Disney and Pixar unveiled their complete animated movie line-up from 2008 to 2012 today at a press conference in New York. Featured in their announcement is a diverse and ambitious slate of 13 new animated feature films, most of which will be featured in 3D. As has been the case recently, Disney will be releasing two major animated movies per year – one Pixar and one Disney. Starting in 2009, however, we’ll be treated to 2 Pixar movies per year: 3D versions of Toy Story (in ’09) and Toy Story 2 (in ’10) as well as Up (in ’09) and Toy Story 3 (in ’10) and Newt and The Bear and the Bow (in ’11). In addition, Pixar also announced a new movie – Newt – for 2011. Disney also has a promising line-up of their own, including an adaptation of a Philip K. Dick story titled King of the Elves.
Caught Untraceable last week at GV VivoCity. Took 2 hours off to relax myself. Been so busy with my school nowdays.
I heard mix reviews about the movie, but personally I love Untraceable. I love all those technology stuff that they mentioned in the movie. Like TTL value, botnet, etc. I hope there is more of these type of movies.
Theodor Seuss Geisel (March 2, 1904 – September 24, 1991) was an American writer and cartoonist best known for his classic children’s books under the pen name Dr. Seuss, including The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. (taken from Wikipedia).
The latest movie that is based on his children book was Horton Hears A Who. Caught it 2 days ago at GV VivoCity as Li Xiang wanted to catch a movie to de-stress from the tons and tones of assignments. It so happened that this is the first movie we watched in March! That is so unlike us. We used to watch movie at least once every week. Apparently the never ending school work is taking up most of our time.
L: Change The World
Caught L: Change The World last Friday at Cineleisure. The movie is just a spin-off featuring L from Death Note movie. After L wrote his name of the Death Note, he got another 23 days left to live and this movie starts off when he got 23 days left to live all the way till he has only 1 day left. The movie itself has nothing to do with Death Note and there are only 1 scene which show both the Death Note and Ryuk (Shinigami) if I remember correctly. There is some humor throughout the whole movie which I think is not that bad, but this movie is missing the excitement of L and Kira trying to outwit each other and hence the storyline is quite plain. Remember to stay after the credits.
Towards the end of the movie, there is a scene which may cause another spin off =)
Busy With School
I am so god damn busy with my school. My assignments and tutorials keep coming, I hardly has time to breathe. As Chinese New Year is just next week, I got like 1 assignment (1x CS3216) and 4 tutorials (2x CS2301, 1x MA1312 and 1x CS2106) due on Tuesday. Damn stress. This is definitely my most busiest semester in NUS and it is only the 3rd week of school!
Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000
Got myself a webcam, a Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 for S$89. I was quite skeptical about the whole webcam thing when it first got popular. I was like, why the heck do I need a webcam for, it is like invading my own privacy. But ever since Li Xiang got a 3G phone, I would video call her at least 3 times during the weekdays as we don’t get to see each other for the whole 4 to 5 days. Then the day has come that Li Xiang desktop computer was rather unstable and hence she switched to her laptop which as a built-in camera. So instead, she video called me over WLM, and I am able to see her on the video, but she can only see what I type. So I decided it is time to invest in a webcam and save on my mobile phone bills.

[GOKU] 18 years old, Goku is considered uncool and unpopular at school, but he is in fact an extremely talented martial arts fighter who gets rigorous training from his grandfather, Gohan. After the death of his grandfather by the evil Lord Piccolo, Goku finds his destiny in his grandfathers dying request that he find Master Roshi and gather all seven Dragon Balls (of which he has one) in order to prevent Piccolo from succeeding in his desire to use the dragonballs to take over the world. Trained by Master Roshi, aided by Bulma and Yamcha, friends he meets along the way, Goku proves himself a formidable, almost undefeatable fighter. On many dangerous adventures to find the remaining Dragon Balls and thus save the world, Goku conquers physical and emotional challenges, ultimately saving the world but clearly impelled to spend his life searching for the Dragon Balls with his trusty companions.
It has been a month since I caught a movie at the cinema due to our busy schedule, but finally found some time last Friday to catch a midnight show, Ratatouille, at GV VivoCity.
The show was not bad bad but a little too draggy, it is about 2 hours longs but nevertheless Pixar animation is always outstanding, I am really amazed by how they did the water effects. Imagine the algorithm and mathematical calculation behind it! That was what is going through my mind when I am watching it. LOL
881 is no doubt one of the best local production ever been made. Royston Tan has yet done it again right after 15 and 4:30. At this age, I think he has already surpass Jack Neo.
One thing I like about Royston’s movies is that they are always very unique and portray a different side of Singapore and some of the actors and actress he used in the movie are not actors and actress by nature, instead they are doing it as a profession.
