The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness / 夢と狂気の王国 movie review / レビュー 

The Good: Great insight on Studio Ghibli. Greater understanding on the workings of the studio and also the thoughts of Hayao Miyazaki during the production time of The Wind Rises. Casual tone and atmosphere with the Studio Ghibli people.

The Bad: Lack of involvement from Isao Takahata and this seems more focuse on Miyazaki rather than on the three men who’s on the poster.  Really banks on audiences having watched both The Wind Rises and The Tales of Princess Kaguya to get the most out of this film. 

Storyline:

With near-unfettered access inside the studio, Sunada follows the key personnel at Ghibli - director Hayao Miyazaki, producer Toshio Suzuki and the elusive “other” director, Isao Takahata - over the course of approximately one years as the studio rushes to complete their two highly anticipated new films, Miyazaki’s The Wind Rises and Takahata’s The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya. The result is glimpse into the inner workings of one of the most celebrated animation studios in the world and a portrait of their dreams, passion and dedication that borders on madness.

Locke / 洛克 movie review / 電影評論 (cantonese ver.) 

The Good: Great performance from Tom Hardy. Authentic and convincing voice-acting from the voice-actors.  Cinematography is great in keeping your attention despite the ‘tame’ premise.

The Bad: A sub-plot could have been portrayed differently so it is more in line with the rest of the movie. 

Storyline:

A single phone call causes the life of a successful construction manager to unravel during his drive home.

Hong Kong Student Protest Live Stream

The situation in Hong Kong is dire. This may be the last chance for the people of Hong Kong to fight for the freedom and democracy that they deserve. If you believe in freedom, fairness, and justice, I urge you to take a stance with Hong Kong, so it may not become a place of oppression and corruption.’

Boyhood / 少年時代 movie review / 電影評論 (cantonese ver.) 

The Good: Great cast and cast chemistry. History in the making in the history of cinema.  Interesting style of storytelling.  Authentic and believable. 

The Bad: The movie ended. Would have like to see him age even more but no serious issues. One note would be that some audiences would find this movie dry as in nothing really ‘happens’ throughout the film that would stand out as the movie does feel like a normal life of a boy and his life has the ‘usual’ problems and that might be considered a flaw/problem. 

Storyline:

Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater’s Boyhood is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason, who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Boyhood charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay’s Yellow to Arcade Fire’s Deep Blue. Boyhood is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It’s impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.
