There is this inane need in me, to write a reflectory kind of post because today is December 31st *eyes roll* Seriously. But I’ve been busy. Editing, filming my boss, etcetc, and then yeah, so I haven’t done it. And I feel like I should. In any case. It will come. It really will. Might take some time, but it’ll happen. Heh.
OMG. Cry. Die. Me.
So… it’s an interesting depiction of life after death, a very interesting portrayal of heaven and hell, and well, I suppose there could be much food for thought if I were in the mood to think. But… I’ll just take everything at surface value for now, and as such, I quite enjoyed it. Despite the tears. Yup.
Watching this film in CX’s new business class made me cringe just a very little bit, because it made me laugh out loud, and I hadn’t expected to laugh.
And the cameos at the end? Genius!!
First upgrade in my life!! The new Cathay Pacific business class is awesomeness!!! Still not used to being addressed by name on the flight though (the last time this happened was when I travelled business class to and from Sydney back in 2004). But it was great… super comfy. Stupendously blessed methinks! Yay!
Yay to roast pork belly and turkey and lots of mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts and delicious bread pudding and strange African tea… So blessed to get a proper Christmas dinner so far from home, heh, and more delicious than I would have had if I’d stayed in Hong Kong. Haha!! I have amazing friends, I really do.
Thanks to the Cho girls & dad, and Vic & Yuko.
While I prefer Stranger than Fiction, I thought this was a fun little movie too. Made me laugh, made me think… Ahhh… to be a genius with a brilliant story in one’s head. Haha.
I heart JGL. And I thought the movie was great… until the end *sigh* I really hate the (SPOILER ALERT!!!!!) stereotypical Chinese immigrant on boat blah blah snakehead blah blah ending. I mean, it’s the reason behind the whole entire film and it was just pathetic. I don’t know if it’s because I’m Chinese, or if it’s because the whole reason is entirely overused (think the 1st Transporter movie, and many others). Rah. And that “Chinese” woman had such a fake Chinese accent. And she didn’t look at all like she had a kid *eyes roll* ANYWAYYYY. Until that part of the film though, I really liked it. I thought the stunts were great and the cycling parts were great and JGL was great. But then, he’s always great. Heh. Okay. That’s it. Thank you very much.
Cry. Die. Me.
Blew. Me. Away.
I’m going to have to come up with the top ten films of 2012 soon… I think it’s going to be pretty easy to come up with my fave 10 this year… And I can say for sure, Les Miz tops it, because while there were some damn fun movies out in 2012, this was the only one that touched my soul.
Kudos to Tom Hooper and the whole cast and crew. I have no words.
So I went to a friend’s house for a house party tonight, the night of Winter Solstice. It’s the first house party I’ve been to since Shern left Hong Kong. It’s interesting how uncomfortable I felt in that situation, and yet how much I wish I could fit in and enjoy and… yeah. I dunno. I went, so at least I’m trying…
