It is not a movie of great revelations, a behaved movie and not a bit disturbing, it is more a drama that follows a spirit that torments a family.
I would say that "more terrible than ghosts are people," the film is not intuitive to horror, after all has the elements thunder, rainy night, spells, emergencies, and another strange laugh in the background, a comedy that a horror.
I really like horror read more movies, but scary, exciting horror films and pure terror as the name suggests is to enlarge the ugly side of human nature, people get the essence, get the thinking, which is why I like Of horror films, already "The Nursery" is nothing but a comic movie without brilliance!

"The Girl Shaman" is far from being a spooky movie, it's a hard-to-believe movie even with a good cast. The movie is kind of sentimental, running away from a good ghost story. An annoying plot movie, highlighting the almost perfect interpretation of the influence of the past in the present. Sydney, unable to leave the face of her boyfriend, for endless illusions, all because of the recall, because of all the memories. read more To be more direct Sydney, you lost your boyfriend, to save your lover ...

I did not watch the first movie, on the other hand "The Way Home 2" surprised me, it's not a "Survivor Horror" movie either, the story is rich and the narrative perfect, cinematography also deserves highlights, everything looks so natural in the film Which is not thought to be either CGIs or Chroma key.
The director was very intelligent because he tells the end of the disaster, that is, the scourge of read more the end of the domestic zombie disaster film to show a new perspective, but also strive to plot, characters in emotional conflicts and special effects in the perfect presentation .

"De-single Bible" is one of the most creative and unpredictable films I've watched, comedy is clever, it's out of the obvious, a healthy competition of the protagonist made in good mood without that air of forced comedy or black comedy, in this narrative fight enters cosplayers Of Sailor Moon, Spider-Man fantasy and two guys who look more like two kids playing company boss. "De-single Bible" also has fun, colorful and very well-planned read more cinematography, the soundtrack frets on harmony but overall it's a fun, comical and not at all boring movie!

The "audition" was supposed to be one of the best Japanese horror movies I've ever seen, just not!
Ryo Ishibashi plays Shigeharu Aoyama, a lonely middle-aged man. After many years of being loyal to your deceased wife is the right time to start dating again. His friend Yasuhisa decides to create a false casting hearing, hoping his friend can find a new wife. Aoyama goes through countless wallets looking for women to read more audition, but as soon as she sees the beautiful image of Asami, he knows she's the only one. Everything seems perfect at first, but is Asami what it seems? "Hearing" is not as violent and outrageous as "Fudoh" or "Ichi the Killer," but it certainly offers some of the most distressing Scenes of violence ever captured on screen. The film is atmospheric and artistic, so if you're just looking for gore and violence avoid it. Overall just another disturbing movie for some more sensitive.

This movie gave me mixed feelings. It could have been great but it felt very weak.

At first liked the story but it isn't a powerfull one, I wish it had more guts and feeling to it, this could have been a great movie, but the missed some essential keys to make this movie better. First they should focus on one or two major topics, instead they threw in some not-essential stuff read more which made the movie go haywire, (I can't tell you because it would spoil the movie). Because of these extra's the acting wasn't too great either.
However I did feel along with the main actor, I could feel the despair and at a point he made me almost pull my hair out from frustration, so he saved this movie for me.
Also they could have send a very powerfull message about the media, how they use it to trick people and we should not believe all the news, but they failed to deliver that which is a shame.

Watch this if you like movies about the media and a good main lead.
Skip this if you want a in-depth movie with action, romance and if you don't like blood.

Why didn't I watch this sooner?

Do not be deceived by the poster. I really thought it was one mediocre of a movie until I finally gave it a go. The acting was good and so was the story. Like it's title, it kept getting better as the movie progressed. The full circle of the story was heartbreaking, but there is an intangible satisfaction to it.

(Some parents tell their children they hit them because they love them. Some children get this the wrong way. One child grew up believing that being hit is being loved, and to love is to be beaten, hammered and treated like trash. He thinks pain is pleasure and pleasure can only be achieved with pain. We call it the wrong kind of love, but he thinks it's the most beautiful kind of read more love that the world just misunderstands.)

I watched this because China banned its release. I was curious and the movie proved worthy of that curiosity. It wasn't great, but it was one undeniably beautiful movie. I love the dialogues. Sometimes the lines are rather poetic. The actors could even tell more of the story even with no words at all. The film seemed to glorify the simplicity of its plot with good writing and actors.

