MOVIE REVIEW

Edit Posted by with No comments


TRAIN TO BUSAN


Cast: Gong Yoo, Kim Soo-an, Jung Yu-mi, Ma Dong-seok, Kim Eui-sung, Choi Woo-sik, An So-hee, Shim Eun-kyung
Director: Yeon Sang-ho
Screenwriters: Park Joo-suk, Yeon Sang-ho



Now, I want to give a review for movie, the title is Train to Busan. I will explain to you why I recommend this movie. For you information, Train to Busan has made approximately 99 million US dollars in it’s opening release, making it the first South Korean movie to reach over 10 million viewers worldwide! Isn’t that amazing?? First of all for make you more understand what this movie about, this is the plot and the link of the trailer:  
Train to Busan follows Seok Woo (Yoo Gong) a fund manager whose busy work lifestyle has driven him to divorce, and left him with custody of a daughter (Kim Soo-an) who he has also become distant with. To make the situation right, he agrees to take her on a journey from Seoul to Busan to see her mother for her birthday, but little do they know that a person infected by a nuclear plant virus has boarded the train with them and there lies the beginning of a cinematically engaging journey via the famous KTX railroad. TRAILER TRAIN TO BUSAN

Train to Busan mixes breathless action with ravenous flesh-eaters or we called it zombie. And all of the horror business is built upon rich emotionality and fully realized characters, which lends the action that much more sharp and exciting.
Ok, now I am going to explain why I recommend this movie. It’s because the cast, and I think the main lead/ actor in Train To Busan is do a greatly acting. He is Gong Yoo, he played as Seok Woo and he is a workaholic. He lives with his mother and barely spends any time with his daughter Su-an (Kim Su-an). He’s so distant from her that he buys her a Nintendo Wii for her birthday, ignoring that she has one already, and that he’s the one who bought it for her for Children’s Day. To make up for this rather-awkward moment, he agrees to give Su-an what she really wants—a trip to her mother’s home in Busan, 280 miles away. It’s just an hour train ride from Seoul. What could possibly go wrong? Even the set-up is a thematic beauty, as this is more than just a train ride for Seok-woo and Su-an—it’s a journey into the past as a father tries to mend bridges and fix that which may be dead. It’s a perfect setting for a zombie movie. 

In my opinion, there’s not one dull moment through the entire film! Su-an is literally bugging her father to take her on the train for come to her mother, so it’s quite natural to sympathize with the daughters emotions. Once things completely go left and the zombies enter, the father’s character completely turns from selfish to heroic. I think each character plays their role flawlessly!

Next is because the special effects.  Most people would agree, zombie movies drive a fine line between cinematic genius or over the top and vulgar. But Train to Busan was not at all the latter, the right amount of rejoining broken bones, rabid feeding scenes and breathtaking make up make it cinematic genius in my opinion.



The film is two hours long and it does suffer slightly from an extended third act. A genre work like this is usually best left at 90 minutes, but Train To Busan developed it very well. The film itself end with an unexpectedly touching finale which ties things together rather nicely. But actually, I don’t recommend this movie for those that scared to see blood and didn’t like gory things.



Train to Busan is a fun ride I think. It's tense, gory and at times pretty spectacular, and while there isn't a whole lot going on under the surface, the attention given to the human characters lends it an air of substance too often missing from modern zombie horror. Train to Busan give a  good performances, and impressive direction from Yeon, and it's a very easy film to recommend for the jaded zombie fan. Everything about Train To Busan just works, even the subtitles. In many foreign films, they can be a distraction but not this time. For any zombie lover, Train To Busan will be a win.

