In Time (2011) hits the Cinemas in Singapore Recently...

I'm really glad I was "in time" to catch the movie... & also with the company of another Sci-fi thriller fan ; )

Imagine everyone stop growing old at 25... & die 365 days (1 yr) thereafter unless they get to "buy" more time... if you are rich enough your grandma will look as young as your daughter... the rich will never die...
Everyone trades in mins, hours & even in years...time is's also your lifespan... 
When their "digital clock" on the forearm strikes 0:00 you die... I thought the storyline is quite kool... don't miss it if you are a sci-fi fan...
In Time, previously titled Now and I'm.mortal,[3] is a 2011 dystopian science fiction-thriller film starring Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, Cillian Murphy, Olivia Wilde, Alex Pettyfer, Johnny Galecki, and Vincent Kartheiser.

"1984" parody from Motorola XOOM Tablet

"1984" parody from Motorola promoting their XOOM tablet. Motorola advocating to be the "new Apple" & Apple to be the new Yesteryear's "Big Brother" as seen in the famous Super Bowl Ad - "1984"? 
"Motorola proves that subtext can sometimes be a little too obvious. But nice swipe at Apple's 1984 commercial. Almost 30 years too late, but still." - PCWorld
The original "1984" ad from Apple: 
So will you be getting the Xoom?

Hindi Box office Hit - Robot (2010)

 I finally took time to watch the Hindi Box office Hit - Robot (2010) aka "Enthiran". It's "Bicentennial Man" meets "Terminator" with a touch of "I,Robot" & "Matrix".

Enthiran (Tamilஎந்திரன், Entiraṉ ?; English: Robot) is a 2010 Tamil science fiction film co-written and directed by S. Shankar. The film features Rajinikanth in dual roles, as a scientist and an android robot, alongside Aishwarya Rai whilst Danny Denzongpa, Santhanam, Karunas, Kalabhavan Mani, Devadarshini, and Cochin Haneefa play supporting roles.[1] The film's story revolves around the scientist's struggle to control his creation, the android robot whose software was upgraded to give it the ability to comprehend and generate human emotions. The plan backfires as the robot falls in love with the scientist's fiancée and is further manipulated to bring destruction to the world when it lands in the hands of a rival scientist.

After nearly a decade of pre-production work, the film was shot over two years beginning in 2008. The film marked the Indian cinema-debut of Stan Winston Studios, who were responsible for the film's animatronics and visual effects, as well as other artists outside of India. The film's background score and soundtrack, which was composed by A. R. Rahman, became the best-selling world album on the iTunes Store in three countries within a few days of its digital release. The film released worldwide on 1 October 2010, along with its dubbed versions: Robot in Hindi and Robo in Telugu.[2] Produced by Kalanithi Maran, it became India's most expensive film till date.[3][4] Upon release, it also made the largest worldwide opening for an Indian film.[5][6]

Heat @ 2nd Live Show (X-Factor 2011)

Being a reality-show junkie... naturally I'm hooked onto the X-Factor 2011 (USA). Everyone is so so good...I guess it's easier to say who has gotten better...

I've to agree that Astro is the most improved contestant in the show this week... check out his performance:

My 2nd choice for the most improved contestant is Drew Ryniewicz
