Suicide Squad (2016)

A group of supervillains were gathered by the government to prevent any 'Superman' level threats. 

I couldn't afford to miss this film. Not after all the hype and Margot Robbie as Harley freakin' Quinn! I think every guy (and girl) have at least a bit of hots for Margot Robbie after her sexy performance in The Wolf of Wall Street

As excited as I was, I didn't have the chance to catch it during releasing day because, you know, I'm a husband and father so responsibility comes first. Therefore, before watching it, I was swamped with all these hateful comments on the movie. Many say that it's a disappointment and many hated it. A handful defended Suicide Squad saying it's entertaining and Harley & Joker is relationship goals but they were all drowned by the bashings. 

I didn't care. Suck or not, I have to see it. I just love it when comic characters being made alive. 

My initial reaction? Dammmmnnnnn.... I was so excited when they showed Harley Quinn in the cage. By excited, I mean aroused. Honestly, it was so hard to contain myself. Well, not just Harley but I was also extremely excited to see the others, especially Deadshot. He's so badass in Batman: Assault on Arkham

My final reaction? I just couldn't stop smiling when I saw the end credit scene. DAMMMNNNN What you all are rambling about?? What do you mean it sucks??? This movie is so damn entertaining, I felt really good watching it. 

Okay, yes the script is awful. I could see the casts' struggle to deliver good punchlines but all in all, I think this is an enjoyable movie. 

You wanna know what I think? I think this movie is more like an action movie rather than superhero flick. Yeah, I love action movies. Most probably that's why I enjoy it too much. Suicide Squad gave me the same vibe as The Expendables. Yeah, that's right. They even sort of have the same concept - gather all the hardcores and form a team. The Suicide Squad are expendables themselves.

or maybe I'm just easy to please or my expectations were low I don't know but bottom line is, I just can't wait for the DVD release. I think it will be longer and smoother just like what happened with Batman V Superman. 

Heh heh alright I'm gonna turn off the rambling mode.

In all seriousness, all in all, Suicide Squad is an entertaining movie for me mainly because I was so excited to see the characters I love in the comics on the big screen. I love how they portrayed all of the characters especially Harley and Enchantress.

As I mentioned before, Margot Robbie as Harley is the best idea ever. Besides that, I was so intrigued with the design of Enchantress. The way she look is just spooky. Her appearance really gave me a chill. The locking hands every time she's about to appear, that's just awesome.

Apart from that, El Diablo's god mode gave me a hard nerdgasm. I mean, look at that glorious colossal battle! Boom! Bam! RARRRGHHH. So awesome.

What I would love to see more is the banter between Captain Boomerang and Deadshot. Instead of giving us that, they gave us Deadshot V Rick Flag.

Are you guys waiting on me giving you my opinion on Joker? Sorry to keep you waiting but I think Jared Leto should be working more on the smile. It doesn't feel like a scary psychotic smile to me. Other than that, personally Leto's performance is not bad. Not as awesome as The Dark Knight's but yeah, not bad either. Hopefully I can see more of him in future Batman movies. Yeah, yeah I'm quite an optimist.

My biggest disappointment is Batman. I recalled reading an article saying that Batman in Suicide Squad is super scary. I didn't see that in this film. Probably it was edited out to make sure it's less serious, I don't know. I was hoping him to be as creepy as his appearance in Batman V Superman - the part when he hanged on the ceiling like a creepy ghost bat. However, Bruce Wayne made up for it. Seeing how fierce he was when dealing with Amanda Waller, damn, damn, damn Ben Affleck is bae.

As a conclusion, fuck you haters. Excuse me, I mean, go to hell Marvel fanatics. No no no... I mean, ahem. Excuse me. As a conclusion, for me, Suicide Squad is a memorable experience as I treated it as an action movie rather than comparing it with Marvel films. Yes, it has horrible script but it managed to entertain me so much. Muahh

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

Batman / Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) felt that Superman (Henry Cavill) was a threat to mankind because of his godlike powers and therefore challenged him for a fight. 


Before I begin, I would like to say that I'm a fan of DC comics and animation. I grew up watching Justice League (2001 - 2004) and Justice League Unlimited (2004 - 2006) and I loved Young Justice (2010 - 2013) so much! I've watched all of DC animated movies. I'm not that familiar with the classic comics but I keep a close track of the New 52 version and also the latest version - DC You. When they first announced about Batman v Superman, I was beyond hyped! Then when they said it's gonna be Dawn of Justice, I was ugh ugh argh...... .... excuse me. A little case of nerdgasm there.

So, taking that into consideration, you can say that I might be a bit biased towards this movie. But I'll try to be honest with my opinion. 

