I wrote a long post but i dont know what to name it.

Iklan pokok Xmas
I went to 1B last night to watch Quarantine with LA, and heck, Wednesday happens to be movie day in KK. I never review any movie before, probably because I dont recall the story by the next day. However now, i'm about to make a debut and this movie worth to be mention in my not so famous blog. The Exorcist, Saw, Child's Play, Long Khong, just to name few; If you cant stand watching these, then Quarantine is definitely not your type. To those who haven't watch this movie and wants to preserve the element of surprise, then do not proceed. *Definitely contain spoiler and more*
This movie is of the same concept as in The Blair Witch Project, Clover field , in which these are called as 'shaky camera work', it gives you the feeling as if you are a part of what's happen.
Angela, the reporter and Scott, the cameraman was assigned to documented the life of fire brigades (FB) in Los Angeles. Starting point of the story is very dull; at this point one crucial character is introduced, Jake yang gagah tapi mati juga.
The dull scenes end when they received a phone call which lead them to an old apartment building. An old lady who is believe to be in 'sick' condition refuse to come out from the room, and neighbors testified they heard loud screaming from that room. Feeling something amiss, they call 911 and subsequently the FB. When these authorities arrived, they quickly go to that room and found out the zombie look old lady is covered with blood, and there's a lifeless body lying in front of her. A cop who's trying to calm down the disoriented and wild old lady ended up being bitten and attacked viciously by her. The rest manage to let go off the policeman from the hold of that old lady (man,she's wild and strong!), and quickly bring him to the parameds. Before they can even do that, the door is shut externally, the communication lines are cut off, and the building is sealed tightly. Unluckily, there's only a vet to look after the bitten cop. All became panic; me, the tenants, the dog (haha), even the FB and cops are clueless about the sudden isolation.
Right after this point, it's all about being in tense mode. You'll get to know: 1. The vet assumed the 'sickness' as animal rabies because it shares the same symptom, but it takes longer time for animal to show the symptom, whereas in this case in human, it happens very quick. (i cant give you the numerical definition of quick, it's very dark, cant even see my watch..LOL) 2. All who has been bitten by the infected one, will end up being like the old lady, a bloodthirsty killer. Once bitten, they need to be kill before the symptoms manifest. This is when killing infected kids and old ladies would make life much better. Very vicious,you know.. urrgghh!! 3. You'll get to witnessed lots of killing. Killing is an understatement. 4. Someone did tried to escape thus he tore apart the seal, and ended up dead after being shot by a sniper. That's when we realized (remember i witnessed that too), everyone in the building is meant to die. 5. This movie has no definite ending. I'm expecting the sequel to explain the indefinite ending of this. I'm so going to watch this movie again! 6. This one particular scene stays in my thought; It was when Scott the cameraman, killed the infected old lady (too many oldies character in the movie) using the hand held camera, and hit her head hard, for like 6-7 times. The cinematography technique used is very effective, i get very dizzy during the scene, imagine banging you head with all you heart like that much. Other than that you can hear the sound of the skull's cracked at the first hit, not to mention the bursting blood. Urgghh..how can somebody forget nasty thing like that? *end of spoiler and i guess i've revealed more..opps* Bah, enough of that. Watch if you must ;) As any other shopping complexes in kk, 1B too already set up their Xmas deco. I've seen lots of Xmas trees been put up in each floors, but still i hope to see a gigantic one. I simply love December. Not only Santa is coming to town, BF as well. I dont think i can claim any present from him because i've been really naughty every this year. muhuhu.

I go through the movie's storyline or synopsis before deciding to watch it. That's how I choose to decide which movies to watch.

In this case - Quarantine

I noe for some it's gonna feel bored... the shaky camera, the storyline, etc.. and the ending ^.^

But to me I can enjoy watching this movie, just like I enojyed watching all-time-scarriest-movie exorcist sequel and recently the controversial Lust and Caution and many other movies alike.

Not to dissapoint anyone but I feel bored watching movies like Hancock and Tropic Thunder. Maybe not my type ^.^ hehe
