Released Year: 2010
Directed by James Mangold

Casted by:
Tom Cruise as Roy Miller
Cameron Diaz as June Havens
Viola Davis as Director George
Knight and Day follows the adventures of Roy Miller whose real surname is Knight - and June Havens. After literally bumping into Miller twice at the airport on the way home from Wichita to pick up car parts, Havens is told she has been bumped to a later flight. Meanwhile, Agent Fitzgerald, believing Havens is working with Miller, puts her back on the plane. Completely taken with Miller, Havens goes to the restroom; and the remaining passengers all attack Miller. Miller kills them all and props the bodies up in their seats. Havens emerges from the restroom, where she has been freshening up in the hopes of a sexual encounter with Miller. Having heard nothing, she is totally unaware of the attack on him. After a forward moment where Havens kisses Miller, he calmly informs her that everyone on the plane is dead, including the pilots. Believing it a joke, Havens plays along until Miler enters the cockpit and the bodies of the passengers begin to shift around the plane. Crashing into a corn field, Miller delivers Havens home after drugging her and explaining that other agents will visit and that, if they constantly repeat that she is being taken somewhere "safe and secure", they are planning to kill or imprison her.

Waking up at home, Havens struggles through a day fitting a bridesmaids dress for her sister April's wedding, and is shocked to learn her sister would like to sell their father's car, which Havens had planned on finishing as a wedding present. Havens is then picked up by a group of intelligence agents. Miller arrives and, through a long gunfight on the highway, kills several agents and reclaims Havens. Havens flees at the first opportunity and contacts Rodney, a firefighter and former boyfriend. Believing Havens is merely stressed and is playing out a fantasy, Rodney tries to comfort her until Miller arrives and kidnaps Havens, handcuffing her and shooting Rodney in a specific non-vital area ,telling him this will all make him a hero and virtually guarantee his promotion to lieutenant.

Miller explains that Havens is safer with him; and Havens agrees to follow him as they go to pick up Simon Feck, a genius inventor who created a perpetual energy battery called the Zephyr. Miller arrives at his safe house where he left Feck, only to find him gone, and the two are ambushed by men belonging to Antonio, a Spanish arms dealer. After Miller again drugs Havens, she drifts in and out of consciousness between their capture and escape from Antonio's men, and Miller brings her to an island that is off the grid, which Miller uses as a safehouse. Accepting a call from her sister after leaving in frustration, Havens accidentally leads the CIA straight to the hideaway. They try to kill Miller and Havens with a remote drone.

Again knocking out Havens, Miller transports them to a train heading through the Alps, which Feck left as a message in code for Miller. Havens, missing a message from Miller, leaves to get dinner and encounters Danny, a German assassin. Using tricks learned from Miller, Danny is knocked from a window and killed by a train. Miller, after leaving Havens and Feck in a hotel in Spain, heads to a meeting with a mysterious beautiful woman with whom he is apparently willing to make a deal, and is followed by Havens, who is heartbroken to learn that Miller is apparently planning on selling the Zephyr to Antonio. After being picked up by the CIA and meeting the director of counter-intel, she uses a pen transmitter to notify them when Miller returns with the Zephyr, which is showing signs of overheating. After leading the CIA agents on a chase, Miller is apparently shot and falls into a canal.

Returning home, Havens heads to an address she remembered from Miller's iPhone, where she finds his parents and learns that his real name is Matthew Knight. They believe their son, a former Army sergeant and Eagle Scout, is dead; but they are fabulously wealthy from winning lotteries and sweepstakes they don't remember entering. Leaving a message that she has the Zephyr, she is captured by Antonio's men and taken back to Spain. She is drugged with truth serum before being rescued by Miller, who was tracking Fitzgerald, who was delivering Feck to Antonio. Chasing Fitzgerald, Miller saves Feck from a bullet wound after handing over the Zephyr in a small satchel. Feck comments that the battery is unstable. The battery explodes, killing Fitzgerald; and Miller collapses from a gunshot wound. After waking in the hospital, Miller receives an apology from the director, who tells him that Havens has returned home and claims that Miller can't be distracted.

Miller is later given medication by a nurse, who turns out to be Havens. After Havens breaks Miller out of the hospital, he awakes as she drives away in the rebuilt GTO that belonged to Havens's father. After Miller asking what day it is, Havens kisses him and says it's someday. This is a reference from the start of the movie that they both have things they want to do someday, and Havens begins to drive towards Cape Horn.

L² Comment:
Basically i yawn through the whole film. Diaz looks old, Cruise looks old, Davis is not as good as she is in DOUBT. The whole film is so damn boring. The only interested part is when they are on bike being chase along by bulls in Spain.

