Movie Review : Escape Plan, Special ID, & Insidious: Chapter 2

It's been awhile since I last wrote a movie review! I think it's mostly because I've not been going to the cinema as often as I did. I didn't even join any free movie screening giveaways for a month or two. So, here's not one, not two, but THREE movie reviews that I would like to post today!

There's so much movie to watch these days, I've been so outdated too. So, on Thursday night, I watched Escape Plan with ze guys. The movie is about an ex-lawyer that breaks out of jails to alert the authority about their jail structure weakness. Then, one day, someone offered him to go into this "mystery" jail that nobody knows off and ask him to try to break out of it for a big sum of money. Sort of like a challenge for the hero and then later he realized that the warden that created the jail, want him inside there permanently. I think the warden just want to show who's smarter. 
The movie was actually really funny despite the genre and the seriousness it portrays. 

My rating for Escape Plan 

I honestly think that this poster did no justice to Andy On, as his face was not recognizable at all. How can someone so good-looking deserve this kind of advertising??? So here... Another poster that portrays Donnie Yen's AND Andy On's charisma. 

And on Friday, it's Special ID. It's a story about a man that was unfortunately made to become an undercover police in the midst of huge underworld gangs. The end. Okay, no. I know you're like image right now because of the short synopsis. Hahaha. But yeah, it goes like that and the story is pretty self-explanatory. What does undercover police do? Spy on the gangsters activities and then take their chance to seize the bad guys of course. 
Since I have nothing much to say on the synopsis, here is what I think of the movie. The character that Donnie Yen plays is very lovable and he's just too funny and at the same time ruthless. The fighting scenes are very enjoyable too! This is definitely a must-watch for those who understand both Mandarin and Cantonese (and Thai too maybe). 

My rating for Special ID

Saturday is scary day. I normally don't watch horror movies, but I don't know why, I really wanted to watch Insidious 2. I didn't even watch Insidious 1 when it came out. I only watched it recently when Conjuring was out (since it was directed by the same person, I thought it would be something like Conjuring too). This is a sequel to Insidious (obviously). It tells the story of Josh who wasn't really Josh because of a spirit that has been haunting him for awhile has taken over his body. *Spoiler alert* It turns out the black bride that was haunting him wasn't a lady at all. The evil spirit that dwells in Josh body was actually controlled by the spirit's memory of his crazyarse mother. I actually felt kinda bad for the evil spirit because his mother used to slapped the daylight out of him when he was really young and forced him to dress like a girl. But then I don't know why he grew up to become a serial killer though. image

This f*cking picture made me shout like an insane woman in the cinema. Thank me for ruining your day too. Okay, so the movie... revolves around many weird things.. Time travelling? Oh, my head.... Once you watched the movie, you'll understand why this spirit was haunting John and also why the events in Insidious Chapter 1 was made that way. Many things are connected. So, I think people who haven't watch the previous chapter should do so to fully understand the entire story. 

My rating for Insidious: Chapter 2
Because the movie has an unexpected story line and it revolves around spirits, soul traveler, time travelling and parallel universe. (?????) One of a kind movie. image And because it made me think, a lot.

No, I did not watch Sadako 2. This is just the props that they set up at TGV, Sunway Pyramid. Damn scary lah wei. I feel so sorry for those who needs to work late night shift at the cinema. 

Also, our first time watching in LUXE TGV, because most of the tickets for normal screening are sold out/only front seats remained. It costs us RM16 per person but we were just in time for the Special ID screening. I only realized that I can actually ask the staff to buy the popcorn and drinks for me if I'm in LUXE but I ran out to buy them myself before I knew that. There were pretty limited seats inside the hall but the chairs are super comfortable and there are even individual tables for each of us. My bottles sits comfortably in the water holder, and also eating popcorn has never been easier(?).image Next stop, Gold Class!??!? Hahahahaa... Next time!!!
I really like the new premium popcorn they serve in TGV too! Have you tried the KokoCrunch Popcorn yet??
