SYNOPSIS
The movie starts with a Life Foundation's rocket failing while entering Earth with its 'precious cargo 'and crash-landed in Sibu, Sarawak! The cargo infected the nearby people and possesses a lady with Life Foundation's logo in her hand.

Yes, you read it right!
It landed in Sibu, Sarawak!
That's my hometown y'all. I have to check on my family now.
Nice set of ring lights you have here. You also doing beauty review?

After which, he was fired.

Spiralling down with no job and life, Eddie's life change when he met Dr Dora Skirth. Dr Skirth can no longer tolerate Carlton's immorality and decided to share the evidence with Brock. She sneaked Brock into the lab. Inside the lab, Brock realises that all the experiment test subjects are homeless people and one of them is his friend. He manages to break her out from the cell, but Maria (the homeless friend) jumped and strangled him.

Whoa! Imagine waking up to you every morning!
Venom, Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Comics, Marvel Studios, superhero, Tom Hardy, Klips Malaysia, Movie Review by Rawlins, Rawlins GLAM
This costume will take too much space
Fleeing the lab, Eddie realised that he has contracted a parasite of a sort when he starts to hear voices. And when the bad guys from the lab crush his place, the dark matter that materialises from his body and attacks the bad guys confirms his fear that he is not well. 

Again, he manages to flee the scene alive, all the while getting to know the dark matter and the voice inside his head. It is an alien race that wants to conquer the world and it needs a host to survive in Earth's environment. The alien introduced itself as Venom.

And I thought my husband is ugly!
Meanwhile, the alien that crash-landed in Sibu has managed to find its way to the lab. It changes body from Sarawak by possesses different hosts along the way. When it reaches the lab, it possesses Carlton and introduced itself as Riot.

Eddie's good nature must have taken its effect on Venom when Venom starts to like Earth and don't want its race to take over Earth. In order to save Earth, Venom has to stop Riot from flying back to their planet and return with the race.

There is only one problem - Riot is a major leader and packed with lots of weapons, whereas Venom is just a nobody.
Venom, Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Comics, Marvel Studios, superhero, Tom Hardy, Klips Malaysia, Movie Review by Rawlins, Rawlins GLAM
When riding a tricycle is too mainstream
Will Eddie/ Venom succeed in their mission saving the Earth?

Psst: There will be two post-credit scenes with one being at the end of the credit. So, just stay on your seats until the very end ok.

MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.8/ 5.0. Nothing new with the anti-hero movie plot. But I love how they build the character and the movie that will enable the non-Marvel fanatics to understand the film enough. What I love? The fight scenes, the monologue between the two characters and also the wittiness of Eddie in the movie.

Cast: 4.8/ 5.0. No comment whatsoever! Just love!

Will I watch it again: Yes. I don't mind watching it again!

Hell Fest [Movie Review]

It is October and some people are already looking forward to having Halloween (hello to my friends over the seas).
Hell Fest, Lionsgate, Horror Movie, Movie Review by Rawlins,
That is not the case for us in Malaysia as there are not so many holidays in the month of October (boo hu hu hu). 

So, yesterday, my friends and I had a small reunion (read: eat coffee movie and eat session) and after a hearty dim sum lunch, we decided to watch a movie, and the only ones that fit into our schedule were Hell Fest. We love a little scare-movie, so why not?

SYNOPSIS
The movie started with a group of three teenage girls in a Hell Fest at Orange County. One of them got separated during a scare and ended up being stabbed by a masked guy who has been following her around in the park. She was last seen hanged by the masked guy as if she was a part of the props.
Hell Fest, Lionsgate, Horror Movie, Movie Review by Rawlins,
Hello Hell?
Nat is visiting her best friend, Brooke to spend the weekend and realises that Taylor is now Brooke's roommate. Nat and Taylor do not get along well.

Gavin, a guy that likes Nat has arranged for the girls and their boyfriends to visit Hell Fest with VIP passes. Nat was a bit reluctant but she wants to spend the weekend with Brooke, so she just went along. And she also kinda likes Gavin, so she was hoping to indulge in her fondness towards Gavin.
Hell Fest Trivia
  • Directed by: Gregory Plotkin
  • Produced by: Gale Anne Hurd & Tucker Tooley
  • Distributed by: CBS Film & Lionsgate
  • Running time: 89 minutes
  • Budget: $5.5 million
Then come along a guy in a hoodie and there is a negative aura that surrounds him. He notices that a young woman was insulting a park worker. He sets his sight on him and starts to follow her. 

Meanwhile, Nat and her girl group get separated from the guys in the maze. They come across the young girl screaming for her life, claiming that someone is following her and wanting to kill her. Assuming that it was a part of the park's gimmick, Nat tells the guy in the hoodie that she is not scared and tell him to just get on with the show. The guy stabs the girl in front of Nat before she leaves the scene, feeling funny that the scene was too real. 
Hell Fest, Lionsgate, Horror Movie, Movie Review by Rawlins,
Are you my new dentist? 
Hell Fest, Lionsgate, Horror Movie, Movie Review by Rawlins,
I love what you do to your walls man - wicked!
After that, she realises that the guy has been following she and her group all night. She complains to the group and they dismiss her complain.

