Film Reviews: Terbaik dari Langit (Nova)



This review is a special thanks to Dean Shaari because he convinced Liza so that I can watch this movie at the nearest cinema, that is also after a week this movie was released.


Sinopsis : Terbaik Dari Langit (Bahasa Inggeris: Nova) merupakan sebuah filem yang bercorak kembara dan fantasi yang telah ditayangkan pada 25 Disember 2014 di Malaysia. Filem yang diarahkan oleh Nik Amir Mustapha ini menampilkan pelakon Bront Palarae, Iedil Putra, Amerul Affendi, Megat Sharizal, Nadiya Nisaa dengan Sharifah Amani dan Siti Saleha. Filem ini mengisahkan seorang jejaka bernama Berg (Bront Palarae) yang merancang sebuah pengembaraan bersama empat rakannya untuk mencari kebenaran mengenai kisah UFO. Namun, di sebalik perjalanan yang jauh itu, mereka akhirnya menyedari sesuatu yang tidak pernah dijangkakan sebelumnya.


So what do I learnt from this movie?

(i) All Toyu's scene in this film made me laugh all the way in the cinema although there were only 2 of us in the cinema. Yes, I really mean it.


(ii) The fight for our desire the most important thing. So, Berg, I learnt my lesson. Even IF I WILL DIE I WILL ALWAYS FULFILL ALL MY WISH, BEFORE I DIE.



(iii) The humiliation to all Malaysian filmmakers. To the values of art. To all so-called-actors and artiste. This film is a spit to all faces who made Malaysian films, a joke to the whole world.


(iv) I finally opened up to the Malaysia indie scene.  And this one, on UFO. Nice on there Redza Minhat. "Kata filem pasal UFO, takde UFO pun?" The film meanings is too deep to be presented, but in my humble opinion, Berg try to present those who tried new things in the ground are called 'alien'.



(v) Few quotes that I believed I remember until now:
"Pandang langit jangan lupa tanah, hidup-sehidup-hidupnya."
Don't forget the ground when you are on the sky. Live as today is your last day.

(vi) And the scene with Pak Aziz. Yes, the late Aziz Satar. That was the most 'expensive' scene I believe. To have the most important and earliest people in Malaysian film, back in the yesteryears.


(vii) Amazing cinematography. And the flaws on the walls and buildings. There are too real to be talked about. 

To those who didn't watch the movie, yes, you are loosing.
To those who criticize the movie, it's always good to hear opinions.
To those who were evaluating the movie, it's not the job for you to put the movie values in. Others might have many thoughts, but arts are too precious to force people to believe what you believe.

I love indie. And Terbaik dari Langit? 9.9/10.

15 Lessons Learnt in Life

It's second half of the year and I'm half way through my life as 22 year old woman who still trip and make mistakes, stumbles here and there, try to make life worth living, somehow.
I did this game on Twitter, 1 like = 1 lesson learnt in life. So I decided to take it here and document all my thoughts on life, because every single thing I've learned so far is an advice to future me. 

1. Everything is temporary. People, attention, position, affection. Nothing stays forever and I've lost enough in life.
I've lost a lot of friends and enemies through time of my life. I get discouraged when people left my life, for whatever reason they did. I tend to blame myself, thinking where did I went wrong, until I came to my realization that nothing lasts forever. I raised myself to not depends to anyone anymore and be a new me - an individualistic person who values myself over everything else.
2. People have different opinions. But opinions can be molded with bigotry, racism an…

My Bipolar Diary VI: New Antidepressants

I haven't written quiet awhile about my bipolar journey - I think my depression really gets me drowned into a dark pit. I have been in low moods, low appettite, constant anxiety for a month and more now - reason why I stopped blooging my experience.
To a lot of people, opening up about mental health condition isn't an easy thing, especially to people that you love, solely because you don't want to burden them with your "small" issues. I always think that my problem is small, crying, whining, frustration, blankness as something that I shouldn't talk with anyone, just because other people had it worst than me, but they managed it well.
But I came across one article the other day telling me - everyone have their own limit and capacity of managing stress. Yours is smaller, but that's okay. You will thrive and get through it by time. Time will heal, of course.
So I went for my last appointment with my psychiatrist today - and I got prescribed with an antidepr…

Buku Tebal Challenge by @BookendsMY

Everyone who knows me know that I am a bibliophile - and I'm targetting myself to read 60 books this year (Follow my 2017 Reading Challenge on Goodreads!)
So on July, a reading community called BookendsMY had organised Buku Tebal Challenge, where we got to read a book, over 500 pages, and post our reviews about the book in any platform. I always loved Goodreads because it allows writer to read comments about their books and interact with them, too.
Follow me on Goodreads!
So my pick for the Buku Tebal Challenge was American Gods by Neil Gaiman.


Check out what I say about Gaiman's American Gods:

Phew. It was a roller coaster ride for two days I spent on this book, ignoring everything that happened in this world just for Shadow's adventure.

I can't find anything that I hate about this book, truly a read that brings the meaning of belief and religion and emotional attachment and detachment, value of life and death to a person, and to believe that something has bigger powe…