This is a movie which u will never remember its story after one week, or maybe a few days later. Nothing much to mention about. I even got the movie preview frm wiki....

Casted by:
Jake Gyllenhaal as Prince Dastan
Gemma Arterton as Princess Tamina
Ben Kingsley as Nizam
Alfred Molina as Sheik Amar
Richard Coyle as Prince Tus
Toby Kebbell as Prince Garsiv
Dastan, an orphan in the Persian Empire, commits an act of courage in a public market place and is adopted by the king because of it. Fifteen years later Dastan, his royal-blooded foster brothers, Tus and Garsiv, and his uncle, Nizam are planning an attack on the sacred city of Alamut, which is believed to be selling weapons to Persia's enemies. Despite his doubts as to whether they should attack a sacred city, and orders to avoid the front-line of the fighting, Dastan leads the way in breaching the walls of Alamut. In the confusion, the princess of Alamut, Tamina, instructs one of her guards to take a dagger from a shrine to safety. During the fight, however, Dastan defeats this guard, and steals the dagger. Alamut falls to the Persians and Tamina is captured. In order to pacify the captured city, Tus suggests that he and Tamina marry, which she agrees to only upon seeing that the dagger has fallen into Dastan's possession.

When the king of Persia arrives at Alamut, he reproaches Tus (the eldest son) for having made the decision to attack the city. He suggests that Dastan, rather than Tus should marry Tamina. Prince Dastan unknowingly presents a poisoned robe, given to him by Tus, to his father, King Sharaman who dies upon donning it. Dastan is blamed for the king's murder and flees Alamut with Princess Tamina. In their first camp, Tamina attempts to kill the prince and recover the dagger, during which Dastan finds out what the dagger is capable of and believes that Tus framed Dastan for their father's murder in an attempt to seize the throne and the Dagger. During their journey, the duo meet an ostrich racing-organizer and tax-averse shady entrepreneur Sheik Amar, with his knife-throwing African friend Seso. Dastan offers Tamina up as a slave in return for supplies, however Amar betrays him because he recognizes him as the murderer of the king, for whom there is an "obscene" price being offered. Dastan and Tamina escape and return to Persia for King Sharaman's funeral; here, Dastan attempts to convince his uncle Nizam that he did not kill his father. Dastan discovers that Tamina has taken the Dagger; however, he then notices Nizam's hands are burned. Garsiv and the city guards appear and attack Dastan and he is forced to escape.

Dastan catches up with Tamina and explains that the villainous brother of the King, Nizam, was behind the murder. He wanted the Dagger of Time to use it with the massive Sandglass to go back in time and undo saving Sharaman from a lion so he can become king: however, opening the hourglass would trigger a sandstorm that would end the world. He fabricated the false allegations that Alamut had been dealing weapons to Persia's enemies so that he would have the opportunity to search the city for the Sandglass. The pair put aside their differences and agree to work together to protect the Dagger. Meanwhile, back in Persia, Nizam tries to convince Tus and Garsiv that Dastan is trying to overthrow them and must be killed. When this fails, Nizam hires the Hassansins, a group of highly skilled warriors who once served as hired killers for Persian royalty, to slay Dastan.

Dastan and Tamina are again captured by Sheik Amar and Seso, seeking to rebuild his ruined business by turning them in for a bounty. But that night, when everyone is asleep, the Hassansin leader attacks the group by controlling a number of vipers. Many of the group die, but Dastan uses the Dagger to rewind time and foreseeing the attack, manages to kill all the snakes and saves everyone. The Hassansin leader then leaves in a sand dervish. The next day, the pair accompanied by Sheik and Seso travel to the secret sanctuary in the mountains near India, where it is possible to seal away the Dagger. However, they run into Garsiv's men. Dastan manages to persuade his brother that he is innocent, only for Garsiv to be fatally wounded by a Hassansin. The Hassansins attack, killing many of the group, while their leader manages to snatch the Dagger of Time from Tamina. However, Dastan is saved from the last Hassansin by Garsiv, who then dies of his wounds.

