Ulasan filem: SUICIDE SQUAD

Yup, it’s sucks. I may have not watch this movie again but I wanna see a sequel because the squad is cool played by cool actors. My problem of the movie is the villains (the squad is not the villains…). It makes the movie looks like The Mummy. And I fuckin hate The Mummy.

Aku ada kerisauan bila David S Goyer yang dah jadi macam that DC guy untuk Warner Bros mula take charge pada material DCEU, nasib baik dia tak ada dalam SS. But was it good bila ia di tangan David Ayer? Pertama sekali, aku suka Fury, filem terdahulu hasilan pengarah SS, David Ayer sedang David S Goyer (penulis Batman v Superman) never prove himself worth in directing mantel. Skrip Goyer adakala bermasalah (kalau tiada campurtangan Jonathan Nolan). Goyer simply was there as a comic book guy (yang merisaukan aku juga bila dia semacam Kevin Fiege untuk dunia DC, nasib baik Geoff Johns dah take charge). Aku rasa BvS mungkin nampak ok sikit ialah sebab Chris Terrio helped Goyer with the writing. Aku sebenarnya ada rasa risau bila two minds handling the script and both came with different view and take on the subject but somehow have to make amend. Kacau jadinya. Goyer ni tak konsisten. You can praise the guy for Dark City but the same cannot be said about Ghost Rider.
David Ayer as a director tak tau orang gila ni macam mana. Have a look at his version of Joker. Joker is a waste. Bukan masalah performance Jared Leto tapi the writing of the character by Ayer. Orang macam Tim Burton tau bagaimana nak bikin surprise yang tidak terjangka dengan watak ini. Ayer ni straight up guns, male masculinity, SWAT and military. Tak ada benda yang weird, odd and quirky that’s supposed to be on SS. I think the the Gunman in Kambing Suit should get more screen time. Jared Leto ni aku tengok siap a nod to Alan Moore dalam Killing Joke. Tapi entry dia main tembak bertubi-tuni je. Ok lagi Adi Putra dengan rambut blonde dalam KL. Gangster. “Abah tak abah.” Kita faham event dalam Suicide Squad ni setup untuk Justice League next year. Tengok pula different writer/director punya take on Joker sebab Ayer dah memang tak boleh pergi. Cuma Captain Boomerang je yang awesome gila. Aku pun dah lupa dia pernah jadi Kyle Reese. That’s quite a transformation. Paling best Boomerang ni, orang lain mintak mesin kopi, BET, dia tak mintak apa-apa. Tapi action wise, David Ayer work nothing on Boomerang. Nak campak boomerang pun susah. This is quite odd for a director like Ayer.

Next, I’m sick of this Cara Develigne girl. Dia sebagai Enchantress ialah villain yang paling teruk dan bodoh yang hanya berjoget untuk berlawan dengan SS. Stick to modelling je lah.

And to conclude, it’s 6/10 from me.

SUICIDE SQUAD ialah filem arahan dan tulisan David Ayer, lakonan Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Cara Delevingne dan Viola Davis, berdasarkan watak-watak DC Comics, edaran di Malaysia sejak 4 Ogos 2016 oleh WARNER BROS. PICTURES.

KUALA LUMPUR, 24 August 2016: Shopee, a leading mobile-first marketplace in SEA, today officially announced the first ever Shopee 9.9 – Mobile Shopping Day. Slated to be the biggest mobile shopping festival ever, Shopee will offer many attractive deals and promotions for 24 hours non-stop, including live auctions for mobile phones with bids starting at RM 9.90, special picks under RM 9 and exclusive partner offers.

“The uptake of mobile shopping has far exceeded our expectations and Shopee is now the leading marketplace in the region. We would like to mark September 9 as a milestone to usher in a new era where everyone is free to shop online, anytime and anywhere, via their mobile phones”, said Ian Ho, Regional Managing Director of Shopee.

Since officially launching across Southeast Asia and Taiwan in December 2015, Shopee has experienced significant growth in all countries. As of July 2016, Shopee Malaysia has amassed over 2 million installs. Across all markets, Shopee has over 20 million installs, 250,000 daily orders and an annualised gross merchandise value (GMV) of USD 1.3 billion, making it the fastest growing marketplace in the region.
With over 71% of the population owning a smartphone and more than 18 million people being active mobile internet users, mobile shopping has seen a rapid uptake in Malaysia. Based on a research done by Mastercard in 20151, 47% of Malaysians have made a purchase using their mobile phones and this number continues to grow exponentially.

