Bila neraka jadi beku

That's roughly about when I'll be reviewing Senario The Movie Episode 2: Beach Boys.

I may be TMBF, courageous critic of Malaysian cinema, who ventures into the benighted depths to shine the light of truth on the wretched and the damned - but I ain't that courageous. I mean, have you seen the trailer? That alone is eye-gougingly bad. Are there people who actually watch this shit, much less pay for it? People above the age of 6? Who are in possession of all their mental faculties?

I dunno what to say about the entire Senario franchise. Six movies in ten years, the last one was just last year, and it apparently made RM4 million in 10 days.

But y'know, I've heard similar announcements of box-office moolah regarding Jin Notti and Momok The Movie, and I watched both movies in half-empty and near-empty cinemas. So forgive me if I suspect that local film producers often partake in a little profit-fixing.

In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if some studios are outright money-laundering outfits. You heard it here first, folks.

Hey, I thot Senario II, the one about the warring warongs was decent for a Malay film.

I think Aziz M Osman had a hand in that and the whole family had a good time. It had it's excellent moments, like when the chef came out to scold the dining couple (see, I can still remember it!) and the bit where the sweaty roti canai man was soaking disgusting..

But yes, the rest were insanely awful..
