Avatar (2009)

Before I go for the movie, I do not have any idea on what the movie is all about.. I do not know about the synopsis and have not watched the trailer, so all I can perceive bout the movie is by the posters and title.. When I saw the poster, I was like... hmmm?... blue alien?.. Avatar?.. Not another untrue sci-fi film I was thinking.. But... After watching the film.....

Woohooo.. The movie was awesome. The scripts, the plot, the effects and the graphic were incredible. This is the best movie I have ever watched in my entire life. haha.. I like how the story line goes with lots of suspense, and some scenes in the movie were unexpected unlike certain boring movies with some scenes which we could have already predicted what would happened before the actual scene actually happens..

The second thing i like about the movie is the graphic. With the advancement in the graphical technology, they are able to create such beautiful scene, especially the jungle with all the glow in the dark plants which fluoresce so beautifully, making me feel like I want to be there as well.. Looking forward to watch this movie again in 3D. I believe it will be a great experience..

Here's the synopsis of the movie adapted from:

When his brother is killed in battle, paraplegic Marine Jake Sully decides to take his place in a mission on the distant world of Pandora. There he learns that greedy corporate figurehead Parker Selfridge's has an intention of driving off the native humanoid "Na'vi" in order to mine for the precious material scattered throughout their rich woodland. In exchange for the spinal surgery that will fix his legs, Jake gathers intel for the cooperating military unit spearheaded by gung-ho Colonel Quaritch, while simultaneously attempting to infiltrate the Na'vi people with the use of an "avatar" identity. While Jake begins to bond with the native tribe and quickly falls in love with the beautiful alien Neytiri, the restless Colonel moves forward with his ruthless extermination tactics, forcing the soldier to take a stand - and fight back in an epic battle for the fate of Pandora.

So the blue alien I was referring to is called the "Na'vi".. But you do not need to know the plot or watch the trailer to get an idea bout what the movie is all about before watching.. Just go watch and that is what that makes the movie more interesting..

-Looking forward to watch this movie again in IMAX theater- (Update: It's such an embarrassment that IMAX in Malaysia has been closed.. What happened??!!?.. hmm)

Unlucky or coincidence?

Was it me that was unlucky or was it just a coincident that problem arisen every time I run my analysis for my final year project?..

I took a cab today for RM6 to go all the way to uni at 6.45am to run my analysis for my chemical compound. However, when my senior opened the lab, we realized that the room with the instrument was hot and felt something was wrong but I chose to believe nothing was wrong as I didn't want to go back to uni so early again just to run my analysis. Unfortunately, my senior told me that the tube in the instrument has burst after he has inspected the instrument..

Arghhh....... Again????.... The first time I did my analysis, the data cannot be used as there were many unwanted peaks in the graph and when I run my second sample on the second day, there was no electric current... hmmm.. It was just a waste of time that I went to uni at 7am for the two days and have had to postpone my analysis to the third day.. hmmm....

Anyhow, thank god my senior fixed the machine and I was able to run one out of my two samples.. And really thank my senior very very much as he offered to run the analysis for my second sample when the instrument is not occupied so that I don't have to go back to uni just to run that one sample..
And really sorry that he has to be the victim of my unluckiness and have to go back to the lab for several times due to all the problems.. Pray Pray Pray... Let's hope that I will get a good data this time without any error..
