A Day Out with the Queer Ranter

Twas a rather rainy Tuesday that I was reminded at the sight of sunlight, that I was to be on an outing with the one and only, Queer Ranter. I booked him earlier on for karaoke but his highness has bad throat and decided to just stick to movies. After several changes and alteration to our plans, we ended up in Low Yat as I needed to find a cheapo charger for my handphone and later proceeded to Time Square for a movie.

Initially, we planned to catch The Dark Knight in Pavilion and later head off for choir but my lazy bones persuaded me to go for Times Square. To my horror, the Dark Knight was to be screened at 6.10pm and I would have to leave by then. Without much persuasion, I was drawn into temptation and embarked on a movie marathon. Since War of the Dragons were the only movie available at 3, we purchased our tickets while MR QR was busy with his job placement letter in which got him in stitches as he was left on a cliff hanger about where he is to be sent. ( Tanjung Malim? Sg. Petani? Merbok? Any Obscure Place?)

As we were seated, we were soon joined by 3 Iranians consisting of a teen, an adolecent and a kid. They pretty much were the previews as they were busy chitty chatty-ing that got QR fired up and by showing who has the balls, stood up and shush the trio. The guy who was seated next to them had to move and they didn't bother if it was their sadly, they ignored it and in fact later while both of us were giggling, the specky no good gurl shushed us in return... Kids... Haish...


Dragon Wars or War of the Dragons or D War? No wonder the several name changes...

But we didn't mind, the movie was so bad that we didn't mind that lil bit of noise. It was to the point where the storyline sucked and no sufficient thought was given into the plots nor the facts. It was like Anaconda cum Star Wars and it was so screwed. Even the love story didn't seem real. It was all mushed up. To tell you how bad it was, all you need to do is dig up your old files on Bad Movies and you have a new top scorer. The only bearable part was Jason Behr yet, without his emo ala Roswell look, he is nothing...


There is that puppy face...

Then we have a half hour to run to borders to get a lil something for a friend of QR while he chats on and on with someone else on his phone, I realised today, the fact that he calls himself QR for the fact that he Rants... A LOT!!!


I come to Kill....

So then comes the Good Movie, Batman; The Dark Knight. Man. I was on the edge of my seat from beginning to the end. Though the sound system sucked a little due to some technicalities but the movie was awesome. Every scene is memorable. The entire concept has many layers to it and requires one to truly enjoy the movie and think... The actors were committed and they have brought their acting to the Next Level. Heath Ledger did a stunning performance as the Joker (eh, no joke ok!) while Christian Bale did a fairly good job in bringing the dark side of Batman. Aaron Eckhart was surprisingly charming as Harvey Dent, the super sweeper DA and was pretty versatile in bed... opps I mean with his role. Batman is no longer just a comic book movie that is all about kicking ass or about special effects. Its really a movie worth the money and the time spent.


You need me to fill you up from the back?

I don't mind being filled up by you...

The story goes much deeper than any movie goes into and if you think Iron Man is the movie of the Season or of 2008, think again! With the amazing twists to it, it would be a sin for me to leak it out but I beg you to give it a chance for I assure you, its as good as its gonna be.
On a scale of 1-10, I give it a 10
On a scale of 1-50, I give it a 50
On a scale of 1-100, I give it a 99.5.
I don't believe in perfection, but this is as good as it's gonna get!
