At first, i was surprised to see so many famous faces in the film. And since everybody is important, you really don't know who is the central of the story. Each person has their own story line, so it's amazing to see them all in one movie and don't make you confuse with the whole chaos in it. The movie was great and to gather all those A-list stars are not an easy job, so i think the director has made a great job. Everybody is important in the movie. Awesome ^_^

Fun facts:
  • Sam Worthington, Jake Gyllenhaal and Orlando Bloom all turned down the role of Holden. Worthington also turned down the role of Sean Jackson
  • Felicia has the number 13 drawn on her hand it's actually Swift's lucky number.
  • Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock and Jodie Foster all turned down the role of Captain Kate Hazeltine
  • Julia Roberts was paid nearly $12,000 for each word she says in this film: 251 words in return for, reportedly, a $3 million paycheck
  • Julia Stiles auditioned for the role of Kara, but lost to Jessica Biel.
  • The Hollywood Forever Cemetery only shows movies during the summer, not on Valentine's Day

Toby's afraid and no one to talk to, Julia never reply his mails, but then he finds out that all Julia's mail are being held by Dr. Burns. With Julia stays in the hospital, Toby doesn't feel any better nor trust anyone.


Robert seriously need to find a better plotted movie after breaking dawn, and that means soon. This movie is boring. Not spooky or thrilling (i think it meant to be thrilling and spooky), and i have no idea what is the plot of the movie. Why Toby can't trust anyone? What means thing that Dr. Burns did other than Toby thinks he's suspicious? And the ending? For God sake, how can somebody is almost killed and not even scream? Sigh...no good


Title : Remember Me

Rating : Like it ^_^


Life is limited and you need to do things you should do no matter how insignificant it may seems. Tyler Hawkins is a rebellious, poetic, and synical young man.

I think this film portrayed many families in reality. Lots of children have problems with their parents and sometimes the problem grows bigger as the time goes by. And yes, to be supported with your family means a lot especially in rough times. You don't need to squeeze your eyebrows to see the movie, it's sweet and understandable. I love Robert Pattinson but my favorite guy in the movie is Pierce Brosnan ^_^, i see many real dads just like him in the film.

Fun facts:
  • During breaks while doing a street scene, Robert Pattinson was injured as he tried to flee from fans and paparazzi. He did not watch where he was going and ran into a parked cab. His injuries were not major or life-threatening (ffiuh..)
  • The movie obviously takes place in summer 2001, but in one scene, there is a Ford cargo van that did not come out until 2009.
  • At the beginning of the movie Ally is given a lift to college by her father. When she leaves the house she is in a red top but when she gets out of the car it is khaki.

I remember to see the A team in the only television station when i was a kid. The actions were great and since i always love to watch movie so mostly i watched the series. I can tell the remake is even better. I love to see Liam Neeson, Bradly Cooper, and even Sharlto Copley as Hannibal, Face, and Murdock. Buuuut, to see B.A. got enlightenment seem weird he he, i mean B.A? Enlightenment? You must be kidding. But overall, it's a great movie. The actions part was cool, the story line was exciting. Love it ^_^

Fun facts:
  • When B.A. meets Hannibal, he says he was a member of the 4th Ranger Battalion. There are currently only 3 Battalions in the 75th Ranger Regiment. The 4th, 5th, & 6th Battalions were formed during and disbanded at the end of World War II.
  • Pike is arrested in Frankfurt and interrogated in a building identified as the Embassy of the United States which is actually located in Berlin. The Consulate General of the United States is located in Frankfurt.
  • In the scene where Hannibal is being cremated: bodies are always put into some sort of container. Bodies are never placed "loose" in the chamber.
  • The A-Team's "retrieval" of the plates and the Arab are supposed to be in Germany. However, you can very clearly see Vancouver's Sears Tower outside of the office that the events happen in
  • When Hannibal fakes his death, the doctor's name on the tag is Dr Schultz, a reference to Dwight Schultz who portrayed Murdoch in the original series

A series of disappearance haunts Seattle and creeps to small city of Forks. Closer to her graduation day, Bella has lots in her mind. She begins to feel sad to realize that she's about to leave everything when she's changed. Edward tries to buy some time so Bella could stay human longer, and asks Bella to marry him if she insists him to change her. And tough Edward's condition makes her reluctant, Bella has no other way but accepts.
While having lunch, Alice is suddenly froze so Bella thinks she probably sees something regarding the Volturi, but Edward keeps saying nothing's wrong and remind Bella that she has an open ticket that need to use to visit her mom in Jacksonville.
While Edward and Bella away, the Cullens are preparing to catch Victoria, with Alice's vision, they try to intercept Victoria's way but failled when she disappears in Quileute territory and pushed to back away by several werewolf.

