Yet another movie from comic giant 'Marvel' and I must say I'm impressed!!! Frankly speaking I didn't expect to enjoy from this movie but I did... I'm not really a comic freak so I didn't have any clue on what the 'Guardians of The Galaxy' is all about... I only know a few that is made famous by silver screen such as 'Spiderman', 'Thor', 'X-Men', 'The Incredible Hulk' and etc... So this is really something new for me...

I really didn't expect the formation of the 'Guardian' this way as they are some of the least likely hero...But at least it is something different from the norm... Nothing fancy about the storyline but I really do enjoy it... Don't know whether is it the 'IMAX 3D' version that I've watched that causes this... This is my first time watching 'IMAX 3D' and I'm really impressed!!! Awesome!!! I usually don't watch 3D as I find it nothing special with little 3D effect most of the time and not forgetting about the glasses... Don't really like wearing them... But 'IMAX 3D' is on a whole different level... 

I believe most movie freak would have watch this movie by now but I will still encourage those who have not watch this movie to give it a try... A double thumbs up from me...

I'm really excited as 'Lucy' is finally screening in 'Malaysia'... The reason why I'm so anxious about this movie is pretty simple... 'Scarlett Johansson', my GODDESS!!! Ok that is part of the reason... Actually the main reason is because I'm curious to know what man kind will achieve when they use more than 10% of the brain... 

The first part of the movie is enjoyable but I can't say the same when it gets to the end... I just can't accept the fact that man kind is able to perform all those things that 'Lucy' did when she started using more than 50% of the brain... When it reaches 100%, I'm thinking of leaving the cinema already as it is just too absurd for me to digest... Maybe this is really the potential of what we can do when we use more than what we are utilizing our brain power now... Maybe, just maybe... But full credit goes to the writer as their imagination is beyond compare... Maybe they are using more brain power compare to us???

Anyway watch this movie with an open mind and maybe you will accept what they portray but for me, this doesn't make it... I'm not convince!!!

I don't like the norm... If a lot of people like one particular thing, chances of me hating it is bloody high!!! I like to be unique and I don't like my things to stay original for long especially for car, computer or gadget related item... I like to mix things around and you can see from my car and my computers as well as my mobile phone... All these items had been tinkered with... 

My 'FrankenBenz' originally German but I've decided to throw in a Japanese heart!!! My old 'Galaxy Nexus' running all kinds of custom ROMS and the latest one with 'MIUI'... My desktop computer running 'Mac OSX' permanently... And the latest thing that my itchy hand laid on is my trusty old 'IBM Thinkpad' and 'HP Mini'... Both antique and really a pain in the ass with 'Microsoft Windows' in it... Extremely slow and unresponsive!!! In fact I stopped using them at all and they just sit there collecting dust!!! 

Thanks to the Internet, I decided to try 'Linux'... 'Ubuntu' is the first that I tried... Really lovely... Interface is really pretty and easy to use... But too bad the requirement is rather high... My 'HP Mini' is running fine but is just too laggy!!! Do some research and decided to give 'Lubuntu' and 'Xubuntu' a try... Both design to run on low spec machine as the 'OS' is pretty light... Tried 'Lubuntu" first as is the lightest among all 'buntu' and I'm really impressed!!! Lighting fast compared to 'Windows'... The only downside is the 'OS' is too barebone for my liking... So after one week of trying decided to give 'Xubuntu' a try as it is somewhere in the middle... Pretty light but not too bare... And you know what??? I love it!!! Definitely not as fast as 'Lubuntu' but it is so much nicer so I'm going to stick with it until I find something to replace it... 

So goodbye 'Windows'... You served me well over the years but too bad our relationship is short term as I found something much better to replace you!!!
