Watching Storm Warriors With Witch And Saucer

Posted by : foongpc | Monday, December 21, 2009 | Published in


After our dinner at Bangkok Wasabe, Saucer suggested we go watch a movie. We decided to watch Storm Warriors at Cathay Cineleisure near The Curve.

Not exactly the kind of movie I had in mind but it's OK. I preferred to watch Avatar, but too bad it was not shown in cinemas yet.

At the ticket counter, we could not find suitable seats for the 10.30pm show, so we had no choice but to go for the 12.30am show instead! I have absolutely no problem with that as I am a night owl, but I really did not know how both Witch and Saucer would fare.

So what did we do in the meantime? Well, we walked around the Curve's Street walk, and took photos like bloggers usually do.

It was Christmas mood at The Curve!

More photos would be posted in my Christmas post. For now, let's move on.

We decided to sit down for a drink at Winter Warmers while waiting for the movie. Witch and Saucer ordered this fruit cocktail drink.

I went for this drink - I think it's called Iced Latte or something - it's a combination of latte, green tea, and milk topped with whipped cream and beans. I hope I got it right!

Look at those beans on top! Well, the drink was not too bad! But at RM9.90, I don't think I would drink it again anytime soon. Haha!

Snapped a photo of Witch in front of Winter Warmers.

So how did the movie fare? If it's any indication, Witch slept during the movie! Haha! Can't blame her as both she and Saucer had a long tiring day.

I found the movie to be pretty crappy. The storyline was lame, and I just don't understand what the heck Charlene Choi is doing in the movie! She just did not fit in - I am not a fan of her anyway - together with Aaron Kwok and Ekin Cheng. I think the Pang Brothers (director and producer) are getting from bad to worse. I only liked their horror movie The Eye starring Angelica Lee.

OK to be fair, the movie was pretty good in its CGI and special effects. And the fighting scenes were not too bad. But that's about it. Just don't expect clever dialogues and intriguing plotlines.

By the time the movie ended, it was already 2.30am. I had to bid goodbye to Witch and Saucer. It's nice meeting up with you guys! Let's do it again next time, shall we?

Guess what? I could not sleep that night. I blamed it on that tall glass of Iced Latte and to a lesser degree, the crappy Storm Warriors.

    I am not a fan of Chinese movies. I hardly watch any these days.

    Would you believe it that I had not stepped into the cinema for months (ever since the outbreak of H1N1)? I watched the Proposal during my flight to Perth. And that was a crappy one.

    SK, it's dinner lah, not lunch! It's good to be a light bulb once in a while, haha! And I don't mind doing it again!

    I didn't plan to see Storm Warriors but there are simply no other suitable shows to see at that time. I would have gone for Avatar but it was not released yet : )

    lina, yeah it's Christmassy at The Curve. I also don't really like HK movies - in fact, I think this is the only HK movie I watched for 2009! Haha!

    Actually the story is not lame lah, just tat most of us did not read the comics so we do not know wats happening. They have to squeeze over a hundred ep of comics to one movie. The movie i think only HKs understand lol^^

    Learned a new jargon from you today - 'CGI' ..think it is "computer-generated imagery" or something else? [TQ to wikipedia]. Xiexie.

  33. HalfCrazy said...

    Hmm, I wonder, why don't we have 12AM shows here in the Philippines! Well, we did have, when New Moon premiered. Also, I want 24 hour malls! More jobs for everyone but it's gonna suck a lot of electricity.

    Those are some good shots, the place really looks beautiful and lively!

    Your drink looks yummy but you're gonna have to forget it because of the price, haha! And the ache it brings to your stomach.

    Much Love,

    Ehh I didn't really slept throughout the movie! :P Only bits and pieces here and there LOL But I guess you're right, the female characters don't seem to blend in with the story! And YES of course we should do it again! (I meant hanging out, not watching Storm Warriors :P) :) MERRY CHRISTMAS!