When Gavin looks for a stuffed toy to give to Nat, he comes across the hoodie guy in the storeroom. Gavin is cornered by the guy before the guy smashes his head in with a mallet and steals his phone. He uses it to communicate with Nat.

As the group enters the Dead Lands, they realise that the employees of the Dead Lands are wearing the same mask as the killer guy. That makes Nat jumpy at every sight of the guy in the mask and the scares get real. 
Hell Fest, Lionsgate, Horror Movie, Movie Review by Rawlins,
Please! I need to use the restroom, pronto!
Who will survive the Hell Fest?
MY REVIEW
Plot: 3.0/ 5.0. Just like any other scare movie, the plot is predictable. The group gets separated and killed one by one. But the twist of the movie is at the end of the movie. Not a strong plot and nothing new to see here too. Oh! There is a funny line during the movie when the girls are looking for a way out and decide to enter the Hell instead. Hello! The banner says 'Welcome To Hell' and not 'This way out'. All those money for grade schools seems wasted here.

Cast: 4.30/ 5.0. Although not the first class actors, they are pretty good and deliver their parts convincingly. Except for the stupid line, I was happy with the act.

Will I watch it again: Nah. Not worth it. If I were in the mood for a good scare in the future, this will not be my choice.

Shop Online To Save More Cash

Online shopping is the latest craze and it has no boundary - age or geographic wise. Even my 60 years old mum loves online shopping. And there is a site for everything nowadays - from electronics to groceries. Just search for it online and you will definitely find a site (if not sites) for the items that you have searched for.

Coupons Heaven
One can buy almost anything online nowadays (heck.. people even sell their kidneys and babies online too - very bad and desperate people).

Why? People shop online not because they are lazy.

They shop online because it is very convenient.  If you are still not convinced why people shop online, here are some strong reasons why you should change your shopping behaviour. (Why won't you? Do you live in a cave with the dinosaurs?)
  • One could find dirt-cheap offers online
  • Shop anytime, anywhere – without having to figure out where to park the car/ think about traffic condition
  • Become more productive with the time saved
Personally, I love to do portal-hopping as I want to compare prices and buy the items at the cheapest-priced portal. And I don’t mind spending hours going through the sites, just to find that amazingly low price for the items that I want.

So, what do I always buy online? Literally, almost everything except for shoes. For shoes, I am more confident and comfortable in trying them on first before buying them. Apart from shoes, I don’t mind buying items off the internet, whenever I have the means.

So, what do I usually buy from the net?
I love buying for self-grooming products, makeups items and some fancy and rare decoration items that I could use for my next best-dress competition. I am always on the lookout for the ‘out-of-this-world’ decoration that I could use to enhance my look.
Shopcoupons, Shopee Malaysia, Online Shopping, Shopee Super Brand Festival, Rawlins Shops, Best Deals Online
Some of my fave brands and they have coupons for them too
The usual self-grooming products such as hair gel, moisturizer, facial wash etc. The normal products that a man uses. Hehe. And there was one time that I bought razors online too as the price was unbelievably low.

Oh. My mum and my sisters will also contact me to buy the items for them. I don’t mind buying the items for them as I will keep the transaction points for myself to buy other items in the future. Win-Win Situation. Hahaha. Usually, it is always handbags and clothing. And my mum loves getting new handbags so much that she will contact me every other month, just as when she finds the ones that she loves.

I love saving as much as I love shopping. Ain’t that contradictory?
Not anymore as I managed to get the best offers from Shopcoupons, a coupon-heaven for all avid online shoppers. I managed to get coupons for my usual grooming products and I even managed to get the coupon for a dance session at Celebrity Fitness.

More savings for me - and I get to dance too
Yeah! I get to enjoy Synergy Dance 02 Event at a special price of RM65 and additional RM10 off, when I use the Shopee promo code. Talk about being smart, right!
Shopcoupons, Shopee Malaysia, Online Shopping, Shopee Super Brand Festival, Rawlins Shops, Best Deals Online
Everything for everyone
Browsing through the coupons to shop on Shopee Malaysia., I realized that the discounts range from 10% - 30%, depending on the items. There are offers for Kellogg’s, Fila, Jean Perry, Poplook Outlet Store, for home appliances and mobile and so many more.

With all that offers they have going on, I have to be very smart, careful and choosy. If not, I will end up buying all the items there.

But at times, not everything goes the way we planned. I ended up buying almost all. Haha. But it is ok. I saved a lot while shopping on Shopee Malaysia using coupons from Shopcoupons.

Smallfoot [Movie Review]

How would you feel if everything taboo that you have been taught your whole life, suddenly become not so taboo anymore?
Smallfoot, Warner Bros. Pictures, Movie Review by Rawlins, Cartoon, Klips Malaysia,
And turns out that everything that you know was a lie from day 1?

