Before I talk about the movie, I wanna complain about something : my mum threw away my World of Warcraft mousepad!!!!!!!!
Something that looked like the above. Yup, I know mine is like dirty, cuz it’s been used for like… When 3rd expansion is out for WoW, lemme check how long has it been… 2008! It’s been with me for 4 years!! I’ve gotten it when I pre-ordered for the hard copy of the expansion pack and now it’s gone, *depressed*.
Okay, am depressed is not cuz I’m a huge big fan of WoW (as much as how I sound like 1 to you, I’m really not that big of a fan, I only subscribed to the game for a year cuz I had nothing better to do, especially not with the mac I’m using, hell, I can’t even have funshion. Question goes down to : so why did I bought it? Cuz I’m crazy). The reason why I continued on using the mousepad which is really dirty is cuz it’s really nice to use!!! There are some mousepads that when I use my mouse on it, sometimes the mouse are not as effective, and now my mum just threw it away without asking me.
*drew circle in one corner*.
Anyway, let’s move on, can’t do anything about it. Wanted to buy another mousepad online on WoW website which goes for 15USD,
The price is quite acceptable to me, just when I clicked Add to Cart and ready to pay for it.. Know what? The shipping fee is actually 18USD, that is more than the prize of the frigging mousepad!! Nope, I’m not prepared to spend a 50 bucks for a mousepad, especially not when the shipping is more than the mousepad itself. (sweats)
Okay, so I’ve watched this show like, I dunno, 2 weeks ago? Too lazy to blog nowadays, my life is as boring as a life of a snail. (Wanted to say cockroach, but I think its life might be more adventurous than mine).
I only have a conclusion to make of this movie : overrated.
There’s such a big whoo ha about how great this movie is, how nice the plot is, blah blah and blah, my friend even told me she don’t mind watching it a second time, which made me really thought : Wow, is it that nice?
I think it’s cuz this movie have to cater to people of all ages, and this storyline, no matter how you look at it, doesn’t seem like it can be catered for all ages (though it’s a young adult novel), so there are some parts whereby they should go over it slower, and more detailed-ly, was just shown rather briefly. Eg, fighting scenes. Throughout all the fighting scene, the camera is shifting around all the places like as if the camera holder is currently filming a earth quake disaster, so a lot of supposedly-should-be-gory parts are just brought over. Some parts which I can’t wait for it to be like earth quake scene however, were shown in a slow pace.
I’m not a person who watches gory / horror show (as most of you should know by now), but I think they could have shown more on the violent parts, the camera was shaking so much of the time that when the “game” started, half of the contestants were already dead but I was still kinda in my lalaland, not knowing what just happened.
I like the female lead character though, she’s very suave throughout the show, and it’s archeryyyyyyy!!! Archery is coooollllll, though my brother told me once before that guns are cooler, because it’s definitely more practical and faster, eg : before I can load an arrow, I’d have been killed by a gun already (I could only roll eyes at him when he said it). Apparently, this lady here underwent archery training through a Olympian archer before she went to act on this movie, yup, which made the whole thing so real haha.
Anyway, just a side thing, she (Jennifer Lawrence) actually acted in X-Men : First Class before, as Mystique, that’s surprising haha.
On the whole, this movie is okay. Unlike my friend, I wouldn’t wanna watch it a second time, it’s draggy at some points which I find it unnecessary, and the eye candy for this movie for me is the girl instead of the guy haha.
