Xiaoyao performed at Victoria Theatre earlier tonight. I was very impressed by his indian dance performance! didn't know he could move like that :p I was pleasantly surprised i enjoyed myself. Have always liked indian music... i don't know why, maybe some of them just sounded so sad and heart wrenching (though i don't understand a word)... I am so inspired tonight, I have decided to post two music vids of one of my all time fave musicians, Nitin Sawhney.
He's a London based musician/composer who fused his indian classical training with jazz, drum 'n' bass, hip hop elements to stunning results. His music is intensely political, commonly approaching themes of identity, immigration, empowerment, multiculturalism, poverty and spirituality. Check out these two vids, one is a music video and another a live performance, enjoy! :

Cineleisure has not released listing till now... think it's better to just shift to The Cathay. Sorry!
This is the movie I've been waiting for ever since i saw the trailer.
From the beloved best-selling series of books comes "The Spiderwick Chronicles," a fantasy adventure for the child in all of us. Peculiar things start to happen the moment the Grace family (Jared, his twin brother Simon, sister Mallory and their mom) leave New York and move into the secluded old house owned by their great, great uncle Arthur Spiderwick. Unable to explain the strange disappearances and accidents that seem to be happening on a daily basis, the family blames Jared. When he, Simon and Mallory investigate what's really going on, they uncover the fantastic truth of the Spiderwick estate and of the creatures that inhabit it.
Date: 22 March 2008
Venue: The Cathay

I know someone I love very much is very excited about this movie :)
14-year-old boy Shinji arrives in Tokyo-3, a heavily fortified outpost that's survived "Second Impact," a calamity leaving humankind vulnerable to alien machines referred to as Angels. Last hope for survival rests with government agency NERV (whose motto reads, "God is in his heaven, all is right with the world") and its gigantic Evangelion fighting artillery, a human-mechanical hybrid designed by Shinji's distant father, Gendou.
This looks like a really exiting anime, most reviews have been very positive! It's also the Japan's no. 1 box office movie. So hope you would join us. I know the notice is pretty sudden, but just realized it opens today!
Date: 16 March 2008
Venue: Orchard Cineleisure
Please sign up as soon as possible as I would like to close the listing 15 March midnight cos I expect people will snap up the tickets.
See you guys soon! Vitalauto

Primary Colours: Feng Zhengjie
This exhibition extends from 29 January 2008 to 20 April 2008.
Here is an excerpt from Singapore Art Museum's website about art of Feng Zhengjie:
"If the eyes are the windows to one's soul, then the art of Feng Zhengjie can be said to reveal as much as they conceal, the psyche of the self, in contemporary society. A renowned artist in the contemporary Chinese art scene, the works of Feng Zhengjie examine consumer society while engaging with a spectrum of folk art motifs and popular culture as a response to the new issues that are confronting China. This exhibition includes a special focus on his recent works of women portraits which the artist is known for. Charming, capricious and contradictory, Feng Zhengjie’s women present an ambivalent answer to the question of nature and artifice that continues to captivate. At the same time, Primary Colours is an invitation to discover the different shades of meaning in Feng’s art." - taken from Singapore Art Museum website
Venue: Singapore Art Museum, 71 Bras Basah Road
Date: 15th March 08, Saturday
Time: 2pm (Lets all meet at the lobby/entrance of the museum)
Admission Price: SGD $8.00

So all the night shifts I've endured during the weekends didn't go to waste, as I had the opportunity to watch this series at my own leisure! (I hope my boss don't see this... well double pun intended!) But what really strike me was the really clever and amusing script thats totally unconventional and non-linear, depicting what its like to be around the "Medium", Allison Dubois's everyday life (Starred by Patricia Arquette). The perfect marriage of everyday family drama infused with the sense of supernatural "tang" really defines the genre of Mystery and suspense, and at the same time putting forth a whimsical spin to the narrative. (But that is a really general explanation of what it is about... Read more about it at NBC's website.
What makes it even more exciting is her struggle with her abilities (Which is not like what you see in Heroes...) of ESP and precognition with her career as a "consultant" for a local District Attorney. It is interesting how she got into the job as a consultant as she does not have any relevant Law Degree nor experience. So all of her talent lies in her revelations and precognitions of murders (that comes to her in her sleep as dreams) and clues she provides to the Police Department, to help solve crimes and capture mass murderers. In which she was then questioned in the eye of the Law, whether her abilities are credible and should she be recognized for her work as a consultant. There is one particular episode where she was forced to lie in court during a trial as the US Justice system will not take her claims as a legit source.
Allison Dubois is a real person living in Phoenix, Arizona in the US who wrote several books dealing with the aspects of dealing with spirits and mediumship. This series Medium, is actually inspired by her work as a Jury consultant and solving crimes for Texas Rangers and the Glendale, Arizona police department. You can read more about her here
Well I'm not so keen on reading her books, but I do recommend that if you are into the supernatural and good entertainment, Medium, Tv Series Season 1 & 2 are available on Amazon or all the other major online book stores. Here's an extended preview of the show from youtube. Enjoy!

For XiaoYao and some of us who actually have some general idea and knowledge about the history of the world and of evolution, the film simply filled laughing gas into our stomachs as the film progressed... and I realized that our little giggles and mini-jokes actually disturbed some really intense and focused film-goers. (I think this film has so much potential to be made into a spoof instead!)
Not to slam the film on the face too hard, generally I feel that this is by far the worst film director Roland Emmerich had ever made in his career. But nonetheless, maybe we should applaud his courage in taking up the challenge of separating Fiction with Non-fiction methods of making this film into the mainstream "Action & Adventure" genre. Why I said this is because the film generally was not accurately anchored by the facts of history or of evolution-science but more likely of a very fictional based narrative mode. Telling of a "legend" and of a "Story" handed down by generations, almost seemed very inappropriate for its film title: 10,000 B.C.?
I guess I am rather confused with this film because Roland Emmerich made some very good science-fiction films (in my opinion) like Independence Day &The Day After Tomorrow etc. and now this? Hmmm... potentially-spoofy!

Post is closed... thank you all! Those who are going please meet at ticketing counter at 9:20pm. Try not to be late... :D
Labeled as an Action/Adventure flick... I'm sure nothing can go wrong with this one... here's a brief synopsis of the film:
"From director Roland Emmerich ("Independence Day," "The Day After Tomorrow") comes a sweeping odyssey into a mythical age of prophesies and gods, when spirits rule the land and mighty mammoths shake the earth.
In a remote mountain tribe, the young hunter D'Leh (Steven Strait) has found his heart's passion - the beautiful Evolet (Camilla Belle). But when a band of mysterious warlords raid his village and kidnap Evolet, D'Leh leads a small group of hunters to pursue the warlords to the end of the world to save her. As they venture into unknown lands for the first time, the group discovers there are civilizations beyond their own and that mankind's reach is far greater than they ever knew. At each encounter the group is joined by other tribes who have been attacked by the slave raiders, turning D'Leh's once-small band into an army..." - taken from the 10,000 BC movie website
