by C.S.Lewis
Cast:
  • none that i know of tho... but i guess i'll put the four
  • Georgie Henley as Lucy Pevensie
  • Skandar Keynes as Edmund Pevensie
  • William Moseley as Peter Pevensie
  • Anna Popplewell as Susan Pevensie
  • voiced: Liam Neeson as Aslan

    Story:(9/10)
    I think the story is good and it fits perfectly for a fairy tale. I guess it was a children movie afterall... no blood, extra mild violence and stuffs... I wonder bout the novel... i think i'm gonna look for one here
    Timeline:(6/10)
    STRAIGHT LIKE... LIKe... LIke... Like... like... like what yeah? dunno... just sth straight so that children won't get confused i think
    Visual Effects:(9/10)
    Don't see that many graphical effects ini here... but the drawings for the mythical creatures are great! That earns an extra point for me... and the gryphons are way cool.
    Sound Effects:(6/10)
    nothing special... prolly the cinema where i watched the movie is a little it crappy... watched 2 movies there and the sounds failed in between the movies... ARGH!
    Soundtrack:(--/10)
    haven't found one yet... prolly's gonna be out here sometime soon.
    Settings:
    err i guess it's complicated too cause the time for the fantasy world is literally unknown... but our characters came from the real world and it was when british were attacked by germans i think... (then it should be around WWI/II right?)
    Comments:
    watch it once... not twice... i'll get extremely boring... and if you are still like a child (like myself) you'll find yourself in tears :p
    Overall:(7.5/10)
    worth while... cool creatures... no action... great story... just watch em you'll see

    Resident Evil: Apocalypse

    Cast:
  • Milla Jovovic - Alice (the same appearance as the 1st RE)
  • Sienna Guillory - Jill Valentine (and you think Lara Croft is hot... here's my heroine)... she played in Love Actually (I forgot which one she was tho...) and she's a blonde Brit
  • Oded Fehr - Carlos Olivera

    Story:
    Almost exactly like RE3 on consoles... the plot is almost the same tho... the timeline and everything... but each scenes leap too fast that you cannot really think about what just happened and how... but if you played the game, tis movie is not so bad compared to the 1st one... Although I prefered not to play the game... cause then I won't have expectation and be satisfied with this movie... and Jill... DAMN! She's HOT!
    anyway the story is about the Raccoon City that were attacked by the escaping zombies from the secret underground bio-weapon development (T-virus) of Umbrella Corporation, The Hive. The city is immediately sieged and blocked by Umbrella itself and some citizens are not allowed to escape the perimeter after the infection of the zombie reaches the border. Our hero from the 1st RE, Alice woke up in a hospital in Raccoon City (the ending scene of the 1st RE). She felt something different in herself... she feels stronger... our second hero, Jill Valentine (WOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!) is an agent of S.T.A.R.S (a special forces like S.W.A.T.) and the only survivor of the Raccoon Mansion incident at the Umbrella hidden facility. Alice who was a survivor from the Hive incident, was captured with the other survivor Matt after they escaped the Hive. However, Matt was infected with a deadly T-Virus and his whereabout is unknown. Meanwhile at the city, S.T.A.R.S team who were fighting the zombies were cornered. Carlos Olivera, and some of his friends have succesfully escaped the zombies and they journeyed to find the exit from the city. Phew... the story is just too large to be contained in a 120 minutes movie... I still think this movie should be 3 hours long... just watch the movie... the story is amazing if you saw the 1st RE.

    Visual Effects:
    Standard

    Sound Effects:
    Awesome... Dolby 5.1 surely works...

    Soundtrack:
    ROCK YOUR FUKIN MIND!

    Settings:
    Raccoon City, sometimes between 2001-2002... most of the movie is a one day story except a few flashback and the fast forwarded ending

    Comments:
    Great sequel... hot Jill :p and cool Nemesis

    Overall: 9/10 cause it was a great thriller sci-fi action movie :)
