A movie: Real Steel!

Friday, September 30, 2011

When I was at the movies earlier this week, I saw the trailer for "Real Steel". Wow! I am so going to watch this!

This is a story set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech. It stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring.

Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender.

As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.

I like this kind of inspiring stories and with robots thrown in, the little boy in me cannot resist it!

Play the Real Steel game and win movie premiums.

Today, as part of CHildren's day celebration, I watched the smurf movie with my son at Lido. Organised by his school, of course.

At this stage, I guessed its the person/people who is watching the movie with me that is more important.

Hi financialray,

My sis watched Smurf the Movie with my niece too. They told me it is very good. Maybe, I will watch it on DVD.

Yes, often, it is the company we are in that makes a difference. :)
