That ‘s what reepicheep said to eustace.

I just watched Narnia : The Voyage of the Dawn Treader; in 3D mode! No, i dont want to review this movie. It is the experienced. Watching this movie in 3D mode, you would have no subtitle in Bahasa. Actually, as far as i know, all movie presented on 3D will be presented without subtitle.

Entering the theater, i just couldnt stop laughing. Haha.. All people looks like a moron, with that stupid 3d glasses. After i found my seat and started to put my glasses, it became funnier. All people became lady gaga, including me. ahahaha….

Ok, go to the movie.

Blimey! they speak fast and of course with their heavy British accent. sotoy. Sometime, i was lost in translation. Literally.

The jokes. It is even better. I love to have those British jokes. Like Lightman did in Lie To Me. Very typically British jokes. Stupid accent with silly face like nothing happens. It’s just perfect.

The 3d mode, it is not so spectacular. I recall there is only one memorable scene related to the 3d effect. When the arrow flew away, hitting the creature.

Back to the topic. I could say that this movie has so many inspirational speeches.

“extraordinary things happen in extraordinary people.”

“Because there I have another name. You must learn to know me by that name. This was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there.”

With so-heavy-aslan-voice, the message becomes more meaningful. So what reepicheep did. Although he is so talkative, his words really show his noble heart as a warrior, as a servant.

Good movie for self reflecting.

Be brave! for narnia!! for people we loved!!!

Dari piala AFF, semangat nasionalisme bangsa ini kembali bergelora. Entah karena kebetulan dilatih pelatih asing dan tambahan dua pemain naturalisasi, nampaknya permainan relatif meningkat, walaupun belum cukup settle. Rasanya seperti sudah akut mengalami inferior kompleks. Jikalau bersama asing, rasanya kemampuan pun ikut meningkat, so do tis and tat. Namun tak bisa dipungkiri jika memang didikan asing ternyata memang bisa membawa hasil yang lebih baik.

Lagi, fenomena nasionalisme muncul ketika bangsa ini mempunyai ‘musuh bersama’. Semua orang berbondong bondong mengatakan ‘Garuda di dadaku’ ketika dihadapkan pada negeri gajah putih.Diiringi lagu Netral – garuda di dadaku, merinding rasanya ketika BP menjebol gawang Thailand yang kedua kalinya.

Mungkin dari perhelatan piala AFF ini ada sedikit yang bisa kita pelajari. Bahwasanya kemampuan bangsa ini pun mempunyai potensi yang luar biasa. Tanpa mengurangi appresiasi saya terhadap Irfan dan El Loco, saya kira produk lokal seperti Bambang Pamungkas sangat lah hebat. Belum lagi rasa nasionalismenya terhadap merah putih sudah tak terbantahkan jika melihat tulisannya disini.

Ah, andai saja kita (termasuk saya) semua bisa melepaskan ego untuk kemajuan bangsa. Andai saja kita bisa merubah mindset romantisme  nasionalisme kita, dari sekedar teriak ganyang mengganyang negeri sebelah  menjadi tindakan konkrit bekerja memajukan perekonomian bangsa.

Mungkin karena terlalu lama dijajah, kita kian ‘sabar’ menunggu datangnya ratu adil yang mampu menakodai bangsa ini sehingga kita dengan mudahnya menyatakan mengalamai krisis kepemimpinan.

Terkesan utopis memang, tapi optimisme itu kan harus tetap selalu ada. Moga2 makin banyak manusia Indonesia yang dengan alasan yang sangat terdengar klise itu memang tulus ingin memajukan negeri ini.

*bercermin diri*

Terbanglah garudaku, majulah Indonesiaku.
