Movie Rave - Godzilla IMAX


Dear god, what on earth was I doing instead of writing up a review for this absolutely beast of a movie? Someone punch me in the face. 

Godzilla was everything I wanted and more. As someone who has never seen a Godzilla film or know anything about Godzilla except it's a dragon/lizard giant, I loved it so much. Completely ecstatic and in awe. Such a visual adventure and so exhilarating and e p i c. I don't know how else to explain it. He restores balance.

Such a jaw dropping experience.  I highly recommend this movie.

Whistler Eats: Zogs Dogs

4/5 Would go back!

We arrived in Whistler around 2 in the afternoon. After checking in, we decided to hit the village in search of a light lunch. I spotted Zogs Dogs from a mile away and thought "yuuuup" 

The guys working there were really nice and chill.
 I tried hard to make this photo look as "inviting" but there's really no way to make a hotdog look attractive.

Mom and I shared a Zogs Dog with fries and a Nestea(really wish they had some hipster/heathy drinks but honestly, it's a hot dog stand, what do I expect.)(Apro$10). The hotdog immediately reminded me of the Meat Lovers from Japadog(which is very good, btw). It was messy and delicious. The sauce on top was well done. Surprisingly, their fries were really fantastic as well! Crispy and flavorful.

And I would recommend it for people visiting whistler. Mmm!

Movie Review - Transformers 4 - Age of Extinction


That's the thing about magnets, they demand to be felt. 

I have been a big fan of the Transformers franchise ever since the first movie. I love a juicy Michael Bay movie in the summer, they are just so entertaining. It was an epic whirlwind of badassery.

Stanley Tucci (Guy from Devil wears Prada and a bunch of other movies) shone through and grabbed my attention everytime he is on screen. He. Is. Awesome. I enjoyed every scene he was in. Great presence. 

Of course there were flaws in this movie (The population for HK was sparse.) and the endorsements from companies were wayyyy too in my face. 

I still loved it

Please watch it in IMAX, if you still can. 


Movie Review: 22 Jump Street

Note: Wowza! It's been a while. I am going to up my game and write a bunch of movie reviews today and queue them! 

Although Channing Tatum once mentioned that he doesn't think he is funny, he is actually very, very funny. Last year (or was it 2 years ago? I can't remember :p) My friend and I both watched and adored 21 Jump Street. So when the sequel came out we gladly went to the cinema and surprise surprise, t was so great again. 
This time, they are going to college.

Channing tatum absolutely nailed it. Great comedic timing and got so many genuine laughters out of the audience. Clever, silly and tight storyline.Jimmy Tatro was pretty cool.

Over all the movie lots of fun. Jonah Hill did not outdo himself but still put up an solid performance. Great movie. Would recommend if you liked the first one or comedies in general.

Tim Horton's Frozen Green Tea Almost Made Me Cry

0/5 Would not buy again.

A week ago I dropped by a Tim Horton's on the campus of SFU to grab a bagel and a drink. Now, I've briefly seen the Frozen Green Tea drink commercial and have been meaning to try it. What happened next was a major disappointment.

Have you ever chugged vodka thinking it was water? That's how I felt taking the first sip of this drink. When I first saw it, I thought, Hm, the colour is a little.. foamy white. Then when I tasted it, it was a vile surprise. An awakening, almost.

It's literally green tea. Not Japanese Green Tea, Not Matcha. Literally. Green tea drenched in sugar. Green tea drenched in sugar actually tastes slightly sour. It's unbelievably bad. It also separates into two layers after a few minutes.

Tim Horton's. You are not technically wrong, but you have made a terrible drink and you should feel bad.
