Aladdin [Movie Review]

7:30 AM 15 Comments A+ a-

Growing up watching the cartoon 'Aladdin', I would say that I know the lyrics by heart.

Arabian nights
Like Arabian days
More often than not are hotter than hot
In a lot of good ways

So, it is by default that I watch the movie when it airs.
A fact: Aladdin is a musical fantasy film directed by Guy Ritchie, so expect a lot of singing ok.

Aladdin, a young street urchin saves and befriends Princess Jasmine, who has snuck out of the palace. He then shows Princess Jasmine his place that overlooks the vast of Agrabah. Princess Jasmine hides her true identity and identifies herself as Dalia, the handmaiden of Princess Jasmine.

Meanwhile, Jafar was seen ushering a man into the Cave of Wonders, in the hope that the man will help him finding the lamp. The man fails and this makes him agitated. He has to find the right person to enter the cave and bring back the lamp that will assist him in his quest of becoming the Sultan.

Wow! You are easily impressed
When Aladdin sneaks into the palace to meet with Princess Jasmine and to return the bracelet, he was caught by Jafar's men when he was exiting the place. Jafar brings him to the cave to retrieve the lamp. In the cave, Aladdin rescues the trapped magical carpet.

Abu, Aladdin's pet monkey who loves everything shiny, couldn't keep his hands to himself and pick up a huge bloodred jewel that causes the cave to shook. With the carpet's help, both Aladdin and Abu try to escape the cave. Jafar offers to help but as soon as he gets the lamp, Jafar steps on Aladdin's finger that causes him to fall deeper into the cave.

Shiny. So shiny. 
Abu was fast to get the lamp back from Jafar.
Aladdin rubs the lamp and out a blue genie from it, promising to grant Aladdin his three wishes.

Aladdin's life-changing adventure starts here with Genie, Abu and the flying carpet. Be prepared to laugh, cry and also some actions throughout this musical fantasy film.
Aladdin, Will Smith, Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott, Marwan Kenzari, Nasim Pedrad,  Blue Genie, Flying carpet, Movie Review by Rawlins, Comedy, Fantasy, Rawlins GLAM
Never see a blue genie before?
Will Genie be able to assist Aladdin in achieving his dreams?

MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.7/ 5.0 Nothing new, as the storyline is the same as the one before this and as it was in the cartoon. Some differences - Jafar wants to invade a nearby country and not marry Princess Jasmine, Iago doesn't really speak, Princess Jasmine wants to become Sultan. And why do I feel like I was watching a Bollywood movie instead of a Middle East-influenced movie?
Expect to laugh a lot. And it helps if you remember the lyrics too.

Cast: 4.9/ 5.0 Will Smith as Genie is hilarious. Mena as Aladdin and Naomi as Princess Jasmine was very convincing. I also love Nasim as Dalia - she is one funny lady.

Will I watch it again: I will, to accompany my nephews and nieces.

Are you ready for Boyzone's 'Thank you and Goodnight Farewell' Tour?

2:30 PM 0 Comments A+ a-

Growing up in the '80s and '90s means that you have grown in the era of fun and the enthusiasm leading to the year 2000. And it is also hard not to notice the explosion of boys bands everywhere in the world! 

When 'Love me for a reason' by Boyzone first aired, I instantly hooked up! I don't even care when my father said that the original version by The Osmonds was better because I was (and still am) loving their version is much better. And I have been their fan ever since. 

I love singing When You Say Nothing At All by Ronan Keating whenever I go to the karaoke.
Boyzone, Thank You and Goodnight Farewell Tour, AirAsia Red Tix, Rawlins GLAM, Wowstar Creative Entertainment Co., Ltd.,
So when I learnt that Boyzone will be doing their "Thank you and Goodnight Farewell" Tour in Malaysia this coming June, I am over the moon! And this particular concert will be their last show too! How can I let go of the chance to attend their curtain-call show!

What I heard that Boyzone will be performing some of their greatest hits including “When You Say Nothing At All,” “No Matter What” and “Love Me For A Reason.” which happens to be my all-time favourite songs!

“When we started out as five young Dublin Northsiders, eager to face the world, we never imagined that we’d still have an army of fans some twenty-five years later… If you’d seen our famous first TV appearance on ‘The Late Late Show,’ you’d probably be surprised too!” said the band, according to the tour website.

Boyzone enjoyed success throughout their career.

“We’ve played stadiums and arenas all over the world, released six albums, and had almost two-dozen hits. We really can’t put into words just how much you, the fans, have supported us along the way. Without that support, we would have never achieved what we have, and for that, we’re eternally grateful,” they added.

