Crop And Save
Because the current chinese government is a pure dictatorship, it won't allow anyone to make any films exposing the dark side of the government. Therefore, the movies listed here will never be made in mainland China.
I hope that the chinese communist government will be overthrown by the people very soon! So directors will have the freedom to make good films just like these films.
Teen Beach 2 (2015)
Garrett Clayton is too funny, he should have a gay partner in the film.
the story line is not too strong, but Garrett Clayton made this film a total 8.
i just enjoy watching him acting so gay in the film, it was just crazily funny. he fits this role so perfectly. it is too funny to see him acting all silly and cute.
his lines were too funny, he performed very well. i don't know if the director made him doing that, or he thought it himself, i think that this film was funnier than teen beach movie.
and Garrett Clayton is just so good looking to look at.
but his role just seems so gay that they should have given him a boyfriend to play with in this film, that girlfriend relationship obviously doesn't work.
i would watch teen beach 3 if he is in it again.
i am shocked by this racist practice, not based on a true story!
when I saw the film, I thought that it was just another average caucasian film, it has so many white characters in it which is so typical for most Hollywood films.
the last memorable mostly Asian film that i saw was : Joy Luck Club, which was so long ago.
often times, people say that Hollywood doesn't have many films that are suitable for Asian American actors, because most roles are for white people.
there are hardly any Asian children in the USA that have dreams of becoming big actors, because they never see any famous big Asian actors as their role models.
when i saw the film, i only knew that it was based on "a true story". i thought that it was some smart white students from mit who did it. I just found out that this film was actually based on some real Asian students from MIT.
it could be a good positive film to represent Asian people in the USA. i am shocked that i was fooled by this so-called "true story" which wasn't true at all.
this film could be one of the few rare films that actually have plenty of roles for Asian American actors. the producers and director chose to discriminate against Asian American actors, did the wrong thing by hiring white actors. no matter how they explain it, what they did is totally racist. and the protagonist wasn't even a US citizen, he is a foreigner.
why do Hollywood hire foreigners who have to fake US accent when there are plenty of Asian American actors who speak perfect English.
black people boycotted 2016 Oscar because it has no black nominations. some Asian American actors might have won an Oscar if they were given the chance to play a role in this film.
weak storyline, this film is over-rated.
i was expecting to see an exciting sci-fi film which will keep you watching till the end due to its high rating, but it was a disappointment.
it has several problems in no particular order.
1. the robot's design is too simple and ugly. it was basically a square with a computer screen in it. if people can send spaceship beyond the moon, shouldn't the robots have more functions? this ugly robot doesn't even have two hands. it can't really do anything other than talking.
2. the robot's voice sounds just like matt damon. i thought that they want to save money, so they just used the same actor. it made the film sounded cheap.
3. cooper the character didn't do anything scientific, all of sudden, he was flying a spaceship into the deep space? that didn't make sense.
4. lack of asians. in 2016, black people are protesting lack of "diversity" in Oscar, this film didn't have any Asian faces in it. there are more Asian scientists than blacks . this film failed to hire Asian actors.
Big Story in a Small City (2006)
My first Armenian film, very funny.
yea,a great film, and I am the first one who is writing a review.
I got it from a local library. the DVD cover didn't look hot and sexy, but it is a film from Armenia, and it is a comedy. that is quite unique, I am glad that I checked out this DVD. I am rating it a 9, I think that the current rating 6.6 is too low.
I enjoy watching foreign films, because I can see their regular life, their environment, culture, etc. omg, I have never seen any Armenian film before. i don't even know that they make films before this. now i wonder how many countries in this world actually make films for their own people?
I have met Armenian immigrants, they look just like the other white people. the real Armenian people obviously look different than the white people in the USA, the way they dress, the way they act, etc.
this film is very funny. It is about dead people, but it is not a sad or scary film at all. those actors exaggerated their act so you can feel funny, i wonder if they are professional actors or just amateurs.
they fast forward their street scenes, I wish that they could have showed the Armenian city life in regular speed, so foreigners like me can see that city moment that they captured.
this is a well-made comedy. I wonder if someone from Hollywood can make an US version of it in the future.
The Maze Runner (2014)
finally, an Asian male actor was in a leading role!
