Movie – Ghost Of Girlfriends Past

 

Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner, Michael Douglas, Breckin Meyer, Lacey Chabert, Emma Stone, Anne Archer, Robert Forster, Amanda Walsh

Director: Mark Waters
Screenwriter: Scott Moore, John Lucas
Producer: Jon Shestack, Brad Epstein
Composer: Rolfe Kent
Studio: New Line Cinema

This is a ROMANTIC COMEDY with ‘A Christmas Carol’ spin , bearing this in mind you’ll be comfortably entertained.   Also it was a treat to see Michael Douglas in action as he is always convincing in whatever role he takes on and this was was no exeception.  There is also undeniably on-screen chemistry between McConaughey and Garner. 

There are however, two things which sort of bugged me in this movie.  Firstly in these day and age, how could so many women be smitten with such a character as portrayed by McConaughey? A little too far fetched don’t you agree?

Secondly apart from the shallow, rude and lewd portrayal of McConaughey’s character Connor, how could any woman believe such a character would be able to change after two decades of female degradation? Let alone a strong and bright Doctor? ( Garner’s character )

This movie in my opinion is worth watching at least once.

CCK Swimming Complex – Getting There…

Heard about this place from a colleague and so decided to check it out with the kids.  Boy did they enjoy themselves, and super cheap compared to Wild Wild Wet though of course the latter offers slightly more.  Apparently a few of the other swimming complexes around the housing estates offer similar experiences just not the one in Woodlands! Bah!

Anyhow here is how I got there….

1) Take the MRT train to Choa Chu Kang Station.

2) Use Exit A to Lot 1 Shopping Centre (which basically means, just walk straight as you exit the staion gates)

3) Walk through the shopping centre, cut across the taxi-stand and take bus 307 directly in front from the bus stop at the shopping centre.

4) Get down on at the third bus stop ( outside Block 754)

5) Walk about 100 metres to the right as you exit the bus and diagonally across the road. You can’t miss it! ( Or if you are standing at the bus stop facing away from the seats then it is on your left)

6) To reach the Entrance you’ll need to cut across the indoor parking lot and may your way to the 2nd floor.

If you’re not yet a fan, and unless you’re a drone to begin with then you might actually be Converted….Or should I be tacky and say TRANSFORMED! 

However for the serious Drone Critic you’ll find that this movie is not exactly excitingly new in terms of  ‘Special Effects’, the female lead is cast ever more bimbiotic, too much is better than less seems to be the approach of the Director and who cares about scripts when our pictures tells it all!

For me personally I totally enjoyed the whole movie because it was pure entertainment from start to finish!  I could even hear the teenage boys seated behind me drooling and who knows what else they did when Megan all 35 feet of her appeared on screen in all her barely convered glory! 

As for Shia, I think he did an excellent job in his character that I doubt if anyone can ever replace him.  There were also quite a few hilarious scenes and dialogue between the rest of the characters and Autobots which made it all the more worthwhile.

My two favourite bots in this movie is the new improved Optimus Prime and the gorgeous Silver Corvette Sideswipe! What’s yours?

 

Oh baby!

Oh Megan baby!

 

Isabel Lucas Woo hoo!

To Be Six Again…(Mid-Week Jokegram)

(An Oldie but Goodie)

A man was sitting on the edge of the bed, observing his wife, looking at herself in the mirror. Since her birthday was not far off he asked what she’d like to have for her Birthday.

‘I’d like to be six again’, she replied, still looking in the mirror.

On the morning of her Birthday, he arose early, made her a nice big bowl of Lucky Charms, and then took her to Six Flags theme park.. What a day!
He put her on every ride in the park; the Death Slide, the Wall of Fear, the Screaming Monster Roller Coaster, everything there was.

Five hours later they staggered out of the theme park. Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down.

He then took her to a McDonald’s where he ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a chocolate shake. Then it was off to a movie, popcorn, a soda pop, and her favorite candy, M&M’s. What a fabulous adventure! Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed exhausted. He leaned over his wife with a big smile and lovingly asked, ‘Well Dear, what was it like being six again?’

Her eyes slowly opened and her expression suddenly changed. ‘I meant my dress size, you retard!!!

The moral of the story:
Even when a man is listening, he is gonna get it wrong!

