Chilli & Durian. Barbie & Homer Simpson. Cowboys & Aliens.
What do these pairs have in common? Well, we at Churp Churp find the pairings slightly unconventional and some of us even had our eyebrows raised figuring out the connection between each of them to make up the odd pairs.
Cowboys and Aliens are indeed colliding on the golden screen and we’re happy to bring to you all the action in our next screening courtesy of United International Pictures! Wouldn’t it be interesting to find out how they would face each other?
Here’s something about the movie:
Blockbuster filmmaker Jon Favreau directs Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford in an event film for summer 2011 that crosses the classic Western with the alien-invasion movie in a blazingly original way: Cowboys & Aliens. Joined by an arsenal of top moviemakers—Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci—he brings an all-new action thriller that will take audiences into the Old West, where a lone cowboy leads an uprising against a terror from beyond our world.
1875. New Mexico Territory. A stranger (Craig) with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don’t welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde (Ford). It’s a town that lives in fear.
But Absolution is about to experience fear it can scarcely comprehend as the desolate city is attacked by marauders from the sky. Screaming down with breathtaking velocity and blinding lights to abduct the helpless one by one, these monsters challenge everything the residents have ever known.
Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation. As this gunslinger slowly starts to remember who he is and where he’s been, he realizes he holds a secret that could give the town a fighting chance against the alien force. With the help of the elusive traveler Ella (Olivia Wilde), he pulls together a posse comprised of former opponents—townsfolk, Dolarhyde and his boys, outlaws and Apache warriors—all in danger of annihilation. United against a common enemy, they will prepare for an epic showdown for survival.
The screenplay for Cowboys & Aliens is by Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman & Damon Lindelof and Mark Fergus & Hawk Ostby, from a screen story by Fergus & Ostby and Steve Oedekerk. It is based on Platinum Studios’ “Cowboys & Aliens” by Scott Mitchell Rosenberg. Grazer, Howard, Kurtzman, Orci and Rosenberg produce. Spielberg, Favreau, Denis L. Stewart, Bobby Cohen, Randy Greenberg and Ryan Kavanaugh executive produce. www.cowboysandaliensmovie.com

It was our very first attempt at it…we were a li’l nervous but very VERY excited.
We talked about it for a while and we decided it was about time we had it… and so… we had it.
Our very FIRST #ChurpOut session of Churp Churp!
…and it was Awesomemazing! *wipes sweat*
First of all, a big thank you to all of you who took time off your precious Friday night to meet (but mostly play) with us at our #ChurpOut session @ Mark’s Place! For those of you who missed it, no worries as we will do our best to organize more #ChurpOuts in the future. Here’s our coverage of the event!
Mark’s Place is a little quaint neighborhood restaurant at Plaza Kelana Jaya, it’s a perfect place to chill with friends after a busy day’s work.
Since it was a Friday night, we started off a little later than expected but the place was instantly warmed up with the arrival of more happy churpers that night.
We started off with a little Sausage eating competition where some of you REALLY amazed us with your speed eating skills! 5 eager churpers stepped up to the challenge that night to win our exclusive limited edition Churp Churp flashdrive and the prize went to… Simon! For those of us who were there, we knew how intense the competition was, didn’t we? =)
Shortly after the competition, we had the ever friendly owner, Mark to present his brand new menu for the restaurant. For those of you who have not tried Mark’s food, we urge you to do so as every dish in the menu is made out of his very own recipe!
At Churp Churp, we are all supporters of local talents and hence we had a local band – Freeloaders to take the stage, entertaining the crowd while the dinner was served.
We then had a little game to work out a bit after the scrumptious dinner and to get everyone to mingle….in a unique way. 😉 We twisted the game a little by getting the finalists of this games to show off some of their dance moves! Sorry to have put some of you on the spot but come on, it was fun time wasn’t it? 😉
Simon even got a video of the whole dancing part of the night! What a show! 😛
We custom made some speech bubbles for the Night and here are some of the snapshots with the speech bubbles that night!
Thank you all again for making this first #ChurpOut a success, it turned out to be a lot more fun than we thought it would be. I guess we underestimated the energy you Churpers can bring to a meet up! We will definitely be doing more of these with the continuous support from you guys.<3

Imagine going to a university reunion. And all of your friends are doing great. Just great. One a lawyer, one a real state agent, one an invesment banker, and you.. well you’re doing great as well, just that, you only have a job in a video rental store. Part-time.
When all things go directionless, and there’s no more motivation in you, there’s only ONE thing that’s left to do;
FORGET EVERYTHING AND HAVE THE BEST NIGHT OF YOUR LIFE.
We’re pretty sure you have your fair share of life changing, awesome night outs that give you the chills just thinking about it, and we wanna hear about them! ALL OF THEM IF WE CAN!
As the summer of 1988 winds down, three friends on the verge of adulthood attend an out-of-control party in celebration of their last night of unbridled youth. Recent MIT grad Matt Franklin (Topher Grace) should be working for a Fortune 500 company and starting his upward climb to full-fledged yuppie-hood. Instead, the directionless 23-year-old confounds family and friends by taking a part-time job behind the counter of Suncoast Video.But Matt’s silent protest against maturity comes to a screeching halt once his unrequited high school crush, Tori Frederking (Teresa Palmer), walks into the store. When she invites him to an epic, end-of-summer party, Matt thinks he finally might have a chance with the girl of his dreams. With his cynical twin sister Wendy (Anna Faris) and best friend Barry (Dan Fogler), Matt embarks on a once-in-a-lifetime evening. From stealing a car to a marriage proposal to an indescribable, no-holds-barred dance-off, these friends share experiences that will change the course of their lives on one unforgettable night in the Go-Go ’80s.
If you’d like to join us for some good laugh and (maybe) help you decide whether or not you should’ve taken the plunge on the decision that has been hovering on your mind, join the screening contest and win a pair of tickets to Take me Home Tonight courtesy of Universal International Pictures that’s happening on::
