Apollo 18 with Hydraskins

Apollo 18
 showing in Cinemas September 8

It's about NASA's abandoned Apollo 18 mission, where two American astronauts were sent on a secret expedition, reveals the reason the U.S. has NEVER returned to the moon.

in conjunction with the launch of this movie, Hydraskins
gives out Limited Edition Apollo 18 laptop skins to few bloggers.

I received mine a few days ago.

I started to cut it to fit it to my laptop size.
At first I were quite worry about how to cut it nicely but there is GRID behind the skin.
Where I can just follow the grid and cut it straight and nice.

So simple isn't it?

Next up, I will post up photos with the new skin applied.
Do check out my facebook update for 3 creative photos from babebaboon !

Date: 16 July 2011
Time: 9pm
Venue: View Rooftop Bar @ G tower Hotel

I had been given a chance by Henry Lee to had a cocktail tasting at the newly open View Rooftop Bar few months ago.

The bar entrance doesn't really attract me, but you gonna enter check out the view and environment.
Basically there are 2 areas from what I see. The outdoor and indoor area.
DJ console will be located at the outdoor area.

Outdoor area where you can view the KLCC

Indoor area where you can hear the blast music

Cocktails are mainly served with Absolut Vodka.

Bartender with 5 giant cocktails.

Absolut Strawberry Basil Smash, Pineapple Cardamon Martini, 
Cinnamon Martini, Passion Tini, South Beach, Apple Rosemary Martini

I personally love the Pineapple Cardamon Martini, love the sour taste in every sip!
I almost get wasted, as shots are given for us.
Luckily I manage to control myself

I get to meet up few of the bloggers which I seldom see them like few months already.

Rise of The Planet of The Apes movie review

Date: 2 Aug 2011
Time: 9pm
Venue: GSC @ 1 utama


Directed by: Rupert Wyatt
Produced by:Amanda Silver, Rick Jaffa, Peter Chernin, Dylan Clark
Written by: Amanda Silver, Rick Jaffa
Starring: James Franco, Freida Pinto, Andy Serkis, Tom Felton. David Hewlett, Chelah Horsdal

Will Rodman (James Franco) is a scientist, currently residing in San Francisco, who is working on a cure for Alzheimer's Disease by performing tests on apes. The first test subject is a chimpanzee, named Caesar (Andy Serkis), whose parents had been captured in Africa.[5] Rodman's "cure" not only repairs brain cells as they expected to, but it genetically modifies Caesar's way of thinking to create a new breed of ape with human-like intelligence. Caesar learns unbelievably well, but human authority orders him to be locked up. However, he eventually proves to be smart enough to escape from his cage and releases an airborne-strain of the cure among thousands of other apes (the ones that are caged with him), making them as intelligent as Caesar. Thousands of apes begin to foment revolution. Soon, war breaks out between humans and apes. Rodman may be the only one able to stop them before the ape revolution ends with the apes succeeding, humanity being driven to extinction, and apes becoming the most dominant species on Earth.

Personal Comment (may contains spoiler, read at your own risk)
Computer Graphics
CGI apes created by Weta Digital from motion-capture performances.
Facial expression like angry, jealous, happy really looks alike like human. You will be focusing every single expression that the apes show especially from Caesar. That's the best element I can see from this movie.

Forget to mention that, all the CGI are produced by Weta Digital Company and they have won several Academy awards. Avatar movie are produced by them too, so this movie will be the improve version of motion capture technology used in Avatar.

Plot is alright only, climax doesn't seem excited as it is. 
Caesar bringing the whole gang back to Redwood forest
However, the intelligence after the injection of drugs shown by the ape is impressive. He is able to do what a 8 years old children will do when he is just 2 years old. His IQ level increase significantly after consuming the drugs.

A loophole found in this movie would be after Caesar and his gang break out from the "prison", it looks like more than  hundred of them ran out of the prison, but in the prison there is like enough to only accommodate hundred of them.

The wow scene

It is also quite Emotion as Caesar would really wants to go back his owner Will Rodman but he decided not to mainly because he wants to save all the other apes lock in the "prison". Caesar cried after that.

Lastly, it is really touched watching the ape finally giving humanity

Do take note the Ending on a tease for a potential sequel. Yes, there will be next episode!

Personal Rating
Plot: 6/10
Action: 7/10
Effects: 8/10
Overall: 7/10

Thanks to FlyFM as I won the tickets through SMS contest!
