Movie Craze in August
Am on a movie craze this month, watched several shows that caught my attention and most of them worth having great reviews ! :-)
Watched "Salt", who is Salt actually? If twisty-turny action-thrillers starring Angelina Jolie are your cup of tea, then you are in luck for that's exactly what this movie is all about.
From start to finish, Salt is the very definition of a solid popcorn movie - fast, exciting, suspenseful, and most important, smart.
Go catch Angelina Jolie in action! As Agent Salt.
Snapped some cover pictures of latest magazines featuring Angelina Jolie.
"The Last Airbender" is a story about a world that has lost its balance and the saga of those attempting to gain absolute power and others whose goal is to rebalance it. I would say that this movie is probably one of the most spiritually minded blockbusters of the year with aspects of tai chi, harmony, astral planes and meditation practiced throughout the film. I don’t know if it will get more kids into the yoga studios but i am encouraged that there is a big budget flick that put these kinds of ideals at the forefront.
If you could blend awkward relationships, quirky humor and upbeat guitar-and-fiddle music with stunning shots of urban Taiwan, you will get a taste of what Au Revoir Taipei (一頁台北) is all about. This movie is thoroughly entertaining and although it's nominally a love story, the movie never takes itself too seriously.
Love in disguise (恋爱通告) is Wang Leehom’s 王力宏first attempt at directing a movie. Prior to this movie direction, his only experience is directing his own music videos, which are of a totally different league and agenda as this rom-com. And though his experience in the field of acting is rather bare, he has actually succeeded in delivering this movie. The main plot in this movie is probably somewhat familiar. It's a star’s over-glamorised life. As confessed by 王力宏 himself, he got the idea from observations and his own experience in the entertainment industry. So as boy meets girl, boy is confused with how he feels and then finally realizes that he is in love… so on and so forth, are also presented in a relatively new manner.
