titanic, Avatar, Aliens, The Terminator, just to name a few), made his long-life dream came true by piloting a self-designed craft to the bottom of Challenger Deep, the deepest known point on Earth, in the sea at the southern end of the Mariana Trench with depth of almost 11,000 metres, all by himself. And he didn't do it without bringing some high definition 3-D cameras along.
