Tonight the Audience Sat Still

While internationally, this movie is scheduled to be released on the 12 Dec but we, the audience in Bangkok get to see it 2 days a head, probably thanks to the 10 Dec being a holiday.

Anyway, how was it? least I knew I sat still.

Compared to other major disaster movies (Armageddon, Deep Impact, The Day After Tomorrow) or Alien/Monster movies (Independence Day, Cloverfield), TDTESS tend to be a bit lame or was it because of Jennifer Connelly? Never much seen her movies..and she don't really make much strong impression.

Considering that there's really no big huge movie, it's okay to give this a try. Just don't complain too much. The last scene is actually quite horrid where the Earth really stood still but the Director ignored the disaster it had and hence shown nothing about Aeroplanes falling from the sky or Submarines sinked deeper....

The most funny thing was that towards 40+ minutes into the movie (when Jennifer's Dr Benson inject a water saline into Keanu Reeve), the theatre suddenly paused. Screen went blank. Lights was on. I was wondering if a coup had happen outside or something major.

Sadly, the building was experiencing power failure........hence that moment, the audience sat still for about 10 minutes.
