Depicting the events after the Gamma Bomb. 'The Incredible Hulk' tells the story of Dr Bruce Banner, who seeks a cure to his unique condition, which causes him to turn into a giant green monster under emotional stress. Whilst on the run from military which seeks his capture, Banner comes close to a cure. But all is lost when a new creature emerges; The Abomination. Written by Graham Kroon

A cure is in reach for the world's most primal force of fury: THE INCREDIBLE HULK. We find scientist Bruce Banner, living in shadows, scouring the planet for an antidote. But the warmongers who dream of abusing his powers won't leave him alone, nor will his need to be with the only woman he has ever loved, Betty Ross. Upon returning to civilization, our brilliant doctor is ruthlessly pursued by The Abomination -- a nightmarish beast of pure adrenaline and aggression whose powers match The Hulk's own. A fight of comic-book proportions ensues as Banner must call upon the hero within to rescue New York City from total destruction. One scientist must make an agonizing final choice -- accept a peaceful life as Bruce Banner or the creature he could permanently become: THE INCREDIBLE HULK.

The Happening Movie

Download movie link
video links:

Synopsis (without giving away the twist): Something is happening. The end. Seriously though, something is happening that is making rational human beings lose their minds and kill themselves in very, violent ways. Two teachers (Mark Walberg and John Leguizamo),
a dippy woman (Zooey Deschanel), and a cute little girl (Ashley Sanchez) must escape and hide until whatever is happening, stops happening.

Okay, being elusive doesn’t make it seem all that exciting. Let’s just say the cause of the happening is not only freaky, but in my mind kind of plausible. M. Night again, has caused me to re-examine human nature and it’s impact on the environment. But, I’ve said too much already, so let’s stick to what you’ve already seen in the previews.

Preview Spoiler #1: ”It’s raining construction workers!” This scene (along with another which I will get to shortly) made the entire movie. The fear in that constrution worker’s eyes, the sight of those workers falling, and the sound (which you only get in the movie) is absolutely unnerving. I’m usually not a jumper or a speak-out-louder, but I jumped and said rather loudly, “Dear God!”

Preview Spoiler #2: “This hairpin looks so good in my neck.” Eh. It was freakier in the preview, but after seeing the preview eleventy billion times I was bored when she actually did it.

Preview Spoiler #3: Floating lawn workers. I’m getting chills just thinking about this again. Actually, they aren’t floating. The scene is shot from a moving jeep through the windshield. These guys have actually hung themselves with their own garden hoses and the jeep is driving underneath them. Wow. The most moving and haunting scene in the whole movie happens right after.

Preview Spoiler #4: “Oh, look! A lion!” Cheesy with a capital CH! Come on, M. Night! You’re better than slash and gore, horror flicks. Leave crap like this to the amateurs.

Preview Spoiler #5: ”It’s such a nice day that I think I’ll mow myself.” See above comment.

Preview Spoiler #6: ”Mommy, there’s a creepy woman looking in my window.” Eh. When I found out why she was looking in the window (here’s a clue: it “happened” to her), the scene fell flat.

Why wasn’t this one of M. Night’s best flicks? Plot holes and cheesy dialogue. My personal favorite: The Village. The plot is so well crafted that I believed right up until she jumped the hedge. And, If you think I’m stupid for not seing the ending coming, than you’re too smart to be reading this blog.

The Happening. Wanted to believe, but there were too many holes that kept me questioning the intergrity of the story. How did the people who survived, survive? Why did it just stop? How did it stop? Did it actually stop? Instead of answering these questions, the movie tries to divert attention away with superfluous dribble. I don’t care that Mark’s fiance has commitment issues that take the near extinction of the human race to fix. I don’t care that there is a family of hillbillies who will shoot anyone who tries to take shelter in their home. I don’t care why the creepy, hermit woman keeps a decaying doll on her bed. Stop trying to make me look over here, while you try to piece together the plot.

Where’s there’s drivel, bad dialogue is sure to follow. Even an actor with superb skills, would have to work overtime to deliver some of the cheesiness written here. We’re talking about Mark Walberg and John Leguizamo here. Don’t get me wrong. They’re good, but they ain’t no Deniro, or Hoffman, or even Hopkins. Downright clunky in places, the dialogue stops anyone from loosing themselves in the story.

