Jack Reacher is movie about Jack Reacher. Well, duh! Jack Reacher, the protagonist of the story, is an ex-military investigator. The plot of the film starts with a military sniper James Barr accused of murdering 5 innocent civilians. Instead of confession, he asks for Jack Reacher. From there on, the story progress to Jack Reacher working Barr’s defend attorney to investigate the case. It turned out that case is more serial and cold blooded then just a simple homicidal militant. Jack Reacher who lives for his own free will and justice and obey no law or regulation, decided to matter into his own hands.
I like it. Jack Reacher is one of my favorite genre. The crime thriller investigation film with twist in plot and conspiracy theory. All that stuffs. I like Reacher was able to slowly identify clues, questions things no one thought of, and tracing the evidences to reveal the bigger pictures. If you’re expecting actions, this isn’t much. But if you expecting investigations, then you are in for a treat. The letdown in this film for me is that I feel that it’s not extreme and complex enough. I wish the villain was more cold blooded and subtle in his scheme. Also his scheme should be more complex and Jack should get into a bit more trouble and struggle a bit more to win.
With that said, I still enjoy it. It’s just that I see the plot I like and it’s not great enough, I hope it can be made more awesome. Overall, I’d recommend it for those who enjoy crime and investigation with conspiracy theory.
In our quest for delicious pizza, my friends and I decided to go for this Pepperoni Pizzeria at 6 Greenwood. We got a bit lost on our the way there because the place is located in a private residential area. I love it though. It’s quiet and serene. Definitely a great place to have peaceful meal with a small group of friends. The restaurant ambiance and decor is great too. Now, Let’s talk about the food. We went there not expecting and knowing much despite the fact that it’s famous and have good reviews. Still we were skeptical of how good can it be. 5 of us order a Family Pizza. It’s a freaking 21″ size pizza! And the our surprise, we can actually order 2 flavors in one pizza. I was like wow! We ordered Pancetta and Suprema. So then our pizza came, yet another pleasant surprise. Earlier before the pizza came, we were wondering if the pizza 21″ the slices would be very big how to divide and eat. However, they didn’t really slice it like normal pizza, it was slices up in small rectangular portion. As for the pizza itself, it’s the best pizza I’ve had so far. The sausage and mushroom on the Pancetta is so awesome that I complete ignore the fact that there’s onions. And you have to understand that I don’t eat tomato at all. Well, I like tomato source, juices and all but I simply don’t eat the actual tomato. But I literally chew up every tomato that came with the Suprema slice. Didn’t pick out any of them. It’s just great. All of us were so excited. Overall, a great and happy meal. I will definitely plan another trip to try out some other recommended flavor.
Name: Pepperoni Pizzer

Price: S$ 50 for Family Pizza, (see website for more pricing)
Comment: Best pizza I’ve had so far. Will definitely recommend it to friends.
Often I think I’m smarter than most. Often I think I know more than most. Truth is I’m not. Often I’d like to think I’m calm and composed. Truth is I’m not. I’m probably just being me – childishly arrogant. Secretly, I’m deeply appreciative of those who can accept and let me be myself. My good side is probably that eventually I come to realize it and make conscious effort to suppress that personality.
Anyway, this post isn’t really about my bad personality confession. It’s more about the fact that I feel that working life in Singapore has amplified that personality and turned it into a total negativity. Ever since I start working, I begin to notice that I gradually become more and more impatient with people and easily agitated with stupidity. If I had to guide someone to do something and the person doesn’t get it right away, I somehow became frustrated and annoyed somehow. Sometime silently wondering out loud in my … “How in the world you don’t get it?” Of course all these impatience and irritation are kept just in thought but many a time, I know it shows distinctively in my harsh and abrupt tone. I feel that it’s pretty unhealthy mentally. It causes me to view the person negatively thus not working so well with him. It also disturbs me in my doing my own work. Despite saying so, the sucking forces of the work and societal stress and pressure in this country seems to be pushing everyone over the edge. Thus one needs to go an extra mile and put great effort to keep calm and be forgiving.
All in all, it goes back to the post’s title. The life here is so fast pace that everyone seems to be constantly living in a rush unable to take it slow and be patient with people around us. Not only that we constantly brood over it and become frustrated when we have to work with “slow” ones. I’m no exception. But it’s just sometime when I actually have time a little time to sit down and think, this always comes up to mind. What’s the rush? why can’t we all just take it slow and enjoy life more? A food for thought.
Premium Rush is a movie about a bike messenger in Mahattan named Wilee found himself in some serious trouble when he took on a delivery job from a Chinese lady. And yeah the rest of the show is pretty much about how he ride his way through the trouble.
I’m sorry but this movie is really bad. I’d like to think that the movie and plot itself is really bad there’s nothing much the actors and actresses can do to help it better even if it’s JGL. I didn’t enjoy it. And worse still, the fact that the movie seems to suggest that bike messenger is pretty much a job for bike delinquent to continue being bike delinquent while earning money is really bothering me. The plot is one big cliche. The Innocent good guy somehow got involve and make a heroic break out for it. The corrupted cop and the Chintatown gangsters. Movie itself is a poor and lazy output of that plot. Definitely not recommended unless you really just love seeing JGL.
Brave is a story of a princess named Merida who seeks freedom and doesn’t want to be subjected to the Kingdom’s custom and tradition. She defies her mother and want to live her life out of her own free will. So she set out to find spell to change her mother’s mind. However, things went awfully wrong. The spell turned out to be a curse and Merida has to fight her way through to find the cure for the curse.
I really enjoy the movie. I think the animation is great and character design are unique. I know the plot is pretty straightforward but I feel the voice acting and animation is so well done that I find it very touching at the emotional scene. Basically, Brave gives me everything from laughter to tears. Definitely a good movie choice for Friday night relaxation.
Finally, I get to see the Best Motion Picture of 2012. The famous Argo acted and directed by Ben Affleck. Argo is a story about an ex-filtration specialist, played by Ben Affleck, takes on a what considered to be impossible job of extracting 6 American fugitives out of a revolutionary Iran. Argo is good movie, full of clever and witty conversations but definitely not a Best Motion Picture of the year for me. Anyway, oh well, looking at the Oscar nominee line up for 2012, I can see why Argo won it.
The film, the set, and casts seems very realistic and documentary. It’s also very intense. That’s what I like about it. The show keep me wondering who the hell do them film it. A great job from Ben Affleck in both acting and directing. This guy is epic. Alan Arkin is also great in the movie. Very deserving for his oscar nominee in supporting role.
All in all, Argo is a great and intense movie. Great if you’re looking for something realistic and serious. However, some may find it too American for their taste. I know I did.
Hotel Transilvania is a movie about a Dracula daddy who’s very protective of his daughter of human especially. So much so that he built a castle-like hotel for monster only and is complete shielded from human. However, things don’t go the way he want it to be because of his daughter’s curiosity in the outside world beyond the castle-like hotel and all the old monsters. The whole movie is pretty much about over protectiveness of a parent and the rebelliousness of a teenage child. Adam Sandler who voices Dracula is the over protective dad character and Mavis, voiced by Selena Gomez, is the rebellious teenage daughter who wants to get out of the castle and experience the world despite the ugly picture fictionally painted to her by his dad.
Hotel Transilvania is a pretty light-hearted 3D comedy. Nothing special but probably a good show to relax your brain after a long stressful day of work.