Another Blonde Joke

A gorgeous young redhead goes into the doctor’s office and said that her body hurt wherever she touched it.
“Impossible!” says the doctor. “Show me.”

The redhead took her left finger, pushed on her chest and screamed, then she pushed her elbow and screamed even more. She pushed her knee and screamed. Likewise she pushed her ankle and screamed.
Everywhere she touched made her scream.

The doctor said, “You’re not really a redhead, are you?
“Well, no” she said, “I’m actually a blonde. How did you know that?”
“I thought so,” the doctor said. “Your left finger is broken”.

NO SPEAKAH DE ENGLISH

A bus stops and 2 men get on. They sit down and engage in an animated conversation. The lady sitting next to them ignores them at first, but her attention is galvanized when she hears one of them say the following:

Emma come first. Den I come. Den two asses come together. I come once-a-more! Two asses, they come together again. I come again and pee twice. Then I come one lasta time.’

The lady can’t take this any more, ‘You foul-mouthed sex obsessed pig,’she retorted indignantly. ‘In this country, we don’t speak aloud in public places about our sex lives.’

‘Hey, coola down lady,’ said the man. ‘Who talking abouta sex?
I’m a justa tellin’ my frienda how to spell ‘ Mississippi ‘.’

JOKES THAT CAN BE TOLD IN CHURCH

Attending a wedding for the first time, a little girl whispered to her mother,
“Why is the bride dressed in white?””
Because white is the color of happiness, and today is the happiest day of her life.”
The child thought about this for a moment then said,
“So why is the groom wearing black?”

A little girl, dressed in her Sunday best, was running as fast as she
could, trying not to be late for Bible class. As she ran she prayed, “Dear Lord, please don’t let me be late! Dear Lord, please don’t let me be late!”
While she was running and praying, she tripped on a curb and fell,
getting her clothes dirty and tearing her dress. She got up,brushed herself off, and started running again! As she ran she once again began to pray”Dear Lord, please don’t let me be late…But please don’t shove me either!”

Three boys are in the school yard bragging about their fathers. The first boy says, “My Dad scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a poem, they give him $50.” The second boy says, “That’s nothing. My Dad scribbles a few words on piece of paper, he calls it a song, they give him $100.”
The third boy says, “I got you both beat. My Dad scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a sermon, and it takes eight people to collect all the money!”

An elderly woman died last month. Having never married, she requested no male pallbearers. In her handwritten instructions for her memorial service, she wrote, “They wouldn’t take me out while I was alive, I don’t want them to take me out when I’m dead.”

A police recruit was asked during the exam, “What would you do if you had to arrest your own mother?” He answered,
“Call for backup.”

A Sunday School teacher asked her class why Joseph and Mary took Jesus with them to Jerusalem . A small child replied, “They couldn’t get a baby-sitter.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds. After explaining the commandment to “Honor thy father and thy mother,” she asked, “Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?”
Without missing a beat, one little boy answered, “Thou shall not kill.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~

At Sunday School they were teaching how God created everything, including human beings. Little Johnny seemed especially intent when they told him how Eve was created out of one of Adam’s ribs.
Later in the week his mother noticed him lying down as though he were ill, and she said, “Johnny, what is the matter?” Little Johnny responded, “I have pain in my side. I think I’m going to have a wife.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Two boys were walking home from Sunday school after hearing a strong preaching on the devil. One said to the other, “What do you think about all this Satan stuff?”
The other boy replied, “Well, you know how Santa Claus turned out. It’s probably just your Dad.”

—”My man doesn’t need turtle eggs,” says a poster featuring Argentine model Dorismar, “because he knows they don’t make him more potent.”

The scantily clad beauty is the star of a new campaign aimed at protecting endangered sea turtles in Mexico. But women’s rights groups aren’t so sure sea turtles need Dorismar.

The Mexican government declared sea turtles a protected species in 1990. Poaching continues, however, partly because many Mexican men believe sea turtle eggs, eaten raw with a pinch of lime and salt, are aphrodisiacs. Black market trade in adult turtles’ meat, flippers, and shells also helps keep the animals in peril.

California-based conservation group Wildcoast co-developed three posters featuring Dorismar, including this one released this week. Designed to denounce the turtle egg myth, the posters have drawn ire from women’s rights advocates, who say the saucy images promote sexual stereotypes more than wildlife conservation.
