Okay but not that great
This paces of this movie is way too slow. The lighting is too dim all the time; too many night scenes and rainy night scenes. The leading male actor is so overacting to pretend that he is a geek and a loner. When her ex beat her so viciously, keeps hitting and slapping her non-stop, yet her face still looks perfect without any bruise, no swollen or puffy bluish purple wounds, her lips still looks perfect, no blood at all. The elevator scene of the movie theater is outrageous impossible without any logic. The screenplay is full of loopholes. This is a very slow, without energy thriller.

Yurusarezaru mono

What's wrong with these Japanese and Korean movie makers?
We have already seen lot of Spaghetti Western made by the Italian movie makers. It had not only fortunately enough created several great imitated American Western movies, but also created several famous actors, such as Clint Eastwood, who later became an Oscar Winning director, made the original Unforgiven in 1992. But unfortunately, this Japanese adaptation from it was such a weird scripted Udon or Ramen Western with a very bad screenplay and a very weird historical background. It's almost as absurd and unwatchable like the Korean Kimchi western, The Good the Bad the Weird (2008). Both were made for the morons to kill the time, I, for one, would only stick to the original to avoid brain damage.

Da yue zai dong ji

A pretty good romance soiled by Wallace Huo
Who took too many acting contracts that had caused both of his physical and mental conditions deteriorated so much. His physical condition in this movie was so bad that we could almost see and feel how bone-tired he was. He couldn't even open his eyes, acted like a walking-stiff zombie. There's nothing we could fetch out of his performance in this movie. No passion, no energy, just sleepwalking through the whole movie. This movie was luckily saved by the lovely and talented leading actress, Sichun Ma, who single-handedly kept the movie going and maintain its watch worthiness. After this movie, my wife and me both had predicted that Huo's career would be crashed and burnt. He'd lose all the acting contracts in China. Yet we also predicted that Ms. Ma's acting career would be unlimited and successful after her great performance in this movie.

Kind Hearts and Coronets

There's a copycat out-there later in America in the late 90s
I think this movie was later secretly copied and adapted by Donald Westlake, who used it as the structure and storyline to write the novel, "The Ax". The only difference between these two were just the background of the two protagonists. This movie was based on the novel written by Roy Horniman. The eliminations of the inheritance candidates and the job competitors were almost the same.

Enthusiastic Sinners

A light porn deguised as an artistic film
I often thought those movies with sexual scenes usually are not good movies, nor those sexual scenes usually are actually necessary related to the storyline or scenarios. Asking actors and actresses to perform love-making acts in front of the crew is also not humanly decent.

If you like to watch the fornication scene after scene in this movie, why not just go to those porn websites to watch directly? Why need to disguise it as an artistic movie. Just because there are some philosophic dialog between the man and woman, you are entitled to call this movie is different from those porn movies?

Quan min mu ji

A randomly mixed weird background and location setting
This film's setting is neither Chinese nor Western, nor Hong Kong or Taiwan. The dialogue is like a literal translation. The court, regardless it's not Hong Kong or China but more like a Hollywood product. The courtroom scenes are extremely ridiculous and hilarious.

However, the tension of the whole drama is still quite strong. If the original is an US or European film, and then was adapted and reproduced into a Hong Kong film, it will be quite like "Infernal Affairs".

Anyway, no matter how you think it's a great thriller or not, you must not apply it to the current CCP legal system. Why? There would be no legal system like what we've seen in this farcical courtroom drama that could only exist in fantasy, a big joke!


Fantastic movie in the deadly years of the Pendamic!
The leading young female is as cute as all lovely teenage girls should be. She's extremely talented too.

All the supporting roles also so played impeccably good. The father, mother and her brother roles were so greatly performed by three amazing actors.

The only weak one is the music teacher, a role played extremely over the top exaggerated. The way to teach how to sing was also quite wrong by demanding her to scream with her head off. That definitely would hurt her vocal cord.

Other than this small flaw, the songs sang by her were absolutely angelic and touching.

This is the movie that we really need among and out of those stupid CGI crapped superhero or disgusting horror movies.

Highly recommended!!

