Deadpool [Movie Review]

Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds, Marvel Comics, Movie Review, byrawlins, Deadpool Review, superhero, mutant, X-Men, Collosus, Negasonic
Justice has a new face - Deadpool
How do you love an superhero that is one smart ass and quick witted with  a mouth of a comedian?
I guess you just have a love-hate relationship with him, just like what Collosus and Deadpool have.

SYNOPSIS
Wade Wilson was a hired assassin that at times have soft spots for the people. He is witty and madly in love with Vanessa. Everything was coming up roses until he was diagnosed with an advanced level of cancer.
Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds, Marvel Comics, Movie Review, byrawlins, Deadpool Review, superhero, mutant, X-Men, Collosus, Negasonic
They were about to get married before cancer appears
In order to fight his cancer, he agreed to undergo an experiment that  leaves him with accelerated healing powers, disfigured skin, unstable mind and a 'darker, twisted' sense of humour. 
Armed with his new abilities, he hunts down Ajax @ Francis, a mutant that performed the experiment on him.

A hero that rides taxi to the fighting scene
Collosus and Negasonic, two mutants from X-Men were out to 'invite' Deadpool to join the X-Men and ended up assisting Deadpool in his mission to hunt Francis and save his girlfriend.

Anyone else looking for a good time?
There were a lot of flashbacks as Deadpool loves to explain events to the camera and this acts as character development scenes. And believe me, you will totally love the flashbacks! 

What will Deadpool do to save Vanessa?

MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.95/ 5.0. I love the flashbacks - it acts as Deadpool's character building. The plot was simple but the flashbacks and the fighting scenes added delight to the movie.
 
The Act: 4.95/ 5.0. Expect no less from Ryan Reynolds with his witty scripts. Parents, please e warned that there will be a lot of gory, bloody and 18XX scripts throughout the movie.

Will I watch it again: I watched it 2 times in 2 days and am willing to watch it again! Gonna buy the DVD too.

MMA - One Championship: Clash of Heroes

One Championship, Clash of Heroes, fighters, international mixed martial arts, MMA, Metros Events, Stadium Negara, Tune Talk, Under Armour
Clash of Heroes
I know that even my father would never believe me that I went to watch a mixed martial art competition as he knows that I do not like to watch the wrestling (acting much).
Thanks to Metro Events, I am no longer a mixed martial arts competition virgin and shocking enough (even to myself), I loved it!

Yes. I won the tickets worth RM116 via Metro Events contest! (now you realised you have missed out on the contest - go and check out other contests there).

Clash of Heroes lined up 10 fighters from various countries and the highlight of the night was the fight between locally grown hero - Ev 'ET' Ting versus Eric Kelly (The Philippines). Based on their fighting records, it was hard to predict who will come out victorious.

Female Catchweight Bout: Jenny Huang (Taipei) defeated Amira Badr (Egypt)
The match began with two female fighters which were won by Jenny Huang from Taipei. These two are to watch for in the near future, especially Jenny.

Lightweight Bout: Saygid Guseyn Arslanaliev (Dagestan) defeated Mishal Alfad (Indonesia)
The second match was such a quick win that it was over before I even know what was going on. I think Mishal also felt the same as he was defeated by Saygid.

Middleweight Bout: Agilan Thani (Malaysia) defeated James Kuoame (Canada)
Next came a local hero by the name of Agilan. Judging from their physiques, I expected James to win. But looks can be deceiving as Agilan was very agile and on point with his punches. Agilan won and I was estatic!

Featherweight Bout: Christian Lee (Singapore) defeated Mahmoud Mohamed (Egypt)
When Mahmoud and Christian Lee entered the stage, I immediately felt sorry for Christian as Mahmoud was domineering in size but again, size doesn't matter in MMA. It is the matter of the tools and the accuracy of the punches that win the match. Christian Lee won in the first round.

Lightweight Bout: Keanu Subba defeated Rayner Kinsiong
The next fight was all about Malaysian heroes. Keanu Subba, a KL born fighter versus Rayner 'King Karabaw' Kinsiong, a Sabah born fighter. It was an intense fight and the win went to Keanu Subba.
One Championship, Clash of Heroes, fighters, international mixed martial arts, MMA, Metros Events, Stadium Negara, Tune Talk, Under Armour
Lightweight Bout: Samir Mrabet (Belgium) defeated Sami Amin (Egypt)
I assumed it was not the night for the Egyptian fighters. Sami Amin submitted to Samir Mrabet's head and arm shold hold in Round 2.
One Championship, Clash of Heroes, fighters, international mixed martial arts, MMA, Metros Events, Stadium Negara, Tune Talk, Under Armour
Catchweight Bout: Geje Eustaquio (Philippines) defeated Saiful Merican (Malaysia)
When Saiful Merican walked into the stage, I was estatic for a fellow Malaysian. But in the stage of MMA, one can never expect the unexpected. With just one blow from Geje, Saiful dropped to the floor and with another kick to Saiful's head, the referee declared TKO for the match.

