A series of unfortunate events

A friend of mine introduced this movie to me a while ago but I only managed to get my hands on it lately. This movie is an adaptation from the book series entitled the same. I'd read a few pages of the books while browsing in MPH bookstore long time ago. 

I'm absolutely in love with this movie. It's not your typical romance/action/thriller movie. It is about the adventure of 3 orphans after the dead of their parents in a fire and how they tried to escape from Count Olaf, the man whom try to get their inherited fortune. I shouldn't reveal it all here but if you fancy the dark comedy film, mystery and old century wardrobe which I absolutely adore, then this is your movie. 

Sunny, Violet and Klaus Boudelaire

Among the Boudelaire kids, Sunny is definitely my favorite. I mean, how could you resists such a cute little infant? And Count Olaf, he's hilarious. The villains in every dark comedy movies always manage to get me goes aww and ooh. A thumbs up for this movie.

If you fancy dark comedy movie, try watching Sweeney Todd The Demon Barber in Fleet Street and Public Enemy, these are among my favorite. One disclaimer though, it has nothing to do with the fact that my Captain Jack Sparrow played the lead role in both movies. Okay, maybe a little because I don't think other actors can be as good as Johnny Depp. 

Weather these days are so predictable, the sun shine in full blast in the morning and when evening came, thunder and lightning with heavy rain came along. It felt like summer in the morning and thunderstorm in the evening. I love the rain but it rain a little too much lately. Tomorrow I'll be going to Wind Cave in Bau and Gunung Gading in Lundu for my Ecotourism field trip and I hope the weather will be on my side. 


  1. I read the book and loved it

  2. I really love to read the book someday, somehow book is always better than movie.