Kôhî jikô

Don't tell me this movie is so profound and
So poetically beautiful. As we sat through the whole movie awaiting some meaningful stories to happen, but at the end of it, NOTHING! NOTHING AT ALL! Just a purposeless, mindless camera kept shooting the young woman walking in the streets, in and out of the train stations, hanging laundry, making phone calls, on the trains...in close up or long range frames, with deadbeat conversations between or among the few actors. A completely helpless parents when they heard their daughter's mindless pregnancy and her decision to be a single parent. There's actually nothing to tell or something really meaningful worth telling.

If you think this movie is so deep and thoughtful, I strongly suggest that you try to watch the paint dry up, you might get even more out of it than getting something out of this pretentious but absolutely hollow movie; if you could so generously call it a movie.

On the Road

A complete failure to adapt a novel into a road movie
What a lame and pointless movie. I really don't understand why so many people believe that driving a car across America would change your life and make you become more mature to understand the meaning of your life. It doesn't, stupid. What you'd get from the so-called soul-searching road trip would be: adding more mileage to your car, spending lot of money to buy gas to fill up your car, eating a lot of junk food from the fast food chains, checking into fleabag motels, sleepy all the time during your unknown destination long drive, getting several moving violation tickets from the Highway Patrol cops, getting a flat tire maybe not just once, getting numb and aching knees and lower back, pain in the neck, maybe result with constipation every couple of days, driving at night without seeing any motel in sight, feeling hungry suddenly but couldn't find any diner or fast food joint within 200 or 300 miles, constantly getting off your car to pee or take a dump along the deserted road, watching the gas very low warning and seeing the needle drop to the lowest left, constantly suddenly aware that you've fallen sleep until the abrupt swerve of your car that almost crash your car, feeling so estranged when driving into a big city and have to stop at so many traffic lights...these would be your only experience repeatedly in a cycle when you are on a naive mindless road trip, dreaming that you'd meet a lot of interesting fellow travelers, but in fact, you'll only meet lot of strangers when you wait in line to pay your gas bills or outside the men's room. Nothing, absolutely nothing interesting or relevant on the road. Nothing! Oh, BTW, your windshield might be hit by a pebble on the highway and crack up with a radiate spreading spider web crack that might block your view when you drive.

The Father

What a great acting by Hopkins!
A very simple storyline, scenario, not even with an interesting enough plot, but this movie is just so good to watch from the very beginning to the end. The script was absolutely great and the movie itself was simply made alive and real by Hopkins alone. He indeed is a great treasure to visual performing art. One more Oscar for him, please!

Anata e

A great movie but
Ken Takakura was just too old to play this role both as jailer and husband. His body looked so frail, his face looked like a 70 to 80 years old person. His image was so old way past retirement at least 10 years. The story was very well written, profound and poetically beautiful. The cinematography was top notched, with subtle directing. All the supporting actors were appropriate and believable. Well, again, if Takakura could be younger about 15 or even 20 years to play this role, it'd have made this movie even greater, he was just too old to play such husband/jailer role.

Border River

one of the worst westerns even made
terrible screenplay, terrible actors, bad and weak screenplay, ridiculous scenarios and plots. there's nothing worth praising whatsoever. guy was chased by soldiers, was shot crossed the river, then woke up in the hotel, then suddenly wearing all custom made new shirt, jacket and pants and hat showed up in the bar, then again, he kept changing into tailor made dresses after finished one scene. those dresses were ironed and pressed and so fit on his body. all the fights were poorly carried out. the dialog and acting by most supporting actors were just overly exaggerated and pretentious to the extreme. you need to turn of your I.Q. to watch this stupid western movie. the heist of the gold about two million dollars worth was another joke. the scenes by the river with stupid quick sand also was just too stupid to watch. all the fighting scenes just looked stupid and fake. there are so many good western movies from 1940 to 1970, but this one definitely is not one of them.