Another news that also adds to my excitement is that the former boy band Westlife member and songwriter Brian McFadden has been announced as special guest performer in the upcoming last show on 14th June 2019 at Malawati Stadium, Shah Alam.

McFadden started his singing career as a member of Westlife, which was formed in 1998 and released the debut studio album “Westlife” in 1999. He left Westlife in 2004 to begin his solo career and released the single “Real to Me,” a track in his debut solo album “Irish Son.” In 2016, McFadden and Boyzone’s Keith Duffy formed the group Boyzlife and toured the world, performing their bands’ hits.

Excited is not even the right word to describe my feeling about this upcoming concert by one of my favourite boy band. I better start checking those tickets now - dive right into  AirAsia Red Tix  

Pssst. I was told that the first 200 VIP ticket purchasers are entitled to take a group photo with Boyzone! You better get your tickets now!

My most awaited monsters movie of all has finally aired. I was pleasantly awed by the last one and just can't wait to watch all the new monsters.
Movie Review by Rawlins, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Godzilla, Ghidorah, Mothra, Rodan, Action, Sci-Fi,
As I don't want to be the last to watch it, so I forced my friends to have a breaking fast session and movie night with me. Thanks to Klips.my and Roll With Carol for the premiere invites!

SYNOPSIS
Dr Mark Russell and Dr Emma Russell lose their son during the fight of Godzilla against the MUTOs in 2014. After which, they separated. Dr Emma lives with their daughter, Madison and carries on exploring the world of Godzilla and creating a device (named Orca) to communicate and control the giants. Whereas, Dr Mark travels the world to take pictures of animals in the wild.

When larvae Mothra finally wakes up, Dr Emma uses Orca to control the larvae's tantrum and it works. And then Jonah, an environmentalist who wants to restore the natural order of the world, barges in and kidnaps Dr Emma and Madison. 

Realising that Jonah might use Orca to wake up the numerous monsters around the world and let them takes over the world, Dr Mark agrees to join the rescue mission of his daughter and ex-wife. Later, they learn that Dr Emma is actually the one who has been encouraging the waking up of all the monsters.

Two heads are better, what about three?
When Ghidorah wakes up and the human loses control over its action, the world's future is at stake. Ghidorah wants to rule the world but Godzilla will never allow that. Some monsters side with Ghidorah, which apparently an alien thus cannot be controlled via Orca and some sides with Godzilla, which wants to rid off of Ghidorah.

Along the way, the humans learn the history of each monster and realise that the Earth is not just for the humans and these monsters might be gods.
Will Godzilla be able to defend the world? 
At what cost?

MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.9/ 5.0 Call me bias but I really enjoy this instalment. With so many monsters waking up and lots of monsters fighting scenes, I was actually have expecting to see Ultraman enter the screen. Expect to see lots of monsters and lots of fighting scenes. This time around, the humans' air time was a little less, the focus was more on the monsters. 

Cast: 4.9/ 5.0 Nicely done everyone. No complaint whatsoever - Millie Bobby Brown as Madison was great as she plays with her emotions well in the movie.

Will I watch it again: Yes, in IMAX or 3D please!

Amalan Yang Silap di Bulan Ramadhan

7:30 AM 10 Comments A+ a-

Eh Rawlins nie pun.
Dah nak habis puasa baru nak up post gini?

Saja je nak saling mengingatkan.
Itu lebih baik dari langsung tak buat kan?
Amalan di bulan Ramadhan. kesilapan amalan di bulan ramadhan, hukum tidak bersolat, Ramadhan, fadhilat puasa, Rawlins GLAM
Sumber: Utusan
Ini bukannya hasil tulisan diri sendiri tapi daripada pembacaan di beberapa laman web dan rujukan kepada yang pakar ye. 

Mungkin dalam tidak sedar amalan-amalan tersebut mengurangkan pahala sedangkan kita merasakan kita sudah membuat yang terbaik. Jom sama-sama semak, takut ada yang tersilap ye.

1) Makan dan minum dengan bebas setelah batal puasa dengan sengaja dan bukan sebab uzur
Amalan di bulan Ramadhan. kesilapan amalan di bulan ramadhan, hukum tidak bersolat, Ramadhan, fadhilat puasa, Rawlins GLAM

Ingat ye, sedangkan yang uzur pun perlu menjaga adab bila nak makan minum ye. Bukan tayang sesuka hati. Inikan pula yang sihat walafiat dan sengaja membatalkan. Hish. Nak kena cubit nie.