Thanks to Klips for inviting me to the premiere of Smallfoot. Looking forward to receiving more invitations from Klips soon. 

SYNOPSIS
Migo has been looking forward to the day when he will be stepping in for his father as the second most important person in the village - the person that will knock the gong every day to wake up the 'Big Snail' and everyone in the village. Their lives in the village are determined by the rules that are written in stones and wore as a cape by the village head, known as the Stonekeeper. 

Oh. And their village is a floating mountain and beneath the cloud, there is only nothingness - as to what the stone says.
They are taught not to question the rules, every single one. And so far, everybody is happy.
Smallfoot, Warner Bros. Pictures, Movie Review by Rawlins, Cartoon, Klips Malaysia,
Is this a toothpick?
Until one day when Migo accidentally overshoot from the gong and landed on the other side of the village. There, Migo met with a guy that survives a plane crash and this discovery contradicts what has been taught - there is no smallfoot aka human. When he returns to his village and shares his findings, he immediately banished from the village for questioning the Stones.  

Smallfoot Trivia
  • Directed by: Karey Kirkpatrick
  • Produced by: Bonne Radford, Glenn Ficarra , John Requa

  • Budget: $80 million
Walking around outside the village, he meets a group of 'smallfoot believer' and the funny thing is, the daughter of the Stonekeeper (and Migo's secret crush since forever), Meechee is the leader of the organization. The organization questions all the logic of the Stones' regulations and believe that there is something more beneath their village.
Smallfoot, Warner Bros. Pictures, Movie Review by Rawlins, Cartoon, Klips Malaysia,
The truth is out there
Determined with her theory, everyone agrees to send Migo to track the 'smallfoot', underneath the village.

Migo manages to find the 'smallfoot', Percy Patterson, a failing TV host that is in need of a great story to redeem his broadcasting career. Migo brings (read: kidnaps) Percy to the village to prove to the Stonekeeper that the Stone is wrong and he is not lying, just so that he can come back to the village.
Smallfoot, Warner Bros. Pictures, Movie Review by Rawlins, Cartoon, Klips Malaysia,
Not the same as I look in my Tinder profile pic?
Will he succeeds in convincing the Stonekeeper and the whole village about the existence of Smallfoot?

MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.3/ 5.0. Please do not expect a grand plot as this is a cartoon and it is supposed to be fun so it is a fun and easy watching movie. Just be ready to be laughing out loud throughout the movie.

Cast: 4.6/ 5.0. No complaint whatsoever. 

Will I watch it again: I will, probably with my nephews and nieces as it is such a funny and kid-friendly movie.

The Predator [Movie Review]

Happy Malaysia Day to all and may peace will always be with us all.

So what did you guys do during the long weekend? I attended a glorious wedding and watched The Predator afterwards with my friends. We were actually planning to watch Peppermint but due to the time constraint (the next Peppermint show was almost 5 hours away) so we agreed to watch The Predator.
The Predator, science fiction movie, alien action movie, Movie Review by Rawlins,  Rawlins GLAM


SYNOPSIS
An alien ship crash-landed on earth, nearing a rescue mission location led by Capt. McKenna. A fight ensues between McKenna and the alien, in which Mckenna wins and incapacitates the Predator and takes off the armour from the Predator. He mails the armour to his home so that he will have an evidence, in case he ever gets capture later.

The Predator Trivia

  • Produced by: John Davis
  • Distributed by: 20th Century Fox
  • Running Time: 107 minutes
  • Budget: $88 million 
  • The 4th installment in the Predator film series (the sixth if you are counting the two Alien vs. Predator films)

The Loonies that save the day (Earth)

I choose to play with the normal toys and not my smartphone
Failing to kill the Predator, they save Dr Bracket and heads over to McKenna's home, where he sends the armour to Capt. McKenna's autistic son, Rory, has opened the package and somehow has managed to operate the armour and uses it as his Halloween costume.

The Predator uses the tracking device on the armour to track down Rory.
The 'loonies' try their best to save the boy and everything was going quite well until a second and much larger Predator arrives and kills the first and much smaller Predator.
The Predator, science fiction movie, alien action movie, Movie Review by Rawlins,  Rawlins GLAM
Do you guys think I should wear this for my next 'Best Dressed' event?
Why have the Predators been coming to Earth?
Why did they kill each other?

MY REVIEW 
Plot: 3.4/ 5.0. I am not an avid fan of the Predator series. But we all know the plot - they come, they try to conquer the Earth but some bad-a*s human manage to stop them in their track. But there is a twist in this one - you better be alert throughout the movie to learn their motives of keep on coming back to Earth.

Cast: 4.6/ 5.0. Everybody carries their part fairly well. I love how well Jacob Tremblay (Rory McKenna) plays the autistic child. The 'Loonies' as I love to call them, did justice to their parts too.

Will I watch it again: As am not an avid fan of the series, I will not watch it again in the cinema but I don't mind doing a marathon of the series at home. Hehe.
