James Cameron’s Avatar

Scrap everything I planned to post today. I am too excited to review James Cameron’s Avatar movie! No, I haven’t really watch Titanic yet til now so I am not a fan.

It is certainly the movie event of the year! Avatar was incredible, superb, awesome and amazingly spectacular! Did I missed any word? That was my impression while watching it but when it ends, I am astoundingly speechless. It was the most “perfected” movie I have ever known to watch. Now I believe that it really took them 15 years to make.

If you have watched the trailer and you think it was nothing, I’d say you haven’t seen anything yet!

Just to create an unreal world was totally unreal! I mean, it was an amazing adventure to a realistically whole new world. The storyline had everything in it, literally. Whatever movie genre you could think of, love, sci-fi, war, action, etc they have it and compose it very well. Nothing is overdone.

I tried my best to critic on the bad side of the movie but I give up. To me there are none. Yes you could talk about the blue aliens called Na’vi but if they had designed them with one eye or something like that, it wouldn’t be as real for our human mind.

I won’t say much about the special effects, as it was a whole new level beyond imagination. Even though it seems like the Na’vi was all the same, the main characters were differentiate flawlessly. It’s really 15 years worth of a movie and 2 hours 45 mins most worth it of my life.

I feel complete. I’m relieved that now there’s a perfect movie that’s worth putting as my #1 favourite movie in my entire life. Now should I go and watch the 3D version eh?

Here’s my illustrated version of Liyana from the band Estrella. Click it for lyrical version


And this is the band hit single “Stay”

Sing along!

Sounds straight from the twilight
Has me up all night I can’t
Fall asleep coz I keep thinking of you
And I saw a shadow, outside my window
And it’s you!

All my sorrows flew away,
Hush keep quiet hear me say
I don’t ever want you to go
Please stay

With the moonlight dancing free
And there’s no one but you and me
There’s no reason to go astray
Please stay

Making up a story
It’s the way you’re looking at me
If you think that this is funny
It’s just you

Try and think about it
If your heart is closed don’t lock it
Keep your keys back in your pocket, think this through

Repeat c/o

Please stay with me
Just stay with me
I’ll take you to foreverland
Just stay

It was way back in 1998 when I watched The Storm Riders. It was good then. This should be my very first review on a Hong Kong movie. It is the anticipated Storm Warriors or as in the Malay-translated comic, Pedang Setiawan!

Not really a fan but I must say, as a designer I like all the artistic elements in the movie. Some heavy abstract graphical sequences caught my attention. It was Striding Cloud’s poses made everything seem very, very cool! The casts were great especially Whispering Wind when he became er something else!











Although it jump-started with action scene, don’t expect too much on the storyline. Even the dialogue was so very little. It was basically a combination of 2 episodes of a TV series joint into a movie. There’s no focus in the movie and there were a lot of plots, as if one plot was not confusing enough?







Somehow I have to admit, the movie is very inspiring and appealing to me in an illustrative graphical eye-candy kind of sense!
