Whooompalooompah! I’ve recently checked out 2 movies at the premier screening of the odd alien movie District 9 and the focktastically distrurbing thriller Orphan. Just for your info, District 9 is a movie banned in Malaysia – or so I’ve heard.
Cathy & I camwhoring with Esther BUT NONE OF US COULD STAND HER
Let’s begin with Orphan. I think it opened doors to the public today? I initially thought it was some kind of child abuse/family-oriented show just by looking at the posters. But I came out from the theaters traumatized and mentally disturbed instead. HAHA
Myself with the rest of the early birds at the movie premier
The beginning of Orphan was as gruesome as any exposition could get. Think aborted fetuses covered in blood shoved to the middle of the screen. Throw in lots of anguish screaming and wailing. Ugh.
Plot then continues with the parents, Kate & John, bringing back 9 year old Esther from the orphanage house. She was superficially pleasant, well-mannered and always in her best behaviour.
That’s Esther ‘checking in’ to her new room. I liked how their son Daniel called Esther a freak. Heck yeah, she is. The lil girl Maxine is mute and partially deaf but equally adorable all the same.
There was a very hair-raising twist in the story. No one expected it, though I had a slight uncanny feeling when I saw all the men’s photographs kept in her diary. Did I get you thinking that she is a maneater? Hmm.. oh and, she ain’t really 9 years old you know.Go figure.
She paints beautfully, no doubt
But place all her artwork under a UV light and it will make your eyes widen and probably mentally disturb the weak hearted. Makes you think twice about what they actually teach in Art classes now.
Oh hey that’s me!
Those white roses are named Jessica Remember the dead foetus I told you about? Yeah, Jessica’s ashes were sprinkled in those roses.
And Esther the bloody orphan killed me, again. Aren’t I supposed to be already dead? You should see how she killed me. It made mommy go hysterical and other series of gory accidents made her ballistic.
My fave line in the show was:
“You’ve got it all wrong ma’am!Saarne Institute is not a child orphanage”
“It is a… Mental Hospital”
I CAN’T STAND HER!
Esther insists that there was a bsolutely nothing wrong with her. Check out the video of an exclusive interview with this bright child star, Isabelle Fuhrman
Let it load while you check out the rest of this entry
One of the parts which I went “Ohhhhhhhhh fockkkkkkkkkkkk” and literally squirm in my seat was right after this scene –
I ain’t telling you what happened to the nun
But you can more or less guess after seeing the picture above
Oh and, here’s note from me. This movie ain’t to be shown to minors as it has excessively violent scenes, pornographic images and vulgarity.
Threatening poor Maxine
I mean come onnn. How wrong can this movie get? It involved little innocent kids for chrissakes. Dropping the F-bombs everywhere and just the mere sight of seeing murderous children with revolvers, hammers, plugging off life supplies in hospitals, kerosene & a match is just so dreadful.
But that’s the fun part ain’t it? I think Chucky could use a new owner.
Oh and guess who was my guest for this movie screening?
I brought mom along!
Hey if Pixie Lott can travel all around the world for her tours with her mom, I don’t see why I can’t bring mom to watch the movie with us. After all, she was down in KL for 2 days on a business trip.
I didn’t crop out Howard on purpose. You should see his expression in the background!
Mom, Zues & I
Buddy Samuel aka Romeo
Picture credits to Jackie Taken right after the movie screening
Now we’re done with Orphan, are you ready for District 9?
I know I owe buddyVincent a District 9 review instead of going on & on about a certain romeo who saved me from a flat tire. But that’s another story yea?*winks*
Prior to the movie, I thought it was some lame robotic science-fiction show that didn’t even make it on big screen. LOL but I was wrong! It was that good and graphic till it was banned in Malaysia for reasons beyond me.
I reckon it was because it had some similarities to the racist Apartheid govermental declarations, the District 6, which discriminates the blacks in South Africa
I LOLed when he was called Christopher Johnson didn’t expect a creature like that to even have a name …let alone a name like that.
Basically, the MNU officers had no other better things to do than to enter the District 9 and disturb the peace of the aliens where technically bears the sign NO HUMANS ALLOWED. Poor them had to be evacuated to District 10 which is further away from their current location.
Funny how they try to have proper conversations with aliens that look like aluminium tin cans taking form of a prawn or any other crustaceans that you can think of. Or maybe a lower grade version of Decepticons.
It serves the main character right as he was nosy enough to rumage the aliens’ property, thus accidentally spraying himself with an icky fluid known as ‘The Black Liquid’.
which gradually turned him into one of them a metal prawn
The ending was especially touching though – where he was handmaking a flower outta scrap material to miraculously deliver to his wife. She’s a mortal, mind you. It was kinda saddening, as she lost her husband to the metalprawns forever.
Well not forever though, Christopher Johnson the very well-mannered metalprawn promised to return & save in in 3 years time.Heh. What a promise! Would there be a sequel to this movie?
Group Shots! -No prawns allowed in this district-
Buddies & I just before the premier
Will be heading for a special preview of the science-fiction thriller Avatar tomorrow morning. It’s release date will be in December 2009, and from the directors of Titanic – so it better be good!
It was in 7pm in the evening and there was a huge commotion at Laundry Bar, The Curve. What could that be? The one and only giveaway was its distinctive bright yellow splashed all over. DiGi Music Unlimited takes center stage today!
I was invited to this launch along with a few other bloggers. We had a pretty good time there – despite the fact that many of us were a lil crestfallen. Apparently the special appearance by the All American Rejects turned out to become nothing but a rumour!
Sorry – I totally lost the plot NO ONE TOLD ME WE WERE SUPPOSED TO MAKE A FACE!
They fed us well and pumped up good music.
That’s his REAL height /smirks
There was a light dinner buffet with yummalicious dessert! Perfect for all the sweet tooths out there. Check out some of my faves of the night
Loved the capsicum, sausage & tomato combo
Yummsters go to the mini chocolate brownie & cheese tarts
Despite having a wide variety of other food which was enough to go around. Nigel seemed to be on a very strict diet. His entire plate was empty except for a single stick
I wonder who he’s trying to impress?
My, what thick Dolly Parton lips ya’ got there pal Sexxay can I? haha
Caprice was in the house to kickstart the event with an opening performance! His usual crew of masked men in formal – semi formal attire would break those beats with their show-stopping dance moves.
I wanna go DOWN DOWN DOWN DOWN DOWN A remix of Akon – Right Now (Na-Na-Na)
This is where I shut my ears as an entire hoard of tweens would prolly go gaga over him whenever he has a performance anywhere
Still, I must give him a thumbs up for having a really good on-stage personality as well as having his own interactive methods of crowd control. Kudos!
Then Albern Murty came upstage to give us an introduction! Pretty nice name if I have to say so myself. Anyhoos, he’s the Head of Products & Segment Marketing. Three cheers for ya!
Together with the Head of Segment Marketing, Mr. Koay, the both of them started giving a pretty good sharing session on what this new entire digimusic.com.my was all about and what privileges & benefits it has in store for its users.

Those fab songs matches his bubbly personality!
Soon after that, we had a group tour on those DiGi Music Unlimited kiosks. It was a laptop and we were asked to compete against one another to see which group manages to follow all the instructions to download and share music in the fastest time.

Ohmy. What a candid. Gahh. Pardon the stupid expression.
In the 1st round, we were the winners! Glad as we may be, all there’s left to do is to see if the 2nd round of contestant groups did not beat our time. Unfortunately, they did! RAWR. As a reward, they bagged a pair of spankin’ new headphones each. Congrats pals!
