2 Foreign Flicks..

My Sassy Girl


Recently just rewatched a favourite Korean flick & also checked out the movie "Che".

My Sassy Girl has been an all time Kollywood film which i have enjoyed watching countless times. Not watched the Hollywood adaptation yet. It actually started as an internet serial in Korea. As most Korean movies that i have enjoy there's always elements of LOVE & STOMACH CLUTCHING HUMOUR!!

Source from Wikipedia:

My Sassy Girl (엽기적인 그녀; literally, That Bizarre Girl) is a 2001 South Koreanromantic comedy film directed by Kwak Jae-yong, in which the lead protagonist's chance meeting with a drunk girl on the train changes his life. It is based on the true story told in a series of love letters written by Kim Ho-sik, a man who initially posted them on the Internet and later adapted them into a novel.

The film was extremely successful in South Korea.[1] When My Sassy Girl was released throughout East Asia, it was well received in the entire region. An American remake, starring Jesse Bradford and Elisha Cuthbert, and directed by Yann Samuell was released in 2008.[2] A Japanese drama adaptation with Tsuyoshi Kusanagi and actress Rena Tanaka as the leads started broadcasting in April 2008.[3]

Che was good. DO watch.. Mr. Del Toro has never let me down!! :)

Source from Wikipedia:

Che is a two-part 2008 biopic about Marxist revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara directed by Steven Soderbergh and starring Benicio del Toro as the title character. Taking a cinéma vérité stylistic approach, the pictorial diptych comprises two merged films entitled The Argentine and Guerrilla. Each part is intentionally illustrated with differing approaches to narrative linearity, camerawork, and aspect ratios; with such duality intended to be reflective of the two military campaigns' divergent outcomes. The first part, The Argentine, focuses on the Cuban revolution from when Fidel Castro, Guevara and other revolutionaries landed on the Caribbean island to when they successfully toppled the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista two years later. The second part, Guerilla, meanwhile focuses on Che's futile attempt to bring revolution to Bolivia and on his early demise.

Featuring: Mob's Crib

Hey peeps, i jus wanna share some cool & sometimes twistedly inspired artwork from Mob's Crib. He does visually inspiring & sometimes humourous posters of current affairs in Malaysia (political satire).

Mob yr posters of late... "NICE". My FAVE at the moment must be the RPK face mask one. Very functional.. :) The "no oral sex one"... hehehhe.. no comments..

Go here for more from Mob's Crib.


Was considering create a post or not today as i was surfing through MalaysiaKini.

I watched at their YouTube the latest vid on "Perak Crisis: What will happen in the next 48hrs?". Also went to Lim Kit Siang's English blog & viewed the video which was the confrontation between UMNO youth ppl & Karpal outside the Parliament. This sparked me off looking for the videos of Parliament sitting(believe they call it the HANSARD te actual physical archives) on YouTube.

Clicked the search box and keyed in "malaysia parliament" clicked "search"... Lo & behold what you see in the pic was the search results. Check it out yrself here.

As a Malaysian i "segan" seeing the 1st search result "
Malaysia Parliament asking Chinese Get Out from Malaysia -
this is the rasist parliament in Malaysia(UMNO) ...", as being Chinese by ethnicity makes me "meluat" seeing all these antics.

To be fair i did a search of the below "singapore parliament", "indonesia parliament", "thailand parliament" & "phillipines parliament". However, i don't see these kinda of antics in out neighbours search results.

Seems like Malaysia is the most sensational & 3rd world if i were to jus based my personal opinion from these results.

Its a sad state of affairs we're in... Our only reprieve is watching the reality TV series titled "Politics in Malaysia"
