Gil Birmingham in 'Hell or High Water'

Gil Birmingham (Billy Black in the Twilight saga) is currently starring in a new film, Hell or High Water. A Un Certain Regard selection at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, this film also stars Chris Pine, Jeff Bridges, and Ben Foster.

United again after years of separation, two brothers work together to rob the branches of the bank threatening to foreclose on their family land. Just when things seem to go their way, they come across a Texas Ranger, who is looking for one last pursuit before his retirement. As the brothers plot their final heist, they will have to face the ranger and his half-Comanche partner, Alberto.

Rated 18, and locally distributed by TGV Pictures, Hell or High Water is now screening in cinemas nationwide.

#Throwback: 27th November, 2008!

27th November, 2008. The day we, Malaysians, had our first taste of the pop culture phenomenon we call Twilight. It was 8 years ago when the craze swept the nation, and thus we became emotionally invested in Edward Cullen, Bella Swan, Jacob Black, the Cullen clan, the Quileute shapeshifters, the Swan family, and the entire universe of sparkling vampires.

This unorthodox vampire movie, based on the novel written by Stephenie Meyer (#Queen), introduced us then-quite-unknown actors like Robert Pattinson (who has quite a career after this one, besides being in Harry Potter before Twilight, and also a Teen Choice Award winner), Kristen Stewart (An outstanding film career, and a Cesar Award winner) and Taylor Lautner (he's on TV, and also an MTV Movie Award winner). We also got to say hi to many more actors along the way throughout the entire 4-movie saga, some iconic ones, like Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard, Dakota Fanning (but we all already know her), Charlie Bewley, Nikki Reed, Kellan Lutz, Ashley Greene, Jackson Rathbone, Billy Burke, Michael Sheen, Alex Meraz, Cam Gigandet, Booboo Stewart (who's now in Disney's Descendants!) and many more outstanding talent.

To celebrate the beginning of it all, I'm reposting a video I made ages ago (8 years, to be exact), back when I was still a rookie at this fanblog (and video making) thing.

Thanks for all the love since 2008, and for those who are still reading this blog, I thank you, and I love you all.

I'll try to keep this updated as often as possible,
