  • The Grandmaster

    The Grandmaster 2013

    ★★★ Watched 11 Feb, 2014

    This movie, for lack of a better explanation, is very Chinese.
    With that I do not mean the dialogue or even the setting, much more the style everything was brought to life.
    This is highly stylized look is mostly a result of Kar Wai Wong's Auteur style of filmmaking. This is what gives this movie a tad extra.

    This movie was quiet difficult for me to follow, and I will freely admit that I didn't get half of the stuff…

    Dallas Buyers Club 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 10 Feb, 2014

    Yes, just yes.

    This was movie was just beautiful.

    I liked it!

    ★★★★ Watched 13 Jan, 2013

    Seriously, I didn't know that human fists could move at that speed, so awesome!
    First of all, let me say this. I, for one, am kinda "obsessed", no obsessed is to hard core. I am very interested in Oriental culture, let's put it that way. I love how their culture is based on age old tradition, and that honour is such an important part of their lives.

    ANYWAYS, 'nuff said 'bout me. How about the movie?
    Well, it was…