Have an open mind upon watching this film, but don't get too attached. It's just a film after all.

A film that mixes reality and fantasy in history. Sometimes this is the best way to be pleasantly surprised or disappointed. In this case, I was pleasantly surprised. The story is solid, with elements of comedy, drama and love that work. A cohesive story that is never below, encompassing themes of self-esteem, family ties, fantasy and lossy love. The rhythm is uniform and enough to draw attention to the story and its read more characters. No hassle, "Didi's Dreams" is great. Dee Hsu does an excellent job as a lead actor and definitely has a great comedic time. When it's time for the dramatic scenes, she really knows how to change the environment as well as for the movie's serious moments. There are elements of science fiction that give fantasy and definitely dream. The cinematography for the non-sci-fi scenes was very good, work done well by the way. This is easily one of the most entertaining movies I've seen and pleasantly surprised by the end of the movie. it's worth watching.

Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson and Aikido sensation Steven Seagal appear in China Salesman, an action film written and directed by Tan Bing that does not avenge. Habitual dialogues, action clichés, minimalist narrative, everything is bad, even cinematography.
The story is almost pure comedy, an action movie based on 2 rival telecommunications companies that have a few bids to work in Africa! Oh really!?

Despite a weak history, the narrative is very good, a dramatic film to some extent with the charisma of the cast, crucial to give a good index of resourcefulness in the film. The elements that make up the film are good, there are no surprises or twists of great prominence, "The Trap" is a real good everyday movie of arguments but not pleasantly good enough.

There was no emotion!
"Jane" has a complex and surreal narrative style that presents a melodrama of social problems.
The story begins with So-hyeon, who begins to write a letter that is presented in the form of narration, about the missing boyfriend Jung-ho, who is waiting in a motel. As soon as she realizes that he is not coming back, she cuts her wrists in the bathtub, but before she is dead, read more Jane, a transvestite, enters the room also looking for Jung-ho and the save.
With a story that moves in circles and the surrealism between reality and fantasy are subtle, but sinning in execution, good idea, bad presentation.
The film has strong connotations for the indie, which is implemented by the dreamer, subtle, but a relatively fast pace and the few dialogues.
The acting and cast are good, Lee Min-ji-I portraying the ambiguous but subtle character of So-hyeon. "Jane" has its flaws, but it's pretty good to be on average, that movie in the range.

One of the most impressive stories.
The film takes place in the 1990s in Yunnan city, is premised on two single-parent families and six individuals, and speaks under social changes, the hero who is born by chance, pain, loss, obscure passions. Humble people who crave "success", trying to change their classes and identities.
The narrative and the story are so good that they draw attention from beginning to end, "Youth Dinner" is read more an expressive film, the cinematography of the air of grace with rich and elaborate external scenes to give naturalness to the scenes, as well as the soundtrack Comes as an adjuvant to highlight the dramatic feeling that the film wants to present. Excellent recommendation!

This film was heartbreaking as much as a reality check to all the sexual abuse cases that happen around the world. Huge trigger warnings if people do decide to watch this film. The beginning of the film started as two working class parents struggling to make ends meet (electricity bills, borrowing money, donations from other families) and Hope, a young girl with copious amounts of enthusiasm - for school and life. Fast read more forward to an hour of the film, where Hope talks to her therapist about how she understands why her grandmother used to talk about death so openly. Hope is depressed and recovering from her gruesome trauma while she is triggered by middle-aged men including her dad. Her dad looks at online forums on how to talk to a child who has experienced trauma.

Overall, it was a lovely film. The film shows the daily reality portrayal of dealing with post-trauma and how to rebuild life once again, or "go back to how things were" as Hope says.

I've got mixed feeling about this one. Though it wasn't a bad movie, it seemed like it lucked of something. Okay, first things first: the movie had a comedy element that was excellent, though it was too "manga" like, but in the end it worked. The love story was okay and cute as well. The performances were great and the casting was perfect for their characters, especially the leading man. Now, the read more whole thing was well executed, however, it kind of felt like it was dragging on and on and the second half onward was bleak and slightly boring. Maybe that's because the love story lucked some intensity. So, overall, 5 out of 10.
