Happy 38th Birthday, Victoria Beckham!

It's April 17th! Happy 38th Birthday to Victoria Beckham -- a wife of a soccer star, mother of four, former singer turns fashion designer! I made a little something for her. :)

Technically, it's April 18th here in Brunei, but we're hours ahead of LA's time so... and Mrs. Beckham might probably still be in celebration mode. ;)

I Just Watched "Don't Look-Look"

I just got back from the cinema. Mi Amor and I watched "Jangan Pandang-Pandang", which stars Zizan, Sara and some other actors/actresses who I don't really know, and I don't have any urge to research who they are. I do know the veteran actors in this: Azhar Sulaiman (my mother loves him!) and Jaafar Onn.

I think this is the first time that I found myself liking Zizan as an actor. I think he acted beautifully in Jangan Pandang-Pandang; there are times when I think he over-acted, though he was decent in most of the scenes, especially throughout the first half of the movie.

I'm giving this movie a 3 out of 5 stars. I was surprised to see the decent acting by all the actors involved except this one actor who I have NEVER seen before. It's rare to see Malaysian actors in their best portrayal these days, especially when it comes to comedy. The "comedians" tend to over-exaggerate their tones and actions which annoys me a great deal.

This is the part where people should be aware that I'm about to blurt out spoilers for those who haven't seen this movie.

Anyways... Back to the actor who I have NEVER seen before... He wore leather jacket throughout the movie... he played the guy who I think (if I'm not mistaken) was one of Marsha's brother. Ugh! I've never wanted to throttle a guy this much! He's SOOOO ANNOYING!

The storyline at the beginning was good, but after the part when this annoying guy showed up, the progress dramatically went downhill. Everything make no sense at all... especially the part where it was revealed that Marsha and Bob (Azhar Sulaiman) were siblings. What's the point of having the scene where Marsha was caught "stealing" the box by Bob and had her afraid of this Bob person when he was her BROTHER... and NOBODY was there to witness their facade. Big, big plot hole.

Nothing much to say really. I really do think that Zizan is the reason why I enjoyed this movie. Best effort by this comedian, so far. Well done! *thumbs up*

Outrage Responses After Victoria's "Innocent" Statement

'We always joke that we have this fabulously gorgeous 17-year-old model who is 6ft-whatever and I say, "OK, I'm going to put it on - I stand for the general public here",' Victoria Beckham, 37, told Harper's Bazaar.

When I read this article, I laughed it off. I never thought that her comments would get rises out of certain people which also include two, apparently, celebrities.

Katie Price used her column in the Sun on Sunday to hit back at Victoria Beckham, claiming she is deluded. She wrote, 'I think all this Californian sunshine is sending Posh senile because she is a size 6... And if she had read the papers this week she would know that the general public like eating pasties and the average British woman is a size 16. They can't afford Posh's £1,000 dresses let alone fit into them.'  

Now... I found this comment amusing. For one thing, I really thought Victoria was kidding when she made that comment, but even if she's not, she's entitled to think as she pleased. I don't plan on posting this Katie "Big Boobs" Price's picture on my blog. She's pretty... ugly. If you don't know who this person is, google her. I honestly didn't know who this girl is, so I took the liberty of googling her and what I read and saw amuses me. Her whole body looks really fake, especially the boobs and lips and the way she commented on Victoria makes me think of this person being fat. I'm FAR from size 6, but I'm not offended by the statement. It looks innocent enough to me. It looks to me that this big boob person is an attention seeker, and since she knows Victoria is famous and probably she thinks most people would agree with her... *shrugs* And the bit about Posh's dresses being expensive... What's it to her? Despite being expensive, her dresses are still sold out within a very short amount of time. From the looks of the photo of this Big Boobs person, her attire didn't seem affordable for some people too. She ought to look in the mirror before saying stuff like this.