In short, the pros: Fantastic performances, subversion of zombie tropes, relentless pacing, tension and thrills, and efficient storytelling/ character details
The contras: Ending can be a bit sappy and overlong

Yeah, that’s the movie review from me, leave a comment if you have watched it and share your opinion! Thank youuu

PLAYING WITH FISH – MY HOLIDAY




On December of 31st until January of 3rd my family and I went to Lampung. For your information, it was my first time went to Lampung because it was not my hometown so it was really a holiday!
On December of 31st around 8.00 AM my family and I prepared some clothes and the other things. We went to Lampung with POC. POC is a car community, Pajero Owner Community. If I’m not mistaken it was 18 cars that went to Lampung, can you imagine the situation back then so lively?
On that night, we went to rallying point (KM 125) around 11.00 PM. We were gathering 2.00 AM, unfortunately we got a traffic jam. So, it took about 2,5 hours to get there. We arrived in KM 125 but fortunately POC waited for us, how lucky!
After that, my sister and I bought some snack and the trip went on again. We were head to Merak Harbor because we wanted to cross the sea by ship. On the way to Merak Harbor, my family slept except my father HAHAHA because my father was driving.


Time flews, my family and I arrived in Merak Harbor around shubuh time. My cars went to a ship, in the ship for cars park it so hot. We went to the upper of ship, the upper was so cold unlike the cars park my family and I took an AC room. I went to the highest of the ship, from there, I saw many mans swimming and asked for some money. When I throwed 1000 doit, he shouted “5000 mba digulung!”. I didn’t brought some money, then I went to my room again on second floor. On the ship, I slept again while enjoying a beautiful scenery.
Then when I woke up my wristband showed me that it was 11.00 AM. My belly rings, haha it was breakfast time! We arrived in Bakauheni! OMG I didn’t believe that I have went to Sumatra, even just south Sumatra. After we arrived to Bakauheni we searched for food around Bakauheni. 



We stopped in a Restaurant, I forgot the Restaurant name, hehe. I remembered that on 11.00 PM I arrived in Aston Lampung City Hotel. My family booked two rooms, it was a connecting room. Then on that day, January of 1st we slept.
On January of 2nd in the morning all POC members gathered in the Lobby after breakfast on Restaurant Hotel. We would go to Pahawang Beach. 


Every families took the car and head to Pahawang Beach. We arrived on Pahawang Beach at 11.30 AM. Our plan was snorkeling, yuhuuu! We took a boat and it took about a hour to be on the middle of the Pahawang sea. We were told to use a life jacket and a googles. In the middle of the Pahawang, I submerge my body. Even the weather was hot but the water still cold! When I looked from my googles, I seeing an amazing view! Everything was just so amazing, the corals, fishes, even the marine plants. We were snorkeling for about 2 hours, of course my skin get tanned. Then we took a ship again. After we arrived in the opposite land, we had a meal and a coconut. It was so refreshing! Then we went back to cars park and head to the Hotel again. I will end my Holiday story here because if I continue, it will make it so looong hehe.

An Inspiring People

Edit Posted by with No comments


OPRAH WINFREY

Oprah has been an inspiration to me and to millions of people across America.  From her book club, interviews, roadtrips and her famous "My Favorite Things" show where everyone in the audience is given thousands of dollars of merchandise, Oprah has been a front runner in daytime television for the last 25 years.  I believe Oprah came up with the saying "Pay it Forward" where you give help to someone for no reason other than hoping that person will pay it forward also.  Oprah has come up with such simple ideas that make you think to yourself why didn't I think of that.

From her humble beginnings Oprah has shown that anyone can do anything, and overcome anything, if they put their mind to it.  Oprah is one of the most generous human beings on earth, sure she is one of the richest, but she gives so much more, she is deserving of a humanitarian award if anyone ever was. So, take a look to Oprah Biography

