3) SURF’S UP!
About: A penguin named Cody Maverick (Shia LaBeouf) who’s trying to fulfill his destiny in becoming the greatest surfer by winning a surfing contest in Pen Gu island. Going through many obstacles and at the same time made new friends such as Chicken Joe(Jon Heder), Lani (Zooey Deschanel) and Big Z (Jeff Bridges) along the process.
Comments: Surfing penguins… so what else can you expect? Oh yes, surfing chicken too… You’ll have some good laughs. Suitable for all ages.
About: An overachiever police officer named Nicolas Angel (Simon Pegg) from London who got transferred to the countryside. A sleepy village where everything seems to be calm and pacify but was actually controlled by a group of “watchers” who were responsible in making crime scenes looked like accidents. The village’s police officers were not much of a help too since they have been too comfortable with the tranquility of the surroundings and accused Angel as having delusions and cravings for some actions. Once truth was revealed, all hell breaks loose!
Comments: Thriller, action and comedy all in one. I love watching Danny Butterman’s (Nick Frost) dead pan acting. He’s being childishly amused by Angel’s history and experiences. For me, the funniest scene would be the shooting in the air, imitating Keanu Reeves in “Point Break”. Not recommended to all Gerak Khas The Movie’s fans.
5) HE WAS A QUIET MAN
About: Bob Maconel (Christian Slater) has been working in a place where he feels he doesn’t belong and been constantly ignored by his co-workers. He was about to lose it one day but someone had already made the bloodiest decision in having a shooting rampage at the office. Bob managed to pull the trigger which saved his life from falling prey. This incident however had made him had the opportunity to save a girl’s life who happens to be the one he’s been “fantasizing” about all along.
Comments: Not recommended to all losers who got a gun kept in their drawer. Lesson to be learned here is, to be careful if you are an office bully. The one you might think to be the biggest loser at your office might be the one who’ll be pulling the trigger at you any time soon or worst, activating a time bomb. Well, I don’t know about you but I’m going to write a greeting card to someone at my office now. Don’t ask me why. I just feel like… OK!
I’m so done with all this movie marathon thingy…
