We have been watching Prison Break Season 1, 2 & 3 on DVD and we need a break! So we went to the cinema recently to watch both of these movies.


Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian is very funny, much funnier than 2006's Night at the Museum. I thought Hank Azaria was going to annoy me to no end as the Egyptian Kahmunrah, but he's actually more entertaining to watch than Stiller or the rest of the returning Night cast! It's a comedy adventure that the whole family can enjoy. Go to this film looking for utter silliness and good-natured humor and let you be transported into the unbelievable! I really wonder if there are people willing to sacrifice their business success to become a night guard in a museum.

***


Terminator Salvation is one of those movies Ralph has been waiting for! This time around, Christian Bale plays John Connor, who is among the leaders of the resistance in the humans' war against the machines. The battle continues in this spectacular and gritty fourth film in the Terminator franchise that quantifies the power of the human heart in all its forms. Well, the film is propulsive, barely stopping for breath as there are exciting chases, suspenseful close calls, edge-of-your-seat battles and adrenaline-charged set-pieces. Oh wait, this action-based sci-fi film has been rated PG-13. Who would have thought? McG, director of the Terminator Salvation, told SCI FI Wire that he shot and deleted one scene featuring a topless Moon Bloodgood standing provocatively in the rain. Hmm.. will that scene be an extra on the DVD?

I have watched terminator with my wifey. It is quite awesome. relatively speaking of course. About Night at the museum...I have been contemplating whether or not to watch it. Since you said it is better than the 1st one...I should go then. :-P

First?

JL said... @ 8/6/09 7:29 PM

Oh wow I'm first!

Yeah Kahmunrah was really very funny indeed. I thought that most of them were funny too, especially the bird-head soldiers that Kahmunrah summoned. When they saw giant Abe coming after them they terus lari into the hole again. That was most lol! :-D :-D :-D

Terminator Salvation is a 2009 American science fiction film written by John Brancato and Michael Ferris and directed by McG. It is the fourth film in the Terminator series, and stars Christian Bale. The trailer of Terminator Salvation is brilliant! I just watched it! Can't wait for the movie! To watch Click Here! Hope you ll too love just like i did!

foongpc said... @ 10/6/09 7:36 PM

Watched Terminator Salvation yesterday. Quite a good movie yes? Lots of non stop action! But I think this time travel from future to change the past is getting on my nerves! The story will never end if you can keep manipulate the past!! :)
