Ironic Images #2

Bookmark and Share


Here's another dose of irony. from " Ironic Images". ;D

If you haven't view my earlier post of Ironic Images click here. 


Today's theme is about irony on buses.. 


In today's business minded world, everyone is competing among each other...they uses catch phrases & taglines to grab the customers attention....


For example, like these...


#1 


Super Nice??
Hmm..what does it means?? :P Well, look at that..there's a horse logo at the bottom of the bus that resembles a  "Da Ma Cai " ( a Big Sweep Company ) logo. (bottom) 



So, you can actually buy lottery in the bus?? lol..no wonder it's " Super Nice ".


#2


"Naik Selalu" or in English translation it's " Always Ride "

Yup, this bus is asking us to always ride with them..lol..

Hmm... there's 2 "recycle" logos at the front & end of the bus? This Bus is Recyclable?? That's why they ask us to always ride them.

Recycle Paper! Recycle Plastic! Recycle Buses!! ahahah.. XD 


#3 


VVIP Seat?? :O

So, are they saying that the Prime Minister rides in this bus?? 

Ahahah...hope you got your daily dose of irony today! ;D

Britt's party life is about to change when he and his driver and kung fu expert, Kato (Jay Chou), stop a robbery.

Seth Rogen as " Britt Reid/The Green Hornet "  & Jay Chou as " Kato. " 


Christopher Waltz as " Chudnofsky " ;the antagonist in the film. 

Quite entertaining; funny & action-packed. 

Jay Chou's English is not that bad in the film though..

Review Of : Gulliver's Travels

Bookmark and Share

I had just watch " GULLIVER'S TRAVELS " . 

The film is quite entertaining.. :) 

The storyline goes by Lemuel Gulliver (Jack Black);  a mail-man that became an accidental travel writer. who took up an assignment to the Bermuda Triangle.Which he then found himself washed ashore as a giant man in the island of Liliput, where the population of people are
tiny, very tiny. 



The film, to my opinion; is quite entertaining, not really hilarious though but quite entertaining.. =)

But, if you want a giggle, do watch it.

I didn't watch the movie in 3D though.. 

P.S.- DO come early as there will be a short film; "Scrat's Continental Crack-Up!"


My Rating?

Plot : 3.5/5
Storyline : 3.75/5
Acting*:4/5 
Comedy* : 3.75/5
OVERALL : 7.5/10.