Since we’re talking about actors, Zooey (how the hell do you say that?) delivers a good performance, adding a bit of comic relief in a tense situation. For what it’s worth, John did good job with the script that was handed to him. And Mark, well, he’s Marky Mark how can you not love him. Yeah, sometime his delivery falls flat, but a good director should be able to fix that. So, I guess the real person to blame for this movie’s shortcomings is M. Night himself. Writing and directing can take a lot out of a man. Maybe, he should just stick to one.

Evolusi KL Drift The Movie

Directed by :Syamsul Yusof
Starring : Fasha Sandha, Farid Kamil, Syamsul Yusof, Diana Danielle, Aaron Aziz, Ikram Dinzly
Distributed by : Skop Productions Sdn Bhd, Grand Brilliance Sdn Bhd

Evolusi KL Drift is a Malaysian action film influenced by The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. The film is scheduled to open in Malaysia on 3 April 2008. The movie tells the story of Zack and Sham, close friends who share a passion for drift
racing. Though the sport is popular with men, Zack’s girlfriend (played by Fasha Sandha) took up the sport and became competitive in it. Two other racers, Joe and Karl, feel threatened by their female counterpart and their inability to convince others to join the sport, leading to a showdown race between Zack and Joe.

Jeraul said : Watch this if you liked: "Impak Maksima" and "The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift".

As Syamsul's directorial debut, this movie is a very promising start to what could certainly be a very successful career in showbiz for him. The opening theme song, and in fact most of the music throughout the film, is slick and pumping in the style that today's teens (and the target audience) know and love, and very fitting to the whole feel of the movie. The cinematography is respectable and is perfect for such an action film, with suitable camera angles and techniques. Overall, the whole feel of the film is polished and pleasing, if not slightly vacuous as well.

Despite the fact that most of the cast members did a stellar job in portraying their characters, there wasn't much room for them to develop further than the stereotypes they depicted. While Fasha was genuine and delivered a performance with good timing, she was always angry and teary-eyed throughout the film, with a smattering of laughs and smiles here and there. Farid Kamil too did well, but seemed too good to be true, and at the other end of the spectrum, Aaron Aziz's character seemed too tough to be true. Still, such characters occur not only in local films but international ones with multi-million dollar budgets, so this is forgivable.

Syamsul himself, who plays Fasha's boyfriend Zack, was by comparison quite wooden, and his character just came across as a bloodthirsty bully who deserves no sympathy. Eye-candy Diana Danielle is gorgeous, but her acting leaves much to be desired. Playing Fasha's best friend, she is always serene and calm throughout the film no matter what is happening, like someone high on drugs.

The editing of the film is slightly choppy and in parts makes some scenes end awkwardly, and as usual, the dubbing isn't first-rate either - a problem that plagues Malaysian films endlessly. However, the sound quality is good for the most part, and better yet, the action scenes are positively brilliant. The choreography of the drifting is extremely good... in fact, a bit too good, because it ends up feeling like a stunt show and not an actual race on the roads of KL taking place. Everything is too coordinated and it loses the gritty realism that it tries to achieve, but then again, it is awesome to watch and certainly the drifting scenes are the best part of the movie.

Still, that is about all the movie has to offer at this point. There are no scantily clad, bodacious babes as it is a local production, so all we have to drool over are the cars, really. While there is a storyline going on about love triangles and rivalry, the audience really only cares about the cars and who wins the ultimate race. Any attempts at drama are half-baked and predictable, but one thing I have to give this movie props for is that there is no formulaic happy ending. We never truly find out what happens with the love triangle and a lot of questions are left unanswered, although this was possibly done to allow for a sequel to take over from there. Who knows? In the meantime, this is a film to be proud of, and hopefully Syamsul will keep on trying for bigger and better things.

Daily Box Office Analysis for June 23, 2008

This week begins with a whimper as Monday box office results reveal that last week was better. Despite two new debuts from high profile actors, top 10 box office had combined receipts of $17,716,720, down 14% from last Monday’s $20,586,002. There are two reasons for this. The first is that this week’s openers are not as strong as last week’s openers. And the second is that last week’s openers are dying faster than Dane Cook’s career.

