Re: The One and Only Asian movies reviews, comments, news, and appreciation thread

I suspect the latter possibility is true. As you've noted, this is a case of Cantonese versus Mandarin pronunciation. For anyone who's interested, check out the ways in which the surname is...

Re: Do you like movies with no recognizable stars?

I'm always up for a good Alien clone so Sputnik sounds like it's up my alley.

I already have Radius on my to-watch list. I'm always appreciative of Canadian content that ditches the self-serious...

Re: Do you like movies with no recognizable stars?

That's a really good point. The guy works in a department that I don't normally have contact with so I'll drop him an e-mail asking him about TFA...if I have nothing better to do.

Do you like movies with no recognizable stars?

I was on a video chat at work the other day where a number of us joined in early. While we were shooting the breeze, the subject of movies came up, and one guy said that he could only watch movies...

Re: Possessor (2020, D: B. Cronenberg) S: A. Riseborough, C. Abbott, S. Bean, JJ Leigh

Yes, 103 minutes. If it's edited, I'm pretty sure it won't haveChristopher Abbott spying on the British couple and seeing the man walk around with an erection. My guess is that the brief shot of Sean...

Re: Eddie Van Halen dies at 65

I'm absolutely floored. Thoughts and prayers for his friends, family, and fans. The man defined what a legend should be.

Re: The One and Only Asian movies reviews, comments, news, and appreciation thread

That confusion about name order you mentioned is in full effect. I've read at least two reviews of this doc where the writers--bless them--were trying their best with Wu's name but didn't realize it...

Re: Last Movie You Watched Thread

It took me a long time to come around to the idea that the John Carpenter film was better than the 1951 adaptation. Even though I now lean towards the 1982 movie, I still have a lot of affection for...

^Get the Hell Out was also my first TIFF movie this year. (Actually, it was first TIFF screening ever.)

Re: Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula (2020)

Don't forget Home Alone. I'm sure there's a decent short film to be made about little kids fighting zombies, but I just didn't need to see that sort of thing in this movie.

Re: Olympus has Fallen (2013) -- D: Fuqua, S: Butler, Freeman, Eckhart -- Reviews Thread

Re: Olympus has Fallen (2013) -- D: Fuqua, S: Butler, Freeman, Eckhart -- Reviews Thread

I guess I'm just a tad late to the party.

My vote was 'Good, not great'. I had only seen three other Fuqua films previously (The Replacement Killers, Shooter, and The Magnificent Seven) and have...
