Shaolin 2011

It has been ages since I last stepped in a cineplex... wonder when that was...

So imagine my shock when I went to buy tickets to watch Shaolin 2011 last Sunday.... one ticket cost a Whooping RM13.00!! Waahh... I thought it was RM9 the most...

When the girl at the counter told me that it was a total of RM39, I really thought of walking away.... for that amount of money, I can buy the Shaolin VCD to watch at home and have a real good meal for three persons...correct?

But I ended up buying anyway..

So much uproar about this movie...
Heard only positive comments so far..
OK, my own views: storyline is very simple
but the scenes/actors, they were really good, very real....
in fact, very "splendidly" produced and directed..
the 13 ringgit ticket was worth it... hahaha...

Anyone of you seen this movie yet?

  2. I haven't watch this show yet, but from the way you mention how it was worth your RM13, I'm getting interested!

  3. I have never been to a cinema or cineplex before. I have my own philosophy of movies: "By spending RM5, I can buy a DVD and enjoy the movie with the whole family. SO, why should I waste my $$$ in cineplex? cannot rewind, forward, pause, play again.....

  15. Of course, I've never heard of this movie. I do read the movie reviews, but don't go to the theatre even once a year! It is cheaper and more comfortable for me to wait a bit and buy the DVD, watch it at home. I used to go quite a bit when much younger.

  17. I am not into Jackie Chan's movies anymore,,, Andy ok...i read about the review,i thought the story line is so so only,so i rather settle for a book for RM39..hahahahah.

    but then again, it was the time spent with the family in the cinema,then it is all worthwhile lol ,right?
