As I was trying to explain to my friend’s brother about Bruce Willis, Die Hard and what else (as Taiwanese people are not very familiar with Hollywood stuff), he told me he had in fact saw the last one of the serie. He told me about the scene where the car flies into a helicopter… I didn’t really remember the scene but I bet it must have been something really special,with all the special effects a movie can have now. I then looked at Bruce Willis circa Die Hard 2 and wondered if nowadays young people can appreciate pre-Matrix action movies. Can you?
Moi: I've watched an excellent movie tonight... It surprised me, because I never thought it would turn out like that. It's a 2010 chinese movie called "Let the bullets fly" which features an intense psychological duel between the two protagonists trying to outwit each other.
I made the mistake to watch Death Bell 2, alone in my room yesterday….
I remember how the first one surprised me more than scared me, because I only expected a simple asian horror movie (with its ghost) and got more like a slasher/thriller movie.
I was kinda excited about the background story and how the plot would unfold in the part. 2. But even if it started well, it fell flat so fast… There is basically no characters development and about 1h in the movie, we already know who’s the killer and what led to his actions… There is still a small twist at the end, but still…
They also got rid of the puzzle part so it’s just a lot of killing happening in 30mn. Yeah only 30 mn because you need to use some time to set up things at the beginning of a movie, right? And in the last 20mn almost nothing happens (as you already know who’s the killer).
What was supposed to scare me to death pretty much left me with the blank expression Ji-Yeon sports the whole movie.
- with Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Anniston etc…
Yesterday I went to watch Horrible Bosses. It was a free event for me, with complimentary drinks and hot dog, but what really happened is that we “crashed” a secretary event.
“Very appropriate”, I thought.
I wasn’t especially looking forward to it, I saw the trailer, I thought it was funny but not hilarious, and as you know, they always put the funniest parts in the trailers… I am not getting fooled anymore. Also as much as I love Charlie Day and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, I really don’t like Jason Bateman… I have seen some movies with him and I don’t understand his appeal… I don’t even find him funny.
Now onto the movie… It was nice, and the story actually made sense… It had its good moments, its good jokes, and its funny situations… But I think who we have to thank the most for the movie are the three horrible bosses. They simply stole the show. They were excellent. You can totally relate to the main characters and even if I thought their idea was completely crazy, it helped me put stuff in perspective. So a good movie overall
- With Andy Lau, Nicholas Tse, Fan Bingbing, Jackie Chan and WU JING!!!
With such a star studded cast how come this movie was so disappointing???? Maybe my expectations were too high, or maybe it is because my dear friend ruined the ending for me - Thanks Evelyn… I seriously don’t know. I felt there were almost no characters development (except Andy Lau) cause we had to introduce each of the character and give them some backstory… Wu Jing didn’t even fight that much * sniff sniff*… And Nicholas Tse makes a reallllly but reallly bad villain. Better stick to tough cop/ bad boy against his will.
Ahhhhhh…. I wish we could have more movies like this one… A perfect action movie. Car chase, jumping over buildings, group fight, super kung-fu skills etc… There was nothing wrong with this movie, besides you get not only Nicholas Tse, but also Shawn Yue. And Wu Jing as the bad guy… Excellent!
I mostly watched this movie for Edison Chen but he had such a small role… I don’t know why the main role went to Jay Chou… One thing I can say for sure now, is that he should stick to singing… I think he ruined the movie… Even if there wasn’t really a story to begin with.
- This movie has more to do with the background of Ip-Man and how he became who he is in the other two movies… It was nice but not up to par with the others. Funny that Louis Fan plays a role in all three of them.
A very interessant psychological thriller… At the beginning, you’re wondering when they intend to go with the storyline but there are some interesting twists… I really enjoyed it and the performances by the two main actors.
I didn’t have any expectations going to see this movie… But I left the theater sad… Sad about the state of movies nowadays… There is nothing bad about this movie but there’s nothing good as well… No story, no character developments, you don’t even know why Thor fell for the human, but you SURE know why she fell for him… I mean looook at that boooodyyyy!!
Actually Thor is a little like a drink… You take your “affirmative action” characters (yes we do have a black guy and EVEN an asian guy in Asgaard loooool), your power women that don’t take shit but are still romantic at the end, you mix everything with the help of Thor ridiculous hammer flying scenes and you sprinkle the top with a little humour (only at the beginning though). You end up with a nice drink, but it doesn’t really leave you any aftertaste…
I think they were in a hurry to wrap everything for the Avengers… In the previews, we’ve got Captain America and it doesn’t look better…
