I Saw the Devil (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X  
A secret agent exacts revenge on a serial killer through a series of captures and releases. (141 mins.)
Director: Kim Jee-woon
“ A korean film starring Byung-hun Lee (a bittersweet life) and Min-sik Choi (old boy).
The movie is a cat and mice chase between two men searching to destroy each others spirit along with beautiful shot scenes and raw violence.
This may sound blunt and one dimensional , but I cannot reveal more information, as the movie itself will carry you through the journey of revenge and retribution :)

Mamá (2008 Short Film)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
A young girl wakes up and tells her sister that their mother has returned home. (3 mins.)
Director: Andy Muschietti
“ With the release of mama (2013) with excecutive producer guillermo del toro, known for "the devil backbone" , "Pan's labyrinth" and "The orphanage".
"Mama 2013" has got quite a bit of attention.
The movie was hyped for some time but the movie proved to be a mediocre movie with some elements of interesting to it.

Now where did this movie (mama 2013) come from?
The movie mama 2013 was inspired by the short movie mama (2008 short film)
roughly 3 minutes long but do not be fooled, these three minutes will leave you with a staggering breathe and some of the best tension cutting, claustrofobic experiences you will ever experience.

Story
Watch these 3 minutes, they will tell you the story :3

Note :
Not for the faint hearted
Watch the movie a couple more times, so you can enjoy every aspect (cuts/music/technique etc) ” - zhengrong1993

Secret (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X  
Ye Xiang Lun, a talented piano player is a new student at the prestigious Tamkang School. On his first day, he meets Lu Xiao Yu, a pretty girl playing a mysterious piece of music. (101 mins.)
Director: Jay Chou
“ Bu neng shuo de mi mi A.K.A. " The Secret "

This is the director debut for singer/actor jay chou,
Jay chou wrote and directed the story himself, he even played the lead character and well what can we expect?

At first I thought this would be a mediocre movie about a guy who finds love through the help of music and the passion of music, but what seems normal at first becomes pleasantly weird later.
For the people who love musicality (heavily piano based) , I would recommend this movie. It brings some mysterie, some musicality and some romance.

A good movie to watch.
Somewhat above mediocre and a nice director/writer debut for singer/actor jay chou.



Note :
I especially love the piano battle scene ” - zhengrong1993

Full Metal Jacket (1987)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.3/10 X  
A pragmatic U.S. Marine observes the dehumanizing effects the Vietnam War has on his fellow recruits from their brutal boot camp training to the bloody street fighting in Hue. (116 mins.)
Director: Stanley Kubrick
“ Full Metal Jacket, Oh how I love thy.

Full Metal Jacket is the story about a group of men who are recruited and trained to be hardboiled mean machine killing marines,
Those who succeed in becoming one of the marines are sent away to vietnam to kill the enemy and bring peace (that's how some see it).
The movie will take you on a journey in which innocent boys are transformed into blood bathed men.
"We are now marines who will ask for seconds when we have eaten our own guts".


The humanity in this movie is a central theme, not the war itself, the war is just a pivot to portray the morality of good and evil. (in my opinion)



Note :
The marine training camp scene is one in a million
enjoy :) ” - zhengrong1993

Ip Man (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.1/10 X  
During the Japanese invasion of 1937, when a wealthy martial artist is forced to leave his home and work to support his family, he reluctantly agrees to train others in the art of Wing Chun for self-defense. (106 mins.)
Director: Wilson Yip
“ A kungfu movie about the grandmaster Yip man (Also known as the master of bruce lee).
Donnie Yen (known for : Blade II, Dragon Tiger Gate, Iron Monkey etc)as Yip Man.

Yip man follows the grandmaster Yip man in the 1930's to the Japanese Occupation, which leads to the climax of the movie.

Beautifully shot fighting scenes, which will let you sit on the edge of the seat, spectaculair camera and sound usage for maximum grasp of the seriousness and artistic fighting experience.
Kungfu fans will be blown away by only the fighting scenes but there is more to Yip Man than that, the story is a good conductor for the fighting and the fighting is the diamond on the ring.




Note :
The camera work/sound/choreography etc are all excellent and a sight to behold. ” - zhengrong1993
