Evil Corporate Batman Must Die! Get em, Robocop!

Not a review.
No, not Robocop 4.
This is a new Robocop,
And he has a lot of heart.

First, Robocop.
Somehow I always remembered the old one as being kinda.... clunky.
Like Iron Man's Mach I suit.
This one is damn sleek and lean and mean.
And he comes in BLACK.
(plus he's Made in China)
(Shhh don't tell the Americans)

Look, It's Evil Corporate Batman!
I hate Evil Corporate Batman.
Someone smack him please.
And throw his Evil Marketing Minions off the building.
Evil Corporate Batman and Evil Psycho Military Roscharch.
Been awhile since I've seen such despicable baddies.

Got Batman must have Jim Gordon also lor.
But this is New Jim Gordon versus Old Batman.
And it's Bio-Genetics Expert Jim Gordon.
Also got Psycho Military Nut Rorschach.

Not bad wor.
Got story, got drama,
Action also quite good.
It's not as iconic as the first Robocop,
(I don't acknowledge Robocop 2 & 3)
But it's as pretty good update.

I bet Robocop would beat Iron Man in a fair fight.
Meaning no fancy schmancy flying or repulsor beams.
But in a good old punch-up
Then again, Tony Stark would probably just BUY Robocop.
Especially since Evil Corporate Batman loves money so much.

PS: Anyone else expected Sam L. Jackson to start singing
After his RA-RA AMARICARRRR speeches?

Jack Ryan doesn't seem to do jack

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.
Not a review.
More like Jack Bauer: The Movie.
Because it reminded me of a feature-length episode of 24.

Chris Pine is fine.
It's Jack Ryan that isn't.
Somehow the character seems so.... boring.
Yes yes, it's supposed to be a young version of him,
But what's so special about him?

Jason Bourne is a skilled assassin.
James Bond is well, James Bond.
Based on this movie, what is Jack Ryan?
Over-glorified financial analyst?

Ooooh, Keira Knightley.
Am I the only one who thinks she is wasted here?
Why is she stuck in the hapless girlfriend role here?
At least she wasn't annoying.
Compared to POTC, that is.
Cleavage rating: er... not much.

Action is decent, the plot is ho-hum,
Somehow the movie was just too... ordinary.
It's too formulaic,
And tried too hard to make us think Jack Ryan is awesome,
When he is just ... meh-some.
Go rewatch 24 better lar. Or the Bourne trilogy.

Magic Kilkenny Glass at the Merry Kilkenny Comedy!

We've been having a lot fun thanks to Kilkenny lately, and last Thursday, we had another fun night out thanks to the Kilkenny Comedy Night at 42East, TTDI.

Kilkenny and comedy? Why not, right? Besides, even if the jokes were not funny, we could always drink Kilkenny until they became funny! (or funny looking, whichever comes first).

42 East was PACKED that night. Seems a lot of people like comedy. Me, I like Kilkenny more. heh heh.

First thing I saw when I go there (after getting my beer from the bar, of course), was this Christmas tree, where guests could hang Kilkenny-shaped wishes on!

So pweeeetyyy:

The GAB Professional Solutions guys were there again, to tell us about the uniqueness of Kilkenny compared to other beers. Obviously, being an Irish Cream Ale (as opposed to the usual lager beers) with over 300 years history, there is still a lot to learn about Kilkenny.

We got to try Kilkenny with a variety of little titbits, including a bitter coffee jelly that helped to enhance the sweet, nutty flavours of the Kilkenny, and a meringue-like tart that helped to complement the maltiness of the beer.

So anyway, I managed to catch two of the acts that night - Jason Leong and Phoon Chi Ho, and they did a pretty decent job of keeping everyone laughing.

Our table especially, were actually having a lot of fun on our own already, thanks not just to the glasses of Kilkenny we were having, but also THIS MAGIC KILKENNY GLASS:


Here's KY trying to drink out of that magic Kilkenny glass:

You're doing it wrong, KY. Lemme show you how it's done:

Oh. Darn.

Eh wait, that's not beer, that's actually coffee jelly! Yum yum nom nom.

Here's some REAL Kilkenny:

Now that's more like it.

Fireangel seemed to enjoy it quite a bit:

So did Suan and Terence:

Though Terence later got distracted by the siew yoke:

Oooh, we also had a lot of fun taking pictures with the polaroids outside!

Check out KY's photobomb in the upper left picture LOL.

Anyway, it was a fun night out with great friends and lots of Kilkenny again!

Look ma, it's me having a ball inside a Kilkenny ball! LOL
