Movie of the Day

This morning, I had a test on MAT 251, code for Operations Research. For the whole semester, I pretty much clueless about the subject. Even my body was in the lecture, my mind teleported itself to dreamland most of the time. So, for me, this subject is like one of those sure-die victims from Final Destination movies. Just a matter of how gory my death gonna be.

And speaking of death, after the cutthroat test, me and my coursemates went to Queensbay to watch, what else, The Final Destination. Originally was to go watch Laughing Gor but due to the conflict of time/space conundrum, we decided for Final Destination.

Final Destination 4 French Poster by philippe1978.

I remembered watching the first movie ways back when I was in my early teens, I think, and thought it was quite a nice flick but as more and more sequels kept chunking out, the death scenes became more and more creative what with the advancement of CGI and stuffs. So, we get more blood and guts and brains and whatever organs popping out in exchange for so-so actings and storylines. The first movie, plane crash. Second, highway crash. Third, roller coaster crash. Now, Nascar race crash, which is a cheat as Nascar and highway both involved cars.

Like any of the past movies in the series, Death has a unique ways of getting his claims. As if setting up those traps and freak accidents not enough trouble, he even gives the main character a gift, premonition of sort, where he get to see what weapons Death using and all, spicing things up. Maybe Death get the thrills from it, watching young people running around trying to save others.

Really, watching movies like these make you think lives are really fragile and there are just about anything can take your life away. However hard you may try, if Death really wants you on his table, you can't really do anything as there's no escape from Death. Shit! I kinda spoil the movie, didn't I? Aiyar, surely you know what to expect from a movie named Final Destination, right?

By the way, I think if you watch this movie in 3-D, it might be more fun. Though I watched it in normal cinema, I could see how those scenes will pop out from the screen and make it more enjoyable, which is very important as the movie really didn't offer anything new though I like the scene in the cinema where people get killed. I appreciate the humor the director had set up. And try notice the character names passing through in the credit. There's one named MILF and MILF's husband. Haha.

Oh yea, one thing does make me ponder. Why on earth you classify a movie 18 SG if you were to cut scenes where people curse? I mean, if you saw your friends/boyfriends/girlfriends die in some freakish ways, you won't say, "Oh, my, how gory." Of course it's " Fuck!/Son of the bitch!/Mother fucker!" It's the norm, people!

AHAHAHA your review of this movie was sooo funny...I definitely cannot believe they put MILF as a credit, thats too crazy!! The cursing thing is also very true haha, wow i'm laughing really hard at people dying...woops better watch my karma :O

成亿 said...

haha...at least got people appreciate the humor in it...XD

i'm not too sure about the MILF as i didn't catch it in the credit but i definitely saw MILF's husband...surely MILF would appear as MILF's husband is even more of an extra than MILF...

as long you don't laugh in a real accident, karma is fine with it...doubt karma gonna punish you for laughing at CGI of people dying...
