Just now I went to Alamanda. Yes, again. Even though that place has nothing, it's the only thing close to civilization here. UGH. Anywho, we went for a back-to-back movie marathon. Papadom was at 1:30PM and Pandorum was at 3:00PM, so we bought the tickets for both of the movies and watched Papadom. I'll start with the movie review of PAPADOM first:
The movie was great! It was emotional but comical at the same time. Actually, I only like Afdlin Shauki and Que Haidar, the others were pretty, err, blah. I loved the story line of the movie. It wasn't like one of those movies where it's pretty much motive-less, you know? It was sad to see that Afdlin Shauki's character didn't have anybody left except for his only daughter, Miasara, so after his wife died, he started to get all overprotective over Mia (Try send-to-class-and-serve-you-food-at-the-school-canteen protective). Even in high school, Saadom (That's his character's name) still ties her daughter's hair. I guess when his daughter wanted to go to college somewhere far away from home, he felt the urge to keep her safe without her knowing it. But overall, it's just an awesome movie. It's more about the undying love of a father towards his daughter but it just got way out of control. I'd give it a 4 out of 5 stars =)
Now, let's move on to the 2nd movie, shall we?
Okay, for Pandorum, I can't say much because I entered the cinema 30 minutes late, so we basically missed the starting of the movie but it was pretty easy to follow cause even the people in the ship don't know what's heading their way. This movie wasn't that great. I don't know why my sister wanted to watch this movie so much. Oh wait, I do, it's because Ben Foster and Cam Gigandet are in the movie -__-' Moving on, I hated the 'mutants' the most. They were gross and sickening. And they were awfully fast. I didn't like the fact that it's in a spaceship. It made it more unreal. I mean, they were in a Hypersleep for 200 something years and Earth has been destroyed in that period of time. What the hell man! Earth? Destroyed? No way! Apparently in the movie, they were searching for another place to call 'home'. More like a second planet in another universe, I guess. They landed in planet Tanis in year 1. Population? 1718. Overall, it was a slow, weird and not so great movie. I'd give it 2 out of 5 stars =/
