Took Friday off from work, for nothing. Well, at least I did something which I haven't done for years, watching midnight movie show. I couldn't really remember when was the last time but I could well remember back in 1993 when a bunch of us sneaked out from school to watch a midnight show but couldn't remember what movie was that since the thrill is more on the sneaking out part than the movie itself.
So, I catched '300' on Thursday midnight. It was cool going for midnight show on weekday, as not many people are around. The movie sucks big time! An easy fighting/battle plot, like other battle movies, but unlike Braveheart! And I just couldn't understand how could 300 muscular semi-naked Greek warriors in speedos win every battle even against the deadliest beast, even elephants they brought from India and millions of Persian army. Nothing to shout about the movie. Again, it's the thrill (of going out for midnight show) than the movie itself.
And on Friday, after getting my car equipped with audio system that's compatible to my new love (my iPod), went for a local treat. Curse me as everyone else had watched this movie, some for more than once, and it's my first time. So, Mukhsin was a much better movie than '300'. Winner at the Berlin International Film Festival, the movie is the prequel to Sepet, Gubra and Rabun. I didn't know this until I read movie reviews the next day. Like both the lead actor/actress, really touching.
