Istanbul Aku Datang

Okay, I have to admit, I don't watch Malay movies that often at the cinemas. It's not that I don't watch Malay movies at all, I do. I actually do watch them a lot but often on TV or DVDs or sometimes, I buy them on Astro First. I don't know why I don't watch them in theaters, but I just don't. Maybe because Malay movies are cheaper to watch them at home although I will have to wait sometime for the movie to come out on DVD or Astro First. Because like, if let's say a ticket costs me RM10 and of course I would want to watch it with someone else (I don't know how some people can watch movies alone), so the cost would be around RM20, if I were to go with one other person. On the other hand, with Astro First, I can buy a movie at about RM15 and I can watch it with 100 people if I want to. Plus, I can watch the movie at the comfort of my own home and I can eat any snacks I bought from 7 Eleven. Heck, I can even eat nasi lemak while watching if I want to. Yes, I'm a cheapskate like that. Oh well.

The only movies I can remember watching in theaters are Ombak Rindu and Jangan Pandang Belakang. So last week, I saw a tweet on my timeline talking about a movie called 'Aku, Dia & Tong Sampah'. At first, I was being so judgmental and thought 'what kind of movie title is that?' but then I found out that their wardrobe was sponsored by Fashion Valet. So typically, I went on YouTube and searched for its trailer. But who would have guessed? YouTube even has the full movie! I've watched it twice and now I feel like watching it again! It's such a good movie. Other than the awesome clothes they wore in the movie, I really really like the storyline and the amazing actors made it a million times better too! *coughBetoKusyairycough* Hehehe.

Speaking of Beto Kusyairi, I watched his newest movie, Istanbul Aku Datang, last weekend. Watched it at the theatre this time. If I were to rate this movie on a scale of 10, I would definitely rate it a full 10 because I enjoyed the whole movie. I love the fact that it's not a typical love story movie. So if you haven't watch it, go book your tickets now!!

Local movies are getting better and better these days, it's amazing! 



Istanbul Aku Datang is a good movie indeed :D