Den röda vargen

Bad screenplay, bad directing, likable actress
this whole series is actually a mediocre one if compares to other mysteries out of Scandinavian TV industries. screenplays were so badly crafted and then further deteriorated by poor directing and editing. the only thing that this series still worth viewing was the main female crime reporter herself, played by Malin Crépin, a female actor who performed naturally, a quite likable persona that viewers would like to watch just because of her. the settings related to her work, those supporting roles in the newspapers were not quite good, the whole series relied heavily on flash back, all crimes had to be rewound back and back again, one by one. it's like Korean TV drama series, characters have to talk to themselves by murmuring all the time to help explaining something that poor screenplays and directors usually could not do. this series also got limited actors to play the roles, we often saw an actor in one episode appeared in the next one with different role, but the face was just too familiar to be smoothly transformed into another one. the whole series only got one above average episode, the one about the Nobel prize murder case. others episodes, like this one and "prime time" were simply too flat, dumb and awkward to be watched, you need two factors that might enable you to complete the whole series: time and patience, i.e., if you got some leisure time to waste and if you got enough patience. otherwise, it's a pain in the neck to watch along.

i was also disgusted by the poor screenplay of this episode that showed the heroine's true color: a news hound without emotion and empathy. she told the tabloid to expose the teenager who was later killed by the serial killer. when she heard that young man was killed because of her, she seemed to give no darn at all; when she saw her longtime boyfriend/husband had an affair, her reaction also not quite like a normal female. the poor screenplay just made her with a robotic personality, a woman only got certain degrees of emotions to her two kids, but remote and almost without any feeling to others.

Tom yum goong 2

the stupidest screenplay hatched out the stupidest film
Jesus on a crutch, what happened to this fantastic martial arts bright star? why he would agree to put himself in this most absurd, ridiculous, clueless insulting film? why wasted so much manpower to churn out such a pathetic, moronic patchwork? this screenplay and the production team had undoubtedly thought that as long as they put tony jaa as the main character in any film, they didn't need to waste time to script any screenplay, just let him do the stunts, allowing more thai stunt people to do more over the top stunts, then the box office would be 100% assured. by watching this horrible film, i have to admit that tony jaa might not have the basic education to distinguish what is good for him or what are the fatal choices for him to sign up films to ruin himself and becomes a public joke. the stupidest thing of this movie was the endless piles of pointless fighting scenes, hiring as many as the low budget could afford those struggling thai stuntmen, male or female, to do the tricks, not absolutely necessary really needed in a film as long as there's tony jaa in it. the first ridiculous 'protector' almost ruined tony jaa, allocated him to Australia to become a so-called 'legend' albeit a joke. that horrible film produced by a horrible screenplay, a brain-dead director has already made tony jaa a ruined actor, and now, without any intelligence, he signed up to do the absolutely un-needed, un-wanted sequel, only confirmed one thing: tony jaa got a very bad and very stupid but at the same time, a very cunning agent, who is just like the boxing matchmaker and promoter, Don King, entrap so many boxing talents, used them like robotic commodities to serve his own greed. tony jaa obviously is also a helpless victim to have such similar agent and on 2nd thought, he might owe a lot to this agent that he could never refuse to play any stupid role in any stupid film. tony jaa, sadly speaking, has become a box office poison, since we the movie goers would try very hard to shy away his next film, if he still got the chance to play another stupid role in another stupid film. my sadness is unfathomable.

A Stolen Life

Highly unlikely
let's say if there is a man who is such a lamer, a weak heart person who never has the guts to walk out of the narrow path of his life to become a real man but is only comfortable to what he is now and won't change a bit, no ambition, calling himself a loner, claiming he does not mind being alone but cannot bear the loneliness, deep down inside of him a timid minded person, a backward person withdrawing himself with stoop shoulders, hiding behind his tobacco pipe to smoke screen his uncertainty of himself. think about a strong headed, strong minded, willful woman, having the urge to conquer, to grab what she like to own, to occupy the mind of male, will she be interested in such a man as what were described as the above? the answer, if logically put, is a big NO. what Glenn Ford played in this film is such a unlikable, unattractive coward person that any woman with strong mind or will would never fall for him, albeit trying to grab him from her soft-minded twin sister. the male character played by Glenn ford if he is just such weak minded person, so easily to be lured away from a kind and gentler woman like Kate and has a sudden change of heart to the evil twin sister Patricia, his fickle mind is quite understandable because he is a lamer who would be easier to be attracted to a more strong-minded female instead of one more like himself. but arranging Patricia to fall for him is highly unlikely; the only possibility is that she wants her gentle twin sister Kate to suffer, she only toys with the man like a game to break her sister's heart. the whole scenario is just like what we see in 'gone with the wind', a strong willful woman falls for a lamer, but the lamer loves another gentle hearted woman. this man who loves Kate first but then falls into the spider-web like trap by Patricia is not a man who worths the love of Kate, yet Kate, a lame woman at first not knowing how to protect what she loves, then tries so hard to become an evil person as her twin sister. what we got here is three blind mice, each fails to know which one is more appropriate for it. the man who does not even know how to distinguish the sisters from each other is definitely a hopeless blind mice, that is why making this film somewhat disgustful to worth watching, because he is not worthy. what these twin sisters find themselves both attracted to this lamer? the women's hearts indeed are so complicated to comprehend.