Ok... Disagreeing is fine, but calling Victoria senile definitely got a rise out of me. I do think that Victoria loves getting attention, but I don't think it's a crime. Not when she gets it with her own hard-work... and I do think Victoria is a nice person, which is why I don't think she deserves being called names.

Anyways... Just a few hours earlier, I read another 'celebrity' commenting on Victoria's statement. A Kerry Katona (don't know who she is, and I'm too lazy to look her up) says that 'Victoria lives on steamed fish and raw vegetables and wears a size 6 dress... That's not normal... She doesn't look healthy, she always looks so gaunt and skinny.' -- Um... So what? Some people only eat vegetable, so what's it to her?

Seriously... Leave her alone!

Saving Hope Under The "HQ" Microscope

I got goosebumps! Once again, Durance Magazine has new dirts on Saving Hope and I'm getting pretty addictive with this show... and it hasn't even been aired! And as it turned out, it's not just about Erica! How astounding is that?!

According to DM, TBI has an article on the show. It's interesting... and it makes me even more eager for the premiere.

The following is an extract from the article:

Many TV critics and other observers complain that medical dramas tend to cover the same ground. “Whether the characters are dressed in blue or white, it’s always the same format,” says Bertrand Villegas of TV consultancy The Wit.
“Part of what I thought was really insteresting about this, and a different way into a medical drama, was this whole idea of faith,” says Noreen Halpern, the outgoing president of dramatic programming for eOne Television.
“Medical shows have a history of succeeding. There are great life and death stakes built into the fabric of a medical show. But then you add this twist of faith and spiriatuality — Is it just about science? Is it just about medicine? — And I think that is a really interesting way into a very traditional franchise.”

To read the complete article, you can go to Durance Magazine post HERE.

Well... The only Medical drama I watched was a Hong Kong TV Series. My parents used to watch ER ages ago, and they seemed to really like it. Then again, my dad is also quite impressed with House; he only watch it whenever he happens to see it while he flips through channels. My dad isn't a romance drama type of a person, so... *shrugs*

Any-who... For some reasons, I got the feeling that this show is going to be huge. Just a hunch! Could it be my ultimate favorite show? Could it get me fanatic over a TV show once again? The romantic aspect easily capture a big part my heart... but if the main relationship goes down to the triangle route like I mentioned in my previous post, I'd be very pissed. Seriously, I'm sailing on THAT ship again! We'll see...

By the way, DM has a High Quality poster available on their webbie. It's soooo... pretty! Two Ericas and two Michaels. Just fabulous!

Entertainment One Unveils Saving Hope Poster!

It's been a while since the last time I check up on my notification emails and I got a big surprise! Entertainment One (eOne) unveils the poster for their upcoming show with Erica Durance and Michael Shanks, "Saving Hope", which I did mention on my earlier post. Unfortunately, the poster is only available in a small size (humph!) but, we can still see how gorgeous Erica looks in there. There are also Michael Shanks and Daniel Gillies (I presume) in the poster. I hope to see the bigger version soon.

Having a look at the new poster, it got me thinking. I have a feeling that there is going to be a love triangle between the three doctors (It's somewhat obvious, really), which I will hate. I really, really HATE storylines with couples breaking up *cough* Rachel/Ross *cough*, so I do hope that Erica Durance's character, Alex, will stay loyal to ONE man and I want that man to be Michael Shanks' character (Charlie)... if... only if their chemistry is as good as it looks in the trailer.

This hospital-themed show reminds me of a Hong Kong's TVB series, Healing Hands, which aired on a Malaysian TV Channel sometime ago. I'm so in love with the first season of the series, solely because of the coupling (mind you, I'm always a romantic!). Anyways... The show went on for season 2 and 3, with NEW characters and they KILLED of one of the main girl from the first season. The second season gotten weird and I stopped watching after they killed the girl. The phenomena still irks me to this day. So I do hope that won't happen in Saving Hope, which I already have faith in.

Saving Hope premieres June 7th on NBC. (June 8th Brunei time).