2) Tidak bersolat ketika berpuasa
Amalan di bulan Ramadhan. kesilapan amalan di bulan ramadhan, hukum tidak bersolat, Ramadhan, fadhilat puasa, Rawlins GLAM
Eh. Dah kenapa pula tak solat? Patutnya dah boleh puasa, maka boleh la solat kan (provided hang dah siap mandi wajib ye). Bulan Ramadhan adalah bulan menambahkan pahala amalan kan. Kalau tak solat, makanya hanya dapat lapar dan dahaga je. Pahala maybe 0, maybe negative la (tu tak kira pula buat benda bukan-bukan kan seperti mengumpat etc)

3) Makan terlampau banyak ketika berbuka sehingga melambatkan solat
Amalan di bulan Ramadhan. kesilapan amalan di bulan ramadhan, hukum tidak bersolat, Ramadhan, fadhilat puasa, Rawlins GLAM
Tau la makanan kat bazar Ramadhan atau buffet Ramadhan di hotel-hotel tu lazat belaka (mana hang tau - kan takleh rasa before berbuka?). Tapi jangan la nak 'balas dendam' dengan ambil segala yang ada depan mata. And since dah beli/ bayar, maka paksa diri untuk habiskan semua makanan di depan mata  tu. 

Ikutlah sunnah Rasulullah ﷺ  yakni hanya berbuka dengan 3 butir kurma dan segelas air dan boleh ditambah dengan makanan lain setelah mendahulukan solat Maghrib. Jangan la melantak sampai tak larat nak solat dan sekaligus melambatkan atau lagi teruk, terlepas solat Maghrib. 

4) I puasa maka I tak larat nak buat apa-apa pun
Amalan di bulan Ramadhan. kesilapan amalan di bulan ramadhan, hukum tidak bersolat, Ramadhan, fadhilat puasa, Rawlins GLAM
Nie alasan paling kerap didengar kan. 'I tak larat nak buat apa-apa nie. I berpuasa.'
Tau kan yang bekerja itu sebahagian dari ibadah - maka bila dilaksanakan dengan fokus dan kecintaan, akan memberikan pahala. Lagipun sepatutnya di bulan Ramadhan, takde banyak godaan untuk menghalang fokus kerja, sewajarnya produktiviti meningkat.

5) Penjagaan aurat bagi wanita ketika solat di masjid
Amalan di bulan Ramadhan. kesilapan amalan di bulan ramadhan, hukum tidak bersolat, Ramadhan, fadhilat puasa, Rawlins GLAM
Dah siap bertelekung nak pergi terawih? Terbaik. Tapi pastikan bukannya kain nipis atau menampakkan susuk badan ye. 
Satu lagi, aurat dan kaki tu terjaga tak? 

6) Tidak memperbanyakkan doa ketika berpuasa dan berbuka
Amalan di bulan Ramadhan. kesilapan amalan di bulan ramadhan, hukum tidak bersolat, Ramadhan, fadhilat puasa, Rawlins GLAM
Bulan Ramadhan adalah bulan yang sangat berkat di mana doa-doa hambaNya dimakbulkan. Antara waktu yang paling baik untuk berdoa adalah ketika berpuasa, ketika hendak berbuka dan ketika bersahur.

7) 'Bersahur' sebelum tidur atau makan di tengah malam
Amalan di bulan Ramadhan. kesilapan amalan di bulan ramadhan, hukum tidak bersolat, Ramadhan, fadhilat puasa, Rawlins GLAM
Rawlins ingat lagi seorang alim ulama pernah menyebut 'Jika kamu makan sebelum tidur di tengah malam dengan niat untuk bersahur, itu bukannya bersahur. Itu adalah mengulang makan malam atau lebih dikenali sebagai moreh.'

Perkataan sahur itu bermaksud akhir malam atau sepertiga malam. Melewatkan sahur adalah sunat. Kata Zaid bin Thabit: “Kami bersahur bersama Rasulullah ﷺ , kemudian terus pergi untuk bersolat (Subuh)”. Anas bin Malik bertanya beliau: “Berapa lama antara sahur azan dan sahur tersebut?”. Jawab Zaid: “Kadar 50 ayat (al-Quran)”. (Riwayat al-Bukhari dan Muslim).

8) Mengutamakan solat terawih berjemaah dan bukan pada solat fardhu
Amalan di bulan Ramadhan. kesilapan amalan di bulan ramadhan, hukum tidak bersolat, Ramadhan, fadhilat puasa, Rawlins GLAM
Sumber
Adush. Terkena diri sendiri.
Ramai yang begini kan. Yang fardhu tidak dilakukan secara berjemaah. Hanya berjemaah ketika solat terawih kerana ianya hanya hadir di bulan Ramadhan. Nak tambah pahala kan? Maka, marilah kita berjemaah di semua solat. 

