Throwback/Fast 6 Movie Launch/Kuala Lumpur

Throwback/Fast 6 Movie Launch/Kuala Lumpur

This was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done … putting together the opening weekend activities for the launch of Fast 6 in Malaysia … it was an incredible experience and of course a great honour to be allowed to create a genuine “Fast & Furious” experience for Malaysian fans of the franchise.

Movie-goers who watched Fast 6 on opening weekend where we were could register for a ride in one of two cars (one was mine, the other was Wan’s awesome RWD Satria) … Everyone had a super good time, some of my friends like Remus Chang, Erwin Azizi, Blue Jackets, Tengku Djan and Adrian Cham also lent out some of their precious cars for display.

It truly was an epic event (every show was sold out on opening weekend) and I’d like to thank United International Pictures and the Summit KL for choosing to work with me and my team.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past – AWESOME

X-Men: Days Of Future Past - AWESOME

Finally watched X-Men: Days of Future Past last night.

Without a doubt it is now my favorite X-Men movie by far. Previously my favorite one was First Class.

One of the best things about Days of Future Past is that it fixes a lot of continuity problems from all the previous films, tying everything up nicely so the franchise can move forward.

This photo is my favorite scene in the movie … Super super dope … Quicksilver is awesome in the film.

X-Men Trivia: For those who don’t know, Pietro/Peter Maximoff aka Quicksilver, is actually Magneto’s son in the comics. In the film Peter asks Magneto what his mutation is. He tells him he can manipulate metal, to which he responds, “Really? My mom used to date a guy who could move metal”. and Magneto turns to face him with a shocked expression on his face. This is a reference to Quicksilver’s comic book counterpart whose father is Magneto.

Awesome film. I wanna watch it again!

P.S. Don’t forget to stay till the credits finish! 😉

Paul Newman – The Penultimate Daytona Ambassador

Paul Newman - The Penultimate Daytona Ambassador

For those who don’t know, the late American actor Paul Newman was the penultimate Rolex Daytona ambassador. It is said that he wore a Daytona every single day from 1972 (a gift from his wife when he took up motor racing) till his death in 2008.

Since then, the Daytona has steadily built up a cult following, and is now considered one of the Holy Grails of watch aficionados everywhere.

The original Daytonas were not really in demand when they launched in 1961, and were relatively inexpensive. Somewhere along the way the hype built up and last year Christie’s auction house sold a 1969 Daytona for over a million US dollars.

Not bad for a watch that was originally sold for USD210!

X-Men: Days Of Future Past Clip

20th Century Fox just released a clip of the opening clip of X-Men: Days Of Future Past and it looks awesome.

I’ve always been a huge fan of Colossus, so seeing him armor up in this clip is just so cool.

I hope he gets more screen time as compared to before!

Can’t wait to watch this!!!

The Turtles Are Back!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

I used to love Kevin Eastman & Peter Laird’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics when I was younger – they were cleverly written, ultra cynical and super edgy.

Now Michael Bay has produced (not directed) a new live action TMNT movie and I have to say it looks pretty awesome (albeit a little like Transformers but with turtles) … hopefully this will be better than the last shitty TMNT movie:
