I celebrated my birthday with my wife watching 2 movies - Ghost Rider and The Holiday. Being a GSC member does have its advantages (by the way, membership is FREE). For one, I get to redeem a free movie ticket during my birthday month. Used the coupon to redeem for a free ticket for The Holiday (can't use it for Ghost Rider since it is not on the free list).

I was quite disappointed with Ghost Rider. It was not as exciting as I had hoped. Among the recent comics-to-movie adaptation, I still like Constantine and Hellboy (both are from DC's Vertigo). Superman Returns is also quite good, I guess. Can't say the same about X-Men III. I would rank it together with Ghost Rider. Nothing really memorable.

What was interesting is the Malay title for Ghost Rider - Penunggang Motosikal Hantu. I don't know why, but Malay titles and subtitles can sometimes be really funny. I guess Penunggang Motosikal Hantu is correct since it is literally translated - word for word (OK, maybe it should be just penunggang hantu). But the 'feel' just gets lost during translation. If it was up to me, I think I might just follow the footsteps of Putera UMNO which seems to idolise Mat Rempits and name the movie as:

Don't you think my title captures the 'feel'?

Speaking of Mat Rempit, if you check out the wiki entry, I think they missed out something else. Mat Rempits also pimp their girlfriend for rm5 (USD1 = rm3.6) per bonk (read that somewhere in the newspapers recently).

The Holiday was quite entertaining... I just love feel good romance movies. We should have more movies like The Holiday, Sleepless in Seattle, etc...

Each time I see Jack Black, I think of wrestling... Eeew! But he's good here. Kate is still lovely.

yeah... if the distributors have named it Mat Rempit Ajaib, probably they could have expected more sales (possibly thousands more since that's how many mat rempit we think we have).