Catchweight Bout: Jake Butler (USA) defeated Tatsuya Mizuno (Japan)
Jake Butler wanted to finish the match with such haste that Tatsuya finally has to give in and submitted. This one was a fierce punch and kick throws by both fighters.
One Championship, Clash of Heroes, fighters, international mixed martial arts, MMA, Metros Events, Stadium Negara, Tune Talk, Under Armour
Lightweight Bout: Eduard Folayang (Philippines) defeated Tetsuya Yamada (Japan)
The next match was done after 3 rounds. During most of the rounds, Tetsuya was always on the ground, with his back on the ground and waited for Eduard to come down and tackle him. The crowd was annoyed with his lack of action but Eduard was patience enough not to give in and when the situation permits, he laid some punches and kicks on Tetsuya. After 3 rounds and with unaninous decision, Eduard won.

Featherweight Bout: Ev Ting (Malaysia) defeated Eric Kelly (Philippines)
The moment that everyone was waiting for has finally arrived. The match between Ev 'ET" Ting and Eric Kelly lasted for 3 rounds and everyone was on their feet cheering for the fighters. Both fighters were determined to win. Punches, kicks, locks and backflips were seen throughout the match. However, Eric finally has to give in after Ev gave him a giloutine move that he couldn't get out from.

All hail the Hero!
Being it was my first time ever watching MMA, I was glued to my seat until the end of the match. And I enjoyed the match too - the adrenaline of watching the punches and kicks and to scream my support to fellow Malaysians - that was an unbelievable experience.

Watching it live has a totally refined experience as compared to watching it on your set ot via youtube.

Let's Makan @ Crab Hut Asia

Believe it or not, but I am not a fan of seafood. 
Why?
Perhaps because I am still traumatized by the allergic incident when I was small (which was not so distant ago - YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT).

Let's Get Cracking!
However, when I was invited for a shell-out session at Crab Hut Asia, my curiosity got the best of me. If turns out that I am still allergic to seafood, I would get an MC the day after and could still brag about it afterward.

Being a non-seafood lover before, I was totally unaware that there are a few types (a lot) of crabs around. And here at Crab Hut Asia, I feasted my eyes and tastebuds to different types  of crabs and ways to cook crabs. There were king crab, meat crab, spanner crab and a lot of other seafood such as scallops, lobsters, prawns, mussels and octopus.

Yes, there will be no utensils here!
I was so in awed when I learnt that the promotional sauces change every two months, which makes the dishes some sort of an elite food - once you missed it, you will have to wait for another two months to have the same sauce.

The one  sauce that really hit the mark was Spicy Plum - YUMMEH!

The Boy [Movie Review]

It has been quite some time that I wrote reviews on movies.
Not that I quit watching movies - it was just that I was quite busy and also the fact that I hadn't been lucky to get the free tix to the movies.
byrawlins, horror, movie review, The Boy, The Boy Movie, Thriller,
Every child needs to feel loved
Have you watched the trailer for the movie "The Boy"? 
Dubbed to be the most horror movie of 2016, I would say "Nah".
SYNOPSIS
Greta accepted a temporary job as a nanny to escape his abusive boyfriend. But to her surprise, she will not be taking care of a small boy. Instead, she will be taking care of Brahms, a porcelain doll that Mr. and Mrs. Heelshire treated as a living child. 
byrawlins, horror, movie review, The Boy, The Boy Movie, Thriller,
The Heelshire attending to Brahms
The Heelshire mentioned that the real Brahms died in a fire when he was 8 years old and has been changing nannies because the incompatibility between the two. As the Heelshire were leaving on a holiday, they cautioned Greta to follow all the rules as Brahms is not a normal kid. 

But Greta managed to ignore all the rules and did as she pleases around the house. Then strange things started to happen to her including the sound of a child crying and the doll seems to able to move on its own.
Confiding to Malcolm about the mysterious incidents, she was told that Brahms used to have a friend, a young girl that later found dead with her head crushed. 
byrawlins, horror, movie review, The Boy, The Boy Movie, Thriller,
A crying porcelain doll?
As Greta has suffered a miscarriage before, the incident somehow made her feels obligated to care for Brahms and ignore Malcolm's warning to stay away from the house and the doll.
byrawlins, horror, movie review, The Boy, The Boy Movie, Thriller,
Can you feed me?
When Cole (Greta's boyfriend) managed to track her down to the Heelshire's residence, he insisted that Greta went home with him. During a quarrel among Greta, Malcolm, and Cole, Cole smashed the doll into pieces and the house started to shake. 

Will Greta be able to escape from The Boy?

MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.7/5.0. The twist certainly turns the movie around. What was a normal horror movie turns exciting towards the last scenes. 

The Act: 4.7/ 5.0. No complaint about their acting. Just nice - not overly a wonderful act but not bad too.

Will I Watch It Again: I probably will if the companies are great.
