popcorns + movie...

I've always loved movies...well, you could call me a movie junkie...unlike my husband who loves old black and white p.ramlee movies, i prefer the usual (good) english-language movies...

don't get me wrong, i do love arwah tan sri's movies...but takdelah sampai sanggup tengok berulang kali. but i have to say that the seniman agung title fits him perfectly. until now, no one in this country could challenge him. he can sing, he can dance, he can write and compose music and boy, he can act - not just comedies but serious roles as well...

anyway, as i mentioned before i've always loved the movies...tho, masa kecil, i don't to go to the panggung often...

for me movies isn't just a way for me to relax, but gives me an insight to the world...how creative some people are...ok, not to mentioned that some actors/actresses are gorgeous... :-P (i still remember how i had the biggest crush on the stars in Mighty Ducks!)

as far as i could remember, among my first wayang yang tengok was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle The Movie with my Pak Teh Rosli and cousins Dayang and Reza; and Free Willy with my mom, bro and cousins from my mother side..

Free Willy was the movie that made me want to be a marine scientist...hence, the marine science degree i got from Up*M...altho takde rezeki nak jadi saintis, at least i berpuas hati that i learnt something that i really wanted and love....(tetibe teringin nak pergi diving lagi..)

aiyoh! selalu terkeluar topik...ishk..

back to movies....i remembered the long queues everywhere when Jurassic Park first came out....i can't remember if i watched it dekat panggung but i do remember the baris panjang...

since i don't often tengok wayang masa kecil, the family selalu sewa video tape kat this one shop in melawati...macam dvd/vcd "tak sah" masa sekarang, dulu it was video...having the vcr was such a bliss...

almost every week my bro and i would pester papa to visit the video shop...we would spend a long time choosing the movie we wanted to watch...not just that, the shop is sebelah je dengan the clinic yg we all pergi whenever we are sick..so, lepas checkup, mmg tak sah if tak visit that shop.

i would always ask the tauke if movie so and so ada or dah sampai and at times, he would let us know movies terbaru yang ada...bringing home 3-4 tapes each visit makes us happy everytime...

since there's no more vcr players, the video shop has closed down its business as well....

then there was the laser disc...which i had the chance to watch it over my Pak Teh & Mak Teh's place whenever i lepak there...

then came the vcd...so like normal people out there, carilah vcd yang "mampu milik"..masa dulu pakai beli je, tak pikir sama ada nampak kepala orang ke, or boleh dengar orang ketawa or makan ke..nampak je cerita yang macam best, beli...

lama-lama jadi bijak sikit and memilih la juga..nak movies yang clear je...we had tonnes of those vcds...and i kept them in a box which was trown away during spring cleaning the store room just before dahlia was born...

dvd's of course ada banyak di rumah...dulu, sma juga, pakai beli and now....pilih yg dvd 9 je..hahaha...

of course, as we are growing up, the visits to panggung wayang pun bertambah esp bila dah dapat kebenaran nak keluar with friends and u have your own money (or masa zaman sekolah, kumpul duit belanja)...

so far that i remember, i watched cerita seram sekali je kat wayang...itupun sebab nak temankan my friend, apin...truthfully, i didn't even watch the movie..i was too scared, so i tidur dalam panggung. hahah...can't remember what movie it was...ala-ala final destination..(ke mmg f.d..ntah tak ingat).

apart from the usual romantic-comedy, i don;t mind watching cartoons or kiddie movies di panggung... :-P

since i am spending a lot of time at home, the idiot box has been my company this last 2 months...so, selalu la tgk the movie previews yang disiarkan...

and here's some of the movies i really-really want to watch this year...

Sabb, i read (about) half way buku a&d..lepas tu, disebabkan sifat ketidaksabaran, i skipped a few chapters (haha..) until bahagian akhir.

so, i pun tak sabar nak tengok the movie *wink*. if it keluar bila dahlia dah besar sikit, maybe canla go watch at the mvies with tank..mcm date nite or something (i wishla).

if not, as usual, DVD...

Bee, i think i'm going to get BW dvd nnt. i like anne hathaway since dulu...i think she's pretty!

never a fan with Kate Hudson, tho..

G, bukan EZY but Video L...dekat area-area balai polis..ironik kan satu row je..

maybe zman dulu pirate copies halal lagi..hahaha..

i pun tak sabar tgk transformers 2...my bro dah tunjuk its revies aritu..cool giler!
