movie review: Toystory and the karate kid


two contrasting movies with different targeted demographic.
Firstly, I want to talk about Toy Story 3. This time Andy is all grown up and is ready to go to college. The toys are panicking and scare on becoming toys that are eventually thrown out as thrash, but they did, as Andy's mum have mistaken them as thrash when Andy wants to put them on the attic in a big black rubbish back. Will they survive? Just go to your nearest cinema to find out.
The most obvious thing that happen this time around the movie is the dark subject matter of not being wanted. The darker undertone is reverberated throughout the whole movie and the toys are in for doomsday.
One thing that keeps pixar's animation on top is the storyline and as usual they delivered. What they did with previous outings such as UP and many more they managed to give and tell a simple story with a solid and smooth transition from on scene to another without compromising the animation itself.
the ending was an emotional one. No spoilers here. just go watch for yourselves. This movie is highly recommended.

Meanwhile karate kid is a remake or an updated version of the 1984 film by Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita. I literally grew up with the original, so I wasn't expecting much from the remake. All I can say is that it was just an average film because of the I am a loser but I was taught kung fu and then became a hero premise. It is just so predictable. I hate the fact that the director decided to drag the film with its philosophical teachings of ying and yang and so on. It just felt so winding and boring. The ending felt rushed too. The movie felt stale to my taste. This movie is just a fun popcorn movie. Nothing to shout about.

movie review: Shrek forever after and Prince of Persia, Sands of Time

I thought the special effect was up to par. I just feel that the storyline is to generic in comparison with other Arabian Night/Indiana Jones movie. This was just an okay movie for me.


The final installment of the popular series is back.
Rumplestiltskin is keen on getting the land far far away all for himself but all hope was dashed when Shrek save Princess Fiona, all lockup. Fast forward, when Shrek has a family with Fiona he starts to miss his old life and starts complaining. All hell breaks lose when he meets Rumplestiltskin and both of them had a deal, which is not what it all seems to be.
All I can say is that this movie has it sweet and not so sweet moment. The problem with this movie is that the jokes are mostly recycled from the previous one and the deal breaker for me was the ending. I feel that the movie ending did not do justice to the title of the movie. It is after all the final chapter. Other than that, the scene worthy to look out for is where Puss in Boots has became an overweight cat. That scene was really funny.
Overall still a great movie, but with a lack of punch.

the Schick Quattro Titanium shaver review

Decided to get myself a new shaver for myself and after a while of searching across the supermarket shelf, I finally put my money on a brand spanking new schick shaver
the neat and simple packaging
Upon opening the package, I got a good feel of the rubber grip
it also comes with a holder to hold your shaver in place

thus the shaving begins
a little bit of shaving cream
and shave.....
and shave
till you get smooth shave...

The first thing I like about the shaver is its firm and steady rubber grip. Secondly, I didn't get an after shave burn or rashes after the shave. All and all it was an extremely comfortable and smooth shave. Highly recommended for every guy.

p.s. I was not at all paid for this
