2 movies in 1 go . . .

Dada and I watched two movies this week. The first one was "Star Wars : The Clone Wars" and the next was "Big Stan". We were supposed to watch "WALL-E" but decided not to because we were in Glorietta-4 and it's showing in Greenbelt.

Star Wars was good but I didn't understand the movie so much. It's fully animated and it still has the old SW feel. Anakin looks weird and is not his usual self here. It also introduces a new character but I forgot her name! She's a padawan. Yes, it's a "SHE".

Big Stan was hilarious! Nuff said. XD

I give Star Wars :

I give Big Stan :

"After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was built for, Wall-E (short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) discovers a new purpose in life (besides collecting knick-knacks) when he meets a sleek search robot named Eve. Eve comes to realize that Wall-E has inadvertently stumbled upon the key to the planet's future, and races back to space to report her findings to the humans (who have been eagerly awaiting word that it is safe to return home). Meanwhile, Wall-E chases Eve across the galaxy." Yahoo Movies

WALL-E is a great film! I watched it with my siblings during my day off and I can assure everyone that it's a MASTERPIECE!!! PIXAR has done it again! From the story to technical stuff – it's just AWESOME! All the characters are given importance regardless of how small their roles are and they're really funny. There are some tear-jerker moments as well as valuable lessons we can get. (hmm just rambling here haha!)

I wonder if the future will really be like this. Hmmmm~

*update Dec.3,2008* I bought a 2-disc DVD of WALL-E and it contains some scenes that were scrapped to give way to better ideas. It also has a short film containing BURN-E, the droid that got locked up when WALL-E and EVE entered the AXIOM. LoL!

If not for Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh . . .

" Explorer Rick O'Connell to combat the resurrected Han Emperor in an epic that races from the catacombs of ancient China high into the frigid Himalayas. Rick is joined in this all-new adventure by son Alex, wife Evelyn and her brother, Jonathan. And this time, the O'Connells must stop a mummy awoken from a 2,000-year-old curse who threatens to plunge the world into his merciless, unending service. Doomed by a double-crossing sorceress to spend eternity in suspended animation, China's ruthless Dragon Emperor and his 10,000 warriors have laid forgotten for eons, entombed in clay as a vast, silent terra cotta army. But when dashing adventurer Alex O'Connell is tricked into awakening the ruler from eternal slumber, the reckless young archaeologist must seek the help of the only people who know more than he does about taking down the undead: his parents. As the monarch roars back to life, our heroes find his quest for world domination has only intensified over the millennia. Striding the Far East with unimaginable supernatural powers, the Emperor Mummy will rouse his legion as an unstoppable, otherworldly force… unless the O'Connells can stop him first. " Yahoo Movies

Dada watched The Mummy : Tomb of the Dragon Emperor … IT WAS A WASTE OF MONEY!!! If not for Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh, I will never watch it on the big screen. I think I yawned three or four times during the run. Story is so lame! *****SPOILER START***** Zi Yuan had to die to let an American take victory over killing the Dragon Emperor. Yeah, right. So predictable! *****SPOILER END*****
