#Popcorn : Divergent (2014)

Last Sunday, I was supposed to go shopping to get a new jeans and shirt before I flew off. I went to The Denim Store and they don’t have stock for the jeans that I wanted. I didn’t get the chance to shop for my shirt too because we went to watch movie in between. We were suppose to watch Non Stop but the screen features only couple seating so we have to change our movie. We decided to go for Divergent.

Divergent is a thrilling action-adventure set in a future world where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personalities.

There are a total of 5 factions;

Abnegation the selfless
Dauntless the brave
Erudite the intelligent
Candor the honest
Amity the peaceful.

When all teenagers reach the age of 16, they have to choose between this two choices; to  stay in their faction of birth, or transfer into another faction. Tris Prior is warned that she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. She need to make the decision whether to stay with her family in a faction she feels she isn’t right for, or to transfer into another faction, and leave her family behind.

Did she choose to stay or leave ? If she chose to leave, which faction did she chose ? Will she survive in that faction ? Watch the movie and you will find out the answer.

Overall, the movie was way beyond my expectations. The movie is very long and it can be slightly boring because everything happened in a same city.

I don’t know any of the cast except for Kate Winslet. Overall, I think all the casts did a good job.

I even fell in love with the main actress, Shailene Woodley. She is my cup of tea. Brave, never give up attitude, cool and most importantly, she is pretty ! Haha sound so cheesy.

 I even fell in love with their soundtrack ! Listen to Ellie Goulding’s Beating Heart now ! Awesome.

 

You can watch the trailer above. It’s a movie that you wouldn’t want to miss. Grab a popcorn and get your ass in the cinema now before it’s too late !

OVERALL RATING: 4/5

Red Bridge in Singapore Poly is Really Haunted ?

Last Halloween, I posted a post about ITAS Block in Temasek Poly. Today, I’ll talk more about Red Bridge in Singapore Poly. There are a lot of stories about this bridge. Is Red Bridge really haunted ?

red-bridge1

Red Bridge is a bridge that links Block T21 to Block T22. those who take the MRT from Dover towards Clementi, you may probably see a red coloured bridge.

From what I heard, there have been cases of suicide which took place more than 10 years ago. 

According to Tachikawa in keeptouch forum page, the red bridge wasn’t painted red originally. One night, there was this very distressed SP student. . She went up to the red bridge with a rope. 

The red bridge is pretty high up, located between 2 blocks in the School of Business of SP, which is up on a pretty steep hill. The bridge was on the 4th – 5th level, add that to the steep valley-like drop down below between both blocks makes it pretty scary. She tied the rope to the railings of the 2nd level (top) of the bridge. 

After tying, off she went. She took the plunge. Then a freaky thing happened. She must have jumped off with a tremendous amount of force. Once the rope reached its maximum tautness, the neck just couldn’t take the force, and literally split into two. The head was left tied to the rope, and the body just dropped down to the valley below. 

According to him, he is pretty sure that the incident did really happened because he read it in the papers. 

He added that he doesn’t know who decided to paint the bridge red. Other sources said that SP engaged a priest and the priest advise  to paint the bridge red to appease spirit. 

Fact or fiction? I’ll leave it up to your imagination.