Bella and Jacob ride on motorcycle and left Edward worried by the time she comes back from Jacksonville, Jacob is furious to know that Bella is about to change as a vampire after graduation and wish Bella to die rather than being a vampire, this hurts Bella but Jacob determines to make Bella loves him since he believes that he suits Bella better than Edward.
The graduation is coming, Bella, Edward, and Alice are graduating, that's when Edward finds that there's a stranger coming to Bella's house and stole her belongings and it bothers Edward, so he's taking Bella to meet his family. Jasper and Emmett lost the trail of the smell and have no idea who is the intruder, Bella suggests Volturi but Alice said she will know if the Volturi make their movement.

Fears for Bella's safety, Edward tells her not to meet Jacob again, but Bella insists that the whole pack of werewolf would never harm her, so she keeps visiting Jacob, and during one of the visits, Jacob confess his love to Bella and kiss her. Being real mad, Bella punches him and broke her fingers that almost made Edward kills Jacob if Charlie's not show up.
meanwhile Alice is foreseeing an army of newborn vampire is coming to Forks that leads an alliance between the Cullens and Quiluete's werewolves.


I can say i'm a huge fans of twilight saga, but somehow, this movie failed me. I can't see the big chemistry between Bella and Edward tough there were lot's of kisses, but still you can't feel the passion as you feel it when you read the book. And halo! Bella shouldn't be that tough and brave! Well, she's tough and brave but in a timid way, after all she's just human! But this movie's version Bella is waay tougher, like she's the vampire herself.
Anyway, i love Dakota Fanning, she's mean, i felt real crept by seeing her talking. The action parts were good, that's the part that made me stop complaint up until the end of the movie. I can't say this movie is as good as the book, cause it's not. Sigh...

Fun facts:
  • During the scene where the Cullens are watching the news, the woman says "reporting live". She's in Seattle and it's night time there but at the Cullens' house we can see it's day time (through the window). Forks and Seattle are in the same time zone, therefore it should be the same time of the day in both places.
  • It's mentioned a couple times that Riley (as a human) has been missing for over a year. But when Charlie is looking at the Missing Persons flyer, it says Riley was last seen in May 2010.
  • It was revealed by Taylor Lautner in an interview that the censors required that the wolves have no genitalia whenever they appear on screen.
  • Robert Pattinson refused to let his eyebrows be plucked/waxed down as they had been in the previous two films

The Time Traveler's Wife

Title : The Time Traveler's Wife

Cast : Eric Bana, Rachel Mc Adam, Ron Livingston

Genre : Drama

Rating : Boring T_T

Pic : wikipedia.com


Henry De Tamble is a time traveler; having a genetic disorder which caused him to travel through time unwillingly, to the past and the future. He begins to travel at 5 while driving with his mom just before a crash happened, which eventually kills his mother. Henry meets his future wife Claire, when she’s only 6.

Henry and Claire meet at the library when Henry is 28 and Claire is 20, this present Henry has no idea who Claire is, since the one that met Claire in her childhood was older Henry, so Claire tells him the story. Soon, they get married and Henry is suddenly disappearing before the ceremony, but the older Henry shows up. The couple later finds up that Claire is having trouble carrying a pregnancy due to Henry’s gene disorder. After six miscarriages, Alba is born. Unlike her father, Alba can control where she wanted to go. Before Alba born, Henry is time travelling to the future and meet 5 year old Alba, and finds that he’ll die at 43.


I like to book very much. It’s the kind of romance book that you won’t like to put off before it finishes ^_^. Anyway, the film was not that fascinating. Don’t get me wrong, I love drama, and mostly I watch drama, but when I saw this film, I just feel very bored. They adapted mostly from the book, but somehow it felt plain and boring. The relationship between Henry and Claire was not as strong as the book.. Oh well, anyway, it is hard to make a film from a bestseller book, mostly I’ll be disappointed, so I’ll just deal with that.

Fun Facts:
  • Adrien Brody was the first choice of the writer to play Henry (they should use him)
  • Shipped to theaters under the name "Meadow"

He knows that The Cullen is away from Forks and aware that nobody protects Bella. He also said that Victoria maybe furious if he kills Bella now, but he can't resist to Bella's appealling blood smell. Before Laurent does anything, giant wolves appear, run after the frightened vampire.


I lost track of time to wait the movie, it's soooo long! Sigh. Though i know the story (and still very much remember tough i stop read the novel months ago T_T), i still want to see the film ^_^. But i can say i'm not to satisfied. One: the make up. Oh God, my gorgeous Rob looks extremely weird. Most of the scene, the white features are just too much. Come on guys, he's originally white and pale, why is it hard to make his features look a bit natural? Aro is just the same. Dakota looks great, they should use her make up artist, hmpppffh!
Second, it's kind of different than the book, well maybe they have reasons, but i just can't stand to see what they did to Edward! They made his character into weak and helpless. Arrrggh!
If you read the book, the sadness is devastating but you don't see it in the movie. Bella should be extra sad to be left behind. And the last scene, where a werewolf and a vampire stand face to face with Bella in between, Edward should be looked more..fierce. Afterall, a vampire hates werewolf right?

Fun Facts:
  • It takes 36 hours to change Nikki Reed hair's colour, so she reportedly use wig
  • Jamie Campbell Bower who plays Caius, originally casts for Edward at 2008
