Orchid and Movie

        In this blog I've posted everything that related to orchid..This is my first post about orchid in movies even though this is totally the fantasy one, but the use of orchid in the main storyline makes it interesting to me..Why orchid, not other flower? Maybe because orchid throughout history has long been known to exudes an aura of mystery, elusive and their exotic appearance makes it suit to be in the main storyline..

       So, what movie is it? I think you have seen it, quite popular, though to me  its kinda cheesy..If you haven't and wants to watch it, don't analyze anything..kinda no brainer movie, strictly popcorn, with cheap FX..need I say more? The movie is Anacondas : The Hunts For The Blood's the synopsis and the movie poster..

        Kali ni nak pos cerita orkid di dalam filem pula..ini pos yang pertama untuk tajuk ni..Dalam filem ni  bunga orkid telah dikaitkan dengan perjalanan cerita..Kenapa orkid? kenapa tak bunga lain..Mungkin sebab yang kita dah sedia maklum sejarah orkid ni panjang..bunga yang ada aura misteri, sukar dijumpai dan kelihatan eksotik sesuai dengan cerita berbentuk pengembaraan ni..

        Jadi filem apa tu? Tak lain tak bukan ialah filem Anaconda : The Hunt For The Blood Orchid'. kat sini popularlah jugak tapi cerita ni  tahap gred B saja..tak perlu fikir apa pun cuma nak tengok ular anaconda tu telan orang saja..ha..ha..efek jangan ceritalah, macam murah saja..Nak cerita lagi..tak payahlah..kepada yang belum tengok ni sinopsis dan poster wayangnya..


       In New York, the ambitious Dr. Jack Byron and his associate Gordon Mitchell present the research of his assistant Sam Rogers to the CEO and board of directors of a corporation to sponsor a scientific expedition to Borneo. The objective is to find a flower, Blood Orchid, that flourishes for a couple of weeks every seven years and could be a fountain of youth, prolonging the expectation of life of human beings. They are succeeded and once in Borneo, they realize that it is the raining season and there is no boat available to navigate on the river. They pay US$ 50,000.00 to convince Captain Bill Johnson and his partner Tran to sail to the location. After an accident in a waterfall, the survivors realize that a pack of anacondas have gathered for mating and their nest is nearby the colony of Blood Orchid, which made them bigger and bigger..

                                                          And..the movie trailer..

          This is the fictional ' Blood orchid' named in the movie 'Perrinia immortalis'..I search the word 'Perrinia'  is actually a genus of sea snail...Does this even look like an orchid? Yeah..yeah..alright..don't be too critical, the anacondas are the main star here..Hey its just a movie..Maybe they want to create a bizarre imaginary orchid to convey that this is super special..cause this so called blood orchid that can renew living cells never existed. Well, its a fantasy after all, whatever they claim we have to, in the movie this blood orchid plant looks like a genus Cymbidium, with a long strap leaved foliage..Watch the movie if you don't expect anything substantial..

 lah bunga orkid yang diceritakan di dalam filem ni..'Blood orchid'. Kalau diterjemah jadi 'orkid darah' kenalah dengan warnanya tu..Nama saintifiknya ialah Perrinia immortalis..sedap..tapi saya cari dalam internet 'Perrinia' tu nama saintifik bagi sejenis siput laut...Bunga ni nampak macam orkid ke? Apa-apa aja lah..jangan kritikal sangat, faham-faham sajalah cerita fantasi..mana orkid macam ni wujud..dikatakan khasiatnya boleh melambatkan proses penuaan..Jadi untuk filem ni mereka rekalah bunga orkid fantasi yang pelik supaya dapat meyakinkan lagi penonton dengan khasiat yang diperkatakan tu..terima ajalah..lagi satu pokok orkid ini digambarkan lebih kurang macam pokok Cymbidium..tumbuh di atas tanah dengan rumpun yang berdaun panjang..Kalau nak tengok filem ni silalah..untuk seronok-seronok aja..


                                                              I brought the film like a flower to the world.

  1. Now I want to see the movie. Thanks for sharing!

    1. to all the commentators, The Hunt for the Blood Orchid movie very stressful and I am very proud that most of his shots were in Borneo island which is famous for its tropical forests. Flowers Perrinia Immortalis actually not orchids, I found the flower similar to what is described or referred to by the director that the flim makers and we are examining the content contained on such interest in the lab, and hopefully will become a drug to delay aging in humans . If the commentator wanted to see a picture of the interest please email it to me ( Thank
