More Like Boring

Sorry for the lack of posts recently. I've been kind of busy this past week or rather, I haven't had the time and opportunity to sit down in front of the computer and write an entry.

Last week I went to watch A Lot Like Love. From what I heard, it was a movie that many people wanted to catch, after they saw the trailer. And I'll admit that I was one of those people too.

According to the reviews in the papers, this movie was rated quite poorly. Most of the reviews gave 2 or at most 2.5 stars out of 5. And you know what, those reviews were right.

When you catch the trailer, the main thing that captures your attention is the storyline. The intriguing story of 2 people meeting out of chance and becoming friends and then falling for each other at the worst possible moment.

Sad to say however, the storyline fails miserably. Everything happens as expected without any twists in the plot. Well, you may say there's one twist towards the end that enables our 2 lovers to get together, but it's so easy to anticipate that I wouldn't call it a twist at all.

The second attraction, of course, is the comedy. Unfortunately as well, the jokes and scenes weren't really that funny. The level of comedy hardly goes beyond what you see in the trailers. I didn't laugh out loud that many times and neither did anyone else in the cinema. For me, it fails miserably in these 2 areas and that's why it's such a disappointing movie.

So what I recommend is, just wait for the VCD to come out and then borrow it from someone. It's not even worth spending money on. At least I watched it on a weekday and saved myself $2.

Don't even have chiobu to oogle at. Samantha Peet isn't that fantastic looking. Thanks for the warning, but anyway I wouldn't have watched it in the first place. No girlfriend like you la.

On a different note, I just watched Fantastic Four today. So damn cool!
