Sorry, been busy with holidays stuff and also overwhelmed with all the guys, so I’m taking a break ’cause, blogging > men. Blogging would never disappoint you, in blogging we can trust and the pleasure of it also lasts longer.
That said, I’ve watched few more film this week:
BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL
A man who can’t be killed teams up with a young girl to avenge the murder of her family… Because nothing says Christmas like watching a blood fest of revenge!
That’s the story of Takashi Miike’s adaptation of the famous manga Blade of the Immortal, a film that’s basically a samurai fan’s wildest dream come true.
It runs over two hours, and it’s filled with insane battles, crazy weapons, blood, tears, and more blood. Basically everything about it rules.
I’m walking paradox… While I don’t accept violence in real life, I love violent films with twisted humour… Specially when evil bastards pay.
Glorious, violent and completely relentless!
THE ZOOKEEPER’S WIFE
I had to watch this film after reading the book… I didn’t expect much and it did well ’cause the film adaptation of this horrific real-life story left me pretty meh!
I adore Jessica Chastain but I have no clue why they chose her to play the role of Antonina Zabinski. I hate when they chose American actors to play foreign roles with terrible bad accents when the world is vast and great actors exist around the globe in all languages.
That said, this movie would have better served with subtitles ’cause from times you spend more time trying to understand the spoken words than feeling the Holocaust… See, you react more to the killing of animals than humans you know something’s amiss.
If it’s remembered at all, it will be seen as a missed opportunity to tell a powerful story.
This movie may well make you a vegetarian…
Okja is the story of a young girl who travels the globe to save her massive but adorable monster friend from becoming processed meat is both a great adventure, a touching love story, and a biting commentary.
It begins on an idyllic mountain farm in rural South Korea, moves to Seoul for a massive amount of destruction, breaks your heart in a hellish laboratory in New Jersey, and visits a too-slick marketing stunt in New York.
Despite the overacting and lack of subtlety, this is a touching film that benefits from astonishing visual effects and offers a welcome ecological message about the exploitation of science and atrocities committed against animals for profit to the detriment of people’s health.
