Singapore Adventure: June Movie Adventures

Since I have arrived in Singapore, I seldom go to the movies anymore. I've been here for a year, but I think I've only been to the theaters not more than 5 times.

But this month of June, the Cookies have gone movie crazy. Hehe.. We've seen several movies this month - 4 already - The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Kung Fu Panda, The Happening and, just yesterday, Get Smart.

Kung Fu Panda. It's definitely one of the movies that will get you out of your house to see in the theaters. The trailer they ran here in SG really did the trick for me and my Cookie. The storyline is engaging. The animation is flawless. You'll really feel for Po Panda and his personal challenges. The other animal characters also had a hand in building up the interest in the story. Funny. Touching. And action-packed. Hehehe... Will definitely get it when it comes out on video. :)

Get Smart. Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway didn't really click as a "love team", but their comic timing may save the movie from crashing to the ground. It is hilarious and doesn't require much brain power to watch. And so, it is a good topping to a stressful and long work week. Dwayne Johnson has surely transitioned to be typecasted as "the good guy turned bad guy". Hiro Nakamura a.k.a. Masi Oka of the Heroes TV Series debuts in this film, as far as the Cookies know. Hehe... The action in this movie is engaging, the humor and casting is reminiscent of Rowan Atkinson's Johnny English. Not one of my personal favorites but it would always be a nice laugh to watch again.