Okay, I would love to start with Batman. Before the showing, comic fans & movie buffs were crazy about the production house casting Ben Affleck for the role of the dark knight mainly because of the failure of Daredevil (2003). However, Ben  proved to everyone that he is more than qualified to don the cape and also rock the seasoned billionaire look. Everyone is now praising him to be the Batman we all deserve and I agree with them. Man, the scene when Batman punched through the bad guys to get to Martha was epic! I wanted to see more of that. Besides that, my other favorite movie scene is when two police officers raided a house used for human trafficking. The way the victims were too scared to leave their cage and the portrayal of Batman being so devil-like. Ugh, I want more of that! 

Apart from that, I also love Alfred (Jeremy Irons). His snarks and sarcasms brought a bit of subtle comedy that I very much appreciated. I love him and wish to see more of him.

Next thing I love about is Wonder Woman. Her appearance was brief in this movie but rather noticeable. At first I wasn't sure whether I liked her or not - in the comics and cartoons, she's brute and violent but in this movie, she's rather into espionage. But seeing how she smiled during the last battle with Doomsday, man, I'm sold! I love her! That one scene, that one smile. I love her now. Adding to the love is the fact I've been in love with Gal Gadot since Fast Five. And I'm excited to hear Wonder Woman standalone movie to come out June 2nd 2017

The last fight with Doomsday was epic! Definitely what I was expecting from Zack Snyder. As I mentioned, one of my favorite things about that fight was Wonder Woman. Man, she's just awesome from the start of the monster brawl to the end. Batman was the most human of all in the fight so he couldn't contribute much in terms of wearing down Doomsday. But the fact that Doomsday is Krypton origin made it relevant for the dark knight to be in it since he forged and weaponized Kryptonite. Superman also put up an awesome fight. That heat vision showdown almost got me standing. Rarrhhhhhhh!!!

Henry Cavill is also solid as Superman but squeezing four (including Lex) main characters in one movie has taken a toll to his character. Maybe Snyder thought that Superman has been introduced in Man of Steel and therefore the focus on him is quite limited. Thus, they only show montages of him saving people in a big scale instead of showing in depth of how passionate he is about saving lives. They should have made Superman interact with the victims more.

Heck, I almost screamed with excitement when they showed Aquaman. His shot was awesome. Like an octopus he emerged from the wreckage and then, BOOM! he vanished. Awesome! I wish that they have shown more of the three meta humans (Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg) instead of just short clips. It was awesome seeing them all!

Okay, now I'm gonna go negative.

In my opinion, this movie failed to go full dark. The beginning of the movie is awesome. I love how portrayed Bruce's parents murder. That pearl and gun shot? Owh wow. I love that. The part when Batman branded the human trafficker? Wow wow wow. It got me excited. But then as the movie progresses, the dark and brood mood disappeared and things got rather... ... mundane. I didn't feel the build up and the suspense. I was hoping to feel the tension that I felt when watching The Dark Knight.

The mundane mood was probably caused by how mundane Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) is. While watching, I kept screaming internally, THAT'S NOT LEX LUTHOR! In the comics and cartoons, Lex Luthor is very calculative and calm. An evil genius mastermind. The Lex is Batman v Superman is mentally unstable and wimpy. The real Lex Luthor wouldn't make deals for what he wants! He would just take everything that he wants with his evil schemes! I really hate this version of Luthor. I hate it to the core!

All in all, in my opinion, I think that this movie is rather watchable. It's a good movie and I would want to watch it again but it's just not great. It doesn't live up to the hype and promo. It's trying to be dark but it's not. 

Besides that, I think the critics are being too harsh on this movie. Sure, it's not great but damn, they are slamming this movie like it's crap. It's not crap! Like I said, this movie is good... it's just not great. How good it is? Well, I would definitely say it is Age of Ultron good.

Farm in the City

Last Thursday, my family and I went to Farm in the City at Seri Kembangan, Selangor. Basically this place is like a mini zoo or a petting zoo. You can find out about this place on their website and FB page

This is the entrance. My wife and I paid RM32 per person to enter but Ubaid and Uwais could go in for free for their individual heights were less than 90 cm. 

There were tortoises and turtles everywhere. Workers were present to give out kangkung leaves to visitors for them to feed the animals.

Strollers could be used in the park. There were routes that were stroller friendly. 




Deers and goats!!

Tangkap Ikan Dalam Longkang - Kids were allowed to catch small fish here.

Rabbits and Guinea pigs!!

There's a cafe inside for visitors to take a breather. They sold drinks and light food.

Fish, swan and duck feeding spot. Feeds were provided.

Toilets and hand wash basins were made available for visitors.


Porcupines! But they were sleeping when we're there. Pfft


A very soft and tame skunk!



Prairie dogs!

Pony rides!

Only kids who were higher than 90 cm were allowed to ride ponies. But the workers were kind enough to let Ubaid sit on one. 

Fennec Foxes!


Then before we head home, Ubaid rode a fake horse and Spiderman. Yeay!

All in all, this place is rather a good place for parents to bring their kids. The place was very well maintained. I didn't smell any poop at all when I was there. I love that they made it stroller friendly. The animals were also well groomed ( I think ). The staff were rather helpful and friendly. Definitely will come again next time.