Get Smart finished in first place for the fourth consecutive day and, barring something unforeseen, will keep this streak alive until it falls to third place on Friday. The Steve Carell comedy earned $5,119,453 yesterday, which is a total
representative of 85% of The Incredible Hulk’s business last Monday, $6,010,045. I say this as a point of reference for making the statement that Get Smart had a much better first weekday than Hulk. The explanation is that the spy spoof earned only 70% of the weekend box office of its comic book counterpart. Closing the gap this much percentage-wise is not wholly unexpected given Hulk’s now-proven lousy legs, but it’s one of only three true positives in yesterday’s top ten.

To my surprise, one of the other positives is The Love Guru, the Mike Myers comedy rejected by North America en masse. The film follows up on a dreadful $13.9 million opening weekend with $2,649,125. This may not sound like much, but it is representative of 19.1% of its initial three-day total. For comparison’s sake, Get Smart is at “only” 13.2% of its weekend number, a performance we have already described as good. Now, I want to stress that it’s a trick of box office mathematics for smaller films to have better hold-over in terms of percentage declines, as has been discussed on the site many times. A $40 million opener is not the same as a $100 million opener in this manner nor is it the same as a $14 million opener. There is a tiering system at work, but even allowing for this, a 19.1% holdover on Monday is strong for almost any title. I hate Myers as much as the rest of you do, but this is a positive after a week of negative press for him. Of course, it’s also far too little, far too late.

The final positive in the top ten is the impressive staying power of Kung Fu Panda. After falling only 34.2% in its second Monday last week, the title performs even stronger at the start of week three. A decline of only 27.2% gives it a running total of $158,861,401. It should be around $169 million by the weekend, meaning it has switched from a possibility to beat Madagascar to a strong likelihood. And, on a personal note, I highly recommend the movie to all of you, particularly the readers who are also parents.

In terms of last week’s openers, we chronicled their plight all of last week. The data points all added up to hefty weekend declines, and the prophecy was fulfilled when The Incredible Hulk fell a stiff 60% and The Happening fell off a cliff with a 66% drop. Both films continued their disappearing acts with Monday box office. Hulk dropped 56% to $2,649,125, mirroring its Ang Lee predecessor. That title fell 60% on its second Monday to $2.461 million. In terms of where both films were at after the same time frame, 11 days, The Hulk was at $103.1 million while The Incredible Hulk stands at $99,704,555. If we account for box office inflation, 2003 Hulk is 22% ahead of 2008 Hulk in terms of actual tickets sold.

Starring: Angelina Jolie, James McAvoy, Morgan Freeman, Terence Stamp,
Director: Timur Bekmambetov
Producer: Marc E. Platt, Jim Lemley, Jason Netter, Iain Smith
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Release Date: June 27, 2008
Writer: Chris Morgan, Derek Haas, Michael Brandt based on series of comic books by Mark Millar and J.G. Jones

Based upon Mark Millar’s explosive graphic novel series and helmed by the stunning visualist director Timur Bekmambetov—creator of the most successful Russian film franchise in history, the Night Watch series—Wanted tells the story of one invisible drone’s transformation into a dark avenger. In 2008, the world will be introduced to a superhero for a new millennium: Wesley Gibson.

25-year-old account manager Wes (James McAvoy) was the most pathetic, cube-dwelling hypochondriac the planet had ever known. His boss chewed him out hourly, his girlfriend cheated on him daily and his life plodded on interminably. Everyone was certain this weakling would never amount to anything. There was little else for Wes to do but wile away the days and die a slow, clock-punching death.

I'll really want to watch this movie at cineplex....

Getting More Clicks For Your Adsense Ads

An interesting post by dated 8th June. Seems like he can get 4 clicks with only 14 ad impressions in his Adsense ads by simply doing only one thing. He places a large 336 x 280 adsense box immediately under the post title in his blog. To prevent charges that he is going against Google Adsense T.O.S (“Ads
shouldn’t be placed under a title or section heading in a way that implies that the ads are not ads”) he colors the boxes a bright yellow. Thus, there is no way anybody can mistake this ad box for actual blog content. Also there is no way anybody can miss out this ad box on the way toward reading the content of the post, which is placed immediately beneath the box.

If Google allows this, this could represent another way to get more clicks on your ads. This should considerably help those bloggers who depend mostly on Adsense ads for income. To read the full article, click here.
