Attended a screening of Delivery Man with my brother on Dec 20, courtesy of Nuffnang! 🙂 Starring Vince Vaughn, Chris Pratt, and Cobie Smulders, it’s a comedy that’s a remake of Starbuck (2011). Out in local cinemas on 1 Jan!
“An affable underachiever finds out he’s fathered 533 children through anonymous donations to a fertility clinic 20 years ago. Now he must decide whether or not to come forward when 142 of them file a lawsuit to reveal his identity.”
Normally, comedy is the last second genre (out of all the main ones) I’d watch (the last being animation) in theatres because I tend to find them unfunny and not worth the money. Even on a whole, I rarely watch movies that are purely comedy. So I wasn’t expecting much from Delivery Man.
Turned out it was actually pretty okay and there was genuine humour at some parts! Not crude-and-try-too-hard funny but the good kind so that was a definite plus. To be honest, I did fall asleep at some parts not because it was boring but because I came from a Christmas party and was slightly tipsy (lol), but whatever I did see, I liked.
Storyline was fresh and heartwarming, the characters were real and likeable, and it was an entertaining flick with some pretty good moments. Not Oscar material nor the kind critics would rave about, but it’s a feel-good movie for when you are in the mood for something light-hearted.
My rating: 6/10

Dinner at Aston’s afterwards ^^ Photos look different from my usual because I’ve stopped using my digicam ever since I got my S3 which died earlier that night. So I had to use my brother’s phone but the pictures turned out weird…
I know, I know, I have been blogging. I guess you can say I’ve pretty much given up on it for now because I have a lot of other things to do and a lot of stuff going on all the time. And when I’m not doing anything, all I want to do is read and watch movies. Super love Goodreads and IMDB! 😀
Just look at how many events I have yet to blog about, and they are the ones WITH photos -_- Not forgetting sub-folders… Don’t think I’ll ever finish. Don’t even know who still reads my blog anyway. One of the extensions on my blog needs fixing but I can’t be bothered so I no longer have a view counter nor do my entries get automatically shared on Facebook.
Can you believe it’s the second last day of the year already? This is insane!