True Detective

what a lousy 2 episodes already
this HBO drama series is the worst and the most bore-you-to-death series. a very very poor screenplay trying so hard to give you a false impression to imply to you that this is the real deal cult-serial killing murder case investigation. but after patiently watched the beginning two episodes, a two hours going nowhere, snail-crawling, chain-smoking, binge beer drinking, kiss the white buttocks, two deadbeat crime investigators talking who-cares dialog, driving along the country roads shots after shots, questioning some big-deal thought-to-be-relevant victim's relatives, friends and whoever and so on, you still don't know why you would care more to watch this drive-you-nuts lousy series and hang onto it once every week, you just don't know what you should do to survive the 3rd episode. the worst arrangement of this series is mixed the dreary boring investigation with the seemingly internal affairs investigation to one of the partners of this murder case team members. it just gave you an impression that the drinking detective might did something weird or illegal or whatever who-gives-the-sh++t stuff during the investigation and the other family-guy-look-but-also-an-adulterer, the leading detective has to talk to the two black internal affairs guys in the police headquarter(station?), to expose his partner's weird behaviors.

so far, this drama series has already proved to be a 100% bomber, but most the reviewers still cluelessly gave high praises to this boring series. is it because there are two big names to play the main characters or, what? what has made you guys to love this two episodes? just because it's moody? dark? two guys speaking in a twirling southern accent? exotic? what? are you guys serious? it seems to me you guys are like junk food eaters, everything is just so delicious. well, what can i say, dudes? watching your weight.

The Book Thief

Boring and predictable with hollow storyline
borrowed its ideas heavily from 'Diary of Anne Frank', the differences only put an orphan girl into the hands of another poor family for welfare purpose just like American foster care system, making money from the social welfare system. the girl was not hiding in the attic, on the contrary, could attend school regularly. the role of anne frank was cunningly adapted to become a Jewish young man, hiding in the attic first then later staying in the basement for couple of years. the whole movie was just barely watchable with good acting from some of the best old actors. there was nothing great enough to move you or deep enough to touch your soul. the whole storyline was just in the boring rigid predictable straight-lined, and also absurdly with a stupid narrative voice of the 'death'. funny thing was the writings on the walls in the basement and the books in the private library, all in English instead of German language. the whole movie only gave you a going-nowhere hollow story, a plain and numb narration of a story told in the form of a film not far away from a printed book. nothing bad but nothing great either. have expected too much but unfortunately turned out to be just a lukewarm, quite forgettable, pointless film. there's nothing to be praised about like most of the viewers' comments. if you guys were so easily to be satisfied, it would only give those mediocre novelists, screenplay writers, directors not to try harder and do better.

final verdict: a very boring film from a very boring novel, then adapted into a boring screenplay, then directed by a not-quite-talented director. a quite forgettable lukewarm film.

