Movie Review: Lucy (2014)

From imdb

Starring: Scarlett Johansson, Morgan Freeman, Choi Min Sik

'The average person uses 10% of their brain capacity, imagine what she could do with 100%'

Well, that's the tagline of the movie so you can roughly guess what's the movie about ;)
I always love Scarlett Johansson's movie and it's interesting to watch how the brain power can be boosted with just the use of CPH4. And she looks cool in the entire movie!

It's just that, I think the movie is a bit short (just 90 minutes). But overall, it's still an enjoyable movie to watch, simple storyline =)

Rating: 8/10


  1. This movie is showing here now. Is it a horror movie? If it, thank you. I love sad, touching human dramas. Would love to see Hour-long Journey.

    1. The movie explores an unsettling idea, and there's some blood involved, but nope, not a horror movie.

  2. This must be a science fiction movie then. These days I like drama.

  3. 我很喜欢这女主角,但对露西这部电影并没有很热衷,不过我还是很想看。只不过负面评语太多了,让我没有了去电影院看的冲动,所以我要下载。希望很好看!因为你的评语就不错啊~

  4. 我好久没去看电影了!

  5. I watched this. You are right, Scarlett Johansson is super cool throughout the movie! <3

  6. 我上个星期才看的,我倒是很多不一样的体验,本来也是想就这部片子写文的。负面意见不断,不过我倒是很多不一样的感想,我觉得是很让人心思的电影。

  7. Wah, so fast you watched Lucy already. I heard it is about nootropic drugs similar subject to the movie "Limitless" (2011). My grandmother is also taking a prescribed nootropic drug (Piracetam) to delay the onset of dementia as she is 98 years old now. I hope to watch this movie soon and I agree with you that 90 minutes seem to be a bit short for this type of movie.

    Have a good day,

  8. 我也是觉得时间好短,而且比我预期想像的少了惊喜。 :C

  9. I opposite with STP, i like horror movie...

  10. I haven't watch it but i not going to watch la. Bcoz my frens said i won't like it hahaha. Just based on their opinion xD

  11. wow, not bad huh, looks like recently you went for quite some movie trips?? hehehehehe.. i actually planned to watch this, because i like Scarlett Johansson, and Morgan Freeman is always a very good actor, but like you said the movie is just 90 minutes which is too short lah (not fully worth that RM12 paid for mah, haha)..

    1. but my Anay told me this is a very nice movie, so i thought since somebody recommended this, might as well forget about the 90min then go and watch lah.. but then so angry, i tried to buy the tickets online last week and kept on failing.. maybe because i've just renewed my credit card, or was it because of the bank's problem lah.. so ended up, cannot get ticket so didn't watch..

    2. i heard this movie is not just about action but rather quite philosophical and zen.. but then you said the storyline is simple?? hmmm, let me watch it probably this weekend, and see if i can see some sophistication through the simplicity, muahahaha!! wah, what am i trying to say?? so "chim" until i doubt myself~~ :D

  12. I think I get the blu ray for this one. Sounds like a horror movie but haven't really read up the story yet.

  13. I read quite a number of bad reviews for this movie therefore am not keen to watch but you kind of changed my mind. Hmm.. maybe I should try watching it.

  14. 我发现大家对这部电影的评语都很不一样

  15. Saw the preview and Scarlett looks so sexy with that eyes colour. ^^

    I want to watch this movie.

  16. sounds like very kan cheong type of movie wor

  17. When it comes to movies, I am really backdated.. I like simple shows, no need to crack head so much as in those like Da Vinci Code.. that one is very confusing..

  18. I love this movie very much as it was really based on some Tibetan Buddhism theories which explains about how a human mind could actually work powerfully. The last part where she started flipping back all the scenes to the past is really true when a human gets enlightened, they will be able to see the past and future like this. Many people have been enlightened in this world today but they usually keep it to themselves.

  19. I've been seeing bits and pieces of the trailer, and I must say that I really like the scene where Scarlett is pointing her gun at two taxi drivers and asking him if he spoke English. She shoots the one who says that he can't and immediately turns her attention on the surviving one. ^^

  20. Hi Hayley, how you doin'? Only last night I was watching a very TV movie, 'The Horse Whisperer'....a really nice romantic movie starring Robert Redford.
    And there was a young girl in the movie...I was telling my wife she looks familiar. And my wife replied, "thats Scarlet Johanson"! Holy Smoke!

    Can see you enjoy going to the movies. I have not stepped into a cinema years!
    Hey Hayley, drop going to recognize a place you've been, if I remember correctly.
    Have a nice day.

  21. I like her too.. one of my fav sexy movie stars!

  22. watched this during my flight and fell asleep. lolz.

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…

BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…
