I’m gonna post just the photos I took from my first morning in KL which I did a bit of sightseeing, going around to KL Tower and the Petronas Twin Towers. Lovely people, lovely sights, lovely nightlife. In short, I had an awesome time shooting and exploring that city, which I can safely say, that never sleeps.
If you people know the reason I went there, you know how to get to my Flickr and check out the stuff I took. Definitely not gonna post it here.
Might I suggest going to a kick ass show and see a lot of awesome local talents rocking it out? Maria’s gonna be there, and I Mean the Snakes are gonna be playing too. Well, ok, full disclosure, I did the shot for them for the poster. But hey, it’s for a good cause!
I was drinking water when a decidedly Jack Black-ian Po the Panda gestured as he had to climb up a seemingly finiteless number of steps towards the Jade Temple, that’s when I had the most terrible choking of my life. And the most rewarding!
This is one movie that everyone might enjoy. The parents who brought their wee lil demon spawns might enjoy a bit of respite watching this movie. I swear, the amount of sudden outburst of laughter might make the popcorn or water a dangerous weapon when propelled out of your nose.
In a decidedly refreshing move, Kung Fu Panda was made with a more mature audience in mind, with Jack Black as the main character Po, and a stellar cast of voice actors that includes Angelina Jolie and Jackie Chan of all people, this was not a movie specifically made just for kids. The jokes and comic timing were a bit more clever, and if you loved Jack Blacks other works in the musical and theatrical arena, you might recognize his signature all over the animation.
But let me talk about the 3D animation for a bit. I really liked the stylized animation style, and the gorgeous scenery that the characters interact in. Unlike the cold and plastic looking characters in Shrek, it has The Incredibles feel to it, as in the animation fits the subject matter.
The peach tree scene was really lovely, as the leaves floated among Master Oogway.
At the outset of this post I didn’t wanna ruin any of the big laughs for you, but I figured one out of many is good enough. Watch it with good natured people, and not frumpy ones, and I promise you guys will have a good time. 8/10.
The first thing I did when one of my all time favourite models comes back from her studies? Well, take her out for coffee, but after that, I make sure to arrange a series of shoots with her. Ryda, of Puteri Gunung Ledang fame.
