Salt

Salt

As a CIA officer, Evelyn Salt swore an oath to duty, honor and country. Her loyalty will be tested when a defector accuses her of being a Russian spy. Salt goes on the run, using all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative to elude capture. Salt’s efforts to prove her innocence only serve to cast doubt on her motives, as the hunt to uncover the truth behind her identity continues and the question remains: “Who is Salt?” [IMDB]

Trailer:

I saw the trailer some time back and it looks interesting… so I went and watch it last week. After watching the movie, I feel disappointed. The actions are not that great/exciting and the story is not like the one I expected from the trailer. The story is just plain and nothing special… maybe a bit of twist, but kinda predictable. If you are interested in action movie with shooting, chasing, etc…, then maybe you can give this a try.

Verdict: Rent

Inception

Inception

Dom Cobb is a skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state, when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb’s rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible-inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse: their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming. [IMDB]

Trailer:

Wow… I didn’t expect that this movie can be this good. At first, I didn’t plan to watch this coz I watched the trailer before and I don’t really get the story. But anyway, I still went and watch it. :p Basically the story is about “dream”. People like Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) can enter other people’s dream. Getting information from the “victim’s” dream is called “extraction”. To plant/injection your idea into the “victim’s” dream is called “inception”. So, in this movie Cobb is tasked to incept a dream with his team members.

The story and effects are very nice in this movie. The concept of the movie is similar to The Matrix. I recommend you to watch “Memento” if you like this movie. It is another movie by Christopher Nolan (the director of this movie).

Verdict: Watch!

McD’s McValue Lunch vs KFC’s Jom Jimat

If you read my previous post here, I said that I’ll do a comparison between McDonald’s McValue Lunch and KFC’s Jom Jimat. And now here it is! Yeah… I have nothing better to do, lol.

McDonald's McValue LunchKFC's Jom JimatBoth priced around the same price. The McValue Lunch is RM5.95 while the Jom Jimat burger set is RM4.90. Actually I want to try the Jom Jimat chicken rice set which is about the same price as McD’s, but for comparison sake, I chose the burger set.

First, I would like to compare the fries:

KFC 'regular' friesMcDonald's 'regular' friesI cant believe that the KFC’s french fries is damn small! And that is regular and not small! The size is probably around the same as small McD’s fries. And McD’s is much fresher/crispier than KFC’s. McD win hands down on this.

Next, the burger. McChicken vs Colonel burger. Again, the size! The Colonel burger is freakin’ small! It even smaller than the Ramly burger that you can get at the road side.

McChickenThe Colonel burgerEven though the Jom Jimat is RM1 cheaper than the McValue Lunch, but the McValue give you more! Overall, everything is smaller in the Jom Jimat. I suspect that the drink is a bit smaller too. I haven’t try the Jom Jimat chicken rice set, but I feel that it is kinda expensive since it doesn’t have fries with it. So, for this comparison, I’ll give McDonald’s a win :good:¬†because it is overall better than KFC’s Jom Jimat.

Next: Station One vs Island Red Cafe? (But quite expensive though. ^_^;)

Pizza Hut vs Secret Recipe

Yesterday night after work, I suddenly have the urge to eat pizza! So, I went to the Pizza Hut near my home and ordered a Sensasi Set. I’m sure that you are wondering why I put Secret Recipe in the title… this is becoz I had a Chicken Lasagna at Secret Recipe last Monday… kekeke. Secret Recipe is currently having a weekly offer for Chicken Lasagna @ RM9.90. (Missed the previous offer of spagetti meatballs)¬† The reason why I want to do a comparison is both of them offer similar kinda food (Western/European) and the price range is almost the same.

Chicken Lasagne

First, I’ll start off with the Secret Recipe’s Chicken lasagna. The lasagna come with a whole wheat bun and it is priced at RM9.90 not including taxes. Drink is not included in the offer. The portion is actually quite small, and the lasagna is kinda different from what I expected. The bun is damn hard too. But it does come with a ‘complementary’ chips. If I’m not mistaken, the chips cost RM4 for 8 pieces. The lasagna itself is not bad lah. Not sure why they are giving it out for free though.

Next, Pizza Hut! There are 3 Sensasi Delight sets for you to choose from. You can either choose the pizza, pasta or rice set. I chose the Italian Chicken Pizza set. The whole set comes with a softdrink, soup, breadstick and the pizza. And the price is quite cheap too, RM7.95.

Pepsi, chicken soup and breadstickLast time, the pizzas for Sensasi Delight sucks. They are very plain and not much ingredient. But the new European Sensations is a big improvement and it taste great too!

Italian Chicken

Well, after tasting both menu from Secret Recipe and Pizzahut, I must say that Pizzahut is a much better choice coz it is cheaper and it comes with more things. The lasagna might taste slightly better, but I still dont think it worth that price. The lasagna is the last weekly offer from Secret Recipe and it will ends at 3rd May. Better go soon if you wanna try it.

Not sure if I should do a another comparison for KFC’s Jom Jimat and McD’s McValue Lunch. :p
