I really can't believe BP doing so well in US Domestic box office, with 690 million and still growing. For me it just a simple movie, I didn't see any special there....

I also find it surprising it did so well in the box office.

Maybe we have been overdosed by so many of these superheroes flicks, getting numb.

2018, 2019... we'll get deadpool2, venom, antman+wasp, aquaman...

Then more spiderman, more wonder woman, more x-men, more avengers... and a new hellboy!

The world loves superheroes... becos they dun exist. biggrin.gif

Angels Wear White (2017)
Original title-Jia nian hua.
Country- Mainland China.Language: Mandarin with English subtitles.
Writer/director: Vivian Qu.
Cinematographer: Benoit Dervaux.
Cast: Wen Qi, Zhou Meijun, Shi Ke.

Based on a true story.
The film opens with a teenager gazing up at a massive statue
of Marilyn Monroe with its famous exposed undergarments in
white high heeled sandals.
The statue is a symptom of a corrupt and sexist society.

She is Mia(Vicky Chen) an undocumented migrant, works as a cleaner
at a small motel in a seaside resort on the island province of Hainan.
Sometimes she covers the reception desk for her colleague,
Lily (Peng Jing) who was out with her boyfriend that night.

On one such night, she checks-in a middle-aged man (Cao Yunqing)
who turns out to be a low-level police commissioner with two
schoolgirls Wen (Zhou Meijun) and Xin (Jiang Xinyue). They check into
separate rooms.

While manning the surveillance cameras, she watches him forced his way
into their room, over their objections.
And she takes a recording of the screen, capturing the moment through
her cell phone.

When both parents discover what took place and bring them
to a clinic where an examination reveals that they have been raped.
Outside the clinic room, one of the two 12-year-old victims tells her
that their hymen has been broken, she asks, “What’s a hymen?”

A local attorney (Shi Ke), who specializes in pursuing child traffickers,
is assigned to the case. And she is the only character who might be able
to bring the police chief to justice.

A powerful performance from Vicky Chen and Zhou.
The director cast on a society where the only thing worse than being
poor is being female.

operation red sea is a chinese war action movie directed by dante lam (operation mekong).

this 2 1/4 hr movie is action packed - with snipers, drones, tanks, stinger missiles.

more action than black hawk down! biggrin.gif

the story is loosely based on a true 2015 incident in yemen.

actors are not well known to me, but with zhang hanyu and simon yam as guest stars.

it is the highest grossing china fim of 2018 and 2nd highest all time after wolf warrior 2.

if u like operation mekong and wolf warrior2, u will like this one. 4/5.

i watched it with chinese subs; eng subs version not available yet, i think.

red sparrow is a pretty good spy thriller, set in the cold war era.

stars jennifer lawrence, joel edgerton, jeremy irons.

lawrence is said to have been paid $20 million for this movie.

the ending was a bit of a clever surprise twist. 3/5.

fahrenheit 451 is a dystopian movie based on a 1953 novel.

starring michael jordan and micheal shannon.

not the best syfy thriller, it is more of a syfy drama, little action.

it reminds me of equilibrium 2002 (christian bale, sean bean).

if u liked equilibrium, u probably want to watch fahrenheit 451. 2.5/5.

shuttle life 2017 is a malaysian drama film.

yes, filmed in pudu, kl.

a story about a poor family struck by a tragedy, the film highlights the hard realities of the poor in the urban sprawl.

this film won many awards in asian film festivals for young talent.

stars jack tan, sylvia chang (taiwanese veteran actress).

the ending is a bit of a let down but i suppose it is meant to leave the viewers to spare a thought for the hard lives of some.

pure drama but never a dull moment; u can immediately connect with some of the issues raised in the movie. 3.5/5.
