148 baddest looking bikers, would you have gotten the Carlsberg?

Carlsberg pulled a stunt on several unsuspecting couples going to a movie theater. They filled a Belgian cinema with the baddest looking bikers, and left only two seats in the middle empty. Their reactions were priceless.

Watch the video and answer the poll

Watch it! Real Steel 2011

The Perception
If you’ve watched the trailer, it sums up as an action packed fantasy robot fighting movie. Boxing, steel, Hugh Jackman. A movie where you can smell its testosterone from miles away.

The Surprise
The surprise was, it offers way more than that. It’s not just some metal on metal pounding like Transformers the movie. It’s not just some boxing plot showing a rags to riches story.

When was the last time you heard the crowd in the cinema cheering away with the movie? The energy the movie brought was so high that the audience is literally shouting ouch as each punch is throw at each other.

Acting performances from Hugh Jackman, Evangeline Lily and Dakota Goyo really hits the spot. Their relationship felt genuine and realistic. The 12 year old Dakota Goyo will definitely make your tears roll down your cheeks at certain scenes.

The comedic elements would pop out as cheesy if not scripted properly. But Real Steel did it so well it just kept the crowd laughing.

Computer graphics of the robots are so realistic you just can’t stop helping to think that ‘Where can I buy one of these after I leave the cinema?’

It is truly a perfect cross over movie transcending from modern day fiction to a timeless classic.

Favorite Scene
When Charlie Kenton (Hugh Jackman) goes into shadow mode with Atom the robot and Max Kenton (Dakota Goyo) watches him.

Real Steel, Real Deal.

Don’t watch it! Super 8

Before you roar, hear me out first.

If you’re an adolescent or an adolescent at heart, you’ll love it, go watch it, period.

Like any other JJ Abrams story, he’s always into the extraordinary. Super 8 is like watching Lost TV series, you’re subjected to being lost for more than half of the show before you get a glimpse of the alien and slightly figure out what’s going on.

But I won’t rule it out as a bad movie. Story wise, it will always appeal to the younger generation where you think your life sucks and you wish to be special. The movie brings you to meet a boy with a broken background who meets someone beautiful and falls in love and kinda save the day.

Execution wise, it’s great. Hollywood’s CGI these days are superb. With Steven Spielberg producing it, it ensures suspense and fun!

Favorite Scene
Not a scene, but the ending credits short film – The Case
