(A new posting to help you plan your cinema-going)

1. CARS (Animated fun-tasy with endearing car-acters voiced by Owen Wilson, Bonnie Hunt and Paul Newman) Rated * * * (3 out of 4 stars): Lightning McQueen, a novice racing car, learns about friends and family when he gets stuck in a small town on the legendary Route 66.

2. OVER THE HEDGE (Animated comedy with voices of Bruce Willis and Gary Shandling) Rated * * * (3 stars): A bunch of woodland animals wake up from hibernation to find a hedge in their way – and lots of food on the other side. Wacky fun for the kids during the school holidays.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting3. THE FAST & THE FURIOUS: TOKYO DRIFT (car-race sequel with Lucas Black and Bow Wow) Rated: * * 1/2 (2.5 stars): If you like fast cars, hot chicks and road crashes, then this is the flick for you. Don't expect anything else, though.

4. THE OMEN (remake of the 1976 horror classic, with Liev Schriber and Julia Stiles) Rated * * 1/2 (2.5 stars): Another faithful remake of the 70s original with no ‘value’ added except more thunder and lightning.

5. RV (family road trip comedy with Robin Williams and Jojo Levescue) Rated: * * (2 stars): For the youngsters, the sole reason to catch this movie is the presence of singer Jojo who plays a teenager forced to go on a road trip with her nerd of a dad.

Hi Jesscet, U don't miss much because they won't open the big movies during this World Cup season.
No, I have not been told abt the Nixon movie. But I saw Take The Lead last night (Tues). How is the Malay Mail now? Take care.

Hi chang moh, well.. circulation not too bad but i think i prefer the old MM. i'm doing more feature for WM than entertainment stories per se. so what do u think of the MM and WM? (but bear in mind their target market is not ppl in ur age group..)

p.s. if u wonder why i'm writing at this hour is becos its half time. :p

Hi Jesscet,
Thanks for the speedy reply. It must be a nice change for u to write for WM. When the new MM started, I used to get calls and complaints that the Mail did not cater to the old diehard readers. They thot I was to blame. And they have stopped buying the MM and WM. Most complained abt the comics which were discontinued.
It is sad that we abandoned these faithful readers. I hope the new MM will get the support of the young ppl. Thanks and all the best to u.
