Harry Potter 4: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Not entirely spectacular movie but just nice. Well, wizards after all are almost like normal humans. In this movie, we get to see the transformation of a young boy to a young adult and also changes that happened between him and his friends.

As I said before, it's not spectacular because the plot is sort of predictable. By almost half of the movie, the audience can roughly predict who is the culprit between all the disturbances in Hogwarts school.

But, if you're looking for eye-candy and short love story, this movie will be definitely fulfill that your taste. In this movie, it becomes even more apparent (in case you didn't watch Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) Hermione does have little more something for Ron as well as Harry. Eye candies, hmmmm, you'll see the massiveness of environment in Hogwarts school, also Quidditch cup stadium and the intresting fireworks.

That's my short review of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

back to work..

A great saturday morning and night!

Yay, it's my off day today. I'm going out for breakfast with my friend. What a beautiful day!

Yay, my ex-secondary school classmate is having an open house today. Quite nice, got mutton barbeque too. Too bad didn't have much time talking to him also. He was busy with his ikan bakar and all that. I went with my another classmate, and his family.
All in all, nice experience , could've been better if other classmates joined in.

Talked to my collegemate, Ms. CA. It was a quite nice experience, I joked, go crazy , and talk nonsense with her. Haha. I missed talking to her. Too bad I can't find anyone as smart, witty, talkative and nice as her. Pheh.. ladies I met are quite "butchy" , sad to say.heh heh.

Should be going to bed now. Ready for tomorrow class.heh.

Need for Speed : Most (Un)Wanted?

Well, after playing the new Need for Speed: Most Wanted. I hardly see the reason this game will be the MOST WANTED racing game for this year.

Graphics, yeah it's beautiful, prettier than the one before.

Audio, yeah loud, heavy rock stuff just like its NFS series before.

Gameplay, well , you do have something new, something similar to bullet-time, which you slow down to make those AMAZING moves. You have all the cops pursuing you ala Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit style.

Controls, I find the car will wobble left and right even you're driving a seemingly straight line.(Simulating realism?)

Well, the thing it felt kind of like Burnout 3 without the cops.

Conclusion: Not impressed, new features just don't seem to kick butt at all. But, hoping that the retail version will be better than this.

Admiration of war heroes

I've playing a lot of games since I was small. 5 years old I guess?. I think it's 7 years old. I usually just played games but never have I admire the hard work the programmers, artists and developers put in to their games. When I got older, I start to look at the hard work of these people behind the games. Maybe the computer game market started to become more and more competitive. Games nowadays are becoming more like movies, which extensive research and planning should be done before creating them (maybe not all types of movies).

Anyhow, some of games that really "opened" my eyes are the recent WWII games,namely
a) Brothers in Arms, (BiA)
b) Medal of Honor : Pacific Assault Collector's Edition.
The developers have clearly put a lot of effort on creating them. It was as if I was really there in Pearl Harbor during the Japanese attack(MoH:PA). You can almost experienced what it was liked to be in a war. In BiA, you're a Sargeant which commands team(s) of paratroopers which landed in German in the eve of D-Day invasion. Honestly, you just have play these 2 games to see the dedication of the people behind these games.

I admire them and also those who are potrayed in these games. I admire the soldiers who have put their lives on the line to defend what they believed. Anything can happen in a war, a person u just met a minute ago, could be dead the next minute. It makes me wonder how they managed to survive through the war and wonder will I have courage as they had when the time comes. I wonder.
