Many people don’t know that I have a deviantart account. Well, I do. Here it is. I finally updated it today after a year…

What I do at work – through the eyes of others…

That’s not what I do everyday. Well not entirely. The other time is spent playing chess!

I’ll shout the first person a beer who can identify who that chick is, and who that speaker is in that little green window.

At the Movies: Footy Legends

Friday, August 4th, 2006

(It was weird at first seeing Asians on a non-Asian movie poster. I still can’t get over the fact that that’s a Vietnamese name in the first actor’s name slot. VIET PRIDE! HAHhaahehe)

I just saw it half an hour ago on opening night and I must say, my adoration for Aussie films have now swung into full gear. They’ve always had that “reality” feel to them unlike Hollywood productions, and this film really hit it home (seeing my primary school in two shots really did it for me). I’m not a fan of rugby, but the movie made it enjoyable enough to keep my attention. Although it’s Khoa Do’s feature film directoral debut, it felt like he could’ve done more with it. I would’ve liked it if he lingered more on the importance of the game to the characters, esp. Anh Do’s character. The reason to play footy to keep his little sister out of foster care felt like it didn’t really mean much to me.

It was also great to see most of the actors on the underdog footy team (the Yagoona Schooners!) coming from comedic backgrounds like Anh Do, Angus Sampson (loved him on Thank God You’re Here) and that dude from Fat Pizza. And quite suprisingly, they did a pretty good job pulling off the more serious roles.

Overall, I’d give it 4 stars (out of five). Though a really really really good Aussie feel-good movie, it kinda felt abit light overall. And one thing, how the Yagoona Schooners caught up with the other team in the final game still doesn’t make sense to me. And the fact that the young girl (Anne) speaks English to her Grandfather when he speaks to her in Vietnamese was abit weird, esp. when Anh Do was speaking Vietnamese to him as well. But I gotta say, the Grandfather is one great character! Oh, and what makes the film really special is that it’s for the everyday Australian (esp. those in Western Sydney – minus the doof doof).

Haha, I still can’t get over the fact that Guido is in at least one shot in every production that involves Cabramatta or Khoa Do.
