Upin & Ipin the movie

I have heard of Upin & Ipin but never had the chance to view the short films during the month of Ramadhan. The positive feedback I collected from the latest movie of Upin & Ipin- Geng: Pengembaraan Bermula made me decided to give it a shot & at the same time, support our film industry. The last time I did that was somewhere last year watching "Sepi" which was rather menyepikan to me (well, it was not 100% Malaysian anyway...). Didn't drag HB as I knew he would irritably doze off next to me. Anyhow, I did make him watch "Tentang Bulan" together with the girls. Surprisingly, he enjoyed the movie much better than the girls did. The plot of the movie was during our childhood years & obviously it brought back memories of riding chopper bicycle & munching on Popo fish cracker.

Last night I made an online booking to watch the movie.This time around I was quite sure HB would put the local film industry one step higher. I did steal some glances at him just now in the dark. He was enjoying himself, minus the infamous frown & above all... he didn't snore away!

I was impressed myself with the animation. The movie was entertaining. I laughed... A compliment there because of all local productions only P.Ramlee movies agree to my sense of humour & yes, Tentang Bulan too. There was also suspense which spoiled Balqis's mood. She was almost in tears just now. Good that she sat next to HB. If she were with me, she definitely would burst simply out of manja.

We came out of the cinema still smiling. HB admitted that he failed to guess the villain. Which was a surprise to me. It was so clear who the scoundrel was from the beginning. It showed he was too occupied with the brilliance of this Made In Malaysia 3D animation ;-) Do find the time to watch this movie. It is still showing even though after a month & a half in the cinema.


Here is a video clip of the movie.

Hi Jabishah, nice of hubby to come along see this movie. Guess I am no longer familiar with these movies being away 22 years.

You have fun Jabishah, best regards, Lee.