Ho explained, “Malaysia has one of the highest smartphone penetration in the region. Stable infrastructure and increase in affluence are strong factors that contribute to Malaysia’s readiness in welcoming this new era of mobile shopping. This is why we built Shopee as a mobile-first platform that focuses on providing a convenient way for anybody to buy and sell”.

Ho added, “One of our most popular features is the in-app live chat, which allows buyers to communicate directly with sellers. We have since facilitated over 430 million chats across the region, with 30 new chats every second. This allows us to support buyers in a myriad of ways, such as finding out more product details, checking on order status and seeking after-sales support.”

To make 9 September even more special, Shopee has enlisted partners such as Maybank, Digi and Tune Protect to join in the celebration. “These are giants in their respective industries who are on the same page as us in embracing the mobile revolution. We look forward to even more exciting collaboration opportunities ahead”, Ho said.

On 9 September, Malaysians can expect to enjoy 24 hours of non-stop deals and promotions, such as bi-hourly flash sales and exclusive picks from top categories at insanely low prices.

Terima kasih kepada empat orang tukang jahit dan pereka fesyen tetap Kampung Rukun iaitu Zaitun, Faridah, Mariam dan Salmi.

Pada satu hari, kedai jahit Zaitun, Faridah, Mariam dan Salmi didatangi seorang pelanggan dari Kuala Lumpur. Pelanggan tersebut menyaksikan bakat mereka yang begitu sofistikated tetapi hairan dengan kesederhanaan kedai mereka. Pelanggan tersebut mencadangkan agar mereka memohon geran untuk peniaga kecil di Kuala Lumpur bagi melebarkan lagi sayap mereka.

Dari sinilah mereka bermula untuk melangkah keluar dari zon selesa di kampung dan berhijrah ke kesibukan kota Kuala Lumpur.

Dalam mereka mengejar impian, nilai persahabatan mereka akan menemui pelbagai ujian. Dapatkah mereka mengharunginya atau adakah mereka akanberputus-asa? Persahabatan, perpaduan dan kegigihan adalah antara nilai-nilai yang akan dipaparkan di dalam teater muzikal ini.

Getting Things Done: Evolution of the Built Environment in Vorarlberg @ GALERI PETRONAS

KUALA LUMPUR, 15 July 2016 – To celebrate Austria’s architectural excellence and innovation, GALERI PETRONAS in collaboration with the Austrian Embassy in Kuala Lumpur yesterday launched a travelling exhibition titled, “Getting Things Done: Evolution of the Built Environment in Vorarlberg”.
Officiated by Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Austria Christophe Ceska, the exhibition features 70 panels that showcase the evolution and current state of Vorarlberg’s distinctive built environment.

GALERI PETRONAS is the first Asian stop and the only venue in Malaysia to host this global-touring exhibition.

Speaking at the launch, PETRONAS Senior General Manager of Group Strategic Communications, Zahariah Abd Rahman said, “With megatrends of globalisation and urbanisation posing complex challenges to this growing region, it calls for an urgency to cope, thrive and get things done. This project signifies the qualities of pioneers, which are qualities that resonate with PETRONAS in its own quest for sustainable progress.”

Vorarlberg is a mountainous state in western Austria, bordered by Germany, Liechtenstein and Switzerland and has a population of a little over 375,000. The region has seen its building culture develop along a unique path with a movement beginning in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The ‘Vorarlberger Bauschule’ (Vorarlberg School of Building), a product of this movement, is a name that resonates far beyond local and national borders and is now represented by a relatively high density of quality architecture.

Curated by Dr. Wolfgang Fiel, who is also an Artistic Director of Institute of Cultural Policy in Hamburg, this exhibition seeks to present “architecture from Vorarlberg” to an international audience.

“One of the main factors in the success and sustained quality of the building culture in Vorarlberg is the role of craft techniques and the forms of industrial production that have been derived from them. The exhibition display, which is a series of folders hanging in space, has been designed according to a modular concept catering to the fact that the exhibition requires quick and easy assembly and disassembly,” said Dr. Wolfgang Fiel.

Visitors can expect to enjoy a multitude of photographic illustrations with works of various architects, showcasing architectural descriptions, plans, photographs as well as the work’s genesis.

Also present at the launch were Ambassadors and members of the Diplomatic Corps from the European Union to Malaysia as well as architecture and art fraternities.

The exhibition is open for public viewing at GALERI PETRONAS, Level 3, Suria KLCC from 14 July until 19 August 2016.

A talk by Dr. Wolfgang Fiel will also be held at the same venue between 10 – 12pm on 16 July 2016. Admission is free.
