Review : Our Times

Mon, 11/23/2015 - 6:51PM by Bended 0 Comments -

Synopsis : The movie takes us on a 20 year journey through through the life of the main character, Lin Zhen Xin. Seen mostly as a
flashback to how her life wound up where it is, we follow Zhen Xin back to her senior high school year and watch as she teams up
with Xu Tai Yu, a notorious school gangster, to break apart the love between rivals Ou-yang Fei Fan and Tao Min min.

Our Times  (2015)

What I like : The acting and filming is really good, you will really be convinced that you are going back 20 years in time to Lin
Zhen Xin's high school life, the settings, the things people do back then, how they talk etc. I think it truly and fully deserve
all the award nomination in the Golden Horse Award (Best Director, Best Lead Actress and Best Original Film Song Categories).

In fact, not only the song, Xiao Xing Yun, is extremely suitable for the film, the song was cued very appropriately in the film at
the very best moment to induce emotion. I dont think any movies I have watched so far has done it as well as them.

Furthermore, I really love how the bits and pieces of the movie which really felt unimportant treaded together to make sense! It
is so good it makes me tingle!

What I dislike : Although the treading of the story is really nice, the overall storyline is rather predictable and it feels like
another typical Taiwan Drama, there is little to no unique or special element in this film. Also, I feel that the story is too
fantasy-like and has little reality feel to it. All these really kills the film, BAD!

In addition, the Older/present-time version of the actor sucks! Not their acting, no. Their looks just don't match up and that is
just a huge turn-off for me.

Remark/Verdict : It is funny how people around me are talking about how much they tear and cry because of the film. I really do
not feel that this movie is worth any tears. There are so much better romance film out there that can easily replace this. Low
Matinee for this film.

Rating Sytem :
Better Than Sex - 5 or more Stars
Full Price - 4 Stars
Matinee - 3 Stars
Rental - 2 stars
Some Old Bullshit! - 1 star or lower.

Review : Guardians of the Galaxy

Sun, 08/03/2014 - 8:08PM by Bended 0 Comments -

Synopsis : After stealing a mysterious orb in the far reaches of outer space, human Peter Quill is now the main target of a manhunt led by the villain known as Ronan the Accuser. To help fight Ronan and his team and save the galaxy from his power, Quill creates a team known as the "Guardians of the Galaxy" to save the world. Written by James Hake

Guardians.of.the.Galaxy</p>

REVIEW : To start off, I want to make it clear that I have no knowledge of how "Guardians of the Galaxy" is like in comics, I have no knowledge of any of these characters here.

As most of you would know, "Guardians of the Galaxy", isn't a really popular comics series to begin with, their powers are not as strong in comparison to Iron Man, Thor, or any other main stream characters. So focusing on the action alone like most of the Marvel films might result a terrible failure for "Guardians of the Galaxy".

However, that is not the case. The director really did a great job in combining the comedy and the action aspect of the together. I have quite a high expectation on Marvel Movies and this I believe just surpass my expectation of the film. I really without a doubt enjoy every moment of this film. Its so rare to see that comedy and action blend with each other so extremely well.

To be extremely honest, there isn't really a thing i dislike about this film. I just like it so much, i really enjoyed it. I would say that this film might be better than Avengers in my opinion. If you guys really want me to be picky about it I would say that Bautista felt a little out of place at times in the film but maybe its because I am so used to him in WWE.

<p>Not all will agree with me but i will give "Guardians of the Galaxy" BETTER THAN SEX!!