The group returns to Alamut to reveal the truth about Nizam and the Dagger to Tus. Seso duels to the death with a Hassansin and is mortally wounded, though he manages to kill the Hassansin and get the Dagger to the others before dying. Dastan confronts Tus and explains the Dagger's mechanics to him and then kills himself; Tus brings Dastan back to life by rewinding time and realises his brother has been innocent all along. Soon after, however, Nizam arrives and kills Tus, leaving his Hassansin guard to kill Dastan. The Dagger is once again in Nizam's hands, but Dastan manages to defeat the Hassansin with Tamina's help. Nizam goes to the Sandglass caves beneath Alamut, as Dastan and Tamina take a more secret route. After a short battle with the Hassansins' leader, fatally wounding him and sending him plummeting to his death in a chasm, Dastan and Tamina kiss. They then reach Nizam before he can pierce the Sandglass with the Dagger, but he knocks Tamina and Dastan over the edge of the chasm. Dastan holds on to Tamina but she reveals that it is actually Dastan's destiny to stop Nizam, not her's, and releases her grip on his hand; Tamina professes her love for Dastan and then lets go, falling to her death. Driven to fight on, Dastan manages to pull himself up. Nizam stabs the Sandglass with the Dagger, but Dastan grabs a hold and opens the Dagger, rather than activating it, causing the Sands of Time to flow through freely, reversing time to when Dastan first obtained the Dagger, fully aware of all that occurred since. Dastan stops the siege of Alamut, revealing Nizam's treachery. Nizam attempts to kill Dastan, but is killed by Tus. After apologizing for the ransacking of her city, Tus suggests that perhaps Tamina should become Dastan's wife as a sign of good will. The Prince returns the Dagger of Time to her. The two take a walk together and Dastan expresses his feelings for her.

Due to time consuming, i got the story review from wikipedia. What do we expect a film based on a video game? Storyline? Nope, coz its predictable. What i look at is the effect and graphic. Obviously its good and nice. Jake Gyllenhaal still being hot, never wonders Gemma would be this hot :)

Wonder whether there will be a sequel for this prince of persia...

Basically a good horror film. Each story is about half an hour, so the storyline is not that important but the scary effect take the most important part in PHOBIA 2. Especially love the 4th story - Salvage. It really does bring out the scariness and spookiness of it.

OMG~ Jim Carrey & Ewan McGregor kiss!!! That's hot. Its not something new for McGregor coz i think he acted in a few gay character before, but this is definitely something new for Carrey. But if compare to acting, McGregor is much more better than Carrey as Carrey's acting style is very over all these while.

Bravo to Carrey for purposely slim down so much just for the film. Its a real legend which i found quite weird. If that man is so clever in con, he must be really really enjoying a superb life all these while.

Continuous 2 films from Stephen Chow, this one is not as fantastic as "When Fortune Smiles". Though it is on top 3 of the Hong Kong Box Office, but the comedy is too lame. Not everything u can really laugh on. Basically the 2 actresses Carina and Carman is not good for comedy if compare to Sandra & Miu Siu Wai.

The storyline is kinda empty as well. Its ok, but definitely not gonna watch it again.

A very good comedy to laugh on Saturday night if you're not going anywhere, but just sit along with the one you love. Making it on top 10 in Hong Kong box office during 1990, one of Stephen Chow's hit movie that i love.

This time Stephen teamed up with his 2 favorite partners: Sandra from the cinema screen and Miu Siu Wai from his various TVB partner. Though Miu Siu Wai doesn't have much scene here, but enough to make u laugh out loud :)

Its kinda spooky at first, not a bad movie. The director used the illusion style of the demon spirit in this movie, kinda has the chinese mythology feel. The whole movie's storyline is nice but its a bit confusing throughout the whole movie of which character has died or still alive.

Though i'm a Malaysian and this is an Indonesian film, but the indonesian slang is too strong, i didnt managed to get their words, so i need to read the malay subtitle along the whole movie... lolz~ not a bad one

While checking how the human centipede health, Dr Heiter found out Jennie is not doing well, and might find a replacement for her.

2 police officers arrive at this time, they questioned Dr Heiter regarding the rented car nearby. Dr Heiter tried to drug the 2 officers just like how he did it to Lindsay and Jennie but they gone away to get warrants back. Dr Heiter got freaked out and tried to remove the human centipede away and discover they are not in room. Katsuro appeared beside doorways and stabbed Dr Heiter's foot and leg. The 3 poor things crawled and tried to ran out but Dr Heiter get them back. Feeling insulted, Katsuro cut off his throat and died.

The 2 police officers are back and try to catch Dr Heiter after discovering the human centipede. But the drug get to the brain in time, one of the police officer was shot by Dr Heiter. When the another police officer reached, he was shot to death while firing a gun shot through Dr Heiter's head and cause him to die on the spot.

Urrggghhh... i really don't know how to talk about this film, it is such a sadistic thingy. It makes me feel so horrified, and just imagine if you're in one of the centipede part, eww... i rather die !!!

But yes, it definitely shows what a horror film should be. Good work to the Six family for producing such a nice film for a horror movie fans like me... definitely looking forward on the sequel :)
