They already killed off Jean Grey in a older movie a number of years back: and the fans were not happy with that. So what did they do, bring Jean Grey back and kill her off a second time. If the fans are not happy the first time, it is very clear they will not be happy a second time.Dark Phoenix 5/10
Ugh, I was so disappointed in this film. Unlike a lot of people, I actually think Sophie Turner was good as Jean Grey but the story felt only half-written, you could tell that re-shoots had taken place, Jessica Chastain's much-lauded character was flat and two-dimensional and, without giving too much away, this was (once again) a story about Jean Grey in which Jean got almost no agency and was (once again) used by a less-powerful and less-impressive Big Bad, despite being such a powerful and dangerous creature herself. The characterisation was all over the place and clashed with previous characterisation from other films not to mention that it completely disregards the new timeline established in Days of Future Past. The effects were cool and the acting was good but other than that, this film was very bland.
I just watched this yesterday!! Such a good movie but i do agree with your comments about itIn the Mood for Love 8.5/10
It’s an emotive movie about love and betrayal. Two people become closer when they live next to each other and realize that their partners are having an extra-marital affair. It shows them falling in love and longing to love and to be loved, but never crossing the line -- even though they know about the affair of their spouses. I give it 8.5/10 because it’s a bit slow, you have to be “in the mood” for a slow-moving film to watch this movie. But I totally recommend it (although, I didn't like the ending, but I won't spoil it for you ), synopsis below.
In the Mood for Love is a 2000 Hong Kong romantic drama film written, produced, and directed by Wong Kar-wai. It tells the story of a man (played by Tony Leung) and a woman (Maggie Cheung) whose spouses have an affair together and who slowly develop feelings for each other.
Plus it reversed the male gaze and is feminist right? Hadley Freeman: why I owe it all to 1980s moviesDirty Dancing 8/10
It’s a truly corny movie but I’m a real sucker for this classic that became a cult movie. Besides, the movie is worth watching only for the Patrick Swayze’s last dance scene, he’s so sexy… I’m drooling.
Thanks for sharing the article! I agree! I’ve been combining my Asian films re-watch with these classics (Dirty Dancing, Ghostbusters I and II, Ghost, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Romancing the Stone, etc.).
