GSC 4DX Experience

4DX is an experience like no other and thanks for GSC Cinema, is now available in Malaysia. It will be officially open to public on the 25th January 2018 but it’s only at GSC Paradigm Mall JB. Lets hope they will bring one in KL.

The 4DX has some simple guidelines to ensure you enjoy it:

  • You must be at least 3 1/2 feet tall and 4 years of age to experience 4DX.
  • Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by their parent or guardian.
  • Children should be seated near their parent or guardian.
  • No one is permitted to share a seat or sit on another s lap.
  • Once the feature has started, remain seated at all times unless you are exiting the auditorium and if so, be mindful of the foot rests and use caution to avoid tripping.
  • Do not stand on footrests.
  • Do not bring valuables into the auditorium without taking measures to ensure safety and security.
  • Do not bring hot liquids, such as coffee or tea, into the auditorium and all cold beverages must be in a covered container that fits in the cup holder.
  • Do not eat or drink during intense scenes when the motion chairs will be most active.
  • Do not wear delicate clothing or any articles that may be adversely affected by the 4DX effects, and take measures to protect clothing against wind, rain-like conditions, bubbles, and strong scents.
  • Each 4DX chair is designed to hold up to 230 lbs. If you have unique body proportions and do not fit comfortably in the 4DX chair, please ask the attendant at the theater for further guidance.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Review

Yes, it is good. As good as The Empire Strikes Back or A New Hope? Not really, but I must say it is close. In terms of acting, it is better. Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill are at their best. Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Adam Driver deliver great performances all the way through.

The Last Jedi is everything you want from a Star Wars movie. It is beautiful, touching, exciting, surprising and even mindblowing from time to time. It is definitely a great surprise, because I thought it will be similar to “The Empire Strikes Back”, it has some familiar tones, but all in all it is an impressive movie in it’s own right.
characters, there is text at the beginning that will fill you in on the history of the events in the past and what has taken place during the past time. But even though that information is given to you, your experience just won’t be the same without having viewed the first film and remembering the emotional core of it. Rey’s character uncovers mysteries and secrets from the past, inevitably involving Kylo and the First Order while training with Luke. Quite honestly, that’s the plot in a nutshell and the specifics of the film will lead to ruining your experience, so let’s get technical.

The score by John Williams is wholesome. There’s really no other way for me to describe it. A wonderful mix of brand-new as well as familiar motifs and themes. Despite the great score and visuals, however, The Last Jedi manages to make your jaw drop several times with some of the most surprising moments in the saga thus far- there’s a line that Luke Skywalker says in the film, that is the title of this review and is most definitely applicable to this film: “This is not going to go the way you think.” And that it is not, Rian Johnson has assured that with this story that’s continually unexpected, a story that indeed changes the way you look at these films, which is precisely what it shares in common with The Empire Strikes Back, and that’s every bit a good thing.

On Body and Soul – Review

Unusual love story in an even more unusual setting, namely a slaughterhouse. The two main protagonists, the financial director and a newly appointed quality controller, are both not socially streetwise. Their personalities with their deviance are very well portrayed, letting them stand out from cardboard characters that appear in some (other) love stories.

Though Maria has extreme difficulty with physical contact, she strives to overcome this limitation with her vivid imagination and immense desire. The mutual and expanding dreams tug at the pair, body and soul, but so do their fears, obsessions and predilections for solitude.

All in all, the screenplay demonstrates very well how the two main protagonists get attracted to each other, and how the rest of the slaughterhouse staff behaves around them. They are not exactly outcasts but not an integral part of the social structure either, so gossip and unfriendly comments are to be expected. The slow progress in their courtship is juxtaposed with the two deer in their respective dreams who come closer together in tiny steps. It is all very unusual, but one never gets the feeling that it is too far-fetched.

Richard Armitage the new Wolverine?

You read it right. Richard Armitage is all set to play as the clawed mutant, Wolverine. But it’s not all you think it is, Marvel Entertainment announces that Richard will be playing the character of Wolverine but in a podcast.

It would be a 10-episode series and will be available exclusively on Stitcher and later on will be available on other podcast at a later date. Wolverine: The Long Night will follow agents tracking a serial killer in a small town in Alaska, who have just found their main suspect, a man known only as Logan.

“Their search leads them on a fox hunt through the mysterious and corrupt town,” according to Marvel’s press release.

Wolverine: The Long Night will be released on Stitcher in spring of 2018, and will hit wide release on other platforms in fall of 2018. All we have to say is, well played Marvel.
