Movie reviews

17 again

I know i'm abit far behind ;) weekend was a lazy one so i spend the whole noon watching DVDs. watched Land of the Lost but gave up after 30 mins. no doubt its hilarious but too fake to me. so i switched to this.

Synopsis:

At 17 Mike O'Donell(Zac Efron) was on top of the world; he was the star of his high school basketball team, and was a shoo in for a college scholarship. And is dating his soul mate, Scarlett. But on what's suppose to be his big game wherein college scouts are checking him out, Scarlett(Leslie Mann) reveals that she's pregnant. Mike decides to leave the game and asks Scarlett to marry him which she does. During their marriage, Mike could only whine about the life he lost because he married her. So she throws him out. And when he loses his job, he returns to the only place he's happy at - his old high school. And while looking at his high school photo, a janitor asks him if he wishes he could be 17 again and he says yes. One night while driving he sees the janitor on a bridge and apparently jumps in and he goes after him. When he returns to his friend, Ned(Tyler Steelman)'s house, where he has been staying, he sees that he is 17 again. He decides to take this opportunity to get the life he lost.

rating: 3.5/5
Zac Efron is quite cute though ;)


Taking of Pelham 123

As recommended by a friend, we watched this last weekend.

Synopsis:

Together with a few partners, Ryder(John Travolta) hijacks a subway train in New York and requested 10 milion dollar in return. Walter Garber(Denzel Washington) who works as a computer dispatcher was told to bring the money in order for the hostages to be released. in the end, Ryder gets away but still, suffers the consequences of his acts.
its very action-packed, but the story is abit boring.

overall rating: 3/5
