...quantum kelate...

today was a fantastic day...i've been rejuvenated...

in the early morning, my big boss made a surprise offer for a 'teh tarik' session at NZ bistro (next to Public Bank, Jalan Ampang)...we had a really fun time chitchatting on Indonesia's shopping stories...more on teak furnitures...this has got to do with the planning of attending Dewi's wedding reception in December...i won't be joining though since i've yet to attend my other friend's wedding reception that same day as Dewi's...

back to the office, Erin spilled on her reviews for 'Budak Kelantan'...having convinced of the worthness of watching the said, i quickly asked harni out and the expected reply came...yeay...

so, during lunchtime, since i'm already full, i happily volunteered to purchase our tickets...the queue was very long as most people were eager to watch the new bond movie series - quantum of solace...though i am also tempted to watch this movie, i didn't put much hope on getting the ticket today as they were selling really really fast (there were about 17 showtimes...but still...)

when i nearly approached the ticket counter, i called Harni to ask whether she's interested to accompany me for a straight 2nd movie...i later found out that the genre was off her preference...okay...then, i'll just settle myself in...

and so it goes - 'Budak Kelantan' at 5pm (Harni and me) and Quantum of Solace at 710pm (only me)...was lucky actually to pick my seat for the bond movie...

at first, the ticket guy just shook his head when i asked,"Seat OK tak 007 pukul 710?"

"Saye tengok sorang je bang..."

"Owh...Kalau sorang, bole laa selit2 kat atas ni...Nak?!!"

my heart leaped up with joy upon hearing this...yeay...

attending technical talk that evening, i just can't force myself to concentrate...finished off my work at around 430pm and quickly dashed my way to the surau...already made promise to Harni to meet up at the entrance...

and now, my reviews...

'Budak Kelantan' was okay...the message was very clear...i'm expecting the story to be more dramatic...but the plot was too fast...within 2-3 days, Mr Amareka has been able to reveal his darkside world to his soooo very humble childhood friend (never misses prayers)...i personally think that the death of the main cast should be more tragic...and one thing that i'm yet to figure out the logic was the inclusion of a fairy tale ending of the good guy and the amoi...what's the relevance?!!anyway, it was quite an enjoyable movie for me being able to understand the dialect directly independent of the subtitles...i'm a 'Budak Kelantan' myself...heee...

'Budak Kelantan' ended earlier than expected at around 630pm...so, i got plenty of comfortable time to perform my Maghrib prayer...

met with FarrahIz at the surau and was delighted to know that she's watching 007 as well with her officemates...

quantum of solace was okay too...stunts were great...a lot of fires and explosions - very typical...the movie manage to include all modes of transportation in 'firing & chasing' scenes - starts with the Aston Martin DBS chasing an Alfa Romeo (tunnel scene plus hilly terrains) - with huge trailers and trucks and police cars into a quarry...then, there was the speedboat scene at the harbour...next on the list was a huge carrier airplane with a chasing fighter jet scene...not much of sex scenes or maybe there is but have been filtered out...frankly, i think for an agent/detective movie, the storyline should emphasize more on the investigation part, though i found that the high-tech, touch, digitalized search screen is quite impressive... as for the action-wise, i vote for die hard movie series...maybe...just maybe because i prefer bruce willis than daniel craig...willis is far more macho and tougher...

all in all, i like this part:

"bond, i want you back..."

"i never left..."

enough said, i am pleased to recommend all of you to go and watch the quantum of solace...would rate it as 4.27 star...'Budak Kelantan' only appeals to the malay films supporter... a good film that can be improved further...would rate it at 3.46 star...

looking forward to watch 'Selamat Pagi Cinta' soon...and also 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince'...not to forget, to bring my adorable niece and nephews to watch 'Madagascar 2'...
