I’ve just returned from the premier screening of State Of Play and I must say, I was pretty apprehensive about the storyline before watching it. Standing on a completely biased ground initially, here’s my review.

Heck, Russel Crowe looked like a homeless stray hobbo in the movie. God bless the hair omfg. He can’t get any shabbier even if he tried. Like seriously, what’s with the unruly hair?

A journalist CAN be immaculate too ya’ know. We aren’t all that broody. YOU need a makeover, buddy.

They even have a pretty boring poster being publicized. It failed some brownie points from me, as it didn’t catch my eye! From the poster, I was expecting some long-winded movie filled with solemn moments of people talking.

But I was wrong.
Horribly wrong.

I loved the movie!
There never was a moment where I looked at the time nor reply an SMS. It kept my attention span in such a tight grip that I realized I was sitting bolt upright in the midst of showtime. Kel Li had her legs up like a trishaw woman (omg don’t murder me)

Rachel McAdams starred alongside Russel Crowe and Ben (omg the hottie) Affleck as well. I was inspired by her determined and inquisitive nature. Those characteristics are what I see in a true journalist.

It revolved around journalists digging for a case and a story… furious editors yelling their heads off for their poor lil minions to meet the deadline. Been there, done that…heh. I totally get it, very normal.

character smileys I loved the part where he was trapped in the basement carpark with the professional assassin! That part could probably make my pulsating heartbeat put a stampede to shame.

When I got home, buddyBenj and I were talking a wee bit about the movie. Yeah, he went online to watch every movie premiering in the United States. That’s so him LOL

We came to a conclusion that we preferred Rachel McAdams the bimbo in the movie Mean Girls.
She seemed too intelligent in this movie. XD

The aesthetics of the movie was fantastic too. With excellent mis-en-scene and storyline, I’d say an excellent 20 thumbs up for this one. The company was great too, watched it with buddies Kel Li, Nigel, David, Jen, Aaron and LOL @ Thomas who had to leave halfway. *tsk tsk tsk*

Randomly, I like this picture because it
makes look like a little kid all over again

Though I don’t dig Jappy anime/manga, I’m going to catch the premier screening of Blood : The Last Vampire tonight. Let’s not hope that it’ll be another crappy vamp movie.
