"Dee", Our First Telemovie

I've written quite a few things for television over the past two years. I don't think I've ever talked extensively about them, not here at least. So what makes Dee so special? I guess with most of the stuff I've done in the past, they were in the neighbourhood of ghostwriting, where I helped other people bring their vision to life. This wasn't the case with Dee.

It's finally coming out in a day's time! I haven't seen the final product myself. I just hope they didn't Oh My English-ed it (i.e. go crazy with sound effects and cartoon noises), even if it is made for Astro Ceria. I don't think they did, though. But hey, I'm excited regardless. If you get the chance to catch it, do let me know what you think!

Paku [2013]

Director: P. Ramesh
Writers: Alexander (original story), Shahriza Mahmud (adapted by)
Starring: Johan As'ari, Aishah Ilias, Wan Hanafi Su, Zaidi Omar, Azad Jazmin
Genre: Horror/Supernatural
Rating: Teen
Verdict: "Should have been lost in the rubble as well..."

Fahmi (Johan As'ari) and Rania (Aishah Ilias) seem to have it all. However, disaster strikes when Rania is pregnant with their second child; their apartment building collapses just when she forgets how seatbelts work and gets crushed to death inside their car. Unable to live a single day without her, he does the most logical thing he could think of, which is to try and bring her back to life with the help of a shaman, and a best friend who has no sense of self-preservation. Then other stuff happens.

What to Expect
1. Barely an unintentional comedy
2. Not scarrier [sic] than The Conjuring
3. Also, not a better love story than Twilight
4. Commendable production value
5. Waste of talents
6. Magic Indonesians
7. Godawful subtitles

What NOT to Expect
1. Actual comedy or horror

Harry Potter In Real Life

They have a bunch of movie-characters-in-real-life videos in this YouTube channel. I'm more taken with this one because the boy's a pretty good actor.