Asians have been living in the USA since 1800's, but there is very few Asian males in any leading roles in any of the Hollywood films. most of the time, they were hired for comical effects, or as gongfu fighters, etc.
for that reason alone, i gave this film a 10. when the film first started, I thought that it was just another film about black and white people, I thought that the black actor will be the leader throughout the film. I was surprised that Lee Kihong (koreans are like Chinese, they put last name first.) was acting in most part of the film.
although i have to say that the storyline may appear illogical in some areas, it is just very entertaining. I truly enjoyed it. It is rare that this film gave me an out of this world experience. i can't wait to see part two.
Maybe someday someone will make a TV series for this film, who knows. It is kind of similar to the TV show - lost.
bad DVD cover, very emotional top gay film.
The DVD cover looked really uninteresting and ugly. i thought that it was just another gay film with some hot almost naked guys talking and doing something funny. I was planning to watch it in two nights, but once I started, I can't stop.
It feels as if those two boys were really in love. I wasn't sure if Tanner Cohen was really gay, but he looked like that he was really enjoying gay sex. hehe. both of them seemed to be good actors, they should do more films. they are totally talented.
Then the ending is a little bit sad. I guess that most of viewers probably want to scream at Tanner for making such a bad decision. And at the end, probably everyone wishes that they can really following this gay boy's online account. Too bad, it is only a film. This story is not real.
The sex scenes were a little too graphic for regular non-gay audiences. And the kissing at different places seem to be a little too much as if to fill the time for this film. If the director changed those two parts, I am sure that it could be an even better film just like the brokeback mountain.
scary, but simple. lack of diversity.
i didn't read the DVD cover before i watched the film. it is a scary film to be watched at night time, that is for sure.
i can't guess what it is all about, it gave me lots of goose bumps while watching it. when the film ended, i realized how simple the story line is. but it kept me in my seat until the end, it piqued my interest.
i enjoy watching it.
on the other hand, this film once again like other Hollywood films, it has no Asian characters. the only one in it was a naked "Japanese" woman, who can't even speak Japanese. actually, she didn't speak any common Asian language at all, i think that she just said whatever to make it sounded like Japanese.
it is supposed to happen in a college, but it has no Asian students in it. now these days, when you go to any colleges in the USA, you are bound to see a few asians. this film only has plenty of white people. when was the last time, you see two hot Asian couples having sex in a Hollywood film, etc?
Shanghai Calling (2012)
refreshing story, but not so exciting to watch, a few cliché lame jokes.
I think that there is only one similar film "outsourced" which was made a few years ago. So this story is very unique. It also has some semi- famous actors in it, but the story is not exciting. It is almost predictable.
And there are a few obvious problems in it. When it was shot in the streets of shanghai, it was so apparent that lots of people were watching while it was filmed. It instantly makes the audiences realizing that they are watching a fake film.
Second, the restaurant scene was so awkward, not funny at all. Because when he stood up, you can see that the rest of the tables were almost empty. Some of the jokes are just plain simple cliché and not funny.
There are plenty of expatriates living in Shanghai or other cities in China, I think that maybe one of them can write a real story. And the male protagonist doesn't even have any Chinese blood in him.
Born Rich (2003)
good intention, a little superficial, but well done!
I got this VHS tape (HBO demo-tape for Emmy consideration, air date: October 27th, 2003) from a yard sale, i don't remember watching it. As I was watching it, I sort of remembered that I have seen it before, I just didn't remember much about it.
While I was almost finished watching it, my 19-years-old VCR (made in November of 1995) stopped working! tragically, it doesn't make sense for me to buy a new one just to watch a few remaining VHS tapes that i still have. how ironic is that if this happened to one of those rich people in this show, i am sure that they will go buy a new vcr just to finish watching this tape. good thing, I found this on youtube, so I was able to finish watching it.
i didn't know that those kind of people exited until I watched this show. Sure, there are rich people, but i didn't know that there are children who are already super rich, who don't have to worry about money since day one.
Overall, this is a good show, but I felt that it was a little superficial. Also, Jamie Johnson didn't spend much time talking about himself. They could have talked a little bit more, and tell us more about their lives, such as if they have personal assistants, do they ever have to spend time cleaning their own rooms, buying groceries, just what they do as rich people everyday.
I enjoyed it.
Mai wei (2011)
sort of epic film with predictable results.
from the beginning of the film, it is already predictable that the main protagonists will not die. so no matter what he goes through, you already knew the end result.
then is it really possible for a female to use a gun to shoot down a warplane? i am not an expert, but it seems too unreal. then it seems that the only solution for her exit is to die. otherwise, her existence will interfere with the progress of the film.
It seems like an epic film with quite a few predictable story lines. these kind of things simply don't happen in real life. It didn't make me feel emotional.
