Coverage: Press Conference of Astro Family Go Cuti “全家Go Cuti”
July 2014, Kuala Lumpur – Following the
success of travel programme “背包Go Cuti”, a
brand new concept of this programme titled “全家Go Cuti” is
coming soon. It is featuring a “family” of hosts consisting of last year “经典名曲歌唱大赛” finalists 钟丽珍and 庄盛, last year “Astro 新秀大赛” Rax王郑浚仁&
Miss Astro Chinese International Pageant
finalist, Fancy Goh吴胤婷.
These four hosts are not just new to the
series, they are also “菜鸟”(rookie)
in hosting a show. All of them have their own unique characteristic. 钟丽珍is friendly, 庄盛 is full of sense
of humor, Rax王郑浚仁is
energetic while Fancy is sweet. This
combination will surely bring a lot of surprises to the audiences.
Coverage of the press conference!
During the press conference, the hosts shared about their own personal experience and thoughts related to the show. 丽珍was a bit concern of her family at the earlier stage of filming. 庄盛on the other hand utilized his sense of humor to cover up his fear in hosting. It is also a new challenge for Fancy and Rax to host because they need to speak more than they did during their previous competitions.
Nearly a decade has passed since the incident
in “Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes”.
Caesar is currently the leader of a growing nation of genetically evolved apes.
They are currently threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating
virus unleashed a few years ago. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves
short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will
determine who will emerge as Earth's dominant species.
What is the issue
that brought human and apes to this brink of war?
happen to Caesar and his fellow apes? And how will the fate of human survivors
turned out to be?
Let’s explore the planet of the apes in your
nearest cinema now.
"Dawn of The Planet Of The
Apes " is even better and bigger than the first movie. The first is
already very good but this sequel has achieved the similar standard set in the predecessor
and is even more improved in many aspects.
really great to see Caesar as the leader for his tribe of genetically evolved
apes. Besides Caesar, we were also able to see the comeback of other apes from
the first movie such as Maurice (the
orangutan), Koba (the experimental
apes) and etc.
plot for this sequel is very good and often offers surprises which you do not
expect coming. Nonetheless, it clearly depicts how tension could be built up
between two different species and also shows us how war actually emerged. The story-telling is very nicely done as it
cleverly brings out the emotions from both sides of the species and highlights
on how family really matters for both side. The atmosphere of post-outbreak of
simian flu is presented realistically and it makes the audiences empathize the
complication suffered by the human survivors in the film.
pacing of the movie is also very well-balanced. There are quite a number of
battle scenes with intermittent sit-back and relax moments blended with
conversations which are essential for the story to proceed. Although it is a 2
hours plus movie, you won’t feel tired or bored at all even when you are just
watching a chit-chat session between apes.
development is also very good for both the human side and the ape side. We can
see how Caesar has grown over the years and we can see the unwavering
leadership in him this time around. Plus, he now has a family and there is some
family conflict for him too. Besides Caesar, another ape which steals the spotlight
is Koba. His hatred towards human still persisted and we can see how he spread
the hate to humans among his other fellow apes. On the human side, we havea new human protagonist, Malcolm who is a very good guy and he
is the first one among the survivors to place so much trust on the apes. He has
quite a lot of screenplay time too and the movie has successfully made us care
about him too.
acting aspect, I personally felt that the motion actors for the apes totally deserved
praises. Andy Serkis and Toby Kebbell are really great in
portraying Caesar and Koba. Their gestures in acting as apes
are remarkable. I doubt the effect would be the same if it was performed by
other motion actors. Apart from that, I think Gary Oldman has stood out with his character Dreyfus despite of his
brief appearance time. His acting is very convincing and nonetheless has brought
in more emotional sentiments to the movie. Jason
Clarke has put up a good show as Malcolm
also very obvious that the CGI animation
effect has greatly improved compared to the first one. This is evidenced by
the ape‘s facial expression which are more realistic and enhanced compared to
the first one. The motion capture was prominently smoother than the first one.
Even the close-up capturing of Caesar’s face will convince the viewers that, “Hey,
that’s a real ape right there.”
In addition, the background music
and score is fascinating too. The epicness of the music can be felt and it
harmonized well too with the emotions of every scene.
I really wish the movie could be
longer so that we can see how the outcome is after the final scene. But of
course, the movie length would be too long if the film is prolonged. Currently,
the movie length is just nice but it did make me wish for a sequel to come.
I like about the movie:
Better sequel compared to the already good first movie.
plot with clever storytelling.
I dislike about the movie:
1.The ending is baiting me and made
me eagerly wished for the sequel to come soon. (which is actually a good thing
This movie deserves a 9.0/10.0!
the dawn of epicness! A superb movie which everyone would love!
recommended to those who love the first movie and to everyone else who are
looking for a great movie-not-to-be-missed this year!” – WLJack
brings us a message: it's not who we are underneath, but what we do that
defines us! Great movie!” – Fellow reviewer, CYY
only people who would hate this movie are those who hate apes or those who just
want some simple fun instead of a movie which can bring you thoughts about
survivor and war. Of course, there are still many good movies available these
past two months. But you might miss one of the best ones if you do not watch
Million thanks to Nuffnang for the opportunity to attend the #NNPremiereScreening of
