Essay #30

Spiritual - Of, relating to, consisting of, or having the nature of spirit; not tangible or material.

Religious - Having or showing belief in and reverence for God or a deity.

So this morning, i decided to go to a seminar/talk from a spiritual master/ Shyalpa Rinpoche.
Have to say it's quite an experience, the horns and funny hats they were wearing. didn't know that rinpoches were so high and powerful. Lots of people turned up which surprised me, didn't know malaysians would get up so early. Anyway, I did get enlightened. He speaks from Simplicity and his answers are all about yourself. How you determine everything in your life. Example: how your day will turn out, if you yourself generate Compasion. how your money or family will be. it's all up to you. and also not being selfish. It was quite a good experience, i got a good look at Buddhism. But the chants creeped me out though. heh. thank you pa. and congratulations!

YESS! IRON MAN 2! the movie which i've wanted to so badly ever since it came out, yeah i didn't have the time to go out and watch this. busy? anyways, synopsis.

With the world now aware of his dual life as the armored superhero Iron Man, billionaire inventor Tony Stark faces pressure from the government, the press, and the public to share his technology with the military. Unwilling to let go of his invention, Stark, along with Pepper Potts, and James "Rhodey" Rhodes at his side, must forge new alliances - and confront powerful enemies.

Well, you know it's the same old with sequels. A new baddie comes around and who do you have? IRON MAN. and yes it's the usual recipe for good action movies, baddies almost kills our hero then in some awesome comeback-way our hero wins! yeah boring. BUT. i still loved it. haha. i love these kinda of movie! i'm a teenager! who doesn't love action movies?

Cast was even better now! you got SCARLET BABY!

yeah, eyes back here. Acting was good. although i was dissapointed with the fight scene against Whiplash (Mickey Rourke) it was too short! EXTEND IT! aahh! and i'm still not sure what did tony stark or his dad did to the guy. why does he wanna kill iron man? you know? puzzled? i am. or maybe i wasn't paying attention.

Oh and did you watch the special cut scene after the credits? THOR IS COMING!


Essay #28

Salt! i call it Angelina's comback kicking ass on the big screen after her lara croft years! a

and yes, she did not dissapoint she's still and kicking baddies! but this time, not in revealing clothes lah. no jug shaking-baywatch style. ANYWAY. intoduction.

Evelyn Salt is a CIA agent and highly respected by all, including her boss, Ted Winter. Out of the blue, a Russian spy walks into their offices and offers a vital piece of information: the President of Russia will be assassinated during his forthcoming visit to New York City to attend the funeral of the recently deceased U.S. Vice President. The name of the assassin: Evelyn Salt. Concerned about the safety of her husband, who she cannot contact, she goes on the run. Winter refuses to accept that she is a mole or a double agent but her actions begin to raise doubts. Just who is Evelyn Salt and what is she planning?

Yeah, sounds like a action packed movie. yeah it is. everything was fast fast boom.But it was good. unlike ' The  Expendables' that one is too much is one. but we're not talking about that. 

Angelina did well in this movie. the usual cold-straight look and shoot you in the face attitude. Cast was good. Acting was swell.

But storyline abit off for me. and the ending too. part 2? hmm
