Avatar Theatrical Trailer

Mind-blowingly awesome. I had goosebumps watching the trailer. Reminds me of watching Jurassic Park, Terminator 2 and The Matrix for the first time. Now, the question is - does this mean I have to fly to Sydney to watch Avatar since it's the closest 3D IMAX screen to me? Word on the internets is that it's the only way to watch Avatar in its true form, as James Cameron would want you to see it.

If the link above doesn't work, head over to Yahoo! movies for the HD version:

Michael Jackson's "This Is It" Singapore screening

So while thousands around the world lined up last week to get their hands on tickets for the advanced screening of Michael Jackson's This Is It on Oct 27 in the US, I was left wondering - "Do I really want to watch this?" After all, I did grow up listening to the King of Pop and have always been in awe of his musicality and smoooth moves - do I really want to mar this memory by watching a so-called documentary made up of bits & pieces of rehearsal footage from what would have been the King's last concert?

The answer? I do. I need the closure. I definitely don't want the image of Jackson's body being transported out of his home to be my last image of him, it just wouldn't be fair. I don't want my memory of him to be clouded by the controversy over his autopsy or how Joe Jackson is desperately trying to milk the last dime off his dead son.

So tomorrow night, I will be among the lucky few who will be catching "This Is It" at the gala premiere in Singapore, organized by I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll get my hands on the goodies from the gala premiere, spotted over at @izreloaded's TwitPic. PS: Snaps for you if you tried getting your hands on one of the 10 pairs of tickets via the Sony Ericsson and contest.

Both Golden Village and Cathay are screening "This Is It" for a very limited run from 29 October - 4 November, so be sure to get your tickets! Check out the trailer below. Slip on that single glitter-adorned glove, roll up those white bobby socks and button up that MJ-inspired jacket and say a proper, tearful goodbye to the King of Pop.

On a side note, check out what Elizabeth Taylor had to say about "This Is It" via her Twitter, @DameElizabeth. He was loved, for sure.

@DameElizabeth: You owe it to yourselves and your loved ones to see this again and again. Memorize it and say to yourselves, "I saw genius in my lifetime"

My boys are back!

My boy Robbie Williams is back! Wooho! Can't wait for his new album Reality Killed the Video Star, which drops November 9. If his new single "Bodies" is anything to go by, it's going to be a helluva good ride for Robbie - he's definitely got his swing back. And his always loyal, loving fans (yay me) are welcoming him back with wide, open arms, even if he's in a long-term relationship with girlfriend Ayda Field (pronounced Ida).

And if you need more proof that Robbie belongs on the live stage - check out his crazy amazing performance of Bodies at BBC's Electric Proms

And because I'm lazy, I'm tossing in Adam Lambert's first single post American Idol, "Time for Miracles." I hate to say this, but Adam's hair is all wrong in the video - makes his face look fat! The stylist/director/whoever's in charge of Adam's look in the video needs to get their ass over to the DETAILS office and get some tips, coz Glambert is looking H-O-T on the cover of this month's DETAILS. And even better in the sexy black and white spread inside the magazine. Hint: There's Adam, and there's a naked woman.

Catching up on my Heath Ledger movies

After watching (500) Days of Summer last week, and completely going ga-ga over Joseph Gordon-Levitt, I couldn't shake off how much Joseph reminded me of Heath Ledger, and honestly, shivers ran down my spine. I love Heath, and honestly, his death was a huge loss to the movie industry. Young, charismatic, talented actors are so difficult to come by, and honestly, Heath had so much more to give.

And then I realized that I've actually never seen all of Heath's films, and making a list always makes me feel better - and it's a good way for me catch up on Heath's films before The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus opens in Singapore!

