    Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

    ★★★½

    I came for Vanessa Kirby, I left with a sense of déjà vu for Moana, the Disney movie. The action sequences are pretty enjoyable, but come on, we know it’s all CGI. 

    Make Kirby the new 007, cowards!!!

    ★★★

    There’s some very dark and enjoyable comedy in the first half of this movie, but when the action sets in, it’s basically your typical zombie comedy flick. The kids are adorable though.

    看到快睡著😪😪😪

    演員(除了傅孟柏)的口條很可怕,王淨的網美式咬字我真的無法。大家繞圈圈喊「殺人兇手」的時候我還以為在唱音樂劇。CGI 再次成為大敗筆,很難過台灣電腦動畫的極限原來是這樣(無論是技術或資金)。

    但實在很難苛責這部電影,這是台灣這個世代需要的電影,即便東拼西湊,但至少是奮不顧身、用盡全力去述說一個已快被世代遺忘的悲慘記憶。而且還要擔著被我們這種不顧情面的人批評的風險。

    但這部片目前已經打破票房紀錄了,穩居台灣有史以來首週末票房前四名的國片。我想,這作為他的第一部長片,導演徐漢強已經成功了。而以同樣的標準看待、評量所有的電影,不僅是我對他的尊重,也是對電影的尊重。

    而且這部片的攝影、音效、美術也真的是上乘之作了,特別是攝影,如何在大部分都是黑暗的場景掌握光源的穩定和變化、確保角色的辨識度,以及重現遊戲經典畫面,是非常難兼顧的。配樂雖然原創性沒這麼突出(有點太像《我們》了),但以真實樂器錄製(而非電子合成)已誠意十足。

    然後白教官根本就是韓國瑜吧?

  • Ad Astra

    ★★★★

    All dealing with lonely men in space, this brooding introspection by Jame Gray hangs somewhere between the straightforward yet emotionally impactful First Man, and the much more incomprehensible but lyrical High Life. Ad Astra mostly achieves what it set out to do while pushing galactic imagery to even greater wonder. Stylish almost to a fault, the film confidently takes you on a mostly silent and retracted journey, and the loneliness eventually creeps up on you. 

    Pitt deserves credit for a convincing…