Short Term 12

The going-nowhere child care system
this film is a mixed bag of the American juvenile justice system+juvenile delinquents+youth detention/juvenile hall/foster care system+big brother/sister care system+juvenile boot camp+soup(hell)kitchen. this kind of facilities has dotted all over America for years, but due to the ridiculous budget cuts focus specially on the American education system, the funding and the affordability for such charity-like care system would undoubtedly phase out in the foreseeable future.

this film didn't show us how these big sisters and brothers attained their licenses or certificates to run such facility, they looked more like volunteers instead of professional trained juvenile care service people. the new comer who took a year off to get the first hand experience at this facility without obvious related necessary training was such a overlooked flaw of this film. then, these older young men and young women smoking publicly outdoor was another bad example of how they were not qualified for those kids. then, the leading young woman announced that the black kid who was now at the age of 18 and had to leave the facility, his street-thug like bad attitude toward the new comer also proved that this facility was nothing but a total waste of the tax payers' money. then there's another even younger Latino kid who acted and behaved like bad apple, a doomed to be a street thug when reached at 18, also proved that this facility didn't do any good to transform those juveniles into someones with better, positive, promising future. so what was these kinda facilities that looked more like the 'federal prison for the juveniles without barbwire fences gave these young residents on a daily basis? they were just a bunch of retarded kids who could never get up and get out of bed promptly. they were forced every morning to brush their teeth to start their boring activities. they needed their big sisters to do the hair dresser's job to knit their bibs, or privately shaved their hairy legs in the bathroom, kid with weird hobby of collecting or doing something day in and day out, etc. and etc, how these kids would have anything more practical to deal with their future when they reach 18? those big brother/sister like young men and young women didn't give me any good impression of their capabilities of teaching and guiding their juvenile residents, they themselves also got load of personal problems, they lived on the farm with the younger kids, they were actually no different from those kids, all they could do was to deal with the kids for their daily unpredictable outrages and silly problems, they could not change what these kids would become, they were just a bunch of older aged losers wasting their precious youth hood in an environment blocked and shut out from the real world. when you watched this film, all you could get from it was hopelessness, helplessness, time and money down the drain, a total waste. just two groups of parasites with different ages, blindly probing around hopeless, only made me feel more impotent and despair for the America's future. with so many mindless juveniles more and more each day and every year, i really don't know what would become of this nation and could only predict it would become worse and worse.

i never watched a movie just for how good the performance or acting of the actors, or how good the screenplay crafted, how good the director did. if this film was serious enough, and tried to deliver some subtle message or expose some hidden problems of the social infrastructure, i would try very hard to dig them out. watching movies to me, is a choice and chore between 'sense' and 'sensebility', not just the images shown on the big screen.

Eun-mil-ha-gae eui-dae-ha-gae

this farce is a joke and insult to adult viewers
we are not teenagers who just blindly adore those pretty faced young Korean boys to cash in more dough for the box office. we are adults who need at least some respect from the Korean movie industries treating us still got some brain cells. we are not those immature young groupies who crazily scream out loud and chase behind these young boys with plastic surgeries as fans. we are not those kids who would welcome all the crappy funny productions simply because they are with these idolized young actors with cosmetic surgeries, transformed into female looking youngsters, with ridiculous unbelievable immature brain-dead scenarios, storyline, plots. if you watched this moronic film and couldn't stop crying, it only means that you might be still too young to distinguish bad movies from the good ones. young spies from the north Korea infiltrated to the south? like the Russian did in the cold war, spies all graduated from the 'charm schools' and then sent to America to be sleep agents spying? yeah, right. but sending the hard and tough trained youngsters to the south to live like stupid moron, for years? then ordered them to kill each others for no probable cause, just to serve the north-south détente? yeah, right. one of the young spy was still underage attending high school. yeah, right. and the other one to be a rock singer (not rock star). yeah, right. would tell me how these youngsters would do harms to the south? by jumping on the rooftops as the 'neighborhood watch' volunteers? givemeabreak, will you? and kiddos, don't feel so bad about this tragedy and couldn't stop crying, will you? wipe your nose, get it?

