quick links.




mini-reviews.

war of the worlds
Strangely, the computer generated aliens in this movie felt more believable than both Tom Cruise and Dakota Fanning, who spend most of the time looking shell shocked or screaming hysterically. The overall effect is a cold, clinical exercise in extermination, ending as suddenly as it began.

hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy
This movie reminds us that instead of using special effects to blow stuff up, we could use it to bring to life one of the wackiest sci-fi rides of all time. Brilliant use of Flash animation (for the guide itself) and Marvin is just...too cute to take seriously. Remember now, always carry a towel and whatever happens, don't panic.

So long Douglas, and thanks for all the fish.

batman begins
I guess you can say this is movie truly captures the spirit of Batman's beginnings, because it is as weak as Bruce Wayne was before his transformation into the world's greatest detective. In the end Christian Bale and his sidekicks Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine were just undone by Liam Neeson, Katie Holmes and the rest of the cast. Perhaps next time...

sarpinos
Didn't know anyone else delivered pizza, other than Pizza Hut and Dominos. Generous amount of toppings and cheese make it hard to pick up the phone and go back to dialing 1-300-PIZZA

just thai
Looks like just another Thai restaurant on the outside, but once you sit down, you'll notice that everything is done 'just right'. Wait staff were attentive and seemed genuinely happy to be there, and the food took 5 minutes to arrive (!). They didn't have any pandan chicken, so we settled for beef noodles (which tasted like real beef) and pineapple fried rice (flawless). Can't wait to go back and the other stuff.

anjappar
Never heard of Chettinad cooking, but RM15 for a set meal of rasam, lime juice, briyani, rice, fried chicken, two curries, yogurt, papadam and chapati is an incredible deal.

kopi time cafe
new take on the old-style kopi tiam, complete with modern pricings. porridge for seven bucks is pricey, but the curry noodles are okay. What exactly is a coffee cow?