Heath Ledger Movies That I've Seen
  1. The Dark Knight (2008)
  2. I'm Not There. (2007)
  3. Casanova (2005)
  4. Brokeback Mountain (2005)
  5. The Brothers Grimm (2005)
  6. The Order (2003)
  7. The Four Feathers (2002)
  8. A Knight's Tale (2001)
  9. The Patriot (2000)
  10. 10 Things I Hate About You (1999)

Of the above, Brokeback Mountain is my all time top 10 movies, but I'll always have a soft spot for Heath in 10 Things I Hate About You - swept me off my feet with his rendition of Can't Take My Eyes Off You. Coincidentally, the movie also stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt! PS: I have a soft spot for cute men who can sing - Ewan, Robbie, Heath, Joseph.

Heath Ledger Movies That I've Yet To See

Note: I'm only listing movies where Heath plays the lead or a strong supporting actor.
  1. Two Hands (1999)
    Heath plays Jimmy, who finds himself in debt to a local gangster when some gang loot disappears and sets him on the run from thugs.

  2. Monster's Ball (2001)

  3. Ned Kelly (2003)
    With Geoffrey Rush, Orlando Bloom and Naomi Watts, Heath portrayed real-life Australian outlaw Ned Kelly who was considered an outlaw by some because he defied colonial authorities.

  4. Lords of Dogtown (2005
    The movie is about a group of brilliant young skateboarders raised in the mean streets of Dogtown in Santa Monica, California. Emile Hirsch is in the movie too!

  5. Candy (2006)
    Heath plays a poet who falls in love with an art student (played by Abbie Cornish). Hooked on heroin, their relationship alternates between states of oblivion, self-destruction, and despair.

Lost Generation

More creative work. At the end of the day, it's true - it's really about looking at things from a different perspective.

Goodnight Stephen, you made things better.

It was four hours ago when I first found out about the news, and my first thought was - this can't be true, it must be another cruel hoax, especially considering that most sites that carried the news have been quoting News of the World. As I maniacally did a search for more credible sources - the band's official web site, BBC, etc - I kept muttering to myself, "this can't be true, no, can't be, he's so young." I just had to let the news sink in: Stephen Gately, at 33, had died in his sleep while vacationing in Majorca, Spain. And then it hit me: I've never had the chance to see Boyzone in concert. Ever. I'm still reeling from the shock and I know that to many people, Stephen Gately was just another boyband member, and one who came out about his sexuality.

But Boyzone has always had a special place in my heart, even after all these years. And just like how people argued over whether John or Paul was better, the same can be said for Ronan and Stephen, but Boyzone being Boyzone, it was never really about who was better. It was about making good music - songs that were about more than just falling in love with girls or heartbreak. In all their songs, there was always a sense of humility and maturity. Just take a look at the video for "Better" (above) -- how many mainstream boybands would openly embrace same-sex relationships? Sure, I'm not ashamed to say that I had my girly teenage crush moments screaming at the screen when Stephen appeared in the "Key To My Life" video but at the same time, "Arms of Mary," "I'm Learning" and "Where Did You Go" probably unknowingly shaped my concept of what love means. And until today, "She Moved Through The Fair" still gives me shivers.

For the record, I actually bought Stephen's "New Beginning" album. Don't know what I'm talking about? See videos here: New Beginning, I Believe, Stay. For a cheeky side of see Stephen performing Beyonce's "Single Ladies" live in Wembley in 2009.

Stephen just oozed an easy charm that came so naturally, and the fact that he always seemed to shy away from interviews when he was in Boyzone just made him more adorable. You always knew when it was Stephen singing, sweet, beautiful and innocent. There will always be a place in my heart for Stephen Gately, and when I grow old & grey, my memories of Stephen Gately will keep me smiling. I know this love's forever and that's all that matters, no matter what.

Clash of the Titans: Liam Neeson as Zeus

New pics from Clash of the Titans, with Liam Neeson donning gold armor as Zeus! Interesting take on the God of all Greek Gods. I love that there's also a giant chessboard representation of the world at the feet!

On a side note, Liam Neeson has played the coolest characters on film, from Qui-Gon Jinn, Alfred Kinsey, the voice of Aslan (of Narnia) Oskar Schindler.