American Hustle

One of the worst films
this film, to me, is a joke and an ultimate insult to the viewers who still got some reasoning abilities and basic taste buds enough to distinguish between good and bad film. first of all, very bad casting that none of the characters looked convincingly enough to be who should be or would be. if you tried to con rich and powerful people, you must let them to believe you were who you were, the con and the scam must allow them to believe it was true enough and profitable enough, because rich and powerful people were not naive and stupid, otherwise, they would never got to the top of the social ladder. the rich and the powerful pack were a special species who usually got a very sensitive nose to smell fishy deals, they were always on the fence to protect themselves, and they always knew they might become the marks of scams. partner with a low class woman and claimed her with London banking connection was the first pitfall of this stupid film, because she didn't have the least believable ingredients to fool people that she was a British, she didn't look like a British, she didn't talk like a British, she didn't show anything that could prove she got the foreign financial connections. it was laughable that she could con any man just by wearing some expensive clothes or showed people with some fake deposit certificate. then, again, all the make-up works were horrible, the hairdos of the cons and the marks, especially the so-called mayor, what funny cartoon character! the horrible screenplay just took everything so conveniently granted, feeding stupid scenarios and plots to viewers like they got no brains, carelessly put together. the male and the female cons only gave you an impression that they were white trash from the trailer parks. the politicians and the mafia, all looked like characters from the disneyland. the storyline, nothing but a project from a high school student, submitted a homework overnight. there's nothing worth praising at all for this film, and after a whole year's viewing experience and the last film watched end of the year, it has spoiled and ruined all the good memory of some good films of 2013. we viewers should be always picky and always got the attitude of not so easy to be pleased or satisfied to any film, because only with such principle, the Hollywood movie industries would take us seriously and never take us for granted as brainless morons that they could keep dumping garbage on us. you should always treat the gangs from Hollywood as con men or scammers, always suspect they might treat you as stupid mark. only by such serious once-bitten-twice-shy viewing attitude, they might have the luck to fool you once, but never twice.

About Time

unrealistically boring and absurd
forget about the time travel, to future or backward, let's get down to something more reasonable: this family is not a millionaire's family. father is a bookworm, mother a typical house wife, son a lamer, daughter a mindless crazy spoiled brat, so how come they could live without any earthly worries, financial wise or money wise? how come they could live in a bubble-like cocoon, live so pretentiously that even the richest people on the earth couldn't live? their life styles, oh, a regular daily activities, sitting or lying on the beach, drinking or daydreaming, sun bath, watching movies outside rain or shine? dining at table, eating and drinking with their obvious stupid and dumb uncle? then the not-quite-like-a-rich-man father told his son one day that all the men in the family got a mysterious gift of time traveling power? they could travel back in time to fix some things they didn't quite like but in general, they could not change the matters, the history, in a larger manner, say, like making Adolf Hitler never born or two world wars never happen? yeah, right, if the screenplay endowed these time-travel-capable lamers with such huge human responsibilities, guess how much budgets they got to spend for the war scenes? so, easily, this lamer son decided to just change his romance experiences. givemeabreak, will you? this is such a stupid and one of the worst movies about time traveling crap. none of the characters in this brain-dead film was convincingly likable because it just built on a ridiculous budget-cut storyline. love or no love for this young lamer's romantic adventures is no compare with 'love actually' and those heart warming or heart aching time travel romances. folks, let's go down to earth to watch some more realistic and reasoning acceptable common romances, such as 'enough talk (2013)', okay? 'cause you don't have to travel in time to get it, or got to watch the film in your backyard garden at night, or in order to give you some more romantic feeling, using rain-making machine to shower you. give it a rest, guys who gave high praises to this stupid British movie, dressed up in a costume to mimic 'love actually'.

Don Jon

stupid and unrealistic
this movie is like young man's wet dream. why once involved some jersey guys, young or old, just like guys from Brooklyn, the way of talk, the facial expressions, the walk, the attitude, the dressing-attire, the hairdos, the relationship between or among men, the....eh...everything that you can think about, especially the mafia way of speaking English, will all suddenly, so easily to predict, turn into such a formulaic accent and intonation.

