Power Rangers Movie Review

POWER RANGERS follows five ordinary teens who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove—and the world—is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and before it’s too late, band together as the Power Rangers.


Watched Power Rangers with Trois yesterday evening at the Cineleisure cineplex.

Personally, I felt that this film was refreshing, direct though rather predictable. A simple plot which was carefully crafted. It was nice to see individuals, with different personality comes together as a community. Not only to accept one another strengths and weaknesses but also to achieve the same ultimate goal. The chemistry among the cast certainly made this film a watchable one too.

It also showed us the importance of teamwork and educated viewers never to be complacent. The intense and humour moments injected was awesome. The finale ended quite abruptly, which was a pity. However, I guess there will be a sequel for you to look forward!

One of the film that relive my childhood all over again!

Finished watching this Korean Drama - Defendant. Personally, I felt that the story had a smart plot, which kept me in good suspense. It was compact and nicely crafted, as though I am watching a movie instead.

Particularly, I enjoyed the progression in each episodes, which led me to pondered and followed them closely. There were also pretty good intense and thrilling moments injected as well. Though certain occurrence may appear somewhat coincidence and predictable, the story flow was commendable as a whole.

Kudos to Ji Sung acting capabilities! A versatile actor who did well in his craft! According to report, this film finishes strong with its highest ratings ever! If you enjoy such drama as much as I do, I would highly recommend you to catch this!

[Movie Review] Logan


Set in the future, Logan and Professor Charles Xavier must cope with the loss of the X-Men when a corporation led by Nathaniel Essex is destroying the world leaving it to destruction, with Logan's healing abilities slowly fading away and Xavier's Alzheimer's forcing him to forget.


Watched Logan with church pals last weekend at the Cathay cineplex.

Personally, I felt that the story was refreshing and compact though certain scenes appear rather draggy. Though a slow build up to its plot, it was nicely presented with a good story flow that was well-crafted.

There were pretty good intense and action scenes which kept me at the edge of my seat. Not to forget, those emotional scenes that was beautifully presented as well. Honestly, I am not a fan of the X-men series. However, as a stand-alone film, I will recommend you to catch it for its overall appeal. I believe this is one of the best installment.

It certainly put a great end to its finale!

[Tasting Invitation] the.twenty.cavan


The.twenty.cavan is a modern cuisine restaurant with strong Chinese influences. Its rustic dining area may be mistaken for a lightbulb showcase because the owners wanted to decorate it in such a way as to acknowledge Jalan Besar’s association with lighting shops. Andrew and Alex, are the owners and are both professional chefs.

Deep-fried Soft Shell Crab with curry chicken floss ($9)

Red Rice Braised Pork Ribs with roasted vegetables ($20)

A rather unique dish as red rice is not often seen in menus. The ribs was tender with the rice texture similar to a glutinous rice.

Canton Roast Chicken with homemade Thai chili sauce and black rice ($18)

The walnuts added crunch to the dish.

Crispy Fish & Chips ($17)

Batter was slightly thick but thankfully, the fish was fresh. It may not look presentable, but the freshness made up for it. It could have been better if there is dip in mayo for its dry texture.

Cavan Breakfast ($18)

It consists of brioche, bacon, pork bratwurst, sautéed button mushrooms, corn kernels and choice of eggs. A rather hearty breakfast perhaps?

Chicken Galangal Rice Bowl ($18)

A healthy dish to give it a try maybe?

Stir-fried Blueberry Lamb Chop with cous cous ($20)

The lamp chop was really tender, nicely coated with the sweetness of blueberry sauce.

Matcha Pudding with mixed berries, black sesame cream and a dollop of pulut hitam ($7)

Pumpkin Yam Puree with chilled coconut cream ($8)

Smooth and almost liquidy texture with both yam and pumpkin blended thoroughly. The hint of coconut added fragrance.
