EDITED 29th November : Ok, I heard the movie trailer is promising. Go give Cicakman a chance. Ignore what I wrote earlier (below).
Sometimes, I don’t know to laugh or cry at our [tag]Malaysians[/tag] idiosyncrasies. Just the movie title alone is already enough to make me laugh.
Cicak Man has makings of a hit
ALOR STAR: Malaysiaâ€™s very first funny superhero â€“[tag] The Cicak Man [/tag] â€“ is set to make an impact with [tag]movie [/tag]goers.
Lead actor Saiful Apek said the movie, which would be released during Hari Raya, had the potential to penetrate the Western market.
Saiful said Cicak Man proves that Malaysia had creative talents to take the filming industry far. (I no bluff wan lah, this taken from The Star)
OMG, did you all read the paper reported Cicakman, touted as Malaysia first [tag]superhero[/tag] movie?
I can only think of two things the cicak or the house lizard does best. Lick with its long tongue and shit all over the place. So, yeah…kita, bangsa [tag]Malaysia[/tag] amat bangga dengan wira negara yang pandai jilat dan berak.
(check the related posts for more pics of cicaks in my house)
Suddenly, the memories of Hashim, my ex-colleague came to mind. Hashim was a despatch guy, 50+ yrs old. He loved (I use the past tense ‘cos by now he probably is too old) to brag about how ‘good’ he is with women. He have two wives. His favourite phrase was, “Mai aku jilat sat” (come let me lick). He would do that with all the girls but married women like us can only giggles while the young, innocent clerks would go, “Huh?” Then, he would flexed his biceps and asked the clerks to ‘picit tengok? keras tak?’ So, the girls bodoh-bodoh check out Pak Cik Hashim. And he would tell them, “Tempat lain lagi keras.” Gee, I love colleagues like that. Good for laughs.
Ini dia…Cicakman…our Malaysian first superhero, prowling the nights, helping desperate housewives with what he does best. “Mai aku jilat sat”. And ladies, don’t forget to pick up his shits.
I can imagine how Cicakman is going to torment the bad guys. He is going to ‘cluck’ (lizards make clicking sounds) till they go crazy. And instead of zapping the bad guys with lasers, Cicakman is going to shit them silly. You know….the little black shit with a white little dot? Yeah…after he had saved all the desperate, damsels in distress, help to ‘jilat sat’, he will leave his trails of little black shits with tiny white dots. Damsels will look lovingly, with glazed eyes, messed up hairs while they picked up the shits, one by one.
Aduhai…Malaysian film makers, kalau nak create superhero, at least create it based on some animals we can be proud of. Like the Kijangman, Kancilman, Kelisaman, Khai..ok,ok, you get it.
Let me introduce you to the dhub from the Sahara Desert. This is not a reptile but a fish? Sebab binatang ni ada sirip, lidah tak bercabang, maka halal untuk orang Muslim, boleh dijadi ubat. Hehehe, so said the Pakcik, the medicine man in Kuala Terengganu.
BTW, who knows why cicak’s shit got a white dot at the top? Let’s think of more future superheroes’ names, shall we? Siputbabiman, semutkongkekman, ulatbuluman, katakpuruman, kodokman, lalatman…
