Next

On one of the very rare weeknights I am able to watch TV, there's absolutely nothing noteworthy to watch! Well, except for 'Next' which had Nicholas Cage starring opposite Juliane Moore. Still, the premise has been filmed time and time again, about a man with paranormal ability to see into the future. The only difference here is that half the movie length was about Cage seeing the future happening and the director had the viewers mind reeled back to the moment it happened as it reach the end. Then, it ended there with nothing definite.

About the only part which had me sitting up was, would you believe it, the credits! I mean, I find it cheeky when they had the credits rolled down from the end instead of going up. Talking of which...

I took the below from Surind

Now, that is what I would like to believe as a nice way of looking into the future. It may not happen this PRU12, or 13, or even 14. But insyAllah it will happen. For the people of Malaysia who dare stands up for the truth, they will continue to do so no matter how many defeats they suffer. At worse, they will continue their struggle until victory is achieved; if not by them, then by the many others who will stand in line to take their place. No matter how many people you have in front of you, you know one way or another your turn will come.

Its just like waiting your turn at the clinic where every head will turn when the nurse says 'next!'.

Salam Shah:

Next was fun to watch but I can't stand Mr Cage. Most of his films he is just...Mr Cage and not the character. Just watch the last 5 films and you'll see his acting is the same.His facial expression the same.But I really hate Next's ending.
Same goes to Deja Vu.

About the caricature it was lawak gila .But unfortunately in Malaysia the Keris is still iconic to the malays.

Yesterday I checked SPR website and told my daughter that her registration as voter is gazetted. She was jumping for joy and said she can't wait to vote and I dare say, she will vote just like her father.
I am happy to report that the opposition has 4 votes in my household. That is 4 out of 4. Hope many others could deliver this number and will BN be in for a surprise.

Wa'alaikumusalam Doc,

A'ah, you got that right...Cage's facial expression - expressionless! And the ending...like they are planning some sequel kan? As for Deja Vu, den lum tengok lagi; will try to watch it next.

The world over, the kris as in keris, is recognise indigenous to the Malay archipelago. But the unsheathed keris as in the flag, that is something we can make do without, insyAllah :)

Salam Cikgu,

If there is going to be a sequel of 'Next', I'm not going to watch it. Bluekkk.. boring..

I like Mr Cage in Face Off.. and perhaps National Treasure.
