Family, Friends & Movies

7 Jan 2011 – A Nice Gathering

Thanks to Les & Ivy for a wonderful evening with family and friends. As always, the food and wines are excellent. Good to see the CHUAS and the TRIBBES, was it already a year ago when I last saw Kiera

The Tourist**** remake of a French movie, beautiful scenes of Venice, lifestyle of the rich and glamorous ie Angeline JOLIE & Johnny DEPP but entertaining with a curve-ball ending. Romance for the ladies, thriller for the guys and drama enough for all 🙂

A Better Tomorrow** a Korean remake. Well acted but too much violence for the eyes, more a guy flick with lots of actions where rejection, betrayal, revenge and mobster are concerned!

The Ghost Must Be Crazy** SIN flick, annual in-camp training meets a very on Commander. As they’re about to play a prank on the Commander as a form of revenge for all the rigorous training they had to put up with, a series of strange things happen.

Love and Other Drugs*** is based on Jamie Reidy’s memoir Hard Sell: The Evolution of a Viagra Salesman. Maggie, an alluring free spirit who won’t let anyone – or anything – tie her down. Meets her match in Jamie, whose is a lady charmer. Maggie and Jamie’s evolving relationship takes them both by surprise, as they find themselves under the influence of the ultimate drug… love!

True love is like a ghost; everyone talks of it, but few have met it face to face –