Born on 29 January, 1954 in Mississippi, Oprah Winfrey is best recognized for worthy actress and author as well. Concerning her education, she received the doctorate degree from Harvard University. Encountering poverty in childhood, she became capable of receiving the pair of shoes at the age of 6; an amazing reality. Owing to her desperate childhood, she set her mind to compensate her living with success one day.
As a matter of fact, she was so intelligent that she had learned to read at the age of only 3. Moreover, during her childhood, she retained her habit of memorizing 20 new vocabulary words per week. These are few realities that turned her towards triumph incorporating the place of bestselling author today.
But, did you know that Oprah had a difficult childhood? Her name was supposed to be Orpah, from the Bible, but because of the difficulty of spelling and pronunciation, she was known as Oprah almost from birth. Winfrey's unmarried parents separated soon after she was born and left her in the care of her maternal grandmother on the farm.
As a child, Winfrey entertained herself by "playacting" in front of an "audience" of farm animals. Under the strict guidance of her grandmother, she learned to read at two and a half years old. She addressed her church congregation about "when Jesus rose on Easter Day" when she was two years old. Then Winfrey skipped kindergarten after writing a note to her teacher on the first day of school saying she belonged in the first grade. She was promoted to third grade after that year.
At six years old Winfrey was sent north to join her mother and two half-brothers in a Milwaukee ghetto, an extremely poor and dangerous neighborhood. At twelve years old she was sent to live with her father in Nashville, Tennessee. Feeling secure and happy for a brief period she began making speeches at social gatherings and churches, and one time earned five hundred dollars for a speech. She knew then that she wanted to be "paid to talk."
Winfrey, again, was called back by her mother, and she had to leave the safety of her father's home. The poor, urban lifestyle had its negative effect on Winfrey as a young teenager, and her problems were compounded by repeated sexual abuse, starting at age nine, by men that others in her family trusted. Isn’t that scary? Her mother worked odd jobs and did not have much time for supervision.
After years of bad behavior, Winfrey's mother sent her back to her father in Nashville.

So, why can Oprah became famous? Here are the turning point…
Winfrey said her father saved her life. He was very strict and provided her with guidance, structure, rules, and books. He required his daughter to complete weekly book reports, and she went without dinner until she learned five new vocabulary words each day.
Winfrey became an excellent student, participating as well in the drama club, debate club, and student council. In an Elks Club speaking contest, she won a full scholarship to Tennessee State University. The following year she was invited to a White House Conference on Youth. Winfrey was crowned Miss Fire Prevention by WVOL, a local Nashville radio station, and was hired by the station to read afternoon newscasts.
Winfrey became Miss Black Nashville and Miss Tennessee during her freshman year at Tennessee State. The Nashville Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) affiliate offered her a job; Winfrey turned it down twice, but finally took the advice of a speech teacher, who reminded her that job offers from CBS were "the reason people go to college." The show was seen each evening on WTVF-TV, and Winfrey was Nashville's first African American female coanchor of the evening news. She was nineteen years old and still a sophomore in college.

For her career, After Winfrey graduated, WJZ-TV in Baltimore, Maryland, scheduled her to do the local news updates, called cut-ins, during Good Morning, America, and soon she was moved to the morning talk show Baltimore Is Talking with cohost Richard Sher. After seven years on the show, the general manager of WLS-TV, American Broadcasting Company's (ABC) Chicago affiliate, saw Winfrey in an audition tape sent in by her producer, Debra DiMaio. At the time her ratings in Baltimore were better than Phil Donahue's, a national talk-show host, and she and DiMaio were hired.

Winfrey moved to Chicago, Illinois, in January 1984 and took over as anchor on A.M. Chicago, a morning talk show that was consistently last in the ratings. She changed the emphasis of the show from traditional women's issues to current and controversial (debatable) topics, and after one month the show was even with Donahue's program. Three months later it had inched ahead. In September 1985 the program, renamed the Oprah Winfrey Show, was expanded to one hour. As a result, Donahue moved to New York City.
In 1985 Quincy Jones (1933–) saw Winfrey on television and thought she would make a fine actress in a movie he was coproducing with director Steven Spielberg (1946–). The film was based on the Alice Walker (1944–) novel The Color Purple. Her only acting experience until then had been in a one-woman show, The History of Black Women Through Drama and Song, which she performed during an African American theater festival in 1978.
The popularity of Winfrey's show skyrocketed after the success of The Color Purple, and in September 1985 the distributor King World bought the syndication rights (the rights to distribute a television program) to air the program in one hundred thirty-eight cities, a record for first-time syndication. That year, although Donahue was being aired on two hundred stations, Winfrey won her time slot by 31 percent, drew twice the Chicago audience as Donahue, and carried the top ten markets in the United States.
In 1986 Winfrey received a special award from the Chicago Academy for the Arts for unique contributions to the city's artistic community and was named Woman of Achievement by the National Organization of Women. The Oprah Winfrey Show won several Emmys for Best Talk Show, and Winfrey was honored as Best Talk Show Host.