9) Berbuka dengan merokok/ vape, atau selain makan minum
Amalan di bulan Ramadhan. kesilapan amalan di bulan ramadhan, hukum tidak bersolat, Ramadhan, fadhilat puasa, Rawlins GLAM
Ramai yang balas dendam merokok/ vape tatkala berbuka. Memasing tahu kan yang  ianya makruh, dan bahawa hukum merokok itu adalah haram di sisi Islam. Maka, eloklah berbuka dengan makanan yang halal ye. 

10) Tidur siang berlebihan kerana ibadah
Amalan di bulan Ramadhan. kesilapan amalan di bulan ramadhan, hukum tidak bersolat, Ramadhan, fadhilat puasa, Rawlins GLAM
Yang ini berkaitan dengan perkara 4 tadi. Beberapa alim ulama berpendapat bahawa hadis yang mengatakan tidur di siang hari adalah hadis doif. Ramai yang melebihkan tidur di siang hari  sehingga terlepas peluang amalan lain termasuk solat fardhu.

11) Imsak adalah 'lampu merah' bagi sahur
Amalan di bulan Ramadhan. kesilapan amalan di bulan ramadhan, hukum tidak bersolat, Ramadhan, fadhilat puasa, Rawlins GLAM
Imsak bukannya 'lampu merah' tetapi adalah 'lampu oren' untuk sahur. Ini bermakna waktu bersahur hampir tamat. Masih boleh bersahur apabila masuk waktu imsak, tapi ready to stop bila sudah masuk Fajar Sadiq @ Subuh. 

12) Tidak berzakat fitrah
Amalan di bulan Ramadhan. kesilapan amalan di bulan ramadhan, hukum tidak bersolat, Ramadhan, fadhilat puasa, Rawlins GLAM
Daripada Jabir, Rasulullah ﷺ bersabda: “Puasa Ramadhan tergantung antara langit dan bumi (tidak diangkat) melainkan selepas mengeluarkan zakat fitrah.”

Dah bayar zakat fitrah belum? Kadar zakat fitrah tiap seorang hanyalah kira-kira 2 sen sehari iaitu cuma RM 7 atau 2.67 kg makanan asasi. Zakat Fitrah bertujuan menyucikan setiap individu Islam supaya dirinya bersih seperti baru dilahirkan. Ramai yang sanggup berbelanja kepada perkara remeh dan sia-sia tetapi sangat kedekut bayaran fitrah sekali setahun itu.


So rerakan, sesama kita saling mengingati dan memperbetul amalan kita ye. Moga ibadah puasa kita diberkatiNya.

Semoga Ramadhan kita tahun ini lebih baik dari tahun-tahun sebelumnya.

After he killed Santino on the Continental ground, he is now declared as an 'excommunicado' and a bounty of $14 million is placed by the High Table for his life. As an 'excommunicado', he no longer eligible for assistance of any kind by anyone.

With no one to turn to, John retrieves a crucifix necklace and a "marker" medallion from a secret book in the New York Library. From there, he tries to locate The Director while running from the assassins along the way. He locates The Director, a woman from his past, who accepts the crucifix as a "ticket" for safe passage to Casablanca, Morocco.

This is carbon-free - I only have to be mindful of its dungs
An adjudicator from The High Table comes and demands Winston to give up his position at the Continental in 7 days as a fine for assisting John Wick. She also meets with the Bowery King and demands the same from him. 

In Casablanca, John meets Sofia who later brings him to Berrada, to answer John's question of The Elder's whereabouts. In return for the direction, Berrada asks for one of Sofia's dogs, which he shoots when Sofia refuses. This rages Sofia and she shoots Berrada which leads to John and her have to fight their way out of the place and flee to the desert.

Left alone at the desert, John makes his way until he collapses from exhaustion. One of The Elder's men found him. Pleading for his life, The Elder orders him to kill Winston if he wishes to live. John agrees and allows to head back to New York, but not before he shows his commitment by severing his finger and gives his wedding ring to the Elder.

I do not expect such a gathering, with dogs
Meanwhile, The Adjudicator makes her way around New York and recruits Zero to assist her. They visit The Director and the Bowery King and maimed them as a penance for their sins of assisting John. 

How will John complete his mission this time?

MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.5/ 5.0 Well, what can you expect. Of course, John will survive this one too. I think there is nothing or anyone who can kill him. Owh. Was it just me or I think that the earlier fighting sequence (at the house with lots of guns and knives) was a bit slow and seemed rehearsed? I like it more when John resolves to his guns - I don't think he is a martial art type of assassin. On another note, Halle Berry kicks ass!

Cast: 4.9/ 5.0 I love everyone here - the original cast are all here.

Will I watch it again: Believe it or not, I have watched this one, twice. Told you, I don't mind watching a movie with the right people.
