This movie is a BLAST. If you're an action movie fan you'll recognize all the beats, and sink your teeth into the theatricality of its chaos. The first one is serviceable but a bore in comparison, with a tone that's way too grounded. You'd be all right in skipping it for this one, there's a flashback sequence to catch you up.

excellent!

one day i want to go to either Burbank Town Center 6 or Burbank Town Center 8, multiplex theaters that play these big international movies.

recently, past month, i watched Takashi Miike's Crows Zero and appreciated Miike all over again. he has a recent that was a big hit, as the trailer mentions it was his 100th movie



Headshot is a well-made action movie from Indonesia so i need to see that asap



and i clearly need to see The Villianess (sword fight on motorcycles at 1:10)

During their reunion, various truths are revealed. The script is based on a stage play Kore-eda wrote nearly fifteen years ago, but never produced.

[...]

His “Like Father, Like Son” was acquired for remake by Steven Spielberg

China’s Most Expensive Movie is an Epic Flop

The fantasy movie, which supposedly led a trilogy, spent 750 million yuan ($112 million) in its production that lasted for six years.

Unfortunately, it only earned 49.05 million yuan ($7.3 million) on its opening weekend.

As a result, producers Alibaba Pictures, Zhenjian Film Studio and Ningxia Film Group decided to pull the movie from cinemas on Sunday and offered their “deepest apologies to viewers who did not get a chance to watch the film,” the South China Morning Post noted.

“This decision was made not only because of the bad box office. We plan to make some changes to the film and release it again,” a Zhenjian Film representative told Sina News.
