Kung Fu Panda 2 | Movie Review

Po is back! The Dragon Warrior is on the screen once again with its second sequel. Released on August 16 in Indonesia (ya memang telat sekali Indonesia!!!!! gara gara kasus yang dulu itu), Kung Fu Panda 2 is still played in various Indonesia's cinema theaters.

Kungfu Panda 2 Movie Poster
The Furious Five and Po are asked to restore order in the Gongmen city as it is ruled by a tyrant peacock named Zen which plans to rule over China. Zen invents the use of fireworks as a deadly weapon. He plans to seize China with his newly invented weapon. However, the story becomes more interesting as it turns out that Zen plays a very important role in Po's past life. He is the key to understand who Po really is. Torn between his curiosity to deeply know his past life and his duty to restore order by defeating Zen, Po becomes a more complex character but still a funny character.

In the jokes department, frankly I think Kung Fu Panda 2 is less funny than its prequel. So, if you watch this movie and intend to laugh as hard as when you watch the first movie, you will be slightly disappointed. In return, you will be exposed to a more serious movie. I think Po is also growing up :) 

 As in its prequel, Kung Fu Panda 2 offers a very deep moral message to its viewers. The movie main point is between choosing whether to linger on your past or in your future. The movie teaches you not to always look back on the past. No matter how bad it is, your past is your past. What more important is your future. How you are going to be is not defined by your past. I think that is what the movie tries to convey. 

So, based on my review I will give it 8 points (of 10) !! It may not be as funny as the first movie, but the moral message is deeper !! Watch it with your son, daughter, siblings, family or whatsoever hahahaaa....

The Two Most Influential Postmodernist Thinkers

This second post about postmodernism will consist of two greatest postmodernist thinkers and their contribution to postmodernism.
1. Jean Fran├žois Lyotard.
Lyotard is a French philosopher. He opened the discussion for postmodernism in social theory with his groundbreaking publication ‘La Condition Postmoderne’ (The Condition Postmodern). His works stress the decline of meta-narratives or grand-narratives, as some scholars refer it. Meta-Narratives as defined in the previous post are sets of ideas governing what is right and wrong. For example, religion defines how to live a good life. By doing so, people who do not appeal to the characteristics of good man as defined by religion will be considered unfaithful, as bad people. Lyotard argues that this way of legitimating declines in a postmodern society. What is considered good can no longer be clearly separated from what is considered bad.

The decline of meta-narratives was triggered by communication development. Traditional communicatio…

Movie Review | Stream of Tears in Wedding Dress

Last Saturday, I got a runny nose -kind of severe, as I recalled- not because of sick, but because I watched a Korean movie entitled WeddingDress.
I have frequently watched Korean movies. In my opinion, they are much better than Indonesian movies. Not that I dislike my country (I just dislike Indonesia’s movies), but yeah, Korean movies have a wide range of preference. You can watch cheesy-funny-romantic movie that make you feel happy and smile all the time. Or try to watch a horror-romanticmovie that makes you laugh and scared. You can also find cool action movie! Some movies even make me cry a lot. I really mean it when I say some Korean movies really make me cry so badly. Wedding Dress is one that makes me cry. I am a boy and I cry. So what? I don’t buy the ubiquitous saying ‘Boys don’t cry’.

Wedding Dress narrates the life of a single mother, Go-eun, played by Song Yun Ah. Her husband dies already, leaving her only with her young daughter, So-ra, nicely played by Kim Hyang-gi. …

Gender Issues in Japanese Anime and Manga

I've got this idea to write about Japan's popular culture for  some times. Firstly, I love Japan's popular culture such as anime and manga.Japan's anime and manga are so popular around the world, transcending nations, age, sex and gender. I read Japan's  manga from the age of 10 (may be), until now. I watched Japan's anime also for years.

One thing that really makes me wonder is about the depiction of gender in those popular culture product. Before furthering the discussion, it is important to say that i follow Ann Oakley's argumentation to differ sex and gender. Sex is naturally determined, while gender is socioculturally constructed. Thus, to speak of male and female is to speak of sex. While to speak of masculine and feminine is to speak of gender. In doing gender (attributing gender characteristics in body), people are for so long stereotyped by the existing binary relation. It means that male should develop masculine traits to be called as a real man.…
