Kungfu Panda - luv it!!!

Yesterday I went out with diyana, we actually planned to have ice-skating, but later on we decided to watch a movie (I'm hoping so long to watch Kungfu Panda and she claimed that she din go for a movie for quite a long time). So, yeah! we watched our Kungfu Panda. Let's have a look at the trailer first~ lolz

haha, if you ask me whether i would like to watch again, i'll answer "YES! WHY NOT?" it is really a nice film. Since the movie started, both of us started to discuss about the models, texturing, design blablabla... it is quite fun to look into those elements while watching a movie. Of course, we din really pay too much attention to those elements after first few minutes of discussion, we just wanna sit back relax like others. When the movie reached its funny parts, the whole cinema filled up with laughter, some small kids even shouted! hahaha, so cute~

About the story, i'm sure you can find it anywhere~the story is quite simple as what we had learn, it roughly applied with the 12 stages in the heroes journey. The design are really nice, i like those bowls and lanterns, they looks real. From models to rendering and animation, all are awesome! There is 2 things that bothered me, the pau and the tortise (Oogway). First, talk about the pau, it looks nice and cute, but it looks quite shinny and hard to me~ Secondly, I like the character Oogway (i like him the most :-P), but it's shell looks too nice and the edges are too accurate (~.~" i feel la~) Other than these 2 things, i like the movie very much! So, just ignore these. hahaha. May be this movie is meant to be cute and lovely, that's why every elements are cutely designed and modelled. hehehe...

This morning, when i was reading the newspaper, i read an article about the movie mistakes that caused in some movies, Kungfu Panda is in the list of it. I think I'm going to re-watch the movie if it is possible. The mistakes that MovieMistakes points out are quite interesting~ if you wanna have a look, please check it out here: ~ hahaha... everyone can make mistakes, it is rather we realize what mistakes we had made and take it as a lesson than blaming ourselves of causing them. ;-P

Anyway, think about it~ it is fun for us to enjoy the movie as a normal audience in the cinema. If wanna look deeper into that movie and examine their models and other stuff, we can just go and buy the DVD and replay again and again in our~ lolz. I personally like this movie and enjoy it a lot!

*p/s: ou ou ou! shifu is damn cute!!! ~ hehehe

The Bongocero

this is an assignment based on a selected song by the lecturers. the song "Bongo Bong" is by Manu Chao. the lyrics is quite cute, let's enjoy it!

Artist: Manu Chao
Song: Bongo Bong

Mama was queen of the mambo
Papa was king of the Congo
Deep down in the jungle
I started bangin' my first bongo
Every monkey'd like to be
In my place instead of me
Cause I'm the king of bongo, baby
I'm the king of bongo bong
I went to the big town
Where there is a lot of sound
From the jungle to the city
Looking for a bigger crown
So I play my boogie
For the people of big city
But they don't go crazy
When I'm bangin' in my boogie
I'm the "king of the bongo, king of the bongo bong"
Hear me when I come
King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong
They say that I'm a clown
Making too much dirty sound
They say there is no place for little monkey in this town
Nobody'd like to be in my place instead of me
Cause nobody go crazy when I'm bangin' on my boogie
I'm the king of the bongo, king of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come
"King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong"
Bangin' on my bongo all that swing belongs to me
I'm so happy there's nobody in my place instead of me
I'm a king without a crown hanging loose in a big town
But I'm the king of bongo baby I'm the king of bongo bong
King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come, baby, king of the bongo, king of the bongo bong...

the story is about the journey of a monkey bongocero to the town to attend a singing competition. he is not welcomed by the town monkey thus he is sent back to his place.