here, in order to serve the purpose of making the impossible to become possible, a young guy who never seemed to have to work, or never had anything to prove that he had any job. coming from a lower middle class family, with foul-mouthed father, helpless and tiresome mother, a half-dead numb sister, a young man with such pathetic family and financial background, would have so much money and time to hang out with his two pathetic friends, dining in expensive restaurants, fooling around in the cheesy night clubs, driving a classic car....and where he actually lived? his bedroom absolutely didn't like when he ate lunches and dinners at home with his family, where he got the money to pay for the rent, if he didn't do any job, without anything to prove he got the fund for doing anything or doing nothing? how in the world a catholic priest had to listen to his confessions about ridiculous sexual encounters, how many fornication or how many times a week he self-abused himself by watching porn movies? this is such a stupid and so unrealistic wet dream from a miserable screenplay writer who must be like the same guy in the movie, never got a job, living at his parents home, a guy who never got the ability to do anything but trying so hard to become a modern don Juan. what a stupid joke this movie is. Levitt looked exactly like a jerk with a funny face, a likable but a 100% shallow person without any solidity to justify this wet-dreaming imbecile. watching him play such role is a very painful episode of my life.


just a so-so toons
if without the annoying singing again and again, i might give this cartoon a 7 stars, but the singing made me become so impatient and so disgusted that i almost gone crazy. the storyline is okay but not great, mixed with several not quite likable figures, the ugly snowman, the poorly crafted terrible snow monster. all the shapes of moose, wolves, houses, palace, ships, mountains and snow were poorly drafted. the cute kid who was adopted by trolls, later became young man with a long and thick jaw, looked dumb and clumsy, another badly crafted figure. but the worst arrangement of this cartoon is still the drive-you-crazy typical formulaic Disney songs, when those figures in this cartoon suddenly started to sing, i just couldn't help thinking that i was watching a Bollywood Hindi film, because only in Bollywood films, either characters are suddenly dancing or singing without any probable cause. if we evaluate the draft artworks of this cartoon and compares it with 'Epic', 'Despicable Me', or 'Rise of The Guardian', it was like comparing ceramic ware with porcelain wares, 'Frozen' just looks so roughly, hastily drafted and designed. the typical yet annoying Disney songs are actually Bollywood crap that we could always do without.


what a stupid wimp in a lame screenplay
the stupidities in this wimpy movie are just beyond any way to count. first, we see this wimpy guy on a bus which is more like a doomsday bus to hell instead of going to oregon. the exaggerate scenes of a female fellow traveler sitting beside him, keep yelling, cursing, screaming filthy dirty complaints to him, a total stranger, simply not probable at all. then we see two young people doing the sexual thing in public in front of him and other passengers is another absolutely impossible and exaggerated scene so dramatically arranged to give you some thought-to-be interesting episode on the bus is another crap the stupid screenplay trying to make you believe this film is such an unique crap. BUT IT'S NOT, okay? then we see this wimpy young man, a college graduate, trying to drag a huge and heavy empty gas tank into the remote town from the apple farm, that pathetic arrangement is nothing but stupid. then this guy meets a guy in town trying to sell him the idea of god, the so-called c.o.g. crap but he claims that he is an atheist....the stupidity, unnatural scenarios, improbable exaggerations are on and on. and you dare to tell me that you are more thoughtful and more philosophic that you can always appreciate something stupidities and transform them into profound precious living lessons? givemeabreak, will you.

Te shu shen fen

The rare MMA talent was wasted by a lousy screenplay and
bad casting, directing and worst of all, the careless decision by using the every actor's original voice. how could it possible that the mother's tone and accent is pure mandarin Chinese, a northern dialect accent, while the son speaking in cantonese accented Chinese? unless this so-called undercover son is adopted by a hongkongness foster parents and later reunited with his real mother, we could never get used to such big difference of accents between mother and son. and then, this guy's superior officer, my, is such a bad cast, who not in the least like a pencil pusher high ranking police office but an accounting clerk. then, the other two gang-bangers' stereo types are so lame and so formulaic, no big difference from their other roles in so many similar genre movies. i just wish donnie yen and all the cast in this movie speaking pure cantonese that at least the whole movie might look more convincing. but the stupid production people decided to cast a fragile Chinese doll to be the case officer from the mainland china and forced a awkward and embarrassing romance between the hongkongness undercover and her, their scenes just looked so contrite and unnatural. the mother role was also a cast of totally unnecessary. the dialog is also so stupid and contrite. this movie in general is a disaster from the very beginning to the end, simply ruined by a stupid screenplay, wrong cast, wrong accents, wrong arrangements almost every thing. to me, giving this movie 3 stars is already over-rated.
