  1. Great list bro. I wasn't expecting The Perks of being a Wallflower though. :P (Different people different taste) :D Denzel Washington never disappoints. :) Saw Life of Pi twice in the theaters. Very good movie and awesome 3D. :D Django Unchained truly was a masterpiece by Quentin. Always watch his movies for the explicit blood & gore (and the occasional script) :P Zero Dark Thirty was good, but a tad boring.

    All in all a good list. Keep them coming. :) Also try watching Les Miserables.. I dare you... :P

    Mạc Thiên Vân đã chuẩn bị kỹ rồi, chỉ cần đao vừa tới tay, lập tức xoay người phá vây rời khỏi nơi này, không thí luyện nữa, mà trực tiếp trở về Trung Tam Thiên!

    Mạc Thiên Vân chưa từng nghĩ tới lại có thể đoạt được đao kiếm vào giờ khắc này. Nhưng chỉ cần Viêm Dương đao tới tay, thì chẳng khác nào nắm giữ được một nửa bí mật trở thành võ thánh.

    Về phần một nửa còn lại, có thể dùng quỷ kế, có thể trao đổi, có thể liên minh.... tóm lại là có rất nhiều thủ đoạn.

    "Dừng tay!"

    "Ngăn hắn lại!"

    Một loạt tiếng xé gió vang lên. Vô số ám khí đều hướng về phía đám người Mạc thị gia tộc mà gào thét xông tới. Giờ khắc này, sưu sưu sưu, xoẹt xoẹt xoẹt... trên đầu bốn người Mạc thị gia tộc đột nhiên xuất hiện mưa ám khí như lê hoa bạo vũ!

    Mưa ám khí!

    Ba vị vương tọa cùng nhảy ra ngoài, gió lốc nguyên khí mãnh liệt quanh cơ thể trong phút chốc đã thành hình! Trong thời khắc chuông treo mành chỉ, phản ứng của ba vị vương tọa có thể nói cực nhanh, chính xác tới cực điểm.

    Quang mang đao kiếm cùng lóe lên, đánh bay hết ám khí sang một bên, mà một người khác liều mạng chỉ bằng nguyên khí hộ thể cũng đã xông ra ngoài, chính diện đối đầu ám khí, nhằm thẳng Viêm Dương đao.
