R.I.P. to MJ and Farrah

Michael Jackson, The King Of Pop. he's one of the biggest popstar in history. His famous moon-walking was so cool and one of it's kind. His unique style of singing and dancing. His albums are best-sellers and his face is one of the most well-known in the world. I'll always remember the boy I heard of in 'Ben', one of my favourite song he sang when he was a kid. His compassion for the whole world with songs like Earth Song and Heal The World. Not forgetting his brilliant dance moves and hits in Thriller, Beat It, Billie Jean, Black or White, Smooth Criminal, and many more songs. His songs touch your heart like You are Not Alone and I Just Can't Stop Loving You. I'll always remember him as a great musician rather than the scandals that evolves around him.
He is one of a kind. I may not be old enough to remember a lot of his songs but I listen to quite a few to say he writes great music. I'll forever remember him as a wonderful performer and musician. Michael Jackson died at 50. It's a shame he died so early. I believe he still has a lot to show the world and prove them wrong or maybe it's better that he is finally in a place he can truly be himself instead of being someone the public wants to see. He's just a man who never wants to grow up and be a boy he couldn't be when he was a kid. In memoriam of MJ, forever will we remember your music.....may you finally found the place you fit in.

Farrah Fawcett, the original Charlie's Angels. The beautiful girl-next-door and a favourite actress of mine died at 62. Her unique breathtaking smile that has encaptured my heart. Her fight with cancer gave inspiration and courage to millions. May she rest in peace.

Blood: The Last Vampire

Starring Gianna and directed by Chris Nahon.

***Spoilers ahead***

The movie was just okay. It tends to be a bit draggy at times. Especially the fight scene where Saya takes on all those demons alone. Fight scenes can be fun and interesting but when something like that drags for more than 20 minutes (I think it was more...I didn't take down the time) it can be a bit boring. It makes it less believable that she can fight alone without help for such a long long time even if she is a 400 years old half-vampire that looks 16.

Saya (Gianna Jun) looks 16 but is actually a 400 years old hafling, half vampire half human. She survives on blood too but she ain't like the monsters she kills. She doubts herself thinking she might be like them but what she has is a soul, a human soul that makes her special. The main motive she kills vampires is for revenge against Onigen who killed her father hundreds of years ago. The whole movie is okay mainly because of Gianna who looks good fighting and her acting skills are not bad. The monsters sucks. Especially the flying ones. They look fake to me. It also turns out that Onigen is actually Saya's mom and while Koyuki looks really beautiful as Onigen, the black ink blood was a bit weird for me. Black ink blood on her white pure kimono....totally spoils the whole outfit...haha. There's also Alice McKee (Allison Miller) in the movie who should at least help kill vampires rather than just screaming all the time. Every single time she sees one she screams...well that maybe the fact she's a human and never seen a vampire before but her screaming is way too much for me and I thought she learnt some moves in kendo class??

Ohh, of course in the end, good triumphs over evil and Saya defeated Onigen. Yet she is trapped in some kind of mirror world which the movie didn't over much explanation to stupid viewers like me who don't understand why she isn't out from there or how she gotten in the mirror with Alice and why Alice is the only one out from it and currently in a physcho ward being given evaluation for her mental health.

P.S. I think the movie is from an anime or manga if I'm not mistaken. I'm not sure but I know there's an anime playing on Animax recently with the same title. That might be it.

17 Again.....

Directed by burr Steers and starring Zac Efron, Matthew Perry, Michelle Trachtenberg, Leslie Mann, Sterling Knight, Thomas Lennon and so many more.

In 1989, Michael O'Donnell was a star basketball athlete with a birght future ahead. He seemingly had it all. Right before the championship last game with the scout watching his game, his girlfriend Scarlet informed him she was pregnant. In that moment, he made the decision to throw everything away (including basketball and a chance at a scholarship) and proposed to her.

Twenty years later, Mike's life was a disaster. He is separated from Scarlet and staying with his geeky but millionaire, best friend Ned Gold. His career is at a standstill and his kids Maggie and Alex want nothing to do with him. He visits Hayden High School to reminisce about the life before he made that decision and while he was there, he encounters the mysterious janitor who ask him if he wishes he was 17 again and he said yes. On the way home, he fell from a bridge and is magically transformed back into his 17-year old self.....

The whole movie was interesting and funny. Zac Efron was really cool and very handsome. His eyes are mesmerising.....haha.O.o He's a good actor too. I really love the part at the court where he was holding a paper telling Scarlet about his true feelings. I was really touched at his words and proves Zac is really good at acting. You should go and watch it as it is really a fun movie which will make you laugh and also make you feel touched..
I found this at IMDb. It's a dialogue in the movie.
Mike O' Donnell: Scarlet, before you go through this, I want to remind you of September 7th, 1988. It was the first time that I saw you. You were reading Less Than Zero, and you were wearing a Guns 'n' Roses t-shirt. I'd never seen anything so perfect. I remember thinking that I had to have you or I'd die... then you whispered that you loved me at the homecoming dance, and I felt so peaceful... and safe... because I knew that no matter what happened, from that day on, nothing can ever be that bad... because I had you. And then I, uh... I grew up and I lost my way. And I blamed you for my failures. And I know that you think you have to do this today... but I don't want you to. But I guess... if I love you, I should let you move on. (pretending to read a letter to Scarlet in divorce court)
