My Favourite Film

8 April 2010

Akhir2 ini makin sering cari info tentang film “The Great Queen Seon Deok”. Ternyata banyak banget loh yg suka. Memang sih filmnya dah selesai tayang, tapi kesannya masih berasa.

Film yg penuh strategi dan taktik politik, seru banget deh. Ditambah lagi pakaian n pernak-perniknya yg bagus banget, Setting tempatnya yg full of historical places. Kita ko ga punya tempat pariwisata seperti itu ya.

Satu pertanyaan besar, kenapa kita ga coba bikin film yg mirip-mirip gitu. Well, my father said sih “Sejarah Indonesia itu kelam, banyak pemberontakan dan perebutan kekuasaan”. Padahal kita kan punya kerajaan-kerajaan besar kan, seperti Sriwijaya, Majapahit, Singosari, dll lah. Pengennya sih ada kisah yang diangkat tuk dibuat film. Dulu sih ada kisah Saur Sepuh kalau ga salah. Lupa, abisnya dah lama banget.

Pengennya sih kita punya film yg setting lokasinya real, jangan cuma di studio alam aja. Trus pakaian n aksesorisnya juga yg excellent gitu, biar menarik. Nanti pasti banyak yg nonton. Sekalian belajar sejarah pula. Jadi anak-anak Indonesia hafal dan bangga sejarah Indonesia.

Kalau kita lihat di cinema, banyak film bertema hantu dibumbui adegan vulgar. Film yg sama sekali tidak menarik. Meskipun begitu masih ada ko film-film yg mengangkat tema yg menarik.

Sunday Morning

It happened on Sunday morning a few days ago. When I was about to have my routine cup of coffee along with a bagel, I realized that I did not have any bread at all. I have to admit that I am unable to enjoy coffee without some kind of baked goods.
Then I decided to run out to buy something, but all the stores were closed, but one. That store did not have any fresh pastries, and I ended up buying four slices of wheat bread. I was frustrated for two reasons: firstly, I couldn’t enjoy drinking my coffee on Sunday morning; and secondly, the sales woman charged me $3.00 for four slices of bread!
Next, I returned to the building where I live on the tenth floor, stepped into the elevator, pushed the button, and got out. When I reached my apartment and tried to unlock the door, I could not turn the key. I made a few attempts without success. I started banging on the door hoping to wake up my daughter. I was not successful at that either.
I can’t explain how it crossed my mind to check the number of the apartment. The apartment number was correct, except for the first digit: the apartment was on the ninth floor, but the tenth. I was shocked to realize that I had been banging on somebody else’s door.
I still muse over what might have happened if somebody had opened the door and what he or she would have said to me at 8:00 a.m on Sunday morning.

Phil Collin

Last week I took my five-year old son, Willy, to a musical instrument store in my hometown. I wanted to buy him a set of junior drum because his drum teacher advised me to buy him one. Willy likes listening to music very much. He also likes asking me everything he wants to know. Even his questions sometimes seem precocious for a boy of his age. He is very inquisitive.
We went there by car. On the way, we saw a policeman standing near a traffic light regulating the passing cars and other vehicles. He blew his whistle now and then.
Seeing the policeman blowing his whistle, Willy asked me at once, “Dad, why is the policeman using a whistle, not a drum?”
Hearing his unexpected question I answered reluctantly, “Because he is not Phil Collin!”
